ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.
There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.
Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?
#this goes against what i had previously imagined but makes a lot of sense#in regard to how bucky represents the dark underbelly of warfare and the very human cost of it#that he was tortured; abandoned - saved only by his best friend’s choice to rebel against orders -#and then lost and brainwashed and dehumanized?#all starts with the need for him to become a soldier in the first place#i thought he had enlisted out of a bright dream to be a hero - only to have it crash down around him#but it makes sense that even that - even becoming a soldier - was not his choice#it explains a lot of the too-bright too-sharp too-charming assumed bravado of the first act of cap 1#and feeds into the concept of bucky as an analogue for all the soldiers chewed up and spat out by the military system#leave me here to weep over bucky barnes forever

If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret.
