((This Kallura one shot was requested by @justpidgance who wanted some nice simple fluff. So given the free reign to essentially write whatever fluff I wanted, I went for a classic blanket sharing scenario. Enjoy!))
Earth had proven itself to be a good place to call home. Even if it was to be only temporary.
After everything had been finished and the dust had settled it only just occurred to Allura and Coran that with the destruction of Altea there was now nowhere in the universe for them to return to.
The paladins had readily offered to allow their comrades to stay as guests on their own home planet. A suggest both Alteans accepted more out of politeness and a lack of other options than anything else. In their heart of hearts, nothing could truly measure up to their own Altea.
MC x R.F.A.+V and Saeran getting ready for Christmas with their kid(s). Like, what they do on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
A quick guide to the MM x MC children:
Ryung: Zen’s daughter (eldest) Seung: Zen’s son (youngest) Haneul: Yoosung’s Son Nari: Jaehee’s Daughter Jin: Jumin’s Daughter Cheol: 707′s Son Ryukmi: V’s Daughter Jaeyun: Saeran’s Daghter
You guys have a family set of pajamas. They’re all matching and you’re sure to get a picture of the four of you in your “Crimas pajas,” as Seung calls them, on Christmas morning.
Zen is super into decorating the tree with the kids. You’re the one sitting on the floor, taking ornaments out of the box and handing them off to whoever’s available, but you don’t mind because you like watching them have fun.
When the bottom of the tree gets too crowded, Zen will suggest ornaments they can move up, and starts picking the kids up to let them place the ornaments higher.
One of the first years, you got really excited about seeing an old ornament, but Zen thought you got hurt and poor baby Ryung got a mouth full of tree.
On Christmas morning, you sit with the kids and help them open their presents, and Zen takes pictures. He’s a sentimental freak, so he keeps and prints nearly every photo, even if it’s blurry.
He loves taking a family photo every year and making Christmas cards out of them. Typically, Christmas cards would get sent to people that you don’t really keep in touch with, but he literally hands them out to his coworkers.
Around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, you’ll ask the kids for any old toys that they won’t play with this year. They both put a lot of care into putting their old toys into a box and bringing it out to the car. When you all hop in the car, still in your matching pajamas, and go down to the donation center, the kids have this big ol smile plastered on their faces.
Zen’s so proud of the kids and he thinks it’s crazy that they came out so kindhearted.
When you’re back home, another family tradition is to decorate cookies together. Zen and Ryung both don’t like gingerbread, so you make chocolate chip and snicker doodle people for them to decorate.
All your beautiful cookies get a photo shoot, then then they get eaten.
CHRISTMAS CAROLS FOR A STRAIGHT MONTH.
Haneul is barely four years old, but he knows almost every single Christmas song ever, because that’s all Yoosung plays from November 25 to December 25.
Yoosung is a slut for Christmas, especially now that he has a kid and a wife to spend it with.
Polar Express, The Santa Clause, Home Alone,,,,,,, He somehow finds a way to watch every Christmas movie within the month of December.
His favorite is Elf, because it’s
Haneul’s favorite too.
Haneul has to talk to a Mall Santa every year. It’s not that he doesn’t want to, it’s just that he probably wouldn’t if not for his dad pushing for it.
Christmas eve is pretty calm. The three of you bake cookies together, then leave them and some milk out for Santa. You help Haneul get ready for bed, then Yoosung reads him a Christmas bedtime story until he falls asleep.
After the two of you go out and take care of the cookies, milk, and presents, you watch a couple of those cheesy, romantic Christmas movies and go to bed.
In the morning, your son is usually pretty anxious to go see what Santa brought him. He practically harasses you both out of bed.
After the initial Christmas morning routine of opening presents and eating breakfast, Yoosung starts cooking.
“Yoosung its just the three of us, why are you cooking so much?”
“I didn’t tell you…? My family is coming over!”
Your son has been hijacked by his grandmother and you lost your husband
Where has your family gone
Yoosung’s mom always has something to say. Good or bad, the woman hardly ever stops talking.
Haneul is covered in lipstick oh my god where are the makeup wipes, your child is too fragile to be passed around like this.
Every year, Haneul ends up passed out in one of his parents’ arms
Family time is legit the most important thing to her, so she includes you and your Nari in everything, especially around the end of the year.
Holy crap, okay, so,,,,,, Jaehee makes this hot chocolate,,,,,,,,, and you don’t know exactly what she does to it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but it is sO GOOD.
She only makes it during December though,
Legit, this hot chocolate is enough to make you cry happy tears.
She really likes to go to the more festive areas and drive up and down the streets to look at the lights on Christmas Eve.
When Nari was a baby, Jaehee would have festive blankets to wrap her up in, but now she’ll settle for scarves.
Before bed, you play Christmas songs and talk about the good memories you’ve all made since last Christmas.
You have to keep your reputation as fun mom, so you let Nari sneak a piece of cookie from Santa’s plate before bed.
In the morning, you take turns assisting your daughter in opening her presents.
After presents, you look up a new cookie recipe (usually something bizarre) and all bake them together.
It was Nari’s idea the first time, but it’s become a tradition to drop off a plate of the cookies you all made to all the RFA members.
Okay, he’s usually super anxious about anything that involves him needing to go into full dad mode, but Christmas festivities come so naturally to him.
One of his favorite things to do around Christmas is help Jin write a letter to Santa and send it.
Christmas Eve, he really likes to just sit on the couch to enjoy some movies with you and Jin.
You do it about a week and a half before Christmas, but Jumin reeeeeeaaaaaaally likes buying the Christmas tree.
Of course, he also reeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally likes to decorate the tree with you and Jin as well.
Jumin loves to spoil you both, and he uses Christmas as an excuse to go completely overboard.
Jin loves coloring books, so when she gets some every year, he’ll actually sit and color with her.
Christmas eve really isn’t that big of a deal. You insisted on your first Christmas with Jumin that he allow the chef to have Christmas Eve and Day off, so the only thing that’s different is that you and Jumin cook dinner together.
On Christmas Day, everything’s super laid back until around 2pm.
The entire RFA comes over for a sort of mini party, and Jin is totally the star of the show.
By the end of the night, Jin is pooped.
Every year, she falls asleep in Jumin’s arms.
Oh Jeez, baby’s first Christmas
At some point, Christmas became super important to him.
When you first met him, his attitude towards Christmas was….. bad…. depressing.. but somewhere along the way, he started loving it.
Now that he has a family to spend it with, he gets super excited.
To him, Christmas isn’t really about the gifts or tree or any of that commercial shit. It’s about him getting to spend even more time with his family than usual.
He buys a tiny, fake tree to decorate with you and some garland that he sorta throws wherever it may look nice just to get into the spirit, but he doesn’t make it a big deal.
One year on Christmas eve, you accidentally turned on Lord of the Rings instead of Christmas movies, then left to make popcorn. By the time you came back to change the channel, both of them were super into it. The first Lord of the Rings film is now considered a Christmas movie.
On Christmas Day, the whole RFA comes over! Everyone makes food together (or they bring it already made), eats, and admires Cheol.
As Cheol gets older, Luciel gets more and more into celebrating Christmas.
Real trees, real decorations, the whole thing.
When he’s old enough, they work together to hang lights and program them to have a crazy light show on the house.
It gets bigger and better every year.
It’s only started a fire once.
V is a simple man with simple pleasures. He likes decorating the tree and hanging things up around the house to add some Christmas-y flair.
Ryukmi is so into Christmas. Like, she starts wanting to prepare as soon as December starts.
V is the holiday food guy. Hot chocolate, cookies, festive shaped pancakes,
On christmas day, he makes so much food, like,
Jihyun, why wont you cook at all the rest of the year??? You’re the most ridiculous man I have ever met????
V’s cool with the little decorations, but Ryukmi is never satisfied and plans out new decorations for the front yard every year. Her dad is always willing to help and be involved with it, but he’s a little lost when it comes to actually doing it.
One year, Seven was called over to make the lights even crazier than before. He taught Ryukmi how to do it and she’s still trying to teach V.
They both love to do that thing where they hide the pickle in the tree????????? Whoever finds it gets good luck or something???? idk
She runs a Christmas blog that’s goes year-round, so he takes pictures for her to have some original content.
Really, there’s not any Christmas Eve/ Day traditions besides opening presents and watching some classic Christmas movies.
They make blankets for the homeless, but they do that all winter long, so it’s not strictly a Christmas thing.
It’s super important to him that Jaeyun gets her time to believe in Santa. He didn’t really have the chance, so he wants to let her indulge in that.
He sits and helps her write a letter to Santa every year. He brings colored markers and helps her draw pictures that she might want to include.
Hot chocolate + cookies + family + Christmas = Happy Saeran
Christmas eve is spent doing whatever the heck everyone’s in the mood for.
He gets her a new Christmas hat every year. She loves them, but he mostly does it for himself because he think she’s adorable.
Christmas morning is spent opening presents, then sitting around and talking and listening to Christmas carols.
The rest of the RFA gets invited over, but it’s a very small event. Exchanging gifts, having a small meal together, then everyone goes home.
Saeran doesn’t make a big deal out of Christmas, but you know it really means a lot to him. Because of his childhood, he tries to give Jaeyun a good life, and Christmas is a large part of that.
went to a party last night and i started talking to this girl. we both realized we had a lot in common so we walked out on the roof and looked up at the stars. it was a little cool outside so she grabbed a light blanket. we just talked about life for a while and then i told her the story about how Alex broke both of his arms at the same time. hahah classic. she put the blanket over both of us and she started snuggling with me but when she started moving her hand down my thigh I was just like “woah”. i stopped it right there because I’m not going to get real close to some rando for one night. im kinda interested in someone right now…..sorry
