Hello! I love your blog, and just saw the Birthday ask, mine is actually coming up really soon and to say the least... I'm not excited. So I was curious as to how the RFA + V + Saeran would react/what they would do when they find out the MC really, really dislikes her birthday (Due to crappy birthday experiences for the past several years)
sorry it took a while!! happy (late????) birthday, anon!!!!!!
-it’s not that he doesn’t care that MC hates their own birthday
-bc he super does
-it’s just that he’s determined to change that
-he wants MC to anticipate their birthday, rather than dread it
-because…….. it’s the anniversary of the day that MC came into being
-it’s one of the major things that brought MC into his life
-and he feels so incredibly lucky that they’re here, in his life!!
-but i mean,,,, if MC insists that they rly just wanna,, Not. do anything. for their bday,
-he won’t push
-he just cares so much about MC
-he’s not sure he understands but…..
-he just wants to make MC smile
-even if MC doesn’t look forward to their birthday, dreads it, even
-one smile from them
-would be a victory better than winning at any event in LOLOL
-so, even if MC doesn’t want to celebrate he still does stuff for them
-full on Domestic Yoosung
-cooks a shit ton of food (and bakes a cake!!!)
-draws them a soothing bubble bath
it’s rly fuckin nice omg thanks 4 ur hands yoosung
-understands, for the most part
-she hasn’t looked forward to her own birthday for years
-not since her parents…..
-but still wants to at the v least spend some time with MC
-just time together
-prolonged bath time tbh
-comfort foods delivered right to their home
-cozying up in blankets on the couch
-hot drinks (and maybe some cocktails or something lbr)
-the watch Homeward Bound and both cry
this was a poor choice let’s watch Zen’s musicals instead g o d
-it’s a low key, kinda nice day
-he asks all the questions
-wants to understand the reasoning behind this hatred
MC pls he just wants to spoil u
-but if MC doesn’t want to do anything for their birthday, then he respects their wishes
-tho he does do a few little things
-breakfast in bed
-a small gift
-a single rose
-aaaand the day after MC’s birthday he takes them out on a fancy date bc
-“Since you didn’t want to do anything on your birthday, I figured the day after would be preferable. Was I wrong?”
-he is actually nervous pls b kind
y is he so precious wat t h fUkc
-first of all he listens
-hasn’t rly celebrated his own birthday
-especially not in his own childhood and since leaving Saeran
-he makes the shittiest powerpoint presentation for MC about all the reasons they should celebrate their birthday and look forward to it
-first slide is just photos of cakes
-they aren’t even all birthday cakes, and the photos are all diff sizes and resolutions and they’re all crammed into the slide and sitting on top of each other it’s a mess
-next slide is one stock photo of a wrapped gift box and the caption “P R E S E N T S”
-the bg can actually be seen and it is the most eye-searing orange with gradient to one corner of bright-as-the-sun yellow
-it’s physically painful
-he did this on purpose the lil shit
-one of the slides is just text.
-it’s statistics. the probability of MC’s birth, etc. and how that makes them a miracle
-there’s definitely at least three slides of cat photos
-one is entirely Elizabeth the 3rd
-even if MC still doesn’t want to do anything for their birthday, Saeyoung would just be glad to have gotten a laugh out of them about the shitty powerpoint
-doesn’t understand the appeal of birthday parties
-too many people
-too much noise
-all that shit to clean up afterward
-would much rather spend time with just MC
doesn’t want to share? MC’s attention???
-he kind of gets the appeal of birthdays in general
-like……. a day devoted to someone’s life
-but he ends up treating MC’s birthday mostly like any other day, except that he’s more cuddly and less caustic
-on this day the birth of his SO….. he just wants to please them
-but don’t expect him to bend over backwards for them
-low key upset about this
-high key upset for MC
-like……… how dare??
-how dare bad things happen to his sweetheart MC on their birthday????
h e c k
-insists that they can make new memories for their birthdays from now on!!
-after all the past does not have to define the future
-asks what MC wants to do for their birthday and makes sure that thing happens
-small get-together of just them and their friends? he organizes it!!
-a walk in the park?? happens!!
-staying in doing nothing, just existing? he is for it!!
-as long as MC is happy!!!!
