I was demoted. I made a decision on a call, as captain, that went against what my chief had ordered. So, insubordination. That is the official reason, yes. What was the unofficial reason? You know, I would say, unofficially, it was sexism. Possibly homophobia. The chief was threatened by me. And then the new chief, the female chief, had the opportunity to correct the mistake, but she declined, because she's doing it just like the boys did, which isn't really progress at all. It's just the same thing.

picture this: the entire team is captured, outnumbered and outmuscled, there are three people holding the strongest member down. the leader is forced onto their knees in front of the enemy leader, who ponders who to break first.
"... the youngest."
youngest's face blanches white as they meet eyes with whumper
leader and the eldest team members, who considered themselves somewhat of youngest's parental figures, lunge forward against their restraints, hurling curses and threats at whumper as they approach youngest like a predator cornering a small animal
"you leave them alone!"
"... the girl."
over the rest of the team's outrage, leader turns out to be the most protective, cursing profusely without regard for the consequences
their previous image of being "the composed one" flying out the window with every word they spit in their blind fury
"touch her, and i will be the last thing you ever see."
"... the leader."
more meaningful if leader and whumper are acquainted with each other
their most protective teammates try to protest, offering themselves up for torture instead, but leader orders them to stand down with gritted teeth or a sad smile
"what a good role model you are, [title]. wanna show your team how it's done? you should lead by example, after all." — whumper, probably
bonus: whumper forcing youngest to torture leader
works especially well if youngest is usually the rowdy one/most troublesome according to leader
a weapon is placed in youngest's grip, heavy in their hands, guided to point at leader's chest
whumper closes their hands over youngest's, tightening their hold on the weapon as the youngest sobs, terrified out of their mind as whumper hushes them in mock soothing
“sh, sh, sh, don’t cry now… your [title]’s gonna have to pay for every teardrop, you know.”
leader reassures youngest with the softest voice they can muster:
"hey. hey, look at me. it's okay. you're gonna be okay. do as whumper says."

honestly if eddie has a key to buck’s apartment and taylor has a key to buck’s apartment, there was a major missed opportunity where they both get to buck’s at the same time after buck told the 118 that he felt like taylor was going to break up with him. just imagine eddie going over to surprise buck and hang out with him so he can forget about the taylor situation, but he sees taylor when he arrives at the door. he has his key in his hand and taylor has her key in her hand, and eddie says “oh you must be here to pick up the rest of your stuff !” and taylor visibility starts to freak out and says “buck knows? that i’m going to oklahoma?” and eddie is freaking overjoyed but also kind of confused because wtf buck didn’t say anything about oklahoma so he just yells “YOU’RE MOVING TO OKLAHOMA???? THANK GOD” and now taylor’s confused because if buck doesn’t know that she’s here to get stuff for her trip, then why else would she be picking up stuff from his apartment??? so she just says “no i’m not moving to oklahoma, i’m going there for the weekend and need a few things. what are you doing here?” and eddie is realizing that this was the WORST time to come over because 1) taylor isn’t breaking up with buck and 2) she’s apparently going to oklahoma and didn’t tell him, so eddie scratches his head with buck’s stupid apartment key and blurts out “the plants. i’m here for the plants. to water them. buck has a lot of plants on his balcony, yknow??? SOMEONE needs to water them.” and then a really intense staring contest happens because none of them want to make the first move to use their key to open the door to buck’s apartment BUT THEN HERE COMES BUCK only to find his girlfriend and best friend in the craziest stand off he has ever seen in his life. buck is like “what are you guys doing out here?” and goes for his pocket to reach for his key BUT ALAS. he forgot it. taylor and eddie both volunteer to unlock the door BUT GUESS WHO UNLOCKS IT FIRST??? MR DIAZ HIMSELF YALL. true love is real and it’s stored in the apartment key
I think one of the greatest qualities of inej ghafa are not her badass knife wielding skills or the fact that she knows her worth (although these are fucking fantastic and I wish we all learnt from her) but her faith. the faith she has in herself. in rising above everything that tried to put her down. the faith she has in the world. this is a girl who has seen the worst of it and she still believes in good, in people and their capability of love and kindness. after all the tragedy in her life she still has faith in her saints. and it's not that she's naive she just actively chooses to believe in goodness.
inej ghafa is a true marvel and she has my whole heart
Just Sambucky kissing each other soft and slow against the kitchen counter, Bucky cupping Sams jaw, sam hand on Bucky waist while abba played in the background. the reason for this kiss? Sam is pretty
