“What if we didn’t have knee joints?” You said aloud. “Would we just walk like penguins, d’you think?”

Bucky let out an exasperated laugh, giving you a look. “Why would you even think something like that?”

You blinked and pursed your lips. “It was a random thought.”

He shook his head, continuing to polish his gun. “We’re hiding behind a bush, about to snipe a guy who’s killed over thirty people. It’s hardly the time to be thinking about penguins.”

Your feet brushed against the cold kitchen tiles, a shiver trailing through your body as you made your way to the fridge for a late night snack. You grabbed a plate of brownies, showing the fridge close with your elbow before making your way to the television room.

You were surprised to find it empty, smiling to yourself as you relished in the idea of being able to pick a movie for once as you planted yourself on the couch. You placed the plate on the sofa table, bringing a brownie to your mouth as you browsed through the selection available on Netflix until you found something of your liking. Another shiver trailed down your spine, your body being tired and drained of energy from the mission and you reached over to the blanket at and brought it over your legs. Your eyes landed on a grey hoodie, figuring it was Steve’s you contently threw it over your shoulders and enjoyed the warmth and smell of the large garment that covered your figure.

“Fuck” Bucky groans under his breath as you roll your hips backwards, your ass rubbing against his stiff cock. His arms tighten around your waist as he buries his face into your hair, a needy whimper escaping the back of his throat. 

The sinful way you ground your hips against him was driving him wild and what started out as spooning while watching a movie was quickly turning into something else as indicated by the heavy pants coming from the super soldier. 

“Baby…” he breathes, one of his hands coming to rest on top of your hip. You stifle a groan, biting your lip as he pulls your hips tightly against him, pressing his cock against the soft flesh of your ass as he ruts into you. The grip you have on the arm still wrapped around you tightens, nails digging into his forearm as he grabs your breast and squeezes.

Steve sighs, lowering his head and drumming his fingers against the wooden table. “Well I keep saying it because I’m waiting for someone to give me an idea.” Natasha clears her throat and raises her hand, a movement Steve catches out of the corner of his eye. “And no, Natasha. Knocking everyone out with sleeping gas so we can get what we need is not a good idea.”

She’ll Kick Your Ass (Avengers/Steve x Reader)

“Oh shit, Steve is coming! Steve IS COMING!” Pietro shouted as he ran into the common room.

Everyone jumped up in panic, “Where is (Y/N)?!” Clint shouted.

“Someone hide her!” Sam screamed, freaking out.

“We have to find her first to hide her, you bird brain!” Bucky shouted back.

“Okay, that’s it!” Sam took a step towards Bucky, but Wanda stepped between them.

“Children,” She mocked, “We gotta find (Y/N) first.”

“I’ll check her room,” Natasha said and jogged out of the room.“I got the gym,” Sam followed her to the door.

Everyone ran around the tower to find (Y/N) before she could see Steve.

All of that had started a month ago, when the two broke up. They didn’t have an unsolvable problem, actually they were madly in love, but both of them being their stubborn selves, they ended up splitting. They were like ice and fire, so opposite from each other. That didn’t stop them from falling in love though. 

“WHY CAN’T YOU STILL CAN’T UNDERSTAND THAT YOU CAN’T GIVE ME ORDERS, GRANDPA?!” Everyone heard (Y/N) shout somewhere in the hall.

Oh no. They all thought. (Y/N) and Steve fighting was something no one wanted to witness.They all ran to see the two. There was a scene none of them was unfamilier with; both of them screaming at each other.



“Guys, uh-” Tony tried to interrupt the two.


“AND I AM, MR. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?” (Y/N) shouted back with a mock.

“Guys, why don’t we all just chill-” Clint tried to speak, but he was cut off by the two.

“SHUT UP!” They both shouted at the same time before continuing screaming at each other.

Thor tried to step in, but it only got more complicated and messed up. When no one else could stop the fight, Natasha came up with a brilliant idea.

“BUCKY HURT HIS LEG TODAY!” She shouted, all of a sudden they both shut up and Steve gave all his attention to her.

“What? Is he alright? Where is he-” All of a sudden he was just a worried emotional guy.

“Okay (Y/N), why don’t we just go get some air?” Pietro said before picking her up even though she protested and zoomed out.

“Where is Buck-”

“Right here, pal.” Bucky said with a smirk, walking to him.

Steve turned to Bucky, “You seem-”

“Fine?” Bucky mocked.

“He is fine, I made that up to stop the madness.” Natasha said.

Steve took a deep breath, “Sorry about that.”

“I am not the one you should be apologizing to.”

“What?! She-”

“Hey! Save it Spangles!” Tony shouted before he could start again.

“We’re really tired with this shit, man.” Sam said.

Steve just rolled his eyes, “Tell her that.”

“Come on Steve, admit it you did-” Wanda tried to speak but Steve cut her off.

“You’re on her side?”

“I am not on any sides I-”

“Well I am on her side-”

“Excuse me? Steve was defineletly-”

Things got fucked up again. Who knew Avengers could act like actual 5 year olds?

“OKAY, THAT’S ENOUGH!” Steve shouted and everyone shut up. They all turned to him.

“I came to tell you that Sharon will stop by this afternoon.” Steve said calmly.

Clint couldn’t help but chuckle, “Well (Y/N) is gonna be so happy to hear that.” He mocked.

“Steve, that might not be such a good idea.” Sam said.

“You kidding? We’re gonna see a girl fight!” Tony said with a smirk.

Clint high-fived him as others kept arguing about it.


“Okay, you hate shopping. Why are you-” I tried to speak but Natasha cut me off.

“Well it’s necessary and you are the best in picking stuff so-”

“I don’t buy that. Why are you two trying to get me out of here?” I asked.

Wanda sighed. Natasha and her looked at each other before turning back to me.

“Steve is uh- gonna stop by this afternoon, and, umm he’s…” Wanda said.

“He’s what? He’s what?”

“Gonna bring Sharon with him.”

My jaw dropped.  “SHARON? SHARON CARTER?!” I asked, really loud without noticing.

God, I could feel my blood boiling.

Bucky and Sam came in when they heard me literally scream.

Natasha and Wanda took a step back, “(Y/N)-”


I turned to Bucky and Sam, they raised their hands in defense.

“YOU…” I pointed at Bucky.

“’(Y/N) STEVE DOESN’T EVEN CARE ABOUT SHARON’ ‘(Y/N) YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE JELAOUS’ “ I mimicked the things he said back when me and Steve were dating and I got jelaous of Steve and Sharon.

“Okay, doll, look-”

I grabbed the pillow, the first thing I got my hands on and started hitting him with it.


Bucky let me hit him with the pillow a few times, then grabbed the pillow and threw it out of my reach. Then he grabbed me, wrapped his arms around me, my back against his front. He kept me steady as I struggled to get out of his reach in anger.

It took me a few minutes to calm down and stop trying to punch or kick anyone.

“You done?” He asked and I nodded.

When he let go of me, I crossed my arms, not knowing what to do. I still had so much anger in me I couldn’t sit down.I paced around the room as others tried to talk to me.

“I need vodka, like, right now.” 

Tony brought me a drink quickly. I drank up. Now everyone was with me, waiting to see how I will react.

“You know what? I can deal with that!” I said when I finished my drink.

“Because, I am over him. And that, my friends, are called… the closure.” I said as I turned to the team. They were looking at me with worried expressions.

“…He can stick that patriotic-little-thing-of-his in anyone he wants!” 

Okay, now I was losing it.

Clint and Natasha brought me up to my room and made me watch a movie to calm down. Then they left me and went downstairs, probably to say hi to Sharon. I stayed in my room alone, not sure what to do. Should I be downstairs, to show them that I am on over him? But I can’t. I can’t stand the idea of him with her.

As an hour passed, I started getting angry at the others because they had left me up in my room, all alone as they sat down, had a good time with Sharon. Okay. I have to do something.

I got up from my bed and grabbed my phone. I quickly called Jason, an old friend of mine from back in the old SHIELD days. He was not only so god damn attractive, he was arrogant, cocky, rebellious. Steve used to hate the guy.

“I need a quick favor, no questions asked.” I said when he picked up.

“Hello to you to (Y/L/N).” He responded sarcastically.

“You have to come to the tower and act like you came to pick me up for our date, like, right now.”


“I said no questions asked!”

“Okay, you’ll own me one. Be ready in 10.”

“You got it.” We hung up and I dressed up as fast as I could. I took a while more than 10 because I had to look really good. I checked up myself up in the mirror one last time before rushing downstairs to the common room, where I told him to come.

When I walked in, Jason was already inside talking to everyone. “I am so sorry for keeping you waiting.” I said as I walked over to him. He put his arm around me and kissed my cheek, “It’s okay, babe. Let’s get going we’re late for our reservation.”

Everyone was looking at us in shock, “Sorry I forgot to tell you guys! I told Jason to come up to say hi to all of you before we went out…” I said casually with a smile.

“Oh! Hi Sharon! Sorry, I didn’t get the chance to say hi trying to get ready.” I gave her a quick hug.I was fake as hell and just hoped I was a good actress.

“Hi, it’s uh-okay.” She responded, she was clearly surprised too.I looked up at Steve to see his reaction. His jaw was clenched as he stared at me and Jason.

Checkmate, Rogers.

Jason and I left everyone still in shock. I started laughing in the elevator, “We did it! Did you see the looks on their faces?”

“Still need an explanation here sweetheart. I thought you and Rogers were-“

“Yeah that’s over. I needed to get back at him, because he got together with Sharon real quick.”

He chuckled, “And you chose me because you knew it would freak him the hell out.”


“I’ve always liked your thinking. So what do you say we find a bar and be each other’s wing man, like the old days. Maybe you’ll get an actual date.” He said with a small smile.

“Sure.” I smirked. It was going to be a fun night.

“Hey, darlin’,” Bucky says without looking up when Y/N enters his shop as she has every evening since he opened the tattoo parlor.

She smiles at him, at the stands of hair that have escaped the low bun at the base of his neck, at the tattoos snaking up his arms and under the short sleeves of his black t-shirt, dog tags dangling from his neck. He’s penciling in a client, the desk phone pressed between his ear and his shoulder as he listens and writes.

She waits until he finishes the call, eyes trained on his heavenly mouth, before she looks up into his eyes and says, “Hi, baby.”

Bucky blushes when she calls him baby, ducking his head and causing a few more strands of hair to slip loose from his bun. “How are you today, sweet girl?” He asks as she leans into the counter, tracking his movements with a tender gaze. “Okay?”

“Doin’ just fine now that I’m with my favorite soldier,” she says, a cheeky smile in place. “Lots of clients today, love?”

He shakes his head as he turns away from her, pink staining his cheeks now. “Not too bad. You didn’t have to come over tonight, Y/N. I told you I’d be over when I was done here.”

In which Y/N gets captured to be the Winter Soldiers pet

Warnings: kidnapping, torture, swearing, angst and fluff

words: 4.5K

He had noticed her in the 60’s the first time. She had been at the Kennedy parade, smiling and squaring with excitement as JFK, and his wife Jackie rode by, waving and smiling. Her hair was in a tight, and high ponytail, slicked back and long as was the style of the time, and the jewel she wore in it glinted in his eye as his sniper rifle passed over her. He had seen the way her face crumpled into a horrified scream as he hit his mark expertly, and he had seen the way she looked so pretty as she cried into her friend’s shoulders, mascara dripping down her face, marking it with her grief. His caretaker at the time noticed his gaze, and muttering quickly in Russian, hit the comm on his ear and proposed a plan to his superiors without the Assets knowledge. 

The Asset hadn’t known how they got the right woman, or why she was here, but he assumed that it was a simple way to keep him coming back to base— a reason not to run. If he ran, she would never be able to again. 

He saw her the second time huddled in the corner of his room, the green-tinted fluorescent lights making every blemish and blotch on her skin horribly apparent. Her dress, similar to the some he had seen her in the other day, was torn and dirt stained. Her fingertips were bleeding, and her nails were torn and despite not even being in the same vicinity as her for more than five seconds, found his chest swelling with pride at her will to fight. Her eyes grew wide in fear as she noticed him— his hulking stature and muzzle and shaggy hair that was a little too heavy with grease— and immediately, he tried to make himself smaller. He fell to one knee and slouched his back and held out two hands in surrender— a sign of submission he had learned when the torture his caretakers went too far. Her fear lessened somewhat, but she refused to leave the corner of the room for the next few days— going so far as to sleep and defecating in that spot. Her fear paralyzed her, and Bucky woke every day on his too-springy mattress and hoped to find her clean and in a chair or something other than that horrid corner. 

They took her for the first time that day, and he cursed his hearing abilities, for he could hear her screaming in pain— from what, he never wanted to know. 

He found out eventually, as they shoved her back in wearing what looked like cheap underwear and a cargo shirt he wore under his uniform. Her skin looked like it had been pressure washed, and from the small dots hidden in the crook of her arm, he hoped they had taken blood from her rather than injected her with something.

“что они сделали с тобой, милая?” (what have they done to you, sweet thing?). His voice was raspy as he neared her. His movements seemed to be too quick for her liking as she backed away and pressed herself to the bars of the door she was shoved through seconds before.

Anon request: i was thinking of something where reader is a new avengers recruit and bucky has the biggest crush on her (literally everyone can tell) but denies it and he literally can’t ask her to pass the syrup without him becoming a stuttering mess and then reader gets slightly hurt on a mission but the others blow it way out of proportion in hopes of getting him to finally confess he likes her. IF YOU WANT TO THOUGH! if not it’s totally fine. i just really adore your writing and skcndkxns

Warnings: Fluff and teensy bit of angst but it’s barely visible

A/N: My dear anon, here’s the fic I wrote after your request. This is my first attempt at a request ever so I really really hope you’ll like it and that it’s how you pictured it! I had a lot of fun writing it and I can’t wait to hear from you. As always, feedbacks are greatly appreciated 💕

Originally posted by bucky-plums-barnes

To say that you were not a morning person would probably be considered as an euphemism. You hated morning to your guts. Waking up early was not for you. People trying to make conversation with you? They’d generally end up running away scared by the death glare you would shoot them. The cute girls who woke up fresh with slightly messed up hair but in a cute way? That wasn’t you. You’d generally wake up with the mark of your pillow on your cheek, half of your face red from being buried into the said pillow, your hair peaking in all directions, your eyes puffy and skin definitely not glowing. You were a mess.

But since you joined the Avengers initiative a few months ago, you had to change that. You had to become a morning person unless you wanted your ass to be kicked by Natasha during training or Steve to send you run 5k for snapping at him. After a few weeks, you all came to a compromise: they would all let you sulk in peace until you put a step in the gym. During breakfast, they were not allowed to talk to you unless you talked first. But when it was training time, you would have to show motivation and keep your foul mouth shut.

notes: posting this before new years bc i just really wanted to share this with you guys also as a present for 1k followers!! like holy shit!! thank you guy?!?!! :)

Tony’s New Year parties are legend, for multiple reasons, but this year is even more so than usual. Besides the copious amount of alcohol that, more often than not, leads to a complete contrast of morals, Tony goes out of his way to ensure that there are all kinds of crazy forms of entertainment available. 

When one is drunk enough, even the bouncy house smashed into the corner looks fun. (Y/N) is used to these parties. She’s been with the Avengers for several months now and Tony’s over the top celebrations hardly even faze her at this point. The same cannot be said about the latest member of their group though.

Bucky Barnes looks utterly lost. He’s been downing shots like a broken record for the past hour, though he’s as sober as he’d been when he buttoned up that impeccable suit and fumbled to make the tie look presentable. His super soldier qualities apparently don’t make it easy for him to get drunk, because any normal person who be stone cold by now. “Hi, soldier,” she greets, sidling up to him with a smile. He gives her a forlorn, ‘what-am-I-doing-here?’ look and she laughs. When she peers at the shot he’s currently cradling between three fingers, though, she starts coughing. “Is that Patrón? Jesus, how do you not have alcohol poisoning by now?” she mutters to herself, and quickly intercepts the shot before he can down it.

A/N: This is my entry for @silver-starburst’s challenge. It’s off a prompt that an anon sent in for a one-shot inspired by the song ‘Love Sex Magic’ by Ciara and Justin Timberlake.

Bucky Barnes had it bad.  Never in his long life had he imagined he would be sitting alone in a booth in a nightclub in New York City for the 5th Friday in a row, pining over you when he didn’t even know your name.  But there he was, nursing a beer that had absolutely no effect on his body, sulking because after his eyes scanned the floor for the third time since he walked in, you were still nowhere to be found.

Buckyhad known right away when Y/N became pregnant.

He had noticed the minute changes in her body, her exhaustion, and her avoidance of his touch. He had noticed the fractional widening of her hips and the change in the heaviness of her breasts, changes invisible to most other people. It was strange to him that she didn’t tell him right away, even as the panic of becoming a father settled in his chest for a nine month stay.

Eventually, they had gone to dinner and Y/N had told him. She had been wearing a dress that was already a bit tight on her, her confidence plunging and her lip trembling before they even left their apartment. She’s beautiful to him though, no matter what, and he had made sure to tell her that.

She was three months along and she cried when she told him. “I didn’t tell you at first because, even though we were trying to have a baby, I knew you would freak out a little bit. But you already knew didn’t you? You knew the whole time?” She had asked through a thick stream of tears.

He had nodded and smiled, “Yeah. I knew.” He has listed the signs to her and then frowned, brows pulling together as he looked up from the table. “How did you know I knew?”
