bucky spending hours at that smithsonian exhibit, staring at everything, watching every single one of the little “newsreel” clips, getting escorted out of the museum because he’s the last one there, sir, you must not have heard our announcements, but we’re open at ten tomorrow
bucky going to the exhibit every single day for a week straight and that one older security guard is so nice to him, telling him in a low, conspiratory whisper one evening that he was there when the captain america costume got stolen by captain america himself, isn’t that just ridiculous? and you’re a dead ringer for sergeant barnes, son, you’d look good in that costume
bucky finally showing up on steve’s doorstep on a rainy evening – it’s a spacious old brownstone, sam up tippy-top, steve on the ground floor, nat in the basement – and he’d had a whole speech prepared and carefully memorized but when he sees steve’s shocked face it all crumbles and he just sort of scrambles to catch his breath, hands clenched tight in his coat pockets, prosthesis whirring, and steve just looks at him for a solid minute then tells him to come in, they’ll throw some couch cushions on the ground, it’ll be like old times, and bucky just breaks
it’s messy and it’s horrible and bucky wakes up screaming almost every night but steve is steady and solid and reassuring like he’s always been, and he asks natasha and bruce to help him find a psychologist after bucky confesses to him, barely whispering, that he thinks he needs some Help
steve being gentle with bucky because god it was hard enough to get thrown into the 21st century but getting tortured, electrocuted, tossed in and out of cryo, practically lobotomized––
steve being so fucking gentle when he helps bucky sort through his memories, starts telling him stories and leaving out details and watching that old grin slide across bucky’s face when he remembers something steve didn’t mention
steve and bucky going back to that smithsonian exhibit together on a slow, snowy wednesday morning when everyone’s at work and at school, taking their time, and there are a couple of moments where bucky starts to shut down but steve touches his shoulder or his back and they move through it together
running into that old security guard as they leave and when bucky winks at him, steve has to hide a grin because that’s absolutely the bucky that he grew up with
sometimes it’s a step forward and sometimes it’s three steps back; bucky is pretty sure the nightmares will be a constant for the rest of his life but that’s okay, because steve is there every time and–– -
well, to the end of the line, right?
This anatomy and these dance poses are freaking amazing.
I’m eternally jealous.
FUCK I AM IN LOVE WITH THE DIFFERENCE IN THEIR BODY TYPES
I feel like I just walked in on something very private
Uh….so our coach just quit. BUCS is in a week…
CURC playlist, a playlist by Laura Hyatt on Spotify
Two things guys.
1) This week I’m going to be away on training camp. I’m not sure how much active blogging I’ll be doing, but I’ve tried to set up a decent queue to hold things over until the camp is over.
2) If you haven’t followed this playlist, PLEASE please do. We’re in second place right now by a super tiny margin and the club that is beating us just got a load of lottery funding and had a £60,000 boat house built. I don’t begrudge them their nice equipment and boat house but it’s a little frustrating when it’s looking like they might win when they don’t need it whereas if we don’t win, we’re almost guaranteed to lose our top boat because of how much money our club still owes on it.
Seriously guys, all you have to do to really help out our club is click “follow” on the CURC playlist. You don’t even have to listen to it, and we only need you to follow until after the start of May. That’s less than two weeks. EVERY follow counts and we really do need your help. You don’t even need a spotify account, you can sign up via facebook and it won’t post anything to your facebook unless you say it’s okay.
If you have already followed, THANK YOU. Please reblog this post and get your friends and followers to follow and help out as well. I’ll try and have some sort of fun give away or competition if we win to say thank you to everyone who helped out.
Anonymous asked: This season I got moved to bow seat in both boats I race in. I also lost a seat race for A boat and the kid that replaced me said that bow is for the weakest person in the boat, is that true?
No. Bow pair is usually for the lightest and most technical rowers. Bow pairs are scrappy little badasses. Don’t try to talk about how great your technique is in front of them, because they watch your every single stroke. And they see when you’re lunging, and when four seat is late, and if you start bitching at them they might explode. I repeat, do not piss off bow pair. Just because someone is smaller/lighter/more technical than the rowers in the engine room, does not imply any weakness. I will also say that it’s annoying to refer to any seat in a boat as a “weak” seat—different seats have different advantages and disadvantages. Don’t let that pigeonhole you.
I just want to see Sam the PTSD therapy session leader meet Tony Stark, the guy who spent his entire last movie dealing with anxiety attacks brought on by PTSD.
And instead of being snarky about it, Sam manages to get him to take down his sarcastic outer shell and be honest about how much the battle of New York really traumatized him.
Yes. Yes, this would make me happy.
If anyone can do that, it’d be Sam.
LOOK WHAT MY BEST FRIEND GOT MEEEEEEE
I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW I COULD JUST CURL UP AND DIE
Happy Easter to all Sherlockians!

As you can see I planned to do more of these, but I will never ever do that again!
I think a big part of my sanity got lost while drawing this. I know the smiley is missing, but I just don’t dare to draw it on the wallpaper… I might ruin it.
