nick? i don't think that's the right time to bring it up, but since i probably won't get another chance so soon... i just want to thank you for existing, really. see, let's say i have a lot of struggles with my family, they're harassing me, saing things i don't want to repeat. i used to take it, but since i know about your story.. i don't know i feel a bit better.. stronger. it maybe sounds stupid, but i just want to thank you for that.
Nick: You fight for yourself. Fight for yourself because you matter. When you think you’re alone in the world, when you think there’s no reason to hold your head up high, you remember that. You matter to me. You’re important to me. And you go fight for yourself.
Ty, tell Zane kitties can smell zombies -- well, if they can smell raw fish under three sealed thermo bags, I'm pretty sure they can smell zombies miles away -- and that they are great fighters when it comes to defending their territory. I bet this would convince him to let you have as many cats as you want in your bookstore.
Nick: Oh my god TY, what would you do with your kitties if zombies happen?!
Ty: Oh no … they’d have to be protected. they’d have to learn how to defend themselves! I’d have to teach them about warfare and survival.
TS+ Zane(although, Zane is pretty much TS) I just wanted you guys to know that I'm very jealous of what you have and that when I think of heroes I think of you. Fuck DC and Marvel, you guys are the real thing. Sometimes you're pissed at each other, like Nick and Ty, but I know Nick that if some asshole came after Ty you'd beat him to a pulp cause you're a family. A family of heroes and I just wanted to thank you for all that you give us. Wish I had something like that xxxx -Minion
nick, if you could taste colors, what do you think they would taste like?
Nick: You CAN taste colors!
Kelly: Not this again, oh god.
Nick: You can! You know what red tastes like? It tastes RED. And people can be colors. Ty’s orange, did you know that? He’s this bright orange that flares sometimes. And Kelly, Kelly is a very vibrant blue.
Nick: YEs. It’s a beautiful blue. God, you’re beautiful.
Kelly: I’m blue? Not Kelly green?
Nick: why would you be green? Green means different things than blue and you’re blue.
Kelly: Nicko … babe. Let’s go to bed, huh?
Nick: Digger is the scariest color of purple I’ve ever seen.
Kelly: Nick …
Nick: You can taste colors. And you can smell memories. And Kelly is the most beautiful blue I’ve ever seen..
Kelly, when you watched gay porn right after you and Nick had your first night togeher it didn't realy do much for you. How about now? Have you tried watching it again, other than the home videos you and Nick make?
Kelly: Nothing could top the home videos we make, so why bother?
Zane, since it seems inevitable that you will have a cat, you should start a preemptive move by negotiating about which breed would be acceptable for you. I heard that ragdoll breed nice. Unless you were to get one from a certain gay romance author.
Ty: Oh, ragdolls are supposed to be all fluffy and sweet and laid back … I bet I could convince Zane to get two of those!
Nick: My gut is saying run but I don’t know why.
Kelly: Maybe you’re finally coming down from your high?
Nick - the worst happens and it's zombie apocalypse. Everyone is a zombie except for you and Kelly, and probably Zane. (It could be argued that drugged Ty was kind of a zombie already.) Who gets the first headshot?
Nick: Nobody. We sail out on my boat and frolic and fish and fuck until we get tired of each other and then to each their own end.
I'm sorry, but did Ty say glass butt plug? Wouldn't a softer material be more comfortable? & less dangerous?
Ty: But the glass is beautiful. It has colored swirlies inside it. And it’s easy to clean. A softer material would be, well. soft. And who wants soft when you want something nice and hard up your ass, am I right?
Kelly: Oh my god.
Zane: Tell them the best part of the glass butt plug, Ty.
Ty; Oh! OH YEAH! It’s heavy enough, it can be used as a weapon if I can’t get to my gun or my knife.
Zane: There you are, potential home invaders. Explain that injury to the ER docs.
Ty: Ah hell. This might be a waisted question on drugged up Ty. Not that the truth came out and Richard Burns was AGAIN cleared of being dirty, are you still hurt that your faith in your Godfather was question by those close to you?
Ty: … I … I’m trying to think. I’m trying.
Zane: He’s actually got his fingers to his temples and he’s squinting.
Nick: Wasted question … drugged up … pun … heh. Heh heh. EHEHEHEHEHEH!
Owen have you freaked out since learning that Kelly sucks Nick’s dick?
Owen: Well Jesus! I try not picture it! Or think about it! I mean I’m trying to be supportive over here, but everyone has their own speed, you know?
Nick: Hey! You know what, you were a dick when Ty came out to us.
Kelly: Oh Nicko, where are you going with this? Please…..please come down from that Gatorade soon.
Nick: No! It’s just, Ozone’s being judged for his gut reaction. And Yeah, it was shitty reaction. But you know what you’ve seen since? You’ve seen him put his back to Ty’s in a firefight. You’ve seen him comfort Kelly when he surprise! came out during my surgery. You’ve seen him tell me, when I was sick and needed to hear it, that it as okay. He’s trying, and he’s trying hard to come to terms with the fact that not one, but two of his teammates were bi all those years and hiding it from him. He’s also trying hard to understand that Kelly is exploring new territory. And he’s trying So GOdddamn HARD. But all he keeps gettting is shit from people because of that first gut reaction. I think it’s shitty. I think it’s shitty he’s not getting a little credit for trying. Because you know what? Some people don’t try.
Owen: Irish …
Nick: My own family didn’t try as hard as Ozone’s trying. He’s still here. He’s still standing here beside us taking shit and owning up to that gut reaction and he’s TRYING. HE’S TRYING TO UNDERSTAND IT.
Owen: Irish, man, you’d fight a wall if it offended someone you loved, you know that? Jesus fucking Christ, how can you get all high and start ranting and make me cry? I love you, brother. Now go sleep that shit off, fuck.
Nick! What's on your kink list? How many of them have you done with Kelly? Favorites?
Nick: I’ve been told I’m not alloowed to answer the kink questions anymore. also, that was a baby raccoon, not a kitten. also, Ty and I aren’t allowed to sit on the same piece of furniture until one of us sobers up.
Ty: Also, I had such a raging crush on Nick in Basic. I mean …
Kelly: I’m taking charge of erasing questions from now on.
Zane: I’m curious as to how they’ve never fucked before.
Digger: I’m making bets on they did.
Owen: And both were too drunk or high to remember.
Nick: I am that high now. That was not a kitten … it was a very mean raccoon.
Okay, seeing Ty and Nick high as kites, Zane and Kelly being gleeful on the sidelines, and Owen and Digger not knowing quite what to do is hilarious. SO, if someone were to make Digger high, how would that go?
Digger: Oh, I don’t like being high. I like a nice alcohol buzz, but being high feels like being out of control. And frankly seeing Ty and Nick acting like fools tonight … say no to drugs, kids.
Kelly, please describe Nick to us. How YOU see Nick when you look at him.
Kelly: I’m going to exclude what I’m seeing tonight because … God bless his soul, he’s so high and cuddly and cute right now, he’s stupid and I love him.
Normally, Nick is this giant pillar of marble to me. He was cut from this mold, this classic Irish mold. He’s so Irish that he’s the colors of the flag, his hair is orange and his eyes are green! Auburn curls that don’t do anything they’re supposed to do and get more and more red the more sun they see. He gets freckles like someone painted a streak across his face from cheekbone to cheekbone and nowhere else, but his back and his shoulders (good god, he’s got shoulders that are perfect for grabbing onto, just FYI) are so scarred you don’t see the freckles there. He has whip marks, and tattoos and I … I can’t keep my fingers from tracing any of them. His scars and his tattoos, I trace them all the time, and he gets annoyed and starts swatting my hands away.
And his eyes are … they’re this color of green that’s not really natural, and they change with his moods. Sometimes they’re so dark, so dark they’re like looking into a jungle, into the parts that are so thick you can’t see anything but the green darkness. And other times they get lighter or brighter, green like the sea in a storm, green like the tossed insides of his soul, and sometimes they’re so green that I wake up and see how bright his eyes are and I just think, ‘oh fuck, we might end up in jail today.’
He’s just … he’s such a beautiful soul, and he’s such a handsome man, and you add them together with that fucking smirk of his and I … even tonight, as goddamn DUMB and HIGH as he is tonight … I fucking love him.
