ive literally named this the worst title on my phone oh my god im not even sorry (it's 'the kind of love where you never need to say 'I love you' but you do anyway')

(i apologize for the Korean song, except i dont really. and also for overlap between this and the unrequited love playlist because sometimes sogs work for both???)

I Wanna Be Yours - Arctic Monkeys
Neonland - Detektivbyran
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Baby I'm Yours - Arctic Monkeys
Every Night - Imagine Dragons
Surprised - Kim Bo Kyung
Love Somebody - Maroon 5
Rocks - Imagine Dragons
Cutie Boots - Stepdad
Sugar - Maroon 5
Summer - Imagine Dragons
Boom Clap - Charli XCX
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Come Under the Covers - Walk the Moon
Don't Wait - Joey Graceffa (of course)

(on a marginally related note, kaime's gayness for fuse is pretty much fucking eternal. i had the idea to write a reincarnation au (au? know what its canon. its canon because im so fucking sad that i killed saivel but ive now committed to that decision and it cannot be changed.) where kaime is the only one that stays remotely constant and literally every time they are gay for fuse. every. single. time.)

{as an added note to that: fuse is constantly male throughout all his incarnations, while the others occasionally fluctuate. in one instance, aaron is agender, saivel is a (trans) dude, venia is genderfluid, and kaime doesnt get why humans have this whole 'girl or boy' nonsense. sometimes theyre neither, sometimes either depending, sometimes both! kaime rejects your gender binary and stomps it into the fucking ground)

reincarnation au is happier but also bittersweet? man idk really how to describe it but it will be from kaime's perspective, seeing these people they know but they dont know living through their lives and livig with them

and then.

there is the worst au i have ever fucking made and i am sorry to myself. it starts out with EVERYONE DYING and the rest is aftermath of traumatized children and dad!dragon. and the villain is still at large. everything's terrible why did i do this to myself

*hugs this post*

*throws celebratory confetti at this post*

*dances around this post*

max: *raises voice just enough to be heard across the aisle* Do you want any ships?
me: *at full volume* I'M ALWAYS A SLUT FOR KAISE

kaise is going to be the cause of my death probably

anyway. WARNING FOR EXTREME GAYS

Always

It's touching, an incredibly sweet gesture, the way Fise's hands loosely grip at Kaime's shirt, the way he looks up at them shyly, nibbling at his lower lip before he asks the question. "Can--" the first word comes out too forceful, and Fuse pauses to reassert himself. "Can I..." The last part of his question is inaudible. He averts his gaze, face flushed red.

"...would you mind repeating that last part?" Kaime asks softly, slightly curious. If Fuse refuses to answer, they won't really mind. For them, it's more than enough to be this close to him, to be able to press their nose into his hair and hold him close to them. They find it hard to believe that they even have that.

"...can I..." Before he can chicken out, Fuse takes a deep breath in. "Can I kiss you?"

The question takes Kaime by surprise. Fuse doesn't need their permission, really, they don't mind, they enjoy it, but it fills them with an unexpected happiness that he asks that. "Of course," they answer without a thought. "Always."

They need to bend down, slightly, and Fuse needs to shift and stretch upwards. The kiss is chaste, quick, over in only a few moments. "Always," Kaime repeats, voice a whisper, meaning it more than Fuse may even ever know.

A smile spreads across Fuse's face. "Well, I suppose that means I don't need to ask for permission for a second one, then?" and before Kaime can even begin to say 'of course not' his hands reach up and pull them down for another kiss, this one deeper than the first, lasting for a few moments longer.

"Aish--get a room!" Saivel exclaims as she walks into the room, rolling her eyes before returning to whatever task she was doing. After a single second of surprised silence, both start laughing. Saivel mumbles something about them being disgustingly sweet and it's killing her or some nonsense like that.

Always, Kaime says, and they mean it.

They give their answer for a second time to a man called Arthur, who looks just a bit different, brown eyes instead of purple, something just a little different in his facial features. But he's the same, still, despite the minute changes, still just as shy, still just as hesitant to ask permission.

This time, Kaime knows the question before he finishes it, smiles, "Of course, always," just like last time. Arthur stammers that they don't even know what he was going to ask, but is easily shut up with even the lightest of kisses.

The third time, Kaime doesn't let him ask. They say, casually, "You don't need to ask my permission to kiss me. You can always do it, I don't mind."

"Really?" Fuse, Arthur, whatever, he's the same person if he is called a different name, if he looks the slightest bit different. He's shocked but pleased, a soft smile gracing his lips while a blush dusts his cheeks.

"Of course. Always." Maybe next time he'll remember it. Though Kaime does find it adorable and sweet how Fuse feels the need to ask, they'd prefer to get to kissing as soon as possible.

*~*~*~*

They don't have names, this time. They don't need them to recognize each other.

"You saying I can always kiss you, that still stands, right?"

"Of course," they smile, and they don't get to the always before he kisses them, and then who even cares about words anymore. It's not as if they need to say it. He remembers it, now. He will remember it, always.

Oh nice. I looked it up and I'm loving it.

Not to mention "Shine" by Anna Nalick being the perfect Saivenia song, and "Bulletproof" by Kerli should totally go on your Saivel playlist.

ok so like in xiavengers

itll be a while before the thing Actually Happens if i do choose to make it happen but i'm conflicted whether to ship zinvis with brutaer or not.

(u havent seen a lot of them so it's probably *shrugs* but augahga)

i mean, here are the things bugging me:

first thing: thanks to the way harmonean society is structured (read: has been fucked up) romance + *cough* other stuff *cough* is a forgotten concept for the vast majority of the population. once upon a time it was a thing, but no longer. very few harmoneans pursue romantic relationships, and always in secret.
(but then how do they reproduce? you ask. ...a good question i shall not answer at this point in time).
counterpoint: just because romantic relationships are taboo in harmonean society doesnt mean everyone's automatically aro/ace. maybe more reluctant and hesitant, but still.
also theyre on earth, and thanks to the source's interference, cannot be tracked down, so if there was a thing they could keep it secret. also, im considering a headcanon of whether or not bru mighta been in a relationship in the past. ??? who knows. xe is not really a fan of rules

second thing: there's kind of an age difference which is hard to describe since, technically speaking, brutaer isn't that much older than zinvis. however, brutaer has been a full-fledged mercenary much longer than zinvis has been a full-fledged investigator. so
counterpoint: it's jobs for christ's sake, but also ??? allotments are a Big Thing in harmonean society and the experience you have too

third thing: come on elder why cant they just be friends
counterpoint: why cant they nOT be friends?

Post by no mom its ironic on Thu Aug 06, 2015 6:21 am

ok so like I ended up with two ideas

idea numero uno:
kaise and saiveniaaron. kaime and saivel are both nobles invited to a ball. fuse is THE prince. kaime is a Big Gay and fuse is a... 'big pan' doesn't have the same ring to it. :/ well ANYWAY
venia and aaron are quite possibly both servants idk i find that idea amusing.
anyway technically speaking kaime being a Big Gay and falling in love with fuse isnt a problem. ...or, it wouldn't be, if he weren't the only heir. like, no siblings at all. this means that he's expected to, ya know, have kids. you see the issue. in fact, his dad's already lined up a good marriage prospect.
if venia wasn't a servant and aaron was outta the picture, there wouldn't be a problem. if the other way around it would be the same. but as it is, venia and aaron are both servants and saivel is in love with both of them.
somehow, it probably works out. im not sure. i just have the basics of the idea

idea numero dos:
saivel is a private/consulting detective and kaime her 'watson' of sorts. sometimes people think they're in a relationship. they're not. in reality, kaime is much more interested in the detective they usually work with, arthur belnz, and saivel in That One Criminal (aaron) who is the only one yet to manage to outsmart her. (kaime doesnt approve.) venia is an occasional assistant and saivel's bffl. maybe kaise and saiveniaaron again. maybe kaise and saivenia. maybe kaise and saairon. the possibilities are endless
dragon features somehow. saivel's mentor of sorts? slash father figure of a kind, idk, who kno,
saivel is actually after the truth behind her father and uncle's mysterious disappearances years ago, shortly after her grandfather's death. plot happens.

dID SOMEONE SAY I NEED TO TALK MORE ABOUT SERENDIPITY??? YES??? GOOD

anyway 'bout bloons characters this time

lucian and chrono are the ultimate Odd Couple. not like, couple yes no you know what i mean i am headcanoning chrono as aromantic and lucian is probably the Only Straight Person in the whole freaking lox crew

chrono is a freakin' genius, but at the same time not strictly employed and not going to college either. lucian is his significantly more responsible best friend, who is aiming to become a doctor, and whose apartment he was at first crashing at temporarily but now has become a permanent fixture in. thankfully his family is providing the funds for the apartment, and anyway chrono makes money off repairing various things which helps them not die.

darkblithe is the resident juvenile delinquent. he, lucian, and chrono are 'acquaintances' of a sort, which is to say mortal fucking enemies. he's an absolute scumbag, only protected by the fact that he's got money behind him. like, a whole lot of money behind him. he jokes about an interest in blood magic and occult shit, but it's anybody's guess how serious he is about that.

WOOP DOOP XIAVENGERs.

mostly aliens this chapter

Chapter Two: All in the Name of Business

As the two waited for the lift to take them down to the ship they would be departing on, Brutaer took the time to study Zinvis. Ey was, like most Investigators were, taller than Bru, with a slimmer build, long limbs, and smooth dark grey skin, somewhat translucent, like dark glass. Eir several narrow eyes were a deep black lacking any sheen, with silvery irises surrounding the wide pupils. The three black horns that curved from the top of eir head were short, a clear sign of Zinvis’ relative youth, but were also marked with the dimly glowing symbols that indicated a fairly high echelon. If Bru recalled the Investigator markings correctly, Zinvis was only a few below xyr own.

Bru, on the other hand, looked entirely different from Zinvis. While the Investigators needed stealth on their side, Mercenaries were brute force, flashy and intimidating, immediately noticeable on a battlefield--and so xyr skin was a metallic copper-red, heavily scarred, as most Mercenaries of xyr age and echelon were. Next to Zinvis, Bru looked as if xe was squashed, with a significantly shorter and stockier build than the Investigator, limbs thick with muscle instead of long and delicate like Zinvis’. Xe only had three black eyes to Zinvis’ five, with irises the same color as xyr skin. The single jet black horn that jutted from xyr head was straight, thick, and longer than Zinvis’s, and also quite extensively etched into, befitting a veteran Mercenary.

Zinvis’ silver irises glanced over towards Bru. "Is something the matter, Mercenary Brutaer?" Ey blinked once, expression one of impenetrable calm.

Bru stared straight back unflinchingly, voice even as xe said, "Either call me Bru or Mercenary, not 'Mercenary Brutaer.' No one calls me that."

"Then I shall be the first," Zinvis stated smoothly, completely unperturbed by Bru's death glare. "And if we are on the topic of preferred method of address, I would rather you refer to me by my title, Investigator, not by name."

When Bru merely narrowed xyr eyes at Zinvis instead of responding, ey turned eir head so that ey was once again facing forward. Ey remained that way, stoically still, as Bru hissed, "If I recall Investigator markings correctly, then I am a higher echelon than you are, Zinvis." The word 'markings' was given special emphasis; it was well known that Mercenaries prided themselves on the fact their horns were permanently engraved, not merely marked as most other allotments' horns were.

"You do, Mercenary Brutaer. I merely assumed that we ought to inform each other of how we liked to be called." Zinvis glanced at the small device ey held in eir hands, reading through whatever was on its screen. "In any case, for the purposes of this mission, we will be going by false identities."

No matter how stubborn xe might have been, Bru knew when to stop pushing a point. Xe grunted, trying to peek at whatever was on Zinvis' screen without looking too obvious about it. "How come you know so much more about this mission than I do?" xe questioned somewhat annoyedly, craning xyr neck to get a better look.

Zinvis tried to ignore Bru's obvious attempts to see eir screen, scrolling downwards to continue reading. Eir answer was cool: "You were delayed returning from your last mission, and your communications systems were damaged. The Overseers did not want to delay this mission any further and so decided that you would just have to be informed more quickly than usual."

"They really want that Source taken care of, don't they?" Deciding Bru's musings were likely rhetorical, Zinvis ignored the question and instead looked to the doors of the lift as it came to a halt. Ey strode out in front of Bru, who had not been anticipating the sudden change and had to hurry to catch up. Xyr legs, though long by Mercenary standards, were shorter than Zinvis'.

The two walked swiftly, Bru following behind Zinvis as xe was unaware of where in the hangar their ship was located. After some time had passed and Zinvis did not seem to be slowing, Bru realized exactly how much in the dark xe was. Though xe understood Zinvis' explanation and thought if reasonable, xe could not stop xyrself from feeling affronted.

First and foremost of xyr unanswered concerns was the identities xe and Zinvis would be assuming. "What are these false identities we'll be going by?"

Before ey answered, Zinvis stopped, took in eir surroundings, and then headed in another direction. As ey spoke, ey remained facing forward, not sparing Bru a second glance. "I am Zamora Villalobos, and you are Brooke--or Beniko--Akiyama."

Bru sounded out the names in xyr head, quietly noting to xyrself how weird ‘human’ names were. “And what do our disguises look like?”

Without warning, Zinvis abruptly stopped, gazing at a fairly small, sleek ship designed for fast and covert travel. Ey barely hid a smirk as Bru only just managed to stop from bumping into em. “See for yourself, Investigator Brutaer.”

Following Zinvis' line of sight, Bru barely stopped xyrself from doing something foolish. If this had been in the works to the point where disguises had already been manufactured, why had xe been left out of the loop? Unless it was the Ultimate Overseer, there was no way the disguises could have been created that quickly. At the very thought of the Ultimate Overseer being responsible for the mission, Bru clicked xyr mouth. Sure, Sources were incredibly important. But one little lost one wasn't important enough for the Ultimate Overseer herself to become involved.

"Is something the matter, Mercenary Brutaer?" asked Zinvis, now focused on Bru and not on the ship. One look at Zinvis' eyes and Bru got the distinct impression ey thought this was funny. Xe wasn't an expert at reading Investigators or anything, but xe was pretty sure Zinvis was having a great time with this.

Purposefully, Bru jostled Zinvis with xyr shoulder as xe walked past em, muttering, "You can find that out for yourself, can't you?" Zinvis froze at the unexpected contact, eyes narrowing slightly, but did not retaliate. Within a few moments ey was following Bru into the ship.

"You know as well as I do that is both a frivolous use of my abilities and likely a useless endeavour." As if setting some kind of example for xem, ey was giving Bru a wide berth as ey walked around the ship. Ey came to a stop next to the see-through container where eir disguise was held.

The vessel was small and compact, built for stealth, speed, and stability. Still, Bru knew well enough that, just in case, there were a few weapons stored aboard. Nothing high-tech like xe would prefer, but from what xe knew it would be more than enough to deal with anything the 'humans' could throw at xem. Xe cast an appraising glance over the control panel, making a satisfied noise, then turning to see what xyr disguise looked like.

The cases in which the disguises were held were, luckily, labelled. Zinvis' was tall, limbs long and thin with little muscle. Its face was angular, chin narrow, nose a sharp point extending forward. Black hair, reaching to the disguise's shoulders, waved slightly in some wind inside the case.

To contrast, Bru's disguise was shorter and stockier, more muscular than Zinvis', with tanned skin that was disappointingly smooth. Perhaps Bru could add some proper scars later. The disguise had black hair like Zinvis', only much shorter, on one side shaved, on the other barely reaching to the chin. Zinvis' disguise was all thin, sharp angles, like a knife; Bru's had more meat to it, not cutting but imposing, face wider, cheekbones prominent. Apart from the not being scarred, it did, in a way, resemble Bru. That didn't make it look any less weird, though.

Without meaning to, Bru let out a disdainful sound, in response to which Zinvis narrowed one pair of eir eyes. Bru blurted out, as if an explanation, "is that what humans look like?"

Although more subtle about it, Zinvis was just as disdainful. "They are, in some ways, similar to us in their anatomy."

Bru stepped back, trying to see what Zinvis was talking about. "Past the standing-on-two-legs, I don't see what we have in common. What are--"

As if predicting Bru's question, Zinvis clicked their mouth a few times. "Humans--for the most part--are divisible, based on construction, into two groups. The majority of them conform to a gender binary of male and female."

Honestly, Bru was not entirely sure whether or not Zinvis was joking. "What."

"There is a roughly equivalent amount of both sexes. After some research, it was concluded both you and I are more similar to females."

This information took Bru off guard. Xe started, voice lowering as they whispered, "Zinvis, we are thinking of the same thi--"

"Yes. Do not think anything of it." With one last disapproving click, Zinvis flicked something upwards on their screen and changed the subject quickly. "It is likely you have already received the message, but in order to be certain, I have sent you an overview of the species."

When Bru merely grunted, searching to find their device in some pocket, Zinvis remarked to themselves in some kind of self-contained conversation, "My horns must grow heavy.” It was so soft, Bru almost didn’t hear it, doubting their senses for a few moments before Zinvis, in reply to eir own words, said, “they do not need you to mark them."

The sheer ridiculousness of the situation made Bru click their mouth once, sharply. "Are you thanking yourself in my place?"

All of Zinvis' eyes blinked at once. Ey looked as if they were surprised Bru thought it was ridiculous. "It is not as if you are going to do it," ey pointed out.

Eir words were true, but Bru was reluctant to admit it. "I might as well have said it," xe grumbled, finally locating their device and searching for Zinvis' message.

"What, with that grunt?” Indignation sharpened Zinvis’ tone, caused them to turn away from Bru sharply to focus their attention on the wall. After a second’s silence, their voice was once again cool and emotionless. “Perhaps such an action is acceptable to other Mercenaries, but I am afraid that I do not recognize it as a proper thanks."

“How old are you?”

The question was unexpected, and asked with an entirely curious voice, though it was possible that Bru was faking xyr tone. It took a moment for Zinvis to reply with a dismissive, “That has nothing to do with the matter at hand.”

Bru, it appeared, was not willing to concede on the point. “Have you even worked with anyone outside of your allotment before?” xe pressed Zinvis, anger creeping in on their voice. “Anyone higher in echelon than you? Apart from a supervisor, someone giving you orders.”

“No,” admitted Zinvis, watching Bru warily. What was the Mercenary hoping to achieve with this line of questioning? Ey entertained the thought of finding out forcibly for a second, before dismissing the notion. There was little use expending energy on something like that.

Hiding xyr initial surprise (how young was Zinvis?), Bru spoke bluntly, enough force behind their voice to make Zinvis fall silent. "Then I will tell you this once, since it's your first time: live with it. I have both seniority and rank on you, Zinvis. You may be a high echelon for your age, but I am higher." Bru gestured from Zinvis' horns to xyr own, which were much more extensively marked and a fair deal longer. "No one working with you is going to comply with what you want just because you want it if they're a higher echelon than you. When you start working with others that are below you, then you can do this kind of thing."

Xe took a step towards Zinvis, who tried not to flinch away. "But not with me."

At Zinvis' cowed silence, Bru seemed to take offense. Xe clicked their mouth sharply. "Do you understand?"

There was a few moments' pause before Zinvis spoke. "Yes, Mercenary Brutaer."

"Good." Apparently satisfied, Bru stepped back and cast a glance around the ship. "The course is already plotted, yes?"

"Of course." It was preposterous to think otherwise, and Zinvis could not help scoffing. "Still, there is information you do not yet know--"

Ey were rather abruptly cut off by Bru. "I can get to know it on the way. Let's move."

Zinvis began to protest. "Mercenary--"

Once again, Bru cut em off. "Now."

"...fine," grumbled Zinvis. In only about a minute, the ship had left the hangar and was on its way to the planet called Earth.

*~*~*~*

There was a stark contrast between the expressions on the faces of Zinvis and Brutaer--or, technically speaking, their disguises--at the sound the motorcycle made. While Bru seemed amused, and enthusiastic about driving it ("At least humans know how to make an automobile," xe had remarked), Zinvis had... some doubts about trusting Brutaer to safely drive xyrself into the city. Due to the Source's interference, and the need for secrecy, the ship had needed to land at a secluded area some distance from the city itself. Technically speaking, the two were supposed to be using the car mainly, the motorcycle being there as a potential second option for 'greater maneuverability' or something.

As ey lifted the last of their supplies into the car, Zinvis eyed Bru warily. Xe was seated on the motorcycle, a dark red helmet seated (reluctantly) on xyr head. The rest of xyr clothing, which xe'd picked out of the wide array of human clothes the two had been provided, consisted of a black leather jacket over a short-sleeved bright red shirt, denim jeans, and combat boots. Hidden on xyr person, and in not-technically-accurate-to-human-technology additions to the motorcycle (which were nothing compared to the car's modifications) were a variety of weapons.

Zinvis, on the other hand, was unarmed (apart from eir abilities),wearing a simple navy cardigan over a light blue floral-patterned shirt and a white skirt reaching to eir knees, blue flats completing the outfit. Ey had pulled their hair back into a ponytail, instead of keeping it down.

"Hurry up, Zinvis," Bru grunted, turning to face em and seeing the uncertain expression on eir face. Xe looked almost offended. "What, do you not trust me to drive this thing? I've driven similar enough vehicles before, you know. And besides, if all else fails they have built in an autopilot of sorts, or as much as they could manage in the time they had." As if to prove xyr point, a glowing display suddenly lit up. "I should be doubting your ability to drive that thing, if anything."

"The motorcycle was an afterthought," Zinvis retorted, stiffening. "The car has much more advanced modifications and is significantly safer than that accident waiting to happen." Decisively, ey walked over to the door and opened it, seating emself in the driver's seat. Before closing the door, they added, "Do not harm yourself, Mercenary Brutaer. That would be a detriment to our mission."

"Alright, let's get moving then!" Impatient as xe was, Bru was already on the road before Zinvis had actually even closed the door. Ey very nearly clicked eir mouth before realizing it wasn't very feasible in the disguise, and then decided that ey just ought to follow Brutaer and make sure xe didn't crash and hurt xyrself. That would, after all, be a detriment to the mission.

*~*~*~*

When Andy walked into the empty warehouse, Guy and Bloons trailing a few feet behind him, he was met with the unexpected image of Elder and Max seated on metal folding chairs beside a folding table. The two girls were heatedly discussing something he couldn’t quite make out, a piece of paper and Elder’s phone between them. Max held a pencil in her hand and was either drawing or writing something on the paper--maybe both.

“Hey,” he called out hesitantly, to warn them he was there. Almost immediately, both of them turned to look at them. Max looked excited. Elder looked… “...why are you wearing a surgical mask?”

Elder pulled the black mask down below her chin, revealing a wide grin. She said, as if it were obvious, “Because it’s my hella superhero costume!” Eager to show her ‘hella superhero costume off,’ she scooted the chair out from the table and stood up, spreading her arms out wide. It was then that he noticed she was also wearing a sleeveless, bright red hoodie, and under it, a black long-sleeved shirt and black jeans. A pair of blood red fingerless gloves completed the outfit.

After taking it all in, Andy opened his mouth to ask a question, only to get interrupted by Max. “We’re designing mine right now. It’s a bit fancier than Elder’s.” She glanced down at the paper and then back up at him, sheepish. “...and a bit more expensive.”

Once again, Andy opened his mouth and was interrupted, this time by Elder pointing at him and exclaiming, “Which is where you come in!” He gestured at himself, completely bemused. How was he supposed to get the money for a superhero costume, of all things? He wasn’t entirely sold on the whole ‘superhero’ idea in the first place. Scratch that, he was pretty squarely against it.

“Yes, you! You just need to--oh, hey Guy.” Whatever explanation Elder intended to give was abruptly cut off as she waved with her non-pointing hand at Guy and Bloons. Guy gave her a once-over, raised his eyebrows, and walked over to the table to pull out a chair for himself. Bloons rolled his eyes, but similarly didn’t seem… too shocked by the whole thing, merely following after Guy.

When they’d seated themselves, Elder’s attention immediately returned to Andy. “Where was I? Oh! Yeah. You just need to help me with a plan of mine. It’s not illegal, don’t worry.”

“...I wasn’t going to ask that in the first place.” Suddenly, Andy looked concerned. “But now that you said that, I’m worried.”

“Don’t be a dumbbutt, Andy. Hey, where’s Dragon? He’ll miss out on hearing my master plan to make us all into superheroes. We’re not going to be actually fighting crime, just to clarify. Just, you know… it’ll be fun! We have superpowers, dude!” She gestured excitedly, looking a bit ridiculous with the surgical mask still tucked under her chin. “Might as well have some fun with ‘em, am I right?”

“Well, I guess,” he conceded, but was still far from sold on the idea. “Oh--” A bit belatedly, he realized Elder had asked about Dragon. “I’m not sure where Dragon is. Maybe someone should give him a call?”

“Good idea. I… have I got his number? You do, right?” Elder dived into the pocket of her hoodie to get her phone, then paused. “Where’s my phone?”

“Right here,” Bloons said helpfully, picking it up from the table and waving it in the air. “Why were you googling--”

Max quickly cut him off with a ‘for science,’ and looked at the screen with disappointment. “It wasn’t much help anyway.”

“Yeah, shame,” Elder sighed. “How come nobody’s had the idea to put LED lights in their gloves before? Or at least, how come nobody’s recorded how they did it? Maybe we’re not searching with the right terms. Max, can you toss my phone over here?”

As if of its own will, the phone left Bloon’s hand and floated over to Elder. She exited the browser and was tapping away before a voice called out. “I’m not late to the party, am I?”

“Hey Dragon!” Andy grinned and waved over to him, Dragon waving back as he walked over to the others.

“Hey.” He came to a stop next to Andy, glancing around at the others. “Did I miss anything?”

“Nothing! Actually, now that you’re here, I can get to explaining my master plan.” Elder shoved her phone into her pocket. “Guys, we are gonna be motherfucking superheroes.”

I've literally worked on nothing pertaining to 1001 aus,tfc, or infidels recently. I have actually been writing actual fanfiction because that's how I cope with things being over.

Also, I came up with a Sad Idea and I might have realized I'm not sure how to end the fic happily. Help.
