In the 50s and 60s, Steve and Bucky’s apartment was made into an exhibit, and you could walk around it as it was with the addition of a load of Howling Commandos memorabilia. The first thing the curator had to do, however, was to buy a bed that matched the one they already had. They couldn’t have the public thinking that Captain America and Bucky Barnes shared a single bed, absolutely not.
THIS IS THE BEST EVER.
The Winter Soldier looks blankly at the display and thinks: this is wrong. something about this is wrong. That night, he slips into the museum and lays down in one of the beds. It’s hard and unused. That makes…sense?, he thinks and lays on the other one. There are two dips in the mattress, one small and another a little larger. Yes, he thinks. This feels right. Even though it all still makes not a lick of sense.
