Pairing: Sam Wilson/Bucky Barnes
Word Count: 4492
Warning: you may get a cavity from all this sweetness
Sam’s just chilling watching TV one evening when Bucky comes in and stares at him silently for a minute or two before sitting down on the couch. He’s pretty close to Sam.
Okay, he’s really close to Sam. Like, Sam would be using the word ‘cuddling’ if it wasn’t so bizarre.
“What,” he says, carefully not looking at Bucky, and Bucky huffs a sigh.
“Steve’s not here,” he says as if it’s obvious. “Don’t make it weird. Just- shut up.”
Just…real quick…let me get this out of my system…
So, these two have snark and real tension, but the beauty of this pairing is that they both have had suffering, and trauma, and each is equipped and ready to help the other deal with theirs, especially after the final episode of FATWS.
This fic takes place shortly after CA:CW, but you know what? It’s so darn cute that I’m just gonna imagine that this is what Sam and Bucky are up to when they’re not fixing up Sarah’s boat or saving the world from terrorist organizations and/or problematic politics. Like…this fic had me major grinning and I can’t help but grin again now as I write about it. If you need something short and fluffy, look no further!
(Also, read the other fics by this author. Lots of Sam/Bucky goodies in her repertoire.)
