What’s your favorite Mileven headcanons?
ok so when it comes to headcanons im either pretty boring or out of line so… my number one headcanon, because i’m 100% sure this will happen, is simply that Mike visits El at least two times a week when she still has to hide. And they watch all the movies he recommends and loves, but also her soap operas and romantic comedies and even though Hopper is very protective of her, he knows that Mike is a good kid he can trust. So even though he sometimes seems annoyed by the boy who seemed to made himself a home in this cabin,….sometimes he watches the two sitting on the couch, cuddling against each other and watching a movie and Hopper catches himself smiling because slowly but surely El is able to live more of a normal life and, if he is completely honest, she is also very lucky to have someone like Mike by her side. Two years ago she was imprisoned in a lab and now she has so many people that love her and protect her. Often, El and Mike wander around the woods in close proximity of the cabin, just to get out of the cabin and smell the forest air and be by themselves. It’s also there that El took initiative and kissed Mike for the first time.
Later, when she has more power and more control over her powers, and therefore doesn’t get nosebleeds doing simple stuff, she sometimes levitates off the ground to be at his level.
