She asked for hugsss for Tommy.
And here is my thank-you fic for drawing me such a gorgeous picture!
Tommy had been missing for a week. Billy had last seen him when they were helping the Avengers clean up some alien trash. Some trash that had access to a teleporter gun. And with the luck their team had it really should have come to no surprise that Tommy got hit during one of the few seconds that he actually stopped. Billy had seen the grunt line up the shot, but had been too slow with his casting to blow up the gun before Tommy had been hit. The gun did explode, though. Two seconds after Tommy was flung to the furthest reaches of space. Billy froze when he realized Tommy wasn’t just zipping off faster than the eye could see.
If it wasn’t for Teddy Billy would have followed his brother, because as he stood there like an idiot another grunt lined up a shot. Teddy threw the grunt into a brick wall before pulling Billy out of the middle of the fight. Teddy led him to a sturdy wall where he could take cover while he collected himself before launching himself back into the fray. It wasn’t much longer until the battle wound down. The aliens retreated to their ship, and tried to escape to space. Seeing the only chance of finding his brother again attempt to flee Billy panicked. He grabbed a hold of the ship with his magic and embedded it in the ground. Blue energy fell around the ship, digging into the ground. They pushed their thrusters to the limit, but the shield didn’t budge.
When the engines finally died Billy let go. He shook off the head rush that he associated with quickly draining his magic and stumbled to the hatch. He ignored the harsh mumblings of the Avengers and she shocked silence of his team. Using what was left of his power, he ripped the hatch off, sending it flying to the side. The aliens looked terrified, and quickly surrendered to him. Billy didn’t care about that. He approached the leader, grabbed him by the front of his shirt, and pulled him so that they were eye to eye.
“Where’s my brother? Where did you send him?” The leader couldn’t seem to be able to get his mouth to work. Billy shook him as his voice rose an octave in fear and anger. “WHERE DID YOU SEND TOMMY?”
Heavy footsteps came running into the cabin and Teddy’s hand covered his. He gently pried his hands away from the alien’s shirt. Teddy moved him out of the ship and over to where the team was sitting stunned. It wasn’t everyday that they were reminded of the sheer power that Billy could use if he wanted to. Billy just held onto his boyfriend with all he had, burying his face in the crook of Teddy’s neck. He was drained; physically, emotionally, magically. But it was only when Captian America and Hawkeye, the old Hawkeye, walked up and told them that even though the aliens didn’t know where they sent Tommy, they were going to do everything in their power to find him that Billy finally let himself pass out.
He must have scared everyone to death with that stunt. The team was taken back to the mansion to rest, and Billy woke up in a decent sized bed with Teddy asleep beside him. He was under observation by some doctor to make sure he hadn’t permanently injured himself by counteracting the laws of physics using only his will. And despite Teddy’s best effort, Billy had heard the gossip in the halls. They were scared he was going to turn out just like his mom. That he was going to possibly get everyone killed if he ever lost control like that again. The saddest part, to Billy at least, was that he hadn’t lost control. They all thought that just because he put everything he had into trying to do something to help his brother he was going to snap and, and, and what? What good could possibly come from killing the few people on the planet who could find Tommy? Did they think that he was going to do some insane blood ritual to summon his brother or something? He just curled up tighter on the bed, pulling the comforter in close.
Teddy had barely left his side while he recovered, and helped keep most of the horrible thoughts away, but Billy had sent him to go get something to eat with the team. He was just going to sleep anyway, and Teddy didn’t need to keep himself cooped up just because he pulled a stupid stunt. And, even though he’d never ever tell Teddy, he wanted to be alone. No, actually he wanted Tommy. Only Tommy.
It took over an hour to convince him, but now Billy was regretting it. He swore he could feel the distance between everyone on the team, with most of the warmth a few miles away, and one pinprick so tiny he was sure that he was imagining it. He felt his eyes start to water as he realized how alone he was.
“Iwantmybrotherback. Iwantmybrotherback. Iwantmybrotherback.” His magic was still too tired to do anything. He wiped his eyes and tried to go to sleep.
It was another week before Billy felt any magic return to him. He had returned home to his parents, who were rather angry at him for not calling and recklessly endangering himself. They hugged him until he felt like he was going to pass out. They didn’t ask about Tommy. He returned to school. He was glad that Teddy had transferred to his school when he moved in with them, because he didn’t think he could stand to see Tommy’s empty seat by himself. The only thing he didn’t, couldn’t return to was patrol. Having no magic and going out was like painting a huge target on his back, and Teddy made sure he didn’t follow them by enlisting the help of his little brothers.
The twins mission was to keep Billy in the living room where everyone could see him and not let him leave until their parents got home. They spent their time getting Billy to help them on their homework, read them a book, play a tie-breaker round on any videogame they managed to get their hands on, anything. And it worked. Right up until Billy felt his magic reserves build up enough to try another crazy stunt. He managed to sneak out the front door while the twins were focused on some hard homework and ran into the city. He avoided the areas that were usually patrolled by his team, dodged Spiderman, and successfully made it to Central Park. He found a secluded grove of trees and sat down. He reached into himself and pulled all of his magic, focusing it into a single idea. A single spell. He was glowing like a neon sign, but he didn’t care. He didn’t notice when he began to float. When his magic began to pulse out from him.
Magic exploded from him.
The pain was immense. His magic had never hurt him before, but now it seemed to be trying to rip him in half. Claws drug themselves up his legs. His head was in a vice. His back arched as he screamed. He vaguely heard Teddy screaming at someone in the background as his chest burned like he had been stabbed by a white hot poker. He felt his magic reach out to further than he had ever imagined. There, beyond the furthest reaches of his imagination he felt something so familiar, so Tommy, that he grabbed onto it with all he had and just pulled. He smelled ozone and felt lightning dance over his face. He felt fire burn his arms and ice freeze his back. He felt himself ripping apart, but he never let go. The more intense the pain got, the harder he pulled.
And as quickly as it began, it stopped.
Billy was vaguely aware that there was something large and heavy on him, pinning him to the ground. As he opened his eyes to the devastation that he caused to the surrounding area, he looked at what, no who, was on him. Tommy. He looked tired, cold, dirty, and hungry, but he was here. He’d done it. With a sob he launched himself at his twin. He held on tighter than he ever had before.
“I thought I had lost you,” he cried. “I thought I was never going to see you again.” He felt Tommy tentatively return the hug.
“You can’t get rid of me that easily.” Billy just cried harder into his twin. He didn’t register when the rest of the team picked their way through the uprooted trees and burned grass joined them in the small crater. He didn’t notice when Teddy started the group hug that everyone else joined in. He only felt Tommy shifting uncomfortably with all of the attention. Then he felt himself pass out.
Needless to say Teddy was beyond pissed off at him. He had gotten the ‘how could you be so stupid?’ and the ‘that was extremely reckless’ speeches twice each, and the ‘if you ever worry me like that again’ threat six times. Billy just smiled at him and pulled him onto the queen sized bed he was sharing with Tommy each time. Tommy would then let him know that he didn’t want any cuddles and would try to leave. Billy would just attach himself to one of Tommy’s arms and roll over, pinning it underneath him while he cuddled with Teddy. Tommy’s powers were acting strange, and his super speed hadn’t returned. Or so he kept telling everyone who saw him cuddling.
“Are you going to get this cuddly every time this happens?” Tommy asked with a huff. Billy just turned over from facing Teddy to completely attaching himself to his twin. Tommy sighed. “Your boyfriend wants your cuddles. I don’t, remember.” Billy did, but he didn’t care. Tommy would learn to love the cuddle. Teddy chuckled.
“You heard what Beast said. Billy wished so hard to get you back that he used up all of his magic. Again. Last time he didn’t get what he ‘wanted’, and he got really depressed. This time he did, and until he builds up his reserves again, he’s going to latch onto the thing he ‘wanted’ last.” Billy felt Tommy shift and try to push him off. Again. It didn’t work that time either.
“Yeah, but I didn’t think he meant the latching on thing literally.” Teddy just laughed and wrapped his arms around Billy.
“I don’t think he did either, but you know how magic is.”
“Bat-shit crazy?” Teddy just relaxed into the bed.
“Go to bed Tommy. You have a long day of taking care of a cuddly Billy tomorrow.”
“Fuck you Altman.”
And all was right with the world.
Okay Ruby….Ruby Ruby Ruby ….aahhHHhhHHhhHHHhhh
Jokes aside, what am I going to do with you darling. I try to do a gift for you and still you give me something back. Honey, we’re going to have to work on this.
You know with every story you write it just gets more and more in character. Not that they were ever OOC, but the understanding of the boys definitely seems to be growing with each story that you write.
This, I really love your ability to jump into the different personas. You write them all differently and it’s refreshing. You oftentimes see writers who tend to project onto characters but you definitely seem to make a genuine effort to write them as they are (in your headcanon of course)
Fact: I love angst
Fact2: I love fics where Billy haunts people a little with the potential of his power
Fact3: The above facts are in this story
Okay, not a fact but, who cares.
I just love seeing Billy push himself and endanger himself for his team. It’s kind of bittersweet because they’re wary of him but DDx HE’S DOING IT FOR YOU GUYS?! Dx where’s the love??
Teddy and his distractions, I just adore this thought, this concept of him bribing the twins. ‘If you do this for me, I’ll…’ And Billy biding his time until he has enough magic returned to try again.
The importance he places in his friend’s wellbeing is something I love about him. There’s selfishness to Billy in some aspects of his personality but when it comes to the people around him, while his actions are often foolish there’s good intentions behind them
Your description of the spell he used to pull Tommy back to him was wonderful. The tension, the fact that it was probably still too soon got be exerting that power, the pain of it all…mmmm hurt Billy, mmmmm
And then the picture.
You really do such a wonderful job, it’s so enjoyable to read your stories and what a fluffy, sweet and adorable ending. Tommy, suck it up buddy. You need some hugs and you’re damn well getting them!
Thank you Rubyyy
Now…tea and then more reblobs
