They’re filming the penultimate episode when Erasmus throws a huge, shining spanner into the neat mechanism of Laurent’s show.

This close to the end, the on-camera small talk is finally giving way to more serious discussions about compatibility. Damen is meant to spend this afternoon asking each suitor in turn where they see themselves in five years, and what they really want out of life. 

Erasmus is first; he sits on the edge of the couch, set at an angle to the leather armchair where Damen is enthroned, and twists his hands together. He hasn’t looked this visibly nervous in a while. Damen has obviously noticed it too, because he bats a few sillier questions at Erasmus instead of plunging straight into the heavy topics. He has an instinct for people that makes Laurent wonder what kind of easily-swayed idiot Theomedes must be, not to see how wired Damen is for leadership.

When Damen poses the in-five-years question, Erasmus runs a tongue over his lips and colour fills his cheeks. He’s the only suitor who hasn’t yet kissed Damen at least once on camera, and Laurent approved of that on the basis that it maintained tension, but now would be a good time for a kiss if one is going to happen.

Laurent moves his eyes away from Damen’s mouth.

Erasmus says, still blushing, “This is hard to say. I think you’re incredible, Damen. Really. But–”

But?? rings in Laurent’s head like a struck bell.

Anyone else in a desperate mood for an intense, heartbreaking, heart pounding, angsty Voltron story of death and tears where you can’t stop reading till the end and after you finish you just sit there staring at the screen for a few minutes and later get it confused with canon because it was so good? Cause I am. I’m tempted to write it myself.

Coffee, Tea, or Hot Cocoa?: Neither, by itself. I do like peppermint mochas. 

Average Sleep Hours?: Somewhere from 6-12 hours. It depends on what I’m doing the next day, lol. 

Cat or Dog Person?: Cat. I’m afraid of dogs, I don’t like dogs. I have the word “dog” blocked on here so I see less of them, too. They are not cute to me. 

Favorite Fictional Character?: I’ve never thought about this before.

Why Did You Pick Your URL?: I struggled with this so hard…it took me a long time to think of one. I don’t even love it, honestly. It just works. It is a reference to the fact that I never share all of myself with anyone, even on here. I’m split up between multiple side blogs. The secrets are the dark. Halfway into darkness.

Last Movie You Watched?: Eurotrip

Last Song You Listened To?: I’m not sure honestly. It would have been yesterday.

Last Book You Read?: I can’t read. College ruined my ADD. Can’t focus worth shit on any book. I used to really like reading but now I don’t have the attention span for it. I managed to get by in college in the last two years without picking up a single book. 

Last Thing You Ate?: I haven’t eaten today yet. My guess would be the alcohol from last night. 

If You Could Be Anywhere Right Now, Where Would You Be?: Somewhere warm, on a quiet beach. Because then it’s not a beach. It’s a coast. I’m tired of being cold. 

What Time Would You Travel to If You Could?: I’d go way far in the future. 

That’s it. I tag @tiske, @midnightbutterfly13, and YOU.
