Reyes was totes a dramatic kid. Like making up scenarios where he a smooth action hero that gets the boy at the end of the day, with gratuitous explosions. He gets to live that dream in Andromeda, granted his mom would probably disapprove of the whole crime thing but ehh he could have done worse.
Oh my god yes that would explain SO MUCH. He’s like “fuckin score” when he lands Scott Ryder. The Dream’s complete. He’s LIVING. “Said I couldn’t do it, mom. But now I’m the leader of a bunch of space pirates and my boyfriend is a trained killer how fucking- oh god sorry mom I know language- awesome is that.”
Has him actually flinching too because a statement like that would have gotten him a six inch heel in the FACE. And he’d be grounded for LIFE. Who knew his action movie daydreams as a seven year old would be realized twenty years later lmao. What a loser. What an attractive loser.
