My heart aches and a drowsy numbness pains my sense

I feel sorry for the supernatural writers sometimes.
they write a female character.
the fans say they hate her.
they write off the character.
and then the fandom calls them misogynistic.

I get where you’re coming from, but I don’t feel bad for them at all on this, and here’s why:

  • Most of the time they kill off female characters within the same episode, so it’s not like fans even have a chance to hate them.
  • Generally, I don’t think it’s the same fans saying they hate the female characters and then calling the writers misogynistic for writing them off. The fandom can be very divided at times.
  • Sometimes the feminist fans may criticize the way the writers handle a character and want improvement, which is not the same as hating or wanting a character written off.
  • The current writers have made condescending comments to fans asking questions about female characters on the show, so at this point I really don’t feel bad for them at all. They’re pretty openly misogynistic.

I don’t mean any of that to come across as rude or argumentative or anything, I just really don’t feel bad for the writers.

Steve Rogers + Drawing

Steve Rogers drawing things is one way of seeing it.

Another is THAT STAB TO HEART AS YOU REALIZE THAT STEVE ROGERS IS BLEEDING INSIDE AND BECAUSE HE WON’T BLEED ON OTHER PEOPLE HE POURS IT OUT ON TO THE PAPER. OR DESTROYS HIS PUNCHING BAGS TO FINE POWDER. 

Seriously, that first gif where the film cannot make it clearer that this is exactly how Steve sees himself at this point of time. All he ever wanted is to serve and do his part — but his nation doesn’t want him, they wanted an army of him. Without that, he’s utterly useless to them, super serum be damned (“All I got is you. You’re not enough”). He’s paraded around and trying not to fake his smiles, he gets mooned at, thrown with tomatoes on stage — but he just sucks it up because he’s not wavering from his objective, that is to help. So if helping means being a dancing monkey (“Bond sales take a ten percent bump in every state I visit”), then so be it. And hey, it’s a lot better than being a lab rat.

And because I can’t talk about this without talking about Peggy — all it takes is only for one person to keep believing in your worth, to make you have faith in yourself again, and Peggy is that person to Steve here. Dr. Erskine is dead, Bucky is currently at the frontlines and getting tortured, so Peggy is literally the only one left in the world at the moment who’s able to look at Steve right in the eye and tell him, that he’s meant for more than this. And they’re not mere words, Peggy risks everything that she has ever worked her whole life for, just to give him this one chance to prove himself.

You cannot tell me that this is not how it would go 70 years later too — when Steve Rogers took over SHIELD’s PA system and announces to his comrades that they have his deepest faith, to prove themselves and do the right thing despite the cost. The dignity of a choice. Peggy & Steve are so completely synchronized in their principles and worldviews that even if there’s no romance between them, they’re already so inextricably connected and nothing could break that bond.

As for the second gif, it’s a reminder that this is a man who has woken up in a whole new world that has left him behind completely, and he’s resolved to play catch up and embrace it anyway. But he’s allowing himself a moment of heartache here — in the form of a drawing in a corner of a placemat, with buildings squeezing against each other so tightly that you cannot see the sky anymore, compared to the open and freely placed sketches in the first example. It’s the crushing loneliness of knowing that everyone has passed him by in the blink of an eye — and at the same time understanding that he would still need to go out there and soldier on and make peace with his life.
