We all love writing Steve as an adorable, fluffy kitten, because, let’s face it, he actually is.

That is, if you remember said adorable, fluffy kitten can deal some serious damage with teeth and claws if you piss it off.

(Poor Bucky must’ve gotten so many stress ulcers keeping an eye out…

I want to see Steve playing chess with his mom and getting really good at it. And poker. Everyone asks in the 107th ask Bucky how he got to be so good at cards, and he just smiles and says he learned from the best.


You know what, I am SO ON BOARD.

So basically MCU only introduces Sarah Rogers to us as a TB nurse, dying either in 1924 (Steve would’ve been 6 years old) or as CATWS shows us, dying when Steve was an adult.  But either way, sick and dead is how we’re introduced to her and we don’t know anything else.

So let’s fill in the blanks. Let’s expand that. 

Imagine Sarah Rogers being a suffragette.  MCU tells us she was a nurse - hell, maybe she was even a certified midwife.  Imagine Sarah Rogers safely delivering so many babies in the neighborhood before she had to stop because she was assigned to the TB ward.  Imagine Sarah being a source of advice to young women, especially the ones who ended up in a “family way” - helping them out and screw the fuckers in society who’d frown down on the girls who got “in trouble” but would never blame the boys.

Imagine Sarah Rogers fighting for women’s rights and reproductive health and passing on these beliefs to her son.

Imagine Sarah Rogers teaching Steve how to play chess and then how to win at poker and how to cheat so he’d know when he’s being conned.  Imagine Sarah teaching Steve how to make people underestimate him, because those are the cards she’s been dealt with all her life and she knows how to make it work for her and now she’s passing it on to her son.

Imagine Sarah as Steve Rogers would remember her - bright and sassy and snarky, but still a lady in every sense of the word.  Imagine her, and I’ll be shamelessly stealing from my favorite Irish priest writer Father Greeley, as Boudicaa, wild Morrigan - fierce Irish warrior queens, who passed on her blood and her spirit to her physically fragile boy. 

Imagine Sarah sitting young Bucky Barnes down, having figured out, even then, that this lad loves her boy, with a love that’s fierce and true. 

"You mind him, Bucko.  He’s a handful, he is, but he’ll surprise you each and every time.  You be good to each other."

"Yes, ma’am."

She’s the only one, other than Steve, who’s ever called him “Bucko.”

"What it was going to be, we were trying to complicate the relationship between Cap and his S.H.I.E.L.D agent friends. If Hawkeye got a call from S.H.I.E.L.D saying Captain America is a fugitive, would he listen to that call or not listen to that call? That sequence actually was heartbreaking for us to cut it. I think it ultimately might have been a conflict with Renner’s schedule. But there was a great sequence where Hawkeye was chasing Cap through Washington D.C. there was an awesome sequence where they confronted each other in a ravine on the outskirts of D.C. and Hawkeye was shooting a series of arrows closing in on Cap, Cap closing in on him. And then Cap took him down and he realized for the first time that Hawkeye was trying to trick S.H.I.E.L.D, where he whispered something into Cap’s ear that Cap had a tracker on his suit and to punch Hawkeye to make it look real, because there was a Quinjet hovering above where they were watching the feedback back at S.H.I.E.L.D. So it was a cool sequence."

This is my absolute favorite part of the movie.

In September, Irish songwriter Hozier released the video for his gospel-inspired epic, “Take Me to Church,” a cavernoussong that uses love and ecstasy as a religious metaphor. The video depicts two men’s gentle intimacy, followed by brutal gay-bashing at the hands of masked vigilantes against lyrics like, “I was born sick, but I love it / command me to be well / Amen. Amen. Amen.”

The song serves simultaneously as a message about human rights, a commentary about Hozier’s upbringing in what he calls a “cultural landscape that is blatantly homophobic,” and a strong statement about the institutional homophobia in Putin’s Russia. [x]

JESUS. This whole vid is incredible, of course, but it’s all the little touches, so subtle and so deftly executed, that give me chills: the bullets in the funvee turning into stars, waterboarding from the cave transitioning into his drowning in IM3, the arc reactor pulsing like a heart. I’m in awe.
