Just another Huddling For Warmth Because Of Totally Plausible Yet Unexplained Plot Reasons fic. You know the drill. Bellamy and Clarke fell in the river during winter. They had to get naked and cuddle in the bunker or else they’d die. It’s science.
“Hurry up,” Bellamy called from the cot. “I’m freezing over here.”
“I don’t even understand how you got undressed so quickly,” Clarke grumbled and stepped out of her sopping wet pants.
“Practise,” Bellamy said. “I do it every day.”
“Funny,” Clarke shot him a look and wriggled out of her sweater.
“I wonder if we already have hypothermia,” she said and paused next to the cot. “Maybe this counts as paradoxical undressing.”
Bellamy snorted and rolled his eyes.
“Quit stalling, just come on already,” he held his arms out.
Clarke huffed and dropped herself into his lap, scooting backwards until her back was flush with his chest. She drew her legs up and hugged her knees.
“Better?” she asked.
“Barely,” Bellamy grunted. “Your hair’s all in my face,” he complained and pushed her damp hair off her neck.
“Sorry,” she mumbled, her hands coming up to weave her hair into a side braid.
“S’okay,” he sighed and he swept the remaining loose strands to the side. The callused pads of his fingers were gentle against her skin. She shivered.
“Here,” he leaned forward and pulled the ragged blanket over them both.
“Better?” he asked.
“Barely,” Clarke echoed him. The blanket was so cold it almost felt damp.
She felt the rise and fall of his chest against her back in what had to be another world weary sigh. She grinned and was about to tease him for it when he circled his arms around her and rested his chin on her shoulder.
She froze for a split second before letting her hands come up to brace against his forearms. For a moment, they were quiet.
“So what now?” Bellamy’s voice rumbled next to her ear.
Clarke shrugged, the movement awkward under the weight of his arms.
“I guess we wait.”
He grunted his assent and dropped his head, his lips brushing her shoulder.
“Is fatigue a symptom of hypothermia?” he asked, his breaths already coming heavy and slow.
“Well, yes,” Clarke said. “But its also a symptom of swimming against the current in a half-frozen river.”
“Hmph,” Bellamy said. His eyes drifted shut and his thumb rubbed absent-minded circles against her hip. “So is it okay if we take a nap or is that giving in to the hypothermia?”
“Giving in?” Clarke asked, bemused. “You can’t just will your way out of hypothermia,” she said.
“I’m not a doctor, Clarke.”
“No one would mistake you for a doctor, Bellamy.”
“Rude,” he mumbled.
She could feel his smile against her shoulder.
“Okay, come on,” he shifted her out of his lap and laid down on his side before tugging her down with him.
“You’re serious about this nap?” Clarke asked.
“Well, yeah,” he banded an arm around her waist. “What else are we going to do?”
He hitched a leg over Clarke’s and pinned the blanket down around them. Clarke breathed in sharply and Bellamy’s arm stiffened around her.
“Sorry,” he muttered and pulled his leg back. “Too far?”
Clarke rolled over to face him.
“No,” she placed a tentative hand on his chest. “It’s just…been a while,” she explained. His arm relaxed around her waist and Bellamy rubbed his hand up and down her back.
“I’m sorry,” he said, ducking down a little to meet her eyes. She nodded and closed her eyes while curling a hand over his shoulder.
“It’s okay,” Clarke said. “Just don’t- Don’t go anywhere, okay?” Her piercing blue eyes blinked open again to search his face.
He swallowed hard and nodded once before averting his gaze.
“I won’t,” he said. “I’m here. I’m always here,” he said huskily. “But you-“
Clarke squeezed her eyes shut and dug her fingers into his shoulder.
“You don’t go anywhere either, okay?”
She sighed in relief and pressed her face into the crook of his neck.
can we talk about how philip used to be so scared to touch lukas. i don’t mean like kissing, well, yes, kissing, but mostly touching him in general. when they weren’t making out, they never really touched. he was always scared to do so, because lukas hit him. hell, lukas was really going down the road that would lead to him full on abusing philip, but he didn’t. he stopped. he got smart and realized that he was going to lose him. that philip was leaving and nothing was worth it if it meant philip left. so he went after him, and now philip is play fighting and nudging him and being so open with his affection. these boys just love each other so much. and you can tell how careful lukas is being; letting philip always start the play fights, never goes for anything anything except for warm embraces and kisses. he understands that philip needs time, that sometimes a playful slap could be seen as a real one, and that philip needs to warm up to him a bit. thats one reason why i think we see glimpses of philip being uncertain in the hay loft. because yes, he is nervous, and he might just be shy about not knowing exactly how to take all of the affection lukas is suddenly giving him, but there’s more. to philip, there’s always a possibility of that kind hand on his shoulder turning hard, maybe, and he probably hates himself for even hesitating at all, but lukas gets it. and lukas refuses to screw this up again, and he’s going to give that boy all the time, kisses, and snuggles he needs
As a mere child, there was no way you could have known what
you had gotten yourself into.
You knew that your life wouldn’t be the same, but you could
have never predicted the magnitude of the decision you had made. Even after the
resonating speech from Mr. Shin, the one you felt a surge of empowerment from,
you were only left with a vague idea of what you were agreeing to be a part of,
but that only served as fuel for your acute curiosity.
The first few weeks at the orphanage served as a
transitionary period for you, not only in order to settle into your current surroundings,
but to prepare you for the change that would soon follow in the coming years.
Hunk and Lance knew each other before the Garrison and have been bffs since childhood
Hunk and Lance didn’t meet in the same preschool nor did they ever go to the same school (until the garrison) but met each other in a nearby playground where they continued to meet up for the next 8-11 years of their life, they usually let off steam about the shit that goes down in their schools.
“Like, if you’re going to steal something from the mall -” “Don’t wear your uniform?” “EXACTLY. God, that guy was so stupid.” “Agreed.”
“Then… then he KICKED the guy’s nose!!! He was bleeding, Lance! He needed to be taken to the hospital!!” “Oh my God, and then what?” “A girl was crying the whole entire time and -” the stories they share go on and on.
Lance’s mom and Hunk’s mom are interested in the same things so their sons r bffs and so r they and their moms drag them off sometimes to do grocery shopping but Hunk and Lance are aways ‘can’t we just stay at hoooommmmeeee?’ ‘no you’re going to help me and hunk’s mom buy groceries for our party’ ‘what party????’ ‘a joint family party!!!!’ ‘??????? !!!! A JOINT FAMILY PARTY ????’
Hunk’s family and Lance’s family are really close buds now
It’s almost surreal how much the two families are alike to interests???
Hunk and Lance meet up after graduating middle school and decide to finally enrol in the same school. Both of them couldn’t have been anymore excited and happy.
Hunk is Lance’s only tether to Earth because Hunk is childhood and playground days, fighting off bullies and staying up at night under covers and pillow forts, charting stars while laying on muddy grass after rain, stealing cookies when their mothers aren’t looking, and making stupid jokes together as the sun went down – all of their world, quiet and soft and sound.
Lance loves Hunk and Hunk loves Lance. They’re best friends, because water breathes life on Earth and what is water without it’s Earth?
