draiad: What about steve finally getting a smile out of Bucky?
-Steve sassing at Tony
'I heard that Rogers - you are officially off the christmas card list'
A week later Tony takes them both to starbucks and Steve’s like ‘WAT?’
Tony’s all ‘I THOUGHT YOU BOTH MIGHT APPRECIATE THE PORTMANTEAU’
*proceeds to explain it to Bucky*
Steve goes scarlet
'We're not- Bucky and I aren't - STARK!'
It’s hard to find a partner with a similar life experience. [insp]
c’mon Steve she used to be a master spy, some things are just important
inspired by a wonderful tag on my hair swishing Nats (because yes I’m that creepy loser who reads every single tag none of you are safe from my prying eyes) —

additionally, I CANNOT GET OVER Steve’s fucking Sadness Errands that he keeps running around DC, like, his schedule literally goes
6 AM: jogging
7:15: unburden soul to total stranger, lacking better options
3 PM: visit own museum exhibit to stare at the Dead Best Friend Wall
4:30: attempt meaningful human connection with sole surviving contemporary; fail due to Alzheimer’s
6 PM: dinner for one
7 PM: contemplate own loneliness, probably
the best of hot occupations, side by side.
