“You’ve come to a custody agreement on your own?” The judge put on her glasses as she looked over the mountain of paperwork in front of her.
“Yes your honor.” You and Bucky both nodded as you waited for her words.
“It all looks good to me.” She looked at the both of you over the top of her bifocals. “And your property?”
“We divided it without dispute.” You were trying to remain calm as your whole life was being split down the middle in a stuffy courtroom. It didn’t seem fair. You got the house and your car and a guarantee of child support every month. But none of that would replace the feeling of losing your husband.
“That’s true, Mr. Barnes?” She turned her gaze to Bucky.
“That’s true.” He nodded, his hands folded in front of his body.
“Then I see no need to delay. Let’s move on through all of this and we’ll grant the divorce.” Your heart sank with her words. So this was it.
“You know what!? Fuck you!” That’s the last thing I said before Shawn looked back at me, walked out and slammed the door to our apartment.
*3 Days Before*
“Dammit Y/N! Why are you bitching so much?! Fucking seriously, what is your problem?”
“Huh. You know what Shawn, never mind. All I’ve wanted to do is get out of this fucking apartment, go out with you! But if all you want to do is sit, then that’s fine.”
“I’m not just sitting. I’m writing for my next album and the distractions aren’t helping.”
“So I’m a distraction?”
“No, I didn’t mean-*sigh*, I just meant that I’m really stressed out and-”
“Shawn, save your breath. I’ll be upstairs.”
“Why are you dragging this out? I have to work!” he said standing up off the couch.
“Fine. Then get back to your work.” After I said that, I went up the stairs and cried on our bed.
*The Next Day*
“Dude, all we’ve been doing is fighting. One minute she’s happy and giddy and the next she’s the Godzilla of girlfriends.”
“That’s just girls, man. Trust me, Madison is the same way. Especially around that God forsaken time,” Jack G said over the phone. “You still love her right?”
“Of course. It’s just that sometimes, it gets to be too much. Makes me think if all of this would be easier if I weren’t in a relationship right now.”
“Yeah I get that. Hey, I gotta go, but tell me how it all works out.”
“Alright man, I will. Bye.”
For the past few weeks, Shawn an I have been at major odds. It’s been really past these past few days. I can’t help but think that a lot of it is my fault, but I can’t control it. If we could just stop arguing long enough for me to explain, that would be great. But, like other things, I didn’t get my way tonight.
We’ve been screaming at each other for over 2 hours now. I forgot what he even said, but when I saw him start to walk out on me,
“You know what?! Fuck you!” And before I knew it, the door slammed with Shawn on the other side.
It’s been 2 hours since he left and after a lot of thinking, I realized I needed to call him. I didn’t want to do this over the phone, but we don’t always get what we want.
About 5 minutes later, I finally fell asleep.
I couldn’t take it anymore, I had to walk out before I said or did something I could never forgive myself for. I got in my car and threw my phone somewhere unknown. I drove until I found an over look halfway up a mountain. It looked out over a river and I just walked around for hours and thought of her. The heavy rain brought back why I was so in love. Fuck, I need to call her before it’s too late.
I walked back to my car and got in.
I started up my car and searched for my phone. I pulled away from the outlook and as I was about to call her, I saw that I had a voicemail.
“Hey. It’s me. Look I know you’re mad at me and stressed out. And I also know I haven’t made that easier either. Listen, I really didn’t want to do this over the phone, but I have to tell you before, who knows.”
I was on the corkscrew road, heading down the mountain when she said the words.
“Shawn, I’m pregnant and I wanted you to know before whatever is happening with us gets worse-”
I jolted out of my sleep and instantly searched for Shawn on my left. When my brain registered that he wasn’t there, I checked my phone. Nothing. It’s 2:17 a.m and I have a feeling that I can’t shake.
I finally woke up and realized my head was bleeding. I looked around and noticed my car filling up with water.
When I saw how fast it was filling up, I knew I had to get out.
I was starting to get scared when I remembered what Y/N said. As the car filled up faster and faster, I accepted the fact that I would never get to tell her I love her again. Never hold her. Kiss her. Or meet our child. This can’t be the end. Not my end.
“Fuck! God, please have mercy! Please! Somebody help me!”-
“AHHH! Somebody help her!”
“Oh my god! What is she doing?!”
Those were the words I heard as I looked out into the horizon. I can’t believe this is happening, but it’s for him. It’s always been about him. He left me and now I have nothing.
You would think that I would want to protect my baby, but what baby? She’s gone too. I’m all alone and I would give anything to see him again. To meet her. To fall into his arms one last time. Now I can. Forever
Scene:You’re lying there, tossing and turning because not a single position is comfortable. Eventually you lay on your back, but something’s wrong. It felt like someone was sitting on your chest, pinning your whole body down. Your eyes shoot open, but your whole body is stiff and it refuses to move, struggling to get a decent inhale of the cold night air, your conscience internally screaming at your body to move just a little. Just enough to wake your partner next to you. Tears slowly start to form and you’re scared of being stuck like this, but the fear only digs its nails further into your psyche when out in the corner of your eye you see this figure standing in the doorway. You can’t make out who it is, its face is completely blacked out, until it smiles. The tears now streaming down your face and all you want to do is move. When it felt like you were about to pass out from the lack of oxygen, the weight that was on your whole body was gone and so was the figure. You gasp loudly and began to sob even louder, waking your partner next to you.
You had been in Volterra, Italy for about 2 months and have been mostly kept in yours and Caius’s room, which made you wonder if he really cared for you. If he did surely he wouldn’t let you die from boredom.. would he?
Just then you heard the door swing open and Jane waltzed in carrying a tray with a gourmet meal, which was one of the good things about this place. “I thought Caius would be bringing my food from now on” Jane continued to walk over to the small table under the window over looking the beautiful mountains setting down the silver tray, "He was but something came up, I am supposed to stay here with you until he says otherwise" She stood by the door staring off out the window. "well nice to finally meet you, Jane" her head snapped at your direction she had the tiniest smirk you had ever seen, “And you Y/N, Now eat”
In which I have transcribed all 18 memories from Breath of the Wild
Memory 1: Subdued Ceremony
Zelda: Hero of Hyrule, chosen by the sword that seals the darkness… you have shown unflinching bravery and skill in the face of darkness and adversity. And have proven yourself worthy by the blessings of the Goddess Hylia. Whether skyward bound, adrift in time, or steeped in the glowing embers of twilight. The sacred blade is forever bound to the soul of the Hero. We pray for your protection… and we hope that—that the two of you will grow stronger together as one. (Hand down, breath, hand up). Forged in the long distant past… Daruk:Gee, this is uplifting. She’s making it sound as if we already lost. Revali: Wasn’t this your idea? You’re the one who wanted to designate the appointed knight with all the ceremonial pomp, grandeur, and nonsense we could muster…. And if you ask me, the whole thing does seem to be overkill. I think I’m on the same page as the Princess regarding this… this boy. Urbosa: Oh give it a rest. That boy is a living reminder of her own failures. Well, at least that’s how the princess sees him.
Summary: After the Avenger’s falling out, you were put in charge of putting Bucky together. Under King T’Challa’s orders, you were given a month’s time to create a new arm while simultaneously figure out how to get the triggering memories of his past out of his mind. As the time goes by, you found yourself confiding in him, despite his frozen state.
A/N: This one’s a bit short, kinda filler-ish, but building up for the next chapter will hopefully be up soon. Expect someone to make their first appearance in the next part!
Summary:What do you do after accidentally catching the government seemingly teaming up with a dangerous prisoner ? Will you take matters into your own hands to try saving those who will be put in danger,or will you fall back to keep your own life secure ?
Warnings: swearing , angst, drama , that’s it for now 😜
Pairings:(steve rogers x reader ) ( avengers x reader)( bucky Barnes x reader ) ( team cap x reader )
“Is there any truth behind her words?” I ask wanda as we watch through the two way door . Although I don’t put it past Ross to try something , what if that something is her? What if he sent her here to break us ? Gain our trust just so he can have an in to take Bucky?
“ she is telling the truth . All I can Hear from her mind is about Bucky , and us , and she keeps repeating about Ross being a giant … dicksucker..” wanda giggles as she announces y/n’s thoughts .
“ so we can trust her ?”
“ steve , by the sounds of it this girl is just as determined to save Bucky as you. She set on saving all of us actually. Her thoughts and actions are pure .”
I nod in response, weighing my options . The choice clear when I hear her next words
“besides, who else is going to stand up for Bucky Barnes ?”
Me that’s who. I slide the wall open , replying to her ,
“that would be me ma'am .”
She whips around when I speak , her eyes widening and lips parting in shock . I have to admit , she’s beautiful. I don’t know if it’s her physical appearance that draws me to her , or her morals and how she views Bucky. But this crazy woman flew here just to protect my bestfriend , to protect all of us . Maybe I should have a little more faith in people .
Captain America is fucking staring at me . I know I should be intimidated but fuck, it’s kinda hot . How is one person so attractive? It should be against the laws of nature .
His eyes don’t leave you as he comes towards you and the King , his face set with no emotion.
“ I take it you believe our Visitor ?” Tchalla asks
“ wanda says her intentions are pure .its not a set ups.”
Your voice seems to startle them ,
“ you’re damn right they are pure . Why would I ever-”
“ it was just a precaution y/n. We had a feeling the time would come when Ross would try to find them here .” Tchalla calmly states .
“but what now ? I warned you but what are you going to do ?” Your question hangs in the air for a few moments while the two men have a weird, silent conversation.
“you are to stay here until further notice , I will have the airlines database wiped to protect your identidy. Once Ross learns we knew of his plan, he will trace every way we could of been informed. You shall be safe y/b , that is a promise ” the king says announces and you can’t help but smile at his sincerity.
“thank you your highness.”
“ please, call me tchalla for now on. You’re going to be with us for a while y/n, you should be comfortable. Now, I have a few things to set up so Captain Rogers will escort you around . I’ll be seeing you later .” He smiles before he leaves you alone with the captain , and your nerves get even worse .
“ thank you. ” his words catch you by surprise
“don’t thank me until after this is over and you guys are safe Captain Rog-.”
“ steve . ” he corrects you with a shy smile .
You look down , hoping to hide your forming blush
“ then call me y/n . So how about you show me around the secret tunnels ?” You playfully elbow him , giggling as a chuckle escapes him.
“ follow me . ”
And you did , you followed him behind the two way wall, almost knocking over wanda maximoff as you enter
“ oh my god I’m so sorry! ” your hands are holding on to her to try and keep her balanced . Her laugh is soft and sweet, just as her accent is
“ i shouldn’t of been creeping around the corner it’s my fault . I’m wanda -”
“ I know! You are incredible ! Oh I- I don’t mean to fan girl, but holy crap!” You can’t believe yourself , you had to contain yourself when you saw steve, but wanda pushed you past the limit . Steve let’s out a loud laugh as wanda pulls you into a surprising hug .
“I’m flattered , it’s nice to have someone not see me as the enemy .”
Her smile falters as she speaks, and you pull her into another hug .
“ you are a hero , in every sense of the word. ” when you release her she grabs onto your hand with a bright smile
“I think we are going to get along very well .” You beam a wide smile at her words and squeeze her hand . She doesn’t let go, just pulls you along with her and steve as they begin walking down the hall.
Most of the rooms in this building have two way walls, which is understandable . The secret ways lead to an underground garage and road, taking you out to the edge of the city ,to the jungle parts of wakanda . Your eyes go wide as you stare out the window of the car, you are so distracted by the scenery you don’t notice when you stop , and barely register being loaded onto a helicopter. Where the hell are we going ?
“ it’s not much farther , wait until you see the view !” Wanda gushes as you lift off . And damn, was she right . You’re being flown over the millions of beautiful trees and miles of land until you finally see where you’re being taken .
“ YOU LIVE IN A GIANT CAT?!?” Your outburst doesn’t seen to surprise them, they just smile in response.
“ technically, it’s a giant panther .” Steve retorts with a smirk . Holy mother of balls . It’s a cat carved into a freaking mountain in the middle of no where . THIS IS SO COOL.
You feel wanda squeeze your hand again , her smile mimicking yours . When you land they immediately begin showing you around, you’re shown where the others stay , the labs , the entertainment room& training center . Then the kitchen level, which blows your mind . You pull wanda with you as you bolt towards the back wall which was entirely made of glass, looking over the mountains and below .
“ this is breathtaking .” You whisper as you take it all in .
“ so this is the girl that flew across the world to save rink cop. How does he get all the pretty ones ?” A new voice hits your ears . Wanda releases your hand and giggles as you turn to face the new person . You smile when you see him and a few others have joined the room.
“ uh- hii.” You awkwardly wave . There’s no way I’m hiding this blush , Sam Wilson just called me pretty! Sam Wilson , Clint Barton, and Scott Lang are standing infront of you each sporting a different smiles .
The introductions are smooth, not awkward in anyway . You instantly click with all of them actually , laughing with them and talking like it wasn’t a weird circumstance. You tell them about your life, and learn of theirs before everything happened , the only hesitant one is steve ; but you figure it’s just because he’s so protective of Bucky and his friends .Wanda stays by your side the entire time ,she reminds you so much of kit that it makes you miss her even More.
“ steve , is there anyway I can make a call ? Just to let kit know I’m alive . I left without telling her anything and she may think I’m dead and I really don’t want her going through my -”
“ it has to be quick .” He says handing you a small flip phone . You dial her number and release a sigh when her voice answers .
“ I have to make this fast Kit , I’m okay but I don’t know when I’ll be home. So don’t worry about the letters-”
“ I already looked for them in your underwear drawer, i didn’t know if - anyway you might want to hide your vibrator better because honestly the underwear drawer is a little cliche. -”
“ dude , seriously? Get out of my crap kit and put it back! We aren’t talking about this right nows. I have to go, but I love you . Take care of my dog or I’ll kill you. ”
Her laugh makes your heart clench ,
“ I miss you y/n . Be safe . I love you . ”
“ I love you more.” You don’t realize that tears are slipping from your eyes until after you hang up the phone . Breathe .
Clint pulls you into a hug,letting you bury your face in the crook of his neck as you try to calm down
“you did the right thing ya know? Not getting her involved . The more people
“ the more danger . Yeah I know . ” you sigh . He wipes the tears from under your eyes when you pull away. You receive sad smiles from the rest of the group , then wanda offers to show you to your room and you’re thrilled .
The room is next to hers, and it’s beautiful . You begin to wonder if every room has a giant window as a wall . The view is beautiful , you could spend all day staring out at the view . But right now you’re in desperate need of a shower .
3 days later
You’ve spent the last couple days with everyone, watching movies or playing cards . You formed a quick bond with wanda , her warmth, sarcasm and kind heart is refreshing. The more time you spend with her the more you miss Kit,you can see the three of you being perfect friends . You haven’t met Bucky yet, Sam says he’s unsocial and a pain in the ass , you laughed for a good ten minutes after Sam told you of all his interactions with the apparently sassy man. You haven’t been informed of tchallas actions concerning Ross and his plan , but you assume he has it taken care of , after all he is a king.hes gotta have something up his sleeve.
Everything here is beautiful , you almost don’t want to go back home. If you could poof Kit and your dog here you’d never leave . This bed is like nothing I’ve ever felt, it’s like laying on clouds. Knocking on the door breaks you out of your day dreams,
You turn as you hear the door open , your mind going blank when you see who is leaning in your doorway . Oh fucking hell, is everyone heregorgeous ?
Bucky Barnes is leaning against the entrance , a tight black vneck stretched across his body with sweats hanging low on his hips . His dark hair pulled into a bun, and his piercing blue eyes locked on you. You move up to lean up on your elbows as he begins speaking .
“so, you’re the girl trying to save me ? No one told me youre such a doll.” He smirks when he sees you try to hide your blush .
“ sergeant Barnes , it’s nice to meet you.”
“ it’s bucky doll .its y/n , right?”
“ mhmmm, you know you can come sit instead of Creeping in the doorway . I don’t bite - hard .”
You send him a wink before laying back down , not missing the light blush rise over his cheeks .
You feel the bed dip next to you , and you turn to your side to face him . He’s leaned against the headboard, looking down at you .
“you risked a lot to come here, to save someone you don’t even know . ”
“yeah well, i had nothing better to do .”
He smiles at your sass , quietly chuckling.
“you always have an attitude, or -”
“ just 90% of the time. You might want to get used to it.” You shrug. The sound of his laughter makes you smile , the way his eyes crinkle as he does is adorable .
“ you’re probably driving steve up the wall, he doesn’t handle sass well Doll.”
“yeah I can tell. I don’t think he’s very fond of me .”
“ it’s the exact opposite. He’s grateful for you, as am I . Sam told me Steves just been on edge since we came here . He’s holding all this weight and guilt on his shoulders that he shouldn’t . Only one of us should and it’s me . My actions got us -”
“ I’m going to stop you there . First off what do you mean sam told you? Haven’t you been here too? & second , those actions you’re speaking of, weren’t yours . They were the soldiers , which means they were hydras. You aren’t the winter soldier anymore Bucky, you haven’t been for a while . I won’t even try to act like I can understand what you’ve been through or done, but the things you did , the people you killed , that isn’t on you. Bucky Barnes didn’t do them, the soldier did . They are two
Different people, you had no freedom,you didn’t know the difference between right & wrong . I know you can’t help but feel guilty , it’s human nature , but don’t you dare say YOU did those things . He did them, hydra did them; not you , not bucky Barnes . If I had any doubt about you, I wouldn’t risk everything to save you. ”
It’s dead silent for a moment& you’re terrified to look at him. Maybe I said too much - I should really learn to keep my mouth shut. You bite the bullet , and look at him. Tears are rolling down his cheeks, his eyes trained on his hands in his lap . You slowly move to sit up , and just as slowly move your hands to gently wipe away his tears . I might have broke him , how do I explain this to steve? He’s going to hate me . When you’re wiping his tears , his hand shoots up, startling you . His pressing it against his face, leaning into you warm hand .
“ I’ve been frozen , up until about a week before you came here . Tchallas scientists , along with wanda , figured out how to lift the trigger words from my mind . Those words are useless now , and I couldn’t be more thankful . So I’ve technically been here, just sleeping . ”
.They froze him ? How does that even work?
“I thought steve only believed in me because of who I am to him . Then the others spoke their feelings similar to yours , and I assume it was just because of they devotion to steve . Hearing you say - you have no connection to any of us , but you still see me as … the victim . While the rest of the world sees me as a monster.”
They only see him like that because of the news, and the government .
“bucky , people with small minds fear what they don’t understand. They believe information their fed because they can’t grasp the chance that maybe it’s false . They will see you as you are , a hero, and a victim.” when he doesn’t reply you add” did ya know you and Steve are in history books? I learned all about you guys in highschool . You’re even cuter than the pictures , they didn’t do you justice Barnes.” He laughs as you wink at him ,the mood shifting back to a light one.
You didn’t even notice when he removed your hand from his cheek and moved it into his lap, his fingers playing with yours . You’d be lying if you say you don’t feel butterflies as he keeps your hand with his .
“I’m not who I was before . I’m not the same as the person you learned about Doll. ”
“ well no duh. Someone doesn’t go through what you have , and come out the same . You’re an entirely new man Bucky! You can be whoever you want , things are different than they were before . You’re likes and dislikes are going to be different ! It’s a new world , and you’re a new man. ” you say excitedly
“ you know , I didn’t picture you like this when they said a girl came here to help us . I’m not too sure what I thought you’d be like , but I didn’t think you’d be like this.” His tone is hard to read , you can’t tell if he just complimented you or saying he expected more from you.
“ uh thank- thank you? I really don’t know if that’s a good or-”
“ it’s a good thing . You’re just so.. innocent and pure . I think those are the words I’m looking for . You have such a open view of life, of me . I guess I expected someone that wasn’t as easy to speak to, or get along with. Not a lot of people would do what you’re doing , you’re like an attractive version of Steve before he became a soldier . That punk was standing up for people and getting his as soon I keen every direction possible! “ He laughs at the thought before speaking again,I’m really not a people person , I barely talk to Any one else besides Steve &when I do it’s never like this .”
You both turn to each other, shy smiles on both of your faces .
“ I can say the same about you , I thought you’d be more doom and gloom Buck. But you’re the opposite,& it’s wonderful. ”
Rapid Knocking on your door ends the conversation , before you can call out your door swings open to reveal a very stern looking steve.
“ Tchallas meeting with Ross is beginning . We’ve got the tv revisiting the security camera feed of the conference .”
Said the spellmaker, quoting the King under the well: “I have looked and looked. All over the mountains. Across the sea. If you sail for a while, there is an island. If you sail for longer, you come back to the shore you left. I’ve tried diving into the depths. I have dug burrows. And still, here I am. The library is endless.”
TMI Tuesday: What is Iwyn's favourite location in Skyhold?
Thanks for another ask.
Iwyn’s favorite place is her bedroom. She likes the balcony, she likes she can look out over the mountains. She also likes it is her own space, - and Solas’ space, later, when they make their home there.
