So!

So! Spooky is suffering some kind of post-magic chills. And to fix it, he has just asked Flyboy to hold his hand! In bed! And now he wishes he hadn’t!

Will Flyboy be willing to forget what Spooky just asked? Will he now think Spooky is a total weirdo? Will things be totally awkward from now on? How much sleep is Spooky really going to get on that couch, with only a single blanket to keep him warm? And how will that affect his fight against Shades McEvil tomorrow morning?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! :grinning:

Oh wow I thought they were going to cuddle.

But just a little hand-holding? As a treat?

Oh Spooky… this is not the time to be self-sacrificing. :hugs:

Lucky for you, I bet Mitch’s heroic nature will shine through, and there will be mucho skin contact. :sleeping_bed:

I actually had a theory, back in the day, that Spooky’s chills are due to him missing (part of) his soul. I’m nt sure if the new information invalidates that.

Well, Spooks does imply that is all that is needed. Mitch may be weirded out. He hasn’t been exposed to this issue in his own time, has he?

Is hand-holding as good as cuddling, Tink?

Mitch is very heroic.

It’s a good theory. I’ll be interested to hear what you think about it once we get to the end of this scene.

Not directly. But reviewing what I wrote that we haven’t published yet, there might be a clue coming up…

And what would the NUCLEAR CUTE be on this page, Julia?
