8. Dessert // Nurseydex

« {Part 8 of my Valentine’s collection.} » 

a/n: In which Nursey is a sap. Basically I’m giving Nurseydex their Zimbits moment. Pie is involved.

“…You don’t know how to peel an apple, do you?”

Nursey whipped his head up to see Dex staring at him, an eyebrow raised. They were in the kitchen trying to make a pie for Ransom and Lardo’s birthdays, and it was going pretty okay—but definitely not thanks to Nursey. He’d been trying to peel the same apple for the last five minutes. “Um,” Nursey said. “Well, I’ve never had to, you know, peel stuff before—”

“It’s literally not hard,” Dex said. “I’d chirp you about how helpless you are, but I really just want to get this done. Let me show you.”

He stood at Nursey’s side, took the apple and the peeler, and started to demonstrate. “See?” he said, gripping the peeler tight in this long fingers. He shucked three long strips of apple peel into the sink and then handed the tool and the apple back to Nursey. “It’s not hard—you’re just incompetent.”

“Well thanks, that’s a relief,” Nursey said. Dex hip-checked him, and he hip-checked back.

“Since when are you so good at baking, then, huh Dex?” Nursey asked quietly after a moment or two of silence. “I remember you dissing baking back when we were frogs—”

“We’re still the frogs, Nursey.”

“Yeah, I know, I know. I just… Now it seems like more often than not you’re the one helping Bitty bake,” Nursey said. “What changed?”

Subject: Collab 

hey james, 

if you’re still willing to do a collab, we could do a ed sheeran song still. i’d be happy to come round and record with you for a little bit, i’m not fussed on which song. do you need me to bring my keyboard? also, your music is pretty good. i see your original content going somewhere. shame you’re egotistical and think taylor swift is overrated though. 

best, lily.

Subject: Re: Collab 

thanks evans. 

my number is 035828381 if you want to text me any extra details, and i’ll send the address of my flat from there. i was thinking of thinking out loud or perfect, so if you could learn both of them just in case that’d be cool. also bringing your keyboard would be good. also, i’m right. taylor swift is overrated. she’s repetitive as fuck. also i’m not egotistical. 

best, james.

“Wow Bits, I’m shocked and astounded to find you here, mooning over hot cop. Again.” Lardo slapped a covered takeout mug of cappuccino and a white paper sack on the counter. “You’re welcome.

Bitty frowned at the bag. “What’s this?”

Lardo pushed him toward the door. “A date.”

NCT as My Thanksgiving Memories

it’s thanksgiving! i have a lot of memories from when my family used to come over to my house for thanksgiving and stay for the weekend. my family is a hodgepodge of weirdos so i thought you guys would like this :)

Taeil: my step cousin playing in cat litter and poop outside, thinking it was just regular sand

Johnny: my sister after my cousin swatched her with a bullwhip, keeping quiet bc our uncle is scary when mad and she didn’t want my cousin to get a spanking

Yuta: our cousin’s girlfriend waking me my sister, and my other cousin up from our thanksgiving nap just to make us eat the apple fritters she made (“they weren’t even that good”)

Taeyong: my cousin getting an entire back tattoo of a lepracaun in memory of our great grandmother

Kun: all the cousins eating boiled peanuts and playing left 4 dead on our xbox until the game legitimately broke

Doyoung: all the cousins lighting bamboo sticks on fire and chasing each other with them while our moms yell helplessly in the bg

Ten: my aunt accidentally baking loose change into her macaroni casserole and never being able to live it down

Jaehyun: my two uncles eating all of my sister’s oreo dessert and then going out to buy the ingredients so she could make more for them

Winwin: our extremely skinny cousin eating a whole bag of jalapeño poppers and half a bag of chicken nuggets the night before thanksgiving and then eating nearly half the turkey by himself throughout the next two days

Jungwoo: that one moment of thanksgiving where all the bad influences of the family get to talking and all the kids slide into the convo to get a listen

Yukhei: all of the cousins and our grandma in a heated phase 10 competition

Mark: accidentally finding porn on my uncle’s tablet and then almost crying bc the ceiling lamp looks like a boob and *war flashbacks*

Renjun: all of the cousins heading to the flea market the morning after thanksgiving and bribing our uncles/dads to get us ranch flavored pork rinds, and then eating them on the way home with a disney playlist turned up (bonus: the van only had seven seats so everyone was sitting on somebody else’s lap) (“THE SEAWEED IS ALWAYS GREENER”)

Jeno: my uncle threatening to take his entire family back to florida immediately if his football team didn’t win (my cousin when everyone was rooting for the opposite team: “cmon guys i have a lot riding on this!”)

Haechan: half of the cousins bonding over how much they hate the other cousins and then completely forgetting about their hate as soon as the cousins arrive

Jaemin: the beanie weenies my mom makes that none of the cousins eat until saturday when that’s the only thing left in the house

Chenle: me and my cousin drawing all over our five-year-old cousin’s face and then guilty hiding when he starts crying bc he can’t get it off

Jisung: that one year everyone had a baby and all the cousins had to babysit them (also none of us knew who the babies were but like… took care of them anyway i guess)

Ok, guys. Real talk. I’ve just watched the new Great British Bake Off. Here are my thoughts:

  • I miss Mel and Sue, but I think Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig were adequate comedy replacements. Once they grow into the role, they’ll do well.
  • I miss lovely Mary, but Prue Leith knows what she’s doing. She’s an old-hand at TV food judging and it shows.
  • Paul wasn’t too big-headed after being the only member of the original team to stay on. He was very free and easy with those handshakes though.
  • It was fast-paced, but the first episodes always are.
  • The contestants are a nice bunch, much as usual.
  • But what really makes me ok with the show is that the style and editing are exactly the same. We have all the old innuendos and most of everything else that made me love bake off in the first place.
  • Downside: how many adverts do I have to sit through? I hope later episodes are better, because that’s 15 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. My God.
  • Honestly, though, they had me at “moist clutch”.

Welcome back, Bake Off. You’re a little changed, but I’ll happily keep on watching. Tone down those adverts though, will you?
