I'm over here just chinhands and quietly yelling still at those puppy dog eyes, my word. Could you tell me more about Linna and Malady's relationship? What do you love about them? Do you have headcanons? Gush away! \o/ [sorry for asking a bunch of questions btw I just find this delightful :3c]
Oh man, what I DON’T love about them?
I love that they both are extremely supportive of each other. They do not question each other if they are in need, and Linna, just like Malady, would hop in the fire to get Mals out of troubles. Linna adores Malady’s sense of humor, the fact that no one can put her down and that her words can be a greater danger than her magic. Mals is aware of her own power, and that confidence is like extremely sexy to the Godwoken. Linna was a loner before, not because she didn’t like people but because she preferred to work alone - no one to interupt her when she’s working, no one to be a time eater, and no one to steal her work. With Mals, who’s pretty much also as curious as she is about the world, she feels like she finally has a partner. A godwoken and an extremely powerful half demon? Alone, they are a force to be respected. Together, they are unstoppable. They are a powercouple, and they are ready to kick arses! What Malady loves about Linna is her curiosity and passion to dwell underneath a problem. To seek for answers. To explore and expand the universe. Linna has a heart of an adventurer, just like herself. And… in all that, Linna sees her. Malady. Not an elf, not a demon, not a living weapon to be used, but a person under all this smile and sass. She’s seen the best and the worst of her, and she still reminds by her side.
As for the headcanons… There’s a thing - when Linna confessed Malady. Spoilers ahead tho! So this is going to be under cut.
