Aster 5March, it was already march and this whole circus of unresolved emotions kept going on.Aster 5 by hanashize
Of course, after the small escapade to the forest, Jack and Aster had taken a damn big step in their wavering status of relationship, Jack had fallen asleep too deeply and Bunny had had to carry him back to the Burrow, and he as well took his sweet time doing so, humming along to the small noises Jack made everytime Bunny would step forward and lightly rock his body.
Jack had pulled a Sophie Bennet and refused to release Aster in his sleep, so the Pooka had to comply and drop the teen in his own nest along with him, not really fallen asleep himself, but just staring into space while Jack cuddled up to him, grunting in his dreams.
After Jack woke up and found himself there, he panicked until Bunny told him it was fine, and in a blurt was offered to sleep
there from now on...if he wanted, of course. He did.
Now they've fallen in some kind of a routine, Jack would spend most of the day outside and come
Aster 4Grooming had become kind of a daily need, especially since the other need of grooming the little ice punk had appeared; Bunny often found himself covered in the dirt Jack brought from outside, and that was a wonder in itself, being that the kid spend 90% of the time on air and the rest on snow or ice. Good side was that the bits of loose fur he would take off his pelt could be used on his nest, adding some softness to the crunchy bits of dry grass and flexible twigs, and now more than ever he need his bedding to be comfortable, now that the idea of having chosen a potential mate had sunk in, and damn it all to hell if he would be rejected for not having a comfy place to rest in.Aster 4 by hanashize
He sat on the edge of the nest for a while, remembering how he came to this point about the whole courting Jack affair…
The whole mental ordeal had been rather tortuous; first the denial stage, he absolutely refused to believe he had ever conceived the thought of courting Jack Frost, that was
Aster 3“There you are, mate” Bunny said as soon as Jack appeared from behind a tree. He was sitting in a small meadow near the burrow, a small army of eggs jumping around, trying to get their turn to get painted. “Was there a fire somewhere or somethin’? Only time I’ve seen someone fly so fast was when this Austrian kid lost his first molar and Tooth…you okay kid?” his tone changed to a kind-of-concerned-because-he-totally-wasn’t-worried-about-the-boy’s-long-face one, leaving the half-way painted egg in his hands on the floor with the others and getting up to hop over to the teen. His ears perked in surprise when Jack flinched a little at the closeness and took a small step back, his staff coming to cross over his chest in a distinctively protective manner.Aster 3 by hanashize
“O-of course I’m fine, Kangaroo, just…tired, there was this big holiday in Russia and I though a good snow day was in order, sure the workers weren’t so happy
Aster 2If one asked Jack how this all started, he would have to recall that day a couple of months ago, when he and Bunny had the little, strangely friendly talk on top of one of the highest points of America.Aster 2 by hanashize
Right after they have returned to the Warren, racing each other, Jack had left a moment to greet the small rabbits scattered all around a pond of cool water, and the moment he put a cold foot in the zone, every single fluffy head perked up, ears straight in point and whiskers twitching madly, and after a few seconds of staring at him...they just ran away. Confused as hell, Jack stood there, hand raised in a futile attempt to reach for the too-damn-fast animals, until he saw that one had stayed.
Dottie stood, as tall as he could be, over the cropped rock he was napping on, brow furrowed and nose twitching (and he looked so much like when Aster had become small himself, all angry and fuzzy, that he had to contain the need to coo over him), and when the winter child approached him, slowly,
