NO. NO. I AM TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS OLD AND I AM CRYING BECAUSE I CAN STILL HEAR THE EXACT WAY SHADOW SAYS “PETER” AS HE COMES OUT OF THE FUCKING WOODS DON’T LOOK AT MEEEE
I took a chance with you, Agent Carter, and now America’s golden boy and a lot of other good men are dead. ‘Cause you had a crush.
If anyone asks me what’s the most moving scene in the entire MCU for me, this is it. This is it, without question. Because it’s so brief and matter-of-factly, that even myself didn’t really comprehend it the first time around — the utter gravity and courage that Peggy would have to possess, in order to stand her ground and accept the consequences of her decision to help Steve in the first place.
If Steve had indeed failed in his mission, she would have borne it alone. Howard was responsible too, but only Peggy would be taking the fall for it. Only Peggy would be incriminated and blamed for Steve’s death and all the mess that came with it. She would have been court-martialed, dishonorably discharged, her good standing in the military destroyed forever. But still she risks everything, everything that she has because of her faith in Steve, that when she tells him that he’s meant for more, those aren’t just thin air and pretty words.
And what’s the most often quoted line of the Cap fandom? The dignity of a choice. These are the words that will echo long, long after everything is over. Steve grieves for Bucky, but it’s Peggy who honors him. And in the aftermath of CATWS, nothing is more imperative than Bucky being allowed to find his own way again, to allow him to do right by himself as he chooses to. To just let him know that you won’t be alone. And all that any one of them can really do is our best, and sometimes the best we can do is to start over.
There’s a very Tolkienesque quality to Peggy’s quiet heroism and knightliness, in all the ways she perceives the world and how it anchors and guides the people around her.
It’s the beating heart of this tale.
THERE IT IS AGAIN! THERE IT FUCKING IS! i’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS PHOTO FOR YEARS AND NEVER COULD FIND IT!! THE LAN PARTY WITH THE GUY DUCT-TAPED TO THE CEILING!! BACK IN ANCIENT TIMES WHEN PEOPLE STILL USED CATHODE MONITORS AND WHEN COUNTERSTRIKE WAS THE NEW THING. THIS SHIT IS REAL. THIS IS REAL SHIT. SHIT THAT HAPPENED.

There’s a tendency in comics, and all fiction really, for women in notably male-dominated vocations, ie punching people, to attribute it to male influence. She grew up with four brothers, or her dad wanted a boy, her boyfriend was into it, etc. It’s rare for a female character to just up and do something you usually perceive to do a man’s thing to do.
One reason I like the Carter girls is that Sharon became a SHIELD agent because her aunt and idol was a French Resistance operative. Her aunt. Not her dad, or uncle, or whoever. Her hero and idol is a woman.
Why’d Peggy join the French resistance? Because fuck Nazis, that’s why. She wasn’t involved with a French lover who was killed by the Nazis, her father wasn’t a soldier, she was studying in Paris when the Nazis rolled in, and Peggy Carter would have none of it.
Similarly, in the movie, Steve questions why a beautiful woman would choose to join the Army, but he’s just being a dork and never gets an answer. He never repeats the question and we never do learn, just like we never learn how Falsworth, Dugan or Bucky joined up. Because you don’t need to know, you kind of figure they did it because that’s what they chose to do. It isn’t much of a mystery why the men would take up arms for their country, and the screenwriters don’t treat Peggy any different.
I keep thinking he has at least one pair with a short heel but i don’t have time to watch all the episodes again right now.
