A Voice So Familiar

Work Text:

Stevonnie and Lapis were cartoon nerds. It was one of the ways they started bonding, which also served to help Lapis become more comfortable around fusions.

They would lay at the foot of Steven's bed and binge for hours on classics and modern shows alike. If it was animated, they would watch. She would cuddle Stevonnie with her head on their shoulder, and they would absentmindedly stroke her hair. Lapis usually (but not always) declined to eat, while Stevonnie would usually make popcorn.

The pair had just finished plowing through the first six seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic; they were considering re-watching the first season of Pinky and the Brain when something new popped up on the Netflix: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

They stopped after 4 episodes to discuss.

"I really like Bow," Stevonnie gushed. "He reminds me of Steven." They rubbed the back of their neck, grinning sheepishly. "Uh... is that narcissistic?"

Lapis snorted and giggled.

"Who's your favorite?" they asked. "I bet it's Glimmer!"

"Pft. She's an overachiever. And a bit of a brat."

Stevonnie snickered and retorted, "I'll bet it's someone from the Horde. Like Shadow Weaver or something."

Lapis opted to flick their ear.

"Ow! Okay, okay!" They snickered again. "Who?"

Sighing dramatically, Lapis said, "Well, I suppose you're right; she's with the Horde. There's just something about Catra that I really like."

She ran a finger over Stevonnie's lips, and they responded with a gentle kiss on her fingertip.

She added, her voice husky, "I really love her voice."
