hoodiecap said: Cap visits a school assembly and they have him lead the pledge of allegiance but "under God" wasn't added until he went under the ice so he doesn't know that part so he doesn't say it and the next day all the headlines say "CAPTAIN AMERICA FORGETS GOD" and FoxNews freaks out.
oh my god
#YES. YES YES YES. YES#Steve is really fucking confused#Nat explains ‘because communism’#and he’s like ‘oh great#thanks a lot Nat’#and she’s like ‘you’re welcome comrade’#steve rogers (via bluandorange)
additional tags from penguinsparade: #and let’s be real here #Steve grew up dirt poor during the Great Depression#and missed the Cold War #so he probably has what are today considered radical views on communism #i.e. ‘it’s not terrible’ and not synonymous with the antichrist#’a bunch of the people on my block were communists’ he says when Fox News asks for an interview #’they just wanted jobs down in the shipyard so they could eat and not lose a hand trying’ #Steve just rolls his eyes with a smile#every time Nat calls him comrade from then on
steve rogers’ idea of a solid 4th of july birthday extravaganza: he screams “SO LIGHT ‘EM UP” and proceeds to set off about 50 fireworks from stark’s landing pad.
all at once.
and then runs down the stairs, stumbling and laughing while tony shrieks in the background and sam swears loudly and natasha and bucky are half-laughing, half-coughing because of the smoke. clint can be heard yelling “HOLY FUCK” because the explosion is so loud, even without his hearing aid. bruce is nowhere to be found because he saw this coming- why didn’t tony listen to him when he said, “steve’s totally going to mess with those. you know that, right?” and thor is clapping and shouting, “a good show, captain! shall we have another bout?”
the next day rhodey and pepper have to march up to the tower and deliver a letter from the mayor that asks something along the lines of “what the hell was that last night?” and the avengers have to make up some lame excuse that the good ol’ captain didn’t realize the fuses these days were electrical (bullcrap and all the avengers know it) and accidentally set them off all at once. how could anyone yell at captain america, the golden boy of the nation? and they get off scot-free.
tony asks jarvis, “did you get that all on tape?” and of course jarvis says yes. they spend the next hour watching it over and over, laughing until their sides hurt. “holy shit did you see sam’s face?” ”why would you ever think that was a good idea, cap?”
and steve swears that that’s the best birthday he’s had in a long time- and they’re going to do it again next year (no matter what the government says- he’ll just bat his eyelashes at them and play the part of the “star-spangled man with a plan” again and have shield nudge them a bit).
