okay but like... head canon about clarke and lexa waking up for the first time living together and that kind of hitting them like they are living together, they are living with the love of their lives and they get to wake up to their drooling cute gay ass every single morning like can you even.
I think about this every time I’m writing hsau and basically:
-Clarke wakes up first, for once. (Lexa’s pretty worn out from the night before)
-Lexa’s breathing is deep and even, and she’s facing Clarke. Eyes closed, lips slightly parted, the face of absolute serenity. Clarke looks down at her hands, which are slung on Clarke’s waist, possessive even in her sleep.
-Clarke wants so desperately to be quiet and let her angel sleep but she can’t help it. A laugh bubbles up inside her chest and tears form in her eyes and it’s so strange to her. She knows how she’s going to feel every morning for the rest of her life.
-Jake’s absence left this hollowed time of the morning for Clarke, where she could do nothing but think about what if’s and could have been’s and Lexa completely obliterates that cold feeling with her presence
-Lexa’s eyes flutter open when a tear from Clarke drops onto her cheek and she’s obviously very concerned. Clarke wordlessly throws her arms around her, just to feel her, to kind of seal in the feeling of elation she has.
-numb and a little shocked, Lexa whispers: “Pancakes?”
-Clarke will never feel alone again.
