Don’t be such a grump, Doc.
Eight doesn’t like a taste of his own medicine…
#she looks like a perfectly nice girl I don’t understand why not
AHAHAHAHAHA. REALLY? THAT’S THE TAG YOU ARE GOING WITH?
Seriously, ‘a nice enough girl’? Destrii is a horrible, horrible person. Like, I don’t even know where to start. She is a very interesting companion because she’s so fucked up, and this isn’t random character hate, but I am sure that even the biggest Destrii stan of them all wouldn’t argue for her niceness.
(Let’s maybe mention that his “stop doing that” implies this isn’t the first time, which it isn’t. He’s referencing the time when Destrii, whilst in Izzy’s body (which she stole), threw him on the ground, held a knife to his throat and started making out with him while he struggled to get free, giving him some speech about how she’s just saved his life and he ought to ~show his gratitude~. GIRL IS SHADY AS FUCK.)
So, no, it’s not really a taste of his own medicine. Comics!Eight doesn’t really do the kissy thing, for starters. Secondly, book!Eight kisses people out of exuberance, yes, but he doesn’t do it in the gross, aggressive way that Destrii kisses people.
Ahahaha, I’d forgotten that this is the book where Mike Yates inexplicably has three brothers. Yeah, nope. REJECTED FROM THE HEADCANON. Besides, it changes from book to book, so there’s leeway for me to pick and choose. I DO WHAT I WANT.
