volturi sleep headcanons
I headcanon that while vampires don’t need to sleep, they still retain the ability if they choose to use it.
Some vampires can get heavily wounded and pass out/rest to recover. Others can be pushed into such emotional or physical stress that the exhaustion pushes them to sleep. And of course some just straight up enjoy sleeping for leisure.
Aro makes sleeping into and entire day of pampering. It usually consists bathing with calming oils and luxurious soaps, facial routines, and then later one of the others being forced to massage him. His actually sleeping is far less glamorous. Aro’s hair gets everywhere, he snores loudly, and his whole body is sprawled all over the bed. MASSIVE cuddler. He will cling to your sleeping body and refuse to let go.
Sulpicia will plan her sleeps weeks in advance, and is VERY adamant no one disturb her. She makes up her bed of too many blankets, pillows, and duvets. She puts a sign on her door as to not disturb her. She wears a fluffy purple eye mask, despite her room being underground with no windows. Her phone is set up on a stand with an organized playlist of all her sleepy tunes. Then proceeds to sleep for almost a week.

Caius is a light sleeper. it takes him forever to fall asleep, and usually has to be really coaxed into it by others when he’s clearly overworked himself. He tosses and turns the whole time. It’s not uncommon Caius with suffer night terrors and wake himself awake in a panic. (He lowkey enjoys sleeping with others around, for
Marcus is a pro when it comes to sleeping. Marcus could literally be in the midst of an important conversation and in a second he’s entered a deep REM sleep. He’s so easy to get to fall asleep, as he enjoys it probably more than any other coven members. Shamelessly love to cuddle; person, pillow, a plush even. He is also a heavy sleeper, very hard to wake up, and when you do he’s usually very groggy. Also occasionally sleep talks.
Athenodora is the one that sleeps the least, and is also the hardest to fall asleep. She’s unbelievably stubborn, and occasionally has to be forced into bed by the others when she’s clearly exhausted. She is also an incredibly light sleeper, so even if you were to get her to bed, the slightest noise snaps her right out of it, and the process has to start over. (also sleeps absolutely ass-nude)
