there’s that little smile on even’s lips when he wakes up in the morning and he stretches out his limbs, an arm landing on isak’s chest, his leg lying on top of his. isak mumbles “ugh, you’re crushing me” and even replies “nuh uh, i’m as light as a feather”. isak’s eyes are still closed and he shakes his head and lets out a small laugh. now there’s a smile on his face, too
there’s that peaceful smile on even’s face after he’s had a conversation on the phone with his mom. he tells isak she wants him to come have diner at his place this weekend, and isak says “of course i’ll come”, and even’s smile becomes bigger
there’s that slightly incredulous smile on even’s face when eskild decides to show him some of the poses he learned that morning in his yoga class, and he tells himself there’s no way that’s how you actually do this, but he goes along with it anyway. there’s also the smile that accompanies his nervous laughter when eskild tells him he should totally join the class, adding that “it’s very good for the spirit.” “sure, eskild, i’ll think about it”
there’s that huge grin on even’s face as he can’t stop laughing when isak tries to make pancakes for the first time, and he put way too much milk in the batter, and there’s basically just a puddle of white liquid in the pan that starts to bubble up. even fixes the batter by adding more flour to it, and isak looks slightly confused and says “i’m usually really good at cooking, i don’t know what happened there”. and when even simply laughs some more and replies “i’m sure you are”, isak punches him lightly on the shoulder and says “i am!”
there’s that toothy smile when he sees magnus for the first time in two weeks, and magnus exclaims “eveeeen!” before wrapping him up in a tight hug, swaying with him a little as he asks “how have you been my friend?”
there’s that fond smile on even’s face when he and sana are sitting at the café next to school, and they discuss religion and politics and today’s youth and the last movie they watched, because her wisdom never ceases to amaze him, and he’s so glad to be able to call her his friend
there’s that big smile, the one that makes even’s eyes become surrounded by crinkles, the one that lights up his whole face when isak paces around his room, scratching his head and asks him if he’s seen his blue adidas jacket, and even tells him that he’s wearing it right now and isak stops to look down at himself and says “oh”
there’s that unique smile on even’s face that only isak is able to bring out, the smile that barely lifts the corner of his lips, the smile that’s mostly in his eyes, a mixture of affection and gratitude and admiration, one of the many ways he says i love you without words, and when isak catches his gaze, he smiles back at him with a similar smile. i love you too

Mod Hell: Do you guys want me to start archiving asks and answers–the long ones–on AO3? There’s not really a consistent tag for them and there’s getting to be a lot. If you guys are good with them in blog form, I’ll just leave them as is, but I’m happy to copy-paste them over if you’d like.
