Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader Warnings: Smut Summary: Bucky goes missing before the wedding. A/N: This is based off this post, after I read it I just couldn’t get it out of my head and had to write it. Come let me know what you think! Word count : 1,348
You nervously flatten the soft white fabric of your dress, taking a shaky breath. Looking at yourself in the mirror, you fix a stray hair and adjust your dress. “You look beautiful, Y/N” Natasha’s hands are cold on the warmed skin of your shoulders. You smile at her in the reflection of the mirror. “Barnes is a lucky guy” she says sincerely, her beautiful eyes locked on yours.
You cant help but shake your head and a small laugh escapes your mouth before you speak “pretty sure, I’m the lucky one Tasha”.
“You’re both lucky-” she moves a curl of your hair back in place “-to find such perfect love in this world” she smiles but you notice the sadness behind her words.
Turning around you take her into your arms, a strong loving embrace. Clearing your throat of the tears you murmur “I wonder how Bucky is doing” laughter dancing in your words.
Hi, I'm tiara_48 and MonicaOP21 :D. What I'll like, if possible something on the Leader Of The Free World AU!! Stony all the way!! Maybe something with Immigrants? Pretty please?? hugs!! Monica
I haven’t really done much Steve/Tony in LOFW, have I? Here ya go.
They had held the wedding privately – in the White House, as Tony had demanded, while Steve laughed and called him a Bridezilla. Still, they couldn’t escape the public eye entirely, and Tony had agreed to turn the reception speeches into a sort of press-conference-media-event. Rhodey and Sam had given speeches as Best Men, Clint had put in his cameo, and they’d had their first dance; so Steve was surprised when Tony told the cameras “Keep rolling.”
“What are you up to?” Steve asked in an undertone, as Tony waved to Kamala, who brought him a small leather folio.
“When we talked about wedding gifts, I couldn’t figure out what to give the vice-president,” Tony said, holding up the folio. “Assassinating Clint was out of the question, and you’re lacking in material desires.”
The assembled reporters laughed. Steve narrowed his eyes.
“So I decided I’d pull a few strings, and this morning Clint signed a little document into law,” Tony said. “Sara’s Law is named for Sara Rogers, who immigrated to this country at the age of twenty-three. It grants indefinite residency rights to all immigrants under the age of twenty-five, regardless of documentation status, and budgets federal funds for the creation of a new government agency designed to guide anyone over the age of twenty-five to documented resident status or citizenship. As of this moment, no immigrant in this country is an “illegal” immigrant, thanks to Sara’s Law.”
There was an audible intake of breath from the crowd. Steve took the folder, opened it, and frowned.
“How did you….” he began.
“I’m the Illuminati, dearest,” Tony murmured, then, louder, “If I can’t give you something nice for your wedding, what’s the point of being Secretary of Defense?”
Steve blinked rapidly. “You gave me twelve million new citizens,” he managed.
“It was that or a World’s Okayest Vice President mug,” Tony told him.
Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson’s newly released video “Just Hold On" takes you on a whirlwind tour of different cities around the world. The video features two people time traveling and running around in each city, living a care free lifestyle together. The upbeat tempo of the song goes great with the uplifting message that pushes you to never give up.
“What do you do when a chapter ends? / Do you close the book and never read it again? / Where do you go when your story’s done? / You can be who you were or who you’ll become,” is the hook that is repeated throughout the video as we watch these two people live their life to its fullest.
Anonymous said to buckykingofmemes: Ok but talking about salsa and swing I gotta ask if Steve’s done any dance sketches, it is in my contract as a social dance nerd
steve actually has a ton of dance sketches. he used to come with me when i wanted to go dancing and use it as life drawing practice. said it helped him get the unusual poses better.
anyway, this sketch is a really old one, from back before the war. that lovely lady im dancing with is my baby sister becca. becca and i used to do swing competitions together, and we were an unstoppable team, since we’d been dancing together since before she could walk. we danced with other people a lot, but when it came to competitions becca and i were pure magic. i was a pretty big guy and she was always tiny, so i could whip her through steps and lifts like lightning. and she always trusted me to catch her, since id been tossing her in the air for as long as she could remember, and never once let her drop. the two of us would invent lifts nobody else in brooklyn would dare to try.
sometimes we roped stevie into helping, because he wasnt much bigger than becca, and we didnt have mirrors to practice with. so if we wanted to see how a move looked, we’d teach stevie becca’s lift and she’d watch and figure out what needed changing. steve had no rhythm at all, but he was usually game for the lifts. later, in the star spangled show, they tried to make use of some of those, but he still didnt have the steps down, so it never worked out.
after i got drafted, becca kept dancing. by the time she was thirty, she held the title of brooklyns longest-running swing queen, with fifteen consecutive wins.

Avengers x Reader
Warnings: sexist comments
Summary: you hang out with the guys of avengers so much and they never see you dressed up as a “girl.” But after pietro joined the team, he made comments about how you were a boy and cannot believe you were a female because of how you dress or look. You proved him wrong and left him speechless.
“What do you guys want to watch?”
You were laying upside down on the couch, your head hanging at the edge.
You look blankly at the black tv screen.
“Whatever you guys want is fine with me,” says Steve looking at Tony.
“How bout you (Y/n),” Tony says, going on his knees and staring closely at your face.
You sighed,“ I don’t know, you haven’t watched Fast and Furious yet, right Steve?”
You turn to him and he nods his head no.
“Fast and furious it is,“says Tony, looking for the DVDs.
You sit up next to Steve, your legs spread open with your elbows on your knees and your back hunched over.
You sat like a guy, dressed like one too.
You wore a big, plain white tee and some sweatpants. Steve was wearing the same outfit too, and Tony, and Clint.
You had your hair in a weird, messy low bun. You didn’t wear makeup, you didn’t care about how you looked honestly.
Pietro walked in,” what are you guys watching?“
"All of the Fast and Furious movies, we’re on the first one right now,” you said looking at him,“ care to join us?”
He scoffed,“ that’s boring.”
“Don’t like fast car action typa movies? I do. I think they’re cool,” you said.
“They are not even fast,” he says sitting down,“ I am way faster.”
You roll your eyes.
“But anyways,” he says,“ don’t you all think that we should have more women in our team? I mean, we only have two and one of them is my sister. Plus Natasha scares me.”
“You only want girls in our team, to flirt with,” Clint says.
You scoffed,“ excuse me? Two? Hello, I’m right here?!”
Pietro laughs,“ you? You are a female?”
You open your mouth wide, who does he think he is.
Everyone just stayed quiet. Except for Steve but when he opens his mouth to speak, you put a finger on his lips. Pietro doesn’t know what’s coming.
They all get it though, you don’t dress like how other girls would dress or look.
“Anywaaaaaays,” Tony says breaking up the awkward silence,“ we’re having a party tonight, I forgot to tell you guys.”
“What time?” You asked.
“Starts at 9pm.”
“Tony it’s 8 o'clock.”
You get up,"I’ll see you at the party I guess.”
Piet laughs,“ want to borrow one of my suits? I have a tie that would look great on you.”
Steve shoves his shoulder causing him to fall off of the couch.
You’re going to regret what you said,” you thought, while picking out the perfect dress.
Yes you had dresses. You just didn’t like wearing them.
You grabbed the sexiest one of them all.
It was a black, sleeveless and strapless, tight dress, that has a sweetheart neck line. It showed ALL of your curves and showed a good amount of skin. It went right above your knee.
You had your hair in waves and you put a some makeup on, not too much to the point where it doesn’t look like you.
You checked the time.
Okay perfect, everyone should be there already right?
You head to the stairs and began to go down.
You felt like Cinderella, everyone had their eyes on you.
The whole team especially.
Wanda and Nat wore a smirk on their faces and the guys had their jaws on the floor. Including Pietro’s.
You finally got down and walked towards the group of men.
“Babe,” Steve says, walking up to you, putting his arms around your waist, and giving your cheek a kiss,“ you look beautiful .”
You blushed,“ aww, thanks baby.”
Pietro’s mouth was still hanging open.
You looked at him and smirked.
“Do I still look like a man to you Pietro, huh?”
He just stared and violently shook his head no.
“I thought so.”
“Come on, sweetheart,” Steve says, giving you his arm for you to hook your arms through,“ let’s dance.”
You and Steve walked off onto the dance floor.
Pietro finally found his voice back and turned to Tony,“ she’s dating S-Steve?”
Tony smirked,“ yeah, why? You want her now don’t you Speedy.”
Pietro looked down at his drink and took a sip, walking off.
“He totally wants her.”
A/N: let me know what you think! Remember, I post every Friday at 5pm PST!
Update: ps. I just re read it and didn’t notice all my mistakes (spelling etc) oops! Fixed it now!
I swear I do draw things other than AVAC, they’re just so fun and dorky and I’m on a dancing kick. I also spent a long time the other day thinking about dancing across different multiverses, but that’s a post for another time.
I’m always 100% here for Tony teaching Steve to dance.
Headcanon:#1 “Being best friends with Soda…” Characters:Sodapop/Oc
*He will always give you his jacket the moment the weather becomes brisk. *You both have an obsession with Elvis and go to the movie house to see his latest movies. *You’re comfortable enough around him to get undressed in front of him. *He gives you random little hugs when you’re least expecting it. *He’d never admit this to anyone, but, sometimes he lets you braid his hair. *You and Sodapop go to dances with Steve and Evie. *You are awfully close with Darry and Ponyboy, and when Mr and Mrs Curtis were alive, you were close with them too. *You had hated Sandy, you knew she was bad news from the moment you met her, and Sandy hated you too, she was always trying to stop Soda from seeing you, but Sodapop couldn’t go a day without speaking to you. *On particularly hot days you and Sodapop will share a bath and talk about things that weren’t particularly important. *He is always rude to your boyfriends because he knows they’re not good enough for his best friend.
Brown Eyed Girl (Steve Rogers x Brown Eyed! Female Reader)
(TOP GIF NOT MINE CREDIT GOES TO OWNER)
(The picture is actually of my eyes so I guess that belongs to me :))
Pairing: Steve Rogers x Female Reader
Warnings: Fluff, Dancing, Reader wearing only Steve’s shirt and Steve checking her out, Also I think there’s like one swear word
Summary: You’ve always had mixed feelings about your eye color. But Steve loves you, his one and only Brown Eyed Girl.
A/N: So I was inspired by Van Morrison’s song, “Brown Eyed Girl”, and also seeing my eyes in the sunlight. The reader’s feelings towards her eye color are based on how I feel/felt about my eyes. This one’s for all my brown eyed beauties out there! (For those of you who don’t have brown eyes, your eyes are beautiful too!!). I hope you guys enjoy!
Some people love ‘em.
Others hate 'em.
You had a memory of telling your parents that you wished you had blue or green eyes. You had said that yours were too boring. You remembered how they laughed and said to be happy with your eyes. That there were some people who couldn’t even see the color of their eyes because theirs didn’t work the way they were supposed to.
So you just stopped mentioning it.
Through your teenage years you slowly began to think that they might be pretty, but maybe it was just the eye makeup talking.
• The reason why you find yourself in this situation is because Fury has assigned you and Steve on an undercover mission to infiltrate a gala and you would surely dance there. • You are surprised when Steve tells you he’s never had the chance to dance before, but you tell him you can show him how. • Obviously, he accepts with a shy smile. Really cute to see. • He is a real gentleman. He doesn’t touch you without asking first and that makes you smile all the time. Seriously, he is so adorable when he is flustered. • Steve is unexpectedly a little uncomfortable because he doesn’t know how to move his body in sync with yours. But, after you show him he can see this as fight choreography, he gets it and he is more aware of his movements. • You are inspired by the Yule ball dance practice scene in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and he laughs as well. This relaxes the atmosphere a lot more. • He is glad to have you close to him, yet it intimidates him because he doesn’t know how to handle the situation sometimes. • His eyes are glued to his feet while you dance because he is afraid to step on your toes. • It takes him less time than you think to memorize everything you teach him about dancing, but he doesn’t tell you because he has other plans. • Steve basically waits for you every evening in the training room to dance with you. • At some point, he finds a new found confidence around you. • There are a lot of smiles, giggles, and laughs every time Steve thinks he’s crushing you with his arms or his hands. • You teach him slow dance, but also swing dance, which surprises him in a good way. • After long sessions of dancing during a week, Steve finally leads your steps on the improvised dance floor and enjoys himself, smoothing his moves. • These moments alone with him always take your breath away and this until the day of the assignment.
Bonus: • The mission is a wrap and Steve asks you to dance with him after a quick first report to Fury. • At the end of the slow, he dips you and his blue eyes stay connected to yours intensely. • When he pulls you up, Steve leans and attaches his lips to yours softly.
