Posting too much today because I love to share: things I notice in fanvids edition.

In Bucky's flashbacks, HYDRA seems to be amputating his arm a couple of inches above the elbow. It's hard to tell because he's looking down at his body, but it's definitely towards that end of his upper arm. When they're dragging him through the snow the fall itself seems to have taken off most of his lower arm somewhere around the elbow joint. A lot of fic I've read written post Winter Soldier and pre Civil War, if it goes into detail at all, seems to assume that the prosthetic is anchored on the remains of his upper arm, including the bone. That would make a lot of sense if you were attaching a metal arm to someone, after all.

After he and Steve fight Tony at the end of Civil War though, Bucky's arm has been ripped off at the shoulder.

I really, really hope that through the years that metal arm put too much stress on his original upper arm and they'd done further surgery to just anchor it at the shoulder or something, knowing that they wouldn't be keeping him around for that much longer anyway. Because otherwise it would seem that Tony may have removed not just most of his prosthetic, but the remaining pieces of his actual arm.

You're welcome for this very cheerful observation. Someone should write a fic where Tony's like "hey I can see how this arm works now OH SHIT THAT'S NOT METAL."

I'm... not sure how I feel about Falcon #1. Apart from my initial reaction to the cover, which was "wow, that red symbol on his uniform really outlines his dick."

idk if anyone cares about spoilers )

The problem with painkillers is you have to take the next dose before the current one wears off but you don't know if you still need them unless you let it wear off and then your mouth hurts because there's a fucking hole in it.

It's been four days since I got the tooth out though so hopefully it will be minimal pain today. I took some ibuprofen in the very early hours like 4am maybe so we'll see what happens, it's only 8.30 now.
