Bucky Barnes always being the caregiver and protector for his siblings, for Steve. Bucky always putting himself between everyone else and the world. Bucky being a metaphorical (and sometimes literal, with Steve getting into fights) wall that no one has ever been able to truly get through.
Dum Dum Dugan looking out for himself. Dum Dum always taking care of number one - that is, his own ass - because other people are only going to drag you down. Dum Dum who is that guy in the stories, the one who appeared and disappeared in almost the same breath.
Dum Dum and Bucky meeting at basic. Dum Dum noticing the way that Bucky always goes out of the way to talk to the really homesick guys, who goes back during runs to make sure that everyone gets to the end. Dum Dum starting to notice that there isn’t anyone really returning the favor.
Bucky suddenly having this mountain of a man badgering him about eating enough and sleeping enough. Bucky having someone who backs him up at almost ever turn. Bucky not knowing what hte hell to do about that.
Dum Dum learning to give a shit, even two, about another person.
Bucky learning to let someone actually take care of him for once.
In the battlefield, before they’re captured, Bucky stepping in front of the other men and Dum Dum trying to step in front of Bucky.
Bucky giving Dum Dum the name Dum Dum.
Dum Dum fucking RAGING when they drag Bucky away to Zola’s laboratory. Dum Dum trying to get them to take him instead of Bucky. Dum Dum sitting and staring at a wall and wondering how this happened, how he got stuck with this dumb kid who is too smart for his own good.
“Raising a child is like taking care of someone who’s on way too many shrooms, while you yourself are on a moderate amount of shrooms. I am not confident in my decisions, but I know you should not be eating a mousepad.”—Ron Funches (via lazybookreviews)
A little while back I was complaining to someone about how I desperately wanted to listen to The Winter Soldier’s audio commentary, but that it didn’t look like the DVD included commentary. The person looked at me like I was an idiot and went “you can buy the Blu-Ray and buy it on your laptop, dummy!” and I was like “… oh! okay! awesome! :D”
And now, after purchasing my first hard copy of a movie since 2012, I have realized that my computer? Yeah, it doesn’t play Blu-Rays. Not even a little bit.
So now I’m sitting here with a $30 piece of plastic that I can’t do anything with except return to Amazon, downloading 18 GIGABYTES of Blu-Ray movie just so that I can get the audiocommentary.
I just… there has to be a simpler way. Why is life terrible. I know that I should’ve checked my computer’s specs beforehand but it’s fairly new and that person seemed so CONFIDENT and I just hate everything ughhhhhh.
