Anonymous asked: I don't get people who woobify bucky just like I don't get people who paint steve as an innocent. they're both soldiers who have killed (and continue to kill) people.

Same, anon. Same.

no but really short people are so mean dude. i got a lot of short friends and they kinda scare me

us tall people are so nice and soft-hearted and everyone always picks on us for being tall and we’re like “haha yeah”

short people will easily start planning a murder if u pick on them

It’s because they’re closer to hell.

Stop woobifying Bucky

Bucky is not some lost little lamb who got turned around. James Buchanan Barnes was a soldier, a sergeant who rose from the drafted ranks, a sniper, a survivor, and before that, a man who finished fights his best friend was too stupid not to start and too weak to win. He had a far more gray moral code than Steve Rogers, right from the start, and he was a killer by the time he was captured by Hydra.

Hydra didn’t make the weapon, they honed it.

I’m not saying he’s a villain, because he’s not. I’m not saying he deserves the guilt for his work as the Winter Soldier. I’m saying that Bucky Barnes was never an innocent, and that’s why this is so hard for him. The thing that was taken away from his was his choice. Sergeant James Barnes chose to work with Captain America as part of the Howling Commandos. He chose to kill people as part of that work. And he did it because he believed it was right.

The Winter Soldier never chose to carry out the assassinations he was responsible for.

That’s the tragedy of Bucky Barnes.

I’m confused by your argument antheia, because on the one hand, you say that Bucky had his choice, his free will completely stripped away from him, but on the other hand you are arguing that he deserves his guilt for what he did as Winter Soldier?  That it’s still his fault somehow?  Those two things seem to contradict each other, unless I’m particularly dense today and missing something big (totally a possibility lol).

Personally, I haven’t seen any “woobifying” of Bucky, but if people are doing that, I agree with you about him not being a little lost lamb or whatever.

Yes, you are totally missing something: I explicitly said that he did not deserve his guilt for what he did as the Winter Soldier. I can see where you’d miss that as it’s paired awkwardly in that line. Which is what happens when you draft something before your first coffee.

ugh, I read that sentence like 5 times, and kept thinking, but why would he deserve guilt for his time as the winter soldier?  So yes, I need a new prescription for my glasses lol. 

If it makes you feel any better, yesterday I went into the place where I get breakfast every morning — and always order the same thing — and it took me thirty seconds to remember the word “Croissant.” 

Of course, Tom would notice this during a live chat. [at 16:00 mark]

bucky spending hours at that smithsonian exhibit, staring at everything, watching every single one of the little “newsreel” clips, getting escorted out of the museum because he’s the last one there, sir, you must not have heard our announcements, but we’re open at ten tomorrow

bucky going to the exhibit every single day for a week straight and that one older security guard is so nice to him, telling him in a low, conspiratory whisper one evening that he was there when the captain america costume got stolen by captain america himself, isn’t that just ridiculous? and you’re a dead ringer for sergeant barnes, son, you’d look good in that costume

bucky finally showing up on steve’s doorstep on a rainy evening – it’s a spacious old brownstone, sam up tippy-top, steve on the ground floor, nat in the basement – and he’d had a whole speech prepared and carefully memorized but when he sees steve’s shocked face it all crumbles and he just sort of scrambles to catch his breath, hands clenched tight in his coat pockets, prosthesis whirring, and steve just looks at him for a solid minute then tells him to come in, they’ll throw some couch cushions on the ground, it’ll be like old times, and bucky just breaks

it’s messy and it’s horrible and bucky wakes up screaming almost every night but steve is steady and solid and reassuring like he’s always been, and he asks natasha and bruce to help him find a psychologist after bucky confesses to him, barely whispering, that he thinks he needs some Help

steve being gentle with bucky because god it was hard enough to get thrown into the 21st century but getting tortured, electrocuted, tossed in and out of cryo, practically lobotomized––

steve being so fucking gentle when he helps bucky sort through his memories, starts telling him stories and leaving out details and watching that old grin slide across bucky’s face when he remembers something steve didn’t mention

steve and bucky going back to that smithsonian exhibit together on a slow, snowy wednesday morning when everyone’s at work and at school, taking their time, and there are a couple of moments where bucky starts to shut down but steve touches his shoulder or his back and they move through it together

running into that old security guard as they leave and when bucky winks at him, steve has to hide a grin because that’s absolutely the bucky that he grew up with

sometimes it’s a step forward and sometimes it’s three steps back; bucky is pretty sure the nightmares will be a constant for the rest of his life but that’s okay, because steve is there every time and–– -

well, to the end of the line, right?
