    Bookmark Notes:

    oh me? i love to cry! i love to spend about three days working my way through both the first fic and the extras and also spend those three days crying numerous times on numerous trains, obviously totally coincidentally. definitely not because all of this both ripped my heart out and gently stuck it back into my chest and patted it consolingly. over and over ("Snip snap snip snap snip snap! You have no idea the physical toll that three vasectomies have on a person!" but applied to emotions).

    anyway enough about my leaking tear ducts.

    i dearly love this steve and this bucky and the honesty about steve rogers' shall we say difficult personality, and about how completely uncomfortable and up-and-down and complicated transitioning from this arrangement even into friendship let alone romance would be. i am easily frustrated by problems in fiction being caused by people failing to communicate but here i'm like, yeah, of course they're failing to communicate; this is an absurd situation and they both have ten million issues, so the miscommunication is still stressful but in a totally earned-feeling way, worth-it way.

    and i love that despite the fact that steve is a pretty unreliable narrator on the topic of bucky, bucky's interiority is still very...findable? within reach. not transparent but not opaque if you are not steve and therefore not 100% in his head even if his perspective is very solid and does keep you rooted in his head. you know? you know. but bucky is closed off enough that getting the full story in some of the extras with his pov was like stepping into the sunlight.

    also one of the best jobs i've ever seen of fully fleshing out characters' lives with the presence of other people around them, developing their individual relationships with other loved ones outside of the main pairing (and also with not-loved ones, having there be a huge diversity of different connections they have to other people and generally allowing them to have led full lives).

    in short: SO adorable and also SO distressing and fully realized and realistic and my heart hurts in basically every way possible, thanks.
