This is short, and dialogue only, and more alter-Mooks,
and a stand- alone during AKB. I'm cleaning out folders, and sending
out things that seem relevant where they should go. This is barely
even a fic, and if anyone's inspired to do more with it, please do.
"Remy, I know that--"
"If this is 'bout how you'll take care o'Bobby, Scott, jus' save
it. I know. Th'hospital visit today wasn' as bad as everyone makes
it out t'be, but I know you'll take care of Bobby if anythin' happens."
"I heard you had to go alone. I'm sorry -- I would have offered to
drive if I'd heard. But it's not just ... can I speak without having
you assume things, here?"
"Dunno, can you?"
"...Let me start again. I know that today wasn't ... it wasn't easy.
God knows that."
"God, the devil, an'all the team, Scott."
"And I think, though he's grown and changed a lot in the last few
years, that I know Bobby quite well."
"An' he thinks the world of y', Scott, always has. What's the point?"
"I would like to ask ... well, there are certain legal things that
Hank and I have been discussing that we really don't want to bring
up with Bobby, but..."
"Y'mean who pays f'the funeral? Don' worry. I got 'nough life insurance."
"REMY! That is not what we meant."
"...What is it, then?"
"Well, God forbid anything happens to you, but if so, what ... what
are Bobby's rights as a lover not recognised by the government? Who
decides where you're buried? Who takes care of the financial end of
your affairs? Who--"
"I think I know where you're goin' wit' this, Scott."
"No ... no you don't. I don't think for a second that you haven't
planned for every eventuality. Much as you don't believe it, I don't
discredit you enough to think that you don't have a plan for everything."
"Well, thank you, I think."
"I'd just ... Hank and I would just ... like to be privy to some
of it, in case."
"Don't jump ... please. Either Hank or I -- and I honestly don't
care who -- would like to know some of these details just in case
... in case, if something does happen, there are ramafications that
extend past the legal statutes you've planned for. God knows what
the laws regarding marriage are going to be like in a year, for example."
"And? My lawyer could handle all of that."
"...Much as you might not believe it, the two of you are not alone
in this. There are other people on this team who care about you ...
and Bobby. Look Remy, you know that we'd never turn you or
Bobby out, or shut you out or ... We'd just like to be able to take
care of it, so that Bobby won't have to. Please don't think either
of us are trying to be presumtuous -- we'd just like to know what
to do, in case, so Bobby won't have to."
"...I guess that makes sense. But not Henri. He's got too much on
his plate a'ready jus' dealing wit' all the ... medical stuff."
"...You'd prefer me?"
"Does that surprise y'?"
"Quite frankly, yes."
"Scott, if nothing else, y're honest beyond compare. An' I don' want
anyone handlin' my accounts that could morally be okay wit' skimming
a million or two offa the top an' no one'd be the wiser."
"...A million or two?"
"Sure. I didn't jus' put ideas in y'head, did I?"
"No, no of course not. It's just surprising."
"'Course it is. Anythin' else y'want?"
"No. But if I may ask something...?"
"Why not. Doesn' mean I'm gonna answer."
"Do you intend to ... solidify things, with Bobby, before anything
... I mean, I know the two of you were planning to go to Hawaii, and
though it's none of my business, of course .... did you plan to ask
"I think I get what y'asking, Scott, an' I hadn't. How can I ask
him t'do ... that, if I don' know if I'm gonna live long enough t'have
"...I asked Jean."
"Life is life, Remy. That's all it is. I'll tell Hank that I'll take
care of it. You know where I am if ... if."
"Thanks, Scott. It's surprisin', but thanks."
"He's my friend, too. You're both my friends."
"....Thanks. An' could y'get me th'Yellow Pages, before y'disappear
"Of course. But why?"
"Well, how'm I gonna buy a diamond ring if I can' get a hold of a
