I’m finally deciding to post a little bit of writing :D
This is just a short concept I wrote for a TEW fic I was starting to write and wanted to be a bit long; idk where this part would fit in just yet cuz I haven’t gotten to this scene, but I really wanted to write it
Oh the name of the fic is going to be “A Funeral for the Living” and I haven’t decided if I’ll post it here, but if this little piece gets good attention and feedback, I think I might submit it in parts c:
~Standing up in front of the empty coffin preparing himself to give his so-called eulogy, he was suddenly reminded of the time he realized Joseph was his best friend. It was a few months after their partnership was assigned and thus far they had been on quite a few assignments together. Sebastian had always been more of the lead when they were in the field. There was one particular time when they were closing in on a lead for a serial killer they’d been tracking for over a week. When they were basically right on his tail, he pulled a gun on them, not unusual for a violent criminal, obviously; this time however, Joseph had taken charge, taking a confident step forward as he confronted the man. His step was a clear attempt to shield Sebastian in case the man tried to take a shot at them. After they had gotten him into custody, took him to the station and met in one of their offices to work on the report, Sebastian confronted him about the action. “Joseph,” he started, causing Joseph to look up from his papers. “Why’d you do that, back at the scene?” Joseph looked at him blankly for a few seconds, seeming not to know what he was talking about. “You,” Sebastian paused, “protected me.” Joseph’s expression changed, realization it looked like. He reached up to push his glasses further up the bridge of his nose before replying. “I’m your partner, Seb, I want you to be able to rely on me as well.” He spoke casually, as if it was just any old small talk. He looked back down at his papers after their exchange and Sebastian looked at him, pleasantly surprised, a small smile forming on his face. Recalling that now, looking upon the faces of his colleagues and peers stricken with a false sense of grief, he felt as if he had to hold back tears.
I can’t help but think back to when Con tweeted this. I actually gasped in front of people who had no idea of my infatuation with these two. I had to play it down. Back then their friendship seemed to be growing still and they had really just been spotted a few times hanging out alone. Then this happened. We knew Connor was traveling somewhere and the (very small) fandom joked about him going to Australia to visit Troye. When Con tweeted this the whole fandom broke down. It was actually pretty funny. But we knew not to press our luck. We still tried to remain open-minded that maybe they were just friends. Connor wasn’t even out on YouTube yet. My point of this rambling post is that if you were to tell me back in October of 2014 when this happened that Connor would be joining Troye as he toured Europe I would have laughed. And yet here they are…
