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.
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 !
Ngl I am still not over Lavi's breakdown/mindrape or however you would like to describe ep 86- I just. Protect Lavi. Precious son. Just. His reaction to seeing the Ace of Spades fall while he was keeping up so well with fighting back against the illusions and once he sees it how it goes downhill from then-- In real world, Allen HUGGING HIM AND TRYING TO BRING HIM BACK TO HIS SENSES AND LENALEE HELPLESSLY SCREAMING FROM SIDE FOR HIM TO STOP AND ONCE BACK IN CONTROL LAVI FIRE SEALING HIMSELF AAAAA
IKR?! In my opinion, Lavi is one of the characters that develops the most along the series. He starts off with his optimistic and carefree facade. He knows his duty and bears always in mind that he cannot develop feelings for his comrades in the Order. But he is human and goes through a lot of suffering with all of them, and sharing pain and suffering always creates bonds. I think when he firsts realizes this is after Allen’s “death”, during the battle in the ship, when he is looking at the Ace of Spades from Allen’s deck of cards. And yeah, that scene you described, I would say is the climax of Lavi’s realization of his true feelings. It was honestly one of the most painful scenes for me to watch. Lavi is such a complex and human character (which is ironic because he is not supposed to develop human feelings) and i wanna see more about his past and present and future and everything and that is why HE WILL ALWAYS BE MY FUCKIN FAVOURITE (+ he is so cute damn) HOSHINO PLEASE BRING HIM BACK SAFE AND SOUND I BEG YOU
Lavi find Allen, but Nea still using Allen’s body, so he knows that this person here isn’t his friend Allen. It’s Nea, the 14th.
Nea saw the bookman jr and starts to laugh like crazy and say “I’ll kill you, bookman jr. And after you, the old man too.”, and Lavi just run and hugs tight Nea.
Nea didn’t know what to do, but he slownly stop to laugh and tears start to drop by his eyes and then he was crying instead of laugh, his eyes come back to the normal color and Allen hugs him back, and so tight.
I find it VERY foreshadowing that all of his friends have gone parasitic mode and bookman specifically warned lavi not to go that far with his innocence. I BET SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN. also if he is canonically the heart i will cry happy tears.
s A M E.
Seriously tho, at least for the main, each innocences had a huge importance and exposition and all of them have a profond bond with the innocence.
Between Kanda and the innocence which had been forced onto him for years, being able to do illusion, knowing that Illusion is an important theme of Kanda’s storyline.
Between Allen whichs innocence is getting closer to mirror de Earl, which can be an echo of his theme of identity, of the choices between human and exorcist he has to get through.
Between Lenalee which major plot point was how she hated the Innocence because of all the pain it brought, to the point the innoence left her powerless to the point she came to accept the innocence inside her.
Not to mention others characters like Miranda and Krory which’s innocences had played huge parts in their characters developments, giving us parallelism between their own situations.
…. And Lavi’s bond with his innocence is what?
He’s one of the main character, and yet, despite all this focus on the innocence, he’s the one who’s not developing himself around it. He’s the one guy who’s shown to us with a powerful handy innocence that Lavi doesn’t know how to use entierely. His innocence sure played a little part in his storyline when he burnt himself with it (when he burnt himself with all the strength of his heart in order to take back controle), but unlike all the others, it’s not like the innocence is even that connected to Lavi. Hell his fight in the Ark’s arc is a mental fight, a fight he gets through by letting his heart speak - when he uses his innocence, it’s either clumsily, against Jasdebi to the point of being called out as “not training his innocence”, used unconsciously without him to realize (hell he doesn’t even remember using it when he burnt himself) and unconsciously it reacted to his emotions. (broken spirit and spirit taking back alike)
Which IS worth noticing for the character who’s told to get the further away from the innocence, from the exorcists.
By the end of the Attack on the Order’s arc, the Earl confirm that the Heart had been retrived and that its probably hiding, creating dummies hearts around it in order to hide itself.
And at this point of the story, who had major innocence changes?
Allen when he almost died- to which Lavi didn’t react quite well. There’s a lot of focus on Lavi’s grief. The Innocence helped Allen back on his feet. Hell, I find it even fun that Allen evolved his innocence into a weapon that could not hurt humans when Lavi was having his mind getting broken, manipulable, aka, vulnerable. Timing right. I’m not saying that if Lavi has the Heart it might have been a way for the Heart to protect itself but that’s exactly what I’m saying, by the Ark’s arc I feel like from the two changes Allen’s innocence lived through, one was benificial to Allen and one was benificial to Lavi.
Lenalee during her fight against the Level 3 and when she insisted to go back into fight - both moments Lavi was here for. I may go too meta thinking that maybe Lavi was aware that Lenalee didn’t want any part of the war thus resulting in the innocence paralyzing Lenalee - because that’s an improvement right? On this part I am not sure of myself so don’t quote me on that one, but what I know though? Is that Lavi was here when Lenalee made it clear she wanted to go back in fight. At first he wanted to stop her, and there’s /ways too much focus on Lavi/ in that talk. Thanksfully it doesn’t remove from Lenalee’s focus, but Lavi’s focus is still odd, especially when he keeps silent about it. And that’s only when the Innocence accepts Lenalee again. Yet she showed her desperation earlier. When Lavi was unconsious in the Ark.Oops.
And Krory, while minor, still had an odd change of innocence, of the blood acting by its own will. I cannot write such a huge work of words for this one as I admit I payed less attention to this one - but nevertheless he is a close friend of Lavi, who was in an iminant danger Lavi was aware of and worried about. And who also drank Lavi’s blood so in case of being close…
While I can’t justify Kanda’s evolution without being too meta about it and gets much more on theories that goes my way (such as Kanda’s relationship with the innocence was too weird in itself for changing before Kanda dealt with his demons, o that Lavi might have heard about what happened with Alma while in torture, but I admit I have no proof to back up it all), all of those previous changes are heavily interesting, especially when they all happened before the Earl said “the Heart is hiding itself by making dummies” - and at this point it really seems to point toward Lavi.
Not to mention a lots of others analysis on themes, on Lavi’s identity, on the heavy focus on the Heart of Lavi as a Bookman, on the numberous parallelism between him and Allen (the given name being different from their birthname, but embrassing their latest identity, the heavy link of the Ace of spade which had been analysed already too (it’s somewhere in my Heart Theory tag), two people who had consent over what they decided to do with their lives (Bookman/Exorcist) the dilema between two part of themselves, as the Exorcist/Noah and the Exorcist/Bookman) that would brought to a bigger intencity if Lavi’s relatonship with the innocence is the one with the Heart - Especially when he’s the one who’s being told to get the further away from the conflcit while staying close.
If the Heart was to hide, who else than the one who’s supposed to be a silent watcher but can’t help but get involved, right?
I honestly feel so strongly for this theory this isn’t even funny anymore. I want Lavi to develop his storyline around his innocence, because until then I would honestly be haunted by the fact he’s linked to the Heart in a way or another.
