AN: TW for triggering.
Today’s AmCap is pretty heavy. I apologize for that, if you’re reading for the light stuff, but Steve has some heavy stuff to deal with too. It’s probably a good thing he has a diary comic because I don’t think he yet knows that a) it is sometimes appropriate to tell people what’s happening to you or that b) anything that’s happening to him is necessary to talk about. Or: I’m not sure Steve thinks of what he’s doing as repression so much as pure, sensible functionality - I don’t think he is yet aware that “fucked up” is an actual setting that humans have. Especially humans who, as far as they knew about, actually died in a war, but who unfortunately come from a background and style of masculinity that don’t supply abundant tools for putting that through restorative process.
I wish him luck with that. And I’d really like to play him this song (warning: IT IS A VERY SAD SONG). I feel like, when he discovers Bruce Springsteen, he might actually almost cry from relief.
