I was thinking about if Luca or Klaus asked them something sexual like "How far have you guys gone?" or something (then blushing and stammering ensues). But I would really be happy with anything that you do! So feel free to do anything you want
In response to karrotstix‘s prompt, which was delightful. We never really see Klaus in Elias’ route, even though there’s a lot of Elias in the Klaus route, so I thought it would be fun to show the elder brother’s reaction to Elias’ new relationship.
This morphed into quite a long production, so I hope you guys enjoy! Spoilers for both routes.
If it wasn’t obvious already, this is Elias x mc.
Please give me more prompts! This is too much fun. Just drop them in my ask.
All old prompts are being housed on my account on AO3.
Elias was late.
Klaus stood near the train station, scanning the street for any sign of his brother. The two younger Goldstein brothers made a trip home every so often on the weekends. But this was a first – his uptight little brother was always punctual, if not early. At least Elias had sent a magic note, though the hastily scrawled message – “Running late – meet you at station” – raised more questions than answers.
Finally he caught sight of Elias, weaving through the street, his blond hair glinting in the waning daylight. Klaus checked the station clock – only 5 minutes before the train left – and leveled a glare at his younger brother that Elias could undoubtedly feel from all the way across the street.
“What happened?” Klaus demanded as Elias finally approached. “Did you get lost?!”
“I sent a note, didn’t I?” his brother replied, a little defensively, before ducking his head. “Sorry to make you wait…there was something last minute.”
They made their way on and into an empty train car. Having put away his bags and sat down, Klaus was preparing to launch a verbal assault on his brother when something caught his attention. “What is that sweet smell – cookies?” He frowned at Elias. “Do you smell cookies?”
Elias sheepishly reached into his pack and withdrew a bulging pastel bag, tied with a pink ribbon. At the sight of the unexpectedly feminine packaging, Klaus’ eyebrows nearly rose into his hairline.
“There’s one for you too,” Elias added, his cheeks turning pink. He reluctantly pulled out another bag, and tossed it to Klaus.
Klaus caught the package, turning it over in his hands with a smirk. “So my little brother has found himself a girlfriend.”
Predictably Elias’ face flamed. “S-so what?! There’s nothing wrong with that!”
Klaus laughed. “I didn’t say there was anything wrong with it. Who is the lucky girl?” Then his eyes narrowed astutely. “Could it be…Clara Hart?”
“How did you know?!”
Klaus rolled his eyes and began untying the ribbon on his bag of cookies. “She’s your Buddy, isn’t she? And if it wasn’t obvious already, did you forget I sometimes teach your class, dumbhead? You think I don’t notice when you can’t take your eyes off a girl? You’re terrible at hiding it.”
Elias groaned, which was confirmation enough of Klaus’ suspicions.
“But really, Clara Hart?” Klaus continued. “I’ve seen her grades. They’re miserable. They’re dragging you down, little brother. How’d you end up with such a worthless girlfriend?”
Klaus bit into a cookie just as Elias scowled darkly. “Don’t call her worthless.”
The cookie’s flavor burst into Klaus’ mouth like a ray of sunshine. A crumbly texture with a soft center, a sweetness that balanced the richness of the chocolate chips, and a subtle hint of salt which complemented everything else perfectly. And it was still warm.
It was incredible. It was the best cookie he’d ever had.
“Not worthless,” Klaus corrected, eyes wide in shock. He stared into the bag in disbelief. “If only she were half as good at magic as she seems to be at making cookies…”
