Pairing: Bucky x Reader
Warnings: idk man
A/N: I’M BAAAAACCCKKKKKKK!! FINALLY, RIGHT? I had the worst case of writers block ever. Anyways I hope ya enjoy this part, it’s been a while.
Bucky had been afraid to stop by your apartment again,
fearing that he’d end up with another black eye, courtesy of Wanda. So, he
stayed away and would try to find you around campus but it seemed as if you
weren’t attending classes which was false because he had asked Clint if you
were attending creative writing and he said yes.
You had been avoiding Bucky. You knew the places he went
when on campus so you stayed away from those spots. It was better this way. You
didn’t think you’d have the strength to see Bucky face-to-face after hearing
all the harsh words he spat at you.
It was silly to even think the handsome man would ever
reciprocate your feelings.
As you’re packing up, taking your sweet time so that you
wouldn’t run into Bucky on the way out, your professor calls you to her.
“Yes?” you question, holding onto the strap of your bag.
“I graded your make-up paper last night and might I say, it
has been the best paper you’ve ever submitted so far.” she smiled, handing you
your paper. “It had so much emotion to it, I felt like I was there, feeling
everything. You’ve really outdone yourself, Y/N.”
You smile. “Thank you so much.”
Your professor nods. “Keep it up. Your writing is
You thank her once more before leaving the building. Once
the sun hits you, you pull out your phone and call Clint.
“Yeah, hi, if this isn’t the president saying I get the key
to the city then goodbye.” he spoke and you roll your eyes.
“You’re never gonna get the key to the city, you’re not that
special.” you respond.
He scoffs. “You’re not special either. In fact, I took your
picture out of my car a few days ago.”
“Clint, I saw the picture in your car yesterday when you
took me to the store.”
“Anyways, I called to tell you that I received my make-up
“What’d you get?”
You see your car coming into view and pull your keys out
from your bag. “A perfect score. She said it’s the best paper I’ve submitted so
“See, I knew you had it in you.”
You roll your eyes. “Shut up.”
Clint laughs. “Hey, so I got this thing. It’s for-”
You stop listening to him and focus on Bucky who had just
opened the door to your creative writing class. You obviously couldn’t tell
what he was saying but panic set in and you quickly unlocked your car.
“Shit, Clint I have to go. Talk to you later.” you hang up
right in the middle of his protests. You buckle up and start your car just as he
shuts the building door with a frown etched on his face.
You back out of the parking lot, not looking back once.
Knocking on Steve’s door, you hope and pray Bucky doesn’t
answer and you let out a sigh of relief when you see Sam.
“Hey Y/N, what’s up?”
You enter the apartment and look around, half to see if
Bucky was there and half for Steve.
“You guys got lemons to spare? Wanda’s been watching some
cooking channel and she wants to try and make something from it but she needs
lemons and I’m too lazy to drive all the way to the store.” You say.
“Ummm… I think so. Let me see.” you watch Sam go into the
kitchen and open the fridge. At this time, you hear a door open from the
hallway and your heart starts beating fast. You’re expecting to see Bucky but instead
you see Steve and you start to calm down.
“Hey, Y/N. What’re you doing here?”
“Came for some lemons.” you respond.
Steve nods and Sam comes back with a bag full of 4 lemons. “Here
You take the bag and smile at your friend. “Thanks Sammy.”
“No problem. I’m coming by to eat. Need to see if Wanda put
my lemons to good use.” he says and you chuckle.
“Alright, I’ll tell her.” you say then turn to Steve. “See
you later, Blondie.”
Steve playfully rolls his eyes and bids you goodbye before
you exit their apartment.
Bucky, who had been painting in his room, heard muffled
noises over his music that was playing but he brushed it off as Steve and Sam
talking or watching a movie. It wasn’t until he heard a familiar laugh that he
turned down his music and listened carefully.
The brunette heard ‘alright, I’ll tell her’ and jumped up,
placing his paint palette on his desk before busting out of his room and
running into the living room. He came to a halt when he saw only Steve and Sam.
“Where’s Y/N?” Bucky questioned, frowning.
“She just left.” Sam says, flopping down on the couch with
the remote in his hand.
“Buck…” Steve frowned, placing a hand on his friend’s
“I gotta get back to painting.” he says, shrugging the
blonde off before heading back to his room.
A couple of days pass and Bucky’s about had it. He needed to
talk to you which was why he was standing at the door, looking through the
peephole as he waited for you to get back from your classes.
“What’re you doing?” Sam questioned as he walked into the
“Waiting for Y/N.” was his response.
“Okay… that’s not creepy at all.” Sam checked his phone
before nudging Bucky. “Move, I gotta go meet Cynthia at that coffee shop.”
Bucky steps back and looks at his friend. “Cynthia, huh? You
two a thing now?”
“Yeah, it just kind of happened.” He shrugged with a smile.
Bucky pats his friend on his shoulder. “I’m happy for you,
“Thanks.” Sam says goodbye to the brunette before leaving
He goes back to looking through the peephole and when he
does, he sees you passing the door. Immediately, he pulls the door open and
steps out, calling your name.
He hadn’t rehearsed what he was going to say to you so when
you turned around and he saw your face for the first time in weeks, his mind
You stood there, slightly panicking as the two of you stared
at each other awkwardly. Breathing in sharply, you take a step back and Bucky
reaches for you.
You stare at his outstretched hand before looking up at him
and sighing. “What do you want, James?”
Bucky’s heart shattered.
You would jokingly call him James but this… this was nowhere
near being a joke.
“Please, don’t call me James, Y/N…” it came out as a
You sighed again. “What do you want?”
Bucky took a deep breath. “I’m sorry for the way I reacted
when you told me how you felt. I-” he sighed. “I was mad that you waited so
long to tell me. I was mad because you waited till I moved on to tell me how
you felt. It’s not an excuse, what I did and how I responded was completely unnecessary.
I just thought that you were saying all that because Vis told you how I felt. I
didn’t think you were being sincere and I acted out. But I’m sorry. It hurt
seeing you cry and it hurt when I got punched twice and it hurt even worse when
you started avoiding me.” he takes a cautious step towards you. “I just want to
make things right.”
The fact that he just said he thought Vis told you how he
felt completely flew over your head.
You think back to when Wanda held ice to her fist, saying
she punched a wall and you shake your head.
Silence filled the air as you stared at the charm bracelet
on your wrist, playing with the angel wings locket that had Bucky’s picture in
it while Bucky stared at you. He opened his mouth a couple of times, wanting to
speak but not knowing what to say so he just closed his mouth.
Finally, he sighed. “I broke up with Kristen.”
Your eyes snap up to meet his. “Oh… sorry to hear that.”
“It’s fine. It wasn’t a bad break up or anything. We… we
broke up because of you.” Your eyes widen and once Bucky plays back exactly
what he just said in his head, his eyes widen too. “I didn’t mean it like that!
I just- I mean-” he stops talking and takes a deep breath to calm himself. “I’m
in love with you, Y/N. I have been for a while but I’ve never said anything.”
“You have a specific type. I’ve caught onto it throughout
the years of us being friends. You like high-classed guys. Guys who clean up
nicely and play golf and do all of that boring shit… but that’s not me. I don’t
fit into that. I didn’t think I was your type so I never said anything. I
thought if I waited it out that my feelings would go away. Obviously, I was
wrong.” Bucky takes your hand in his, never taking his eyes off yours. “Please,
Your eyes start to water as you shake your head, pulling
your hand away from Bucky.
“I can’t.” you say. “I’m sorry Bucky, but I can’t. You hurt
You take a step back but he follows.
“Let me fix this. I don’t want to lose you. I can’t lose
you.” His eyes filled with tears. “Please let me fix this.”
“Bucky,” you sighed.
“Bucky just… give me some time, alright? I need time.” You say
and he nods, wiping his eyes before his tears could fall.
“Okay, I’ll give you time.” the handsome brunette runs his
fingers through his hair as he steps back. “I know this is a stretch but will
you, uh, come to my art show? It’s this Friday.” you give him a hesitant look
and he licks his bottom lip. “I’m not asking as the guy who’s madly in love
with you. I’m asking as your friend.”
You exhale loudly before nodding. “I’ll think about it.”
A/N: I’ll fix any mistakes in the morning. I hope ya like this part :) tell me what ya think!
A Christmas-to-New-Years-to-Valentine’s-Day-Gift: “Your Arms Around Me”
IT’S FINALLY DONE! AND IT ONLY TOOK ME THREE MONTHS! (nervous laughter)
But here it is! “Your Arms Around Me”, a… romantic short comic starring @procerperficio and @alternatefiction, based on the song by Jens Lekman (about a man who is so distracted by his girlfriend’s entrancing beauty that he accidentally cuts off the tip of his finger). I changed a few words to fit the situation, and I pretty much had to invent an imaginary kitchen for the first few scenes. Also, I realize that setting this mid-August isn’t exactly the most seasonal gift. And that’s about it as far as disclaimers go.
This is the first time I’ve really done a full project on my own time, all my work comprises of either rough sketches or small pen drawings, and the comics I’ve done are either very rough or very short. This was my very first time drawing storyboards first, then going in with pencil, then doing over in pen. It’s been quite the experience, and I feel that I’ve come out a stronger artist than before, if I should allow myself the praise. Now, I’ll shut myself up before this becomes an essay. I hope you enjoy this!
(Oh, pssst, Cim&Eva: I’ll be leaving the link to something like an author’s note in your inboxes, so click ‘em when you have a minute!)
So I decided to make my own alien race within the keroro gunso universe They are based off jellyfish if it wasn’t obvious I’m probably just going to have their race name be Jelly for now
Now for the basic info:
head/hat thingies are changeable, as in they differ from one jelly to the next
they can have actual hands or just nubs(nubs are the default)
tentacles/arms can get longer or shorter
they can have up to six arms at a time
act like hair and arms act like a jellyfish’s tentacles(hence why they
can have six at a time, because jellyfish have lots of tentacles)
bodies are slightly changeable/accessorizeable
some part may be transparent, depends
they can float only slightly off the ground
are about the same size as keronians, however they can be a little
taller depending on the jelly(or smaller, however that’s usually if it
is a child jelly)
they are a very very old race
they do have eyes, it just depends on the head/hat thingies shape on if they show at all or not
they can wear cloths or none at all(genitalia does not show)
the ones up there that i have made, one looks like it has cloths on,
that’s not cloths it is part of the jelly itself, its an accent of their
i recommend using actual pictures of jellyfish to design one(that’s how i made all of mine)
That’s about all i have for now, ill make another post later for the races background! If you would like to make your own, please feel free too!! However, remember to credit me for the race and tag me or @ me so I can see them!!! I hope you guys like them!!
P.S. If you have any questions about them just send me an ask or PM me !! 8)
I went to bed then had a nightmare, so I decided to watch some youtube to relax! Went ahead and did this of @therealjacksepticeye because I really feel like he helps me sleep better <3 oddly enough, this didn’t really take as long as my other pieces, but it has the same love put into it nonetheless!!
