The first time he falls in love with Otabek Altin, he was sixteen years old.
Of all places, it was in Hasetsu. His fingers fumbled with the chopsticks in his hand, and the Kazakh took notice of it. His smile and his words were gentle, humouring, as he placed his hand on top of the Russian’s. Step by step, careful movements, a mother’s tutorial.
There had been something wrong with his heart right then; because just like his jumps on the ice, it flipped inside of his chest - it was a sensation all too powerful and consuming, unfamiliar and terrifying to the boy during the height in the Era of ‘What-the-fuckery’ of teenage years. He had to double check. Triple. Quad. At five his heart would wrench so tightly in his chest he had to excuse himself to leave.
He didn’t remember where he went.
It was somewhere on the ice when he found himself breathing steadily, his thoughts somewhere else. Somewhere where it was raining. It was always raining somewhere else.
“Oh Mutt darling, don’t even worry about Tank! He wouldn’t hurt a fly–would you, big boy?” “BI” “….Unless it landed on me, of course, then he would absolutely destroy it.” “B)”
Mutt has never been the shortest girl in the room before, but hey. Number One is 6′3 without her heels. ((Limousines have a certain amount of high-society pretention about them, even limousines belonging to the Duke. ;) Thus the evening wear haha)) ((I gotta figure out names for them they can’t just literally go by their car names. Can they?)) ((CAN THEY?? 8I))
like jackson was legit glowing and was being so giggly and silly and was hyping his boys up almost the entire time, it’s such a relief to know he’s pretty much 100% recovered and back where he belongs 💓💓💓
Oh my gosh, guys, you are so gooblegabbly sweet i just want to hug you all! *w*
Thank you so much for reading this comic, it was such a fun thing to do. I’m happy i decided to draw it, it was an exercise, provin that i can do long stories and actually finish them <tho that is a bullshite ending right there>
I am not done with the subject tho! This fanfic was so amazing, and many things didn’t get resolved, so i may do few one-shots focused on missed thingies ^^
(and answering an Anon there - Papyrus said “well, of course!” in response to his brother. He’s going to share his greatness with the world ^^)
