You and I know that Deaths don’t love.


Alright, the idea of Snafu as Death kept bugging me and the idea of Angel of Death Snafu falling in love with human Eugene Sledge intrigued me so much that I ended up writing this and actually shoving the rough drafts to @im-dyin-sledge @somethingyesterday @donniesdonowitz @spxirs & @generoes because I still feel like I can’t write Sledgefu properly. This has been beta-read by @liebgottshersheybar and all mistakes are mine.

One of the things I love most about Rami Malek is that he is 100% not here for toxic masculinity. He wears whatever the fuck he wants. He played a gay teenager in one of his first acting roles. He’s openly caring and affectionate with men (and never tries to laugh it off or say some idiotic equivalent of “no homo”). He’s a vocal feminist. Basically whatever a Hollywood leading man “"should”“ be doing, he’s doing the opposite. He truly and wholeheartedly gives no fucks.

Honestly if he’s not one of your faves yet then wtf you doin
