Request: I was wondering if you could do a one shot of how you like Bucky and he doesn’t like you and is dating Nat, so Tony comforts you and you slowly fall in love with him and learn to move on? Maybe make it really fluffy and marry Tony at the end? please -Anonymous
What do you do when the person you like, likes someone else? How are you supposed to just move on and forget about their eyes, their laugh, the way they make you feel? The answer is simple; by doing just that. The things you feel for someone slowly start to wilt away along with every thought you’ve had about them, every moment you shared with them that made you fall in love with them. He wasn’t yours and he never would be.
Your feelings for Bucky were not mutual and that’s something you’ve had to live with and suffer through for at least a year now. Bucky was happy with Natasha, he never let a day go by where he didn’t confess or show his love for her.
No matter how many shooting stars you wished upon, prayers you spoke, the hope you felt when the clock struck 11:11, and no matter how many dandelions you blew into the wind, you were not meant for Bucky. You had to accept it and you couldn’t hold yourself from being happy anymore.
You just couldn’t. You’ll never be her.
You could hear Bucky and Natasha laughing in the common room, wrestling with each other over the remote and what television show they’d watch tonight. Your stomach twisted and your throat burned. You could feel the hot tears filling your eyes as you heard them kissing.
Another presence entered the kitchen and you stood there, staring down at your dinner. You had just gotten back from a mission so you arrived late. Your appetite was once again ruined. “You know, I’m gonna start charging you for the food you make and throw out.” Tony said beside you.
You simply sighed and pushed your plate away. “You can afford it.” You said in a monotone voice. Tony laughed and shook his head at your comeback. You always did like to hear Tony laugh. It was strong and everyone knew it was his even if he wasn’t in the same room.
You sighed again and hopped down from your chair. Tony stopped you by grabbing your arm gently. “What’s bothering you?” Tony questioned, but knew the answer as you glanced towards the common room. Tony nodded slightly and sighed.
You gave Tony a tight smile. “You know, it won’t last forever, Y/N.” Tony said to you softly. You crossed your arms over your chest, biting back your tears. You quickly turned away and Tony looked at you with a pained expression.
He understood what you were going through and he wished he could take it all away. He’s always been here for you to wipe away your tears when you go to him crying over Bucky. You’ve spent countless nights awake at late hours with Tony as he comforted you enough for you to pass out on his shoulder.
It was silly to always cry over a taken man, but when you were in love with someone who was with someone else, it happens whether you want it to or not. You cry and cry and cry until you’re left with a hollow feeling that only they could fill; yet they can’t. They’d never be able to.
Natasha didn’t know of your feelings for Bucky. Bucky knew because you had told him one day while you were drunk and he immediately told you that he had been dating Natasha in secret. Bucky just didn’t want anything to ruin his relationship if he told the team. He wanted to make sure it was real. And by the way his eyes lit up when she entered a room, you knew it was the realest thing he’s ever felt.
It became even more real when he told the team that following morning. Everyone was happy for them and you just stood back, watching your life fall apart before your eyes.
Tony pulled you in for a tight hug and you inhaled his expensive cologne. You sighed against Tony and he rubbed your back soothingly. “I know it hurts, but Y/N, you’ve gotta let him go. It’s the only way for you to be happy.” Tony said, swaying you both side to side.
Happy is what you became. A few months later, you didn’t hurt anymore. You accepted your destiny and let fate take you into the arms you were meant to be in. One night after Natasha and Bucky had announced they were going to adopt a little one, something in you closed off and something else opened up.
You stared at yourself in the mirror, running your hands gently along your wedding dress as Wanda was fixing your veil. The man who had been there for you all along was the one you were meant to be with. Tony Stark was your soulmate.
It took you so long to realize it, but as time passed, days felt so short alongside Tony. You found yourself clinging to him in a way that felt right. Being with him made you feel better and you tried everything you could to hear that laugh of his. You’d even spend long nights with him in his lab, watching his hands work on something, anything.
Moments that made your heart beat faster with Tony made your mind scream at you: “He’s your soulmate. It’s him, it’s him, it’s him.” Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. Tony asked you out one night after sharing an intimate moment after a very life threatening mission.
You realized in that moment, he was the one for you. You were so blinded and so in love with James Barnes, you didn’t see the truth lying in front of you. You and Tony fell in love and you felt free of your feelings for Bucky at last.
It’s taken some getting used to, but now, as you see the smile on your face and feel the fluttering in your chest, you couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come.
Wanda had finished fixing your veil and you turned to face her. “You look breathtaking, Y/N.” Wanda squealed happily, the biggest smile on her face. You blushed and smiled back. “Thank you, Wanda.” A knock on the door turned both yours and Wanda’s attention away from each other.
Steve peeked in and he gasped, seeing you in your white dress. “Oh my god, Y/N!” Steve beamed, rushing in to see you. You giggled and let him twirl you around, your dress flowing down past your feet and leading a little trail behind you. “Tony is so lucky.” Steve said with a chuckle.
Wanda laughed along with you. “They’re ready if you are.” Steve said, holding his arm out for you to link yours with. Your father wasn’t around to walk you down the aisle, so you made a joke by saying Steve could since he was the oldest on the team. That earned a loud laugh from Tony and a flutter in your heart.
You smiled and linked your arm with Steve’s, waving bye to Wanda so she could line up with Natasha and Sharon on the platform. Grabbing your red rose bouquet, you breathed out, trying not to let your nerves show through. “She’s ready.” Steve said into his comm. “Copy.” You heard Sam reply.
The traditional piano music started to play and two men opened the large doors you and Steve stood behind. You could see Tony lined up with the groomsmen: Clint, Sam, and Bucky. They were all dressed in tuxedos with red ties and the girls were wearing matching red gowns.
Your heart beat wildly in your chest as you started to walk down the aisle, repeating “Don’t trip” in your mind over and over. The guests, which were at least in the high hundreds, all stood up and turned to look at you. A blush crept onto your cheeks as you saw their awestruck reactions.
Your eyes landed on Tony’s as you walked up the stairs. He sent you a wink and you giggled softly, your stomach flipping. Steve let your arm go and you leaned up on your toes to press a kiss to his cheek. “Hey, hey.” Tony said with a firm voice, causing the whole Church to erupt in laughter.
Steve stood behind Bucky, chuckling. You turned to Tony, staring up at him with a wide smile. The pastor opened his Bible and started to recite the marriage prayer. “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today-” He started, looking at you and Tony fondly.
As the pastor finished the prayer, your nervousness and excitement grew in your chest. “Please, join hands.” The pastor said with a smile. You and Tony held each others hands and you could feel how clammy Tony’s was. You didn’t mind, you were pretty sure yours felt the same.
Tony stared down at you and your cheeks turned a bright red. You felt so lucky to be marrying Tony. Your heart felt renewed and full, nothing was missing. “Now, if you have any vows, you may speak.” The pastor said. Tony cleared his throat and smiled at you.
“I prepared a long speech, I even wrote it down and everything. Too bad Sam threw up on it.” Tony started, the guests and yourself laughing. You could see Sam peeking out the side of the line of groomsmen, shooting Tony a glare. You snorted and Tony laughed harder.
“Well, here it goes from memory. Y/N, I can’t begin to tell you how many times I made an excuse to have Nick put us as partners on missions. I wanted to be the one to protect you, to make sure you were always okay, and to be the one to help you when you needed it.
You were in love with someone else, so I had to wait for you to go through that and make your way to me in the end, and I’m so happy you did. I was in love with you while you were hung up on somebody else; someone who didn’t deserve to be loved by someone so amazing.
You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I promise to let you steal my food, I promise I won’t work late nights in the lab on an invention I’ll never finish, even if you’re there in my chair, supporting me. I promise I’ll always be here and I’ll never let you out of my sight. Unless Clint accidentally shoots me in the eyes with an arrow and screws me up for good.”
Everyone laughed again and you could hear Clint wheezing. You covered your mouth to keep from laughing like a maniac. Tony looked down at you with watery eyes from laughing so hard. You all calmed down and you rested your hand back in Tony’s, still giggling softly to yourself.
“I promise to be yours, for as long as you’ll have me. If it’s forever, I’ve completed the biggest and most amazing mission of all: Capturing your heart.” Tony finished, his voice cracking at the end. Your heart swelled in your chest and you tried not to cry.
You took a deep breath, calming your breathing. You definitely couldn’t top Tony’s vows and you could’ve sworn you were going to cry your eyes out any second if you didn’t start talking.
“I’d like to start off by saying I appreciate all those times you were a shoulder to cry on. All the while I was crying over someone else, I know now that I was getting all of those tears out so you could fill me with the happiness my heart longed for. You, Tony, are my knight in shining armor. Quite literally; your suit is so bright.” You said, causing everyone to laugh.
“I fell in love with you as I was healing, and that brought us even closer. I can be myself around you, I can eat your food and mine without your judgement. I can sit in your very comfortable chair and watch you work on your inventions all night long and never grow tired of the way your tongue sticks out when you’re concentrating.
I promise to let you yell at the television as loud as you can when the people on it don’t do what you’re yelling for them to do. I promise to not get mad when you tinker with my weapons and completely break them. I promise to always be by your side when you need me the most, especially when you’re screaming bloody murder because you saw a spider in the bathroom.” You said with a giggle, hearing everyone laughing again.
Tony dramatically rolled his eyes but smiled down at you, his thumbs rubbing your hands.
“Tony Stark, you are my Ironman, the love of my life, the best man a woman could ever wish for. If I had to be stuck with someone forever, I’m glad it’s you.” You finished, your eyes filling with tears again. The guests cheered and clapped.
“Now, the rings.” The pastor said with a smile. Sam smirked and spoke into his watch. “Redwing, do your thing.” He said. Suddenly, Redwing flew in with two strings hanging that had yours and Tony’s rings attached to them.
You laughed as Tony untied them. Smiling, Tony handed them to the pastor. You and Tony thanked Redwing before it flew back down the aisle and through the doors you entered from. The pastor started to pray over the rings and he handed you Tony’s and gave Tony your ring.
The pastor had you and Tony repeat the traditional wedding vows before you both slipped on each others rings. “You may kiss the bride.” The pastor said in a louder voice, setting his Bible down and clapping his hands.
You leaned up on your toes and crashed your lips into Tony’s, letting your left hand rest on his neck. Tony pulled you close and you felt his arm lift into the air, pumping his fist. The guests all laughed and cheered and you couldn’t be happier than you were in this moment.
You found your other half.
