tokugawa ieyasu x mc (unnamed)
a/n: another request!!! again i’ve never played ieyasu, properly so this might be a bit vague at times. the little i know about him is through tumblr spoilers (i’m too lazy to avoid them), so i tried my best to capture what i could of his character. this one is for @bakers97 who requested “forehead kiss.”
To say that he has difficulties being honest would be the understatement of the century. Anyone who said as much would certainly earn a laugh from her, knowing him as she does.
It isn’t only honesty, either. He tends to lack softness and kindness and generally all concern for those around him, and she can’t blame him. He has suffered more heartache in his years than she can dare to imagine, and she still wakes crying when she dreams about her father. But, just because she does not blame him does not mean she is not disappointed — in a way, she is. Not with him, necessarily, but not with herself, either; the best she can explain it is that she is disappointed in fate for dealing him such an uneven, heavy hand, and forced him to bear it so long alone that it has become a shell on his back which he retreats into, spitting venom to keep his would-be enemies at bay.
She pities him, a bit, but more than that she loves him, and it is that which drives her to show him all the light in the world he has refused to see for so long.
