Okay but can we take a moment to talk about how truly traumatic Leorio’s past really is? Like, I know we all talk about how terrible the other three’s childhoods are:
Killua living with a physically and emotionally abusive family, Gon with his father abandoning him, Kurapika’s clan being killed.
But I think we tend to forget that Leorio had just as much of a tragic background as the others. He watched his friend die. Right before his very eyes.
And then that hard reality sets on him; he could have survived if they had money for medicine. It was an entirely curable sickness. But all he could do was watch as his friend collapsed. And let’s just think for a moment; Leorio lived in such an impoverished area, there were probably bound to be other people he knew who suffered from the same sickness or a different illness that could have been saved from that miraculous money antidote.
So Leorio could have seen far more death in the course of his childhood that we may not even know about.
This becomes even more of a pressing issue for Leorio, especially concerning Gon. Because seeing Gon just laying there, practically charred skin and bone wrapped up in medical tape, physically and emotionally kills Leorio. Not just because it’s Gon and he feels so connected and attached to Gon, but because it brings back those memories. Of when he couldn’t do anything but watch someone die. And he thinks “Not again. I will not stand by and watch someone die again. I will find some way to heal Gon. I will invest every single piece of fame, fortune and time to bring Gon back.”
And when Gon enters through that door in the middle of the election, Leorio is so happy; so overwhelmed to see Gon alive and well. He’s so, so ecstatic that for once,
Pleaseee headcanons for dating Jason?? From the 2017 version? eeeekk I'm in love with him
Omg yes now I written for all of my boys yay! Ikr I’m love him too! I honestly love them all sm. I’m trash lmao
•He’s the leader, so basically he feels responsible for like everyone on the team- especially you
•At first he didn’t want to start a relationship with you, because naturally if an enemy found out you would leverage
•When you do finally get together, he. Is. So. Protective.
-If a guy even looks at you the wrong way he’s gathering the team, “its morphin time”
- and you all have to talk him down, reminding him what Zordon said about not escalating fights or abusing your powers
•Oh man, on the battlefield this boy is deadly. If an enemy hurts you, they’re down in record time. Jason always tries to stay by your side, he couldn’t imagine not having you there with him.
•He’s so worried about everyone, and you know the ‘leader’ mantle doesn’t help that. He’s soon becomes the mom friend™ of the rangers
-legitimately he will call all of you to make sure you get home safely after a battle or if one of you gets drunk at a party he will personally drive them home and carry them up to their bed and stuff like that
•He has nightmares, about Rita or you or the others getting hurt
-So he calls you at random times, his breathing heavy and you just talk him through it, assuring that all of you are safe and that you love him
-Sometimes he just calls because he wants to hear your voice
•He is actually pretty mellow on the PDA, like hand-holding or arm draping but no intense make outs in public
-the only time he does is if another guy won’t leave you alone, and he kisses you just to show your taken
•He calls you these cheesy pet names and you high key love it
-He calls you ‘baby’ too, but it’s mixed in with ‘love’, ‘gorgeous’, and ‘beautiful
-you always call him ‘captain’ jokingly (he would die if anyone found out but he thinks it’s super hot)
•His little sister totally adores you
-one time he walked in and you and her were having a tea party and he just knew you were the girl he was gonna marry
•His whole family likes you actually, his mom is really happy he got a good girl and his dad even claps his back telling him he did good with you
•The two of you always hold bike races through the City, but he mostly lets you win
•the whole team loves you together, and you haven’t been happier than when you’re with Jason and your friends.
(Aw this was so cute. I hope you all enjoy! Love ya! Feel free to request more!)
“Come on, Adrien dear. We’re done, it’s time to go!”
“Hold on, maman! I gotta do something first!”
Adrien tugs his hand away from Madame Agreste before running towards the little girl standing next to the counter. He takes out a package he’d hidden underneath his coat and hands it to her.
“For you!” he says with a grin. “I didn’t know it was your birthday a month ago so..uh…Happy Late Birthday! You can open it by the way.”
Marinette quietly takes the package and examines it before tearing the paper wrapping away and quickly tossing it on the floor. Adrien spots the sharp look her mother makes but the girl ignores it, instead gazing at the black cat beanie in her hands.
“Do you like it?” Adrien asks, twisting the end of his jacket sleeve.
The smile that quickly appears on her face is the brightest he’s seen on her since they’d met.
“Yes,” she finally answers with a loud breath. “I love it.”
With that, warmth floods Adrien’s cheeks as he grins. Before he catches himself, he leans forward to plant a kiss near her left eye. Marinette giggles at the sensation before looking back at him with bright eyes and an even-wider smile.
“So um..goodbye now,” Adrien says as he begins walking towards his mom with a wave. “See ya tomorrow?”
“Uh, yeah! Tomorrow!” Marinette waves back at him, no doubt her own face flushed with red.
The black cat beanie looks adorable on her, both the mothers think.
OK SO. First of all, I did not expect that drabble to get THIS long omg (actually it was even longer but I manage to cut it down to make it quick and snappy). Second of all, I was hoping to color this completely but it wasn’t working so I stuck to generally monochromatic tones. Third, CHILDHOOD FRIENDS AU AGAIN. Ugh these kids <3
ChildhoodFriends!AU headcanon: The mothers arranged to have their kids visit each other to hang out and play whenever they weren’t busy.
Edit: Forgot to mention I used a reference for the posing but tweaked it a bit of course.
