Hello! I saw that you write for howls moving castle and I was wondering if you could do some hcs with howl and a reader who is a ballet dancer??
Note: Omg that's so pretty, of course, here u go bun. ʕっ•ᴥ•ʔっ
Also Sophie will be mentioned here but she's only formed a platonic friendships with both you and Howl, also her curse is broken.
Oh he could watch you for ages.
You were abseloutly stunning.
The way you held yourself so delicately with or without your pointe shoes had him entranced. (◠‿◕)
Twirling in a way that made him dizzy and doped up with love.
Howl couldn't fanthom how someone can keep such fragile positions for hours on end.
It was one of the things that you could do that pulled amazement and admiration from him.
He simply couldn't get enough of how wonderful you looked when you were dancing you way across the the wooden boards of the castle.
If he could, he'd watch you all day but then your feet would ache and he'd have his magic duties to keep up with unfortunately.
Howl is quite tardy but still knows when he is needed.
乁[ ◕ ᴥ ◕ ]ㄏ
He even comes back with new pointe shoes whenever you start sinking too much into your old ones, you've formed quite a collection. (◕દ◕)
He even magically installed a new closet just for your dancing equipment, from industrial glue for the shoes to little compartments to keep accessories.
Definitely has boasted about your skills before.
He's dramatic, it's expected.
"Can your s/o ballet dance? I think not." (⌐■-■)
He'll flaunt you at every opportunity.
Sometimes he'll take you by the hand to spin you around with him in a dainty but silly dance, his boots thudding against the ground while your toes either rested above his shoes or lightly pressing to the ground.
Whenever you're dancing with Howl there will always be flustering but comforting conversation and even whispered kisses pressed into your skin leaving you flushing bright crimson.
What can I say, he's an ultimate flirt. (ㆁωㆁ)
He knows nothing of ballet, but he'll slip into the motions with you anyway, it's a strange but pleasant rythm you both tend to find.
Even lifts you up into the air by the hips for a move if you'd ask nicely.
Anything for you. ꒰⑅ᵕ༚ᵕ꒱˖♡
The rest of the castle love to watch you when you practice although calcifer will desperately deny it when teased by Howl.
"She's beautiful, isn't she?"
"She's alright." ತ_ʖತ
You and Sophie like to pirouette around in the grass of random lands the castle ends up in or in the comfort of each others rooms.
Her hat will always fling off during those times, but she couldn't care less.
You're like a second sister, one she can properly relate to.
You'll catch glimpses of Markle peeking over from hedges and trying to copy your moving only to end up fast on the ground.
Pls help him up and teach him simple positions, he loves bonding and spending time with you, you're family to the little one. ಥ‿ಥ
Even hug him close and dance around aimlessly while he's in your hold, he'll giggle while Howl fondly watches you both. (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧
Thinking of a distant future and a dancing happy child that looked a little bit like both you and him.
This Garden himbo is whipped I swear on it. 😌
Once Howl even floated you up along with him into the sky as you both flew over the garden while he caught your hands with his body behind yours and swayed gently in a simple ballet you remember from a long lost past.
A distant tune played that only you two could hear from an invisible music box that his magic fashioned while he softly hummed to into your ears in the tranquility of the clear lakes and blooming flowers.
Always makes sure to massage your sore feet before bed or after shows that help with income or just when he feels like you need it.
Your comfort comes first.
He's very supportive of your dancing and even likes to go overboard with a lot of flowy stage dresses.
You have to stop him from buying too many, Howl likes pretty things and soon enough you won't have space in your closet for anymore ballet shoes or dresses. ಡ ͜ ʖ ಡ
If there's any performances from the kingdom you ever participate in he'll be sure to sit in the crowd disguised.
You'll never see him until the end of the show but you'll always feel him there.
Doesn't matter where you go, he'll follow.
He's always there, just for you and only for you.
A definite simp and just adores you a lot.
Thinks you're ballet dancing talent is simply extraordinary.
