And then Painter remembered it hates me.
And stopped working.
But I was just playing around with an old drawing anyway so it doesnt matter if it’s a bit unfinished
S-so, I wrote something. It’s terrible. And short. But I got inspired by that gorgeous thing up there by Julie and couldn’t help myself. Enjoy!
“IwanttosendthemawayIwanttosendthemawayIwanttosendthemawayIwanttosendthemawayIwanttosend—” Teddy hears Wiccan’s chant cut out above him, and he knows what’s going to happen next without even looking at the witch, who is brilliant enough to decide to start a spell to transport more enemies than any of them can count two hundred feet above the ground when he knows full well that the completion of said spell will wipe his powers out completely.
Teddy doesn’t let him fall more than fifty feet before catching him, and he has to bite his lip to keep himself from grinning at the not-quite-surprised sound Billy makes when he does, the other boy’s arms immediately flinging around his neck, though they both know Teddy will never drop him—and even if he did, Teddy would just catch him again.
They both get a little caught up in each other when Billy catches his eye, which just makes him hover for a long moment, smiling back, before Billy coughs quietly. “Uh, T? We’re kind of still in the air.”
Billy loves it when Teddy blushes. Even when he’s green. “Oh-right. Going down, then, Mr. Kaplan?”
Tommy’s already there when Teddy lands, and he’s got his arms crossed, tapping a foot like he’s been waiting there all day. Teddy rolls his eyes as he very carefully sets Billy down, though neither of them are too keen on getting more than a couple centimeters away from the other. Billy leans on Teddy as surreptitiously as possible, and Teddy lays a supporting arm across his back as Eli, Kate and Cassie rush over to make sure Billy’s okay—and in Eli and Tommy’s case, to tell him how reckless he is.
Billy just nods and agrees with them, and Kate puts a hand on Eli’s shoulder before he gets the chance to launch into one of his lectures. They all pretend that he won’t do anything reckless the next time the opportunity arises, even though every single one of them knows that he will, without hesitation. Eli just sighs and reminds everyone that he’ll be late for patrol tomorrow because he’s going to see his grandpa after school before Teddy scoops a visibly faltering Billy into his arms again.
Teddy just grunts in response as they fly over the park.
“You’re the best boyfriend ever.”
Dashhh, can I first off say that it’s great to see you again
And you come bearing gifts? I feel so special ;w;
This is so freaking cute tho and so THEM. I really cannot express that emphatically enough. It just feels like them.
I just adore the fond exasperation resonating from Teddy. He knows Billy so well that he has just accepted that he’s going to do these things and all he can really do about it is catch him and be there for him.
And Billy - not quite looking at the full picture. Billy has always struck me as someone who lives in the present. Not so concerned with whats to come…even if that is him plummeting to the ground after pushing himself too far.
Mr Kaplan…can I just. As soon as I read that. I imagined them AFTER theyre engaged. Jokingly calling eachother the others surname. XD
And teh end, omg they are so so cute FFF
I love the concern from the team, theyre such a tight knit little bitty force and it’s just so freaking cute.
Seriously, my teeth hurt at how cute this is.
You should stop
Thank you so much Dashhh
