Michael is absolutely shaped like a teddy bear and it’s phenomenal. You’re phenomenal for pointing that out.
I have been absolutely drawn in by potential pack/mate dynamics with Alpha Michael, Alpha Dan and Omega Max (maybe Omega Lando). The possibilities are endless and I love it. If you were so inclined to bless us with more tidbits.
Michael really is just a teddy bear xjdjd❤❤
Honestly the little Maxiel Pack gives me life🥺 Maxiel itself is already great but just Michael being the softest best friend who cares so much about the both of them just adds so much! The both of them would trust him with their lives (and eventually also with Lando) and he is just the calm presence that can shake them out of their stubbornness!
I'll definitely write more about them at some point 🥺🥺
Alpha!Michael and Omega!Lando is just so cute and fluffy snsnnsnwnenwhebwbs
Truly! Michael is just so calm and patient and it just compliments Lando's personality so well🥺 Lando really deserves a calm Alpha that doesn't mind taking things slow, and someone who understands if Lando gets stressed or anxious about something 🥺
Bonus points cos it makes the little Maxiel Pack even cuter✊😔
Imagine Max and Micheal looking around for Daniel praying he's not doing anything stupid
But he just took Lando out for ice cream
Jsjsjs Michael and Max panicking cos they can't find Daniel, and Dan and Lando are just sitting on a bench somewhere eating the biggest ice creams they could find because the Paddock had been crowded and had made Lando uncomfortable, so Dan took him out🥺
Max and Michael want to be upset but the ice creams are so big they all get to share them hshs
Could you talk a little more about how mating bonds in pack verse work? In one of your fics (when Dan snapped at Lando), Max mentioned he could feel Dan’s guilt through their bond so that got me wondering — why couldn’t Dan sense it when Max was hurting after losing his pup (or was he just being stupid)? And is it just emotions mates can sense through their bond or also physical pain?
The way I see it, the bonds are quite a complicated thing. Yes they can feel each other's emotions but its not always noticeable or easy to distinguish from their own emotions.
For example in the fic where Dan snapped at Lando, Max is still upset with Dan when he explains he can feel his pain to Lando, but he has also already cooled down more from his initial rage at his Mate for hurting their pup.
In Ava, Dan lashes out quite badly at Max and stays angry for a relatively long time, up until the point where Charles, Lewis and Seb take Max to the hospital (and Max is visibly distraught). So in that case, Dan was so in his own feelings that he didn't notice Max's, or only noticed them when it was too late.
I hope that make sense! It basically just depends on the situation and how much they want to feel the other if they sense the emotions in the bond or not!
Someone mentioned Max being distant with other drivers/a bit uptight, and honestly that’s one the reasons why I like Maxiel so much. You can actually see how Daniel made him relax and loosen up. We rarely see Max behaving around other drivers the same way he did with Daniel. He definitely had a certain influence on Max.
Shipping matter aside, it’s almost like a having a big brother who understands you and whom you look up to a lot.
Totally agree. Max joined Red Bull at such a young age and with so much pressure on his shoulders. Everyone acknowledges he was a lot more short-tempered and rash in those first couple of years, but I think the weight placed on him also made it harder for him to relate and befriend others. I can only imagine how competitive he was in those days.
Dan, on the other hand, is so much more easy going. He’s still just as competitive as Max, but much better at compartmentalizing things thanks to his age, experience and upbringing. For me there’s no denying Daniel played a big role in Max’s life at a very formative point and I think Max at least is aware of this. Daniel, I think he knows it too, but in interviews he sounds a little more insecure, like he’s not quite sure what his role in Max’s life is now that they’re no longer teammates.
On that note, I also believe Max has had an impact in Daniel’s life. I think MAx’s talent and dedication definitely shifted things in perspective for Daniel in regards to what he wants and how much he’s willing to fight for it.
I can’t believe I’ve actually written something !!! Come check it out if you want 🤍
I Hide Myself Within My Flower
Since the beginning, every child is born with a nest of blossoms just over their heart and one on their left wrist that mirrors it; people call them heart flowers, and they symbolise one person’s true essence.
i came up with a fic idea yesterday for max/daniel haunted housestory and not to gass myself up, but i think it might be my best one yet. daniel and max running from monsters together? refusing to let go of one another even though one is injured and slowing down the other? max beating the living shit out of an evil spirit with a frying pan? iconic and special.
