    Brainiac 5 / Querl Dox (Earth 54)

    Age: 21 (in 3053)

    Powers: Cosmic Level Intellect, Technopathy, Cyberpathy

    Bio: The direct descendent of both Brainiac and Vril Dox, Querl Dox was among the first heroes to join the Legion of Superheroes, a revitalized 31st century version of the Justice Legion Unlimited. During a crisis involving cosmic rifts, he was the one to greet Nia Nal, who had been flung into the far future from the 2020s. Later on, Brainiac 5 himself was the one to induct Nia into the Legion under her Dream Girl moniker. The couple that fights evil together stays together, after all.

It's so beautiful to look at where they started and #where they were in the finale. They've come so far and I'm like a proud mama duck #Now give us the spinoff so we can see it continue!! #mine#my gifs #otp: what does love feel like?

    Brainy & Nia + [I] Love You
    bonus:
    #supergirl#supergirledit#dctvedit#arrowverseedit#brainiaedit#brainiac 5#nia nal#brainia#dreamdox #I played very fast and loose with the phrase I love you here but I refused to leave some of these moments out so sue me #i almost certainly left some out but I was doing this entirely by memory so...whoops? #also I wholeheartedly believe that Nia actually says it more than Brainy - hear me out - we just see more of Brainy's because he's the kind #to say it in more 'dramatic' life or death situations whereas Nia's the type to say it every morning as she's leaving for work #anyway every single one of these has a special place in my heart #EVERY. SINGLE. ONE #Also I'm counting that bonus one because Nia almost certainly knew Brainy was watching and Brainy knew EXACTLY who she meant #plus at this point they were both very clearly aware of the other's feelings and absolutely reciprocated but they were being dumbs #(Brainy might've said the three words themselves first...but Nia said it first in her own way) #mine#my gifs #otp: what does love feel like? #brainia+

    Nia’s heart was racing so hard from their latest group dance that she almost didn’t notice when the music abruptly changed pace.

    It was only when Alex swept Kelly into her arms on the first beat of the new - slower - song that was playing that Nia realised what was going on at all.

    After that, the rest of the guests didn’t need much encouragement to start pairing off, quickly following suit around the brides, swaying together in a matched rhythm to the soft plunks of piano keys that soon overtook the lively music that that had preceded it.

    It was a warm and gentle instrumental cover. One that Nia quickly recognised.

    “Dream A Little Dream of Me?” She smirked, shaking her head. “Seriously?”

    “Purely coincidental, I’m sure,” a voice said from behind her.

    Nia’s smirk grew to a full-fledged grin in a heartbeat.

    She was still getting used to it. To seeing him and knowing that he was actually there, for real this time. Not just an illusion her sleep deprived mind might’ve conjured up in the early hours of the morning, not a voice of a stranger in a crowd she’d mistaken for his one too many times when she'd been out alone.

    No, this time when Nia turned, it was the Brainy she had been far too afraid to imagine as a substitute that greeted her. A Brainy who was alive and well, who was present and with her in that moment – a Brainy who was smiling just as brightly as she was.

    And, as she glanced down, she realised that he had his hand extended out towards her.

    Nia took it immediately, squeezing him tight. “Oh, really?” she teased.

    “Indeed,” Brainy said, offering a secretive smile. “After all, what are the odds this song was requested for the express purpose of having the opportunity to slow dance with the love of my life?” With that, Brainy tugged Nia’s arm above her head, directing her into a quick yet expert spin that sent the world tumbling out of focus.

    Not that she minded. So long as Brainy was holding onto her, she knew that he'd never let her fall.

    Nia's face warmed as she stumbled the final step into Brainy’s arms. She was practically moulded into his chest from this distance, the familiar warmth of his life projectors blossoming across patches of her dress. Brainy watched her with a tender smile, opening his embrace up to her when she pressed herself tighter against him, tucking her face into the welcoming curve of his shoulder.

    She breathed him in, closing her eyes. “I’m sure you could tell me those odds,” she murmured, her lips teasing a wayward strand of blond hair that had curled by her boyfriend’s ear. “No more secrets, remember?”

    Electricity danced up her spine when Brainy’s hands slid across her back. “Then, I concede that the odds were incredibly high,” he admitted, his mouth lingering for a long moment by her jaw. “And would be an absolute certainty... if you believe this to be an acceptable romantic gesture.”

    Nia’s fingers dug appreciatively into Brainy’s shoulder. “It’s perfect.”

    They fell into step with each other then, the rhythm of the music guiding them just as much as their own bodies. Nia had always seen dancing sort of like fighting in a weird not-so-much kind of a way. Both mediums involved a certain level of dexterity and practice, but to get it just right with a partner... you had to know that person intimately, you had to feel them at your side, every step of the way.

    And so, for every step Brainy made, Nia was there to fill the space he’d left behind. It was simple, certain, performed as unthinkingly as breathing, and yet just a year or so ago, Nia knew they would have struggled finding their balance.

    Now, she could have stayed like this forever.

    As they both sank into the soft melody of Brainy’s chosen song, Nia let her fingers explore Brainy’s suit, running over the bumps and swirls of embroidery along the fabric. Every intricate detail was wonderful to her, because it only further cemented in her mind that this was happening at all. That this was all real.

    She’d imagined Alex and Kelly’s wedding a million times in her head over the last few weeks, in equal parts dreading it as much as she’d been excited. A part of her had felt jealous to see them get their happy ending after everything they'd been through, and she’d hated that part of herself so much for trying to bring down an otherwise momentous occasion for her found family.

    She’d felt so hollow standing in that green just a few hours ago, watching as Winn had walked around the corner with a lump in her throat large enough to choke her.

    Stars fading but I linger on, dear Still craving your kiss I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear Just saying this

    Even without the vocals being present, the memory still prompted phantom lyrics to play inside her mind. The meaning behind them was oddly telling, after all, speaking not just for how she’d felt in Brainy’s absence, but what Brainy himself had surely been going through as well.

    Neither one of them had known how the other was doing, had yearned for that peace of mind, to find themselves together again even when time and space had had another ending planned.

    Still, the lyrics continued in her head:

    Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you But in your dreams whatever they be Dream a little dream of me

    The afternoon sun was low enough in the sky to cast deep tones of red in patches of the grass, warming the atmosphere into a fuzzy glow that seemed to cancel out the people around her. Nia found it easy to imagine that they were alone together in that moment, two bodies swaying in motion under the twinkle of fairy lights, the enticing smells of a fresh cut lawn and candle smoke tantalising their senses.

    But, Nia didn’t have to dream any more, didn’t have to imagine anymore.

    And, just like that, it really seemed to sink in.

    This wasn’t just her reality for the moment, but for every moment that followed, even after the wedding was through. This wasn’t temporary, a means to draw out an already staggered and heart wrenching goodbye.

    No longer did they have to spend their days together living on stolen time.

    She had him now until forever, for however long that might be. The future they’d dreamt of building really and truly started today.

    The sun had finally found them both, and Nia’s heart swelled with the knowledge that this was only the beginning, that there would be thousands of moments just like this one to come.

    Impulsively, she pressed her lips into Brainy’s throat, grinning when he tightened his arms around her in response, burying his nose into her hair.

    For the first time in three weeks, she couldn’t wait to see what the next day was going to bring.

Nia is so clearly holding Brainy's hand before she starts clapping #whoever decided to go with the takes in 620 without little touches...We're not friends. #(especially since they weren't opposed to little moments like that since all the Lena/James ones during the ceremony were there! #Including her taking his hand during the vows!!) #STILL look at the way she's looking at him in the first one. Nicole Maines we don't deserve your hard work ma'am! #mine#my gifs #otp: what does love feel like? #*ebs #(it’s finale day over here - yeah we’re that far behind - and I’m emotional okay? 🥺😭)

    Just watching random episodes from each season I can already tell how much s4 is better. Nia and Brainy are so wonderful in this episode (4.02 Fallout). Nia inspiring James to stand up to alien hate at CatCo and Brainy being attacked for being exposed as an alien and confiding in Alex were such well written and powerful plotlines. And the shenanigans of Lena, Kara, and Eve stopping Mercy while Kara tries to keep sneaking off to change into Supergirl was so fun to watch. Even the ultimate Mercy/Lena showdown was exciting. They still spend too much time on their asshole dude villains but the overall theme of the season with the anti-alien agenda was done better than some of their other ripped from the headlines attempts. And I feel like all the characters benefited from the story (played key parts and worked together well as Superfriends)

    #supergirl#supergirledit#dctvedit#arrowverseedit#brainiaedit#brainiac 5#nia nal#brainia #on the one hand I love Nia taking matters into her own hands here and…taking the initiative #like homegirl spent three weeks thinking Brainy was dead she’s making sure she’s got their relationship locked DOWN #BUT I would also have liked to have seen it be a legitimate catch just for further confirmation from the universe that Brainy was right #And J’onn’s very much correct - Nia looks GOOD with a bouquet…hurry up and propose to her with a Legion ring Querl Dox!! #(I’m also obsessed with the dad and big brother vibes J’onn and Winn are radiating here it’s so cute and wholesome) #and watching Brainy’s face go from surprise to sheer joy when he runs his calculations is so precious #it’s clear that it was always something he wanted for them but the shock on his face when he realises it’s a 100% certainty #- which by the way have we ever heard Brainy give a 100% before? - #and how good that clearly feels to know that everything is going to be work out now that he’s back #(like the way he immediately runs the calculations when Winn comments because he *has* to know) #just the absolute wonder and love in this expression as he looks at her like ‘yup…that’s Nia Nal. The girl of my dreams and my future wife’ #(I also love when they let Brainy really smile like that - and especially how it’s almost always reserved for Nia 🥺) #and the way Nia’s smiling in the ninth gif. She’s so cute and so pleased with herself #this scene is so wholesome and I’m mad that it was cut from the wider release #because even the full confirmation of a brainia endgame aside #everything about the character interactions is just adorable (we didn’t get nearly enough J’onn/Brainy so that last gif in particular is 🥺) #mine#my gifs #otp: what does love feel like? #*ebs

    How could we have ever believed that they would make Supercorp canon, when the same group of people to decide this, thought “Lose yourself” by Eminem was a good choice for Nia to rap to Brainy?!?

    #supergirl#supergirledit#dctvedit#arrowverseedit#brainiaedit#brainia#brainiac 5#nia nal #that little back ground moment behind mon-el?? 🥺🥺 #the second and third gifs just kill me. Their expressions and the reluctance to let go #The way Brainy tries to look away in the second gif but his eyes just drift back up to hers like he can’t stop himself #and I don’t even know WHERE to begin with Nia’s expression in the third one. Nicole went all in #there’s so much love and pain in that expression and how’s she’s trying to keep her face as positive as possible #because it hurts but she doesn’t want that to be his last memory of her #they really wait until the last possible second to the point that they physically can’t hold onto each other any more before letting #their hands fall. And if you look at the Nia gif you can see there’s actually a tug on her arm before it drops #like Brainy had to physically pull himself away because Nia wouldn’t let him go #Can we also talk about the fact that Brainy doesn’t even try to catch up with Winn/Mon-El? #he hangs back as much as he can even once he’s turned his back to Nia #you can see the reluctance in him as he walks to the ship (I honestly wonder how long it took for him to make the decision once they #were back. Did he make it on the way? Did anyone try to change his mind? #how much of a pining mess was he for those three weeks? Worrying about how much he’d hurt Nia AGAIN #I have so many questions about what happened in those three weeks on his end… #(also that final gif always reminds me of every war film ever where the love interest watches her man going off to the front) #I am so glad this all worked out otherwise this scene would be absolutely unbearable #mine#my gifs #otp: what does love feel like? #*ebs
