#looking down and to the right is associated with emotional responses tied to memory and a person’s concentration on their internal dialogue #so this is probably the first time the winter soldier’s heard bucky barnes’ voice in his head in nearly seventy years #(⊙ ‿ ⊙ ✿) #i’ll never be happy again
just fyi: I’m leaving for Montreal tomorrow and will probably have limited internet access (because I killed my data allowance for April already, lolsob) until I get back on Sunday, so if there’s something you want me to see (e.g. roboporn or whatever) the best way to get in touch with me would be twitter (@deepsixv) or email (deepsixv at gmail). my queue will still be doing its thing, though.
friendly reminder, since I’m actually FINALLY leaving now.
zarhooie keeps sending me sad emails about how “When You Were Young” is a perfect Bucky song, so I drew her Bucky’s reaction when The Killers come on the radio at McDonalds.
Captain America was so unrealistic. You honestly expect me to believe they put the flash drive in the right direction on the first try every time.

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
one of the most interesting things about Cap2 to me is that a thread of shared experiences ran through the entire movie. It would’ve been very easy to narratively set Steve apart from everyone else in the movie, especially because Steve…
We’re probably having it because you directly stated that Steve’s life got derailed - and therefore his character arc magically stopped - because Bucky showed up.
That is what you said.
And that is some bullshit.
And you can spew some more of it, but at the end of the day, all you are doing by doing so is erasing the importance of the other people in Steve’s life and the character arc that he actually went through.
Bucky is a mission and an important one, but yes, Steve can be “recovered” just fine without him. Steve is not going to be any more “recovered” when Bucky is part of his life again than he would before.
Basically, you are erasing the importance of Sam Wilson with a bullshit argument, so maybe you could stop. Because Bucky is very important, but so is Sam, and with all your whining about how poor Steve’s recovery was derailed, you are essentially erasing Sam’s role in the film. Which.Was.Being.Part.of.Steve’s.Recovery.
um…no. That is literally not what I said. I said his recovery story got derailed, which is something else entirely. I said that this NARRATIVE ARC, which is a STORYTELLING ELEMENT, got derailed. I’m talking about the tragedy of the movie as a movie, not the tragedy of Steve Rogers’ life. I’m saying that the story that the movie tells stops moving in the same direction it previously did, because it’s no longer about how Steve is moving forward in the 21st century without the shackles of the 1940s, and instead becomes about how he’s going to deal with the 21st century while still being chased by his past.
That doesn’t mean that Steve stops moving in that direction, because Steve doesn’t think he’s in a movie. He’s not telling a story; he’s just living a life. Obviously Sam is extremely important to him + his personal journey, and that doesn’t change just because Bucky shows up.
There’s a major difference between what’s important to Steve and what’s important to the story the MCU is telling and you seem to be incapable of distinguishing between them. Stop putting words in my mouth.
