Also, while it's nice to think that things would be smooth sailing for them from now on, there would have to be a hefty transition period for them both. I mean, they've been "together" but not actually co-habitating for like a decade and a half. Each has their own habits, ways they like things done, all that sort of thing that new couples have to work out. Plus I'd think it would bring up the whole question of Wynston's uh...personal methods of manipulation again (maybe I'm wrong, but I can't help but think that him coming home directly from an op like that would feel different than there-was-a-girl-last-week).

Nom nom speculation

Edit: Also, Cole's relationship with Wynston so far has been a friendly, supportive, but largely absent male figure. If they're actually together, wouldn't it change?

Nom nom more speculation lol.
Ack, ninja comment!

There's tons of stuff to speculate, I'm just not sure of the narrative merit of writing up "The Exciting Adventures of What Do You Mean You Squeeze the Toothpaste All Willy-Nilly Instead Of Squeezing From The Bottom?" Still, fun to think how they might settle in.

The sleeping-with-people thing is definitely gonna have to change. Keeping it out of your partner's face gets less practical when your partner's face moves in with you. Wynston alluded to it in the vaguest possible terms when he said that he had some leeway in picking assignments and the implementation thereof, along with some willingness to adapt the scope. Easily said; might take some getting used to in practice.
