Imagine Bucky, against all advice from the team, spending massive amounts of time with Tony... And finding he *really* likes it.

He suspects that Steve warned him away from Howard’s son out of a fear that the man will overstimulate him. It’s a valid concern, to be honest, but also one that’s founded in Steve’s overprotective assumption that Bucky needs to be carefully-monitored, and though Bucky absolutely appreciates Steve worrying about him, it’s not exactly necessary. Tony is overwhelming – that’s not debatable – but it’s a different kind of overwhelming than what Bucky is used to. Tony doesn’t shout, or hit, or try to harm him, he just talks. Sitting in his lab is almost calming, in a way he can’t entirely explain.

It has something to do, he thinks, with the fact that Tony doesn’t expect him to carry the conversation. Left to his own devices, Tony can cover every angle of a debate all on his own, and all Bucky has to do is sit quietly and let him work himself up and argue himself down. Tony loves his arm - and that, at first, makes Bucky uncomfortable - but he respects Bucky’s boundaries and admires it from afar. Of course, he complains sometimes that he’s not allowed to crack it open and get a better look at the tech (“Looks like it might possibly be more advanced than anything I could dream up. Possibly,” he says once), but at the first sign of discomfort from Bucky, he backs off.

"It’s because I get it," he says at one point. "Well, kind of. Wake up in the middle of nowhere with someone digging around in your body, putting a giant hunk of metal where you don’t want one -" and he trails off when he realizes that both he and Bucky have started shaking, but a few wall-punches later he stops his perpetual fidgeting long enough to sink into a chair facing Bucky. “I’ve been there. It’s awful. And you had it a lot worse than me, but you’re still here. Still alive. Good for you.”

After that, Bucky spends more time in the lab, content to sit and listen, or to help Tony with whatever project he’s working on (“Hold this, Barnes, just hold this for a second, I’m onto something here, this is gonna revolutionize robotics as we know it, I’m such a genius -“). Sometimes, Tony offers to do outlandish things to the arm (“Lasers, Barnes, you’re really missing out on an opportunity here -“) but mostly, they just…exist in the same room. And when just about everyone else’s demands on Bucky’s time are emotionally exhausting, it’s nice to have the chance to recharge.

(Besides, he thinks, Steve’s mistrust of Tony has nothing to do with Bucky and a lot to do with some private disagreement that the two of them have never quite resolved.)

Rather than teaching adaptive functioning skills to change dangerous behaviors, aversive electric shock causes only great suffering, pain and trauma. At best, the shocks temporarily repress behaviors by using fear to control residents. That is not treatment. That is torture, as Disability Rights International argued in its damning investigative report on Rotenberg’s practices.

Lydia Brown, "It’s illegal to torture prisoners and animals, but not disabled people"

yes, electric shock “treatment” is used against autistic people. this article by the fantastic Lydia Brown is important but graphically describes torture and abuse by medical practitioners against autistic people. consider this a content warning.

Imagine Bucky NOT being ashamed of his arm. He loves the strength it provides him, and sees it as small recompense for what Hydra took from him. He can protect the people he loves with that arm, but it's not all violence. It can tear through metal, sure, but it can also softly pet Beast Kitty's chin until she purrs happily. He can run a finger down Sam's spine so gently it makes Sam shiver. His arm gives him options most people don't have, and after having no choices for so long, he loves it.

to be fair, it takes him a long time to get there. at first, he hates it; he remembers waking up with people hovering over him and pain and metal where his arm should have been, and out of all the awful things that happened during the war and his time as the winter soldier, that’s one of the ones that haunt his nightmares the most.

he also hates it because of the things he was forced to do with it; his arm has committed nothing but violence and it’s caused more pain and suffering than he wants to think about.

at first, he actively avoids using it, because he’s tired of using it to hurt people.

he doesn’t really start to think of it as a positive thing until he uses it during a rescue mission, to save civilians who are trapped under the rubble of a fallen building. with the arm, he can move chunks of rubble that even steve can’t budge, and he saves the lives of five people that day.

after that, he notices the little things he can use it for. he can open any jar in the cupboard, even when darcy has glued her mod podge shut again and even thor can’t open it. he doesn’t need an oven mitt to grab a hot pot off the stove when he’s helping clint cook. he can lift the couch with one hand and vacuum underneath it with the other.

he has a long talk with natasha about what it means to be unmade and the measures she’s taken to rebuild her life in the aftermath, and she quietly admits that she’s never talked about this to anyone but clint, and never in such detail. she tells him that he can’t change what they did to him, and she can’t change what they did to her; all either of them can do is make choices in the here and now, and remembering that helps her. bucky can’t decide if it upsets him or comforts him at first, but he thinks about it a lot.

it takes him a long time to get there, but eventually he decides that the most important thing about his arm is how he chooses to use it.

part i

On their way down, Tony tells Pepper what he knows.

She’s gratifyingly horror-struck by the few details he has, and by the time they reach the lobby she’s pulling her suitcase along hooked in the crook of her arm so she can flick her fingers across the surface of her tablet, already on the attack. It gives Tony a perverse sense of pleasure.

The valet is loading their bags into the car when Bruce calls back.

“Hey, Bruce, gimme a sec, we’re getting in the car now,” he says, pulling open the door and waiting as Pepper slides in, his shoulders hunched in an effort to keep the damp chill off his neck. The fog’s gotten pretty heavy; he hopes it won’t interfere with take off.

He ducks into the car and swings the tablet around, propping it up on his knees. Bruce is waiting with the corner of his thumb between his teeth, set against the bright pink of the walls in Hulk’s specially-made room.

“You all set?” Tony asks.

Bruce nods and draws his hand away from his mouth, settles his arm over the other at his waist in a kind of self-hug. “Tell me.”

anonymous prompt: jim being terrified of doctors and bones doesn't realise it's genuine fear so he makes the hypos as painful as pos and just passes of his shaking for adrenaline or something but in reality he's barely holding it together because bones is just making him more terrifedof doctors and hospital bc he always got told hypos shouldnt hurt and so he thinks bones is doing it bc he hates him and whnever he has a physical, he locks himself in his rooms bc hes terrified and he gets flashbacks to after tarsus

Contrary to popular belief, Jim was not the one to latch onto Bones the minute he sat down in the shuttle to California. He wasn’t the one who decided they would be each other’s best friends and do everything together and turn themselves into halves of a whole. Sure, he’d entertained the notion for all of ten minutes, mind racing as he imagined all they could be together and all they could do, until McCoy - already christened ‘Bones’ - asked him what track he was going for and told Jim he was already a doctor and just needed the xeno-shit to go into space.
