--the last video store in America, Kingston__ The video store was about to go out of business and it showed. The listless cashier, who up until now had just been looking at a resigned Nik with dull eyes that matched her expressionless face looked away in shame when he caught her stealing glances. He was about to give up on his mission altogether when he finally spotted the familiar cover of one of Misery, arguably, the best psychological thrillers of all time. “Hot diggity dog,” he practically shouted as he reached for the box, only to be cockblocked by a woman wearing a mumu and a mean looking wig. Stunned by the woman’s aggressiveness, he was tempted to trip her on general principle, and he might have, had he not felt a presence nearby. Looking up, he was surprised to see yet another friend from New York. “Did you see that, the way that woman basically accosted me ? I don’t know what offends me more...the disrespect or the fact my Friday night is screwed now....anyway, what’s up, how ya been?” @mayaporter
She looks absolutely tiny on the changing mat, Jake thinks as he puts the last tab of a new diaper into place. There's no way Mac was ever this tiny.
"There we go, little lady." he says with a soft pat to her diaper. "Nice and clean."
She replies with a kicking leg, which seems to be her favourite mode of communication at the moment. Granted, she doesn't have many other options yet.
They brought her home only three weeks ago, and logically Jake knows she's probably not seeing him as anything but a soft, warm blob in her vision, but he swears she's staring right into his soul before her chubby cheeks break into a smile.
"I keep wanna call you princess." he whispers, almost conspiratorial, as he leans closer to her. "But your mama says you should have an elected title, instead."
He gets a little squeal for that, so she probably agrees with Amy. She looks exactly like her already, anyway - safe for the little swirls of her hair, curly and uncontrollable like his.
She had so much hair when she was born. More than Mac, and more than he'd ever seen on a baby when they held her up, covered in goo, screaming her little lungs out, her black curls matted to her still wonky head, and absolutely perfect through and through.
"I was so scared with your big brother." he continues his whisper while massaging her chubby little feet. "About everything. That I wouldn't know what to do even with all the books and classes. That I would mess up in a way I could never fix."
She kicks again, so he lets go of her feet and holds her hands instead, and her tight grip around his thumbs makes him smile. She's so strong already, she's gonna give Aunt Roro a run for her money.
" You'd think the second time round, I would have it all down by now, hm." he leans down to let a soft kiss flutter over her cheek, and it makes her squeal again, and it's the best reaction he's ever gotten for anything he does.
"But just between you and me? I'm still scared." he lets his face rest near hers for a moment, even if it means awkwardly bending over the changing table, so he can get a good, strong hit of the perfect baby smell he didn't know he missed, ever since Mac was more into mud and cheese-pops instead of baby powder and milk.
"When we cut into the pink cake, I was so scared. There's gonna be so much I don't know about in your life. We're gonna have to rely on Mama and Roro for a lot of that. But I'll learn, I promise."
She's soft and she smells perfect and the little snorty sounds of her breath as she blows a few spit bubbles are better than any Taylor Swift song. He wipes her chin carefully as he raises up again.
" I can't promise I won't ever mess up. I know that now. But I promise I'll learn, and do everything to make things right again if I do."
A squeak and two kicks this time, so he assumes she's accepted his promises. She'll be able to rely on them forever, he knows as he cradles her head to lift her up, settle her against his bare chest for some skin to skin.
She lets out a chirp - a chirp, like a little bird, a sound he's never heard from her big brother, and his heart has never felt fuller. The hand on her back holds her close while his thumb swipes over her teensy tiny shoulders and feels them relax.
She's a bit cold against his skin, and maybe that's because she's been lying on a changing mat with only a diaper on for a while there, but he also knows that she simply runs colder than Mac did. A feeling that had him confused and worried at first, too, until it made sense. She's Amy's girl, after all. She'll be just as much of a frostbite as her.
He'll keep them both warm.
Amy gives him a smile from their bed as he steps back into the bedroom, still shirtless and with the greatest baby in the world in his arms (Mac, asleep next to his mama under the blankets, is a toddler now, so he's allowed to make that statement). She reaches her hands forward when he climbs up next to her, and he hands his little treasure over with only the slightest reluctance. She kicks against his hands leaving her one last time before Amy settles her into her arm, makes sure she latches right before she starts to feed and gets ready to fill her fresh diaper yet again.
"You took a bit longer than usual." Amy whispers as Jake kisses her temple, then leans onto her shoulder to watch over his whole little family next to him. "everything okay?"
"Oh, yeah." he nods softly. "We just had a little heart to heart, Maya and I. From daddy to daughter."
gabriel said he saw the other ocelots after the wither storm exploded the first time & i haven’t been able to stop :thinking: abt the possibilities of amnesiac or withered ocelots
Idk why this hit me so hard but seeing Maya and Hawkeye dealing with their lack of hearing this episode was just... so impactful? The way they muffled and cut out the sound, the use of sign language, Kate helping Clint with the phone call... it was so beautiful and heartbreaking. I am so happy about this show and this is like 85% why.
goodnight gaymers <3
