What are some of the meanings of Ricardo's other tattoos?
The two you see most often are the pretty self explaining ones of his dimension code on his collarbone, and the chemical formula for ethanol on his right shoulder. He also has a giraffe on the inside of his right ankle because they are his favourite animal (he got this one after meeting Unity, so take from that as you will). After meeting Lob he gets an orange and a tiger lily on his left thigh in memory of their relationship. Last but certainly not least you have his massive back piece that was self designed and done by a Tattoo Artist Rick at the citadel. That one seems to be a stylized map of a particular chunk of the multiverse that’s only interpretable by other Ricks. If it’s any hint as to what it is, the other Ricks at the citadel all think he is disgustingly sappy for having it. ;)
asking you to give him a haircut, showing you a picture of him in the 40’s in
his uniform and getting emotional. (But still giving him the haircut)
A/N: this is my
idea. Btw, I just spent like 5 minutes yelling at my screen “Oh yeah,
because you know. Still gotta give him a haircut after I get done crying. Yeah,
that’s relevant. Wow. Fucking wow. I’m such a dork.” NO LIE. NO FRICKEN
LIE. YOU ALL SHOULD BE FUCKIN HAPPY. XD

You were seated
at Steve’s kitchen table, listening to the record you had put on after Steve
taught you how to use the player. You were hanging out with him and Bucky,
sharing dinner and playing some old card games. You were watching Steve as he
drew a card and sighed. He caught your gaze and you immediately said.
even think about it, Steven Grant.”
Steve gave a
smile and leaned back, laying down his cards.
You gawked at
his suit. Three tens and two aces. Bucky threw his cards down.
You busted out
laughing and bragged to Steve, laying your cards down.
aces and three kings.”
Steve gawked at
you and you danced in your seat. Bucky had a two, two fours, and two queens.
Bucky glared at both of you and stated.
“I used to
be the king of 5 card draw. What the hell.”
Bucky. Guess you lost your touch.”
You grinned and
Steve rolled his eyes and got up.
to play with either of you.”
haven’t even played Bullshit yet!”
Steve rolled his
eyes and Bucky gawked at you.
“We are not
playing that game.”
you always fucking win!”
You giggled and
Bucky grinned at you. Steve walked away, calling.
to bed, you two tire me out. Bucky, behave.”
him off and you called.
seven pm but night anyways.”
Bucky sighed and
you grabbed the deck, shuffled, and then put them away. Bucky then proceeded to
cut my hair?”
You looked up at
Bucky, his blue eyes trained on you. You shrugged and agreed.
‘I guess. What
kind of hair style do you want?“
Bucky pulled out
a picture from his pocket and handed it to you. You frowned a bit but almost
spit out your drink when you saw the picture. It was a black and white picture
of Bucky before he had left for war. Clad in his uniform, wearing a handsome
smile, he had his arm wrapped around a scrawny Steve. You felt an emotion well
into your heart and tears pricked your eyes.
You put a hand
over your mouth and looked up, to the left. You were nostalgic, shocked but
honored. Bucky got up and hugged you. You said quietly.
That was just…”
You laughed and
wiped your eyes, pulling back and patted his shoulder.
so handsome, James.”
genuinely and you cleared your throat. You put the picture up on the sill in
front of the sink and stated.
“Go get your
shampoo, conditioner, comb, and the hair scissors. Don’t forget a towel.”
and walked to the bathroom. You grabbed a computer chair (Why does Steve even
have one if he doesn’t even know wtf the internet is?) and locked the wheels so
he wouldn’t roll away. You pumped the lever, bringing the chair high and Bucky
walked in, setting the required things on the counter. You smiled softly and
your jacket. I don’t want to get it wet.”
He did as told
and sat in the chair. You steadied him and gently; carefully leaned him back.
You turned on the water and waited for it to get hot. Bucky said, watching you.
when I first got my haircut for the army.”
You chuckled and
asked, turning on the sprayer and praying his hair carefully, running your
fingers through the soft locks.
you nervous? Scared they were going to cut an ear off or make you bald?”
You giggled and
looked at his picture. Bucky watched you and asked quietly.
cry…because my picture reminded you of something or someone?”
You looked at Bucky
and smiled softly, shaking your head no and mouthing 'no.’
because it made me think of how proud of you I am.”
his eyes a bit and asked.
proud of me? But…why?”
you fought for the safety of this country. It almost cost you your life. I know
you did a lot of crazy shit when HYDRA got you…but it wasn’t your
You lathered his
shampoo into his hair and carefully massaged the soap into his scalp. You
laughed a bit.
“I wish I
could be that brave. My grandpa was in the 107th.”
You washed out
the shampoo and squirted conditioner into your palm. Bucky was watching you, an
emotion in his eyes that you couldn’t recognize and continued.
“He was a sergeant,
one of the best. He would tell me stories about how Steve and you would
infiltrate the HYDRA bases, how he was such a womanizer back into eh day.”
You chuckled and
said, letting the conditioner soak in his hair a bit.
to let the conditioner set in your hair for about five minutes. Anyways, when I
was bullied in high school and came home crying. My grandpa would look at me
and say 'Now you listen here, doll. If
any of them little fuckers try to make you cry, you make them cry. Punch them
in the nose, drink a beer, and call it a day. Go dance with your lady friends,
break men’s necks. You’re too pretty for them tears to stain your face.’”
You and Buck
laughed and you continued.
would get angry or throw a fit, Grandpa would cough and say ’Ok, I know
you’re pissed off but you really gotta listen to this, lil lady.’ I would
turn to him and sass. 'What? What do I need to listen to?’ he would turn
to me and say. 'Remember how I told you that Mr. Rogers had a lady friend
named Peggy?’ "Yes, sir?’ he would just deadpan and glare at me and
say 'You are really starting to remind me of her. She was a find dame, but
goddamn did she scare the hell out of me.’”
and you washed the conditioner out. You sat him up and shook a towel into his
remind me of my grandpa sometimes.”
Bucky looked up
at you and asked.
good man…but you just fail to see it.”
Bucky looked up
at you, his blue eyes twinkling and he whispered, hugging you.
You patted his
head and ran his comb through the damp locks. Bucky acknowledged.
you’re the only person I allow to call me James.”
noticed that. Hope I don’t make the 'Kid from Brooklyn’ mad.”
Bucky smiled and
over it, the punk. Anyways, want to know why?”
You looked down
at him, cutting his bangs and asked.
that’s the name the people I love the most call me by.”
You paused and
looked down at him and smirked.
trying to flirt with me?”
trying? Dame, I think I just won you over.”
You laughed and
punched his metal shoulder.
too cocky, James. Remember, I’m cutting your hair.”
That shut him
up. You looked back at his picture and asked.
do you want your bangs? Your hair is slicked back in this picture so I can’t
He put a hand up
“Can I get
them right to my eyelids?”
know, can you?”
Bucky glared up
at you and you giggled. He sighed and rolled his blue eyes.
You gave a two-finger
salute and cut his bangs. You cut the sides of his hair short, smiling and
ruffled his hair to get any pieces out. You jumped and yelped when a voice
You threw your
shoe at him and yelled.
do that, you fuddy duddy, creepy, meatball!”
You punched his
stomach and Steve laughed out, holding his stomach. You put your hands on your
hips, one coming up to your mouth and you close your eyes. You glowered.
Grant Rogers! I’m about two seconds from letting you have it. Sit down.”
Steve bit his
lip, snorting and Bucky quirked an eyebrow up at you. Steve said.
“I love it
when you get scared. You speak like an old forties gal.”
“You call me an old lady? Look who’s talking,
and you dried his hair. You complimented, blushing a little.
do look good.”
and thanked, kissing your cheek.
sleep so what are we going to do till I do?”
You smiled and
stated, holding up a fist.
“Want me to
help you fall asleep? I got just the remedy.”
Steve rolled his
eyes and Bucky smirked.
You’re supposed to be on my side!”
Steve, James is my bodyguard.”
“Oh, so she
gets to call you James and I don’t?”
“Cry me a
river, build me a bridge, and get over it.”
You stated. Oh
yeah, super soldier got mad. Bucky held you into his side and shrugged.
