no but seriously
look at Steve’s face after Erskine says “good becomes great, bad becomes worse.”
THAT IS NOT THE FACE OF A MAN THINKING ABOUT ALL HIS GOOD QUALITIES
That is a man taking stock of every single moral deficiency in his character and immediately finding himself wanting.
This right here is why I need more fic of Steve being utterly aware of all his worst qualities. This is why I need more fic of Steve being imperfect. I wanna see him be hyper-critical of shit and I want it to be shit entirely unrelated to Bucky. Wanting Bucky in the sack and not saving Bucky from falling are not the only things Steve can kick himself over okay
