NO BUT IMAGINE bucky turning himself in and spending a few weeks in the hospital as (what’s left of) SHIELD scientists and doctors run tests on him and try to debrief him

and he has long days where he’s just sitting in his hospital room reading books steve has left him and sam starts coming to see him and talking to him and using his VA counseling skills to try to make him feel better

and bucky finally opening up to sam and crying and saying how he’s done so many things that he regrets and he wasn’t even able to stop himself and how he doesn’t know if he can live with the things he’s done and sam puts his hand on his arm and says “you’re okay. if we didn’t make choices we ended up regretting we wouldn’t be human.” and bucky grab’s sam’s hand because the fact that sam KNOWS he’s human is enough for him to keep going another day
