Fuck you, you don’t owe it to yourself man, you owe it to me. Cause tomorrow I’m gonna wake up and I’ll be 50, and I’ll still be doing this shit. And that’s all right. That’s fine. I mean, you’re sitting on a winning lottery ticket, and you’re too much of a pussy to cash it in and that’s bullshit. Cause I’d do fucking anything to have what you got. So would any of these fucking guys. It’d be an insult to us if you’re still here in 20 years. Hanging around here is a fucking waste of your time.

“So, are you ready?” You asked your boyfriend as you sat in the rental car parked on the street. You were outside your dad’s house ready to meet up with everyone but you had noticed that Alex was looking very nervous. He turned in his seat and looked at you worried. 

“I’ve met Gustaf and we’re really good friends so it’s not him I’m worried about. It’s the rest of them. I haven’t met your family and what if I forget their names, not to mention they’re all so tall! It’s intimidating Y/N!” He ranted anxiously. You couldn’t help but let out a small laugh.

“Alex, Alex, stop worrying.” You cooed, taking his hand in yours.. “Everything is going to be fine. If I like you then so will my brothers. We’re a family that’s good at acceptance. Now come on or else we’re going to be late.” Hopping out of the car you grabbed your suitcase and met up with Alex as you walked to the door. You didn’t even have to wait long after you knocked because within seconds there were shrieks and screams coming from your younger brothers as they hurtled into your body, wrapping their limbs around you. You placed your bag down inside and embraced them in a hug, unaware of your boyfriend smiling down at you. You were introducing your little brothers to Alex when you heard a voice coming from the hall.

“Y/N!” Bill shouted, Valter trailing behind him. “I can’t believe your back after deserting us for so long.” He joked sarcastically. Your older brother came up to you and hugged you tightly and you wasted no time squeezing the life out of him as you hadn’t seen him in nearly a year.

“It’s clear who your favourite brother is. Running off with Gustaf to Ireland and leaving us in boring old Stockholm. How could you?” Valter teased, taking his turn embracing his big sister. You were sandwiched between Eija and Valter when it came to age, though you were particularly close with Bill and Alex, even though Alex was off in Hollywood when you were just a teen.

You noticed Alex standing off to the side awkwardly and you decided it was the right time to introduce him. “Hey guys, this is Alex, the one from Vikings. He’s the guy I was telling you about.” You said, gesturing to Alex as he gave a wide smile and shook your brothers hands. At that point, Eija decided to join the group that had gathered at the entranceway.

“Ah, is this the boyfriend?” She asked grinning and you were once again engulfed in a hug. You nodded cautiously and looked to see your brothers reactions. They seemed a bit shocked, even though you had hinted that you were bringing a ‘close male friend’ with you. Seems they just didn’t get the hint. 

“You have a boyfriend?” Bill asked, changing his posture and lengthening his body to seem more intimidating. “Since when?”

“Uh, yeah. And for a couple of months.” Warily, you replied and moved to grasp Alex’s hand in your own in an attempt to calm both you and him down.

“Well then, I guess he better meet Dad.” Bill said seriously.

“Come on Alex, it’s time for you to meet your maker.” Eija joked, walking through the house into the family room. You picked up your 4 year old brother and followed behind her, Alex by your side. When you saw your mother and father, you gave them a hug and kiss each, before hugging Gustaf and Alex who were sitting on the couch. You set your brother down, before looking over to Alex who was being stared down by your father. You looked at your father pointedly and he got your message, walking over to your boyfriend and greeting him warmly with a warm hug.

“Pappa, this is Alex - my boyfriend.” You said as they pulled apart.

“Hi, it’s nice to meet you. I’m Stellan and this is My, and that’s Meghan. I’m assuming Y/N’s told you all about the Swedish Brady Bunch though so please, have a seat. Make yourself comfortable.” He and Alex sat down on the couch and your father spoke again. “So tell me, do you love my daughter?” At this, you choked on your saliva and began to cough, turning all attention to you. You were shocked that your father had asked that outright, though you couldn’t really be surprised. What did surprise you however was Alex’s answer. 

“Yes, with all my heart.” You looked at your boyfriend in shock - you didn’t think you were at that stage in your relationship yet you could see that he truly meant it. You swear you felt your heart flutter and you even saw Eija swoon a little, sending you a subtle thumbs up.

“Good.” Your father replied and you saw both your mother and Meghan nodding in approval. “If you continue to treat her right and look after her, and if you make sure she’s happy then know you will always be welcome here.”

“But if you break her heart, we will break your bones.” Alex chimed in from the couch, earning himself a warning glare from both you and your mother. 

“I promise if I ever break her heart you have full permission to beat me black and blue to try and knock some sense into me. 100%.” Your boyfriend chimed in seriously. There was another silent pause before Alex and Gustaf laughed at the Dane and soon the atmosphere was happier, everyone chatting cheerily.


You sat on a couch catching up with Eija as Bill, Alex and Gustaf played pool with Alex across the room. You would occasionally make eye contact with him and you’d both send a smile the others way. He appeared to be finishing up soon so Eija excused herself as you made space for your boyfriend to sit with you.

“See, I told you they would like you.” You mocked as Alex settled into the couch, slinging an arm over your shoulders.

“Ah, well I have you to thank for that. You make me sound so much more appealing than I really am.” He replied teasingly and you just laughed.

“You are pretty great though, don’t deny it. You fit right in here and that isn’t easy. We’re a pretty crazy family. Everyone likes you, even Alex, and that doesn’t always happen straight away. Remember, we’re the Swedish Brady Bunch. Give yourself some credit babe. You did good.” Placing a quick peck on his lips, you both laughed as the youngest of your brothers squealed in disgust.

“I did a good job at getting you, that’s for sure. And I won’t be stupid enough to let you go.”
