I dreamed this last night and woke up with my heart hurting, so uh… here’s some fic for you? Pure spec and completely not how s7 is going to go at all.
There’s a girl at the door.
Henry pauses at the foot of the stairs, keeping his grip tight on Lucy’s hand; strange that two weeks ago he had no idea she even existed, but now she’s the most precious thing in his life; he’d do anything to keep her happy and safe.
This must have been what Mom felt like after he found her all those years ago.
The girl is tracing the letters on Killian’s door, light glinting off the jewels in the small braids woven through her long, curling blonde hair. When she turns, hearing Henry’s footsteps on the stairs of the porch, he can see she can’t be old enough to have driven here; maybe fourteen or fifteen? Old enough to be out without supervision, but young enough that Henry doesn’t like the thought of her out alone.
More new feelings awakened by fatherhood.
“Henry?” the girl asks, peering at him curiously.
He looks at her skeptically. Something about her red jacket looks familiar, and the cautiously hopeful look in her blue eyes, but he can’t place it. When he tries to pin it down, the memory slips away like an eel. “Please don’t tell me you’re also my daughter, you look too old for that.”
She grins and that also looks maddeningly familiar. Lucy drops Henry’s hand and shoves him forward, making him stumble. “No, she’s your sister.”
Henry’s jaw drops, old, buried memories of Mom’s pregnancy and a blonde toddler rushing back. No wonder he hadn’t been able to place her, he hasn’t seen her since… well, since before he met Ella. “Cassie?”
Her mouth sets in a line. “CJ,” she states firmly. “It’s been a long time, big brother.”
You know damn well Dan and Phil cuddled for the rest of the night when Dan went over to use his washing machine. And you also know Dan rarely ever left Phils flat because the uni dorms were lonely and cold and felt like a jail cell. I’d say they fucked that night too but y'know… sometimes cuddles are better than kisses.
Nelson: call me THE PURPLE NINJA Lloyd to one of the nurses: is this child up for adoption
He’ll be like “I’m just doodling” and before he knows it he’s drawn this massive flawless landscape that people would sell their soul for
“Haha Kai I drew an ugly picture of you” *shows Kai the most beautifully detailed picture he’s ever seen, better than any selfie he has ever taken*
“Honestly who in the hell thought pea green was a good colour. It’s so ugly. Like, how am I supposed to jump out at bad guys in this ugly suit? Ooh, be careful guys!! Pea boy might set his entire allotment of vegetables on you!! I’m so scared!!”
“Lloyd remember when you had a bowl cut” “how did any of you not shave my head"
Oh him and Kai being best bros?? Completely platonic best bros?? Brothers?
I put this in the tags of something I can’t remember but consider: Kai lost his father and he did have his sister, so he wasn’t alone, but he never had someone who he could rely on as a dad. He had to step up and be that himself. So when Lloyd loses his dad, he steps in and acts like the big brother Lloyd always needed because he would’ve wanted someone to do the same for him. And being his bro means he can be an older influence he can trust to take care of him without making him feel as if he is replacing his dad
cause let’s be honest Kai will stay up with him until the morning looking at all possible ways to get his dad back
That makes it sound like Kai is responsible but he is not ajdjsj
“Hey Lloyd I just bought a giant bottle of coke and 7 packets of mints, wanna see how many we can put in the bottle before it blows up?”
Lloyd can be the ultimate wingman or the bane of his existence when it comes to Kai trying to flirt with someone
Anyone: you’re so smooth Kai ;) Lloyd: that’s what you think. Yesterday when he was sleep deprived he tried to hit on a movie poster and when they didn’t say anything back he cried.
One time when Lloyd was still a shorty Kai woke up in the middle of the night and turned over to see Lloyd standing by his bedside just staring at him and Kai screams so loud he has a squeaky voice the next day
“I wanted to know if you ate my ice cream” he’d said.
Kai: Lloyd doesn’t skip leg day, right Lloyd? Lloyd: no I don’t. Kai: good man! because every day is leg day am I r- Lloyd: no. I don’t skip leg day because there is no leg day. I don’t work out. no day is leg day.
Lloyd is so good at building dens you have no idea. He had to look like an evil mastermind back at darkleys and you can’t be an evil mastermind without a sick headquarters
He cannot go on holiday anywhere that requires a passport, because you know, it says he’s like 10 years old and he has a baby photo so
He got in so much trouble because he completely forgot and tried to use it at the airport and the security guard was like “is this a joke. You have clearly taken a passport that belongs to a 10 year old child. This is not you”.
They all get home and they’re like what do we do?? And after a long discussion, cole, who is in the background, just slowly puts his book down and goes “I know a guy who knows a guy. He can hook you up.”
And he sounds so sinister when he says it like what does he mean? What will the guy who’s known by a guy that cole knows do??
Turns out he just fiddles with the date on his records but still, why does cole need to know someone who can hack into legal documents. Why cole. Why.
Jay: Lloyd your mom needs you Lloyd: *puts on sunglasses* I can’t read suddenly I don’t know
Lloyd: I’m not 10 anymore stop treating me like a baby!! Wu: Lloyd you need to come help me with- Lloyd: sorry uncle Wu but I am only 10
Everyone’s like “oh Lloyd I bought you this green item of clothing because you love green :)” and Lloyd is like :’’’’’’) thanks?? Because he wants to be grateful but he doesn’t even like green he just feels obliged to wear it because it’s his ninja colour ajdnan
has so many vintage comics that if he sold them he would probably be a millionaire
his reading wasn’t so sharp cause again, he just aged up magically without school or life training etc, but he made himself read more so he’d be better at it and now he would die for a good book
pls… don’t go to him with your struggles. he will be more than happy to listen and give you advice but the bean boy has enough on his plate just let him sleep
the king of hide and seek? once they couldn’t find him for 7 hours and they assumed he had been kidnapped again
“oh, I can be chivalrous, watch this. ahem, wilst thou accompanyeth meen to the theatre where they shallst be showing thine desired movie this fine nightynoon”
he once convinced the group that his powers diminished if he didn’t get to eat some candy every few hours
how does he still have pristine teeth please tell me
Wu: if you don’t stop it right now I will… i’ll… tell your mom i’m mad!!! Lloyd with heavy sarcasm: well now there’s no need to take drastic measures here uncle
try and pull the “i’m disappointed in you” card and he’ll be like lmao me too, you can’t guilt trip me if i’m already guilt tripping myself *taps finger on his head*
one time he pulled the lid off of a tub of cereal too hard and honestly, they were still finding pieces of it a month after it happened. it went everywhere. Lloyd just went straight back to bed
“oh, get some sleep??? I don’t know her. I do not sleep. no, only my respecting ninjago juice keeps me going, I don’t need breaks. Breaks are for the weak and sleep is for losers.100% 24/7 365.” “…” “please send me on vacation”
Also some brightshipping for you because it cleansed my soul and cleared my skin and watered my crops
The first time they meet Micah trips and falls on him and is like ‘oh no he’s cute’ and just goes “oh are you an angel cause guess I really fell from heaven on you right now and it probably hurt haha b ye” and just gets up and runs away, and Lloyd just lays there on the floor like ???¿??¿¿??¿? what is happening
And he brushes it off, but he can’t stop thinking about him for some reason and he’s like “he had really cute hair and the biggest most beautiful eyes that stared right into my soul- oh no Kai had been talking to me for the past 5 minutes I have not been listening”
Micah is like pls let me never see him again I’m so embarrassed
He sees him again and is like God if you’re out there please let him not notice me Lloyd: oh hi fancy seeing you here :) Micah: wth @ god I said no what is up with this
Wu: I’m going to the mall do you want anything Lloyd: something sparkly would be nice Micah, dropping to one knee: will a ring do
Cuddled up on the couch playing i spy all day and Lloyd keeps saying “I spy the love of my life” and Micah is like that is not how you play the game Lloyd but thank you I love you too
One time lloyd is sad and Micah just boops him on the nose and he is healed
Lloyd: I still can’t drive Micah: are you kidding I’m going to teach you to drive Lloyd: Micah… we are .. the same age… you can’t drive… Micah: i am going to teach you to drive.
I seem to remember somewhere that you said Micah works in a flower shop?
So Lloyd and Micah have been getting to know each other for a while and Lloyd is like “I can do this I can buy the cute boy some flowers come on Lloyd”
so he marches into the florist and slams $20 on the checkout and is like “I need your gayest bunch of flowers stat”
he is shook when Micah turns around and gives him this glowing smile and goes “oh hey Lloyd what brings you here :)” and he’s like “if I ever needed a sign it’s right here”
So he asks Micah his favourite flowers that he would “recommend” and Lloyd ends up with a beautiful bunch of flowers and as soon as he finishes paying he screams “WILL YOU GO ON A DATE WITH ME PLEASE” and shoves the flowers back in his face “THEY WE’RE FOR YOU ALL ALONG DO YOU LIKE THEM”
and Micah is the colour of the carnations he picked out and goes “of course I like them you loser I picked them out myself”
Micah loves them so much he used his best preservation techniques to make them last and then gets one of them pressed so he can keep it forever
Shows up to the date with one of the flowers in his hair and Lloyd nearly dies
Speaking of Micah makes badass flower crowns and Lloyd is only too happy to try them out
Micah: *knocks on Lloyd’s door* oh fancy seeing you here in this part of town ;)) Lloyd: Micah i live here this is my bedroom
Alternatively: Lloyd: *comes out of the bathroom* Micah: hey come here often beautiful? ;)) Lloyd: I was sat with you 30 seconds ago
Micah: why is our ship name brightshipping? Lloyd: because you are the light and love of my life and my source of joy comes from you and whenever you walk into a room everything lights up and I feel like everything is going to be ok just as long as you’re here Micah: *clutches heart* I can’t breathe
I mentioned that he sings Tangled so the answer is yes he and Micah will duet with “I see the light”
Lots of forehead nuzzles
Lloyd makes him blush one time and he’s like “he’s so dreamy- hang on are those FRECKLES”
Micah: Lloyd I have a gift for you! *kisses him on the cheek* do you like it? Lloyd: I don’t know… Micah: :( Lloyd: I think I want to return it ;) Micah: :D !!
Whenever Micah is doing anything remotely competitive Lloyd will be in the crowd waving a bi flag with Micah’s face on it screaming “GO ON BABY KICK HIS ASS”
One time Micah pulls up on his bike mid battle and Lloyd is like “what the hell are you doing here?!?!” And Micah just goes “you forgot your lunch”
Micah: I am so cool, honestly nothing phases me I can handle anything Lloyd: do you have any tape babe I broke something off my bike Micah: you can have my liver and my hand in marriage will that suffice
Lloyd is the master of light/energy or whatever idk they keep changing it, but that means he can make fireworks and pretty swirly lights in the sky in all sorts of shapes and colours for when they’re on a late night date
In the most cliche moment I have ever written, Micah is like “they’re so beautiful” and Lloyd is just looking at him the whole time and goes “yeah you are”
because he hasn’t even been paying attention to what he’s doing he’s just looking at Micah
the reason the lights are the most beautiful things you’ll ever see is because Micah is the most beautiful thing Lloyd has ever seen
and he’s just making what he feels inspired to make when he sees his bf’s beautiful face
I could write you a novel on the things that are wrong with Lloyd due to past trauma. But the main thing is that he hates sleeping and he gets really anxious about it, but watching Micah sleeping with this little smile on his face and his messy red hair makes everything so much easier because how can he think of anything else when he has this angel in front of him
A battle for who has the softest hair
Micah is so extra, he will constantly walk up to Lloyd and dip him just to give him a kiss
Lloyd: “DON’T WORRY MICAH YOUR NINJA IN AN UGLY ASS SHINY GREEN GI IS HERE Also Lloyd: *trips over a rock*
Not to be gay but Micah had a scrapbook of his and Lloyd’s favourite moments and pictures ((also the flower he got pressed))
*On Lloyd’s 18th birthday* Lloyd: oh you know what this means ;) Micah: WE CAN ADOPT EVERY ORPHAN IN NINJAGO Lloyd: YOU JUST READ MY MIND THIS IS WHY I LOVE YOU
They aren’t allowed to adopt all the orphans because Wu ruins everything but they do adopt a dog
one time Micah falls down the stairs and when Lloyd tries to help him he goes “wow there are stars in your eyes” and Lloyd is blushing and goes “aw thanks” and Micah is like “no really I’m seeing stars I hit my head really hard I think I need to go to the hospital”
ive yet to see stranger things (YOU HAVENT SEEN STRANGER THINGS WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU a lot) but i have a pang of tender, motherly endearment whenever i see that one kid with the flippy black hair. his name is finn wolfhard idk what i was pretending i didnt know it
think it’s about time we stop making jokes about the amount of famous white boys named Chris, and about time we started focusing on Tom. Am I talking about Cruise? Hiddleston? Hardy? Holland? Hanks? Felton? Fletcher? Selleck? Welling? Ford? Hooper? Brady? It’s impossible to tell because apparently half the male population are called Tom.
