Shock. That’s what Harvey feels when he opens the door to find Mike on the other side, even though the word isn’t nearly powerful enough to convey the full scope and depth of what Harvey is feeling right now. He checks his watch, because it’s entirely possible his sense of time has become somewhat distorted due to the emotions of the day, but no, it’s 4pm. The exact time Mike and Rachel’s wedding ceremony was supposed to begin.
“What are you doing here?”
“What do you think?” Mike says, voice tinged ever so slightly with anger, before he storms into the apartment.
Harvey slowly closes the door, taking a moment to gather his wits before heading into the apartment to face Mike.
“Tell me why,” Mike demands.
Harvey lets out a resigned sigh, shaking his head. “No.”
“Harvey, I asked you to be my best man, and when you said no, I accepted that, even though it fucking hurt. But if that wasn’t bad enough, yesterday you tell me that you aren’t coming to the ceremony and refuse to tell me why. I mean, what the hell man? After everything -” Mike cuts himself off, taking in a shaky breath like he isn’t sure he can go on. Harvey wants to say something, but he knows Mike too well now, knows he’s just getting started, and interrupting him would just make things worse. Mike takes one more deep breath before continuing, “This morning, when I was supposed to be getting ready for the most important day of my life, all I could think about was you. I was on the verge of a goddamn panic attack because the most important person in my life wasn’t going to be present for the most important day of my life and you…" Mike trails off, his face distorting with realization. “Oh my God, you fucking knew, didn’t you? You knew that I was really in love with you and that was why you weren’t going to come to the wedding.”
Harvey feels like he can’t breathe. He doesn’t even think about it, taking a small step forward. “Mike, believe me when I tell you, I didn’t know.”
Mike looks nervous, chest rising and falling like he’s just run a mile. “You didn’t?”
Harvey shakes his head. “All I knew was that I was in love with you. And I couldn’t just sit there and watch you marry someone else. That’s why I said no to being your best man. It’s why I couldn’t go to your wedding.”
Mike just looks at him for a moment. “Why didn’t you ever tell me?” he asks, plaintively.
“Why didn’t you ever tell me?” Harvey counters.
“Because I didn’t know!” Mike exclaims, indignant.
“Yeah, well, now you do,” Harvey says defensively.
Mike just looks at him for a moment before bursting out into laughter, his whole body sagging with it. It isn’t long before Harvey joins him.
my grandma fell “a few hours ago”. we don’t know the exact time, but my personal guess is sometime between 1-3 pm est. she lives alone and doesn’t have one of those life alert buttons, so she was pretty much stuck until someone “figured it out”. my dad calls her every day around 5 on his way home from work, so when she didn’t answer after 10 attempts, he called his brother, my uncle, who lives ten minutes away from her (we live an hour and 15 minutes away). my aunt and uncle went and found her and are taking care of her.
my uncle and both my parents insisted that she go to the er but she refused.
my dad is quite possibly the greatest man on earth, because he not only had a huge hand in figuring all this out, but he’s going to drive down there and spend the night. my aunt was going to do it, but my grandma would rather my dad be there.
my grandma is going to her doctor tomorrow to get checked out. everyone’s also going to talk about getting her one of those life alert buttons, but pretty much everyone thinks it’s mandatory now that this happened.
as for me personally, i’m still very shaken up and upset by all this. i don’t know if it would do me better to cry or continuously distract myself. i might watch tv with the rest of my family, or i might be on tumblr for the rest of the night and have music or podcasts on or something.
but a quick thank you to the few people who reached out. i honestly thought no one on here cared about my personal life anymore. so it means a lot that people still do.
Chamyle yawned, she was slightly annoyed at the fact that she was stuck on all fours for the time being, as well as the fact she was pretty much stuck in the underground until Hope found her, again. Soft silver fur and black feathers fluffed as she found a proper place to lay down and spread out her wings in an attempt to relax.
I also really want Kiara and Fuli to become friends as they get older. Like, Kiara is desperate for some actual hunting lessons (she’s a great tracker but she’s pretty stuck on what to do after that) and she turns to Fuli for tips. And they hang out and become good friends, like I really want this ok?
I also want Kiara to work really hard to befriend Vitani after SP.
ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW RONAN AND ADAM ARE BASICALLY DADS NOW LIKE
“stop eating random shit you find on the ground”
“*gently soothes her and selflessly gives her things they actually need for themselves*”
“u g h you’re such a brat *lowkey would carry her to the end of the earth*”
“*holds her hand and comforts her even when they’re scared too*”
like idk if she’s more of a toddler or a dog but either way orphan girl/opal is literally their weird goat daughter and you just know they’ve already got a plan worked out for when adam goes to college and they’re both completely in love and committed and in it for the long haul and i love how their relationship managed to be subtle while still completely obliterating any reader ideas that adam may want to leave entirely or isn’t every bit as invested in ronan and the barns and his future there as he is in college and success and this is getting off topic the point is RONAN AND ADAM: ACCIDENTAL MAGIC TEEN DADS
What if Steven uses the Watermelon Steven to get close to Jasper? Like he can fall asleep and will himself to take over a Watermelon Steven whenever he want (as far as we can tell) so what if he uses that power to find Jasper and learn more about her?
She’s pretty much stuck on the island because unlike the Crystal Gems, she wouldn’t know where to go to get to the mainlands and she probably doesn’t want to start a new life wandering under the sea. Through the Melon Stevens, the real Steven could see how she treats people that she doesn’t have a grudge against (something he’s never seen from her before) or people that help her without anything in return, which the Melon Stevens would probably do instinctively. Seeing Jasper’s calmer side would make Steven realize there IS more to Jasper than just a big scary soldier and make him want to know more about her.
What’s more is he would be interacting with her in a completely safe way. If he shows her he’s the real Steven by painting his yellow star or painting on black ‘hair’ so she recognizes him, he could show Jasper that he, the real Steven, is there and wants to understand/interact with her. If she destroys him, he just wakes up and can try to figure out how better to approach her. Heck I can easily see them having episodes where Steven learns something about Jasper or just people in general and at the end, he uses a Watermelon Steven to interact with Jasper in a new way to try and work things out with her.
I‘ve heard people complain that this astral possession power came out of nowhere, and personally I agree but if they applied the power like this I’d forgive them because man it would make for a very interesting redemption arc for Jasper
