Imagine David (in the Mogarvid verse) being super insecure and self conscious after what happened with Bonquisha, and constantly being worried that he’s not, quote unquote ‘man enough’ for Mogar. Mogar’s so strong and fearless and powerful and just…amazing! David sometimes (all the time) wonders if Mogar could do much better than just settling for him.
Of course he never mentions it, and it eats away at him, to the point where he just kinda…breaks down somewhere while he thinks he’s alone, terrified at the thought of once again not being good enough for someone he loves so much.
Surprise, surprise, Mogar was hanging out in a nearby tree and happened to hear David crying, and so of course, he comes to comfort him. And David ends up admitting his feelings to him, saying over and over he KNOWS how silly it is to be worried about that sort of thing, but he can’t help it. He KNOWS that while he’s strong, he’s still also kind of a softie and cries easily and it just…hurts when people think less of him for it.
And Mogar stares at him for a moment before pulling him into a big (bear) hug and assuring him that he doesn’t need to be anything more than just David. Mogar doesn’t care if David cries or is soft, because Mogar likes David how he is. Honestly, Mogar wishes he could be soft and nice like David sometimes. Mogar likes being strong, but it does come across as terrifying to people who don’t know him, even when he’s trying NOT to be terrifying.
And Mogar had trouble with trusting people in the past, but not once since the two of them met has he ever felt like he couldn’t trust David. Mogar LOVES David because he’s David.
This only makes David cry harder and hug his bear boyfriend tighter, assuring him that he loves Mogar, too. Big softy.
