Did he hesitate?
#looking down and to the right is associated with emotional responses tied to memory and a person’s concentration on their internal dialogue #so this is probably the first time the winter soldier’s heard bucky barnes’ voice in his head in nearly seventy years #(⊙ ‿ ⊙ ✿) #i’ll never be happy again
Not to over-saturate ur lives with THE WINTER SOLDIER media but I just full blast lost it cuz as I was scrollin real quick, I thought this was some kind of Winter Soldier née Bucky Barnes fanart where he has draped himself in the comforting warmth of the American flag, that is to say, the closest thing to STEVE ROGERS’ arms he can have at this exact moment. BUT IT’S NOT. IT’S JUST A CHILL GURL. BUT MAYBE IF U SQUINT UR EYES AND PRAY.
WHAT IS THIS AND WHY DOES IT EXIST?

SHAKING MY FISTS AT THE SKY
Bucky/Steve AU: Bucky doesn’t do this sort of thing, and Senator James Barnes certainly would never even think about hiring a hooker (escort, Steve’s a high class escort)—Bucky’s got a reputation to uphold. But then Steve Rogers (SHIELD, the agency Bucky uses, calls him Captain America; probably because he’s cut as hell and looks like throwback Americana perfection) walks into his life at a political insiders party on the arm of a female senator from Maine. Steve slips Bucky his card—it has a phone number on it and a round star spangled shield—and Bucky can’t say no. It’s just a matter of time before his colleagues and the rest of Washington (no, the world) find out about this dalliance; and from there Bucky’s career will crash and burn. Bucky tells himself Steve is worth it, that protecting their secret is worth every night they spend together. “We should stop,” Steve tells him one night, and Bucky replies simply, “I’m not doing this without you.” When Steve asks him, “What’s this?" Bucky laughs and tells him, "I don’t know. I don’t know.”
