Warnings: angst!, a tiny bit of violence, swear words, alcohol
Summary: Being Bucky’s best friend (after Steve of course) gets a lot of perks - but being in love with him WHILE being his best friend means that your adoration must be kept a secret. That also means you have to silently endure every single encounter with women he has whether he tells you or you see it for yourself.
A/N: So this one shot is based on the Amy Shark song “Adore You” (she speaks to me on so many levels!) and I just really wanted a Bucky fic for it because he’d be absolutely clueless to someone adoring him like this…I also kind of skipped over the “oh look at him I’m in love with him” fluffy stuff and I just focused on the couple of days leading up to the point reader can’t take it anymore. I like the angst - it fuels me *evil laugh*
Y/F/I = Your First Initial
I’m just gonna stand with my bag hanging off my left arm
I’m just gonna walk home kicking stones at parked cars
But I had a great night ‘cause you kept rubbing against my arm
I’m just gonna stand with my bag hanging off my left arm
You hugged Wanda and Nat, giving small waves to the boys, before turning to Bucky.
“Hey B, I’m going to head back to the tower. The mission took a bigger toll on me than I thought.” You made a show of rubbing your neck, hoping the sadness in your eyes would be mistaken for exhaustion.
Bucky turned away from the young, curvy brunette tucked under his arm, his smile fading as his eyes scanned over you with concern. He didn’t move away from her, nor did you move any closer, instead you gripped the strap of your bag hard, until your knuckles were white, in an effort to ignore the pain radiating through your chest.
“Are you sure? Did you want me to come with you?”
You gave serious thought to saying yes, knowing he’d probably give the woman a kiss and get her phone number before following you out of the bar, talking your ear off about how she was this and that. All the while, you would be fighting the anger and nausea bubbling up your throat, fighting back the urge to scream at him to shut up about her and every other woman, just fighting to keep your face neutral as you listened to the love of your life pine after any and every other woman but you.
RFA reacting to mc who is just stunning. Like she's at or above the level of Zen attractiveness. But she is SUPER oblivious to the fact she's beautiful
saeran was kinda scared to contact you at first, watching you from the distance. you were just that pretty, he wasn’t sure if he should mess with someone who looks so unreal
one way or another you end up at the apartment to work under the RFA
as for saeyoung, he’s the second person to discover what you look like. he was completely blown away. he checked your pictures for filters, photoshop, or edits - anything, but quickly came to the conclusion you were a naturally photogenic person
he teases and goads the rest of the RFA mercilessly for knowing what you look like ESPECIALLY zen
zen is so irritated and exasperated with seven’s teasing
he was already interested in the new RFA member as it is, but apparently your looks rival his? this he has to see
begs you over and over for you to send a selfie, a photo, or anything!
but ironically, you were pretty uncomfortable taking pictures and just didn’t see the point in them
this drives zen up the wall, and his interest in you piques by a hundred
when you two actually meet in real life, zen is speechless. you were just - so beautiful
and you didn’t make a big deal out of it or acknowledged it. that only made you seem all the more appealing to zen.
however, he’s super insistent on making you see your own beauty - because he wants you to appreciate it damnit! though he realizes such things in the end, aren’t that important to you
proudly walks you to the RFA charity party and shows you off to everyone. he just adores you on so many levels

Could you do a analysis on heatstrid relationship in this season? They seem to be more close now and I ship them so much. ps: your blog is amazing
First, a preface: Astrid and Heather are the relationship. Bear in mind, relationship =/= romance, though they’re plenty rife with that for those who want to see it. These are two well-rounded individuals who have come to care about each other and work with each other without questionable, outside forces (i.e. writers deciding someone needs a reciprocated love interest or the like).
Heather’s goal has always been one thing: Family. Years ago, she wanted to save her family and would do anything to manage it–stepping on toes, lying to faces, burning bridges–if it meant their safety. Astrid saw through her first layer of deception, she was astute like that, and despite the minor threat it posed to her plan, Heather pressed on the mind games. Almost like she was pleased Astrid could level out with her. But when everything came crashing down around her, Astrid was the one to put herself on the line to help her. After their unpleasant beginning. After the insults and scrabbles. (It wasn’t the first time Astrid has shown this virtue either)
Heather saw such character in Astrid, an almost fairy-tale sort of honor that, I believe, this was the moment when her small circle of loyalty expanded to include Astrid.
Then they run into Heather years later and Astrid finds Heather on her level. Blades and battle and that fun, fiery energy still blazing between them. (Though, while Astrid sees her growth–while Astrid understands the evolution Heather went through in the wake of tragedy–Hiccup sees the loss and mourns the girl she used to be).
They’re both so adorably excited by each other. Here is another person who clicks on so many levels–someone they rarely get to see. It’s like there aren’t enough hours in the day for them and they know their respective life choices will force them apart sooner or later so they might as well catch up and enjoy until the next time.
And Astrid seems to know there will be a next time just as she knows Heather will leave again. Hiccup can beg and needle and offer a place for Heather amongst them until his voice dies, but Astrid doesn’t need to be told no twice on this. She gets it.
Heather has a vice for vengeance. She has a penchant for layers and lies as a first defensive mechanism. Astrid is more tempered by the likes of Hiccup, she’s more clean-cut and confrontational than deceptive. But despite these differences Astrid understands. She understands that there’s something unsettled inside of Heather that would never allow her to feel safe and quiet on the Edge. She knows that Heather needs to do this for herself, and she wants to protect Heather, she wants to help her however she can, make her as safe as she can, but she understands that her meddling has a limit.
And Heather knows Astrid understands.
That’s why she trusted Astrid immediately with her plan to smoke out Viggo. Heather trusts Astrid above anyone else in that group. She appreciates the Riders. She’s likely forever an ally of them and she loves Hiccup in her own way as well, but nothing trumps her relationship to Astrid. Astrid is on par with her in ways no one else is–physically and intuitively. Despite their differences in values, in tactics, she and Astrid both understand acts of necessity, and sacrifices, and the very notion of an End Game. They both accept the ins and outs of war without idealism getting in the way.
So Heather knows Astrid is her Girl. Astrid is the one to correspond to as she works the Trappers. Heather can see the distress Astrid endures in ‘omitting’ information from Hiccup, she understands it’s hard–especially hard for Astrid, and she regrets what she puts her through–but both girls foresee the same reaction from him. Astrid’s on Heather’s page here, and it’s a testament to how right Heather was to choose her, though there likely hadn’t been much doubt to begin with.
Astrid is, for all intents and purposes, Heather’s best friend. Astrid is a sister. Maybe a crush. But she’s the closest human Heather has in her life outside of whatever relationships she has left.
And that’s probably why they’re my favorite pair in any interpretation: their relationship has nothing to do with the protagonist (Heatcup was the biggest red herring in the history of hilarious red herrings. Real Satanic Panic situation right there) and it has nothing to do with furthering some gimmick or drama. They’ve genuinely, and rather seamlessly for this franchise, come together.
For subject of them as a couple: They’re fantastic. They’re fantastic in that they compliment each other so incredibly well–from their meeting, to their resolution, to their trust in each other, to their joy around each other, to their every interaction…which is both sweet and intense and I’m sure the writers have a field day with that. Also, when you operate under the assumption that no one’s sexuality is determined, their relationship is told as strong than any other romance on in the series. You can chant “Hiccstrid is canon” as much as you want, but it won’t change the fact that its brick-laying is less stable than a sea-sick viking.
Heatstrid was the sort of chemistry that was ‘shown’. Not ‘told’. I’ll always be grateful for that.
Can you imagine how chaotic the corriander household would be once BOTH kids start being able to shift? (and even then they dont have great control over it and shift/half-shift in starts and stops). first smaller things. tripping their parents (and themselves) with unfamiliar tails. Horns catching on doorframes. no-one being able to move around in the little library because siegbert is stuck in dragon form and tryin to read with way-too-large dragon talons.just. Consider.
Ugggggh, I adore lil dragon Kana and Siegbert on so many levels. For all of those reasons. Just… Corrin and Xander taking turns solving the most recent dragon related problem the same way parents negotiate who’s changing the diaper this time. Or Siegbert stubbornly insisting this is fine when he’s got that library book just impaled on his dragon claw bc he’s going to be the king of Nohr after Papa and kings certainly don’t get stuck in their dragon form and need Mama’s help to get out. Or Kana just getting so excited about things that he just spontaneously transforms all the time, and the chef has to send for Xander bc his son is prancing around the kitchen and ruining all their attempts to make the royal family’s favorite cake for tonight’s dessert.
I also have a lot of feelings about lil bby dragon Kanna and Siegbert but it’s hard to tell if that fits in canon… like at all.
It does fit in with my headcanon-y au-ish ‘corriander gets together after the war instead of durning’ post-Conquest route thing though.
okay so the thing about the cursed child (if the plot summaries are true and if they’re not i’ll thank the heavens and take back every bad word) is that…i mean, i’m laughing about it. it’s ridiculous. the whole thing to me has to be an epic joke because if it isn't—well, i don’t know, man, but i’m pretty pissed off? the amount of time and effort i spent trying to write next gen fic over the past few years that was consistent with the universe, with the characters, whilst also trying to make it interesting and not full of cliches?
and, i don’t know, i always kind of figured that any official material would try to demonstrate some of that same sensitivity. the amount of effort i know myself and others put in and…look. i love jack thorne’s work and i’m thrilled about him writing the scorpio races adaptation. i adored glue on so many levels. but i am so, so insulted and disappointed by the cc plot. the whole thing has the general air of an overkeen and self-indulgent 13 year old who thinks only about what would be SUPER COOL and not what actually…makes sense….within the universe….
it’s kind of a kick in the teeth to the time and effort put in by all the fans who’ve poured their hearts into writing next gen fic that fits with the world and the rules jkr defined. and instead of doing the same thing, this “official continuation” just does a backflip over logic and sensitivity and characterisation and ollies out with its middle fingers up
