AHHHH I LOVE THIS SCENE. LOVE. Because Steve is just so lovable, Natasha is so amazing and we could probably count with one hand all the times Natasha Romanoff would be caught in public, standing on her tiptoes to kiss someone on the cheek. <3
It’s clear that she adores Steve and just wants him to be happy. He is still so lost in so many ways, but it’s these displays of love and kindness that keep him going. Sometimes Natasha underestimates herself too much in her own capacity for goodness and to care for other people. And I’m so very glad how this movie doesn’t let up on the fact that Natasha has such a good heart, and her friendship with Steve is a most wonderful way of showing that.
Reblogging again for the tag feels:
#nat just goes about caring about people in a quiet and understated way #like her little sidequest to get steve to date #it was about her wanting him to be happy and have good things in his life and connecting to the world that he feels so lost in #she probably disregards it as any points in her column because it’s not exactly wiping red out of her ledger #but it still says a lot about her #in some ways more than any death defying stunt to save the world ever could (via twistdmentality)
You know, I just can’t get over that scene after Hydra took them away to be executed, and Natasha Romanoff, literally bleeding to certain death with each second — still fights through her own pain to reach out to a shell-shocked Steve, and reassure him that it’s not his fault.
How many times Natasha would have done this already? Taking care of people and telling them that they’re going to be okay and she’s there for them, despite herself already bleeding out and deeply hurt as well? In the Avengers, she never stops appealing to Bruce even as he’s losing himself to the literal monster inside him, swearing on her life to save his. She refuses to let Erik blame himself for falling under Loki’s spell. She takes up the call to take down Clint when nobody could, broken leg and all.
And this — this is the most important part. Because what Natasha had to do to Clint, is exactly what Steve had to do to Bucky, in order to stop them from bring further harm to other people. Don’t think for a moment that it wouldn’t hurt Natasha to hit and batter away at Clint like that. He’s to Natasha, like how Bucky is to Steve. And then when Clint comes back and remembers what he has done when he was brainwashed, again, Natasha allows absolutely no room for him to even think that he was responsible in any way.
There’s a quiet kindness to Natasha that can be so easily overlooked, because she’s so deeply buried in all the mazes of her past and identities and circumstances — and yet this is her, something of her that has always been there, undisputable and just as genuine as the people she thinks she owes herself to.
okay, we’ve all seen this post but i remembered it wrong and was like, “haha, imagine winter soldier about to destroy a hydra facility when he finds a gaggle of steves”
Bucky plans elaborate and ultimately pretty harmless revenge scenarios.
I mean, Sam LOVES Falcon!Bear and makes Tony buy out a warehouse worth so he can distribute them to the underprivileged children he volunteers with.
Natasha’s largely amused at the Black Widow bear and sneaks one inside Bucky’s duffle the next time he goes for a mission abroad. He sends her pictures of the Natasha bear sitting across from him at the breakfast table, sharing his bed, holding hands with him on a farris wheel etc. This is maybe intended to make Natasha feel jealous but instead she is delighted and sends him pictures back of Bucky Bear triumphantly perched on the body of a knocked out Hydra guard, “pretending” to cut the wire of a bomb that has 0.28 seconds on the clock (Nat disarmed the bomb after snapping the picture) and at the wheel of a car which is clearly currently involved in a high-speed chase. Natasha maybe has no idea what a normal romance looks like.
Steve is just. Overall baffled at how many people like pre-serum Steve bears. Of course they don’t sell as well as the Falcon or Black Widow ones, but apparently people do have a thing for Steve Rogers, not just Captain America
Bucky doesn’t see the big fuss, really. They didn’t even get the costume right. As if he’d wear little sky-blue booty shorts in war with tights and thigh-high boots.
"I think they’re cute," Steve says, smiling as he picked one off of the stand.
"Don’t buy that." Bucky says, snatching it out of his hand. Steve just picks up another one.
"You used to collect Captain America comic books back in the day," Steve points out.
"That’s different." Bucky sniffs. "Those were a riot. This is character assassination.”
Steve laughs. “Maybe if we gave him a little bottle of bourbon and a tiny sniper rifle?”
He finds one on Natasha’s bed.
"I can explain." She says, walking in to find him staring at it. He turns to look at her and she grins. "Actually, there’s nothing to explain. I’ve just always wanted to say that."
"I feel like you’re stepping out on me," Bucky says, picking up the bear. It even smells like Natasha, like it had been snuggled against her neck night after night while Bucky was mucking through the swamps of Panatal. He was jealous.
"That’s such an adorable accusation I’m not even going to get angry at you," Natasha says, plugging in her hair straightener and fixing her makeup in the mirror as it heats up.
Bucky squeezes the bear as hard as he can, making its little glass eyes bug out of the domino mask.
"Uh huh," Sam says unsympathetically, slurping on his three berry smoothie. "Yeah talk to me when Falcon Bear gets so popular that Natasha cuddles one to sleep every night. Then I’ll cry with you."
"That would be weird, though." Bucky says, stirring his own strawberry banana smoothie. "A bear with wings?"
"A Falcon bear."
"But it would be a bear, but also a bird?"
"No, it would be a bear in a Falcon suit-" Sam smacked Bucky on the arm as Bucky started cracking up.
For Christmas, Bucky buys a plain bear and digs out an old leather jacket of his that had gotten torn up on a mission. Painstakingly, he sews a little leather Falcon harness, complete with a full set of wings painted silver. And little goggles to boot.
It looks so good that he makes a little Black Widow bear too, choosing a bear with reddish-colored fur and scouring the internet for weeks to find an hourglass charm he can make into the belt buckle.
Captain America already had a bear, though it had never attained the popularity of Bucky Bear. So Bucky makes a Steve bear. Complete with a gingham shirt tucked into khaki pants, and an artfully rumpled trench coat. In one paw it held a falsified army recruitment form.
"Wow, that’s so thoughtful," Clint says, when he saw them. "Way to blow all of us out of the water forever, you douchebag."
"Oh these aren’t gifts," Bucky says lightly, packing them in boxes. "These are revenge.”
Falcon, Black Widow and preserum Steve Rogers bears hit the stores a month before Christmas, and quickly become the best selling toys of 2014, quickly outstripping the classic Bucky Bear, who most modern children could no longer associate with The Avengers.
"Really?" Steve demands, "A falsified army recruitment form?"
"I think it’s cute," Bucky laughs, eyeing the shelves and shelves of bears. "A riot.”
(the word you are looking for is “badass”.
also “ninja” sometimes)
Draw it! draw it! :D Wahoooo go you!
Please be as awesome as Steve and share! >w<!
