It's the weekend! Which means it's the perfect time for a challenge! Last weekend we all got to fangirl (and fanboy) about our Marvel crush, so this weekend we're gonna do something even more fun! Your challenge, should you choose to accept it: Write an open letter to your favorite character. If you're like me and have more than one, you either have to choose (I'm sorry), or you've gotta do one for all of them. It's basically a win-win situation.
For this challenge I'm tagging @AimeeH @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @DanRodriguez @buddyesd @Marichel @tardisdragon7 @caitlind9898 @VixenViVi @JeanPaulGaleano @BPF1916 @jcl4rks0n and @loftonc16 but anyone should feel free to write their own if they're feeling inspired! Remember to tag me so I can add your card to the challenge collection ^_^
Are you ready? Here's mine:
Aka James Buchanan Barnes.
You have been so brave. You went through hell and came out the other side. It's over buddy, you're here now (dear Marvel: IT HAD BETTER BE OVER). There's stuff I think you'll probably like about the future. Hair ties are great. You can read books on your phone now, which is really cool because you can also take your phone with you wherever you go. I am sorry about the Dodgers, but you might like LA.
I hope you're okay. I know it's probably really weird, but sometimes it feels like if you can get tossed around and have your brain all scrambled and come out the other side, then maybe I can too. That's kind of a selfish reason, but I think I'd be happy even if you were okay and I never was. It's more about hoping, I think.
You're a real hero, Buck. I know it doesn't seem like it, and some people don't get it, but you really are. Because despite everything awful that happened to you, despite everything you'd been told, you decided to do the right thing. It was so hard it should have been impossible, and you did it anyway. And then you kept going. Giving up is the easy thing to do. There's no shame in giving up when you've have enough. But deciding to keep on going, after everything you've been through... you're my hero Bucky.
I hope you remember. Not just Steve, although I think that would make you happy. I hope you remember what it feels like to be snuggled up in bed in the winter. What a really good cup of coffee tastes like. How awesome naps are. What it feels like to have your sides hurt because you've been laughing so hard.
And if you can't remember any of that, I bet Steve is gonna want to help you remember.
Till the end of the line, pal.
PS- In the future, everything is pumpkin spice and you should treat yourself to some.
