Friday Fics Fix - Bucky Isn't the Problem In This House


'“Huh,” Sam said. “You’re the ghost.”'

It seems like I'm drawn to gothicky SamBucky lately.

Not sure whether this is my fault or just the way things are... nah, let's be honest: it's my fault. I am trash. 😅

(Fandom notes:

SamBucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between the MCU (Marvel)'s Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes). Also known as WinterFalcon.)

So, we've had Sam and Bucky in a summer camp horror, and Bucky as depressed (possibly) immortal being, now get ready for Ghost Bucky and Occultist Sam!

*jazz hands*

...I love fanfiction! 😅

The basic gist here is that Bucky died in World War 2 and is now a ghost. Sam has been called into the house he haunts as an exorcist, but things quickly get complicated.

Because Bucky isn't the problem in this house.

And he's kinda handsome. And funny. And sweet. And... ah sh**, Sam's in trouble here. 😈😉

I loved how well-done this was.

Like Sam's back-story of paranormal happenings wasn't overly dramatic, but it was fleshed out enough that it didn't feel like an add-on.

And the details of the haunting itself - and the choices Bucky and Sam had to make - were really clever.

- and you know I love me a good ghost story! 😎

Content Warnings for this one, then:

- horror elements

- blood and injury

- grief

- death

References to:

- war

- Nazis

- Nazi experiments

- inappropriate professor/student relations

...I think that's everything, but always be careful dearest nerdlets!
