Pairing: Bucky x Healer!reader
Word Count: 1000
Warnings/Summary: Despite the title, this is mostly fluff. There are mentions of Tony’s death so that’s sad. Basically reader over-extends herself when healing during the endgame and Bucky gets all fussy and worried. It’s cute and sad, but happy. Idk. If you like it, let me know!
The endgame had been harder than
anyone expected. A lot of people were injured but luckily, they had YN to heal
them. She had been doing minor healings all throughout the battle when she ran
across her teammate at the same time as joining in the fight. Banner had needed
a lot of healing, especially after using the Infinity Gauntlet. Then there were
countless cuts, burns, twisted joints and other minor injuries that people
could fight through, but made it significantly more uncomfortable. That was her
job, to help them get through the battle.
A couple more serious injuries had
occurred to the Wakanda soldiers and a couple of agents she didn’t know the
names of, so after almost 100 minor healings, and 20 major ones she could feel
the energy slipping away from her. That is when the enemy started to turn to
dust and she leaned against some rubble, smiling faintly. They had won.
“YN,” She heard someone call out.
She turned around and smiled, “Hey
He took one look at her and rushed
to her side, “You’ve healed too much, you know you can’t do that.”
“Nice to see you too. It’s not like
the last time I saw you, you were the one turning to dust,” She patted him on
the shoulder, she tended to get a little loopy after exhausting her powers that

She looked up at him earnestly, “I
missed you,” She felt tears coming to her eyes, “I missed you a lot, you have
“How many people have you healed?”
He said concernedly as she teetered on her feet.
“Didn’t you miss me?” She brushed
her hand against his cheek and basically fell into his arms. She giggled, with
tears on her face.
He held her up and in a stern voice
said, “YN, how many people did you heal?”
She instantly looked guilty, “Lost
“More or less than 70?” He knew
that was her general limit.
She paused a second, still a little
loopy, and Bucky looked at her expectantly.
“More,” She looked up at him, tears
coming to her eyes again.
“You know you can’t do that,” He
She looked up at his face and
noticed all the cuts and bruises. He was holding a hand to his side where it
looked like he had been hurt, “Bucky, you’re hurt.”
She smiled faintly, “Here.”
“No, no, no–” He tried to protest
and move away from her but she was too quick.
She put her hand on his cheek and
closed her eyes and he instantly felt all of his injuries heal.
“YN, no, you can’t do that,” She
collapsed in his arms,“You know I will be fine.”
“I can’t stand to see you in pain,”
She whispered smiling, stroking his cheek with her fingers, “I missed you so
“You’ve never pushed yourself this
“I’ll be ok.”
Bucky stared tearing up, water
dropping onto YN’s face. He cradled her as she passed out. He didn’t understand
why she had done that, why she had used her last bit of energy to heal him, and
he didn’t know if she could come back from healing that many people in one day.
She went completely limp as he screamed out for help.
She woke up in a sunny hospital
room in an ugly green gown and looked around at her surroundings, slightly
dazed. Bucky was sitting in a chair next to her bed, he had fallen asleep in a
weird position, but apparently hadn’t decided to try to move. As she shifted in
her bed he started, blinking, and looked at her.
She tried to sit up but got dizzy
and lay back down, “How long have I been out?”
He had jumped up to be closer to
her, “Two days.”
“We won right, I’m not remembering
He smiled sadly, “Yeah we won…” He
He sighed, a couple of tears
falling down his face.
“Tony what, Buck?”
She stared at him in shock, “No, he
can’t be dead.”
“I’m so sorry,” He sniffed and
wiped the tears off his face.
It couldn’t be true. He was Tony
Stark, a constant, the one who took care of them all. It couldn’t be true, “How?”
Bucky scooted the chair closer to
the bed and sat down again, “He saved the day. He really did, but he used the
infinity stones, and you saw what that did to Banner, but you know, Stark was
human. He died saving all of us.”
She didn’t speak for a minute, “I
should have, I could have…maybe if I were there.”
“You couldn’t have done anything,
it would have killed you to heal him.”
“Just because you have healing
powers, it doesn’t mean you are responsible for everyone,” Bucky took her hand,
“Why do you carry all that weight?”
She burst into tears, not being
able to handle it all, “I…I just…” Was all she could get out. She tried to pull
away from Bucky, but he climbed into the bed next to her and held her close.
She wrapped her arms around him and held on as tightly as she could.
When her sobs finally subsided, she
started speaking again, “I’m terrified of losing people. When Thanos, when it
all happened, I couldn’t do anything. And you were gone, and half of everyone,
and I couldn’t do anything. I can’t fight, I’m not like you guys. Healing is
the only thing I know how to do, and it couldn’t do anything.”
He wrapped his arms more tightly
around her, “Oh hon, you’re so much more than just your powers, you’ve got to know
that, don’t you?”
She let out another sob, “I just…I…”
She took in a deep breath, “Bucky, I never got to tell you…”
“Tell me what?”
“I never got to tell you that I
loved you,” She felt a jolt run though her body and her face heat up, she
couldn’t take back those word now, but she didn’t care. Whatever happened.
He was silent for a minute before
he shifted back to look in her face, “Yeah?” He smiled.
“Yeah. Thought I might as well tell
you,” She shifted away from him, uncertain of what his full reaction would be.
He stared at her, “You look as
beautiful as the day I died.”
She felt her face growing warmer,
but smiled nonetheless, “It was a terrible day.”
“I am guiltily glad of the fact
that I did not have to live for five years without you,” He brushed some hair
behind her ear.
“Yeah?” She leaned into his touch.
“’Cause I am so in love with you
