Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.
Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.
Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.
i also thought this was interesting because it reveals something about the subtleties of sharon’s job as an espionage agent, the particular social skills she needs. she has to keep steve close, so that she can keep an eye on and protect him, so when she unexpectedly comes into contact with him, she takes the opportunity to make friendly, just-this-side-of-flirtatious conversation. of course, regardless of whether she’d be interested in seeing him socially or romantically (and i don’t think the movie gives us any real clues as to whether she is or not; sharon’s not quite the cipher natasha is, but she has a pretty good poker face), she know that she can’t pursue it, because it would be a conflict of interest in terms of her job as a spy. and she deals with the situation with a great deal of finesse.
i thought it was pretty impressive on a number of levels.
Reblogging this again because it just makes me realize that this demonstrates Sharon choosing duty over love.

i wish we were friends in preschool.
i wish you gave me a barbie for my sixth birthday, even though i don’t like them.
i wish i threw a rock thru your window in second grade.
i wish your folks caught us kissing in the kitchen.
i wish you snuck out at night to come pick me up so we could walk in the park.
i wish everybody knew that we were meant to be long before we did.
i wish you weren’t so far away.
i wish that i could change the past.
but…i don’t want to.
because this is you,
and that’s what i want.
From my Big Ex, years and years ago. Whatever else happened, it really does remain the most romantic thing anyone’s ever said to me.

On the set of Avengers 2, you hear a shouting in the distance. The cast pauses, wondering what’s going on, and why set security hasn’t stopped this disturbance. It’s only then that they see what’s happening; Anthony Mackie has arrived on set bellowing “CAPTAIN AMERICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA” as he runs past Chris Evans, completely nude, and steals the shield never to be seen again that day.
