a dumb idea i had a while back, that i came back to thanks to this post
pls forgive me it’s very silly it’s basically just jaal getting really emotional about ryder sending nudes
Rafael Octavius Ryder would surely be the death of him.
When Jaal’s omnitool chimes quietly the first time, he’s too busy to check, entirely engrossed in reassembling a Kett rifle he’d taken apart the previous evening. It was good mental exercise, to try and remember where all the parts went after a day or so of absence. To try and figure out what he couldn’t remember based on the shape and size and orientation of the pieces. Like a puzzle that had the potential to explode if put together wrong. Jaal supposes puzzle might be a bit more exciting were that the case.
His omnitool chimes again, goes silent for a moment, then chimes a third time.
He puts down the soldering tool he was using and taps absently on the message. It’s an image file from Ryder, and he opens it without looking up.
When he does look up, he almost drops the laser tool he’s been using, and a humming beam just barely misses severing the tip of his index finger
The “Are you a Reylo?” thing just makes me think… of how many other fandoms do that… too… and not notice that they do indeed do it, also… people will ship what they like. Don’t tell someone that two characters SHOULD NOT AND NEVER BE shipped. Don’t list off reasons why it’s bad and why people are bad for shipping it! Don’t shame someone for liking a damn ship you hate! (Unless it’s adult/child, incest, etc;, then shame away…) I hate Reylo but holy hell I wouldn’t do that, but some people actually DO THAT.
Please stop! I want to enjoy my shows and stories and things without seeing people get berated for liking something.
