#YO CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS#LIKE YO#YO YO YO SON#Steve#okay maybe steve did hate his body a little bit#how it was weak and got sick so often#and how people juswt passed over him most of the time and how they put him down#maybe he did hate all that back then but now that he’s seen the other side?#how because of how he looks and what he can do and just WHO HE IS NOW#no one believes he could have been that little scrawny kid#and everyone just looks at him and sees this person who looks like what everyone wants to be#and i think steve kind o misses having to prove himself?#because he doesnt have to anymore#people just take him at his word they believe him they’ll follow captain america into the jaws of death#what they dont realize is that he’s still that little guy from brooklyn who was too dumb to run away from a fight#and that’s#maybe who he always wanted to be#really#now that he has had the chance to live the other half#not that he doesnt love being able to affect the world and make a difference#but personally if it was jsut about him#i 100% believe steve would be comfortable in his old body#the body he learned how to fight in and say ‘fuck you world not today’ in#that little kid from brooklyn who was too dumb to run away from a fight but still managed to surround himself with people like bucky and peg#peggy and erskine#and maybe#maybe he needs to remember that kid more often when he’s getting so caught up in being captain america#and he’s probably thinking#thinks#a lot about erskine’s words via im-the-asshole-that.
WAIT WHAT THE HELL TUMBLR I HAD MORE TAGS THAN THAT GO TO YOUR ROOM PLEASE REMOVE THIS APPARENT TAG LIMIT. I SAID MORE ABOUT HOW STEVE THINKS ABOUT HOW ERSKINE SAID A WEAK MAN WHO HAS NEVER KNOWN POWER
ABOUT HOW IF HE HAD BEEN BORN INTO POST SERUM BODY HE MIGHT NOT HAVE ALL THE QUALITIES THAT MAKE HIM CAPTAIN AMERICA RIGHT. BECAUSE HE LEARNED IT ALL IN THAT NINETY POUND ASTHMATIC SCOLIOSTIC IMMUNO COMPRIMISED BODY.
And how maybe he’s grateful, now that he’s further removed from it all.
How he’s grateful and more than that, he’s proud. Like. damn right I was such a stubborn shit. I fucking had to be, didn’t I? Thanks, preserum me. Thanks.
There are two little boys outside my apartment building playing Captain America and Winter Soldier, and — I’m not even IN MCU fandom, but this seems very accurate — they are just taking turns carrying each other to an imaginary safe-zone, bridal style.
My dream for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is that it starts out with each of the Avengers getting a call early in the morning that they need to come in, and when they get to Clint, they’re like, “We still don’t have Romanoff’s new location, so if you have a way of contacting her, pass the message to her as well.” Clint replies, “I’ll see if I can track her down,” and hangs up the phone. Then he rolls over in bed and is like, “Hey Nat, get up, they need us.”
