It’s Not What You Think (Bucky Barnes x reader) Part 2
A/N: Hi friends! This part was originally going to be super long but I cut it in half so it seems a bit short but the next part will be up in the next two (maybe sooner?) days! I hope you all enjoy!! Feedback is greatly appreciated :)
Prompt: Bucky finds out the reader’s boyfriend has become physically and emotionally abusive.
You were slowly stirred out of sleep from a soft voice echoing throughout the room. Slightly opening your one eye that was not mushed into your soft pillow, you glanced about the room; your room. In a split second of fear you thought it was your room back at the apartment. And that maybe yesterday never happened. But when your eyes readjusted you realized it was your room at the Avengers Tower.
To prop yourself up, you moved your arm from underneath you so your elbow held your weight and you yawned, looking about the room once again. Your room was small, yet spacious. The bed was tucked away in the corner with a TV, a full bathroom and a small living area where a couch and a coffee table sat. When your eyes reached the small living area you say blankets and pillows piled high on the floor and Bucky sitting on the couch.
Your heart fell when you realized the room was practically empty. The closet didn’t hold any of your clothes and the shelf that used to hold all your favorite dvds was empty. Dust was starting to settle where all your pictures and frames used to sit and there was little to no decoration on the walls. It almost felt like it was a hotel room; because all of your things were with him.
As promised here is a basic tesseract tutorial :) (kimono tutorial still in the works)
What you will need:
3.5 inch photo cube ($4 micheals)
1 bottle Frost etch effect paint ($5 somthing i think but i get a lot of use out of one bottle I used martha stewert brand)
1 bottle Stained glass paint color aqua ($2.99 I used gallery glass brand)
Plastic wrap $1
Napkin or paper towel
1 Floral light (I got a pack of 8 for $16 at joanns, used a cupon, mine have seperate rainbow colors, have mixed color settings, and a cycle mode that moves through all the colors for raver ‘party cube’ mode :) I personally use the setting that has green and blue mixed I find it works best with the paint color. You can find and use plain blue floral lights as well)
Flicker candles *optional* (I use 2 flicker candles one blue and one yellow to add movment to the light inside for a more etherial look, the floral light is pretty powerful and drowns out the yellow coloring. The floral light is more than enough to light up the cube if you do not want to mess with the candles)
*to make it ‘float’ you need*
2 ID badge zip line clips (sorry don’t know the technical term for these) you can buy them at an office supply store, my fancy ones were $6.99 each, or you can get simple ones online for about $3 each)
2 armbands of some kind (I used cuffs from another cosplay)
Paint the inside of the cube with the glass paint. This step takes the longest cuz you have to do one side at a time (luckily there are two halves so you can paint them simultaneously) feel free to make swirls in the paint as you go, just make sure its all covered.
Use needel to pop the air bubbles in your glass paint before it dries, this with keep everything nice and smooth. Use the napkin to wipe off the tip of the needel of paint build up.
Once cube is compleatly dry paint the inside of the cube with the frost paint (yes OVER the glass paint, it’ll look awesome trust me) this step goes pretty fast cuz you can paint the whole cube at once and this paint dries faster
Once cube is dry make a little nest of plastic wrap in one half of the cube, put in light, cover with more plastic wrap, close cube
If you do use the flicker candles I do a layer of plastic wrap over the floral light place the candles THEN a layer of plastic wrap. This keeps the candles from being pressed against the sides and their shadows from being really obvious
*to make it ‘float’*
On one half of the cube drill super tiny holes in the center of opposite sides. I did this by hand with a pointy ‘bead reamer’ file, I would recomend a dremel if you have one.
Clip the ends off the ‘badge holder’ CAREFULLY make sure you have a good hold on that line cuz if it zips back up into the casing, well it is possible to retreive it but its more trouble than its worth o_O
Then feed the end of the line through the hole in the cube and tie it off on the inside
Repeate for other side
Clip badge ID holder to armbands,as far as I know all these badge holders come with a clip of some sort
To wear, I place my cuffs about halfway up my forarms to hide them under my long sleeves and run the lines down the backs of my hands so the cube floats between my palms,
I have yet to find badge IDs with clear lines. If and when I figure out how to replace the existing line with a clear fishing line I will let you know. If you want to try on your own, best of luck :)
And thats it! I hope this was clear enough. Sorry for lack of step by step photos got a little swamped with work, but if you have any questions please ask, I will clarify as best I can.
I must thank the absolute wonderful thecupcakemechanic for thinking of this idea :) This is the WWII compass (yes, the screen accurate one from the movie) with the photo of Peggy inside. thecupcakemechanic thought it would be amazing if I gave my boyfriend this compass to him with my photo as Peggy instead. So after a bit of searching and getting the compass, she set up her camera equipment and took the photo. After using a template she made to have it look screen accurate, we placed the photo inside. This is for you, mrdivinevengeance :) I love you! ❤️
Robert honey im pretty sure if you did youd try to call the suit to knowing it wouldnt work you’d probably sneak on set and steal a suit and try and wear it around lol. He probably has a closet of stolen props from the films hidden in his house somewhere.
Avengers, prepare to assemble. The same also goes for fans of the blockbuster films. In 2018, Marvel Studios will unveil Avengers: Infinity War nearly a decade after its cinematic universe launched with Iron Man. Pre-Production has been revving up for the film as directors Joe and Anthony Russo have been teasing fans with updates. And, now, it seems like the production start date for Avengers: Infinity War has been revealed as well.
Thanks to the folks at Omega Underground, fans know that the blockbuster will being production on January 23, 2017. The site is also reporting that Avengers: Infinity War will be shooting out of its homestay in Atlanta, GA. Production details signal that the movie will also film in London, England for an unknown period of time.
If you have kept up with Marvel Studios and its production juggling, then you may be wondering how the company plans to tackle both Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther at the same time. The latter film will kick-off production at the Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Atlanta on January 15, 2017. The two projects will be in production concurrently, so fans are already wondering how King T’Challa will fit into Avengers: Infinity War. The hero, who is played by Chadwick Boseman, will clearly be around if the Russo Brothers need him to drop in a scene or three.
For now, fans can only wait and wonder what all is going on behind the scenes with Avengers: Infinity War. Earlier this summer, the directors teased fans about the project when they shared a photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for the project. The actor plays Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the upcoming ensemble flick will focus on the Mad Titan’s quest for the Infinity Stones.
The Russo Brothers had also given fans vague updates about possible filming locations and props for Avengers: Infinity War. Earlier in the week, the duo shared a video of an unknown prop being made for the film using a 3D printing process called stereolithography. Prior to that, the brothers shared a picture on Twitter of what could be filming locations for the blockbuster. One image depicted a rather trippy, winding staircase that immediately had fans thinking about Doctor Strange. So far, no word has been given on how these updates will fit into the film’s production schedule, but more details will arise once filming kicks off next year.
Doctor Strange is in theaters now, and next up for Marvel is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2on May 5, 2017. Spider-Man: Homecoming lands on July 7, 2017, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated for July 6, 2018, followed by Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019.
Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.
Description: Reader is hurt in a fight, and she is taken into S.H.I.E.L.D for her injuries, and ends up being there longer than expected, gaining new friends and falling for a certain speedster.
Warnings: Swearing, Violence.
“Cap, they took Wanda!” Pietro yells.
“Shelby works for Rampage.” You inform him.
He processes the thought for a moment. “You two. Go, check the building, see if they left yet. I’ll alert the rest of our team. Get your earpieces on ASAP as well.” You and Pietro nod, dashing into separate rooms and securing your earpieces. You catch sight of him sprinting down the hallway past your door. You quickly do the same. You both swerve into an elevator, where the two of you stand for an awkward twelve seconds of silence before the doors reopen, and you take off in opposite directions. Pietro checks the West section of the ground floor, while you check the East section. All appears calm, you see only a few receptionists and a couple of guards.
“Nothing.” You speak into your earpiece.
“Their van is no longer outside.” Pietro says, presumably standing in front of the large window in the West section.
“Cap, are you on?” You ask.
“Yeah. Vision, Widow and Hawkeye have been notified. Nat says she can dig up files on Rampage we’ve collected and try to piece together where they’ve taken her but for now there isn’t much we can do.” He answered you.
You sigh, staring at the ground for a moment. You decide that moping won’t help anyone, and the best you can do right now is console Pietro. You head to his side of the floor, seeing him looking at you. He looked pale, and his fists were clenched. He doesn’t say anything, and neither do you. Instead, you get closer, wrapping him in a tight hug.
“How did you find out?” He asks in a whisper.
“Shelby wanted to talk to me. She asked if I would join Rampage, and I refused. She wanted to take me. I told her that would never happen. Then she said she had that covered, and they were taking Wanda instead.” You say. He pulled away, and you couldn’t seem to make out his emotions. He hadn’t cried, but he looked hurt. Although at the same time, he held another emotion inside, one that you could not decipher.
“I want to kill all of them. By myself.” Pietro stared at you, his face unchanged.
“Who, Pietro?” You put a warm hand on his arm.
“Rampage. I want each of their men to lie on the floor, their blood pooling around them.”
This triggered a thought in your mind.“Shelby!” Pietro looked confused. “Someone head to conference room C. I knocked Shelby out before I left. We can interrogate her.” You talk to the team.
“On it.” Clint said.
Shelby wore the same pair of brick-cuffs you wore when you first arrived, and she sat at the table of the conference room you had both conversed in. It was decided that you and Pietro would run the interrogation, while Vision and Clint stood guard, and Nat and Steve were off collecting info on Rampage.
“Alright Agent Hale. Your organization just managed to kidnap an Avenger. I give you props, but you definitely did not think this all the way through, because, you see, now, you’re in a room with four fucking pissed off Avengers.” You growl at her, getting close to her face. “Tell me where the hell they are taking Wanda!” You pound your fists against the table, making her jump.
“I would never give up that easy, Blue Jay. It’s gonna take a little more than that.” Shelby stared holes in your eyes.
“Agent Hale, today you met a lot of our staff including Pietro Maximoff, brother to Wanda Maximoff. Maybe you’ll respond better to him, hmm?” You suggest.
Pietro steps forward, taking a seat across from her. Shelby eyes him intensely. He doesn’t say much for a while, he just studies her face.
“Is this all you’ve got? Letting a hot guy stare me down, because this isn’t that bad, I mean, I guess I could say he should take me to dinner first but otherwise, not too shabby.” She shrugs.
Clint chuckles from his spot near the door. “Someone’s looking to be killed.” He muttered.
“I’m sorry Mr.Barton, should I be scared by his, sexy gaze, or his piercing cheek bones?” Shelby said in a calm tone.
“That’s my boyfriend.” You interject.
She looks up at you. “Oh, I um-”
“I do not take pleasure in looking at you. I study you, looking for weaknesses. Searching for ways I could kill you. So far I have over a thousand. Would you like to see one?” Pietro says. Shelby sits in silence. “Wanda and I, we were very close. Lost our parents young, so we look out for each other. You took her from me. You took Wanda away.” His words were quiet.
“Look, kid. I’m not really up to hear your sob story, so maybe it would just be quicker if we had Blue Jay cut back in and take your place.” She yawned, unfazed.
“You took Wanda.” He repeats, only whispering. “Tell me where you took her you bitch!” Pietro lunged at her, and she let out a yelp as she hit the carpeted floor. Pietro sat on top of her, his hands clutching her throat.
“I-I don’t know!” She struggled to get out.
“Pietro stop choking her!” You yell.
“No! Tell me where she has gone!” He looked beyond angry.
“TELL ME!” He shook her aggressively.
“Newton Grand! A friend of- someone- low in- Rampage. He has a facility! I don’t- know- where.” Pietro finally let go of her, and she gasped for air. Clint and Vision dragged him away from her before he do any further harm. You help her to stand, then sucker-punching her straight in the gut. She gives out an ‘oof’ clutching her stomach as she fell to the ground again. You help her up again, trading with Vision and Clint, giving them Shelby, and retrieving Pietro. The two of you stick around, as they take her somewhere to be held.
As his eyes remain fixated on the floor, he looked broken. “Do you know what she would say if she saw that?” He finally brought his glance to your face. “She would explode at me. She would be so mad, disappointed probably, but I don’t care. It would not matter how much she yelled at me. All I care about is that she is safe. And I would… I’d…” His voice broke. A tear went down his cheek. “I would kill for Wanda.” He whispered. You approach him, wiping his tear with your thumb.
“Listen to me, okay? We’re gonna find her. There’s no scenario where we don’t. There is no alternate universe or dimension where the bad guys win. It’s only fate that we beat them.” You hold his face in your hands. His cheeks were flushed, but no more tears fell. “Now come on. We’ll go see what Natasha has on those disgusting rats.”
Natasha had dug up some info of her own, but the most useful resource proved to be Newton Grand. And the only way you would be able to locate Wanda would be through him directly.
“So what does that mean for us?” You ask her.
“It means it’s time to go undercover. Grand is scheduled to appear at a ball in two days for some sort of celebration on one of his new projects. Apparently the guy is pretty rich, and he runs a tech company that designs ‘smart’ furniture for easier living. I’d like for you to go in.” She answered.
Undercover hype !! Wait to see how it happens :D Btw I’ve said it before but just in case you missed it, I post every day accept Sunday, so prepare for part 17 on Monday!
