things i like about Steve Roger’s character development in the MCU
probably speaks French and German
probably learned how to drive while at war
DEFINITELY spars with Nat because in every movie he picks up new moves she did in the previous movie. Moves that are made for someone with a small body using physics to fight larger bodied people. Moves that he does with his large body anyway.
his hair slowly becomes more modern with every film, so at some point he probably fingered the ends of his hair and thought about letting the past go before heading down to get a new style
he loves Sam so much
he is the only one who pays serious attention to Sam
he is the only one other than clint who can genuinely be described as “Nat’s Friend”
he likes birds
he’s nice, because when buck’s sadness notebook full of pictures of him was out, he could have embarrassed bucky but didnt, and pointedly drew attention away from the object. and that was very nice.
he draws still life’s and portraits and probably would go to art school if he didn’t have to be Cap
he grew up in a poor/predominantly black area of NY and likely lived with predominantly black people during the jazz age, which warms the cockles of mine heart. And is also probably the reason he was like * sees Sam*

Rides a motorcycle in a very dramatic and reckless fashion
Is sad and lonely, but no one seems to notice but Nat and Sam
There is a clear divide between Steve Rogers the man and Captain America and he appropriately treats his body and his power like its on loan from FREEDOM and SWEET LADY LIBERTY. like, if you look close, you can see him shutting off steve to be Cap.
likes grandpa music
makes dad jokes
runs away from being set up with people, and I identify with that heavily
Likes strong/smart/powerful women. would probably get jelly knees if he met Wonder Woman.
Likely a virgin. Very Likely.
Doesnt care about the America of now, with its corruption and horribleness, instead, loves and fights for the America that Could Be, because he sees that America has all the ingredients for Glory and he just hopes that one day we can put them together in the right order and fairness so we can make a pretty good apple pie of freedom and justice.
fights people constantly and has no chill at all
Punches like a Heavy, but is almost as graceful as Natasha
dare him to do something and he’ll probably do it. A v Reckless Man.
he likes to wear khakis and plaid.
But balances that out by lowkey being a leather daddy
he wears so much leather oh my god
Blushes when he gets embarassed
all steve/bucky bed sharing AUs are pretty much canon because that was A Thing Men Did back in the 1930s when poor
“ALT-RIGHT” was a video game published in 1988 for Windows 2.0 and Atari TOS.
Depicting a dystopian society in America, 30 years in the distant future of 2018, the game’s plot centered on a rebellion against a fascist dictator known only as “The Leader.” The player fights the Leader’s armies of skinheads, neo-Nazis and KKK goons, most of which are mutated or dripping with corrosive fungus.
The game’s designer, Buck K. Cohen, stated that the game was intended to teach children to be wary of bigotry and fascist tendencies in politics. The game was pulled from shelves only a few days into its release owing to the perception that it would inspire violence in players. No copies of the game program or original packaging are known to exist. This players guide is an extreme rarity and only shows the first stage of the game, which takes place on a DC street during a Leader rally. Making their way through crowds of patriots waving American flags and facing mostly neo-Nazi thugs (and oddly, several green blobs that shoot acid), the player faces off against a final boss named “Richard Speer” who as the game’s first and weakest boss, goes down with a single punch and then whines about his persecution in a cutscene. The game guide implies he will return in a later stage as a robot.
it scares me what i would do for money. there’s this game i play with him: what’s the lowest? and it’s like this: what’s the absolute least amount of money it would take you to do this. and the game is fun because you say, how much to do my homework. how much to run naked outside in the snow. how much to lie overnight in a couch-sized hell coffin of hungry mosquitoes.
the opposite every morning: how much will you pay to eat? to see a movie? the doctor for your mind is seventy-five a visit. how much to be happy? school is in the fifties. how much for your future and your learning? your cousin’s chemotherapy has so many zeroes you feel hypnotized by them. how much to be living?
a poor person’s quick calculation: if i do his homework that’s twenty bucks. that’s a week of groceries or two if i eat lean. an hour of a struggle means a week of food. i’d run in the snow for fifty. that’s a month of food if i’m thrifty.
there’s always a price. i want to believe i’m above it but even two thousand dollars would change my life. if i had ten just imagine. i’d lie in that hell coffin for fifty-six thousand. best eight hours of my life. i’d kiss each mosquito as it flew by.
..they brought up irene to shut. it. down. to dash any thoughts ppl may have about her coming back. john cried, not grieving mary, but because he was holding himself to such a high standard and letting himself down, because he wasn’t the man he wanted to be and it was breaking him and he finally decided to, in mrs hudson’s words, “buck up” and get the hell on with it. in this scene we saw sherlock use this chance john was telling him to use before it was too late to get up and hold john, and in that moment, mary disappeared. sherlock was there for him, and mary disappeared, and sherlock didn’t text irene back. he told john later that he sometimes did to make john feel better about himself–it was just texting. that’s all. we also know that they both need romantic entanglement to be fulfilled. all this scene told me was that they can only do that for each other.
You know what else I love about The OA? That Buck vu is trans but it’s literally just casually mentioned a couple times. It’s not made a big deal of and no one (expect his dad) misgender him and he’s not bullied at school.
Just a pre-t high schooler, where everyone, including his mother, respect him, his name and his pronouns and don’t blink twice about it.
I love the chill representation of the transgender community.
It’s not some devastatingly tragic story for his character, it’s just.. normal.
and another beautiful thing done by the amazing casting directors is that Ian Alexander (Buck vu’s actor) himself, is transgender.
2017 is looking good af
okay so u know when buck tweeted alfonso the video of oa in episode one?? his twitter is real and it’s active and there’s so much cool stuff on it that gives a more insight to buck’s personality/interests and it’s SO COOL, there’s also posts about angels and stuff and a lot of comic book stuff & studio ghibli so buck is basically a huge nerd. idk if the actor actually runs the account or what but anyways i thought ppl would find this interesting
Clint: bullshit! *opens closet* you have shirts… pants… jackets… hey Steve, sup?… some socks… too many damn shoes… yo Buck, how’s it hanging?… ties… stockings… gags… shit! T’Challa? how the fuck are you up there?… oh look, some jeans…
