So it's been a while but I just thought of a headcanon for Blackmadhi. I saw this post about how many descriptive food related things Nahyuta has said, and I give you: Nahyuta LOVES food. He's one of those people you meet who can out eat people twice their size. Blackquill thought he ate a lot but the first time he takes Nahyuta out to eat the monk just destroys him, scarfing down food while still managing to be beautiful and mind his manners. Needless to say Blackquill just can't keep up.
Oh my god this is amazing tysm.
And like, Simon probably actually doesn’t eat too much; prison life made him kind of accustomed to eating not too often outside of regular meal times and he got used to sometimes being hungry and so I actually imagine that he sometimes forgets to eat, especially while he is working and everything. And he won’t notice hunger until he actually pays attention to it.
So for their first date, Simon and Nahyuta go to a burger place - they played rock, paper, scissors for the restaurant pick and Nahyuta won so he dragged Simon…who pretended to be annoyed but also found it somewhat endearing.
Simon ends up getting something kind of small - although the place specializes in different gourmet-style burgers, he orders something else. (Sometimes I hc Simon as vegetarian for some reason??? I’M NOT SOLD ON IT but idk he definitely doesn’t eat any birds like chicken or turkey imo.) He looks puzzled when Nahyuta orders like the biggest and most elaborate burger on the menu and then asks for it to be sized up. And he also requests an extra side.
Their food comes and Nahyuta’s takes up more than half the table, and at some point, Simon just…watches. Nahyuta doesn’t eat sloppily or without manners. Actually, his manners are impeccable, which is why watching him just engorge this gigantic meal in front of him is so fascinating. The bites he takes are gigantic and fast, and Simon vaguely wonders if Nahyuta even really chews his food before swallowing. Nahyuta doesn’t eat or chew while speaking, but when it is Simon’s turn to talk, he just devours, all while remaining as beautiful and otherworldly as he always is.
It’s like watching a god inhale human food.
And because it is so interesting, Simon eats even slower, and by the time Nahyuta finishes his entire spread, Simon’s only about a third of the way done with his.
And Nahyuta starts talking dessert.
Only Simon goes home with leftovers.
