Hello all! It’s been a while since we’ve had the team in the Hot Seat, so today we have Sloane, Ash, and Seb here to answer some of your questions! Remember if you’d like to leave a question for the cast, you can do so here. Let’s turn up the heat!
Charlie: Hi, fellas! Our first question is from Mary_HaveHeart, and it’s for all three. When you are in your felid form which is the first thought that occurs to you when you see your partner?
Ash: Aw. You’re so disgustingly adorable.
Sloane: Shut up. It’s an instinct. Even before we were in a relationship, my instinct was to protect him. He’s my partner. Of course now that need to protect is even fiercer. The moment I shift, I need to see him, to leave my scent on him. It's hard to describe the feeling I feel when I see him for the first time through my Felid eyes. Despite any looming danger, I feel happy because he's there.
Ash: Do you mind? I'd rather keep my lunch in my stomach for a while longer. Why do I always get stuck doing these things with the saps?
Sloane: Please, like you wouldn't be the same if it was Cael.
Ash: You'll never know, will you? Because the question said partner not boyfriend, so bite me.
Seb: Well, Dom is my partner on Theta Destructive, so usually my first thought when I see him is, "if you tranq me I will claw your ass into linguine". It was like my second week as Team Leader for Theta Destructive, and Dom tranqed me. He says he thought I was one of the perps, but we all know that’s bullshit. I think he was just trying to show me that he was ready to take me down if I pulled anything like what Stone did. Dom kept that team from falling apart after Stone's betrayal. We’re close now, but at the time, after I woke up, I was seriously ready to punch him in the face, but doing that wouldn't have helped. I needed to earn his trust. I knew once I did, eventually the others would too.
Ash: My first thought is, "Let's do this". There is a fierce sense to protect your partner when you’re in your Therian form, so it's the same for me. Letty's been my partner for years. She's damn good at what she does, and fucking ace, If someone thinks they're going to fuck with her on my watch, they better be prepared for me to kick their ass.
Charlie: This question is for Sloane from Veny. Any plans for a mini Dex or mini Sloane? Wonder what Tony would think of being called "gramps"?
Ash: I’m officially horrified by that question. I might even be a little sick. Yep, that’s definitely gross.
Seb: What’s the matter, Ash? You’d make a great uncle. Uncle Ash.
Ash: Screw you, man. No one asked for your opinion. Just the thought of a bunch of little ankle-biters like Dex—Nope. Don’t do it, Sloane. I swear on my fuzzy sacs if you bring another Daley into this world I will kick your ass.
Sloane: Um, can we not get into this? Dex and I only just moved in together. Let’s see how that goes before we start talking about, uh, that.
Seb: Personally, I can’t wait to see you two all lovey-dovey couple-like because it’s going to drive Ash batshit crazy.
Ash: Again, why are you talking? Also, I think if anyone called Maddock gramps, he’d be showing them some manners Maddock style.
Sloane: I think he’d be okay with grandpa or something similar. Not gramps, though.
Seb: Yeah, I think anyone who calls Maddock gramps is looking for a butt-kicking.
Charlie: Okay, Seb, this question is from Naoki. What good or bad habits have you unconsciously picked up from your partner?
Seb: I’m not sure if the question refers to work partner or not. From Dom, I’ve picked up plenty of both in the short time he’s been my partner. As far as good habits, Dom’s one of those guys who never backs down when he believes in something. He’s tenacious and persistent. It’s hard to be down about something around him. For bad habit, I’m actually going to go with something I picked up from Hudson, and that’s buying more tea and coffee than I can ever consume in one lifetime. He has this hoarding tendency when it comes to tea and coffee. Like he’s storing for the apocalypse or something. I find myself doing the same thing. I don’t even drink tea.
Ash: That’s it? Tea? Amateur. Sloane’s picked up a shitload of bad habits from his dorky boyfriend.
Sloane: Fuck off. No I haven’t.
Ash: Yes, you have.
Sloane: Like what?
Ash: You smile all the fucking time!
Sloane: How is that a bad habit?
Ash: It’s not natural! You got it from that dweebus.
Sloane: Only you would see smiling as a bad thing.
Seb: You smile at Cael.
Ash: Yeah, and don't think I forgot about you smiling at Cael too.
Seb: That was before.
Ash: Don't give a rat's ass.
Sloane: We should move onto the next question before Ash pops a blood vessel.
Charlie: Good idea! Ash, this question is for you. Andrea asks: Howdy, since you enjoy cooking, have you tried or do you enjoy gardening? What's your fave veggie to grow? Spill them beans! And thank you. :D
Ash: Do I look like fucking Alan Titchmarsh to you?
Seb: Who’s Alan Titchmarsh?
Ash: An English Gardner. Jesus, Seb.
Seb: What? Why the hell would I know who that is?
Ash: You of all people should know who that is! You dated a Brit for fuck’s sake.
Seb: So that automatically makes me an expert in all things British?
Sloane: What I would like to know is how Ash knows who Alan Titchmarsh is.
Ash: You can both kiss my ass. I watch TV you plebs.
Sloane: Um, I’m pretty sure that’s not something you find on prime time TV.
Seb: Yeah. Would they even play that here, or maybe Netflix? Either way, the lady doth protest too much, methinks.
Ash: Seriously, bro?
Charlie: Okay, I see a certain lion Therian woke up on the extra-extra grumpy side of the bed this morning so we're going to call it a day. Thank you all so much for joining us here today. Until next week!
