Do you have any headcannons about crying for these two?
hullooo and yes i do
gilbert would rather die than be caught crying honestly. like legitimately. first thought after crying is to get mad—which only makes it worse most of the time tbh. jokes help a little but not much—the best thing he can do to stop is to regulate his breathing until he’s calmed down enough to stop, but it’s hard to get to that rational thought. if it’s a silent cry, he can get over it pretty quick as long as there’s nobody there to see.
that being said, most of the time it isn’t. he’s one of the people who ends up gasping for air like a sea robin. it’s uncomfortable for all parties involved.
Ludwig—would, also, probably feel like he’d rather die than be caught crying, but he handles it a little better. His first reaction is to wipe the tears away, and his face like, absolutely crumples up—if he’s not egged on, he can get over it pretty quickly, and might even be able to appreciate that post-cry relief. if he is egged on, he’s just going to feel like absolute shite.
that being said, gilbert and ludwig are completely viscerally repulsed by each other crying, ludwig especially, and if they ever catch the other crying they just fuckin, leave. if there’s any comfort to be given it’s way fucking later, and then it’s rarely ever outright.
