I’m a little late with it BUT! here’s one of the pieces I did for @notwithoutyoufanbook! it was an honor to be a part of such a wonderful project! I’m so happy I got the opportunity to work with a team of extremely skilled artists and writers, it was an amazing experience for me
It’s up! It’s up! ＼＼\ ٩(๑❛ワ❛๑)و //／／ My (late) b-day gift to myself, and the rest of the lovely, lovely Stucky fandom. This was super-exciting to work on. Frustrating at times, but also very rewarding. ╭( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑ ˂ᵒ͜͡ᵏᵎ⁾✩
You can find this in my S6 store HERE, on a number of cool gadgets. (｡•ㅅ•｡) ♥
Bucky: A good adjustment .Well,after I remembered what he used to look like. But I prefer a happy healthy Steve to a sick and sad one any day. I just gotta deal with having some troubling putting my arm around his shoulders.
Love your trans peter post! My head cannon is steve being trans. Back in the day, he was short and small like peter. How quick to violence people were with poor 1900's steve. The real reason he couldn't get into the army was because what was on his birth certificate. When Bucky told him to 'sell bonds/manufacture' instead of enlist, those were woman's jobs back then. The doctor hooked him up with the super soldier experiment, adding in extra procedures.
damn u right!! but okay- I’ve actually been meaning to talk about my trans Steve headcanon for quite some time now, so I’m just gonna info-dump a bunch of trans history and MCU interpretations right here. SO:
First of all, the setup of Steve Rogers as a short, scrawny boy who’s bullied and beat up all the time fits easily with how a trans man in the 1940s might have lived. This scene from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) honestly looks like that cliche trans art trope where it’s like: “trans person looks in the mirror and their reflection is the right gender”. you know the one.
Later in that same scene, Bucky outright says that the reason he thinks Steve is joining the war is to “prove himself.” You could totally interpret this as Steve trying to shove himself into the absolute most masculine role in his society in order to reaffirm his own gender identity.
Bucky is also incredibly worried about the consequences Steve will face if he is “discovered falsifying enlistment documents”. If you headcanon Steve as a trans man, this adds new depth to the stakes. Instead of lying about his respiratory issues and hometown, Steve would be lying about his sex assigned at birth. Which, given the state of the US in 1943, would’ve had even harsher punishment.
Steve is recruited by Dr. Abraham Erskine in 1943, which would be congruent with the time the German scientists from the ‘Institute for Sexology’ immigrated to the US. So, to clarify: a German-American doctor spends his life researching and creating a serum that instantly masculinized Steve via intra-muscular injection.I would like to point out that for trans men, testosterone is administered the same way. Also, this timeline just so happens to line up with a key point in the history of transgender medical treatment. Huh. Interesting.
In addition, the following quote by Dr. Abraham Erskine can easily lend itself to a discussion on transmasculinity:
“…the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows… compassion.”
and– hey, I just wanna point out the… interesting parallel… between the flag pole scene in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
…like wow… okay. there’s actually a lot of parallels between these two movies, (except in Mulan the protagonist enters the ‘male’ gender role out of necessity whereas Steve does so by desire, differentiating between a cross-dresser and a trans man) but I won’t go there today. nope.
Then the introduction of Peggy Carter leads Steve to question his existing perceptions of gender roles. He admits that “I guess I just don’t know why you’d join the army if you were… a woman” which, under this trans interpretation, could be Steve projecting his own relationship with gendered aspirations onto Peggy.
And god, that’s not even delving into how easily his ‘transformation sequence’ could fall into a trans narrative.
In the second act of the film when a woman hits on him, Steve responds with visible discomfort. When he first realizes that she’s hitting on him, his immediate reaction is to cover his chest.
The First Avenger mentions Steve’s lack of romantic/sexual experience many times throughout the film. Steve passes it off as ‘not having found the right partner yet’ but hypothetically– if he were a trans man, that could be another reason for his fear of sexual intimacy. If he’s #stealth and passing as male, then any form of sexual intimacy could risk his reputation and his ability to remain in the military.
ﾟ･:，｡★·͙⁺˚*•̩̩͙✩Captain America: The Mock Poster Project✩•̩̩͙*˚⁺‧͙★，｡･:･ﾟ THE WINTER SOLDIER
I don’t think I properly introduced this project, but here’s me, recreating famous (romantic) movie posters with the Captain America characters. The hope is to create one for each movie of the trilogy. as opposed to 6 billions for the Winter Soldier and none for Civil War because SO MANY CHARACTER Each poster is gonna feature the most iconic Stucky line of each movie (”Not Without You”, “I’m With You Till The end of The Line”, and possibly “Your Bucky”), and credits as similar as possible to the *actual* Captain America poster. Today’s choice was Titanic (1997) by James Cameron. It was my first pick, and I never wavered (even if I *might*, if time allows, work on my second and third pick, too). And the more I think about it, the better it fits. The sinking ship. The lovers separated by catastrophe.
You can find the art on my Society6 shop here. I decided to post here a version cropped to look as similar as possible to the Titanic poster I used as base. Buuuuuuuut S6 requires square canvas for several gadgets, so the shop contains both this version and also a second, bigger one showing more of the art (the whole helicarrier, the whole shield and other such details.)

He was six years old the first time he’d heard it.
“Stephen!’ His mother had snapped as soon as she opened the door to her husband’s study. “Stop annoying your father, he’s got important things to do.”
Steve had stopped dead in his tracks, his story about his new friend from school ending abruptly. He’d glanced at his father, hoping to hear some dismissive words along the lines of “it’s not annoying,” but his dad had just glared at him. Steve had quickly left the room, being shooed off to play with the nanny.
Sherlock Hound. When I was a kid watching this series, I didn’t realize I was watching such a master piece. Tomorrow is a birthday of Arthur Conan Doyle. It’s just amazing to know how his works has inspired so many in crime mystery genre.
On his B-Day tomorrow, I will share very first OFFICIAL IMAGE of my animation project to let you know what it’s about.
