I really want more fics of people comforting Sam post CACW… like yes the rest of the crew went through some shit but like most fics seem to forget Sam?? i mean he feels responsible for Rhodey’s near death (not helped at all by t.s. blaming him for dodging a blast) that likely reminded him of Riley’s death. Then he trusts tony with Steve’s location, which ends very poorly for Steve and Bucky (both of whom Sam cares about, even if he chirps them sometimes). Sam logically knows none of this is his fault, but he can’t help the irrational and overwhelming guilt of it all. He’s probably having nightmares more frequently than he’s had since he first got back stateside. Like give me Steve rubbing his back and wiping the tears away when he wakes up screaming out for Riley in the middle of the night. Give me Wanda sitting and listening to him talk about the guilt and regret he feels over everything. Give me Bucky silently coming over to sad Sam on the couch, putting his arm around him and holding him for a bit (Sam glares at him a bit at first, and says, “I still don’t like you”, before cuddling into him). Let Sam be angry, and sad, and frustrated at all of what’s happened, and let him have support along the way.
may you please draw more lams or mullette?
