But look at the difference between Bucky’s Winter Soldier outfits!

With HYDRA, it was all about being restrained. The straps across his chest resembled a 1940s straightjacket. He had a muzzle to hide his expression and was weighed down with every type of weapon strapped to his body, a constant reminder of his purpose. A leather jacket isn’t very forgiving for movement (nor are kneepads), and the black cargo pants look standard, nothing special.

But on his own? The Winter Soldier outfit is less elaborate and very modest. Bucky’s wearing jeans: no knee pads, nothing that would hinder his movement. Gone is the straightjacket appearance, leaving him less restrained; Bucky’s replaced it with some sort of breathable material that’s easily layered and easily removed. No muzzle, no goggles, and he’s added a glove to his right hand for his personal protection. He’s limited his weapons to personal preference. He’s brushed the hair out of his face, and removed anything from around his neck. 

Bucky’s no longer a weapon, meant to look threatening – he’s added comfort and personality to his appearance. The outfit is suited to his needs, not HYDRAs.

“Language”

For anyone getting their knickers in a twist over Steve’s AOU line about “language,” just remember:

…And Steve was the one calling him out on it half the time.

So even if Steve Rogers does occasionally curse (and I’m not saying he wouldn’t – he grew up in Brooklyn and he was a soldier, it stands to reason he knew how), as an officer he was responsible for keeping his men reasonably respectable, and likely got into the habit of playfully chiding Bucky about his foul language.

So when Steve says “it just slipped out” – he probably forgot for a moment, in the heat of battle in winter in Europe, that he wasn’t in occupied France with the commandos, and it wasn’t Bucky cussing on the radio.

This isn’t Steve with a stick up his ass. This is Steve right out of the comics, still ridden with PTSD and occasionally forgetting which theater of war he’s in, slipping into the comfort of teasing his best friend.

Thanks for making that painful for me. (Also for making a point to the haters.)

LANGUAGE BUCKY!!!

I had heard about him flying through walls but I had never known the whole story and it’s adorable.

Just imagine Sebastian falling over himself to show his manager he can be badass since he’s kinda like a superhero now and failing ‘cause he tried too hard.

Bless. [x]

I can’t help imagining Bucky Barnes doing something like this at some point. Remember how Steve wasn’t used to his strength post-serum and overcompensated, sending himself flying through a shop window? Bucky has been the Winter Soldier for a long time and was trained to know his own abilities and limits exactly, but being with Steve, goofing around like they used to back in Brooklyn and pretending they’re still two dumb kids who’d get sick riding the roller coaster at Coney Island, well, sometimes he forgets, just for a moment, who and what he is, and ends up doing something ridiculous. Or they’re sparring and showing off in front of Natasha, and suddenly whoops, hello wall, meet 240 pounds of super-soldier. Tony has a maintenance crew on stand-by at the Avengers Tower 24/7.

LET’S NOT FORGET: he tried to convince Steve not to attempt enlisting again, and when Steve was adamant about it Bucky LET HIM DO IT. HE RESPECTS STEVES INSANE LIFE CHOICES oh god, im just 1000000% done with these two actually respectful assholes

i was watching the first avenger and wondering how Bucky knew Steve was getting his ass kicked in the back of some random alley behind a movie theatre

like does he just check alleyways whenever he’s walking down a street to see if Steve’s started another fight he can’t finish

the answer is probably yes

headcanon that, even when brainwashed, Bucky still stops at alleyways and looks down them to find nothing

and he never knows what he’s looking for

Yeah, on the list of things that are OK, I’m gonna have to inform you that this post didn’t make it.

Someone finally giffed it. But LOOK AT THIS FIGHT. Honestly the Winter Soldier was far more on his back heel fighting Natasha than he was Steve this scene. First off, if he hadn’t managed to throw his hand up quickly, she would have garrotted him. She’s literally half his size (he throws her like a rag doll when he finally is able to get a hold of her) and she has him more at a disadvantage than Steve does, who is bigger than him. Next she shorts out his cyber arm (and I assume he has to electrocute himself to pull the thing off). By that second to the last gif his facial expression isn’t even stone cold killer any more, it’s more “REALLY??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” It’s the most human his eyes look up until Steve starts setting off his programing.

We talk about Steve and Bucky going toe to toe, but the one who really has the Winter Soldier’s number for most of their fight is Natasha.

This trapped animal look was awful. That’s not the Winter Soldier. That’s the scared little kid he turns into when he’s confused and in pain. Because the Winter Soldier is a machine. But when the scrap of Bucky that’s still in there starts banging around, the machine goes fetal and he just reverts to this child like thing.

And he knows there’s no help coming. There’s no extraction or exfil plan for the Winter Soldier. He gets himself out or he goes down with the ship. And he’s failed at his mission, so he’s probably expecting Steve to kill him here. He can’t understand why Steve saves him. He’s scared and he’s confused and he’s angry and he doesn’t like feeling any of these things because he doesn’t understand them at all and he liked it better when he didn’t have to feel them.

Oh god this hurts me on a fundamental level because I am convinced that Bucky never really stops wishing for the old days. Like, he comes back to Steve and Natasha and he is a person again, but when it gets intense and the nightmares are too much and he’s already called Sam three or four times to talk about it (because Sam doesn’t understand everything, but Sam knows how to talk to soldiers with PTSD and Bucky Barnes has got a RAGING case of it) he just wishes for Pierce to show up and put him in the chair and tell him it will be fine and just take it all away. Because being a thing is easy but being a person is too, too hard. 

Wow I am seriously breaking the fuck up with you.

“hey steve, did you see the funny thing? steve? steve?”

I can’t believe
That it’s finally me and you and you and me
Just us, and your friend Steve

What’s the deal with your friend Steve

ha ha ha the way steve feels bucky’s gaze without seeing it and turns towards him

ha ha ha the way bucky turns away before steve can see him looking, even though he was glancing back for steve’s reaction and to try and catch his eye, because it is bucky’s instinct after a million times to turn his head just before steve notices him staring

ha ha ha the way steve’s eyes immediately cut away once he realizes bucky wasn’t looking at him like he’s disappointed/embarrased with himself for thinking he was
