I adore your fic 100 ways to say I love you and I wait for a new chapter everyday.
In TVWLM Kate's insecurities are one of the things i love about her character and its what makes her so relatable to me. But I wanted to give you angsty prompt( a happy ending if you do write it) , how she tells him how unfit she is to marry someone like him and then Anthony being indignant on her behalf.
I think its prompt 90 " i just want you to be happy"
Dearest anon— I know you technically asked for prompt 92, “I want you to be happy,” which another anon also prompted (and will come soon, I promise!). There was no way to combine the parameters for both of your prompts. However, you miswrote your request as number 90, and I actually think that prompt works better for insecure Kate, so I’ve used it instead; I hope that’s alright!
no escaping your love #22: talk (Read 1-21 here.)
#90. "You can tell me anything."
Kate couldn’t be in the drawing room anymore. It had been a whirlwind of a day, and all she wanted to do was curl up into a ball in her bed and cry. About what, she wasn’t exactly sure, but certainly the situation she’d found herself in—engaged to the Viscount Bridgerton, who had been courting her sister up until this morning—seemed like one worthy of a few tears.
As the new center of attention, there was no way to sneak off, so after a curtsy to Lady Bridgerton—Violet—she left the room as quickly as she could. She didn’t slow down even after she was out of sight. And especially not when she heard footfalls behind her.
“Kate!” Anthony called just as her hand gripped the banister. She froze and looked over her shoulder at him, frowning as he crossed the hall towards her. “Are you well?”
“Perfectly, my lord,” she said, and it sounded unconvincing even to her own ears. Perhaps it shouldn’t have surprised her when Anthony gripped her arm and pulled her down a hallway, but it did, if her squeak was anything to go by.
He led her into a study—apparently they could only conduct conversation surrounded by books or lakes—and shut the door. She pressed her lips together and, before she could chicken out, said, “Why, Lord Bridgerton. Should we be unchaperoned like this?”
He laughed, a true laugh that made her feel warm inside. His gaze on her didn’t help matters. Truly, it was growing quite hot.
“I suppose if we’ll get caught we’ll just have to get married.” She tried to smile—it was the punchline to her own joke, after all—but it didn’t feel like a laughing matter any more, not now that the words had really been spoken aloud. It sounded like a chapter from some other Kate Sharma’s life.
She must’ve made some sort of sound or face because Anthony suddenly frowned at her. He took a step forward and his hands twitched awkwardly, like he wanted to reach out and take hers but stopped himself at the last minute.
“Kate, I— I hope you know that you can tell me anything. That might be troubling you.”
She did, of course. He’d seen her last night in the library—really seen her.
“I’m just tired, my lord. And...overwhelmed.”
“Overwhelmed?” he asked, his frown deepening. Now he did reach for her hand. “Did something happen?”
“This happened, Anthony. I’m just an earl’s granddaughter. I’m not— I’m not fit to be a viscountess, I’m not as social or welcoming or beautiful—”
“Stop that this instant.” He took the hand that wasn’t holding hers and used it to cup her face, a strange intensity in his gaze. “I never want to hear you say anything like that again.”
“Do you think I would marry someone I didn’t think would be a wonderful viscountess? Do you think I would be friends with someone who had nothing to offer the world?”
“Then why do you think yourself to be either of those things?”
She stuttered, trying to find the words. He was so close, and every inch of him touching her, even through his gloves and hers, seemed to set her nerves on fire. It was hard to find rational thought. Or, perhaps if she was understanding his point, irrational thought.
“Will not be my wife.”
Not anymore her traitorous mind supplied. And the illusion snapped.
She pulled away from him, dropping her hand loosely against her side. She gestured towards the door without looking him in the eye.
“You should go back. People will talk—”
“Let them,” he said, and then he kissed her. She startled, woefully unprepared, but then she tentatively wrapped her arms around his neck, pulling him down closer to hers as their lips met again and again. A different heat, the one she’d felt in his study, in the gazebo, grew in her, making her bold, making her want to cast away every doubt she had and bury herself in him.
But Lady Danbury’s words, and Cressida Cowper’s glares, and Anthony’s promise, and Edwina’s face rattled around her brain. And even when he let her go and led her back to the staircase, they lingered. Waiting, waiting, waiting.

Kate Herron, the Loki showrunner, was also the creator of Sex Education (Netflix 2019)!
Sex Education is one of the best teen shows out there! The characters are lovable, and the story, which does deal with sex, isn't too dark or over the top, like Riverdale. It's just about teens discovering themselves and becoming friends. Otis, the main character, is the awkward son of a Sex Therapist. His mother is very quirky and fun and has almost no filter when it comes to sex. Otis, on the other hand, is very awkward about the whole subject. He can talk about it with friends and become a sex therapist for his fellow students, but he never deals with it himself. He meets some new friends at school, and they're the ones to get him out of his shell.
I think it's really a character-driven show, and it works! The characters start off as stereotypes, but the writers quickly flip those tropes upside down. There's just a lot to love in this show!
Anyway, I know Kate probably wasn't the only genius behind Sex Education; credit is due to the other writers as well. Still, since that show was done very good, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt when it comes to Loki! In gonna watch more episodes of Loki before I judge whether the writers are incompetent or not. As of June 15th when I wrote this post, we only have the pilot episode. Give the show a chance before claiming the writers hate Loki!
