so I’m too much of a lazy shit to actually write this prompt, but I’m just imagining Michael and Gavin baking Christmas cookies - and a LOT of them. Like Gavin will do everything in his power to fuck with Michael as he’s trying to measure out flour and sugar and roll the dough and make the icing.
Michael begins carefully measuring out a cup of flour (because baking is exact, or so the Food Network says) and Gavin is like right by his ear staring as he begins to pour the flour and level it out going, “Tease it… Michael, tease it…" and Michael fucks up and turns on Gavin and is like "God damn it, Gavin, you fuck!" and Gavin is just giggling like an idiot and running out of the kitchen while Michael threatens to throw the now spilled flour all over him.
Then once the cookies get done and are on a cooling rack and Michael’s whipping up another batch of a different kind, he’ll hear “you’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch” play from the living room and he’ll say, without turning his back, “keep your fucking hands off the cookies, Gav” and Gavin will pause with his hands just inches from the cookies and look crestfallen and mutter “damn” and Michael will sigh and pick up a cookie and hand it to him and be like “your heart isn’t even three sizes too small, you idiot” and Gavin will grin and kiss Michael on the cheek and squawk as he runs back into the living room.
And on the last batch of cookies Gavin comes back in to help Michael (seriously this time) and instead of actually baking these they end up having a huge food fight with Christmas music blaring in the background and there’s icing on the floor and cabinets and flour in every nook and cranny and cookie dough on Michael’s cheek and on Gavin’s nose (because come on, ain’t nothing going to miss that honker) and Michael won’t even have the strength to be mad at Gavin because he’ll see how dirty the both of them are and they’ll just collapse in a heap in the floor and laugh and point at one another and be like “your face, Michael” “your NOSE, Gavin” and they’ll share sweet kisses while “The First Noel” plays sweetly in the background and Michael will sigh because while making these cookies tired him out he has Gavin to collapse into at the end of the day and that’s all that matters because Gavin is all Michael ever wants for Christmas and he’s all he’ll ever need.
