i fucking love whenever people are like “how would steve rogers react to the fact that people now curse and talk about sex?”
he grew up as a poor orphan in Brooklyn and joined the fucking army i think he’s got that shit covered
I’m forever perplexed by that sort of thinking.
Well, if we’re going to be technical about it, look at the way he’s portrayed.
Movie’verse - Captain America can barely get the innuendo of “fondue” out without blushing. Or being hit on full-on against his consent by the blonde. Avengers - refuses to give people the equality of religions other than Christianity. Yes, he was in the army, yes, he grew up as in Brooklyn, but all that means is that he probably heard a lot of violence and swear words, but in the movies, he’s shown as being an overly blushy goodboy who probably would do everything he could to wash Fury’s mouth out with soap the first time he said “muthafukka.”
Comic’verse - Yes, he probably has gotten really used to swearing. He’s around Logan all the fucking time. He probably doesn’t bat an eyelash at hearing the words or hearing graphic descriptions of boning because he’s made Logan an Avengers.
And let’s face it, he doesn’t bat an eyelash to putting mutants and aliens into concentration camps, er…”containment centers,” so yeah. In comic’verse, nothing probably fazes him nearly as much as in movie’verse.
Perhaps Steve would be happier if the Avengers all got tattoos on their arms with…ID numbers. Much easier because ID cards can be lost. Why doesn’t he just talk to Magneto about that? Steve can suggest that Erik’s two brats can be the first to be tattooed.
I just wasn’t convinced by this AU until I saw this. Now I’m really intrigued. I don’t suppose someone can send me a list of links for fic and/or art?
Chris Evans really IS Captain America. Guh.
This is one of my favorite scenes in this whole movie. As the person who’s probably the oldest among the people I hang out with, I relate to Steve so much here. And every one of my friends becomes Tony with the eyeroll. Fuckers.
