Request: Can I have a Shay x reader where the reader is also an artist? And maybe she doesn’t have a sketchbook and just draws on whatever parchment she can find,so Shay feels like this is his chance to admit his feelings for her?
Your name: submit What is this?
Y/N huffed in annoyance, unable to focus on the deck of the Morrigan, listening to the crew around her sing and laugh while she started making her way to the captain’s cabin. She knocked on the door quickly then opened it, stepping inside of the cluttered almost office area.
Shay looked up after hearing the door open then close, smiling at the girl. “Is my crew driving you mad?” “You know they are, Captain Cormac.” Y/N replied, Shay laughing and motioning for her to come to him. "Tell me about it.” “I’m not telling you anything, you’re the one who scrapped this crew together.” Y/N replied, walking to Shay’s desk, running her hands over the old map that lay on top of it- covering the surface completely. Shay smiled softly and watched the girl, nodding. "Aye. They’re a fine crew, though.” He then said, keeping his eyes on the girl in front of him, her eyes drifting to the map underneath her hands.
“Do you still need this map?” Y/N sheepishly asked, looking at Shay with an old map in her hand. The man only smiled at her, shaking his head. “No. We were finished with it long ago- I don’t know why I kept it. You can use it.” Shay then replied, standing up from the chair at the desk in his captain’s quarters, motioning for Y/N to take his place.
A small ceremony for the two, in a way.
“You know… Normally, I wouldn’t give up my chair so willingly, but… There’s something different about you. It may be because I get to see your pretty face change so fast- like when you mess up a line and your eyebrows furrow together before you huff out a sigh of frustration.” Shay started, grabbing Y/N’s attention as the girl smiled, looking up at him. “You notice all those things, Shay?” She then asked, keeping her smile as her eyes met his. Shay smiled, nodding. "I do, lass. They’re just a few of my favorite things I notice about you when you’re working on a picture. The others are when you get excited about finishing one, then when you realize your hands are covered in ink and you’re just… Frustrated. And now that I have your attention… I think I’ve fallen for you.” Shay then said, watching Y/N for a reaction.
Y/N’s eyes widened in surprise, then she smiled, Shay’s face relaxing.
“Took you long enough to say something, Captain.”
