I did like the cute, almost little kid pride at getting a kiss on the cheek. A-DOR-A-BLE!

Do you remember when she (under a cut because it refers to the spoiler)
Spoiler
kissed Books (and I think Akstyr?) on the cheek for doing something, and he was just standing there glaring?  I always thought he was jealous of those kisses then, and maybe that added a little bit to his smugness there.
  ;D

Yes, and the whole:

Spoiler
"I can forage" protesting when she praised Bas in DC for cooking them a nice meal.
"Should we take their clothes?"
"To what end?"
"....Pockets?"

From the end, don't read if you aren't done! 
Spoiler
Okay, so the secret of Sespian's parentage is out for the gang - that was the Big Uber Secret, right?  How long is it going to take for Books, Yara, or Basilard (or even Sespian) to make a comment about Amaranthe and Sicarius?  They're all speculating about it! 

Also -
Spoiler
When Mal hugged Amaranthe.   dawwwwwww!

Yeah, and then
Spoiler
he gives her fish eyeballs.
o_O 
Spoiler
But he's trying so hard.  I kept hoping he'd give her a chocolate pickle that he sneaked out or something though.  He has to know that she'd be all over him if he did.

Also?  Spelunking.  Seriously.

Close to the middle/end:

Spoiler
I loved how Akstyr softened up. Am's been a good thing for all of them.

That really was sweet.  I love the way Mal reacted to that too.  :) 

Does anybody have ANY doubts about
Spoiler
who that letter is going to?  Come on, it's GOT to be Rias, right?  There's no possible way it's anyone else, right?  But has Sicarius ever even sent a letter before?  He's so concerned about getting caught at stuff, would he sign it?  Would Rias or Tikaya recognize his precise handwriting without a signature after 18 years?  (Yes, I'm sure they would actually.)

That was my guess, too.

Oh, and surely there are like...12 drawable moments in there, right?  I'm dying to see:

Spoiler
Sicarius carrying Am through the swamp, with her all cuddled against his chest.

Yes, I'd faint. Sweartoad, I'M BEGGING YOU.

This, plus the aforementioned 
Spoiler
romantic stranger outfit. 

Plus
Spoiler
her standing there naked with her stolen knife and gun, almost hysterical, when she realizes it's him and not Pike
and Pike looking up in horror as a pole-vaulting Sicarius leaps on top of him
Oh, and of course Maldynado after he tosses that little old lady overboard and he's all studly with his shirt fluttering off of him

You know what?  I think B&B deserves its own fanart requests thread already.

FUCK YES PEOPLE.

There is such a wealth of sexyhawt in that sentence my brain almost short circuited. Really, Aamartin's dom story steered me into unmentionable territory when I got to that part. I almost expected that to be 'mistress' lolol!
Once you've made sure that the signal gets through
There's one final thing that I want you to do
Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

Kchighley, you are reading all this stuff with a maniacal grin on your face and with a fluffy white cat in your lap, am I right?
