HOW TO TELL PEOPLE OFF
BY MAKO MORI AND STACKER PENTECOST
The Raleigh Becket experience
Anonymous said: ahh prompt!!: mako going through stacker's things and finding his music collection (tapes? cds? whatever's most practical) she can be alone, or not!
NONNIE WHY MUST YOU HURT ME THIS WAY.
There’s a nudge of sympathy at the back of Mako’s mind before Raleigh retreats as far as the ghost drift lets him. Three days after Pitfall, it’s to the edges of her mind.
Mako takes a deep breath, and opens the door to sensei's quarters.
Raleigh looking at Mako
sometimes i think about mako’s reaction this this whole situation (the bilingual stubbly supportive golden retriever situation) and i laugh and laugh and laugh because if anyone has mused on the many consequences on drift partnership it’s mako mori being as it pretty much informs her ENTIRE LIFE even if she didn’t want to be a pilot ‘more than anything’ it’s still the underlying relationship of every important person in her life the good (tams and stacks) the bad (hansens v1.0) and the ugly (hansens v2.0) all her friends are either part of a drift pairing or study drift pairing or work to facilitate drift pairings’ safe to say she’s read up on the subject and she KNOWS to pilot Danger she has to pair up and she KNOWS if this unseen becket person is being brought in that he’s going to be her drift partner and just considering all the possibile styles of human that she’s prepared to accept in order to pilot and this guy turns up? it’s like the universe said ok mako we know we’ve given you a bad deal: the world kind of ended before you really got a chance to enjoy it and then we took your parents and then we gave your new dad a terminal illness so yeah fair enough you’re heavy in the minus column but here WE GOT YOU A PRESENT HE’S BRAVE AND TRUE AND LOVES YOU LIKE THE SUN MOON AND STARS TOGETHER AND HE’S TALL AND WELL-SHAPED AND HE’S A LITTLE BIT BROKEN BUT STILL GOOD YEAH STILL GOOD (and oh. no. now i’ve created an AU where mako is stitch claiming her little broken stacker and raleigh family don’t look at me) (oh noooooooooo) (tags from harrietvane)
