Ooh Tuco.

First impression

He’s cute and has his funny moments but I’m also tired of westerns portraying poc in particular as comic relief/sidekicks

Impression now

Once again, thank god for this fandom and their storytelling skills

Favorite moment

I like how open and real and truthful he got in that whole scene with his brother. I think in the whole movie, aside from him running around the cemetery, that was my favorite part

Idea for a story

I think I would like to see someones take on his backstory

Unpopular opinion

I??? Don’t think I have one??

Favorite relationship

This is gonna sound super corny but I like his relationship with himself if that makes any sense. With Blondie it’s like a love-hate (I’m referring to canon here) and with Angel he doesn’t really have one? But with himself he’s so comfortable in who he is and how he carries himself it’s really….I can stan

Favorite headcanon

I saw a comic (it’s was also 70s au) someone drew of him in a v colorful shirt and I can stand behind this

Tuco for the asks!

First impressions: …the moment when he’s frantically trying to mount the horse and Blondie helps him up, was that when I realised I liked him?

Impressions now: white dudes playing POC is a fraught question but dang I needed this story in my life, so.

Favorite moment: for the sake of variety, let’s say “that bit when Eli is veering to avoid Surprise Dog” in the cemetery. Lols.

Idea for a story: having given way to the inevitable and given him a goodish number of cousins for the 70s AU, I kinda wanna do a post canon story where Blondie tags along with him for Christmas and everything is v. Catholic and Mexican and Blondie is. Awkward. 

Unpopular opinion: …yeah ok so it’s valid to say “he says he’s married, he is” but I’d. Rather think he’s saying that to piss off Pablo.

Favourite relationship: ….yeah Blonco no question. Can’t say Angel Eyes, despite intriguing backstory implications and soup sharing, cos Blondie might play mind games but at least he doesn’t lose teeth in that relationship. Christ.

Favourite headcanon: oranges? Oranges.
