Anonymous said: what i find most unsettling about that wiki timeline is that the battle of new york is also the anniversary of steve's crash
Steve Rogers’ whole time line is extremely upsetting. Everything about it to me. And you can’t let yourself think about it too long or you end up weeping into a thing of ice cream while lying the floor. Because he’s lost everything, everyone, has to deal with details of his life being pop culture references, like walking through the park and hearing some teenager say, “Oh, man, I’d storm a Hydra base single handedly for this guy,” while their arm is slung around their buddy’s shoulders, like people referencing Red Skull and laughing about it, like Steve Rogers is nothing but a folk tale that maybe never even existed in the first place. Tony cracking jokes about Steve being a dinosaur but he isn’t even thirty yet. I just.
It’s been seventy years for the world. They’ve moved on. But for Steve, it hasn’t even been a month.
Just don’t think about Steve Rogers’ timeline. Don’t do it.
