The whole clan is going to be so chagrined because here's this bossy war fledgling of Alyx Freaking Draya and they have to do what he says because they kinda didn't protect the princess like they claimed they could so now they have to rely on all these people they DON'T LIKE
Alyx is so used to dropping out of the sky thanks to first Astrid and now Georgiana that she pretty much just assumes it will be the cause of her death
Also Maksim is NOT onboard for also letting the princess go because he’ll get flogged for Alyx escaping, but Jorgenson will probably have him killed for letting Georgiana go so be prepared for some digging in of heels until Alyx makes him come with.
Oh NOES! Now I am both excited and nervous for our int
Despite everything that’s happened, Maksim is happy because he’s been in a fight with one of the few people who treats him like a person for nearly three years and now they don’t appear to be in a fight anymore so! It’s a good day!
Also he DID actually have a recipe he was following, he was making thai peanut noodles because they're DELICIOUS and easy to make lots of. Also peanut butter has protein! you need protein in your diet and meat is hard to keep fresh in the air!
Honestly no lmao. Most of the folks have realized he’s not as bad as he seems although whenever they get new officers they’re TERRIFIED of him because of the rumours and this terrifying man is staring down at them but then he points to the food in front of them and is like ‘you need to eat more, you’re too skinny!’ And comes up with a healthy eating regimen for everyone and they’re like ‘oh he just pretends to be awful’.
But nobody SAYS anything because clearly he’s sensitive about it! They will pretend to still be scared of him so he doesn’t feel bad.
They all just pretend to be afraid of him I cannot
Maksim will definitely pick up on those because he's not sure if he should apologize or not
ALSO Maksim does not actually care about Freddy or anything it's not like he's grown attached no he's just being polite and it's polite to check up on people after they talked to a sister who thinks they're dead okay it's perfectly normal he is detached from his fledglings leave him alone
LISTEN people are the worst and he doesn't need people because they're all terrible but oh no he didn't realize he'd crossed a line with Alyx back then because she generally ignored everything he would say and now it seems everyone has lines he keeps crossing?? And he didn't mean to dig up trauma so now he feels bad and he doesn't like this feeling okay
He doesn't actually care about anyone okay leave him alone
