When he peeks inside, Sylvie seems to be sleeping, her face is buried in one of his pillows, a blanket draped over her body. He quietly tiptoes in and leaves the aspirin bottle and water on the night stand where she’s sure to see it when she wakes up. He rummages around one of his drawers and manages to find a spare toothbrush, which he places next to the aspirin for her to use in the morning.
As he moves to make his way to the couch, he hears her speak.
“Your pillows smell nice. They smell like you - like wood and smoke and, and something else I can’t remember right now,” Sylvie slurs.
Matt grins broadly, crossing his arms while approaching her, “you’re really drunk, aren’t you?”
“Jello shots are delicious. You don’t taste the alcohol at all. You should try them,” she recommends, sending his a small, sleepy smile.
Matt sits on the floor and leans closer to her. He can’t help it. He’s having fun talking to a very inebriated Sylvie.
“I’ll take it under advisement.”
“I want a grilled cheese sandwich. Help me get up and make one, please?” Sylvie suddenly starts to sit up at the thought of getting herself her sandwich but she lies back down again a second later.
“Is there an earthquake? The room’s spinning. We need to duck under the bed, Matt.”
Her eyes grow comically wide, not unlike one of the cartoon characters Matt used to watch as a kid, at the thought of a natural disaster. She says the last sentence with such concern that Matt lets out a loud laugh.
“You’re cute when you laugh. You can see that dimple right here,” she motions to her cheek to demonstrate her point.
Matt sobers up immediately. Did he hear her right? She thought he was cute?

I haven’t read warrior cats since elementary school (tho I WAS a megafan at the time and read all the books, wrote and read fanfic, and roleplayed on fansites) but last night I binged brighter fires until 4 in the morning and screwed up my sleep schedule. You wrote a REALLY good fic and I love it a lot! However I do have a mini heart attack and laugh whenever the cats swear because that is a little kittycat saying curse words!!!
OH MY GOD THAT IS SUCH A HIGH COMPLIMENT! I'm so happy that something I wrote has in a way become a part of something you've loved!! And I'm so happy that you found something new to love as well!!! (Don't screw up your sleep schedule though ;) :') )
Also, HAHAHAHHA because yeah I've had a lot of readers say the swearing is very alarming at first. I think it's amusing too, but I was genuinely a bit surprised at first at just how much people noticed it! But eventually I realized that I've simultaneously too close and too far away from the situation. I am too close in that I have so ingrained these silly little kitties into my heart that their capacity for dramatics has ceased to pick up at all on my radar, and too far in that I have such a mild haughtiness towards Warriors' writing that I now view it through 6 or 12 layered and mirrored lenses of irony that I have sort of ceased to worry about the little things with regards to these books, if that makes sense. So to me, it seems perfectly natural for everyone to say fuck. (Side note, I also tend to just mentally translate imaginary curses from various fantasy and sci fi fiction just back to their real world equivalent, so that might have also desensitized me lol)
Also if this answer seems long or a bit manic, I can only apologize, as I wrote this at a time when I was fairly blazed. Sorry, good sir (gender neutral)
