A fanfic idea I’m trying to write:
based off of this image (x)
Alfred has gone to the moon before. Ever since he was small, he always dreamed of flying to the moon and touching it. He watched the live footage of his people walking on the moon and his heart pounded. He wanted nothing more than to be one of the people to set foot on the moon. So, sometime after the first few successful Apollo launches, NASA allowed him to go up. He could take other nations along if they trained hard enough and understood what going into outer space involved. Alfred ended up bringing Matthew and Ivan along.
Ivan enjoyed messing with Alfred and would often create loud bangs to scare him. Alfred hated it, b/c it always reminded him of what happened in Apollo 13 and feared they’d get stranded in space.
Matthew was not a happy camper. He’d float around when they were attempting to sleep and mention how he couldn’t sleep, or missed landEarth, or how terrifying the vacuum of space was, all with a very annoyed look on his face.
When they landed on the moon, Alfred and Ivan walked around, while Matthew stayed in the space craft, waiting to pick them up. Matthew offhandedly commented on how the next time Alfred wanted to come to the moon, he should leave him out of it because he hated hitting his head on the walls. Matthew actually loved the trip and was grateful Alfred let him come, but it was terrifying for a person who had to learn everything about space in the span of a year when the other two had a decade beforehand.
As Alfred and Ivan walked around, Matthew eventually called down through the radio and told them that he had turned off their communications with ground control, so the radio only went one way and Alfred and Ivan could say whatever they wanted. When the two didn’t seem to get it, Matthew said, “Oh come on you love birds, It’s not gay if it’s on the Moon,”
Matthew was the first one to say that and from then on Alfred would use it constantly.
This is just a rough outline. I’m working on the finished drabble, but it might take me a while and I wanted to put it here while the idea was still fresh. I would adore it if someone could draw it too, but I might be hoping for too much. I’ll definitely post the finished drabble when it’s done, so stay tuned.
Unless it sucks, because then I’ll trash it.
