N: even more cuddly and touchy than normal, and that’s saying a lot. He’s not hard to wake up, esp since he’s so used to it and sometimes he simply can’t sleep in late bc his mind won’t let him. So if you’re still sleeping at this point, he’ll take this time to run his fingers lightly over your skin and admiring your sleeping face. Fixing your hair out your face, he’d kiss you on the forehead and begin to stretch his limbs, quietly getting up to fix you both some breakfast.
Leo: he’d curl up next to you while alseep, and it’s hard to move out of his grip in the morning…not that you’d want to. He mumbles in his sleep a lot, so you always end up asking him what be was dreaming about the night before, and he answers with the same thing every time, “you.” He’d take his time to fully wake up, not really wanting to let go of your body and start the day.
Ken: a very light sleeper, and wakes up often during the night bc you move around and lot lmao so let this boy get his sleep while he can. While still unconscious, he’d pull you into his chest and sigh peacefully. After finally waking up, he’d smile lazily at you but pout and groan when you try to get up.“babyyyy, let’s just stay in bed all day, we have nothing important to do.”
Ravi: he barely gets any sleep, and when he’s finally home and sleeping next you, he’s completely knocked out and isn’t going to wake up for a while. He thinks of you as his teddy bear, basically, and refuses to let you out of his arms. All he wants to do when waking up is to cuddle with you for a little while, and talk about his previous day. Sometimes he’d play music while you two talk, and you’d both end up jamming hella hard to whatever he’s playing, and that’s his favorite way to wake up.
Hongbin: he’d try to give you your own space and not bother you while asleep, but you’d both somehow end up entangled with each other in the morning, neither of you wanting to move. He’d lazily draw his lips across your shoulders and neck, mumbling about quiet ‘good morning’ and smiling. He isn’t the type to sleep in late, and sometimes manages to get up early to make you breakfast.
Hyuk: will pretend he’s still sleeping, and snores very loudly as you try to wake him up. It’d take a lot of jumping on his back and “wake up, you lazy dummy” for him to roll over and attack you with kisses. Wouldn’t want to move out of your comfortable bed in the morning, and takes as long as he can just talking to you about anything and everything, and stroking your hair. He’d try aegyo for you to fall asleep with him again, and you’d never admit it…but it always works.

bachelorette party. Even if her wallet didn’t agree.

Willie was as thrilled about the mechanics of painting as Jamie was about the
hardware of a computer. “I invited a couple lads. Just Rupert, and Angus, and
Ian, if Jenny’ll let him.” The mention of their sister brought a smile to Jamie’s
face. They were thick as thieves growing up, and he missed her greatly. But she
and her husband Ian had been expanding their family rapidly, which kept her
busy. He usually only saw her once a week, for Sunday dinner.

Claire pulled at the hem of her dress, trying to stretch it.
It was an older dress, worn during the wild days of cheap liquor and strangers’
lips. Since then, her hips had rounded considerably, and it felt like her arse
was showing with each step.

entrance, Rupert flung open the doors with a mighty bellow.
He sauntered to them with the cockiness of a man that knew he was the biggest
in the room. Which he probably was. Behind him trailed two smaller men- Ian and
Angus. “We hear ye’ve pleased another man today.”

Ye’ve got a filthy mind, probably.” He winked.

The pub grew steadily louder, and Claire found it more and
more difficult to concentrate of her friends’ conversation. A mixture of the
noise and alcohol.

giggled, disarmingly sweet compared to the plans she had. “We should leave

shake her head in mock disgust.

a Friday, she was glad to be out with these women. Her friends.

he should call it a night.
A picture I began way back when I was still midway through ASB chapter 21 and trying to inspire myself. Aside from the work needed by the totally unfinished cave, I meant to change Ken’s hair a bit and fix Takeru’s uber long finger. I hope I finish it someday, but it has been a long time…
The reason why there’s blue lol purple light on Ken and Takeru is because I meant to draw Koushirou’s crystals on that rock column.
