he buys nursey a nice beanie bc he remembered him saying 234325 years ago that his ears were cold and when nursey’s like “bABE U ROMANTIC” dex just shrugs and is like “you said you were cold? dont make it weird nurse”
does this all the time to the point of nursey thinking he’s making up excuses for why things are romantic to be a little shit but no. dex’s life is just like this.
“oh hey i had some leftovers from dinner last night so i thought i’d heat them up for us also i found this random candle and it smelled nice so i put it on the table and shit yeah sorry the lights aren’t really working so it’s kinda dim in here right now also my radio broke and won’t stop playing frank sinatra i know it’s annoying but we’ll suffer through yeah?”
nursey: are u shitting me rn
sends nursey a picture whenever anything reminds him of him and most of the time it’s funny shit or memes but sometimes it’s cute stuff like dogs or a charming little bookstore or a sunset
always eats the flavor of m&ms/skittles/gummy bears/etc that nursey doesn’t like and remembers his favorite flavors to the point that for christmas once he was like “nursey really likes blue skittles. i wonder if you can get just blue skittles?” and spent a few hours looking up bulk candy sites and ordered nursey like a pound of blue skittles and nursey cried and his tongue was blue for like a solid 3 months
is always acting like him doing cute shit isn’t a big deal bc he genuinely doesn’t think it is; his family was very loving and he doesn’t think it’s a huge thing to be thoughtful to the ones you love but nursey’s attention starved ass cries daily about his romantic boyfriend
ok but he also doesn’t see himself being “romantic” bc nursey is a poet? and is always writing stuff for dex and waxing poetic about his freckles and his skin and what have you but nursey literally has a complex about how he doesn’t feel like he’s doing enough in the relationship bc dex does so much for him and is so thoughtful meanwhile dex is just “aw nursey wrote me another poem he’s so creative and thoughtful and wonderful i love him wow” as he looks up environmentally friendly pens on amazon bc nursey complained once that the pens he writes with use too much packaging and it’s wasteful
also dex doesn’t have a lot of money to buy gifts or pay for dates so he tries his best to notice and pay attention and be thoughtful and present which is great bc it’s something nursey really needs and appreciates
now im just thinking about cute things dex has definitely done for nursey but okay once nursey mentioned missing manhattan and all the cool buildings and the skyline and the next term dex literally took a woodworking class so he could make a mini wooden replica of manhattan and give it to nursey
he just pays attention when nursey speaks like that thing about relationships “turning towards” or whatever? he always stops what he’s doing when nursey needs his attention and just listens and he’s so intense about it nursey was like “whoaaa” at first but dex is just like “being ignored sucks” and nursey cries
nursey cries often bc nursey loves his bf so much how did he get this lucky???? he has no clue
i just!! dex came from a family where like, his dad would keep an extra tire in his car in case a friend broke down and needed help, his mom once stayed up all night to give a neighbor stitches because she couldn’t afford the er– his family taught him that you’re thoughtful and you pay attention when it comes to the ones you love and that’s how you show you care and dex is just like that, he cares and it shows when he sweated in the haus kitchen for hours trying to fix bitty’s oven and it shows when he makes nursey a gorgeous journal with his initials burned in for his birthday this boi is so kind and giving with his time and energy i love him so much
Hii :) is it possible to get some modern au hc for sanji, luffy, zoro, law and usopp pwetty pwease? :D xx
Hello there! Yes, of course it is :D This is all I could think of for now, hope you like them :)
Modern AU HCs:
Works at a fancy restaurant as a Station/Demi Chef. He has his eye on the title of Sous Chef! He also plans to open his own place in a few years.
If Ace and Sabo aren’t around, he does Luffy’s grocery shopping. This one time, he made the mistake of going over to Lu’s place while his brothers were out of town, only to be told that they were having cup noodles for dinner. He can’t let Luffy go on like that and still be able to live with himself.
I can see him being a runner and even taking an interest in field hockey.
HE LOVES HIS BIKE! It’s probably a Kawasaki Z800 or Honda CBR250R. A graduation gift from his siblings. He hates them, but calls his bike his baby.
Sanji takes care of himself (hair, skin health etc). He believes presentation is extremely important no matter what field of work you’re in and if you need suggestions for shampoos/conditioners, he’s your man (Zoro will never admit how grateful he is).
Luffy is a huge fan of The Undertaker. He grew up watching WWE and always ignored the warning of ‘don’t try this at home.’ Ace was always his first (easier) target. Once, he even tried the chokeslam on Garp. Which was a bad idea.
He’s into martial arts and wrestling, and if pushed to a less violent option, gymnastics.
He has two pets: a pet cactus called Fiona and a bearded dragon/pogona called Dragon.
His brothers got him an air fryer on his fourteenth birthday. It made their lives easier, for when they’re busy with work.
He spends a lot of money on candy (M&Ms and gummy bears).
Zoro’s his neighbour. Luffy spends most of his time in his apartment playing video games. He might join his friend at his martial arts studio till he figures out what he wants to do (SAME BOAT, LU).
His sense of direction never improved, but he comes home from work with Lu and it saves him a lot of time. As mentioned above, he opened his studio as soon as he graduated.
He majored in business administration. I know, I know but his mentor told him it would be a good idea if he wanted to open his own school someday.
He has a Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS.
He doesn’t care about what products he uses (hair and skin), and is content to let Sanji take over in that department. He does prefer natural and subtle scents, though (forest-y, rain).
His diet is usually high-protein. He isn’t fond of cooking but understands the importance of a balanced diet. He doesn’t indulge in junk food that often, except for the occasional pizza and when the group decides to eat out. It’s inconvenient but he’s a highly disciplined man.
Law is in his fourth year of residency. He’s specialising in Neurological Surgery. (I’m sorry if i screw up medical terms, I am not familiar with them at all).
He tries to eat healthy, but his schedule doesn’t always allow it. He moved in with Bepo (BFF) and it’s been better since then, because the cutie makes sure there’s good food in the fridge for his sleep-deprived best friend.
He likes to swim and run, but prefers to swim as being underwater makes him forget all his worries if only for a few seconds.
He has quite a few tattoos on his back.
Law never skips showers. Ever. He actually exfoliates quite obsessively on his days off.
He lives near the hospital, walks to work and back. He met Luffy when the latter was creating a ruckus in the hospital due to his aversion to the use of injections. Law kept him occupied by talking about the latest Assassin’s Creed game and they ended up becoming friends.
Engineering Science major! Also scored an internship with Dr. Vegapunk. But will most probably join Franky once it’s over.
He’s the proud owner of a blue Vespa Primavera 150.
Usopp is obsessed with Legos.
He likes to play tennis! Plays with Luffy and ends up regretting it. But this is where he bonds with Nami.
Always stands up to bullies! He defended a sick Luffy in school from a bunch of opportunistic idiots and didn’t back off even once. They were saved by Zoro, and the rest is history.
Gardening is one of his favourite hobbies! This man has a green thumb and a beautiful little garden. He has a special section for Sanji where he grows herbs and other plants used for culinary purposes.
