I have a tiny peeve where people say Mora for your thoughts instead of penny for your thoughts in fics. Mostly because Mora is the name of the currency, and not the quantity of it. If you wouldn’t say Japanese Yen for your thoughts you wouldn’t say Mora for your thoughts. They have coins, it’s ok. Just say coin or penny. Please.
some random, small thoughts i had while i was in the car a few days ago. gn!reader & modern au by the wayy xD
"are you really sure about this?" you asked for the nth time, making childe turned to look at you. he just parked the car by the side of road, his hand still on the steering wheel while the other resting in the space between the two of you.
right, the typical 'stuff hot guys do', you thought. though it's true he looked extremely hot doing it (especially when his pale, toned and a bit veiny forearms were bare from when he pulled up the sleeves of the hoodie he was wearing), you internally rolled your eyes nonetheless.
"yes, babe. it's totally fine. we're almost half way to my family's house anyway. besides, teucer loves you!" he reassured with a soft smile. your eyebrows furrowed, contemplating. "but what if i'm just a bother? you even said this is going to be a 'family hangout', after all."
childe grumbled. "y/n, i said it already and i'm saying it again. you're never a bother, and you never will be. i asked you to join because you're family too." he said as his hand reached out to hold yours. you were silent for a few seconds, only staring at him but it seemed childe was not backing down so you sighed and nodded with a little smile, "okay then."
he grinned. "good. now stay put while i go buy snacks for my siblings." he said before opening the door and walking out. you watched as childe rounded the car to walk towards the convenience store.
childe was about to enter the store when he suddenly backtracked, approaching the window on your side of the car. he tapped the window a few times with a finger. after obliging his request, you raised an eyebrow in a silent 'what is it?'
"sorry i forgot to ask. anything you want, sweetheart?" he asked sheepishly, leaning against the window. you chuckled, amused at his cute expression. "no, not really. just buy anything you want. i told you there's no need to spoil me all the time." you murmured, your fingers mindlessly moved to brush a few strands of ginger hair away from his mesmerizing ocean eyes.
he hummed. "i'll still buy something for you." with with the back of his knuckle, he swiped a quick yet gentle stroke on your cheek.
you felt your heart soar at the small, loving gesture and how childe was reassuring plus considerate enough to ask what you want. not just that, even his small mumble of "lock the door," before heading back towards the convenience store made you flutter because he was just so thoughtful, prioritizing your safety.
how is he able to make you fall in love even deeper, you wonder...

Really sucks that the whole Skyward series of weapons is actually pretty decent but I’m never gonna use them because they aren’t ✨aesthetically pleasing✨ to the characters outfits I’m being very serious I was gonna roll when The Unforged comes back but damn it doesn’t fit well enough with Beidou’s clothes for me
