don’t go telling me steve rogers and bucky barnes don’t get stalked by random history undergrads asking for exclusive interviews
like they’re completely 100% harmless
just sleep deprived and running completely on coffee and have done nothing but read large tomes on the history of whatever
and then holy crap actual soldiers straight from the 1940s with all that knowledge fresh in their minds who got to see straight-up national secrets first-hand
let’s go get all that untapped intelligence for our honors thesis
steve tries so hard to help but there are just so many so eventually bucky takes to being the bad guy and slams doors in people’s faces
but steve sometimes sees the hurt and despairation in the kid’s eyes and bucky we have to do something and steve never did know how to give up on a lost cause
so bucky sighs and says he’ll go along with whatever steve thinks is best
next thing you know steve and bucky are teaching a seminar at the local college on world war ii (and who cares if they both barely got through high school no one’s going to turn down having actual war heroes from wwii speaking on the subject) and the history community practically vibrates with enthusiasm
and steve and bucky are kind of worried at question time that everyone is going to ask really personal questions but only people who have graduated with or are currently working on a history degree are let in and the q&a session is mostly about small details they wanted a first-hand source for like the consistency of mud and its effect on average soldiers and how different caliber rifles helped or hindered people in practice
steve and bucky decide the history community is kind of weird but they like them anyway because for the most part they are surprisingly not nosy bastards unlike everyone else that is desperate for an interview
I AM DRAWING A MILLION SPARKLY HEARTS AROUND THIS POST. <33333
I am adopting this and posting it here even though it is not sad. Don’t worry. Tam and I can make it sad for you. We know why you’re here.
most graceful team in the league
It is my headcanon that there is a gun on the table in this scene because The Winter Soldier has been trained to arm any of his handlers who are not already armed while in his presence so that, if they so choose, they can put him down at any time.
Later, it takes Steve months to figure out why Bucky gives him a knife every time they’re in the same room.
