Magic!Anon says that you are madly in love with Martin for a week.

Though I appreciate the sentiment, I do not think Martin and I are compatible. I prefer…taller men. But I’m sure his wife likes him plenty.

The Video Call

thegreekwolfhound:

Julian would love to go sightseeing with J. In his excitement, he dashes off without the computer and comes back with his papers and marker and his dictionary.

'Yes. We be tourists together! :)'

Julian can’t wait to see J now. It’s only a matter of time.

'I can wait.'

Wrong use of English there, but he means well.

J has a good hearty laugh at Julian’s sweet enthusiasm and writes the phrase he’d tried to say correctly, showing it to Julian. “I can’t wait.” 

Me either. I think you’re great. 

He looks away from camera, smiling shy. He likes Julian, and he’s sure that he’s not supposed to like him as much as he does. 

But uh… I have to eat dinner now. With my parents. Talk later? 

He thinks hard and says, in Greek, tomorrow speak. It helps that he has google translate open in another window, though he’d meant to say “Talk later.” 

Okay!

Julian waves and after squeaking out his goodbyes, he closes the tabs and shuts his laptop down. They will have to do another call some time soon. Maybe after Zal has given him a little bit more time to learn some English.

That went very well for such a big language barrier.

Julian is learning so much from J and he is actually squeaking he is so excited. Reuben seems a lot more relaxed now that Julian and J have been in a video call for so long, and he can understand everything J is saying, which is nice because he has not once heard J abuse the immense power he has.

Julian carried his laptop around with him as he pointed to mundane objects and repeated after J, offering the Greek translation in return. They go through the living room, the bathroom, and the kitchen. However once in the kitchen, Julian sets his computer on the counter and fetches himself a glass and a bottle of wine.

He explains what it is, but he stops after a minute. J can’t understand him when he talks that quickly.

Tasty.

Julian sips his wine and swirls it around a couple times.

I like. Κρασί. Wine.

Kruh-see. Wine. 

He knows he butchered the word, but he’s trying and Julian always seems so excited when he repeats a word in Greek. 

I like… um. Beer. 

Wine was too fine, and something his parents indulged every once in a while. They wouldn’t admit it, but the wine was the sole reason he and his sister were conceived. J hadn’t yet figured out that their imbibing meant a little more. 

You know uh… German drink. Beer?

Julian can recognize the word without looking it up.

Beer!

He doesn’t have any unfortunately, but when J comes over, they can take a trip to a liquor store and see what J will pick out. Hell, they could buy one of everything and be set until J finds a beer he likes. Or sake, or whatever floats his boat. It’s an exciting prospect, but Julian doesn’t intend to get drunk ever again. Just a little tipsy.

Zero beer. Sorry.

Julian frowns, but he also can’t convey that he would get some for him. At least not right now.

You like beer? I get some.

Julian is so well meaning, he can’t help but chuckle at him. 

Sure. 

He thinks for a moment and realizes he’d love to sightsee around Julian’s neighborhood and decides to say it in a way that is easily understood. 

I will be a tourist. You’ll show me around right? 

The prospect of spending all day with Julian, sightseeing makes J’s stomach do flip-flops, which makes him uncomfortable because he hasn’t yet come to terms with who he is. However, he ignores it because he is adept at ignoring things he doesn’t understand.

Julian frowns in confusion. What did he say? He scribbles on the paper again after looking up a couple words.

"Write please :)’

That makes sense. Totally. He shows it to Reuben first, who gives him a thumbs up and Julian squirms in place when he shoves the paper at the camera.

He can better compare the word if he can see it instead of hearing it. He hopes J won’t mind, because Julian thinks it’s very sweet that J is actually trying to say Greek words for him. (Even if his pronunciation is a little off.)

His pronunciation is way off, but Julian is sweet, so J tries despite his stumbling tongue. 

Upon seeing Julian’s sign, he leaves the computer for a minute and comes back with a notebook. In big, block, almost childish handwriting, he’s printed his name J U N I P E R. 

It’s my name… 

He looks sheepish. He’s got a girl name. His parents are silly. 

Julian copies the letters down in his own book and flips through his dictionary. And there it was. Juniper. άρκευθος. Perfect. He writes it in Greek for J and shows it to him, repeating the word over and over again.

And after Julian is sure that J gets it, he write another set of words down.

'pretty name!'

This is fun. Julian is having a great time. J has fish and his name is nice and he’s really sweet and patient because Julian is sure that if it had been anybody else, they would have given up. And J is showing him all these things and giving them English names, which Julian is excited to share with Zal when he gets the chance.

Fantastic!

J blushes a bit and rubs the back of his head. Well that’s what his parents had said when he demanded to know why they hadn’t named him something respectable, like John. 

Thank you. 

He smiles and turns the camera, showing Julian his room and starts to point to things and say them in english. Chair. Bed. Nightstand. Lamp. Desk. Closet. It’s an exercise for the both of them, because he waits for Julian to say the word he said, then repeat it in Greek, and then repeats after Julian. 

They do this for an absurd length of time. 

This is fun. 

It’s the most fun J’s had in too long a time. 

Julian is learning so much from J and he is actually squeaking he is so excited. Reuben seems a lot more relaxed now that Julian and J have been in a video call for so long, and he can understand everything J is saying, which is nice because he has not once heard J abuse the immense power he has.
