So I have been playing Comrades again, and finally made some progress. I was doing this quest and well after, Monica looked kinda troubled. And I was like wondering why for a moment, because she is always so excited and happy to make that meal for ya. Turned out, she served us black burned meat.
Dearest. There are no accidents and he would have found us one way or another. Everything comes full circle. Be grateful it was sooner rather than later. You’ll think it harsh of me to say so, but no explanation I offer will satisfy you. Please don’t be angry when I tell you that you seek resolutions and explanations because you’re young. But you will understand this one day. And when it happens, I want you to imagine me there to greet you, our lives stretched out ahead of us, a perpetual sunrise. But until then, there must be no contact between us. I have much to do, and you, my darling, even more. Please believe that I would do anything to see you happy. So, I do the only thing I can… I release you.
The worst part is that even though we haven’t spoken in months, even though she habitually ignored my texts so much that I just stopped trying, even though I know, deep down, that she doesn’t care about me anymore and that she probably has all new friends up in fucking Seattle…I still miss her. If she came back tomorrow and said “Hey Chloe, want to dress up like pirates and be stupid together?”, I would take her back in a heartbeat.
⭐“Gabriel’s smile goes funny when he sees, wavering on the edges. Jack has enough time to wonder what he did wrong before Gabriel drops his bag and sweeps Jack up in a hug that strains his ribs, Gabriel’s strength putting more pressure on bones than a normal grip would.”
“I fucking missed you,” Gabriel admits, face shoved in Jack’s neck, the wire frames of his sunglasses digging in Jack’s collarbone. He sounds damaged, like these four months apart injured something other than his body.”
He’s a canonically trans single father who clearly understands he and his son don’t always see eye to eye and acknowledges his son is having issues coping with his emotions and is having issues, and he’s put him in therapy to try and resolve them BUT also understands it’s his son’s choice to continue again because it’s best that Lucien makes that choice and isn’t forced into therapy if it isn’t helping.
He’s patient yet stern with his son and is doing his best as a dad and all I want is for him to be happy I LOVE GOTH DAD SO MUCH
