Captain America: The Winnie Soldier

winnie the pooh balloonSo my brain is fried after working all day today and I’m really tired. I meant to write a long thinky post? But that won’t be happening. Because, as I said, I am tired. And I have the attention span of a flea right now, anyway.

So I’m going to tell you about a weird little idea that has been bouncing around my brain as of late, because I think about a lot of weird little things and they amuse me very very much.

During these past few weeks I’ve been listening to the film score of Captain America: The Winter Soldier as I write, do schoolwork, et cetera. It’s composed by Henry Jackman and it is AWESOME – along with Thor, it’s my favorite score from the Marvel movies so far. I’m particularly delighted by his themes for Captain America and the Winter Soldier himself.

He wrote a score for one of the Winnie-the-Pooh movies. And for some reason I think this is like the most hilarious thing? Because The Winter Soldier has a rather dark, moody, chilling score and Winnie-the-Pooh is, well, cheery and bouncy and happy-go-lucky and I just can’t reconcile the two in my mind. They’re so different.

And it’s entirely possible that this will amuse no one but me – because, like I said, I’m tired and everything seems funny right now, but imagine the Winnie Soldier? ASSASSIN!POOH WEARING THE CREEPY MASK AND GOGGLES. Pooh with a sniper rifle. Pooh as a villain.


It would amuse me immensely. I’d draw it myself, but I have no drawing skills whatsoever – in fact, just the other day Cait @ Paper Fury and I were talking about all the fan art we’d draw… if only we could draw.

Two things should happen: Someone should draw angsty Pooh as the Winter Winnie Soldier fighting Captain America because ridiculously silly ideas are always the best, and I should go to bed and get some sleep because my mind gets really weird and slaphappy when I’m tired.

And that is all I have to say to you today. Goodnight!

    When you were describing assassin!Pooh I was thinking, “I want to draw this,” and then I realized that the literal next sentence was SOMEONE DRAW THIS.
