Part 1

Dating Bucky Barnes would include (Part 2!)…

  • He secretly loves it when you play with his hair
    • But he does not appreciate the French braids
    • Or the fishtails…
    • Or any type of braid
  • A lot of time is spent getting him up to speed on what he’s missed
  • He only remembers things that are important to him - like Steve - and anything with Hydra he doesn’t like and tries to block it out
  • So you binge watch all the movies he’s missed, TV shows, buy a few used history textbooks from some college kids, and try to make it a fun little game
    • “People have been fighting over oil? Wait - why does America keep invading other countries?”
    • “At first, it was just trying to mediate the situation but yeah, I guess you could say America kind of started pushing democracy on other countries. The 50s through the 80s was like the real bad shit, though so we can -”
    • “Was there ever like two months without some type of shit going down?”
    • “Uh…Christmas”
  • Steve and Sam are your absolute best friends
  • You like annoying Bucky just as much as Sam does and you two are constantly teaming up together
    • “WHY IS MY HAIR GREEN? ALL I DID WAS WASH MY FUCKING HAIR”
    • “STOP WITH THE DAMN MAGNETS
    • OH MY GOD WHY DO I HAVE A TATTOO OF A FUCKING FALCON! (Y/N)! WHAT DID I DO LAST NIGHT”
  • You and Steve tell each other literally almost everything
  • Steve regales tales of Bucky being a complete idiot and then all of the times Bucky swooped in to save Steve’s ass. You don’t think you had ever seen Steve look so happy before
  • You would make sure Steve was always in the loop with anything Bucky remembered
  • Bucky trusted Steve, of course he did, but he was also terrified
  • Bucky would just wake up in the middle of the night and shake you awake, eagerly telling you something he remembered
  • On other nights, he’d wake up screaming and you’d shush him, telling him it was all right, that you were there for him
  • Steve had the sneaking suspicion (cough-oh my god it’s so obvious-cough) you two would spend the rest of your lives together
    • He was already writing up his best man speech
  • You will never forget the day you and Bucky attended a fundraiser for an animal shelter
  • They had some of the dogs with them and you knew as soon as Bucky kept stealing glances at the brown and white pitbull, he’d be asking you at the end of the day if you’d consider letting him adopt him
  • Sure enough, he came to you right before the two of you were about to leave
    • “Oh, I knew I was forgetting something!”
  • You hand him the filled out adoption papers
    • “You just have to sign here and…right there and he’s all -”
  • Bucky was never one for PDA - only within the confines of the Tower - but damn it, he fucking loved you
  • He pulled you to him, bodies flush together, and smashed his lips against yours, grinning at you before snatching the papers and asking if he could use your back for a moment
    • He named the dog Barkspawn
    • You had gotten him way into Dragon Age - like way into it
  • Tony did not like the fact there was now a dog in the tower
    • “Barnes, you could have told me if you were going to bring a dog home”
    • “All (Y/N)’s idea”
  • Steve is so excited and is the dog’s personal gift-giver
    • Like, seriously, this dog has so many toys, ten different collars and matching leashes, and God forbid if Steve didn’t get him his own personal handmade bed
  • The two of you practically lived in Bucky’s room in the Tower
  • Your room was just storage and Nat’s hiding place
    • No one went into your room (besides Nat and Buck, of course)
    • And Nat got damn tired of Sam and Tony arguing over dinner every night
  • Most nights, Bucky just stays awake and watches you sleep
  • You talk a lot, mumbling incoherent things
  • He tends to love it when you shift and realize you’re not wrapped around him anymore and you reach out for him
    • “Ugh…Buck…”
    • “I’m here, doll. Just go back to sleep”
  • After your first night together, there almost isn’t a place where you two haven’t had sex
    • Bucky loves to mess with Tony
    • “Oh, I wouldn’t touch that if I were you. Hasn’t been cleaned yet”
    • “It looks perfectly fi - OH GOD”
  • Bucky tends to get in these moods, especially if he’s had a rough mission
  • He just comes home with this look on his face and you just know it’s going to be one of those nights
    • You like rough sex with him because it isn’t just rough for him
    • He’s still so passionate and he still always asks for permission, even when he knows you’ll always say yes
    • How the fuck can’t I say yes to this man? Has he not looked in the mirror lately or something?
  • He hates it when you go on solo missions
  • Bucky needs to know where you are at all times
    • If he loses you…
  • But you always come back in one piece - maybe a few broken bones and bruises but you’re smiling at him and planting a kiss to his cheek
    • “What? That’s all I get?”
    • “I need a shower, Buck. I’ve got dirt in places it should never be”
    • “You’re injured. I say you’re gonna need some help taking your clothes off…”
  • At times, Bucky can be a bit overbearing and you just need a break
    • Nat and Wanda are there for you all the way
    • “Why are we watching strippers?”
    • “They’re all hot!”
    • “But (Y/N) has a boyfriend who can get jealous very easily, Natasha”
    • “Just watch the movie!”
  • Bucky does not know what to do during that time
  • For a while, he sits around, pacing, trying to think of something he can do
  • You’re in good hands, he knows this, but there will always be that little part of him that can’t let go
  • So he takes Barkspawn on a walk around the city and actually enjoys it so much, he begins doing it everyday
  • You’d go with him on most days, smile so wide because Bucky isn’t trying to hide anymore and he’s beginning to smile at everyone and he just looks so happy
  • For a while, Bucky had a drinking problem
  • It was mainly at its peak before the two of you met and got together, but it stuck around
  • You discovered it when you were cleaning out his closet (he literally threw everything clean in there and that was it) and found the stash
  • You brought it up as gently as possible and he broke down again
    • “It doesn’t help…I just wanted to feel something, even a little buzz, just so I could…”
    • “Shh, Buck, it’s okay, you don’t -,”
    • “No, it’s not okay. I did it every night and then…then you came along and I…I felt something again, doll”
  • Fuck, you love this man
    • “You’re making it sound like it’s a bad thing”
    • “It was when my heart was poundin’ against my rib cage and you just kept on with that pretty little smile of yours, but I knew - or I thought I did - you…”
    • “And what? You don’t think I had the same reactions? Jesus, Buck, for a brilliant soldier you sure are dense”
  • Shit, he loves you
