Dracul Mihawk is like…the most serious stone-cold mf to roam the seas but I can’t shake this idea/hc of mine that he’s so down-to-earth and unfazed by literally everything that when Zoro and Perona went to live in the Gloomy Kingdom during 3D2Y, they discovered that he’s just weird. Like, not bad weird. But just…he’s so used to just doing things on his own that even though two other people are now in his castle his “by-myself” habits just really show.
Like, Zoro wakes up super early and expects to be trained but Mihawk slept in until like 1pm and when Zoro gets angry about it he’s just like “I train at night”
Perona is out in the halls and stumbles upon Mihawk in boxers and nothing else and he’s hauling laundry down and he just looks at her and says “Tuesday is laundry day”
After a rigorous training session he mysteriously disappears into his room for hours and when Zoro and Perona go to like talk to him about something they find him curled up in like fifty blankets bingewatching whatever the Grand Line equivalent is of Netflix.
Zoro comes back from training with the baboons to find an elaborate feast spread over the table for him and Perona and Mihawk is sitting at the end of the table eating Lucky Charms
Zoro and Perona make a bet to when Mihawk will get up from reading a book. They learn a lesson about patience and perseverance when Mihawk literally does not move from the chair for 8 hours.
Perona one weekend finds Mihawk sitting outside in the gloom of the castle in a lawn chair with a full cucumber/charcoal mask on, wearing a fluffy robe. He then indulges with her a conversation about the importance of vitality and skincare, before going inside and kicking Zoro’s ass.
