Summary: You and Bucky have always had an (unspoken) connection
due to having similar backstories and both feeling like outsiders in the
Avengers. One morning during a power outage in the tower because of a thunderstorm, you
and Bucky are forced to resolve whatever’s going on between you two. Based offthis request. (I changedup the request a little bit, sorry!)
mentions of kidnapping/violence/death, fluff

You watch him as he sleepily walks into the kitchen, your eyes glancing away from your phone and up to him as you curl up on the couch, surrounded by blankets to keep warm. It’s an extra cold day today in New York City, and with the storms rolling in, you know the weather will only continue to get worse. Another day stuck inside the tower for you. Half of the team was out on a mission today, leaving you, Bruce, Tony, and the quiet and mysterious man in the kitchen with nothing to do. But of course, Bruce and Tony were cooped up in the labs all day, which just leaves you and him.
Bucky’s always intrigued you, ever since the moment he walked into the Avenger’s tower a few months ago. Steve told you about his backstory before he moved in with the rest of you, but instead of being afraid of him like everyone else seemingly was, you weren’t scared. At first, you pitied him, having gone through a similar situation as his. HYRDA kidnapped you as a child and trained you for years to become their own personal weapon, putting you through hell in the process. Natasha had saved you from HYDRA three years ago when you had been fighting her in one of the labs her and Steve had come to take down. You don’t exactly remember how things had gone down- there’s a lot of blank spaces in your memory from your HYDRA years- but you do know that somehow she had managed to convince you to go back to SHIELD with her. A year later, you were an Avenger, kicking the asses of the people who had ruined your life as a child.
A few weeks after Bucky moved in, you realized that he was a lot different than you had expected. He was a good man; you had already known this, but he proved it to you. He never spoke to anybody except Steve, not even you, but it’s the small gestures. The way he genuinely cares about Steve, the way he will give the missions his all, the way he bent over backward to save you from getting killed by a HYDRA agent a few weeks ago. He’s not the Winter Soldier anymore- he’s just simply Bucky Barnes to you, a man who went through a hell of a lot to get to where he is today.
The tower is in complete silence. Bucky has gone out and you just return from the grocery. Everyone else is abroad so, Bucky and you are the only ones in the tower, which now seems a castle just for both of you.
You play your favourite music in the home theater of the living room to avoid the deadthly silence of home. Keeping the products you have bought is much more easier and quickly since you do it at the rhythm of the music.

“All that mushy-gushy stuff makes me wanna vomit!” ft Damon Salvatore
You miss the days when your friends were all single. Or at least kind of single and all lived in the same place. Nowadays, you’d be lucky if you saw Matt every couple of months. Caroline and Stefan were trying hard to incorporate everyone into their holiday plans, but it was their first year as a married couple. Elena was with Bonnie, who’s all the way in New Orleans trying to connect with an old family friend. Jeremy and Tyler and Kai were vacationing on the West Coast and that just left you and Damon in Mystic Falls.
You tried to convince Damon to leave town with you for a few days, but he just rolled his eyes. You two had a very wierd friendship: you two were almost at the point where you’d jump each other’s bones. You were always scared to though because you could never be sure with him. He was still heartbroken and he flirted with anyone who had a vagina or Ric.
Alas, it was Valentine’s Day. Stefan and Caroline went on a small vacation to the Swiss Alps and the others were nowhere to be seen. That left you with nothing to do but go ahead and bug Damon… or seduce him, but you didn’t wanna get your hopes up.
“Daaaamooonnnnn,” you call him out, stretching out his name like you know he hates. “C’mon old man. It’s Valentine’s Day!”
“What do you want?” Damon steps into the living room: bottle of bourbon in hand, signature black dress shirt left wide open, and his everyday black pants.
“Damon, it’s Valentine’s Day! Let’s go do something like–”
“No, I hate dates.”
“That’s not what I was–”
“And no mushy gushy stuff,” he lets out an exaggerated shiver and takes a swig of his bourbon.
“All that mushy-gushy stuff makes me wanna vomit. Do you not know me at all?” You cross your arms over your chest and Damon eyes immediately land on your chest.
“Well then what the hell did you want to do?” He narrows his eyes at you for a moment before a realization sets in. “Wait a minute… do you want to have sex with me?”
“Damon! Ew, no!” You scrunch up your face and he gives you his sex eyes.
“C’mon, you know you want this!” He smirks and walks over to you, playfully running his hands down his abdomen as you turn away from him. “You know you think about this all the time.”
“Damon, stop that right now!” You turn around to look at him, not realizing how close he is to your face. You falter, taking a step back and nearly tripping. Fortunately, or unfortunately, for you, Damon catches you and pulls you back up pressing your chest against his.
“Careful there. We don’t want you to get hurt before anything actually happens,” he smiles at you as you blow your bangs out of your face.
“And what makes you think that anything will actually happen, huh?” You glare at Damon and he gives you a gentle smile.
“I can smell your arousal from a mile away. Do you really wanna play that game?” You open your mouth to argue with him, but he cuts you off. “Come on, we’re both single. We’re alone. We’ve got a whole week to break all the beds in this place. What do you say?”
“A week? Come on, that’s pushing it,” you roll your eyes and tilt your head up, teasingly brushing your lips against his. “I’d say two days tops.”
What platform do you game on???? :ooo also do you have any games you recommend to a fellow gamer thanx xoxo
I game on the Ps4 and PC mostly but I also use my 3ds for fire emblem and pokemon
My all time favorite video game is Until Dawn, which is based on a stereotypical 80-90’s horror movie. It’s on the Ps4 and has lovely characters and character development and a lot of endings and scenarios (it’s based on the Butterfly Effect)
I’d also recommend Outlast II but it’s very– sensitive. There’s a lot of material in that game that might not be suitable for all ages. It definitely messes with your mind
I also would recommend Resident Evil: Biohazard (or really any resident evil tbh) I play it on the Ps4 but i’m pretty sure you can play it on PC too. It’s really good and well done and is basically shows the origins of the virus and it’s really interesting.
If horror isn’t really your thing though (which is understandable I hate the jump scares so much lmao)
I’d also recommend
Stardew Valley for the PC, it’s like a new and improved Harvest Moon in a way, it’s very peaceful and has a cute little story, it is a farming game though so like, you’ll be farming
Life Is Strange (i don’t know what platforms you can play it on but i play it on PC) , it’s very similar to Until Dawn in the way where your actions can change the ending significantly. It has a lovely storyline and the graphics are pretty good, also the soundtrack is A++
I also really love Dragon Age Origins, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age Inquisition. I think you can only play them on PC (through Origin), they’re open world exploration with a really good plot and the graphics are nice too, it has character customization and marriage options too which is fun
If you’re interested in an online game that has a lot of races to choose from, PvP options and a leveling up type thing, I would highly recommend World of Warcraft. It’s actually an amazing game, you can play up to level 20 for free, no trial or anything and you can make a lot of characters too. If you ever play it I say play on the region/server Fizzcrank it’s the one i use and i just enjoy it
For nintendo tho I only play three different types of games
1. Animal Crossing New Leaf, which is such a cute and calming game it’s been proven to help reduce anxiety and stuff. real neato, lovely little NPCs too
2. Every. single. pokémon. game. I love pokémon a lot and i’d recommend it to anyone and everyone. My personal favorite it pokémon Diamond/Pearl but honestly all of them are good (i have a choice of words with Pkmn B/W2 buuuut whatever), Pokémon X/Y was also one of my favorites. But overall i think they’re all good
3. Fire Emblem. Out of all fire emblems though my all time favorite would be Fire Emblem Awakening. It’s very similar to Dragon Age Inquisition, except, the graphics are for the DS so they won’t be as extravagant. The storyline is wonderful and there’s still an option for marriage (lon'qu bby), also character customization which is lovely
Anyways this is probably wayyyy longer then you wanted so sorry about that, but these are games that i’ve thoroughly enjoyed with all of my heart and play again and again
Especially Until Dawn it’s my all time fave video game
I’d also recommend the new video game PREY but i haven’t finished playing it yet so like i can’t form a full opinion on it, it’s open exploration and fighting monsters but– in space! And there’s a good plot too
