Feel free to add your own! I’ve… been thinking a lot about these two. It’s gotten weird now, I know…
She loves orange marmalade because it’s the first sweet he ever made for her, and consistently makes, because it keeps well in storage and is good to guard against scurvy—all from his experience as a sailor. They’ve gotten into a regular schedule where Smee will send them the oranges and Alice will help her papa prepare for the next six months’ worth of jars.
By the time she’s sixteen she knows how to navigate around dozens of worlds, even without having left the confines of her tower, thanks to her education. By the time she’s escaped her tower, she’s able to fend for herself thanks to her unconventional homeschool education.
Speaking of education, Killian has stressed teaching her everything he knows so she is prepared for any sort of world she’s able to enter once the curse breaks. Once he runs out of things to teach her, he finds books of all sorts for them to learn together. She can speak at least three languages, read nautical maps of dozens of worlds, navigate by stars for those same worlds, sword fight, cook meals that will keep well over time, and knows how to dance a few basic dances if she were ever asked to a ball. After all, she was raised with the right partner.
He’s strict when it comes to tidiness. They have a small space and it can feel so much more cramped when clutter is thrown around. He’s noticed over the years how much her mood changes when she feels cramped, so he does what he can to make her living area feel as large as possible. When she was little he turned cleaning into a game where her toy bin was a kraken and they were trying to feed it as fast as possible to keep it from devouring their ship. She usually ended up running into things in a klutzy rush during that game and descended into giggles, and no amount of his “good form” captain side could feel frustrated at the collapse of order in his ranks.
