“Real life was something happening in her peripheral vision.”

why are there so many songs about people being lonely and disaffected in New York City
go hug a skyscraper
windandwater just posted a liveblog of the first Cap movie and mentioned noticing that Steve didn’t have a Brooklyn accent which OPENED THE FLOODGATES for all my Cap and Bucky dialect headcanons;
- Steve not having a Brooklyn accent is pretty understandable. No accent is guaranteed to be noticeable.
- Next, he’s a prideful guy with a lot to prove, so it seems unlikely that he would let himself sound uneducated
- (headcanon Steve struggles with pronouncing vowels correctly. Just imagine what Tony’s face would look like when he realizes that Captain America refuses to say the word ‘coffee’)
- Let’s talk about Bucky’s accent in the second film
- Just for a second
- Sebastian Stan tried really hard and sounded really good, but his accent is anachronistic. It’s too heavy on the Italian influences- no good Irish boy would talk like that in the forties. There are still pockets of Brooklyn where people speak with the older New York English, and older generations still use it, so I don’t think I was the only person to notice this. The best example I can think of for this accent is Captain Gregson from Elementary.
- (Bucky could have also spent alot of time around the immigrant community, due to his work or living situation)
i want a word for the almost-home.
that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.
what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.
give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.
i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.
The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
