thatdichotomything said: You know the 'If found return to __' shirt thing? Obv I thought of Steve and Bucky. I feel like pre-serum Steve would definitely wear the 'If found' shirt, and my first thought was that post WS recovery!Bucky would wear the 'If found return to __' shirt. And now I am feeling that post WS they'd both wear shirts which had 'If found return to __' on the front, and on the back 'I am __', partly to give Bucky the sense of purpose/memory but mostly bc that's how it is now. More balanced or something.
I did think of post-ws bucky wearing the ‘if found’ shirt but it made me so so sad because that means it still happens, where he wonders off and forgets little things, like, who is he, where is he, what year is this, whats his mission, and i couldnt handle it (here you go guys, all you people telling me how terrible i am for sharing my sad terrible headcanons, sometimes i keep them to myself!) and i liked the idea of bucky just rolling his eyes every time he loses steve, you are 200lbs, over 6 feet how do you keep sneaking off and its always with a split lip or a bloody nose goddamnit steve and this way the shirt is a gentle reminder, i am bucky, and he’d heaved a sigh because steve’s friends (theyre your friends too buck) think theyre so funny but it was nice to know that steve still needed him.
that was my thought process anyway :P
BUT i did not think we could have both, but maybe have I am bucky on the front and I am steve on the back of steves shirt, so if theyre standing next to each other (as they are want to do) it makes sense and that way bucky gets to see it every time he catches a glimpse of it :D?
That’s the thing because it would make sense at first, that Bucky may actually need to be returned to Steve. and it is sad and terrible. Like, what if Bucky is kind of confused at first about wearing the shirt, but he does it anyway because he knows Steve wants him to and at first he accepts that as his new misson; do what Steve wants. try and make Steve not look as sad when he looks at him (‘happy’ is still a distance away at this point). Then maybe Bucky has a bad night and convinces himself everyone (Steve. Steve is everyone) would be better off if he got himself lost anyway so he leaves the shirt on Steve’s bed and goes. (of course, after freaking out, Steve finds him again… or maybe Buck chooses to come back which would be nice…)
omg, though, that is lovely and perfect as well. bc STEVE. Steve sneaking off on missions and leaving Bucky sleeping in. Or they’re both on some mission and Steve goes off mission to save people, or just walking around the city and Steve goes down another street saying he’ll catch up in a minute, then goes into a burning building or something to save someone’s puppy.
I like both (especially the swapping to the front/back thing because :DDD). maybe Holiday gifts from Natasha because yep, hilarious.
I feel the need to make an amendment to that question meme thingy I posted a while ago.
I am most definitely single.
important ship question: who wears the “if found, please return to [name]” shirt and who wears the “i am [name]” shirt
