Since Vern Fiddler’s definitely tonight’s Player of the Game, let’s revisit: Alain Vigneault Cracks Up at Vernon Fiddlers “Angry Bieksa” Impression
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
At ease, soldier.

#christ this is the most devastating#origin stories are the worst best#steve rogers#bucky barnes#forged through every kind of pain there is; weaponised humanity unleashed for such diametrically#different purposes#(and yet the same. soldiers. weapons. the strong hands to turn the tides of wars so much bigger than they know)#these films are so bloody smart about the visuals; all these scenes for these two that go hand-in-bloodied-hand#that bucky has to be reborn again and again and yet it’s really a kind of dying; until he’s little more than ghost#in the most brutal of ways. man. fuck this. goodbye.#captain america#the winter soldier#but also just weeping about the lines of their bodies and the painfully echo-y but distinct#forms of submission in the way they let themselves fall back.#there’s something so feral and tormented and non-human about sebastian stan’s face and that lank hair cutting into his eyes#but he still submits.#and there’s steve who is visually every frailty humanity could possess but so brave and hungry to do this#because he believes in it even if he’s scared as shit.#i’m having a moment (via magalimoons)
#GOODBYE EVERYONE WE HAD OUR TIMES TOGETHER#bucky was drafted into a war he NEVER WANTED TO FIGHT then was hollowed into a vessel for war and nothing but.#his heart and mind were an impediment so hydra scraped him clean.#left nothing but the mechanics and the instinct and skill.#steve’s body was unfit for the war he BELIEVED he should fight so he was given a body that could—#bigger and more efficient but never a weapon for anyone’s using because his will was too strong and too present and too noble.

@marvel Flattery will get you nowhere! Probably. Maybe. *looks the other way*
