Bucky and Steve are all cuddled up on the couch, Steve in his plaid pj bottoms and Bucky in Steve’s favorite t-shirt and his own shorts. They haven’t left the couch, except for bathroom breaks, in over 48 hours. They’ve been holed up in their little apartment with enough junk food for a small army and every noteworthy film ever made.
Studying, or something. Understanding this new version of America. The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Every episode of Star Wars, in order of production. Somewhere between Mean Girls and Forrest Gump, Steve gets up for a bathroom break.
He untangles his legs from Buckys and leaves him on the couch, snuggled up with his blanket and a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos.
Steve walks back into the livingroom, twirling his pants drawstring and finds Bucky on his phone, chuckling at the screen. “What’s so funny?”
"Nothing, " Bucky smiles. "Just stand still for a minute."
"Okay?" Steve places his hands on his hips, shifting his weight awkwardly.
Bucky looks at him again and laughs and then slowly pulls a chip from his bag and holds it up in front of his phone, pointing down. “Oh my God.”
Steve is momentarily blinded by the flash from Bucky’s camera. “What?! What was that for?”
"You really do have the shoulder to hip ratio of a Dorito." Bucky grins.
Steve blushes and groans. “Oh God, please don’t send that to Tony.”
This is AWESOME
My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.

Ugh. Now I just want to write fluff. But in my Bucky fic, there’s almost no room for fluff….especially where I’m at. (He’s kinda being tortured by Hydra at the moment.) And in my actual book I’ve been working on, My two main characters are a little upset with each other and haven’t even actually gotten to the stage with fluff. But I adore fluff. Especially following angst.
On a side note, if you pull out a journal and write during your breaks at work, your coworkers WILL ask what you’re writing. And then they won’t stop talking about writing. I learned that the hard way. (In college, no one even noticed….because well, everyone was writing something.) So instead of being that weirdo who’s writing a fic based off of the first Captain America film, exploring the horrors that Bucky was subjected to, I’m “writing about a captive soldier in WWII.” As for my Alice in Wonderland rewrite, people don’t think it’s weird if you say you’re doing a rewrite.

I just love the idea of Steve and Bucky watching movies together like they used to back in 40s (: plus they have plenty of awesome movies to catch up on, lucky bastards
I got lazy with anatomy and just everything, so excuse me some mistakes
That finger/hand hold-y thing is my favorite thing ever. For any ship. Ever. You cannot tell me it’s not the best. Because it is the best. It’s just somehow so super intimate. It just makes me so happy.
this is good and all but can I just
this man is a brilliant actor
he don’t count… because we’re not entirely sure if he’s acting or if he’s seriously iron man….

I’m so at a stopping point. With much adjusting, he’s starting to cooperate in the smallest ways. (I still can’t get his nose to be shaped correctly.) Here you all go.
Frustrated as all hell and feeling personally victimized by my Seb drawing.
I’m serious. His freaking face should NOT be this damn difficult to draw! I have never had so much trouble with a charcoal drawing before! What the Hell, Seb? Why are you giving me difficulty? I chose a reference that had good lighting, contrast, and is a straight on face shot. LOOK!
Like, I can see the differences. That’s what’s so frustrating! I can see the differences, and I know what I need to do, but I just can’t do it for some reason. I know my drawing needs to be darker, but it’s not getting there no matter how much charcoal I add. I know his nose needs more curve on the bridge to get it right. Yes, his irises need to be darker. I can tell that one of his eyes is completely off in shape, but, as I said, no matter how many times I go over it I just can’t get it right. And yes, I’m aware that I’m far from being done with the drawing, but how can I finish it ever if I can get the shapes right before hand?
Who else shares these frustrations?
