ok so as i said regarding this excerpt from the winter soldier novel, i have realized that Official Movie Novelizer is my true calling and would like to apply for that position immediately. to prove i am prepared for this responsibility, i have used the passage in question as a jumping off point and written the rest of the scene. as u know, the official novelization goes like this:
Then Steve decided to open up as
well. “I grew up with a guy. We grew up together.”
Sam knew by the tone in Steve’s voice it was someone who had served with him.
“He make it back?” Sam asked.
Steve sighed and looked to the floor, pain in his eyes. “Killed in action.”
There was a silence between them for a few seconds before Steve continued,
“I’ve been through a lot of changes. I don’t know if anything hit me as hard as
“We fight for our guys, ya know?” Sam said.
now i have not actually read this book but i am reasonably sure that the next few paragraphs should go like this:
“I do know,” said Steve, looking deep
into Sam’s eyes. “Nothing’s ever been more important to me than my
Sam was getting a certain vibe from Steve but he didn’t want to jump to
any conclusions. Maybe this was just the way guys acted back in 1943. Still,
nothing ventured, nothing gained. “Like if I had a guy right now, I would definitely treat him right.”
Steve looked in
both directions like he was making sure they were alone and stepped closer to
Sam. “This is amazing. No one I’ve met since I woke up understands me the
way you do.”
Sam was sad to think of Steve alienated and suffering. “Oh, hey man…I’m here
Steve’s face lit
up. “Really? Do you wanna leave your fulfilling and socially useful job to
risk your life defying the American government at my side?”
Sam wanted to
explain to this hot sweet hunk of dumbass that you can’t be so open and
trusting with someone you basically met five minutes ago. On the other hand, Steve had
assessed him correctly. Sam knew himself to be intrepid and loyal, a brilliant
fighter with a built-in skepticism about the American government’s commitment

what if your guy turns up alive with a bunch of assault rifles and starts shooting

lip, clearly giving the matter some thought. Then he put his hand on Sam’s arm.
“That wouldn’t be a problem for us, Sam. Of course I’d still love him…but I
have so much love to give.”
Sam felt ambivalent
about the possibility of having to share Steve with a brainwashed cyborg
assassin, but after all it was only a hypothetical. “Okay,” he said
do it?” Steve dropped to one knee, overcome with joy. “Really, Sam?”
Steve,” Sam said, taking Steve’s hand. “I’ll marry you.”
