okay so i woke up this morning and i couldn’t stop thinking about like a skinny!steve/wintersoldier!bucky fantasy au

where bucky is like the god of seasons and he’s all winter soldiery and the earth is always cold and he just gets lonelier and lonelier and so he goes to a forest spirit and asks for a companion and the forest spirit agrees to give him one but it is also using this opportunity to make bucky see what kind of harm the winter brings to the earth and for him to suffer

so the spirit makes steve’s bones from the branches of a willow tree and takes his hair from wheat and his eyes from forget-me-nots and so on and so forth and then trades a bit of steve’s heart for a bit of bucky’s and so when steve awakens for the first time there is warmth and the weather changes to spring because the piece of steve’s heart is warming bucky up

and they become fast friends and little steve teaches bucky how to smile and laugh and as he becomes more like pre-war!bucky the season changes to summer

and of course he and steve run naked in the fields and dance and yell in the rain and steve braids buck’s hair and they fall head over heels for each other and spend the sweltering days kissing and lazily making love in the grass under shady oak trees

and all the while bucky doesn’t have a clue that he is being punished but then one day steve starts to cough and then he can’t breathe and just as the piece of steve’s heart warmed bucky the piece of bucky’s heart has made steve ill and even more frail and bucky worries constantly and with the worry and sadness comes fall and then the winter

soon enough the spring is back and steve is fine but once again by the end of summer he is sick and as the years pass his illness grows worse and worse until one day bucky goes alone to visit the forest spirit

he tells the spirit that his lover is weak and sick and he asks for steve’s well-being but the spirit tells him that he must make a trade for this to be possible

bucky tells the spirit that he is willing to give anything

the spirit tells him that he will offer endless strength and health to steve in exchange for bucky’s arm and his memories of his love for steve

bucky is ready to give his arm but is horrified at the thought of forgetting so he immediately refuses and returns home

but upon arrival steve is worse and so with much thought he gives steve one last kiss, whispers his love to him, and returns to the forest spirit to accept the offer

the spirit takes his arm and replaces it with cold harsh silver and then takes his memories

bucky wakes up shivering and alone

steve wakes up tall and strong and perfect and he waits for bucky but when he doesn’t come home he searches for bucky in the endless winter

when he finally finds him bucky is startled and doesn’t remember steve

but he remembers those forget-me-not eyes

I don’t know if this has been done yet, but I felt like doing it. 

            In case you need a ride somewhere.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.

Paleontologists find bones from the largest creature to ever walk the Earth

A group of paleontologists in Argentina have discovered the remains of a dinosaur that makes Godzilla look like a bit of a wimp. The researchers found the fossilized bones of what’s believed to be the largest creature to have ever walked the Earth.

Based on the length and circumference of the dinosaur’s femur (thigh bone), the crew calculated the animal weighed 77 metric tons, seven more than the previous largest dinosaur record holder, the Argentinosaurus. The creature would have been roughly 130 feet long and 65 feet tall and is believed to have been a species titanosaur — an enormous herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period (about 100 to 60 million years ago) notable for their small heads, long necks and long tails. The team believes this creature likely lived in the forests of Patagonia between 95 and 100 million years ago, based on the age of the rocks in which its bones were found.
