#pre serum steve
the-wakandan-bucky5 hours ago
I just realized that that scene in CA:TFA where Bucky and Steve say goodbye at the Stark Expo is the last time Bucky sees his best friend when he was still little. That goodbye hug they share? That鈥檚 the last time Bucky ever gets to hug Smol!Steve. 馃ズ

okay hear me out, unless you're under the age of 18
so we all know that the serum enhanced their bodies right? specifically Steve. sooo head canon time.
Bucky had like a average size dick. like it was a bit wider, then the average but length was normal.
Steve for some fuckign reason had a really long one. like thin, but really long.
Enter serum.
Bucky grew. like a lot more inches.
meanwhile Steve, steves dick got wider. So serum Steve has now not only a long dick but also a thick one.
Stucky content!!!!
so the first time they fuck again, both of them just need a second, because holy fuck their partner grew. they're like enormous. And yes Steve bottoms. so for a second he like has to brace himself before bucky fully gets inside him.
end of my Ted talk thank you for listening.

Okay so thoughts on dark! Pre serum steve?! 馃槒
Is it weird that I (of all hoes, I know!) struggle with making pre-serum Steeb dark?! 馃ズ
It鈥檚 because my headcanon for dark!Steve is that it鈥檚 either a result of 1) him being in the game for so long and he鈥檚 jaded AF and sick of just self-sacrificing and doing what鈥檚 right so he decides to take what he wants or 2) he鈥檚 brainwashed by Hydra and turned into Captain Hydra.
But pre-serum Steeb? Our sweet baby? He was so good and pure and optimistic. 馃ズ馃槶
However I have seen a few dark fics for him that tend to center around obsession and/or being spurned by women one too many times, and I can totally go with that.
(But also not because fuck those women, pre-serum Steeb is gorgeous 馃槏)

One other thing that鈥檚 really problematic about Steve鈥檚 ending in Avwngers: Endgame, I think, is what it says about dealing with trauma.
I鈥檒l explain. So, along with Bucky clearly being main part of Steve鈥檚 storyline, I also feel like the main theme in Steve鈥檚 story is dealing with and overcoming trauma. The trauma of loss, PTSD, and of having to find his place in the world after coming out of the ice.聽
A few examples of that being made more or less explicit are these:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Here we see Steve struggling to find himself and find people who get what he鈥檚 been through.
In the conversation between Steve and Sam at the VA, Sam is showing Steve that he鈥檚 not alone, that there are people who聽relate. Now, obviously noone else has had the experience of being frozen for 70 years only to wake up in a different time. But at the core, Steve鈥檚 trauma consists of human experiences that are not at all uncommon: Loss, guilt, and trouble finding oneself after coming back from a traumatic experience.聽
Sam does this the first time they meet as well, when he asks Steve if聽鈥渋t鈥檚 his bed that鈥檚 too soft鈥, showing him that he relates to what he鈥檚 going though, and making him aware that what he is experiencing is not an uncommon thing to struggle with as a war veteran.
At the VA, he tells him about loosing his聽鈥渨ingman鈥 and not being able to save him, which almost relates 1:1 to the story of Steve losing Bucky in CA: TFA.
Important note: This not only makes Steve realize that there are people that relate to his trauma, it also Steve鈥檚 trauma relatable to the viewers- Which in my opinion,gives the creators a responsibility to treat that part of his storyline properly and delicately聽- which I actually think that they do to some degree, up until Endgame.
Tumblr media
When Steve visits Peggy, she encourages him to start over, and move forward. What I think she is saying here isn鈥檚 that we shouldn鈥檛 grieve, but rather that in dealing with trauma, we have to accept that聽we can鈥檛 go back.聽The trauma won鈥檛 magically go away, because it has happened. And trying our best to move forward is the best that we can do.
The way I read it,聽 what she is also doing, is that she鈥檚 saying goodbye, and telling him not to linger, but to move on, and live, ensuring him that she has already done so.
This again at it鈥檚 core, is something a lot of us can relate to - grieving for a lost love. And Peggy says it beautifully -聽鈥渢he best we can do is start over鈥 - it won鈥檛 make you happy, expecting that in a couple of years you鈥檒l find some stone that鈥檒l magically take you back in time to that first love that you thought was going to last forever... oh...
Okay, moving on:
So the thing is, that I think Steve does move on, to some extend. In the CA: TWS we see Steve establishing relationships based on deeper connections and shared experiences with both Natasha
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
As well as with Sam (see/read above)聽猬
Another important example is when Steve and Sam first meet and Sam asks how it is for Steve to have woken up in the future.
Tumblr media
In his answer, Steve is focusing on the positive sides to being in the future, which can be read as Steve healthily dealing with his situation, but it also depicts the nuances of trauma.
What I mean by that, relates back to what Peggy was saying:聽鈥淲e can鈥檛 go back鈥. Our trauma won鈥檛 magically dissappear, and then everything is all good. In order to move on, we have to accept that we will be carrying some of that baggage with us.聽
But that doesn鈥檛 mean that we can鈥檛 move on, that it will always be all bad. In this clip, Steve we鈥檙e right at the start of CA: TWS, and this is Steve鈥檚 first time meeting Sam, before knowing that Bucky is alive, and before having made any friends in the future. And what he鈥檚 saying is聽鈥淵eah, I miss my old life, I鈥檝e been through something traumatic, but nothing is black and white, and I can appreciate the things that I have now鈥.
In CA: CW and the later Avengers movies, Steve鈥檚 continues developing new friendships, establishes somewhat of a life, and makes meaningful decisions for himself, based on his own ideals. He gets to grieve for Peggy, and even tries dating. (The whole Steve/Shannon debacle and the way she was treated, is a discussion for a whoole聽鈥榥other day btw).
The fact that Steve gets to have Bucky back is of course already streching it in terms of realistic reprensentation of trauma. But I think that can be allowed, given that avenging Bucky and finding a tie between his old self, somebody who knew him all along, and now, makes up a complete storyline, that, aside from working really well, also tells a beautiful story about friendship.
(I mean the whole聽鈥渙ne soulmate presumably dies, the other wakes up 70 years later, alone and feeling guilty, and it turns out his soulmate is actually alive, having been made a dangerous asset controlled by the enemy?? *cheff kiss* who comes up with that shit - okay, I might be little bit biased in this) :):):)
- Back to the point!
So, to sum up:聽
Steve starts off feeling completely alone because of the unique nature of of his trauma, and realizes that at the core of it, there are people who can actually relate to what he is going through聽(the grief of a lost love, the loss of a friend and the guilt of not being able to save them, struggling with finding yourself as well as your place in the world, in the aftermath of a traumatic experience).
He moves on and begins letting people in, letting himself grieve and establishes new ties that bind him to his surroundings, when he finds out that there is no going back, only forward, and he is in fact not alone with his experience og trauma.
Now, Idk about those of you guys that have had to go through either one of the above or other types of trauma, but to me, this process doesn鈥檛 sound unfamiliar.聽
I think that a lot of the reason why so many of us fell in love with Cap鈥檚 story, with the relationship between Steve and Bucky, Sam and Natasha, and the reason why these relationships are so inspired and well-written and exciting to examine in fandom content, is because this is a beautiful story about overcoming trauma in a nuanced and realistic way, of finding out that you鈥檙e not alone, and of using that knowledge to move forward.聽
When Steve finally gets Bucky back, everything isn鈥檛 back to normal or okay. They both have still lost, both others and parts of themselves, and they still have to process a lot of trauma, and find their place in a new time.聽
But that鈥檚 okay, because overcoming trauma is possible, even if it doesn鈥檛 magically go away. And it will be okay, because they have someone by their side who can get what they鈥檙e going through.聽
And I think a lot of us relate to that. And I also think that that鈥檚 a really important representation of trauma and of friendship and love (be it platonic or otherwise) between men, within a far-reaching franchise such as the MCU.
But oh no, MCU just had to get in a frantic Gay Panic over the fact that people fell for these beautiful dynamics and were inspired to create stories and art examining that, to more explicitely fit the reprensentation that they need, that they threw all of out the window, just to go out of their way in both Infinity War and Endgame, to ensure that there could be interpreted exactly zero Gayness between Steve and Bucky, and not even the smallest possibility of Steve not being 100% straight would be left open,
Leading to an ending that is the exact opposite of a healthy narrative when it comes to dealing with trauma:
- Little guy gets the buff body and the Girl, and then all the bad was gone and everything was perfect -聽
While completely ignoring the fact that he鈥檚 leaving his life and his friends behind, to go to a place where he knows nobody and his best friend is actively being tortured, and Steve will have to not be noticed in the past, probably leading to a very isolated life.
And thus, MCU managed to fuck up when it comes to appreciating their LGBTQ+ audience, representing healthy depictions of coping with trauma, as well as male friendship and non-toxic masculinity.
Only for this short clip, that would leave us all very dissapointed and confused:
Tumblr media
Way to go.聽
Thanks for reading, if you made it this far:)

As I do research, i.e. read Stucky pre-wwii fics, I realize there is a direct correlation between how sick and skinny Steve is described as and how muscular and bulky Bucky is described as. There is a positive correlation indicating that the sicker Steve is, the bigger Bucky is. And I have to say I kind of love that but at a certain point when Steve is practically described as on death's door, Bucky mine as well be built like the Hulk.
Attached is a handy graph of my research drawn with some Mr. Sketch pens.

It鈥檚 the cutest name!!!! And so accurate!!! After the serum, he was obviously Captain Steven Grant Rogers, serious military nazi-killer, star-spangled man with a plan鈩笍
But pre-serum he was just
A smol steeb 馃槶
... do... do you think he ever gets overwhelmed and misses being smol steeb when Bucky could protect him 馃ズ
Ohhh, see I think teenytiny steeb was still all of what you described bigger Steve as... just packed into an itty bitty living space 馃槀 He was a little ball of 鈥渇uck around and find out鈥.
Just smoller 馃ズ
But this question!! The Steve I write for Ignition, even as a little guy he wanted to be the big spoon type. He鈥檇 try his hardest to be the big spoon and wrap Bucky up as best as he could, to protect him. However... after the war calms down, I actually have this whole scene in my head that I hope to be able to write in later chapters. Steve is pretty worn down and feeling like he used to, physically at least, as smol Steeb. He asks to be the little spoon and everything and and and 馃ズ I hope I can find a way to get it in a future chapter because my heart鈥

Do you guys also just keep marking great fics for later but only reading tumblr recs and scrolling through new Ao3 searches that you find yourself in the mood for?
And also like, it鈥檚 so arbitrary what my brain chooses to do with fics I want to save for later.
I鈥檒l be like
鈥渙ohh this looks good, let me just mark that for later鈥 and then 鈥渙oh this looks good too, I just marked 5 fics for later though, so I think I鈥檓 just gonna bookmark this one..鈥 鈥渙h! This author has several works I鈥檇 like to read at some point, so imma just subscribe to that author, and I鈥檒l definitely remember to check them out later.鈥 (*doesn鈥檛 remember to check them out later*).
鈥淥h, a series! The author鈥檚 still adding works to it though, so imma go ahead and subscribe to that as well, along with a few WIP鈥檚鈥 (*doesn鈥檛 ever check fandom email*).
鈥淎nother series! Will I bookmark this one or choose one work from it and mark that for later? Who knows!鈥
And sometimes even 鈥淭his tumblr rec looks interesting, but I wanna get to the bottom of my dash, so I鈥檒l just like it and come back to it鈥 (*doesn鈥檛 come back to it, because my likes list it also full of long debates, relatable posts, fanart i liked, and funny cat videos*)
Me to my brain: c鈥檓on, can we not even be constructive for one minute?! You are literally procrastinating your procrastination activities and making de-stressing time stressing??!!!
