The unsung heroes.
Do you wanna know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can’t savor all the little emotions. You see, in their last moments, people show you who the really are. So in a way I knew your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?

#THIS IS THE VERY WORST THING#OKAY?#BECAUSE HE JUST GOT STEVE BACK#AND FOR A SECOND HE WAS WILLING TO BELIEVE HE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH THIS#BUT NOW THAT STEVES TRAPPED#BUCKY IS REALIZING NOT ONLY THAT STEVE COULD DIE#BUT THAT HE WILL AS WELL#BECAUSE GOD KNOWS HE’LL STAND HERE AND BURN RATHER THAN LEAVE STEVE BEHIND
#oof #stevebucky #and add that to the emotional enhancements of both serums from that meta and like #oh god???? #all of that feeling all at once #he must’ve felt like he was dying #faced with the possibility that steve might die #oh go d #bucky barnes (via spontaneousfangasm)
I’M NOT CRYING YOU’RE CRYING
bucky says you can’t die if you’re wearing the wrong dog tags (“it’s just not allowed”), and it’s part-joke, part-superstition, part-something else he can’t name
they start trading dog tags before missions as a silent promise to each other that they’ll both make it back in one piece, and eventually, they just stop trading back. something about carrying bucky’s name against his skin makes steve feel safer, braver
when bucky falls he takes steve’s name with him into the abyss instead of his own
steve still has bucky’s name around his neck when they pull him out of the ice
#(see? bucky says—years later; after the ice. after the torture. after the ruin and the war.) #(what did i tell you kid. my name around your neck—i’m not gonna let you die.) #(yeah? steve asks. his palm pressed over the place where bucky’s heart is beating.) #(and what about my name around yours?) #(bucky considers. touches the metal; metal fingertips.) #(your name? he says. slowly.) #(your name will bring me back from the dead.) (from srgebarnes)
I like to go full bore into something. If you have a backup plan, then you’ve already admitted defeat.
Steve ‘did it hurt - a little’ Rogers
#/SCREAMS ABOUT HOW SKINNY!STEVE’S CHRONIC PAIN PROBABLY FUCKED UP HIS PERCEPTION OF PAIN FOR LIFE #STEVE ROGERS ‘OKAY YEAH THAT’S UNPLEASANT’ WOULD PARALYSE ANYONE ELSE #AND THAT’S NOT THE SERUM #THAT’S SKINNY STEVE THROUGH AND THROUGH (via beccabuchanans)
Don’t even start me on the fact he’s spent his whole life trying not to make a big deal of when he’s ill. He doesn’t want pity or sympathy. He doesn’t wanted to be treated like he’s weak. He doesn’t want to be looked down on because ‘he can’t take it’.
You only ever hear Steve Rogers scream once, and when he thinks people think he’s being weak, he stops and never screams again. Not unless you count the moment he sees Bucky fall to his death.
People casually calling Chris Evans ‘Captain’ is my new favorite thing. [x]
I love that Bucky and Sam are in this. You’re doing this right.
Bucky and Sam are Avengers and no one can tell me otherwise
in an effort to “get caught up,” Steve becomes the pop culture junkie of the group
he lives for the looks of confusion on other people’s faces and makes increasingly obscure references in a not-so-subtle attempt at revenge
some are born hipsters, some achieve hipsterdom and some become hipsters fOR VENGEANCE
