Kansas City, MO, Tuesday

Between work and birthday celebrations and whatever, Kate didn't feel like she'd had a lot of time to just veg out lately. So that was a pretty obvious plan for today since she had the day off. And she was a world class vegger so it was going to be good. She had her laptop, she had candy (the world's most nutritious late breakfast!), and she was in her pajamas. Everything was pretty much perfect. And her first order of the day? Scrolling back on her Tumblr dash for as far back as she could before her browser would inevitably freeze under the load. Hey, she'd missed a whole bunch of shit. Like all the way past Halloween. Maybe having been doing stuff other than Tumbling meant that she was an adult.

Of course she probably lost all her adult points by doing what she was doing right now. But whatevs. It was fun, and it passed the time, and she was seeing some pretty funny shit and snickering to herself. And then she came across a post collecting a bunch of highly obscure characters and internet phenomena Halloween costumes. And one of them looked familiar. Like, really familiar. Really, really, really, 'I ruined my life for a while over that costume' kind of familiar.

Kate clicked on the source link for the post in question. And yeah, there it was in the tags.

#princess valhalla hawkwind

So, Kate almost choked on her Twizzler. Once she was over her coughing fit and near-death experience, she typed the words into the search bar, because no way was there going to be anything else in there. Had to be just some random person digging up a low quality video from two years ago and making a costume 'for the lulz' or something. Had to be.

Except there was a bunch of recent fan art in the tag.

Some of it was actually pretty good.

"... Whaaaat."

"What's the matter?" Bod asked when he slipped into the room, carrying Seamus. "Everything all right?"

Bod put Seamus on the ground and he skittered over to rub himself against Kate's legs because he was a cuddly little puppy.

"About what?" asked Bod, stepping closer.

Bod peered over and took a look at the screen. It took him a moment or two to realize what he was looking at but realization eventually dawned and Bod stood up.

"Ah." Yes, he remembered that costume and the memories that were attached to it. "Well. That looks interesting."

It wasn't his favorite thing in the world hence the rather robotic reply. But, he knew there'd been good parts for her. "I'm going to get something to drink. Would you like anything?"

Bod nodded and disappeared inside the kitchen. He returned rather quickly, passing her a glass of Coke before taking his own bottle of water and wandering back towards the bedroom.

Seamus stayed where he was, wrapped around her feet.

It was always going to seem strange and skeevy (if he was one to use that word) to Bod just because of the things he associated the whole situation with. It was hard to change his perception after so long and a lot of rebuilding.

But, he was going to let her have her time. He'd gone back to the bedroom to both make the bed and sort through some clothes he'd cleaned yesterday.

Bod accepted the hug easily, not sure why he was getting hugged but not minding it all. He was quiet for a few moments.

"What's this for?" he asked. "Not that you have to have a reason but you were pretty busy just a few minutes ago."

"You can go back to reading, if you'd like," Bod offered with a small smile. He held her a little tighter. "I'd just rather not get involved, if that's all right."

"Mm. Apparently, you made a mark on some people," Bod remarked quietly.
therewaslife: (→ | oh yes?)

[personal profile] therewaslife 2013-11-05 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
"And I am glad there are some people out there that see her as a superhero," Bod said after a moment of thought. "I'm probably never going to see the whole thing in an unbiased way and I apologize for that. But, I'm glad you made a positive mark on people."

"You can do whatever you'd like and I'll still always see you as you," he told decisively. "I might not get involved in all decisions but I'll still support you."

"Thank you," he said, smiling at her. "You're quite amazing yourself."

"Yes," Bod said, leaning closer and kissing her lightly. Of course she could get a kiss. Of course.

[personal profile] therewaslife 2013-11-05 04:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Bod responded to that less light kiss easily. He could do it for reassurance and he could do it just because he enjoyed it.

That was easy.
