Crush

Summary: Everything about Bucky Barnes drives you wild…that’s basically the plot…

Warnings: smut, sexual tension

A/N: I spent today writing my own mini thesaurus, by hand, and I came up with this idea during my breaks.


“Fuck!” Your back slammed down against the thick mat, air shoot out of your lungs.

“If you’re not paying close attention to your enemies you’re going to get yourself killed. What the hell has you so distracted?” Steve stretched a hand out, helping you up.

“N-Nothing.” You huffed, avoiding eye contact with the super soldier in front of you.

That was a lie, a big fat lie. You were completely distracted by the man across the room, the one with the glistening metal arm and the chocolate brown hair. Motherfucking Bucky Barnes.

The Supreme Court Ruling That Led To 70,000 Forced Sterilizations

In 1927, the U.S. Supreme Court decided, by a vote of 8 to 1, to uphold a state’s right to forcibly sterilize a person considered unfit to procreate. The case, known as Buck v. Bell, centered on a young woman named Carrie Buck, whom the state of Virginia had deemed to be “feebleminded.”

Author Adam Cohen tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross that Buck v. Bell was considered a victory for America’s eugenics movement, an early 20th century school of thought that emphasized biological determinism and actively sought to “breed out” traits that were considered undesirable.

“There were all kinds of categories of people who were deemed to be unfit [to procreate],” Cohen says. “The eugenicists looked at evolution and survival of the fittest, as Darwin was describing it, and they believed ‘We can help nature along, if we just plan who reproduces and who doesn’t reproduce.’ ”

All told, as many as 70,000 Americans were forcibly sterilized during the 20th century. The victims of state-mandated sterilization include people like Buck who had been labeled “mentally deficient,” as well as those who who were deaf, blind and diseased. Minorities, poor people and “promiscuous” women were often targeted.

Cohen’s new book about the Buck case, Imbeciles, takes its name from the terms eugenicists used to categorize the “feebleminded.” In it, he revisits the Buck v. Bell ruling and explores the connection between the American eugenics movement and the rise of the Nazi party in Germany.

“Where are you going?” Wanda asks drowsily from your king-sized bed.

Following a particularly grueling mission today, she came by your room because she didn’t want to be alone. This isn’t the first time she has done this and you highly doubt that it’ll be the last. Impromptu sleepovers have become the norm since befriending Wanda and you don’t mind them in the slightest. There’s comfort in going to bed at night knowing that you’re not alone.

“I’m going to grab a snack.”

“Okay,” she yawns, pulling your blanket up to her shoulders and letting her eyes flutter shut.

Dakota Johnson’s new projct: Unfit

Amazon Studios won a multi-studio bidding battle for the pic, on which Johnson also will serve as an executive producer under her Silhouette Productions with Brett Ratner and John Cheng of RatPac Entertainment producing. The spec script, based on Adam Cohen’s book Imbeciles: The Supreme Court, American Eugenics, and the Sterilization of Carrie Buck, was written by former litigation lawyer Melissa London Hilfers.

The logline: In the not-so-distant past, America was gripped by a political movement that promised to eliminate the “unfit” from our country. Unfit is the true story of Carrie Buck, a young Virginia woman who became a lightning rod for that movement, whose 1927 Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell legalized the sterilization of “undesirable” citizens. Buck was forced to fight against it singlehandedly for the one thing she desperately wanted: to be a mother.

Like many, I was not privy to this shocking and fascinating moment in American history,” Johnson said. “I quickly became obsessed with the prospect of shedding light on the massive misstep in American justice. Carrie Buck’s story is poignant and galvanizing, and certain aspects are unnervingly congruent with the relationship between the government and women today. It is an important story that alongside RatPac and Amazon, I am honored and eager to tell.

Said Ratner: “Dakota had told me about the book Imbeciles at a lunch last year, and when John Cheng and I read the spec script, we sent it to her immediately. I couldn’t be more thrilled be involved in this project with Dakota and Amazon, because I know Amazon’s passion and enthusiasm for telling this story is just as strong as Dakota’s.  Although this story took place almost a hundred years ago, the subject matter is unbelievably timely.

“What now?” Buck asks smirking at you, he tosses a clip at you, you catch it one handed slipping it into your weapon, before holstering it.

“Think we can find a chapel around here?” You smirk at him tossing his jacket at him.

“In the middle of the woods? High chances doll, don’t tease me.” Buck chuckles slipping his jacket on.

Affection - Bucky x Reader

Titles are hard ffs

(Adorable gif is not mine. Credit to adorable gif maker.)

“…Gorgeous, beautiful, intelligent…” Bucky placed a kiss on your lips after each compliment, smiling as you giggled.

You were in the Avengers tower after you had taken the next step last night. It was mid-morning and the other Avengers were sitting with you.

“…breathtaking, hilarious, adorable…”

Steve cleared his throat and you sent him a sideways glance.

Bucky carried on, “magical…”

“Buck.” Steve coughed again and Bucky pulled away from you slightly to look at Steve.

“Yes Steve?” Bucky asked innocently.

“We’re uh… trying to look through this list of gifted individuals. Your input would be appreciated.” Steve held up a file.

“Of course. We’re listening.” You said, nuzzling into the crook of Bucky’s neck.

Natasha raised an eyebrow but Steve nodded, “Thank you.”

You managed to restrain yourself for a few seconds but then you leaned up to kiss Bucky’s ear, whispering, “Do you think we can pressure Steve and Nat to go out if we keep going?”

Bucky laughed, stroking your hair.

Steve gave the two of you a steely look.

“Sorry, sorry Steve.” Bucky said quickly, sitting up straighter.

Steve slowly looked back to the file.

Bucky traced gentle circles on your thigh with his fingers, while you laced your fingers with his.

Natasha leaned over to whisper to Steve. You managed to catch the words “Cute”, “Last Night” and “Focus”.

Steve nodded then stood up followed by Nat and the others.

Without another word, they all moved to the elevator, leaving you and Bucky alone.

“Behave.” Steve said before the doors dinged shut.

Bucky gave you a look and his lips were on yours. 

“I thought they’d never leave.”

“Patience.” You smiled.

Bucky raised an eyebrow, “Round two?”

You smirked, “Didn’t you hear what Steve said?”

“Oh, I heard.” Bucky’s lips also formed a smirk before he began to kiss your neck.

“I just don’t care.” He finished, pulling you onto his lap.

“Yeah. Neither do I.”

“I’m here. Sorry. Sorry.” You scramble into the room hopping as you try to put your heel back on. Tony is trying to not laugh, pressing his lips together. Steve smirks behind his hand as you manage to get your shoe on, smoothing out your skirt. Wanda and Nat shake their heads smiles playing on their mouths. “Okay, my bad.” You brush back your hair looking at Fury who is watching you with his one eye, almost amused.

“You didn’t fall down, again did you?” He asks generally curious. You straighten up, pressing your lips together.

Please Don't Go (Bucky Barnes x Reader)

Being a superhero meant that getting hurt was inevitable. It also meant that watching people get hurt, including the ones you loved, was also inevitable. So when you saw him collapse, arms hanging loosely at his sides before the knife was wrenched from his gut, the whole world seemed to slow around you.

You could hear yourself screaming faintly in the background, before you were moving forward, rushing through the sea of people and debris in a vain attempt to reach your boyfriend before the inevitable occurred.

“Bucky!” You screamed, and he slowly turned to look at you, his face void of expression. How had this even happened-he was a super soldier! How had any of this happened? One minute you were buying coffee and the next there was debris surrounding you and a sea of people and-

He’s only human.

You were scrambling to get to him, but by the time you reached him he’d already fallen to his knees. “B-baby-” You started, pulling him into you and pressing a hand tightly against the wound. “Keep pressure on it, you have to keep pressure, please-”

“Baby,” He whispered, leaning against your chest before he chuckled breathily, a wince escaping him. “It’s kind of deep bunny.”

“N-no,” You choked, a sob threatening to escape you. “You’re a super soldier, you’re Bucky Barnes, you’re my baby. Steve will be here soon, and the others will help and we’ll get you to a hospital and-”

“I don’t think I’ll make it (Y/N),” He whispered, gaze flicking up to meet yours. Those usually vibrant blue eyes of his looked tired, and faded.

“Bucky please,” You wailed, sobbing as you clutched onto him. “You have to survive this. We’ve lived through so much worse-”

“I had gear on then baby,” He chuckled, a shaking hand reaching up to brush your cheek. You could feel his warm blood seeping through your fingers as you pressed on the wound. “A t-shirt doesn’t serve for much protection against hunting knives.”

Fear and panic and the idea of never seeing Bucky again had your heart thumping wildly, as if it were threatening to tear itself from the confines of your rib cage. “I can carry you, please Buck, we can make it,” You begged, hooking his arm over your shoulder but he let out a terrible shout, eyes squeezing shut.

“I’ll lose more blood if you-move me,” He gasped, struggling to slow his breathing. “And an ambulance can’t get to me through all of this debris.”

“Stop trying to give up on me!” You screamed, tears leaving hot trails down your cheeks. “Let me save you! You’re not a bad man Bucky, you deserve to live!”

He stared up at you then for what felt like a long time, his grip on your hand tightening temporarily. “Maybe this is what I deserve (Y/N). I took the lives of hundreds of people, maybe I deserve to die like this.”

Mouth agape, you stared at him, horrified. How could he give up on you like this? How could he leave you? “Why are you leaving me like this?” You sobbed, your head falling. “Why can’t you fight for me?”

He pulled your face down so that your forehead could rest against his before he shakily leaned up to kiss you. “You know that I love you (Y/N),” He murmured, voice sounding faint. “But you need to learn to give up when necessary. Baby girl,” He looked up at you, his blue eyes filled with remorse. “I’m going to die.”

“No!” You sobbed, tears freely flowing down your cheeks as you buried your face into his neck. “Please Bucky!” You wailed pathetically, clutching onto him desperately. “Help will be here soon, please just stand up for a minute so I can carry you-”

“Your knee was hurt in the initial explosion,” He spoke, voice sounding hoarse. “You can’t carry me on a good day doll, please don’t make yourself worse.”

“The adrenaline will help,” You pressed, pulling back so you could force him to press his own hands against the growing spot of blood on his thin grey shirt. “I can do this Bucky, please-”

“(Y/N)!” He shouted, voice stern and you froze. “I am going to die, whether you try to carry me or not.” He spoke with authority this time and you noticed just how exhausted he looked. “Please darling, just-just hold me.”

You stared down at him for a few more moments, your mind a whirl of ideas and thoughts as you struggled to find a way to ensure your boyfriend’s survival. “But what if I-”

“Darling please,” He choked out and a tear slid down his cheek. “Just hold me.”

And so you did, arms wrapped tightly around Bucky’s lean body, his face pressed tightly into your neck. You struggled immensely, desperate to choke down your sobs so that you could hold one last conversation with the man you loved, but the fear that held your chest in a vice like grip kept you whimpering above him as he struggled to soothe you.
You would never see Bucky again. No more phone calls, no more laughing about the bills together, no more waking up to his wonderfully sleepy voice, no more late night sex or long talks during the stake outs on missions. No more Bucky. All you had left was a funeral and these last few moments.

“Bucky,” You sobbed, clutching him even tighter to your chest. “I’m so scared, and I just love you so much-” You choked. “Oh God Bucky I just love you so much.”

“I know doll,” He breathed against your neck, his voice weak. “I know.”

He didn’t answer you again after that. It was only after a few minutes of you rocking him against you did you realize that Bucky had stopped breathing.

It was nearly a half hour later that Steve found you there, kneeling on the pavement while you screamed, your face turned up at the sky. His face a mask of horror and disbelief, he dropped to his knees in front of you, staring at the body of the man he cared like a brother for encased in your arms.

You continued to scream, wailing in disbelief and horror until his body was pried from your arms, and even then, Steve with his heart broken, had to carry you home.

You were out to lunch with one of your best friends talking about this and that, mainly the men in your lives.

“I can’t believe Luke and I have almost reached our three year anniversary.” She sighed happily as she drank some of her wine.

“Nor can I, I’ll be shocked if Jordan and I get that far.” You said truthfully as you finished your salad.

Buck Strickland, A Loyalty Undeserved

Of all the things that confuse me about this show, this one has to be the most perplexing. Watching Hank go through his daily life has taught us many things, he is a reasonably smart man, he loves his family, he is a (supposed) master craftsman, and he is extremely loyal to the people he calls his friends. However there is one friend who constantly disappoints, betrays, and frequently uses Hank for his own selfish needs, Buck Strickland.

There are numerous instances throughout the series that reveal Buck’s true character, but for now let’s just take a look at some of the most heinous examples.


Buck does not deserve Hank’s loyalty because he himself is not loyal to Hank, this becomes very apparent in ‘The Mis-education of Bobby Hill’. In this episode Hank is having a bad year at the annual Sales-a-Thon, his numbers are even lower than the village idiot’s. (Joe Jack) While Hank is on the sales floor struggling, Buck is in the back playing a game of poker with a few people, most notably M.F. Thatherton. Buck bets Hank and loses, forcing Hank to go work for someone he despises for the rest of the sale. We learn later that the value of the bet was only twenty bucks, which in my opinion is a fair approximation of what Buck thinks of Hank.

For my next example, I will attempt to give you some insight into what kind of person Buck Strickland really is. The episode 'The Buck Stops Here’s how Buck’s lack of common sense and lack of emotion toward anyone but himself. It all starts with Bob caddying for Mr. Strickland which leads to him picking up some nasty habits (Cheating, cursing, misogyny) and ends with Bobby palling around with Buck to several different places, the last of which is a seedy backalley poker game, Buck and Bobby show up and are told by the bouncer that Bobby is not allowed inside. Now instead of leaving like a decent person, Buck opts to gamble anyway leaving Hank’s son in an alleyway by himself holding onto half of Buck’s money. Bobby is forced to see several scary things whilst Buck is inside losing all his money, a scary couple making out, the same couple vomiting behind a dumpster, the same couple immediately making out afterwards (gross) And after all that trauma a huge thug steps out from the poker game and demands the rest of the money and Bobby’s watch (present from Buck) because Buck was so far in the hole. A chase ensues, ending with Bobby giving up the watch after being saved by his dad, Buck is nowhere to be seen.

My final example (for today) comes from the episode 'Hank Fixes Everything’. This one begins with all the local propane dealerships undercutting each other, forcing prices so low that selling propane is actually COSTING the stores money. Hank being Hank tries to fix this problem and calls a meeting of all the owners to try to come to a peaceful resolution. Buck being Buck screws this up royally, and starts an illegal price fixing arrangement among all of them, the prices skyrocket across all propane stores and the profits are huge. The PGA (Propane Gas Association) is called in to investigate and zero in on Hank as the reason for the price fixing, as he was the one who originally called the meeting. Hank is forced to wear a wire or go to prison, he chooses the wire and is forced to try and incriminate Buck. Hank walks in on a meeting of the owners and stealthily lets Buck know of the wire tap. Buck panics and simply looks to Hank to get him out of yet another mess he brought on himself. At no point does Buck offer to turn himself in (although framing Hank probably crossed his mind based on what we know about him) and Hank does manage to save all their butts just in time.

So as you can see students, Buck is not a good man. Hell he’s not even a decent man, he has no scruples, not code of ethics, and no loyalty to anyone but himself. He will double cross, sell-out, and con anyone he can to get what he wants, with no thought of the consequences. We will definitely be returning to this subject again as Buck is nowhere near done with his hurtful shenanigans.

In the morning (Jackson Smut)

I had my eyes closed, legs straddling the arm of the couch as I humped the shit out of it. I moaned loudly, gripping on to the material in front of me as I pressed against my clit. I fucked my hips quicker, my wetness begin to run down the side of my leg.

I felt myself clench around the emptiness that made my pussy weak. The cold apartment air hit my naked body as it mixed with the heat radiating from me.

I heard the front door open and close, signalling Jackson was home. I opened my eyes and found him standing directly in front of me, looking down at what I was doing. I kept up my pace, moaning for him as he leaned down and pecked my lips gently.

“Come on, I’m here now.” He mumbled, holding my hands as I carried on bucking against the couch’s arm. Jackson looked exhausted, he was a lot of the time which is why I took care of my own sexual desires.

After taking off his pants, Jackson lead us to the bedroom where I straddled his thigh. He laid back into the mattress to relax, closing his eyes which I thought was him falling asleep. I humped his thigh as hard as I could, keeping a steady pace as I leaned down to bite on his neck.

Jackson’s hands rubbed along my thighs, squeezing them softly. But my main focus was his thighs. So thick and muscly. I felt him tense his thigh on purpose, pulsing against my clit as I moved faster and faster. The wet sound of my pussy began filling the room as I bucked my hips over and over. I sucked harshly on his neck, whining as he lifted his leg up, making my clit bang harder against him.

I screamed out in ecstasy of the new found angle. I sat back up, leaning back against his leg as my pussy fell closer to his hip. The protruding bone rubbed perfectly against my wet hole. I humped his body like a pillow, slowing down to grind harder into him.

I felt his hands grab my hips, still with his eyes closed he lead me up to ride his face.

“Jackson you don’t have t-” it was too late, he began sucking harshly on my pussy. I thought since he was tired, I’d just cum on his thigh like I’d done thousands of times before. But he was pulling me down into his mouth with force.

Next thing I felt was his warm tongue fucking inside me. I screamed out in pleasure, arching my back as I collapsed backwards on to his body. I bucked my hips to create more friction. Jacksons head stayed deep in my pussy, the sounds becoming louder as my juices mixed with his spit. He bit down on my clit delicately, to which I came.

I crawled up to him, laying on his side as I caught my breath. “You didn’t have to do that.” I whispered breathlessly, rubbing his cheek.

“I wanted to,” he whispered back, kissing my forehead. “Besides, you can repay the favour in the morning.”

anonymous asked:

Imagine Steve carrying Bucky after rescuing him from that Hydra base. Bucky can barely stand, never mind walk, and he's completely out of it, so Steve carries him, remembering all the times that Bucky had carried him.

“Buck?” Steve asks, just as Bucky crumples.

Steve catches him before he hits the ground, but it’s a close thing. “Bucky?” Steve repeats, and Bucky starts trying to push him away. 

“S-steve, it’s fine, I’m fine. I just needa…need to walk it off…” He sways again and again, Steve is there. 

“Remember the summer we were twenty, and I stayed out all day helping Mrs. Lewis and made myself sick?”

Bucky, still pale as a sheet, manages to find enough strength to manage a weak snort. “You wanna walk down memory lane now, pal?” 

“What’d you say to me then, when I was so sick I couldn’t even stand and we needed to get home?” Steve asks, heart in his throat, arms full of his best guy. 

Bucky doesn’t say anything for a second, and Steve worries that he might not remember, or might be too out of it. But then, “’S-sometimes y’gotta let somebody carry you.’”

Steve nods. “So let me carry you, Buck. Like all the times you carried me.”

And with a nod, Bucky does. 

Red Room & Winter Soldier Programs in the MCU - Part II

As a part of #Buckynat Week sponsored by fuckyeahbuckynatasha, I’m contributing a summary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) depiction of the Soviet Red Room and Winter Soldier programs.

In long-standing comic canon, the Red Room Academy produced Natasha Romanoff as a Black Widow operative; the parallel Winter Soldier program produced a brain-washed super-assassin out of an injured James ‘Bucky’ Barnes. The last four episodes of the Agent Carter TV series lifted the curtain on what was simply speculation of Natasha’s past Soviet training and, to a lesser extent, Bucky’s ‘recruitment’ by the Russians within the MCU.

In the first part of this MCU-focused meta, I explored the Red Room indoctrination and training practices used to make girls into Soviet covert operatives. This second part focuses on two of the masterminds responsible for the Winter Soldier program. The third part (forthcoming) will be more speculative, as I make connections between the Red Room and Winter Soldier programs as well as some predictions for Natasha’s backstory in Age of Ultron. Most Especially, because it’s #Buckynat Week, I’ll go on even further out on a limb and suggest a possible romantic dynamic for Natasha and Bucky in Captain America: Civil War.

Spoiler Alert! Obviously, I’m discussing many of the events of the first season of Agent Carter, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (as well as touch on other Marvel movies as they apply), so if you wish to remain spoiler-free, this is your chance to avert your eyes.
