icelandic whaling

Dennor au where Mathias adopts a baby Emil and loves him so much and he doesn’t understand how anyone could ever give him up so when Emil is older he promises to avenge him and find his former guardian to shove in their face how perfect Emil is (which Emil is opposed to but Mathias doesn’t listen to him) and the last listed guardian of Emil is this Lukas guy so Mathias goes to find him and when he does he’s surprised that he’s so young (like how old was he when he got some girl pregnant?) and he’s just sitting behind the desk at the library where he works and Mathias storms up and delivers some huge speech about what a big mistake Lukas made giving up his kid like that and Lukas just throws a book at Mathias’ head and hisses about how Mathias doesn’t know anything about him or his brother and then he rolls out from behind the desk and Mathias is like oh shit because Lukas is in a wheelchair and Emil is his brother and what is happening??? And he pesters Lukas to no end with apologies and questions until he finds out that their family was in a car crash and their parents died and Lukas tried but couldn’t take care of Emil because he was paralyzed from the waist down and it was too hard so he had to give him up to an orphanage and while this is happening Mathias slowly falls in love with Lukas and he invites him to come back and live with him and Emil and Lukas shyly accepts and Emil and him are super awkward at first but then they get along super well and they just become a big happy family the end
