So more on Dexter Grif (season 15 episode 6 spoilers)
Remember back in season 10 when Doc was giving his speech on the good stuff that happened to everyone thanks to Project Freelancer and all adventures of the Reds and Blues? The only two people he hadn’t addressed had been Caboose – who lost Church, and Grif. It might have been because Grif got the, well, Grifshot. Or maybe because he never got what he truly wanted and… After now I think about that a lot.
[While the freelancers are pulling in on the base]
Wash: …. Take off your helmet
Carolina: What? Why?
Wash: We need this to go quick, don’t we? Carolina: Yes?
Wash: Take off your helmet
Carolina: Take off your helmet
Wash: I’m not Vera’s type!
Carolina: … I am not using my sex appeal just because you ordered me to Wash: …. it’s for Church
Carolina: …. goddammit, Wash
RvB is weird because its like “who’s on red team? Sarge, Simmons, Grif, Donut, and Lopez” but “whos on blue team? Tucker, Church, Caboose, Sheila, Sister it turns out, Tex has there, Junior but the rules on alien babies are unclear, maybe Doc, sometimes Carolina, definetly Wash but only later, Church again? Simmons tried”
tbh i want more epsilon characterization where he isn’t just like church to fit in bc he was expected to. like s7, where he’s more upbeat and just wants to be worshipped and shoot lasers, or really anything where he’s less of everyone’s replacement for alpha church yknow?
like every member of the bgc pretty much just views him as alpha. the only main person he interacts with who doesn’t see him as church (right away, anyway) is carolina, and that’s because she never met alpha even wash eventually just reads him as Church, and wash knew him during pfl (if u count dying as getting to know someone, i guess)
anyway in summary: let epsilon develop his own personality that isnt “replacement for alpha,” cowards
Actually, years of trauma and literally fighting for my life against mental and physical abuse and isolation have pretty much burnt out my adrenaline responses to situations like this and left me without the ability to feel normal reactions and emotions

A/N: Who’s ready for things to get SAPPY in here? I am. I’m totally read for some more sap. Which is why I wrote it. ;P
Summary: Wash has already gone through too much, been broken too often. So when they get captured by Hargrove together, Tucker figures he has one job: until the cavalry shows up, keep Wash alive and (relatively) sane. No matter the cost.
Unfortunately, Wash is just as determined to protect him.
Warnings: Canon-typical language, aftermath of canonical character death, psychological torture, hallucinations, hallucinated child harm, mentions of torture and suicide, fake-out character death.
The guards come to get Tucker out of his cell, and he doesn’t fight them. He never fights them. He agreed to this, and he knows what happens if he stops playing nice.
But he knows what’s waiting for him in the lab, and he feels sick as they march him down the hallway. He’s tired of watching his friends die. He’s tired of his friends killing him. He wants to know why the fuck the others haven’t come to get them yet. It’s got to have been at least three days by now.
Sure, he could understand the Reds fucking around and wasting time. Simmons would need to make a spreadsheet, and Sarge would want to build a robot. Grif would just say “meh” and find another bag of cheetos. But Carolina? Being an actual badass is her entire job.
Not to mention that Tucker and Wash are supposed to be heroes of Chorus now. Rescuing them should be Kimball’s priority number one.
