Lil tomco fic idea: Tom likes the smell of Marco's hair, and will randomly start sniffing his hair sometimes.(Another idea I had is something you mentioned in a previous fic, Tom holding on to Marco like a koala.
Awwwww! This was so so so sweet! I had to write a little drabble for it! Sorry it’s kind of short, it was just a cute little scene! But I hope you enjoy it! I really had a fun time with this one!
It’s been a while since I did feral Tom, so I played off of that idea! How animals use smell to identify people. I hope you like it!
Everything was blurry, how it normally was when Tom was half asleep. Something warm had wrapped around him and caused him to wake a tiny bit. It wasn’t a bad thing. It was warm and holding him and it was nice. Tom rolled around and saw a little bit of a figure holding him. Before reacting he nuzzled closer and sniffed the soft puff soon to be identified as hair. As soon as the scent clicked Tom grinned and buried himself in the hug. It was Marco! Marco was there for him, and Tom could recognize him.
“I didn’t mean to wake you.” Marco giggled. Tom yawned and shook his head.
“To be honest, I’m still sort of asleep.” He mumbled. Marco giggled and held Tom closer. Tom sniffed Marco’s hoodie and felt safe. It was so familiar, it put him at ease. No matter where he was, that smell would always mean he was home.
Tom wrapped his arms and legs around the human so he was latched onto him. Marco laughed lightly and Tom purred. “What are you, a koala?” Marco teased. Tom just yawned and nodded, gripping onto Marco more securely.
“Do you have to go?” Tom asked, biting his lip. Marco nodded and gave the demon another hug. “Why can’t you stay?” Tom mumbled, but he already knew the answer. Marco pulled back and smiled a little.
“I’ll only be away two weeks.” He promised. “My abuela is old and doesn’t have any company.” Marco explained. Tom nodded. “You gonna watch the house while we’re gone? Feed the pups and water the plants?” Marco asked. Tom nodded and his ears perked up. “Good demon.” He teased.
“Marco, come on.” Tom blushed at the joke and Marco giggled. Tom’s face then fell a little bit. “I’m really gonna miss you.” He told the human. Marco frowned and gave Tom a kiss on the head. When he was close, Tom buried his face in Marco’s hoodie and took in his scent. He felt like his home was leaving. Marco pulled away and took his hoodie off, handing it to Tom.
“Watch this while I’m gone.” Marco winked. Tom took the piece of clothing in his hands and hugged it close.
Two weeks later Marco opened the door and his whole family piled in with luggage, their flight was delayed so they made it home late at night. “Tom! We’re home! Did you take care of the house?” Marco called. When there was no response Marco went upstairs. He opened the door to his room and smiled.
Tom was curled up on the bed, wrapped in a big blanket, and snuggling Marco’s hoodie. He had it held tight and secure in his arms as he slept soundly. Marco smiled warmly and went over to sit down next to the sleeping demon. “Hey, Tommy?” Marco whispered gently. Tom’s eyes fluttered open and he looked at Marco confused. He sat up and sniffed him, as soon as the scent clicked his face lit up.
“Marco!” Tom exclaimed, and tackled him in a hug. “I missed you!” He giggled. Marco nodded and gave the demon a kiss.
“I missed you too. Sorry for waking you up, but I had to see you.” Marco smiled and covered Tom’s face with kisses. “Thanks for watching the house for us.” He bopped Tom’s nose. “My brave little soldier.” He sighed. Tom blushed and held onto the hoodie. As soon as he realized that it was still in his arms, he held it out.
“Oh, you can have this back… I made sure to take good care of it for you.” Tom beamed. Marco smiled and took the hoodie. He held it for a moment before handing it back.
“You can keep this one if you want. I have like… five.” Marco assured. Tom shook his head and stole a kiss from the human.
“Save it for next time you go away… but I don’t need it anymore… for now at least.” Tom assured. He then pulled Marco close and nuzzled his face. “I have the whole you!”
