UR NOT MILKING THE TITS OF LIFE
"The thing is, Steve and Bucky’s friendship wasn’t just a "they grew up so they’re as close as brothers," thing, it’s way more dynamic than that. Their relationship may be symbiotic, but it was never particularly balanced. Growing up, Steve was sickly and physically weak but had precisely the same personality as he does now: unendingly hopeful and moral, with no conception of backing down from a fight. Hence why he’s constantly getting beaten up, with Bucky having to wade in and finish those fights for him. Bucky is incredibly protective of him, which must have caused a fair amount of confusion when Steve turned into a near-indestructable supersoldier.
It’s a classic partnership between idealism (Steve) and pragmatic cynicism (Bucky), with Bucky playing the role of Steve’s protector and #1 fan. It takes the supersoldier serum for everyone else to realise what Bucky knew all along: that Steve is an inspirational figure, destined for great things. There’s this beautiful transitional moment in the first Cap movie when Steve has just rescued Bucky and the other soldiers from the Red Skull’s lab, and Bucky calls out for everyone to cheer for Captain America. This is basically the first time Steve has ever received outside recognition for being the person he is, and you can tell that while Bucky’s happy for him, he’s also a tiny bit resentful because he knows that Steve is no longer “his”. The tables have turned, and now Bucky is walking in Steve’s shadow, rather than the other way round.”
it turns out that bucky is a mean pitcher. they know who he is - everyone does, these days - so he tells them about all the games he went to with steve, how they’d save up most of their spending money to buy those tickets, and how offended he’d been to find out the dodgers had moved. those are some of his best memories
*bastille voice* how am i gonna be an optimist about this
well if you close your eyes
Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker
Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.
(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)
It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve
when she’s boredsometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.
But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.
STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT

Sammy isn’t the only one
the fact that sebastian stan understands bucky barnes’ character so completely is everything to me
