No one knows why, but one day, Pokémon were found everywhere in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Koopa Troop, wasting no time, caught a bunch of them while Bowser built a League and kidnapped Princess Peach afterwards. After receiving a Pikachu and Pokédex from Professor E. Gadd, Mario or Luigi must collect eight keys to enter Bowser’s Castle and save the princess, while Wario or Waluigi tries to do the same.
He observes Tetsurou’s dark circles when he comes home from work every night, in turn kissing them all, a silent “i’m glad to be home”. Tetsurou never complains, though. He loves teaching little kids about chemistry and physics and the secrets of the universe. But Kenma knows he likes it best when he’s wearing a pair of ratty old sweats, eating popcorn and laughing at really bad movies with the rest of them. And he always brings back leftover candy from school.
He observes Keiji’s mouth, a slight droop of lips indicating his discomfort at having to work overtime at the hospital. Keiji never complains, though. He loves helping people. But Kenma knows he likes it best when he’s at home, absorbed in a good book, his head on one of their laps, enjoying one of the quieter moments with the rest of them. And he always brings back flowers that remind him of them.
He observes Koutarou from a distance, a star shining almost too bright to look at directly. But he sees the sagging of his shoulders, an indication of self doubt and dejection. Koutarou doesn’t complain about it, though. He loves playing volleyball and he knows his students look up to their coach, a figure of strength and resilience. But Kenma knows that no matter how spirited Koutarou might appear to his students, he likes it best when he is sitting under the blankets with the rest of them, late at night, talking about the latest ghost story he’s heard from his students, an act that always always leads to cuddling. And he always hugs them all so hard, lifting them off their feet and planting a kiss with a plop on their cheeks.
Where does Kenma find himself in this equation? How does he show his love, when he can’t even say the words “i love you”? Maybe he doesn’t have to.
Tamlen and Dorian (and I) wish you happy holidays!! :D
(And Dorian is just kidding of course. Even if Tamlen was 7 feet tall and twice as heavy as he’s now he’d still let him use him as a pillow.)
Although Tamlen doesn’t celebrate Satinalia (he had actually never heard of it until Josephine had suggested to hold a Satinalia ball at Skyhold) he likes the idea of giving gifts to your loved ones during that time a lot. He used all his sewing skills to make a fur-lined scarf and gloves for Dorian, so that the poor hothouse orchid would freeze a little less during the southern winter months. And since great minds think alike Dorian gave his Amatus a new scarf as well - in is favourite color :D

okay... i'm jumping on the anti in glasses bandwagon and i bring you this... anti not wearing his glasses because he feels it messes up his 'edgelord' look like "dark i can't wear glasses, i'm not a nerd." and dark tries to show him that it won't mess up his look like "anti, wearing glasses does not make you a nerd. see?" and he wears his own and anti can't help but stare because whoops dark looks damn good in them *fingerguns out*
I am living for this. LIVING. The boys in glasses makes me smile so wide oh my gosh.
“Now you really look like an old man, Dark~”
“… Anti, you prick. I’m going to-”
“But you’re pretty good-lookin’ for an old man, I guess.” He shrugs.
And then they start wearing them more often, even when they don’t need to.
