Hi hellooooo are you taking requests? If so what are like perfect date headcanons for Gladio? Will he kiss on the first date, yadayada. Thanks!! ^.^
My first request, oh my gosh.
First Date: Gladiolus Amicitia
• Prior to your date, he’s going to ask you what your favorite color is. You’ll ask why but he won’t budge; reason being because he’s going to give you a bouquet of gladiolus flowers of said color. He’ll love seeing your cheeks turn red as you hug the bouquet close and smile sheepishly at him.
• If you’re the outdoorsy type, he’ll take you hiking and show you his favorite scenic routes. Gladio will have packed enough food and snacks for the both of you to sit down in the shade or in a patch of cool grass for you to enjoy and rest.
You’ll stop at the top of a hill and you’ll take in the view, meanwhile he’s taking in the view of you. He’ll step close, take your hand in his, and ask to kiss you; if he sees you can’t understand the question through eye contact alone then he doesn’t mind making his request verbal.
• You wonder why he told you to pack your swimsuit for the hike, only to discover that the last stop before the end of the hike is at a small lake with a beautiful waterfall. You won’t even get a chance to test out how cold the water might be because he’s going to scoop you up in his arms and jump in. If he didn’t kiss you earlier, he’s definitely going to as you cling to him for warmth due to the chilly water.
• You’ll be hugging him with your legs wrapped around his waist as you calm down from your giggle fit when he gives you that look. He’ll caress your cheek and give you an experimental kiss. When he hears you whimper as he pulls away, he’ll smirk and kiss you again but with more passion. It’s this intimate moment that he thanks the gods for.
• Rather do something with less vigorous activity? He’ll take you to a bookstore and tell you about his favorite series and poetry books, he’ll even ask for you to share your favorites as well; Gladio will most likely purchase a book you already own so that he can read along and discuss with you. He loves hearing about what you’re passionate about, especially if it has to do with literature. Yes, this man is a delightful combo of brains and brawn.
• He’s going to be holding your hand for almost the entirety of the date. No questions asked; unless it’s hot out and your palms get sweaty, then he’ll wrap an arm around your shoulders to keep you close. He wants to feel the softness of your hand against his/ the closeness of you.
• Next Gladio will take you walking around downtown Insomnia, perhaps even to a nearby park where you can lose yourselves in conversation. Needless to say the first date with him, whatever it is you decided to do, it’s going to last a while. He wants to learn as much as possible about you. If there’s a specific place you want to go, he’ll happily oblige and let you take the lead.
• It’s around then when you’re telling him a story about yourself that you’ll notice that he’s absolutely entranced with you, his eyes flickering between your eyes and lips. You’ll trail off when he starts to lean close and capture your lips in a soft kiss. And damn the Six if he isn’t the best kisser you’ve ever met.
• You’ll giggle and forget what it was you were talking about, earning a gorgeous laugh from him.
• Once you’ve worked up an appetite, he’ll take you to his favorite ramen shop. He goes there so often that he’s good friends with the whole staff, landing you guys a free House Special for the occasion.
And who doesn’t like free meals?
• Afterwards he’ll take you to an ice cream parlor for some dessert. Feeling bold? Order a sundae and eat the cherry in front of him. Do it. If he didn’t kiss you earlier, then watching you put the cherry in your mouth will make him forget any sort of restraint and kiss you. He’ll hold the back of your neck and pull you into a searing lip lock, relishing in your sweetness.
• Without a doubt, you both agree that this calls for a second date.
