I ship both mainewash and tuckington super hard and sometimes i get to thinking
a au where maine doesn’t die, but it takes him a while to meet up with wash again.
like he needs time to heal somewhat, body and mind, and by that time wash now has this new team he needs to take care of, with a new guy he may or may not be dating
and maine gets there and just
wash has already mourned maine, and tucker has helped, and he just cant do it again
but maine has no where else to go so he stays with the blue team and he and wash become buds again but nothing else because wow wash and tucker are inseparable.
(meanwhile, red team gets super jealous that the blues have a walking tank so sarge gets to work right away)
then, plot twist, maine and caboose hook up because maine is big and strong and plays with caboose and oh no
