"Damnit, Bucky! These are official!"
"Then you’re officially a jerk."
"So, what’s so special about you?"
"Nothing. I’m just a kid from Brooklyn.’”
I thought you were more than just a shield.
#hey so you know where steve would’ve learned french?#the army#the french steve knows is probably 95% swear words#with enough other words/phrases to carry on a conversation or; you know; threaten people
gabe and jacques teaching the other commandos, and possibly falsworth although the other two make fun of him a little for his English-public-school French that’s immaculately grammatically correct but conversationally stilted.
See I always imagined that Peggy started teaching him and Dernier and Gabe found out later and started “helping” and then after he woke up he kept working on his language skills, because that was one of the few things his friends had given him that he could still hang on to.

#the way bucky’s looking at him #sitting there drinking hard liquor with hydra poisons running through his veins; tortured and saved #and he’s sitting there staring at steve like he’s the only thing in the world #death would be kinder
#natasha teaching cap things! #not because cap is naive (ugh) or out of his time #but because cap was always a soldier and natasha never was #because natasha is a spy a hall of mirrors a living regime changer and cap was trained as a regime fighter #aka a soldier #natasha teaching steve things because steve is moving out of the realm of soldierhood as he learns more and more about what america is #and more and more into natasha’s field of influence and skills #as he moves more and more into the sphere of working on different kinds of frontlines #:))))))))))))))))))
I actually loved this moment, because I didn’t see this as Steve being incompetent and completely unaware of what was going on. This, I felt, was Steve being extremely sassy. “It seems to run on some form of electricity,” he says, with a huff of a sigh and a smile. What he means is, “Of fucking course I don’t know what this shit means, I’ve never been exposed to this, are you serious right now” and that is not because he’s stupid or inept. Actually, Steve adapts very, very well and very quickly to new technology, evidenced in the Avengers with the ease and familiarity that he navigates his tablet with, but also in Captain America, where he takes everything Howard gives him (modified, highly advanced Hydra weapons) and uses them to full capacity.
It’s just that Steve’s never seen the inside of a control panel like this, so there’s no way in hell he’d know what to do with it, and he’s pointing that out to Tony with his dry sense of humor. And I think Tony gets it, because he doesn’t get angry or snark back at him; he returns with “Well, you’re not wrong” and a lopsided smile, which I read as his “duh, what was I thinking” moment.
I just have a lot of feelings about Steve and his sass and his dry sense of humor, and now I will crawl away to have feelings elsewhere.
AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
