Headcannon for Sidon, Teba, Revali and Link having a s/o who lost their memory after taking a blow to their head, how they would help to regain their lost memories and how they react to their s/o gaining their memory back?
S/o loses their memories and how the boys deal with it
He is devastated. Just. Devastated.
He cannot fathom that you, the love of his life, no longer remember him
He does not want to give up and tries to explain who he is
But even optimistic as this Prince is, Sidon is hurt when you are apprehensive with his assertive recollections
He tries to show you all the special places you two would sneak off together
But each time, you shrug your shoulders in response when asked if you remember a thing, he wants to cry
He has no choice but to stay strong
But as the weeks go by, then months, and nothing has changed, Sidon who tries to show you tidbits of your life together, he is slowly giving up.
He is depressed he cannot hold you, to you he is but a stranger. And all he wants to do is hold you in his arms and never let go
But one day, when his sorrow overwhelms him he hugs you from behind.
He is confused when you lurch forward clutching your head.
Tears spill from his eyes when you turn to him, dazed and confused.
“I-I remember you!”
He lets out a sob of happiness, thanking Hylia to the stars and beyond.
He does not want to believe it. He thinks it’s just a cruel joke
“How can you not remember me? We’ve been together for years, [Name].”
But when he sees you cower in fear, he torn between being crushed and enraged.
He doesn’t know what to do and spends the first few hours mulling over how this happen
He begins to blame himself and cannot hide his pain. “If I was faster. If I was better then-”
He tries not to snap, and keep himself in check but when something that used to mean so much to the two of you, holds no meaning at all now, he wants to flee
But he stays by your side no matter how much it tears him up.
He feels hollow when he takes care of you. He glares as the wound on your head
Some night he stays up staring at your sleeping form, wondering what he did to deserve this
Other nights he reads up on how to help those with amnesia, but he gets discouraged seeing “Most never regain their memories.”
He stares at you blankly as you stare at him, he loves you so much, but not this blank shell of a person that took you over.
The desires and passion you once had is not there. And he does not feel comfortable getting to know the new you.
But one day when he walks in his home and sees your face buried in his tunic, he’s concerned and confused
When your face rises, and tears are gushing he is in a panic.
“Oh, Teba!! I am so sorry!”
He doesn’t say anything but bring you into a hug and silently cry.
“No. No. No, no, no! [Name], please tell me you remember me? Even just a little?”
He will demand any healers, shamans, and what have you to come fix you. But each time they tell him the same thing. “We will have to wait and see.”
But he doesn’t want to believe it. “Do not patronize me as if you understand! My [Name] is not here! My [Name] would not forget me!”
He spends his days working with you, slowly easing you into the routines you used to do, and read stories to you like always.
But he can feel himself unraveling, nothing he does works.
No clever insult. No puns. No boisterous feats. Nothing that used to get you riled up works.
At night he tries not to, but he cries. When he sees your form sleeping at the other end of the house, he just wants to shake you until you can remember.
Your mannerism are there, he can tell. Some days your hand wonders to brush his wing, but his heart shrivels when he realized you “made a mistake”.
He tells you stories of your adventures together, and there is a bitter-sweetness to his tone.
“Heh, but then beast threw you on a cart of coal.” He mumbles under his breath
“It wasn’t coal, it was chunks of diamonds.”
He is surprised, but so are you.
“You- Yeah, you came to my rescue, and I got mad so instead I-”
He flings his body on yours and nuzzles his face along yours.
He was there when it happened and he felt like the world around him stopped
He remembers when he first picked your body up, a deep gash pouring blood
When Link had healed you on the battlefield he was concerned caused you did not wake up
He never left your side, even when others would tell him to go rest, but he wouldn’t leave, not until you woke up.
When you did, he wasn’t sure what to do with himself, but he hugged you
But he was so confused when you shoved him off you, looking at him like he was some savage.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing? Stay off!”
He tried to reason with you, but you cut him off. “I don’t know anything about you! Get out!”
His heart shattered and he plopped on the chair behind him.
Although you were hostile, he came everyday. He didn’t say a word, but would lay down some trinkets you used to fond over.
He didn’t know how to help you, he knew that eventually, if it ever did, your memory would come back.
He would have to be patient.
He waited years, and was still by your side.
He had gotten used to the new person you were, and your hostile attitude melted away by his caring side.
One day when the two of you were out for a stroll you tripped and he caught you. Your arms wrapped around him
He could hear you inhale his scent before you engulf him in a hug. “Link, you smell like my Link…”
A tear slid down his cheek, he knew his patience would pay off one day.

usually when you see him on campus he’s a little awkward and clumsy and his long limbs make him look wobbly but when he’s playing he’s really good and his determined expression is really handsome

and you’re like “coach is-” but chanyeol makes you put down the gatorade and he picks you up easily and you’re like !!! and the coach is like CHanye O L and chanyeol walks back into the locker rooms and sets you on one of the benches and opens up his locker and gives you his varsity jacket and is like
“stay here and rest, ill be back when the game is over.”
