A/N: I've had this first sentence lying around for ages, and finally figured out how to make it work.


Brendon likes to fill the quiet spaces with energy. He’s never been comfortable with silence, not even the lazy, comfortable silence of being with someone you know like the back of your hand, not needing to speak.

Spencer searches out the quiet spaces, yearns for them most when he’s in a new city every night, no time to learn to differentiate between them. Someday, he wants to come back to these places when he has time to explore, just be in cities whose names he couldn’t even find on a map.

Brendon doesn’t know how to just be. Spencer wants to teach him. Someday, he’s going to take Brendon back to all of these places, but not let him out of their room unless he can be still, for once. They’ll people-watch their way across America, and then across the sea, to France, Russia, Japan, Australia, England… well, maybe they’ll skip England for now.

“Brendon,” Spencer says very seriously one day, sitting across from him in the bus lounge area, “sometimes the quiet spaces don’t need to be filled.”

Brendon stills his fingers from tapping on his forearm, picking out a rhythm on his own silent piano keys, and looks at Spencer for a long moment, scrutinizing. Finally, he says, “Dude, I’m excited about life. I don’t know what your problem is.”

Spencer is taken aback. He kind of feels useless now. Brendon’s fingers resume their tap-tap-tapping, but Spencer, lost in thought, barely notices.

The thing that’s both strange and incredibly true is that he doesn’t actually want Brendon to change. His boundless energy is just part of what makes Brendon, well, Brendon, and Spencer realizes with a shock that it doesn’t annoy him the way it used to anymore. It doesn’t annoy him at all.

Someday, they’ll go to all the places in Spencer’s head, but they won’t sit quietly and watch all the people walking by. They’ll visit foreign cities, and Brendon will mug for the camera at all the tourist traps, and Spencer will watch Brendon.

I honestly don't know how you could not like this.

This last bit:

Still gives me chills.

Brilliant. One of my favorite Spencer/Mouse fics ever.

Oh man, I meant to thank you for looking it over at the top of this! I kind of suck.

I'm a little in love with that line, not going to lie. Thank you so so so much! I can't even tell you how flattered I am.

♥!

This is so sweet. Spencer wanting to take Brendon around the world and realizing that he likes his Brendon-ness. Love!

Thank you! Yeah, that was totally not supposed to be the point of this at all, but I wasn't objecting when it went there. I love when that happens. Glad you liked this!

It doesn't bother Spencer at all anymore! Man, that is totally how I feel about Brendon Urie these days. He udes to be annoying, and now... just damned adorable. (this, also, is damned adorable, in a sweet *happysigh* sort of way.)

Oh, yay! Yeah, I can so see Spencer feeling that way about Brendon. I'm glad he doesn't annoy you anymore, either. :)

And thank you! Glad you liked this.
