Even though every time it’s ended in tears and dry heaving into the toilet (with Tony, of all people, patting his back), Steve insists on watching every Holocaust movie (Schindler’s List, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) at least once, so he’ll feel a little less guilty about missing the hell that most of Europe endured during WWII.

Do not act as if you were going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you. While you live, while it is in your power, be good.
AN: Hey, greekhoop, do you remember that time we were talking about the secret shame of Angry Thoughts? Okay, good.
Here’s something to possibly keep in mind when writing fic.
Mothers widowed in WWI came to be seen as neurotic, smothering figures:
“As the psychiatrist William A. White warned in 1919, a young widow raising an only son was apt to lavish on him ‘love which is not just a mother’s love… but in addition a love which should have had an adult form of expression.’ Boys raised under such circumstances, he argued, tended to be ‘ill-adapted to withstand the hard knocks of reality.’”
No doubt Sarah and Steve Rogers would take exception to that portrayal.
You know that scene at the end of The Avengers when Steve Rogers rides off into the sunset? Where the hell does he go, and how does he know where he’s going? He was mostly dead (like in The Princess Bride) for decades!
Here’s what we don’t see in the film:
“Wait. Where the fuck am I?”
Only Pepper knows for sure.
Dialogue is from The Office (US) episode “Fun Run” (S4E1).
One of Tony’s many philosophical musings.
Dialogue is from The Office (US) episode “Branch Wars” (S4E6)
As a dual citizen myself, I find this to be an interesting idea…
