Okay no but really, I am never going to get over Sam Wilson.
Just — the way we are introduced to him in the Winter Soldier. He’s just met Steve; Steve, who puts up bravado and friendly sarcasm and banter, who’s always okay because he’s Captain America and that’s what everyone needs him to be, especially a soldier, especially a veteran. He’s only just met Steve, but he understands him immediately — not the icon, not the hero, not even the soldier, but the man, this barely-a-kid who’s woken up to find everyone he loves dead and a world he doesn’t recognize and keeps moving because it’s all he knows how to do, follows orders because if he doesn’t he’d collapse and he has no one left to carry him. Sam gets it because he’s been there and he won’t let Steve keep walking wounded, too. Sam barely knows Steve and he risks everything for him; Sam barely knows Steve, but he knows what it’s like, to desperately need someone to trust. Sam barely knows Steve but he’s willing to be that for him — even when everything’s going to hell, even when Steve is a self-destructive wreck, even when following Steve means sympathy for the goddamn devil with a metal arm and a broken mind, and Sam will try to see the human left in the Winter Soldier, too, if that’s what Steve Rogers needs him to do. Because Steve Rogers used to love the man the Winter Soldier was, and Steve Rogers needs someone to love. Sam’s been there, and Sam won’t let Steve go through it alone.
If anyone needs me, I’ll be over here, in this corner, trying not to cry about Sam Wilson.
