I don’t have anyone else to be

lurknomoar:

I want an AU in which the Winter Soldier doesn’t remember anything (apart from a vague sense of familiarity sometimes) and he deliberately impersonates Bucky.

He choses to do that because with his handlers gone he has nowhere to go, and he remembers Steve’s adamant refusal to hurt him, and this unbearable anomaly is the first thing that shocked him in seventy years, the first thing that actually makes him think.

He gathers information from the Smithsonian, textbooks, archives, the internet, and then lets Steve find him. He admits that his memories were wiped, but his perceptive, serum-enhanced brain is quick at picking up details from Steve’s remarks, to tease out the right answer from the question itself. The first time Steve asks him something he really can’t answers he is terrified to say ‘i don’t know’ and astonished that Steven doesn’t punish him for it, just smiles a little sadly. It takes him weeks to realize that he cannot get caught, he cannot make mistakes because Steve will accept whatever he says and forgive him whenever he is weak and he doesn’t get it, he doesn’t get it but he wants it more than he can say.

He feels more and more guilty about the lie he built, and if it was only for his own good, he would already have come clean. But Steve takes care of him, gives him nice-tasting food and a warm bed to sleep in and a shower where he can rinse seventy years off blood off his skin and a steady hand on his shoulder, and the least he can do for Steve is to give him his friend back. He has a new mission now and that is pleasing Steve - he watches Steve for nostalgic smiles and cold disappointment, and he trains himself like people train dogs, teaching himself broad smiles and coarse language just so Steve can believe he has his friend back.

#i always thought that little tug of his jacket#trying to make sure he looked perfect#was funny#until i remember that he grew up feeling like a stranger on his own planet#and had to fight for every bit of respect that he earned#(which was still a hell of a lot less than he deserved)#and how he was probably conscious of himself and his appearance one hundred percent of the time#because he was already an outcast#and he certainly didn’t need anything //else// to draw attention to himself#haha#suddenly it’s not so funny anymore (via arthurpoo)

constant-instigator:

Also, just throwing this out there to make people sad, but…
When he’s thawed out he’s laying down. He was frozen laying down. And the plane hit the water when he was in the pilot seat- we saw that.
Which means he wasn’t knocked out by the initial impact. And it doesn’t look like he drowned, either. He had time to see his expected death coming, after the impact, and lay himself down. My guess is some internal injuries from the crash, followed by freezing to death inside the plane.
So just go ahead an add a little scene in your head of Steve surviving the crash, but knowing that wet and isolated on a field of ice, in a plane that’s still sinking, nobody would get to him in time. But he knows he’s done his job. So he lays down, and closes his eyes, and maybe wonders if anyone will ever find his body, and bring it back to be buried by his mom and dad, since Bucky never was buried. But either way they’ll have a service for him, and that will be nice, and the priest will say the words and he’ll be at rest. And he feels bad, leaving his men, and he regrets everything he never told Peggy, and that he won’t be there for her now, but at least he did his part, right? He got the job done, and that’s what counts. If he dies alone, bleeding out and freezing, that’s all that Bucky got, to. So that’s all right.

give me hogwarts hijabis or give me death

give me cultural and religious diversity among students. does the school accommodate them, or refuse to acknowledge their existence? do immigrant magical parents (or parents of muggle-born wizards,) struggle with sending their children to hogwarts because of the cultural differences? do witches and wizards of non-european descent know different spells and magical traditions from their families, and try to bring these up or share them with their friends?

give me celtic students despising the latin spells they have to learn

"give me celtic students despising the latin spells they have to learn"

Can we talk about how I have been known to cry because hogwarts is in fucking SCOTLAND, the land that looked at roman invaders and were like “lol no bitch”, and yet it’s run by the English ministry teaching roman spells.
Give me celtic students sneaking out to the forest to have a nice talk with the trees. Give me students with the second sight setting out milk for the fae that live in the common rooms. Give me muggle-borns using spells that have been in their family for ages even if the ministry doesn’t recognize their format.

i need gael students flat-out arguing with their dada professors because of misrepresentation of indigenous fae and erasure of their gaidhlig spells

"Maybe the pixies bite you bc you don’t treat them with respect."

i have a lot of feels about this

Chris Evans doing his own stunts on “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”…

He’s also clearly doing the bulk of the fighting in the footage they’ve released so far.  Ditto the rest of the cast - they really went out of their way to make this as real as possible.

Forever reminded of the commentary for The First Avenger where they discuss how Chris Evans moves and runs and how unique it is, how much it’s like a dancer (because he did dance as a kid and he brings that shit naturally) and how they eventually decided to try and have him do as much as possible, especially the running, because his physical characteristics and movements are really hard to duplicate. That clearly carries over to The Winter Soldier.
Who Chris Evans is and how he moves, is now who Steve Rogers is and how Steve Rogers moves. I think he demonstrates that even more in this movie with all the extra training he went through and the input he had on the fighting style and shield use. Not to discount the awesome and vital work from the stunt people, though, who are an integral part of the whole thing. And they had their work cut out for them trying to match the uniqueness of Chris. I’m sure they did it perfectly.

I love how in one of the featurettes for TFA they talk about how Chris’s physicality informed the motion of the shield and not the other way around, how he gave them the movement and that determined how the shield was thrown and handled in general.
I just really cannot imagine how anyone else could’ve been Steve Rogers, he plays him so well on both an emotional and physical level in ways that are so subtle (because that in itself is Steve) that I don’t think casual viewers even fully appreciate it.

And it fits in perfectly with 616 Steve, who was not only a superbly trained commando, but a skilled gymnast whose fighting style was acrobatic, graceful, and fluid.  MCU Steve fights like combat is a deadly ballet, and it’s wonderful to see, especially in that battle on the Lemurian Star.
