Bucky Barnes is a national hero. As iconic in his own way as Captain America, his name is synonymous with loyalty and sacrifice. Mourned nationwide, Sergeant James Barnes was first recipient of the Barnes Cross, a medal awarded posthumously to those who have lost their lives during acts of exceptional valor. First awarded in 1946, the Barnes Cross has had 48 recipients in its history, most recently to 2nd Lieutenant Jack Riley of the 58th Pararescue Squadron.
the thing about people who glorify Snape is that I’m genuinely concerned about their idea of love and feel like people should be aware of the real-life line between romantic and creepy
They should also remember that Snape was the kind of person who kicked someone when he was down. He kept trying to get Lupin fired despite knowing that a teaching position at Hogwarts was probably the best job opportunity that came Lupin’s way in a long time. So the position was cursed and Lupin would have lost the job anyway, but the fact remains that Snape made sure Lupin lost it because he wanted to punish a Marauder. It didn’t matter that it had been years since they’d been students, or that the Marauder he punished wasn’t even one of his tormentors (i.e. James & Sirius) , he just wanted to punish them all. No, Snape was not a good man. He was a creepy and vengeful man who just happened to be a very good double agent.
