Bucky was always there for Steve. He taught him to fight, looked out for him, set him up on dates… and in ‘38 when Steve’s mom died, Bucky Barnes was always there to pick up the pieces. Now it’s 2014– and when Bucky comes home, shell-shocked and broken, Steve finally has a chance to return the favour. (A sort of continuation/explanation of this! )
I so bawled during this.
Avoiding work so I wrote a little thing
When Sam first met Clint, he wasn’t called Clint. Sam can’t remember what Clint was going by then. Sam didn’t get an introduction. Clint was just there one day. Sam remembers first seeing Clint leaning against a Humvee in a loose sprawl, lips quirked up like he couldn’t imagine a better place to be, like he couldn’t feel the oppressive heat or the sand that always seemed to get everywhere. Clint smiled a lot then. He didn’t carry his gun with him and didn’t seem to care that they were in a warzone. Walked around all easy with gear that was too fresh. He looked like a soldier but moved like something else, like one of those shadows from some unnamed agency that always seemed to pop up when shit was about to get a little too real. The guy was weird but he was still the best shot Sam had ever seen. Riley called him ‘the asshole’ and the name stuck.
