For @cloudyrainyday who is awesome ily <3
Summary: All Simon wants is to go outside, and all Baz wants is some peace and quiet.
❗️Cuteness alert (seriously though this is so fluffy I freaking died) ❗️
Simon Snow was pacing around the apartment, groaning every few steps. He was really itching to go outside, but due to weather conditions, he was unable.
It had been raining for quite a few hours now, and it didn’t look like it was going to stop anytime soon. The rain was coming down so hard that only a fool would go outside for even a minute.
Baz Pitch was sitting at the kitchen table, he had been tasked with making sure Simon didn’t get in trouble while Penelope was off visiting Micah in America.
Of course, he didn’t mind. Baz loved spending time with his ‘idiotic boyfriend, who is too adorable for his own good.’ (Baz’s words.)
What Baz didn’t like, however, was the constant groaning currently coming from said boyfriend.
“Seriously Snow, shut up.”
“But Baaaaaaaz,” Simon whines. “I want to go outside! Why is it raining so much, anyway? It’s the middle of summer!”
Baz rolls his eyes. “Ask Mother Nature.”
“Make the rain stop!
“I can’t control the weather.”
Simon groans again, making his way into the kitchen and sitting down across from Baz. “What are you doing, anyway?”
“Well, Snow, I’m trying to draw. I can’t really do that with your constant whining, now can I?”
“What are you drawing?”
Baz blinks a few times, before clearing his throat. He doesn’t answer, and looks embarrassed.
Simon leans across the table and squints, trying to see the drawing that Baz is trying to hide. He notices a few curls, and blinks. “Is… is that me?”
Baz looks away, pulling the paper towards his chest. “Possibly.”
Simon’s face goes red, and there is no stopping the bright smile that soon graces his face.
Baz glances back over at Simon, and immediately regrets it. The vampire’s cheeks become a very faint pink, which for him, means a full blush. He clears his throat, again, growing even more embarrassed. “Don’t look so happy, Snow. It’s not like it-”
“Can I watch you draw?”
Baz stares at him in disbelief. “W-What?”
“I wanna see you draw, Baz. I’ve never seen you draw.”
“I’ll be quiet! Please, Baz?” Simon gives him the puppy dog eyes that he knows he can’t resist, and Baz sighs, giving in.
“Fine, Snow. Just… stay over there.”
Simon nods excitedly, sitting back in his seat and grinning. Baz rolls his eyes at his dork of a boyfriend, before nervously uncovering the paper and going back to his drawing.
Time passes by in a blur, and Simon’s smile hasn’t faltered by the time the drawing is finished. If anything, his smile has seemingly gotten brighter with every passing second.
Baz takes a nervous breath, darting his eyes away as he slides the paper across the table for Simon to look at.
“Wow,” The other manages as his eyes widen. “This is beautiful.”
“It’s really not.” Baz retorts. As with most artists, he doesn’t think it’s all that good.
Simon picks up the paper, walking around the table. “No, Baz, really,” He puts his hand under his chin, forcing Baz to face him. “I love it.”
“Whatever you say, Snow.” Baz’s eyes dart to the ground. He’s not used to compliments on his art, so he isn’t sure if he should believe it.
“I mean it, love.” Simon places a soft kiss on Baz’s lips, before pulling away. “One question, though.”
“….What is it, Simon?”
Simon giggles softly, before responding. “Can I frame it?”
Les Diaboliques is a French film from 1955 that stars Vera Clouzot and Simone Signoret; they are both teachers at a boys boarding school. One of them is the wife of the abusive headmaster and the other is his mistress. And they decide to kill him. They succeed and hide the body….but then it disappears.
The best word to describe this movie is: atmosphere. It is so….eerie. There’s almost a gothic feel to the whole thing. I remember the first time I watched this movie. I was probably around 22/23, living at home and my parents were out for the night and the movie was on TCM. I was watching it with the lights off and about two thirds through the movie, I had to turn the lights back on. It just felt so creepy….and I knew how the movie ended!
Not much else to say, the cinematography is gorgeous, the leading ladies give great performances and there are great twists! Go watch it!
