- person: what you thinking about?
- me: oh, y'know, just wondering whether steve rogers has a refractory period
do you ever think about how it only took steve rogers saying bucky’s name to unravel 70 years worth of brainwashing because i think about this every single fucking day
person: are you over bucky barnes yet
basically I just want 300 stories in which Bucky rediscovers pants feelings and undergoes confusing assassin puberty. That’s all I want.
Like, Bucky’s watching from a rooftop in Moldova through a scope, looking in through the window of Steve’s hotel room, and Steve comes out of the bathroom with a towel slung low around his hips, and Bucky is used to nightmares and used to flashbacks and used to a million terrible, horrifying things, and the reaction he has to the sight of water beading on Steve Rogers’ shoulders is not any of those at all
and it’s not bad (the fact that it’s not bad is also bewildering) but it’s really fucking confusing, and it’s going to a while before he knows what to do with it
that night of surveillance is going to get him through some tough times, probably.

I THINK WHAT PISSED ME OFF THE MOST IN CAP 2 IS HOW LITTLE MILK PIERCE POURS IN THAT GLASS. LIKE IT’S THE TINIEST PORTION OF MILK IMAGINABLE. “DO YOU WANT SOME FUCKING MILK” NO LET ME POUR MY OWN FUCKING MILK. AND LET ME POUR THE LEAST. POSSIBLE. MILK. I CAN. POSSIBLY POUR INTO THIS GLASS. THE SMALLEST PORTION OF MILK POSSIBLE. U HAD AN ENTIRE CARTON. AND A LARGE GLASS. AND YOU POUR WHAT. LIKE. 2 INCHES OF MILK INTO THAT GLASS. PIERCE PISSED ME OFF THE MOST IN THAT SCENE.
I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE
