Because I am nothing if not an Enabler: Nuxable.

001 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

  • when I started shipping it if I did: the moment that Capable touched Nux’s lips. like that moment when she lies down and reaches out to him like… just fuck me up.
  • my thoughts: 
  • What makes me happy about them: i love how soft and tender and subtle their relationship is. I love that it’s never sexual, that it’s not intense and in your face. I love that it’s a kiss on the cheek and never leaving his side; that it’s sleeping curled up next to him and trusting him despite what he should symbolize to Capable. I love that it’s her opening his heart and showing him a different way of seeing the world and of living; that it’s her turning to him when they’re deciding to go back to Citadel instead of crossing the salt, that it’s him keeping her scarf and wrapping it around his wrist. I love that it’s her helping him grow and him helping her heal, and it’s not the one thing out there that doesn’t have to hurt. i love that she just understands him and he understands her, and they don’t need words for that. I love that it’s her giving him a new destiny, and it’s one he accepts completely, just as she accepts him completely. 
  • What makes me sad about them: that last scene of theirs. When Capable is the last one out of the rig and she looks at Nux and he tells her he’ll follow… Like she knows he’s not gonna follow. She knows he’s gonna die. You can see it in her eyes. And she doesn’t want to leave him and he doesn’t want to leave her, but they have to. And the way he fucking says “witness me” to her and the way she reaches out and pulls her hand close to her like what the Vuvalini did when Furiosa said her mom was dead… Like Capable was calling his soul to her and then he fucking dies and it’s horrible and he did it for her, he saved her and the others. he sacrificed himself. she was his fucking manifest destiny, his manifest destiny was to die to save them and it fucks me up so much.
  • things done in fanfic that annoys me: Sex? I mean, that’s pretty much a given tho. But like i haven’t actually read very many fics. I went through the tag on Ao3 but there were only 19 fics and I only read like a couple. 
  • things I look for in fanfic: Ace!Nux and Ace!Capable. Not treating the fact that they’re both survivors of different kinds of abuse as meaning their “broken”. Fics that are happy and cute.
  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: No.
  • My happily ever after for them: Nux doesn’t die, they get to return to the Citadel together and help rebuild the world. 
  • who is the big spoon/little spoon: Big spoon is Nux, lil spoon is Capable
  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity: i think it’d be star gazing cause it reminds them of when they first met, sleeping cuddled together in the rig with the stars above them. also i bet capable would learn all about cars and shit, so she could work on stuff with Nux cause he’s her precious revvhead.
