So, um. We Should Get Jerseys is not my AU. It belongs to offtide, who draws so gorgeously it makes me want to cry a little bit, and then it makes me want to write things to go with the gorgeous art. So I asked if I could, and the answer came back yes, and I started noodling around with ideas and scenes I wanted to see.
And then today I got so hyped up over the new AoU stuff that I just couldn’t work any more on the angsty M&T prompt that’s currently the primary WIP, so I thought, well, I’ll do a little bit on this fic, see if I can at least do that first scene that I’d kind of mapped out.
I ended up writing three scenes that probably make up one complete chapter. My brain is broken.
This is probably nothing like what offtide actually has in mind for the AU, for which I profusely apologize. Story is under the cut. All 2000 words of it, because my brain is broken.
Sam should be everyone’s fave
and I need to see more of Sam talking to birds
birds are great. sam is great. bird + sam = 2(great)
Bucky kinda likes when Darcy paints his nails. It makes his real hand feel special too.
I’m for protective!Bucky headcanons as much as the next person, but can we add in some Peggy? She’s at least as recklessly brave as Steve (more so if you consider the fact that she’d be easier to kill and thus has reason to be more cautious) and I just really like to think about Bucky spending most of his time during the war yelling at Steve for being a self-sacrificing idiot only to realize that Peggy and Steve are smirking and exchanging looks because they’re both totally ridiculous daredevils. (✿◠‿◠)
steve leading the way
peggy right behind reloading
bucky chasing them both cursing uselessly
#BASICALLY #I CAN IMAGINE BUCKY GETTING TO KNOW PEGGY GOES FROM ‘DANG YOU’RE HOT’ TO ‘I LIKE YOU BECAUSE YOU LIKE STEVE LIKE I DO’ #TO ‘NO WAIT WAIT YOU DON’T HAVE TO PROVE ANYTHING STEVE PUT THAT DOWN’ #’HEY PEGGY GUESS HOW MANY DOZEN SOLDIERS I HAD TO PICK OFF THE WALLS FOR YOU TO SNEAK IN BECAUSE IT WAS A LOT’ #’OH YOU TWO HAD HYDRA ON THE ROPES DID YOU THAT’S GREAT THAT’S REALLY GREAT’ (via intrikate88)
you’re my friend
