greek gen (cappie & rusty broship)

it has been MONTHS since i have posted in here. honestly i wrote this a long time ago but i still really like it so i'm posting it. i'm thinking about starting up writing again, since i've fallen back on it due to lack of creativity and struggling with a book that is probably never going to happen. anyway, here is cappie musing on rusty and casey and stuff.



The Cartwrights, Cappie has decided, have fucked him up soundly. Even if he has resoundingly different feelings for each of them (totally, completely different -- he just wants to make that really clear) they make him do things he wasn’t even aware he could do. Like be irrationally jealous of some science-y jerk who shouldn’t even be allowed to speak in public until he decides what words he’s going to use. Or like punching Evan Chambers so hard he’s pretty sure his hand is broken.

(Ha, he’s just thought of that. He’s punched Evan over both of them. That’s...that’s gotta be weird, right? It’s weird thinking it, because, as he would like to reiterate, he feels totally opposite feelings for them.)

He shakes it out now and watches Rusty warily where he’s splayed out on the pool table, tissues up his nose and eyes shut firmly. Cappie is pretty impressed that he’s not crying, because getting hit in the face with a pledge paddle has to hurt like a bitch. Rusty just lays there, barely moving except to grimance every now and then. Cappie sits down next to him.

“Hey, Spitter.”

He wonders if he would have run upstairs the way he had when he’d heard Rusty screaming if it had been any other pledge. Sure, he would have defended a Kappa Tau pledge no matter what, especially against Omega Chi, but it’s somehow different with Rusty. Rusty is the kid who spit tequila all over a hot chick at his first college party. Rusty is the kid who can’t keep his mouth shut even when it’s better for everyone if he did. Rusty is the kid who made it rain beer, prospect of their blood evaporating notwithstanding.

Cappie isn’t sure if it’s because of Casey or not. He has -- his feelings for Casey are always complicated and never certain, even in his own head. The only thing he knows for sure is that he has them, all the time. Casey is probably always going to haunt him in that way that meant-to-be is supposed to.

But somehow, he thinks it’s because of Rusty. Rusty is unlike anyone he’s ever encountered. Rusty defies the social hierarchy and he does it without even realizing it, which makes it sort of stupid and weird. Cappie has dealt with pledges before, dealt with the idea of being an older brother to kids who don’t know what they’re doing, who need someone to tell them how things are supposed to work even though he’s only a few years older than them and is so not qualified to advise even himself, much less other human beings. But Rusty comes to him and Cappie wants to give him the best advice, advice that will help him. He disguises it as all-knowing and wise Big Brother visage, but really he just wants Rusty to be happy. Because Rusty is his Little Brother, and Cappie likes him a lot. It’s weird, to be invested in someone else’s problems and want to be.

Cappie called him Spitter in the basement because Rusty was never, ever not going to be a Kappa Tau. He’s not sure how Rusty ever thought he wasn’t going to be.

He compliments his bravery and berates his stupidity, and Rusty sits up and quirks a half-smile at him like he’s still bewildered this is his life. Mortal enemies with Evan Chambers, and a pledge for a fraternity, and a polymer science major. Cappie’s Brother.

It’s probably going to be an interesting next few years, Cappie decides.

I HAVE MISSED YOUR WORDS SO MUCH

I MEAN

The only thing he knows for sure is that he has them, all the time. Casey is probably always going to haunt him in that way that meant-to-be is supposed to.

AND

is so not qualified to advise even himself, much less other human beings.

AND ALL OF IT - JUST. ALL OF IT. *_______________*
