secret of comfort house

Leo Fitz and the No-Good, Terrible Bad Night || Fitz and Rhee

@thebookofsands

Daisy had told him not to run away.  That was fine.  He wasn’t running.  He was just hiding, trying to stop this awful feeling in his stomach like a hot poker being shoved just below his liver and left there to cool.  The last intact beer on base had helped last night, and tonight, now that they were free of the worst woman in the world, he decided he was going to go for something a little more intense.  And where better than Rhee’s bar?  With her history of knowing what top-secret stuff was what, his perpetual on-the-house status, and the comfort of someone AIDA had never known to threaten, there was no way he was going to be unwanted.

It should be raining, he thought glumly, but it was quite a nice night.  There was a light breeze, it wasn’t too hot, it wasn’t chilly, and all the stars visible from the city (so like, two) were shining brightly, gentle twinkles of ignorance and apathy towards what he’d been.

Walking through the door, he closed his eyes.  The good-but-far-from-gourmet food smelled marvelous after years of Framework-mandated blandness, and the slightly seedy atmosphere was a far cry from the fine dining that other self had insisted on.  Yes, this was what he needed, he decided, sitting at the furthest point at the bar.  (After all, they were still probably being hunted, and it made no sense to make it too easy, no matter what he wanted to do.  He just had to hope they were wrapped up in red tape.)

“Scotch, please.  Straight up,” he glumly requested as soon as he had attention.  “Maybe a double.  Or jus’ keep the bottle handy.”

Stellium as problem area

I don’t want to spam everyone by posting all the responses I got to this post about stellia. But I wanted to share some of them nonetheless:

1st House

Anonymous:  I have a first house stellium and I definitely relate to your last stellium post. I’m constantly trying to “find myself” - what I want, what I’m passionate about, what will make me happy. Just who I am in general I guess…

@natalcancer :  i have a 1st house stellium and i question myself/ my existence/ basically everything everyday

2nd House

@thenatalchart :  I have a 2nd house stellium (mercury, venus, jupiter, uranus & neptune) and it’s true for me! especially about the finances. I read about someone with a 2nd house stellium once who was trying to control so many things (he owned) in his life, he had even written a book and wouldn’t trust anyone to promote but himself and he ended up exhausting himself, which I also relate to. I think sometimes the 2nd house is also possessions in general? but yes, I definitely relate to your post! :-)

8th House

Anonymous:  I have an 8th house stellium and intimacy and sharing secrets is truly the hardest things for me to do, its really difficult for me to feel comfortable enough especially with secrets

Anonymous: I have an eighth house stellium and I don’t share my secrets with anyone, intimacy is a big problem area too.

9th House

Anonymous:  Hey! I have stellium in the 9th house. I am agnostic and very curious about religions although I don’t think I need one of them in order to find a God. I don’t know if I struggle with beliefs, though, my faith is just not common I guess.

@dawnsaber :  Yep I have 9th and I’ve learned abt so many religions and belief systems but its hard to find one to actually live by and believe in

12th House

@diiwata-asks :  im a 12th house stellium and i dont struggle w alone time, but i def struggle with selfless service
