    Summary

    Bucky shakes an errant lock of hair back from his face, tilting his jaw up. Steve’s eyes track the shift of the kaftan, the tantalizing glimpse of Bucky’s collarbones.

    “Where do you find this stuff?” Steve asks, his hand smoothing up Bucky’s metal arm, over the silken sleeve and down Bucky’s back, coming to rest on the small of his back. “You never buy any when we’re in town.”

    Bucky shoots an unimpressed look at Steve. “Why buy it with you, when I can make it a surprise, instead?” He leans in for a short, hard kiss before slipping out of Steve’s loose hold, turns towards the bedroom and looks over his shoulder. Steve’s scanning him with blatant interest, making him smile. “You know where to find me, if you want a distraction.”

    Summary

    After that he just looks at himself for a long time, taking in the rich blue of the dressing gown, the silk dark enough to cover him well but sheer enough to hint at what’s underneath. The shape of the kaftan fades the breadth of his shoulders, and the sash tied around his waist accentuates the narrowness of it; creates an illusion of Bucky being slenderer, smaller; tiny, delicate. With the new haircut and the faint flush high on his cheekbones, he looks almost unrecognizable: clearly more pretty than handsome; feminine, like one of those housewives in the 1950s media, waiting for her man to come home.

    Summary

    “Your son was said to be as beautiful as Brooklyn’s sweet apple blossoms,” Barnes said, and his lips lifted in another smile, then his eyes moved and Steve was startled by the intensity of his gaze.

     

    Barnes gave pause, long enough that Steve’s heartbeat picked up again. Then he spoke again.

     

    “But no blossom could compare,” he said. “Not even the most perfect of untouched flowers.”

     

    Steve felt his cheeks heat up; he blushed right to the roots of his hair, pulled back from his face by Wanda’s best braids. Barnes’s gaze somehow intensified even more as his gaze just shifted enough that Steve was sure he saw him blush that far. Barnes’s lip lifted at one corner by a hair.

     

    “I’ve never been gladder to have my expectations so far exceeded,” he concluded.

    Summary

    List of Stuff Bucky Shall Never Do:

    1. Give up spider solitaire
    2. Tweet TMI shit to celebrities
    3. Get a fucking raise, it seems
    4. Sleep with a coworker

    He HAS tweeted TMI shit about celebrities, but he also has some common sense and knows that some people actually read their replies, so he a) posts only on his private account and b) never tags. Bucky's pretty sure that he's not the only person to have drunk tweeted about Captain America's daddy level, but at least he doesn't fucking call Steve Rogers 'daddy' to his face.

    Until he kind of does, and breaks his fourth rule in the process.
