vverbatim asked: clinging to the high from cap2 while scrolling through your "boyfriend files" tag made me wonder if you were planning on writing about nat/bucky because i feel like it's being made into one of those "everlasting love" clusterfucks that i think you've the cumulative knowledge to clear up, your blog gives me sweet sweet life
That would be the plan! If I ever uh return to the writing of longform essays which I have lately been too lazy for, but I was doing them in publication order so Bucky’d be the last of all. (Matt Murdock is next for those wondering, and I have that plotted in my head as two parts because I am a secret Matt Murdock trashblogger.) I have talked a lot about Bucky on this blog, in fact possibly too much, so some of those archives might be interesting to you, and I have a tag for ship things too.
But I do not think I have the great and terrible power to change tumblr’s shipping thoughts!! I’m happy to share my own opinions and ideas and staple panels and continuity together, but I do that for its own sake and not to be correct. It’s not that I don’t think fandom can get things wrong sometimes or I don’t see interpretations of things I love that I disagree with. I do! And I am not too big to fall into the “people are wrong about my fictional characters on the internet" hole that belongs to every strong-feeling fan. But if I really wrote from a goal of eliminate all badwrong interpretations from the tracked tags I’d never win, and I’d never be able to enjoy myself. So, I definitely hope to do a Boyfriend Files writeup of J. Bucky Barnes one day, but if you expect it to eliminate all clusterfucks you will probably be disappointed.
I hope you’d wind up liking it anyway. Thanks for the nice comments about my blog!!
