Soft Rowaelin headcanons
I’m bored so here you go I’m not sure if these are any good but
- Rowan loves kissing Aelin’s neck. He’ll do it when he wakes her up, he’ll do it during sex, he’ll do it when she’s not feeling well and it always makes her feel cozy and loved
- Aelin and Rowan get so competitive over who loves who more, Rowan’ll tell Aelin he loves her just as he leaves for a trip to Ardalan, then Aelin’ll wait until he’s almost out of hearing range to say ‘love you more’ then she’ll sprint away as fast as she can so Rowan can’t ride back and say 'love you most’ (but he tries to catch her anyway)
- Rowan forgot when his birthday was bc you know he’s lived for hundreds of years so Aelin made the day they met his official birthday and she established it as a bank holiday for all of Terrasen
- On said birthday she bakes him a chocolate cake and he eats every last crumb even though it’s disgusting because that’s what they do. She then holds back his hair as he is sick for the next day.
- Once Rowan grows his hair back they braid each others hair and, even though Rowans braid is too low and loose because he’s so tall Aelin can’t reach him properly, he loves it because it’s a mark of his mate taking care of him and he always uses lavender soap to shampoo it (despite what Aelin says)
- Whenever Aelin has a nightmare about her time in Maeve’s iron coffin he wakes her up and draws her a warm bath with the bubble bath for special occasions then they bathe together and he washes her hair. Then they get out and he wraps her in a blanket on the bed and reads her favourite book to her until she goes back to sleep.
