How to care for your smol strawberry dragon lady wife: Hugs and kisses and lots of "I love you"s, and if that doesn't work, hunting for beasties is a fun distraction. Of course, there are other fun distractions to try.... But only I'M allowed to do that!!

The queen flushed deeply, the fan in her hand suddenly fluttering much quicker than it had been. “Acheo! honestly, you can’t say things like that in public…”

AcheoLoka head canons

1. Loka likes to trade the stuff she snatched with Acheo

2. Loka “Kidnaps” him whenever he wants to get away from his guards and chaperons.

3. Loka sends gifts whenever Acheo and Iracebeth have a new child. 

4. Loka babysits Acheo’s and Iracebeth’s kids so they can have time alone “Royal nanny Loka”.

Iracebeth ground her teeth as he spoke, small fingers curling into her hands. Yes, perhaps her Acheo had led court that day, but that was part of his title of King consort. And yes, she had tried to talk him out of it, but that did not mean that she did not entirely support the decision. “You’ll recall the warrant was in my own hand, Cicero! This decision was entirely my own!” If there was one thing she hated more than having to execute her children, It was another saying she was not her own woman.

She rolled her eyes and turned back to face him, shaking her head. “I had your things taken for a reason. You don’t have your enchanted things. Not so much as a lockpick. You’ll be executed at dawn, whether you like it or not.”

The Confusion of Kings and Thieves

Acheonickolas hated traveling without his wife.
A routine trip, to the desert lands, trading jewels and foodstuffs for glass. The sand nomads had the finest glass, though they were hard to find. Acheo and Iracebeth were renovating their grand hall, and Iracebeth refused glass from all the local vendors. 
Usually, for aesthetic shopping such as this Iracebeth would go with him, but she was with child and rounding into her third trimester. 
As she was not there to watch over him and his rather eccentric choices when shopping, she’d sent an entire entourage of servants and noblemen to keep him inline and safe. 
He didn’t like it much, they were all stuffy and boring and refused to let him dress in anything other than his finest outfits. 

He walked through the different stalls in the market, eyes wandering as his mind drifted to the one he left at home. 
A servant tugged his sleeve, pulling him back to the group, muttering that his majesty shouldn’t stray, as thieves ran thick in this place. 
Acheo nodded, tried to stay close to the ornately dressed courtiers. 
Then, an hourglass caught his eye. 
Sand fell slowly, twisting through glass swirls as moments slipped by. 
It was entrancing. 
So entrancing, he didn’t notice a small hand slip into his jerkin and steal his coin pouch. 
He noticed the weight difference, felt his pockets were empty, saw a figure walking away, too hurriedly to be innocent. 
“Hey, thief!” 
The figure ran, a dead sprint through the crowded market. Acheo followed behind on long legs, followed the figure for several blocks. 
Out of the streets, away from his traveling company, far from the civil parts of the nomads’ lands. 
He stopped, sucked in oxygen, breathing heavily from the exertion. 
He was in a strange place, now surrounded by weird caravans. He wanted to study them, know exactly how they worked, but mostly wanted his money back. 
“Thief! I know you’re here!”

Ship Meme: RACIE X ACHEO ♥

Raccie is more likely to hurt Acheo, but she has to really, really try to do it. Words roll off the man like oil on water

Acheo is emotionally stronger, in that he’s flexible. Iracebeth is extremely persistent, but when she breaks, she breaks badly

It depends on the verse, really. Tol Acheo is stronger than Raccie, but Raccie is stronger than smol Acheo

Raccie is definitely more likely to break a bone. She’s a bit foolhardy, and yes, it does worry Acheo sometimes

Acheo knows how to upset his wife, but that really isn’t saying terribly much :p

Who apologizes after an argument largely depends on who started it and why. Despite her nature, Raccie will apologize if she actually managed to get a few emotional blows in and if she started the argument, but at all other times, it falls on Acheo.

Iracebeth treats Acheo’s wounds more often than not His narcolepsy has a tendency to strike at very inopportune times. She’s bandaged more than a few wounds caused by falling into pens, cups, saucers, and hot beverages.

 Raccie is in constant need of comfort, from him or really anyone who would give it if she’s honest.

Honestly, they’re both excruciatingly possessive of each other. I suppose Raccie’s more jealous, considering she had him killed over it.

Neither of them ever considered walking out on the other, not in their worst times. Without a really good answer, I’ll have to shrug and point at the execution.

Raccie has the most difficult parents, if only because she gets along surprisingly well with her in-laws. They aren’t terribly fond of their son, but they’re more than happy to have a princess as their daughter-in-law. They’re almost as sour tempered as she is, as opposed to Acheo, with his incurable optimism.

They switch hand-holding duties, to be honest. Sometimes Acheo’ll initiate it if he thinks Raccie’s getting nervous or irritated, sometimes Raccie will if she wants to remind him that she’s present.

Acheo is an absolute blanket thief. In his deep sleep, it’s not uncommon for him to completely wrap himself over and leave his long-suffering wife to cuddle up with him closer. How dare.

Raccie is prone to sadness, but it helps if she stays away from the wine.

Acheo is perhaps the only one who can really reliably cheer up Iracebeth - it’s one of the reasons she loves him so.

Raccie is entirely the one smacking Acheo’s arm if he starts joking. Especially if he gets on a pun streak.

Raccie is more streetwise, if only because she’s paranoid of everything that breathes and a few things that don’t.

Acheo is extremely creative, but Iracebeth is much more book smart - take that as you will.

Iracebeth is extremely shy when she’s not trying to fake confidence. Acheo will often spend an hour talking her into dancing when being received in foreign territories.

 It is difficult to make Acheo stop talking about his wife sometimes, especially when she’s expecting. Iracebeth shows him off in her own way - complaining about the little flaws that she absolutely adores.

Again, this depends on which verse we’re in. Raccie is very happy to be nestled on tol Acheo’s lap, but smol Acheo spends his fair share of time cuddled on top of her.

You are not afraid of the sufferings and sorrows of other people, even when they are acted out in unappealing ways. Beneath even defensiveness and self-righteous behaviour, you know that deep down people need nurturing and consolation. One danger is being naive about people’s dark sides. But at your best you know you can be mean yourself, which helps you to sympathise. You bring strength and forgiveness where other people might panic. 


You don’t set out to be different for its own sake; you are more easily guided by what interests and moves you. You are more concerned about what is right for you than about the pressure to fit in. In sex you are more aware than others of impulses which are not entirely conventional. You know the value of selective irresponsibility, of forgetting occasionally about being ‘good’.


You are good at seeing what’s funny, at relaxing and finding the pleasure of the moment. Play is random, whimsical, fantasy-driven behaviour which releases internal tension. Because it is detached from some pressures it allows you to act on weirder, perhaps neglected, parts of yourself. The downside is that it is no help in sticking with things that are not much fun but which need to be addressed. So it is well complemented by its opposite, Stoicism.
