Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2020 edition of this year’s Valentines Mission! So many great submissions, until next year!
Pairing: Yancy x reader
Summary: A Valentine’s day card causes Yancy to question how he feels about you.
Note: I’m not gonna post regularly. I gave up on that. Also sorry for the unexpected hiatus! I just lost the motivation to write, but I’ll try to post some more! Also tagged for the lovely @hidinginmybochard !
“Happy Valentine’s day?”
Yancy tilted his head as he read the card you’ve ever so carefully crafted aloud.
“Wasn’t that two days ago?”
“Well, I mean yes, but, uh-” you shifted uncomfortably under his gaze, wondering whether he would reject you or not- “I wanted to give it to you in person.”
His eyebrows furrowed as he read the rest of the card. After finishing, he let his eyes wander over the objects placed on the table. Surprisingly, you managed to bring in a nicely arranged bouquet of flowers and an expensive-looking box of pralines. Then he looked back at you.
A hopeful expression sat on your face, patiently waiting for a response. Patiently waiting to change into an expression of anger. Patiently waiting to shout their hate at him, to leave and never come back.
But you weren’t like that. Of course he could just say no. Everything would continue as it had before! You’d come in to visit him every third Sunday, talk to him about what happened, gush with him over musicals (or completely roast them) and maybe bring him some delicious food! Even the guards like you!
You’d just stay friends, do stuff friends do, like hugging, laughing together about some stupid mishaps, cuddling, softly kissing each other under the moonlight because the other person was looking so kissable the stars became secondary…
Hold on, that’s not a thing friends do. That’s a thing lovers do. And you and Yancy were just friends! Yet… he couldn’t deny the sneaky glances he occasionally threw your way, or the nightly hours he had spend imagining how your lips would feel if they touched his…
The sole thought of such an action caused a wave of butterflies to erupt in his stomach. Could it be that he had… fallen for you?
He pondered over the thought in his head. Every time you had locked eyes, he could feel the heat creeping up his cheeks and had to look away. Your determination to stay his friend made him want to squeal out of happiness and kiss you- okay, if he only thought of you as a friend, he would’ve not even mentioned the possibility of kissing you.
So maybe he had fallen for you. Just a little. But how should he tell you? There’s no way he could come up with a fully-written song and thought-through choreography right now, he’d definitely need at least a month to do so-
“Yancy? Everything alright? You know I don’t mind waiting, but you’ve been staring at me for at least five minutes and visitation is limited. You can just tell me if you need more time.”
Oh, right. You were conveniently sitting right in front of him, having confessed your love to him. He couldn’t be rejected. And making a song for you this early in the yet-to-exist relationship maybe, possibly seemed like a bit too much?
Maybe it wasn’t! Yancy had never been in a relationship before so he couldn’t exactly tell. But one thing was for sure: If he told you he needed more time, you’d have to suffer through a whole month, constantly wondering whether he actually liked you back or simply thought of a way not to hurt your feelings while rejecting you.
So it was settled. All he had to do was to be real smooth about it, and everything would be fi-
“I love you.”
That was not smooth. But you know what? It’s alright.
Apparently, you seemed to think the same thing because a giant grin broke onto your face. Your hand snuck its way through the flowers and the box to lay itself upon his hand that some time had come to rest on the table. You picked it up and carefully brought it to your lips, giving it a gentle kiss.
“I love you too.”
18th Century (the era of the love letter)
My sovereign of hearts.
Allow me to deliver unto you any amount of pleasure you so desire, for I cannot live without the rose of your smile. The world yesterday was a cold desert covered in snow until you appeared, the winter sun rising to thaw, melting the ice of my heart with the gentle touch of your hand. Rosie, I could live that night a thousand times, and still I would not be satisfied, for you leave at the end and I only wish to be by your side.
I know, I am a knave. Nothing more than a fool. But if I could be your fool, than fool I shall be. For my life would be a thousand times richer with the mere sound of your laughter. Heavens, just the memory of our dance and the way we swept has me buried in gold. Though I should ponder, because to even glimpse your face each day would be an honour so divine I fear a fool would be rendered blind, for yours is a beauty that eclipses all of Earth. My love, I could serve you as a queen but as a goddess? I must worship the very ground you gaze upon.
Allow me this honour, dear Rosie. For I pleaded with time to have the clock strike midnight at one, but even an hour is too short to appreciate the warmth of your words and the hazel of your eyes. I am yearning. Living only for the warmth of your arms, the sound a second heart to dull the echoing of my own. You are the spark that brought this son of Prometheus alive. I am duty bound to serve you, honour bound to worship you but to love you? I am heaven bound.
Please Rosie, allow me to stand at your side and bow at your feet. It is all that I wish.
I made this for Valentines, but I didn’t have time to color it in… Better late than never right?

Sault, it’s Anaïs again! Seeing as though my last post was so popular, I decided to do another one, but maybe a little more nsfw. These are a mix of things to use in your relationship, along with a few that can be used as chat-up lines. I hope you get some use out of these (but remember to be respectful and only use these when you know it is appropriate. Do not use these if you think it would make the other person uncomfortable. It shouldn’t need to be said, but sadly…)
NB: I have used ‘tu’ in all of these, but if you are not in a relationship/of a young age/know the person well, you should swap these with ‘vous’ and its appropriate conjugation. I am also aware that I might seem like I’m erasing non-binary people here and I apologise, but I am unsure as to how nb address works in French which is why it is not included, but if you are unsure I would use the masculine or ask the person for their pronouns.
