(out of character)
⓵ Backtagging: Yes, always, onwards forever.
⓶ Threadhopping: Go for it.
⓷ Fourthwalling: Bucky knows he exists in comic books: the original 1940s Captain America comics exist in the Marvel Universe as propaganda for the war effort. His secret identity and general backstory are also well-known in his universe (including that he was once a KGB assassin)— so I don't mind if you want your character to know this stuff. I'd prefer to stay away just flat-out telling him he's fictional, though.
⓸ Alternate Universes: I play from 6161 continuity but I like threading with canonmates from other universes. I default to not reconginzing most AU canonmates right away but “feeling” a connection nonetheless. I'm also happy to just go with the flow of a thread, if you want to do it another way!
⓹ Offensive subjects: Bucky's canon involves brainwashing, violence, and a more than usual amount of Nazis. Older comics also include period-typical racism & sexism. Please let me know if there's something you don't want to be tagged with.
⓵ Shippy Stuff: I ship Bucky/Natasha, and I'm open to other pairings if there's chemistry. I don't play smut.Player. Alex PMs. this journal /terra Plurk. lightfellows
⓶ Fighting: Character is from a superhero comic, fighting is what he does, feel free to throw the first punch. Major injury and death is something I prefer to discuss beforehand, but feel free to PM me.
⓷ Psychic stuff: Bucky's been severely brain-scrambled in the past, and has also had SHIELD put in mental safeguards from to make his mind harder to mess with. A powerful telepath could likely get through all of that, though, do what you will with all that.
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. — Thomas Paine, 1776( Like Hell )
