==>Wait. Reaper Peppers…? Hrm, that didn’t sound good for anyone and you peered at the plants as you settled your bowl aside briefly as you inspected them. However IV’s question made your eyebrows raise and a big grin come to your face.
*You look from IV to Fuzzy when her small out burst is over, blinking in minor shock. In all reality, you’re a fairly simple guy. Nature is just nature to you, science does what it needs to do and gets shit done. But now you risk looking like a moron .
Holy shit that sounded so fucking smart…..it actually would be pretty cool if you could understand any of it….but you couldn’t compete with that……so you let her one up you on that. You’d take this to your grave. Instead you choose to poke at BigShot*
What’s it gonna do? HA! It’s gonna make you piss lasers and shit lava. I bet you can’t even handle it. Piss to the scale man.
*You down the rest of the gumbo in your bowl eagerly….and before either of them can stop you, you take a bite from the biggest pepper down to its root. With your mouth still stuffed with food, you continue chewing*
Ain’ evfen tha’ hot! Damn, Fuzzy this is sum kickath ‘gator…
==>And you thought your lusus was the hungry one.
*He doesn’t realize it, but there’s the smallest hint of a blush threatening to breach his ears and spread across his face…but it immediately stops at IVs comment.*
Like hell I would. I’d back with that overgrown lizard as a pair of swank ass boots! *he growls back at them instinctively, IV better not eat it all! YOU were the one who helped get all the vegetables after all! The gumbo was OWED to you. Of course, you didn’t mind having an excuse to see Fuzzy again either…*
Peppers? Heh, I got some wicked ones from town! *he sets down his bowl (which is a feat within itself) to run outside. In a few minutes he returns with three oddly shaped peppers.*
Some asshat near the docks was handing em out for free. Called em the “Reaper Pepper” cuz it sends your ass right to hell! HA! I’ve been wantin’ to try em out ever since I planted the seeds…
Oh, sure, ya would. With the gator still attached. Wouldn’ be gettin’ yer feet back, though.
> Okay, you’ll admit it, antagonizing Conner is kind of fun, but only because he makes it so easy. You tilt your head at the mention of peppers, though. What, those weird bright colored plants that you can eat but don’t really taste like much of anything? What do those have to do with good food?
Connor and IV having a meal together kinda reminds me of that one episode of Teen Titans when Starfire goes back to her home planet.
"HURRY OR YOU WILL NOT GET ANY!"
*Almost immediately, there is the sound of him rushing to get downstairs from his room. His boots echo loudly on the stairs as he makes his way to the kitchen. Damn, it smells good in here…AND NOTHING IS ON FIRE.*
Holy fuck man, you’re still here….
*He doesn’t say it as an insult…. more like he’s really just surprised Mefiti is still here! Sure, IV can’t leave because their leg is fuckin broken…but Mefi didn’t have anything holding her back…It’s a pleasant surprise for him. His looks…relieved!*
And my damn hive is still in one fuckin’ peice. I see we didn’t let Big Shot near the stove. *He gives IV a surprisingly gentle small shove on their shoulder before taking a long inhale at the gumbo on the counter.*
Damn Fuzzy, this smells awesome.. *Immediately, he takes the bowl with the biggest amount of gumbo in it….and starts stuffing his face. He doesn’t even wait for the other two….He’s too damn hungry for manners. And even before they can finish their first bowls, Conner is already scoping out for a second helping.*
Holy HELL I’d bitten the fuck out of a damn gator sooner if I knew they’d taste that good. And no fuckin’ carrots, food doesn’t get any better than this. *He doesn’t seem to notice he’s passing out compliments as he’s already started eating through his second bowl….*
> The lusus nods graciously to Mefiti, tapping one paw to his mouth and drawing it down again. You doubt that Mefiti will recognize the sign for “thank you,” but his meaning is clear enough with how quick he is to eat, so you don’t translate it. He goes straight to eating after that, subtly signing to you a reassurance that it’s safe to do so, and you wait impatiently for your own bowl.
making HONEST ANTAGONISTS who believe they’re in the right and firmly believe in what they’re doing is SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING than making them “crazy” because of some outside influence. make villains who believe they are the protagonists
