Because every story has more than one side to it, and it’s actually perfectly reasonable for someone to remember something slightly differently than how it actually happened depending on what they think of that person/event now looking back…
Walter’s heart was pounding rapidly in his chest. He tried to control his breathing, to suppress his urge to run. It was probably the most difficult thing he had ever done in his life. Every muscle fiber in his body screamed for it.
The red haired man looked to his side to see if his companion was still there. Across the path that cut through the trees, obscured by low tree branches and brush, sat Wilson. He looked just as panicked as Walter. Maybe even more so. Even though it was dark and Wilson was just barely in sight, Walter could hear the other man’s breathing. Shaky and uneven.
"W-Wilson…" Walter hissed but the dark haired man shot him a deadly glare, cutting his hand across his throat repeatedly to tell Walter to stay quiet. They both seemed to collapse on themselves when the screech tore through the trees. The creature was so close.
Walter covered his eyes and tried to make himself small by curling up under the tree he was hiding behind.
"Don’t look. Don’t look…" He repeated to himself quietly. That’s what the note said, wasn’t it? It can’t hurt you if you don’t look at it. "Don’tlookdon’tlookdon’tlook!" Walter continued to chant, rocking slightly in place.
For a very long time there was silence. Walter could only hear something rustle the grass and leaves near. Was someone coming towards him? He couldn’t dare himself to look. There was another long period of silence before Walter felt a hand gently place on his shoulder. The fingers were long and thin and shaking with fear. Walter finally breathed and removed his hands.
"Walter! NO!" Wilson cried from across the path. Walter could hear him jump out from his hiding spot and running towards him, but he couldn’t look.
The glowing orange eyes consumed him.

((That use to be my favorite story as a little kid, but I got the version where the ants are kind and take in the grasshopper… instead of the grasshopper freaking DYING!! 8’D))

Walter and Wanda would mostly likely end up playing some variation of Poker, with Wanda losing most of the hands and being a lousy loser because of it.
it’s a good thing strip poker probably hasn’t been invented yet
I’m sending this letter over to you on a rabbit so I know you’ll see it. Please stop sending trinkets to me. I know your ways, and I know it’s all a joke to you, and I really don’t appreciate it at all. Please cease and desist before I decide to eat one of your rabbits.
Stop being a twat,
I think the good question to ask is what wouldn’t they argue about! I feel like the argument that comes up the most would be them bickering about Walter’s flirtatious nature. Wanda can see right through his intentions, and doesn’t appreciate it at all, (as it hits a little too close to home).
Being soaking wet really hampers Wanda’s mood, so being stuck with Walter while there’s a storm going on would probably only result in failed attempts to provoke her. Though, I could see that leading to an actual conversation between them that doesn’t involve flirting!
can bet Walter would be one to invent that
I STARTED TO LAUGH OUT LOUD, OH MY GOD, RABBOTS ARE NOW WALTER’S WELL KNOWN WEEK PONT AHAHAH *Giggles like crazy for threats towards rabbits*
Ah, it’s most common reason of his argues with women sadly. Though I don’t know how would he react if he learn why Wanda is so sharp about this topic, yet.
Oh wow, that would be something Aaaalso, usually when his flirt attempts fails really miserably and he sees it wouldn’t work at all, he switches from “don Juan” to “annoying little brother”. I don’t know what is worse. ]]
"This redhead is smart, he can think fast and outside the box, but on the other hand… He distracts terribly easly. If he would only focus for more than 5 minutes, maybe he will actually achieve something, but now…? I hardly believe he will graduate. "
"Walter is really dear child. He’s very timid and cries for trival reasons, but he has trully golden heart! *laughs* He brings me flowers all the time and tells how he loves me and how he’s going to marry me! I can’t explain to him it’s impossible, but it’s really sweet of him. My little boy loves birds nearly as me, he knows everything about them. He surpries me with his knowledge sometimes, I honestly would like to know where he learns it. Only one thing I wish, that he would be a little more forward, just… a tiny bit. Like his sister. "
Aldway Firelly, His mother
[[ I just had idea, when Walter in the spirit of Christmas wants to tell everyone christmas story (because he’s really good at storytelling and is one-person theater troupe) and announce he will tell quite new story and he’s curious if anyone will knows it, and he’s starting to narrate “A Christmas Carol" which is new for Walter but it’s classic for everyone else and they’re just listening with amused smiles and just agfsgfsdahs ]]
"He plays with us, even he’s old"
"But not that old."
"Buh, but adults don’t play with us usualy"
"And he knows so many stories! I like how he narrates them!"
"AND HE MADE ME A BRACELET SEEE?"
"Once he let me wear his pilot cap, I will become a pilot too!"
"You can’t become a pilot, you’re a giiirl."
"I WILL, He told that his sister is a pilot too! And if she’s a sister she’s a girl too!"
“You won’t become a pilot anyway.”
Kids from backyard
"Oh, Walter…? It’s this ginger pilot boy? I speak with him only once I think, he seems very shy with girls. *giggles* I don’t see him often though, he spends more time in air than on earth. He lives across the street."
Lynn Lancashire, neighbor
"Ignorant dolt, infantile, worst of all he thinks he’s funny and shrewd… And together with his sister…? DISASTER I say, disaster! I don’t concede to kinship between us."
Jonathan McKenzie, Older stepbrother
"Best thing I can wish to this jerk, is to never meet me again, or bad things will happen…!"
Wistar Auer, Walter’s ex
" He’s biggest loser I’ve ever met in my life, sometimes I really wonder how does he cope all alone, he will never get a girl, I barely can’t belive that he’s getting laid so often, come on, his pick up lines aren’t even witty… Ha? Why are smirking like that? You’re amused? Oh, you think it’s funny? Well, you better take off this stupid smile from your face or I will help you with so, only one person who can laugh at my silly brother is me, understood?!"
Sabina Firelly: Walter’s twin sister
