Little Gifts // Samifer Headcanon
If you love someone, you give them a gift. It’s a common concept and it’s practiced by humans and animals alike. So it’s natural that Sam expected angels to do the same, he simply didn’t expect the kind of gifts they favored. Humans give each other flowers, jewelry or things like that, and Lucifer? Lucifer gives Sam stones.
Not any kind of stone will do though, oh no. Lucifer’s gifts are the most beautiful little gemstones one could think of and Sam’s can’t even imagine how expensive they must be. Lucifer brought him a beautiful emerald that reminded him of a sunny forest in summer, a sapphire that was almost as blue as the deep sea and rubies that look like little blood drops. Sam even has a small selection of differently colored diamonds, which he loves holding into the sunlight and watch it break into beautiful rainbows.
There are a lot of stones Lucifer brought Sam over time and even though Sam wants to tell him he can’t give him such valuable things, he just can’t bring himself to do it. Because those little stones? They are Lucifer’s way of saying ‘I love and adore you’, without words. He is not one to speak about his feelings, but these little gifts say it for him. And when Lucifer takes Sam’s hands and puts a new stone in them, looking at him with his blue eyes filled with adoration and love and utter trust, all thoughts about telling him to stop are gone from Sam’s mind. All that is left is the feeling of being loved and the smile on his face that only Lucifer ever sees.
One day, Lucifer gives Sam a special stone though. It’s a little bigger than the others he gave him so far and not polished, but that’s not what mesmerizes Sam. It’s the color and the way it changes. Just looking at it, the stone is a hazel color, a mixture between brown and green, but when Sam turns it, even just a little, the color changes slightly and it looks blue-ish sometimes, then more green or more brown and sometimes even golden. Sam has never seen something like this before and asks Lucifer what it is and where he found it, something he usually doesn’t do.
And Lucifer, slightly embarrassed but his voice filled with pride, tells him that he found it by himself, in the Amazonian forest. He says that it’s an undiscovered gemstone that he found while searching for a different stone and that he named it Samatit, because it looks like Sam’s eyes and he thought he would like it too. Sam, absolutely baffled and flattered, looks at Lucifer with wide eyes before pulling him into the tightest hug he can. There are so many things he feels right now, but the most dominant one is a deep and overwhelming love for his angel.
“It’s absolutely beautiful, thank you, Luci. I love it and you so, so much.”
