#the day nat and steve meet #she makes a joke about him being really old #do you think she does this to him every day #oH LOOK STEVE LET’S GO INTO THIS ANTIQUE SHOP #IM GONNA SEE HOW MUCH THEY’LL PAY ME FOR YOU #despite him being physically like #30 or whatever #she insists on putting 95 candles on his birthday cake #and taking him to museums and telling him where in the dinosaur exhibit he would probably be #she asks him if it was cool back when the mayflower came over to america #did you have fun building the continental railroad #did you swim across the pacific and make a trek to visit Jesus or did you just stay in america all the time #i bet these jokes are daily and they never stop #and somehow they always get steve to laugh
Pack your bags, kiddies, we’re flying economy
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
Another commission for Annelise; pre-serum, modern-day hipster!Steve Rogers, which is the cutest request I’ve had in a while. Had fun doing this. :))
my commission info is here.
#alkdsfjl #how much you want to bet those tattoos are actually just pen #because watch steve be allergic to glycerin which is in 99.9% of all tattoo ink #(plus he’s a hipster so he’ll say he likes the impermanence of traditionally permanent art) #bucky probably likes to lick his thumb and smear the lines over steve’s wrists #bucky the punk; the guy with a full sleeve tattoo down his left arm and too much eyeliner #who likes to sling his tattooed arm over steve’s shoulders and haul him in close; laughing too loud #he sounds like metal when he walks—all the chains and spikes and studs #he should make steve feel small; instead he makes steve feel safe #punk and hipster; lady and the tramp [via queenklu]
Annelise it go better ~

But anyway, I recently sat down to figure out exactly where Steve’s local gay bars would be, or where the closest ones would be, for purposes of plotting things out, and uh … turns out that Steve Rogers lived in the MIDDLE of the biggest cruising/gay bar/gay hangouts area of Brooklyn. Like, a couple blocks from the St. George Hotel, which was almost entirely gay by the early 40s.
This is actually a really great, fascinating essay on the area and time Steve grew up in. The whole idea that Steve (and Bucky even more) would be completely, totally clueless seems even more ridiculous when you really look at this stuff.
Sometimes a vid is just perfect. Captain America and The Avengers through Steve’s point-of-view. The timing is perfect. The lyrics match up wonderfully. Great vid.
