WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
YOU KNOW WHEN I WRITE POETRY SHIT GETS REAL
The doll continued to do as he was told.
Without question, with ruthlessness, with anger so bold.
Ships flew above his head, beneath his feet,
All around in the wind at heights so steep.
And there came that man, that same man that said:
That his name was Bucky, and that he thought he was dead.
A great fight they did have while the world just spun on,
As three carriers took aim with a bright red LOCKED ON.
For many a tense moment Captain Rogers persisted,
And soon Hydra’s efforts, beaten, successfully resisted.
The Winter Soldier pressed on, still hellbent on his mission,
But Cap merely sighed and discarded protection.
He punched and kicked, Steve making no move,
Except to sadly smile at him, all broken and bruised.
An in his confusion, the Soldier’s button was then pressed,
When with a weak voice, Steve said what he had said.
“I’m with you until the end of the line.”
And the world came back as the sky burst in flames,
And planes fell from place, down with it Steve and his dear James.
In the water they went, down in black cold abyss,
Where Bucky remembered Steve’s smile, and the time he had missed.
And so he saved Captain, brought him to the shore and all,
While high above them, the last helicarrier was doomed to fall.
Days later, all alone, Steve sat at a table,
With a sketchbook in hand, graphite scratching well and able
The face of a friend he had long since missed
The hope of reuniting so painfully dismissed—
When a shadow cast over him and a gruff voice spoke out loud:
“Is this seat taken?”, he turned and saw a smile so proud.
Bucky returned to him after all, and everything will be fine.
Of course, after all, they’re together till the end of the line.this is amazing
sometimes it’s really hard not to hate this country.
Not only does it make sense, it’s one of my favorite tropes that isn’t written enough, holy shit.
It had been nearly three hours since Tony had seen Bucky - the present Bucky, the more scarred and traumatized one, not the one in the blue coat with the flippant attitude currently locked in a room in the tower to avoid a paradox. When he found Bucky, it was on his way out the door, a bag thrown over his shoulder.
"So, what? You were going to just slip out while no one was paying attention, is that it?" Tony asked. Bucky froze, dropped his duffle bag, and then kicked it off to the side so that it was behind a potted plant and out of sight. Tony pinched the bridge of his nose. Smooth move Barnes, he thought. Then he crossed his arms and raised an eyebrow at Bucky. "This wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact there’s a slightly younger, much more, uh, talkative version of you a couple floors down, would it?"
"Come on, there, Buckaroo," said Tony. "Use your words."
"You don’t need me," said Bucky, softly.

Ooops, I forgot I had this one. Total unabashed fluff. Comic-verse, post-winter soldier.
