My space for random thoughts, reblogs, hot guys, and my current Stucky obsession.

Clint has given each Avenger a name in sign language.  Thor is the letter ‘T’ in the motion of a hammer.  Steve is a salute with an “R”. Hulk is an “H” over the bicep, but Bruce is the sign for doctor followed by the letter “B”.  Natasha is an “N” being shot from his other wrist like a widow bite. His own name is a “C” being drawn back like a bow.  Stark is an “S” taking flight, unless Barton is mad at him, then he fingerspells “A.S.” for Anthony Stark, but accidentally on purpose adds a second “S”. 

actually this is how giving names work in sign language! usually you sign the first letter of the persons name and a motion that summarises them as a person, or something that reminds you of them!

Fascinating… what would Bucky and Sam be, I wonder?

Bucky is a “B” taken up to the forehead like a salute (so far, like Steve)—but then when he touches his forehead, he switches to the “I love you” symbol. Natasha notices right away.  It takes months for anyone else to notice; and when it happens, it’s Tony, who misunderstands and thinks Clint means he loves Bucky.  Tony’s “A-S-S” becomes Clint’s default choice.
Sam, I have to think about.  I suspect someone else could come up with something fabulous…

i’m not deaf, so i don’t really feel comfortable giving people sign names, but *if i were clint*, i’d have sam’s be the “S” handshape against the heart, then sort of moving out and around from left to right in a horizontal circle. so it looks sort like of how you make a collective sign, like ‘you all’.

Yep.

Steve controls metal, Bucky….. doesn’t give a shit.

Sargent Barnes & Corporal Bucky Bear. Congratulations, Cap!
Inspired by this post.

Somehow Clint Barton got a hold of this ancient relic of the past and posted it on his Tumblr.
Tumblr promptly crashed.  Again. 
Steve got congratulated on his firstborn cub…. again.  And received cigars and chocolates in the mail.
Bucky also got congratulations and the best wishes for his health, which bewildered him completely until he found The Picture.  He promised Natasha that he would not actually murder Clint but he would get Clint to cry uncle. 
The Winter Soldier never failed a mission yet (well, unless it involved anything that would harm Steve Rogers, but everyone knew about the exception already). 
Tony threw an impromptu a Baby Bear Shower - alas, Pepper was trying to put out some metaphorical fires in one of the Stark plants out of state.  So Pepper left him to Bucky’s tender mercies. 
The Original Bear was found, by Rhodey of all people.  Peggy had given the Bear to a little Tony and it had been his favorite and well-loved toy until he was about seven years old.  So Tony managed to save himself from the wrath of Bucky Barnes by reuniting Corporal Bucky Bear with his very surprised and touched “parents.”  A toy restoration group managed to bring the Bear back to as near as original condition as he can get, complete with his blue peacoat, SSR wing insignia and even a toy rifle. 
Captain Barnes and Mrs. Rogers were persuaded to pose with Corporal Bear - Steve was actually balancing the Bear on his shoulders with a goofy smile on his face.  Bucky reached up to make sure the Bear wouldn’t fall off, all too obviously trying not to laugh his ass off.  He posted the picture on his own Tumblr. 
Tumblr promptly crashed again.
At this point, staff redoubled their offerings to the Elder Gods.  This was getting ridiculous.

Note:  Um.  I did a little divergence.  I should be sorry for spawning more Stucky universes on myself but apparently I can’t help it anymore!

The unsung heroes.

That was one of the most horrifying, painful, beautiful parts of the movie.  So many of them weren’t prepared, so many were administrators who had no clue that the STRIKE teams had turned, let alone that a killing machine like the Winter Soldier was on the loose.  

So many of them died.

And yet none of them hesitated.  Despite the propaganda Pierce had unleashed, despite their orders, despite everything, they still responded.  Their sacrifice, their heroism - they gave the last full measure of devotion, and I can’t imagine that Steve wouldn’t attend the memorial service, even if he had to use a wheelchair or a cane because his own wounds hadn’t finished healing.

"Captain’s orders" indeed.

without these people, there IS no Captain America.

As the Cap said before, the difference between a team and a bunch of guys with guns is trust in each other.

Honestly, some of the biggest heart in this movie came from these unsung heroes. The third row of GIFs is one of my favorite segments in the film.

I just read Unwanted Celebrity and I loved it! I need those photos of Bucky to be a real thing and in my life yesterday. Amazing-I could picture them so clearly. Gotta go read more now. Read CFM a while ago- one of my favorites.

kryptaria:

Thank you! You know, when writing the photoshoots in Unwanted Celebrity, I was nervous that readers would get bored, especially during some of the longer ones.

On the other hand, zooeyscigar says:

i enjoyed them so much i figured people couldn’t ever get bored of imagining what bucky looked like in them. we all stare at photos so much, it seemed logical.

Which just goes to prove that I’m entirely capable of being wrong, and it’s a damned good thing I listened to him. :)

The photoshoot scenes were my favourite parts of Unwanted Celebrity, partly because they were beautifully written, and partly because I’m a wannabe photographer who wishes that those shoots were real. I’d be the first one to volunteer as Steve’s assistant :P 

everybodyilovedies:

Can you imagine Sebastian Stan getting the script for Cap 1 and being like “oh hey, check out what a ladies’ man I am! Look at all the chicks I’m scoring! No more sad gay boys for Sebastian!”

And then he gets the script for Cap 2.

"Well fuck.”

I’d be hoping that the script for Cap 3 will turn that into being a happy gay boy role for Sebastian, eh?

sonickitty:

Does anyone else feel like the “I had a date” line had a double meaning?

He set a date with Peggy, but Bucky was the one he was planning to see.

Always been my headcanon. He thought he was going to die, so he  was going to have a ‘date’ with Bucky, who he thought was dead. And when he woke up, he said “I had a date” and was upset, because he was alive and he thought Bucky was dead..

Steve name me one time between Basic and going into the ice that you actually followed orders. ONE. TIME.

I have feelings about this.  I’m supposed to be doing work, but its hard, so I’m gonna explain them instead.  Right from the start of CA:TFA we see that Steve really specifically wants to be a soldier.  He knows there’s all sorts of various ways to support the war effort, but not, specifically he wants to fight on the front lines.  

But Steve is never a particularly good soldier, in fact, he very specifically isn’t a good soldier.  Steve is a good man not a perfect soldier.  Steve NEVER has any success when he tries his hand at being a regular soldier, or even a supersoldier.  In CA:TFA he ends up working with the Howling Commandos, almost entirely outside of the regular military structure and that’s when he manages all the serious heroics and really lives up to his potential.  In Avengers at the beginning he tries to be a good soldier for a while and tries to follow Fury’s orders, but for the first half of the movie Steve is lost and miserable and visibly hiding behind his USO Tour “Captain America” persona.  But its only when he goes off on his own, breaks into store rooms and steals Fury’s proto-type tesseract weapons, that he really gets anything done (before that he gets batted about by Loki and sort of wanders about at loose ends), and he doesn’t really get back into a leadership role and really become actual Captain America again, until he steals a quinn jet with Natasha and Clint.

And despite that, in CA:WS he’s back at Shield, trying to be ‘the greatest soldier in history’ and ‘follow orders’, and… not doing that at all…

So where does Steve’s abortive fascination with being a good soldier come from?

Partly I think its an expression of his very obvious depression.  I’ve seen about umpteen criticisms of Steve’s ‘we have our orders’ line to Tony in Avengers but I think that the fact its out of character is the point.  Steve is miserable, and lost, he doesn’t know what makes him happy, he doesn’t know what he wants to do with himself so he follows Nick Fury’s orders, because he has given up.  

But also I think that even though Steve doesn’t really want to be the sort of person who follows orders, he to a certain extent wants to want it, sort of as the equivalent of a very bright girl who plays dumb in class because she’s been told no one likes smart girls.  The good soldier is very much the model of ideal masculine success that Steve would have grown up with but wouldn’t have ever been able to achieve   

Which is ironic given that the ideal male icon most of the cast of the Avengers probably grew up with… is Captain America.

I love Steve for being Steve, who’s still the good man who tries his best to do what is right (Which is why Erskine chose him), and the boy from Brooklyn who wouldn’t run away from a fight (Which is why Bucky follows him).

And he’s also a (super)human who needs a hug.
