Everyone tells Bucky something different. About himself, about Steve. Some things are comforting, some confusing. Most are painful, in some way or another.
In his report Steve had described, in excruciating detail, everything that happened on the train raid. It’s all in the SHIELD files, now.
Bucky doesn’t remember it too well; a harsh and freezing blur, right until the torn-out wall of the train car blasted everything into a heart-stopping focus and he was hanging onto the rail, Steve’s outstretched hand so very close to his, and yet-
Then: Bucky falling, out of Steve’s reach, out of his own life.
What the heck, I wrote a fic! It’s a Stucky angstfest featuring Death of the Endless and now I’m burnt out and heartbroken. 💔
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell (Chapters 2/3)

It’s barely September but the Potomac is so much colder than he remembers it being. Then again, Bucky often remembers things quite differently from how they actually were; decades and seasons bleeding into each other at random.
Speaking of which, he doesn’t remember wading into the water in the first place, but he must have, since here he is, on the river bank, once again dripping wet and cold to his core.
He'd never seen anything like it. There was fog! There were lasers! There was another bar and another hot bartender! And there were bubbles coming from somewhere! Fucking bubbles! And the DJ in the corner wasn’t some shitty $200-dollar-a-night hack job that Stark had hired off Craig's List. No. Bucky recognized her because he followed her on fucking Instagram! Eliza Zan was a club DJ who toured all over the East Coast, and Bucky was legit star struck. Like, legit, legit. Too legit to quit, legit!
Chapter 10 of my HS Stucky AU “The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits” is now posted on Archive of Our Own (find it under Jessie Lucid). If you’re down for a 90s retro rave with cute boys acting like sexy idiots. check it out.
“The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits” re-release starts next Friday! Wooooo! To celebrate, I’m giving away prints of this illustration from the novel. Reblog this post, redraw this Steve & Bucky in your style (all skill levels welcome 😉), share your work on Tumblr, Twitter, or Insta & tag me (or DM me), & shoot me your address. ❤️ In a few weeks, I’ll start popping these cutie pies in the mail. 😉
A Stucky high school AU that’s equal parts comedy, romance, drama, and psychological thriller, “Misfits” Ch 1 will be posted on Ao3 Friday, July 25th (Jessie Lucid-lucidnancyboy).
I’m so emotional right now. 3 years, 500,000k, over 30 drawings, & “The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits” is finally finished. The official re-release/final chapter will be ready in a week or so (after a final read). 🥳Now, excuse me while I go cry & dance at the same time..
Decided to write a quick Stucky AU with Punk!singer Bucky Barnes & BoyBand!member Steve Rogers, based on a prompt over on Twitter. The fun part is I get to put all my knowledge from being in a band & being friends with musicians into it. Wooo!
Coming tomorrow! “Bowling Alley Boyfriend” by lucidnancyboy (on Ao3).
I love it when a plan comes together! When I designed the drawing for Chapter 26 of “The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits”, I wanted to mirror the image of Steve & Bucky from Chapter 3. After working on this story for over two years, I thought it would be a fitting way to show my journey as an artist and the transformation of the characters.
Chapter 3: “Steve & Bucky: The Synchronicity of Color”
Sneak Peek/WIP. I’m thrilled to announce that I’m illustrating the upcoming Stucky Fic “Higher Ground” by the marvelous @boopifer !!! One of the first Stucky drawings that I ever created was inspired by her story “Snake Eyes” (boopboop on Ao3), and it’s so cool that I have the honor of working with her almost 3 years later!
Coming Soon! Here’s a little hint about a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ I’m cooking up with the fab Stucky artist, @drjezdzanyart. What does a writer do after spending the entire summer putting their favorite characters through hell? Well, in my case, they come up with a story where Steve wears a Public Enemy t-shirt for a conference call with Tony, and Bucky laughs so hard that he accidentally spits iced tea all over the back of Tony’s ‘fashionable’ vest. 😂
Here’s a poorly made time-lapse (don’t judge😂) of me working on the second drawing for Ch 26 of ‘Misfits’. This is about an hour of work using mostly a 3H Derwent Drawing Pencil & a Ticonderoga Black. The drawing will be posted Saturday to give people a chance to read the update, but if you can’t wait, it is posted at the end of the chapter on Ao3 (‘The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits’ by Lucidnancyboy).
An accidentally sideways time lapse (oops) of me working on Bucky Barnes’ face in my new drawing for Chapter 24 of “The King of the Jocks: The King of the Misfits” (Lucidnancyboy on Ao3). He’s going to be floating in water, which I’m planning to do in color.
Presenting Chapter 2 of “Invisible Ink”, a new Stucky collaboration inspired by @inflomora-art for the 2018 @capreversebb A new chapter will be posted every day through May 22nd. Enjoy!
Chapter 2: Sweetheart
Life after Thanos. Needless to say, it was a big change for Bucky. He’d left his Wakandan safety net to dive headfirst into a real, honest to goodness, romantic relationship with Steve, and, surprise, surprise, life in New York was a hell of a lot more complicated than hanging out with Shuri by the lake and chillin’ with his goats.
To symbolize the excessive gooeyness of their new and wondrous love affair, Bucky decided to get a tiny heart tattooed on his hand as a surprise for Steve. So far so good. But then life’s inevitable road bumps had come into play: a gang of unruly teenagers making life harder (but also better), and Steve spending more and more time away from home.
The question was, could the power of one little tattoo help them figure out domestic bliss? God, Bucky hoped so…
I’m thrilled to announce that I have a brand new Post IW Stucky fic coming very soon for this year’s @capreversebb ! The story is inspired by artwork from the amazing @inflomora-art and will be posted May 19th-22nd.
Here’s a snippet of Bucky hanging out with Peter and Ned...
Ned kept digging his own hole. “And your hair...it’s always flying around like a majestic lion with his own personal wind machine. Sometimes, when I see you on TV, I hear the song from ‘The Lion King’.”
“Ned…” Parker looked like was gonna cry...
“Then, after the zebras, giraffes, warthogs, and other lions gather beneath the cliff, you flip your mane and sing about the circle of life with your perfectly smudged eyeliner...”
That was it; the line in the sand.
“I don’t wear eyeliner!” Bucky snapped.
“Really?” Ned gasped. “Your eyes look like that, naturally?”
ALMOST DONE! I literally can’t see right now. 4 hours straight working on fabric folds, & I’d say for the last hour my eyes have been fuzzy. Lol. Tomorrow’s the day!!!!! New drawing & Chapter 23 of “King of the Jocks: King of the Misfits”. (Lucidnancyboy on Ao3)
Work in Progress/Process: This Frankenstucky reference was REALLY tricky, especially since I threw Clint into the mix. I just finished the first layer of value, using only a 5H pencil (about 4 hours). Next, I’ll switch to a 2H. I wanna be able to shade faster so I can post the new chapter! Lol. Drawing for Chapter 23 of “King of the Jocks: King of the Misfits” (Lucidnancyboy on Ao3) by Jessie Lucid.
Work in Progress- “Clint, Steve, & Bucky: Gone”. Chapter 23 illustration for “King of the Jocks: King of the Misfits” which will be posted on Ao3 (Lucidnancyboy) as soon as I finish this. Why I make myself draw 2 Zillion fabric folds is beyond all logic. Lol
Rules: list all the projects you want to work on this year, then tag 10 people to do the same.
After 1 1/2 years of hard work, it's my goal to finish my Stucky HS AU "King of the Jocks: King of the Misfits" this year. Summer is my loose target. Fingers crossed everybody!
I've signed up as both an artist & an author for the @capreversebb and have my wheels turning for Episode Three of "The Self-Sacrificial Steve & Bucky Show", my collab series with the amazing @drjezdzany
I'm going to the Con in Philadelphia to meet Sebastian Stan, so I'm planning on doing an intricate BuckyCap drawing to give him (and make a print so I can have him sign one too!)
Beyond that, I have some top secret plans that I'm really excited about. 😉
What are you planning @drjezdzany @brendaonao3 @chiyume @stephrc79 @tern-tern-tern @artgroves @steves--winter--boobear @deandraws @batwynn @chicklette
