Friday Fics Fix - Bucky Needs Advice... Maybe Not From Them


'...“Not in a bad way! Just, y'know, since you started dating him you guys are like a package—”

“I'm not dating Sam,” Bucky stops him.

Peter’s mask’s eyes narrow up at him, confused. “Really?”'

Yes it's The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS). Again.

Yes it's Queer. Again.

Because in this house we allow Bucky Barnes to be his Achillean, Queer-a**, self, with the actual full-on, representation, and not the Queerbaiting b*llsh**. 😎

Apart from being TFATWS, and being Queer, this week's fic is also batsh**.

See, Bucky doesn't know what to do about maybe, sort of, kind of, definitely, being in love with Sam - so he wanders around New York and other superheroes randomly give him dating advice.

Because apparently a) New York is overrun with superheroes (which is actually a common problem in the comics - they're always showing up to fight each other's bad guys, and sometimes it gets awkward) -

- and b) Bucky is that desparate for a sounding board right now that he will spill his guts to some random dude he just met who seems even remotely interested.

Those other superheroes just happen to be Deadpool, Daredevil, and Spider-Man.

AKA some of the most awesomest superheroes out there πŸ˜‰

We have the MCU (Marvel movies) version of Spider-man, I think the Netflix series version of Daredevil - haven't seen it, so not sure - and a hybrid of movie Deadpool and comics Deadpool, heavy on the movie side.

And it's pretty fun, all in all! πŸ˜…

I have kind of a soft spot for fics which have Bucky interacting with Deadpool.

...Mostly because they are just so different that there's a lot of room to play around their differences and similarities.

Generally I just love seeing Bucky interacting with other characters generally - especially when they're nice to him! πŸ˜…

Because Deadpool is present, though, there's some NSFW humour/references here. Warnings- wise, there's also:

- general violence

- references to past trauma

...And some minor MCU SPOILERS.

I think that's everything, but for reasons unknown, my Adobe software has decided to replace all the apostrophes in my copy of this fic -

(you can download ePub from AO3 so you can read it on your e-reader/laptop! Woo!) 

- with the Welsh letter Ε΅, so the readability of it has been seriously reduced. (Unless Daredevil really is from HellΕ΅s Kitchen.)

(I don't even know how this happened - if anyone does, please help! πŸ˜…)

I've given it a quick glance over on the AO3 website itself, and like I said, I think I got everything, but you never know.

...So as always, be careful while reading!

This week's fic, then, is:

unreliable love advice from unusual people, as met by bucky barnes by joshriku

Which superhero would you most like to see Bucky interact with?

Does anyone know why my apostrophes have turned into the letter Ε΅?!

  1. Can't help you with your techy problem. But I can help you with your other question! I would love to see Bucky interact with the Guardians folks. Obviously we see a little bit of it in the later Avengers movies, but I want a whole movie dedicated to Bucky kicking ass with Gamora and sassing it up with Rocket.

    1. Ha, I loved in Infinity War where (mild SPOILERS for anyone else reading the comments!) they're on the battlefield, and Rocket starts fighting alongside Bucky, and the look on his face is like, 'Y'know what, why not? This is my life, apparently. Let's just go with it.' Lol!

    2. Yes! I need more of that content!
