“I want to get married, though, I want children - to me that’s the ultimate thing. When you’re old and on your death bed, looking back at your life it’s not going to be the films you’ve made or what you’ve accomplished, it’s the relationships you have. You’re survived by things that matter - the people you love and those who love you back" - Chris Evans

willowingends asked: *whispers shyly* Will you please write me some Onua and Buri being platonic lovers? Or anything with those two?

mustangscullaaay:

of course of course! so fair warning this is heavy because my brain took ‘platonic’ to mean ‘moments of companionship’ and then that turned into like, real talk. so there’s like snuggles but content warning for discussion of assault and domestic violence (because that’s not talked about enough with onua) and brief mention of scars. also no one prompted me for lalasa and tian and i know you like them so i weaseled in a mention.

quiet constants.

Buri found Onua curled against a tree in the horse pasture, and seeing that was all she needed to understand that today had been difficult.

She approached Onua cautiously, knowing that when Onua’s thoughts were in dark places she didn’t much like to be surprised. Buri stood a few feet away, squinting through the afternoon sun, and called out to her. “Do you need space? Or do you need a friend?”

Lifting her head from between her knees, Onua sighed and rubbed her eyes. “A friend, please. The horses are growing bored of me.”

did you guys know that before the summit series, canada sent a couple of scouts out to see what this whole “soviet union hockey team” business was about, and the soviet goalie tretiak had spent the previous day getting HELLA TOASTED at his bachelor party so he was way hungover and it was essentially an exhibition match anyway so he was like, “fuck it, i’m gonna drink as much water as i can and basically do my best not to pass out,” so they lost 8-1 and the canadian scouts were like HAHA WOW SOVIET HOCKEY S U C K S

and then two months later the soviets beat them 7-3 in the series’ first game and literally all of canada was like
