OC Name: Isabella Paulson*
"Honestly, Disney movies are really overrated."
Isabella Paulson never really saw the magic to Disney movies the way others did. She just never really could understand the hype to the films. Or the so-called magic of Disneyland. Yeah, it's just not really her thing.
Chris Evans loves Disney movies with his whole heart. A "must" on the list of qualities he wants whoever he ends up with to have is that person being a Disney-lover too, or at least open to watching Disney movies together and putting up with him singing along.
Neither really know much about the other, only being vaguely aware of the fact that they exist, until Isabella gets cast in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who assists the heroes in taking down both HYDRA and S.H.I.E.L.D. The comics feature a romance between Bucky Barnes and Isabella's character, which will be featured in later films.
On set, Isabella's attention doesn't turn to her on-screen romance and fast forming best friend. Instead, Chris catches her eye and she catches hers.
At first it's just a fling, then the press gets wind of it and Chris and Isabella have to find a way to get ahead of it.
Chris's big idea?
Fake a relationship.
Isabella hesitantly agrees to it and soon enough the pair is announcing their fake relationships, getting ahead of the tabloid gossip.
Things get complicated when fake feelings start becoming real.
↪So not immediate romance, some friends with benefits type stuff first and then gradually they start to fall for each other.
↪The whole Disney movie thing becomes an ongoing joke in their relationship. Constant playful debates about whether or not the movies are good, Chris trying to get Isabella to binge watch Disney movies with him, and maybe even the first "romantic" interaction being Chris being homesick or something and Isabella sets aside her annoyance with Disney movies to cuddle and watch them with him.
↪social media and real life, preferably but if you'd rather it just be real life that works too.
↪Sebastian, Anthony, and Isabella end up being really close friends.
