True! Very very true! Platonic soulmates with matching tattoos cause yeah, we get tattoos too! (This might be because of other fandoms I’m in but it’s mostly tattoo fics I’ve read)
Wonder if it’d be similar in the AU - like the assumption on what a soulmate meant… hmm, ok, that is suddenly more interesting to write.
I headcanon Stan as ace so - Stan who knows he doesn’t like anyone like that, he’s affectionate and flirty even but that’s it.
Stan hiding his tattoo as he gets older because of all the implications that people put on to it- what people are looking forward to makes him nervous, but he can’t say anything because that’s just not what you do. Stan probably not looking into it because he’s been told what the tattoo means and just deciding he never wanted to meet his soulmate.
Stan not realising that his soulmate, whoever it is, would never make him uncomfortable/would probably feel the same.
