Falling isn't as scary as it looks. It almost feels like floating in water would, that same sensation of being suspended, but everything around you is moving too. It's stagnant, like time has slowed to a crawl. It's quiet, too. Surreal. It's not scary. Not even the inevitable death waiting below, snapping its jaws at you.
Steve remembers the wind rushing around him as he fell. Remembers the distant screech of metal bending and breaking in ways that metal should never bend and break. He remembers the fiery heat exploding around him, sending debris hurtling in every direction. Most importantly, though, he remembers the wild look on the face of a man he never thought he'd see again. Remembers the way it grew smaller and smaller the further he fell.
The last thing he remembers before he hits the water is wondering if this was how Bucky felt when he fell.
And then he lets the water consume him.
