"metal hand going places it shouldn’t" life 2014
It starts out with a dare.
Apparently, knitting is therapeutic or something. Sam pushes a package over the table towards him, nods at it.
"You wanna give that a go?"
It’s different from the way he talks to Steve. Sam’s voice has an edge whenever he talks to Bucky: a challenge, maybe a threat. Two guys sizing each other up. Bucky likes it. Steve, these days, talks to him gently. Like he’ll break.
Or break worse than he already did.
The bag turns out to contain a ball of red wool, and two needles, size 8 according to the knobs on the end. Bucky examines them silently. He does most things silently, these days.
The wool might work as a garotte, his mind reflects. And the aluminium needles could make a good projectile.
"It’s therapy.” Sam says, catching the look in his eye. “They used to do it for vets back in the day, I think.”
"I know." Bucky’s voice, as always, croaks a little from long years of disuse. He doesn’t elaborate in response to Sam’s quirked eyebrow- the memories of James Barnes Sr are hazy at best, but they include wool and wooden needles, socks made in the weeks when he had to sit up and watch Winifred- watch mom- cough her life away.
Sam sits back. “So, you should give it a go.” He pauses. “I need a hat.”
Bucky looks at the wool, twirls one needle idly, like a knife. “Maybe.”
Watching Bucky knit, once he’s mastered the first few clumsy stitches, is a trip. Steve sometimes stands and stares, because someone with one bionic hand and no lessons working with wool and needles is truly a sight to behold. His mechanical fingers move in a blur, clicking along the needles so that the regular clack of aluminium has a staccato counter-rhythm. Sometimes- and this makes Steve wince- he’ll rotate his whole hand, anti-clockwise, to get at an odd angle or a difficult stitch.
(Sometimes, Bucky will take the thing, look at it, and let out a blistering string of mat that HYDRA sure as hell didn’t program in. This is apparently essential to the process, or so Natasha assures him)
Eventually, he’s made a wobbly, red, ribbed hat, something like a toque, that he gives wordlessly to Sam the next time they speak.
Sam takes it, turns it inside out to look at the wobbly way it’s been sewn up, then shrugs and puts it on.
Sam pushes another, larger pile of wool and set of needles towards him.
"Make me another one, then."
Wake up to find that my stupid self-indulgent knitting fic has over 200 notes and my follower count has spiked wtf, clearly you guys want knitting Bucky. So have a pattern (my first ever!) loosely modelled after my own personal sock recipe:
James Barnes’ Therapy Socks
size 10 dpns
worsted weight wool
lingering sense of disassociation from the real world
In some ways, the term “pansexual” came out of biphobia and a need to stipulate that one was not transphobic. If you take the binary view of “bisexual,” then a sexuality specific to an attraction to men and women could be seen as being noninclusive of transgender men and women. On the other hand, transgender men and women want to (and should) be seen as simply men and women, meaning that they would/should be included in that very binary; not including them tends to be much more phobic and noninclusive.
Then there is the thought that the binary view of bisexuality can be seen as phobic of anyone who identifies as genderqueer, or somewhere along the gender and sexuality spectrum, not identifying as male or female, man or woman. But, as I mentioned before, the true definition of “bisexual” is being attracted to those who are the same as me and those who are different from me, encompassing all genders and identities. The often-repeated argument that “bi means two” ignores a simple fact: “Same” and “different” are, indeed, two groups."
if long distance shooters aren’t ordered to stand down with “sniper no sniping” then what’s the point tbh
