Let’s just say that being with this one-winged angel is no simple task, but how he comes to care for you is worth it all.
To be honest, you most likely will be the first person he gives his heart to, despite the fame and all of the attention he’s given.
TOUCH-STARVED!! To the max! He wasn’t “isolated”, but he hasn’t interacted that much with others so simple touches and gestures are things he’s still getting used to.
Aside from cuddles, even something as simple as just taking a nap or whatnot has him on edge. He’s never really let his guard down, so this is all new to him.
It’s not that he won’t stare long at you when you sleep, but a fleeting glance every now and then just to admire you. That it’s not a figment of imagination or experimentation.
Height is something he doesn’t make a fuss out of, but it has it’s perks (wink wink).
If you’re the same height as him, he likes it for the occasional kisses and/or hugs.
If you’re taller than him, he realizes he has a Kink™
If you’re shorter than him, no one dare mess with you nor give you slack with the tall and broody one-winged man behind you.
Speaking of one-wing, don’t be too surprised if you were to wake up one of these days or lounging on the couch, when a feathery wing just engulfs you. It’s involuntary sometimes (or is it?)
If you met and got with Sephiroth before his “madness”, it’s a union that he’s all the more appreciative for because in all of the misunderstandings, at least he had someone genuinely there for him.
If it’s after his falling out and descent into madness, it’s borderline yandere territory. He didn’t realize he’s lost so much and he doesn’t want to go through that again.
Love language wise, he’s more of a quality time, gift-giving, and physical touch type of person. He may not be overly extraverted with showing affections, but when he does, there’s a heartfelt to it. He really does care, but doesn’t express it as openly as some.
Stereotypical romantic pet names: “my love, my darling, my queen…”. If you like sunsets/sunrises, then it’s “my light”.
Dry sense of humor bantering back and forth, with his every charming smug grin.
Pre-madness, it is notable that he does have a fan club of sorts. While he does not care for their attention (only eyes for you), he is the exact opposite when others have their eyes for you. Jealous glances with a hand that lingers on you, even if Sephiroth doesn’t realize it.
He may not be a world class chef (he can cook a dish or two), but Sephiroth still likes to indulge in whatever decadent cuisine you or him are craving for.
He’s a total tease (and a smug one at that), with lingering passionate kisses and touches that leave you wanting more.
Night flights have started to become y’all’s evening outing, but something about seeing life at night from the sky, with your love, just makes it a bit more special than most.
If children were ever to be a thing, he is shocked and surprised at first (he didn’t think he’d have kids, let alone a romantic relationship).
He’d be that type of parent that’s strict but so adoring and loving towards his kids as well. He can never really be mad at them, and praises every day-to-day milestone with them.
