pls tell us all about the extra stuff Harry at Auradon to show he's in love with Uma
okay, hear me out: the isles of the lost obviously isn’t a place for love, pda or any type of affection so harry at auradon is Thriving.
and let me just mention my favorite hc which is that everyone’s already suspicious about harry and uma’s relationship bc of the Hook Incident™ where some curious student asks harry if they could see his hook or whatever and he makes a huge deal about it (evil threats included) and it’s pretty clear after that that touching harry’s hook is one of his pet peeves and will probably lead to some level of violence. so everyone is shook when a few days later, uma grabs the hook from harry and instead of immediate retribution, he just smiles fondly at her.
so the entire auradon population are already eyeing the two of them without harry’s xtra-ness.
said behavior includes:
- walking uma to the only class they don’t have together despite the fact that it’s all the way across campus and he ends up ten minutes late to his own class
- glaring and hissing at any student who has the nerve to try and insult uma (there are very few and even fewer after harry starts playing ‘harmless’ pranks on said students at night)
-more than one student has seen harry sneaking from his room to uma’s late at night and when he’s caught, the poor person that finds him only gets an unrepentant grin and the job of watching his room for the rest of the night to make sure he doesn’t try again (he does, at least three times)
-other students have seen harry, gil and uma chilling in the garden with harry making lovesick puppy eyes at uma while (to the shock and awe of said students) he runs his hands through her braids and puts them in a bun, ponytail, pigtails, etc all while cooing at her lovingly (yes, lovingly)
-harry almost fights a teacher who gives uma a failing grade on one of her tests and it’s only after uma (who had no idea harry went to confront the teacher) comes into the room to see harry restrained by a bunch of students and lays a hand on harry’s shoulder does he stop struggling
-the petnames? they never end. every other sentence ends with a “love, cap’n, beautiful, sweetheart, darling, angel, queen, etc.” people rarely hear harry call uma by her name
-lets not forget that harry is probably ridiculously jealous of any prep guy (+ girl) that tries to approach uma bc thats his ‘best friend’ and no one deserves her, especially not some privileged auradon kid so when any brave soul asks uma out on a date (after hes rejected) harry will do something petty like turn all his clothes pink or leave him dangling from a flag pole for a few hours
-he also probably spends a good hour picking flowers from some restricted auradon garden (i havent watched descendants 1 but if theres a garden where no one but the royal family is allowed to be he’s sneaking into it and getting flowers from there bc uma deserves the best) he presents these flowers to her at the end of every day when they finally meet up
-uma is pretty unapproachable to most of the students in the beginning and harry has that whole charming (but dangerous) personality and some students made the mistake of asking him about uma and his entire expression lights up and that student is trapped while harry sings the praises of his “fearless, clever, inspiring, did i mention beautiful” captain.
-harry also actually sings about and to uma. the songs are always goofy and flirtatious but one or two students have reported hearing harry sing really sweet and soft love songs to her as the moon reflects off the lake i conjure in my mind for this very scenario late at night
