i would take naps in forests every day if bugs didnt exist
Setting: 1940s. (Cap One)
What if Bucky didnt grab Steve’s shield in an attempt to shoot at that gigantor HYDRA soldier and Steve offed the fucker and they captured Zolaf successfully.
What if Bucky was alive and Steve still went after Red Skull head on as planned. Steve being protective and wanting to be the leader that he is, tells Bucky to stay with Peggy and the Colonel, keep patrol not putting him in the line of fire again. Steve being on his own still ended up putting the ship in the water. Not only leaving Peggy, but now Bucky behind. Peggy made word on that dance and all Bucky could say was “till the end of the line, i’m with ya. Stay with me Punk. Please…”
FAST FORWARD 70 years: Current day.
Steve is found, thawed, brought into terms with what has happened and who he lost. What kind of Cap would the world have. And what, we wonder happened to Bucky over 70 years, i mean sure there’s the obvious, easy answer, but if Peggy is still alive, what of Bucky? what did Bucky do in his 70 years with Steve gone? Search for him? Move on? Shelter into himself? Rub shoulders with the wrong people…In hopes of desperately finding Steve? What if the Winter Soldier was inevitable.
I don’t care if you see it as platonic or romantic or what have you, you can’t deny that Bucky Barnes loves Steve Rogers and Steve Rogers loves Bucky Barnes.
