people say “if you don’t lower your standards, you’re gonna end up spending your whole life alone!” like being a healthy, happy, financially independent single adult is actually worse than being stuck in an abusive and/or emotionally unfulfilling relationship with someone who isn’t willing/able to meet your needs. like no offense, but I think I’m gonna choose to be happy rather than throwing myself into a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship.
Okay, I want to talk about something. I think about this a lot; ever since Captain America: Civil War came out. And anytime someone says Bucky is a villain.
This particular scene hits me like a ton of bricks.
This part absolutely rips my heart to shreds. Bucky wanted to get away from everything. He was trying so hard to stay low and try to live in the dark; run away from his life with Hydra. A life he didn’t choose nor want; he was forced.
Bucky Barnes is not a villain. It hurts me when I look into his eyes in this scene, and I couldn’t imagine him being a villain. All he knew was fighting. Whether he was fighting against someone Hydra ordered the Winter Soldier to, or Tony when he was James Buchanan Barnes.
All he knows is fighting. All along, he was fighting against the Winter Soldier, fighting against his mind–doing anything he could to stop the Winter Soldier from taking over.
His eyes are screaming “Help me.”
“I’m sorry I fell off the train protecting you, help me.”
“I’m sorry I took the lives of innocent people, help me.”
“I’m sorry I almost killed my best friend, help me.”
“I’m sorry I’m coming in between you and your other best friend, help me.”
“I’m sorry I can’t understand why you think I’m worth it, help me.”
A blond-haired, blue-eyed actor named Chris is playing an American named Steve, who’s fighting in a world war. Along the way, he meets a scary foreign brunette woman and takes an unlikely band of friends of different nationalities through an event, and goes up against a couple of Germans, one large and deranged, one smaller and a scientist. Steve, at some point, hijacks a plane and destroys it (and a weapon) for the greater good. Someone is looking back at it from the future, and will eventually team up with a millionaire with daddy issues and cool toys. There’s also a shield involved.
Am I talking about Captain America: The First Avenger, or Wonder Woman?
during Bucky’s run this morning, he came across a little animal shelter where he saw a dog who would change his life forever. and Steve totally supported it. Tony, on the other hand, was surprised when he found muddy paw prints on his expensive Italian carpet.
