Prompt: Silver and Flint, "Why are we whispering?" :)
thanks, laura! sorry i didn’t fill the prompt exactly bc i couldn’t get that as a line of dialogue to happen organically, and it’s probably not as funny as the prompt kind of implies :/ but still, hope you like it!
set during 3x9
“Why are we whispering?”
The horns finally stop blowing, and Flint absently says a silent prayer for the departed Mr. Scott. He always had a great deal of respect for the man, particularly now, after discovering who he’d actually been. His presence and guidance will be missed.
Around them, the Maroon villagers begin to mourn, and Flint watches them uncomfortably. He feels intrusive. But they make no move to conceal their hurt, openly weeping with each other, holding each other, comforting each other. Perhaps that is what rattles Flint so much. His own grief he keeps locked away, piling it on as the years go by in the dark, dusty corners of himself. The pile grows, but his frame stays unchanged, so it often feels like he might rip at the seams with all the loss he holds in him.
And yet, he can’t imagine acting the way these people do - publicly embracing their pain like this. He sees it with his own eyes, but it’s like watching birds fly: possible for them, sure, but utterly impossible for him.
Wouldn’t it be cool if fat girls could have romance plots in movies and television that weren’t played off as a joke? Because there’s really nothing original about “LOL It’s funny because nobody wants to love a fat girl!”

arm wrestled dum-e today. does it count as arm wrestling when his whole body is an arm? or is it just wrestling then
steve drew me, and then tony added dum-e to the sketch. nice to see them getting along.
this is just before the table snapped under us. that red stuff is blood from the nosebleed i got, and that white is when dum-e decided that spraying me down with the fire extinguisher would help with the nosebleed
