The Wall of Valor: Every S.H.I.E.L.D. facility has a memorial to the agents lost in the line of duty. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s history can be traced on walls like this.
This genuinely makes me upset because S.H.I.E.L.D. didn’t exist at the time that Bucky died?? Like, the organization was created at least a year after his death.
Which means that Peggy Carter posthumously made Bucky a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in order to honour his sacrifice dON’T LOOK AT ME.
Whatever happens tomorrow you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are. Not a perfect soldier, but a good man. [insp x]
You ever wonder how often Bucky told Steve he surrounded them with a team of insane people? Cause I do.
1. Steve Rogers is not just some dumb soldier who follows orders, he thinks outside the box and asks questions and considers consequences.
2. Peggy Carter had plans to eat that boy alive before he became a delicious roast beefcake in Howard Stark’s hottie machine.
3. I don’t understand people who didn’t enjoy this movie.
because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows... compassion.
OH MY GOD I’M FUCKIN SCREAMING
Battle-tested, Captain America and his Howling Commandos quickly earned their stripes. Their mission: taking down HYDRA, a Nazi rogue deep science division. Barnes is the only Howling Commando to give his life in service of his country.
#see this isn’t a thought for bucky #i have always loved the fact that he’s ANGRY when he shouts it in ca1 #he’s legit pissed off at the mere idea of leaving without steve #it’s not like #nah man i bet you can jump it #or #i have an actual reason to believe it would be better if we were still together #or even #i am choosing to prioritize you because i love you #it’s so fundamental to him that it crosses out all the other concerns at the moment #it trumps torture and jealousy and shock and all the other stuff #and comes out furious #which is why it sticks past the amnesia and the programming later #it’s not about thought or choice #it’s something deeper than that #even at his darkest and worst he still feels it (ifeelbetterer)
This scene haunts me.
ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.
There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.
Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?
