Miscellaneous Photographs by Lady Clementina Harwarden, a famous female photographer of the 1860s.
#see it’s shit like this that makes me sad #knowing that all ever bucky wanted to do was protect steve #even when he was small and weak #and even when he was a super soldier #bucky was always there watching out for him #and it hurts to see how terribly he’s been brainwashed so that he loses that protective instinct completely #and then he remembers #and he gets it back again and saves steve from drowning (black-nata)
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.
