Ahhhhh, I’ve been writing all afternoon and I decided to write and post this one in between by two series’ that I’m updating today. Because who doesn’t like a cute one shot with Bucky in it? This was requested by an amazing person, who I think is one of the sweetest people I’ve met here on tumblr. This one’s for you. xoxo
Request and Requested by@barely-emily:Hi, love! Could you write a one-shot/imagine/whatever about the reader’s birthday being on the 16th of december, when all that stuff happened to Bucky, and she doesn’t mention her birthday to not draw attention to the date and Bucky or Tony or whatever find out and it’s just kinda fluffy?? Awkward request but you’re such a good writer, you’ll pull it off! xox
It was December 16th. Today was the anniversary of when everything was taken away from the love of your life. It had been a day that he had been dreading for the last two weeks, the horrors of the past resurfacing as the day was drawing closer. Two months after you had started dating him, he became completely open with you. He decided that you had a right to know when and how all these horrible things happened to him. He didn’t want to keep such a life altering secret from you. That was seven months ago. From there, all your relationship ever did was grow and you two just loved each other even more.
You had prepared yourself for what the day would bring. Today was actually your birthday, but you hadn’t brought up your birthday in months. Obviously you had told him before you found out what this day meant to him, but after that, you kept your mouth shut. You didn’t want to draw attention to yourself today, you wanted to focus on Bucky. He needed your support, and you were completely willing to give it to him. Who cares that you were one year older? You just wanted to be with Bucky, and that’s all you could ever want on your birthday.
You started off the day by sneaking out of bed, and heading down to the kitchen to make Bucky’s favorite breakfast. It was to distract him from the memories, because you knew food always did that for him. You made chocolate chip pancakes and bacon, with a bowl of plums on the side. When you carried the tray into your room, he was beginning to stir, slowly waking up.
You stood next to his side of the bed, and balanced on one leg as you nudged him in the ribs with your foot. He groaned and turned towards you, opening one eye. You looked down at him, biting your lip. He gave you a soft smile.
“Good morning, babe. I made you breakfast.” You whispered into his ear as you kissed him on the cheek, still holding the tray. He sat up, chucking lightly as you placed it on his lap.
“All of this, for me?” He gave you a sweet kiss on the lips. “Doll, you didn’t have to do this.” He gave you a look, a smirk on his face.
“I know, but I wanted to.” You sat down on his side on the bed, and he placed his hand over yours, silently thanking you. He praised you on your cooking skills and told you how great the plums were with his mouth half full, making you laugh out loud. He kept telling you how amazing of a girlfriend you were, making sure to tell you about ten times that he loved you a lot. He was such a dork, and you loved him for that. Once he finished all his food, you took the tray and went back downstairs to put it in the sink.
As Bucky waited for you to come back in bed, he heard a chime from your phone that was on the nightstand next to him. The screen was facing up, and he could see what the message was notifying you of.
Happy Birthday my sweet girl. xoxo, mom
Bucky was confused. You hadn’t mentioned your birthday in a really long time and he never remembered it being today. He realized that he forgot your birthday completely and began cursing himself. You heard him mumbling in the bedroom as you walked back in, a huge smile on your face.
“It’s your birthday and you didn’t tell me?” Hurt was etched all over his face as he gazed at you from across the room.
“I-I didn’t want to draw attention to today… because you know… it’s that day and I want to focus on you.” You fumbled with your hands as you averted your eyes anywhere around the room as long as you weren’t looking at him.
“Babe, come here.” His eyebrows were furrowed as he pulled back the sheets, inviting you to join him. You got into bed with him and rest your head on his chest, his metal arm rubbing your back. “I know today is that day, but because I have you, it almost feels like any other day. But, it’s my doll’s birthday and how could I not want to celebrate it? Forget about me, if it’s your birthday then that day all those years ago means nothing to me. Because baby, you’re my world.”
You smiled against his skin and lifted yourself to place a tender kiss on his sweet tasting lips. “I love you, James Buchanan Barnes.”
He smiled down at you, kissing your forehead. “I love you too, doll, and Happy Birthday.” You kissed his collarbone, and breathed in his scent. Suddenly, he was on top of you, biting your ear lobe. You gasped, and lust filled your eyes as he whispered in your ear, smirking against it.
“How about you get in your birthday suit, and I give my doll a part of her present?”
Ta da! I hoped you liked it love, and I hope I did your request some justice. This one was a lot of fun to write, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have the opportunity to write this. I’ll be doing more requests and one shots, so if you have one, don’t be afraid to hit up my inbox! I love you all and have a great evening. xoxo
Dean & Cas (Destiel) Coffee Shop/Bakery AU fic recs
A Little Patience (288614 words, NC-17) by riseofthefallenone: It sometimes feels a little wrong thinking debauched things about a guy who could very well be one of Sammy’s teachers. But then those wrong feelings go up in smoke when the downright sinful fantasies kick in just from thinking the word ‘teacher’. Those are always pretty darn amazing and Dean has a very vivid imagination.
Cas wanders into a coffee shop one day. Several months later, he walks out of the same coffee shop, this time with a boyfriend.
The Pumpkin Pie Started It (8118 words, NC-17) by wiccanstiel: Dean Winchester is your ordinary college student. He does his work, fixes cars, complains about being broke.
Except when he visits the new campus bakery, he ends up getting more than the pie he asked for.
Kiss the Baker (112697 words, NC-17) by Ltleflrt: Jo is pregnant and craving something a little bit unusual. When she sends Dean on a mission to find her some chocolate cake donuts with bacon sprinkles, he’s sure that he’ll fail. Luckily his partner Benny comes to his rescue and introduces him to a quirky little bakery that sells all kinds of weird (and delicious!) baked goods. And they do special orders!
Dean finds excuses to keep going back, and Castiel finds excuses to keep giving him special treats.
Easy Now, With My Heart (2496 words, NC-17) by casfallsinlove: Dean Winchester is a kindergarten teacher. Castiel Milton is a writer slash works-in-a-coffee-shop. He also happens to be the extremely hot one-night stand that Dean never intended to see again other than in his own fantasies (he’s classy like that). But suddenly Cas is everywhere and Dean is convinced that Fate is out to get him. And maybe they do this thing backwards, but that doesn’t have to mean they can’t make it in the end, right?
Afternoon Delights (1801 words, T) by snarkymonkey: Castiel has just moved to Lawrence, Kansas and the nearby café has the strangest sign out front.
“My number,” says Dean, because he’s a fucking champion, he’s cool, he’s collected, he’s Captain Smooth of the USS Smoothtania, that’s right. He is definitely not leaning against the counter for moral support. Cas doesn’t looked seduced or impressed, though. He does not look like a dude who just met Captain Smooth and wants to ride the loveboat. He looks puzzled.
Grand Opening (2831 words, mature) by snarkymonkey: Castiel has a few alterations to make in regards to his new cafe. But his contractor isn’t helping.
Love, All Alike (126271 words, mature) by Phantoms_and_Foxgloves: '“Hey, baby brother.” Grinned Gabe as Castiel slid into the passenger’s seat. “How was day one?”
Castiel considered, his eyes drifting to the spot where Dean had disappeared around the gate. “All in all,” he mused quietly, “surprisingly interesting.”’
When Castiel Novak realised that he and his hyper-religious father were never going to see eye-to-eye he’d jumped ship, counting on the one person who had managed to escape their poisonous family dynamic to catch him: Gabriel. Now he must face his senior year almost entirely alone, as he tries to learn how to cope with freedom for the first time.
I’ll admit I’m stretching the coffee shop/bakery thing with this one, but it’s there!
An Exercise In ‘Worthless’ (26547 words, mature) by beastofthesky: “I mean, you’re–” He gestures at Cas, in his neat oxford shirt and nice pants. “–and I’m a high school dropout who tattoos for a living.”
Wherein Dean makes a hefty living as a tattoo artist who owns the space next to Gabriel’s cafe. Sam attends the local university. When Gabe’s cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam’s university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma’s coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That’s just logic.
One song: They Don’t Care About Us by Michael Jackson
Two Movies: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Avengers Assemble (er I’m blaming Tom Hiddleston and his Loki swagger, also it’s the only other movie I can think of!)
Three Series: The Night Manager, Doctor Who & Victorious/ or Sam & Cat
Four people: Tom Hiddleston (duh, obviously) JJ Feild, Paul McGann & Ariana Grande

Do you happen to know of any deaf or blind destiel fics? Thanks!
I wrote some myself (all links go to AO3):
✗Misunderstandings When the handsome new student Castiel Novak arrives at Lawrence High, Dean has every intention of making him feel welcome. However, Castiel seems to ignore Dean whenever Dean tries to talk to him. [Deaf!Cas]
✗ At First Sight
Dean has been blind since he was four years old, but at 18 years old he regains his sight through special surgery. This also means that he will finally be able to actually see his boyfriend Castiel for the first time. Castiel is excited, but at the same time utterly terrified that Dean won’t approve of his looks. [Blind!Dean]
✗ Through Your Eyes
Dean’s best friend Castiel is blind, which is why Cas loves it whenever Dean describes the things as he sees them. When Castiel gets curious and wants more details about Dean’s looks, Dean is reluctant to go into detail about them. Castiel’s solution is simple, and demands nothing more than a gentle touch. [Blind!Cas]
✗ Delicious Imagine your OTP, based on this text post: ‘Okay, so I’m a waitress at this restaurant that’s open really late and it’s nearly 1am and this family comes in and I’m so tired that I handed their BLIND SON a menu and he’s like “ah… thank you… I’ll just… read this” in a serious voice and I fucking snorted.‘
With blind!Dean and waiter!Cas. [Blind!Dean]
Some cute ones by other authors:
- Deaf!Dean -
Chocolate and maple bacon cupcakes are the best things that Castiel has ever encountered. Except for maybe the guy who bakes them.
✗ Deaf Destiel AU where Dean is born deaf. His entire life was filled with communication issues, little friends, and frustrations… until he meets Castiel in a book store.
✗ Speak And I’ll Listen Cas and Dean have been neighbors since they were six years old, the fact that Cas is deaf meaning little to Dean until an accident makes it all too clear.
Being deaf sucks. Or at least, that’s what people assume…

Inspired by a news story about a coffee shop worker who learned sign language for a regular customer who was deaf.
- Blind!Cas -
Castiel, blind from an accident when he was six, usually spends his Thursday afternoons the same way. He orders cinnamon coffee and the special of the day from a bakery run by a man who smells like leather and motor oil, and he may or may not be a little in love.
The hardest part about dating a blind person was everyone else.
Professor!Cas AU inspired by the post ‘Blind people must save a lot on electricity’.
