ook, i saw you wanted requests, so. I have two headcanons?? like, a reader who's very open about how much she loves bucky and going all in with him, like tons of pet names, being clingy as fuck and bucky just LOVING the shit out of her and out of that part of their relationship. and one day, because of tiktok, reader going "oh, goodmorning james" and he's just HAVING THE BIGGEST BREAKDOWN. in his mind going insane like "fuck, what did i do??????" and reader just doing that for the whole day, and bucky just breaking and asking why the fuck is she/they calling him James, he's baby, he's my love, he's hubby. who the fuck is james EHDBCJVNRJF.
who the hell is james? — b. barnes
warning(s): a 106 yeard old baby man.
note: i just realized what i did with the title. for the other requests, i swear i’ll do it soon. stuff has just been hectic for me lately.
you love bucky
that’s no question
who wouldnt lmao
he’s bucky occasionally
he’s every pet name out there
you never called him james
you would always cling on to him when you have the time
okay let’s be honest, even if you don’t have the time you always force there’s time just to be with him
and even though bucky isn’t as showy as you are
he still never failed to show you how much he loves you
he’d silently show it
bring you flowers bcs he remembered you
bring you this book bcs he knows you’ve been wanting to read it
take u out on a date bcs he knows you need something to take your stress away
okay so we all know how basically tiktok has consumed most of us
so you saw this thing with girlfriends pranking their boyfriends by calling them by their first name
so you wanted to do that with bucky for months
but u keep forgetting bcs u whipped for your boyfie
who wouldn’t be
then one morning, bucky walks in the kitchen with you working on something on your laptop as you waited for your toast
“morning, doll.” bucky greets with a smile as he walks straight to the fridge
“morning, james.” you said
and you thought, finaly ????
bucky stopped on his tracks, walking to you
“doll?” bucky says and you look at him
he awkwardly chuckles, “what’s up?”
“nothing..?” you trailed off, smiling at him awkwardly as you go back to your work
“so, um, doll,” bucky says, trying to make a conversation so he would know if he heard you right. “sam might call later about another mission. so i might go and return the next day.”
“alright,” you said as you kept typing. “good luck, james. and take care.”
bucky taps his fingers against the counter as he looks at you but you didn’t spare him a glance
poor baby being pranked :(
“coffee’s there, james.” you said, pointing at the other side and bucky just nods, fiddling with his fingers
he walks over to where you pointed, going over what happened yesterday
did he say something?
did he act stupidly?
what did he do?
w h a t
“doll?” bucky calls and you turn to him
you’re supposed to say “yes, my love?”
“are we okay?” bucky asks
you nod. “yeah, why?”
“n-no reason.” bucky says with a forced smile
you nod, turning back to your laptop
maybe you’re just stressed?
“i’m gonna go to the bedroom.” bucky says and you nod, smiling at him
bucky starts walking until you called him again
“oh, james?” you call and bucky turns around to look at you. “tell me when you need me to drive you.”
“yeah.” bucky breathes out and ruches up to your shared bedroom
he immediately calls sam because baby !! doesn’t !! know !1 what !! to !! do !!
“sam sam sam sam samuel”
“i think y/n’s mad at me.”
“she’s calling me james! have you ever heard her call me james? no! bucky sometimes but james? n e v e r”
please stop pranking this old man
then there’s a silence
until sam starts laughing “....what?”
“samuel! stop laughing.”
“man, your girlfriend’s got you wrapped up around her fingers, huh?”
“what do you mean?”
“it’s a prank. it’s happening everywhere. where she calls you by your first name.”
sam laughs again. “i’ll see you tonight, buck.”
bucky puts the phone down, going back to you to see you still didn’t move an inch
“doll >:(” bucky says
“no! i’m love! i’m your love! i’m baby, bubs, babi, mine, honey, sweetie, any pet names but james!!! >:(”
you laugh loudly, opening your arms turning towards him as he walks to you, gladly embracing you
“good morning, my love!” you said with a chirpy voice and bucky hums in approval
“that’s more like it.”
in conclusion, he is no longer the winter soldier.
he is james baby barnes

Masterlist - Series Masterlist - Bygone
You know that feeling when you finally have your life at least somewhat together, but then the universe comes out of nowhere and reminds you that you have control over absolutely nothing? Yeah, that’s pretty much what was running through Bucky’s brain as he stood outside of your room, peering in through the glass doors as Peter sat at your bedside while you slept.
In all honesty, Bucky shouldn’t have been surprised. Good things didn’t tend to happen to him, and you were the best thing. So, of course once he had finally gotten you, once the two of you had finally gotten your shit together, he had to lose you just as quickly.
The entire compound had gone quiet since you and Steve got back. Everyone was busying themselves with every possible thing they could do to try and figure out what had happened to you. Why you were so erratic, and why you couldn’t remember him.
Everyone was saying that it was probably just a residual effect of whatever had been done, that you’d be back to normal as soon as you came to. But Bucky couldn’t shake the feeling that there was far more hiding beneath the surface.
Everyone else had hope, they were keeping the faith, and trying to convince him that you’d be absolutely fine. Nothing that this group couldn’t fix. But nothing regarding the regaining of memories had ever been a quick fix, at least not in Bucky’s experience. Now the taking away of memories was a completely different story. Those could be gone in the blink of an eye, he knew that all too well.
