Aakjdf It’s always nice to meet someone who agrees on that. Healthy relationships = awesome in real life, but not a requirement to love a pairing in fiction.
(If you make that post I will be there with bells on)
I can just imagine Matt in the break room a week or so after end-game, still gushing excitedly to Asha for the five-hundredth time as she tries to play pool - animatedly describing how he was there, trapped by the console, facing certain doom. The alien menace baring down on him as he fought against time and scrambled electronics to get the doors open. And just when he thought all hope was lost… in swooped the Boss, resplendent in their fury, guns blazing, to crush the skulls and rend the life from any who’d dare hurt him! ‘Oh it was just like episode 14, season 3, when Nyte Blayde-’
‘I KNOW. I know Matt. I was there, and you’ve been talking about it non-stop since it happened.’
That’s a really good point about the Boss’s extrovert balance too. I love to think of the two of them just vegging out in pj’s sometimes, Matt in a Nyte Blayde t-shirt and printed pants, cuddled up for a series marathon. The Boss smiling and chuckling indulgently as Matt gets all excited and squirmy over his favourite episodes. Then there’s a tense scene between the hero and his love interest, all unresolved sexual tension and long broody looks, and Matt goes suspiciously still and quiet.
Dangnabbit, I really want to draw that now. xD
Mmumm~ fiction is there to entertain us after all. Not mimic life exactly. This why fictional characters never need to use the restroom unless it’s plot relevant.
Ohh and don’t forget how it was the final battle to save the remains of humanity! Even Nyte Blayde never had the stakes that high. Really, He should find a way to work this into the new series he’s writing. Maybe the boss will reconsider letting him use them as a character.
You could practically hear the wheels in Matt’s head turning as he compares his life to his favorite fiction. Eheh~ he’d probably get all squishy and romantic for days ‘till even the boss got tired of him swooning.
“Look Matt, as much as I enjoy being treated like a hero or whatever. You don’t have to keep telling everyone how amazing I am. Your pissing everyone off.”
It might even get bad enough that Matt starts getting anxious when the boss isn’t around and takes to spying on them just to make sure they’re okay. I can imagine it going over just wonderfully when the boss finds out.
Ohhh also that sound cute, but you should really save your hand. it needs time to heal. there will always be more cute ideas to draw and it’s not worth risking hurting yourself worse.
