six of crows on valentines day headcannons please???
here you go! i made this modern for my modern dregs tag
wylan and jesper, sticking to the headcanon they’re adventurous, spend the day exploring more places for wylan to take pictures of, but he mostly ends up taking candid photos of jesper. he gifts jesper a deck of cards, but he’s painted something personal on each, an excuse to both ruin the deck and remind jesper of “52 reasons why i love you”. (jesper ends up carrying these with him at all times and when he’s itching to gamble he pulls those cards out instead) jesper’s gift is a full homemade dinner at his place, the whole place decorated in candles and string lights. jesper keeps making food puns as they eat and they can’t stop laughing the whole night.
matthias goes all out and buys nina stuffed animals and sweets and breaks into her car to scatter rose petals across her seats. nina buys them matching sweaters, the ugly ones he loves but she despises, and she makes him personalized coupons “for one kiss” and “one massage” etc etc. he insists on taking her some place fancy, he makes reservations at a flashy restaurant. nina dresses up in a red dress with high side splits and heart shaped earrings. she looks like valentines day should be all about her in that outfit. they order dessert first because nina catches sight of the cake menu and can’t stop thinking about it.
inej and kaz have pizza and bingewatch, neither really caring for the holiday. they’re always the type to agree on a budget beforehand so they’re on the same page about gifts (something nina and matthias never are. one goes extravagant, the other goes crafty) inej gets him a flower arrangement and he’s so taken aback by it, he’s an awkward mess, dropping the new throwing knives he bought her. “looks like i need to teach you how to handle them.” they share popcorn and their hands occasionally brush against each other’s in the bowl and they both smile because kaz is totally doing it on purpose, testing himself. and after their shows she asks him to show her card tricks.
also nina set kuwei up with a guy from her class. it’s their first date, they talk about science. the guy is actually an artist and offers kuwei advice in how to improve his own doodles. they hit it off. by the end of the night they agree on a second date.
