pairing: bucky x reader (Y/N) genre: fluff A/N: hi! some of you may have read this before on my old blog, squishybucky, which I deactivated some time ago. This is an attempt to get my old masterlist up and running again, hopefully with some new additions soon! Thank you for reading!
Bucky doesn’t really know who he is.
He knows who he’s supposed to be- everyone’s got different versions of the story- his story. To the Avengers, he’s The Winter Soldier, the HYDRA-brainwashed ex-assassin. To Steve, he’s a painful reminder of the best friend he couldn’t save. To himself…he’s a broken man who doesn’t deserve a second chance.
They all expect so much from him. And it gets so overwhelming, so fast, because how can he meet everyone’s expectations of him when he doesn’t even know who he is?
But to Y/N…to Y/N, he’s just Bucky. (And to him, she’s just Y/N). When he’s with her, he doesn’t feel the sort of pressure he feels with Steve or the rest of the avengers to be Bucky the weapon, or Bucky the best friend, or Bucky the victim. With Y/N, he can be whoever he wants to be- and he just wants to be Bucky.
Maybe that’s why he shuts himself off from everyone except her.
And it’s probably unhealthy, the way he clings to her like a lifeline, but he can’t articulate just how much he needs her; she’s the only thing keeping him tethered to his own mind, and she doesn’t even know it.
Clearly Lucy Mangan wrote the 10 things at the end tongue in cheek I know but I thought…..😜
…….as there has apparently been so much sexist bullshit……and stereotyping……😫
Here’s ten things We might have had in the past from a male doctor…….!!!!! (Refers directly to the article)
1)nurse Who? (Because clearly a woman is not bright enough to be a Doctor!)(let’s have more male midwives!)
2)at the age of 897 I’d guess he’d need viagra to get it up……let’s hope the Doctor never had a vasectomy!
3)one in every four episodes the Doctor gets pissed and starts a fight. He finds the thing he’s put somewhere safe a week ago but couldn’t find.
4)Peter never looked like anyone’s Granny that I’ve ever seen!! Clearly for a costume the female Doctor will carry a Vuitton hangbag and wear Jimmy Choo’s!!!!!! 🤦♀️
5) the Doctor learns how to use a fucking washing machine! (Trust me guys it’s not that hard!!)
6)the episodes will be recorded quietly so men deafened by their own outrage can’t hear it. The female doctor meanwhile, will use the sonic to put up some shelves she’s been asking her male counterpart to do for six months!
7)less aware members of the community will wonder if the Doctor ever had any balls at all. And whether now being female there won’t be urine on the floor all round the toilet instead of in it.
8)programme volume will rise afterwards as women everywhere cheer, as man disappears down the garden to sulk in his man shed, whilst comparing his penis size to that of previous doctors.
9)every episode will be enhanced as women are just so much better at getting things done! The man drawer will be emptied and the contents thrown away.
10)end credits of the old Doctors never showed him slumped on the couch with a beer and a packet of doritos, having a wank and watching old episodes of Bonanza did they??
(And we already have a female Ant and Dec…it’s Mel and Sue!! )
Well, thought that might give you all a laugh anyway!!
