1/ One of my softest Prompts (I have a notebook where I basically just throw every idea) is about that soulmate!AU. Everybody has such great first words. But not in this one. Tony has "Hi" written on the inside of his wrist. So, honestly, he's stopped hoping for the first one everyone says to him because it's such banal, comon thing to say. "Hi". No, but, honestly, his soulmate couldn't be less original???
2/ So, when, one day Bucky comes down to the workshop for the first time, clutching a mug of coffee whil Tony’s mumbling under his breath, cursing a bolt like every good engineer learns to do when they start working, and Bucky says “Hi”, at first Tony doesn’t even register the warm tingling spreading through his body from his wrist and snap back “You better have coffee or so help me…”
3/ The rest is unbelievably filthy curses and Bucky squawk and start giggling, calmly at first but it becomes hysterical very quickly. When Tony looks at him, now entirely too aware of the way his chest had opened like someone had lodged here and was there to stay, Bucky throw his head back and howl in laughter.
4. Holding the mug of coffee in one hand and the lifting up the hem of his shirt where words were sprawled, black against his skin, Bucky grinned at Tony. “You can’t even imagine the face my ma’ did when she read it the first time. And how useful you were at school to curse.” Tony snorts. Hard. Then huffed. But as soon as they look at each other, they start laughing together. Bucky told him, later, that he always tried to have coffee with him each time he went to meet someone new. Love you <3.
This is precious and hilarious at once!! Thank you so much love! <3<3<3
