Binded by Fate

Work Text:


  • Your soulmate was a weird one.
  • Then again, having a soulmate was a strange experience.
  • Back in your world, you didn't have soulmates…well, maybe you did but not a way to identify them.
  • Here in Twisted Wonderland, soulmates were a regular occurrence.
  • Everyone had one, platonic or romantic.
  • And to find them?
  • Each one was unique: some couldn't see colors, some had red strings of fate, others had their first words written, and many more.
  • This world decided to give you a soulmate when you woke up here.
  • Which you hadn't known was a thing until Ace and Deuce had pointed it out.
  • And yours?
  • Yours dealt with communicating…through writing on the skin.
  • Well, it could have been worse.
  • And communicating through writing at least was easy, and you could do it anytime.
  • Well, besides washing the ink off.
  • Sometimes that wasn't very pleasant.
  • As to why your soulmate was weird?
  • Well… his shopping list was questionable: shrimp, chocolate, pickles, and milk.
  • "That better not be for one dish."
  • "And if it is?"
  • "Depends, what were you thinking of making with them?"
  • "Cake."
  • "You're banned from the kitchen."
  • "But why? You have to give me a chance!"
  • "No."

  • When you initially found out about your soulmate, it was a surprise.
  • You were bored and were doodling on your arm.
  • What you didn't expect was the doodles right next to yours.
  • You had screamed.
  • Ace, Deuce, and Grim had run to your side.
  • "YN!"
  • "What's wrong?!"
  • "Someone's writing on my arm!"
  • Ace flicked you on the forehead.
  • "That's probably your soulmate, idiot."
  • "Soulmate?"
  • Resulting in a conversation of soulmates, and you becoming more and more incredulous.
  • "I can solve your problem right now; just let me put some choice words on your arm."
  • Ace grinned deviously as he held a red pen up.
  • You threw a pillow at his face.
  • "No! I would rather get to know my soulmate before finding out who they are. Thank you very much."
  • Deuce had a thoughtful, "YN is right. It is better to be safe and get to know the person first."
  • Ace sighed dramatically, "You two are no fun!"

  • You had several candidates on who your soulmate could be.
  • That is if you were right, and they attended NRC too.
  • You stared as the tweels bulli-well, persuaded a fellow student to meet with Azul.
  • As they left, you couldn't help but take a pen and write on your arm.
  • "You wouldn't have a certain…obsession with mushrooms or shrimps, would you?"
  • "I don't, but they make great ingredients in brownies!"
  • "There are so many things wrong with that sentence."
  • "You haven't even tried it!"

  • You were currently struggling with your alchemy homework.
  • "How good are you with alchemy class?"
  • "You could say I'm an expert. ;)"
  • "What would it cost me for you to give me the answers?"
  • "Eat something I make."
  • "No, thanks. I'll gladly fail."
  • "You wound me, my dear! T_T"
  • "My stomach will thank me in the long run. Besides, if my three stooges found out I cheated, I would never hear the end of it."
  • "Oh? I, too, have three stooges of my own."
  • You couldn't help the smile that came across your face, laughing to yourself a bit.
  • "Do they also share one brain cell?"
  • "One brain cell is too much for them; they share half."
  • You burst out in laughter.
  • Homework could wait a bit.

  • You were tired.
  • It was one of those days where Headmaster Crowley literally made you do his job.
  • Your body ached.
  • You just wanted to sleep for a month after today.
  • Thankfully, Ace, Deuce, and Grim had taken pity and helped you.
  • But even then, it wore you all out.
  • "How good are you at hiding bodies?"
  • "Very good. Need help?"
  • "Don't tempt me; I might take you up on that."

  • You were walking around your backyard.
  • It seemed Tsunotarou was too busy for your nightly walks.
  • But you couldn't sleep.
  • You were thinking about your soulmate.
  • You had fallen for your soulmate.
  • But how to confess?
  • You raised your arms to the sky.
  • Staring at your inked-up arms.
  • You didn't want to erase them today.
  • You stared at the messages.
  • "What if I told you I like you?"
  • "I would tell you I like you back."
  • You startled.
  • You turned around.
  • "Lilia?"
  • Lilia smiled.
  • He was floating behind you.
  • His arms holding a bouquet of flowers.
  • "Hello, my dear."
  • "What are you doing here?"
  • Lilia handed you the flowers before taking your hand and kissing it.
  • "I came to confess. I hope you don't mind, my dear, but I am rather old in my ways of courting."
  • You laughed.
  • "I don't mind at all. In fact, I enjoy it."

Bonus:

  • "I'm still not eating your cooking."
  • "You haven't even tried it!"
