Bucky only ever puts on Steve’s uniform {because it will always be Steve’s} for alien attacks and the collapse of nations on the level of a world war, and the Winter Soldier is apparently at that level, because Fury is *adamant* he wears the suit. So, suit up, fly out with the Avengers and get the Russian assassin.
The Winter Soldier is scary as fuck, but he is War personified when he see’s Bucky. {redwhiteblueyougotnothingtoproveBULLETinthebuckyBARRELBUCKYofyourit’smebestisguysthisGUNa-t e s t ?}
Bucky’s only half-super soldier, thanks very much Hydra, and the Winter Soldier beats him within an inch of his life. He destroys him. He rips the shield off his arm {rips his *arm* off his body, thank fuck Bucky’s shield arm is his left} and the last thing Bucky remembers is grabbing the muzzle as he drops, and there’s Steve standing with his shield…maybe Bucky didn’t screw up that bad, maybe Steve’s taking him home, finally, let him go home….
It takes everything the Avengers have to take the Soldier down, including a lightening strike from Thor, a XXXL size tranq Clint keeps in reserve for the Hulk, the Hulk himself holding the guy in a choke hold, and Widows stingers as well as magnetized cuffs Tony jury-rigged together from a downed suit. And the guy still isn’t down. He’s half conscious and threatening them in Russian but he’s contained, and they have bigger things to deal with, namely Captain America dying on them. Clint pulls the cowl off Bucky’s head to check his head wounds, Tony has JARVIS running scans through his suit, and it takes a second for either of them to notice the diatribe in Russian has cut off.
"B-Bucky?"
Clint would swear up and down that he could never be shocked by anything after joining SHIELD. Too much weird shit to get phased anymore.
But the Winter Soldier crying like a child over the body of Captain America.
That was something he never thought he’d see.
He wishes like hell he never had.

Start of my and shortsighted-owl-lion ‘s take on Winter Soldier Steve

shortsighted-owl-lion's part

When The Soldier stops crying, he doesn’t speak, he doesn’t eat and Clints sure as hell that if it wasn’t for all the restraints - the guy wouldn’t be breathing.


The soldiers eyes are dead, hollowed out, black holes that are sucking in the light, the life, the pool of slowly congealing blood and viscera that was present. And Clint swears that if he turns his hearing aids up, there is one single word uttered again and again (andagainandagain) like a sinners prayer.

I have asked this myself in the past and never gotten an answer.

Maybe today will be the day we are both finally enlightened.

woodsgotweird said: man i just jumped on the bandwagon because i am a sheep. i have no idea where it came from and i ask myself this question all the time

Maybe someone made a typo and it just got out of hand?

I kinda feel like panic!at the disco started the whole exclamation point thing and then it caught on around the internet, but maybe they got it from somewhere else, IDK.

The world may never know…

Maybe it’s something mathematical?

I’ve been in fandom since *about* when Panic! formed and the adjective!character thing was already going strong, pretty sure it predates them.

It’s a way of referring to particular variations of (usually) a character — dark!Will, junkie!Sherlock, et cetera. I have suspected for a while that it originated from some archive system that didn’t accommodate spaces in its tags, so to make common interpretations/versions of the characters searchable, people started jamming the words together with an infix.

(Lately I’ve seen people use the ! notation when the suffix isn’t the full name, but is actually the second part of a common fandom portmanteau. This bothers me a lot but it happens, so it’s worth being aware of.)

"Bang paths" (! is called a "bang"when not used for emphasis) were the first addressing scheme for email, before modern automatic routing was set up. If you wanted to write a mail to the Steve here in Engineering, you just wrote "Steve" in the to: field and the computer sent it to the local account named Steve. But if it was Steve over in the physics department you wrote it to phys!Steve; the computer sent it to the "phys" computer, which sent it in turn to the Steve account. To get Steve in the Art department over at NYU, you wrote NYU!art!Steve- your computer sends it to the NYU gateway computer sends it to the "art" computer sends it to the Steve account. Etc. ("Bang"s were just chosen because they were on the keyboard, not too visually noisy, and not used for a huge lot already).

It became pretty standard jargon, as I understand, to disambiguate when writing to other humans. First phys!Steve vs the Steve right next to you, just like you were taking to the machine, then getting looser (as jargon does) to reference, say, bearded!Steve vs bald!Steve.

So I’m guessing alternate character version tags probably came from that.

100% born of bang paths. fandom has be floating around on the internet for six seconds longer than there has been an internet so early users just used the jargon associated with the medium and since it’s a handy shorthand, we keep it.

A loaf of bread made in the first century AD, which was discovered at Pompeii, preserved for centuries in the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius. The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. (via Ridiculously Interesting)

(sigh) I’ve seen these before, but this one’s particularly beautiful.

I feel like I’m supposed to be marveling over the fact that this is a loaf of bread that’s been preserved for thousands of years, and don’t get me wrong, that’s hella cool.  But honestly, I’m mostly struck by the unexpected news that “bread fraud” was apparently once a serious concern.

Bread Fraud was a huge thing,  Bread was provided to the Roman people by the government - bakers were given grain to make the free bread, but some of them stole the government grain to use in other baked goods and would add various substitutes, like sawdust or even worse things, to the bread instead.  So if people complained that their free bread was not proper bread, the stamp told them exactly whose bakery they ought to burn down.

Bread stamps continued to be used at least until the Medieval period in Europe. Any commercially sold bread had to be stamped with an official seal to identify the baker to show that it complied with all rules and regulations about size, price, and quality. This way, rotten or undersized loaves could be traced back to the baker. Bakers could be pilloried, sent down the streets in a hurdle cart with the offending loaf tied around their neck, fined, or forbidden to engage in baking commercially ever again in that city. There are records of a baker in London being sent on a hurdle cart because he used an iron rod to increase the weight of his loaves, and another who wrapped rotten dough with fresh who was pilloried. Any baker hurdled three times had to move to a new city if they wanted to continue baking.

If you have made bread, you are probably familiar with a molding board. It’s a flat board used to shape the bread. Clever fraudsters came up with a molding board that had a little hole drilled into it that wasn’t easily noticed. A customer would buy his dough by weight, and then the baker would force some of that dough through the hole, so they could sell and underweight loaf and use the stolen dough to bake new loafs to sell. Molding boards ended up being banned in London after nine different bakers were caught doing this. There were also instances of grain sellers withholding grain to create an artificial scarcity drive up the price of that, and things like bread.

Bread, being one of the main things that literally everyone ate in many parts of the world, ended up with a plethora of rules and regulations. Bakers were probably no more likely to commit fraud than anyone else, but there were so many of them, that we ended up with lots and lots of rules and records of people being shifty.

Check out Fabulous Feasts: Medieval Cookery and Ceremony by Madeleine Pelner Cosman for a whole chapter on food laws as they existed in about 1400. Plus the color plates are fantastic.

Holy shit. 

Bread is serious fucking business.

The one thing I think fanfic authors miss, is Rhodey went to MIT with Tony. His major was probably aerospace engineering, since many Air Force officer candidates major in this area. You know what another name for an aerospace…
