Mini-Marvels: Captain Hoarder

This is inspired by a prompt in avengerkink.  I had already written a fan fic already but I had to make this pic.

Long ago I posted a prompt requesting a "Steve Rogers annoying the other Avengers with Depression era habits".

I had a grandparent who grew up in a farming family. They ate wild game (as no one could afford to buy meat, plus no grocery stores nearby.) Grandma had a garden, and canned everything. She and her sisters would wash foil and plastic baggies for re-use. I've heard of someone else whose Gpa would dry paper towels for re-use. (I don't remember Gma using paper towels, she only used cloth towels and simply bleached them.) She and my aunts would also 'save' the water from the dish-washing for re-use.

Steve hoarding tons of canned goods sounds just like something one of them might do. Steve probably wouldn't see it as hoarding, he would see it as saving for a 'rainy day'. Plus I'd bet he'd share his cans.

I think I read a fanfic based on that prompt. Steve went to a warehouse store and bought a ton of food. I think he ended up donating the food to a homeless shelter after talking with one of the Avengers.

That's a fan fic I wrote. Here's the link. http://marienomad.livejournal.com/44616.html

Mom didn't grow up in the Depression but she did grow up in a third world country and she saved everything she could.

I can't tell you how close to the truth that is. My mom and I had to clean out my grandmother's house when she had to be moved to an assisted living facility. The amount of food she had put away was insane, but she lived through the Great Depression and never got over it. I'd love to see Steve in a modern day grocery store. He's be stunned.

Oh yeah. Like how many types of bread out there.
