in my monolouge

my friend is a psychology major and i was talking with her about the ideas of identity and the self. She mentioned to me that babies typically begin to recognize themselves in a mirror and talk at around the same time, leading psychologists to generally believe that identity is closely tied to language in the brain. AND OK SO IN THE WINTER SOLDIER BUCKY EITHER DOES NOT SPEAK OR SPEAKS IN A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN HIS NATIVE TOUNGE UNTIL STEVE RECOGNIZES HIM AND CALLS HIM BY HIS NAME AND BUCKY RESPONDS IN ENGLISH, HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE TO STEVE AND HE STARTS TO REMEMBER! AND THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE MOVIE WHENEVER BUCKY STARTS TO REMEMBER WHO HE IS, HE SPEAKS, AND HE SPEAKS IN THE SAME LANGUAGE HE GREW UP TALKING TO STEVE IN. IM REALLY EMOTIONAL ABOUT THAT BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT HIS IDENTITY IS AS STRONGLY TIED TO STEVE AS IT IS TO LANGUAGE AND IM NOT OK.

Things I learned at Hayley Atwell’s panel at Calgary Expo
  • She believes that Agent Carter can and should explore other social issues the way it has with sexism.
  • She is super feminist and its rad as hell
  • The help im stuck and i can’t get out ventriloquism bit is really funny irl
  • (on Chris Evans shirtless scene in cafta) “ I did what any honest woman or man would do and I grabbed his chest.”
  • During filming of catfa, there were latex fake leg sort of knee length stocking things that Chris Evans wore while doing the barefoot chasing after heinz kruger scene. Hayley got bored one afternoon and put on a pair of these giant fake leg things and walked around set with them for several hours with no comment.
  • She got Joss Whedon really drunk before aou started filming
  • “Peggy is everyones role model, including mine.”
  • Chris Evans has hardwood floors in his house. These floors are used for skating around on in socks during intense games of charades where “we are both children”
  • She and James D’Arcy had two games they would play on set to stay awake. One of these was a game of chicken involving a empty lot, two office chairs, attempting to crash into each other and high speeds. The other is the two of them standing twentyish meters apart and attempting to throw huge grapes into the others mouth. Once the grape is in your mouth you cannot chew or swallow it. The winner is whoever has the most grapes in their mouth.
  • She would love to develop the relationship between the Howling Commandos and Peggy if there is a season 2
  • If there is a season 2 ANGIE IS FOR SURE IN IT
  • she would love for Peggy to have a romantic relationship in season 2
  • my shipper heart was basically screaming cartinelli off of mountaintops at that point

Conclusion: Hayley is a precious dorky sunflower who must be cherished.
