    Summary

    And then, despite the freezing cold and biting winds that numbed his fingers and stung at his eyes, he felt a tentative smile begin to spread across his face. “Baba,” he said again, childlike joy fluttered in his chest when Baba lumbered forward and nosed Tommy’s hand.

     

    AKA: I saw the few seconds of Tommy sounding happy about Baba's name and turned it into a 5k word one shot because I wanted to.

    Summary

    “You loved Ghostbur because he was a better version of me!” Wilbur yells. “You just wanted to replace me with him, didn’t you?”

    “I loved Ghostbur because he was you!”

    Wilbur staggers at that, and Tommy shoves him, because he thinks Wilbur might see him cry if he stands too close. It’s stupid, he thinks, because Wilbur is standing with his mouth agape while Tommy chokes on his own tears.

    He blearily reaches up to wipe at them. “Everyone keeps treating you like you’re different, but I know you’re not. And Friend knows you’re not.”

    “Tommy…”

    “How could I replace you? They were all the same to me, and I didn’t care which version of you I got.” He takes a shuddering breath. “I just wanted my brother back.”

    (or, Tommy thinks he loves Ghostbur and Wilbur the same.)

    Summary

    Tommy’s fins twitch at the mention of Dream’s ancestors. Dream talks about them a lot, how they made their fortune hunting down mer pods, how they were cruel and greedy. Nothing like Dream is. They’ve both overcome their roots he says.

    Tommy is nothing like the wild mer out in the ocean, who spend their lives scraping by just to survive, who kicked him out of the pod when he was a baby because he was too small. He’s also better than the pit mer, who can’t overcome their wild instincts and know nothing but fighting.

    He’s different from them, he’s better than them. He’s Dream’s.
    ////
    OR: Change is like the tide, when it comes, you can only sink or swim. You would think that a mer would be better at keeping afloat.

    Summary

    Virgil knew about witches. They never did anything out of the goodness of their hearts, and the only uses they had for run-of-the-mill humans were as ingredients, food, or slaves.

    Only one of those involved Virgil staying alive.

    Summary

    “I’m your new neighbor,” Wade forged on, oblivious to Peter’s state of shock, and he stuck out a scarred hand. Peter gripped it, feeling numb, and gave it a shake. Did Wade realize who he was? No, clearly not. He was acting way too normally. Wade was one for dramatics.
