please imagine canon verse stucky where Bucky says "i'm sweet on you" to Steve when they are cuddling on the couch while they gently nuzzling their noses together
“Hey,” Bucky murmurs. “Hey, you.”
His arm rests on the back of the couch, Steve’s head lolling on his bicep. He fell asleep during the movie.
Bucky leans in to him, resting his forehead against Steve’s and nuzzling closer.
“I’m talkin’ to you,” he says when Steve doesn’t answer him.
Steve’s nose wrinkles. He grumbles wordlessly as he blinks sleepily up at Bucky.
His hum is questioning, but it’s about as petulant as a noise can get. He looks so incredibly put out about being woken up, irritable and tired and ready to fight because of it.
Bucky grins despite himself. Steve is always ready to fight.
When he doesn’t immediately answer, Steve bumps his face against Bucky’s, much harder than Bucky had done to him.
“Wha’?” He asks, garbled and short.
It’s adorable is what it is.
Bucky means to say, bedtime, princess.
Well, maybe not those precise words, but something like it. He had woken Steve up to get him to bed and now that Steve is irritable, it’s usually fun to goad him a little more. Steve is gorgeous when he’s mad; a bright angel of fury.
But that’s not what Bucky says. Instead, he finds himself reaching up to caress Steve’s cheekbone, his smile turning softer. Utterly fucking besotted.
“I’m so goddamn sweet on you,” he murmurs. “Y’know that?”
Steve blinks, the anger melting away. A blush blooms in his cheeks.
“Buck,” he protests, embarrassed. It’s a token protest and nothing more; he sounds too fucking pleased by the proclamation to mean it.
Bucky tries to kiss him, then, but it’s a failed attempt. They’re both smiling too much to do it properly.
