Captain America Deleted Scene: Bucky at War
#hey ho lemme whisper at you a thing #bucky did not want to go to war #steve did #bucky realized that steve needed him at home more than the world needed him at war #but the world never sees things that way #so he was drafted #but because steve tried so hard time and again to enlist #he couldn’t tell that scrappy little punk he hadn’t joined up voluntarily because it would crush him #so he lied #and it’s one of those lies he tells steve #because he has to lie to protect him #and he goes overseas because running away isn’t an option because steve would never run with him and would never forgive him for running #even if he’d do it so that steve always had someone to look out for him #and from the minute he steps foot on the battlegrounds #he’s afraid #because steve wanted this and all he can think is how he’s not sure he can survive it #so how could that little pipsqueak who weighed 90lbs soaking wet survive over here #and the deeper he gets #the more he sees #the more he’s afraid he won’t make it home #and he never found someone to look after steve #and who’s going to take care of him now? #the cocky kid from brooklyn can kick a bully’s ass for picking on the little guy no problem #but how do you kick the ass of an unstoppable force? #the closer and closer he gets to the thick of things #the more he worries #because steve is going to be alone in the world #and he made a promise #he promised him ‘til the end of the line’ but their lines were supposed to end together #not like this #and when he’s captured with the 107th bucky’s first thought and last lucid thoughts are for steve #and he finds himself praying to a god he stopped believing in a long time ago and lost even more faith in when he got to the war #praying that if he’d done any good in his life that it be enough to ask one favour #that god send someone to look after steve when he’s gone #becuse he’s not going home and the punk needs someone to watch over him

Oberyn Nymeros Martell, Tyrion muttered under his breath as he fell in beside the man. The Red Viper of Dorne. And what in the seven hells am I supposed to do with him? He knew the man only by reputation, to be sure… but the reputation was fearsome. When he was no more than sixteen, Prince Oberyn had been found abed with the paramour of old Lord Yronwood, a huge man of fierce repute and short temper. A duel ensued, though in view of the prince’s youth and high birth, it was only to first blood. Both men took cuts, and honor was satisfied. Yet Prince Oberyn soon recovered, while Lord Yronwood’s wounds festered and killed him. Afterward men whispered that Oberyn had fought with a poisoned sword, and ever thereafter friends and foes alike called him the Red Viper.

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
