i don’t really ship them but here are some of my hcs! [more here]
dee is charlie’s emergency contact. it would have been mac, but most of the times charlie ends up in the hospital, it’s because of hurting himself from doing something stupid with mac in the first place. above all, though, despite the fact that she’ll grumble the entire time, dee is always the most reliable one when it comes to charlie.
ever since that one time they thought they accidentally ate human meat, they have monthly dinners too, except theirs are homemade and take place in dee’s apartment. dee cooks, while charlie brings flowers and sets up the table.
dee and charlie’s mom bonnie get along really well - sometimes bonnie invites dee over for tea. at first, charlie wasn’t on board with dee hanging around his childhood home, but he gradually warms up to the idea after seeing how much of a good mood it puts dee in.
when one of them sees that the other is angry or upset, they’ll go to the nearest pet store and pet some cats together to cool down.
they’re still very much into def poetry and they try to practice together once a week.
