Wee Shaun annoying Faraday and Chase is one of my favourite mental images, actually. DiMA is just kind of oblivious and benevolent and Shaun runs to him if anyone else finally gets pissed off with his antics.
Authors Note: Here is the sneak peek to Styles & Co part 9. It is a short sneak peek because everything else would give away what happens in the chapter. Xx
“It seems so peaceful out there.” My eyes continue to gaze over the view thoroughly, taking in the beautiful detail and picturesque scenery offered, from the rigid cerulean mountains to the shadow the mountains cast over the scattered villages — almost as though the mountains are nature’s shielding casings for the settlements before them.
Harry’s arm benevolently encloses itself around my waist, a small kiss becoming pressed to my cheek.
“It does, it’s a lovely view, I love the colour variations between the landscapes, how the colours elegantly dip and transition. It is remarkable.” He agrees with the sense of peacefulness the distance emits. “Tell you what else is lovely?” He begins with a slight chuckle,
“You’re about to say something incredibly cheesy and cute, aren’t you?” I smile, my eyes turning to gaze at him, his view being one of my all time favourites. I can never get enough of his features, his blue-green eyes that sometimes turn to grey, his pink lips, or even the way his nose crinkles at times.
He shrugs, his eyes moving back towards the landscape before us, “I was,” he nods, “But since you just outed me, I will refrain from my comment.” He continues as I lean into him, his arm becoming tighter.
“I want to hear it,” I gently poke at him,
“Nope, are you ready to go back down the trail?” He questions and I nod, taking one last look at the view before I move from Harrys embrace and begin to step away from the edge.
“You coming?” I turn to smile at Harry, holding out my hand. I observe as he timidly nods, his hand fidgeting in his pocket. “Harry?” I narrow my eyes onto him and he catches onto my glare, he makes his way closer to me and takes my hand, his fidgeting making me curious. “Why are you fidgety?” I softly question as we begin to walk back down the trail.
“Uhm,” ..“Sorry, love. I couldn’t help myself and quickly checked my phone.” he clears his throat, seeming a little apprehensive and nervous. I shrug it off and kiss his cheek, assuring him I am not mad — if that is what is making him timid and nervous.
My eyes stay focused on the rocky trail while I continue to admire the surroundings I missed on the way up the trail. Harry’s voice distracts me at a distance and it takes me a moment to realise he isn’t right beside me, again.
“Elise, wait a second.” He affectionately calls,
“This is the third time-” I begin as I stop in my tracks and turn around, immediately freezing when my eyes coincide with his.
tbh this is actually an issue that ds9 has a lot? like a lot of their villains and villain-ish characters work best if they don’t seem evil, interpersonally? like they should be charming, benevolent, and harmless seeming. and they pull it off really well with dukat, and……. inconsistently, with weyoun and other vorta, but they really fail at it with winn, and they failed at it with garak too back when they were trying to write him as an Evil Spy.
shout-out to the benevolent muscle men from mob psycho 100
when mob joined the body-building club, it felt like his presence there was gonna be a punchline, but the benevolent muscle men took him in with open (burly) arms. they’ve never made fun of him nor bullied him nor teased him for being so physically weak… they’ve always treated him as an equal and looked out for him and protected him and cheer him on as he grows… they don’t even pick on the nerds in their equipment classroom. thank you, benevolent muscle men. thank you for your kindness, patience, and sportsmanship.
I’m truly baffled by people who react so negatively to news of others trying to make things easier or better. Especially when their reasoning is that THEY did it the hard way, the real way, they worked three jobs and never got any help and suffered (oh god did they suffer)
I mean, god, you’d think someone who walked fifteen miles to school uphill both ways in the snow would be the first to advocate for a bus route
We should not have a woman as president because women are pure and virtuous and angelic. We should have a woman as president because women are people who make up more than half of the US population, and because women deserve to see themselves represented in our representative government.
