  • Someone: what are you thinking about, you okay?
  • What I say: oh um, nothing, im fine!
  • What I mean: i just am still so blown away by the conviction and determination with which Bucky Barnes said 'No! Not without you!' in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) dir. Joe Johnston. He literally slams his hand down on the railing in frustration when he hears Steve say 'Just go, get out of here!'. The facility is falling down around him, everything is literally on fire and staying means certain death, but the idea of leaving there without Steve is completely unfathomable to him, it's so inconceivable that he's angry that Steve would even suggest such a thing. Bucky said he was with him right up to the very end and if this was the end of the line for Steve then it would be for him too and I'm just so overwhelmed by their commitment to each other.

‘Mistress America’, Noah Baumbach (2015)

I think I’m sick, and I don’t know if my ailment has a name. It’s just me sitting and staring at the internet or the television for long periods of time, interspersed by trying to not do that and then lying about what I’ve been doing. And then I’ll get so excited about something that the excitement overwhelms me and I can’t sleep or do anything and I just am in love with everything but can’t figure out how to make myself work in the world.
