“I don’t have anything to say that makes this any easier either, Tony.” Bucky swallows down the sudden bout of nausea. “I don’t want to give her up. I don’t care if she was forced on me. She’s all I got. I don’t blame ya if you don’t want us. We don’t need anything from you.”
Tony takes Bucky’s hands in his. “No, I want her, too. I’m scared, Bucky. I don’t know if I can be a good dad to her. A good mate to you. I just — I don’t want to fail you or her. You’re my mate, Bucks, and she is as much your pup as she is mine. I will never turn you or her away. I want the both of you in my life, if I’m allowed to, that is.”

The Avengers had been a team for almost four years before Steve had found and rescued Bucky, and they had been living together since basically day one. They had worked, fought and lived together for four years. Bucky’s six months in the tower appeared almost insignificant in comparison, and he could see that in the way the team was around each other: the ease between them, the physical contact, the jokes, the bright smiles, the trust.
Somewhere along the line, the Avengers had become a family, and Bucky was not a part of it.
(For the prompts: "Everyone lives together happily in the Tower AU and Bucky is having trouble feeling like he belongs. Tony slowly wins him over" + "Magic of any sort")
