comicinsane asked: steve rogers
something that i noticed on the third rewatch of captain america: for a really fucking lonely guy steve sure has a lot of eating paraphernalia in his house, like at least 20 different glasses. and ~artistically arranged~ too.
so months ago, natasha probably came over to steve’s apartment (actually broke into steve’s apartment to play videogames and rifle through his medicine cabinet) and encountered the single lonely table. the single lonely bowl he owns with the single lonely chipped mug. one single lonely radio. one picture of the howling commandos taped to the wall with one single lonely piece of masking tape. and she’s just like this is disgusting i’m drowning in my own tears ugh
then steve comes home to find natasha sitting at his table, eating his raisin bran and glaring at him and he’s like jesus christ !!!! and she’s like we’re going to ikea you human disaster
steve’s like, i don’t appreciate your tone and also we should really talk about this breaking and entering thing as he obediently follows her to the car
steve rogers adjusting to technology and using a pen tablet though
steve would legit be the one on the team who would constantly have to be pulled out of bar fights like
"so i told her that… steve where are you going?… steve gdi COME BACK HERE not again!"
"THE LADY SAID SHE DIDN’T WANT A DRINK!"

#!!!#for real though i think a lot of people forget that steve was the punk who picked fights with bullies#that he isnt an old timey gentleman who never swears and is always proper#like nah son u can bet that if he tried to take on a mountain of a man with 90 pounds of him ft. a trashcan lid#u can bet that he will use his new body to beat up all the new bullies whilst handing the victim a handkerchief to boot ok#steve rogers (via savingsergeantbarnes)
and I’m always honest
its been three weeks but steve saying “on va voir” is still the hottest thing in the entirety of cap 2
Okay, but like—
What if when Bucky comes back, instead of Steve having to protect and kind of gently usher Bucky back into the world, Bucky leaps right back into protecting Steve.
Tony calls Steve “spangly” one too many times and Bucky uncurls his fingers real slow and says “My arm’s pretty spangly now too, Stark, whatsit to you?”
Thor and Steve spar and Bucky is so horrified when he happens upon them beating the crap out of each other that he plucks Mjolnir from where Thor’s tossed it and he points it at Steve accusatorily and is like, “A hammer? You’re letting hammers beat on you now? Over my dead body, pal—” and he’s the only one who doesn’t get it that he just picked up Mjolnir holy shit because he’s so busy waving Mjolnir around and lecturing Steve
Fox News calls Steve an anti-patriot one too many times so Bucky makes Natasha help him hack their Facebook page and leave hundreds of vaguely threatening messages which are ostensibly from different people except all of them have the same profile picture which is just the Cap star painted on a bionic fucking arm as a symbol of undying loyalty
Bucky keeps beating up villains before Steve can even get to them, like at this point even Doom has noticed so he tries to avoid even looking at Steve because that’d pretty much guarantee getting a couple of his nicest Doombots ripped the fuck apart without any ceremony at all and Steve wouldn’t mind except last battle against the Wrecking Crew, Bucky was benched because he had hurt himself and even then he managed to co-op the comms with helpful “suggestions” that were actually thinly veiled orders to flank Steve instead of, you know, fight the bad guy
The Quinjet gets retrofitted with a “Cap-net” because Bucky is fed up with Steve jumping out of fucking planes
Just—give me all the “Bucky, I’m 95 not nine” and “Well if you’re so fucking old, stop acting like a kid, wear a goddamned coat in the rain, Steve—“
i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
Steve Rogers taking off his helmet is a sexual experience. His helmet hair is enough of a turn on, but my sexual orientation is Steve speaking French.
“He works with Captain America and follows him through this ordeal because he believes in him.” - Anthony Mackie.
Vocally political and liberal Steve Rogers
Fox News has no idea how to handle it because he’s Captain America and he’s literally from the 40’s like how do that handle that
He refuses to go on half of the news shows because they lie
Mostly ends up on the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, and the Young Turks
Starts charities that focus on kids and the poor
Donations to veterans charities go through the roof
Treatment for PTSD in veterans suddenly gets addressed after he admits to being diagnosised with it
Steve Rogers starting a twitter specifically for linking people to horrible news stories and calling news stations out on their lies and scare tactics
Using his twitter to complain about the state of public news and how it should be a space of change and value and honesty for the American public, and how he’s so ashamed of it all
He accidentally becomes like public face for the new generation of politically savvy people
They make of shirts like WWCD “what would Cap do?”
Tony is thrilled and proud and hires of team of lawyers exclusively to handle the news stations screaming about Steve
Fox news gets slapped with so many libel fines and law suits
No, but really. This is a Steve characterization that actually makes sense.
Steve who finds himself 70 years later surrounded by so many of the same politicals fights he remembers from his youth, Steve who finds that the country has lost ground in terms of progressive policies from the days of the WPA, who finds that the SSA is weaker, who finds labor unions that have been rendered toothless or are themselves stumbling blocks to worker’s rights, who — well, Steven Atwell covered Steve’s progressivism p well a while ago. He’s not gonna be some caricature of mid-20th C. “my country is always right/my country right or wrong” patriotism. He’s gonna be from the Sen. Schurz school of thought: “Our country: when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.”
#working-class kid from nyc who grew up during the depression studied fine art at a public university and volunteered to fight at a time when#the war was still v much percieved as about politics — as a fight between liberty [the right of people to determine their own destinies] and#tryanny — breeds of socialism that were about top-down control and conformity; facism#steve who brokes rules left and right#steve who lives the best ideals of his country#of course he’d be at odds with conservative jingoistic patriotism and its politics
