have a secret. A secret ship. For Tommy.
With a lady.
I just really like the idea that the Runaways and the Young Avengers kept up correspondence. Like, you can’t get kidnapped and tortured and fight aliens together, and then never send a couple of emails, right? So I like to think that Cassie, or hell, maybe even Teddy, was the one who talked Karolina through her misery after Xavin left the planet, and eventually encouraged her to start dating again. And of course Victor and Jonas kept in touch, they’re family. They’re (sort of) on the same team now.
So, Tommy probably swings by every few weeks to take Molly and Klara out for ice cream and blow stuff up for them. After the first few unexpected “kidnappings”, Nico made it super clear that he has to call or text or email at least two hours in advance, so that she’s not worrying her head off when she can’t find them. Then she starts going with them. Then they start going dancing or seeing movies after making sure the girls are safe with Chase and Karolina.
I don’t know, I’ve actually shipped this for a while, to the point where Tommy/Nico is a thing in the couple of House of M AU fics I’ve written. In any case, my ideal scenario for YA #15 would be like, another spontaneous kiss from David and Tommy being like, whoa there friend.
"Look, I’m kinda…I’ve got a thing going, with this girl."
"But she’s pretty open-minded for a Catholic chick, and I don’t mind sharing if she doesn’t."
Basically, I think my two big Tommy ships would look super attractive as a trio so.
