Deacon is simply “Dee”, while Charlotte is usually “Sugar Booger” in some form or another. He worked really hard to find the perfect mix of endearing yet irritating.
He learned the hard way, though, that he has to stick to using her code name “Bullseye” around the new recruits. A few of them overheard him using “Sugar Booger” and assumed it was her codename.
They asked for Agent Sugar Booger later on, and Deacon swore he could hear the sound of an Assaultron laser beam charging up as she made eye contact with him across HQ.
22) Does their work ever interfere with the relationship?
In a way - work is omnipresent in their relationship, it’s more about them learning how to manage it. There might be tiffs about how to do a thing, but they generally are of the same mind that a thing needs to be done.
It interferes in that work takes up a lot of space in their lives and post-game they kind of get pulled in different directions. They aren’t working side-by-side in the field anymore and they both miss it. It’s one of their first big "should we end this?” conversations because they can both feel things unraveling, and they do take a break but end up back together with clearer heads about how they can’t kill themselves for the job and they have leave to be a little selfish and take time for themselves.
25) How much time do they spend together? Do they share their feelings, or hold things in?
Once Charlotte decides that the Railroad is her best bet at getting into the Institute, they spend a hefty amount of time together. They both enjoy the camaraderie.
Charlotte holds things in until she feels it’s the right time to talk to express them, if she feels they’re worth expressing. The closer she feels to someone, the easier it is for her to express herself.
Deacon holds in his negative personal feelings until the last possible moment to express them. Positive is fine, those he can express - he’ll even hide his negative feelings wrapped up in a seemingly positive one, with some extra sarcasm. It’s something he works on post-game - feeling safe and aware enough to feel and express the negative feelings.
44) Are the comfortable with each other? Anything they have to have their privacy for?
They are! All the shit they’ve been through together, they’re pretty comfortable around each other. It’s hard to be embarrassed about a fart when the other person has watched you vomit for hours because of rad poisoning or watched you get knocked out cold by a piece of exploding super mutant femur.
headcanon time! so @deohsogay and i were talking and as we all know, vasquez is a giant fucking lesbian and has been out and proud since she was in high school probably and long story short, her gaydar is off the charts
so OBVIOUSLY she has alex figured out from the moment she steps into the deo. and at first she’s not sure if alex is just lowkey and private but then she realises wow alex does not know that she is in fact a giant lesbian
and this amuses vasquez to no end because alex is the gayest gay to ever gay in the history of gay, and she has absolutely no idea. and after a while it gets to vasquez and she cant hold it in anymore so their conversations go a little like this
‘vasquez i got a new motorbike!’ ‘gay’ ‘huh?’ ‘i said yay! how exciting!’
‘vasquez i went to the movies last night and saw this one with kristen stewart in it she’s so cool i really like her’ ‘lesbian’ ‘what was that?’ ‘thespian! you love actors!’
and when maggie shows up on the scene, you bet your ass vasquez hears all about the stupid, short, dimpled cop with shiny eyes who annoys the shit out of alex and vasquez is like oh my god she has a crush is this what it feels like to be proud of your children and she watches closely at the way alex smiles when maggie is around and she sees the way maggie looks at alex and she’s like ‘i give them three months and theyll be engaged’
‘it’s okay, vasquez i dont need back up, maggie’s coming with me’ ‘you are so gay’ ‘excuse me?’ ‘you sure youre okay?’
ANYWAY so after this back and forth for years, FINALLY alex approaches vasquez one day and is like ‘hey susan did you know that maggie and i are dating and also i am gay’
and vasquez goes OH THANK GOD! and she pulls out this huge fucking scrapbook and it’s called DEOh So Gay: The Gaygent Danvers Story by susan vasquez and it’s literally a scrapbook made up of sneaky photos she took of alex’s gayest outfits and also written down documentation of every time alex said or did something gay and alex is blushing and also laughing because she’s so happy she’s come so far and vasquez is a good friend and also maggie loves it and it sits on their coffee table for the rest of their lives
When Rhysand was under the mountain he would always mind-speak with the children and calm them down and pretend to be their imaginary friend so they wouldn’t feel so alone. He would play little games with them and Rhys would scratch his nose and then talk in their minds with a silly voice “Hey look! That big doof up there is picking his nose!” And the children would laugh because the feared High Lord of the Night Court was picking his nose and the children would say something back like “Oh wow he’s a doof! Those shadows can’t help him hide that he’s picking his boogers!!” And Rhys would feel happy because the children were less scared now and at least they saw him as a doof and not a monster

warnings → public indecency, dirty talk, a lot of teasing, jimin’s porn preferences, and boobs

The long time running game between you and your brother’s best friend started when you noticed his fascination with boobs—yours specifically. It was never supposed to amount to more than harmless flirting and lingering glances, but now, one year later, Jimin was ready to change that.
alternatively: Jimin and you play a game. the loser is fucked. metaphorically. literally. all the above??
→i had to split this into 2 parts rip (& in this work of fiction, jimin’s penis isn’t a jelly bean) happy 3 months !!
