🌿📺 and because I'm sappy as can be: 💞
From this ask meme 🍃  - what’s one thing that you regret never saying?
John’s lips make a tight, white line. His shoulders go stiff with tension and there’s a pallor that seems to ghost across his skin, paling even his light freckles, as he realises the one and only answer he could possibly have to that question.
“Haha.” There’s a bit of an awkward laugh. “Gee, I don’t know...” Because how could he tell anyone that his biggest regret, when their Mother had been trapped in that snowdrift, freezing, was that he’d been too young to realise what it meant. What her curling around the two of them trapped with her, pressing increasingly languid kisses to their heads, giving her boys her body heat, sheltering them from the snow and promising that Daddy would dig them all out soon, that they’d be ok, would mean for her.
His biggest regret is, easily, never getting to say goodbye.
📺  - describe a picture you’ve had in your head and wanted to take.
John’s got a world-leading stellar telescope aboard Thunderbird Five - one that takes the most incredible high resolution photos of outer space, and the astronaut is itching to get back up there to get some shots. He’s got, in his minds eye, the exact pattern of stellar phenomena he wants to photograph. The blotchy pattern of geomagnetic storms currently active around the sun’s corona. The erupting White Dwarf that NASA’s been raving about for the last 24 hours. The Tracy Quasar, haloed in the gold of her sun, bending, folding, around the black hole that sits dangerously at it’s edge.
💞  - what does love feel like to you?
If John’s honest with himself love feels like the safe circle of his Mother’s arms, tucked up small and close with scraped knees and a balanced book. Love feels like the width of his Father’s hand on a slim shoulder, the squeeze of a mission well done, the pride in his eyes, the worry when he’s sent off to orbit. Love is the wrinkles that have started to appear in the corners of Scott’s eyes and in the laughter lines around his mouth, in his dimples and the warmth of his gaze when he’s watching his little brothers. It’s the crushing pressure of a Virgil hug, the flecks on paint on the fingers checking that his vitals are good when he’s just landed. It’s a well-meaning karate chop from Kayo, a get up and do it again but better and a hot mug of something spiked with alcohol out on the porch when the nights are chilly, and he’s out there stargazing. Love from Gordon feels a lot like getting shoved in the pool. Which should probably speak for it’self. But it’s also diving together, bubbles and rebreathers and waving. It’s winning the squid from the claw machine for him. It’s the contrast of the sun and stars. For Alan, it’s little fingers and the way the duckling-down blond fluff on top of his head sticks up in Zero G. It’s late night pillow forts constructed of blankets with a textbook open on John’s knees and little Allie hanging on to every word.
It’s Grandma’s baking.
Love is family, and for John, there’s nothing in the whole world (or, if he’s really honest, off it) that’s more important.

From this ask meme
🌿  - what place do you wish you were right now? why?
The instinctual answer, of course, is in orbit, alone, as far away from this noisy rabble of brothers as possible, but... if John’s actually honest with himself, he’s not quite ready to go back up to ‘the office’ just yet.
Alan’s got his legs crossed on the sofa beside him, one sneaker shoved neatly into the negative space of John’s knee and a narrow shoulder pressed against his big brother’s. There’s a holo-tablet open on his lap while he flicks through the projections that make up his homework and the kid looks up at him with those wide blue eyes of his like he’s got the answers to everything.
John’s hair is still wet from his swim with Gordon - NASA pools not being all that different to Olympic ones - and though his form will never be as good, having the height advantage does mean he can almost keep up. The goldfish himself is sprawled opposite, headphones on with a towel shoved under him by a big brother to stop him ruining the sofa plush.
Virgil sticks his head up the stairs to count the number of living room occupants who might be hungry, the smell of something delicious wafting up from the kitchen downstairs and it lures a sweaty, grinning Scott and Kayo in from the porch where they’d been practice sparring. Scott’s got what might bloom into a good bruise blooming on his cheek, but he seems, if anything, thrilled about it. That’s one way to teach him to duck in time.
Thinking on the question though, looking around him, John is, he thinks, pretty happy exactly where he is right now.
Scott ruffles Gordon’s hair, provoking a miniature battle and Alan hides his sniggering in John’s shoulder, and Virgil’s yelling at them all to get their asses downstairs before he eats it all himself.
Yeah. John’s pretty convinced that he can, uh, tolerate this just a little bit longer.

Sometimes your family isn’t a mom and a dad, sometimes your family is a scrappy kid with a rocket sled, a genius with giant blue glasses and a nervous stutter, the ex-RAF pie eating champion of 2057, a loyal robot spider-dog with whisk attachments, a goldfish disguised as a human, an old guy in a leather jacket with a life of crime, a blond private detective who could kick your ass my ass and everyone on the planet’s ass, a ginger noodle stuffed in a spacesuit and his AI daughter, a piano-playing artistic engineer with a plaid obsession, a metal Angel Coulby with a years worth of ponytail, an old lady in purple who will murder you if you look at her boys wrong, and your Dad whose been in space eight years who you absolutely thought was dead

John constantly listening in to everything they’re doing and then suddenly appearing from nowhere, mid-conversation, with no warning to help out is my FAVOURITE thing
