Winter Soldier raises Tony Stark (AU)

When Bucky Barnes is sent to kill the Starks, he does so easily until he sees their baby son in the back seat. Unable to kill him, he escapes with the child. 

Living a life on the run, Bucky slowly breaks out of his Hydra conditioning and raises the boy as his own. As Tony grows, their bond only grows stronger, even as Bucky stops ageing.

Le Prince Noir - 2017

After the color/texture study I posted on the 25th of April on Instagram, I spent more time playing with Painter 12’s watercolor tool and trying new effects. I won’t do this often because Painter 12 is such a heavy software that it often makes my computer slow down. 🙄 Reference used for the uniform. I loved the front part with the buttons. ♥

THANK YOU.

Everyone writes Sam as the replacement Bucky but guys, Bucky is trying to go into hiding because there are now TWO Steves on the loose. 

TWO of them. 

The only thing that makes him seem relatively sane is the lack of super abilities but anyone who thinks it’s a reasonable idea to attach a LIVE JET ENGINE ten inches from his asshole is nOT SANE.

do you ever think about how perfectly steve, bucky, and sam typify the 3 big wars america’s fought in over the past century?

steve is the soldier who fought in world war 2. he’s the tail end of the glory and honor of war. his reasons for fighting are clear cut, moral, as far as he can tell. but the weapons used are too deadly, too fatal for glory and honor, really. there’s the attempt to treat enemy combatants with respect, with honor, all while killing them quick than has ever been possible before. there’s the unease of the shift from the old style of fighting to the new. there’s the tiredness that only comes from a second global war in only two decades. there’s the closure that comes from unprecedented total destruction. the thought of “maybe now we can go home. maybe now we can build lives like our parents, those of us that are left.”

bucky is the soldier who fought in vietnam. he’s the one that couldn’t dodge the draft, that couldn’t evade the fight no matter how hard he tried. he’s the one who followed the orders he had to, and rebelled against all the others. his uniform was askew, more civvies than not. he didn’t look a soldier, and he didn’t fight like one either. he didn’t know why he was fighting, who he was fighting. he saw too many innocents die by the hands of his comrades, of himself. he felt agent orange burn his lungs, saw orphans crying in the streets. he came home, the rat-a-tat of machine guns echoing in his ears, always. he disembarked a plane, and was spat on by anti-war protesters. he couldn’t even be angry– he agreed with them. he participated in the winter soldier investigations, confessed what he’d been forced to do, and that almost abated the weight on his shoulders. almost.

sam is the soldier who fought in afghanistan. the modern soldier, with just as much shit as the rest of them. the difference is, where steve was greeted with celebrations and bucky was greeted with vitriol, sam is overlooked, forgotten. he suffers in silence, expected to endure without protest. sam copes, but not all vets are able to do the same. afghan war vets are the ones who take their own lives in droves, the unacknowledged, unknown aftershocks from an invasion founded on half-formed ambitions from men in suits who’d never have to bear the real burden. sam is the modern day vet, unknown, unseen, unthanked.

No wonder they’re all Captain America

So is Nat the Cold War? People don’t see a soldier when they look at her, because she really isn’t, just like the cold war was never really a “war”. Nat is the spy on the run, the power never fully unleashed, the constant sense of fear that there is no backing down, no running– there are no vets of the cold war, but there are always the living casualties.

nailed it

(and this is a jump off from a post I just saw @mcgregorswench reblog, but it was a Supernatural lean and I didn’t want to sway their post with a different fandom)

but

The People vs Bucky Barnes … Legal Defence … Elle Woods. 

Bucky chokes on his own tongue - You’re not serious right? They could actually sentence me to death here and you’re pinning this all on a girl I think I saw in the June issue of Playboy?

Elle - Wrong on both counts, Mr. Barnes. The state of New York abolished the death penalty in 2007, and it was the July edition. Fourth of July edition, actually. She pauses to wink at Steve, who flushes hard. Turning back to the man sat incredulously in front of her, she assesses him with a quick once over, top to toe. Believe me, you have nothing to worry about. Apart from that hair. What, do they not have conditioner in Russia?

Publié à l'origine par motivationalstudents

Okay so this might not be really coherent or sensible but I think I figured out why this idea grabbed me so hard. It’s because Bucky doesn’t want to fight, he doesn’t want to hurt anyone, he wants the chance to be gentle, to be kind. He wants to be, in a sort of way, harmless (witness me resisting the obvious pun here), which he can never be and which no one, I mean no one, will ever see him as. Not even those who love him best are ever going to look at him, no matter what the future holds, and see him as someone who’s harmless, because he can never be that, no matter how much he might want to be. He’s always going to be dangerous, even if he gets the triggers out of his head. People who don’t love him, who don’t trust him, are going to look at him and see a weapon. They don’t know what’s inside.

People (those who love her excepted, obviously) look at Elle and see someone who’s pretty much harmless, fluffy, the very opposite of dangerous (unless someone’s seeing her as a passive danger, an object lesson of privilege). They don’t see what’s inside: the strength, the steel, the smarts (hell, at first neither did she). Like Bucky, what the world sees from the outside is not what is at their core. What people see when they look at Elle, Bucky would maybe like a little bit of that. And maybe Elle would like a little bit of what people see when they look at Bucky, because
on her chosen battlefield

she’s just as dangerous as Bucky can be on his, although it wasn’t Bucky’s choice (but maybe not; the element of surprise and all that). Sure, she’s also kind and silly and gentle, but when it’s time for war? She’s the Soldier and she will lay waste to Bucky’s enemies.

So in many ways they’re the same, but imagine them in the court room, Elle defending Bucky. Imagine everyone watching the two of them, being afraid of Bucky, not having any idea that the one they should be looking out for, the one who was going to burn their world down around their ears, was Elle. And god, imagine how damned protective she’d be of Bucky as she came to know everything he’d been through. Everything that had been done to him. Because she’d have to know. Your lawyer can’t defend you if they’d don’t know everything. Privilege exists for a reason.

Imagine her giving him Bruiser to hold when he started to get too stressed, started to shut down, in their pre-trial prep: “Because Bruiser scares easily and he needs someone he knows will protect him.” Bucky staring down at this tiny, tiny dog sitting in his metal hand, looking up at him fearlessly, and then staring across at this tiny blonde woman, who should be afraid of him and isn’t, who looks like she should be modelling or something somewhere, but he knows that look in her eye. That’s a look that says she’s not going to stop fighting for him. That says she believes him. That she believes in him. And she’s rattling off case law, at least he thinks it’s case law, and Latin like it’s going out of style and something in him starts to ease and he scratches the dog behind the ears and starts telling her everything he can remember. Things he can barely handle thinking about some days.

Because Elle is a warrior. She’s fierce. She’ll fight for him and she’s not going to stop. Remember, trial by lawyer is a just a prettied up version of trial by combat. Elle Woods is amazing and she and Bucky Barnes would be an unstoppable combination.

Imagine how great it would be if they’d ever made a sequel to Legally Blonde. What a shame they never did that.

Esp. If she had to deal directly with Hydra (see her Congressional experience - I never watched the sequel. Probably should fix that).

The ‘well, I thought Sen. Stern was just a regular misogynistic asshole creep, but the Hydra revelation certainly explained a lot, and created a basis for a kick-ass class action suit’ plot-line alone would make for awesomeness. 

Elle Woods, Esq. for the Defense and the Win. 

I did the thing. 

Justice is Blonde 

The United States vs Bucky Barnes.

The Winter Soldier is called to account for his crimes. He needs a miracle. He needs a decent lawyer. He needs Elle Woods. He just doesn’t know it yet.

“You have amazing bone structure. Very classic. Very James Dean.” Elle said, settling into the chair next to him with a magazine, her blonde hair twisted into little bright blue rollers. “Did you ever consider modelling?”

“Between the Depression, the war and then brainwashing, no, it never came up.” Bucky answered, staring at himself in the mirror.

Wait, is this…? I had never noticed this

realisation of Steve not needing his help anymore

was this really necessary

It’s also Bucky being more than a little upset that they turned his gentle, harmless friend—who Bucky wanted to PROTECT from the horrors of war—into a fighting machine.

was that really necessary

it’s also Bucky realizing that he can no longer protect his best friend no matter how hard he tries. he’s utterly helpless now, even after the war is over. they’ll always be wanting steve to fight this or that, and bucky won’t be able to do a darn thing to protect him.

#now was THAT really necessary

It’s also Bucky taking the 5 seconds he has of Steve not paying attention to him so he can allow himself to process all these emotions without worrying Steve. If you watch Bucky through the movies, you’ll notice he always makes sure to look like he’s 100% fine if other people are looking at him. Fighting with Steve, but smiling at their dates. Recently tortured, but walking confidently by Steve’s side. Basically a mess, but all “Let’s hear it for Captain America!” It’s a pattern, really. Even in the flashback in CATWS, you can see he looks a lot less confident when Steve isn’t looking at him than when Steve is.

Also, Seb has mentioned that researching WW2, what left the deepest impression was how quickly everybody dies. You get attached to someone only to watch their heads being blown up in front of you the next day. I’m sure this influenced how he chose to act this scene. Because you can bet by the time this scene takes place, Bucky has seen many people - hell, maybe even friends - die, and recently, he’s had to see his whole unit be killed or captured by HYDRA. This certainly plays a role here. It’s not just a general sense of “I can’t protect Steve anymore,” it’s more like “I don’t know if Steve will live till next week.” It’s very real, very immediate. It’s a concrete prediction more than a vague fear. And if Steve’s survives, there’s still the fact Bucky knows what’s like to be changed by war, and Steve will be changed by it, which Bucky certainly hates. Either way, he loses the Steve he knew, even more than he’s already lost, with the whole “Steve Rogers is suddenly a super soldier” deal.

I’d say this scene is wartime Bucky in a nutshell. He handles the entire crowd and this whole Captain America propaganda thing without hesitation, he smiles at Steve and makes sure Steve enjoys the moment instead of pulling some “I did my duty” bullshit, and only then he allows himself to be overwhelmed by the fear that comes with being able to think 48923740 worst case scenarios in two seconds. If we can trust interviews with cast and crew, this eventually becomes his role in the war, basically - he thinks fast and does his job protecting Captain America and the missions, he takes care of Steve on a personal level by shielding him from the worst of the war as much as he can, and only then, if there’s time and Steve isn’t looking, he thinks about how the war is affecting him.

But anyway, overall, this scene is about overwhelming loss of everything Bucky knows, as well as an attempt to hide this as well as he can. And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that in the 4th and 5th gifs, Seb looks a lot like comics!Bucky does when he says goodbye to his younger sister, thinking he’ll never see her again and almost breaking down in tears, but unwilling to show her he’s scared.
