I am the opposite. I'm Debate Club, not Fight Club. I love taking things like this apart, piece by piece, to see how it ticks, what went wrong, what was right, and mull over all the ways something could be interpreted.
In this case, Bucky and what he endured is presented as if he's also at fault, but the way it's played by Sebastian Stan feels more like he's sticking to Bucky as a victim, even if Bucky himself also feels guilt. (How could he not?) And one could argue that actually the framing of Bucky as perpetrator not victim despite clear evidence to the contrary is *exactly* how he'd be perceived in real life. Humans are fantastic at ignoring facts and following their guts and obsessive need for someone to be guilty. So all those options and all the ways it can go from where it is now are fascinating to me. Because, as I mentioned previously, it's still possible for them to turn this around. Even if the rest of the world sees him as culpable, they could show him as he finally comes to terms with what was done *to him* and that he didn't actually have a choice. Even if his ego wants to believe otherwise.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
