okay things to think about future movie nights:

  • Scott/Sara getting invited to movie night as soon as they’re allowed to leave the medbay
    • they tease their twin relentlessly about the cuddling with the LI
    • they tell everyone embarrassing stories from when they were kids
  • Reyes getting invited to movie night
    • he’s not exactly sure if he wants to, some of the crew still side eye him pretty hard (this is doubled with Scott/Sara there, tripled if Ryder is in a relationship with him)
    • it turns out to be a very fun evening and the crew relaxes a little around him
  • Vetra invites Sid, who absolutely jumps at getting aboard the tempest
    • Sid tries to sit in between Ryder and Vetra if they’re in a relationship “Leave room for Spirits, Vetra.”
    • Sid and Scott/Sara bonding over being the left out sibling
  • Gil says he wants to invite Jill and the stipulation is she can’t talk about re-population or try to convince anyone to have kids
    • Gil promises she’ll be on her best behavior
    • She is not on her best behavior. she keeps showing people pictures of babies and ultrasounds like they’re her own
  • Peebee complaining that this is getting way out of hand
  • a second couch is needed
  • Casual!Ryder trying to act out things, everyone is begging them not to
  • Professional!Ryder getting asked constantly to reenact scenes with various crewmates
  • everyone arguing for a week beforehand about what kind of movie to watch. Lexi, Cora, and Jaal want an asari flick, Liam, Vetra, and Drack want action, Peebee always wants to watch the Blasto movies, Suvi wants to watch any and all versions of Planet Earth, Kallo likes the spaceship version of pimp my ride but he and Gil argue over 90% of it, and Reyes keeps lowkey offering pirate movies.
    • They eventually have to start a rotation

Consider this: Jaal wouldn’t rush to have sex with Ryder unprepared. He would talk to Lexi first to make sure he knows everything about how to keep them both safe and give Ryder the most pleasure.

Lexi is well-versed in human physiology, but is still learning about the angara. She would need a consult from an angaran physician who can provide her with all the details on their reproductive system.

This means at some point Lexi must have called an angaran doctor and said, “One of your people wants to bang one of my people. How do we make it happen?”

Okay but hear me out: 

Somewhere down the line, Ryder and Reyes decide to make things official, proceed to hear a million more king and queen/kings of Kadara jokes… 

then the Big Day gets here, Reyes is standing at the altar as Ryder walks up…and then they reach his side, lean in close, and whisper so only he can hear, 

“You look like you’re waiting for someone.”
