What do you think is the nicest think Star has ever done for Marco and vice versa?
I thought how to answer to this ask for a while, and couldn’t think of anything good for it. From the perspective of the characters, in universe, I’d say that for Star is having sacrificed her wand to save Marco in Storm The Castle, and for Marco… harder to pinpoint a single moment, since he never did something as big, but went out of his way to help Star a multitude of times. Maybe comforting her in Mr. Candle Cares? Or sticking by on Mewni even after having escaped from Ludo’s dungeons to help her kingdom (but did he even have anothe choice? Did he have any access to dimensional scissors anymore?). From a point of view that’s more external compared to that of the characters, narrative wise we could say, I’d go, for Marco, for the ending of Blood Moon Ball. His relationship with Star hit, for the first time, a hitch, and he had no hesitation in swallowing his pride, admitting that he was wrong. Not as striking as giving up your wand to save your friend’s life, but it was a huge sign of how far Marco is ready to go for the sake of their relationship, putting it before his own ego. That’s damn hard, and that’s damn good writing.
It’s for Star that I have a harder time, in this case, finding a single scene. And this is not to say that she never did nice things for Marco -she did tons!, but the Very Big Ones are almost “impure” moments (narratively wise, I mean, not from the point of view of the characters themselves!), there’s an element that reduces the selflessness of the act. In Storm The Castle she, as a Fictional Character, was clearly forced to choose to help Marco, or the show would have been over. In Starcrushed she surely ultimately chose to leave Earth without telling anyone anything to protect him from Toffee, but there were other elements at play as well - when your Undaunted, fearless mother looks terrified, you understand that your home dimension is in big troubles. I’d say that the nicest thing Star did for Marco has been always believing in him. She always thought that he would have been able to do anything he wanted, from following her in dangerous adventures, to get Jackie. Trust is something that Marco “Low Self Esteem” Diaz needed like air. Just like Star “I Always Mess Up” Butterfly did, and the dork boy sure gave it to her.
IT IS DONNNNNNE! Hi everyone, Mr.E here with a new story. So in case you hadn’t heard, @moringmark came up with an awesome au and i highly recommend you go read his comics to find out. in general really go read his stuff. In short Jackie and Marco’s child named Jam and Star and Marco’s child Elizabeth come back from two different futures to make sure they are born. Jarco and Starco child are at ends with each other. I wanted to write a story for this epic au and i also pitched some ideas to moringmark about oc love interests for the two because PEOPLE KEEP PAIRING THEM TOGETHER! I’m sorry bu they are half siblings. no, just no. in any case i tried my best to give them love interests to better suit everyones shipping needs. Elizabeth’s best friend from the future Dart who is a gentlemanly teen who believes in standing up for those who can’t and Jelly, a present day girl who is a little dazed but heavily into conspiracies. I’ll write more stories, throw more time travel goodness in there *coughnova* and all that jazz but for now it’s time to give the spot light to moringmark’s amazingly well crafted ocs. I hope you and everyone else enjoys them
I was gonna wright this, but I know I never will. so im gifting it to you. Its a fanfic where the episode of friendemies played out exactly the same EXCEPT when tom fails, tom says for him to wait and to give him a second chance. brian says "im sorry tom, but your parents told that if you failed in anyway to tell them imediatly." then brain sciccors his way out. marco yells like normal, then tom starts crying, saying that marco didnt understand. tom tells marco his parents are going to kill him!
This was such an amazing idea! I really enjoyed writing it, but it was so sad! You made up a very good request and I liked what you thought of! I hope you enjoy the story, get ready for some Tomco hurt/comfort!
“No, please! You have to give me another chance!” Tom begged. Brian shook his head and Marco just watched, still processing what was just going on. “I-I promise I can do it this time I just, please give me one last chance!” Tom pleaded. Brian sighed and took out his scissors, cutting a portal open.
“I’m sorry Tom, but your parents told me that if you fail in any way, to tell them at once.” He reminded. Tom’s eyes widened and he fell back, he shook his head frantically and began begging more for a second chance, but Brian cut him off. “I’m sorry Tom. You know how disappointed they are in you, this was your last chance.” He explained, before stepping into the portal and leaving the demon behind.
“I should have known! I thought you wanted to be my friend! But you just wanted to use me!” Marco yelled at the demon. “You’re such a… JERK! I can’t believe you! I trusted you! I believed that you actually could like me… but I was just being stupid.” Marco bit his lip and shook his head. “I can’t believe you!” He hissed.
“I’m dead…” Tom whispered, too quiet for marco to hear.
“What? Do you have NOTHING to say for yourself!?” Marco was near tears. “I really thought we could be friends! But… you lied to me!” He screamed at Tom. Tom just stood there, still, staring ahead. “Tom? What’s going on with you?” Marco asked, wiping away some of the tear that fell. He then fell back when he saw Tom’s petrified face, with big tears pooling down. “Oh my god! Tom, what… what’s going on?” He asked.
“You… you don’t understand.” Tom mumbled. “I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die!” Tom was now screaming this phrase and rocking back and forth, grabbing fistfuls of his hair. More tears pooled down his face. Marco covered his mouth with his hand and ran over to the demon to try and get him to calm down.
“Tom look at me! What’s wrong? What’s happening here?” He pleaded. Tom just broke down. He fell to the floor and began sobbing, trying to wipe away his tears with his hands, but it was little use. He sobbed, and Marco just watched, not knowing what to do. “Tom, please look at me.” Marco put his arm around the demon, not knowing what else to do.
“I’m going to die…” Tom hiccuped. “He’s going to hurt me again…” He sobbed. Marco looked confused and Tom shook his head, burying his face in the human’s hoodie. “Oh Marco, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry, I should have… how could I have…” He sobbed harder and Marco couldn’t help but hold him close.
“It’s okay, it’s okay.” Marco hushed him. “I forgive you.” He soothed. Tom sobbed harder and he dove back into the human’s hug. Forgetting they were “enemies”, forgetting how much they “hated” each other. Tom just held on tight and met Marco hug him. “Tom please talk to me.” He begged. “Are you… you’re so… scared.” Marco realized. He hugged the demon closer. “Tell me what’s wrong. Tell who’s hurting you.” Tom shook his head and Marco grabbed his face, making him look at him. “Tom, tell me and I promise you, I will not let anybody hurt you. I will keep you safe, I swear.” He vowed.
Tom looked up at Marco for a long time with more tears running down his face. He had a look of disbelief on his face and looked up at Marco with pure amazement. He knew not to talk, he was always told not to talk. But when he looked up at Marco, he opened his mouth and it all spilled out. “My dad.” He mumbled. Marco nodded.
“He’s the one that hurts you?” Marco asked. Tom nodded. “Are you afraid of him?” He asked. Tom nodded again and Marco held him closer. “It’s okay, it’s okay.” Marco soothed. “Is that why you had this whole test? Was he testing you? And you failed, so he’s going to be upset with you.” Marco pieced it together and Tom sobbed harder
“Marco please, you don’t understand he might really kill me this time!” Tom sobbed. Marco nodded and rubbed his back soothingly. Tom sobbed and Marco kept holding him close. “I can’t do it again…” He blubbered.
“You don’t have to. It’s okay Tom, you don’t have to.” Marco hushed him and he kept sobbing. Before Marco could comfort him any more, another portal opened and Brian stepped back through.
“Tom, your father sent for you.” he told the boy. Tom let out a scream and tried to run, but Marco took his hand.
“It’s okay, it’s okay.” He assured. Marco then turned to Brian. “He’s not going.” he told the man.
“He can’t stay here, his father sent for him and I’m going to bring him home, now.” The man took a step forward and Marco ran at him, shoving him away. Tom gasped at seeing this and Marco shook his head again, going to hold Tom’s hand again.
“No! I said he’s not going with you!” Marco hissed at him. “I know everything! And you’re a piece of shit for not saying anything about it! And just sending Tom get hurt day after day! You’re just as guilty, do you know that?” Marco yelled at him. “You can say whatever you want to his dad, but Tom is coming with me.” Marco declared.
“You can’t just take him!” Brian called back.
“He’s not!” Tom finally spoke up and Brian look at him. “I want to go with Marco, I’m not going home I’m never going back again I want to go with Marco.” He began crying again.
“Tom, think about what you’re doing. You know your dad will find you, and do you know what trouble you’ll be in?” Brian asked.
“Stop it! You’re just trying to scare him into doing what you want!” Marco yelled. Marco looked down at Tom and held his face in his hands. “It’s okay, don’t listen to anything he says. I’m going to take you home and you’re going to be safe. I swear.” Marco assured him. Tom sniffled and nodded, he latched onto Marco and the human scooped him up. Before leaving he turned back to Brian. “Tell Tom’s dad I don’t care if he sends an entire army, or comes himself to try and get Tom back. I am not giving him up.”
Under the head canon that marco is bi, it must be so confusing for him to realize what his feelings for Tom are. Since he's never had a real best friend that's a guy, he's gonna be constantly back and forth over "is this a best friend or crush?" (This is happening to me right now lol)
Here’s the interesting thing about Marco and Tom’s current relationship:
Canonly ATM, according to the wiki, the book, and the Marco livestream….Marco is very unsure of how he currently feels about Tom.
They hang out, but he doesn’t know if they’re really friends.
And i suppose that would make sense, Tom’s been giving him mixed signals for a long time. Marco doesn’t know him well enough to know to understand why Tom does the things he does or whether what he might do could lead to trouble (atm)
It’s kind’ve interesting that this is what is canonly going on with them.
Tom, for certain, seems to definitely consider Marco somewhat of a friend to him (And considering his friendless background and lack of emotional support for years, it’s not a surprise he’s grown a bit attached to him in a short period of time. ))
Marco has similar issues, like neglectful parents, but so far Tom’s seems to be a bit worse. (Of course that’s just an observation)
Tom respects Marco (Whether he wants to admit it or not), Tom always accepts he does bad things and that it’s all on him. He doesn’t think of Marco as a bad person because Marco has always been in the right so far.
Marco, however, spent a long time thinking of Tom as being bad, and Tom has clearly done some bad actions towards him…making it harder for Marco to actually trust him.
So it seems like Tom thinks of Marco as a friend, and Marco is still not sure whether they’re friends…or enemies…which makes you wonder why he still hangs out with him.
I think a part of him really does want to form a friendship with him, but he just has his guard up so much he won’t admit it.
Why do i bring this up? Because let’s say tomco was going to happen….
Marco has no current answer to how he feels about Tom. He doesn’t hate him, but he’s not entirely sure if he likes him either. Marco’s in a position where anything Tom does now can shape his views and feelings about him.
a part of him wants to spend time with him, and he’s not sure why. When Oskar said they were “Bromancing”, Marco acted like what he said was ridiculous because there was no way they were forming any kind of close relationship (And so did Tom)
They already act like they have crushes on each other, when it hasn’t even been said in canon.
They have a relationship where they clearly like each other, but won’t admit it. They already sound like a bunch of different TV/Movie couples.
This isn’t a bad position to start a romance from.
Marco is already struggling with his feelings towards Tom, depending on future interactions….a canon crush can easily form.
Although if Marco did it, i’m sure it’d be handled much differently then how it was with Star.
That’s all both boys could really describe it as being, it wasn’t terrifying like they both almost expected, and it didn’t kill either of them either. They ate breakfast together, they laughed, they watched movies together and played with marshmallow as if nothing had happened at all.
But they knew, they knew better, that they were both thinking about it.
Tom just waited, it’s all he could do, he swore he looked too eager half the time for an answer, but could Marco really blame him? He told Marco he had a crush on him!!! How could Marco expect him to not just be waiting for an answer, and scared about which one would be his final?
Marco didn’t say no right away, that had to count for something right?
He just wished he could read minds, know what Marco was thinking.
Because it scared him to think Marco might be thinking bad of him, but it also scared him to think Marco might be thinking of liking him either. What would he do next? He sure as heck wouldn’t know what to do in Marco’s situation, he couldn’t even imagine someone confessing to him.
Sure, girls at school used to flirt with him, but they seemed to stop after he spent so much time with “Uncool Kid” Marco Diaz. Although, now that Tom was thinking about it, maybe they assumed because of Marco, Tom wouldn’t have been interested anyway.
Can you a fic where Star, Janna, Tom, Marco, and Ponyhead all have to confess their worst fears. Maybe Tom's is really sad and Marco has to calm him down or something
Awww! Of course I can! It’s been a while since I’ve done angst like this and really liked it. It was nice outlet for how I’ve been feeling today. I hope you enjoy the story!
It was just supposed to be a game. Ponyhead brought it over. The cube would ask a question and you had to respond with the truth. But as they played more and more the questions got deeper and deeper. It soon was not a game. But they were stuck playing. “I think… I’m just going to go.” Tom shook his head and got up. But a robotic arm came out of the cube and grabbed him, flinging him to the middle of the room. Tom hit the ground hard and Marco ran over to him.
“Tommy, are you okay?” He asked.
“NOBODY LEAVES. EVERYBODY PLAYS.” The cube’s voice echoes around. Marco held the demon close and Tom rubbed his back to try and offer some sort of comfort.
“Ponyhead! Why would you bring this damn thing into Marco’s house!?” Tom yelled, walking over to her with bright red flaming eyes.
“It was supposed to be a game, fireball! Relax!” She yelled back.
“Relax!? We are all going to die!” Tom screamed at her.
“Both of you cut it out!” Star yelled. The group stopped and looked at her. “We aren’t going to die, if we play the game, it will end and we’ll all be let go. So let’s just… play.” Star suggested. All the kids shuffled nervously and made their way into the middle of the room. They sat around the cube. “Just tell the truth and we’ll get out of here, and if you don’t it’ll torture us again.” She shuddered and Janna put her arms around her girlfriend.
“Next question.” Marco dared the cube. The words mixed around and the cube read the next question.
“WHAT IS YOUR WORST FEAR?” It asked. The kids all froze and exchanged looks. Tom all the sudden got very shy and moved in as if he wanted to vanish. Marco looked over and saw the demon was so scared looking.
“Tom? Are you okay?” He asked. Tom shook his head and got up. He ran to the edge of the walls and started kicking at it. “Tom! Calm down!” Marco cried, he ran over and pulled Tom away. He shook his head.
“No we have to get out of here!” He cried. The cube lit up red and a robotic arm wrapped Tom up, yanking him away from Marco and pulling him in.
“WHAT IS YOUR WORST FEAR?” It asked again. “TRUTH OR PUNISHMENT.” It hissed. Tom shook his head and tried his best not to let tears escape his eyes. The cube put another robot hand on Tom’s head, and the dmon passed out, falling on the floor unconscious. Marco ran over to him and started shaking him.
“Tom? Tom! Wake up!” Marco begged. Tom was whimpering in his sleep and making a distressed face. “I think… I think he’s having some sort of nightmare.” Marco guessed. Star bit her lip and Ponyhead made a scared face.
“The punishment sometimes corresponds with the question.” She explained. “If Tom refused to tell his worst fear, then he’s probably being forced to like, live through it.” Ponyhead told them. Marco shot up in shock.
“How do we get him out of it!?” He cried. The cube spoke again.
“WHAT IS YOUR WORST FEAR?” It asked.
“We have to play.” Janna realized. “Guys this is the last round, if we finish it, it will let Tom go, and we’ll be safe.” She suggested. Marco stood up.
“I’m afraid of never moving on! Never growing up and never making up my balloon- I mean mind.” Marco corrected himself. He then looked down at Tom and sighed. “Never finding something I really love… but that’s stupid.” Marco added. “Because I already did.” He finished. He then looked over at Star. “Your turn.”
Star took a deep breath and nodded. “Opposite. I’m afraid of growing up. Becoming queen.” She explained. Star then stood up taller. “But that’s stupid too! Because I’m adventurous! And growing up is just another adventure.” Star tried.
“I’m afraid of being insignificant…” Janna admitted. “But that’s dumb because I’m significant to you!” She told Star, taking her hand. “And that’s more than enough. You’re my whole world so, being significant to you is like… being significant to the world… does that make sense?” She asked. Star nodded and gave her girlfriend a kiss.
Ponyhead looked at her friends confused. “All y’all have deep rooted psychological fears… I just don’t mess with spiders.” She told them all. Everybody in the room expected that to be a lie, because that couldn’t be the ONLY thing she was afraid of. But the cube lit up blue.
“TRUTH.” It conquered. The metal walls all around them disappeared and Tom shot up, waking up with a gasp.
“Tom!” Marco cried, and he ran over to the demon. Without wasting any time Tom dashed into Marco’s arms and began sobbing. “Tom! Oh my god, oh my god.” Marco held him close. “It’s okay, it’s okay, I’m here.” Marco comforted. Tom shook his head and buried his face in Marco’s hoodie. The boys had some privacy, considering Janna and Star were doing something similar at the moment, and Ponyhead was investigating the cube.
“You weren’t!” Tom sobbed. “You weren’t here!” He pulled Marco closer and began crying harder. Marco didn’t know what to do, so he just held the demon close and let him cry. Tom was shaking violently and Marco couldn’t seem to get him to calm down.
“Shh, Tom, shhh. It’s okay. What do you mean I wasn’t here? I was right next to you the whole time.” He reminded. Tom shook his head and Marco ran his fingers through his hair, to try and calm him a bit. Marco continued the soothing motion until Tom’s sobs let up a bit.
“I… no you weren’t.” He wiped away his tears. “It was dark, and it was cold and I was all alone.” More tears filled Tom’s eyes and he began sobbing again. “There was yelling, there were bad people there, people who wanted to hurt me… but you weren’t there to protect me.” Marco held the demon close, now understanding everything.
“You don’t want to be alone anymore, do you?” He asked. “You don’t want to be defenseless anymore.” He added. At hearing Marco guess it and say it out loud Tom sobbed harder. Marco threw his arms around the demon and hushed him. “It’s okay, go on and cry. I’ll be right here.” Marco promised. He smiled and put his hoodie around Tom’s shoulders, hoping it would sooth his shaking a little bit. Tom sniffled and burrowed deeper in it, enjoying the warmth it gave him. “You’re safe now.” Marco promised. “No matter what, I’ll protect you.”
“But… what if you’re not here?” Tom asked, more tears slipping out. Marco took Tom’s face in his hands and kissed his tears away.
What are your headcanons about jean and marco's family lives? Who has siblings, who has a rough relationship with their parents, are their parents together or separated, etc?
My headcanons abt Jean and Marco are a bit backwards from other peoples i guess??
Like I imagine Marco and Jean as only children. But Jean gets along very well with his parents(even if they get on his nerves) while Marco has a harder life.
His dad is a hard drunk and his mom has passed away after giving birth to him so he’s been abused his whole life but he puts on a smile and sucks it up because thats what Marco does! Jean’s parents adore him though and it helps a bit to him!!
So where I live right now it's raining and thunderstrorming, and it gave me a Tomco fic idea. Tom being afraid of thunder and lightning and clings to Marco every time a thunderstorm hits.
Awwww! Of course I can write this! It was so cute! I had a lot of fun with this, I tried to make it sound poetic, but I can’t tell if it sucks or not. So a review would be nice! I hope you enjoy! I loved writing this and I love you!
Marco flipped the page of his book and smiled down at the demon, who was curled up at the foot of his bed. Marco made a soft face as he watched Tom’s ear twitch in his sleep. He looked so cute, and so peaceful.
But that was short-lived. When there was a loud clap of thunder that came from outside, Tom let out a cry, shot up like a bullet and latched onto Marco’s legs for dear life. The demon was making little whimpers as he grasped Marco closer. Marco sat up a bit, pulling his legs away. Tom gasped when the safety was taken from him, but then just ran up on all fours into Marco’s arms. “Tom, what’s gotten into you?” Marco asked, holding him close.
Tom opened his mouth to stutter out a response, but was cut off when another loud clap of thunder interrupted. It started out as a ear-piercing crackles, then became more booming, causing Tom to tense up and try and hide in Marco’s embrace. Marco smiled lightly when he realized what was going on.
“Oh Tommy, are you scared of the storm?” He asked. Tom blushed deeply and flattened his ears down.
“N-no.” He clearly lied. His point was disproven when a third rumble of thunder made him practically cry. This one wasn’t even very loud, it was like a low roar that fell over the sky, but it was enough to make Tom’s heart pound. Marco giggled a bit at Tom’s unusual behavior.
“I can’t believe a fearsome demon is spooked by thunder.” Marco joked. But his joking stopped when he felt Tom trembling in his arms. Marco made a little smile and held him tightly. “Oh Tommy, you really are scared, aren’t you?” Marco asked.
Tom just nuzzled closer and Marco felt him shaking harder as the rain picked up. “My sweet little love.” Marco gushed. “It can’t hurt you, it’s only noise.” He promised. Tom looked up a little bit, but dashed back down into Marco’s embrace when another clap of thunder spooked him. Marco hushed his demon and held him close, rubbing his back.
“Make it go away…” Tom whispered against Marco’s hoodie. Marco made a bit of a face and offered Tom a light kiss on the head.
“I wish I could.” He admitted. “You’ll be okay, you’ll be safe.” Marco promised. Tom squeezed his eyes shut and the human tried his best to calm Tom’s shaking and anxiety. He bent down and kissed the demon behind the ears. “There’s nothing to be afraid of, I’m right here with you, to protect you.” Marco assured. Tom clung onto his human and fought back tears as more and more of the noise outside frightened him.
“Don’t leave, don’t leave.” He mumbled. Marco hushed the quivering demon and covered him in soft kisses. Tom tried his best to relax as ran his fingers through his hair. He scratched his ears and petted his hair, doing all the things that made Tom feel safe. Through this whole time his grip never loosened and he didn’t let the demon go. He just kept holding Tom tightly and closely, making him feel safe.
“I’ll be here for as long as you want me.” Marco promised this again. “It’s almost over.” Marco assured, once he saw the rain was beginning to slow down. The thunder still caused Tom to jump and cry, but it was getting lower and quieter. “Just try and relax, the rain will be gone soon, I promise.” Marco whispered.
Tom shut his eyes rather tightly and Marco covered the both with blankets, so they were in a soft, safe cocoon. Marco smiled when he felt Tom relax a little bit at a time, as the thunder storm got further away. Finally the sound was hardly a rumble off in the far distance. Tom was now totally limp against the human, who kept petting his head and scratching his ears to keep him comforted in his fear.
Tom finally let his eyes drift open when he went a little while without hearing that horrifying sound. Marco grinned down to see his demon’s eyes open wide, they were still shiny from his fearful tears, and he had this weird look on his face as he tried to adjust to the light. He had his head buried under the blankets and in Marco’s hoodie for over an hour now. And when he opened those big red orbs the room seemed a lot lighter than when he first closed them. Marco sat him up a bit and Tom looked out the window.
It was light now, there was the sun shining through the last wisps of clouds and water was dripping down off of everything. The grass and yard was wet from the rain and puddles were everywhere. But the noise was gone, and it was replaced by the soothing sound of water dripping off the leave of trees and birds chirping in their newly-refound sunlight.
“I told you it was almost over.” Marco whispered in Tom’s ear. Tom smiled and he carefully leaned back in Marco’s arms. He rested his head on Marco’s chest and looked out the window at the sunlight that touched the boys’ faces. “Do you feel better?” Marco asked. He was a little concerned at how quiet Tom had been.
“I’m okay now.” He assured in a hushed tone. Tom smiled and held Marco’s hand, looking up at the human who was illuminated in the sunshine. He looked like a real angel who was sent for Tom, to protect him.
“You were so scared, my poor little demon.” Marco gushed, covering Tom’s face in kisses. Tom giggled and kissed the human back passionately, not wanting the time he spent in his arms to end. Marco kept giving him kisses and stressing over how awful it was to see his love so frightened. “I just had to keep you safe with me.” Marco finished.
Tom smiled and looked back out the window. “You did keep me safe.” He reminded. “You saved me from that bad noise.” The demon hugged Marco back at remembering what scary thing he had been spooked by in the first place. “You kept me safe in here while it was outside.” Tom explained. Marco smiled and scratched Tom’s ears.
“Tom, it’s just a sound, it never would have hurt you.” Marco assured. Tom shook his head and kissed the palm of Marco’s hand, leaning in closer.
Have you ever got an idea for an au and then thought “why?”
But I did and here it is!
- Marco is a young assistant in a lab to a really smart (and crazy) scientist.
- They preform horrible experiments in secret. Like bio fusion and such, for the military.
- Tom looks the same, but is a human. He’s a total anomaly. And because of this he was abandoned.
- They kidnap Tom to preform experiments on him, and in between Marco is put in charge of Tom.
- Marco gets to know him and every time he sends him off to get those awful experiments done on him it gets harder and harder
- Finally Marco realizes what they’re doing is wrong and decides to help Tom escape
- Tom won’t go and he admits it’s because he’s in love with Marco and doesn’t want him to get in trouble.
- Marco admits he realized the flaws in what they’re doing because he loves Tom too.
- And finally they both escape and are now hiding from the military who is trying to find them.
Could you do a story where Tom's father goes on a destructive rampage and destroys all of Tom's things and Marco tries to comfort him?
Awww of course I can! This was such a sad idea! This one made me really sad because I remember when my dad would do this sort of stuff. But enough about that! I hope you like the story!!!
Marco looked curiously when he saw the door was left open. It was odd for Tom to leave his door unlocked, let alone open. He always hid out in his room to get away from his dad. Marco reached out to open the door some more, and gasped in shock when it fell off it’s hinges. He looked around the room and fell back. It looked like a disaster ripped through.
“Tom?” Marco called, all of the sudden fearing what may have happened to his demon. “Tom where are you!?” Marco ran through. There was no answer. Could Tom have had a temper outburst and gone THIS far? Tom hadn’t had a temper outburst in ages, and before that it’d never been that bad.
Marco looked around and heard a little whimper coming from the closet. He ripped the door open and saw Tom curled up, clutching something to his chest. Marco covered his mouth with his hand when he saw that Tom had horrible bruises all up and down his arms, neck and face. Tom hadn’t done this.
“Oh my god… Tom, are you hurt?” Marco asked. Tom just looked away and kept sobbing quietly to himself, clutching whatever it was in his hands tighter. “Come on, please talk to me, tell me what happened.” Marco begged. Tom sobbed harder and Marco crawled in the closet, and sat down next to him. He wrapped Tom up in a big hug and hushed him. “Look at me.” Marco told him. Tom looked up and Marco wiped away his tears. He kissed his eyes and ran his fingers through his hair, continuing this until Tom’s cried let up a little. “What happened?” Marco asked again, in a hushed and soothing voice.
“H-he found out… he got mad…” Tom hiccupped.
“He found out what?” Marco asked. There was no question that the ‘he’ was Tom’s dad. Tom choked on a sob and thrust the broken object out onto Marco’s lap. He burst out in more sobs when he saw it.
“I-it was gonna be special for you…” Was all Tom could get out before bursting into more tears. Marco looked down and saw he was holding a broken wooden box. On the top it had his name carved into it and some sort of symbol. Marco opened in and it began to play a little tune, but because it was so destroyed, the music was pathetic and only carried a few disoriented notes. On the inside Marco pieced the pieces together to read “I love you”.
“You made this for me?” Marco asked. Tom nodded.
“He burst in and saw me holding it… he got mad that I had feelings for somebody… he said you were making me weak and… and he…” Tom began sobbing again and Marco pulled him in for a tight hug. “I begged him to stop but he just kept hitting everything!” Tom cried out. “And he was hitting me and I was scared and then he broke the music box and…” Tom just cried and Marco held onto him.
“It’s alright, go on and cry. I’m right here.” Marco soothed. Tom sobbed some more and Marco held him close. Tom cried even harder and Marco hushed him, trying to offer some sort of comfort. But the demon soon became so hysterical over the incident that he ended up crying himself to sleep, passing out in Marco’s arms.
Marco held him close and looked down, finally taking the time to survey the damage done to Tom’s body. He had so many bruises that it seemed like they were all one, connecting. Marco pulled up his shirt a bit and saw his stomach and chest weren’t any better. Marco looked curiously at a bruise on Tom’s ribs that seemed darker than the rest. He touched it ever so gently, but Tom still squirmed in pain. Marco pulled his hand away and looked at Tom’s pained face.
“I’m not letting you stay here.” Marco pulled Tom closer still and tried to fight back tears. He couldn’t imagine what his demon was going through, but he wanted to help him and hold him close, to keep him safe. Marco looked down at the destroyed wooden box and smiled slightly. He took out his scissors, scooped Tom up, and carried him home.
What seemed like hours later Tom’s eyes fluttered open. The first thing he noticed was that he was in a plush bed, comfortably settled. Tom sat up a little and winced in pain. Everything hurt, but the pain in his ribs were unbearable. He looked over and recognized the room as Marco’s, but what caught his sight first was his gift sitting on the table. Tom reached over and took it in his hands.
It was glued together neatly and all the cracks were expertly painted over. Tom opened it and smiled as big as he could when he saw his message was painted over neatly, so it was readable again, and the music carried out the lovely melody. He looked all around at the repairs done to the box.
Tom then noticed something was taped to the back of it. He took off the little note card and smiled.
I hope you wake up soon and feel better. I loved the gift more than I can say. It was a bit of a fixer upper, so me and Star sat down and tried to make it as wonderful as it was when you first made it. I hope we did you justice! I want you to stay in bed for a bit, call me when you’re up! I have a surprise for you!
I love you.
Yours and nobody else’s, Marco
Tom wiped away his tears and hugged the note tightly to his chest. He reached over to grab the phone off the nightside table and called Marco. The human happily picked up. “Wait there!” Marco called to him, before hanging up. Two seconds later a portal opened and Marco walked over, helping Tom up. “Close your eyes.” He insisted. Tom obeyed and Marco ed him through the portal.
“Okay now… open!” Marco beamed. Tom opened his eyes and his face fell to one of shock. His whole room was fixed up! Tom smiled when he saw he could tell what was done by Marco, and what Star had used her magic on. The magic left some glittery blue and purple in it’s wake, but Tom actually loved it. Not the color or the glitter, but the reason it was there.
“You did all this?” Tom asked, feeling more tears well up in his eyes. “You didn’t have to fix everything for me, I… I can’t believe you did this for me.” Tom started laughing and wiped the tears that fell. He was then bombarded buy a hug from Marco and Star.
Happy (early!) birthday to the lovely and talented thisismouseface, one of my favorite artists and an all-around wonderful person. :) Sorry it’s not longer, but I hope this little piece of fluff will make you smile. Have a great birthday!

Summary: “Do you even have to ask?”
(Jean has trouble asking for things. Good thing with Marco, he never has to.)
