six fanfictions i am currently craving:
- the steve rogers and bucky barnes are really mad about these newfangled bananas show, starring steve rogers and bucky barnes, who are really mad about these newfangled bananas
- this same fic, five more times
#TO EXPLAIN: until the 1950s the bananas that were available in the US were a different type of banana than the kind we eat now #but then those bananas got a wasting banana disease and essentially died out #so now we eat a different variety of banana that was resistant to wasting banana disease #which is by all accounts totally not as good as the old school banana #THE LINK UP THERE IS TO A REALLY INTERESTING NYT ARTICLE ABOUT BANANAS #THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT SINCE I READ IT IN ‘08 OKAY?! #and also i just want to think forever about happy things #like bucky barnes taking a bite of banana and spitting it out and yELLING #while steve rogers sits next to him nodding in angry agreement
YOU CAN BUY GROS MICHEL BANANAS IN HAWAII (possibly only Big Island? I’m not 100% sure)
i spent my last family vacation there trying to hunt some down at the fruit markets

Peggy Carter helped found SHIELD after Steve “died”.
It was founded at the camp that Steve trained at.
On marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Agent Ward says “Someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD”
Peggy created and named the entire spy organization after STEVE’S SHIELD.
OH MY FREAKING GOD.
it gets better.
Peggy Carter was motivated to further acts of heroism by the death of her love interest.
In the Peggy Carter story, Steve Rodgers got Fridged.

Halfway through explaining to requiodile how they’d done the arm prop for TWS I realised I was quoting info from the artbook that I hadn’t seen on Tumblr. So here you go!
"What the directors described was an arm almost beyond what Tony Stark could do now, the highest tech possible, so whoever had replaced Winter Soldier’s arm was beyond what even our main technological hero of the Marvel Universe could accomplish," Meinerding says. "That allowed us to go with the horizontal cut lines across the arm, something fairly traditional in the Marvel Universe, so it was kind of cool to be able to do it on-screen."
Shane Mahan, Physical Suit Effects Supervisor at Legacy Effects, describes the process of creating the Winter Soldier’s arm from a life-cast of actor Sebastian Stan: “First, we do an exact mold of the actor’s arm for the size and the dimension, and then we do a casting out of that. But we also took him to get a 3-D scan of his arm, so we had digital information as well as a hard, real-world casting to work from. We took the designs from Ryan Meinerding’s design team, and then one of our digital artists here — Won-il Song — created a digital sculpture.”
"I designed this to be a seamless forearm piece," Mahan continues. "And after the digital sculpture has been done, and the part has been grown and cleaned up, it matches up to a bicep piece. One of our artists, Chris Swift, is pictured testing it."
Legacy created two versions of the Winter Soldier’s arm. “We made one from foam rubber with tracking markers on it for extreme action,” Mahan says. “And then there were these arms made of urethane that were metalized and had less action mobility, but for certain shots looked reflective and really great.”
More scans etc. here.

Been wanting to doodle Peggy Cap ever since that text post a few days ago. I MAY prefer this to Steve haha. She’s SUCH a competent agent to start with and give her super soldier abilities and holy crap.
(quick edit. forgot to color the helmet strap. Whoops)
