The plate Tony was holding shattered across the kitchen floor when it
slipped through his fingers. “Jesus,
Steve sorry about that. Sorry.”

fine. Just lost a little in my head is all.” He bent down to start
cleaning up the mess. “What do you need?”

got it.” Tony waved him away. “What can I do for you, Captain?
What do you need from me?”
I was thinking maybe you could take a look at Bucky’s arm?” Steve
asked hopefully. “It’s been freezing up or not flexing or something
and it’s hurting him quite a bit. I told him you’d be happy to help
him with it.”
to help –”
Tony cleared his throat. “That’s fine. But I’m busy, so send him to
Banner. He’s got access to everything in the lab anyway.”
was hoping you would
look at his arm specifically. Bruce isn’t as mechanically inclined as
you are and I want Bucky to have the best.”
busy, Steve.” Tony wiped his hands on his pants and raised his
eyebrows. “Banner is smarter than me anyway, he will find a fix
faster than I can. Sorry, I just can’t right now. Sorry.”
okay. I’ll just take him to Banner then.” Steve sent him an odd
look, but turned and left anyway, and Tony sank down into a chair,
sitting on his hands so it wasn’t quite as obvious they were shaking.
So obviously the clothes Bucky’s wearing in Civil War definitely aren’t his Winter Soldier “uniform” and I doubt he waited till he got to Romania to buy those, which means that shortly after the end of Winter Soldier, unlessHYDRA somehow kept civilian clothes in his size on hand and he knew where they were (ya know, the boring option), either:
1) some poor body builder got mugged in an alley by the actual Winter Soldier
2) the world’s most wanted assassin walked into a clothing store in his full leather getup, a wad of “stolen” HYDRA cash clutched in his metal hand, and bought himself a pair of jeans and a couple of t-shirts
So, I’m not going to include #1, because I already did that prompt in another story.
The Avengers are at the Tower for plot reasons. And just because I wanted it that way. Deal with it LOL.
Bucky rubbed his eyes awake as FRIDAY announced that he was receiving an incoming phone call. He glanced at the clock on his nightstand and it read 2AM.
“Accept,” he muttered huskily to the AI.
“Wait, FRIDAY, no, no, no!” The call immediately came in.
“Hello?” Bucky asked with confusion.
He expected it to be Steve, who was on a mission with the entire team. It left Bucky as the sole “superhero” left in the tower. But he didn’t see himself as such. Bucky was crashing at the high-rise because he really had no place else to go. And he knew Steve would be disappointed if Bucky didn’t take him up on the offer.
“Bucky, hi.” A female voice said.
He squinted and then put it together. “Y/N, is that you?”
Y/N was Happy’s niece. Tony and Pepper were basically her aunt and uncle without being related. She lived in the city, and therefore was around the tower a lot. Pepper was constantly inviting her over for dinner. Sometimes she’d do her laundry there. If Tony ever had a party, she was invited. The rest of the team had befriended her.
But Bucky…Bucky kept his distance – just like he kept his distance from basically everyone.
Summary: Y/N and Peter have always hated each other but when Y/N discovers an element that can make people fall in love, her whole relationship flips upside down.

Author’s Note: I’m still working on the last part to thin ice but I’ve had the idea of a love potion series for Peter and since we’re in quarantine, I said fuck it. I’m such a sucker for an enemy to love type thing so this is great cause technically it’s a slowburn but not at the same time! Also Y/N is ADOPTED cause duh of course she is. Let me know if you want to be added to the taglist!
