"Whoever's up there... Make this thing stop playing already!"
They were beyond frustrated at this point. Couldn't they get some peace and quiet? If not in their room, at least in their head. They desperately wanted to kick that piano broken. It just wouldn't stop playing.
(Name) covered their ears, hoping that that annoying voice would shut up already. It was hopeless. Everything was. To an unbearable tune, a stupid room, this world... Themselves. They felt like an idiot.
As they shut their eyes and laid on their bed, an image of a misty world appearing in their head, one where they kept themselves.
Sometimes, they'd see someone leaving. That someone who they loved, that someone they held onto desperately. Why were they like this? Why did they have to rely on someone they knew would leave eventually?
They didn't want to live like this anymore. It was never their fault, but still, why? (Name) wasn't someone of high status, they weren't important to the world they lived in. They were just... Them. Someone who to themselves is less than useless.
Maybe if they realized this "curse" when they were younger, they wouldn't have turned out like this. If they didn't... Would they finally be able to live their life like they always wanted? It was too late now, anyway. If they could, they'd chase the light in their head so it didn't stop shining. After all, they have always had enough time.
Everything they had now was something to reassure them that everything would be okay, even though it wouldn't. It was all an illusion they made. The piano, their imagination, the "wonderland" they were in. That broken smile they gave themselves each and every time they saw someone leave...
People can't hold light. Light is something that slips through your fingers when you try to hold onto it, so who were they to be able to hold onto that same illumination everyone wanted too?
The soft cries from a room in the corridor awoke him. The door was slightly open when Malleus approached it, letting some light into the dark room. Although he was not the type to go into someone's room without their permission, such cries were concerning to his ears.
Surely his beloved wouldn't mind if it was just this time, right?
The door slowly creaked open. The noise that was made from it sounded like an out of tune piano. (Name) jumped a little before sitting up, hastily wiping their "ugly" tears away in hopes of making themselves look at least presentable to their visitor.
"(Name)...?" That familiar voice sounded distant. A piano that didn't exist in their head, maybe? One they didn't want to stop unlike the one they had. One that they beg to keep playing on.
They completely ignored Malleus's existence, their tears continuing to fall no matter how much they try to stop them from streaming down their face. They didn't want to face him. They didn't want him to see them like this.
He didn't know how to approach them, but for now... All he could do was to cast a spell over them. One that would make them a little calmer. One that would make them drift off to sleep.
Malleus walked up to them, covering a blanket over their sleeping self, before walking back outside. Right as he was about to leave, he looked at them.
"I don't want to see you cry anymore, so I'll leave."
And with that, the room was pitch dark again.
Reblogs and follows appreciated <3
i can't stop thinking about the supervillains finding out twst!yuu is dating their dorm leader self
like, for example: malleus and twst!yuu,, so yeah you can't bring them with you to the supervillain dimension, tsunotarou... they are in love lol
idk if this makes sense and if it doesn't i'm sorry,, english is not my first language-
Thank you for the ask, dear anon!
No, don’t worry, your english is perfectly fine! And that would throw quite a wrench into Malleus’s plans, wouldn’t it?
Though I can’t help but think it’d be funnier if twst!Yuu wasn’t dating the twst!version of the supervillain in question, per say…but everyone can see the chemistry and UST between them and Yuu, and there’s several bets running in each dorm on who’ll confess first, and when and how the relationship will start.
So not only have you got the overblot boys (since they aren’t all dorms leaders XD) objecting to the abduction of the object of their not so secret affections before they can make a move, you also have their respective dorms strenuously protesting the ruining of a months-long betting pool, while Yuu themself is trying to talk their way into staying without letting their secret crush slip poorly.
Yeah, everyone can see it. Nobody is fooled.
The corresponding supervillain would be. So smug. All grins and insinuations that since their high-school counterparts ended up together, it must be fate, right, reporter?
Everyone else is very quick to chime in with statistics about how unlikely it is that a high school relationship lasts into adulthood.
Reporter!Yuu is just embarrassed for their younger counterpart and themselves and would like to go home and get some sleep, please.
Malleus: Wait- you don't have a lover?
Yuu: I have strict parents. What about you? Why don't you have a lover?
Malleus: You have strict parents :)
ps: yuu(ta) uses he/they 🖤
Yuu throws a birthday party for Malleus, but he doesn't show up.
Yuu: Tsunotarou's pranking me, right?
Yuu: Wait. That's impossible. He has no sense of humor.
yuu: i'm not going anywhere.
The last chapter of Book 5 made me more of a Malleus Simp!!!!
Thousand students in NRC, why don't any of they invite this cute boy to any of the festival!🤧
Behold! The crown prince of the Briar Valley, sulking because he didn't get a postcard.😒☹️
Look how happy this boy look to know that the Ramshackle perfect did not send it not because they are afraid of him but because he didn't tell them his name.🥺
Three stages of being invited to a ceremony
By Malleus Draconia 😖😖
Yu!!!! He called the Perfect by their name!!!
Not by their species name! Not by their title!
By their name!!!!🥰🥰
malleus says that he has a friendship bracelet for you so you hold your hand out to him but then one of your wrists is in a handcuff and you see malleus putting himself in the same handcuff you're stuck in.
Yuu: Mhm.. the juice Crowley gave me taste funny...
Yuu: I feel hot and my tummy feels bad..
*Yuu sloppily walks towards Malleus and hugs him from behind*
*Malleus picks up Yuu*
Malleus: Child of man? Ugh, you reek of wine..
Malleus: How did you get your hands on alcoho-
Crowley: Mx Yuu~ I may have given you the wrong drink ....
Crowley: Are you o-
Malleus, dark and intimating look and demonic voice: You
Crowley, scared for his life: W-wait! I can explain-- please don't get mad Mr.Draconia!
What about a yuu who likes enjoy living there?
I mean, it can be because they are introverted and they didn't have many friends. But after they come here they don't feel as lonely as before?
So basically a yuu who enjoys living in the mansion
For vampire au
Other than the initial fear/uncertainty, if you didn’t really have a life you wanted to go back to then living at the mansion wouldn’t be too bad actually.
For one, Lilia loves having you there and will try to make your life as nice as possible, with him trapping you here after all. He’ll spare no expense in getting you what you’d like, whether that be the nicest clothes or foods you’ve been craving. Lilia will try to grant you any wish he can, aside from letting you leave.
You’ve made a good group of friends, with Epel being your best friend. He’s easy to talk to and maybe the first real friend you feel like you’ve had. Not to mention Ace, Deuce, and Jack who all spend time with you. Here, you have people who actually like you, and actively want to spend time with you.
Malleus takes a special interest in you too, and you understand his loneliness better than anyone. It’s hard for both of you to make friends, but if you’re willing he’ll gladly become yours, and even something more if you’re interested.
Even the others who appear less friendly at first introduction would soften to you over time. Rook’s intial interest would develop into real friendship, which he then uses to force Vil to actually get to know you. Trey invites you to his and Riddle’s tea times; you, Ruggie, and a grumbling Leona take care of the stray cats together; Jade and Floyd drag you out (with Lilia’s permission) to dine at Azul’s fine establishment (their treat, of course). You and Jamil become friends through sheer force of Kalim’s will and constantly forcing you two to be in each other’s presence. You catch a glimpse of Idia playing a video game you’re interested in and force yourself to be social and talk to him about it. He’s as awkward as you are, which actually makes both of you feel better, and now you regularly play games with him.
Overall, living at the mansion isn’t lonely at all. You could come to be very happy there if you wanted to! It’s certain that the residents wouldn’t want you to leave anytime soon.
hello hello, i am here again to make a request, with the dormleader with a male reader who is the prince of their stories(like malleus with philip!reader and riddle with alice!reader) i just think it would be funny (and also bcs i haven't seen people do this so-)
TWST Dormleaders x Prince!Yuu
Dude this prompt has been stuck in my head I just haven't written it for whatever reason so I thank you for giving me an excuse to do so
I love this dynamic omfg
Alice’s immediate response to seeing Riddle is to look up, speak nicely, stop twiddling his fingers, point out his toes, curtsy, opens his mouth a little wider and exclaims “YES YOUR MAJESTY!”
Riddle is spooked at first but then goes “At least SOMEONE knows the rules”
Alice is incredibly reckless due to intense curiosity
But everytime Riddle gets onto you, you look up at him and go “But my queen, it was oh so curious”
Hearing your mid-atlantic accent he can’t stay mad at you you’re just too sweet🥺
You’ve been through Wonderland once before so you at least know how to play their version of croquet and a couple of the rules
I feel like a couple of times Alice would purposely break the rules to get collared because he’s so interested in how it works
Alice is just a tad naive due to his curiosity in EVERYTHING so if Riddle and Alice are having tea time and a white rabbit passes by, Alice will chase it
Riddle only knows the story of the Queen of Hearts not Alice In Wonderland so this makes no sense to him
Imagine a very short person running after a rabbit in the fields with Riddle the Housewarden chasing them in his dorm uniform😭
I can’t stop thinking of Alice with puffy blue dresses with ribbon decor, so cute I love
Alice and Chenya are immediate BFFS
Alice keeps calling him “Cheshire Cat” which he doesn’t get but he’s happy to go along with it
That scene when the Cheshire cat is distracting Alice from the Queen during a game of croquet but with Male! Alice, Chenya, and Riddle
Riddle keeps hearing small giggles behind him but he doesn’t understand why
Alice introduces the Hearslaybul boys to the “Painting the roses red” song
It’s their anthem now
AND ALICE WOULD DEFINITELY SING GOLDEN AFTERNOON TO THE GARDEN FLOWERS YOU CANT CHANGE MY MIND
Alice is overall a very happy boy who drags Adeuce on adventures and gives his queen a heart attack but also kiss attacks
Heartslaybul has been a more joyous place with the arrival of Alice
Isn’t….. isn’t the prince…. cheka
He is the prince
I don’t know how to write this unless I break some moral codes which I’m not feeling up to
I’m sorry :,)
This is everything
He would fall in love with Azul when he hears his singing voice
But of course in proper Little Mermaid fashion, Eric doesn’t know who said voice belongs to
He goes around the school for days, asking if someone knows someone with “The voice of an angel🥺”
This dude is a hopeless romantic who definitely believes in love at first sight (or song ig)
I think Jade catches on pretty quickly to who he’s talking about
He doesn’t do anything for a while until he decides to tell Floyd, who on the contrary thinks it would be entertaining to very much do something about it
Cue a montage of them elaborately trying to get you to realize that the person you’re looking for is Azul but just narrowly missing
This includes the boat scene
Floyd actually did end up knocking the boat over bc he was bored
When Floyd’s enthusiasm dies he’s just like “Yo the person you were looking for is Azul”
Eric: Finally the love of my life has come to me🥺
Eric is very well versed in the ways of the sea considering he spent a lot of his life on it so he knows plenty about the sea life in Twisted Wonderland or is interested in learning
This means Azul would give him a water breathing potion so he can explore underwater
It takes a lot of convincing to get Azul to come with him since he’s still kind of insecure about his octopus form
But when Eric gives him the puppy dog eyes it’s game over
He’s gushing all over Azul telling him how beautiful and majestic he is
Azul almost inks
He actually does when Eric squeezes the life out of him due to excitement
He just loves his octo bf so much
But he’s still a prince so he’ll spoil Azul with his princely manners
Will always pull out a chair for him, lead him in dancing, sword fight someone in his honor etc.
The tweels think it’s kind of pathetic how head over heels he is for Azul but Azul is just as enamored, just less showy about it
Discounts at the Monstro lounge is a given
There definitely was a time when Eric was knocked into the water and couldn’t get back up so Azul had to dive in to save him
This is super cute but Aladdin has no idea how to deal
He’s dirt poor but he managed to land a partner that’s filthy rich
I mean it wouldn’t be the first time
But because of his upbringing that means that he’s become very perceptive of bad people
He probably warned Kalim before Jamil’s overblot, Kalim refused to believe him though because he was so convinced Jamil would never do anything to hurt him
He understood where he was coming from and wanted to say “Yeah you’re probably right” but he knew it wasn’t true
But he also knew Kalim wouldn’t listen to him so his hands were kind of tied
But blah blah blah Jamil’s overblot happened, Aladdin saved the day fluffy stuff
Kalim loves Abu he just wants to give him a little squeeze
Abu is slippery though so he just feeds him food
Abu likes him a bunch because of this
On days where Kalim wants to take Aladdin for a magic carpet ride he’s like “BRO I GOT ONE TOO””OMG TWINS”
There’s a lot of carpet races because of this
But on a night where Aladdin was feeling particularly romantic he serenaded him with “I can show you the world”
The way that Kalim best shows affection is through material items since that’s something he knows he’s good at
He throws a lot of expensive jewelry and clothes at Aladdin
It’s not like Aladdin doesn’t appreciate it but he doesn’t need those things to be happy
All he needs is Kalim
When he tells him that, Kalim starts crying Part 2
Because of Aladdin’s tendency to swipe things he probably shouldn’t this kind of gets him into trouble a bunch
That is if anyone could catch him
Just like his pal Abu he’s a slippery fellow
Kalim finds it endearing
No hate to The Prince but he has the personality of a thumb
He’s only gotten two scenes in the movie and doesn’t even have an official name
So I’ll just call him Prince ig
But Vil and Prince are kind of the perfect couple ngl
Vil thinks of himself as a Queen and who better for a Queen than a soon to be King?
Prince simps for Vil so hard
Like I don’t know how to verbally express how much
He would die for Vil, he would kill for his Queen, every formal interaction he will get on one knee and kiss Vil’s hand, the power dynamic is kinda 🥴
This just gives me “loyal puppy dog Prince x powerful ‘will kill you if you touch him’ Queen”
Of course Vil is like 😏
Prince treats him like the Queen he knows he is and Vil is obsessed with the never ending attention
He reciprocates through giving him his full attention whenever he can
Even something as small as a peck on the cheek means everything to Prince
With someone as low as a Prince😳
This cannot be possible😳
But oh it is possible and Vil makes sure he knows that
He loves his loyal lover to the stars and back and he makes sure it’s known by always keeping a hand around his waist
It’s less out of protection than it is possessiveness
But it makes Prince SWOON
Any person who dares argue his Queen’s beauty or strength he will fight
He sees this as saving his Queen’s time
If they can’t take him they have no privilege to even try with Vil
this sounds like sebek omfg
Bridal carrying Vil
CRUSTY DISCORD MOD X ANCIENT GREEK HIMBO MY BELOVED
There’s just so much potential here my guys
Even more so if I went by real Ancient Greece that shit was crazy
But this is Disney so I won’t
Hercules knows NOTHING about half the crap that goes on in Twisted Wonderland
“We must sacrifice the finest cattle in honor of the gods””Lol cool let’s play minecraft””What craft is yours?”
I don’t think Idia would have a lot of social anxiety around him after a bit
He’s very knew to everything in Twisted Wonderland, he doesn’t know how society or technology works, he doesn’t know how to dress, etc. so for someone like Idia to take him under his wing he looks up to him as if he was almost a god (only in twisted wonderland ofc he don’t disrespect the pantheon like that)
When Idia tells him of the story of Hades Hercules casually drops the “Oh yeah I know, he’s my uncle”
“….Bitch say sike rn”
Tbh the interactions between your two worlds is very interesting in of itself
I mean it’s obvious twisted wonderland doesn’t have “gods”. Worshipped one’s absolutely but not in the way Earth does
And considering Greek Mythology is a very real thing on Earth but the concept of Hades at least exists in twst means that Greek Mythology exists there too
But they didn’t have ancient Greece
This shit confusing I’ll just stop the existentialism right there
If he tells Idia about his world and origins that’s kind of an existential bend for Idia lol
Like he’s learning that most of the things his dorm has/are involved in was specifically named after an assortment of stories in his partner’s world?
But also we can’t forget the fact that lil ol Idia is deadass dating a DEMIGOD
I don’t think that concept exists in twst but when he explains he like “OOOO BOY😳”
A very muscular man who came through his mirror from a different dimension not only is related to one of the Great Seven but is also the son to a being that is essentially the ruler of their universe????
AND HE CHOSE HIM[Idia]?????
Hercules would use him as a weight while exercising and Idia has his switch out playin Animal Crossing or something
Any time Frisbee is played near them he’s actively shielding Idia
He can’t risk anything after what happened to his (technically) brother Apollo
If you know, you know
This one would be so funny
I’m positive Phillip knows who Maleficent is and her role in his “one true love”’s story
But imagine his surprise when he’s like “The princess is sweet but the dragon fae that’s similar to the person who tried to curse her is kinda😳👀”
He’s a hero who lived long enough to be with the villain
Being from the 14th century he knows just as much about modern things as Malleus does
Meaning Phillip is very suited towards his courting style
Phillip practicing fencing with Sebek or Silver is a must
Phillip desperately wants to see Malleus’ dragon form
It’s not anything he hasn’t seen before and he likes the idea of literally flying into battle with his bf
Phillip knows much about history and arts so Lilia and him get on swell
I think he can play many classical instruments, so he likes to serenade Malleus with a violin or piano
He would most definitely create a rendition of “Once Upon A Dream” for him too
Being a 14th century person who was thrusted to a different dimension in the future, I think he’s really into theatre
Phillip brings Malleus to many plays
Phillip hears from friends Adeuce when dorm leader meetings are held which he relays to Malleus to ensure he’s not left out of important manners
Ballroom dancing together🥺
My 2 am Malleus Draconia thoughts??
Contains fluff and angst
Gn human reader
I want to squeeze malleus' cute cheeks sm!! (The face. Get your mind out the gutter)
He's so pretty and what for?? Istg if I got a cent everytime he's being pretty, I'd buy Jupiter.
Malleus who visits you in ramshackle every night Bc he's worried you'll get lonely
Nighttime walks for dates. He brings little snacks in case you get hungry on your walk
He intertwines your fingers whenever you hold hands Bc he's possessive like a dragon
He gets super jelly when you don't give him enough attention, but doesn't voice it Bc he wants you to be happy.
I can't stop picturing him to be the type to hug you from behind when you least expect it and he just chuckles into his fist and apologizes when you jump.
Since he has a longer lifespan than you, he worries that you might be insecure abt growing old and wrinkly
He uses magic to make himself 'grow old with you' even if it's only in appearance so that you don't get insecure.
Malleus getting into a relationship with you thinking he'll be ready for if anything happens and you end up dying
He thinks it'll be fine. He's seen a lot of humans die. Your death wasn't supposed to be this different.
It was never supposed to hurt this much. But, there he was kneeling before your gravestone with flowers in his and and tears in his eyes
After you died, he was absolutely heartbroken. He couldn't eat or sleep without thinking of you.
Blinking wasn't as easy as every other day, because whenever he closes his eyes, you're all he sees.
Malleus will get into random mental breakdowns when he's alone.
During his outbursts, Lilia puts him to sleep by giving him your old pillow, blanket, clothes or anything with your scent on it. At least he won't destroy the entirety of diasomnia that way

Students learn how to brew potions correctly at Night Raven College, following specific recipes and using various magical ingredients to create their potions, beginning with simple ones and progressing to more advanced ones as their knowledge grows.
And yet, there he was, staring out one of the large classroom windows, his jade eyes aimlessly following the slow dance of burgundy leaves in the autumn breeze. The junior potions class was child's play for someone as skilled and learned as Malleus. So much so that, much to his partner's chagrin, he didn't even bother checking the assignment's requirements.
The fae's cloudy train of thought was interrupted by an awkward cough. "Malleus, dude," he said as he turned to face the source of the voice, his partner Cater Diamond, "I would appreciate some assistance here... Of course, if you don't mind." Cater went on.
He couldn't help but sigh as Diamond gave him a pitiful look. Might as well throw a bone to the dog.
"Diamond, read the text for me."
"R-right, of course!" Says the boy. Cater swallowed and cleared his throat. "We're supposed to create a... Sense-enhancing potion made from dragonfly wings and newt eyes."
That didn't sound right.
"Are you certain?" Malleus asked, his gaze drawn to the list Cater had written on what he assumed was his phone's notes app, to which Cater hurriedly nodded.
Malleus hummed, his gloved hands already grasping the ingredients listed. If he remembered correctly, this was a sense heightening potion, but not one that was appropriate for this class. He wondered if their professor had chosen for them to make such a potion on purpose, or if Cater's autocorrect was just playing tricks on them. Professor Crewel responded with a resounding 'good boy!'. Looking over at the neighboring desk, which happened to be Lilia's, Malleus carefully examined their laid-out ingredients, realizing Cater was correct.
“Curious…” Malleus murmured, a smirk on his lips barely visible. He couldn't help but wonder if they were allowed to keep their potions after class.
“Great Seven, professor Trein needs a stop button!” Grim whined, already munching down on his lunch. Everyone nodded in agreement. It was an unspoken agreement among the small group that history lectures were the most difficult to get through. Interesting to hear about now and then, but horrible to read about all the time, and with the professor's rather monotone tone, a difficult task became impossible. Today was no exception, as Trein appeared to have made it a goal to put as many students to sleep as possible.
The bruise on your cheek from your impromptu nap proved that you were one of the many students who couldn't stay awake. In your defense, the desk seemed like the coziest pillow as Trein's words slowly lulled you to sleep. It was somewhat reassuring to see Ace and Deuce in the same situation. The upcoming finals were expected to bring fantastic results. But, in the meantime, you had plenty of time to make up for one missed class. That is if you would still be around for finals. It was hard to admit, but Night Raven has grown on you. The place itself, the student body, and even the faculty and their tedious lectures. Even Ramshackle Dorm and its ghosts left an impression on you. You would miss the occasional midnight ghost stories told by your local roommates, the last-minute study sessions with Grim, goofing off with Ace and Deuce while you failed miserably at cleaning...
“Yuu? You there?” Ace asked, shaking his hand in front of you. After a few puzzled blinks and a sigh, you grabbed his hand and placed it beside him.
“Yes, Ace, where else could I possibly be?”
“Then you wouldn't possibly mind following me, would you?” You turned around, only to see Lilia giving you a mischievous smile, his hand already extended out to you. Ah, so that’s what Ace wanted. You gave a short nod, taking Lilia's hand in the process, not missing a very confused Grim, who had already finished his lunch. You could only guess why the unexpected meeting, and Lilia was quick to notice your at a loss expression. “Malleus asked for you,” he clarified, walking you outside of the cafeteria, “said he didn’t want to disrupt the mood.” You could hear him chuckle, clearly doubting the prince’s reasoning.
How could you forget about the one person you would truly miss once you returned home? How dearly you would miss his midnight visits, his random but charming remarks regarding gargoyles, his Tamagotchi and how happy he looked while playing, the little fae magic he would show you and only you. You would really miss Tsunotarou.
You soon found yourself outside, in one of the school gardens, Malleus absentmindedly observing the scenery on one of the benches. Even when he was just sitting, he looked breathtaking. The moment he turned towards you, you felt your heart leap. Truly, what a strange phenomenon, feeling so much when he did so little. Lilia was long gone by the time you took a seat next to him, your broad smile reflecting Malleus’ own hidden one, eyes unable to hide their warm shift.
“You kept me waiting, child of man,” he uttered, stare completely devoted to your eyes, the stammer of your lips. His tone was stern, but not angry.
"Geez, I wonder why Tsunotarou..." You rolled your eyes, and Malleus smiled at the nickname. You adored Malleus's smile. It was such a trivial thing that it was even considered normal in a friendship, but you wondered if the butterflies it gave you were also considered normal. “Why did you call me here?” You asked, breaking the momentary silence.
Malleus abruptly avoided eye contact. "I'd like to make a request of you," he started, uncertainty laced in his voice, “you see…”
“I will need all of you to write a detailed report until next week on the potion’s effects.” Crewel’s voice broke the sudden commotion caused by the ringing bell.
To say the least, everyone's – particularly Malleus' – interest was piqued. Potions had never before required a live test, so to say everyone was excited was an understatement. Even Malleus seemed delighted about the extra bit of homework their professor assigned them, despite the fact that it was barely noticeable.
He yet again questioned if they were aware of the potion's true effects. Your image flashed through his mind as he dangled the small ornate bottle Cater chose for theirs as part of his contribution to their task. What an absolute delight it would be to see you under its influence; just thinking about it made him swoon. To think that you, a mere human, could easily haunt the fae's thoughts, keep his mind occupied only on you, and mesmerize him to no end. Now he just needed to ask you.
Shaking the memory away, Malleus found himself transfixed by your awaiting eyes. “I’ll need you to become a guinea pig for me.”
“Let me explain,” he drew closer to you, his thigh barely touching your own, hand gently resting on top of yours, almost engulfing it. You realized just how big it was compared to yours, “professor Crewel assigned my colleagues and I to write a thorough paper on the effectiveness of a certain potion, and I need you, little human.” He resumed, handing you the little bottle. Inside of it, a bright red liquid shined in the pale light. It eerily resembled blood.
“How am I supposed to help you?”
“You just have to consume it and let me observe you.”
“What is it supposed to do?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know?” He chuckled at your pout, you were clearly displeased with the secrecy.
Soon, his lips were on your ear, hands drawing away strands of hair as his breath tickled the shell of your ear. “It’s supposed to make you feel… tremendous bliss,” he whispered in your ear, ending his answer with a soft kiss, a surprised yelp escaping your lips. Whether or not the kiss was intentional was unbeknownst to you. This has always been the case with Malleus. But you couldn't bring yourself to blame him completely; after all, you hadn't bothered to question at all about the nature of your relationship. It would be a lie to pretend the offer didn't pique your interest; on the contrary, it sparked your curiosity. The more you thought about it, the more intrigued you became, your mind soon filled with enticing ideas, ideas that made your uniform feel stuffy and your legs come close. A reaction Malleus watched attentively.
“Then what are we waiting for?” You batted your eyelashes at him. “We can’t have you failing now, can we?” a smirk played on Malleus’ lips as he stood up, taking hold of your hand. Although he was still wearing his gloves, you could still feel his hand’s warmth.
The next thing you knew, you were in Malleus' private chambers, thanks to his magic. It was just as you imagined. Mauve sheets covered his poster bed, a love seat placed at the end of it. In the left corner of the room, a large wooden desk was set, and on it, a singular tall candle lit by emerald flames. Your attention was soon drawn towards the decorative dragon next to the closet.
“Self-portrait?” You teased, making Malleus roll his eyes with a scoff.
“My goodness, aren’t you getting bold now…” He trailed off, his hands messing with his tie, ultimately taking it off. “Sit.” was all you needed to hear, settling yourself at the right edge of his bed.
You didn't notice it the first time, but there was a dark-framed floor mirror next to the other side of the closet. Malleus kneeled in front of you, tie still in his hand before you could ask him about it. It didn't take a genius to figure out what he was after.
"May I? It will help get the best results," he asked gently, green irises catching your gaze. Having the future king of Briar Valley kneel before you and ask if he could blindfold you was an experience you wished to never forget. The way his fingers nervously traced the thin material broke his calm appearance. You nodded and soon, your vision turned black as Malleus secured the tie around your eyes, making the perfect impromptu blindfold. A delicate kiss was placed on both of your closed eyes, making you giggle. You felt him hand you the potion, opening the top for you.
You expected the potion to taste bad based on your previous experiences. The sweet taste of cherries surprised you, and you wondered if Malleus had anything to do with it.
"Do you feel good?" He asked, setting the empty bottle on the nightstand.
You shrugged, still unsure about the aftertaste. To be honest, you didn't notice any difference.
"It's supposed to take a while before it kicks in..." He added, the gentle creaking of the bed telling you, along with his voice, that he was now next to you. “Let’s give it a little push, shall we?”
You gasped as you felt his hands trace the buttons of your blazer, slowly opening them and letting it fall off your shoulders. Your tie soon came undone as Malleus started tracing the buttons of your shirt.
“Which one should I start with…?” He hummed, his finger landing on the first button. Instead of opening it as he did with the blazer, he hooked his finger in slicing through the buttons, watching as the buttons fell down one after another, each one revealing more of your skin, of your chest, of your abdomen to him, as the shirt was soon discarded on the floor along with the blazer.
The sudden exposure to the cold air made you whimper, goosebumps covering your skin almost immediately. Soft pants left your mouth as Malleus barely traced the shape of your breasts before grabbing one of them, giving it a gentle squeeze. Your whimpers only grew in volume, closing your eyes tight behind the blindfold as a tingly sensation made its way to your lower regions.
“We barely even started and you’re already this loud,” he chuckled, snapping against your skin one of the bra straps making you yelp in surprise, “looks like the potion is working,” he said in a lower tone, letting the straps fall off your shoulders.
His lips found your jaw, giving it feather kisses as they went lower down your neck, shoulders, collarbones, and the swell of your chest, hands going behind your back to undo the hook. Every little touch against your skin, every little breath and kiss that accompanied them sent an electrifying sensation through your body. Your skin suddenly felt hot despite the fact that you were almost naked. You moaned as Malleus' trail continued down one of your breasts, his mouth now occupied with one of your nipples while his fingers toyed with the other. All you could do was whine and squirm, enjoying his undivided attention.
His other hand slowly pushed you down on the bed as he stood on top of you, the bed jostling beneath both of you. His lips soon left your nipple, only to admire his handy work. You were panting heavily, hands clenching the sheets as legs came to rest around his thighs. Every curve, every divot, he made sure to deeply ingrain it into his mind.
“Such beautiful untouched skin,” he sighed, hands now tracing your hips and undoing your skirt, adding it to the growing pile on the floor. “It would be a shame to leave it like this…”
As his hands trailed lower and lower, squeezing your inner thigh and relishing in your sweet squeaks, as he urged you to open your legs, his lips found themselves attached to your neck yet again, sucking and biting at the skin, littering it with marks. Each bite and each flick of his tongue made your breath hitch, by now feeling your panties drenched. His right hand went higher and higher, ghosting over the very visible wet patch of your underwear. Without taking it off, thumb soon pulled at your lower lips, making you give a small trembling breath. His hands were everywhere, one to keep you spread and the other softly running along every inch of your folds, all while avoiding the little bundle of nerves, begging for attention, his mouth still occupied with your chest, marking every inch of skin. By then your brain was turning to mush, completely lost in the ecstasy such fleeting touches brought you.
Without warning, his fingers began tracing slow circles on your clit making your poor cunt drool and hand cover your mouth. Almost immediately, Malleus pinned both of your hands above your head, right hand lazily outlining your clit. The little bud was hard, throbbing with your heartbeat so hard that he could feel it against his fingertips.
“Darling how am I supposed to hear you if you cover your mouth?” He mocked, eyes fixated on the way you bit your lower lip so hard it was threatening to spill blood. Another futile attempt at stopping Malleus from getting what he wanted, to which he only shook his head.
Finally, his lips found yours, mouths overlapping desperately, the overwhelming arousal and the potion’s effect making it hard to form a single coherent thought. Malleus’ teeth sank into your bottom lip, nibbling and gently pulling on it, only for his tongue to glide over it into your mouth to meet the tip of yours. It was a sensation overload. Your heart raced at the feeling of his hands on your body, his lips on your own, his erection throbbing against your thigh, of his intoxicatingly sweet scent drowning you.
Malleus was no better. He could feel his resolve dissolve into nothing with each passing second, body and mind completely enamored by you. “You’re the one who drank the potion, and yet,” he broke the kiss, allowing himself to admire your writhing form, “I’m completely under your spell, my love.” He purred, mouth already searching for yours again, the loud smacking of your sloppy kisses filling the room. Not allowing you to become accustomed to the sensation, your breath hitched the moment his hand moved your panties aside, gloved fingers coming into contact with your swollen clit, pussy already making a mess. Was it too much to ask to get fucked?
“Malleus…” You shuddered into the kiss, feeling your frustration build.
Your moans were swallowed as you felt his fingers slowly, inch by inch work open your entrance. The lack of resistance made Malleus smirk against your lips. The moment his fingers filled you up, he stopped moving, opting to instead curl and scissor his fingers, your g-spot just barely out of reach.
“If you’re this tight around my fingers, I can only imagine how you’d feel around my cock.” His lips dipped lower, leaving a line of hot kisses and stopping at your hip bone. The feeling of your walls spasming around his fingers made him feel lightheaded. “Although, if I’m being honest,” he stopped his ministrations, fingers coming out, not before giving your clit a light tap, making you gasp and pout at the feeling of being empty, “I’m not sure you deserve this dick, doll.”
His words left you feeling puzzled, the sound of the bed shifting and the loosening of his hold on your wrists making you sit up. “Malleus?” you called, soon feeling his bare hand grasping your chin, tilting it up. His nails were barely scraping your skin.
“P-please, Malleus…” Maybe it was the potion, or maybe it was the growing heat in your lower regions that compelled you to throw your shame aside, but you couldn't help but succumb to his commands.
“Please what? Use your words, darling.” His grip on your chin tightened.
“Please fuck me, Malleus. I’ll do anything to deserve your dick!” your response was almost immediate, thighs already rubbing together. The way your tone changed in pitch, the way your body ached and your skin burned for him, the constant teasing, it was all too overwhelming.
His hand left your chin, only for it to untie your blindfold. You blinked a few times, adjusting to the light as Malleus left a short kiss on the top of your head.
“You’re so good to me, love.” He praised. It was obvious that no matter your answer, he was going to give in.
With your blindfold off, you could finally see Malleus in all of his glory. The way the light glistened on his eyes, his horns, his slightly flushed cheeks, his swollen lips. You managed to snap out of it, watching him undress.
“I could use some help,” he didn't need to say anything else, your hands already reaching out to his blazer, letting it fall off his shoulders on the ground. With trembling hands, you helped him unbuckle his belt as he worked on his vest, “eager aren’t you?” he teased, laughing at your frown.
Before you could say anything back, his vest and shirt were discarded on the floor, and suddenly you were unable to look him in the eyes. It was as if his body was sculpted by the gods, and based on his lineage, it might have just. He was beautiful. With his belt undone, he let his trousers drop. You could see the outline of his bulge in his boxers, your mind filling in the blanks for you.
“May I?” it was your turn to ask, to which Malleus grabbed your hand, guiding it to the elastic of his boxers, finally taking off the last piece of garment. Malleus sighed as his member was finally free of the confinement of his underwear. He was more on the girthier and the tip was flushed pink, precum already leaking out of it. Your hand wrapped around him, slowly dragging it along his length, not failing to notice the stutter of his hips or the way his abdomen flexed. Malleus hissed, sucking in a breath as you began stroking the tip, smearing translucent precum all over it. By the way the tips of his ears reddened and the way his eyes became fixated on your hand, you could tell it had an effect on him, and you couldn’t deny its effects on you.
“Now, I’m not the one supposed to be pampered here,” Malleus interrupted your movements, settling himself behind you on the bed. That way you could fully see both of your reflections in the mirror.
“You’re so pretty.” you marveled at Malleus' reflection and the way the dim light of the lit candle behind him outlined his body. He only hummed, chin resting comfortably on your right shoulder.
“I might just be, but you, my darling…” He pressed an open-mouth kiss to your neck.
“You’re magnificent.” His hands found your breasts, giving each nipple a pinch and making your back arch.
“Breathtaking.” He exhaled, opting to simply just rip off your panties.
“Absolutely. Mind. Blowing.” Each word was accentuated with a languid stroke to your clit to which your hips jerked, hands finding support on his toned arms.
Holding back the embarrassing moans that left your mouth was a task long forgotten, the words ‘please, please, please’ falling off your lips like a mantra. Teary eyes made contact with his emerald green, making the fae smile. It might have been a wicked pleasure of his, but the way tears threatened to fall at any moment and your adorable pout made it all too hard not to enjoy. His hand was soon replaced by his cock, guiding it to align with your slit.
“You’re so wet,” he mumbled, his mindlessly beginning to rut his hips, grinding the underside of his cock along your folds, “already making a mess…”
“Malleus!” your knees buckled, if it weren’t for his hands holding your hips you would have toppled over by now. Looking in the mirror, you could see what he meant. Your cunt was leaving his length in a milky white wetness, connecting the two of you in sticky webs. It was embarrassingly hot.
The grip Malleus’s hands had on hips became almost bruising, nails digging crescent shapes into your skin. A muffled moan escaped his lips, his cock bottoming out inside of you in one quick motion. Head rolled back, your next few words came out as nothing more than choked sobs. Your nerves were on fire, your eyes closed, tears falling down your face, tremors traversing your body as your walls fluttered around him, making Malleus tense behind you. Eyes fixed on your reflection, Malleus sighed as he adjusted his grip on your hips, pleased with the way your chest heaved and mouth hang agape.
“Feeling good?” He asked as he kissed your tears one by one, rocking his hips at a slow, sensual pace. It allowed you to feel every inch of him and every vein, savoring the delicious friction. You rapidly nodded your head, not trusting your voice.
Without stopping, one of his hands came behind your back, encouraging you to lay on your stomach, ass up high in the air. “I’ll need you to look in the mirror, doll,” he said leaning over you, delicately grabbing your chin, making you face forward, “your feedback would be greatly appreciated.” Oh, how dearly you wished to smack that cocky smirk right off his face, but with the way the new angle allowed him to hit all the right places, all you could do was groan, biting down on your lower lip.
His lips began traveling down your back, not pleased with the difference in love marks between your front and back, his right hand leaving your chin and steadily snaking its way around your body, finding your clit and rubbing on the swollen bud. With a high-pitched moan, you struggled to not let your eyelids shut, the sudden change to an erratic pace making your vision blur.
“How lewd,” Malleus chuckled at your expression pinching your clit, clearly satisfied with your reactions.
Your hips began moving on their own, trying to keep up with the rhythm of Malleus’ hips, the coiling tension in your abdomen about to break.
“Cum for me, doll. I want to see your pretty face.” Malleus moaned in your ear, making you cum hard with a scream of his name as your walls tightened around him. You went limp, your vision going white. The sensation was addicting as if molten lava was flowing through your veins.
He was mesmerized by the way your dripping cunt kept sucking him in, despite just creaming and gushing all over his cock. His movements didn’t stop, hips jerking as he chased his own orgasm. The pleasure was painful at this point, quickly bringing you closer to another release. You almost didn’t want it. Yet you took him in, tears continuously falling at the overstimulation. The way his dick twitched inside of you told you he was close and soon enough, his warm cum painted your walls white, pussy milking him dry as you reached your second orgasm.
“Fuuck…” Malleus exhaled with soft pants, hands holding your waist tight, riding out both of your highs.
By that point, you were tired and sweaty, legs trembling as they struggled to stay up. You closed your eyes, trying to calm down your rapid heartbeat, making yourself comfortable in Malleus’ bed as he went out. With a towel wrapped around his hips, he came back with a warm wet towel and a bottle of cold water. He gave your forehead a fleeting kiss as he made you sit up, handing you the bottle. “Let me clean you up,” he said, hand lightly tapping your thighs for you to spread them. He gently wiped your body, letting a comfortable silence set in between you as you drank your water. After he was done, he placed the towel on the floor with the rest of your clothes and the bottle on the nightstand grabbing a pair of pants for himself and a shirt for you. All dressed up, you snuggled next to him, Malleus pulling the blanket over both of you.
“How are you feeling?” he asked, head resting on top of yours.
The potion’s effect was long gone, leaving you in a drowsy state. “A little woozy,” you replied, rubbing your eyes lazily.
“I’ll be sure to include that in my report.” his answer made you snort, eyes closing as you nestled closer to him, his arms embracing you tightly.
Your relationship was a confusing one, that’s for sure, but that didn’t mean you weren’t glad to offer in any way the fae your assistance. Even in moments like this.
How Twisted wonderland characters react to an s/o who is an artist!
Characters: Malleus, Silver, Sebek, Lilia
Notes: Reader is g/n
Dorms: Savanaclaw, Octavinelle, Scarabia
A/n: I'm finally back! I haven't had any motivation and just writer's block for about a year. But I finally sat down to make some headcanons for twisted wonderland! I want to make one for each dorm, but I'm starting with Diasomnia!
Description: You're an artist and have been wanting to draw your Diasomnia boyfriend! But you only have the confidence to do it when he's asleep..
Malleus had felt your eyes on him for hours now. He simply wanted his child of man asleep in his arms, but you insisted on giving your full attention to that book of yours.
He chuckled at the gasp you let out when he caught your gaze
"Child of man, what are you writing?"
He was most definitely trying to mask his real question, Why in the hell weren't you wrapping your arms around his waist
Malleus sees the way you flush up at his question, now he's even more curious.
He was quick to coax you into showing him your book, whispering:
"It's ok, no need to be embarrassed child of man."
"Dear child of man, I'm certain it's not bad"
"you aren't hiding anything suspicious right, dear?"
Eventually, he gets you to tell him
"Malleus I wasn't writing, I was drawing... you"
Cue flustered fae prince.
Malleus is enamored with your skills! Even if you're still a beginner. He was also flustered that you had so many drawings of him.
Malleus was flattered that you found him so attractive that you filled full sketchbooks of almost nothing but him. Despite being flattered, he would still ask you just why you drew him so much.
"Well, you're just so pretty malleus! I can't help but want to draw you!"
There you go, you've flustered the fae prince once again.
"Child of man I'll excuse your lack of affection just this one time... On the condition, you'll sketch me as I lay on your lap"
Silver is constantly sleeping, so luckily you've got plenty of reference material.
He had taken a liking to the flesh of your thighs, while you had taken a liking to how cute he looked.
You began sketching your boyfriend's face, but as you got more into the artist zone you didn't notice your boyfriend blinking his eyes open.
You screamed bloody murder when you saw silver eyes staring back at you.
"Sevens! Silver when did you wake up?"
Silver took the hand holding your book into his, kissing your knuckles.
" I woke up when I realized you weren't playing with my hair anymore. Why are you so red?"
Silver saw your frozen form and took a look at the sketchbook just above his head
"Is that.. me?"
You've spread your redness to your silver boyfriend.
"Yeah.. I think you look so pretty! but I only have the confidence to draw you when you're asleep.."
Silver looked through the rest of the book only to see sketch after sketch of him,
He was flustered and amazed at the same time, He thought it was cute you couldn't help yourself but sketch him, and he thought they looked amazing! He couldn't help but see how you saw him.
"Y/N you don't ever have to be embarrassed to draw me. You can do it anytime... even if I'm awake."
To be honest, you'll rarely ever find a sleeping Sebek, much less find one sleeping long enough to use him as reference material.
So when you do find a sleeping Sebek you take your chance.
You were sketching away sitting across from a napping Sebek on the couch.
Unlike everyone else, Sebek has no symbolism of privacy.
"Hmm, what are you doing human?"
Sebek had snatched your precious book out of your hands.
"Gah! Sebek! Give it back!"
The moment Sebek's eyes landed on the subject of your artistic abilities his face bloomed red.
Not just his face,
Everywhere was red.
Sebek was shook
He's never thought about how good he looked until he saw your sketches.
Sebek's confidence has risen by %500
You take his hesitance as a sign to close your ears, you don't want to go deaf, do you?
"W-what are you doing hurry up and take your b-book back...Human!"
Surprisingly, Sebek doesn't start his usual routine of using that loud voice of his, and instead was handing the book back to you!
" N-no need to go sneaking around! F-from now on just ask when you want to draw me human.."
Lilia has known for a while that you like to sketch him while he's sleeping. He finds it quite cute that you adore him so much.
However he's a little sad you haven't outright asked him to model for your collection, or that you haven't even shown him a single one.
So he feigned sleeping to lure you out to catch you in the act.
You were finishing up the drawing as Lillia lay next to you in bed.
"Oh my, what's that you're doing?"
Just wow. You've made him look amazing! Lillia just like everyone else adores your drawings,
And while he doesn't want to admit it, he's quite flustered by them.
If only you weren't so red you would notice his slightly red ears..
Lilia encourages you to start drawing from imagination!
He wants to know just what pretty things you'll create if you were to treat him like an OC!
Just Don't ask him how he knows that term.
"Oh y/n, if you wanted to admire me so badly all you had to do was ask!"
haha, this is my first Twisted Wonderland, Hc. As you can probably tell, Malleus and Silver are some of my faves! Expect to see savanaclaw's headcanons next!
Cottagecore!Yuu x DarkFae!Malleus
a/n: not so good not so bad writing, (I'm still new to this lol) i just had this thought of writing this on that one post i saw about "someone should write Cottagecore Yuu x Dark academia Malleus (??) "
whoever you are thank you for that idea, please do forgive me for forgetting your username and i hope this fic come across you 😇🙏
Malleus, a popular name to mortals for he is known to be the next heir of the throne of the kingdom of Thorn Valley,
everyone in the neighboring kingdom of thorn valley (Ramshacklerion) feared Malleus for who knows what would he do once he succeed the throne, he might even betray the other kingdoms near the Thorn Valley just to get more power as Faes are known for being greedy on power and possessive of their treasures
because of this fear, the king of Ramshacklerion invited Malleus (for the first time) to a grand ball and even to let him stay at his castle for weeks just to earn his favor so his kingdom won't get ambushed if Malleus ever get a dark thought about overruling every kingdom just to make the Thorn Valley bigger,
Malleus is aware of this and thought its really amusing how these mortals think he would do such thing, yes, he did love the fact that he is invited to a party not that he ever gets to be invited often, but he did not love the fact it was just to earn his favor
he doesn't even care to go ruling other people's kingdom nor even want the powers and riches that's promised to it, nonetheless it would be also tiring just thinking he would had to keep such big land as that
he isn't that interested in the throne or even succeeding it
he don't want a big kingdom to rule
he don't want a big castle filled with treasures
he wants something else...
a companion to talk to
yes, Lilia and his other attendants are there for him and he does appreciate it
but he wanted more than a servant serving a master kind of relationship
he wants to experience the something what mortals exchange to each other, affection, warmth, happiness
or even love
he always have been jealous of everyone who share their love and affection to their significant other or their friend
he always read books about human intimacy back home or even sometimes sees it when he observes humans
he wants to feel the same thing humans do to people they love,
maybe someday he would experience it to someone who is willing to love him for who he is.
despite the name, Malleus thought the kingdom is pretty neat and peaceful itself
the kingdom is bright and blooming with colors and flowers unlike the Thorn Valley's dark atmosphere
it almost made his retairners sick of how bright and cheery this kingdom is
though he didn't mind to be in somewhere new rather than staying at his beloved big rotting villa
Malleus enjoys the half of his stay at the castle with his attendants
but only half
most of the servants of the castle avoids him and his attendants, they're not even trying to make eye contact nor look at them at their faces but just to bow down at them with their heads lower to the knee whenever they came across them
the king of this castle is no good either
everytime the king himself remembers that Malleus is staying in his castle, he would bother Malleus about non-sensical things including their ties with the Thorn Valley.
not only that, Malleus would get called over at his office many times to discuss about Malleus's stay at the castle and how is his experience
oh how would he love just to list everything thats on his mind of what he thinks and hate about this castle
he hates how everyone seems to have their head down on whenever they walk towards him or pass by him
he hates how the king himself is shady and bothers him about the kingdom stuff he isn't even interested in
he hates how he is forced to be with his retainers all the time so he wouldn't be in danger because of assassins and other malicious person that's trying to threaten his life
Then, Malleus had enough.
everything is too much
the king himself is too much too he almost wished he didn't accept his invitation.
thus this afternoon he snuck out of the palace leaving alone without his guards (and yes they did all panick except for Lilia who let Malleus have fun on his own because he know he can defend himself)
Malleus doesn't have anywhere to go and since he don't want to go around scaring the humans on the capital or the town's square of the kingdom
so he planned to just take walk and a breath on a nearby small forest behind the outskirts and come back to the castle after he's satisfied.
it was kind of overwhelming for him to stray in the forest just to leave the castle for a walk, there might be even dangerous animals or people around the forest but it's not like he can't fend for himself
the soft blowing of the fresh air and the rustling of the tree branches calmed his nerves as he continued to walk on the sturdy brown ground of the forest
it did not take him long to step on a grassy path and see a smoke coming behind from the trees
'did someone set something on fire?'
curious, he walked further to see where the smoke is coming from
it was from a chimney of a small old looking cottage on a big open grassy hill and behind it is a big flower field of yellow tulips and dandelions
his eyesight noticed that the cottage was decorated with variation of flowers and plants and has a cute stone path leading to its door that has crow carved into it and a mini trapdoor a perfect fit for an entrance for a pet cat or something small
'someone lives here?'
well he is not that surprised since the outskirts isn't that far from here but still, this looks like a secluded quite area, is it normal for humans to live in such places like this?
it piqued his interest how could a human live in such almost introverted state like how he is quite raised that way too
he walked towards the cottage and peeked to the window
the cottage was small from the outside but it inside seems like a stable place to stay in (for a human of course)
as you enter the door it was already the kitchen and there was two chairs tucked on a round red table that has white spots on it, near is a fireplace that seemed to be also a cooking stove when there is a pot of soup being heated with fire on it, behind the chairs there were other two doors probably leading to the bathroom and the bedroom of the person living in here
'so this was where the smoke was coming from....'
for some reason, up close the smoke smells like a great dish you would eat on a winter night to warm yourself and less of the smell of burning charcoal and wood.
he stared gently as how he would imagine himself living in a place like this
he would be too tall to even enter the entrance of it and probably would bump his head everytime he does.
it made him nod in agreement
his pointed ears perked up as he heard a laughter from a voice on the backyard of cottage
that...was a very cheerful laugh
he stood from his bending position and walked towards a wooden rack of potted plants to hide himself yet get a good peek of the person chuckling to themself
on his sight there was
a big cloth with red and white squares was settled on the green glossy grass near a tended garden of plants and crops, the picnic basket and a tea set sitting on it with almost half eaten sandwich and open empty can of tuna
and not much to his surprise
a person laying down on the grass, facing the sunset together with the flower field also Infront but far from them swaying on the rhythm of the wind as they chuckled while holding a yawning gray cat,
the scene itself felt so peaceful to watch, Malleus can't take his eyes off it
the cat broke free from the owners hold and started ruffling its body
"i don't think what i said was very funny henchman!!"
it's small mouth opened and spoke
Malleus was surprised, not because the cat spoke since he had read books about animals or familiars that can speak before, but how could a simple human, a comonner even obtain such thing?
"you are a very funny cat Grim, everyone thinks that you are my familiar yet you are treating me like I'm the henchman here!!" the person fake pouted as they cross their arms in a sudden
"Hmph!! henchmen like you shouldn't be complaining because I, the greatest Grim agreed to be your housemate!" Grim held his head high, puts his paws on his waist and pose proudly
"do you mean pet?" the person retorted sarcastically as they put their arms on the back of their head to act as a pillow
"WHAT WAS THAT!?" Grim hisses at the relaxed person
Malleus seemed to be so amused to the both squabbling out he giggled
how interesting... not often does he laugh at these type of things...
"and stop calling me henchman, i have a name you know?" the person said sternly
Malleus was so curious about the person's personality he didn't notice his hands moving a flower pot to the edge of the rack just to satisfy his curiosity
the breaking sound of a pot caught the attention of the two on the backyard to turn their heads towards the plant rack.
panicking, Malleus hid himself on a neabry tree that is big enough to hide his tall figure
the two ran up to see what or who dropped the flower they have been taking care of
"Oh no my black petunias!!" the person looks so disgruntled seeing their treasured flower dropped down on the ground with its broken pot and scattered soil
"oh, its that black flowers you really like." Grim said as he stopped walking to the scene of the broken flower pot
"meh it doesn't even fit with the rest of the colorful flowers since its dark so its not really a big deal Yuu," Grim muttered carelessly looking away from Yuu since he doesn't really want to see their sad face
"still, no matter what it looks like its still a flower!! just like how everyone could be a different race they are still a person" Yuu protested back
Malleus eyes widened at the statement the human just said
could this person be.... the one who understands him?
hell, be friends with him even?
well everyone ought to learn the way of what they just said
'even though i am a successor of the throne of long evil rulers doesn't i am evil and power hungry like them too'
he thought to himself
still dejected, Yuu kneeled and started to pick up the broken piece by piece of the pot and soil to uncover to flower beautiful black flower
"mustve been caught by the wind, this is why i told you to never put em on near the end of the rack Yuu!!" the cat muttered irritably as he realized its one of the flowers also HE took care of just to plop down on the floor
he huffed and averted his eyes again just notice the shadowy figure peeking on the neabry tree
"but the wind isn't even that strong how could it-" Yuu's attention that was locked on the flower turned to Grim who was hissing on the nearby tree
Yuu stood up and turned their head where Grim's hissing is pointed at
there they could see a tall shadowy figure peeking at them ominously
it made Yuu shiver to drop the broken pieces of the flower pot but not enough to make them turn and run for their lives
Yuu focused on their breathing, they inhaled and exhaled to calm themself
"um... hello? is someone there?" Yuu asked with a cautious voice, the shade of the tree is so good at hiding the person's body and since he is tall the branches are for his face
For a minute, Yuu thought they were hallucinating until decided Malleus to move a little to inform them that he is real and he is hiding from them
"I know you're there, don't be afraid." Yuu asked with a calm tone to the stranger
"I am not afraid..." Malleus deep voice made Yuu jump a little but at the same time it was very astonishing to hear
"then come out" Yuu asked amusingly to the person, interested on who they might be
"then you'll be afraid" Malleus replied, even if that human made a wise statement that doesn't they won't be frightened of who he is
"no I won't" Yuu insisted beaming a smile at him
Malleus moved out of the shade of the dark oak so the ray of the sunset would light up his face so the human could see him properly
Yuu walked back in awe, he was beautiful.... no, more than beautiful he was.... ethereal. the gleam of the sunset made his pale skin looks like he is glowing with beauty, his green forest eyes shined like the freshly dew of the green leaves in spring as it stared back to their own, his shiny dark hair flowed with wind that blowed to show off his elegance more, he looked like he straight came out from a fairytale
Yuu continued to stare at the breath-taking beauty of the stranger not noticing his anticipating reaction on the stare they were giving
"o-oh i didn't mean to make you uncomfortable" Yuu waved both of their hands while being flustered
"its just that um... you're s-so pretty" Yuu fiddled with their hands still doesn't have an idea how to talk properly to the stranger because of being stunned from his beauty
Yuu met a lot of beautiful people during their stay on this kingdom but not as much as this guy.
Malleus tilted his head in confusion for this is not a normal reaction of humans that met him
Malleus was so distraught, this is not the expression he expected from this person. do this person don't know who he is?
"do you... not know me?" he questioned the other ambiguously of the thought this person not knowing their Kingdom's guest
"am i supposed to?" Yuu answered with confusion
Malleus put a hand to cover his mouth to hide his amused smile
this action made Yuu nervous, did they mess up? did Yuu actually supposed to know who he is?
"i guess i can't blame you since you live in such secluded area but... you do really not know who i am?" Malleus asked again this time, smirking with curiousity
"uh... no?" This is making Yuu more nervous for some reason that smirk on his beautiful face looks really smug and mischievous
"well i see." Malleus finished it off with a giggle that made Yuu's face heat up in silence, that smile looks really pure on his face
is he perhaps a knight? a merchant? maybe a noble?
Yuu's thoughts filled with questions of who he this strange yet beautiful guy is
the other two continued to stand silently in awkwardness as Grim sniffed the air between them, mmm smells good... the soup Yuu is cooking is probably about to be done now right?
"Yuu, our soup is--" Grim stated as it hit Yuu to interrupt the cat
"OH RIGHT THE SOUP!!" Yuu yelled with shock as they shove their hand to their pocket to unlock the front door
"Yuu, the flower--" Grim reminded as Yuu released a "Ah!" noticing the broken flower pot
"why did you even lock the front door?" Grim irritably asked as he rolls his eyes
"because our backdoor isn't, Grim." Yuu, annoyingly retorted back to the talking cat
they were such a mess it's embarassing, they didn't know what to do first.
Malleus laughed as he flicked his wrist, sparkles of light circled the flower pot as it put back the cracks to pieces, the pot magically floated and was placed properly to the pot rack again, thus the once was broken flower pot is now fixed and back at its place
while this happened, Yuu and Grim watched in shock speechlessly
Yuu is used to seeing people using magic but not magic that can fix things like this
"A-are you a perhaps a sorcerer or even a wizard!?" Yuu stuttered with excitement as if its the first time they ever seen magic like a kid
well they are not wrong Malleus is one of the strongest sorcerers out there but he doesn't want to reveal that to this clueless human,
"Yes but i could only do simple things like this." Malleus gave a half hearted answer for this is a lie, it'll took normal sorcerers years to master that kind of spell but for him it only took him weeks
"and aren't you supposed to be worried about the food you're cooking?" Malleus asked whilst the human shuddered of remembering what they left on their small home
"ah!! again!! dammit where is that key...." while they fumble again on their pockets an idea struck their pretty little head
"Grim... dont you think that's alot of soup to eat?"
"Huh? of course!! after all I'm gonna back for secon-- MMMPH!!" Yuu covered Grims mouth with their palm as they pick up the cat
"w-well if our wizard friend here dont mind... can i invite you over for dinner? just as thank you for fixing our flower pot..." Yuu embarrassedly requested while Grim struggled on their hold to muffle a scream "No he can't" at Yuu, but their hand just wont budge on his mouth
"are you... inviting me? to have dinner in your house?" Malleus asked wide eyed with how bold this human is
"do you not want to?" Yuu fidgety, lowered their head already feeling the rejection of the beautiful stranger
"very well child of man, i accept your invitation" he beamed at Yuu
"child of man, thats... a weird nickname i do have a name though, its Yuu but feel free to call me that and-" the door creaked open as Yuu spoke and Grim broke free of their hold and ran inside the house
"please do come in" Yuu politely welcomed Malleus into their house as they both enter
another a/n note: i do not know what i was doing but i did it :'D (yep this was too long lmao i hope you enjoyed it)
Yuu: *Drags a confused Malleus to an art museum*
Yuu: Excuse me! I'm here to donate a masterpiece!
Its a rainy night at the Ramshackle dorm and you're struggling to sleep. You breathe out a silent sigh as you sit up, thinking of what to do...
You eventually come to the decision of taking a night time stroll, hoping that maybe going out for a while will help clear your head a bit. After all, the past few months have been very busy, especially with all of the dorm leaders (and vice dorm leader Jamil) coming to a dangerous and terrifying overblot.
You carefully get up from bed, trying your best to not wake up Grim who's made himself comfortable in the covers. You cant help but look at how cute the small monster is as he snores a bit, shifting to take place in the center of the bed like a human world cat would do.
You prepare yourself to be heading out of the dorm, but just before you can open the doors...
"Eh? Where are you going?"
"Don't you see how late it is?"
"You arent seriously going out this late, are you?"
Asked a trio of familiar ghosts, a small hint of concern in their voices. You apologize for possibly waking them up, if they even sleep, as you explain the situation.
"A night time stroll?..."
"Hm... Just remember to be careful"
"You better not be coming back too late!"
You do your best to reassure the three of them that you'll be fine and wont take long. Once they've gone, you open the doors and step out, taking a breath as you're greeted the smell of rain...
As you pull out and open a small umbrella you managed to afford from Sam's shop, you start to walk around the place, letting your mind run lose for a bit.
Your mind starts to think of how you've been spending your time at Night Raven College and about how, while the overblots are scary, you've been enjoying your time here. You've been enjoying spending time with Ace, Deuce, Jack, all of the friends you've made.
But then your mind starts to travel a bit further...
What's going to happen when you have to finally say goodbye? Did anyone notice you were missing at home? When its time to go back, does this mean it's "goodbye" forever? Will anyone here miss you when you leave? Will they remember you?
Before it can get any further, you're stopped by the feeling of bumping into a broad chest.
"Ah, my apologi-" A familiar pair of bright green eyes widen a bit, a touch of worry and concern in them, as the widely feared dorm leader of Diasomnia bends down a bit to look at you more closely as a gentle hand holds one of yours. "-Oh dear... Please didn't cry, I don't mean to frighten you..."
You hadn't even noticed you had tears running down your face, using your free hand to wipe them away as you apologize for making Tsunotaro think he scared you... Or at least Tsunotaro is the name you knew him as...
"Then if I didn't scare you... Whatever is the matter?..."
You are unsure of how to express your thoughts into words to him... You decide to just tell him that you've been thinking a bit too much...
"Hm... The mind is a rather complex thing, I'm afraid... Hiding away the negative thoughts that come in the day with distractions, only to have them come back in the evening..." His soft tone gives you a sense of comfort as one of his hands gently wipe your tears for you.
"... Perhaps, if I'm not intruding... We can enjoy the rain together for a moment..."
You think about the offer for a moment before agreeing to it, after all, there isnt really much else to help keep your mind off of it... Although you explain that you cant stay too long.
"I understand, it's just for a moment..."
The tall horned man gives you a warm smile as he offers you a seat next to him as you shyly take the offer, the small pitter patter of the rain being heard from all sides.
"... You know... Despite our limited time together, I enjoy the few moments we can spend together..."
You agree with him as you unintentionally lean on him a bit, the comfort of the soft rain, the fireflies flying around and Tsunotaro's warmth making you feel at ease.
"Hm?... Getting comfortable, I see?" A soft chuckle escapes his lips. "Not to worry, I don't mind... You're free to get as comfortable as you like, I can even return you to your dorm should you fall asleep..."
You thank him for the offer, but say that you're capable of staying awake.
"Well, if you insist... This sort of brings me back to how gargoyles are said to be protectors of the buildings they reside on, warding off evil spirits and demons with their powerful aura and cold gaze... I can be your protector, should it come to it..."
Tsunotaro's soft rambling along with the fireflies and rain bring you closer to sleep, a small yawn escaping from your lips. He seems to have noticed.
"Ah?... You're feeling tired already?... If that's the case, then perhaps we should get you back to Ramshackle, it's rather late after all..."
You insist that you'll be fine, trying to get up anyway, however, you seem to slip but before you can hit the ground you're lifted by a pair of strong arms.
"Oh dear... Please be more careful, prefect..."
You feel a warm blush spread across your own cheeks as you rest your head on his chest as he carries you. You hear a soft yet amused chuckle from him.
"And you said you could stay awake... But now's not the time for that, it's time to take you back..."
You say that you'll be fine walking and that he can put you down.
"Hm... I'm afraid I dont think so... You almost fell trying to get up and I dont want to risk you possibly getting hurt... I'll carry you back myself..."
You think for a moment before sighing, reluctantly accepting being carried back to Ramshackle.
Tsunotaro gently holds you close as you grow closer and closer to sleep, his warmth and comfort making you feel as if sinking to subconsciousness. By the time he's made it to Ramshackle, you've already fallen into a peaceful sleep in his arms.
"Oh dear... It's a shame I couldn't talk with them more... But then again, the prefect has a lot of things put on them everyday... I can only imagine what goes on in that brilliant mind of theirs..."
He brushes a few strands of hair from your face as he lays a soft kiss on your forehead, a small smile on his face before opening the doors to Ramshackle. The ghosts would've rushed out by now, but they seem to stop for a moment, watching him gently set you down on the couch.
"Is that... M-Malleus Draconia?"
"What's he doing here?"
"He better not have done something to the prefect"
They quietly chatter amongst themselves, the fae doesn't seem to notice or care at all as he bids you one last farewell before leaving.
