HAPPY BIRTHDAY » jk rowling and harry james potter (july 31st)
"Why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me."
#sometimes i wonder if bucky suspected that zola had altered him somehow #that in this moment he wasn’t fearing steve turning into an abomination like schmidt #but rather himself #that when he sees this man rip off his face to reveal the monster underneath #it chills him to the core because what if he became that monster #bucky feels factory (tags buckybarness)
