cupid a captive

Have some laurent x damen fluffy hcs: (kind of a compilation lmao)

  • Laurent reading on damen’s lap and damen nuzzling into his neck. 
  • Laurent slipping his hand into damen’s pocket when it’s cold.
  • Damen stroking laurent’s hair and kissing his neck softly until he relaxes and falls asleep.
  • Laurent saying “i love you” to damen very quietly in the crook of his neck, and damen pulling him slightly away with a smile and daring him to say it again (a flustered and earnest laurent obliges).
  • Damen singing off-key in just an apron while cooking laurent breakfast. 
  • Damen laying with his head on laurent’s lap and looking up to see him blushing. Laurent: you’re very attractive.
  • Laurent reaching up and kissing damen’s jaw when they’re standing next to each other.
  • Laurent laying in bed, watching over damen as he sleeps and passing his fingers over damen’s lashes very softly and giggling when he jerks his head and finally wakes up to tackle laurent.
  • Laurent putting his cold feet onto damen’s calfs at night and laughing as he groans.
  • Damen being his romantic self, whispering something cheesy to laurent and laurent actually flushed and breathless, (why are they like this)
  • Laurent reading poetry to damen at night and damen listening but more interested in trailing his fingers over laurent’s skin.
  • Damen cupping laurent’s face in his hand and kissing his forehead.
  • Laurent with his newly found passion for wrestling (thanks nikandros) trying to wrestle damen to the floor and ending up beneath him, laughing until damen kisses him.
  • Damen texting laurent the chessiest stuff and laurent rereading it over and over throughout the day with the softest smile on his face.

François Boucher, Cupid a Captive

1754 

 Boucher used the full range of Italian and French Baroque devices—the dynamic play of crisscrossing diagonals, curvilinear forms, and slanting recessions—to create his masterly composition. But in his work he dissected powerful Baroque curves into a multiplicity of decorative flourishes, dissipating Baroque drama into sensual playfulness. Lively and lighthearted, Boucher’s artful Rococo fantasies became mirrors for his patrons, the wealthy French, to behold the ornamental reflections of their cherished pastimes.
