okay, we’ve all seen this post but i remembered it wrong and was like, “haha, imagine winter soldier about to destroy a hydra facility when he finds a gaggle of steves”
:’) it’s cute crack but the longer you think about it the more unsettling it is. the winter soldier doesn’t know anything about child care.
"You kids look like a guy I know."
"Yeah. I tried to kill him a few times, but he’s a slippery bastard."
"Who are you?" The boy demanded.
He didn’t quite know how to respond — Pierce had said called him hope, the others called him the asset, the man on the helicarrier called him Bucky, the Smithsonian exhibit showed a man called James, and the HYDRA files he’s found called him Winter Soldier. So he said nothing, and just stared at the gaggle of frail blond kids in this room.
The boy decided to take initiative. “I’m S1” he then gestured around the room. “There’s S2 holding S7, S6 and 8 are in the crib, and S3, 4, and 5 are the ones in the library” It was a small corner with a single bookshelf, but S1 looked quite proud. “We’re failed HYDRA experiments.” S1 cocked his head and examined him, then nodded with surprising gravitas for an eight-year-old. “You’re a failed HYDRA experiment, too.”
He considered this, then nodded. “My code name was Winter Soldier.”
"Mr. Winter! Pleased to make your acquaintance!" S1 squared his shoulders and stuck out his hand stiffly. Winter looked at the hand, pretty sure he’s not supposed to break it, but not sure of what else to do with it. "Aw, I did it wrong, didn’t I?" S1 looked sheepish and retracted his hand to run it nervously through his hair. "I read that that’s how you greet new people."
"Hey, Winter!" S2 walked over with S7 still in his arms. He was looking a bit flushed. "If you’re not planning to kill us in the next while, you mind getting some meds down from that tall cupboard for me? They’re in the blue bottles. Usually our handler gets it for us, but you kind of killed him."
As Winter went over to fetch the pills, S1 and S2 started arguing about whether to ration food for dinner. For once, the arguing wasn’t about him, no one was telling him who he should be, and no one said anything about missions or resets. Just handshakes, books, and tall cupboards. For the first time since the Potomac mission, Winter felt unagitated.
lbr the Steves would probably take care of the Winter Soldier. They still have Steve’s tactician brain and sense of justice. And they’d just accept him in a way that maybe real Steve would have difficulty doing. Especially since the older Steves have probably been looking after the whole gaggle for a while now. What’s one more confused ex-assassin?

AND YES I MEAN EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO REBLOGS THIS. UNTIL, SAY, AUGUST 2015. A FULL YEAR. LONG ENOUGH, RIGHT?
LET’S DO THIS THING.
Where are the women? Where are the women who are leading and not just the hot sex symbol in the tight outfits, or the aggressive ones with their sexy action sequences? Where are the ones that are battling with their own identity like Iron Man is? Or trying to make a difference in the forefront? There were a couple of articles that the producer of the Agent Carter one-shot sent me last month about that very question. Journalists were going, ‘Where are these women?’ and, ‘We want them, we actually want them.’ - Hayley Atwell (x)
i actually feed on intelligence
i love it when people know a lot about a lot of things
about music, films, religion, beliefs, history
i love listening to peoples opinions
i love big words
i want to suck in all these smart things like a sponge

You got a problem?
Okay everyone. Do you see this?
Do you see these two words?
They do not mean the same thing.
Can we all decide to stop using “gay” as a synonym for bisexual, since they’re completely different things? Bisexuality is not the same concept as homosexuality, nor is it a subset of it.
