limbs were still heavy with a lack of motivation, but he no longer could stand
to be hidden in some cavern tucked away at the bottom of the ocean. His mind
was running wild and supplying him with anxiety inducing thought after thought.
He needed a distraction.
“This way,” Bucky rolled onto his
back and tugged Tony through the water, their hands connected. “I got an idea.”
“Tony!” A streak of blond zoomed
between Tony and Bucky.
Bucky and Tony were yanked apart as
Wade swam circles between them. “Tony! Tony! Tony! Where have you been? Were
you and Bucky making babies? Can one of them be named after me? Can I have one
of them? Will your babies be as terrible at swimming as you?”
“Wade,” Bucky chastised. “Tony
and I were not making babies.”
“But you’re going to, right?”
Bucky grumbled and ran his hand
through his hair. “Where’s Peter? Someone needs to be here to mellow you out.”
“You think Peter mellows him
out?” Tony asked, a thread of amusement weaving its way around Tony’s heart and
perking him up a tad.
Bucky cocked his head to the
side. His eyes flicked to Wade then back to Tony. “Not really, but at least
he’s a little more willing to listen to Peter.”
“Hey, Wade.” Bucky waved Wade
over to him. “I got a deal for you.”
“Oh? What kind of a deal?” Wade
grinned from ear to ear. He swam right up to Bucky’s face.
Bucky looked slightly annoyed for
a moment by Wade’s proximity, but the emotion soon slipped away. Bucky leaned
down and whispered in Wade’s ear.
“Oh! Okay, yeah, I can do that.”
Wade back flipped away from Bucky then twisted around so he was facing Tony.
“I’ll be back, Tony.” Wade kissed Tony on the cheek.
Tony jerked back in surprise.
“Wade!” Bucky swatted Wade’s hip.
“Stop harassing my mate!”
Wade stuck his tongue out at
Bucky. “He’s not yours yet.” Wade snickered and zipped off before Bucky could
take another swat at him.
“Brat,” Bucky grumbled.
Tony touched his cheek. “Are all
of you that affectionate?”
Bucky blew bubbles out of his
mouth. He swam closer to Tony to close the distance between them. He took both
of Tony’s hands in his. “No. Wade just likes to stir up trouble. …and I guess
he is that affectionate with people he likes. He practically mauls Peter with
affection whenever gets the chance.”
Tony stared up at Bucky in
disbelief. “He likes me?”
“So far all of the kids do.”
Tony shook his head. “But I
haven’t done anything but ask them questions about Loki and Thor. Why would
they like me?”
“Why wouldn’t they?”
Tony huffed. His chest
constricted at the memory of when Bucky and him had met after Tony had been
transformed into a merman. “You didn’t like me.”
“Yeah, well, I was confused and
hurting, so I acted like a jerk. I like you now.”
“Are you sure it’s not because
you think you’re supposed to like me?” Tony mumbled. He hugged himself as
self-loathing washed over him. He was being so pathetic—so weak. What was wrong
with him? Why couldn’t he just do what Howard told him to do and be strong?
Feeling depressed and pitying himself would just give others the opportunity to
trample all over him. He had to shove down those feelings and show everyone
that he was strong.
Tony startled when a pair of lips
brushed against his own.
Tony blinked as Bucky pulled back.
“What was that?” Tony asked.
Bucky squeezed his hands. “That
was me trying to convince you that I like you, because I don’t think saying it
will be enough for you. At least not right now.” Bucky tugged Tony toward him,
and he began swimming backwards through the water, guiding Tony to an unknown
destination. “I do like you though.”
Bucky winked and picked up their
swimming pace. “Now, come on. I want to get things started before Wade comes
“Wade’s coming back?” Tony asked.
Bucky chuckled. “You’ll see.”
Bucky took Tony to an area thick
with colorful coral and rocks. He had Tony sit down on a rock and swam off for
a minute to return with an armful of seaweed. He dropped the seaweed at Tony’s
fin and “kneeled” in front of Tony. He beamed. “I don’t know what a robot is,
but I know how to make things.” Bucky batted away a small school of fish
swimming around a patch of coral and snapped off a chunk of the coral. “We can make
rock mermaids or Steve and I even once tried to repair a boat we once found; we
can try to do something like that. Or you could teach me how to build a robot.”
Tony blinked down at Bucky, his
heart giving a big thump. “You want to build things with me?”
Bucky smiled. “Yeah. Whatever you
want. It might turn out like crap, but let’s give it a shot.”
Tony’s heartbeat accelerated. He
felt his face flushing and was half tempted to cover his cheeks. He only
stopped himself because the action would end up drawing more attention to his
“You okay?” Bucky touched Tony’s
hand. “You’re being extra quiet.”
“Making a boat out of rocks seems
like the worst idea ever. It’s like you want the boat to sink.”
Bucky looked surprised then
chuckled. “I guess that’s why Steve and I have never come across any boats made
“Also, how do you even manage to
make rocks and coral look anything like a mermaid?”
Bucky picked up one of the rocks.
“I’ll show you.”
“Buckyyyyyyy!” Wade shouted.
Tony turned around and froze.
Wade was swimming right toward
him and Bucky, and right behind the little lightning bolt of a merkid was
Steve, Sam, Natasha, Gwen, Peter, and Mary Jane. All of whom had a collection
of shells, pebbles, seaweed, and driftwood in their arms.
“So what are we building?” Wade
asked, stopping between Bucky and Tony. His head swiveled excitedly between the
Bucky smiled at the shocked
expression on Tony’s face. “First, we’re going to build mermaid statues.”
Wade scoffed. “I’m making a
Bucky rolled his eyes. “Whatever.”
Steve plopped his items down next
to Bucky’s pile of seaweed. “Then what?” Steve settled himself next to Tony on
“Let’s make a launcher,” Sam
said. “We can then hurl things at Fury.”
“I still want make something that
can hold an octopus,” Natasha said.
“I don’t think that’s going to
happen,” Sam said to Natasha.
“I want to make an octopus
catcher!” Gwen shouted.
“I want make a lander house,”
“Octopus catcher!” Mary Jane
“Well, Tony?” Bucky asked.
Tony looked around, unable to
believe what he was seeing.
All of them wanted to hang out
No one ever wanted to hang out
with Tony. He was an outsider and a weirdo.
Tony couldn’t believe it.
Bucky squeezed Tony’s hand.
Tony snapped out of his reverie.
“All of it. Let’s do all of it.”
The kids cheered and swam around
like a bunch of lunatics while the teenagers of the group wrangled them in.
While everyone was distracted,
Tony squeezed Bucky’s hand. He leaned in to Bucky, and Bucky lifted his head so
Tony could whisper in his ear.
“Thanks.” The word felt
inadequate to Tony, but he was too flummoxed to come up with anything
Tony felt Bucky’s mouth curl into
a smile against his cheek. “Any time.”
I am Richonne all the way. Like ALL the way. Like I think they’re already married but just don’t know it yet.
Bonus: Forehead kiss.
Sam’s death is not Carol’s fault. I repeat (for those in the back): Sam’s death is NOT Carol’s fault. Sam, Ron, and Jessie were all broken long before Carol came into their lives.
I love Michonne and Carol and watch primarily for them. However, I have noticed that Maggie in distress makes my skin feel prickly with alarm and I just want to gather her up and hold her until everything is safe again and I did not realize that until the moment she screamed Glenn’s name from atop that rickety tower.
