  • who is he 
  • he loves everyone to know that you are his and you two are in fact a thing 
  • he stood up on the lunch tables and would not shut up about it
  • but most of the emotional stuff is kept for private uses 
  • cougH


  • he would much rather you two keep the details about your relationship a secret, he’s not comfortable at ALL
  • you’re classes are all with him, so he isn’t left alone 
  • so it’s pretty natural when you and him are together constantly

Okay so I’ll be using the Soulmate AU where everyone is born with a clock on their wrist ticking down till the moment you meet your soulmate. 

•Imagine everyone is so nervous on their first day at Peek’s Academy looking at their clocks indicating the moment is minutes away from happening
•Imagine them the day they wake up at highschool of despair after the feeling of blacking away, first thing they do is checking their clocks but they’re already on zeros???
•"I haven’t met my soulmate yet?? Wth???“
•So the memory erasing thing would be a lot more easy to figure out in this AU but think of it
•Everyone comes to conclusions that their soulmates are one of the people at the school BUT WHO IS IT?! NO ONE KNOWS
•On this AU your clock breaks the moment your soulmate dies
•Imagine the games start, we all know who the first killed student was
•Imagine Leon having a horrid feeling on his wrist the second he stabbed Maizono, only to looking at his broken clock
•Imagine Togami couldn’t care less who his soulmate is, he never did, but when everything over and for the first time he realizes his clock never broke through the games, he feels a strange sort of both relief and disgust because “my soulmate is one of these peasants good grief”
•Kirigiri recovering small fragments of the memory of meeting her soulmate, although she can’t remember specific details such as faces or places she remembers wide eyes and one hell of a nervous stuttering voice rambling about not believing his soulmate would be such an interesting pretty girl… And something about feeling lucky.
•Imagine the students who were having a relatively normal day and they just suddenly FEEL their clock and they KNOW it just broke, seconds before the voice of Monokuma fills their ears “Upupupuuu… A body has been found!”
