Steve keeps looking to him for reassurance. And Bucky’s always waiting to look back. I’m not sure who’s orbiting who here but wow their senses of gravitational equilibrium must be wrecked now.
The things that drive gravitational force and orbital mechanics: the gravitational constant G, the masses of the two bodies M and m (you know the boys would argue over which of them was the capital and which wasn’t— you know they’d both be right), and the distance between them r.
And look at this—how Steve has grown (you used to be smaller) and Bucky has shriveled (he used to take up such space with his posturing, wide arms and wide grins). They figure out how to make it work, in the Commandos, or well enough— Bucky as the sniper, the shadow, the right hand man, while Steve steps forward to lead into the light, glancing over to check his lodestone, make sure he’s still there.
But then Bucky falls, then he’s gone (black holes, vacuums, dark matter swirling close)—and then he’s back. But the mass has changed all over again. The Winter Soldier is massive and dense, compact, heavy, steel. There is no equilibrium here, just a free fall into cold waters.
In TFA, as Doc keeps pointing out to me, Bucky is always the one to initiate contact. He’s always the one to cross the distance between them, to shrink r until it’s next to nothing. (You know what that does? r^2 is in the denominator of Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation. You divide by it. And when you divide by next to nothing, what you get is undefined, what you get is almost everything. Divide by almost zero and you approach infinity).
But here they are, in the future, and Bucky doesn’t even know his name, certainly doesn’t know what to call the tug on the pit of his stomach that pulls him toward this stranger whose face he recognizes.
(It’s called gravity, Buck, and even in this shiny new future we don’t quite understand how it works).

Character Wardrobe Meme
#3: Work uniform
#20: Last minute throw-ons
#21: The most expensive thing they own
Apparently when you put photos in an ask you can’t see the high-res versions, so I’m reuploading them here for better quality! uvu
and for #21, they’re wearing nothing but the most expensive thing they own *wink wink*
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
When Dean Winchester finally dies (for good, this time), Death takes a holiday.
He spends a week going to every fair and carnival in the continental US.
He eats every deep fried concoction possible.
When his holiday comes to an end, he goes to Heaven and knocks on the pearly gates with the head of his cane. He asks to speak with Dean Winchester.
Dean is surprised to find Death there when the angels bring him forward. Death swore that their last meeting, when Death personally escorted Dean’s soul to Heaven, would be the final time they ever saw one another.
“I found it,” Death tells him. “The perfect pie. It was in Muncie, Indiana. Apple, with a flaky, golden crust. The ratio of cinnamon to sugar and its balance with the tart Granny Smith…. it was just perfect. Divine, even.”
Dean stares at Death, unsure of why he is telling him this, but then he looks down. In Death’s hand is a wrinkled, white paper bag. Inside the bag is a slice of the perfect pie.
Dean takes the bag, mystified.
“Thanks for the pickle chips that time,” Death says, then disappears into the void.
did you just give me Death/Dean bromance feels
#And Dean turns back and walks back into the gates#He treks up an inclined road until it flattens and curves around#When he reaches his heaven Dean raises a free hand above his head and yells #’SAM#CAS #LOOKIT! PIE!’ (x)
Movie idea: Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Lucy Liu in crime comedy. Where Lucy character is no-nonsense NYPD detective(Liu) who joins forces with Shakespeare-obsessed Scotland Yard detective (Hiddleston) to catch charismatic con artist (Elba) who may or may not compromise both of detectives. Cultural differences, Shakespeare quotations in worst possible moments and Lucy Liu’ character being 1000000% done.

Sirius spreading a rumour that he has a cat just so when people ask him about it he can go, “Nah, I’m a dog person.”
Peter being loud so when a teacher chews him out, he can promise to be “quiet as a mouse”
Remus skipping meals so people can hear his stomach grumbling and he can apologise for being “hungry like the wolf.”
He tries. he tries all the time.
