ch.3 of htgawm has me feeling all sorts of ways <3 i love the idea that every moment is being watched. rae and brendol (and a good chunk of panam) seeing hux nearly choked to death, and then thinking they're going to watch ben kill him… only for hux & ben to snark at each other, trade information, hold hands. for hux to fall asleep on the shoulder of, arguably, the most volatile and dangerous tribute in the games (and for ben to offer up his shoulder in the first place). i love it!!
Yes gahhhhhhhhh I’m really into the idea of their weird romance being seen and scrutinized by the masses and their mentors and families, I’m glad you have that in mind while seeing it from Hux’s POV. Everyone “back home” is debating whether or not Hux is playing Ben or vice versa and who is going to show their true colors first…. while Hux wonders the same but with a lack of cynism that surprises him now that he’s really IN IT and wishing he could rely upon Ben in a lasting way, wah. So glad you liked the new chapter, thank you for the note!! Things only get more intense from here :xx
