Get to Know Me: [1/5] Female Characters → Natasha Romanoff
"This is what I am now. And you’ll never know who I was before."
can we talk about how they’re sitting around with beer and take-out chinese but there are candles lit like they don’t want to ruin the ambiance of this fine dining experience and Rhodey and Tony have the nerve to be dressed up in suits with ties for this crap
pierce’s death was too good for him.
How hard he hits him though. He nearly knocks him off the chair he hits him so hard and Bucky’s head bounces on rebound. And Bucky isn’t even being defiant here, just stuck. He’s caught in his own thinking and isn’t really resisting, just not reacting. He’s still Winter Soldier here, but Winter Soldier trying to figure out what just happened with his day and we know he could stop Pierce mid swing if he really wanted. But he doesn’t, just sort of pulls himself back upright still clinging to the fact that SOMEHOW the Soldier knew him and can’t figure out why. The little bit of Bucky that’s left frantically trying to organize fragments of memory.
Pierce died too quick.
The thing is…the confidence with which Pierce approaches Bucky, and then hits Bucky, just says that his isn’t the first time Pierce has smacked him around. They way that no one reacts in the background says this isn’t the first time Bucky has been paid physical abuse for whatever reason. Maybe not because he was stuck as he was in this scene, but this was far, far, far from the first time Pierce, or anyone in charge of the Winter Soldier, has hit Bucky.
I don’t think Bucky allows Pierce to hit him just because he’s “stuck”. Like, yeah that might be a contributing factor, but it’s because that is the power imbalance. Yes Bucky, the Winter Soldier, is this super assassin with superstrength and speed and agility, but he is also merely a tool. Without orders, he is just existing, and in the face of his superiors, especially Pierce, any acting out he does would be a big problem. He wouldn’t stop Pierce even if he could want to, even if he wasn’t so confused and stuck. Stopping any of his superiors would have him sustaining an even worse punishment. Injuring the engineers at the beginning of the scene was probably a mark against him already, but then failing to report he mission was enough for Pierce to at least hit him.
The Winter Soldier is a tool, and there is a disgusting power imbalance between him and everyone in HYDRA. He couldn’t say “no” to them or stop them from doing anything to him, even if he thought he could want to. This isn’t the first time someone in charge of him, Pierce especially, has been physically and ruthlessly violent with him.
And that just adds to Pierce’s death being too kind, and makes me pray even harder for a Bucky vs. Crossbones showdown in Cap 3.
First official look at Steve Rogers and Thor in Age of Ultron.
You ever wonder how often Bucky told Steve he surrounded them with a team of insane people? Cause I do.
The Howling Commados do not get NEARLY enough love
I’m holding out hope that there are gonna be a lot of Howling Commandos flashbacks in Agent Carter. Or just more of the Commandos being awesome post-war.
I need to reblog this because I think we need to take a second to appreciate each of their faces in that last gif…
Bucky’s the epitome of "That pleases me; good job, Dernier. I’m glad that worked."
Even STEVE gets a little smile on the end, like, "Heh, that Dernier and his bomb shenanigans."
But then there’s Gabe who just sort of shakes his head like that Frenchie, swear to God. He’s like five. Because you KNOW Dernier was closest to Gabe and so Gabe’s just like, "I love ya but for god’s sakes…" (Kind of like Bucky with Steve)
But out of all those reactions, I don’t know whose I love more: Falsworth’s or Dugan’s.
Because Falsworth doesn’t even look remotely phased. He looks like he could be zoning off and thinking about pudding or tea or other English stuff like the true sir he is.
But then there’s Dum Dum. And Dum Dum’s just like, OOH IT WENT BANG HAR HAR HAR HAR
do you remember the scene where Steve shows page from his notebook with all the things he missed while he’d been napping? so, this page is different for Russia. here it is
