I am so here for CA:TWS stories that examine the fact that Sam is at a different point in his life than Steve is, that even though we get to see Sam as a goofy, exuberant flyboy, he’s also someone who has crossed a river that Steve has only come to the bank of: stepping outside of his soldierness and confronting how to live in the world with what he’s lost and what he’s done. The scene at the VA suggests that Steve comes to him in search of a guide as well as a friend. Sure, Steve’s seen and done things that Sam can’t imagine, but Sam has also done one important thing that Steve is only starting to imagine, which is making peace with himself as a soldier and a human being. 

It’s pretty interesting that Sam is essentially a happy character, generous and trusting, and that he has no problems going back into battle, bringing the battle to his home. We know that he’s suffered a lot, enough to make him lose all sense of purpose. But when we see him, he’s not suffering. Unlike most of the MCU heroes at this point, he’s not in the thick of warring with his trauma. And while there are a lot of pointed questions you can ask about the politics of his character, I think it’s important that he’s there in the film to show that there is a peace to make with trauma. That it’s possible to suffer, and not suffer for the rest of your life; that it is actually possible to come out the other side of grief.

But also: that it’s not some magical transformation, that it doesn’t happen through love or by chance. I feel like we get a really clear sense of a Sam who has worked incredibly hard to be the person he is. We see him leading a recovery group! It’s like: Yeah. He’s been through this. And it’s like the opposite of grimdarkness, because what it’s putting up there on the screen is the idea that trauma is real, and major, and crippling, and it’s not going to just go away— but you can live through it, live with it, and learn to be a happy human being.

And that’s one of the reasons Sam is awesome. And there should be more stories about that.

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.

Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.

You know when you read a fanfic so good, but so good, that it makes you ship the ship even more, that changes your perspective of your ship and makes you stop to think about things while you cry

An interview with the creator of ‘American Captain,’ the Steve Rogers diary comic.

Q: The most obvious ongoing theme in American Captain is the fact that Steve is constantly kind of confused and miserable about his life, which was a pretty smart prediction considering the events of the new Captain America movie, in which Steve is a very messed up guy.  How much do you plan on having American Captain fit in with the new canon from Winter Soldier?

A: “Damn, is he messed up. Wow. Damn. I think Chris Evans probably looked at a lot of photos of returning servicemen, because he Thousand-Yard Stares his way through that film like a champion.

And he was messed up in The Avengers, too. The Avengers is a weird movie that seems to try very hard to produce some kind of psychological resolution for its characters, but also, Steve is introduced by literally trying to punch away visual flashbacks to the war in which his best friend died and then he did. I’m sure he felt pretty cool after beating up some aliens in New York, but he’s introduced with an explicit visual depiction of his having PTSD, and that unfortunately doesn’t go away just because you had a victory, or because the world really is as dangerous as your instincts are constantly telling you sometimes. In fact, it’s the “sometimes” that’ll really get you.”

"Steve has always been kind of a dark character. AmCap is really not at a massive disjunct with a lot of the earlier comics. It has less super villains, sure, but probably equal amounts of Steve wandering around internalizing angst. (A good Cap, I think, is about 50% punching, 50% angst).

The other thing about Steve is that he looks like a walking Tom of Finland drawing (IRL, I mean. He doesn’t draw himself like that, and that’s deliberate on my part) but inside, he is, and will probably always be, an awkward, bullied geek. I think, personally, that that has always been a part of his character, too. Specifically the part that explains his dorky dad jokes.”

behold, an excellent interview with the creator of the captain america comic you are going to be weeping into your pillow about in three hours after you’ve read all of it in one achingly painful beautifully crafted sitting, I’M SORRY/YOU’RE WELCOME

    “Okay, man,” Sam said, the day the new wings arrived. “Let’s go.”

    “Go where?” Steve said. He was reading the scrawled note that had come in the box: Rogers, you don’t call, you don’t write, I’m starting to think you only love me for my tech. Dinner, Stark Tower, next Saturday. Bring the new playmate. He can fly you in now.

    “Whiteoak Canyon,” Sam said. “Next time you throw your ass off a plane into my arms, I want more than a fifty percent chance of catching you.”

    Steve folded up the note and tucked it away half-smiling, wry. “I never doubted you for a second, Sam.”

    “That’s only cause they don’t teach you Army boys enough math,” Sam said.

    Sam’s insurance was giving him a hard time about his car — they wanted to call the Winter Soldier an act of God, which sounded about as far from the truth as you could get to Steve, and SHIELD wasn’t around to pick up the tab anymore. So they took the bike up to Shenandoah Park. The drive wasn’t a lot more than an hour in nice weather, and as the highway stretched out Steve felt all his muscles starting to loosen up, little by little. It was a funny thing. He’d always been a city kid through and through; a bush had been cover that a Nazi was probably about to jump out from behind to shoot him. But now, the further they got from the city, the easier it got to forget everything behind him. Everything except Sam, a solid bulwark at his back, hands resting easy on his waist.

    They hiked up to the top of a tall ridge with a good grassy hill and lots of shrub vegetation at the bottom. Sam did half a dozen trial runs on his own, then sketched him a series of jumps. They started with the easy ones where Steve climbed onto Sam’s back and Sam got them to the ground, and worked up to the deadweight ones: Steve just closing his eyes and letting himself fall right off the edge, limp and tumbling free, trusting Sam to catch him.

    Air whistling by his ears, feeling the world turning over and over around him, and then the shock of impact: Sam’s arms coming around him, locking them chest to chest, and the acceleration pressing them together. Steve’s eyes started to sting, the third or fourth time, helplessly. After the fifth time Sam put him down on the ground, on his feet, Sam said, gently, “Hey, you all right?” Steve had to turn away and sit down and wipe tears from his face.

    He heard Sam ease off the wings and put them down. Sam sat down next to him on the grass, shoulder to shoulder. Steve took a deep breath, and another.

    “Trust falls can get pretty intense,” Sam said.

    “Yeah.” Steve swallowed. “It’s been a while.”

    Sam’s hand came up and settled on the back of his neck, fingers cradling the base of his skull, and Steve closed his eyes and let his head tip back into Sam’s grip. For a moment he was still hanging there, mid-air, and then Sam was kissing him, sweet and slow and careful, easing him down into the grass.

    Get this! A show about two “awkward” cis white heterosexual girls pretending to be freaky lesbians so they can be popular! Because being out in high school makes you SO cool ! The get invited to all the parties now that they are lesbians! The show is a comedy too, you can laugh at many of the jokes ranging from “Does that mean I’m the butch ?” ー because you know you need one girl and one boy in ever lesbian relationship, to “I’ve need some lesbian energy in my life” ー because lesbians are fun objects, like scented candles ! The show is very quirky and I bet EVERY ally in town will be tuning to see it ! Who do you ship?
