July 20th, day 5 nurseydex week prompt: hurt/comfort

[SORRY THIS IS SO LATE GUYS it was a long day]

“I’ll be back later,” Dex tells him, slinging his bag over his shoulder. No practice today, but Dex has an early class. Normally he doesn’t mind morning classes – years of working and living in Maine enforced an early to bed/early to rise mentality so fierce he can’t knock it even on off-season. Not even for Christmas. But he’s making a bit of an exception today and allowing himself to want to stay at the Haus, in bed with his boyfriend. Because it’s Nursey. And for Nursey, he’ll always make an exception.

okay so i’ve gotten a lot of requests to do a retold fairytale about pocahontas, which is a really reasonable thing to request since i’ve done so many retold tales about disney movies, but here’s the thing

pocahontas the movie is easily one the most messed up things that modern media has ever produced, and i’ll belt out color of the wind like nobody’s business, but that doesn’t change the fact that disney took a history about lying, abduction, rape, and torture and … turned it into a love story. which. what. who thought that was a good idea???

so. look. this is the only retold fairytale i have in me for pocahontas. i know it’s not what anyone who requested this actually wanted, so. sorry.

we’ll keep disney’s aged up premise and characters, because the truth is just too sad to touch at all. we’ll keep pocahontas as her name, because it wasn’t her real name (her real name was matoaka).

okay here we go

we have pocahontas, the young daughter of chief powhatan. she is spirited and flighty, having no fear of jumping off waterfalls or any other manner of dangerous things. what does she fear? growing up, responsibility, having to be a grown woman in her tribe and all that that entails, of being forced into a marriage she doesn’t want.

she grew up with kokoum, she knows him, he is a good man and a strong man, he will provide for her everything she could need or want – but she doesn’t think that’s a good enough reason to marry him. he’s a good leader, he’ll probably be elected to replace her father when the time comes, and she will move on from being the daughter of the chief to the wife of the chief.

something in her rankles at being the daughter of, the wife of, to being just ‘of’ anything.

seriously though you can say what you want about the Frozen arc, but remember when Elsa and Hook hung out and talked about Emma and worried about Emma and were there for Emma and helped her accept herself and were just #TeamEmma all the way

and also developed a friendship of their own which was a bit snarky and a bit teamwork-y and a bit technophobic and completely devoid of jealousies or hints of love triangles or other silliness and therefore rather awesome

Frozen Hook aka Team Emma aka please sir I would like some more

  • Clawhauser: Hi, Madame Assistant Mayor!
  • Bellwether: What do you want?
  • Clawhauser: Listen, I need to ask you something?
  • Bellwether: What?
  • Clawhauser: How do I know if a guy likes me as more than a friend?
  • Bellwether: If he is smart, handsome, strong, and good at heart you mean?
  • Clawhauser: Yeah!
  • Bellwether: Well, if it's YOU I guarantee he doesn't, unless he's also blind to how grotesque you are.
  • Clawhauser: You... think I'm ugly?
  • Bellwether: As ugly as they come.
  • Clawhauser: [fights back tears and runs away]
  • Bellwether: Heehee.
  • [Bogo appears]
  • Bogo: Ahem. Do you need something?
  • Bellwether: Not right now, Chief Bogo.
  • Bogo: Why is it that every time I see you with Clawhauser you're telling him insensitive lies and making him cry!?
  • Bellwether: Because he's a predator and predators are mean and deserve to get their feelings hurt now and then.
  • Bogo: First of all, that is INCREDIBLY prejudiced. Secondly, even if we assume the premise is fact, Clawhauser has done nothing. Why not pick on Lionheart instead.
  • Bellwether: Because that's different. Lionheart might... he might...
  • Bogo: He might... retaliate?
  • Bellwether: Right.
  • Bogo: Bully. Coward.
  • Bellwether: What about you? You're a huge bull picking on a tiny ewe.
  • Bogo: I'm not picking on you I'm trying to protect my... friend.
  • Bellwether: Well if you want you can go tell Clawhauser that you're in love with him.
  • Bogo: But I... I never said that.
  • Bellwether: You said I told Clawhauser an 'insensitive lie' and let's be honest here we both knew he was talking about you.
  • Bogo: I only heard you say he was ugly.
  • Bellwether: You don't think he is?
  • Bogo: No, I think he's irresistibly adorable.
  • Bellwether: I rest my case.
  • Bogo: Oh yeah, so what if I am? At least I have the common decency to not treat a precious little angel like complete and utter crap just to stroke my own racist ego!
  • Bellwether: At least I'm not going gaga for a PREDATOR.
  • [Later]
  • Bogo: Clawhauser?
  • Clawhauser: Yes, Chief?
  • Bogo: You are not ugly even a little bit at all period. Bellwether is just a big jerk.
  • Clawhauser: Really? So does that mean a smart, handsome, strong guy who's good at heart may indeed like me as more than a friend?
  • Bogo: It is... definitely... possible.
  • [Clawhauser glomps Bogo causing the latter's face to heat up]
  • Bogo: ...Definitely, definitely... possible...
