Your answer to that last anon was 100% spot on, can you please explain why I love shrinkyclinks so much??
hahhahaaha it’s now officially ‘ask Viper’ night.
Okay, umm….. I’m not sure about other people, but for me it’s the size difference. I just fucking love size differences so damn much, and while we already sort of had that with pre-war Stucky, having someone who looks as menacing and deadly as Winter Soldier!Bucky does paired with cute, smol, breakable Stevie is just *squeals* <333333333
Except that’s just how it looks on the outside but in reality it’s completely the opposite, it’s a total role-reversal, because Bucky’s this big fucking softie and just basically and oversized teddy bear, and Steve…… Steve’s the farthest thing from breakable you could ever imagine.
You know how dog trainers always say that Chihuahuas are always barking at other dogs because they mistakenly think they’re a lot bigger than they actually are? And they’re sort of constantly angry because they actually can’t do a lot of things that the bigger version of themselves that’s in their heads can?
And when big!Steve shows vulnerability, that’s okay, because he gets to be strong most of the time. It’s a relief, even. But skinny!Steve can’t allow himself to show vulnerability, because he already hates being too weak all the time enough as it is (and he’s not, he’s not, but we’re always our worse judges). Only with Bucky he does allow himself to be vulnerable, and that makes it even more special.
And when Bucky’s not just Bucky, but even bigger and stronger and just *more* than he already was…
that Steve can still let himself be vulnerable around him…
that makes it so much more meaningful. Especially when, at the same time, he can still be the bossy one, be the one comforting Bucky sometimes, be the protector and not just the protected, or just be what Bucky needs, too.
can i ask some more abt ur missing keith au? i would love to write some hcs but i want to know more about it so i dont end up making it completely different from what you've imagined (ur new art is gorgeous btw!!)
tbh i dont have much planned out for this au yet so everything’s still a bit sketchy but so far, here’s what i have:
i finally had to break down and just.. delete like 85% of them. either they were too old or didn’t have specific questions in them so the memes they were for were lost, and the staggering number of them overwhelemed me a little bit. I’ve queued most of the others I had from the other day, save 2 and the moodboard memes i received. those will be finished at some point, but they do take a while for me to do.
i also want to let it be known that if you dont get a timely response from me when you send in an ask, please, please do not take it personally. i have to be in the mood to answer asks / have the energy and desire to answer asks / like to put some degree of thought into them before i publish them. i also work a lot and am most times just too heckin tired to answer right away. so im sorry if you’ve stopped sending asks bc its been too long – i dont blame you one bit, but i just hope you understand that it isn’t a you thing at all; it’s very much an all me thing and im trying to be better about it but.
Theres a new tumblr update that shows people that you message if you’ve been active in the last hour or so and if thats something that stresses you out if you go in General settings > Privacy you can turn it off
Being nonbinary is nothing to be ashamed of. You don’t have to be bursting with pride, ready to shout it from the rooftops if that’s just not who you are, but nor should you have to hide it, keep it tucked away. It’s a part of you, big or small, and you shouldn’t have to worry about life being complicated because of it, or what other people may think.
You do you. Be nonbinary. Pin the flag to your wall, or just whisper it to yourself in the middle of the night. Lead rallying cries for nonbinary support groups, or just reblog nb posts on tumblr. Be nonbinary, whatever and however that means for you.
I never told you but over countless years you have m e a n t s o m u c h to me. You have been a r e d e e m e r, a c o n f i d a n t, a m e n t o r, a r i v a l and a f r i e n d. And at times, yes, you’ve been a royal pain in the ass […] I’m so sorry, m y b r o t h e r.
everything about this scene is super extra and very sunny, frank declaring his son as a prostitute, mac’s reaction as “GOOD”, That Iconic Dennis Delivery, the gang’s general self-deception & yelling over each other and mac’s unforgettable line at the end
