Ignore the Ignorant | Renly & Tommen | May 13th
Renly really liked brunch. It combined all of his breakfast foods into a meal that was actually late enough in the day that it wasn’t completely frowned upon to couple with alcohol, and his weakness for champagne meant mimosas were especially attractive to him. It was also late enough where he could still technically sleep in on a sunny and warm late spring morning.
It was the kind of day he’d have loved to spend with Loras, but the nature of their relationship meant he would never get to take him out for brunch, or anywhere really, at least without the pretense of work. It was hard to pass off a lazy Sunday as work. So instead Renly had to satiate his desire to try every last one of London’s best brunch locations through other avenues, and Tommen had given him the perfect excuse.
On his cab ride over to Number 10, he flipped through his nephew’s text messages from the day before. He had said he’d wanted to talk about something from his time with Loras earlier. Loras had seemed a little flustered when they’d first met up with Renly on Friday, but he had shrugged it off to his usual aversion to kids. Now Renly was curious…and a little worried.
The driver pulled up across the street and Renly hopped out, sending Tommen a text to let him know he was downstairs, not wanting to have to go through security to get in…but really, it had more to do with not wanting to risk running into his brother.
I Always Said You Could Rely On Me | Tommen & Renly | June 5th
It had been a long week. Not an entirely terrible one, but stressful, and busy…so busy, and it wasn’t even close to over. It was only Tuesday. He had spent every possible moment since Robert lost the vote meeting with Labour MPs, trying to secure votes. It was a strenuous process that involved plenty of research, and more false promises, lunch dates, and forced small talk than he ever thought possible. The work was worth it though, considering he would be turning in more than enough signatures to start the leadership contest tomorrow, and the efforts meant he had a jump start on pulling in the votes required to win. Robert had warned him that Stannis planned on running as well, but Stannis’ name was not one that had been mentioned often during his meetings.
His confidence in his own success could not be higher. He was doing the right thing, at the right time, and it was all going according to plan. Soon he’d be the head of Labour, and then he’d be the Prime Minister, and shortly after that he’d be Loras Tyrell’s husband.
He was practically beaming as he entered his office, until he lay eyes on who await him. Tommen…suddenly the collateral of his actions was all too real, and sitting right in front of him. He had completely forgotten he had agreed to let Tommen study at his offices. Not that this was a problem, he just didn’t have much warning, his secretary must have forgot…not that he could blame her, his staff had been as busy as he was over the past few days.
Renly didn’t want things to change between him and Tommen. He didn’t rightly know how this decision would change the family dynamic outside of his brothers and himself, but it would be within Robert’s power to forbid his children from seeing him, and that was the last thing he wanted. He pushed the fears aside, it wasn’t something he was going to worry about now, there was nothing that could be done. Instead he greeted Tommen with a warm smile, and crossed to his own desk chair, “Hey Tommen, how’s the studying coming?”
Working 9 to 5 || Margaery & Tommen || 23rd July
[Margaery is biting her lip her forehead furrowed as she concentrates on her computer screen. Hearing to door to the open plan office open she looks up and smiles brightly as Tommen approaches his desk opposite her. Margaery has got to like having him in the office over the last month.]
Morning! [She smiles nodding towards the pile of papers on his desk] Some more filing I’m afraid.
