Captain America memorial from The Art of Captain America: The Winter Soldier:

"The murals were a unique challenge and took a really long time to paint," Marvel’s Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding says. "They’re printed enormous, and I’ve never painted anything that was meant to be printed so large. The one with all the Howling Commandos was printed about 25 feet tall and 60 feet wide, and had all the mannequins in costumes in front of it. The exhibit was real — they built it in a museum in Cleveland." 

Meinerding says the murals also have a strong emotional presence: “The scene is also an introduction to Bucky. In painting the murals, I was trying to get as many moments between Cap and Bucky as possible. So you’ll see Cap running with Bucky next to him or laughing with Bucky to reinforce the relationship they had.”

❝ You kiss me with your mouth wide open like you’re not afraid of swallowing poison. I taste the good and bad in you and want them both. We call this bravery. ❞

❝ The point of fics set in alternate universes are to show that no matter what setting or circumstance, these two people will always find each other. I will find you. Every me loves every you. ❞

Calling somebody else fat won’t make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter. And ruining Regina George’s life definitely didn’t make me any happier. All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you.

letters & poems

For a long time all I wanted for Christmas were books about outdoor survival. I was convinced that the woods were calling me. I camped a lot, I took classes. At 18, I told myself if I don’t live in the woods by myself by the time I’m 25, I have failed.

[…] I swear to God, if you saw me when I am by myself in the woods, I’m a lunatic. I sing, I dance. I do crazy shit.
