So read ‘Old Married Couple' by NewWonder last night, and cackled my head off. Was talking to Tazzy and East about how it reminded me of a Star Trek fic, where Kirk muses about how he’s been married to each of his Senior Staff at least once.
-Half of this was typed out on my phone after I’d gone to bed, the rest this morning. Thanks to Melissae-Astron and East for grammar checks. 640 words, xenophilia references due to a mostly alien cast.
“-So we need someone to distract the minister.” Peter looked around the room. “Who wants to get hitched?”
“Me and Groot ain’t doin’ it again.” Rocket bristled at them. “There can’t be too many of what I am gettin’ hitched to walkin’ trees. And if there are others, I sure as heck ain’t heard of them, so I’m thinkin’ that someone, somewhere is bound to start gettin’ suspicious, at some point.”
"Certain personalities are attracted to certain professions."
#these sad fucking nerds all memorized the same inane fucking list#which in all likelihood has little to no value to their professions or personal edification#why?#because you all have guilt complexes and deep self-loathing coming out the wazoo#and i love you all for it#i’m fairly certain the only person on this show who is not convinced that they are the worst sort of monster is hannibal lecter

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT STEVE TRIED TO TRIGGER BUCKY’S MEMORIES BY WEARING HIS LESS DURABLE RETRO!UNIFORM (aka the not-so-bulletproof outfit he wore the last time Bucky saw him) AND BY QUOTING SOMETHING BUCKY SAID TO HIM 70-SOMETHING YEARS AGO
Okay okay but can we just talk about this? The entire movie Steve’s worth is defined by what Captain America has become. He goes to the Smithsonian to see Captain America’s life projected back at him — the boy he was before a footnote, the sickly waif who wasn’t good enough until the army (literally) made him A Man — while he’s there he walks around unrecognized; the entire gag at the mall is based on the idea that this is a 6’2” hulking muscled mass of a guy who absolutely no one recognizes unless he has that star on his chest, because it’s the suit, not the person, who’s been given worth. And when Steve thinks about the most memorable thing about himself — when he thinks about how to get Bucky back — he goes for that. He goes for Captain America. And it doesn’t work; Bucky doesn’t react at all. Because Bucky always saw through that. He didn’t give a shit about Captain America. That “little guy from Brooklyn,” that’s the kid he loved, that’s the one he was following when he died, the one who’s scared voice knocked the memories out of him earlier in the movie. And it’s only when Steve drops the shield, and the helmet — all of the things that make him Captain America, that make him immediately recognizable to the rest of the country, to the world — when he calls on this one, rogue memory from when they were just kids, from before he was the national ideal of manhood he’s been made out to be since his death… That’s when Bucky sees him. Because Bucky doesn’t remember, or care about Captain America: Captain America is just a target. But Steve Rogers, that little kid from Brooklyn? Is under him, and dying, and scared…and the impulse to protect is so much stronger than anything else that’s been done to Bucky since then.
