Lackluster at Best
Pairing: Bucky x Reader
Warnings: Dickhead directors.
A/N- This is for @bradburydiary’s musical writing challenge. My song was Someone like You from Jekyll and Hyde. It’s short it’s shit it’s unedited. Enjoy.
You’d been acting for years. It was your passion. It’d started when you were 6 and joined the theatre club at school. You never felt as at home as you did when you were on stage. So when you got the call to say you had gotten the part as Lucy in a new production of Jekyll and Hyde you were over the moon.
Lucy had been you dream part for years. You obviously already knew all of the words to her songs and all her lines, so for you it was just a matter of putting it onto the stage. That of course was not how it worked out though. The director was being a pain in your arse and changing things and making it extremely difficult for you to work.
You had come home to Bucky moaning about David, the director, on many occasions but this time Bucky could tell there was something else.
“What’s the matter doll? David again?” You gently nodded and explained how he had told you your performance of Someone Like You was ‘lackluster at best’. Bucky knew how much the song meant to you. He had no idea how to comfort you though.
“Well I may not be a hotshot director but I know that your performances are never ‘lackluster’ especially when it’s Lucy and I would be delighted to have my beautiful doll sing it to me right now.” He said with a firm determination in his voice that made you believe every word. So you did. Bucky drifted off to sleep that night listening to you sing the words to him cuddled in his arms.
