Heyy could you please let the Rfa+V+Saeran react to Mc being a reallife princess??
Holy shit, this one is amazing. Thank you.
Okay, before writing this, I googled if Korea had a royal family and… well, holy shit, the history is fascinating.
Here’s the link. I might operate under the idea that she’s a Korean Princess, or I might work under the idea that she’s a princess from a different country (like a European country, or something else, IDK).
- He was going through a history textbook when he came across a picture of the Empress of Korea before they were forced out
- Yoosung ended up laughing
- “Hey MC! Check it out! You look kind of like her!”
- “Yoosung, that’s my great-grandmother.”
- “What?! But that’s the Empress!”
- “I know. I’m technically a Princess.”
- He just about faints
- I mean, this is the woman he’s dating
- They play LOLOL, they hold hands, they kiss, they’ve gotten close to….
- Yoosung’s freaking out because he’s almost had sex with a literal Princess
- It’d be one thing if it was in a game, but this is real life!
- Once the freak out wears off, Yoosung is more interested in protecting her and treating her like she deserves to be treated
- She makes him stop, to some extent, because he keeps saying he wants to “treat [her] like a princess!”
- She didn’t really put two and two together (not that MC would have told her anything)
- She didn’t realize that MC was actually Korean Royalty, especially given the history
- It wasn’t until her father decided to come to visit from Japan that MC had to fess up to it
- Jaehee was shocked
- Secretly, she couldn’t help but think how much this was like a fairy tail (or a fantasy she had as a kid of meeting a Princess in disguise that fell in love with her)
- MC’s not expected to inherit anything, but a Princess being in love with a woman is a little bit of a scandal
- MC manages to duck the news and keep things clean so that their cafe isn’t hounded by the press when her father goes home
- Jaehee ends up taking the whole thing surprisingly well, she just asks that, any huge surprises like that come sooner than later
- Secretly giddy she’s in love with a princess that loves her back
- When he first called her “Princess” she damn near had a heart attack
- How did he know?! Except, then she realized he couldn’t
- MC hadn’t used her real name as her username, let alone anything related to her name
- When he did find out, his eyes were the size of dinner plates
- He tried to bow, but MC stopped him
- “It’s not a big deal.” The hell it isn’t, MC.
- Of course, he refuses to give her up for the world, but he calls himself her loyal knight from then on
- Also, he makes it his personal duty to protect her from all harm
- … yeah, it was a tabloid that recognized her.
- Here’s the thing, MC didn’t think it would be a problem, right?
- Royalty in Korea are just people who live in relative obscurity
- Sometimes they make the paper, but it’s like a Bigfoot sighting in the US, nobody puts much stock into it
- But no, MC had to start dating a rich, powerful, famous man, surrounded by paparazzi and people who run background checks
- Once it’s confirmed by multiple sources and MC herself, Jumin is surprised, but pleased in a small way
it’s a good PR move and his father will adore it and be forced to accept their marriage
- Jumin ends up using it as an excuse to pamper her and buy her expensive things
- He likes finding traditional, old fashioned jewelry for her to wear
- He spat out his Ph.D Pepper
- Seriously, you don’t expect to do a background check on a girl, only to find out she’s a literal princess
- It’s why he wouldn’t share her photo
- It’s also why he found it so easy to flirt with her
- She was, by all foreseeable standards, unavailable
- The perfect girl for him
- But when things go well with them, and he starts to see himself having a life with her (a normal one), he panics
- Like “nope, sorry Your Highness! I’m just a lowly bastard (in the literal sense), not worth the soil you walk on!”
- Except that Korean royalty were forced out of their own country and are currently just title holders, hold no real power and just kind of…. exists?
- They do make jokes about how the son of the Korean Prime Minister and a Princess of Korea fell in love
- He knew she was foreign
- That, V could deduce for himself
- Between her distinct accent and red hair, he figured it was obvious
- He just didn’t know where from
- One day, while they were sitting at home, watching tv together, there was a knock on the door
- When V answered it, it was a reporter who was trying to force her way into to talk to “Princess MC”
- Well, needless to say, MC explains, yeah, she’s a princess, she’s from Europe
- He doesn’t treat her much differently, but he tries his best to help her hide her identity from the press
- However, when MC has to go home and visit her family, V joins her on this mini vacation and uses it as a chance to take photos
- Mildly embarrassed the trope was turned on its head
- “Prince Charming rescues girl, they ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after!”
- More like “Princess MC rescues Saeran from clutches of evil cult, then drags him off to a hospital to seek medical and mental help so that he can begin to recover from the life long shit he’s been wading through.”
- Well, she doesn’t order him to get better, but she does sit with him a lot and basically forces him to get better, even if it’s only so much
- Saeran takes measures to protect her identity from the public, keeping her hidden in plain sight so that she doesn’t get attention she doesn’t want
- When a news station plans to run the story about how they found her, Saeran has algorithms that figure it out and he then blackmails the station into dropping the story
- Saeran’s justification?
- “MC says she loves me, but she’s never told me about being a princess so she doesn’t want anyone to know so no one will ever know unless she wants them to.”
