“You’re suicidal…”

Steve’s eyes glowed as he repositioned the way his shield fit along his arm, and widened his stance. Bucky sighed, bringing both hands to his face, before dragging them down his cheeks. His frustration is palpable through the thick tension filling the spacious training room.

A/N: WOOP WOOP I finally managed to get this chapter out.  The last couple of weeks were really stressful for me because school and stuff, but school is done now so YEAH YEAH!! This chapter is not as good as I had hoped but it’s still decent. Get ready for shitty writing and angst galore

Pairing: Bucky x OC

Word Count:1017

Summary: (Taking place in the late 1700s) Elvira Waugh is a member of a special squadron, within SHIELD, mainly consisting of enhanced individuals.  Against her own will, she falls in love with a mysterious man within the initiative: Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes.

Warnings: Angst overload. TOO MANY GODDAMN EMOTIONS. Terrible writing and English.  Blood and gore. Minor character deaths. 1700s Pride and Prejudice-ish vibe.  Sexual tensions. Murder.  More sexual tensions. Brainwashing. Implied torture.  Not being able to control one’s body. Hydra control. Slight emotional abuse from bucky?

OC thoughts are italicized

Okay, I want to talk about something. I think about this a lot; ever since Captain America: Civil War came out. And anytime someone says Bucky is a villain.

This particular scene hits me like a ton of bricks.

This part absolutely rips my heart to shreds. Bucky wanted to get away from everything. He was trying so hard to stay low and try to live in the dark; run away from his life with Hydra. A life he didn’t choose nor want; he was forced. 

Bucky Barnes is not a villain. It hurts me when I look into his eyes in this scene, and I couldn’t imagine him being a villain. All he knew was fighting. Whether he was fighting against someone Hydra ordered the Winter Soldier to, or Tony when he was James Buchanan Barnes. 

All he knows is fighting. All along, he was fighting against the Winter Soldier, fighting against his mind–doing anything he could to stop the Winter Soldier from taking over. 

His eyes are screaming “Help me.” 

“I’m sorry I fell off the train protecting you, help me.” 

“I’m sorry I took the lives of innocent people, help me.” 

“I’m sorry I almost killed my best friend, help me.” 

“I’m sorry I’m coming in between you and your other best friend, help me.” 

“I’m sorry I can’t understand why you think I’m worth it, help me.” 

“I’m sorry.”

“Help me.”

Give me more of a Steve and Bucky who lived through the Depression. Show me two super soldiers sitting together to clip all the coupons they can because they can buy loads of stuff now but they’re still both REALLY stingy about money. Show me both of their apartments looking like episodes from Hoarders. Show me Bucky showing up on Christmas day to Avengers Tower with a whole sack full of oranges for Steve and Steve laughing till he cries while everyone else has no idea what’s going on. GIVE ME A STEVE AND A BUCKY WHO ARE STILL FROM THE ‘30S NO MATTER THE HENLEY SHIRTS AND APPLE STORE VISITS

Steve: At this point I doubt anything could surprise me.

Nick Fury: 10 bucks says you’re wrong.


Steve: Ok now there isn’t anything that could surprise me.

Alexander Pierce *quietly, in the background*: 1 Buck says you’re wrong.
