    Summary

    Drabble prompts from the tumble, including Bucky's Secret Chicken and A Weird Ladle.

    ("Drabble" is an overstatement; most of these are loose thoughts which midway may have evolved into drabbles.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Bucky would love his own Samson the Ladle so he orders one off Amazon before he’s even finished looking at two pictures of actual Samson the Ladle. The when he has his own ladle, when he holds it, it makes him think about beaning Steve on the head with the ladle. He doesn’t know why the samson ladle makes him think this, but he thinks about holding it by the neck and bopping Steve on the head with it. “You’re a bad influence,” he tells it. Then he stabs an entire loaf of bread onto its neck and puts it back in the bread bag, and hears Steve whisper “what the fuck” later when he gets two pieces and makes a sandwich with holes in it.

    Summary

    “I’m Captain Rogers,” Steve said, once the Winter Soldier had joined them and took off his motorcycle helmet, shaking his mane of hair free. “You must be the Winter Soldier.”

    “That’s what they call me,” the Winter Soldier replied. His mask took up three quarters of his face and his eyes were hidden behind a pair of goggles, but Steve could still hear the hostility in his voice.

    Steve pasted on a smile and stuck out a hand for him to shake. “Welcome to the Avengers.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    All soldiers were the same, really, from their straight backs to their aching feet - they all held their bodies careful and still, they all had the same little routines and superstitions, they all looked brittle in late afternoon light. The Winter Soldier was no different, with the fluorescent lights glancing off his arm like shrapnel. There was something desperately familiar about the way he held his shoulders under the weight of his weaponry.

    "I'm not going to argue with you. I was there, I know what God did. Besides," Steve added, "what about the burning bush?" and Bucky burst out laughing and said, "Who are you, Moses? You think you're Abraham, or-- I just, I can't even, the ego on you. You know, now I know there's no God, because if there was, you would burst into flame. God doesn't work like that: he doesn't make deals, and if he did, he wouldn't just make 'em with you. People are losing brothers, lovers, sons - millions are going to die in this goddamned war and you know what, Steve? They all prayed just as hard as you," and later, when Bucky died--

    When Bucky died

    When Bucky died, Steve remembered how he'd said that God doesn't work like that. And Bucky was right, of course: you couldn't bargain with God, there was no deal to be made. Man proposes, God disposes. God had given him Bucky, and God had taken him back. Steve understood now: if God had given him this body, this mission, it was for God's own unknowable purpose. Steve's only duty was to be humble, and to serve.

    She took more of Barnes’s weight as Steve raised his hand and took the shield—and there was an audible exhalation in the room, a palpable sense of relief among everyone but her and Steve and Barnes. Steve stared at the shield, looking numb – it was an albatross if there ever was one – and then she saw to her horror that Barnes had twisted his face toward her to hide it from Steve, because he was struggling to control himself: he was on the verge of tears.
