Jealousy, Jealousy - Rook, Jade, Malleus
He loves you, and he knows you love him.
Why would Rook be jealous when you’re together almost every night?
And he knows where you’ve been all day.
He knows that your pupils don’t dilate when you talk to other people, just him.
In the event that a friend got too touchy, he is more concerned about your comfort, rather than jealously.
If you spend so much time away from him doing studies, he recites poems until you tell him to stop moping and you study together.
But you usually spend the night over, or he goes over to you.
So whatever the reason he is jealous for, Rook doesn’t like it.
Watches you to see if you’ll walk away from whatever because you saw Rook, and then goes up to you to swoop you away.
Isn’t aggressive, but is bolder with you.
Has a hand holding yours more, kisses you more, is around you A LOT
It doesn’t matter how small your tasks are, he’s coming with you.
Dotes on you more.
Can he do anything to help you? Are you tired, do need some water? A snack perhaps? Do your feet hurt, do you want to sit down?
Will even give you tips on your homework and practice potions with you.
And that’s how you know. Jade studies with you, sure. And yeah, he gives you tips, but it’s much more fun watching you fail and pout before he helps you actually make a potion.
But he isn’t an ass, and just helps this time.
Will take you to the small town off campus and spend a day with you. You can go to shops, get ice cream, go to the beach, or Whatever else people do in town.
It’s suspicious how he’s being more sweet than usual, so when you ask if you forgot a special day or something
“Not at all. I just wanted to keep you with me. I thought that maybe we weren’t spending so much time together.”
It’s such a normally posed sentence, but the past week, Jade picked you up from class. He doesn’t do that.
And Floyd got pissed at you because he visits Jade between classes and he didn’t find Jade and it’s your fault.
Is pouty, but tries to hide it. You can see it though.
Malleus does not like the feeling of jealousy.
As he puts it, Malleus doesn't like you being away from him for so long because what if something happened to you? What if you told him you'd be in the alchemy lab and you weren't there?
And it's because 'someone needed help with something.'
Dear, that's sweet of you, but don't worry him like that.
Dotes on you more than usual, and gifts you random things. Sometimes it's flowers he twisted into a crown, other times it might be an item from a picture you took a screenshot of.
Spends wayy more time with you.
Anytime you need him or not, he's there.
And nobody, nobody, is getting too close to you.
Will almost hit them with a shot put ball because they were asking you too many questions.
You're with him more than anyone else, and he knows you love him, so Malleus likes to call it 'being protective of you', rather than a term like jealousy.
MC: "Malleus, why did you let yourself get kidnapped and then waited for me to come rescue you when you could've killed them easily?"
Malleus: "I like it when you come rescue me
MC: "That doesn't answer my question though.."
Ignoring the Housewardens (II)
a/n: y'all liked part one more than i thought y'all would? i lowkey made that because i was bored and it was just supposed to make me laugh (like calling floyd and jade thing #1 and thing #2) anyways, thanks for the support ig? also! i mostly just reblog fics but i'll sometimes make stuff like this so enjoy!
i forgot to tag this last time but it's gn!reader x the characters. in kalim's it says "you guys" but i always say that even if it's all women so lmk if that counts as gender neutral. technically speaking the reader isn't described at all (only description is having eyebrows in vil's) but yeah, i said "you guys."
Just a random thing bouncing around my mind and I suppose to also help me with my own writer’s block:
But in the case that Yuu and Malleus have a kid, what do you think a half dragon fae/human child would look like? Do they have horns? Can they breathe fire or turn into a dragon?
I must get opinions from the expert.
Ok so you know how Mendel's Law postulates that there are dominant and recessive traits in an allele right? Though their children would fundamentally be half dragon-half human, I firmly believe that the children would sprout entirely draconic characteristics. It's highly likely that all of Malleus' gene traits are dominant, since TWST suggests that fae--and dragons even more so--are higher forms of beings compared to humans.
If their children would go on to mate with humans in successive generations, however, is when the draconic traits would gradually dilute. But since Malleus' attitude and behavior suggest that he's a pure dragon (the Halloween event reveals that his TRUE form is the dragon one) then his children would absolutely inherit all of his characteristics.
I'm sorry Yuu, you'll be having an army of tiny Tsunotarou.
Hi!!! Could I ask for some fluffy HCS for Riddle, Malleus, Vil, & Floyd when they realize their s/o who has a “horrible memory” due to the fact that they don’t pay attention to things that don’t interest them has in fact memorized everything about them?
s/o knows their favorite color, their favorite ways to relax, their personal beliefs and what makes them motivated, etc. etc.
they just generally care deeply about them and seem to subconsciously seek out and happily memorize something when it’s related to their boyfriend ❤️❤️❤️
This is me, you’re asking me to write about myself. My memory is horrible, Anon, absolutely atrocious. But I can remember the most useless shit and/or certain stuff about people.
I hope you enjoy these headcanons!
Info: Yuu is reader
Yuu’s poor memory is a small pet peeve of Riddle’s but he knows that some people can’t help that their memory is bad. It could be due to a multitude of things, almost all of which are out of a person's control.
But when he finds out Yuu’s horrible memory is simply because they don’t pay attention he isn’t happy. Is absolutely going to lecture them about not paying attention and probably brings up how it could harm their relationship.
That's when Yuu reveals that they’ve memorized everything about him up till this point. His favorite color, his birthday, his favorite food, animal, star sign.. Everything. It's touching to him that they go out of their way to remember him above all else but..
That doesn’t give them an excuse to slack on their studies. Yuu cares about him deeply, so maybe the key to their improvement is him. He offers to teach them in hopes that it will improve their attentiveness and grades.
It kind of works. They certainly pay attention to him, but unfortunately not so much the material he’s trying to show them. Though there is slight improvement.
Malleus has lived a long time and as such doesn’t remember everything himself either. He’s got other things to worry about than remember every trivial detail of the last two centuries.. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t do it though. In essence he sort of understands Yuu’s struggle to an extent.
That is until it's revealed to him that Yuu simply don't care about much to remember it. He finds it amusing, its adorable that his lover picks and chooses what they do and don’t deem important. Though it could cause some issues in the future..
He does know Yuu remembers everything he’s told them about himself, and even things other people have told them. Their memory seems to be centered on him and nealy nothing else.
He finds this touching and immensely endearing. Knowing he’s the most important and interesting thing to them is a blessing to him. They’re the same to him, his precious lovely partner.
He won’t exactly go out of his way to help Yuu improve their attentiveness, he’s more than happy it being solely on him. Though he will admit their grades could use some slight improvement.
Another one who has a slight pet peeve revolving around Yuu’s bad memory. He’ll chide them and definitely try to help them improve, self improvement is a big thing for Pomefiore after all.
And then either Rook tells him or he notices that Yuu doesn't have a "bad" memory, no, they actively choose to not pay attention. Vil is not happy, he's going to scold them for it and practically drag them into the pits memorization hell.
Once Yuu reveals that they remember everything about him and the things they find important or interesting he's flattered, but that isn't enough to save them. Vil is steadfast in his resolve to improve his partner's attention span.
There will be improvement, even if Vil has to send Rook out to make sure Yuu is keeping up with their schedule, if not they're getting dragged back to Pomefiore and not leaving until the material is drilled in.
At least their grades are improving and they get kisses as rewards, right?
Floyd can recognize Yuu's lack of attention to things that don't interest them because he's in the exact same boat. He's just more open about it, rather than hiding it behind a mask of "bad memory."
Doesn't blame them, doesn't see anything wrong with their pack of attention. College is boring, there's so many other things they could be doing than sitting through lectures.
Once he finds out Yuu remembers everything about him and finds him to be the most interesting thing to them he's ecstatic! They're getting squeezed for being so cute!
Doesn't help them improve at all, if anything he enables them, or rather they enable each other. Why pay attention to a boring lecture when they could be running around doing dumb shit and having fun?
Malleus, trying to flirt: Is that a new perfume you're wearing? It's lovely.
Yuu: It's... mosquito repellant.

Bros the type of guy...
bros the type of guy to visit you at midnight to see if you're awake and if you were, he'd asked you if you'd like take a walk with him and you feel safe knowing he's there with you when you both take a midnight stroll (and because no one is dumb enough to attack him)
bros the type of guy who would try to help you study and is very patient about it and understanding. he's never irritated if you're slow at learning or struggling to memorise, he'll take his time with you (as it is also an opportunity for him to spend quality time with you) and try to explain and teach you things
bros the type of guy to trust you with his tamagotchi, gao gao-kun when he's really busy and is unable to tend to his virtual pet. if you also have one, he'd do the same for you if you're unable to care for yours either
bros the type of guy to use "love", "my love", "dearest" as petnames
bros the type of guy to brush a strand of hair out of your face in the morning when you're still asleep, leaning down to kiss your forehead and stroke your cheek
bros the type of guy to bring you up in conversations with zero awareness of him doing so such as "ah yes, i remember the prefect talking about this. perhaps I'll get it as a gift." "the prefect enjoys this activity as well, it's quite endearing seeing how cheerful they get when it comes to it." prefect this, prefect that
bros the type of guy to send you letters when you're both far apart from each other since he has no knowledge on how technology works. his letters are always so sweet and heartwarming. he'll mention things that remind him of you, and how he wishes to bring you with him next time
bros the type of guy to randomly kiss you when you rant about something you're interested in and as he listens, his eyes trail down to your lips and without a second thought, he bends down to peck them. it catches you off guard, with you going "huh?? what was that about???" he simply smiles and says, "forgive me, i couldn't resist myself. please continue with what you were saying, my love."
bros the type to be a little jealous. not in a way that it's unhealthy, he would trust you and fully believes you love him just as he loves you and he would never stop you from having friends and spending time with them. i feel like the most he'd do is get a little pouty and try to spend more time with you, you were his first friend and first love, he just loves you a lot. he wouldn't get jealous much if people hit on you because he knows you wouldn't indulge them nor cheat but will intervene if they start going too far and making you uncomfortable but that's assuming there's actually people bold enough to even try to flirt with you if they know Malleus is your boyfriend otherwise if not, they'll find out once they see him approaching when they do too much
bros the type of guy who'd love being both being big spoon and little spoon
bros the type of guy to hold your hand while sitting next to you and say, "I'm here, love" when you're upset and/or crying. you can lean against him or even embrace him and he'll do the same thing back because he loves you. he's a great listener and will do whatever you ask him to do try and help you through whatever you're going through and may even ask Lilia for some advice unless you didn't want him to tell Lilia about it or something that could hint to you being upset
bros the type of guy who'll get anything that interests you and would also gift you some of the rarest rocks, stones or crystals on the damn planet
bros the type of guy to keep everything you give him, whether it may be considered junk or not. he'll keep it like it's treasure and will get upset if any of it goes missing. even if you tell him it's fine, he'll feel bad it's missing because anything you give him, he cherishes
bros also the type of guy to literally wear a friendship/love bracelet or necklace everyday if you ever decide to match with him and he would never take it off and would refuse to do so. only exceptions is necessary like cooking or showering/bathing or in a situation it could get ruined
bros the type of guy to listen to everything you tell him, even if it's just about drama, something random, or your interests. even if he doesn't understand nor isn't interested in the topic it itself, he would always listen because he loves to listen to you talk and knowing what makes you happy just as you do the same for him
bros the type of guy who doesn't really dwell on the fact that you are human and therefore have a shorter life span than he does. he's probably has moments when he thinks about how short your life span is and the fact that one day he'll lose you and he's afraid of it happening. otherwise at the same time, it's more of a reason to really cherish every moment. rather than focusing on his worries and fears of losing you, he spends every moment he can with you, spending quality time together and makes sure you know he absolutely loves you and how much you mean to him
bro highly appreciates you as a person, his friend/lover. you make him feel like he's not alone, and you are his whole world. bro would defend you with his life if anyone had something against you, would always support you, always there for you, listen, spend times with and would love you endlessly
I'm hopeless man

Yes it is October. Yes I am busy. And yes we have reached 200 followers. Do I have something in mind? Yes I do. Will I share it just yet? Absolutely not <33
This goes to all my fellow malleus lovers but let me be honest it’s not really yandere idk at this rate ☹️
YANDERE MALLEUS absolutely loves to see you dressed up all cute just like the little doll you are. He buys you anything you want but every little thing must come at a price, no? Just say the word ! If you so wish to desire even the rarest of jewels he would get it just for you.
YANDERE MALLEUS bows down to you alone and that’s on period. You are far greater than any treasure and he wishes to keep you to himself for as long as life goes on. Not to mention he finds it absolutely adorable whenever you struggle for some reason.
YANDERE MALLEUS would simply drop dead if he saw you in a dress. He feels the urge to cover you up so only he is allowed to see this view alright?.
YANDERE MALLEUS may seem all sweet but that’s only because you are his most beautiful jewel and the one person who can steal his heart. He tried to convince you by him locking you up in a tower is the safest way, why won’t you believe him dear? It’s for your own good! This way..no one else can steal you from him.
YANDERE MALLEUS makes sure that whenever you interact with someone he keeps tabs on them. You only need him so why are you bothering with these pesky insects? Let him take care of them for you dear. He also makes it so that all evidence is gone thanks to Sebek. He can’t let his precious treasure eyes be tainted with the bloodshed of something so unworthy now can he?

Please note that this is a female character.
characters: Malleus Draconia, F!Black Footed Cat Reader (Platonic)
You enjoyed watching the stars. It was something that you’d do back in the Sunset Savanna, climbing up on the roof of your home to gaze at the endless skies above, thousands of twinkling lights ready to greet you every night. It was maybe one of your favourite parts of the Savanna.
You hadn’t found many stargazing spots you enjoyed at Night Raven College. The Savanaclaw dorm was out, lest Jack spot you in the lounge or outside the dorm and pester you. The sports field could work, but you didn’t like the idea of lying in an open field, for anybody to see. And then you found the semi-abandoned dorm on the cusp of the school grounds.
The courtyard of Ramshackle Dorm was peaceful enough, considering that ghosts haunted the halls. Either way, they never bothered you, so you perched yourself upon a tree and enjoyed the view. You didn’t really know the prefect of Ramshackle, so you didn’t know how happy they’d be with you laying on their roof.
But you soon came to discover that you weren’t the only one who’d frequent the courtyard of Ramshackle dorm at night. On the first night you spotted the horned student, you paid him no mind and before you knew it, he was gone. The next night he was back again, and you found yourself engaging in a staring content of sorts with him. Bright green slit pupils bore into your feline ones, and you merely stared back, undaunted. Neither of you said a word, and eventually he teleported away, leaving pretty green fireflies in his wake. It was the third night that you finally decided to converse with him. You engaged in another staring contest, and after a long moment you decided to lean forward on the branch you had settled on, breaking the three day silence that had reigned between you so far, “that thing you did yesterday, which left the fireflies? That was cool.”
He seemed surprised by your sudden compliment, or perhaps it was something else, as he hesitated for a moment before he responded. His wrist flicked, and a single firefly floated out of the palm of his hand. You watched the floating insect as it drifted away from his palm but did not stray too far.
“Why do you dwell here, little beastman?” You raised your eyebrow at his address for you, but merely settled back on your branch. “I like to watch the stars here.” You responded nonchalantly, with a small shrug of your shoulder.
The fae glanced up before looking back at you, “the stars?”
“The stars. Watching them reminds me of home.” Your eyes end up back at the sky again and you both lapse into silence again. When you look back down again, you expect him to be gone, only to find him also staring up at the stars. His eyes seem pensive, as if he’s considering something. You are almost reluctant to disturb him. Almost.
“F/N,” you say simply, “My name is F/N, not ‘little beastman’.”
The fae focuses his attention on you again, his lips downturning slightly, “has my manner of address offended you?”
“No, but I guess we’re midnight friends now, so you might as well know my name.” His eyes widened at you statement and again he hesitated, before slowly a smile began to spread across his lips. “I see. Then perhaps I shall permit you to name me as you like.”
Your eyebrow raised again at his words, something you were seeing becoming a common theme with this fae, and your head tilted in intrigue, “would I need to? You’re Housewarden Draconia, right? From Diasomnia?” you swear you could see a hint of disappointment in his eyes, but you had no idea why, “but if you’d like a nickname... Huh. I guess I’ll just call you Mal-senpai, then.”
Malleus’ eyes grew once again, and he appeared quite lost for words. You swung your legs idly from the branch, and observed the fae before you. You didn’t know much about him, apart from whatever scathing comments Leona had batted out from time to time. But that was Leona, and you were pretty sure many people on campus had scathing comments about the lion beastman also.
“So,” you broke the silence again, seeing that the contemplative gleam had entered Malleus’ eyes again as you observed him, “why do you dwell here?” Malleus’ eyes focused once again, and he pressed a hand to his chin idly, “I am fond of the peace in these ruins. Until recently, these ruins were abandoned and I was able to enjoy nightly walks undisturbed.”
Your eyes widened slightly and you felt slightly taken aback by his statement, “Oh. I hope I haven’t ruined your walks. I guess I could try to find somewhere else...” You couldn’t help but grimace at your own suggestion, not really keen on leaving the comfortable spot you’d recently laid claim to.
Again, a glint appeared in Malleus’ eye that you couldn’t identify, and he was quick to cut you off, “You do not disturb me, lit-- F/N. I do not find myself disturbed by your presence.” You found yourself grinning at his more stilted way of speaking, finding it amusing yet oddly endearing.
“So, you like walking around ruins?” you ask, taking the opportunity to get to know your new friend before he decided to vanish in a flurry of fireflies again. “You could say that exploring ruins is one of my hobbies,” Malleus answered, “in actuality, my club activities comprise solely of visiting ruins and studying their gargoyles.”
Your ears pricked up at that, twitching in intrigue as you took a moment to process, before pointing an inquisitive finger Malleus’s way, “the Gargoyle Studies club? I was supposed to join that club!”
Malleus seemed surprised by your words, his head tilting minutely, “you were?”
“Yeah!” you exclaimed, “well... I wanted to join but... When I visited during freshmen recruitment season, there was no one at the classroom. I did wait but, no one showed up.” You shrugged a shoulder, and Malleus continued to look surprised.
“I see... This appears to be a lapse of my judgment. For I am the only member of the Gargoyle Studies club.” Malleus lamented, and you wouldn’t be wrong for thinking that his eyes seemed akin to a scolded puppy at this realisation. “Don’t worry about it,” you attempted to pacify, not wanting it to dampen the mood.
“... Would you still consider joining the Gargoyle Studies club?” You were surprised by his sudden proposition, and even more surprised to see him staring at you keenly.
“Well I’m part of the Science club now...” The keen expression from Malleus’ face fell and he frowned, almost looking like he could pout, “... But I guess I could quit.”
A smile graced Malleus features again at your follow up, almost smug in origin, “I will come for you when I proceed with club activities next.”
Your lips quirked at his intimidating phrasing. It wasn’t a surprise that most of the student body was terrified of him when he so casually spoke such sentences. But from what you’d seen tonight, once you looked past the questionable word choices and intimidated stature, he seemed like every other student in this place.
With a push of your palm, you slipped down off of the branch and landed gracefully at the base of the tree. Now that you were on the ground, Malleus towered over you, to the extent that you had to crane your neck. That would take some getting used to. You flash Malleus a friendly smile and gesture forwards,
“Well then, shall we walk?”

You/Your pronouns for reader.
Warnings: Reader climbs a tower, heights.
Tsunotarou used for Malleus.
Romance is not explicitly stated. It's up to your interpretation.
Malleus maybe OOC
When you arrived at NRC, you didn't have time to explore the campus. You had decided to take a night walk. There was an ancient tower nearby, and you decided to observe it.
When you got there, fireflies flew around you, and some crawled around your face. You peered up and saw a figure on top of the tower.
"Huh? Who is that?"
Part of the outside of the tower had fallen, revealing stairs. You placed your foot on the bottom step, it didn't move, so you placed your entire foot on it. Each step you tried it even though none of the stairs broke off. You stepped onto the top, and stared at the figure.
"Tsunotaro?" The fae turned and smiled at you.
"How great of you to come and see me, Child of Man."
"What are you doing on this tower?" You asked, as the fireflies returned. Malleus looked up and you followed his gaze. The vast amount of stars shined down on you.
You stood in awe at the sight.
"I simply came to observe the stars," Malleus said. "Would you like to watch them with me?"
Oddly specific, but could you write about how Malleus, Lilia, and Leona would take care of a reader who works at a hospital and has been working overtime and is getting burnt out, but refuses to relax? Thank you. 🥺
Burn Out - Malleus, Lilia, & Leona
Doesn’t like forcing you to do anything.
But he can't sit there while he sees you hurting yourself. You need proper sleep, and he's afraid that any moment you'll pass out somewhere because all forms of you is exhausted.
Emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausted.
Here is a herbal tea to calm your stress. How about you take a nap? His arms are always open to you. Would you like a snack?
Tries doing these little things for you to gently coax you to sleep and relaxing without actually forcing you.
But if you don't take it, he starts to get a bit worried.
When you finally come home, he's sleeping with you, and he won't let go the next morning until you call work to tell them you're taking a day off.
And he's still not letting go. You just stay in bed and catch up on sleep. But if you really won't, then you just sit and look pretty.
Dear, don't you know that's not good for you?
And he knows you know so he isn't going to tell you that.
Instead, Lilia will tell you his deduction of your burn out, and proceed to say that he wants you to rest.
He knows you know the damaging effects so he isn't going to repeat it.
He'll mention it casually when he puts you in a lock so you stay in pillows and blankets.
Doesn't want to resort to locking you down though, so asks you nicely to stay and take a day off.
You need a mental health day, and he's more than glad to help. Anything you need.
Chocolate, sleep, tea, alone time, all of it. But you aren't allowed paperwork or any work in general. Just rest.
Will say that you look tired.
Will then pick you up, and it doesn't matter how much you complain, you're going to bed. He does that sometimes anyway so it shouldn't be a problem.
He knows you want to, so take a breather will ya?
You're sore in all aspects, and he doesn't like it when you're cranky, so get your ass to bed and stay there.
You don't have to sleep right now, but you aren't doing work.
How about the two of you go outside and lay in the grass under the sun?
And yes, the two of you because he knows you'll run off and really burn yourself out if he doesn't keep you on a leash. (not literally, it's a form of figurative speech.)
He doesn't want to add to your stress though, so he'll be a charming asshole and coax you into relaxing.
Rumor Has It

Note: Like I said, this is probably better for Valentine's Day, but I wanted to publish it anyways. I might try to write some spooky (not really) prompts later.
There’s a rumor going around that the Ramshackle prefect has somehow befriended the fearsome Malleus Draconia.
Leona usually doesn’t care what gossip travels through the school as long as it isn’t about him. However, this particular rumor draws his attention because it’s about you and the horned bastard.
So when he arrives at the library during your usual study session, which usually means you work and Leona take a nap, he can’t help but stare. You finally look up from your notes, meeting his piercing gaze.
Chin resting on the palm of his hand, he regards you quietly. After a beat of silence, he scowls. “You’re friends with that lizard,” he states.
Your brows knit together as you try to wrack your brain on who Leona could be referring to. Understanding dawns as your features smooth. “You mean Malleus? You could say we’re friends...”
“Better be careful that monster doesn’t make you his next meal,” he scoffs.
Rolling your eyes, you wave off his comment. “Malleus isn’t like that. He’s…” you pause as you try to find the right words “he’s different, but he’s nice. He wants to make friends even if he’s a bit intimidating, but that’s not really his fault.”
“Sounds like you like him.” His eyes narrow. Leona notices the way your features soften and your lip curves upward slightly when talking about the lizard. There’s a brightness in your eyes that is hard not to notice. A sort of soft ache settles in his chest as your eyes widen as you quickly babble out a denial.
“We-we’re just friends!” Tugging at your shirt collar, you avert your gaze. “Go to sleep, I can’t study with you talking to me,” you grumble.
Before he can say anything else, a sharp ‘shhh!’ from Riddle forces him to snap his mouth closed. He buries his head in his arms, but can’t sleep as your expression floats in the front of his thoughts.
There’s a rumor that the Ramshackle prefect is giving out chocolates to a certain Malleus Draconia.
He hears your footsteps before you come into view. In his usual napping place in the botanical gardens, you peer down at him from above. His nose twitches when a small red box is placed on his chest.
“What’s this?” He sits up as he takes the offered box.
“I made chocolate,” you explain. “Anyways, I thought you’d like some, though I’m sure you already received plenty from admirers.”
Taking off the lid, perfectly square pieces of chocolate sit in neat rows in the box. He pops a piece in his mouth. The chocolate is smooth with a sweet yet bitter taste. “Dark chocolate…”
“Yup! I thought you might like it over milk. Plus, dark chocolate is supposed to be better for your health,” you inform him with a grin.
“Not bad, herbivore.” He covers the chocolates to save for later. “So, you like me?” He smirks as you give him a gentle swat on the top of his head.
Adjusting your book-bag, you shake your head. “Of course I like you. I wouldn’t let you nap on me otherwise.” Glancing down at your phone, you sigh. “Sorry I have to head to class. See you later?”
He gives you a halfhearted wave before settling back down for a nap. Your footfalls retreat in the distance as he finds himself unable to stop the small smile on his face.
However, his good mood doesn’t last for long as he hears some students gossiping later in the day. He feels a jab in his chest again and absently touches his chest. He’s still clutching your box of chocolates as he stalks through the campus to Ramshackle dorm.
In the distance he can make out your figure at the gates of the dorm and the taller form of the lizard. You hand a similar red box over with a laugh. The chocolate he ate before leaves a horrible feeling in his mouth.
His keen hearing picks up your words as they float down the pathway. “...make gargoyle shaped chocolates. I hope you like them, Malleus!”
Leona’s jaw aches from clenching so much. “Thank you, child of man. These are…amazing.” He can hear the awe in the overgrown monster’s voice.
When he nears, you look over. Your lips are pressed into a pleased smile, and your eyes glitter brightly. “Oh, Leona? I thought I was meeting you in the library.” The glitter fades as you meet his gaze.
He throws the other male a look before shrugging. “I decided I wanted to take a nap at Ramshackle.” He saunters right between you and the horned bastard and deftly grabs your arm. He pulls you away without stopping as you give a quick good-bye.
One glance over his shoulder, Leona can’t help but feel victorious as the great Malleus Draconia stands by the gate looking dejected. Serves him right.
There’s a rumor going around that the Ramshackle prefect has fallen for Malleus Draconia.
Leona hears this rumor while waiting for class to start. His ears twitch as the students around him gossip in hushed whispers. He grinds his teeth as he hears that monster’s name mentioned with you again.
Leona leaves so he can’t hear anymore. His head pounds as he decides he needs a nap before he ends up snapping at someone. His walk through the empty halls is interrupted by a familiar laugh. Your laugh.
His blood runs cold as another, deeper, laugh mixes with your own. He doesn’t want to believe the rumor, but his heart can’t stop pounding loudly. As he rounds the corner, he sees you with the lizard. You’re leaning against the stone wall of an alcove while the lizard hovers over you.
You hold the monster’s hand as you jabber about something. He doesn’t take his eyes off your face as he listens intently. You two are intimately close, and there’s no denying that there’s something going on. You’re too engrossed in your conversation to notice Leona pass by.
It’s for the better.
He’s not angry at you. No, he’s angry at himself for not acting. He should’ve done something the moment those idiotic rumors started going around. But he brushed them off, and he foolishly believed you would eventually pick him. Yet, he never really gave you a reason to choose him, and maybe you took his behavior as just a part of who he is.
Rumor has it that Leona Kingscholar is in love with the Ramshackle prefect, but he was too late.

Malleus Draconia's invitations off the top of my head:
Asking you to join his club
Asking you to help him decorate his room
Asking you to move to Diasomnia
Inviting you to see his personal rose garden
Inviting you to experience Briar Valley's Halloween
His next invitations would be random shit like "Briar Valley's fish taste good you should have some at my kitchen" or "I will knit a scarf for you please watch me make it in my room on the 12th floor of Briar Castle"
twst boys as babysitters
characters: leona kingscholar, malleus draconia, vil schoenheit
summary: cheka comes to visit leona! instead of being a responsible adult, leona throws the burden onto you … and the poor unfortunate soul that happened to be with you at the time. tldr; twst boys as babysitters
cw: established relationship, gn!reader, crack & fluff, sfw. not proof read. wc: 1.5k+
“oi, herbivore. got you something.” leona calls, dragging his feet into your room, hands hidden behind his back. “early birthday present. keep this one forever.”
now you’re no stranger to receiving gifts from your boyfriend (though he won’t admit that he likes to spoil you) but something about his tone makes you worry.
surprise!!!! he raises cheka above his head, who squeals with delight at the motion, making grabby hands when he sees you. you’re his favourite person after his uncle leona, after all!
cue a moment of silence … you’re staring at leona, he’s staring at you … and cheka … is still raised in the air.
“leona, stop dumping things on me all the time.”
“but he likes you. take care of him for me.” which actually means ‘he’s disturbing my sleep and i need to get him off my back.’
you refuse, obviously, and propose that the pair of you babysit together. you’re meeting him halfway.
leona agrees too quickly. perhaps he wants to spend time with you—and okay, maybe he missed cheka too. the little brat.
there is something so endearing about the way leona interacts with his nephew
leona, who has an abundance of smarts and strength, is nothing more but a flickering candlelight when put against the blazing fire that is cheka kingscholar.
his power knows no bounds.
if you’re stuck with these two, expect a lot of play-fights
leona complains and verbalises very often how annoying it is, yet never bothers to physically remove cheka off him. he simply takes the hits, feigning pain afterwards.
“that really hurt. i’m tired now.” leona, be for real. just admit you’re a softie
but beware. if he’s in the mood, he might fight back. and leona shows NO mercy.
it doesn’t matter that cheka is a child! he’s preparing him for the REAL world
oh boy, here come the crocodile tears
when cheka is tired out, it’s time for leona’s favourite time of the day.
no, not lunch time, nap time!!!!
you know the saying two’s company, three’s a crowd? you’re spooning on a bed that’s definitely not made for three.
leona’s arms are strung loosely around your waist, his head in the nook of your neck
cheka is curled up in a little ball against your chest
it’s kind-of a squeeze, but it’s also comforting, their soft snores filling the otherwise quiet room
until cheka wakes up again, and this time he has his eyes on another opponent.
you’re trying to introduce malleus to your favourite shows, and he’s slowly getting into them as well
in fact, maybe he’s teleported outside your door in order to find out what happens in the next episode of the said show, and not because he wants to be with you.
he rings the door once, then twice, then thrice, but you don’t show up
he knows you’re a busy person, so he tries his hardest to be patient. either way, he’s certain he’d wait eons for you if that’s what you asked him to do.
when you turn up with leona’s nephew in his hands, he …
well, he doesn’t do anything at all, actually
he doesn’t even ask about it. you guys just carry on and sit in ramshackle as if everything is normal.
like hello???? are we going to address the furball other than grim in the room or not?
cheka: *scratching malleus’ horns like they’re ears*
malleus: ???? This Is Fine.
the truth is he’s scared
he’s malleus draconia, a fae feared by all—rendered immobile by a child attempting to swing from his horns.
you’re shocked he’s just letting it happen… he’s just sitting staring at the tv screen as if nothing is bothering him, but his whole body is visibly tense.
cheka is a talkative kid, and malleus is fascinating to him, so he just has so many questions! “why are you so tall?” “are you really a fairy?” “why don’t you look like the ones in storybooks?” “are your horns even real?”
“i don’t know. why don’t you check for me?” it’s an invitation for cheka to go wild, to do as he pleases
except malleus is NOT smiling, so it goes unnoticed
cheka is like :3 and malleus is like : |
malleus doesn’t want to scare the cub away, he wants to chat with him! he wants to play!!!
but he lacks the verbal skills to communicate properly
he thinks back to silver as a young boy and finds a way to keep cheka entertained
“little lion, would you like to spar?”
silver may have been training at a young age, but this is different. he was not raised by two fae.
despite your desperate pleas, cheka agrees.
malleus is grinning, a rare sight—its giddy and goofy and so youthful, you don’t have the heart to stop them
they sit crossed-legged on your bed with spoons for swords, violently clashing against each other
malleus is REALLY serious about it, though. he’s smiling, but he’s also teaching cheka at the same time
“good one.” “this is your opponents’ blind spot.” “you should try this on your uncle leona.”
you’re starting to think he’s doing this purposely.
but this is the most fun you’ve seen him have in a while, so you suppose leona will just have to pay the price of leaving cheka in your care.
why on earth is leona’s nephew sitting in pomefiore’s lounge, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed?
he has half the mind to curse out leona next time he sees the beastman, but then you appear behind him.
his frown and his thoughts falter a little. (his lips subconsciously pull upwards into a smile whenever he’s around you. it really is a bother that he cannot control his emotions better, considering he’s an actor.)
“did you bring him here?” he points at cheka, tone accusatory, but lacking any real bite.
all he wanted was to spend time with you. now he’s plagued by some child who didn’t even know the basic instruction ‘sit.’
upon closer inspection, he shrieks and moves backwards from cheka quickly.
“prefect, where are his shoes??”
you’re joking, right? please tell him you’re joking.
“so you’ve been having him walk around OUTSIDE barefoot?”
“he’s just … one with nature!” you laugh lightly to quell his anger.
he is not laughing. not this time.
Mother Nature may be smiling down on Cheka, but Vil Schoenheit is not.
his feet. his feet.
those feet have been walking all over the school, who-knows-where, and now they were padding across his previously immaculate carpet. holy seven, he thinks he sees the shape of a foot-print staining the floor already.
that’s it. it’s bath time, he declares, demanding you to swoop the child into your arms and follow him as fast as you can to the en-suite bathroom in his dorm room.
it’s already a battle alone trying to get cheka into the bathtub. cheka hates water, mewing, thrashing his body about and scrunching his nose like a bratty kitten.
but fear not. you’re lucky your boyfriend vil is an esteemed warrior in the sense that he has had plenty experience getting messy kids to behave (*cough*, epel)
get your tickets for Queen vs. Future King Of Sunset Savanna NOW!!! they’re going at it like it’s wordstar
once he’s in the bathtub, things are a lot more calm.
vil is … surprisingly sweet? his voice is gentle and soothing as he works away humming to a tune you’re unfamiliar with, assuring you that you can sit back and relax.
you’ve never seen him interact with children before, but you realise he acts as he does with everything else he cares about—practical and meticulous—although he can be harsh at times, he has good intent.
perhaps it’s the atmosphere of being around someone so young rubbing off on him, but he’s a tad playful, styling cheka’s hair in funny ways with shampoo. at one point cheka’s hair stands so tall above his head, it may rival malleus’ height. just kidding, but you get the point.
afterwards, he lets cheka use his favourite scented creams, as a reward for being good. the plethora of items displayed on his vanity was more than enough to make anybody with a penchant for self-care jealous.
cheka is overjoyed, his sense of smell heightened compared to you and vil, who were only human. the different scents around him are stimulating; he’s content having vil place pea-sized pumps of cream in the palms of his hand.
“smell.” vil orders. he waits for an opinion: “smells fruity, like oranges!” which is about as much descriptive lingo a five year-old can muster up before repeating the process all over again.
you had to stop cheka from trying to eat vil’s products several times
“yes, it smells like summer fruits with a dash of honey drizzled over and a side of fat-free greek yogurt, but it doesn’t taste like it!”
to anyone else it may have seemed quite strange, but to them, it was exciting.
at the end of the day, vil may not have edible treats to give to cheka, or the will to play-fight, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care.
Malleus: I love you.
Yuu: How many people do you tell that same thing to?
Malleus: Yes. I tell everyone that I love you.
