me and @firebirdcorrect-primelawyer have been meta’ing about Strange Days’ Miles and Gregory, and wee! Miles, Phoenix and Larry, and OMG IT’S SO CUTE!!!
Gregory watching his tiny son play with his friends. Gregory noticing that Phoenix left Miles a blanket after a sleep-over, and that Miles will sleep with the blanket whenever Miles has a nightmare. Gregory watching Phoenix insert himself between Miles to herd people away so Miles can safely walk down the street. Gregory watching Phoenix hold Miles’ hand as they cross the street and not let go…Gregory realizing that Phoenix may one day be an Alpha and his son an omega, Gregory realizing he’s probably interacting with his future son in-law…Gregory holding his confused son (”Father why are you being so clingy?”) because even though he knows that they’re only 9 and the interactions between Miles and Phoenix are totally innocent and anything could happen in Miles’ future, his son is growing up too fast.
Also: Beta! Larry not realizing until he’s much older that he’s been 3rd-wheeling Miles and Phoenix pretty much all of this life.
