Liam and Jaal getting into a compliment battle that began very Innocent and honest.
“You are a most skilled fighter, Liam. I enjoy watching your prowess in the field.”
“Ah thanks mate you’re all good with that techie stuff. Fixed my shields a few time yeah? ”
“Yes well only because you so expertly kept me safe from wayward by bullets. I simply had to return the favor.”
“Of course, I did. Gotta protect our biggest asset, you know? Wouldn’t be good to let you get hurt.”
“Oh, but would not our crisis response be of greater importance? Where then would we be in a crisis?”
“Ah you would all manage, I bet. But we only got one Angara mate and that makes you priority one in my book.”
“Well, in mine, that would be you. I would not want to be caught in a crisis without you.
"Oh, uh, aha, well ah alright thanks yeah. Back at you.”
Or it devolves into Jaal making Liam feel like the stars and then they smooch and cuddle.
