On Queerplatonic Relationships, From Someone Who’s Actually In One

I decided to crosspost this to this blog instead of my new one since this one has more of a followership. (Copypasta’d from my WP so people don’t have to click away from tumblr.) That’s how frustrated I am about all this. Anyway.

I originally wasn’t intending for this to be a long post but two thousand words later I realized that it is long, and rightfully so. This stuff is complicated, and there’s a lot that goes into it, and the people who don’t want to sit through it aren’t the people I’m trying to reach anyway. As always, I’m talking exclusively about American culture.

Because I know people will want to crawl up my ass and ask, I’ve been in a queerplatonic relationship for three years and known my partner for about fourteen years. We get a lot of questions about our relationship, both in and outside of the queer community, and I usually start out with “It’s easy to explain but difficult for people to understand.”

We both subscribe to a very broad definition of what a queerplatonic relationship is. There should be no romantic feelings between the people in the relationship, and there’s an element of commitment. Some QPRs have a sexual component, some don’t. (Friends with benefits are not automatically queerplatonic relationships, as I’ve seen posited.) Sometimes the people in a QPR are queer themselves, sometimes they’re not. Maybe one is but the other isn’t, maybe they don’t start out identifying as queer and then they do later, maybe not. To be quite frank, neither of us care, and neither should you.

If you’ve followed me for any length of time on pretty much any platform, you know I talk about moral purism and how deeply it’s ingrained in our culture, and how it’s driven and supported by capitalism—how capitalism demands and feeds our amatonormative society. If you haven’t experienced the joy of me screaming about capitalism, well, here we go.

The nuclear family model—two parents, living separately from extended family and raising their kids, probably both parents working but maybe just one—is new and supported and driven by capitalism. In most cultures, it’s common for extended families to live together and raise children as a team effort. When you have a family with a network of aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins all cooperating and sharing the labor and time investment of just existing, it’s a lot less of a financial disaster if someone gets sick or injured.

In a nuclear family, if Parent 1 gets injured and has a three month recovery time, all of a sudden they can’t contribute to family upkeep in terms of money they provide through work, or time that they usually invest in maintaining the home/children. Parent 2 can’t both work overtime and spend more time maintaining the house/family and then they fall behind on bills and into financial ruin, or Parent 1 pushes themselves to go back to work sooner and ends up with a chronic injury/illness because of it.

In an extended family model, if Parent 1 gets injured and has a three month recovery time, Aunt 1 and Cousin 2 start taking the kids some evenings and Cousin 3 groups the kids with their own, Uncles 2 and 3 take on a little more work to maintain the house(s), and Cousin 4 starts carpooling with Parent 2 to save on gas. Everyone invests a little more time and money and Parent 1 is able to rest and recover. Or maybe they can’t, maybe Parent 1 is disabled, but it’s still not the time/financial strain it would be if there was only one other person to take on more work.

In a nuclear family, every family needs to buy separate appliances, furniture, tools, etc. In an extended family, everyone trades the toolkit back and forth, your cousin gives you a couch they don’t need anymore, you borrow your aunt’s crockpot, your cousin comes over to fix your car. People relying on others outside of the person who’s meant to be their One True Love, isn’t good for capitalism. Capitalism doesn’t want you living with your friends and splitting rent, utilities, and groceries. Capitalism doesn’t want you getting your car fixed by your best friend’s brother. (You better have a receipt showing you didn’t have insurance because your car was in the shop.)

Kids that live with their parents into adulthood are ‘pathetic’, especially if that kid gets married. You better have your own insurance policy, you better have your own phone plan, you better buy your own house (why aren’t you all buying more houses), but wait, you can’t buy that house with a bunch of friends, what do you mean you’re not married or engaged to them? Oh, you are married but you’re just friends? That’s weird, why would you want to marry your friend, what happens when you meet someone you fall in love with? Don’t you want to wait for The One?

Are you sure you don’t want to wait for The One?

Your platonic relationships aren’t as important as your relationship with your (eventual) spouse, and your spouse better be the only person you have a romantic and sexual relationship with, because you must have both. Your spouse better also be your best friend, because everyone knows that the best married couples are people who’re ‘each others’ best friend’. You get to choose one person, and that person is your everything. The person you fall in love with will be the person you have sex with will be the person you get married to will be the person you buy a house with will be the person you have kids with, and you better do all those things and it better be in that order.

Capitalism says that your friendships are unimportant.

In order to understand my point about queerplatonic relationships, you need to understand how sincere I am when I say Fuck that.

My queerplatonic partner is my primary emotional relationship. We’ve known each other for over half our lives and we evolved into our QPR the way most do, from what I’ve seen; essentially we realized we were already in a QPR and found the term that described us. We made a conscious decision to commit and be partners to each other and to have as healthy a relationship as we can. We’re in sync 99% of the time and when we’re not, we talk things out. Our relationship is a lot of work because all relationships are work, and we happily devote ourselves to that. I’ve seen a recurrent theme that, somehow, QPRs are just so easy because… to be honest I don’t really understand why, I just know that that’s something I’ve seen a lot. I have a theory about people wanting a romantic relationship-lite, but that’s besides the point.

I’m a-spec, and I am (half-heartedly) seeking romantic/sexual partner(s). I’m not super into it, because of a variety of reasons, but mostly because it’s not an overriding concern. I already have the kind of emotionally supportive relationship I need to be a relatively well-adjusted person, I’m not exactly seeking another one. Do I want a romantic and/or sexual partner? Sure, I also would like a committed D/s relationship, since I’m talking about it. Do I need a romantic/sexual partner? Nope.

One of the reasons I’m not into looking is because the people I’ve talked to are not okay with the concept of coming in “second place” to what they see as an inferior relationship. Even the poly people I’ve talked to are disinterested once I’ve made it clear that my queerplatonic partner is going to be equally important to any romantic/sexual partner(s) that I have.

And that, that is one of the big reasons why I take issue with a-spec people saying that only a-spec people can have queerplatonic relationships.

There seems to be this weird misconception that non a-spec people don’t suffer the same kind of backlash from being in a QPR as an a-spec person? Which… that seems unlikely. I didn’t publicly identify as gray/demi-ace when my partner and I first defined our relationship as a QPR, and I still got the same rude, horrible questions then as I do now, and that’s only assuming that every discussion about my QPR involves me being a-spec, which they don’t. I’m actually way more open about being bisexual than I am about being a-spec.

When society devalues platonic relationships, everyone suffers. Because society devalues platonic relationships, I continually have to justify my relationship to people who think I’m settling or suffering or ‘not getting my needs met.’ Because society devalues platonic relationships, people are forced to make one person their only person, their everything. People are forced to constrain themselves to tiny support groups and networks and suffer the monetary, physical, and mental consequences that come from having limited support networks. Our society is chronically afraid of platonic physical affection and so sexualizes everything. There are huge swathes of the population who don’t know that not choosing a One True Love is even an option and so force themselves into boxes that don’t match what they feel.

In light of all of that, why the actual hell would I ever tell someone “You’re not allowed to call your relationship a queerplatonic one because you haven’t suffered exactly the same way I have”? Why would I ever deny someone else the solace I’ve found in my own queerplatonic relationship?

And there are all kinds of people who want to be all “Well women with really close friendships don’t have queerplatonic relationships because they’re just friendships!” And like, way to miss the point. You’re still devaluing platonic relationships! A friendship isn’t just anything. My partner and I didn’t travel to a mystical site and sacrifice an animal under a blood moon to level up into a queerplatonic relationship. We started texting a lot, got closer, both discovered that queerplatonic relationships exist, circled the definition for like six months and then finally said “Yep, we’re in a queerplatonic relationship.” And since then, we’ve put a lot of time and effort and commitment into our relationship and consider and call each other partner. I go over this stuff with my mom and sister until they understand and I talk things out with them and my partner and we both put a lot of fucking effort into our relationship.

My mom has two really good friends she’s known since they were all ten years old, and maybe one day she and they will decide to define their relationships as queerplatonic relationships. Maybe if men were allowed to have close platonic relationships (and yes I know this is edging in toxic masculinity which I’m not here for today), they’d be better able to emotionally weather the shit that happens in their lives and they wouldn’t be so terrified of physical comfort. Maybe if people were allowed to say that their close friendships are as important as their romantic/sexual relationships, there wouldn’t be all this bullshit friction over making one person be the receptacle for all their emotional, sexual, and romantic baggage.

Confining queerplatonic relationships to an aro-only phenomenon is needlessly cruel and also exclusivizes something that’s scarce enough as it is. And all this effort to make queerplatonic relationships and ‘attraction’ some extra other thing than ‘just’ friendship misses the point of something we should all be working on. The point of being in a queerplatonic relationship isn’t to have some special relationship other people don’t have access to, that’s somehow better than ‘just’ friendship. There’s a very “Well if anyone could say they’re in a queerplatonic relationship then everyone would be in queerplatonic relationships!” feel to it all, to which I say… Okay? Like? Why would it be a bad thing if queerplatonic relationships were really common? Because that seems to be the logical end to the aros-only train of thought. I think it’d be pretty damn cool if queerplatonic relationships were common. For one, I’d stop having to have a Socratic seminar every time I mention I’m in one.

Not to mention that it is breathtakingly hypocritical for a-spec people to be saying “You’re not X enough for Y” considering the bullshit we get for not being queer enough for the queer community. And you know, that’s really what this whole thing comes down to. It makes sense to want to be selfish about something that gives you comfort, makes sense to want to protect it. But denying non-a-specs from labeling their queerplatonic relationships as such is the actual spirit of cutting off your nose to spite your face.

I know there’s a myriad of good reasons why L chose the name ‘Asahi’ for Soichiro and Light’s aliases, most of them having something to do with Light:

1, ‘Asahi’ (朝日), meaning ‘morning sun’, stood as an antonym to ‘Yagami’, meaning ‘Night god’

2, ‘Asahi Light’ is a brand of beer commonly sold in Japan and other select countries, making Light’s alias difficult for search engines while also taking the everloving piss. Clever, considering his unique original name was easy enough for Misa to search up.

3, ‘Asahi-Lite’ is a company that sells lenses, which covers bases for anyone who spells it differently (see also 2).

4, ‘Asahi Light Metal’ is another company, dealing mostly in metal stamping (see also 2).

5, ‘Asahi Light’ can be loosely translated to ‘Light Morningstar’ - reminiscent of Lucifer (the Devil), called the Morning Star. L’s enough of a shit that I wouldn’t put it past him to have this in mind.

But here’s a sixth:

A Japanese neologism is the verb ‘Asahiru’ - 朝日る - spelt the same way as above and derived from the ‘Asahi Shimbun’ (朝日新聞) newspaper, which means ‘to fabricate stories’, as in, to bullshit to fit your own narrative.

L is straight-up calling Light a liar.

“Ava! C’mon, we can’t be late. School starts in half an hour! Say bye to Bucky and meet me at the car.” You shouted at your five-year-old. She loved Bucky Barnes, your boyfriend. She even started to call him “dad.”

Today was her first day of kindergarten. She was super excited. She wanted to make friends and she wanted to meet her nice teachers. You watched from the car as Bucky walked her to the front porch. He bent down to her pint-sized height, and gave her a big hug. He couldn’t take her to school because Steve needed him for training in the morning.

Ava made her way carefully down the stairs to your little car. She was big enough to get herself into the car seat. You missed the days where you had to help her. She was just getting so big and you knew today was going to be emotional for you. You wished Bucky could’ve been there with you. There wasn’t going to be anyone to pry you away from the school when Ava gets dropped off. Today was going to be hard for you.

Pairing: Jeon JungKook x Reader *Bonus Epilogue by Yoongi* 

Genre: Angst, Fluff, Smut-lite,

Word Count: 5.4K

Why the hell did you have to be here!? Jeon JungKook sat on the couch, trying to focus on the game.  It wasn’t working. 

“Damn it…” he muttered under his breath as he died… again.

“Geez man, what’s gotten into you?  I never beat you…”  Jimin said laughing.  JungKook didn’t answer, and simply waited for his character to respawn.  Out of the corner of his eye he had seen you sitting at the dining table with NamJoon, playing a card game… and laughing… and touching his arm.  JungKook turned back to the T.V., his tongue pressing into his cheek.

This was supposed to be a guys’ night…  Then you and your friend had shown up…  He didn’t even know your friend’s name… 

He didn’t care…

Where was your friend anyway?  Oh wait… Hobi had disappeared too….  Damn it. JungKook pursed his lips and tried to focus as his character returned and he started playing with Jimin again.  He wasn’t going to lose this time. 

He was getting into the game now… really concentrating.  He’d gotten in a few good shots and was about to attack when he heard your laugh.  It practically sparkled across his vision and his heart stopped. 

And so did the game. 

“I’m on a roll tonight!” Jimin said laughing and hitting JungKook’s leg from where he sat on the floor, back to the couch.  JungKook looked down at Jimin, hoping to come across as though he didn’t care. The smirk on Jimin’s face told him he hadn’t succeeded.

“He’s preoccupied…” Yoongi said in a low voice from his perch on the loveseat. JungKook glared at him, but Yoongi just smirked and raised an eyebrow.  JungKook looked back down at Jimin. 

“Nice one,” he said, trying to be a good sport.  He hated being a good sport.  He hated losing.  And why was he losing!?  He glanced over at you again, sitting with NamJoon, deep in conversation.  Apparently you had abandoned the card game.  You were both smiling and NamJoon reached up to wipe something, probably non-existent, off your face.  He tossed the controller onto the floor and looked back at Jimin, whose head was just turning back from watching you and Joonie as well.  Damn it. 

“Maybe we should play something else?” Jimin said, a smirk on his face.  He knew. The little bastard knew!  Well, JungKook wasn’t going to admit to anything.

“That would be my suggestion,” Yoongi interjected.  “I’m getting bored…” 

“Whatever,” JungKook agreed.

“Your mind doesn’t seem to be on the game, JungKook…” Jimin nudged his knee again. “Anything I or…” he nodded in your direction, “…can help you with?”  He smirked and wiggled his eyebrows.  Holding back his anger, JungKook rolled his eyes and sank back against the couch.

Request: Sherlock’s s/o adopts a puppy without Sherlock’s knowledge

Characters: Sherlock Holmes x Reader

Gender: Any/Neutral    Triggers: None

You knew he was gonna be mad. But you couldn’t just let the puppy stay in that place, covered in it’s own filth. After having given the puppy a bath you were drying him off with a towel when you heard the door open. 

Suddenly starting to panic you left the bathroom, leaving the puppy inside. Walking into the living room Sherlock glances at you.

“Ah, there you are, why are you wet?” he asked looking at your damp sleeves.

“Umm, I was cleaning” you said, though not entirely a lite Sherlock still knew you were keeping something from him.

Taking a step towards he he tilted his head slightly “Cleaning what?”

“Umm” you stopped, your eyes widening when you heard a small wine come from the bathroom.

Sherlock looked behind you and then into your eyes “Y/n, what was that?”

“John?” you said unconvincingly

“Whining?” he asked his eyebrows raising

He quickly walked past you and towards the door. Waiting as he opened the door and the puppy ran out. You saw him immediately look at you with shock on his face. The puppy running into your arms,

“I can explain” you said picking the puppy up

“Oh you are definitely going to” he said taking a step towards you

“I was walking past this market and there was this guy with this puppy and I was just going to look, because you know how much I love puppies but then I saw how dirty he was, he was filthy and obviously hadn’t been fed. The man wasn’t taking care of him at all. So I adopted him, if only to get him away from that man, who obviously had no idea what he was doing” you explained.

Sherlock listened intently to you words, you were telling the truth, and you were angry. You always hated when people did not treat their dogs correctly. 

He sighed “And what exactly do you intend to do with it now?”

“Well, I was originally planning on asking some of my friends if they needed a dog, but-” you hesitated

“But?” Sherlock said pushing you to finish

“But…I kind of love him” you said quietly, knowing Sherlock wouldn’t approve.

Seeing you cuddling the dog as it licked your face, Sherlock debated with himself for a moment. Letting out a deep breath he took a step towards you petting the puppy briefly, not being able to stop the small smile when the puppy became excited at his touch.

“If he is too much trouble, you talk to your friends” he said giving in.

Smiling and hugging him while placing a kiss on his cheek he smiled at how happy it made you “Deal” you said knowing full well that there was no way Sherlock was going to let the puppy go by the end of the day.

As some canon proof to how jadedavekat shits all over karkats entire character: karkat literally has an in-comic argument with his future self about how stupid and selfish he is for wanting terezi in not one quadrants but in ALL of them and for wanting her “all to himself”. Its pretty obvious that he cant use the quadrant system, its just not how he functions, he would literally be unable to do it........ Which is how saying jadedavekat completely destroys his character (PLUS JADES TBH!)

youve given me an excuse to ramble about this yet again like the broken record labeled “shouty alien top 50 hits” i am so here you go

karkats entire character revolves around him being what is effectively, a closet human weeaboo. everything about his character should be informed by the fact that he does not fit into his society in absolutely any way and fits earths better, even if he tries EXTREMELY hard to overcompensate for it. his blood color, his lack of violent tendencies, his ability to empathize, his shit fighting abilities, and his romantic tendencies, his lack of wings as a godtier, hell even the nubby horns that are barely there. the other trolls are also like this to various degrees (vriska and terezis characters also tie into this) but karkat is essentially the poster child of this particular aspect of the comic imo. nothing about him fits whatsoever, to the point where vriska said that hed make a better human than troll, and hussie said in the book 3 commentary quote “…he exhibits qualities which are somehow more human than most other characters, which is ironic, because he is not a human.”

for him to get any sensible character development he has to move away from alternian values that are canonically toxic (remember that the literal villain of the story implemented them in order to exploit trolls) because this is at the core of the vast majority of his character faults. he judges himself by standards he shouldnt be judging himself by and is why he thinks hes utterly worthless, and is the reason behind his brash, negative behavior that comes from his mad scramble to overcompensate. he has to learn to accept himself through rejecting these values, or at least not viewing them as the end-all-be-all to start to get over this. (i dont think quadrants are necessarily bad, just like straightness in human society it just shouldnt be ENFORCED by pain of death) this doesnt just extend to him, but extends to the entire hybrid society he was put in charge of building…because how nonsensical is it for echidna to put some kid that parrots doc scratchs shit he was brainwashed into at the forefront of anything thats meant to be an escape from LE?

so the reason why i said i think putting karkat in any sort of poly relationship is character assassination is because it completely goes against his momentum here. him realizing he doesnt fit in romantically EITHER quadrant-wise or polyamorous-wise like we saw him edge towards on-screen and like his ancestor did was the first step in him coming to any sort of relevant understanding here along with him admitting that he isnt good at fighting. having him go back on the terezi development and compromise with an alternian-lite poly relationship is literally reverting character development and also implies weird shit like him not feeling about dave in the same way he did towards terezi or the signless did for the disciple, and is just plain ooc irt his insecurities.

this is why i also think people who say him getting over the jealousy is character development just dont get the whole troll context he comes from and dont see that he was doing that regardless of jealousy being punished by death in his society. also you can get over insecurities that result in massive amounts of jealousy while still being in a stable monogamous relationship, those things arent mutually exclusive…in fact im positive that just him KNOWING that hes entering an exclusive relationship and accepting it as a valid option to begin with that fits him the best and is actually something he wants is enough to quell his insecurities and calm him tf down a lot (versus unreliable vacillating quadrants and sharing partners) along with his general growth in maturity he already went through

———————————————————————————-

Anan: We have chosen D-LITE as a representative of “relate-able person”. We’ve asked him how he feels about this and he mumbles “I’m flattered…” in a fading voice. Even so he’s a member of BIGBANG, a group which held multiple of successful dome concerts, and in fact this coming spring he will be an solo artist to be on the same stage!

D: I never came to think that I am a special person. I look for what I lack all the time, and I like to keep doing that. And when I look for them, I can find ALOT (laughs).
I accept my small eyes, bow legs and other physical traits, but I would never want to give up on things that I can manage to improve, like the way I sing.

And as for the the things I still lack, my fans, members and staffs fulfill them. So if you call me a relate-able person, it is because of those people (who help me). Especially, the power of the fans is tremendous. There were so many times when I was sick and lost my voice during the concert, and overcame that by looking at the fans’ faces. I believe there’s power that I can’t see with my eyes that I receive from the fans.

A: D-LITE is famous for his “angelic smile” that makes everyone happy. Every time he loosens his face with a smile, the stage and the audience gets closer and closer. He has been beaming during this interview. Seems like he can never be angry but…

D: Of course there are times when I get angry. Things that need to be said even with anger must be said. The first time when I got angry was during D'scover production. Before that, I believed getting emotional won’t solve anything and I was a “yes man” who would accept everything. But after going to hospitals to get my throat checked, the doctors told me “I’m concerned about your mental health than your throat. You should express yourself more.” All of the doctors told me it’s better to let my feeling out, so I decided not to keep everything to myself. When I get mad and make a bad atmosphere, that only last for a bit. Most important is the piece of work that will last forever. I could keep my smile on stage because the staffs who work with me offstage accept my feelings. There may be times I require them patience. It’s the reason why how much the staffs and I can share our ideas and thoughts with each other determine if we can work together or not.

A: What is the difference between business scenes that require to say “no” for a better result, and scenes in a relationship?

D: When I am really in love, I can accept basically anything. But this question: “Me or work. Which is more important?” is a real trouble. There are times when I get short notice work schedule right? And when I get that question it gives me a headache. What do I answer? I say things like “I gotta go to work but my heart is here with you~” and leave (laughs).

A: By the way, you are the only one who doesn’t use SNS in BIGBANG.

D: A while ago, I made an Instagram account just to see what the members are posting. But I ended up not checking at all (laughs) From when I was little I never liked taking pictures or getting pictures taken. While doing things like “Look here~ 3,2,1”, I  think “why am I doing this??” I regret that I don’t have a lot of pictures from my childhood because of this, but when I’m moved by the scene, I rather see the scene with my eyes than taking pictures. When I visit places, I don’t really like being satisfied by just taking pics and leave.

A: D-LITE receives lots of love from the fans and staffs, but indeed, BIGBANG members are the ones who he feels the most connected.

D: We each have different personalities and interests. The only thing we have in common is that we each have our own ways of doing (laughs). For the first 5 years of our career, we were so different from each other that we were troubled. But recording ALIVE made our situations change. We came to accept our differences. Our teamwork got better after realizing that we each are puzzle pieces with different shapes that are put together to make one piece. By now, I know what each of them are thinking just by looking at their eyes.

A: Five puzzle pieces are perfectly fit to make BIGBANG. The main key of the teamwork is balancer, D-LITE.

D: SOL-kun and VI are the types who would take the initiative to step forward and get the attention. TOP-san and G-Dragon-san are the types who gets all the eyes even without doing anything. I want to be the person who keeps watching behind them.  I don’t want to step forward.  I must watch them from behind and do a “traffic control” (laughs)

A: It is a miraculous five piece group.

D: Can it really be sure that the five piece was good, (jokingly pointing at VI on a magazine), or was 4 piece better. I will let everyone decide on that(laughs).


What does D-LITE think about his charms that melts people’s hearts?

Voice : My voice has been my complex. It seems a bit blurred and not clear. It changes it’s mood so I have to pamper it (laughs). But, the happiest moment is when I’m singing. I want to keep singing as long as I can so I keep doing voice trainings, and I learned the vocalization of the “right voice” so there’s no stress to my throat. If I change my singing all of the sudden though, it’s rude for those who loves my current voice.. I better not forget my true traits.

Lips: Is it sexy? I just think they are pink (laughs) I decided to make my nose and lips into an ice tray merchandise because those two are what people can be reminded as me the most. I always take note of new merchandise ideas as they come up. I have too many ideas actually. One thing I I would want to change are my legs. If I could make my bow legs straight, I would be few cm taller. My mom bought me bow legs fixing machine but it didn’t work on me..

Humor: Humor is a big part of me. I’d be so glad if I can make the bright atmosphere and make people happy. I loved to make the classmates laugh at school. But when I was at home, I never talked. My parents were strict and my grades weren’t well so I remained silent (laughs) My sister had good grades unlike me. She would be frustrated just by missing a single problem on an exam. I had no words to say…

Can you write something Mycroftxreader where Mycroft's s/o went on a case with Sherlock, got a bad head injury, and gets amnesia?

Originally posted by sodaghostboo

“Mr. Holmes I understand your concern for Miss ____ wellbeing but her retrograde amnesia is only temporarily graded. At worst she’ll come around by the end up next week,” Dr. Khan tries to soothe the agitated Holmes but it doesn’t seem to have any effect.

The elder Holmes is still looking distraught staring into the hospital room where ____ laid and where an equally distraught looking Sherlock sat beside her waiting for her to awaken.

This is was all Sherlock’s fault; goading his girlfriend into coming along on these excursions when he knew that Mycroft was away at work and never thinking of the consequences it could bring.

She was lucky that her head hadn’t split open from the force of the attack but still Mycroft would not forgive his brother if she could not recall the events of this morning.

“Come now Mr. Holmes,” Dr. Khan tried again pulling him away from the window where he stood staring intently at Sherlock, “there’s really no need to be so sore at him. Not when he looks like he’d rather trade places himself.”

Sherlock did look rather desolate in the hospital chair but Mycroft couldn’t quell the anger curled in his belly. No, not this time. This time was different.

 However Dr. Khan refused to relent. Putting his aging hand on his bespoken shoulder he continues to persuade him, “Why don’t you head down to the cafeteria and get yourself something to munch on. Things are always better when there’s a bit of food in your belly. When’s the last time you ate Mr. Holmes?”

Indeed the last time that Mycroft would have eaten would have been last night in preparation for what he was going to ask in the morning.

Mycroft could say without certainty that he was not an easy person to spook but ____ did so just effortlessly making his very lite dinner of grilled cheese and crisps less than fulfilling for the task ahead.

It didn’t help that Mycroft was running late or the fact that _____ said she would give him an answer later on that day but it made Mycroft more skittish than he’d ever been and more quick with his temper.

Even as Mycroft is being lead away (rather forcefully as to get him away from Sherlock) he fixes one more glare at his younger brother before conceding to move.

It’s one that Sherlock catches readily before ducking his head but the intent couldn’t be clearer.

If she doesn’t remember then we will have more than words.

He knows that Sherlock has the little box in his hands.

All Mycroft can do is pray that ____ remembers and more importantly says yes.
