get back into gifset motherfucker
Stark, you know that’s a one way trip.
I really almost cried in the theater because of this.
The part that got me is that you can see it in his face, when Steve says he wouldn’t make the sacrifice play - that he knows nothing about the real Tony Stark - he is the hero.
#you know it’s entirely possible that she would still be alive just very very old #i have a headcanon that at some point steve gets fury to look her up and finds out she’s in an old folks home and she’s lonely #she did get married after the war and had kids and grandkids but they don’t really take care of her or stay in touch with her#and in her old age she’s gone back to thinking about him and the war and the romance that never had a chance to happen #and then one day a nice young man in a suit named phil comes and talks to her #and very gently breaks it to her and explains everything and says steve would like to visit #and although she’s completely shocked she manages to say yes #so steve comes over and he brings flowers and chocolate and some old glenn miller records #and after the tears and the talking they finally have their ‘date’
Steve helps hold her up, and they finally have that Dance. it’s Steve’s first. It’s Peggy’s last.
I always honestly believed that Agent Coulson was Peggy’s grandson and that he had been told stories of the marvelous Captain America all of his life but Grandma Peggy never told him her deepest secret, that in her heart of hearts she herself had loved Steve Rogers more than anyone in the world.
I mean, I can’t miss. I’m on a team with super-humans. And one god, in case you’ve forgotten. The training is the only thing that makes me special. And if I’m not special, then none of this is worth it. I gave up a lot for this life. … But I wanted to play with the big boys. And if I miss. It means I’m just another dude with a bow. It means I’ve been fooling myself this whole time.
And that’s why I never miss.
