For the ship thing: sashea
there were two anons asking for sashea, so here u both are! thank you!! i might jump back into my cis girl au bubble for this because i just love MAP sashea so much (am i allowed to say that? idc i do love them a lot)
Who worries about how they will look when they’re older
Shea. Sasha has accepted that everyone ages and she’s able to appreciate the beauty in everyone. She is forever simultaneously confused and terrified by Shea’s bathroom and the hundreds of creams, foams, face masks and serums that litter the sink, floor and shower, and will forever question why a black girl in her 20s would ever need to use anti-ageing cream.
Who makes the mix tapes/cd’s
Shea. They’re normally full of happy, energetic dance tracks or 80s hits. Sasha absolutely loves them and will blast them on her drive to work in the morning.
Clings to the other during scary movies
Sasha. She gets pretty terrified of them, while Shea usually sits nonplussed and feeds herself popcorn while commenting on how dumb the scary movie narrative is.
“Don’t run back into the house, don’t run back into the fucking- ugh, these stupid fucking white girls I swear to God.”
“Are you still mad that the black girl died first?”
“YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I’M MAD”
(That evening ended with an angry discussion about how fucking racist the movie industry is, and culminated in Sasha driving them both to the bottle bank so they could take their anger on society out on some empty wine bottles together. )
Gets into the shower with the other randomly
Shea. Sasha never complains.
Flashes the other when they walk by after taking a shower alone
Shea, purely because she loves the fact it always winds Sasha up.
“We’ve been together six months, how come you still blush at this?!”
“You’re both wet and naked, how the hell do you expect me not to get flustered!!”
Initiates hand holding while the other is driving
Shea. She’s always grateful that Sasha drives her into work, even if Sasha’s old car got a few snooty looks on Shea’s first day. The looks were all met by a swift middle finger, ensuring that Sasha’s car never got any comments or looks again.
Secretly tries to touch the other in naughty places during public/family events
Shea. Sasha will give her about two warning looks before she finally gives in and they sneak off together for a suspiciously long length of time.
Asks weird questions in the middle of the night
Sasha. She’ll sometimes lie awake for long periods of time thinking about whatever’s on her mind at that moment. Shea will usually take none of it.
“What Hogwarts house would Jeremy Corbyn be sorted into?”
“Sasha it’s three o-fucking-clock. Please for the love of Christ try to get some sleep.”
“Hufflepuff, Sasha. He’d be a fucking Hufflepuff. Obviously.”
Asks “what are you thinking about?”
Shea, mainly because she never knows what’s going on inside Sasha’s mind and she’s usually quiet for long periods of time. Shea can get worried that she’s thinking twice about their relationship. Sasha never is.
Always has to be touching the other, (if either of them do)
Shea, but Sasha will always lean into her touch like a cat.
((i loved doing this one, tysm!!))
