"At the moment, I have no better suggestion than to be nonthreatening."

"Okay. Well -- go hug him or something? He's like a puppy, I swear, I can't bear to look at him that sad."

Permalink

Nod nod. He joins the Felix-Jean hug.

Permalink

Jean will share.

Permalink

Zari perches on an arm of the sofa so she can pet Jean's hair without touching the rest of the hugpile.

Permalink

There is enough Felix for the both of them. He calms down somewhat. Is Jean calming down?

Permalink

It's a little hard to tell, since in this case "upset" and "calm" both look a lot like "clinging to Felix," but yes.

Permalink

Well, Felix is hardly going to get tire of this anytime soon.

Permalink

Zari eventually detaches herself for long enough to go fetch tea and coffee and cookies and little sandwiches on a big tray, and then juggles coffee and food and petting Jean and staying on top of the situation on her computer.

Permalink

Ferdinand who-was-stuck-doing-nothing-for-years eventually asks for a book so he doesn't have to leave the hugpile.

Permalink

Yeah, she can do books. For anyone who would like them.

Permalink

Felix is content to snuggle up for quite sometime, but might request something if this takes hours.

(He is too nervous to sleep.)

Permalink

It takes a while but not hours before she asks Jean --

"Are you going to be able to dismiss him?"

Permalink

 

"Think so. If--" to Felix -- "you'll come back, later?"

Permalink

"You know I will."

Permalink

 

"...if it will be too hard for you -- if it scares you -- I don't want you to do things that hurt you..."

Permalink

"In that case I might just worry from afar and without knowing if you're actually okay."

Permalink

 

He looks at Ferdinand.

"Don't let him answer summonses unless it will hurt him more than not doing that."

Permalink

"Good."

He cuddles closer to Felix.

"...I think I can, yes. ... I love you."

Permalink

Snuggle. "Love you too."

Permalink

 

"--I can probably only do this if I let go of you first."

(And before that he has to kiss him.)

Permalink

And then he pries himself off and walks across the room and stares at the wall with his back to Felix for a full minute, until Felix is dismissed.

(Meanwhile, Zari dismisses Ferdinand.)

Permalink

And now they're in heaven. Felix and Ferdinand hug each other.
