I hate/love imagining Beckendorf being alive and just being a big bro to Leo and working together on projects. And Beckendorf is just so proud of his hyperactive Latino little bro when he tamed and fixed festus and when he found bunker 9 and I just... Ahh!! And then just being UNSTOPPABLE together with their machines. And Leo meeting beckendorfs mom (she's alive right?) and just... Yeeeess!!!
DON’T DO THIS TO ME THIS IS SO CUTE.
to add to that!!!!
charlie taking NONE of leo’s shit. ranging from “you can keep making dumb jokes, but i know you’re not okay” to “you thought that was funny, but it was super rude. go apologize to that person.”
that includes the “you know you don’t NEED to be in a relationship to be part of the gang, right? it’s okay to be on your own” talk. leo needed it from someone who maybe understood the whole ‘maybe i should just stick to machines and not people’ thing
LEO TEASING HIM ROTTEN ABOUT SILENA 8D
charlie/leo teasing each other about random things. “i’m surprised you can lift that drill leo, your arms are basically just. noodles.” etc
the nicknames leo would give charlie omfg. please imagine leo calling beckendorf ‘charlzilla’ just picture it
nyssa clunks them BOTH over the head with a wrench when they’re annoying her and they both just mumble “sORRY….”
leo telling charlie about his mom eventually–after charlie notices the tapping out in morse code leo constantly does. he understands enough of it to get the message, and asks. leo is embarrassed but tells him anyway. after that leo gets a random invite out to the beckendorf household for the next big holiday. it’s a nice few days for him there.
and now i’m stuck thinking about how after the gaea battle, charlie would never be able to watch fireworks.
how he’d have to tell their siblings that festus is gone, that leo isn’t ever coming home
he doesn’t let himself cry about it openly, but he’ll vanish to the bunker on his own on the bad days and come back with suspiciously red rimmed eyes and a roughness in his voice

Happy happy (early) birthday to the wonderful @rizascupcakes!! Hope you have an amazing day! Sorry this is 100% not what I started out with but then that one little line exploded into this huge tangent cuz I when read it I couldn’t help but wonder what happened the first time Roy attempted that, which in turn got me thinking about how different Riza’s experience might have been and I just ;____;
