Connor loved Evan’s hands. He loved holding his hands, he loved when Evan ran his hands through his rats nest of a hair. He loved the soft touches Evan would give him. He just loved Evan’s hands so much. “Can you paint my nails?” Evan had asked one day.
“What?” Connor questioned. The two were laying in Connor’s bed, Evan’s hand running up and down his arms, sending tingles through his body. “You love my hands,” Evan stated. Connor blushed. “So will you paint my nails?” Evan asked again.
“I-I mean of course I will, but I’ll s-steal um…Zoe’s blue, blue will suit you more than my black nail polish,” Connor muttered as he removed himself from Evan’s grasp. Connor was still blushing at the fact Evan had noticed Connor’s fascination with his hands. He didn’t think it was that obvious.
Connor barged into Zoe’s overly purple room, and was happy to see she wasn’t there. He rooted through her makeup bag of nail polish until he found a nice sapphire blue colour. Placing the makeup bag back in it’s usual spot, Connor made his way out of the room and back into his. “Sapphire blue, will definitely suit you,” Connor smiled softly.
Placing Evan’s hand on his knees he began to use soft strokes to each of Evan’s nails. The blue did suit him so well. Connor switched hands and began painting the nails on that hand. “It looks good on you,” Connor told his boyfriend.
“Now let me repaint yours,” Evan said. Connor shot Evan a look, his nails still had pieces of black chipped nail polish on it. “Your hands are lovely too Connor, they need an update on nail polish,” Evan said. He stood up and made his way to the door.
“Where are you going? And be careful! Your nails are still wet!” Connor called after him. Evan made his way into Zoe’s room, he was on a mission. Connor needed a new colour for his nails. Black was just so dreary, and Connor was a bright shining star in Evan’s life. Grabbing the nail polish remover, and a simple green colour, he left Zoe’s room and headed back to Connor’s.
“Green?” Connor questioned as Evan placed the bottle on the bed. Evan nodded as he uncapped the nail polish remover. “She didn’t have any yellow, so green was the second best,” Evan took Connor’s hands into his own and smiled at the softness of them. Evan loved how Connor seemed to adore any simple touch Evan would give him.
Once Evan finished cleaning off the nasty chipping black nail polish off Connor’s nails, he began to start putting on the green nail polish. He wasn’t as good as Connor was at painting nails but he did okay. “It’s…Nice,” Connor smiled softly, having a colour other than black on his nails was different but not unwanted.
Once his nails dried Connor reached out and took Evan’s hand, stroking the top of it with his thumb. “I love you,” Connor smiled, feeling the softness of Evan’s hand was comforting. “I love you too,” Evan smiled as Connor’s thumb continued to rub circles on his hand.
(also i couldn’t find laura’s height but i’d guess that she’s around 5′8″ or so) (also ben’s imdb says 5′10″ but i call bullshit on that cause he tweeted about being 5′9.25″ once so i just took that and rounded it out)
what i mean: i’m happy that in the closing number of The Book Of Mormon they reference the fact that Connor McKinley overcame his internalized homophobia however I think it would’ve added a lot to the story and McKinley’s character if there was some sort of Turn It Off reprise in which we could see him going through this emotional change. It is literally established that this man has vivid, traumatic nightmares regarding his sexuality every night. It would’ve added a lot to the production to witness him change his worldview as he begins to doubt the existence of god and the legitimacy of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. And lets talk about Kevin. Did Kevin’s arrival at the mission center influence Connor’s worldview? I mean obviously the nonsense that Kevin, Arnold, and Nabalungi started prompted Connor to question the legitimacy of what he’d been told his entire life. But he also tried to kiss Kevin after the general shot that guy. Like he just tried to kiss Kevin and it’s never acknowledged again. How big of a role did Kevin play in Connor’s emotional development? Why don’t we get to see it happen? Connor was in serious denial about his sexuality since 5th grade, is he okay?
Connor is hurting. I’m not defending him for having sex with Thomas but I understand why. Oliver hurt him so he hurts Oliver. I hate that I’m saying this but Connor deserves better. How can Oliver keep question Connor’s love? The way Oliver has treated Connor has just been horrible and unfair. If anyone has been using the other as a security blanket it’s not Connor it is him. I don’t get what Oliver was thinking. Did he really think that they could continue having sex and just ignore everything, go back to how they were? Their relationship is beyond a mess. I don’t know how it can be fixed.
Ughhh can you do #7 with Connor Evan and Jared first kisses? Cause consent is important even in kissing and stuff and I'm a sucker for asking to be kissed!!!
Whenever the prospect of kissing his boyfriends came into Evan’s mind, his hands got sweaty. Not that he wouldn’t like to kiss both Jared and Connor, he totally would love to kiss them. But kissing made him anxious and he just couldn’t bring it up.
“Hey you okay Evan?” Jared questioned, noticing his boyfriend’s stiff movements. Evan nodded as he wiped his hands on his pants, hoping the swear would go away. “Nervous?” Connor questioned as he traced circles on Evan’s palm. Evan pulled his hand away and wiped that one oh his pants as well, it was weird having his boyfriend touch his palm when it was sweaty.
“I-it’s just I wanna kiss you both,” Evan admitted. All three of them sat upright and Connor and Jared were shocked. Evan never brought up anything more intimate than kissing. “C-Can I kiss you, both of you?” Evan questioned quietly.
Jared and Connor both nodded, and Evan gave them a shy smile. This would be his first kisses ever. With his first boyfriends ever and he was a jumble of nerves. He could feel the excitement bubble in his stomach. Jared leaned in and kissed him. It was quick, soft, loving, and everything Evan could ever imagine. Connor smiled at his boyfriends, they were dorks. “I-I” Evan couldn’t even get the words out. “I know,” Jared said, simply.
Evan turned to Connor. “You-you’re okay with this,” Evan asked. Connor nodded as he moved closer to his boyfriend. He lightly grabbed Evan’s blue shirt and pulled him closer. Connor’s kiss was more passionate, more rough around the edges, much like Connor as a person. “W-wo, I-” Evan still couldn’t get the words out. This was something he dreamed about for weeks.
“Well, can I kiss you babe?” Jared gave a small laugh as he turned to Connor, Connor smiled. “Of course you can Jared,” Connor nodded. Jared leaned in and kissed Connor, god he loved both of these boys so much. When they pulled away the three boys were smiling.
