The request I followed up on was your flowertalia one. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what it was, but when I looked it up, I was pleasantly surprised!
To give a short summary, flowertalia is an au where humans’ lives are connected to a plant they were born with. The more they love something, the more their flower blooms. But if their flower fully blooms, they die!
I decided to go with a humanverse flowertalia story for Alfred and Ivan, where Alfred’s flower is a white clover and Ivan’s flower is a pink carnation. I hope you enjoy, and happy holidays!
His father had always criticized his mother for it, saying he got it from her - the burning curiosity of new things that she so readily encouraged. But his mother had always brushed it aside, saying there was no harm in a little learning. That is, until the incident on his sixth grade science class, when his heart almost failed when he learned about the moon’s orbit of Earth. He recalled with pain how he had drifted in and out of the medically induced sleep, seeing his white clover in full bloom by his bedside, as the doctors hurried to quell the dopamine rushing through his head. When he woke, his parents held him from his science class until the moon unit had ended. They had also forbid him from learning any more astronomy, but that didn’t stop him from smuggling Mars books from his local library for long under-the-blanket reads. The way he figured it, there was no point in living if you lead a loveless life. And as he grew older, he had never lost his lust for living, but instead had found better ways to hide it. He would smuggle away his tears of joy, his philosophy and writing and song, for his private walks in the quiet morning woods of northern Maine.
His job as an accountant was less than thrilling, so when the holiday season came and he got a break, he was more than happy to go visit his mother at her nursing home. He and Charlotte had always been close, especially after the fight he had a few years ago with his brother Matthew that left them distant and cold. His mother was one of the only people in his life that didn’t frown on his natural intensity.
Charlotte was once gorgeous - straight hair cut into a bouncing bob, shimmering blonde pairing nicely with her melted caramel eyes, and skin of smooth clotted cream. But even as time had dulled the sparkle, edged wrinkles in and sagged her cheeks and faded her hair, she still held the grace she had all of her life. And when she smiled the whole room lit up; the sunlight shone a little brighter and the food tasted a little better.

and tiny headcanons about the mobliz kiddos because i say so ( this is all post-game so imagine it’s been idk 1 or 2 years since the game’s end )
all the girls are close but ailis and greta are inseparable
ailis and greta look after brendan when terra, duane, and katarin aren’t around
she is the self-proclaimed leader of the girls and can be just a wee bit bossy
but she generally means well; she’s just the type who takes charge
after eckerd, she is the kiddo the rest of the kiddos listen to ( except fremont )
she’s also the one who will tattle on you if you get in trouble
aka so she tattles on fremont all the time pretty much
out of the returners, she admires celes the most
she has a crush on eckerd
age 4 ‘ and three quarters ’ i.e. ¾
and brendan will insist on that last part
he is the youngest of the kiddos and follows terra around a lot
i mean why do you think i chose a name that meant ‘ little raven ’ *nudge nudge*
he thinks fremont is the best thing after sliced pie but also laughs at him when he gets in trouble
he gives everyone abbreviated names / nicknames, mostly because he can’t say them all i.e. locke is lockey, celes is celey / cessy, edgar is mister egur, setzer is sezza, etc etc
the only names that he probably gets right is gau’s and mog’s name
but he’s probably called edgar ‘ papa ’ at least once
is the brother of greta
the oldest of the kiddos, not counting the teenagers duane and katarin
eckerd hangs out with fremont a lot but he is far more sensible than him
aka if he knows that fremont will get in trouble he will hightail it outta there
he has a more sincere sense of humour and is also thoughtful and mature for his age
fremont thinks he’s the ‘ leader ’ of the kiddos but the kiddos actually turn to eckerd tbh
due to his maturity, he isn’t as *attached* to terra as their mama as the rest of the kiddos but his respect for her for being around when all the kiddos needed her makes him genuinely see her as his mother figure to the point of following suit with the other kids and calling her ‘ mama ’ as well
he gets along well with everyone but especially with cyan
all the girls are close but euna and lotte are inseparable
but she’ll essentially follow whatever the older kiddos do or say
and euna says what she wants too but mostly that boils down to gossip
mostly about duane and katarin and the baby because what else is there to gossip about
once she meets locke and celes though, she will openly gossip about them too because if even a 5 year old can tell there’s so much unresolved stuff between them, you know you have problems
she thinks terra should marry edgar, mostly because that would make terra a queen and euna wants to be a princess but also because she knows edgar would treat terra right amirite
also relm is her senpai and she thinks she’s the best
she’s the one who recognises esper terra first tho tbh
is the twin brother of fremont
the most sullen / withdrawn of the kiddos who always has his nose in a book
lbr he was probably much happier before kefka destroyed their village and killed their parents
however, despite his melancholia, franz does retain a gentle disposition and like the other kiddos, he has a bit more of a hopeful outlook on the future ever since terra came to mobliz
terra dotes on him the most tho because *cOUGHS OBNOXIOUSLY* uMM he…reminds her of someone… it’s not pre-experimentation kefkawhat are you talking abouti didn’t say it you did
but he’s also that kind of person who will say slightly morbid things per occasion, mostly to see how you will react because it secretly kind of amuses him, and you’re just not sure how to respond
probably that one kid who straight up asks you if you’re gonna take mama terra away like DAMN
is the twin brother of franz
fremont is the older twin
gets nicknamed ‘ monty ’ and is probably the one who gets in the most trouble
probably only gets called ‘ fremont ’ when he’s in trouble — so a lot of the time basically
honestly half of the reason why he gets in trouble is because he’s trying to get their mama’s attention or impress the girls but ew he still thinks they all have cooties too except terra so
like you think brendan’s the mama’s boy but it’s really fremont like
he thinks he is terra’s favourite and he will say it to your face
he doesn’t like anyone who’s even remotely close to terra of the opposite sex
and he’s probably the kiddo who bars your path when you visit the house the first time
what a lil shit
is the sister of eckerd and she respects her big brother a lot
again all the girls are close but greta and ailis are inseparable
out of all the kids she is the nicest and is responsible for her age
if any of the kiddos helps out terra with chores etc, it’s usually greta who volunteers
she also helps looks over duane and katarin’s babbu too because bless her soul
like seriously she is diligent and kindhearted af but beware if you ever make her mad tho
greta and ailis look after brendan when terra, duane, and katarin aren’t around
3/100 days of productivity: reorganized my schedule!
Christmas was honestly kind of a long day, but I got through it and got to give and receive some pretty sweet gifts. My mom’s gift to me is buying me a new backpack, because mine is about eight years old and literally falling apart at the seams. I did some research today, and I will continue to do some research, on the best backpack options for me.
I spent some time being productive by setting up my schedule for the next few days, until I leave for Winter Term at Eckerd on January 2nd. I’ll be focusing on spending time with my niece, my two best friends, and having some “what about the future” conversations with my boyfriend.
so i’m lazy and i don’t want to actually count the kids all over again and the game keeps giving me a different number of kiddos to count during every wor cutscene when i try to fact-check it on youtube yes i went through the snes / gba / steam versions just in caseand like sQUARE MAKE UP YOUR MIND so *for now* let’s just say there are four boys and four girls of the children of mobliz so mama terra and i can stop stressing over the numbers. also their names are : brendan, eckerd, franz, and fremont for the boys, and ailis, euna, greta, and lotte for the girls. 8′)
