Do you think bucky would be a Doctor Who fan
Hi, Nonny!!! Thank you so much for this ask!! Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. I definitely did not forget about it, in fact I’ve been thinking long and hard about the answer! So I decided to turn it into a drabble. :D Hope this is kind of fun and answers you question!
A yawn escaped your lips, raising one hand to stifle it while the other reached for a coffee mug. The past few had been late nights, not that you regretted it. Some things were worth losing sleep. Grabbing the freshly brewed pot, you poured the dark liquid into your mug followed by a splash of your favorite Hazelnut creamer. Inhaling the heavenly aroma, you took a sip as Tony entered the kitchen with an announcement to make.
“It seems that all of my carefully chosen and expensively purchased statues in the 5th floor garden have been defaced. Literally. Their faces have been removed. Anyone know anything about that? Hm?”
Tony’s eyes searched every face in the room, met with looks of confusion and head shakes of denial. Eyes wide, realization settled in your mind as you tried your best to keep your face neutral.
“Where’s RoboCop? Anyone seen him?” inquired the billionaire.
Steve gave him a look of disapproval at the nickname, but responded, “I think Bucky’s out for a run, but if he harbors a serious hate for statues, it’s news to me.”
Hiding the lower part of your face behind your coffee cup, you reached into the cupboard for a box of cereal. Fruity Pebbles poured followed by milk, you grabbed your bowl and headed to your room before you gave anything away. You may not have damaged the statues, but it was probably your fault.
Later that night, you poured the freshly-popped popcorn into a bowl and placed it on a tv tray along with two sodas before carrying it toward to the tv area. Bucky was already sprawled on the couch when you sat down beside him, grabbing the remote.
“Are you sure you want to continue our marathon watching? I mean, I know I kind of forced you into watching it, so if you don’t want to, I swear I’ll understand. If you don’t like it I won’t be mad.”
Bucky turned toward you, brow furrowed, “What do you mean ‘if I don’t like it’? We’ve made it this far, haven’t we? Two and half season, I think? And yeah, it was weird at first, but I’m starting to enjoy it. What makes you think I don’t like it?”
“Well….this morning, Tony mentioned there has been some…alterations…to some of his garden statues. Mainly the angels, from what I saw.”
Bucky’s face turned beet red, eyes wide. “So you know, then.”
“Yeah. I figured it out. But I didn’t rat you out! You could have told me if it scared you! I mean, ‘Blink’ is not for the faint-hearted, those Weeping Angels are…”
“…creepy beyond belief, I agree. And can you blame me? I took a walk after we finished that episode around 1am and there they were…staring with their unblinking eyes….I couldn’t look away, so I kind of…punched them.”
“You…punched them? The statues?”
“Yeah. Used ol’ lefty to get rid of those eyes…” Bucky said quietly, shuddering.
You bit your lip, trying not to laugh. You had been a Doctor Who fan for years, so it was fun to see the episodes you knew by heart seen through another’s eyes. You just never thought the metal-armed, Super Serum-infused, former-Winter Soldier would be scared of statues.
Placing a hand on his leg, you spoke calmly, “Bucky, it’s just pretend. The Weeping Angels are not real.”
“Oh, yeah? How do we know that? I mean, there are aliens on this show that are supposedly fictional but then the sky opened last year and you guys fought real, actual aliens!! So what makes you so sure?”
You slumped back on the couch.
“Huh. I guess you have a point. It’s a good thing you already took care of those angels then, huh?”
“Damn right,” he said proudly, puffing out his chest.
“And don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me,” you winked, snuggling into Bucky’s right side.
You smiled, pointing the remote at the tv to select the next episode.
“You’re sure you want to keep going then?”
“Positive. Besides, the angels are gone, right? Sally Sparrow and that video store guy took care of them.”
“Exactly! They’re gone. For a few seasons…” you said with a guilty grin.
Chuckling at the panic on his face, you pressed play, the drums and doo-wee-ooooo of the opening titles began while the TARDIS flew through space and time.
Thoughts? Comments? This was my first sort of Fandom crossover of sorts.
This was pretty fun. As you can tell I am a HUGE Doctor who fan,
although I’m behind one season don’t spoil me. I’m back from vacation and have a few fics almost ready to post! This is just me dipping a toe back in. I hope to have something new posted tomorrow. It’s sooooo great to be back in the land of reliable wifi! I’ve missed you guys.
I’m tagging my whole list, so let me know if you only want to be tagged for certain fics. I’ll try to keep it all straight. Also, if you haven’t seen Doctor Who, you should definitely remedy that! Or at least look up the Weeping Angels so you know what I’m talking about. :D
