okay so I saw a post recently about how even tho we don’t see Steve and Peggy do much in Cap 1, literally EVERYONE knows they were a thing, so they were most likely a big huge thing.
which makes me wonder why the fuck Steve’s picture of Peggy is clearly cut from a newspaper. Like wtf.
Originally I thought he was being a creeper and just tore it out of the newspaper to pine at every time he opens his compass
but lets say they, Steve and Peggy, were totally together and Peggy just straight up refused to give him a picture of her that he could take into the field. And Steve is like why and she’s like Because I’m A Goddamn Agent, I can’t have my face in your belongings, if you lose that shit, it could blow my cover! Not to mention YOU WILL HAVE A CAMERA CREW WITH YOU FOR SOME OF YOUR SHIT, I do not want to be in an newsreel, Captain, I wanna keep my fucking job.
and Steve is like Fffffff and he’s a stubborn shitlord so he goes to the archives and is like hey person who works here, can you find me a photo of Agent Carter on any of these newspapers. And they totally do and Steve is like “thanks” and just rips that shit out and puts it in his compass.
And Peggy doesn’t find out until she’s watching the newsreel. With Colonel Phillips literally RIGHT BESIDE HER.
And Steve gets back and she slaps him and he’s like hey it was public record AND you didn’t give it to me, so its not on you its all on me. And Peggy’s like that’s not good enough, I’m gonna have Barnes tan your hide tonight you sneaky trash basket.
