The thing I really hope people understand about comics characters specifically is that there is no singular interpretation of that character.
Dozens of writers probably had their hands on that character before you were even born, and each of those writers’ written dialogue and plot choices are just as canon as the others. I’m not even talking about different comic ‘lines’. Within the same line you get different writers with different notions about exactly who each character is.
It’s often the same with television. The bigger the writers room and the longer the show goes on, the more variation you’ll see. Sometimes the fandom collectively groups together to say something unanimously like “the Doctor Who movie in the 90’s was a trainwreck and we will never speak of it again”, but it’s usually not a standalone piece of media so easily ignored, nor something so unanimously agreed upon by fans.
So if you notice that ‘your’ Natasha is really different from someone else’s, consider the fact that the character’s been around since 1964, some people pull more from comicsverse than others, comicsverse is fucking huge, and even if you stick with MCU there are different ways to interpret her screen time in the films she’s appeared in so far. There’s no need to feel threatened or insulted when someone’s interpretation is different than yours. It’s not a direct argument over your interpretation.
god a friend of mine has offered me a free embroidery on a shirt and I’ve been trying to come up with a “sam wilson defense squad” logo and now I’m thinking what if I did “bird’s rights activists for sam wilson” instead
can it please have the birds rights activist twitter picture at the top
I asked my huz if he’d seen “the bird’s rights activist” thing and as he responded and asked questions I realized he genuinely thought that it was a real thing that real people in the real world identified as
Hi! I love Catenary Chain... and I would like to know if we are gonna know when they started feeling like that (steve and bucky)? lke in love and everything... idk i just love that thing in stories x3 sorryyyyyy~
The flashbacks in Circling Back cover a lot of that - Bucky started getting feels before Steve did, back when they were pretty young, and didn’t really know what to do with them. Steve’s ‘aha’ moment isn’t really revealed, but it’s made clear that he’s “used to wanting things he can never have” and has felt that way for a long time.
I feel like writing several paragraphs of fic hinging on the fact that the Gros Michel banana went extinct, only to discover that they are *still around* but no longer *commercially available*, and having to rewrite all those paragraphs, is a distinctly Avengers fandom problem
IDK WHO FOUND IT BUT ALL I CAN IMAGINE IS RDJ PROMISING ON THE RIDE OVER THAT HE DEFINITELY WOULDN’T CALL CHRIS A DORITO AND CHRIS SAYING ‘GOOD BECAUSE IF YOU SAY IT IN FRONT OF THE CAMERAS THAT WILL ONLY ENCOURAGE THEM’ AND RDJ BEING LIKE ‘RIGHT RIGHT I AGREE YES’
Steve/Sam/Natasha "I think you missed your calling."
Steve makes a sound so orgasmic-sounding that even he blushes in surprise when it leaves his mouth. “Sam,” he says, sounding like he’s going to weep. “These omelets are amazing.”
Natasha, meanwhile, has already hoovered what’s on her plate and is stealthily reaching her fork towards what’s on Steve’s. He intercepts her with his butter knife and a glare.
"Thanks," Sam says, "It’s my mom’s recip-" he turns around from the stove to find Natasha and Steve doing all-out combat with cutlery over his dining room table. “Guys, I can make more.”
"Yes," Natasha says immediately. She flips her fork between her fingers and sets it down beside her plate. "Please." She adds, awkwardly.
"I think you missed your calling, Sam." Steve says, shoveling a large, cheesy bite into his mouth, arm snaked around his plate to keep it from Natasha. "You could’ve been a hell of a chef."
"What, and miss out on saving your asses every day?" Sam grins, cracking an egg into a bowl. "Nah, I’m just happy cooking for the people I love. Hey, maybe it’ll even land me a Mr. or Mrs. Wilson one day."
He turns around in time to catch the heated look exchanged between Steve and Natasha.
"Hey, hey, no more dinging up my silverware," Sam says.
"Oh," Natasha smirks, resting her fork against her bottom lip. "I think Steve and I just agreed to share."
As an aside: for people excited about Falcon!Cap but not a fan of Remender, it seems that he’ll be playing a more prominent role in Mighty Avengers. I’m not sure how it’s going to play out in the main Avengers titles, whether he’s going to be taking Steve’s place in Avengers or Uncanny Avengers, but if you’re looking for a quality title with Falcon!Cap then I cannot recommend Mighty Avengers enough.
Do you think Todd might one day ask how he was found? Like he'd be a teenager and sit down with Bucky and they would talk about it and if Bucky got overwhelmed or emotional Todd would hug him and tell him how.happy he was that he found him.
As I said earlier, the older he gets the less vague everyone’s answers will be to him. Natasha will probably be like “when he’s 12. 12 is old enough” and Steve and Bucky will be like “._.;;;; yeah ok” and that’s when they wait for him to ask for more details and will finally be like “here is the whole thing. here is why your dad’s flaws don’t matter. nothing about where you come from changes who you are or how much we love you”
