me, clinging to your rafters, screeching: DEX IS A CRYPTID

(for day 9 of @omgericzimmermann‘s 13 days of halloween: Supernatural Creatures/Monsters AU)

cryptid!dex inspired by and sort-of-but-not-really-requested by @dexthecryptid

(nurseydex ofc + “quiet they can hear us”)

“Uh. What are you doing?” William Poindexter is curled into a ball far too tiny to actually be his body, wedged between the green sofa and the wall with a stricken look on his face.

“Shh! Quiet, they can hear us!” He whisper shouts. His hand shoots out and wraps around Nursey’s ankle and, a quick tug later, Nursey is half on the floor next to Dex and half on the green couch.

“Okay.” Nursey says plainly. “This is cool and all, but why are you hiding behind the couch, dude?” Dex unwraps his fingers from Nursey’s ankle, slowly. For a fleeting moment, Nursey mourns the warmth, the contact.

“I dropped a pie.” Dex says, eyes closed tightly, and Nursey gasps.

“A fineable offense.” He whispers sagely and Dex nods tersely.

“I have twenty-four dollars and fifty-three cents in my bank account and I still haven’t finished Christmas shopping. Holster and Ransom are out there, somewhere; it’s either the sin bin or Christmas presents, and I have the feeling they’re more into instant gratification than anything.” Nursey laughs and struggles to quietly make himself more comfortable. His back is pressed against the corner of the couch now, legs encroaching upon Dex’s already-lacking personal space. He shoots Nursey a half hearted glare, but moves a little to make room.

“Hm. Quite a predicament.” Nursey says and Dex rolls his eyes. “Dropping a pie is, what, a two dollar fine?”

“Four, since it was peach. You know Bitty uses ‘only the finest Georgia peaches, Dex!’” He imitates. Nursey snickers.

“You sound like a cartoon character.” Nursey chirps and Dex shoves his legs but is grinning hard.

“Shut up, you dick.” Nursey puts up his hands in resignation. “Okay, but I made the pie, mostly, so should that shave off at least fifty cents?” Nursey takes a minute to ponder the fact.

“You could ask them?” He says, referring to the sin bin police in question. Dex’s eyes go wide.

“I told them I was getting my wallet.”

“Okay?”

“Two hours ago.”

“Oh.” Nursey’s eyes widen as well. “Evading fines is a taxable offense.”

“Yep.” Dex says, popping the ‘p’.

“Poindexter, you dumbass.”

“What! Sorry that I wanted to get you guys something nice for Christmas!” His eyes are closed again and he props his elbow up on Nursey’s shin. It hurts, a bit, but he likes the contact. “Fuck you guys, everyone is getting the ice off my blades for Christmas.”

“Dang, that’s worse than last year when you tried to knit everyone sweaters.” Dex shoves him again, harder.

“Dude, I gave Chowder and Bitty, like, the best fuckin’ sweaters known to man, sorry I didn’t have time to finish all of them.”

“I’m still holding out for that sweater, Poindexter.” Dex laughs loudly and it lights up the room. Nursey sighs.

William J. Poindexter!” A voice booms from the doorway. Dex’s eyes shoot open.

“Oh my god,” he groans, arm dropping before tightly gripping Nursey’s shin. His eyes are wide again. “Hide me, what the fuck.” He shimmies further into himself, pressing behind the couch tightly.

“Don’t think we cant’s see you!” Nursey hears Ransom shout. Then, he makes a snap judgement call and, against Dex’s protests, unfolds himself and stumbles up into Ransom and Holster’s line of vision. Both of them are wearing Samwell Men’s Hockey tank tops, black sunglasses, and red bandanas. Holster is cradling the sin bin in his arms like a newborn baby, or a wounded animal.

“Uh. Hey, guys.” Nursey smiles; he watches as their eyebrows rise above the line of their sunglasses.

“Hey, Nursey, have you seen Dex around?” Holster asks, walking towards the couch. Nursey does the same, as nonchalantly as he can, in hopes of keeping the pair from getting too close.

“Nah, I think I saw him up at the dorms a little while ago, though. Why?” Holster’s mouth sets to a tight line and he lifts his sunglasses, squints.

“I don’t believe you.” He says, bending a bit to be on Nursey’s level. Honestly, he’s a little intimidated, but the whole situation, how serious they’re taking it, undermines his fear. Ransom butts in.

“William J. Poindexter dropped a pie at 2:32 pm.”

“Two dollars!” Holster interjects.

“It was a peach pie.”

“Two more dollars!” Holster interjects again, slapping the back of his hand against his palm.

“It is now 4:17.” Ransom says and it’s in his captain voice, dear god.

“One additional dollar per hour it takes to pay the fine!”

“William J Poindexter owes the sin bin six dollars. There are four witnesses willing to testify.”

“Oh.” Nursey breathes. “Uh.” He reaches around to his pocket, pulls out his wallet. He pauses, looks at the d-men before him, pulls out a ten dollar bill. He bends over and drops it into the jar in Holster’s arms.

“Hm.” The pair make eye contact. “Allow us to deliberate.” Holster says and they begin discussing in hushed voices.

“We have decided to accept your payment on behalf of William J. Poindexter.” And then they’re gone.

“What the fuck.” Nursey groans dropping back down next to Dex. “I willingly signed up to be on this team, what the fuck.”

“Thanks, Nursey.” Dex laughs and begins to uncurl himself from behind the couch.

“No problem, man. Glad you’re not freaking out about me spending money on you, though.” He says, shoving at Dex’s shoulder. The other boy stretches his neck a few times and groans.

“God I was down there for too long.” Dex looks at Nursey thoughtfully. “But yeah, I dunno, I’ll just make it even. How about a brunch date?” Dex asks.

“How about a normal date?” Nursey fires back before he can think about what he said. Dex’s face goes blank.

“How about a normal date that happens to take place within the time frame typically accepted as 'brunch’?” Dex asks, the corner of his lips curling up.

“Hm,” Nursey pretends to think about it, as if his heart isn’t hammering in his chest so loud that he fears Dex might hear. “I think that would be a sufficient method of payback.” Nursey says with a sharp nod and puts his hand out for Dex to shake. The other boy rolls his eyes, grabs his hand, and pulls him forward before dropping a chaste kiss on his cheek, right below his left cheek bone. Nursey body goes warm, his entire face igniting.

“10 am tomorrow.” Dex says before leaving the room.

He doesn’t know who else to ask except Bitty. Help?

The reply comes almost instantly: come over. there are cookies.

Derek gathers his Moleskine, his favorite pen, Bleak House, and a pad of Post-It flags. If he’s honest, he’s going to end up playing Mario Kart with Holster. But he wants to pretend he’s going to the Haus to study.

Dex/Nursey | 1k | T+ 

Nursey had never found Dex attractive.

Sure he was an okay looking dude, but he really wasn’t what Nursey went for.

Dex was all gangly muscles, freckle covered skin and too big ears. A scowl that could freeze over hell and an air about him that was too rough and aggressive.

Nursey went for soft smiles, lean lines and eyes that you could melt into. Nursey had never seen Dex’s eyes when they weren’t clouded over.

And then one day after practise Dex grins, bright and happy in Nursey’s direction and it’s all over for Nursey.

[follow up to this Dex/Nursey ficlet]

They walk back to the dorms between rain showers, the backs of their hands brushing. Derek’s heart beats too quickly in his chest. He keeps swallowing, as though he can dislodge the ache of anticipation that sits tight against his throat.

It is very persistent.

They part to step around a particularly large puddle, and when they come back together Derek can’t tell if Dex’s eyes linger or his own. He wants to reach out, tangle their fingers together. Hold on and ask if this is–finally–it.

He doesn’t. He could–Dex basically invited him to…allow himself–but he doesn’t.

The world is gray around them, spring taking its time, until the sun dips below the clouds, above the horizon. It turns the water accumulated in the street and on the sidewalk gold. It turns Dex’s hair into something bright and burnished. It’s a color Derek associates with signs that say ‘Do Not Touch.’ Derek’s fingers itch.

“What’re your plans tonight?”

Derek blinks. “What?”

The corner of Dex’s mouth nearest Derek quirks up as he ducks his head. Derek catches it before the collar of his jacket obscures the view, and then Dex is shrugging and straightening. “Your plans, Nurse. For tonight. What are they?”

He’s got reading he should do, an essay he should at least outline. He was going to lie on his bed and read and think about Dex’s tapered fingers and the curve of his spine. But something changed at Annie’s; he’s not sure how to ask if the curl of those fingers and the dip of his spine are on the table now, Dex offering himself up as easily as the muffin he’d pushed toward Derek.

Derek swallows. “Nothing much. Thought maybe I’d just, y'know, go back to my room and chill.”

It makes Dex snort, the sound somehow fond and not cruel out here among the trees and wet grass, the sheltering sky above.

They’re quiet for a moment, nothing but the sound of their shoes on the pavement, traffic, a dog barking. Dex’s breath. Then Dex says, “Do you want to come back to my room?”

You gonna let yourself have other things you want?

Derek’s fingers curl against his palm, empty space wanting to be filled.

“Yeah,” he says, “yeah. That’d be good.”

Dex’s answering smile melts Derek like gold.

Nursey Week Prompt #6 - Dreamer.


Dex sucks in a sharp breath, arching his back slightly as a hot mouth slips across his jaw and sucks a mark into the corner of it. A warm palm presses against his right side, roving over his ribs and squeezing gently at his hip as it moves up and down in rhythmic strokes. Dex’s arm is wrapped around the expanse of broad shoulders, feeling a bicep flexing as the arm moves across Dex’s bare side, where his soft t-shirt has been rucked up.

Slowly, Dex begins to become aware of the slight scrape of stubble against his skin, the strength of thigh pressed in between his legs, the width of the hand curled over his ribs.

Huh.

So, Dex is in bed with a dude.

Nursey was sure Dex was asleep before he moved to sit up next to him.

“Babe? You awake?” Dex whispered into the darkness.

“Yeah. You ok Will?” Nursey asked, rubbing his eyes sleepily.

“Yeah.” Dex said unsurely. “I just…are you sure you’re ok with this? With us not having sex?”

“Of course I am Will.” Nursey said, pulling his soulmate close to him. “I love you.”

“Even though I don’t…even when we never will have sex? Because I’m ace. Like soulmates are supposed to have sex?” Dex asked nervously playing with the sheets.

“We don’t have to have sex Will. I just want you to be happy.” Nursey assured him. “Just because “soulmate sex” is so big in movies and tv doesn’t make it important”

“And poems,” Dex pointed out “There’s lots of poems about it too.”

“Yeah, but who cares about those? I’ll write new poems, better poems, about a soulmate bond without sex. Because it doesn’t matter Will. As long as your comfortable, I’m happy.”. Nursey said, wiping the relieved tears from Dex’s cheek as they fell.

“Are you sure?” Dex asked a moment later, hiding his face in Nursey’s arms.

“Absolutely babe.” Nursey said, and pressed a small kiss to his forehead.

My grand finale story for the 13 Days of Halloween fic-a-thon!

No joke, this entire story started because @omgericzimmermann was making Halloween icons and said, “Hey, the hex code for pumpkin orange is just one letter off from the color of Dex’s eyes.” And my brain said, “Oh, of course, because he is the Pumpkin Prince, son of the Queen of Autumn,” which of course led to rereading an ancient Scottish ballad and going on a Wikipedia spiral through Welsh mythology, and now here we are, almost 10k words later. Because of a comment about hex code.


Teaser: “Hello,” Derek called as he got out of the car, public-charming smile on his face. He walked forward, extending a hand. “I’m—”

“We’re not open to the public yet,” the man said, cutting him off.

“I’m, uh, actually from the magazine Discover New England and we were hoping we could do a feature story on your farm for our next issue?” He wasn’t really sure how that turned into a question at the end, but the other man’s continued glare may have been starting to have an effect.

“No.”

Derek blinked. He had honestly never been flat-out refused before. He renewed his smile. “Look, I’ve been looking for our cover feature location for three days, and this is absolutely the most perfect place I’ve ever seen. I can’t accept your ‘no’ without at least a token fight. Can I get you to take a look at a few of our past issues while I try to convince you? I promise not to take up more than fifteen minutes of your time.”

Dex continued frowning down at the man in his driveway. Had the Autumn Queen sent him? He was certainly pretty enough, but she tended to color-coordinate her court in shades of birch bark and autumn leaves, and this man was all brown earth and dew-silvered moss.

anonymous asked:

Was it just how the picture went, the one with the many characters, or was that certain band member of Dex's eyes were covered for a foreshadow reason? I've seen a few sneaky hints like that from artists all the time, and I just wanted to ask. >:3c
