bucky and steve spend so much time making fun of sam for being a slow runner that they jog straight into the elaborate traps natasha had set up 4 hours earlier. natasha drives off with sam while bucky and steve are left to contemplate their mistakes in life.
I am so here for CA:TWS stories that examine the fact that Sam is at a different point in his life than Steve is, that even though we get to see Sam as a goofy, exuberant flyboy, he’s also someone who has crossed a river that Steve has only come to the bank of: stepping outside of his soldierness and confronting how to live in the world with what he’s lost and what he’s done. The scene at the VA suggests that Steve comes to him in search of a guide as well as a friend. Sure, Steve’s seen and done things that Sam can’t imagine, but Sam has also done one important thing that Steve is only starting to imagine, which is making peace with himself as a soldier and a human being.
It’s pretty interesting that Sam is essentially a happy character, generous and trusting, and that he has no problems going back into battle, bringing the battle to his home. We know that he’s suffered a lot, enough to make him lose all sense of purpose. But when we see him, he’s not suffering. Unlike most of the MCU heroes at this point, he’s not in the thick of warring with his trauma. And while there are a lot of pointed questions you can ask about the politics of his character, I think it’s important that he’s there in the film to show that there is a peace to make with trauma. That it’s possible to suffer, and not suffer for the rest of your life; that it is actually possible to come out the other side of grief.
But also: that it’s not some magical transformation, that it doesn’t happen through love or by chance. I feel like we get a really clear sense of a Sam who has worked incredibly hard to be the person he is. We see him leading a recovery group! It’s like: Yeah. He’s been through this. And it’s like the opposite of grimdarkness, because what it’s putting up there on the screen is the idea that trauma is real, and major, and crippling, and it’s not going to just go away— but you can live through it, live with it, and learn to be a happy human being.
And that’s one of the reasons Sam is awesome. And there should be more stories about that.
ur very cute and very far away please come be cute closer to me
what if shinies were considered bad in the wild since it meant they will get killed easier, which would explain why there are so hard to find…
I really really really like this logic with wild shinies. Especially ‘cause this is how it basically works with albino/mutated colors in animals the wild. they may be pretty to us but they’re easier for predators to spot
Shades of light Blues & Purples- beautiful & calming
straight girls tho, do you ever get confused by your sexuality because not only do men suck but also like 90% of women are fucking bombshells and only like 20% of men are like most chicks could pass for models and most men could pass for bridge trolls i mean wow
there is nothing that makes me distressed more than someone DOING A THING WRONG IN MY HOUSE
case in point our guest keeps washing up and i understand that its nice to help but SHE IS DOING IT WRONG and it drives me up the fucking wall i literally had to leave the room because i felt like i wanted to scream. i know i’m going to spend the whole night resisting the urge to redo it like. i’m going to wake up at 4am and be like “maybe i should wash that stuff up again???”
and she keeps putting things away too and she PUTS THEM IN THE WRONG PLACE OR AWAY TH WRONG WAY AND i cant i cant handle it
this never bothers me with friends but i feel like i cant talk to her to tell her how to do it right because that would be Rude because she’s a stranger and anyway she doesnt listen. like i tried to drop so many fucking hints for her to not wash the dishes and literally said “dont wash up yet i’ll do it in a second” but as soon as i walked away to grab something she did it anyway like who fucking does that
no one ever live with me i’m so fucking neurotic
I used to love astronomy as a kid. Unfortunately, I sucked at its practical implementation.
what if instead of a same gender detective partnership who keep getting mistaken for a romantic couple, you had a same gender romantic couple who keep getting mistaken for detectives
‘hello, I’m sam darling, and this is my partner gregory hitch’ ‘AH YES THE PRIVATE DETECTIVES’ ‘what??? no we just came for some ice cream why is there police tape everywhere’
They start solving crimes anyhow. And it turns out they have a knack for it.
