Fanfic Wednesday: “Let your heart be light”


“Let your heart be light” by Relenafanel (AO3)

Pairings: Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes

Word Count: 21,122

Author’s Summary

Bucky looks like he’s had a difficult month, what with the eviction notice and all, but that’s not the reason Steve gives for allowing him to stay on his couch.

“You have somewhere to go?” Steve questioned, crossing his arms and attempting to look casual, not like he was worried for Bucky. He stepped into the apartment, ignoring how bare it was.

Bucky paused and gave him an exasperated look. “I’m not completely hopeless.”

A fic spanning from mid-November to early-February.


My Thoughts

Squee!! Christmas fluff with fake boyfriends and a snarky Bucky Barnes is all I wanted under my holiday tree this year, if I’m being honest. This fic is adorable and sweet and so much fun to read. If you appreciate the chemistry between these two and want to experience it in an entirely AU setting, in which everyone is alive and happy (mostly) and well, read this fic. Happy holidays, from your friendly, neighborhood, shipper.
