You work at Radiance magazine and have been assigned the task to find a man to date and ‘lose him’ within the span of 10 days making the typical mistakes women tend to make, writing it up for your article. Easy right? Bucky Barnes is your ever so charming victim and it turns out he has his own 10 day task and may prove to be more of a challenge than you thought.
Pairing:Bucky x Reader
Warnings:Swearing, a tiny mention of violence and tiny mention of blood (Nothing graphic, don’t worry)
A/N:So I was laughing so much when writing this part, hopefully if I’ve written it right then it should be a lot funnier than the last two chapters. All I’m gonna say is poor Bucky. (Plus I’m from the UK so I’m struggling a little bit to use the American variations for certain words, so I apologise in advance!)
Some expecting parents would rather forgo the ruffly dresses and pink bows, which is why ButchBaby & Co., an “alternity” line for genderqueer people, trans men and masculine women that fits with their bodies, gender expressions and identities, was born. But their dream isn’t a reality yet.
all these stories about Jensen fixing Misha’s hair at DC con really got to me, ok.
It happened on a quiet night.
Dean walked into a room where Cas was looking in the mirror, frowning and trying to push his hair into a different position. Dean was about to leave him to it, strangely embarrassed by catching Cas in this small intimacy, when Cas noticed him.
Dean stood in the doorway, stuck in limbo, not sure whether to leave or make conversation or both or neither. He wanted to be in, but there was an anxious tightness in his chest telling him to walk out. He held his arms stiffly, and nodded in a surly kind of way.
“Cas,” was all he said, his tone stuck somewhere between greeting and statement of fact. Yes, you’re Cas, his voice seemed to say. I see you.
Cas said nothing, only continuing to brush at his hair. Dean lingered in the door, not quite watching. Cas’ hair had been lying flatter than it used to, Dean thought. It used to stick up all over the place. It looked more tired, now.
“It used to stick up more, didn’t it,” said Dean, just to say something, and have a reason to step further into the room. Why did he want to be in it so much - why did he want to be closer to Cas?
So you want to be closer to Cas, a little voice inside seemed to say. That’s not new. I see you.
“It did,” Cas agreed. “I can’t seem to get it to do that any more.”
Dean opened his mouth to speak, and then checked himself - and then huffed out a breath and pushed out the words.
“Come here,” he said, stepping across the distance between them. His footfalls felt heavy, clunky, insecure. His hands were too big. He lifted them up, Cas turning towards him, his eyes relaxed - ready for Dean’s touch.
A shiver - a good one - went up Dean’s spine. I see you.
Dean carefully pushed at Cas’ hair, changing the parting, ruffling it between his fingertips. His thoughts were a rosy, curious glow of close, close, close. Cas was watching him intently, his lips closed and slightly upturned. When Dean was finished, he should have stepped back to admire his handiwork - should have put that respectable distance back between them.
If Louis someday had a clothing line, what would it be like? And what about Harry's? Or the other boys?
louis’ would be stylish and simple but affordable, probably with lots of block colours and some subtle designs on the pockets or wherever, lots of boyfriend jeans + i have a feeling he loves patches so there’d be some of those too, and there’d be some surprisingly more extravagant pieces scattered here and there
harry’s would be more in your face with bold patterns and paisley and ruffly trimmings, a lot of the shirts wouldn’t have buttons on purpose, he’d sell headscarves that are made with the utmost love and care + would have a return guarantee and send personal thank-you messages to frequent customers
