Imagine Kaikaina Grif getting a pair of those colour-blindness-fixing glasses. They come in a package to Blood Gulch and at first nobody knows what they are, but then Kai tries them on and for a few moments she can’t breath and all she can see is colours and then she’s gone, off like a bullet.
She runs all the way to Red Base screeching for her brother and when he comes out she laughs because he’s almost the same colour as her! Grif is having troubles as well because he can’t wrap his head around the fact that she can SEE him in colour.
She thinks Donut is beautiful, and Simmons is stunning, and Sarge is intimidating.
She dances with her leader who’s the colour of the sky and tries to compare the two before she realizes that just because something is the same colour, doesn’t mean it can be compared.
Tucker is the same colour as her nails, painted by Caboose a few weeks ago. Caboose is a deep colour that makes her feel like she’s drowning for a reason that she wouldn’t find out until she saw the ocean for the first time.
Nobody’s ever been excited to look out into the canyon and see different shades of brown, but Sister doesn’t want to go back to the grey base.
She’s surprised to see that Tex looks the same. She’s surprised when she realizes that, after everything, black is her favourite colour.
