Fun fact: Prince was the original intended actor for the role of Ruby Rhod in ‘The Fifth Element.’ Above you will see the costume design for Prince drawn by Jean Paul Gautier. Upon meeting with Gaultier, Prince didn’t say a word but was amused. Prince thought the costume was “too effeminate” for him. Though, the real reason for Prince not taking the role had been tour date conflicts. Of course, the role would go to Chris Tucker; who did a fantastic job with the colorful character.🔥💎🔥

Pairing: Pietro x Elemental!Reader
Warnings: Swearing, slight sexual tension
Word Count: 1103
Summary: Pietro Maximoff has been a part of your life ever since H.Y.D.R.A., where the three of you became tightly-knit friends, and have been ever since. After the battle of Sokovia, he became an even bigger part of your life when you threatened him for almost dying and accidentally slipped up about your feelings. Now, everything is absolutely perfect. But it all goes downhill when H.Y.D.R.A. comes looking for you, and time is running out. 

Author’s Notes: I’m not sure if I should make this a full series, so I’m going to test the waters a bit and see how you guys like it. Then we’ll go from there. My inbox is always open, so if you just wanna talk about life or request anything, go right ahead. 

(I apologize, there is only a brief mention of powers in this part, but trust me, there will be more. This part doesn’t have a lot to do with the summary, but it basically introduces some of the tone and future relationships with characters. The next one will introduce a lot more of the plot.)

Thanks loves<3

“Wandaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” I scream, absolutely terrified.

“Y/n, what’s wrong? Are you hurt?” She yells as she runs into my room, stopping as soon as she sees me standing on a desk, wrapped in a towel holding a shoe and a box of tissues. My best friend immediately drops to the ground, laughing hysterically. 

“A….a sp-spider?” She exhales before falling into another fit of laughter. 

“Wanda, help me! It followed me out of the shower and I can’t take my eyes off of-” I stop, mortified. The spider that was terrorizing me, is nowhere to be found. I scan the room from my perch on the desk, as Wanda’s laughter ceases.

“See Y/n, it’s gone now, I think…” She tries to assure me, but her gaze falls on my shoulder and her eyes widen.

“What?” My attention is drawn to a prickling feeling on the back of my neck, causing my heart to thump violently against my rib cage. 

“W-Wanda…my…n-neck…” I stutter, reaching my hand back. 

In a swift movement, I slap away whatever was on my neck. Only, ‘it’ is still attached to my hand, and ‘it’ is a giant wolf spider. A shrill scream escapes my lips as I jump off of the desk, knocking several books and papers to the floor, wildly shaking my hand trying to get ‘it’ off. Somehow, this encourages it to crawl further up my arm. My grip on the towel tightens as I run down the hall to the kitchen, leaving behind a hysterical Wanda. There’s only one person that will take this whole thing seriously and help me, and thankfully, everyone else is on a mission. 

“Peter Parker, get your ass over here and help me!” I bolt into the kitchen towards Peter, who’s sitting on the couch eating an apple. 

“Y/n, are you oka-”

“There’s a fucking spider on my arm! Get. It. Off.” I squeal.

“Every. Single. Time,” He sighs.

He quickly sets the apple down, stopping when he realizes I’m wearing nothing but a towel that stops about mid-thigh. His face flushes a deep red. He swallows hard and hurries to my side, delicately scooping up the spider and cupping it in his hands. 

“You’d think with the powers you have, you’d be able to take care of a single spider…” Peter mumbles.

“Okay one, I only had water to work with, and two, you remember what happened the last time I tried that?”

“Yeah, yeah I remember. Your room got flooded and it took two weeks to replace everything.”

“And that is why I can’t use my powers on spiders,” I state as he calmly walks down the hall to the elevator, probably to put it outside. I exhale and shut my eyes for a minute to calm my nerves. Suddenly, someone clears their throat from the other side of the room. My head snaps up, revealing Tony, Steve, Bucky, Natasha, and Pietro all staring at me. 

“When’d you all get h-here?” I stutter, now slightly embarrassed.

“Whew, you couldn’t wait for him to come back, could you? Got yourself all clean and…sultry,“ Tony smirks with a wink, proud of how uncomfortable he’s making everyone. 

"Spider?” Nat inquires as she passes me on her way out.

“Sadly, yes,” I sheepishly admit. She shakes her head and laughs as she makes her way down the hall. 

“Sultry, really?” Steve rolls his eyes, flashing me a playful smile. 

“Really. Y/n, that towel is very slimming, I think you should wear it more often. It gets quite the reaction out of this one,” Tony suggests, nudging Pietro with his elbow, causing his face to flush and contort with jealousy. Just like that, he speeds over and wraps his arms around my waist from behind, nuzzling his face in the crook of my neck. 

“Guys, guys. I’m the only one that can tell her how seksi and lepa and neverjetno she is…“ he trails off, inhaling and exhaling deeply, still resting his head on my shoulder. I close my eyes, melting into his embrace when I feel a slight tug on my towel. I look down, finding that my towel is falling down, little by little. 

"Piet?” I whisper as my face turns redder than a tomato.

“Hmm?”

“My towel.”

“What about it?” 

“It’s falling…”

“So?”

“Pietro Maximoff I swear-”

“Well, this is uncomfortable. Steve? You up for some intense training?” Bucky interrupts, desperately trying to get out of the awkward situation. 

“Sure thing, Buck.” He replies. The two waste no time in leaving.

“Are you just going to leave me here, alone, with them?” Tony yells, slightly hurt by being left behind. 

“Yup,” a voice calls back from the hallway. 

“Well, not that this hasn’t been fun and all, but I should go do something productive with my life. Smooches,” Tony gestures to the two of us as he saunters towards the hall before quickly turning around. 

“Oh, and remind me to get earplugs. You guys tend to get a little too verbal, if you know what I mean,” He winks before walking away. 

“Do we really get that loud?”

“I don’t know, Draga. You want to find out?” Pietro whispers, burying his face in my hair. I sigh as his hot breath tickles my skin, a smile creeping onto his face.

“But tonight’s team dinner,” I counter.

“I’m sure the Captain will let you skip just one dinner.”

“Piet-”

“Y/n, please-”

“Fine, whatever. But only because It gives us the chance to annoy Stark.”

“Then I’ll be sure to make you scream loud enough for him to hear.”

"I’d like to see you try.”



Draga - Darling

Seksi- Sexy

Lepa - Beautiful

Neverjetno - Amazing

Pairing: Bucky x reader

Summary: you weren’t beautiful. And no, no sugar-coating that, you just simply weren’t. you didn’t have the perfect body and you were insecure about almost everything about yourself. But still, no matter how much you were in denial of your beautiful imperfections, Bucky couldn’t help but admire you more and more.

Author’s Note: hey! I am not dead. Okay so this is an introductory part of this series. It’s a pretty small one it will have two or three parts only. I really wanted to write a chubby insecure reader one so here it is. It’s more funny than fluffy but I guess it turned out well. Also, tags are open. Hope you like it!

‘so, who is this another one of you freaks I don’t know about?’ Bucky turned to Steve as they were making their way to the common room.

‘oh, she’s an absolute sweetheart.’ Steve smiled brightly as your image popped in his mind. ‘well, mostly she is.’ He snickered.

‘what do you mean?’ Bucky questioned as they entered the common room.

‘see for yourself.’ Steve pointed at the avengers who were surrounding someone.

The room had a warmth in it, a nice hustle and bustle. Everyone was laughing out loud at something you had said.

  ‘damn it (Y/N)! my stomach hurts!’ Clint said as he rolled on the floor laughing while. Natasha couldn’t help but laugh at his reaction.

‘yeah!’ Sam slapped your shoulder.

‘You never fail to make anyone laugh.’ Thor said grinning.

‘I think you are mostly mean.’ Tony said unimpressed and everyone looked at him. you gave him a sharp look before continuing to speak.

‘hey, how do you think Tony spices up his sex life?’ you asked and Tony’s eyes narrowed.

‘how?’ Wanda asked trying to stifle her laughter.

‘with just a little bit of pepper in his life.’ You smiled at Tony and crossed your arms over your just.

‘well- uh,’ Tony stuttered.

‘and the great Tony stark is defeated.’ Bruce kept a hand on Tony’s shoulder who stood there gaping like a fish.

‘ahahaha!’ Clint pointed at Tony as he sat on the floor and started to roll on the floor laughing again. That was enough to make all of them burst into laughter again.

Steve and Bucky who were looking from afar couldn’t help but join in. Steve walked towards you and Bucky followed.

‘hey pumpkin!’ Steve grinned at you knowing how much you hated that nickname.

‘hey!’ you stood up and hugged him. ‘how’s my favourite blonde?’ you winked at him. he rolled his eyes, he could never beat you in the worst nickname game.

‘you must be Bucky!’ you grinned at the long-haired man.

‘that’s me.’ Bucky gave you a small smile and shook hands with you. ‘Steve told you about me?’

‘you bet,’ you pointed at him. ‘Barbie over here, never shuts up about you!’ you said as you punched Steve lightly.

Bucky couldn’t put a finger on it but something about you made him want to know you more. He felt a certain… security around you, a sense of welcome.

‘I am (y/n) (y/l/n) by the way. I respond to almost everything ranging from witch, bitch, asshole, Gertrude and Shrek.’ You smiled and he snickered.

‘how can you depreciate yourself so much but still be so happy?’ Wanda asked.

‘oh, it’s a gift.’ You said sarcastically. ‘If anyone doesn’t get my sense of humour they are free to go fuck themselves.’ You said with your arms crossed over your chest.

‘you look so cute when you’re angry.’ Steve pulled your cheek. ‘our cute, angry, pumpkin.’ Steve chuckled while you shot daggers at him with your eyes.

‘why do they call you pumpkin?’ Bucky furrowed his brows.

‘she was all cute and round like a pumpkin when we first saw her.’ Wanda teased you.

‘yeah, but she’s lost a lot of weight now.’ Natasha said.

‘if anyone says anything about me anymore.’ You said calmly. ‘that bitch won’t have their head on their shoulders!’ you threatened.

 ‘aww.’ Tony cooed and everyone started laughing. You crossed your arms and cussed under your breath. You hated it when you became the butt of all the jokes.

‘I won’t call you pumpkin.’ Bucky gave you a soft smile.

‘then you will be my new favourite person.’ You smiled.

And since that day on, you and Bucky became the best of friends. You were practically inseparable. You could even enjoy the silence in each other’s company. You were the only one who could make him laugh till his stomach hurt, who would talk to him when he had a bad dream or a bad day, who would equally enjoy his weird music and, the one he had started to love.

The list of reasons why he adored you could wrap the moon twice. Your face, smile, eyes and hair were materialistic things. What made him fall for you were how you laughed, how you cared for every one, how you hugged him and made him feel that all his broken pieces had stuck back together, how you sang beautifully and threatened to cut him if he told anyone, how you would greet him by wrapping your hands around his neck rubbing your cheek against his then complain about him not shaving. He just couldn’t get enough of you.

But he was scared. He was scared to death to tell you about how he felt. How could he? though you looked like a person who murdered people just for the knack of it., you were insecure. You were insecure of your body and face. you were insecure of how you could get loud or too masculine sometimes. you were living in a crisis of your own mind and he didn’t want to push you away. So, he kept it all inside.

‘why are you taking that leather jacket? I thought you hated it.’ Steve said as he saw Bucky standing in front of the mirror.

‘do you know there is a thing called cold which makes you feel uneasy?’ Bucky replied sarcastically.

‘I can see how much of (y/n)’s rubbed off on you.’ Steve leaned against the door frame.

‘oh, he so badly wishes that.’ Sam scoffed as he passed the hallway.

‘the fuck did he say?’ Bucky turned to Steve who had a teasing grin on his face.

‘oh, you know, that you are in looveee’ Steve said in a sing a song manner.

‘who’s in love?’ you cocked your head from the went making them jump in surprise.

‘how many times do I have to remind you and Clint, no sneaking around in the vents.’ Steve straightened up.

‘oh, get that stick out of your ass cap’n’ you said hanging from your hands.

‘don’t blame him (y/n),’ Bucky looked at you. ‘that tends to happen due to a lack of-‘

‘sex!’ you and Bucky said in unison as you jumped down. Steve turned red because of both embarrassment and anger. you and Bucky could not be defeated together. you loved to get on everyone’s nerves, specifically his.

‘that’s not true!’ he defended himself.

‘of course.’ Bucky grinned.

‘oh don’t tease him, Sharon said she finds it cute when he tries.’ You said seriously and Bucky started laughing. You could even hear a distant laugh of the other avengers.

‘okay, now if you are done making fun of me let’s go, we have this spying mission to complete.’ Steve walked ahead and you both followed.

‘and a whole lot of orgasms.’ You whispered in Bucky’s ear and he snickered.

‘I heard that!’ Steve turned to you.

‘well, Sharon never quite felt that.’ Natasha joined in and Bucky and you started laughing like crazy. Steve groaned and walked away fast paced.

All four of you were cramped up in Steve’s car. Natasha and Steve were in the front seat and you and Bucky were sitting in the back.

‘you have no right to comment about my sex life,’ Steve turned to you. ‘you are a virgin after all.’ He said.

‘yeah, but we both are totally different case.’ You said.

‘oh, really?’ Natasha rolled her eyes.

‘hell yeah.’ You replied. ‘first of all, Steve’s a century old while I am the youngest of you oldies, second, I do not look like that.’ You pointed at him.

‘okay, but you had the chance with that guy at the club.’ Natasha said. Bucky was curious now, who was this guy you had not told him about? ‘he was hot and was giving you signals the whole night.’

‘he could’ve also given me AIDs!’ You shot back making Steve and Bucky snicker. ‘also, call me Steve,’ you said making Steve roll his eyes. ‘I believe in making love and not just having emotionless one night stands.’

‘aww.’ Natasha and Steve cooed. ‘you must’ve kissed someone at least?’ Natasha asked.

 ‘uh, well, I’ you struggled with words and started playing with your hands as you looked down.

‘what?!’ Natasha and Steve’s eyes grew wide. Natasha noticed Bucky’s unchanged expression. ‘you aren’t surprised?’ she grinned.

‘she tells me everything.’ He shrugged.

‘I am telling this to everyone!’ Steve said and you kicked his seat.

‘and I am going to jail for burning captain America alive or for extracting all the water and air out of him.’ you smiled.

‘that is still is not going to stop me.’ Steve simply stated. You groaned and Bucky gave you a sympathetic smiled.

You all were looking out for the man to come out of the building but it seemed to take too long. It was getting late and colder.

‘when will you get that damn heater fixed.’ You complained to Steve.

‘I am sorry I forgot.’ He simply said. ‘just use your powers.’

‘I can’t! I had taken a day off so I won’t use them until it’s utterly necessary.’ You argued.

‘well you’ll freeze if you don’t. I guess it is necessary.’ Natasha shrugged.

‘wait! Don’t do it!’ Steve turned around. ‘there is that gas pump thing lying in the back. Tony gave it to me and I forgot to give it to Bruce. It’s temperature sensitive so if you turn up the temperature we’ll die.’ Steve said.

‘what?!’ you said.

‘horribly.’ He added.

‘fuck you and your old memory.’ You whined. Bucky took off his jacket immediately and draped it around your shoulders. ‘hey! You don’t have to!’ you said.

‘don’t worry, I am used to cold temperatures.’ He said. ‘

you sure?’ you asked and he nodded. ‘thanks. But still.’ You scooted closer to him and rested your head on his shoulder. You summoned your energy and sparked a warmth in him.

‘this is nice.’ He said as a comforting heat grew in him.

‘you’re welcome.’ You smiled with your eyes closed. ‘did I tell you that I’m getting new piercings?’

‘nah, where you getting them?’ he asked.

‘ears. Where else will I get them? I already have a nose one.’ You furrowed your brows.

‘you know there’s lips, tongue, belly button..’ Bucky started to count. ‘nipples.’ He said and you giggled.

‘I already have them.’ You said and the three of them stared at your chest. ‘I was just kidding.’ You covered your chest with Bucky’s jacket.

‘why do you like piercings?’ Bucky asked.

‘why? You don’t like them?’ you asked with your eyes closed.

‘no! I love them. Just wanted to ask.’ He said and you shrugged in response.

‘I love the pain and I guess I love having some extra metal in my body.’ You replied and both Steve and Natasha turned around and wiggled their brows at him. he kicked their seat and they turned away.

‘why are you moving so much?’ you asked.

‘nothing, just getting rid of some bugs.’ He glared at them.

‘I am sleeping now don’t disturb me.’ you closed your eyes and soon fell asleep.

Bucky was playing with a lock of your hair and savouring this moment of having you so close. You weren’t a very touchy person. You would hug the best but liked to maintain your distance.

‘you are in a little heaven back there, aren’t you?’ Natasha asked.

‘please do shut up.’ He said.

‘reply with outmost truth buck,’ Steve said.

‘you took the jacket because you wanted to do that, didn’t you?’ Steve grinned as he faced Bucky.

‘nope, I also keep my chains in it in case I have to strangle someone.’ Bucky replied sarcastically.

‘just tell her already! Be her first kiss.’ Natasha said. ‘you will be the cutest couple at the tower.’

‘it’s not that simple.’ He sighed. ‘she has had a whole lot of stuff. You know what she says sometimes?’ he looked at them. ‘she says that no one can love someone like her.’ He looked at you with a sad expression.

‘why does she think so lowly of herself?’ Steve asked.

‘you do that when you are made to think so.’ Natasha replied. Bucky brushed away a stray lock of hair from your face and looked at you adoringly.

 ‘only if she would believe me.’ he sighed again.

‘damn, this car should be named “the sadness wagon”.’ Natasha said as she realized that at that time. All broken souls were sitting in that car. Each of you had lost something or the other.

‘Bucky?’ you said and Bucky froze. Had you heard everything?

‘yeah, (y/n)?’ he asked hesitantly.

‘why aren’t bra’s called booby traps?’ you asked with a dead serious voice. He took a breath of relief and they all started laughing.

‘she talks in her sleep?’ Steve asked.

‘only when she is exhausted.’ He replied.

‘I almost forgot!’ Natasha exclaimed. ‘ I have to take her shopping. She literally has no clothes.’

‘would you mind if I take her instead?’ Bucky asked. ‘I can spend some time with her that way and I have never seen her in anything but those baggy sweatshirts or tops of hers.’

‘yeah, sure.’ She said.

‘great.’ Bucky said to himself.

okay friends, so i’m working on kidding around and one of the major issues is baby clint’s (and possibly baby steve’s) deafness. it is a hot inconsistent (and likely ableist as hell) mess and i need help to represent it adequately or i need to cut it. does anyone know anyone who might be willing and able to give me advice on this?

i’ve done some research, but this is an intersection of two things i don’t know a lot about: deafness and children, so I could use all the help i can get

thanks in advance

A Thought about Ready Player One

I’m sure many people have been in this situation. Your Favorite book is about to be made into a Movie and you are Worried that It’s not going to be faithful to the Book.

Well, you’re Right, Over the years, Books that have been adapted for TV or Movies have always changed between medias. Small things like the colors of an object or how tall someone is, and big things like Character behaviors and situations.

These changes seem to occur during pre and post production. They have to write a script that can fit into a movie time frame, so a lot of exposition and backstory has to be trimmed into more bite-sized pieces.

Characters will change due to things like the Actor that plays a character doesn’t have the same genetic markers as said character. In Harry Potter, Harry had green eyes in the book while the actor that plays him has blue eyes, When Holes was being made, the main character, Stanley Yelnats, was said to be overweight and became thin during the book, That kind of character change would be too much for an actor (and dangerous) so they changed it so that he was always thin.

Characters will also behave differently from their book counterparts: John Hammon of Jurrasic Park was this greedy, ruthless man who only wanted to make money, but that was his book version, in the movie he’s a sweet old man who only wants to bring joy and only had the best intentions.

Settings and situations from books will change as well to fit the storyline of the movie. When Halo: the Fall of Reach was written, John-117, Kelly-087, and Sam-034 were their own team, to begin with. when the Animated feature was made, Linda-058 and Fred-104 were added with the other three because, in later adaptations, they would always be together, and Blue Team became a big factor in Halo 5 and this was to help new people know them more (for all the good it did, but let’s not reopen that wound.)

Sometimes a movie will completely deviate from the source material. “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” borrowed some elements from the book “Who Censored Roger Rabbit?” but in the end, it became its own story, names may be similar but the Movie characters and settings are nothing like their book counterparts.

Or they can be exactly like the book. I heard that Lord of the Rings was pretty faithful to the books, Even though it was argued for a very long time that Lord of the Rings was a series that can “Never be Filmed.”

Now, this is a Mixed Bag, You’ll either get a good result or a bad one. And there have been plenty of Bad Movies based on Books, some of Steven King’s work was turned into TV movies and were seen as bad, Harry Potter became favored in both Book and Movie form, despite some changes that some didn’t like.

Which brings us to Ready Player One, an upcoming Movie based on the Book of the same Name. Already there are people who are saying “This isn’t going to be faithful to the source material” or, “This scene wasn’t in the book, it’s gonna suck” and “why can’t it be like the book.”

However, Ready Player One may be the only series that can get away with the changes the creative differences writers and Directors go through during adaptation. How you may ask? Well, if you read the book, you’ll notice something in the Prologue, AKA chapter Zero.  Here’s the excerpt:

“Then, on the evening of February 11, 2045, an avatar’s name appeared at the top of the Scoreboard, for the whole world to see. After five long years, the Copper Key had finally been found, by an eighteen-year-old kid living in a trailer park on the outskirts of Oklahoma City.”

“That kid was me.
Dozens of books, cartoons, movies, and miniseries have attempted to tell the story of everything that happened next, but every single one of them got it wrong. So I want to set the record straight, once and for all”

(page 33 and 34)

The Main Character, Wade Watts, AKA Parzival, says in the Prologue that the Movies about the events he went through were wrong. Not completely wrong but not completely right.

So even though the Movie won’t be exactly like the book, that’s ok…because according to the book…That’s the Universe’s Canon, the movie not getting everything right.


So..yeah, I’m not worried

Things I like from the trailer

As I came late to the game for the trailer, I missed most of the stuff on it, but as I’ve now watching it a healthy amount of times things I am really liking:

CAITRIONA BALFE - Need I say more?  Look at that woman’s skill.  Her portrayal and they way Claire is adapted is a large part of how I came to the fandom.  She is stunningly good and showing a thousand emotions all at once.  Also, I don’t know if this is me, but I’m getting this from the trailer in terms of Claire - a steady building up of walls between her and Frank and her being able to get on with her life.  We saw that much in 213 and the VO where she says she put the past behind seems to me to be a clear indication that as the years go on, she has a more and more fractious, bitter relationship with Frank.   Her face seems tighter and restrained more as she goes on until she’s heading back to Jamie.

Joe - I love Joe’s character and always feel like we don’t get enough Joe/Claire in the books

Originally posted by outlander-starz

(let’s be honest Joe, you mean three cold martinis at a minimum when you’re with Dr. Beauchamp don’t you?)

The general way in which we’ll see Jamie’s character development/story with perhaps more intrigue.  I’m not holding my breath for a bit of Ardsmuir exploration of Scottish sectarianism but you never know.

Bree and Roger - there are elements of Book!Roger I like an awful lot, but Show!Roger is delightful for lots of reasons mainly Rik Rankin.  And I’m warming more to Bree.

Bring on September!

dizzy-redhead  asked:

If you're still doing five-sentence prompts, ShieldShock or WinterShieldShock, I'm a wizard and I accidentally apparated into your house. Oops.

It’s longer than five sentences - oops (sorry not sorry lol).  I needed a few extra lines in order to pull of the idea the way I wanted to, but I don’t think anyone’s going to complain.  I went for the WinterShieldShock option too, even though it’s sorta light on the romance.  It’s also a bit vague on the wizardry bit, but, well, you’ll see.  I hope you enjoy it!

**********

It’s all too easy for Steve to make out the thudding of his combat boots on the creaking wooden floorboards, his breath rasping in his lungs as he runs fast, faster than any human should have a right to, but then adrenaline and whatever creature is chasing them is a wonderful boost to the super serum.  Next to him, Bucky stumbles, almost going down if it weren’t for Steve reaching out to hoist him back up and propel them both forward again.

The way out of the house is nowhere to be seen, and then, suddenly, Steve knows what he has to do.  It’s something he hasn’t done since, hell, before the war, but desperate times call for desperate measures.  Steve turns his focus inwards, pulling up that sudden swell of power that he hasn’t felt in oh so long, and clutches Bucky even tighter.  He puts the image of their girlfriend and their cozy apartment firmly in his head, and gasps out, “Brace yourself, Buck,” just before he lets the power loose, the air crackling as they disappear between one step and the next.

They crash land directly on their bed, the sudden warm glow of low lighting a total change from the grim dank and darkness of the house they were in just moments before.  Bucky pushes himself to a sitting position and blinks hard, staring around at their bedroom with a bemused glance.  “Didn’t think you remembered how to do that,” he mutters, just as Steve lets out a long breath and flops back on the pillows, the relief coursing through his system now that they’re safe.

That’s when the bedframe, in stark protest of their actions from moments ago, creaks ominously and then splits apart, the headboard detaching from the frame and depositing the bottom frame, box spring, mattress, and two very surprised super soldiers on the floor.

“What the fuck?” they hear Darcy cry out from the living room, followed quickly by her running over to the bedroom and throwing the door open.  Steve’s not sure what she was expecting to see, but he’s pretty sure it’s not the two of them given the way that her head darts between them, the large picture window in their bedroom (which does not have a balcony and is a good thirty stories off the ground), and back at the front door to the apartment. That and the fact that just moments ago they were technically half way across the country.  “How…?” she gasps.

“I can explain,” Steve blurts out.

“This ought to be good,” Bucky mumbles.

Finished Fic, Avengers + Bucky Seven Minutes In Heaven

So you, reader, are you ready to go in a small space with the Avengers (and Bucky)? If you are, the link is above. It is finally complete! I am currently taking requests, as well, thanks for reading!

Stucky Fic Recs

Modern AU

you were standing there – thebrotherswinchester: 14863 Words/ Bucky accidentally breaks into the wrong house while drunk. The wrong house happens to belong to Steve Rogers./ Sweet and funny, with Sam and Natasha in delightful guest roles.

on the cusp – thebrotherswinchester: 18949 Words/ Bucky is a rich kid. Steve is his butler. It doesn’t stop them from being best friends/ Bucky and Steve grow up together, but Steve is the butler for Bucky’s rich family. The story spans from their childhood to adulthood and the way their relationship is portrayed is painfully beautiful. One of my absolute favourites! Really just read anything by this author, I love all of their stories.

our golden age – augustbird: 147825 Words/ Wherein Bucky is the crown prince and Steve still becomes a hero./ Bucky is the crown prince of America (sounds weird but totally makes sense within the story) and Steve is his sickly best friend. Loads of pining, so of course I’m all here for it.

 2nd World War

Guns Not Butter – reserve: 10825 Words/ It’s 1941. Bucky Barnes lives with his best friend Steve Rogers, and all Bucky wants is to do right by him. That means he’ll do anything./ Set before Bucky goes to war. To earn enough money to take care of Steve, Bucky prostitutes himself. This fic is tragically good, just thinking about it makes my heart ache. 

Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen - Laura JV (jacquez): 7533 Words/Bucky Barnes and the Great Sexuality Crisis of 1938./ Bucky pines after Steve for about 75% of this fic, and the other 25% they spend having the sex. So it’s the perfect ratio. They live together and it’s all very domestic and cute.

Able-Bodied Men - Ataraxetta, checkthemargins: 7538 Words/ Steve marches out of Austria a hero. Bucky marches out of Austria broken in ways Steve’s afraid he can’t fix.

Ampersand – kaydeefalls: 6024 Words/ They’ve been steveandbucky since they were kids, but that ignores the parts of their lives that don’t wrap around each other, that never did. (Bucky needs to figure out who he is, just him, with or without Steve.)/ Set during the war and told from Bucky‘s perspective. In flashbacks he remembers his friendship with Steve through the years, while he is sent on solo missions to get his hands dirty for Captain America. Melancholic and hearttwistingly tragic, but with a hopeful ending.

The Happiness You Bring To Me – robokittens: 4748 Words/ It was easier before he knew, when he thought Bucky was just … going out and being queer, then coming home and being normal./ Steve and Bucky live together in Brooklyn and have a complicated relationship full of badly suppressed FEELINGS.

the sirens and the thunder – legete: 15748 Words/ “Hide that,” he says, forcing the words out past every instinct. “As well as you can, all right? Before morning.” Steve stares at him blankly, like he needs a moment to work this out, then swallows once, sharply. “What’s your name?” he asks at last—asks as he stands there with the pelt in his hands. And oh, he thinks suddenly, what is his name? He can’t speak it, not with this mouth, he can’t sing it into the air like he can in the ocean. He just shakes his head; like his nakedness, it’s something he can’t explain. Steve nods, just nods, his eye swelling shut and blood drying on his shirt collar, and says “we’ll figure it out.”/ An alternate universe, in which Bucky is a selkie called from the sea by Steve by accident.

Fem!Steve:

3 stories about how the story may have unfolded if Steve had been born a girl. One of my absolute favourites, really well written (check out the author’s other stories as well, they’re all brilliant!) and I just adore Bucky’s characterization in this and his relationship to “Stephanie”.

Feast – rageprufrock: 3824 Words/ Unrepentant girl!Steve and Bucky smut – then and now.

10, 15, 18 - rageprufrock, waldorph: 2602 Words/ In which Stephanie Rogers is a good girl, not an obedient one, so nobody’s surprised she gets mixed up with that no-good Barnes kid. More a series of vignettes than a full story.

Reconstruction – rageprufrock: 59007 Words/ In which Stephanie Rogers is the complicating element in the sweeping romance of Bucky Barnes and Lady Liberty./ Sadly unfinished, but still definitely worth reading. And fortunately it doesn’t end at a too frustrating point.

Post Winter Soldier

the long slide from kingdom to kingdom – gyzym: 6015 Words/ They want you to love the whole damn world but you won’t, you want it all narrowed down to one fleshy man in the bath, who knows what to do with his body, with his hands.-Richard Siken, Driving, Not Washing/ Steve and Bucky before the war, and Stee and Bucky after they find each other again in the future. Love the writing style. Also contains the most emotional haircut of all times.

Come To Morning – emilyenrose: 4707 Words/ He figured it was natural, kind of—well, not natural, but he and Steve spent a lot of time together, and Steve didn’t get so much attention from girls, which was a crying shame because he was a good guy and a girl could do a lot worse. But it meant maybe Steve got a bit confused, because sometimes he would look at Bucky with this look. This bright, astonished look, like he was seeing something so good he couldn’t quite believe it was real. It made Bucky squirm inside, a little./ Bucky is oblivious and needs 70 years to come to terms with his sexuality. But yay for Happy Ending!

we did not make ourselves – M Leigh: 25156 Words/ It is like steel, the determination inside of you that tells you you will achieve this, that you will find him. Nothing will stop you. You are two sides of the same coin, you and he: he cannot escape you forever. Bucky runs. Steve follows./ Written in 2n person, which I usually find kind of annoying but works really well here. Switches between scenes from Steve and Bucky’s past in Brooklyn and Steve looking for Bucky after the events of CA:WS.

a mirror, dimly – indigostohelit: 3381 Words/ On some forgotten roof in Leningrad, with the sky the color of sodium and the streets grey with dirty snow, the Captain shakes out his wrist like it’s hurting him. You toss a knife in the air so you can watch it catch the light, search your Captain’s face for something you don’t quite know the name of. The wind smells like metal. Winter’s coming. Or, the universe where both Bucky and Steve fell from the train./ Disturbing AU in which Bucky and Steve were both brainwashed after falling from the train together. Bonus points for a cameo by Natasha.

your favorite ghost – augustbird: 21013 Words/ It’s harder than Steve ever expected to bring Bucky home./ After CA:WS Bucky slowly starts remembering his past and keeps turning up at Steve’s appartment. Steve’s perspective, and the way his memories are tied into the narrative feel really natural, and I love Natasha and Sam in this, although they only play a small part.  

like a robot from nineteen-eighty-four – junko: 1671 Words/ “Everyone is conspiring against me,” Steve laments, and Bucky pats his cheek. “Poor baby,” he mocks. “Do you need me to protect you from the mean people on the internet?” Steve sniffs self-righteously. “Yes.”/ Steve and Bucky discover the internet and nothing sad happens.

A History of Birds – OddityBoddity: 2580 Words/ “You look like him,” Bucky says. No prompting, no nothing. He just speaks, like this is a thing he does. “What?” Steve asks. He didn’t really hear it, too stunned by the fact that words were coming out of Bucky’s mouth to understand their meaning. “You look like him. So did Pierce.” His voice is soft, gravelly from disuse. “Is that why they picked you?" Steve’s heart plunges like an elevator with the cables cut. “Buck, it is me.” The hard line of Bucky’s mouth softens just a little. “Sure,” he says. / Bucky thinks Steve is his new handler, selected by Hydra because of how similar he looks to his old friend. Heartbreaking but soooo good.

devil’s gonna follow me (wherever I go) – Lyaka: 63086 Words/ The man who used to be Bucky Barnes lined up his shot. His finger twitched, only once, very precisely. Help me, the bullet sang. Ninety-eight floors below him, the bullet glanced off a vibranium shield with a musical ping. And Steve Rogers looked up.

Medvezhonok – Lanyon: 18145 Words/ The Winter Soldier is on the run and no one is more surprised than he is by the fact that he is accompanied by a little boy who seems convinced that he is his father:“What’s that, Papa?” Papa flinches and looks at Stefan. “It’s called a Kalashnikov,” he says, in a strange voice. “You’re not to touch it, okay?”/ Bucky finds out he has a son (of course named after Steve) and flees with him from Hydra. Told from the perspective of the child. Steve only appears towards the end, but there is a Happy Ending to look forward to. Daddy!Bucky gives me all the feels.

but hey, you’re all right – beardsley: 5522 Words/ ‘This is not my fault,’ Tony lies. 'It was supposed to be a joke! Christ.’ 'Thanks to your joke,’ says Coulson, 'we now have a code three-four-delta, with the variable being a Russian immigrant. We’re checking his background right now, but it might take a while. Meanwhile, I suggest you civilian-proof the Tower. If any SHIELD intelligence is compromised, I will hurt you.’ Yes, this is the story where the Winter Soldier is a Russian mail-order bride. Everything  goes about as well as you’d expect.

escape from new York – beardsley: 12092 Words/ On Monday morning Thor parades bare-ass naked around the Tower; it all goes downhill from there. Or, the one where New York gets infected with alien sex pollen, Steve appears to be the only sane man, and the things that ensue include hilarity, fake zombies, pining and surprise makeouts. And a bear trap.

make one dream come true (you only live twice) – beardsley: 14099 Words/ Five times the Winter Soldier evaded capture. In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, and Steve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.

young hearts, out our minds – junko: 2144 Words/ Bucky posts a selfie of the two of them in bed to his instagram. He hashtags it #goodmorningamerica. Sam Wilson and Pepper Potts retweet it to their twitter accounts./ Steve and Bucky live in the future and are actually happy for a change.
