captain america stuff!  (theoretically. i didn’t have any references with me so please forgive weird faces.)
i have this AU idea (because this is me so of course it’s AU). basically:
(do i even need to say? HERE BE SPOILERS.)
what if:  when captain america was found in the ice, it was HYDRA moles who got their hands on him and the entire thing was kept hush-hush to the world.  they basically tried to do to him what they did to Bucky Barnes:  brainwash and reprogram him.  they think they succeed and start to send him on missions, but even though he always does what they ask him to, he always ends up wandering, too.  marveling at the world and feeling things, because no matter what HYDRA does they can’t destroy that part of him.
some genius in HYDRA decides to send him on a mission with the winter soldier (to keep him on task because the winter soldier is indeed the perfect soldier — also HYDRA takes perverse pleasure in reuniting Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes like that).  even though neither of them can remember themselves or each other, they start to pull at each other and things (or the very beginning of things, at least) start to fall into place — and they sort of realize what’s been (is being) done to them by HYDRA.
so they don’t go back.  they go on the run.  they don’t remember their names, so they go by Beta and Rho because that was HYDRA’s code for them, and because they are both fucking badass HYDRA can’t catch them again.
along the way they help fix each other.  they don’t remember who they were (only pieces here and there), but they find out who they are.
and things are epic and kinda really gay and they start getting back at HYDRA and become heroes and shit.
wooh, word barf, there you have it.

my god, i actually have something to post.  not a very good something but something nonetheless.
anyway, so i spent a week with a really horrible throat infection which meant i couldn’t eat any solid foods (and even liquid ones hurt) and then i sold my soul to the devil and took antibiotics and basically got better within the day.  in celebration (of my hypocrisy, i guess) and also in celebration of tax day (more appropriate), i went to see captain america 2.  which was fabulous. and i have lots of feels.  hopefully i will be back in an art mood and posting more frequently.  it might all be captain america stuff because i suck like that but whatever.  at least it will be art.

so the quote is actually “through the valley of the shadow of death”, yes.  i wrote it down wrong.  one of those things you hear throughout your life but when asked to spontaneously recall it on your own, it slips away.  =\

thank you so much!!!!  aah, i know everyone always wants the kind of hair that they don’t have, but curly hair is definitely my wish.  wear your locks proudly!  (if you want?  or chop them off or straighten them or whatever, if it makes you happy!)

apollo and alexander.  i give flippant (and somewhat inaccurate) nicknames to every story idea i have, ranging from “drag queen superhero” (axiom) to “lesbian dragons” (aventine), and aurora’s nickname is “gay porn with aliens and gender identity issues.”
