Oh, this scene right here! Marc being a protective husband and being jealous as fuck and threatened by his own alter about his wife.
"Are you in love with my wife?!"
And then the beautiful intimidating threat.
"I'll throw us off a cliff!!!"
And then despite the clear threat baby Steven goes and kisses Layla after telling her that Marc does care for her and isn't the grandest of assholes. This sweet bastard. Then of course, Marc exhibits his skill of how to be a TWAT.👇
By making Steven punch himself while he was still sporting a goofy as hell smile over his kiss with Layla. 👀This shit was the funniest part to me in this episode.🤣
Here, how Steven comforts Layla about her father and how she beams again at Steven for making her feel better.
Layla and Steven had amazing interactions throught the episode. The part where Steven went nerdy mode and explaining the Eye of Horus and relevancy of other senses to gods and all and Layla looked slyly at Steven, impressed of course. Almost like she found a nerdy best friend, awwww! And the part where Steven was ranting and then realised how quiet Layla was being and straight up went like....👇
Although I did feel very bad in this scene for Marc when Layla confronted him. I mean when the whole story came to light of how he almost died saving her father and he'd have died if khonshu hadn't chosen him to be his avatar.
Ofcourse, the tomb priest zombie.
"What the bloody hell's a Heka?"
Well, Steven. You killed one.
I cracked up at his anxiety, politely of course. He KILLED a fucking Egyptian mummy or shit and he's never done shit like this before. He's both horrified and amazed at hell at his actions and his luck. Probably thinking, "How the hell I even did that?!", meanwhile chanting, "I squished it. I squished it."
This scene was bloody funny. At first they both literally encounter a fucking hippo dressed as a Pharaoh? And then it speaks in the most fucking unexpected voice- of a female?! And these two are suddenly screaming because they definitely DID NOT EXPECT THIS and so it's SOMEHOW SEEMING MORE SCARY. Oscar Issac has mastered the screaming scenes LOL. And also the difference in both of their hand movements while they scream? Steven has a defensive pose like "Fuck, don't come at me?!". Meanwhile Marc is like, "Bitch what?!!"
And the part where they find a third coffin? But ignore it? Baby Jake?!!
And also the concept they used that Alexander the great was the last Avatar of Ammit. And how they turned the concept of his lost tomb to an awesome part of the episode.
I really enjoy your the jock side drabbles omf they are so cute/funny/sweet. Please keep doing them!
My prompt: (I assume the whole school knows they are dating right?) Sunghoon getting jealous/angry over y/n and Gyu interacting. (Boy needs a beating but he is my Txt bias 😭)
lol beomgyu is a cocky mf but honestly i don't think he'd dare to just come up and talk to her after what sunghoon said but i'll see what i can do 🤣
warning; mr park s is jealous 😏 + crack. 0.6k words.
"can you be patient?! i need to do my assignment with sunoo in the library! i'll come see you after okay?"
"nooooo i want to see you right now!" your boyfriend whines like a child on the other end of the phone call, dragging out each of his words, "you can do your assignment later! come over to my practice nowwwwww! jay won't let me leave practice anymore because of last time."
"that's your fault, shouldn't have called me into the locker rooms to- AHH-" your words are cut off by someone bumping into you real hard as you turned the corner in the corridor, immediately knocking you to the ground from impact.
your phone flings to who knows where but your butt and hands hurt too much from crashing onto the hard floor to care.
"ow..." you wince in pain and look down at your palms that were now slightly red. the person who bumped into you quickly crouches down in front of you and takes a hold of your hand, inspecting it over and softly blowing onto your skin. your mouth hangs dry at the sight of beomgyu before you, the thought of your interaction with him last week immediately flooding your mind. when he took you to taehyun's house...
you wouldn't say you were scared of beomgyu but he definitely made you feel uneasy.
"shit are you okay pretty one? i'm sorry i didn't see you," he says, his hands still holding yours, "poor thing, that must've hurt."
"a little but it's not your fault, i wasn't looking either," you say with an awkward chuckle. it was the first time you've spoken to him since that day, not like you wanted to talk to him, neither did your boyfriend.
the boy smiles at you, his eyes lingering around your lips for a tad too long. you gasp when his hands suddenly grab onto your waist without warning, pulling your body to stand up with such ease. you quietly mutter a thank you but he doesn't let you go...
"so you're dating sunghoon now? is that true?"
"too bad, we could've been something."
"get your fucking hands off of her!" your boyfriend suddenly appears beside you, his hands pushing at beomgyu's chest so hard that you almost go flying as well from the impact.
sunghoon immediately wraps his arm protectively around you, pulling you into his side as he glared at his team mate. afraid that he'd cause a scene, you cling onto your boyfriend's jersey to try and calm him down.
"sunghoon calm down, beomgyu was just helping me up," you say while patting the fuming jock's chest.
"he doesn't need to touch your waist to help you up," sunghoon spits back, eyes still staring daggers, "you're a fucking creep choi."
"whatever park. you should work on your jealousy... because you look a little crazy right now," beomgyu laughs to himself and waves at you before walking off down the hallway, leaving you behind with your boyfriend who looked like he was about to explode.
"baby... calm down, he really was just helping me up," you reassure the jock and wrap your arms around him for a hug, "sunghoon come on..."
hearing your soft voice calmed the jock down quite a bit. he takes a deep breath and looks down at you, a smile almost immediately forming on his lips because of how cute and small you looked in his arms.
"that's it. i've decided. i will now follow you no matter where you go so shit like this won't happen again," he says, his arms that were already around you tightening even more, almost suffocating you, "i cannot let my beautiful girlfriend roam freely when there are creeps like fucking beomgyu lerking around."
Your boyfriend has a bit of a short fuse… but it just works out in its favor for you.

Okay - it wasn’t necessarily your intention to grind up on somebody else in the club.
You had gone out to celebrate your promotion at work with a couple of friends, and all of your boyfriends had tagged along. The night started off great with a round of shots and hilarious encounters from your school days. Everyone was bonding over nostalgic memories and liquor-painted breaths when your homegirl pulled you out onto the dancefloor. She easily convinced you to join; it had been a while since you went out on the town like this.
Clubbing isn’t really your boyfriend’s scene of choice, he’s always been more of a homebody. He’s got roughly eight years on you, and it vividly shows in his calm, mature demeanor compared to your wild, free-spirited one. It’s funny how you two came to be, meeting by chance when he spilled coffee all over your beloved white dress shirt with flower-patterned lace on the sleeves. Yeah, he still hasn’t heard the end of it, and it’s been two years already.
He’s your beloved boyfriend of two years… and there are so many layers of him to discover and explore. Like his limitations for example.
Baekhyun had had a rough day at the office, you could tell from the moment he stepped into your shared apartment. The sour expression on his face and prominent bags under his eyes had spoken volumes alone. You walked over to him with a glass of wine, took his coat, and asked if he wanted a hug. If he accepted, you’d embrace him with open arms. If he declined, you’d nod and go back to doing what you were doing. It was cool; sometimes he needed space and sometimes he needed you.
Things haven’t always been that easy with Baekhyun, sometimes you’d crack a bad joke or he’d underestimate you because of your age and all hell would break loose. Whenever he’d belittle you in an argument, you’d rebel. Whenever you nagged at him about his “old” age, he’d yell. It was always a push and pull of pride and attitude until one day you woke and decided to say, ‘fuck it, man. I just want you.’ Because all you ever wanted was to love him and for him to love you.
So when Baekhyun lightly shook his head, you handed him the wine glass and pressed a kiss to his cheek, completely forgetting the fact that you were wearing makeup until you pulled back and saw the red lipstick mark you left on his face. While you flusteredly apologized he had regained that fond sparkle in his eyes before they drifted down to your outfit and darkened entirely. When his eyes dragged back up to meet yours, the ravenous look in them alone was enough to make you weak in the knees, but you smiled and walked back to the living room to let him do his thing.
You heard the familiar sounds of him moving around your home while waiting for the time to pass, hesitating if you should go tell him your plans for the night or just send him a quick text. But knowing him and his habit of turning off his phone as soon as he gets home from work, you made your way to your shared bedroom and told him that you were going out for a while. You never thought that he’d join you, especially on a night like this. As soon as you had told him where you were going, he changed his oversized hoodie for an outfit that set your wild heart on fire.
Yeah, looking back on it maybe you should have stayed in. Who knew a night out for fun would turn into a royal pain for your ass - literally.
You’re three shots in, tipsy enough to laugh at your friend’s every word, and dancing together under the heat of a dozen other bodies. It takes you two seconds to lock eyes with Baekhyun across the room and way too long for you to realize that the man holding your hips isn’t yours. Based on the expression on his face that you can barely make out through the flashes of neon lights, you know you fucked up. Baekhyun is in front of you in a blink of an eye.
“Hey, bae,” you smile weakly, wrapping your arms around his neck and lightly slipping your fingers into his hair. “Wanna dance?” At his lack of response, your eyes warily drift to his. Oh, you’re fucked. Not even the dim lights can hide the look of utter rage written across his face. You are more than fucked, but… how fucked are you?
“We’re going home.” He declares lowly, staring right into your eyes. That wasn’t a request; that was an order. Your breath hitches when he wraps his arms snugly around your waist, holding your body flush against him. You look up at him for a moment, cupping his cheek as his jaw clenches and running your hand down his chest to rest over his beating heart. You stare right back into those fury-filled eyes before leaning in for a kiss.
Baekhyun’s mouth remains unmoving against yours, and you start to pull back, feeling hurt bud in your chest until he swiftly leans back in, cupping your face in his hand and swallowing your gasp. He takes advantage of your parted lips, licking the seam of your lips before slipping his tongue into your mouth, exploring your wet cavern. The way his tongue wraps around and harshly sucks on yours reminds you of the other day when his head was tucked between your thighs with your legs over his shoulders. Suddenly, the dancefloor is way too public for your passion-filled display.
Your mouth stops moving with his and Baekhyun immediately takes notice. He leans back to meet your eyes again, a hint of a smirk on his lips. Carefully noting your expression, he wraps his hand around your wrist and leads you off of the dancefloor and out of the club. Not even the crisp October air can cool you down when you exit the door, leaving your partying friends behind without a care in the world. The fire in Baekhyun’s eyes promises a thrilling after-party, and you can’t wait to find out what’s in store.
The ride back to your home is silent, nothing but an occasional car driving by and the sound of Baekhyun’s heavy breathing. It gets to the point where you work up the courage to look over at him to find out what the problem is only to notice the obvious situation in his tight black jeans. He steers the Audi confidently with one hand while you contemplate leaning over to help him with that.
“Don’t even think about it.” He speaks up, smacking your hand away. “You’ve broken enough rules tonight.”
Your face heats up as you squeeze your thighs together, way too affected by the gruff tone of his voice. His voice has dropped a few octaves lower, the low tone you dream about. The unconcealed lust you love to hear when he tingles your ear at night with his groans.
“If you leave a mess in my car,” he continues, all too aware of the effect he has on you. “You’re licking it up.”
You snap your head around to face him with wide eyes, making an affronted noise in your throat. The hell? You scoff at his audacity, feeling your blood boil. “I’m your girlfriend not your fucking dog, Baekhyun.”
“Give me your panties.” He doesn’t even spare you a glance and holds out his hand, snapping his fingers when you don’t react.
You scoff again, crossing your arms and turning away. Last time you checked, dancing with someone else didn’t mean riding their dick, and with the way things are going Baekhyun will be lucky if you ride his.
“Babygirl,” he utters lowly, his patience wearing thin. “Don’t make me repeat myself.” He looks over at you when he stops at a red light, the red glare reflected onto the windshield casting him in a lethal glow. Your heartbeat quickens as goosebumps cover your skin under his heavy stare. His neatly parted black hair and eyeliner-lined eyes have more power over you than you’ll ever admit.
Biting your lip, you wiggle your lace underwear off of your hips, grateful for choosing to go with a short skirt tonight. Who knows what you’d do if you were wearing pants instead. You ball them up and drop them into Baekhyun’s waiting hand, feeling your face burn. If you blush any harder you swear you’ll burst flames, but nothing prepares you for what he does next.
Baekhyun doesn’t break eye contact for a second and lifts your underwear up to his face, licking the crotch of your panties, tasting your essence. “Mmm,” he moans, closing his hooded eyes for a moment before dragging them back to yours. “Always so sweet for me.”
Your jaw is practically on the floor while he pulls off of the curb when the light turns green. You sit there in shock, not sure if you’re madder at him or yourself for how aroused you are, shuffling uncomfortably at the throbbing between your legs. Just when you are settled in the best way possible to not let your arousal drip onto his seats, you feel a warm hand on your thigh. You gulp as Baekhyun slides it further up, watching him navigate you both through the streets with ease out of the corner of your eye.
The look in Baekhyun’s eyes when he faces you at a stop sign is clear. “Spread.”
“I-,” you stutter, at a loss for words. “But your-” you throw your head back when he smacks you right between your legs, the slap resounding around the small space in the car, making your core throb as he soothingly rubs the affected skin.
“Let’s try this again.” He grips your thigh firmly, pulling it closer to him. “Spread your pretty legs.”
You bite harshly on your bottom lip, doing as he says, feeling mortified as you notice your arousal dripping onto his leather seats. His hand slips between your legs before you can say anything.
“Good girl,” he hums over your moan, running his fingers through your folds. “So wet. Do you hear that, baby?” He speeds up his fingers, rubbing them around your entrance, the loud noises of your slick filling the space of the car. “Do you hear how wet you are for me?”
“Y-yes,” you whimper, your head falling back against the passenger seat as he slides his middle finger inside of you, pressing his thumb to your clit. “Fuck.” You feel the car start moving again while Baekhyun slips another finger into your core, stretching your walls.
“Good,” his voice dips, sounding affected as well by your breathy moans. “Keep those legs open for me.”
With the way his digits are pummeling your core, you have no complaints. You only spread your legs as wide as the space around you will allow, placing your foot on the car door for leverage. You’ll worry about Baekhyun nagging you for it later; you’re too busy having your head spin while fucking yourself on his fingers.
“Look at you,” he murmurs over your loud moans, his jaw ticking as you clench frantically around him. “So eager for my fingers in your pussy, baby. Are you close?”
Your head rolls onto your shoulder when he speeds up, palming your clit with his hand and crooking up his fingers. “Fuck,” you whisper, your thighs quivering. “Fuck! Yes yes yes!” A tight coil builds in your stomach. You squeeze your eyes shut, chasing it relentlessly - until he pulls his fingers out.
You open your eyes, panting heavily while Baekhyun steps out of the car. It takes you a few seconds to recognize your apartment complex before he opens your door, holding out his hand to you with a ghost of a smile. You need a moment to gather yourself - because even while he’s angry at you, with his slit eyebrow and the lacey fabric of your underwear poking out of the pocket of his jeans, his love for you as he helps you step out of the car speaks volumes.
Baekhyun interlocks his fingers with yours. The moment both of your feet touch the ground, he slips his wet fingers into his mouth, his eyes fluttering shut with a low moan. You gulp, your shaky knees neatly buckling under you. He rests his hand on your lower back, his fingertips brushing over the curve of your ass while he leads you into the building. The walk past the security guard in the lobby and the elevator ride up to your floor has you clutching onto his camouflage jacket, shuffling on your feet constantly. When you make it inside of your apartment, Baekhyun heads straight for the bedroom.
“Baek,” you sigh, neatly setting both your shoes aside before following after him. Nervous butterflies flutter in your stomach when you try to guess what could be awaiting you in your room.
He shrugs off his jacket while you’re stepping through the door, revealing his broad shoulders and flexing back muscles through his t-shirt. Baekhyun turns around to look at you, licking his lips before pointing at the floor in front of the foot of your bed. “Kneel.”
“Seriously?” you raise a brow, crossing your arms and leaning against the doorframe no matter how much you ache between your legs at the sight of him. You feel giddy at the sight of frustration and impatience in his dark brown eyes. “Can we talk about this? I get that you had a long day and can only guess how things looked earlier, but I-”
Baekhyun crosses the room to reach you in three strides, pulling you close and crashing his lips to yours. The next thing you know your back is pressed against the wall. Baekhyun kisses you with an urgency that leaves you breathless and the feeling of his erection brushing against your stomach has that persistent throb building up in your core all over again.
He pulls back after a while, his warm breath fanning over your kiss-swollen lips. “Color?” he asks lowly, the calm before the storm.
You look into his dark eyes for a moment, at his clenched jaw and his black eyeliner lined orbs. “Green,” you whisper against his lips, daring for one more kiss before going to kneel in front of the bed. Feeling his eyes on you, you make a show out of swaying your hips, getting down onto your knees with as much grace as you can possess. You carefully settle back on your heels, your heart racing in anticipation while Baekhyun moves around the room, straining to hear what he’s doing. You hear a drawer shut before he walks in front of you, the objects in his hands make your breath hitch.
One of his silk ties dangles precariously from his fingertips, but that isn’t what catches your full attention. It’s the obsidian black riding crop held in his dominant hand. Memories of the last time he used it flashes through your mind. You squeeze your thighs together, gulping at his bulge right in front of you and under his predatory stare. You know you’re in for a long night.
“Color?” he asks again, gently cupping your cheek in his hand. You look up at him, leaning into his touch and pulling your arms behind your back. “Green.”
Baekhyun’s lips curl up, a mix between a smile and a smirk while he leans down to tie your hands behind your back, tight enough to keep you restrained, yet loose enough for you to move them. He tugs firmly on the knot, checking his handiwork before sitting on the edge of the bed.
“Someone is excited,” he muses, tilting his head, man-spreading his legs on either side of you. “When you said you were going out tonight I didn’t expect you to be all up on somebody else.” Baekhyun looks you over slowly, his dark eyes running over your crop top and tight mini skirt. “Did you enjoy yourself, baby?” he murmurs, tangling his fingers in your hair. “Hmm? Did you enjoy grinding your ass on someone else’s dick all night?”
All you can do is gulp, clasping your hands tightly together, feeling the resistance of your bound wrists while staring straight ahead. Baekhyun yanks your head back, making you hiss.
“My eyes,” he utters lowly, staring right into your eyes with his stormy ones, “are up here. Were you even listening?”
“Y-yes,” you stammer, face flushed at being caught staring at the bulge in his jeans, continuing when he tugs on your hair again, “sir.”
“Cock hungry whore can’t even think straight.” Baekhyun chuckles, shaking his head as your cheeks burn. He fixes you with a heated stare, caressing the back of your head with a hum. “Come here.”
You gulp when he leans back, already knowing what’s awaiting you when he pats his lap. You slowly stand up on wobbly legs, pressing your knee onto the bed before he speaks up again.
“Since my little whore wants to be a cock tease,” he murmurs, resting a hand on the back of your thigh, caressing your heated skin as you partially straddle him. “I think you’ve forgotten who you belong to.”
You straighten up, bristling at the accusation, “I haven’t-”
The swat of Baekhyun’s hand landing on your ass echoes across the room. “Lay across my lap now.” His eyes hold no room for discussion. You shuffle your way onto his lap, meekily resting your cheek on the sheets. He’s only hit you once and your ass is already burning.
“Good girl,” he hums, running his hand up the back of your thigh and pushing your skirt out of the way. “Here’s what’s going to happen, baby,” he starts while caressing your skin, making you clench your thighs together when his fingertips brush between your legs. “I’m going to spank you and you’re going to count every single one. Got it?”
“If you don’t,” he continues over you as you feel the ghost of leathery fabric brush over your leg, “I’m going to use this until your pretty ass is raw and red. Understood?”
You gulp down any smart replies, already well aware how well that worked out for you the last time he pulled out the riding crop. You couldn’t sit normally for a week, and at the rate you’re going right now, you’ll be lucky to have trouble sitting for a few days. “Y-yes, sir,” you whisper, bracing yourself for impact.
“Good girl,” Baekhyun hums, blatantly pleased. He caresses your ass for a while, groping and massaging your skin until you relax. The moment you let out a soft moan, you jolt up with a loud gasp when his hand comes down onto your right asscheek. You look up at him as he massages the red skin and he raises a brow, looking at you expectantly. “O-one,” you breathe, knowing it’s the first of many others.
Baekhyun’s hand comes down on you again and again, alternating between both your ass cheeks as you jump at every single one. The power he puts behind each smack on your ass grows more intense, bringing tears to your eyes when you’ve counted past ten.
Your eyes snap open. “I-” you look up at Baekhyun, at a loss for words. You can’t remember the last number you counted. As a smug smirk forms on his face, you look down, sealing your fate. “I-I don’t know.”
Baekhyun coos, rubbing your ass while your face burns brighter than your red skin. “My little slut was too busy enjoying herself, hmm?” He swipes a finger between your folds, making you gasp. “Too busy soaking my jeans to do what I told her to.”
There’s nothing you can say, really, it’s the truth. You couldn’t tell him if it was the 20th one or the 50th if you wanted to. When things are like this with Baekhyun, with each spank he lays on you, with each word he utters while imprinting his red handprint on your skin, you fall into a state of mind where few things can reach you. You surrender fully to his power over you and all you can think about is him, his touch and the endless bounds of pleasure and pain that he can give you. If it’s Baekhyun, you know you’re going to heaven and hell all in one.
A whoosh echoes past your ear before you feel a powerful sting on your ass, right in the spot you sit on. You yelp when the riding crop cracks through the air again, clenching your fists and baring your teeth. Baekhyun rests a hand on the back of your thigh, holding you still every time you try to move away, trying to direct the hits to land anywhere but there.
“The more you move,” he murmurs, his voice deeper than ever before while he lightly rubs his hand over the pulsing skin, making you whimper as tears slip from your eyes, “the more you’ll get. You know the rules, baby.”
Yeah, you know the rules and you’re two seconds away from breaking free and swatting at his ass. As if reading your mind, Baekhyun’s hand slips back between your legs, pressing against your clit.
“Just a few more, baby,” he mumbles, rubbing your ass and pressing a kiss to the top of your head. “Do you remember your safeword?”
You turn your head to look up at him with clenched teeth and teary eyes, gritting out, “cucumber.”
Baekhyun’s smile fades, the fond sparkle in his eyes turning to something darker while a sadistic smirk forms on his face. “Good.” He cracks the crop onto your ass again and you only grind your teeth, barely flinching at the rest of the whips he lands on your burning skin.
“Good girl,” he cups your cheek when more silent tears fall from your eyes, shushing your muffled sobs while gently caressing your throbbing skin. “You did so well. So good for me.”
You close your eyes, leaning into his touch for a while longer. Baekhyun brushes away your tears until your cries become soft sniffles.
“My brave girl, you did so well,” he purrs, his words shooting right between your legs as you arch your back, pressing yourself against his wandering hand. “You deserve a reward.” He hums, letting go of you, setting the crop aside as you whine at the loss of his touch. Baekhyun chuckles, lightly tapping your thigh. “Kneel for me, baby.”
“Yes, sir.” You slowly open your eyes, moving to stand up as best as you can with your hands behind your back before kneeling down in front of him again. The sharp spark of pain you feel when you rest back on your heels makes you jump, hissing loudly until you notice Baekhyun’s hands rubbing over his jeans. His slender fingers run over his bulge at a languid pace, driving you mad the longer you watch him palm himself through his jeans.
“Since you’ve been so good,” he muses, tilting his head, his long black hair falling into his eyes. “I think you’ve waited enough, hmm?”
“Yes, sir,” you immediately reply, licking your dry lips when he stands up in front of you.
Baekhyun tangles his fingers back into your hair. “Unzip my jeans.” He commands, staring down at you with those dark eyes. You blink up at him owlishly in confusion, wondering how he expects you to do that when your hands- oh. Your face flushes all over again under his smug grin.
You carefully shuffle closer on your knees, pressing your face against his bulge while unzipping his jeans with your teeth. The way he moans and tightens his grip on your hair makes you pant against his twitching length, biting your lip to hide your smile. You bite onto his boxers, pulling them down and setting his cock free. His cock springs up, brushing against your cheek as it rests against his stomach, precum already leaking from his tip. You pant for breath, nuzzling your face against it and leaning in to suck on the tip.
Baekhyun tsks, gripping tighter onto your hair, halting your movements. “Did I say you could do that?”
“No, sir,” you mumble with big eyes, licking your lips. You know you shouldn’t move until he tells you, but you can’t resist sticking out your tongue, his salty taste bursting on your taste buds as you lick him off of your lips.
Baekhyun slaps your breast as a warning, holding you in place. “Patience, little one,” he warns, his voice lowered to a husky tone that you only hear when you’re like this. On your knees with him standing over you, with his narrowed eyes and heaving chest. To hell with it. You lean forward again to suck his head between your lips.
The slap Baekhyun lands on your cheek is instant, making your mouth fall open, his tip brushing your bottom lip as he slaps you two more times in quick session, gripping your jaw in his hand.
“Since you want to be an impatient cock hungry whore,” he all but growls out, nostrils flared in frustration while the veins in his neck pop out. “Who am I to deny you what you want?”
“Please,” you whimper, teary eyed while looking up at him.
Baekhyun leans down, spitting into your mouth, tightening his grip on your jaw as you moan wantonly. “Open.” He demands, taking hold of his dick and pressing it against your lips.
You quickly swallow and lick your lips, tasting a mixture of his minty taste, your tears and his precum before opening your mouth. Baekhyun jerks his hips, shoving his cock down your throat without a warning, holding you against him as you choke, your nose pressed to his skin.
“Shut up, whore,” he growls over your muffled whimpers, pressing his cock further down your throat. “I know you can take it.”
Your eyes flutter shut, your throat spasming around him as your body begs for air, your whole body jerking against him until he pulls you off by your hair.
“Are you going to listen?” he asks while you cough loudly, gasping for air. “Or do I have to use that slutty hole of yours until you obey?”
“I-I’m sorry, sir,” you gasp out, your voice hoarse and throat sore. You wish your hands weren’t bound, you’d clutch onto his legs if you could, and by the look on his face, you can tell he already knows. “I won’t do it again,” your breath hitches when he rubs the back of your head, nearly purring at the way he lightly scratches your scalp while the impact of his slaps and spanks burn on your heated skin. “I’ll be good,” you murmur, resting your throbbing cheek against his thigh.
“Good girl.” Baekhyun hums, running his fingers through your hair and down your jaw. You shiver at his touch, blinking sluggishly while waiting for his next order. The taste of him on the back of your tongue has you excited for more. “What do you want, baby?” he asks you, that knowing little smirk on his kiss-swollen lips.
“I want your…” you swallow, big-eyed as he continues running his fingers through your hair. “I want your cum, please,” you plead, your eyes flickering up to him. “Please feed me your cum, sir.”
“How cute,” Baekhyun chuckles, brushing a tear from your eye. You can’t imagine how your face must look right now. Red-cheeked, tear-stained, dark streaks of mascara, and your own spit and his precum smeared all over your mouth. “Come here, baby,” he murmurs, smug as ever while pressing his cock back to your lips. “Open your pretty mouth. Let me feed you my cum.”
You open your mouth way too willingly, but you don’t care. It’s worth the groan he lets out when he slides back into your mouth, resting heavily on your tongue.
“So eager,” he chuckles, tapping his fingers against his bulge in your cheek. “So ready to take my cock, baby. Will you take it down your throat? Let me stretch out your slutty hole for my cock only?” He smirks down at you when you nod, brushing the back of his fingers against your cheek. “Good girl,” he breathes, suddenly breathless when you lave your tongue on the underside of his cock, tightening your lips around him. “Open wide.”
You take a deep breath and relax your jaw as Baekhyun pushes his hips forward, his cock touching the back of your throat. He moans when you choke again.
“Tsk.” He shakes his head, wet strands of his hair sticking to his forehead. “You’re already choking on just the tip, baby? Is my big cock too much for your tiny throat?” He laughs at how hard you shake your head, staring up at him with watery eyes. “I guess I’ll just have to shove it in, hmm?” he peers down at you with a dark smirk. “Use that pretty little throat until you can’t talk?”
God, you can’t help but nod your head, clenching your thighs together when you feel your arousal drip down to the floor. Another mess for him to find later, but you don’t mind. Not when it’s him.
Baekhyun readjusts his grip on your hair, staring down at you for a moment. “Clap for me, baby?” He smiles when you clap your hands together, the silk tie tied properly enough to allow you an escape while your mouth is... busy. “Good,” he breathes, pulling you down onto his cock in one go. You’re grateful you’ve covered your teeth in time before he shoved himself all the way in, his cock twitching in your throat.
“God,” Baekhyun groans, throwing his head back while tears sting your eyes. He holds you there for a moment until black dots start to cloud your vision. His eyes fall back down to meet yours, a dangerous smirk on his lips. “Such a good little cock slut,” he mutters, holding you for longer until you furrow your brows, quickly pulling you back until only his tip rests in your mouth. “Taking everything I give her like the good whore you are.”
You close your mouth for a few moments to catch your breath and Baekhyun slaps his cock against your lips, holding it up while pressing you down to suck on his balls. You mouth at them, taking one into your mouth and rolling it around your tongue while he moans, stroking his cock.
“Fuck,” he quickly pulls his hips back to press his cock against your lips again, sliding into your mouth. “So tight and warm,” he moans, grunting when you purposely tighten your throat around him. “I don’t know what I love more,” he breathes, fucking hard into your throat. “Your little throat or that wet pussy of yours.”
You moan, hollowing your cheeks and flicking his tip with your tongue just to hear him groan, his cock twitching more in your mouth by the minute.
“I’m gonna come, baby,” he pants, moaning lowly as you meet his every thrust, the wet squelch of you choking and gagging on his cock echoing across the four walls. “Do you want it? You want me to come down your throat?”
You nod frantically, squeezing your eyes shut when he thrusts even faster, feeling your jaw ache as he rams his twitching cock down your sore throat. His cock twitches one, two more times, and suddenly he’s pulling out, his cum shooting out onto your face. Tongue, cheeks, chin, and dribbling down your neck onto your shirt.
“Sluts like you don’t deserve my cum.” He chuckles darkly, stroking his cock as you carefully peel one of your eyes open, blinking away the cum that falls onto your eyelash. You pant heavily, trying to regain your breath while looking up at him.
“Are you…” you gulp, tears brimming your eyes at the soreness in your ass, cheeks, and throat, suddenly overcome with emotion while looking at him. “Are you really mad at me?” you whisper. You hold your breath when Baekhyun cups your cheek, watching him carefully.
He looks down at you silently for a moment, wiping his thumb under your cum-coated eye. “Not anymore,” he murmurs, a softer look in his dark brown eyes.
You sniffle, wordlessly resting your forehead on his clothed stomach, lips wobbling at the fact that he did all that and all he did was strip out of his shoes and pants.
“Hey,” he whispers, crouching down to be level with you, gently holding your face in his hands. “Let me reward you, hmm?”
You blink away your tears, nodding a little. Baekhyun helps you back onto your feet and gestures to the bed. “On your knees, darling,” he looks you over, smiling at your hands tied behind your back. “Let me dom you a little longer.”
You nod, quickly replying when you notice his jaw clench. “Y-y-yes, sir,” you stutter, shakily climbing up onto the bed. You sit back onto your heels for a moment to regain your balance, hissing at the throbbing pain in your ass again, but nothing compares to the ache between your legs. You carefully lean forward, blushing all over again when your cheek meets the sheets, spreading your legs wider for him.
“Good girl.” Baekhyun comes up behind you, rubbing your trembling thighs, making you tremble even more when you feel his breath between your legs. “So perfect all spread out for me.”
You clench your bound fists, sucking in a breath before his tongue swipes through your folds, his large hands gripping your hips. “Louder.” He commands over your muffled moans, lapping at your soaked entrance. “Let the neighbors know who’s about to make you squirt all over their tongue, baby.”
You’d never admit how aroused his words make you, but based on how he chuckles with his bottom lip brushing against your folds, he already knows. Baekhyun takes his time, unlike how he fucked your mouth earlier. The tip of his tongue swirls around your clit before sucking it softly into his mouth, just enough to make you drip even more in his mouth.
“Baek-” you cry out when he smacks your ass, your tears soaking the sheets. “Sir, please.”
“Remember your place, pet,” he utters gruffly, nipping at your folds in warning.
“Yes, sir. Sorry, sir,” you moan, using all your willpower not to grind back against his face, but then again… should you stop yourself? The next smack he lands on your sore ass just eggs you on.
“Oh?” he pulls back, your arousal running down your inner thighs. “So you want it like that, huh?” Baekhyun chuckles darkly, shoving two fingers into you so suddenly you shout, jolting away from his hand. “Okay, baby.” He leans close again, his puffs of air fanning over your sensitive ass and throbbing clit. “I’ll make you cum until you can’t walk, then we’ll see how much fight you got left in you.” The way he speaks the words lowly into your core has you quivering. “Until you beg me to stop.”
You scoff, finding the strength to throw a smirk over your shoulder at him, meeting his dark eyes. “Try me,” you whisper, lowering your voice, “Baekhyun.” The growl he releases into your pussy is only the beginning.
Baekhyun, your dear boyfriend of two years, has spent that amount of time loving you, caring for you, and finding every way possible to make you come all over him. Mouth, fingers, cock, he knows the quickest and slowest route on how to give you the biggest “O’s” and your dumbass gave him every reason to use it against you. But that’s the game you like to play: pushing his limits over and over until he literally breaks you, only to make you whole again…
A whole fucking mess.
Baekhyun goes right for your clit, sucking on it harshly, pinching and tugging on it with his teeth, just enough to make you wince and whine and moan and scream when he rams a third finger inside of you. “I’m not stopping,” he mutters darkly over your frantic moans, holding you still when you keep swaying your hips away from him. “Until you cry for me, baby. Until you soak these sheets with your cum and tears.”
“Fuck!” you scream, biting a pillow when he slams his fingers right into your sweet spot, his blunt nails scraping your pulsing walls.
“That’s it.” He growls as you thrash in the sheets, the only thing keeping you on your knees is his hand gripping your hip, hard enough to leave a bruise for you to remember what happened later. Your train of thought instantly gets snatched back to him when his teeth scrape over your clit, pulling a scream from your dry throat as your vision goes black. You pant breathlessly against the sheets as your ears ring, your orgasm knocking the wind out of you entirely - and it hasn’t ended. It doesn’t stop. Baekhyun’s fingers are not slowing down in the slightest.
“You look pretty like this,” he mutters over your soft pleas, “already worn out from my fingers pounding your pussy. Tell me, baby.” His fingers curve deeper inside of you, ramming relentlessly against your spasming walls while your whole stomach tightens up in oversensitivity. “How are you going to take my cock later, hmm? Are you going to come on it and take my cum like the filthy little cum dump you are?”
You bury your face into the sheets, practically sobbing when he wraps his lips back around your clit. You dig your nails into your clenched fists, feeling your heartbeat pounding on every sore part of your body. All red and used up by him. Sweaty, teary, and pleasantly bruised.
The next orgasm he pulls from you happens so suddenly, you couldn’t warn him if you wanted to. One second your walls are clenching around his four fingers like a battering ram, and in the next, you feel a huge rush of wetness between your legs, your thighs quivering under the force of it.
“Good girl,” he groans over your muffled sobs, slowing down his fingers to lick you up. “So good,” he murmurs, sticking his tongue inside of you. “Mmm, can’t wait for you to do it again.”
Your eyes snap open at once. Again?! “B-Baek-” you full on cry when he smacks your ass again, pulling your hips back to make you grind on his tongue. “Sir, p-please-”
Baekhyun only fucks you harder, twisting his tongue inside of you in ways that make your knees give out entirely. He sits up behind you to hold you up, wrapping an arm around your waist while pressing his back to yours, slipping his fingers back into your tired core. “One more,” he pants, wetly kissing behind your ear. “Come on my fingers and I’ll reward you with my cock.”
You gulp back your protests, feeling boneless as a coil builds up in your stomach again, so intense you fear you’ll really break. Baekhyun’s fingers pounding your core echoes loudly throughout the whole room, the obscene noises that would normally make you blush sends you flying into an oragasm too hard to ignore. It starts from your fingertips, covering you from head to toe until you shatter in his arms, gushing on the sheets all over again.
“Good girl,” Baekhyun purrs while your whole body shakes in his arms, pulling out his fingers to roughly rub your clit, spraying it everywhere. Then finally - finally he pulls his hand out from between your legs, letting you fall onto the sheets.
“Look at you. You drenched the whole bed, baby,” he chuckles, teasingly running his wet fingers over your quivering thigh. He hums in thought for a moment, mischief clear in his low voice. “I’ll guess I’ll have to buy a new one.”
All you can do is lay there and breathe, not even phased by the wet spot between your legs, covering your thighs, ass, and some reaching as far as your stomach while you lay on the ruined sheets. You look up at Baekhyun in a daze when he rolls you over.
“What do you want now, baby?” he asks, cupping your teary, red cheek. “Hmm? Do you want me to come inside you? Fill you up like the good little whore you are?” he tilts his head, brushing his thumb over your lips. “Pick a color for me?”
You breathe heavily, staring up at him sluggishly. Your ass burns with every brush against the sheets, your cheeks feel a little swollen and your throat hurts worse than any flu you’ve ever had, and you feel almost completely numb between your legs. But you smile up at him, beaming when he brushes his nose to yours. “Yellow.”
Baekhyun smiles, kissing your forehead. “Your wish is my command, my love,” he murmurs warmly, his lips curling up against your skin. He carefully wraps an arm around you to sit you up, holding you to his chest while he unties your bound wrists, pressing a kiss to each one while looking you in the eyes. In that moment, you truly fall harder in love with him. With his damp hair, soft smile, and dewy skin.
Baekhyun gently lays you back down before finally pulling off his shirt. He tosses it aside, his necklace swinging from the motion, and settles between your legs, resting his hand on your quivering thigh. His brown eyes meet yours, still dark in lust, but sparkling in love with a bashful little grin on his face. He bites his lip, guiding his tip to your core, slowly sliding in before reaching up to interlock his fingers with yours. “My perfect girl.” He laughs when you hide your face in his chest, pressing his body fully to yours.
You smile weakly up at him, cupping his face in your hand while he gently thrusts into your tired core. Sparks of sensitivity shoot up your spine, but you’re content watching the pleasure forming across his handsome features. Baekhyun smiles at you between his soft moans and quiet grunts, making you breathless when he slightly increases the tempo.
“Are you sure, baby?” he whispers against your lips, grunting when you clench down on him. You wrap your arms around his neck, holding him to you when his thrusts falter, his hips grinding against yours.
“Come for me,” you whisper, “before my pussy retires.”
Baekhyun laughs, tightening his grip on your hip. “Okay, my love.” He leans down for a kiss, softly parting your lips, filling your mouth with the tangy taste of your cum along with his. “Fuck,” he grunts, jerking his hips into yours, pulling one last yelp from your sore throat while he groans into your neck. You rest your hand on his back, hugging him to you while his cock pumps you full of his warmth, feeling it trickle down your thigh.
“...I’m gonna have to call out of work tomorrow,” you murmur, coughing when your voice cracks.
Baekhyun laughs softly, pulling back to look at you with flushed cheeks, an endearingly sheepish smile on his face. “I will too.”
“You have a lot to get done, Baek,” you shake your heavy head, frowning at him. “You can’t just-”
“Yes I may have work to do,” he interrupts you, pressing a finger to your lips. “But none of it is ever more important than you.”
Your eyes soften as you look up at him, holding his face in your hands. “I love you, you sadistic psycho.”
“I love you more,” Baekhyun hums, chuckling, leaning back and pulling you along with him. “Let’s go. I’ll run us a bath.”
“Okay, but uh, B, you’re kinda still-” you yelp when he hoists you up, wrapping your thighs around his waist while he carries you to the bathroom…
With his cock still inside of you.
A/N: There's not much to say... the one shot speaks for itself :'D Thank you for reading! Have a (wet-) wonderful Wednesday! 😇
This episode was SO GOOD! I don’t often crow about how much I liked an episode but wowza! I enjoyed this one!
MERCESS!!! My ship!!! They are so hot! And So sweet! I love their interactions! So pure! I’m just a smush all about them and I’m never going to shut up about the cute post-coital pillow talk! 🥰🥰🥰
Carol taking the kids to school!! Adorable! Finally some good food!
Yes, Zeke, finally. Apologize for how you treated Carol. She deserves it. You are alive thanks to her.
The tension between Lance, Daryl, Aaron, and Gabriel during this episode is *chef’s kiss* perfection! Also, when Daryl kicked that walkers head and said “saved you a bullet,” I almost fell out. 🤣🤣 Hilarious!
Lance. You are so going to die, and I’m not going to feel a bit sorry about it.
You can almost see how much he is just unraveling, and I’m enjoying every second.
Mercer and Princess, again, with the heart to heart talks. My HEART! Listen, I’m here for men apologizing to women in this episode. WE STAN MEN WHO ADMIT WHEN THEY’RE WRONG. Or. We at least acknowledge them.
Carol and Zeke’s talk was precious. I may be in the minority here, but I loved their talk. Like Zeke says, they are friends, and as friends who support one another, I really appreciate Zeke acknowledging that Carol carries a heavy load because she’s strong enough to do it. (I wish she didn’t have to, but that’s another essay altogether.) When he says she makes the light, I NEED Carol to hear that, and know she’s part of good things too, not just having to do the bad things and the hard things.
Also, can we talk about How GORGEOUS Carol is in that light and that scene?
I cracked the fuck up at “You know we’re not getting back together, right?”
I don’t know how it will play on television, but at least on AMC+ it was unedited, and unbleeped, and hearing Daryl drop an f-bomb was THE highlight of the episode for me. I will watch it 100 times more. Probably. Most likely.
Carol has been wearing a Lot of blue in her scenes with Zeke this season. And red in her scenes with Daryl. If I were a conspiracy minded kind of person, I might be inclined to make something out of that.
Anyway, I loved this episode. One more episode left for this block and then we get into 11C and I cannot wait. I am PUMPED!
Tim coudn't have chosen a worst co- show runner if he could. That's why even 4x14 felt so strange we had some great scenes in between her BT fanfiction. That's why she was the only one that saw buck that way, that's why 5x07 and 5x09 were BT centered. Honestly hope she get fired like tonight. Thanks to her a lot of people lost all the enthusiasm for 5b, we will how the ratings will go on monday
I'm sure she won't get fired but hey! We manifested it on another show so who knows! 🤣
I honestly always felt like 4x14 was giving me whiplash! We had the shooting scene and ride to the hospital, the Chris scene and Will scene (both of which Tim apparently fought to put in because she didn't want them), but in between All Of That, we had the reporter of all people being the only one to see (that we are shown or told) Buck right after?! Bobby's reaction to Buck seemed weird given what we learned this season about Buck's parents, Buck didn't even get any hugs?! From anyone except Chris?! This was a perfect Bobby/Buck bonding opportunity or even a moment for Chim and Buck, or Hen and Buck, but instead we got....the reporter who didn't actually offer any comfort and only managed to take advantage of Buck being a literal mess, not to mention using the same kind of language his mom used to berate him. The "you didn't chase after me" line will never not make steam come out of my ears in anger 😤😤😤, the kiss in the middle of everything, her being at Eddie's welcome home party when no one from the 118 was there?! I get them not wanting to overwhelm him his first day back home, and maybe they were all on shift, but it was such a weird look. IDK, the vibes and the story they were trying to tell with 4x14 was just kinda all over the place. And yeah, it's set up to show BT being doomed from the start but like, pick a different episode and stop missing good emotional beats just to wedge her into an episode she didn't belong in.
Same with 5x07, and 5x09, we didn't need any of that! Her other brief moments were important to show the cracks in the BT relationship and Buck slowly isolating himself, getting no emotional support from her, and falling back into bad habits as everything else is crumbling around him, but we didn't need any of her backstory to do that, especially when we know next to nothing about Ravi, and being down several characters means we could have spent more time with the ones we DO have still around.
That's the concern I have about the new character coming along as well. People are already demanding that she's more than a love interest and needs to have her own arc and be her own character and it's like no! No she doesn't! That's not her purpose here! If she was a new main being added then yes (but also no because I'd rather see more about Ravi than them adding another new main and learning about them instead), she would need to be her own character but she's not (at least not yet but if y'all don't shut up she might be and then we'll be right back where we were with 5a), she's here to be a foil for Buck. He's not been pushed to the brink yet, and if Breaking Point taught us anything it's that he's got a least one more bad life choice left in him. Buck's been languishing in the dark feeling suffocated for too long. He's getting ONE (1) hit of adrenaline that makes him feel alive again, and he's gonna go off the deep end a bit. And none of the firefam will push him towards that because they know about his issues with acting expendable. Lucy does not. Just like Lena had no way of knowing Eddie was not going to use fighting as a healthy outlet, but turn it into something else, Lucy won't know that Buck has zero regard for his own life and isn't just out there having a good time.
I actually am really excited for this arc and I think it's going to be so interesting to see, and the potential for good Buddie and Buck/Bobby scenes to come out of it, but I probably won't be able to fully enjoy it until we know for sure she's gone forever. 🤷♀️ I have faith, but like, not that much faith. Before 4x14 it would be a different story because I honestly thought they were making it so clear BT were bad together that them getting together was not even on my radar. 🙃🙃🙃
i can’t remember a random Wednesday ever being this blessed! A kenobi episode AND a new TW chap! The update was EXQUISITE! I recall an anon asking about whether you’ve ever thought about doing a chap from OBi wans POV but I can’t remember whether you said you were thinking about it/considering it/or it was unlikely? Can I be cheeky & inquire again? 🥺 I wanna know so bad what’s going on in his head! Anytime he looks at anakin it’s prob just head empty, dick hard but I wanna know for sure!
YES KENOBI DAY!
I just caught up a few hours ago and am still sorting it out in my brain. Literally everyone in the episode was a BAMF?! Even baby Leia, look at her go! So proud. And by the Force, she is so much like her mom but in this episode I saw a ton of Anakin. Brilliant.
On to Troubled Water:
I have briefly talked about the Obi thing, yeah! From the start, I wanted the majority of the story told from Anakin's POV, and to end it with Obi-Wan's.
As for whether I'll do any like, direct rewrites of chapters from his POV, I'm not sure yet so I can't make promises, only say that I am thinking about it. It may simply depend on what all gets covered in the main fic because I do plan to go back and address several things. If I do my job right, Obi-Wan's reactions, and his feelings, should make more sense in hindsight and/or upon rereading.
"Head empty, dick hard" cracked me up tho ngl 🤣
He 100% has a couple moments where all higher brain function ceases. But there is usually a lot going on in his mind. Whenever I write a scene I am always thinking about what he is thinking and feeling just as much as I am with Anakin.
Anakin just isn't the most reliable narrator. He's still very emotionally intuitive - not as dense as he seems or as I joke about him being - but he is prone to misinterpreting the emotions he does sense or assigning meaning to them that isn't there. He's looking at it as, "this is the reaction I want / if it were me, I would do this," and when Obi-Wan's responses don't line up with his desires or expectations, he jumps to conclusions. Obi-Wan is just better at hiding his feelings, but they're still there. In every chapter so far, he has dealt with his fair share of internal conflict.
Once they reach a level of camaraderie where Obi-Wan can just be himself with Anakin, not as a Master or even a Jedi but as a friend and partner, their communication will improve. They both have some personal growth to achieve, but they'll get there.
(fr tho Obi-Wan is also horny as fuck and suffering because I'm evil that way, muahahahaha)
Like ok, this scene from ch4?
Glancing up from his master’s tempting lap, he finds Obi-Wan staring at him oddly. Eyes glazed and distant, lips parted as though he was about to speak but lost his train of thought.
“Master?” he repeats.
Obi-Wan blinks, eyes refocusing. “What?”
“You look tired. Maybe you should rest before we arrive.”
Obi-Wan holds his gaze a moment longer, then looks away and shifts on his ass, tugging awkwardly at the cloth over his knees. “Yes, I suppose you’re right,” he says, lying down on his own bunk with a weary sigh. “Who knows what sort of mess we’ll be walking into.”

Anyway I hope that answers your question! Thank you so much for the interest, it really helps me as a writer to understand readers' perspectives as well. What to look out for, things that may require elaboration down the line, which breadcrumbs to return to later etc. Hope you have an awesome day, my friend, and may the Force be with you! 💙
okay but what were your favourite parts, feel free to get long winded even though i know you commented but i still wanna hear your thoughts because i enjoy getting your perspective on the chapters 😁😁😁😁
Crying cause I just reread the chapter this morning 🤣 idk how long this is gonna be but lemme get into it *cracks knuckles*
Ok so obviously that nasty ass sex scene was definitely one of my favorite parts. Look, I’m a sucker for good smut (which is something you got down pat like idk how the hell you’re able to that) and the fact Dick was taking charge and had my sister Kory acting UP??? Ain’t no way I’m not gonna add that to my list. I also like seeing Kory being a bit submissive in bed because she’s usually the one leading things, so it’s a nice change of pace.
This isn’t necessarily a favorite part, but all the little glimpses and scenes of Dick being down BAD definitely are my fave. Which is why I love when you write from Dick’s perspective, because trust, when you get into Dick’s internal monologue, trust he’s gonna be going through some pining and suffering. When it comes to Dick and Kory, I feel like in most media it’s always Kory chasing after Dick. Kory suffering from loving Dick too much while being unsure bout how he feels or waiting for him to sort his shit out. So it is MOST pleasing to me to see Dick being the one put in that position. It’s truly what he deserves and you just write it too well. Like when I say you give me everything I want, I am not being sarcastic 😩
Oh girl this definitely got a lot longer than I thought it would be but that’s just the affect your writing has 🤷🏾♀️ Thanks so much for the dope ass, nasty ass chapter cannot wait for what you got next!

Almond Crunch: what’s your favorite obstacle in your wip? is there anything you’re excited for your characters to overcome? (or not overcome?)
I'll answer this for Tales of a Fake WAG because I really don't talk about them enough.
My favourite obstacle (kinda feel bad about calling him that lol) is Jordan, Harley's fiance who she lost. In spite of the fact that he isn't present in the story, his presence is so strong and he's such a fundamental part of the story. Obviously, he and what happened to him is part of Harley but also once the truth is out, he becomes something that strengthens the bond between Harley and Roman after a while instead of coming between them.
Following Harley's journey through her mourning, working through her grief is something I really enjoy, it's heart wrenching but also worth it all because in the end she accepts what happened would always be part of her but she could and should keep on living.
Peanut Butter Filling: share a snippet that really shows a character’s personality. (or: talk about an upcoming scene where their personality will shine!)
So this is a yet unedited part from Tales of a Fake WAG when Harley has a melt down and Roman just holds him. I really thinks it just shows how deeply he cares, that in spite of all the hurt, he'd always be there for those who he loves.
“You are a jerk! I hate you!” Harley screamed, trying to get away from under the cold spray, from his hold on her.
“I know, Harls, I know.” He turned her around and hold her against him, his hand reaching to her hair, gently running his fingers through her messy locks.
“You made me forget. You made me forget. I hate you.” She hit him wherever she could, his side, his arms as she tried to push away but he held onto her, not bending, not moving, just taking it, for both of them.
He slipped down over the wall, scooping her up in his arms, rocking back and forth, just trying to calm her down.
“It hurts so much.” She punched him again but unlike before there was barely any force behind the move now. “Stop making it hurt, you dick!”
“I am doing just that,” he whispered, his own body trembling under the cold water. His lips brushed her forehead and surely, she felt way less hot then when he’d pushed her under the shower minutes ago. Roman reached above his head, closing the tap.
“I can’t take this, I can’t take this pain.” She shook her head, her eyes mirroring nothing but sorrow.
“Just hold onto me,” he said with a gentle voice, his teeth chattering as his clothes stuck against his body. “You aren’t alone.”
“I hate you. I hate you so much.” He let out a shaky sigh as he stared at her. She looked so tiny, smaller than usual, so helpless, so lost. “Please.”
“I’m not leaving.” He patted a kiss on her forehead, tightening his hold on her, ready to stand up and slip out of their soaked clothes now that she seemed to calm down more or less.
“Jordan said the same.” She whispered, her voice cracking as she said the name.
“I’m sorry.” Roman said quietly, staring at her for a moment as he just heard her say his name for the first time and it was almost as if a ghost just got a face, a name and it wasn’t the unknown anymore that threatened him.
Fluff Filling: tell me a bit about the softest relationship in your wip.
Roman and Bowie, the dog, they have some very deep conversations 🤣 But jokes aside I really think it's Harley and Roman... How at one point Roman just ends up thinking it wouldn't matter if Harley didn't love him back if only the time she spent with her would help her moving on, that's just so pure. Their relationship from both of their part becomes so soft, like a warm blanket, a sunny spring day, they become each other's comfort.
＂𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐕𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐧𝐭＂🐊👑 (P.S SORRY 😐 for my bad 🤗 language 😅) When I’ve watched #lokiseries Crocki 🐊was the one that made me crack the whole time especially the scene where he bites President Loki’s hand 🤣😂....So Im still continuing my #mcu edits so here you are ..”THE REPTILE 🦎 HADDOCK VARIANT” 😂😅 inspired from Crocki I really love Elsa ❄️ in Sylvie style altyit took a while but it was worth it.

For the record, atm I’m replying to your answer to my long ask (0/12/‘21, 01:27 UTC+2). As a matter of fact, our discussions have become so intricate that I’m forced to write this out on a notepad beforehand. 😅 (Not that I mind, I love writing by hand -> it kind of works as meditation for me.)
🏹: i also absolutely love writing by hand, and i have lots of lovely copybooks just waiting to be filled in with my little thoughts, so i totally get you!!
🎼: Anygays, I managed to finish most of the PeteKao clips (just not Our Skyy, I hope I didn’t miss too much).
And I think I can now articulate what bothers me so much about PeteKao in Dark Blue Kiss specifically. First of all, there’s Non and the toxic storyline attached to him, which I didn’t appreciate at all! Sorry, fight me all you want, but I cannot for the life of me understand the necessity of that storyline to illustrate the cracks in Pete and Kao’s relationship. I get that Pete and Kao are out of their “honeymoon phase” in DBK, but I think there would’ve been countless other opportunities to demonstrate this (there’s the advice Pete’s dad gave them -> I will get to that in a bit, there’s their friends, there’s a whole environment of school -> it’s not quite as severe as F4 nor is it as hostile as Bad Buddy but still if Mint is anything to go by 😶, and of course there is Kao’s mother).
As I mentioned, I only watched Kiss Me Again after DBK. But I knew PeteKao from the edits (YouTube edits my beloved 💕), and from those I gathered this couple had already been through A LOT. So downgrading their struggles to lack of trust and petty jealousy, to me seems like an annulment of the progress they had already made as a couple. (Kao fearing his mother’s judgment of their relationship would’ve made more sense if it was previously mentioned in KMA. But there, it was mainly Pete who was hesitant about going public.) Meanwhile, I didn’t see as much of Kao struggling to open up to his family (a topic that actually would have resonated with a lot of viewers). I’m know that was hard for Kao (and for countless “Kao’s” with him, like myself). But it isn’t impossible: PeteKao had to fight their own battles (either for the relationship itself or for defending it from the outside world), but they didn’t live in a Bad Buddy like universe in which even interacting with each other was forbidden.
So in conclusion:
#1. It’s not that I think PeteKao is a whiny couple. Just that the scenes written for them generated a lot of (unneeded) tension, which in turn led to a lot of bickering/ whining. Ultimately leading the plot away from the real pressure point, which Pete’s dad already embarked on in pt. 3 of the PeteKao cut of KMA. I paraphrase: “I fully accept what you mean to each other 🖤, but many people may not understand your relationship, and you might find yourself topic of gossip. I wouldn’t want you to be put in the hot seat, so I ask you to keep your relationship quiet at this beginning stage.”
Whether you agree with the man is an entirely different story. But I think the PeteKao story would’ve been a 1,000 times better if the writers had focused the “gossip” entirely on the relationship itself. Not on something that essentially happened outside of the relationship. Especially if that involves a subject so serious as SA.
edit: I am dumb of ass bc I just figured out that KMA is a prequel to Kiss the Series! 🤡 But what I have seen from that is that Kao is indeed a bit anxious about keeping them on de downlow, but at the very least all of their friends know already! So I really don’t understand why they make such a big deal of being open about their relationship in DBK?! Unrelated: is it just me or does Pete look older here than in DBK? 🤣
That all being said, let’s introduce my second controversial opinion. 😈
#2. I think MorkSun should have been the central couple. Again: it’s not that I dislike PeteKao as a couple. But by the end of Our Skyy (which I briefly looked up just now), their biggest problem is a slight uncertainty about their relationship. (More like beginner’s shivers or something: the nerves you feel when you’ve just started something you’ve never done before.) Put on top of that Kao’s family being in the dark (blue) about their relationship. That’s tough, might be dramatic, but unless Kao’s mum is related to Mrs. Parakul, it’s not the end of the world.
With MorkSun however, I can already name 5 tropes that are bound to cause conflict: a.) they start of as enemies; b.) Sun becomes Mork’s boss; c.) Mork’s unhealthy coping mechanisms and Sun trying to help; d.) the classic “never date your friend’s sibling” and most of all e.) the obvious age gap between Sun and Mork. (I believe it’s never explicitly stated how big the age gap is precisely but I’d say it’s at least 5 years, which at 17[?] is a lot!) Put all of those things together and you have A LOT to overcome. (12 episodes might not have been enough!) By handing MorkSun the subplot, the writers glossed over those (imho) pretty significant hurdles. Which individually should at least take 1 episode each to overcome successfully. Because MorkSun got the short end of the stick, the impression may have been given that all those initial adversities weren’t that big of an issue in the first place. And that’s unjust, because they were, and deserved to be treated as such. (And if the showrunner didn’t feel like investing in the couple, they could simply have given Sun a cheesy “loyal customer” LI and shipped Mork with Rain 🤷♀️ [which would have been a valid solution]…they didn’t so it would’ve made sense if they had put their big brains together to really develop this storyline but alas. 🙄)
Side-note: I am personally team “love can overcome almost anything”. Throughout my 20+ years of life, I’ve seen a number of unlikely couples, who made it work in the end. Notwithstanding the hurdles along the way. But that only works when you address those hurdles. I think DBK should could have done that better.
Well, that’s all I’ve got to say about that topic. Glad to (hopefully) have cleared that up! Now I’m off watching A Tale of a 1,000 Stars yet again to cure my depression. 🥲 I’ll check in with you later about everything else. 😉
🏹: thank you so much for sharing everything you feel about this series! this was a very interesting read for someone who is a huge fan of it and loved almost everything about it. i don't want to sit here and pick apart every single little thing you've said that i disagree with, because i think we just have two widely different opinions on it, and that's awesome tbh! like, good for us!
🎼: Side-note: One thing that really makes my blood boil is the use of borderline transgressive behaviour as a device to create “turmoil” in a plot. I have seen it in TV-series, movies and even a novel nominated for a Booker Prize! 😧 Apart from the fact that it’s unnecessary 9/10 times, it’s also unethical and blatantly disrespectful to survivors.
🏹: as a survivor, i didn't particularly appreciate that writing decision either.
🎼: Side-note: another controversial opinion, but I think the premise of Our Skyy is slightly chaotic 😬…especially the part where there’s literally a “Mork” and a “Sun” in different couples a show that’s partly set in the PeteKao universe! 🤪
🏹: the premise is definitely a bit unhinged, but that's exactly why i am in love with it!! i also don't think it's weird that we have a mork and a sun in ourskyy - they are just nicknames given to many different people and characters (drake's first big role was as mork, for example), and since it can't really create confusion, i think that's totally alright and not weird at all.
🎼: Side-note: I’m a bit old-fashioned in this respect, but I think the goal of any tv series aimed at teens should always partly be to relate to what their audience is going through -> or at least acknowledge the opportunity there.
🏹: a fair opinion to have as well!
🎼: Side-note: Pete’s dad really belongs in the top-10 of best parent redemptions -> put that in your pipe and smoke it, PatPa’s dad! 😤
🏹: i think he is genuinely my favorite fictional dad of all time!!
🎼: P.S. It’s suddenly almost 3am here… Why am I still awake? 😳
🏹: i hope u went to sleep soon after sending that!!
🎼: It’s operanon ft. their 🗒 again! This time, I’ll reply to your other answers.
All right, it’s clear you don’t need my advice on anything. You know your stuff pretty well all by yourself. And I respect that. So from now on, I will leave the patronising tendencies at the door.
🏹: OK THEN JKGJFKGJKLDFJGKJGKFDJG
🎼: With regard to the previous PeteKao ask, however, I have one recommendation. I found this series while I couldn’t sleep last night. (Oops, my dumb ass gave away my time zone! 🤦♀️) When I said the (sub-)plot for PeteKao’s relationship troubles could’ve been written differently, I meant something like this. (I checked your rec list twice and My Tee/ Cause You’re My Boy wasn’t listed there… 🤓) Darn, at times I thought Tee’s mum was even meaner than Mrs. Parakul and that says a lot. (It could also have been the slightly melodramatic acting skills of the actress btw. 🤫)
🏹: you just keep coming in with controversial opinions unintentionally, huh? /lh only the biggest drake and/or frank stans were capable of watching that series, and as much as i love their chemistry and drake in particular, i'm just... no.
🎼: Moving on. If I may speak for myself, I can handle quite a lot of implied violence (hence the Law & Order addiction), but I back out when things get too graphic. I have strong senses, especially my vision is well developed. (i.e.: When someone tells me about something, I always create a mental image, mostly involuntary. 😖) So when violence or tension is too in my face, I simply cannot cope. Same goes for aggression/ yelling people. Whether it’s my sensitive soul, my past being bullied or my mummy issues, idk. It’s just how it is, I guess.
🏹: and you are absolutely valid!!
🎼: I still hope reliable anon will praise me for my puns. 🥺 And @ unreliable anon, idk which anons are invited to sit at the round table. But could I invite myself? ^^ (Fun fact: did you know that records differ on how many seats actually were at Arthur’s table? Some speak of 225 knights, some even go as far as 1,300 places! The “official table”, the Winchester round table, lists 24 seats however. That should be enough for our limited company. 😉) I’m very curious as to what unreliable anon’s seating chart will look like. ⚔️
🏹: that is very interesting indeed!! and every named anon is invited to the roundtable, so you as well, of course.
🎼: Let me finish by saying that you and your pretty eyes still deserve the world! 💗💜💙🏳️⚧️💙💜💗
🏹: thank you so much!! 🥺
🎼: Hopefully I redeemed myself, and all possible tension will be out of the way. I am just here to have a good time. ):)
🏹: there is no need to redeem yourself, i hope i am very clear with my light-hearted tone indicators - everything i say is not serious, and no one is actually mad at you for your opinions, don't worry!
Everything about Sabo 😭😭😭😭 (I knew he was alive, I spoiled myself -wari, self- but damn, it still hurts... Knowing that he didn't remember Ace and Luffy then only remembering them when it was too late. 😭😭😭😭😭💔💔💔💔)
Senor Pink's backstory (the baby ootd 😭)
Kyros and Rebecca's love story lol (I'm a sucker for love kkkkkkkkkk)
Law's backstory 😭💔
Cora-san taking Law at every hospital and wreaking havoc after doctors and people discriminate the poor kid. I love his love for little Law 🥺😭 Cora-san!! ❤️❤️😭
Cora-san saying "I love you" to Law and doing that big smile of his ✌️😁
Law's boyish laugh after that 🥰 (he's so cute 😍)
Cora-san holding out so that Law can escape without being heard 😭😭😭😭😭😭 srsly his love for Law 😭😭😭😭❤️❤️💔💔💔

Usopp knocking Sugar down the first time 🤣🤣
Birth of god Usopp, the 500M man hehehehe
Wicca calling out Zoro for being bad at directions (it cracks me up all the time 😅🤣🤣)
Bartolomeo's fan boy moments hahahahahaha
Bartolomeo's efforts in making sure Robin (and the straw hats are safe)
The accidental allegiance formed between the Coliseum warriors and them ending up swearing loyalty to Luffy-senpai.
Mr. Soldier and Rebecca (all of it 🥺💖)
The almost-a-love-story of Sanji-kun and Violet 😍😅 I was so used to Sanji-kun getting in trouble bc of his love and respect for women but this is particularly unforgettable since his efforts somehow paid off. I like that little twist there. Oh and they freakin look good together. Well, Sanji-kun (if serious) looks good with anybody anyway (at least for me...). 🥰
The socio-political aspect of the whole arc. Sometimes it catches me off guard, the fact that one moment I'm only watching an anime and then then next thing I know it taught me sth about real life (fiction mirrors reality) which is so awesome for me.
Cavendish and Bartolomeo's quarrels. I particularly like that one part at the end where Cavendish is about to sleep then Bart suggested they tie him up with chains because... Hakuba. And then later on it was shown that, true enough, Hakuba took over (he was so funny, chained like that lol) and thank you so much Bart for saving everyone's lives. HAHAHAHA
Hakuba at the Coliseum
Zoro drinking the sake in the father cup instead of Luffy. 🤣🤣🤣😅
Luffy v Fujitora before they set sail.
I figured as much but it still made the cut, the kidnapping of Rebecca, and Mr. Soldier being Kyros.
Doflamingo's glasses (they broke, I wanted to see his eyes, but didn't lol 🤣 then when he's at the navy ship, he had them again... 🤔)
Sengoku's attachment to Cora-san (didn't expect there to be an emotional scene for the former fleet admiral 💔 and I love what he said about not looking for reasons for someone's love and remembering Cora-san forever 🥺🥰)
Zoro chuckling after Sabo said the same thing Ace did back at Alabasta. 💚💚 That's the first time in a long while, isn't it? (stifling a laugh after hearing Pica's voice not counted hahahaha)
Pica's voice and Luffy laughing at it. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Zoro insulting Pica's laugh lol
Zoro's planning 101
Zoro's strategies (saving the King's Punch for later, using Orlumbus' killer bowling technic, pushing the birdcage to temporarily stop it to buy Luffy some time) which all worked fine. I'm so proud of my marimo hihihi 💚💚💚
Brook outsmarting Giolla by pretending to be into art hahahaha it was impressive
Usopp shooting the longest range (and actually being able to see his target clearly like some sort of an xray vision. I wonder if that is a haki...????)
Mouji having the same voice as Brook hahahah can't forget about this too 😅
I think I'll stop here...
This list might get longer lol I think I missed some stuff but the bottomline is... One Piece is awesome! 😍💚
Zou Saga, here I come!!! For real this time. Hahah ✌️😁
I watched Eternals last night. Heres random notes I took while watching (some might be internalised from tweets I saw around the time it released):
😒 Icarus has Big homelander vibes
🤨 Eternals having relations with Humans is akin to statutory rape, right?
😄 lol they put a line about Thanos in to get ahead of snarky youtube folks
🤔 Being the guy with a brawler skillset seems weak
😳 They clappin cheeks in a disney movie?
😠 Why they make the black man cause slavery inadvertantly?
🤯 Mad weary makes me think of why being immortal is always one of the worst choices in those superpower what ifs. Also makes me think of that Omni Man speech in Invincible where he compares his relationship to his wife to being like a pet dog
🤣 It's unfair how he got singled out online but I'm cracking up at how Kumail didnt have to get swole. Like great job putting in work but it was not required.
🥴 Idk, eternals mission seems straightforward. Human life is pretty cheap. Esp on their scale of time
🤔 Druig got nerd from chronicle vibes
• Really dont get the kid thing. They're not from earth so why the hangups?
• Idk. I cant comprehend on that scale why a planet for a star is a bad trade
😃 Godzilla laser to throat
🤨 How many years and she just learned that tree deviant trick
🤔 So what does the Eternals existence mean for religions of the world? Like Thena and Icaris ended up in myths, but who was Jesus?
🤔 Invincible dog thing again. This man got a whole family
🤔 Vibranium? He help wakanda?
🥵 Thena and the super deviant got kinda sexy before she cut him up
🤔 What did she turn the celestial into that wouldnt shift climate or destory earths core? (I thought she was turning it to ice but they later said stone)
😂 Kumail never came back lol
🤨 Cant just make Sprite look like an adult???
😥 Sprite could die for really petty reasons and never experience all that stuff she was longing for
🤨 so they just having characters self-immolate/unalive themselves in disney movies now?
😆 Why the celestial give them genitals lol
😆 Now I'm going to think of that scene in Ex Machina where the Oscar Isaac character tells the guy that the robot is anatomical
I think my biggest problems were there wasn't enough time to set up each character and I wasn't fully into why saving humans was worth more than making stars. Idk feels like on a scale of thousands of years, the positives of human lives are kinda irrelevant. I'm not big brained enough to figure an alternative
Hey Rebecca! Thank you so much for your ask! I wish you, Hawks and Mirko a wonderful day / night ! <33
For this one, I chose Leon!
😁 - How often does your f/o smile, and what makes them happy?
Leon didn't smile often in the beginning, since he's actually a very serious person, but since we're together, he smiles way more often. He likes the tiny things in life, but I guess Brownies make him very very happy. He just loves sweets, but also cuddles and / or hugs / kisses. I think small ways of affection make him very happy too! :]
🤣 - What makes your f/o laugh? What’s something they do to make you laugh?
Dad Jokes. There's no one that laughs about them except Leon. I don't know why, but he loves those so so much and he always cracks up when I tell him one.
He tickles me or shows me funny videos of animals, since I like those very much. And if that doesn't work, he gets funny interviews from my favorite actors :D
😷 - How does your f/o take care of you when you’re unwell? (Emotionally or Physically)
Leon is patient with me and he knows when I'm getting bad or unwell again. He takes care of me by lots of cuddling, and lots of...speaking. Like, he tells me storys about what he did when he was younger. I love listening to his storys and they hype me up. But mostly by cuddling, whispering sweet nothings + lots of kisses. He's just there for me, listens to me, let's me vent and so on. He also watches my comfort movies with me, no matter how often I want to rewatch one special scene or listens to my comfort playlist over and over again with me. That's his form of taking care for me
🤠 - How do you and your f/o have fun?
We watch old horror movies. There's so much badly made stuff that makes us laugh or we just watch funny videos in general. We sometimes even dance to music. It's jsut the small things, we always find something to laugh about :D
Edit: this gets really derailed from where it started akhskjd sorry it's 4:30AM
This totally has nothing to do with the fact I'm getting close to Black Friday currently,, I'm almost done with Ghost Stories
The Freak Show coming before SQS surprised me at first, yeah sksksk BUT must say I wouldn't recast SQS if I was given the chance. Literally would not change a thing.
Skyler played Grace really well, and?? Black Friday onwards.. She went OFF playing Grace in the last few episodes and I'll never get over it??
Both she and Diego did absolutely phenomenal in Pete's (Genuinely great) death scene but Grace cracking in these last few episodes is just. Skyler played it so well.
The moment in Black Friday Zayday tells Grace she won't leave with her? Hurts me. Grace is on the verge of tears and takes it like a stab to the heart, changes her opinion on killing Munsch almost solely due to Pete's opinion which.. sells further how much she cared for him, which is a whole other wave of sad.
Literally, the one thing that bothers me about Pete's death scene is the fact Hester should not have been in his closet. She called him earlier and according to Grace, he had not left his room since leaving her with Wes that last time.
But I'm fully able to look past it because the scene is so perfectly done-
The gold lighting being both a nod to Sophia AND a visual representation of how Pete saw Grace as his prize by this point, (His "gold medal" in a way) and the way Grace is almost always in the lighter spots whilst Pete is almost always in the shadows.
(He also. gets the fucking. BEST. SHOTS. WITH HIS DEVIL SUIT. MY GLASS ANIMALS DEVIL.)
I have an alternate/AU of his death that fixes the issue with Hester,,, but it ties into S2 so I won't. talk about it here sksksk
Bonus his death scene is before the retcon!! Fuck the retcon :D Hester deserved SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE RETCON.
Sorry I'm. having a moment.
RIGHT !!! O F F
Really though !! I felt so so bad when Grace was left alone like that; it does show how much she thought of Pete, and how brave she was, standing her ground for her belief in him.
HOW ARE WE DOING MALEX FAM?! This episode was so good and so much fun and it really felt like things were moving along! I’m so excited to flail over all the good stuff we got! As per usual, salt is over here, now, on to the good stuff!
I loved the opening starting with “nothing is ever as it seems” which tied into Tyler’s interview and into the theme of the episode.
Isobel continues to make alien jokes and it cracks me up every time. 🤣 Plus as much as I am over the vision plot, having the “spooky” scene and Isobel making a ouija board was fun. I also liked getting to see her and Rosa together again, as much as story wise it’s an odd choice, Amber and Lily work well together, and Isobel giving an “alien puberty” talk was hilarious. But we also got that great interaction of “I thought when I got sober life would get easier”, and “It never does, we just get stronger.” We also got a little closure on Noah which was nice.
Rosa’s little earmuffs!! She’s such a great character and I’m glad we’re getting to see so much of her this season. “I’m not the girl I was a year ago.” Girl, yes! We see that growth, and we love it! I’m so excited to see her working with Michael on controlling her powers which honestly should have happened last season, but I’m happy to be getting it now. And after 3x05 we know Vlamis and Amber can work so well together! I’m loving Rosa getting new and interesting powers too, and Mimi referring to her as an alien was interesting to say the least! Especially since there was no connection to her when Max was killing both Liz and Kyle. I’m enjoying the show giving us all this alien lore and I can’t wait to find out more!
Liz swearing at lab equipment is such a mood and one of the things I love about her character that makes her seems so real. We got a glimpse of Science Bros Liz and Mikey and I can’t wait for them to get the whole team (which includes Kyle) back together! I also loved that Liz was picking up on things not being quite right and how she can tell the “Max” is lying to her. Her figuring out it was Jones was so fun because WE knew (or were pretty darn sure) but it was still exciting to be proven right.
Speaking of, Nathan is kinda killing it with Jones! He is such a fascinating character! I was so disappointed we didn’t get any mistaken identity shenanigans when Jones was out the first time so I was thrilled to get a second shot that that. He also keeps getting the good lines! “Who are you?” “Now that’s a complicated question.” and “You say never bring a knife to a gun fight. We’ll see about that.” He’s just so much fun in an evil way and I’m loving this plotline and I’m happy that it’s finally starting to ramp up. I thought Jones was using Lucky to track down more bad men for him to drain with his power but he just killed them with the sword (not suspicious at all my dude) so I wonder if he can absorb the power through the sword or if he just wanted to kill some people. I can’t wait to get more alien info. Leaning into the sci-fi part of the show has been such a good choice and is really helping make this season fun, fresh, and interesting.
LUCKY!! I was so worried something had happened to him and I’m glad he’s okay but like...Maybe get him away from Jones? He shouldn’t have to see violence like that, he’s just a sweet little boy! 😭😭😭 You know who could use a dog? Alex. Or at the very least Michael. I’m sure the junkyard could use a pupper around!
SANDERS!! Grouchy old man, my beloved! I love that he called Michael out on his BS deflecting about Alex and he’s clearly been in the know for quite some time. We love to see it! Also the fact that he makes it clear it was obvious? Teasing Michael about his love life? Also being smart and helping Michael calm down and focus so he can get answers? Being a zoologist apparently? We have no choice but to stan.
The Alex and Liz talk was SO GOOD! They definitely need to interact more and them taking the time to talk about how great Kyle is and how when they are struggling they turn to him for advice?! 😭😭😭 I’m hoping we get more of that dynamic because it’s been sorely lacking, but also, they really need a Kyle buffer to make sure they don’t both become evil geniuses and take over the world! 🤣 Liz imitating Kyle was hilarious too. I’m so happy she’s moving more to the forefront of the season (finally).
This episode gave us some great sassy and BAMF Alex moments as well and I am LOVING it! It’s a shame we had to wait so long to really kick off this Deep Sky plot but man did it kick off this episode! I caught that glimpse of the alien symbol from that sneak peek picture of Alex in a barn so I’m excited to see where that leads! Alex handling the lab tech was great, and his little “I hacked the medical database. And the Department of Defense” said with that cocky smirk?! We LOVE to see it! We are getting confident, sassy, bad ass hacker Alex back and I’m SO excited.
Also, the sheer number of delightful memes to come out of Eduardo asking Alex if he believes in aliens is *chef’s kiss*
NGL Ramos had me thinking he was a good guy with all his talk about wanting to start a conversation with aliens and not being afraid of the mysteries of the universe and telling Alex he’s not his father and not to lose faith in himself. I also think it’s fascinating that he mentions at this point that he joined for personal reasons, just like Alex. He could be talking about Jesse and the family legacy, but I’m sure he knows more about aliens than he’s telling just yet. Now we all saw the gun moment, but we also know he’s supposed to open up and share some info with Alex and with that big reveal (My notes here just say “UNCLE EDUARDO?!” 🤣 Poor Kyle, he has GOT to stop learning about relatives this way), I’m wondering if Eduardo is a good guy and is concerned Alex is more like Jesse and wants to hunt aliens, and once they get past that hurdle he won’t be so bad. I just want Alex to have ONE (1) good father figure in his life, is that too much to ask?!
Michael “Not a zoologist” Guerin my beloved!!! We got Soft!Michael, Sassy!Michael, Genius!Michael, Heart Eyes!Michael, Soft Sweater!Michael, Nerd!Michael, we got ALL of the Michaels this episode! I am honestly flabbergasted Alex was able to look at Michael being all nerdy and adorable and looking SO good, and making eyes at him without jumping his bones! He is so giddy and excited and working so hard to find answers and I just love him so much. Him lifting the pieces of the radio up and putting them back together with his mind?! Following the bat trail and finding Deep Sky all on his own?! Calling Alex just to gloat about being right?! I am loving what we are seeing for Michael this season and letting him be smart and use that brain is exactly what I’ve been wanting and this episode delivered. Also we got Michael being like, “Oh noooo! something vaguely related to technology? I’d better call Alex right away!” Girl, we all know you just want an excuse to call Alex, and that’s very valid of you.
This deserves it’s own bullet point because did you see Michael in that sweater?! His arms look so buff? And his hair is so wild and soft looking?! If him and Alex don’t get at least one hug when Michael is in a soft sweater I’m going to riot.
OKAY, now that everything else is out of the way, lets talk about MALEX!! I have some other thoughts about their scene that will be in the not-sparking-joy post but that’s (as always) down to the writing. But GOD did Vlamis and Tyler deliver as always! I love that we got to see Michael having to explain how radio waves work to Jones!Max, but Alex leads with that information and you can just feel the way Michael lights up at that. We also got Michael reaching out, and then when Alex arrives asking directly and clearly for help. The growth we are seeing in that alone is so wonderful. And then poor Alex, thinking he killed all those bats messing around with the machine and thinking Michael will follow HIS trail instead of Kyle’s, only to realize that the two might be connected and the sheer panic that Michael is going to stumble on something dangerous. I am READY for them to be friends and to stop talking in circles (maybe a life or death situation will help things along next week?!), but I think we’re getting there. Slower than I think all of us would like, but it’s coming, I can feel it! Also, that phone call at the end was shot so well, with Michael leaving the message and switching to Alex listening to it and now I’m soooo excited to see what happens next week!
