why do my warm up sketches always turn into 6 hour projects
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.
No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.
so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….
Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.
There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.
Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.
The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?
Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.
Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.
Literally EVERY TIME I see this post it gets better, I cannot believe. What a thing of beauty.

Do you think Steve will ever forgive himself for the fact that when he was the one falling, Bucky jumped?
HERE’S THE THING though here’s the thing:
When Bucky fell, the mission was not yet complete. Steve had two options- go after Bucky (which would seem impossible in that moment to follow through on, an icy and rocky ravine is not entirely the same as a river), which would potentially result in him failing in his mission - THEIR MISSION - after Zola. Zola, who had tortured Bucky. Zola, who was at fault for so much more of this. A good soldier, regardless of rank, knows how to follow orders, and knows that the mission comes first. And that’s the same for Captains, and Sergeants. Bucky wouldn’t have wanted him to go after him if it would have put Steve in greater danger.
When Steve fell, he had completed his mission. Just barely, and with a lot of help, but he managed to reprogram the third carrier and he’d even got through to Bucky, a little bit. When Steve fell, it was with the knowledge that if he could die, there is nothing else anyone left behind would need to accomplish for him, a peace of mind that Bucky would not have had. But the Winter Soldier? He was definitely not done with his task. Sure, he wasn’t entirely sure he wanted to complete it. But there was at least some of his programming, his conditioning, his mission there in his actions. He didn’t drop when it was a scared and confused Bucky hanging helplessly from the massive hole in the side of the carrier, staring down after his friend(????!?) falling. No, the one who dropped was almost undoubtedly the Winter Soldier. If there’s one thing he should know by now, it’s that no body = no confirmed kill. Dropping Steve into the water wasn’t a confirmed kill, the mission was not complete. And a good soldier knows that the mission comes first.
Here are some Steve Bucky pictures without any editing.
