get a load of this non-standard sidearm configuration - two small-capacity derringer pistols, both strapped at the winter soldier’s (most likely) dominant side:

  • top is a COP .357 Derringer pistol, chambered for four .357 Magnum cartridges - it’s a heavy, huge size for a Derringer, but it’s a solid choice for a defensive weapon, often chosen as a back-up piece for law enforcement because of its powerful cartridge
  • bottom looks to be an Intratec TEC-38 two-shot polymer-framed pistol, housing .38 Special cartridges - guns this size, this small of a capacity, don’t serve much purpose in distance or combat.  they’re meant for close-range (contact-range/point-blank) defensive use, or as a last resort.

given this set-up, these two weapons are the winter soldier’s penultimate and final outs.  the COP .357 can get off four shots, enough to take out four attackers if he’s not already disabled or trapped, but he doesn’t appear to be packing anything to reload and both these weapons are a different caliber than his other sidearms.

that 2-shot pistol, that’s the Winter Soldier’s cyanide capsule.  that’s his way out - one .38 to the hollow of his jaw is his nuclear option, the one that he probably doesn’t even know is there, the one that’s simmering just below the surface of the mission that’s forced into his mind.

the winter soldier doesn’t lose; but if he did, if he could, if he was - 

all assets are disposable.

When in SHIELD, you land the fucking plane on the first try… OR ELSE.

OMG why am I laughing so hard at this?

Further evidence that Tony designed this.

still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg

or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid

or, you know, the Avoxes

because, you know, why show disabled people doing things

Oh god guys. JK Rowling is a genius, and so is this person.

the thing I love about this fandom is that there are 7 books and 8 movies to observe. so every once in a while some blessed soul finds a piece of information that makes all the magic resurface again

Mind. Blown. 

Oh Lord…it’s a metaphor too. It’s symbolic of Neville holding on to his past, the horrors of what happened to his parents, of being a passive vessel for that atrocity. As if the terrible thing kept happening and would never stop happening. 
When he moves forward and becomes part of his own story instead of the story of his past, his strength surges. 



TEAM NEVILLE FOR LIFE

It also shows that if you give a kid the wrong tool, he may be a genius but he’s never going to be able to build something with it.
