If you dye your hair, your soulmate’s hair color changes as well and you swear the moment you see your soulmate you will choke him/her because you just woke up with your hair colored like a rainbow and it’s your first job interview at a prestigious company what the hell. Oh, and your best friend just took a picture to post online and wait—what, how many likes is that? (Soulmate AU) Tell me this wouldn't be hilarious! *heart eyes*

I’m Dyeing To Know You

AN: As Mates/Soulmates AU is one of my absolute faves, well…this is what happened. Hope you enjoy :)

Thanks for the awesome prompt, Ashlee

Klaus hated the soulmate thing passionately.

If it weren’t for the bizarre side-effects, he would probably never pay it much thought. Some people were always on the lookout for their other half - and well, he wasn’t one of them.

He liked his life as it was, fate-less and with no complications.

Well, apart from one tiny little detail.

His soulmate apparently loved experimenting with her hair. Which in itself, wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing. However, one of the effects of the bond meant dyeing one’s hair resulted in the respective change occurring on your mate’s head.

Everyone else thought it was hilarious.

As for Klaus, he found he wasn’t as easily amused. Especially given his supposed soulmate would always choose the most unfortunate moments to dye her hair.

Right before his first date, it had turned a vivid shade of blue (who would want blue hair?!). For prom, he had been sporting a pale shade of pink with singular brighter streaks - his date had not appreciated (it didn’t go well with her dress or something ridiculous like that). Suffice it to say, the night had turned out to be a bust for him. As did many other nights.

Elijah’s stag party and a wedding - a ghastly shade of green. Which had almost made his brother reconsider Klaus’ participation in the wedding party as his best man, deeming his appearance inappropriate and “disruptive of the main theme.”

Rebekah’s graduation - a ridiculously bright orange. His sister had told him to stand in the back corner and not acknowledge that they were family.

One time it had started changing colour during sex - even now, Klaus could recall the blow to his ego when the chick laughed in his face during the act while his hair turned from blonde to red.

If Klaus was sure of one thing, it was that he would put that incessant girl through torture, then slowly choke her if he had ever met her.
