Warning: This post will contain massive amounts of fangirl twiddle. Read at your own peril.
Romanian-American actor Sebastian Stan is an adorable cupcake known for playing the always-innocent and deeply troubled Bucky Barnes in the MCU. His official codename is The Winter Soldier, though he has many others popularised by his self-trained army of Tumblr Fangirls & guys. In celebration of his existence, here's a post dedicated to a portion of the amazing and adorable fan-art created by immensely talented artists, of his MCU character and BFF Steve Rogers. (You may know him as Captain America!)
Special thanks for the above edit go to the lovely and ever-so-helpful Jazmin Oscoy, who created the above image specially for this piece! Be sure to check out her Twitter & fan Instagram account for more fun edits!

1. Baby Steve & Bucky
Baby Steve & Bucky comes courtesy of DrChopper7 on Deviant Art. This piece comes complete with a little bear, masks and kisses in case Bucky gets bad HYDRA dreams. This definitely has to be the most adorable!
2. I'm The One Who Gripped You Tight And Raised You From Perdition
Sorry, wrong fandom!
This stunning piece of Steve pulling Bucky out of the water comes courtesy of MaxKennedy24 on Tumblr! You'll find a few other Stucky pieces on their blog, as well as some stunning Preacher pieces!
3. Perdition, you say? CROSSOVER!!
The insanely talented Cinetrix on DeviantArt is a self-proclaimed photo-manipulator and computer graphics programmer! Put the two together and not only do you get wonderful crossovers like Castiel healing a forlorn looking Bucky, but you get insanely realistic portraits of all your fave stars! Be sure to check out her DeviantArt page!
4. Give Steve Rogers a Boyfriend!!
Give Steve Rogers anything that isn't Sharon flipping Carter!
You all remember the hype train that was "Give Steve Rogers a Boyfriend", right? Well, this beautiful piece is that train personified. Created by the self-taught and insanely talented The Physicist on DeviantArt, this work of art is one of many of their realistic and beautiful pieces. Others include an armoured Steve Rogers with vengeance on his mind and a T-Rex by his side. You've gotta see it to believe it, folks!
5. Remember Me, Bucky
This dark and beautiful piece was created by Develv on DeviantArt - an artist whose wonderfully detailed work also includes a baby Loki spending quality time with daddy Laufey. Check out their page if it's the last thing you do today!

8. James And The Giant Plum
The next piece is actually a mini-series centering around what I imagine are everyday problems for little Steve & Bucky. Created by Kuro-Lee-Nest on Tumblr, this one's a sure contender for the most adorable! Scroll down for the rest of the story!
"I'm permanent, now I won't go. I just want to be your shadow."
The perfectly sculpted angular panes of Steve and Bucky's faces have been created by illustrator Damsel-In-Distrust on DeviantArt. Her wonderfully quirky pieces are full of colour and personality, and she also designs her own characters! Be sure to check out her page, too!

11. Hey Bucky, How'd You Like Your Flower Crown?
Last not but least, we're ending on a positive note, with flower crowns for everyone! This adorable image comes courtesy of Caycowa on DeviantArt, where a slightly disgruntled Bucky seems less than impressed with Steve's gift.
