I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:
If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?
If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?
If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?
Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.
Well would you look at that
Chemistry more like cheMYSTERY because i have no idea what’s going on
YOU KNOW THAT FEELING WHEN YOU’RE LISTENING TO A MOVIE’S SOUNDTRACK AND YOU JUST KNOW WHICH SCENE GOES WITH EACH TRACK AND YOU SAY THE DIALOGUES OUT LOUD AND YOU JUST FEEL LIKE FLYING BECAUSE THE VIOLINS AND TRUMPETS AND CLARINETS AND ALL THE INSTRUMENTS AND YOU GET THIS RUSH OF HAPPINESS BECAUSE FUCKING SOUNDTRACKS MAN
I’VE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE FOR SOMEBODY TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THIS FEELING
"Why are you grinning?"
“I’m not,” said Harry quickly, looking down at his Transfiguration notes and attempting to straighten his face. The truth was that Ron had just reminded Harry forcibly of another Gryffindor Quidditch player who had once sat rumpling his hair under this very tree.

I have to comment on the fact that when it comes to the serum, Bucky is souped UP on that stuff. Steve probably tones back how much he’s hitting normal humans, but GOOD LANDS. Bucky’s not just knocking someone down, he’s getting them air borne. With a kick. We know the cyborg arm is really strong, but BUCKY is insanely strong. Reminds me of the comic where he throws an arrow through someone’s face with his good arm, not even the cyborg one. Bucky is scary ramped up in the strength department.
This is why when people talk about Bucky having received an “inferior” version of the serum, I kind of raise my eyebrows. The overall effects of Zola’s serum might have differed from Erskine’s, but it certainly doesn’t seem to have left Bucky physically weaker. There are a lot of fics that assume Bucky would not be a match for Steve if Steve were actually willing to fight him, but Bucky more than proves his strength in Winter Soldier.
well, zola’s serum is presumably a derivative of the serum the red skull took — and we all know that didn’t work out too well. bucky shows no sign of superior strength in cap1, with only the implication that he has a good healing factor (he walked how far after being tortured and experimented upon?). it kept him alive during the fall, but it presumably didn’t do much more, or took longer to take effect.
the winter soldier is souped up on more than he was in 1945, that’s for sure. they’ve had years to try out additional serums on him, give him steroids, multiple enhancements, extremely intense training, and who knows what else. the winter soldier we see has strength as well as heightened agility, speed, reflexes, and specialized skills. we never see steve getting more than basic training (although we can assume he’s been training in martial arts with shield/natasha).
the costs of becoming a supersoldier were very different to steve and bucky — steve became more, but bucky became less when he was turned into the winter soldier. they dehumanized his strength and ignored all ethics in transforming him. which makes it even sadder that bucky has unwillingly been made into a living weapon, at such high a cost.
