I wish Captain America were real.

I wish Captain America were real and that he would go to Ferguson and tell the cops to stand the fuck down, and they would listen.

And things would start to look better (like they do), and then (like happens)--one of them would shoot Cap. Accidentally or on purpose, either way, he's down, and everyone loses their fucking minds.

The news media goes apeshit, even Fox News.

The President has to fucking say something.

Steve wakes up in the hospital, because serum.

Sam shakes his head and is like, "You know, on the one hand I absolutely resent your inadvertent white savior thing going on, on the other hand, way to underline how to not be killed by cops in this country is to be a white dude."

And Cap smiles that too bright smile he has when his heart is fucking breaking. Not because of Sam's words--because one of the things he values most highly and loves most about Sam is how he speaks the truth--but because Sam is right.

Thing is, I meant to write something hopeful. I failed. I've actually been on the verge of tears this evening because I know superheroes can't save the world. Which is a really stupid thing to cry over, and yet.
