Sam: No problem. Saving Captain America. It’s what I do.

goldandlights said: A few months post Cap2, Steve’s at a coffeeshop when Bucky shows up. Without hydras constant ‘caretaking’ his condition is starting to fall away and he’s very confused (also: ptsd).
"I didn’t know where else to go"
people who think steve rogers is a boring character probably didn’t watch the same movies
Put under the cut for your consideration/protection from spoilers:
and so, half the internet uproariously celebrated the murder of a child
i’m happy for you game of thrones fandom
ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.
There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.
Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?
THIS FUCKING SHOW I SWEAR TO GOD
