Bucky tried not to resent it. He really did.
He didn’t have anything to complain about it, and he knew it. The first few days, weeks, months had been hellish, he hadn’t known when it was, where he was, even who he was. He’d lost time, hours and days at a stretch, and the only thing that made sense was Steve. Steve, who could latch onto to an idea, onto a person, with the grip of a terrier and never let go.
Bucky had fought that grip at first. Mostly because it felt so terrifyingly familiar, and he hadn’t known how to handle it. Really, he still didn’t, but he knew he needed it. He needed Steve.
They’d brought him back here, to what he now realized was Sam’s house. Sam’s house outside of Washington DC. They’d had a discussion one time, when they thought that Bucky was asleep, about bringing him back to Brooklyn. Steve had vetoed it, and Bucky was glad. He hadn’t been ready for that; he might never be ready for that. He hated Washington, but he was okay with this. This little house in a pleasant neighborhood, quiet and still for whole parts of the day and night.
Bucky slept a lot. He would’ve thought he’d been done with that, but doing just about anything took too much effort. Memories and thought and touch and movement, it all too effort and he was so tired.
So it had taken him a while to notice that Sam and Steve were doing everything possible not to be alone together. Steve was a step behind or a step in front of Bucky all the time, even sleeping in the chair next to Bucky’s bed. Bucky had been needy at first, and his resentment of that need hadn’t made it go away. He’d needed Steve, he still did.
It was just that Steve needed Sam. Bucky wasn’t sure that Sam realized it, but he wasn’t sure how the man could be oblivious to the way that Steve watched him. If it was obvious to Bucky, well, then, Sam had no excuse. He liked them both.
But he’d never liked being a third wheel.

fleur delacour is so important i can’t even put it into words
badass girl whose “most precious” was her sister, who despite what anyone might think of her (cough molly cough ron cough hermione cough) looks past any aesthetic unpleasantries because she is completely and irrevocably in love with bill, who willingly risks her life for harry (the seven harrys, anyone???), who manages to create a spot of brightness in the middle of war (wedding!!!), who is feminine and badass at the same time, who opens her home to an entitled goblin and multiple refugees/runaways, who doesn’t sacrifice one bit of her integrity or character despite the looming threat of war
My boyfriend of over 2 years sent me a game over skype. He said he wants to try and make Pokemon games since I play them so much. I opened it up and was super excited.
It seemed really well done and was super ready to start on my adventure!
He left a lot of cute notes and tips around town.
He remembered my favorite Kanto starter.<3
I was surprised it ran pretty well. I went on my journey and leveled up my Pokemon!
He showed me support and encouragement through a ton of NPC dialogue.
Then as im ending the game I come across this.

The difference here being that Grant Ward CHOSE to do them.
Worst of all — this dude is one of the execs for Agents of SHIELD, and this sounds like a prelude to a fucking redemption arc. Now I fully expect the next season to be a shitfest. Just… how can you misinterpret your characters this badly?
#friends don’t let friends write redemption arcs for grant ward
bucky was literally a prisoner of war who was experimented on and tortured until he was unable to fight back against any orders and the minute someone showed up who started treating him like a person again, he started to revert back to his humanity and fight against his programming
ward is a grown-ass man who was treated as a person by the people on his team clearly presented with opportunities by them to make the right choices and refused to make the right choices every time
fuck grant ward
y’all are surprised??? this is how he publicly promotes himself.
