Summary: It’s like every single Alpha on the planet won’t rest until they’ve confessed their eternal wish for you to mother their children, and it’s getting old. Luckily, that’s a problem Bucky might be able to fix.
Warnings: sexual harassment, language, a/b/o dynamics
A/N: sooo its finally here! the a/b/o fic nobody asked for. this is my take on the dynamic and it’s kind of different (but not really) to what i’ve seen on here before but hopefully you guys like it! i promise it’ll be a LOT more smutty than my series usually are, but im gonna make yall work for it first. feedback is always appreciated! message me if you wanna be tagged :)
Natasha is waiting in your office when you return to Stark Tower, barely flinching when you slam the door shut and immediately collapse on the small couch against the wall. Nat undrapes her legs off your desk and pads over to you to sit crossed-legged by your head, putting on an exaggerated pout. It’s probably unwise to side-glare an international assassin turned Avenger, but you do it anyway.
You close your eyes and fill up Nat’s expectant silence with, “Why are all Alphas the biggest fucking assholes on the planet?”
“I don’t know,” Nat says with a wistful sigh, “It must be in our DNA.”
there’s little evidence to suggest it went beyond texting and regardless, i read the circumstances as: a) he was isolated completely from the woman he married and clearly was never able to get over being tricked into marrying her as well as living through sherlock’s death all over again at her own hand; and b) he felt isolated completely from sherlock, who appeared to be doing his level best to at once leave john and mary alone to be the Happy Watsons™, and include mary in their cases in a misguided attempt to make shit better for everyone. so. THIS IS NO EXCUSE BUT the minute someone looks at him like he’s Worth Something, it felt like being thrown a life preserver after drowning in a sea of loneliness and insecurity.
and i know, the appropriate thing for john to have done was to tell mary he couldn’t forgive her and it wasn’t going to be ok, but that’s just not who john watson as a person is. he wants to do the Proper Thing™ theoretically, and once he finds himself in situations that he deems inescapably depressing, he flails about wildly for some kind of emotional release associated with danger/excitement rather than face his problems. avoidant john was avoidant, once again. not a Good Guy™ move, but not ooc
