Sam and the ladies of the Cap team cute hidden moments
(aka hcs I made out of tiny moments in the movies or me over analyzing again)
Sam + Wanda
so, when the golden trio come to the for rescue to Wanda and Vision im during the attack on them, Natasha and Steve look taken back by discovering both of them together, because of the separate teams and all.
Steve for example, looks awkward and taken back, he is also kind of disappointed in Wanda for risking her life like (and sleeping with the enemy) but then he's Steve and he's like "just get in".
then Natasha looks surprised too. she even lectures Wanda about her reckless behavior and she is genuinely surprised they could just slip under her nose. she also doesn't address Vision once.
then there's Sam, he the most neutral person out of the group, he is even familiar with Vision himself, he clings to him for most of their scenes and they're comfortable around each.
now here comes my hc, Sam knew Wanda and Vision were meeting up with each other and kept it a secret too. he probably found out by accident, heard her over the phone, or funny enough ran into them. he only asks Wanda to be careful and in exchange of him keeping her secret, she should always update him on her whereabouts, and maybe that's how they find her all of a sudden.
just imagine them going around and sneaking, Sam sometimes would ask Wanda how is Vision and maybe they have midnight talks about him or something.
Sam + Natasha
when the gang reunite with Rhody and Bruce, there's that awkward little moment where Natasha and Bruce see each other after the whole "bye I'm going to space sweetie" ridiculousness (this ship couldn't be more out of place tbh but yeah)
now here's a reminder, this happened in Avengers : Age of Ultron. where Sam was not present with them, nor was close to Natasha in any way, so he wouldn't reasonably know there was any romance starting. maybe after he joined the Avengers officially, he would learn Bruce basically flew off to the moon and Natasha might have spelled.
but now comes the second hc, which is: Wanda and Nat were hinted at to be close, in deleted scenes and even in canon movies, I feel if she would tell Sam about Bruce, she might as well tell Wanda too, but then there's the scene when Sam says it's awkward and both Vision and Wanda are confused and intrigued to learn more about whatever drama this is.
so, I wanna believe, Sam and Natasha were both sipping beer on a rooftop in a eastern European country and talking about their love lives. Sam would tell her about Reily, and she would tease him about Steve a little. then she would tell him about Bruce and Clint and her issues in picking men. and they would bound over their heart breaks and that would be the sweetest thing ever.

I read the first couple comments on that Guardian review (breaking a rule of mine never to read comments) and man, I am choking on the pretentious atmosphere. These people need some joy in their life. I love the Greek classics, Shakespeare, Russian lit, poetry, playing Mozart on my piano, traveling to London to see plays...but I also fucking love Marvel and think some really powerful storytelling and character development is present in all their films. The snobbery is becoming a disease and quite frankly, they are missing out on some great philosophical discussions like who was right-Cap or Tony? Still discussing that one with friends!
