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.

For the Tim Gutterson/TJ Hammond Justified/Political animals crossover fic freezerbraun requested. Sent this in a message before, but thought the masses might like it as well  ;)

More is DEFINITELY coming.  Even if I have to rewatch the entire series (of Political Animals, clearly.)

Tim was in Basic when TJ Hammond was outed by the press.

They caught the poor kid in a public bathroom with some college boy at seventeen.  There were pictures.  It was trashy and awful and there was a rain of bullshit from all over the country on top of this sad-eyed rich-boy.  It made Tim feel bad. 

And it reminded him to be careful.  Bud Hammond was the one who signed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell into law.

The hypocritical motherfucker.

Once, maybe a year later, on a handshake line at a gala event, someone asked TJ what he thought of that, and he’d said, blank-faced, “No comment.”

Tim was in the army when September 11th happened, and they sent him to the shit in Afghanistan after that so he couldn’t really keep up with the Hammond kid anymore.  He lost track of him, lost interest in tabloid bullshit too, and when he got back TJ was mostly out of the limelight.

Now, his mother is President and he’s coming to Lexington to talk to some kids about not doing drugs and Tim is placed on his protection detail.

It’s freaking surreal.

Oh baby, here you go.

TJ wasn’t really into the sobriety talks.

But he’d made a deal with his mother to play it straight and not do the night club promotion anymore.  There was a surprising amount of cash in public speaking if said mother was the President of the United States of America.  

And really, sobriety was the only thing he could speak about at this point, so he was stuck with it if he wanted a thousand dollar paycheck for each engagement with what few—useful—skills he’d acquired in his life.

He liked the kids anyway.  They always came up with some creative questions.  He’d get the odd one about his sexuality, but the issue mostly flew over the heads of the the fifth graders and the middle schoolers he usually talked to.  And, surprisingly, if they did know about it, they were fucking cool about it too.  

TJ thought it was a good generation, this one coming up.  

He liked them a hell of a lot more than the kids he’d gone to school with.  Though, he’d mostly got icy stares rather than verbal or physical vitriol as a teenager, because of his father, and, of course, the secret service agents.

The agents, who were still hanging around, now that Mama was back in the White House.  Along with a bunch of other officers from various government organizations whenever he went anywhere in the South, and sometimes the North too, because of yahoo white supremacy groups and the goddamn Tea Party or whatever. 

He thought he’d be rid of these guys by now.  He’d liked it when Mama was just Secretary of State and he was just a regular guy…whose face most of the free world could recognize.

He puts a smile on it for the kids, though.  He puts a smile on it for Lexington, Kentucky.  He shakes everyone’s hand, he says the easy words about saying no and the harder words about messing up your life, making bad choices, alienating your family and all that shit.  He listens to their polite applause and answers their questions.

But the whole time he’s looking at the blond in the Marshals jacket, positioned at the door at the back of the auditorium.  He’s talking to the kids and he’s looking at this guy and he’s thinking, I’m going to talk to you.

BRILLIANT/BEAUTIFUL/PERFECT

Whyyyy thank you!  :D

The Winter Soldier is introduced as this ghost, as this iconic dreaded assassin, and when you see him fully for the first time in the kitchen it’s terrifying. He does seem like an equal villain to Pierce … and then it’s all. fucking. subverted. and made horrific. that childlike docility in his face in the midst of all that violence, accepting that bit in his mouth, that backhand, it’s all haunting.

 you realize just what this is. making people into living weapons at the cost of their humanity isn’t badass or cool or legendary. it’s a sacrifice. it’s a corruption. it’s a greek fucking tragedy. [x]
