Era tan hermoso y escalofriante, que me pregunté sobre la ciencia de las tormentas y cómo a veces parecía que una tormenta quería romper el mundo y cómo el mundo se rehusaba a romperse.

Also, for those who are saying that to give Captain America a boyfriend would be “erasing male friendship”, here’s a thought experiment for you. Imagine for a moment that everything you fear has come to pass and Steve and Bucky are in a romantic relationship. Now count how many examples of male friendship remain in the MCU. I can think of at least 3 well-drawn, nuanced examples in Civil War alone, let alone the dozens more across the rest of the canon. Now count, in this hypothetical end-of-days scenario, how many queer relationships there would be in the MCU. That’s right. One.

Queer people don’t want to take anything from anyone. We just want to make sure we’re represented in what’s already there.
