Plot: When your son finds out the truth about Santa, you’re worried the magic of Christmas has been ruined. Bucky takes it in his hands to amend this.
Warnings: CHRISTMAS FLUFFF so sweet it’ll make your teeth rot, Children are assholes, but Buck is a doll💕, language (because it’s me, obviously), I guess like .2 seconds of angst? pietro x reader that you’ll miss if you blink
A/N: This really got away from me.I hope it makes up for the heart-wrenching angst from yesterday lolDad!Bucky is the best Bucky and StepDad!Bucky makes my heart melt! Piet is Pietro’s kid (obviously) cuz Reader apparently has got it bad for blue-eyed bad boys (I blame you, @sergeantjamesbarnes107th ) If you don’t like Pietro, just pretend it isn’t him lol (GIFS are not mine, they’re never mine lol)
“Children are assholes.” You announce as you walk into the compound common room, cradling your little boy in your arms. When you’re greeted by looks of pure confusion, you elaborate. “Who the hell tells a six-year-old that Santa isn’t real? Just who is that evil?” You hiss as you feel Piet slump against your shoulder, a tale-tell sign that all his wailing has worn him out. When his breathing evened out, you hand Wada her sleeping nephew. You set up a makeshift bed for him on the couch before setting him against the pillows and blankets. “Carl. Carl Evans is that evil.” You grunt.
“Y/N? You’ve lost me. Who is Carl Evans?” Steve asks after pausing the movie everyone had been watching before you had been paged by the daycare downstairs.
“Some ten-year-old twerp who thought it would be a good idea to tell my angel that Santa isn’t real. He’s been crying for the better part of an hour.” You sighed, brushing some hair out of your boy’s face. “Christmas is always hard enough as it is, he’s the only kid in the daycare who doesn’t have two parents. I’ve been doing this alone since his father died, but now it’s been completely ruined.”
You can never convince me that Ms.Potter didn’t confront Walburga at some point. Ms.Potter whos held 12 year old Sirius as he cries before going home for the summer. Ms.Potter whos healed broken bones and kissed bruises and screamed at Dumbledore for sending Sirius back to them for so long.
You can never convince me that Ms.Potter didn’t confront her. It probably happens at Hogwarts. They’re there for meetings, to go over their kids grades (of course, Ms.Potter is there for Sirius as well as James) and she sees Walburga across the room, sending pointed glares to Sirius before walking into the hallway.
And she just snaps. Because Sirius is standing across the room, laughing with James and holding Remus’s hand and the second he sees Walburga the life leaves his eyes and hes left standing there, looking so much like the broken first year boy she took in.
And she just flips out. Walburga is standing there in her black dress and deep red nails looking like shes going to formal event rather than a school meeting and Ms.Potter storms into the hallway after her, in a fury of warm sweaters and vanilla, and she just starts screaming at her about everything.
About Sirius showing up on her doorstep with a black eye and a broken nose. About Sirius refusing to stay with them for the summer because he needed to be home to protect his brother. About Sirius crying and thinking hes a failure because of how many times hes heard that from her.
And Walburga, the death eater who will defend her families reputation to the death, has absolutely nothing to say back.
After a few minutes Ms.Potters walks back into the hall, says her thank you’s to Dumbledore, all while pretending not to notice the whole hall watching her, and then she take her sons and her husband and they all go out to eat as a family.
