I wanted to do a little thing for the creator/artist of D.Gray man for her bday :) It’s been a difficult year & re-reading this series reminded me why I chose the dream of living the life of an artist/comic creator. Because the way I feel about her work and her series is the same way I want to be able to reach others through my own work. I hope that her health has gotten better! I wish her much success in whatever she chooses to do & thank you :’) ♥
any headcanons of lavi, tyki, and allen when they're jealous of their crush, but haven't even confessed to them yet?
Phew~Finally got the time to sit down and do this. Gearing up for the other requests.
Sorry about the weird headcanon-scenario-ish format though.
✤ He was somehow everywhere you went. Well, except for bathrooms and rooms cause that would be absolutely awkward. But you would always bump into him around and about. He’s stubbornly claiming it’s a coincidence but he knows that he’s lying.
✤ It had been quite a long time since the two of you met and it was getting harder and harder to avoid the feeling he gets when he sees you or when he’s near you.
✤ It was like a delicious forbidden fruit that keeps whispering him to take a bite.
✤ He couldn’t. He wouldn’t. But he absolutely wants to.
✤ The feeling absolutely astounds him. He had thought that he had locked up his feelings long ago but you were unravelling it thread by thread just like his friends at the Black Order.
✤ So in the end he accepted the fact that he loves you but he was still on the fence on making a move. It was a big decision. One that could get them both in trouble, especially with Bookman.
✤ So he was content with just watching you afar and talking to you every chance he got…until he saw someone flirting with you and you flirting back. (He was confused, were you flirting or were you being kind and courteous kind of flirting? But it really hurt him that you were treating this person with the same treatment as him.)
✤ He almost want to walk away. But then you caught sight of him, “Lavi? Is that you?” He had no choice to backtrack and walk up to you, pulling on a cheery face and rubbing the back of his neck even when his chest felt painfully light and his heart wavering.
✤ The other person gave him a once over and (for that moment, Lavi felt uncomfortably bare) a triumphant smirk grew on the person’s lips. It was almost as if they felt that he was no competition and for some reasons Lavi did not like that.
✤ Especially when that person stepped closer to you in front of him. Lavi’s smile tightened. It was just a step, he would deal with it, wait, they’re reaching out their hand to brush your shoulders and your ears while complimenting your ear piercings? Oh hell no.
✤ Lavi grabbed your hands pulling you away, “Hey__________, I have something interesting to show you.” The other person tried to protest “Welp, it was nice meeting you.” And the two of you were gone.
✤ It was around then when he decided to confide his feelings for you. Whether you accept him or not, it was your choice.
✥ He had his eye on you always. Whether he’s reading or crossing the hallways or from windows, his eyes seem to search for you like opposite poles of the magnet.
✥ He always catch himself whenever he did that, almost alarmed by the growing feeling in his chest. It was warm, like the feeling he had when he spent his days his three human buddies but this was different. It was mildly uncomfortable like he had reached down into his own heart and squeezed it.
✥ He had talked to you once or twice, all in teasing terms and before he knew it, he was lingering more and more and became a constant in your life.
✥ But he dare not declare his feelings for you but let it slip out in doses of affections from winks to teasing remarks, all which you brushed off as merely jokes. And it secretly vexes him.
✥ But nothing vexes him more than standing there and watching as you stood there laughing with another person.
✥ His blood was practically boiling as that person (with obvious intentions) reached out to brush your hair from your face.
✥ “Tyki?” Before he had even realised it, he was there right next to you, with one arm over your shoulder and the other hand tightly gripping the person’s wrist. He glare was sharp and blazing, “Would you mind keeping your hands off what’s mine?”
✥ Your suitor would be flustered and run off stuttering.
✥ Tyki let them go even if his entire instinct was hell bent one causing bodily harm on the suitors.
✥ The worst part was that it kept happening over and over again. He knows that you’re attractive in your own little way (you charming little thing) and it pleases him that others likes you too but can they stop trying to hunt his prey? (You were already his, you just haven’t realised it yet.)
✥ And every single time he rescued you, you would always brush it off as something a friend will do.
✥ But this time he had enough.
✥ When you laughed, his fingers wrapped around your chin, the tips brushing against your cheeks and a smirk curling at the edges of his lips. “Will a friend do this?” He closed the distance between your lips.
✦ He had met you years ago. And he’s still astounded by your ability to show your kindness despite how dark people can be. When the going gets tough, he kind of thought back to you and how you grit your teeth and go through it with patience, and he felt like he could get through this too.
✦ He tries to show up whenever he could which was not often but you always send him a welcoming smile that made him feel as if he was home. He realised, that you were his home.
✦ And the the 14th happened. It was a blow to him and everything he stand for vanished leaving him lost in the haze of confusion. In that spilt moment, he had ditched Link and went to seek you out.
✦ But you weren’t there in the place the two of you usually meet. Uncomfortable emptiness filling his hollow chest. He didn’t want to give up yet. He didn’t want to go back to the Order yet, where eyes roam towards him with varying mixture of pity, wariness and fear.
✦ He went around town, searching through the shops and the crowds, hoping to catch side of you. Just when he was about to give up, he spotted you. Joy flickered to life in his chest as he pushed forward, getting closer to your silhouette with every step.
✦ “_____-” His voice died in his throat as he caught sight of another figure standing too close to you, with arms wrapping around your waist. The ache intensified as the two of you giggled.
✦ Normally, he would feel a dark prickly feeling of annoyance building on the inside and would smoothly slipped into the situation, separating anyone that tried to get handsy with you.
✦ But today wasn’t a normal day. He only felt a thousand needles punctured his bleeding heart as realisation after realisation slammed into him like a thousand bricks.
✦ You were better off without him. A person that could die at any time, a person that couldn’t be with you all around the clock and a person that may have a monster trapped in his body and a person that probably didn’t have a future.
✦ These bitter realisations sat at the base of his throat as tears pricked at the edges of his eyes, brimming but never falling. In that moment, he almost wished that he was normal, like that person. So that he could be by your side always, so he could laugh with you, so that he could…confess without feeling guilty. You didn’t deserve him, you deserve them.
✦ “Allen?” You were suddenly in front of him, he could barely see through the wall of tears, “Are you alright?”
✦ He tried to muster a smile. He couldn’t even do that properly. The tears start falling. “Oh my god, Allen, you’re crying. Here.” You reached out with your handkerchief, wiping away blobs teetering at the corner of his eyes and the angry trails down his cheeks.
✦ He realised that he never want to see you in the arms of another.
✦ He gripped your wrist gently, warmth spreading into his clammy hands and by an act of pure selfishness, the words “I love you.” tumbled from his lips.
Hey, what do you think the characters main flaws (negative) would be (like for example one could be that you get bored of people too easily?)
Hm… Well, let’s just go with the main four.
Allen is blind to shades of grey, but in a different way from Chaoji. I don’t think he finds anything unacceptable except, like, murder. He thinks that everyone is redeemable, and he will go to lengths to make sure they get a second chance, and a third, and a fourth- If people haven’t suffered from this already, they almost certainly will later.
Kanda seems to have mostly overcome his biggest flaw, tbh - his grudge-holding. After that, though- He’s too reckless. He doesn’t think before throwing himself into situations, not about his safety or about others’, or about the consequences to follow, any of it. He has his objective, and he goes for the most straightforward path, right away. We see a lot of this in the Alma arc; he even mentions it himself once (albeit in a context where it’s really not his fault.)
Lenalee is a little simplistic in her thinking, probably. Not in that she doesn’t understand things - it’s canon that she’s the most intelligent of the OT4 - but she’s so straightforward that if something is not of apparent practical use, she sort of just- dismisses it. Sometimes this is helpful, but in the long run it’s most certainly not. (I imagine she hasn’t paid a second thought to the possibility that her Boots are now draining her life force.)
Lavi is like, chronically indecisive. He has a lot of trouble committing to a path without regrets. This is literally his entire character arc. He’ll make a decision, certainly, and he’ll definitely think it through, but he will never stop wondering, what if I did the other thing?
The last one I did was the Haikyuu!! cafe in collaboration with Animate and I remember it was really impressive and the atmosphere was nice. Since DGM isn’t aired yet, there’s a lot less material for the decoration and everything. But still, I liked it.
About the menu, let me tell you I had a hell of a time deciding what to order. The thing is, this kind of cafe are usually expensive, so you have to choose carefully. The one dish I knew I wanted to try was the Timcampy Omurice (because yes, if you don’t know food and drinks are all made to match the characters)
I got it. It was cute AND tasty. For the others dishes we had sandwiches for Allen, Soba for Kanda (surprising uh ?), Yakiniku for Lavi (he has great taste), Hamburger for the Earl and some crab pasta for Tyki.
I’M SORRY TIM DON’T HATE ME ! For dessert, I choose Allen’s Mitarashi Dango. Look at how good it looks !
I ate miratashi dango before. And I’m always amazed about how Allen can manage to eat about thirty of this in one meal. Because it doesn’t look like it, but once you’ve eaten two or three, you’re full. (Btw it’s matcha ice cream, red beans paste and wipped cream in the corner) The two others dessert were a pumpkin pie for Link (it looked yummy) and a S’more parfait for Lavi (was a sparkling candle on it).
I tried two different drinks. The one above is Allen’s mango frappe. I love mango, and since it’s really hot in Japan right now, it was cool and sweet. The other drink I tried was blue. Piece of advice : there’s always a blue drink in collaboration cafe, and i’s always good. Order it. Bonus, this is the only thing on the menu linked to two characters. It was called “Yuu and Alma’s blue ice”.
And I have to tell you, I nearly chocked on my food at some ponit, because a girl next to me ordered Cross’ drink (which was called Pink Lady fyi) and the waiter gave her the drink, and then came back and said “it was add to Allen’s debts” and then handed her a piece of paper with debts on it. And I was laughing so much because godammit Cross Marian !!! Lavi’s drink (tapioca and blood orange drink) was pretty popular and Komui’s drink (you could read “Komubitan D” on the menu and I was like noooope, we all know what happened last time) was served in a fricking beaker ! Road, Link, the Earl, Lenalee and Timcampy also had drinks.
The fun thing when you order in a cafe like that, is that with every dishes you get little pictures or posters of the characters. And then the customers look around to exchange the ones they want or not.
In conclusion (sorry for the long ass post) it was great and worth the money, and I’ll be back in three days to tell you about the premiere in Shinjuku !
