Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker

Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.

(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)

It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve when she’s bored sometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.

But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.

STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT

In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice.

Can we talk about this though? I mean, I just wrote nearly 4000 words talking about this, but apparently I’m still not done. Their friendship is SO BASED in their particular roles—Bucky’s the tough guy and the protector, Steve’s the little guy with the smart mouth—that Steve’s transformation i almost more than Bucky can handle.

He spends the rest of the movie looking at Steve like his heart is broken because he just cannot figure out his place in this new world where he doesn’t have a squirt of a best friend counting on him to get him out of trouble. And that doesn’t even take the jealousy into account. HIS Steve couldn’t even get into the Army for godssake, and this guy wearing Steve’s name and voice and eyes is a freaking Captain.

Stan does an amazing job of portraying someone who’s hanging on to a friendship he doesn’t understand anymore, even when it makes him unhappy, because he’s trying so hard to understand that this really IS his Steve. The tragedy is that he never quite manages to.
