(out of character)
Pace. I try to clear my tags every day, but sometimes I'm quicker than that and sometimes slower. My schedule is irregular but I usually tag late in the evening.
Backtagging. This is fine, I'm happy to keep tagging.
Fourth-walling. Bucky knows he is in comic books: the original 1940s Captain America comics exist in the Marvel Universe as propaganda for the war effort. His secret identity is also his actual name, so. Canon-puncturing, i.e. telling him that he's fictional, is a hard no.
Brackets/Prose. I default to brackets but I have no strong preference, & will match yours if you have one.
Physical Affection. I'm OOCly comfortable with this, ICly it will depend on the source and context. Bucky is not exactly a warm and friendly type.
Violence. Come at me, bro. Bucky is from a superhero comic and violence is his life. Major injury and death is something I prefer to discuss beforehand, but feel free to PM me.
Psychic stuff. Bucky's mind has been thumbed through a time or two before, and he's had SHIELD install mental blocks to prevent that from happening. That said, a dedicated telepath could definitely break through his limited defenses, though he will not like it. If your character is a telepath let me know and I will try to include things for them to pick up on.
Seeking. Friends, allies, & wary acquaintances, rivals and enemies, sparring buddies— gen CR is my jam and my primary motivating factor.
Shipping Favs. Natasha, Clint, Sam.
Others. I don't have a hard NOTP for Bucky and am open to most things given proper development, including cross-canon.
Comics Familiarity. My primary influence is definitely Brubaker, but I've read pretty much everything Bucky's been in. Including World War Hulks.
MCU Familiarity. I've seen most but not all of the MCU movies but am only sorta-familiar with a lot of the adjacent material, like Agents of SHIELD.
Alternate Universes. I play from 6161 continuity but I really like cross-universe CR and exploring the differences between timelines. I don't always have my characters ICly recognize AU canonmates right-off, but feeling ~a connection~ nonetheless. I'm also more than happy to just go with the flow of a thread, if you want to do it another way!
1. I do what I want, Tom Brevoort.
⚠️ Offensive subjects: Bucky's canon involves brainwashing, violence, and a more than usual amount of Nazis. Older comics also include period-typical racism & sexism. Please let me know if there's something you don't want to be tagged with. I have no specific triggers.
