Have we ever seen Danny cry tears? I'm worried we haven't. (This isn't about me wanting to make him suffer, someone told me crying can ease stress sometimes.)
No, I get it. Crying really is healthy, especially when you’re going through as much stress as this kid is. This was actually something I planned to address soon anyway.
The answer is no. There’s not a single time when Danny’s shown crying. He gets angry and depressed and sulks, but even in the flashback of when he goes to live with Vlad in TUE, we never see him cry. Jazz has cried. Jack has cried. Tucker has cried. Dani has cried. We even see Sam cry actual tears at one point. Danny, however, never does. He never even gets close.
And you’re right to be worried. Crying can relieve stress, anxiety, grief, and other negative feelings. There’s a reason our bodies do it. It’s part of our recovery system. Just like laughter or loud outbursts, crying helps us process and release emotions. While it sucks to be sad and crying is exhausting, it’s healthy for us. I can tell you I always feel better after a good cry.
Danny’s obviously not very good at handling his emotions, and that’s part of what leads him down that unfortunate road in TUE. He doesn’t want to deal with or face what he’s going through. He either represses negative emotions or deals with them by just getting angry and even aggressive. Unfortunately, he probably won’t listen to most people who try to help him with this. I imagine Jazz is the only one who’d have a chance, and even that’d take a lot of time.
It took me forever and a day but I finally got around to making gifs of some of my favorite animations from the Clarence episode, “Tuckered Boys.” Lindsay and Alex Small-Butera (Who also created Baman Piderman) were guest animators on this episode, and I think their work on it is both beautiful and visually stunning. These gifs really don’t do them much justice so I fully recommend seeing the episode for yourself if you haven’t already, it really is amazing.

But while Washington is attempting to adjust to a new relationship and a new living arrangement, the call of new heroes and a new mayor mean major changes for his professional life as well as his personal one. How will the balance of values fare when his new partners come to test everything he’s made of.
A/N: Things may seem a bit slow right now but if you’ve read Texas Time and Hero Time, I’m sure you’re well aware of what that means for the upcoming chapters ; )
Washington wasn’t exactly sure why Church seemed to practically manifest himself during circumstances that would make him completely unhelpful, but it was a talent that he ultimately had to acknowledge.
It was difficult to gauge what Tucker’s exact reaction might have been without Church’s input, but since it was there, Wash found himself being stared down by his partner, arms crossed and dissatisfaction radiating from him.
