Boost and Sinker start a side business called "I'm Sexy and I Mow It", cutting people's lawns around Coruscant in the summer. They quickly become the Chip and Dale performers of the landscaping world.

Fox and Wolffe talking about war
I spent a lot of time working on this one, hope you will like it! I wanted to explore their relationship during early stage of the war. Where Wolffe already lost so much and Fox is starting to discover that he fights a different kind of war. A war he was not prepared to fight but in this moment he knows that Wolffe needs a brother, support, so he doesn鈥檛 share his thoughts. Beside, I always headcanon Fox as a stubborn idiot who doesn鈥檛 like to share his emotions but rather hide them.

Hi, I just found your page and your art is great! I also saw you were taking requests, so I wanted to know if you could make one of the Wolffe Pack with Buir Plo? Maybe them all in a group hug or cuddle pile? I just love my 104th boys with their dad馃グ
Tumblr media
Aaah, thank you for the kind words and the request! 馃А
You have infected me with softness for the Wolfpack and I've been very negligent not drawing them even once so far, so here's them having a nice nap. They deserve it.

Haka! This time around is the Wolfpack--had fun on this one. I think some clone squads would teach their generals as well. Usually Wolffe leads, but he has been teaching Plo also. Shoutout to @shiniest-captain for partly inspiring this!
also I know Plo is only supposed to have 4 fingers don鈥檛 @ me

screaming thinking abt the clones going to a grocery store
warnings: mention of alcohol
Hardcase starts by grabbing a shopping cart, then runs for momentum and lifts his feet off the ground, barrelling his way down aisles and almost crashing into Rex. His captain is not pleased.
Kix immediately makes his way to the ice cream section. He takes many tubs into his arms, thinks about the cost, and opts for eight tubs of ice cream instead of ten. "We'll ration them."
Jesse accidentally takes someone else's trolley, thinking it was Rex's. He doesn't realise until the person politely asks for it back. Jesse thinks about digging himself into a hole and never coming back out again, and to make matters worse, Tup saw everything.
Whenever they need to put an item back, Dogma's the one to find which aisle and which exact section it came from. Otherwise, he loiters around the snacks section. He can't wait to get his hands on every sugary treat they have there.
Tup has a basket of his own. He fills it with items ranging from fluffy slippers, to a caf machine, to face creams, to 'wonky' fruits because they're cheaper. The slippers are for Fives because he ALWAYS complains about his feet being cold. He got the face creams because his skincare routine is practically non-existent, and Kix nags him every time he picks at his acne. The fruits and caf machine are for the barracks. He forgets to buy caf pods for the caf machine.
Fives swapped his armour with Echo. He spends most of the trip impersonating his brother and doing things to embarrass him. This includes lying on the floor facedown. Somehow Fives manages to knock over a pile of boxes in his attempt to prank Echo, and ends up embarrassing himself. He's steady on the battlefield, but outside it is a very different story.
On the other side of the store, Echo has long forgotten to impersonate Fives. He has more important things to do, like get the caf pods that Tup forgot, and milk, and sugar, and deodorant, and cheese- and before he knows it, the trolley Hardcase commandeered is full.
Rex is trying to have a good time. Key word: trying. He's already lost the shopping list Echo made (that's what he gets for not using a datapad). Hardcase nearly trampled him with a shopping cart earlier, and attempts on his life, accidental or not, tend to sour his mood. To make matters worse, Fives - and he knows it's Fives - is pretending to be his batchmate and inconveniencing customers in the process. Jesse nearly stole someone's cart. Kix has gone missing. Dogma's worked himself into a panic trying to return items they don't need, and Tup's trying to convince him to let him buy the caf machine. Rex pinches the bridge of his nose and contacts Cody.
Cody shows up with a datapad and trolley, Waxer and Boil in tow. He's in ori'vod mode. He has a shopping list, credits and a budget.
Waxer is busy piling items into Cody鈥檚 trolley. He ends up bumping into Echo. They look over their items and realise now they have two of everything. At least Echo remembered the shopping list, Waxer thinks.
Boil鈥檚 headed right for the alcohol. He has no ID on him save for the code on his wrist, but that鈥檚 not going to stop him from trying. Surely he passes for older than 18, right? Right?
Plo Koon hears from Obi-Wan that members of the 212th are at a grocery store. He thinks the Wolfpack could use a shopping trip, supplying each of them with 100 credits each. No one asks where he got the credits from.
Wolffe takes a basket and makes it clear that nothing is going in it unless it鈥檚 cleared with him and Plo Koon. He also has a budget. To his utter dismay, C3PO is also in the grocery store to get supplies for Padm茅. Wolffe pretends not to see the droid, but C3PO spots him before he can escape. He rolls his eyes, yet makes no verbal complaints. It鈥檚 only a matter of time before C3PO has to leave. He can do this.
Boost takes a leaf out of Hardcase鈥檚 book and takes a trolley for the sole purpose of using it to zoom around the speeder parking area. Sinker films the whole thing, then climbs into the trolley. Boost pushes him around, and they forget about actually buying anything.
Rex manages to pay for their items without incident. His headache is slowly going away, and they managed to find Kix outside with a bag full of ice cream tubs. Cody gives him a look that鈥檚 half 鈥榶ou really called me out here for this?鈥 and half 鈥榳ell done for getting it done鈥.
Wolffe finally escapes C3PO鈥檚 clutches and gets his items paid for, including a mug that has聽鈥楪alaxy鈥檚 No.1 Dad鈥 on it. Come to think of it, he can鈥檛 recall seeing Plo Koon drink from a mug, but it鈥檚 the thought that counts.
Boil emerges from the store with alcohol in hand. Waxer loses his mind over it.
Plo Koon loves his mug.
Obi-Wan makes a mental note to join his men the next time they go shopping. It might, dare he say, be fun.
Anakin and Ahsoka definitely plan on joining them. Rex has another headache just thinking about it. Still, the boys enjoyed themselves. Maybe he can survive another shopping trip.

Third drabble for Yaypril, with some Wolfpack cuddle pile this time!
Day 3 - Sleep
Wolffe stirs awake when an elbow digs into his ribs. He shifts until he鈥檚 comfortable again, not holding it over whoever hit him. It鈥檚 a tight fit, him, Sinker, and Boost, all cramped up in the same bunk together, so those kinds of accidents are bound to happen.
It鈥檚 definitely better than the alternative: each of them sleeping alone, only to be plagued by nightmares of the Malevolent. Wolffe barely closed his eyes the week that followed the massacre, and he only managed to rest again once they agreed to stay by his side for the night.
It calms him, just to know they鈥檙e here, that they鈥檙e safe, that if anything terrible were to happen again, he鈥檇 be right here to protect them, or at least, fall with them. He鈥檚 had too many dreams where he failed to save them, he refuses to ever let it happen for real.
But there鈥檚 no need to worry, because they鈥檙e right there with him, warm and solid, Boost pressed against his side and Sinker half-sprawled on top of him, his head laying on his chest; he once mentioned how it helped, how listening to his or Boost鈥檚 heartbeat reassured him, proved him they were still alive.
Both of them look peaceful, their breathing even and undisturbed. Boost is snoring lightly, and while the sound would be annoying to others, to Wolffe, it鈥檚 a constant reminder that he鈥檚 fine, that nothing bad is happening. All is good. They鈥檙e safe.
Now that he鈥檚 checked on them, Wolffe finally feels like he can go back to sleep. It doesn鈥檛 take long, not when he鈥檚 so acutely aware of their soothing presence. He knows he won鈥檛 have to fear any nightmare, not while they stay together. It鈥檚 okay to close his eyes, to let exhaustion wash over him.
They鈥檙e safe.

i made "the 501st goes to Target", "the disaster lineage goes to Target", "The Clone Wars Squad 鈩 (+Satine) goes to Target", "The Rebels go to Target", "The Original Trilogy Gang Goes To Target", 鈥淭he Driods of Star Wars go to Target (chaos ensues)鈥,聽 and now I give you:
the 104th go to target
Wolffe: whenever wolffe is at target, he makes sure to stock up on eye drops. he has always been super bothered by arid weather drying out his eyes, and when he got his cybernetic eye, it only got worse. desert planets and all of the sand getting in the joints of his eye are tourture and he refuses to go through that kind of pain again if he can help it. he and anakin don鈥檛 interact that much, but when they do, they either talk about ahsoka, or s a n d .聽
wolffe also likes to walk with plo and they chat about the shenanigans the wolfpack pulled recently. they also use this time to talk about themselves. something about the warm lighting and the close shelves creating a sense of cozy closeness has always helped wolffe relax a bit and gets him to stop calling plo 鈥渟ir鈥 off duty. plo listens as wolffe talks about the chaotic clone commander (+ rex) group chat. wolffe also appreciates the advice plo gives him whenever he talks about this one girl who works at 79s that caught his eye. plo likes to to tease him, but in the end, he is the reason wolffe had the courage to talk to her at all.聽
wolfe also buys a LOT of snacks and tote bags and speeder-bike locks. because he loves his squad. he does. but a man has gotta eat, so he locks away his candy bars in a bag.
the boys always get into it anyway, and wolffe is 87% sure that plo helps break in. they leave his favorite candy for him though, and wolffe has a hard time trying to complain about them.聽
Boost: goes straight to the hair isle. sinker stands behind him, making pun after pun about the brand names of different pomade. boost started to frequent using a hair product obi-wan suggested to him. obi-wan was quick to insist that he himself doesn鈥檛 use it, but heard it was good through the space-grape vine. however, one time ahsoka told boost that he smelled like obi-wan, and its not like either of the two men wear cologne.聽
so naturally, boost and sinker make up elaborate stories about obi-wan being involved in some conspiracy with the hair product company. they build upon it every time they go to target. plo overheard once, and gave them a blank look. they shut up, but then plo quietly added that obi wan hides the product in his underwear drawer, according to ahsoka.聽
so.聽
the story continues.聽
boost also has a tradition where he lets sinker guide him around the store with his eyes closed, just to make sure he doesn鈥檛 hit any walls. boost will then randomly stop and thrust his arm out. whatever he points to, he has to buy. though sinker is only supposed to make sure he doesn鈥檛 run into anything, he has on multiple occasions steered boost into buying goofy things, like lingerie.聽
Sinker: though he isn鈥檛 even allowed to wear them, he will occasionally buy graphic tees. he really likes studying the art, and he keeps them in the drawers with the pint for their armor and gunships, and calls them 鈥渄esign inspo鈥. plo got him an actual book about how to create dynamic designs, and sinker looked at it for hours. he keeps it in the barracks on coruscant, and its one of the things he misses most about the planet when he is away.聽
sinker also has a love for monster energy, even though it makes him hyper for a full 24 hours. he鈥檚 literally had to go out running with some brothers on a different sleep schedule (or with anakin or any other person up at ungodly hours of night), just to get the energy out. his favorite is the meiloorun flavored one. he only ever gets one at a time. once he got two cans and saved the second for another night, but a shiny found it and that Did Not Go Well (the shiny is fine, he just ended up in medbay because he was shaking so badly. ten year olds with 20 year old bodies who are still ten consuming caffeine doesn鈥檛 mix well. sinker is 11. its only slightly better.)聽
the most noticeable incident is the time sinker bought a can, and then went to walk with boost. while drinking it. it the store. he was going crazy, and boost always returns his energy,
so cue chaos.
they saw a shirt with a wolf on it and started running around, howling. they then ran into the pen and pencil section, and started throwing pencil boxes. they ended up fighting over a handful of pens, all of which snapped, and ink got EVERYWHERE. ahsoka was there with them that day and peeked her head into the isle in time to see it happen. she took a holo-pic before running away, her brothers chasing her. they forgot to tell anyone about the ink. it became an inside joke between the three, and they laughed about it every time they were together. the stain was still there even when ahsoka was all grown up, and boost and sinker weren鈥檛 there to laugh about it anymore.聽
in fact, that stain outlived all of them.聽
Comet: comet is basically dad jr. he walks around with wolffe a lot, and they tend to walk in a comfortable silence. they can only trust each other (and plo) to say they鈥檒l be quiet and then actually follow through. comet holds the list of things they need to get and steers the cart while wolffe puts things in and evaluates prices.聽
comet spends the rest of his time in the book section. he especially likes to look at dad joke books. he never buys any, but he memorizes and/or writes down jokes and tells them later. usually he likes to tell jokes when it鈥檚 completely silent or there is an awkward pause in conversation.聽
comet is also tasked with getting everyone鈥檚 caf orders from the space starbucks outlet in the store. he鈥檚 the only one who has the patience to actually stand in line. he also gets those glass bottles of frappuccinos but he always gets. so many. he genuinely thinks that they taste good, but its a running joke that the amount of bottles he gets is directly proportional to how many reports he does in one day.聽
Warthog: really likes playing tutorial games in the video game section. he doesn't have many games on his data pad, but he really loves videos games, especially ones that involve flying. plo bought the wolfpack a handheld console once, and while it officially belongs to all of the clones, warthog gets to hold on to it, since he uses it the most. plo always gives him enough credits to buy one new game per target trip for the 鈥渟quad鈥. it always happens to be just enough to pay for whatever game warthog has been talking about the past few months.聽
he also sometimes will join up with boost and sinker to be the chaos trio 鈩. warthog likes more quiet pranks in comparison to the goofy and large pranks the other too pull, for example, he bought a pack of pens and left it on the bottom bed of boost and sinker鈥檚 bunk. the two never found out who it was, but they knew someone else found out about the pen incident.聽
(warthog had been one isle over, and figured out what happened).聽
warthog also really loves trying on ridiculous outfits with clashing clothes. the pack gets together and votes on the most atrocious outfit, a picture of which gets sent to the group chat to become the new pfp for the time being.聽
Plo: plo buys snacks and headphones and blankets and dad things 鈩 . He and comet and wolffe all pick out fun things to bring home to the pack. either something a brother mentioned they wanted, or a trinket that reminded them of someone, or just an extra blanket because boost and sinker keep fighting over them, the resident parents of the pack will make sure to grab it.聽
when doing his quiet walks with wolffe, plo talks about his padawan days, or goes into the detail on the plot of the latest thriller holo-novel he鈥檚 been reading. wolffe always gives him crap about buying flimsi copies of his novels for stealth missions, instead of just downloading them to a private data pad. plo always gives some line about the aesthetic, but really, plo only did it once to try it, and it annoyed his troopers so much he only reads printed novels now.聽
he participates in some shenanigans himself. he goes over to the bouncy ball crate and chooses one to carry with him through the day. whenever he senses one of his men nearby, he will gently float the ball over the aisles and bonk them on the head before quickly calling the ball back to him and running away.聽
he doesn鈥檛 buy much for himself, other than the headphones. he always gets cheap ones because often times they break or he looses them.聽
the rest of his money goes to buying things for his pack and ahsoka.聽
when ahsoka accompanies them, which becomes less and less frequent as the war progresses, he helps her pick out new boots for battle, because she wears out the soles very quickly. jedi are not supposed to have worldly possessions, but he found a lamp shaped like a loth cat, and if anakin can have a pod racing poster in his room, plo figured ahsoka can have a cute-shaped light.
ahsoka named the lamp after r2.
the time they went to target after ahsoka left, plo bought himself a loth cat lamp.聽
he named it after her.聽
+bonus:
they dragged along baby 鈥榮oka: in the first days of the war, before ahsoka was even anakin鈥檚 padawan, they took ahsoka to their target. she goes FERAL oh its so funny. it was only her second time there, and it had been YEARS since she last went, so she was very excited. eventually wolffe stopped her by kneeling in front of her and put his hands on her shoulders. he calmed her down enough for her to hop onto his shoulders so he could give her a tour. plo buys her a lemonade at the space starbucks outlet at the end of the day, and they went to dex鈥檚 for lunch, on obi-wan鈥檚 suggestion.聽
she l o v e s target so much that when she became anakin鈥檚 padawan, it was one of the first things she suggested they do to bond together.聽

"I told you not to hit that guy." Boost grumbles, gripping the bars of the cell. He looks across the narrow path into the cell across from him. "They may as well keep me in here because when I get out of here I'm going to kick your a-"
"Yeah, Yeah. I hear ya." Sinker interrupts, waving a hand dismissively. He continues to lay on his cell bench, unconcerned with Boost's anger. "Keep getting all hot-headed like that and those little bantha bacon strips on your head is going to start to sizzle and crisp up. Besides," He sits up with a groan, stretching, "You were the one who bumped into him and made him angry. I was only standing up for you."
"Don't you dare blame this on me, Sink." Boost glares. "You are going to get it, just you wait." He trails off, footsteps echoing down the hall.
A tired Commander Fox appears, rubbing his forehead."You two again?" He sighs, looking back and and forth at the two troopers. "I thought I told Wolffe to warn me before the Pack was here on leave." The Commander growls, folding his arms across his chest."So do you want to call Wolffe, or shall I?"
"D-Do we have to?," Sinker stutters, wandering closer to the bars."Can't we just stay in here for the night?" He pleads.
"Huh? Why?" Fox's arms drop. "You want to stay here for the night?"
Boost nods. "Its way better than facing the Commander you see. And sitting in here gives us more time to-"
"Time to come up with a good excuse?" Commander Fox sighs, shaking his head. "Fine, but the two of you owe me. Keep it quiet in here and you can stay."
"Yes sir!"

You just had to get through tonight, that鈥檚 it, just get through the next few hours of celebrating the end of the war, and then you could go home and cry your eyes out. Just keep up the happy face. Smile, nod, joke, repeat.
I should have known something was up, the way they pulled away from me, the way they kept coming up with excuses to spend time anywhere but with me, however I didn鈥檛 want to believe it, how could I? How could I believe that my husband, the one I dedicated myself to, the one I loved unconditionally would have turned his back on me.
Was I not enough? Not pretty enough? Not adventurous enough? Was it something about my skin? My eyes? Maybe it was my hair? Maybe I wasn鈥檛 funny enough? Not kind enough?
鈥淗ey鈥 I turned to look at Sinker, his face was full of concern, 鈥測ou okay?鈥
鈥淵eah鈥 I gave him my best fake smile, 鈥渨hy wouldn鈥檛 I be?鈥
鈥淵ou sure?鈥 Sinker looked as though he didn鈥檛 fully believe me, but took my nod as an answer and focused back on the table. We were all drinking, all laughing, joking, but I wasn鈥檛 really listening.
鈥淎nyone want a refill?鈥 I asked, to the table, a few of the guys raised their hands, I nodded, taking their order and headed to the bar. I motioned to the droid behind the bar, gave our order as quickly as possible, I was focused on my hands remembering what just happened hours ago, when we landed.
鈥淗oney, I鈥檓 home鈥 I noticed his shoes by the door, I couldn鈥檛 help the smile that graced my lips. Thinking I鈥檇 never have to leave his side again, I was home and this was it. We could start our lives.
鈥淒id you hear?鈥 I asked as I left my bag by the door, it still felt weird, even after all these years calling his place, our place, especially since oftentimes I was on the Triumphant with the 104th. I walked further into the apartment. 鈥淭urns out Chancellor Palpatine was behind the whole thing鈥 I continued talking, despite the nagging feeling in the back of my head, 鈥淔ox apparently found out evidence, and turned it into the Jedi, isn鈥檛 that great! All our plans 鈥︹ my voice caught in my throat at the scene that was before, it took me a minute to understand the motions I was seeing belonged to my spouse and his co-worker.
They just sat there looking at me, 鈥淏abe 鈥︹ silence permeated every inch of the apartment, suffocating me, choking me, 鈥測ou鈥檙e home sooner than I thought?鈥
鈥淗ow 鈥 how 鈥︹ were the only words that came out, as tears began to prick my eyes. He got up from the bed, donning a pair of pants, he walked towards me, I took a step back. Until my eyes locked on their co-worker鈥檚, I don鈥檛 know what came over me I lunged for his coworker, ready to scratch out their eyes, I鈥檓 not sure who screamed, whether it was them, him, or me, all I know is he grabbed me by the waist dragging me away from the bedroom, closing the door behind us. I turned to face him, my fists pounding on his chest, tears streaming down my face, 鈥淗ow could you! Why? WHY!鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 sorry!鈥 Is all he said, as he held me, trying to prevent me from hurting him.
鈥淲HY!?鈥
鈥淩eally!鈥 He finally stated, as he pushed me onto the chair in the living room.
鈥淲hat鈥檚 that supposed to mean?鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e never here! When you are, it鈥檚 for two weeks, maybe a month and then you鈥檙e off again, with your boys鈥
鈥淲hat!鈥
鈥淐ome on, you care more about those clones than about me!鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 not true. They鈥檙e my men, I look after them when they鈥檙e sick, when they鈥檙e injured. But I鈥檓 married to you! There鈥檚 no one 鈥 and even if I did it doesn鈥檛 excuse what you did.鈥
鈥淎gree to disagree鈥
鈥淚 鈥︹ my anger grew, it boiled within me, I wanted to punch him, kick him. He stood running his hands through his hair.
鈥淟isten let me get rid of them, and then you and I can talk鈥
I didn鈥檛 say anything, just sat on the chair and watched as he stood heading towards the bedroom.
鈥淵ou ever gonna bring those back over?鈥 Wolffe鈥檚 gruff voice was unmistakable, as he came and stood beside me. I discreetly wiped the tears as I turned to look at him.
鈥淪orry, guess I鈥檓 just tired鈥
鈥淪urprised you鈥檙e not home, thought you鈥檇 be celebrating with your husband鈥 Wolffe watched your every move, he noticed something was off about you. Then again he always noticed everything about you, you鈥檇 been the apple of his eye ever since you walked on to the Triumphant. When you mentioned you were married, it broke him, he was miserable for weeks, but in the end he鈥檇 rather be in your life than not at all.
鈥淗e understood. Said that we had all the time to celebrate just the two of us, so why not spend tonight with my men.鈥 I focused back on the drink in my hand.
鈥淲olffe, you said you were going to bring us the drinks鈥 Sinker stated, he grabbed the tray that had the refills and brought it to the booth.
I watched as Sinker walked away. Wolffe stayed beside me, his eyes were examining every inch of my face. 鈥淲anna get some air?鈥 I shrugged, Wolffe nodded and guided me outside, his hand hovered over my lower back but never rested against it as he moved us through the crowd. The cold air hit my face like a punch, the tears began pricking against my eyes again. 鈥淵ou gonna tell me what鈥檚 really going on?鈥
I turned to look at Wolffe as we walked over to the fence that kept the civilians safe from the speeder-way 鈥淣othing鈥檚 going on, Wolffe鈥
鈥淪inker, may be dumb enough or drunk enough to accept your lies, but mesh鈥檒a I know you. I know you a lot better than you think I do, and I know you are doing your best to keep a brave front, doing your best to keep from crying, no matter how hard you try, I can tell.鈥
鈥淲olffe,鈥 my voice pleaded. I didn鈥檛 want to talk about this. I closed my eyes trying to keep my sadness locked in, this was supposed to be a night of celebration, not sadness.
鈥淢esh鈥檒a鈥 Wolffe pressed his hand against my back, 鈥渢alk to me, it breaks my heart to see you like this, what happened? I know something has been going on with you for the past few months, you鈥檝e been sad for weeks. There鈥檚 been a cloud hanging over you and I鈥檝e tried to just be there for you, but this 鈥 it鈥檚 like the darkness seeped into you tonight. Allow me to carry some of that darkness for you, mesh鈥檒a.鈥 I couldn鈥檛 help looking at Wolffe, his eyes, his stance, everything pleaded with me, 鈥淎fter all, why do you think I have such broad shoulders? It鈥檚 not just to add to my rugged handsomeness鈥 I couldn鈥檛 help chuckling as I wiped another tear, but that only led to a full breakdown. Wolffe wrapped me in a hug, pressing me against him, carrying me practically.
鈥淢esh鈥檒a talk to me, what happened?鈥 Wolffe鈥檚 mind raced to various scenarios, as far as he knew your husband didn鈥檛 have a dangerous job, he wasn鈥檛 ill. Did something happen to one of your other family members? Maybe one of your siblings?
鈥淲hen I 鈥 home 鈥 saw 鈥 right there 鈥︹
Wolffe did understand anything, you said in between the sobs. He bit his bottom lip, 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, mesh鈥檒a, I want to say I understood, but I got maybe every other word鈥
I couldn鈥檛 help chuckle into his chest. I pulled away from his arms, running my hands through my hair. I motioned for him to follow me to the bench down the street. I took a moment to breathe before I told him what was waiting for me when I got home. I noticed Wolffe鈥檚 hand clenched against his knees as my story progressed.
鈥淚 should鈥檝e known something was up. I kept having this nagging feeling in the back of my head, for months, every time we were on leave, or I had to extend my leave, he just 鈥 he kept pushing me away. Telling me he was tired, that work was difficult, but the truth is he just - - he doesn鈥檛 鈥︹ my voice began to break again, I cleared my throat, focusing on my hands. 鈥淗e said it was my fault鈥
鈥淗e said what?鈥 Wolffe growled, turning to look at you.
鈥淗e said that I spent too much time with you guys, that I never got a long enough leave 鈥︹
鈥淢esh鈥檒a,鈥 Wolffe grabbed your hand, it was gentle, more gentle than he ever imagined possible he could be, 鈥渘o. No. Nothing you did would even come close to justifying what he did.鈥
鈥淚 know. In my head, I know that, in fact I told him that, but it's just 鈥︹
Wolffe鈥檚 anger was building, how dare this man 鈥 Wolffe resolved within himself he was going to pay this man a visit. 鈥淲here are you staying?鈥
鈥淲ith my sister, I can鈥檛 鈥 after seeing it, after knowing how many countless times they spent together in our bed 鈥 I just 鈥︹
鈥淟et me take you to your sister鈥檚, make sure you get there okay, please mesh鈥檒a鈥
I nodded, as he helped me off the bench, we walked in silence till we took an air taxi to her place.
Wolffe watched as you walked into your sister鈥檚 building, he was angry, beyond angry, how dare the person you've dedicated yourself to treat you this way, how dare he 鈥 all Wolffe wanted was to pull you into his arms again, keeping you safe, keeping you from feeling the hurt you were currently feeling, the betrayal.
He took his time walking back to 79鈥檚, it probably would鈥檝e been faster to take the airtaxi back, but he needed the air, needed the time. He would need to find out where he worked, maybe the war was over, but he had one last mission, to hurt the man who hurt you.
鈥淲olffe?鈥 Sinker watched as his vod came back into 79鈥檚, he looked angry, properly angry. He hadn鈥檛 seen him this angry since Khorm.
鈥淲hat?鈥
鈥淲here did you go?鈥
鈥淣owhere, just for a walk鈥
鈥淟ong walk, did something happen, you seem pissed鈥
Wolffe wanted to tell Sinker what happened, what you told him, but it wasn鈥檛 his place. 鈥淛ust thinking about what this will mean for us, the end of the war.鈥
鈥淢aybe you can tell her how you feel, I mean I know she鈥檚 married but 鈥 you never know.鈥
鈥淚 won鈥檛 do that to her鈥 Wolffe let out quietly, 鈥淚 won鈥檛 hurt her like that; we鈥檙e friends and I鈥檇 rather be her friend than nothing.鈥 Even id your husband didn't appreciate what he had with you, Wolffe wasn't ready to add to your hurt. You didn't deserve that 鈥淟isten, I鈥檓 gonna 鈥︹ Wolffe scrubbed his face, 鈥淚鈥檓 going to head to the barracks鈥
鈥淎lready?鈥
鈥淵eah, I just 鈥 I鈥檓 just tired鈥
鈥淲here is she?鈥
鈥淪he went home鈥
鈥淥h. Okay. I understand.鈥 Sinker nodded, probably why Wolffe didn鈥檛 want to stick around knowing you had gone home to your husband. Sinker met the guy once and he never fully understood what you saw in him, the man was a jerk, some of the things he said to you, even how he looked at other women when you weren鈥檛 paying attention or had walked away to the refresher, it sickened him, but at the end of the day you loved him, and more importantly you trusted him, so he just bit his tongue. Sinker watched as Wolffe exited the club, despite the glaringly obvious there was something else going on with him.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Wolffe spent three days stalking his prey once he learned where he worked, he followed the di鈥檏ut everywhere, to work, to his home, even to his lover鈥檚 home where he spent all of four minutes in the bedroom; Wolffe sniggered, what did this man have that made you want to commit to him.
He watched as he walked down the street, the man looked so smug, as though he was the greatest thing that had ever graced this known universe. Wolffe waited, his prey was near, he could almost smell the horrendous odour of the man鈥檚 cologne. Wolffe鈥檚 hood kept from his view, the cloak and mask he had on definitely hid his face and who he was - despite what might happen, he didn鈥檛 want you to get into trouble or have to deal with the man鈥檚 ego.
Just a few more minutes 鈥 Wolffe reached out to grab his prey, it was quick as he threw him against the wall.
鈥淕et off!鈥 Wolffe didn鈥檛 respond simply punching the man in his stomach. 鈥淭ake it鈥 he offered quietly and shakily, as he gave over his wallet, Wolffe chuckled as though mere credits could save him, Wolffe landed another hit, this time in the man鈥檚 thigh, 鈥淲hat do you want?鈥 He let out as another blow landed in his abdomen.
鈥淣othing鈥 was all Wolffe said, his modulated voice filling the air, as his knee met the man鈥檚 groin, he hit with full force.
鈥淭hen why!鈥 His prey fell to his knees guarding his appendage that he clearly valued more than the person who loved him unconditionally.
鈥淏ecause you had everything, and chose to destroy it, rather than cherish it鈥 Wolffe looked down at his prey, he was quivering as understanding flooded his eyes, 鈥渟he risked her life for you, she loved you with everything, and it wasn鈥檛 enough for you.鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e one of her clones鈥 he spat out, Wolffe sensed his disgust, his jealousy at the word clone, 鈥渟hould've known she would鈥檝e run back crying to your pathetic 鈥︹ Wolffe didn鈥檛 let him finish as his fist hit him square in the jaw knocking the man out cold. He quickly checked to make sure the man was still breathing, and sent out an anonymous call for help. He walked away, dropping the cloak and mask in a nearby incinerator. Hopefully, it won't come back to bite you.

鈥淚 don鈥檛 understand鈥 I looked at the Red Corrie Guards standing at my sister鈥檚 door.
鈥淢a鈥檃m it鈥檚 a simple question, where were you, between 12:30 and 13:00 hours yesterday鈥
鈥淲ith my family鈥
鈥淣o where else?鈥
鈥淣o鈥
鈥淒o you have an alibi?鈥
鈥淵es, my sister and her kids, we spent the day at the Coruscanti Gardens, we have the stubs for the entry and I鈥檓 sure you鈥檇 be able to find security footage of us. Now, I鈥檓 going to ask again, what is this about?鈥
鈥淵esterday at approximately 12:30 hours, your husband was attacked.鈥
鈥淚s he okay?鈥 My concern hit the roof.
"You're concerned?鈥
鈥淥f course, I am, he may be a loser and lowlife, but he鈥檚 still my husband.鈥
鈥淢a鈥檃m can you think of anyone who may want to hurt your husband?鈥
鈥淣o, of course 鈥 not鈥 I thought back to Wolffe鈥檚 clenched hands, the anger that radiated off him.
鈥淢a鈥檃m?鈥
鈥淢y husband has been cheating on me with his co-worker, you may want to double check with their spouse. Maybe they found out.鈥
鈥淚s that why you are staying here?鈥
鈥淵es. Now, can I ask if the bastard is going to die?鈥
鈥淣o, ma鈥檃m. We received an anonymous call just shortly after the incident, medics were able to render aid quite quickly. When the medics found him, he kept repeating your name. Are you certain you have no idea who may want to cause him bodily harm?鈥
鈥淎side from me, no. I鈥檓 sorry, and I have an alibi鈥
鈥淯nderstood. Thank you for your time, ma鈥檃m鈥
鈥淥ne quick question, if you don鈥檛 mind?鈥
鈥淥f course鈥
鈥淚s he still at the hospital?鈥
鈥淚 believe so, ma鈥檃m.鈥
鈥淭hank you鈥
I watched as the Coruscanti Guards nodded and walked away from Mel鈥檚 door. 鈥淲hat was that?鈥
鈥淭he jackass got himself beat up鈥
鈥淕ood. Is he going to live?鈥 She asked as I walked over to my comm.
鈥淎pparently鈥
鈥淧ity. Are you going to call him?鈥
I let out a breath, 鈥淣o. I鈥檓 going to go see him.鈥
鈥淲HAT!鈥
鈥淢el鈥
鈥淒on鈥檛 Mel me, after what that man did, after how he hurt you, you鈥檙e going to go take care of him.鈥
鈥淣o. I said I鈥檓 going to see him, not take care of him. I need to see him.鈥
鈥淲ant me to come with?鈥
I shook my head, 鈥淚 got this鈥
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My eyes took in the bruised man that lay on the bed, and the stupid trollop who held his hand, my anger fuelled within me at seeing them together, maker how I wanted to scratch their eyes out. I stood at the entrance of the med room.
鈥淐ould you give us a minute?鈥 My tone was clipped as I directed my attention to the trollop, my fists clenched by my side.
鈥淚鈥檓 not going anywhere, this is all your fault鈥 the trollop had the audacity to comment.
鈥淚t鈥檚 okay, babe鈥 my heart stung, hearing his pet name for me directed to the trollop, 鈥済ive us a few minutes. Maybe get yourself a cup of caf鈥
鈥淒o you want anything babe?鈥
They were doing this on purpose. 鈥淢aybe some water鈥
鈥淪ure thing鈥 the trollop stood from their seat heading out, before giving me cut-eye all the way out the door. Gods I wanted to smack that perfect face of theirs, mark them on the outside to show the world what kind of trollop they truly were. Silence permeated the room once again.
I watched as his lips set in a tight thin lip, 鈥淐ouldn鈥檛 do it yourself, so you set one of your men on me, huh?鈥
鈥淓xcuse me?鈥
鈥淵ou heard me鈥
鈥淚 have no idea 鈥︹
鈥淥h please, just be honest you probably slept with one of them and got him to attack me鈥
鈥淵ou son of 鈥︹
鈥淥ne more step and I press the button for security鈥
鈥淔irst off, let me explain something to you, you worm. Unlike you, I don鈥檛 need someone to attack you for me, I can do that all on my own. Secondly, if someone - and I highly doubt that someone would - attack you on my behalf, unlike you, people like me for me, and I don鈥檛 need to sleep with them. Thirdly, if you got your ass handed to you, that has nothing to do with my guys. They would have killed you and not even thought twice about it.鈥
鈥淟isten you can try to sound all high and mighty, but I know the truth, you had one of your men do this鈥
鈥淓xactly what is this?鈥 I motioned to his prone position, 鈥淎nything broken?鈥
鈥淣o鈥
鈥淚nternal bleeding?鈥
鈥淣o鈥
鈥淏rain bleeding, brain swelling, any life-threatening injuries?鈥
鈥淥bviously not鈥
鈥淭hen exactly what is your issue? Some bruises?鈥
鈥淣ot just bruises鈥
鈥淪o something is broken?鈥
鈥淣o, just 鈥 strained鈥 he answered with a clipped tone.
鈥淲hat鈥檚 strained?鈥 He didn鈥檛 answer, simply winced when he shifted his lower half, I covered my mouth fighting the chuckle that wanted to erupt, 鈥淥h. I see.鈥
鈥淵ou really telling me, you don鈥檛 know who could have done this鈥 he motioned to his lower half.
鈥淗onestly, if I knew, I would give them the biggest kiss I could, but no. I have no idea who could鈥檝e done this. Listen, I鈥檓 sorry for what happened to you鈥 I took a minute to think about that, 鈥渁ctually, you know what, I鈥檓 not. You deserve to have your ass handed to you. You broke my heart. I loved you for years, years I鈥檝e put up with your nonsense. Your ups and downs. I鈥檝e forgiven a lot. I was there with you when things were tough at the beginning, I was there when you lost your father and it nearly broke you. All those nights we spent discussing our future, all those nights we held each other, and 鈥 when the war started and I got shifted from the barracks to an actual ship, all of that what 鈥 all those plans, all those hopes 鈥︹ my bottom lip started to quiver, 鈥淚 was faithful to you. I fought for you, and you 鈥︹ I shook my head, 鈥淚鈥檓 going to go clean out my stuff. I really just came here to make sure you were in fact alive, and to tell you goodbye.鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e really leaving?鈥 His eyes looked into mine as though reality hit.
鈥淵ou broke my heart, and you blamed me for all of it. I鈥檓 not saying I鈥檓 completely innocent here, or that maybe I couldn't have tried harder, but every time I made an effort you pushed away, you didn鈥檛 try. You didn鈥檛 even attempt to try. You 鈥 you just went and 鈥︹ I wiped away a tear, 鈥淵es, I鈥檓 leaving. I鈥檓 gonna get my stuff. I鈥檓 going to stay with my sister, they have a room for me.鈥
鈥淟isten, maybe we can 鈥︹
鈥淲e, we can鈥檛 do anything, not anymore. I close my eyes and I see you 鈥 I can鈥檛 鈥 when I look at you, that鈥檚 all I see now. You tainted everything, everything we built, everything we hoped for, all for what a quick lay? I can鈥檛 ever forgive you for that.鈥
鈥淚t wasn鈥檛 a quick lay鈥
鈥淭hen what was it?鈥
鈥淟ove. I love them.鈥
鈥淚 see鈥 I nodded, wiping a tear, 鈥淲ell then all the best, take care of yourself.鈥
I headed out of the room, 鈥淲ait!鈥 I turned to look at him, 鈥淚 am sorry, I didn鈥檛 mean 鈥 I did love you, I loved you with all my heart, but it 鈥 the war, it changed everything, and you weren鈥檛 there. I鈥檓 sorry but you weren鈥檛, and they were.鈥
鈥淟ike I said, take care of yourself鈥
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I wanted to comm Wolffe, thank him for what he did after all there was only one person I had told from the 104th about what happened, but one day turned into two, then a week, then a month, and before I knew it, a year had gone by without seeing or speaking to Wolffe. I missed him. I saw Sinker from time to time, since he started dating my best friend, he kept me informed of Wolffe, about how he was doing, how all the 104th was doing, however he only offered the bare minimum, not sure if that was due to Wolffe鈥檚 request or maybe because he was angry at me for being out of touch with him for so long.
Oftentimes my mind floated back to Wolffe, how he was always there for me, especially when I needed him the most. I just don鈥檛 know why he didn鈥檛 reach out to me, why he kept his distance.
I sat at the cafe, taking sips of my tea, as I thought about how my life had changed since the end of the war. I was now single. Living in a one bedroom apartment, working on getting my degree for my doctorate to be a full fledged physician, I did my best to push those thoughts aside and focused back on my textbooks.
Wolffe wanted to call you, he wanted to be there for you, but he knew you needed space. Needed to figure yourself out. Maker, how he wanted to be there for you, in fact he showed up once at your sister鈥檚, you were playing with your niece and nephew, he watched you through the window of the common room, you looked happy. He wanted to keep that memory, he wanted to see you always happy. He wished his feet would have carried him to your door, but he ran into your sister, she told him you were handling everything as best as you could, you still had your days, sometimes she woke up to your crying, but you were busy with school getting your doctorate. He was so proud of you, it was a dream of yours to become a doctor, and now you were doing it.
When Wolffe walked into the cafe the last person he expected to see was you, his breath caught in his throat. You looked just as beautiful as the last time he saw you, when he walked you to your sister鈥檚 the night of the celebration. He debated for a while what he should do, should he stay or should he go? He watched as you took another sip of your tea but it was empty, he chuckled, you only were able to study if you had tea. He quietly walked up to the counter and ordered another tea for you and his usual hazelnut caf.
With his smoothest of motions, he placed the tea in front of you, the look of shock on your face, was totally worth it.
鈥淲olffe?鈥 I couldn鈥檛 believe my eyes, as he grinned at me, maker, how I missed that grin.
鈥淗ey mesh鈥檒a, been a while鈥 Wolffe motioned to the chair beside him, 鈥渕ind if I sit down?鈥
鈥淣o. Please.鈥 I couldn鈥檛 hold back the smile at seeing him, 鈥淵ou look good,鈥 I motioned to all of him, he was in civilian clothing, that really brought out his shoulders and wide chest. He had a full beard growing, and even his hair was a little longer.
鈥淭hank you, mesh鈥檒a. You look good too. How鈥檝e you been? How are things?鈥
鈥淯m 鈥 well鈥 I chuckled, 鈥渁s you can see I鈥檓 back in school鈥
鈥淚 heard, getting your doctorate to be a physician, right?鈥
鈥淵eah. There鈥檚 a special program, because of my years of service with the GAR, and my own medical knowledge as a medic, they shortened the schooling from five years to two and a half. It鈥檚 a lot of work, but it鈥檚 great.鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 happy for you, that鈥檚 what you always wanted. I remember all those conversations we had during the war.鈥
鈥淭hanks, what about you, what are you doing?鈥
鈥淪till a Commander, but I鈥檓 actually up for a promotion soon.鈥
鈥淩eally, that鈥檚 awesome鈥
鈥淭hanks, I'll be getting my stars and becoming a General by week's end鈥
鈥淲olffe that鈥檚 amazing, but I thought you wanted to open a bakery鈥
鈥淥h, I did鈥
鈥淵ou did?鈥
鈥淵eah, but I don鈥檛 bake, learned that the hard way鈥 Wolffe chuckled, 鈥淚 almost burned down the kitchen, but I have learned to cook, which I thoroughly enjoy, and being the owner of a bakery is just as fun as being a baker.鈥
鈥淭hat鈥檚 amazing, I鈥檓 so happy for you, what bakery?鈥
鈥淭his one鈥 Wolffe chuckled, 鈥渄id the Wolffe symbol on the cups not give it away?鈥
鈥淥h my stars!鈥 My hand smacked against my forehead, 鈥淧up cafe, how did 鈥 clearly, my brain is fried from all my studying鈥 I chuckled, 鈥渘o wonder, I love this place, I come here all the time to study, usually after a shift at the hospital.鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 glad you feel comfortable here, we aim to make sure everyone feels included.鈥
鈥淲ell you definitely did that; I just saw Sinker a few days ago and he never mentioned you had a bakery.鈥
鈥淩eally, you see Sinker?鈥 Wolffe couldn鈥檛 help the feeling of his heart breaking a little, so you had kept in touch with the rest of the squad, just not him, and why hadn't Sinker said anything.
I nodded as I took a sip of the new tea that Wolffe brought me, 鈥淵eah, not all the time though, between studying, working at the hospital, and doing my rounds as a physician, I don鈥檛 have a lot of time, but I saw him cause he was picking up Rea, for their date.鈥
鈥淥h 鈥 so you live with Rea?鈥
鈥淣o, she just happened to be over, and it was easier for him to just get her from my place.鈥
鈥淥h, I see,鈥 Wolffe nodded as he took a sip of his caf.
I bit my lip, there was something I wanted to say for the longest time and now the opportunity presented itself, 鈥淲olffe, about 鈥︹
鈥淚鈥檓 sorry鈥 Wolffe offered before you finished, he loved your confused look, it was like a puppy unsure of what was happening around them, 鈥渇or not reaching out, after that night. I wanted to 鈥︹
鈥淣o鈥 I reached forward and held his hand, I was shocked at my reaction, it was as though my hand had a mind of its own, and now that it was there, feeling the warmth coming from his hand, it realized it didn鈥檛 want to be anywhere else, 鈥渋t was my fault. After everything that happened with him, I just 鈥 I was embarrassed. I always talked about how amazing he was and how he was someone I could trust implicitly, and 鈥 it was my fault. I just couldn鈥檛 bear to deal with all the sad looks and pity glances from people, so I pulled away, not just from you, from everyone. If it wasn鈥檛 for Rea dating Sinker, I wouldn鈥檛 have even been talking to him.鈥
Wolffe couldn鈥檛 help the smirk on his face, as he held your hand, 鈥淭here鈥檚 nothing for you to be embarrassed about, he was the asshat, not you. You never did anything wrong.鈥
鈥淢aybe, but I probably didn鈥檛 help what led to the situation either, at least that鈥檚 what I think鈥 as I looked at Wolffe鈥檚 eyes, there was so much being said, how he made his cybernetic eye have so much emotion was always beyond me. 鈥淭here鈥檚 something else, I never got a chance to do, because of what happened. I never got a chance to thank you.鈥
鈥淭hank me? For what?鈥
鈥淚 know it was you, Wolffe鈥 I chuckled
鈥淚t was me鈥︹
鈥淲ho beat him up. I knew it the minute those Coruscanti Guards showed up at my sister鈥檚 place. I knew it the minute I saw him lying in that hospital bed.鈥
鈥淢esh鈥檒a, I鈥檓 not sure 鈥︹
鈥淲olffe鈥 I quirked my eyebrow at him, a low chuckle came out of him, as he squeezed my hand.
鈥淣ever could get anything past you, could I?鈥
鈥淣ope. Honestly, it was just what I needed; it gave me the push to leave him. I was dragging my heels for two weeks, and then when they showed up and told me what happened, I knew. Thank you for defending my honour.鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e welcome. He deserved a lot worse, but I didn鈥檛 want to get you in trouble.鈥
鈥淚鈥檓 glad you weren鈥檛 caught. I tried to keep tabs on the investigation to make sure you weren鈥檛 a prime suspect.鈥
鈥淚 didn鈥檛 care about what happened to me, all I cared about was the fact he didn鈥檛 appreciate what he had.鈥
鈥淵ou might not have cared, but I did. I鈥檝e always cared鈥 I looked from Wolffe to the books in front of me, my hand clutching the cup of tea a little harder.
鈥淭hat鈥檚 what friends are for, I guess. To care for you even when you don鈥檛 care about yourself鈥 Wolffe offered, he wanted to know where you were in the grand scheme of things, he wanted to ask you out, but truthfully, his timing clearly sucked, if you were that busy at the hospital.
鈥淭rue鈥 I swallowed the nerves down, did he only view me as a friend? 鈥淲hat鈥檚 new with you? Seeing anyone?鈥 I tried to pull my hand away, but Wolffe wouldn鈥檛 let me go.
鈥淣o. There鈥檚 never been anyone that could hold a candle to you, mesh鈥檒a鈥 Wolffe gave up caring, he wasted years pining for you, months keeping his distance, this couldn鈥檛 just be a coincidence that you both ran into each other. It had to be the will of the force, as his buir would say.
I felt my face heat as his statement, 鈥淲olffe?鈥 In the back of my head I always suspected he may have had feelings for me, but being married, I made a point never to entertain those thoughts.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 know what your status is, if you are ready to start dating again, or if you even have the time because of your studies, but mesh鈥檒a I have been in love with you since the day you stepped foot on to the Triumphant, and now that we鈥檝e all received the cure for our rapid aging, I have my own business, I鈥檓 going to be promoted to General in a few days, I finally feel I am worthy of you. Would you 鈥︹ Wolffe cleared his throat, 鈥淲ould you care to join me for dinner?鈥
Speechless, I was completely without speech at his confession. Since I stepped foot on the Triumphant? That was nearly five years ago now. For five years he was in love with me?
鈥淚 know this is probably a lot to take in, and maybe I鈥檓 rushing things, but I just 鈥 I don鈥檛 want to waste a minute. Not seeing you or talking to you this past year has been excruciating and now that you鈥檙e here 鈥 I鈥檓 sorry, I shouldn鈥檛 have said anything. Of course, you wouldn鈥檛 have feelings for me, I鈥檓 an idiot鈥 Wolffe pulled his hand away, what was he thinking!
鈥淲olffe鈥
鈥淢esh鈥檒a it鈥檚 my fault 鈥 I shouldn鈥檛 have 鈥 we can just be friends, I鈥檇 rather 鈥︹
鈥淲olffe鈥
鈥淣o, it鈥檚 fine, honestly 鈥 I鈥檇 rather have you in my life 鈥.鈥
鈥淲olffe!鈥 I pleaded for him to listen as I grabbed his hand, holding on to it, trying to soak up the feeling of utter and complete safety. He always offered me, 鈥淵es, I would love to go to dinner with you.鈥
He didn鈥檛 hear you properly, did you just say yes? Wolffe blinked a few times, his face must not have been hiding his shock in any way shape or form, because you started giggling, that sound that always made his heart flutter, 鈥淪orry, could you say that again.鈥
鈥淥f course, I鈥檇 say yes. Wolffe, you were there for me more times than I can count, you鈥檝e always treated me with respect and dignity. All this time that I didn鈥檛 see you or talk to you have been absolutely hellish for me too, the only reason, I drown myself with work is because well a - I love it, and b - it kept me from thinking about you. I鈥檝e always admired you Wolffe, and that鈥檚 also partly why I tried my best to keep my distance while we were on the ship; because I knew, if I spent more time with you, I鈥檇 fall in love with you. I couldn鈥檛 betray my husband 鈥 ex-husband like that. I would love to go to dinner with you.鈥
鈥淗ow about tonight?鈥
鈥淩ather than wait for tonight, why don鈥檛 you walk me to my apartment so I can drop off my textbooks, and we can spend the day together, catching up, talking and just see where things lead鈥
鈥淚鈥檇 love that cyar鈥檌ka鈥
鈥淢e too鈥

The Wolfpack
All references based off pics of Temuera Morrison. Also tweaked some designs and made some up, plus I included Tracer, Corvis, Wildfire and Warthog (my beloved) because they don鈥檛 seem to get much recognition :(
Individual pictures and notes under the cut:

So I鈥檓 90% sure we don鈥檛 see Comet with his helmet off so I made his design pretty basic, just added some freckles and facial hair. Blessed Wolffe with grey streaks and moles. I gave Boost a tattoo that says聽鈥淧lo鈥檚 Bros鈥 like the decals painted on the 104th鈥檚 gunships. Sinker got moles but other than that, I left him as he was. I kept Tracer鈥檚 hair and gave him scars and slits through the eyebrow. Decided to deviate from Warthog鈥檚 canon design and give him a mullet, heavy freckles and scars. As we only see Wildfire looking 60, I added flame tattoos, light freckles, but kept his hairstyle and greys. He has much shorter facial hair. Corvis has no content whatsoever to base a design off, so I gave him a split-dyed undercut and many freckles.

Force Shenanigans鈩 strike again and turn various clones of the GAR and Coruscant Guard into cadets with no prior memory of being adults.
The Jedi are bewildered because somehow all commanding officers were spared of this, but at least a handful of men from every battalion has been turned into children... Children who, because they've been turned back into a stage of their lives where they haven't fully developed their senses of self and confidence just yet, act completely different from their adult versions.
Only their closest brothers now know how to handle them (provided they themselves haven't been transformed as well) and it quickly becomes a bit of a mess.
On that note, picture the following:
Cadet Waxer who's super shy and a little afraid of meeting new people. He clings to Boil, not because he recognizes his closest brother, but because the other is an older clone and he's learned to trust his ori'vode when in difficult situations.
Waxer who's got zero confidence in himself but who trusts his older vode without hesitation because that's the very first lesson a clone learns. To trust in their brothers. And maybe the vod with the funny moustache just feels safe, even if he's a grumpy-pants.
Cadets Boost and Sinker who are a little afraid of spaceships and who immediately freak out when they realize they're in a big ship in the middle of the vast expanses of space. They give Wolffe nothing but trouble because they are running and he cannot catch both of these little hellions.
Boost and Sinker who, upon realizing they're giving a Commander鈩 the runaround, decide to make it their mission to make his life a living hell. At least they've stopped fretting about space but lord if Wolffe wouldn't have preferred they hadn't...
Cadets Echo and Dogma who are both autistic and who are on opposite ends of the Uh-Oh Spectrum for the 501st, because they're all so used to both of them being mature young adults with a good handle of their emotions and who have stable routines they adere to on a daily basis.
Echo who's incredibly withdrawn and who doesn't engage verbally on his own, and who instead just repeats words spoken to him because it both soothes and grounds him now that he's somewhere he doesn't recognize. Echo who's super sensitive to food textures and who immediately refuses to eat most foods they have at hand because the texture is WRONG. Echo who sees Fives's goatee and tries to cut it off with child scissors because it's against regulations.
Dogma who acts up and screams because all these new surroundings are unfamiliar and overstimulating him. Everything is just wrong and terrible and he doesn't know or trust any of these older clones. He screams absolute bloody murder when Tup tries to touch him and only stops when Kix picks him up because medics are Safe鈩. Anyone else gets anything that's not nailed to the floor thrown at them because Dogma does not know them. Also he bit Rex at some point.
Cadet Hound who's scared shitless of animals and comes to in the Corrie Kennels. Cadet Hound who is staring up at the drooly fanged mouth of Grizzer who's been waiting patiently and worriedly by his side since he suddenly collapsed and shrunk.
Hound who screams his head off and tries to run away from Grizzer, only to be followed by the confused Massiff that basically chases him around all the way over to the Senate building, and that practically climbs all over a very shocked Fox who had just gotten comms over other Guard vode being turned into children unexpectedly.
Just... Clones getting turned back into clueless cadets that still need to do a lot of growing and learning before they fully become the people they are.
And also the brothers left as their normal selves to deal with their transformed vode'ika, getting a clear picture that some of their vode were vastly different when they were cute little cadets.

~~~~~~~~~~~
It鈥檚 been over a year since you joined your old master Plo Koon and his battalion the 104th during a particular rought battle. Since then you stuck around and were pretty integrated in the battalion and the flow of things. So far everything was going as well as it could during a war and the men took a liking to you. Well most of them at least, there was just one little exception called Commander Wolffe. You don鈥檛 know what it was about you, or what was wrong with him, but you two never had that click that you had with the others.聽 Sometimes it drove you insane having to be around him because he left you thinking about your own capability and sanity. Wolffe was harsh, sarcastic and strict, you knew it from the start but you saw him loosen up with the others, hell he even joked, but never with you. With you around he always seemed to be on edge unless he was completely smashed which only happened twice.聽 On battlefields it was the same. The sarcasm, the remarks, the unspoken and underlying judgement from him. Force it left you frustrated and it wasn鈥檛 different now. You and the wolfpack were stealthing through the woods to get on the other side of the speratist compound and shut down their energy fields and undo the jamming of the coms. But it seemed to get far more complicated than expected. The forest you were using to hide yourself wasn鈥檛 what you could call a forest anymore. They had cut down most of it to have a barren field around the compound to see enemies coming, and the other side of the forest held a cliffside.聽 The Commander and you were in the front with the pack following behind. You could feel the tension radiating off of everyone in the group, especially Wolffe. It didn鈥檛 help that everything was eerily quiet around. No animals were heard, no rustling of bushes, just the steps and occasional cracks of the group walking through. It gave you a bad feeling in the pit of your stomach. You knew it wasn鈥檛 just paranoia that having to stealth gave you.聽 With a hand motion you signalled the troopers to stop, already feeling Wolffe鈥檚聽 piercing gaze on you from under his helmet. You ignored the feeling and kept quiet, even when they asked what was wrong. You took in a deep breath and reached out with the force. A warmth rose inside you and you could feel the presence of the wolfpack around you, the trees and wildlife, the cliff going down to a river you could hear crashing in your ears. It was overwhelming but in a sense of tranquillity. Until your realized that this wasn鈥檛 the wildlife.聽 鈥淕ET DOWN!鈥 With the breath leaving you you force push them aside before diving to the ground as well. Blaster fire started raining down on the group that was scrambling to get behind cover. From what you could see it were drones covered to look like animals. No wonder you didn鈥檛 hear any animals. You looked over to see Sinker and Boost to your right hiding behind a cluster of trees and further behind them Comet hiding behind a rock. Looking to your left you expected to see Wolffe ducking for cover behind something but he was nowhere to be seen. 鈥淲olffe?!鈥 Nothing. Kriff. 鈥淪inker! Can you see where the Commander is?!鈥 The mentioned clone looked over at you before he went down to the ground as far as possible and looked forth from around the tree. Shots hit the ground right in front of him and he ducked back. 鈥淐an鈥檛 see him, General.鈥 You started cursing under your breath.聽 You took out your lightsaber and ignited it. A grey blade ignited in front of you and you reached out with the force once more to pinpoint the position of the drones. The blaster fire still came down heavily and you knew there wasn鈥檛 much time. The clones had drawn their blasters as well, ready to fight their way out of this. 鈥淏oost, Comet, Sinker! I need you to head back the way we came and get help! Our coms are still jammed! I will give you cover and search for the Commander!鈥 鈥淵ou sure, General?鈥 鈥淚 am! On three! One鈥 Two鈥︹ And with that you came forth from your hiding place and started reflecting the oncoming shots. The clones followed suit and started shooting at the drones before making their way back. It didn鈥檛 take you long to destroy all the drones and began your search for the Commander. I couldn鈥檛 have pushed him that far. It took a few moments before you found Wolffe laying on the ground with a wound on his side. 鈥淜riffin hell.鈥 You turned him over and took off his helmet, checking if he was still breathing. You were sure that if Wolffe died in some way related to your actions that he would haunt you for the rest of your life. When you heard and felt him breath you sighed in relief. Thank you Maker. Gently you shook him to try and wake him up but he didn鈥檛 move. Even with a 鈥済entle鈥 slap to the face he didn鈥檛 wake up. You couldn鈥檛 stay here with Wolffe and wait until either he woke up or the others came back. His wound needed to be taken care of and he might just have a head injury from your push. Hell you couldn鈥檛 aim to where you push people out of the way so there was only one option left, carry him back to the camp. It took you longer than you would like to admit to get Wolffe onto your shoulder and his helmet in your hands. You decided it was best to keep his helmet off to be able to check if he was still breathing while you carried him. No way in hell you would be able to get him back on your shoulders after putting him down. And so with your new bagges you made your way back to safety. Carrying too much weight on your shoulders suddenly had a new meaning.
Around two hours passed before you got back to camp and saw that they wanted to dispatch a group to get you and Wolffe before they saw you walking up with the Commander. When Plo Koon saw you he let out a laugh which caught the attention of the clones that began to stare at you open mouthed.聽 鈥淚nstead of starring, some of you could help me, you know. Wolffe is kriffin heavy.鈥 Two immediately rushed up to you and got Wolffe off your shoulders. A groan left you and you rolled back your sore and stiff shoulders.聽 You watched as they carried Wolffe away, his helmet still in your hands. You could give it back to him later when he was awake. Maybe even tease him a little for having to carry him. You couldn鈥檛 help but smile at the thought that his brothers would never let him live this down.聽 鈥淎re you alright?鈥 You looked over to see Plo Koon stand next to you. 鈥淚 guess so, but next time I will leave him in a ditch.鈥 Plo let out a chuckle before ushering you away to the medical tent as well.聽
The attack on the compound was done before Wolffe woke up again, lying in the medical tent. The soreness in your shoulders was still there, the bacta cream did little to nothing for it but that was alright. The battalion was going back to Coruscant after it so you had at least a week for it to go away.聽 As you waited for Wolffe to wake up again you looked over his helmet and his armour, patching up where he got hit. It was good as new after it. At least you thought so. As you were repainting the grey stripe you heard Wolffe shuffle in his bed. He slowly opened his eyes and the first thing he was met with was the sight of you painting over his armour. 鈥淲here am I? And what are you doing there?鈥 鈥淲ell Commander you are in the medical tent back at camp and I just repaired and repainted your armour. You're welcome.鈥 He looked confused at you, starting to sit up but stopping himself. He took a sharp breath in before settling down again. 鈥淲hat happened?鈥 鈥淲ell, we were in the forest when we got attacked by drones made to look like animals and you got hit. I carried you all the way back to camp where they patched you up. Again, you鈥檙e welcome. My shoulders still hurt.鈥 You set down the paint and his armour. Looking at him you saw a mix of emotions flash over his face. You tilted your head at him. 鈥淵ou carried me back here? All the way?鈥 鈥淥f course I did but let me tell you next time you make me carry you I will leave you in a ditch.鈥 The corner of Wolffe鈥檚 mouth twitched up. Was he smiling at you?! You pointed at his face in astonishment. 鈥淭hat is new. You never smiled at me before.鈥 鈥淚 am not smiling.鈥 鈥淵es you are!鈥 You could see him bite back a laugh and you start grinning at him. 鈥淚 knew you liked me deep down.鈥 鈥淪hut up and let me see if you did a good job on my armour.鈥 鈥淚 did!鈥 Seemed like you finally clicked.
