An AU where Chuck lives except he has severe radiation poisoning like Stacker and he doesn’t tell anybody about it, not Mako or Raleigh or even Herc for that matter, because he doesn’t want to take away their chance of happiness by having them fret over him.
So he tells the nurses and doctors to stay hush about it and to deliver the medication secretly. And for a few months he’s happy because he finally has his life under control and the nosebleeds and headaches don’t happen as often as they used to.
Then one day when he’s kissing Raleigh and steadily fucking him into the mattress, his nose starts to bleed heavily dripping on Raleigh so he’s forced to tell his boyfriend what’s going on and the minute he finishes the explanation, he’s holding an abnormally quiet and naked Raleigh.
And after a few moments of absolute silence, Raleigh lifts his head up and whispers something that makes his heart constrict. "I just got you back, I can’t lose you again."

A little chaleigh xmas gif based on this scene from House. I remembered it and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
You know, when I screw up in front of guys, generally they make you wish you’d never been born for mocking. The reaction of looking at you like you just magically produced a basket of puppies isn’t a typical one. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER, MAKO.
Raleigh is such a sweetheart. He gets how intense their experience just was and he’s so happy to have her around that he just smiles and gently teases her as opposed to being weird or gross.
He respects her while being all head over heels and adorable.
You can literally see him naming their children.
I wanted the Australians to be fearless and brave. Rob has a ruggedness that I believe that he has the appearance of a brawler, y’know? Like a guy that can play arrogance from a place of insecurity. - Guillermo del Toro
tbh this was why i was so enamored with the ‘drift compatibility’ concept in pacific rim like wow look this is a fucking movie that OUTWARDLY DISPLAYS THE CONCEPT THAT FRIEND LOVE ROMANTIC LOVE AND FAMILY LOVE ARE ALL EQUALLY STRONG AND ALL EQUALLY AFFECT YOUR LIFE AND NO ONE TYPE IS GREATER OR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OTHER
