SCREAMING

Hello I am the OP of this prompt and you've made my night. I'm so thrilled this is getting a fill, and that it's so good!!

THINGS I LOVE:

- How sweet and hot and familiar their dynamic is in the first section, and in the sex the lovely balance between being comfortable with each other and careful of triggers; I like how that creates the feeling that they've really accepted the roadblocks in their sex life, and it's lovely.

- AND THEN BY CONTRAST how awkward this early attempt is! Again your character work is phenomenal, with Steve as determined and wanting to make it better and Bucky as surly, prickly, and aggressive, which is my personal favorite way for his hurt to manifest. Bucky is so clearly furious at being (what he feels is) obligated to let Steve fuck him, but is still resigned to it, which brings me to:

- Bucky telling Steve that he's going to have to "push him down" and use him, like wow; even though he feels safe enough to attempt sex, he has a hard time envisioning penetration as genuinely consensual. He's so unhappy about everything in this situation and he still pushes to go forward. You do a really great job of depicting how fucked up he is about this.

- Always: STEVE.

- ALSO Bucky describing himself as a broken toy. Stop it, stop this

In short, this is amazing so far and I am happy.

Oh man, I am SO HAPPY that you like this! Especially since right after I posted it I re-read the prompt and was really worried that this Bucky might be way angrier than you wanted. I'm equally happy you liked Steve because he was really tough for me, I spent so much time questioning all my life choices for making him the POV. :P One of the things I find most interesting about post-WS Bucky is the idea of him being mostly recovered, mostly functional, but still having these really deeply-held views of how things work that are completely fucked up. In this case, he really has next to no conception of sex as anything other than a power play. At least not for him, not any more. And he doesn't want to do that to Steve, so it follows that he will let Steve will do it to him. Originally in that little speech at the end he told Steve that sex was filthy and all about who uses who, and don't Steve try to argue about that, Bucky's had more sex than him.

No need to worry, you managed to land right on my favorite interpretation of Bucky! You also pulled off Steve masterfully, so the effort paid off.

One of the things I find most interesting about post-WS Bucky is the idea of him being mostly recovered, mostly functional, but still having these really deeply-held views of how things work that are completely fucked up.

YES, this is my JAM. A Bucky who is functional but damaged, in his beliefs or symptoms he can't overcome or both, just gets to me. That kind of characterization can provide a lot of additional opportunities for the wrenching of hearts, either because Bucky is aware that he's fucked up and struggles with himself, or as a way of highlighting the long-term damage Hydra dealt; i.e., even mostly recovered, this still lingers.

"Bucky's had more sex than him" that's great, that's a good way of conceptualizing rape, healthy. I love Bucky generalizing lessons learned from rape to sex as a whole.
