If it's ok, how about RFA + V + Saeran reacting to MC w narcolepsy? I have it and I've never seen a request for it... lol
A/N: I only know the gist of what narcolepsy is so I had to research a little bit;;; I hope I don’t have a bunch of wrong information;;;; I tried to include all of the symptoms for some variety ^^;;; ~Admin 404
-He always thought you were just really tired and was afraid you haven’t been getting enough sleep!
-After a while, he started to think that maybe you were just… bored of him
-You would agree to play some LOLOL with him but every time he needed you to help him or when the whole guild was in the middle of a huge boss battle, you always seemed afk?
-But when he looked over to you, you were asleep on your keyboard and he felt bad. Maybe you didn’t want to play but did it just to make him happy? Maybe you haven’t slept recently?
-Every time he saw you asleep he would just cover you with a blanket or his jacket until one day he couldn’t take it anymore
-“MC, are you sleeping? Are you bored of me? Are you sick? Are you alright? Are you-”
-You cut him off asking just what the hell he was talking about and when he told you he was concerned because you were constantly asleep and seemed to be every time he checks up on you
-You honestly laugh because?? He’s cute??
-Explaining that you have narcolepsy, which can come with Excessive Daytime Sleepiness(EDS), so you sleep a perfectly fine amount, just like he does, you just can’t control the timing
-He feels /SO BAD/ because he didn’t know it was an actual… condition…. He’s apologizing /excessively/ and keeps a close eye on you from now on. If he notices you starting to go to sleep, he’s right there next to you, giving anyone who so much as breathes too loud his best death glare. He’ll let you sleep whenever you need to, he has your back
-You tossed and turned constantly at night and he felt pretty bad
-Were you uncomfortable? Did he need to move? What was it?
-Often, he’d cuddle you against him and hope for the best
-Then he’d see you constantly falling asleep during the day?
-One time you feel asleep in the middle of helping him with a line from his script and he honest to god thought you had feinted. He was ready to /nyoom/ run straight to the hospital with you in his arms
-You woke up in a hospital bed and were so confused???? He jumped up and held your hand in his own, dramatically dropping to the floor
-“MC! I was so worried about you! What happened? What’s wrong? The doctors couldn’t figure it out!”
-You looked at him with furrowed brows, completely confused
-“Zen I took a nap what are you talking about???” he explained how you practically passed out in the middle of talking about how you didn’t seem to sleep at night and you had to explain to him that with narcolepsy, you have troubles sleeping at night sometimes and during the day you just… can’t stop yourself from falling asleep
-He is always watching you from then on and makes sure he’s there to catch you because!!! What if you fall!!! What if you get hurt!!!! If he’s not there, he’s begging you to watch your surroundings carefully and just lay in a safe spot if you need to sleep. You agreed just give ease his mind
-She noticed there were quite a few times that you’ve been really excited and your knees would buckle
-Or sometimes your bright smile would immediately droop
-The day you kind of just… dropped to the floor and looked up at her was the last straw
-She sat you down and asked you, very politely of course, what the fuck was going on
-You explained your condition, how not everyone who has narcolepsy has cataplexy, but it’s still a sign of narcolepsy
-For weeks after your talk, you would find books strung about the house on the subject of both illnesses, realizing that she wanted to learn every little aspect about your illnesses so she could understand you better
-And that just??? Melted your heart??? She just wanted to help you???
-Mother Hen Jaehee™ to the rescue, when the two of you go out anywhere, she’s latched onto your arm
-Everyone thinks the two of you are absolutely adorable, just showing your love and walking close with one another, but in reality she’s just holding you up in case your knees give out
-At first you were afraid to fall and potentially drag her down as well, but sure enough, when your knees buckled the moment you heard about Zen’s new role, you expected to hit the floor but you were at the exact height as before? You looked over to find her holding you up- you completely forgot she does judo; of course she can hold you up! And she will from now on <3
-Often when you wake up, you seem to think there are things there when there aren’t
-This time, you had hallucinated that there’s a dog next to the bed when /obviously/ there isn’t
-Why would he let a dog into his penthouse let alone the bedroom, where his dear Elizabeth lives?
-He wrote it off as you were still dreaming, but it happened… a lot more than seemed normal?
-It happened when you woke up, when you went to bed, and when you’re tired in general
-Whatever it was you saw would frighten you to the point that you’d cry, sometimes a scream would leave your lips and it frightened him?
-Instead of asking you directly, he called multiple doctors and experts hoping to get a clue as to why this would be happening, he didn’t want to ask you straight, just in case it upset you to talk about it
-Once he got his answer, he sat
you down for a talk. He gently explained that he now knew what you were
suffering from, and he presented you with a slideshow
what a NERD
-He suggested talking to a professional, trying out some medications (which he had so many slides explaining the benefits and downfalls he had found in each and different kinds), things of the sort
-But overall, he held you close because he wanted you to know that you were the most important person in his life and he needed to show you that he was there for you, no matter what. You stuck with him through his struggles and he wouldn’t even think about not being there for yours. When you have your hallucinations, he’s there to calmly talk you through it and remind you that he’s there, and that it’s just an illusion, no matter where you are and no matter when it happens to you
-He worked all through the night every now and then, usually up several days in a row
-At night he’d put you to bed, watching you fall fast asleep in almost an instant
-But it seemed as if you would come into the computer room about 10 minutes after?
-The timing was infrequent, but without a doubt, you would wake up often and come in to sit with him
-Every single time, he would put you back in bed and watch you fall fast asleep, checking if you were actually asleep. You were but? Why were you waking up?
-Maybe you couldn’t sleep without him there? He moved his work to a laptop, sitting with you, hoping his presence would calm you enough to sleep through the night
-You still woke up though? And you were completely fine each time, too. As if you had been awake all along, though he knew you weren’t
-So with a quick background check of your medical records /thanks saeyoung/ he noticed you suffered from narcolepsy, which is associated with sleep disruption, meaning you’d constantly wake up and would usually have terrible sleep quality
-Every time you woke up, he woke up. He didn’t want you to have to suffer through it alone!
-Of course he offered to take you to get medication or something to help, but if you didn’t agree, he would do whatever he could to make sure you weren’t alone! He just wanted to help! And if that meant he missed out on sleep too, then so be it. It’s not like he hasn’t been up for weeks at a time before anyway!
-The first time he woke you up, he noticed the absolute terror in your eyes and how you struggled to breathe
-“MC? MC are you alright? Sweetheart, what’s wrong?!” he panicked, trying to get you to say /something/
-It was an agonizing few minutes until you could take a full breath, sitting up suddenly, almost colliding your forehead with Jihyun’s jaw
-Your heart was pounding and your breath was ragged, he held you close and whispered comforting words, rubbing your back gently
-Once you’ve calmed down, he was ready to hear your explanation
-You have narcolepsy, and sometimes, that meant you would wake up or fall asleep with a burst of sleep paralysis and it was terrifying
-He felt?? So bad??? He knew he couldn’t do anything to prevent this from happening, but he was still upset for his love!
-From then on, whenever you fall asleep or whenever you wake up, he’s right there, ready to hold you close and comfort you
-He’s always making you some tea to help you relax before bed, and he wakes up early just to make you some in the morning
-Not once does he ever push you to even try talking or moving when this happens. He’s researched many times to understand this phenomenon of yours just so he wouldn’t make the wrong move and make it worse!
-The first morning you had a hallucination he jumped straight out of bed and was ready to Fight™
-You scared the hell out of him?? Why the fuck were you screaming??
-Looking at you like you were crazy, he was attempting to wake you up fully, only to make you scream again
-“AAA, MC, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU”
-Now you were awake, but still screaming because this time your damn boyfriend scared you to death
-Once the Scream Fest™ was over, the two of you sat in bed, now just staring awkwardly at each other until you spoke up
-You told him that you get these hallucinations sometimes when you’re exhausted due to your narcolepsy. Not to mention you tend to… fall asleep often during the day because you don’t sleep well at night
-Which he understood, but it took a very long time for him to get used it. There would be times that you had screamed and he’s almost screaming right with you. But he did get over it and now he just runs his hand through your hair and coos at you softly until you calm down
-During the day, he makes sure you take some naps throughout the day because he knows you aren’t sleeping at night and he’d rather avoid you passing out on him randomly through the day. He read online that napping could help!
-He uses it as an excuse to take a nap as well. He says he’s holding you because he wants to make sure you actually take a nap and not just pretend, but in reality he wants to make sure you’re okay and he wants to be there when you wake up so he can comfort you
