Honestly, Kieren is slowly warming up to the whole pun/ricknames thing and he’s getting better and better. Imagine him at Christmas, when Simon comes back from buying presents for them and he’s like ‘Mr Mon-ho-ho-ho is back to make the yuletide gayer than ever’. He probably thought about that for hours upon hours whilst Simon was away and was so proud of himself when Rick burst out laughing at his super lame joke.
YOU KNOW WHAT MY FAVOURITE THING IS. My favourite thing is Risen trying to impress each other. They all know what’s going on, but it’s the cutest thing ever so no one says anything. So Rick is reciting quotes from all of Simon’s favourite books whenever possible, and he and Simon learn art history facts to show off to Kieren when they take him on trips to galleries and museums. Also, Simon tries to accompany Rick when he’s doing exercise and he’s actually able to keep up with him after a while. Of course, Kieren loves that, but he’s also very glad that they don’t drag him along. Kieren and exercise? Not a good combination. He’s happy to rely on his fast metabolism and stay in bed a little longer whilst his boyfriends go out for a run.
