I was trying to imagine what a more mature and healthy version of A would be like. Still overprotective, but a little more open and treating the Detective as a peer rather than an incompetent nuisance. Also, because it would get my MC to cooperate instead of starting a fight, which would really cheese off Bravo!A
Lol, you probably won’t find that in Unit Alpha Though the commanding agent and second in command of Unit Alpha are just as close as A and N, but that’s because the Unit Alpha leader and second are actually brothers.
They are not like A and N in personality though, which is probably what irks A even more!
(Ergonomic keyboard arrived! It’s very, very weird and it’s definitely gonna take a while to get used to, haha! But hopefully it will pay off in the end for my wrists ).
welp, there go my dreams of unit alpha being the bizarro version of unit bravo.
c’est le vie…
Well we still have 23 other teams we haven’t met .
…not to mention all those other dimensions out there…
Sooooo… Which one is the one you wanna smooch?!
What if Unit Charlie is the bizarro Unit Bravo… But they all have 10% less restraint than UB.
I don’t think the Agency could afford that.
Rebecca: Unit Bravo has to go on a very important mission so I’m having Unit Charlie watch you… I asked Unit Alpha but when A found out… well, Unit Charlie will be with you for a few weeks.
MC: Oh okay. How bad could it be?
MC: opens door to office
office is a wreck
C!A: … your furniture is too fragile, Detective. Just like you I can see.
C!F: Oh and I found your phone! You and -insert RO here- seem really close~
MC: T-That’s… Wait, where is my phone then??
C!N: Oh I destroyed it! Technology is evil
MC: I… Why is the corner on fire?
C!F: Oh that’s just from C!M’s smoking.
C!M: … -censored-
A: … for some reason I feel suddenly vindicated.
M is gonna wreck Bobby and I cannot wait!!
Bobby: opens mouth
M: Ho, don’t you do it.
Bobby: calls the MC by a nickname
M: Oh my god.
On the one hand, I would like to see what happens, because M being jealous/protective is something I would adore.
Yet on the other, I would prefer such a scenario to not happen. Because I like Bobby…
Would like to have an option where the detective could interfere between the two and just shush the whole argument before it has even started.
Though I cannot deny that I would have at least one playthrough where I would let it escalate as well…Because M! …I mean science
I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in awhile. Thank you.
Well, here’s the thing. We know M isn’t really the jealous type since that’s just not how Sera rolls, so it’s most likely that M just dislikes the idea of the MC thinking about anyone else when they’re flirting with them.
So, I am proposing that instead of hurting Bobby
well, at least not physically, mayhaps emotionally M will instead, um, make sure the MC can only think of them when using a nickname.
My MC would probably break things up, just to keep an argument from breaking out, even though she hates it when Bobby does that. If Bobby pushed things far enough she’d eventually stop playing mediator, though. I imagine M could be pretty damn intimidating when they want to be. But yeah, no love lost there at all.
I’m certain all the detective would actually have to do would make clear in no uncertain terms that they are well over Bobby and M might not be so prickly. He might get prickly if Bobby doesn’t knock it off, though, especially if it made the detective super uncomfortable.
I imagine if it ever came to confrontation between M and Bobby, our lovely interrogation expert would go down the path of least resistance and simply try to brainwash/intimidate the journalist with pheromone jedi tricks. Or w/e that would work.
I love that idea, I truly do. BUT… how would M do that? I can only think of not so PG13 scenarios. How could M possibly diffuse or remind the detective of other/better ways/people who use nicknames for the detective in front of Bobby without using anything above PG13?
Besides whispering naughty things in the detective’s ear, naturally.
That is the thing, in my headcanon, my detective does not get uncomfortable with/regarding Bobby as she uses old nicknames. My detective still has kind of a soft spot for Bobby(though no romantic one), despite knowing better.
I highly doubt that
Rebecca the Agency would allow that. Though I would like to see if M has such abilities.
I mean… It’s M. That’s probably the right thinking
Think our equally lovely commanding agent might disapprove a bit though, that seems like something that your only supposed to use if you really have to.
