anonymous asked: amaryllis , angelica , chamomile , daisy , hibiscus ! / botanical headcanons
amaryllis : what is something or someone that your muse takes pride in ? how do they express that pride ?
His animals. They are products of his love- he works with them not for awards or accolades, but because he loves them, and he loves working with them. He values each and every life he works with, and raising them to be happy and healthy brings him immense joy. He is proud of his love for them, and his ability to bring them happiness and fulfillment.
angelica : where does your muse draw inspiration in life ? what motivates them ?
He has an intrinsic motivation to work with animals; he enjoys it, and he strives to care for his animals the best he possibly can. However, everything else? He cares little for. Everything he does, he does to protect and care for life. He is motivated to care for it, despite his outwards persona.
(Humans are counted in this, though he prefers to keep them at arm’s length because he cannot trust their intentions.)
chamomile : what is your muse likely to take away from a painful experience ? are they one to be haunted by adversity , or to use what they’ve gone through to become stronger ?
He adapts. He will mold his way of thinking around the experience, in a way that causes him the least amount of emotional pain. His entire worldview was molded around reconciling his mother’s interactions of him, other children’s interactions with him, and his inability to connect with them in a way that they understood.
As far as what, exactly, he takes away from it: that depends on the experience. For example: others tease or make fun of him? They just can’t comprehend his true self. He must hide it away, for their sake. It is beneath him, to want to befriend them.
daisy : did your muse ever feel as though their innocence had been lost ? what moment in their life could be described as the end of their innocence ?
He would not say that his innocence has been lost- moreso that he never had it in the first place. He cannot remember a time in his life he has been ‘innocent’- from a young age, he felt he caused his mother grief and pain when she looked at him, and the belief that he was something repulsive, demonic even, took root very early.
hibiscus : how does your muse view the gentler , daintier things in life ? as things worth preserving & caring for , or things only bound to wither & disappear ?
Though he may never admit this aloud, he believes these things are something to be enjoyed, something to be protected. He believes he will never get to experience gentleness or love, and he distances himself from others in order to protect them from the misery he is bound to bring them.
In truth: he has no idea how to handle being shown care and gentleness, and, if he tries to reach for it only to fail or be rejected, it would hurt. It would prove to him that he truly is unworthy of it. So he never tries at all. He keeps people at a distance, so they won’t try to get close to him, and he will not be tempted to reach for them in turn.
thinkin abt the guy i met on tinder and mentioned i was in a champion pub quiz team to and he was like “hey maybe i should come along and join you one time” and i - i’m so sorry but this isn’t a game. this isn’t a fucking game we have a reputation to maintain and we don’t do open call auditions. We don’t win by inviting randos from hookup apps we win by having a carefully curated team that spans generations and interests so that we have the broadest collective knowledge possible.
@yashiryo asked: 👀 + favorite food go go go. give it to us, tsukasa
❝ AMANE. I like doughnut holes ! they’re all the joy of a doughnut, but you can just toss it in your mouth and keep running ! ❞
@yashiryo said: ❝ i’m not changing my mind. ❞
a contemplative look spreads across the twin’s face, finger gently tapping his cheek. ❝ wow ! you must really like amane, huh ? ❞
folding his arms behind his back, he starts to circle. gaze focused, yet unfocused on her the entire time.
❝ to shrug off murder ! wow, you must be smitten ... i’m so jealous ! ❞ laughter gently escapes his lips, the entirely childish demeanor slightly dropped as he stares.
❝ you don’t know amane like i do. you never will. ❞ the singsong voice gently esaped him, a tune that would not feel unfamiliar at a playground, or an amusement park — yet it held a chilling tone to it. fingers press to her shoulder, and he leans in.
❝ try dying though ! it may give you an advantage ~ ❞

To say the words had caught the former Archon by surprise was certainly putting it lightly. They had spent quite some time together during his stay in Liyue harbour, Childe even proving to be quite the helpful push he felt both his people and the Traveller needed to grow, even if not quite everything had gone quite to plan.
At first, he was simply silent, sipping at his tea calmly as ever before honey gold eyes closed - as if in deep contemplation for a short while.
--- “ Is this another of your attempts to battle me, Childe ? ”
Zhongli eventually asked, placing white porcelain cup down on the desk before him.
--- “ Or are you perhaps being serious ? ”
