Request: “Paladin’s reaction when they and their s/o are kissing- make out session is starting and s/o’s glasses starts to fog up from the heat? And after kissing a while s/o is like “babe I can’t see.. ”
“Hey I don’t remember if I sent this to you a while back or I just imagined it lolol. But I was wondering if you could do a fluffy scene with the paladins and their s/o like they are having a moment kissing but then their s/o just bursts out laughing?”
A/N: this is me…. my glasses fog up over everythingg
Their hands were in your hair, your lips moved in sync. Everything around you was gone, time stopped, and the world stood still. You felt your glasses sliding down your nose. You peeked out of one eye, and felt something build up in your chest. You pulled apart harshly, a series of giggles falling from your lips.
“Babe, I can’t see!”
He’s a little offended and very confused
Whyy are you laughing
When he sees that your glasses are fogged up, he starts laughing, too
And then you’re both just sitting there cackling
It’s pretty great
Very offended, very confused
He sees that your glasses are fogged up, and like the suave man he is, he pulls them off and goes right back to kissing you
It gets very ~interesting~
He’s not so offended, and he sees why almost immediately, so he’s not so confused
He starts laughing with you
And then he takes your glasses and puts them on and starts kissing you again
“How do you do this I don’t understand”
He’s so confused
Why are you laughing all of a sudden??
And then he sees your glasses
And everything is clear (lol i hate myself//punsss)
It’s very cute because he takes your glasses and wipes them off and gives them back to you

What the Chocobros, Cor and Nyx would do at the Moogle-Chocobo Carnival with their S/O
Requests are open!
Noctis would want to take home as many of the fishing prizes as possible, his s/o would have the patience and time to sit with him and take notes on the catches that he’d made. Not to mention when actually wandering around the carnival it’s completely up to his s/o to protect him from the daemon known as Kenny Crow - he’s not exactly happy when his s/o just bursts into laughter instead when a supposed Kenny statue is actually a person and scares Noct.
You can guarantee that Prompto would want to find the hidden moogles with their s/o, dragging them around the whole of Altissia in order to find them and win the prize, you can also know that he’d pride himself on taking as many photos of his s/o enjoy themselves and cooing over all the baby chocobos.
Gladiolus would insist on trying to win his s/o as many cute plushies as they want, it’s kind of a pride thing when it turns out that whack-a-cactuar is the one game that he can’t win against and spends most of the day demanding to beat it so he can win that prize of a cute yet giant chocobo plush for his s/o or Iris.
If you think that Ignis wouldn’t try all the different carnival food, you’re wrong, his s/o would be stuffed silly after spending the day at the different food stalls and restaurants, he’d definitely be coming up with plenty of new recipes with his s/o after their trip.
Cor would be dragged to the carnival by their s/o, you can tell that he’d be avoiding participating in literally anything that would be out of his comfort zone… But when he’s caught by the mascots, he does dance with his s/o, despite being all embarrassed by it.
Finally, Nyx would definitely want to find all the medallions in order to get as many prizes as possible with their s/o, there’s a slight amount of bragging rights he wants since he set up a versus match on who gets the most prizes between him and Libertus. Spending the night in the luxury hotel and seeing the fireworks with his s/o make it all worth it in the end.
IDW wtarsream, jazz, mtmte rung, Megatron, drift, and swerve reaction to their bot s/o being turned into a sparkling. And every time they leave the room , go somewhere their s/o can't see them or hands over to someone else their s/o burst into to tears and won't stop wailing unless they are carrying them even then there would still be some tears
Starscream is Frazzled. He’s one of those stressed-out single parents who have so much to do and no time to do it, and the baby is crying, and the phone is ringing off the hook, and oh no the soup is bUBBLING OVER-! He calls for Wheeljack to please figure out a way to get you back to normal. There’s really no one he trusts enough to hand you off to so you’re on his hip for the entire day. You owe him once you’re back to normal!
Jazz figures out he can keep you from crying with his music. He plays the radio for you on the way to the nearest medic. He’s good with kids, so it’s not hard for him to take care of you, but he can’t hide how scared he is that you might be stuck like this. He’s shaky and dotes over you until he finds a cure. When you’re back to adulthood he falls over in relief- and for a nap.
Rung is calm. Taking care of sparklings isn’t hard, and there’s plenty of weird science on this ship to get you back to normal. He takes you to both Brainstorm and Perceptor, then takes you back to his habsuite to give them time to work. While the cure is being made he shows you his ships and plays patty-cake with you until you’re tuckered out. Then he feeds you and puts you down for a nap. Later, after you’ve been cured, he brings up having sparklings with you.
Megatron is a mixture of worried/holy slag/tired of everything. The whole time he’s protective of you and won’t let anyone else hold you. He even keeps you in his lap while Ratchet checks you over. No one messes with him while he’s this on-edge, and a cure is made as quickly as possible. The whole crew sighs in relief when you’re back to normal.
Drift doesn’t know how to take care of sparklings. Why are you crying? Are you hungry? Tired? He can’t even hold you right. Ratchet pretty much has to stay beside him all day because Drift is clueless but doesn’t want to leave you alone. Eventually he kind of enjoys baby you. Your giggles are adorable and look- you’re trying to put your pede in your mouth! How cute! After Brainstorm fixes you up Drift immediately brings up having a family. You tell him you’ll discuss it later- after you both get a shower and a nap.
Swerve has seen this one movie where the exact thing happened and it was awesome- oh. Oh no no no, don’t cry! He panics and runs to the medbay. He is now also crying. Help, his s/o is a baby what does he do?? Until you’re cured he’s doting mother hen- and even afterward he still hovers a bit.
Could I request a continuation to the cheating hc you did previously?
Of course you can
sweet soul 💕 I’m happy you liked it!
For everyone else, Nonnie is referring to this post 😉 If you haven’t
read it, I highly recommend it
He finally stops screaming the moment his s/o is slapping his face with all
their might and his head flies to the side. In his blood-red anger, he didn’t even
see s/o approaching him
Bakugou is silent for a moment, taking in a sharp breath and clenching his
His vision is still tunneled, but he eventually realizes his s/o standing in
front of him with a flood of tears running down their cheeks and for the first
time this day, he is confused
“Why are you crying fucker? I should be the one crying here, but you are honestly
not worth a single tear”, he says while he still hasn’t realized what is going
His s/o gives him the most heartbroken look ever, explaining their situation
in a tiny, silent voice, showing him a disappointed face. S/o thought he trusts
them and they are actually afraid of him now
When his anger starts to ease and all the little pieces are falling together
he’s ashamed of himself and his heart is shattered. He said all those horrible
things to them
Balling his hand into a fist, he turns around and leaves without a single
word, he knows he fucked up and that a simple apology is far from being enough,
if this ever can be fixed again
The moment he sees the guilt flashing behind his s/o’s eyes, he thinks he
hit the nail right at the top
However, his mind can’t really comprehend when they flash him that defenseless,
lost look “So this is why you were making all those strange remarks?” and their
body shivers a little more with every word
The atmosphere at that moment is so tense, one could cut it with a knife
and his whole body starts trembling when his s/o tells him the truth and adds
that they are disappointed because Todoroki didn’t talk to them instead
He can see now that they are hurt and he realizes he’s the one being guilty
and not his partner. A wave of self-disgust shakes his entire being, while thinking
about all the emotional pressure he put onto his s/o and he suddenly sees a
stunning resemblance to his father in himself
After that Todoroki would shut himself in his room for some time, trying
to recollect what happened and asking himself how he could turn out like this.
The guilt he is feeling is unbelievable and he wonders if he is really fit for
Shinsou waits till his s/o is a bitter puddle in front of his feet, until
he strikes the final conversation
When his s/o is all confused, burst into tears he will grab their chin and
will tell them with a sly grin that this is what they get for cheating on him
The moment it clicks in s/o’s head and their gears start turning, their
eyes grow wide before they slap him straight into his too close face
S/o will tell them how disgusted and disappointed they are by his behavior.
They always defended him when someone said anything about his quirk, but know
they believe that he’s more of a villain than he, himself, might know. Tears
still spilling from their eyes, they will tell him that it’s over and he shouldn’t
dare to face them ever again
Seeing his s/o walking away and fading into the horizon he realizes what
big of a mistake he made. Falling to his knees, clutching his hand onto the
ground he, for the first time in his life, thinks that all the voices calling
him a villain were right. Considering his actions, he feels like he has no right
to call himself a hero any longer
NDRV3 Boys- S/O being murdered in the killing game
I’m so excited for this I love writing angst im PUMPED - Mod Rantarou
“*After reading some of these* I love you but I hate you.” - Mod Kaito
He was on his way to the dining hall with Korekiyo, when he stopped.
Something smelled funny, and suspiciously familiar…
He immediately recognizes it: blood.
He almost runs to the door, wondering who it could have been, wincing slightly when he thinks about how you would be forced to go through another trial you hated.
Except when he opens the door, he realizes that you wouldn’t be attending this trial.
Your body is sprawled on the floor, a mess of skin and blood, and he doesn’t know if he’s breathing or not.
Korekiyo was the one to tell everyone, and they try to pull Shuuichi away but he refuses.
He’s shaking and it hurts to breathe but he forces himself to look through everything for clues, to find who did this.
Who did this to you. You. You.
Your name is a constant repeat on his lips, and, while he misses you so much,
he tries his best to live and help everyone with solving the murder, because deep down he knows that that is what you would have wanted.
The body announcement played, and he closed his eyes for a few seconds.
While he did hate this, all the murder and torture that was going on, he can’t help but tell himself to get used to this, as this was only going to continue.
It was only him, Kaede and Ouma, so they followed the sound of ruckus down the hall.
There were the usual sobs and pale faces, but what he wasn’t expecting were people looking at him, with pain etched across their features.
Confused, he looked for you to give you an explanation, but
you weren’t there.
A sinking feeling gathered in his stomach, but he couldn’t explain why.
After all, you weren’t in there. You weren’t. You were with him and the other two just a couple of hours ago, before you left to do some reading. You were probably still reading, right? Or maybe you fell asleep and didn’t hear the announcement?
He pushed through the people, and reached towards the door and
there you were, markings spattered all over your body, eyes empty.
He can faintly feel their hands pushing him away, the voices speaking to him sounding so far away, but all he knows is that
Ok- i need this and hope you awnser but what would mccree's reaction be to while he is smoking a cigar his S/O burst in and says "MCCREE! IS THAT A WEED?" and before he has a chance to respond they yell "IM CALLING THE POLICE" and type 911 into the microwave-
ask: anon: “What kind of drunks do you think guzma and Nanu would be?”
a/n: okay since i have no experience w drinking bc i am 17 don’t judge too hard lmao
it only takes him a few drinks to get drunk, much to everyone’s surprise.
he’s a crier. he’d lean on his s/o’s shoulder in tears, everything seeming to set him off. he’s basically a big baby when he’s drunk. + “why are you crying now, guz?” “ekans don’t have any arms, [name].” he’d nuzzle his face into their neck, his tears staining your shirt.
it’s almost impossible to get away from him when he’s drunk, he’s clinging to his s/o’s clothes, trying to hide his face.
it takes a lot to get nanu drunk. more often then not, he’s the one taking his s/o home as they stumble down the street. but on the rare occasion he does, his s/o would see a different side of him.
he’s a happy drunk!! nanu would be laughing at everything, even stupid puns from his s/o would make him burst into a fit of giggles. + take a picture, because this is one of the rare occasions where [name] will get an genuine smile out of him.
he’ll probably show pda too… like, he’ll kiss his s/o all over the face sloppily before passing out.
