“Thing is, I would not be lost without you. It is with you I find myself thrown off course—stray and adrift in a shoreless ocean, without direction or destination, or familiar stars to guide my route. But I have never felt more at peace, more at home, than I am when lost in love with you.”
uh this also couldn’t be any more precious?? I think this would both happen if they were working on a case together (because he’s definitely her scary, old man assistant, to break the mold of the cute, teenage girl assistant) and also just like they are best buds and would stay too late at the office and are comfortable enough together to do that!!!!! GOD!!!!!!!!
I’m thinking about who falls asleep first??? like maybe athena gets up to make coffee for them both and when she comes back to talk to him about something, simon is already out like a light. so she sits down next to him to pry the files from his hands but oh no this sofa is WEIRDLY comfortable right now and she’s at just the right angle that simon makes a pretty good pillow………
and obviously they are both disastrous messes upon waking with hair everywhere, so phoenix is surprised they are here and also that they look THAT horrendous. simon and athena are probably both pretty embarrassed until simon complains that his back hurts from how weird he slept and so athena LATCHES ONTO THAT because making fun of old man simon is the best. phoenix thinks about joining in but he knows that athena is the only one who can get away with it and live to tell the tale.
it probably happens again from time to time out and it’s genuiniely endearing

There are some new faces around PLATH and I am always excited to meet everybody, specially while you sleep. Ah, it’s so lovely to sneak under your bed, waiting for you to turn off the lights and then WATCH YOU dream and dream. Fiddle within your belongings, see what makes you TICK. But what kind of HOST am I? What’s a warm welcome to the fresh meat without a
