Paring: Bucky Barnes x Reader
“Everyone just calm down.” Natasha snapped angrily at the others who were freaking out. They were currently hiding in an alleyway, clothing was made to fit the era that they were in. “How can you be so calm about this? We shot almost Eighty years into the past!” Tony hissed when she clamped a hand over his mouth. “Shout louder why don’t you. Attract someone and let them think we’re crazy. Good plan Stark.” She snipped back when Clint placed a hand onto her shoulder. “Alright, let’s just sit down and think about this casually. We’re obviously in a time where Steve and Bucky live right?” He asked as they nod. “Well we should go see them. Figure out what the hell to do, because standing here quarreling isn’t doing us much good.” He said.
“Wait..” Tony said looking at them with a weary expression. “Now what?” Natasha asked quirking an eyebrow. “Well think about this for a moment. We were shot back into the past, a time where Steve isn’t Cap and Bucky-Bear isn’t the Soldier…. Would they even remember us, or are the preset when they were shot back in time?” He asked as everyone grew silent for a moment. “He has a point.” Clint shrugs. “Well what other option do we have?” Natasha asked. “I guess we have to take that risk. We can’t just assume without knowing the facts.” She said before cursing. “What?” Tony asked crossing his arms. “I have no idea where they live.” She huffs as everyone murmured their agreement. “Good thing I go on runs with him.” Sam pipes up.
“Why?” Clint asked as Sam rolls his eyes. “Because I know where he lives, apartment and all. We went that way the one time and he was telling me about it. Him and Bucky used to live their together, Crappy place, but it was theirs is what he told me.” He grins. “Well bird man, led the way.” Tony gestures as Sam frowns. “You know, you’re lucky I don’t have my suit or I’d have flown away by now.” He grumbles walking down the alley and out the entrance. Clint pulled Natasha against him as she looks at him with a frown spreading across her lips. “Men in the day was very grabby with ladies, and I know you can defend yourself, but I’m protecting them so you don’t break their nose into their skull.” He said wrapping an arm around her waist as she smirks.
Tony had a look of concentration across his features when Thor taps him on the shoulder. “You look burdened my friend.” He said softly. “I was just thinking.” Tony waved it off. “Care to explain your thoughts?” He asked when Tony bit his lip gently. “Well… I… I just realized that in this era my mother and father are alive. My old butler Jarvis is here, it just seems crazy to me.. I know I shouldn’t want to go see them, but if I could I’d tell my mother I loved her and hug Jarvis just a little be longer.” He said when his gaze fell to the as everyone looked at him in silence. “Let’s just find Steve and Bucky to make sure that they actually remember us and we’re not trapped here with no help.” Tony cut the moment short as they continued to walk with Sam leading the way towards the boys’ apartment.
“Wait, what do we do if they don’t remember us? Shouldn’t we have a game plan in case that’s an outcome?” Clint asked looking around to the others. “Wow Legolas, I’m surprised you thought of something.” Tony grins as Clint rolls his eyes. “Well if they don’t remember us we’re totally screwed.” Sam commented crossing his arms. “What are they going to do if they do remember us? They gonna wave a magic wand and presto we’re back in modern day New York?” Tony asked quirking an eyebrow. “Well if they remember us at least we have someone who can help navigate through this era. We have no idea where to go or what to do.” Natasha said when Sam points to an apartment complex that looked more than a little run down.
“This is where Captain America use to live?” Clint asked in shock when Natasha rolled her eyes. “He wasn’t always Captain America Clint, it seems people forget that. They see the tall Super Soldier, they never met the scrawny kid from New York. That’s why Steve cares so much about James… Because he’s the only piece of Steve’s past that links him to a time before Captain America.” She said softly. “And vise versa. James even told me that he had forgotten his own name before he forgot Steve’s. They are inseparable.” She explained to the others when Sam opened the door for them as they all walked into the building looking around. “It’s very warm.” Thor points out when they go to the steps. “He told me they were on the sixth floor apartment D.” Sam said as he started up the staircase while everyone trailed behind him.
“Well this is great, knock on their door and say hey do you remember us, or have you never seen any of our faces before? No, that’s cool we’ll see ourselves out. Wait, what if this disrupts time?” Clint asked when Natasha looked at him. “We have to at least try.” She huffs softly before they walked up to the door looking at the ‘Six-D’ in gold print on the grey door. “Wait.” Thor said as everyone huffs looking at him. “What is it?” Natasha asked when Thor gestured around them. “Where is the man of Iron? He was right behind me, but now he isn’t..” He said as everyone’s eyes widened. “What!” Natasha looked around before cursing under her breath in Russian. “He’s going after Jarvis.” She whispered looking down the hallway when the door opened up. “Hello may I help you?” A woman asked to them as they froze in place.
