3 Works in Midnighter and Apollo (Comics)
31 Dec 2016
It starts with a gradual awareness as Midnighter begins to wake. There seems to be more light in the room than he had remembered. Moreover, the body he had been sharing the bed with appears to have moved. His conscious mind begins to get properly into gear just as he hears the words, “We need to talk”.
This jolts him into consciousness. Cracking his neck, he turns to lean sleepily on his side and looks up at Apollo – who is sitting up against the headboard, watching him. He looks beautiful. Of course, Apollo always looked beautiful, but catching him at the very start of the day – when the sun had started to stream in around the sides and bottom of the blind – now that was something else.
However… when is “we need to talk” ever a good thing to hear? To buy himself time, Midnighter attempts to get away with a quick “Hmm?” He opens his eyes a bit more, trying to shake the last of the sleep out of his brain. Hadn’t things been going well since he and Apollo got back together? Then again, his partner isn’t looking upset, merely thoughtful. So Midnighter follows up with, “We do?”

It's easy to say there's no one you'd rather see at the end of the world. It's harder to talk about the little things.
