(・◇・) What are your headcanons and thoughts about how the chocobros hug someone?
I did the audio here: Listen to me read this aloud, and extra things too. :D
Written copy and gifs for those who don’t want to listen to me.
Noctis: Noctis is a awkward hugger for sure. He doesn’t know how long to hug or if it’s okay to hug closely with a female. Noctis doesn’t want to be hugged too tightly as his back injury flares up easily. If he’s close to them he’ll do a full body hug, he likes to snuggle with his s/o in a deep embrace often falling asleep that way. He loves to bury his face in their neck falling asleep quickly. Most people want to hug him as he’s the Prince, it’s like should they?? So when someone does he get really shy and nervous about it, a lot of blushing.
I see Prompto being a emotional hugger, like all day everyday hugger.He
likes to hug for any occasion would rather hug than shake hands. He
feels he can understand a persons true meaning by hugging versus the
traditional hand shake. He know how long to properly hug someone without
it being weird. Prompto likes to bury his face in the crook of their
neck bringing that extra sense of closeness to each other. He may be
small but he can handle bear hugs.
Gladio well I think he’s not knowingly gives bear hugs but it happens.
Gotta blame those muscles. Most people get buried in his chest (oh the
torture) as he’s so tall. He’s big on the side hugs for friends. Since
he knows it’s uncomfortable to be hugged like that for some. But a s/o
gets the whole smooshed in the chest hug, knowing that they feel safe in
his arms. He loves hugging his s/o when they are resting on his chest, laying in bed, they are so small on his chest, it’s just too cute he needs to hug them.
Ignis: He’s a if the mood calls for it hug. As for Ignis they are intimate actions. So if you get one means you are really close to him. This means most of the time the person he’s hugging is in distress, so it’s a shoulder to cry on hug. He is fine with hugging the person as long as they want to. Ignis is fond of rubbing soft patterns on their backs as a way to help relax them. He’ll whisper soft reassuring things in their ears.
Ravus: The boy is a awkward hugger too, Luna is the only one that has hugged him beyond his mother. So if approached for a hug Ravus keeps his main body fair as possible, not wanting to actually touch them. He’s wary of his magitek arm wrapping around them, what if part of it got tangled in the hair? Or he squeezes too tightly? So hugs with him are very quick and barely there. You would have to attack him in a hug and if you weren’t a s/o (or Luna) you might not make it out of alive from that attack hug. A s/o could get away with it but doesn’t mean he’ll give them a full hug, just means he won’t freak out about it.
Nyx: He just wants to hug everyone. More people at a time makes it even better. Nyx knowingly gives bear hugs, squeezing people tightly calling them pansies if they can’t handle “The Hero Hug”. Nyx doesn’t care what sex you are or if it’s a appropriate time to hug, he’s going to squeeze tightly body pressed against yours holding tightly. In his line of work sometimes you might not see that person for a next time so expressing his feelings for them with a hug is important.
Cor: He rather not hug, like if he did he would be admitting “feelings” and such. He doesn’t feel them professional at all. But when he does hug they are fantastic hugs! They are body melding hugs, like the two of you just became one person. He’ll stay hugging that person for a while but definitely knows when to stop hugging that it “is weird now lets stop or otherwise I might say something about you”. He loves to snuggle and hold his s/o tight while reading paper work, but will never admit it or ask for it, they need to initiate.
