I love the tags you put in the last post you reblogged and I totally agree with you ;_;

oh my god listen to me LISTEN the whole avengers thing only WORKS because the avengers are the epitome of the ‘ lost & found family ’ trope. there’s a reason why they chose, not had to, not forced to, but chose, to live together at avengers mansion (WHICH HELLO giant flashing metaphor of the original owner’s childhood family mansion – a home that was never actually a home to him but a carefully cultivated environment of fear and disappointment – becoming the symbol of the avengers and the actual physical space where this group of people came to be each other’s family).

and oh my god steve rogers. spends pretty much every single universe he’s in drowning after the ice. he’s alive, but he’s drowning in so much grief and pain and loss. and you know what, the avengers notice. they all do. they all, in their own way, make an effort, to reach out to him. and the important thing in these universes is that he always reaches back. and despite being so out of time and out of place steve always tries. i mean, it’s even out of reflex, because it’s impossible to be that alone and not wANT to make friends out of the people he’s already trusting with his life out on the battlefield. it’s so human of him to want that connection.

because that’s who steve is. his loyalty and faith is sO absolute and lifelong, why wouldn’t he seek out people to surround himself with and to love. he’s a soldier, he absolutely understands the value of treating the people you fight beside like friends, like family. and in those moments of life and death, that’s what they become. the kind of devotion he has for people who’ve earned his trust is endless, you just have to look at how tightly he holds onto the people from his old life. give him 2 or 10 years as an avenger and the very idea of the avengers is the thing steve clings to throughout all the disasters, all of the tragedies. 

he has so much enormous pride in the avengers, as a symbol, and as a collective of the best, bravest people he’s ever met. of course they’re his family, of course he loves all of these misfits and crazy people as family. how could he not? he’s their leader and their general and their inspiration when they need it but then who inspires captain america? his team, his family.

and i mean. honestly have you seen steve when the team is about to be disbanded or broken up or ended or someone has to leave the team hAVE YOU SEEN the level of soap operatic drama

[insert the entire nomad period here bc apparently getting a new identity and a deep v neck latex suit is steve’s version of a superhero midlife crisis]

and then look at him ligHT UP LIKE SUNSHINE whenever the idea of assembling the team / building a new team comes up 

then there’s tony in his corner, so eager to get to know him and become his friend, both as tony stark and as iron man. like oh my god the examples alone i could list of tony doing endearing selfless things just because he wants steve to feel like he has a place in this new era. who so obviously cares so much about steve and not just cap, who above all, just wants to be his friend.

i’m not saying this just because i’m a shipper blog but steve’s conception of the avengers and what he sees as his ‘home’ is so inextricably linked to tony. 

I’LL SAVE THE WORD COUNT AND JUST FACETIOUSLY END THIS WITH a ‘HM I WONDER WHY’

(steve’s first day at avengers mansion after the ice)

(STEVE LOOKING INTO THE REFLECTION OF HIS ‘TRUE SELF’ WHEN HE’S NOT EVEN CAP ANYMORE AND SEEING HIMSELF AS CAP RIGHT BESIDE TONY)

Princess Lady Serenity, I've always dreamed of being a princess but a requirement of being one is to be pure and innocent. I'm not pure and innocent at all - I've had a past of bullying and abuse. I feel that "princess" is only afforded to girls who were sheltered. I know you've been through bullying too, so I wonder, can a girl who has a sordid past be a princess?

Pureness and innocence are requirements of Princesses in fairy tales, but rarely are required of real-life Princesses. To be a Princess is part identity and part career - what is really required of a Princess is to have courage and dignity when we face our hardest trials. I don’t agree that your past of bullying and abuse robbed you of purity and innocence. The cruelties of other people are no reflection on who you are as a person.

While it seems like Princesses are idealized paragons of perfection, it is absolutely possible for someone with a sordid past (as you put it) to be a Princess, even if things don’t turn out well. To use a real-life example from history, look at the daughters of King Henry VIII of England.

Princess Mary was his eldest living child, who was forced to watch her father abandon her mother, Katherine of Aragon, for a younger woman (Anne Boleyn) because none of their male children survived past infancy. Princess Mary and her mother were publicly humiliated, and Mary was repeatedly reminded that her father did not value her because she was a daughter instead of a son. When her mother was dying, Mary wasn’t even allowed to visit her or to attend her funeral. She survived, however, and did eventually become Queen, but the humiliation and abuse she suffered at the hands of her father did have long-reaching effects for the rest of her life. None of the cruelties she suffered when she was young were her fault.

Princess Elizabeth, Mary’s half-sister and sole living child of Anne Boleyn, had an even more sordid life. When she was still a baby, her mother was accused of multiple heinous crimes she was almost certainly not guilty of, and Anne Boleyn was executed just so Henry VIII could move on to yet another wife who might give him a son. Elizabeth was so young when her mother died, she couldn’t even remember her. On top of that, despite her strong resemblance to her father, she was branded a bastard and denied the title of Princess (for her early life she was referred to as ‘Lady Elizabeth’). She was abused by her stepmother’s husband, and faced multiple assassination attempts because she was a Protestant and her enemies were Catholic. But in the end, she became one of the greatest monarchs England has ever had. She suffered, but became wiser and stronger as a result.

I know it’s hard to move on from a past of bullying and abuse. But you have survived. And as far as I’m concerned, you are definitely a Princess.
