Service Dog AU - Inspired by (x)
It was Sam’s idea.
Bucky had been holed up in Avengers Tower for a month now, and although his memories were slowly coming back, he was still distant and closed off around everyone bar Steve. There were nights he would scream himself hoarse, and the next day the rest of the team would pretend not to notice the dark circles underneath the soldier’s eyes.
He almost seriously injured Natasha after she went into the kitchen one night to get a drink, not expecting Bucky in there too. It wasn’t until she spoke that he noticed her presence - immediately on high alert and wielding the nearest knife. He would have attacked had he not realised who she was a split second before he buried the blade into the chest of what he had thought was someone coming to kill him.
Sam suggested the idea of a service dog to Steve, and it didn’t take long before he agreed (Stark however, took a little more convincing). They searched around the best available facilities - only the finest for Bucky - before settling on a female Golden Retriever.
At first, Bucky was stubborn. He didn’t need the help, therefore he didn’t need the dog. But Steve was just as stubborn; he refused to get rid of her, and so she stayed. Eventually, he would catch glimpses of Bucky petting the dog when he thought no one was paying attention - the man would immediately become less tense when she was around, and he was more likely to smile one of his rare smiles.
It took less than a month before they were inseparable. Bucky still pretended that looking after her was a chore, but anyone with eyes could see through the ruse. Steve asked him one day whether he’d thought of a name yet - he hadn’t been expecting the cheeky grin that was so reminiscent of the old Bucky to cross his friend’s face.
"Thought I’d name her Peggy. Then I can tease you about how I stole your girl… You’re too slow, old man."
Even though Bucky was joking, Steve knew him well enough to realise that he was paying tribute to another person from their past - the idea that he’d thought of Peggy at all gave him hope for the future.
why he lick me
THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.
IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”
wow they really did adapt frozen well
What is this?!?!?

OMGGGGGG!!! Cutie!! I’m gonna keep you.
One of the reasons I love deciduous forests. There’s magic in these places.
The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.
She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”
The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “
For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”
"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."
I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.
