Hey! So kind of a sad request, you can ignore this if you want.😅So, I don't have anywhere to go for the holidays this year... I dont really have family that I can spend it with, and my onofficially adoptive family didn't invite me to Thanksgiving or anything, and i doubt theyll invite me to Christmas... so yeah. So I just was hoping to request how the OM! Boys would react to that? Like- if Diavolo was planning to send Mc back up to the human world so they could spend the holidays with family- but Mc is too embarrassed to say anything- or something like that. But when they're asked what they're doing for the holidays back in the human world- they kind of reveal that they don't have anywhere to go. I'm just stuck thinking about how the boys would react to that. Tysm! Happy holidays!

“it’s so cool that you can go up the human realm to spend time with your family for christmas,” levi says, blissfully unaware of the effect his words are having on you. “i think the holidays should always be spent with the people you love.”
“yeah,” you say, kind of mutely. when diavolo had not only offered, but practically forced you to leave for the holidays in an attempt to let you be with your family, you’d only felt dread. you haven’t spent the holidays with your loved ones in a long time and you had hoped this year would be different. however, you didn’t really want to intrude on the brothers or the angels, and explaining your complicated home life wasn’t something you were super keen on doing either.
“what are we doing this year?” mammon asks from the couch, directing the question toward lucifer.
“i believe we’re volunteering at the soup kitchen this year, then going to lord diavolo’s for a meal like we do every year.”
“i wish mc could do it with us,” asmo whines, and your heart warms.
“hey, mc should spend time with their loved ones too,” satan reprimands, and you swallow.
“i wish i could spend time with you guys.”
“what are you doing?” belphie asks.
“and what kind of food will you be eating?” beel adds.
everyone looks to you, and you freeze like a deer in headlights. the silence stretches.
“mc?” satan prompts, and you look down.
“um, i’m not sure,” you say carefully.
“you don’t have any traditions or anything?” mammon asks. damn them for being so nosy!
“none? at all?” lucifer asks, and you snap.
“look, i don’t really want to talk about it, okay?”
silence falls over the room for a long moment.
“mc,” belphie begins, “you, uh, don’t seem super excited to go see your family.”
“belphie!” satan hisses.
“no, he’s right,” you say. “and that’s because i’m not going to. i don’t spend the holidays with them. haven't in a long time.”
“seriously? why didn’t you say anything?” mammon asks, and you grimace.
“i didn’t want to make you guys pity me. it’s embarrassing.”
“that’s dumb!” levi argues. “we wouldn’t pity you! you should just stay with us!”
“see!” you exclaim, semi-irrationally. “you just invited me out of pity! and i didn’t want that to happen, didn’t want to intrude on your holidays.”
“mc.” lucifer’s voice is commanding, authoritative. “don’t even insinuate you’re a burden to us. we want you to be here with us. none of us wanted you to go up to the human realm, we just obviously weren’t going to say that to your face and make you feel bad about spending time with your family. to say otherwise is insulting.”
“i’m sorry.” your clench your hands into fists.
“it’s okay,” asmo soothes. “we’re sorry too, that we’ve been talking about this, so unaware of your feelings on the matter. but please, stay down here with us. we always have more fun when you’re around anyway.”
“are you sure?” you ask, looking around the room, and everyone nods.
“absolutely sure,” lucifer says.
“when i said holidays are to be spent with your loved ones,” levi says, “i meant you too.”
“yeah,” beel nods. “we love you, mc. and while i’m sorry you’re unable to be with your family, we’d be honored if you could be with us.”
“i love you guys too,” you say, blinking rapidly. “i’m sorry i wasn’t honest.”
asmo leans over, wrapping you into a hug. “you don’t have to be honest about stuff like that, not if you don’t want to. it’s personal. but know that when stuff like this comes up, we’ll do everything in our power to help out, to make you feel better.”
“thank you,” you say, throat thick. in an instant, you’re wrapped in an almost-stuffy group hug, surrounded by those who truly love and care for you, and those you truly love and care for right back.

you rest against the couch, on the edge of sleep. you’re content and warm, a plush blanket in your lap and a lively fire in front of you. though you’re not looking at the window, you know snow’s falling outside in picturesque flakes. you can hear the boys talking around you, their tones low and melodious.
“do you think mc’s asleep?” mammon asks suddenly, and they all fall quiet. you don’t bother to open your eyes, giving no indication of your current semi-aware state.
“that’s so cute,” asmo says, and you hear a camera shutter clicking. a moment passes with some rustling then you feel another blanket being settled onto your lap, pulled up around your shoulders.
their quiet care strikes you. you’d never thought you’d feel safe enough in the devildom to sleep, let alone in front of all of them, so vulnerable and exposed. but now, it feels so natural and you don’t even hesitate for a second. they truly are the most wonderful creatures, demons or not.
“i’ll add a few more logs to the fire,” beel says, and a second later, more heat fills the room, only sending you further into dreamland. their conversation picks up once more, and you finally fall completely asleep, happy and warm and feeling safer and more cared for than ever.

Just thinking about how terrifying self-aware Obey me is.
Don’t get me wrong the characters can be really wholesome like Mammon is a shy baby who loves your praises, Belphegor can be really possessive, and the angels can get really protective but you see, demons are still demons at the end of the day.
If they become self-aware in later chapters (say chapter 20 and up) and then you’re lucky you’ll only encounter a few problems. Lucifer will find it amusing that from being feared humans are now just making stories and dating games based on their names. Satan will most likely explain it being a scientific phenomena (because he’s smart like that) but will ask you tons of questions about how they are in that world and you in a different one.
Other characters like Mammon and Belphegor will likely question the trust that was built between the two of you because as far as they know MC is a human that was handpicked by Lord Diavolo and was thrown in Devildom and not someone from a different universe.
If they become self-aware in earlier chapters, well, run because no one can save you. As far as we know the earlier chapters run with MC trying to gain trust of the brothers right? Well, how can they trust you now that they know you are from a different universe and that the MC with them is just a program? Leviathan will likely be in charge of keeping an eye on you why? Because it takes a player to know a player. Simeon and Luke can help you but the thing is that they are on the neutral side until you get to the chapter where you protected Luke.
What about Belphegor? Don’t worry about Belphegor. As long as he doesn’t get the wind about you in a different plane and then you are safe. Characters like Solomon might get drunk with power. He is after all, a king who made pact with 72 demons (Ars Goetia).
Imagine if they became self-aware and it was also them being a yandere. One advice if that happened: Sleep with one eye open and ears actively listening because Diavolo can just order Barbatos to open a portal to connect to your timeline and universe and just snatch you.
