Three times Bucky Barnes wanted to ask you out, and the time he finally did
The First Time: “You’re gonna do it this time.” Steve says assuringly, looking Bucky dead in the eyes. Steve’s spent the last half hour convincing him it’s finally time to bite the bullet and ask you out already. Partly because he knows how much Buck likes you and he wants his best friend to be happy, but mainly because you’re all he talks about and its getting really annoying.”I’m gonna ask y/n out.” Bucky mutters to himself, nodding his head rapidly. He glances over Steve’s shoulder and the air is knocked straight from his lungs. You’re just wearing a loose sweatshirt and workout shorts, you’ve been training with Nat and Peter the entire day, but you still manage to take his breath away. “I can’t do this. She’s one hundred percent out of my league” Bucky sighs, letting his head fall in his hands. Steve groans and runs his fingers through his hair, trying to think of someway to just make him go for it already. “Hey y/n!” Steve calls, pulling your attention away from the sandwich you’ve begun to make in the kitchen, “Bucky needs to ask you something.” And with that, he darts off down the hallway, leaving you and Bucky alone. “What’s the deal Barnes?” you ask, smiling as you cut the sandwich in half. He stumbles up to you, tripping over thin air. He fiddles with the ends of his hair and refuses to meet your eyes. His cheeks become flushed and heated as you wait for the question he’s supposed to be asking. “So I was wondering,” he blurts loudly, practically shouting even though he’s right next to you, “I was, um, just kinda, er, wondering if you would, possibly maybe kind of sorta, uh…” He stutters, hands shoved in his pockets while his feet shift awkwardly. “Bucky,” you laugh, “just say it already. You can tell me anything, you know that.” And it was in that moment that he realized, he can’t tell you anything. You and him have grown so close, as in sharing bad breakup stories, watching scary movies late at night and yelling at the tv, falling asleep in each other’s rooms because you stay up talking so late close. He would give anything to keep that forever. And if he asks you out and you say no…it would ruin everything. “I was just gonna ask if I could have half of that sandwich.” he sighs reluctantly, putting on a fake smile. You laugh, relief flooding your expression. “For a second there I thought it was something serious.” you grin, handing him half of the sandwich before taking a bite of your own. His gaze drops as he nibbles on the bread, his appetite gone. “Nope…nothing serious.”
The Second Time: “So I’ll just keep my hands on your waist.” Bucky says, guiding you across the dance floor that’s really just the mats of the training room. Both in your socks, you try the best you can not to step on his feet, but grace has never been your strong suit. “I’m never going to learn how to slow dance in time for this United Nations gala tonight!” you groan, tossing your hands in the air and pulling away from Bucky. He strides over to the record player that’s blasting 40′s music and lifts the needle from the turntable, the music cutting off abruptly. “Oh please y/n.” Bucky laughs, placing his hands back on your waist, “If you can learn to use a bow and arrow lethally in a half hour, you can learn to slow dance. You just have to…feel it.” He starts to sway gently to a song he’s begun to hum. “That’s just it Bucky. I don’t know how to ‘feel it’. You don’t have to feel anything to shoot an arrow, you just have to follow your instincts.” you sigh, following his slow footsteps in light turns. He pulls you closer against him, repeating the same 5 steps and humming the same song until you’ve begun to hum along with him. “Faster.” he says, puling you even closer and quickening his pace before you can protest. Your grip on his shoulders tighten as you both begin to glide across the room. You don’t give the moves any thought, they’re now engraved in your memory. “1-2-3, 4-5-6, 3-2-1,4-5-6″ you mutter over and over again, keeping you eyes locked on his. Bucky feels a tickled laugh start to rise in his chest at the look of sheer concentration in your expression. Dancing isn’t about thinking, it’s about having fun. Bucky has wanted to teach you how to slow dance forever, of course he was hoping it would be in preparation for a date with him, not a stuffy UN gala that Tony insisted you go to. “It’s just to leave a good impression” he’d told you when you asked him why you had to be the one to go, “You’re pretty and young and whatnot, it’ll make us look good.” So Bucky settled for teaching you to dance instead. “Faster.” he mumbles so low you can barely hear him before he starts to move even quicker. His moves are graceful and sharp, never missing a beat. “1-2-3, 4-5-6, 7…I mean 3-5…no that’s not-” and before you can think of what comes next, your legs tangle in his and you both come crashing to the ground. He lands on his back with a thud, the mats breaking both your falls. You land squarely on top of him, bracing your hands against his chest before your head can bang against his. “Ughhhh.” you groan in frustration, pushing yourself up so your body still sits on his waist You ball up his shirt in your hands, the scratchy fabric itching your palms. “Why can’t I do this!” you cry, and without realizing what you’re doing, you’ve torn his nice button up shirt completely in half, exposing the tight t-shirt underneath. Your eyes meet his, and for a split second you think he’ll be upset, but theres a twinkle in his eyes and a smile takes over his expression. “I never liked the shirt anyways.” he says in all seriousness before you both shout with laughter, the ridiculousness of the situation humoring you both. You let your head drop as you cover your face with your hands. “I’m sorry Buck.” you laugh, dropping the torn fabric. He brushes your hair behind your ears and gently tugs your hands away from your face, still smiling. You shoot him your most apologetic look and bite your bottom lip, shaking your head. It’s in that moment that the words he’s held back for so long nearly escape his lips. He could ask you right now to go out with him, and you could say yes, and you could spend the rest of the day learning how to slow dance. Or you could say no. And the fear of that split second of uncertainty, the moment where you have to decide what your answer will be, is enough to keep Bucky from asking at all. “Let’s keep going.” he says instead, and you do.

Series: Summer Camp AU (High School AU)
Notes: No one has any powers
Summers/Wade Wilson, Tony Stark/Pepper Potts, Tony Masters/Sandi Brandenberg
Scene Summary: Nate and Wade attend football tryouts … or at least, that’s how it starts. Takes place after “A Conference of Educators”.
Warnings: This is a write and
post adventure. Editing … I laugh in the face of editing, hahahahahaha! Unreliable narration. Accept it. I know literally nothing about either football or cheerleading. Absolutely nothing. NOTHING. Our coach in high school repeated everything at least three times in three different ways … probably because none of us were paying attention.
civil war au where everything is the same except when the winter solider is activated instead of killing people he starts speaking in spanish and trying to dance with people like buzz when his settings get messed up in toy story three
