How would the Bros react to an MC that paces every chance they get? Be it because they're stimming or because they're anxious- if they can pace, they'll likely pace or they'll get agitated?
Here's my attempt at this at least! Hopefully this works?
Obey Me! Brothers reacting to an MC who paces when anxious
He can understand the need to pace to get out energy, he’s done it himself when he’s thinking hard about something or frustrated.
As a result he’s not phased when you do it, so long as it isn’t distracting him or others from their work
If it does, he’ll try not to get snippy, but might suggest you find other ways to get out the anxious energy.
Honestly asks Levi for suggestions, knowing that he has anxiety as well and has less physical methods of coping
Teases you for it at first, y’know, the whole ‘You’re gonna pace a hole into the floor’ thing
But when he realizes why you’re pacing, he’s a lot more sympathetic and tries to figure out how to help you
Doesn’t mind you pacing, but you pacing means you aren’t really paying attention to him, so he’s quick to try and find solutions
Tries to get rid of the stressor if possible, even starts going online to find ways to deal with anxiety
Not all of them help, and he gets distracted way too easily, but… it’s the thought that counts?
In all seriousness, he can relate to having too much energy from nerves or anxiety to know what to do with, but his stims are less active. Flappy hands, his tail flicking a lot, talking a lot, things that can be done while still sitting at his computer
So he’s not really phased if you end up pacing around him, and is actually likely to snap at someone who’s trying to get onto you for pacing, with the exception of Lucifer. He’s more reserved when explaining to Lucifer that you’re basically doing your version of his stims
If you don’t like your pacing, he’s happy to help you find other things that help you to get the energy out and relax. Fidget cubes, spinners, flappy hands, anything he can think of!
Has the second lowest patience for the pacing, even if he understands the need to let it out. It’s the frequency that would bother him more than anything
As a result, he tries to get to the bottom of the issue, dealing with the stressor however he can
And tries to find more subtle ways for you to get that energy out, going to Levi for suggestions because he knows that he has anxiety as well and he seems to deal with it…. Relatively well
Also takes to researching other coping mechanisms and stims that are less disruptive and easier for you to do, especially for in class
Doesn’t entirely understand the anxiety or pacing, but supportive!
He doesn’t terribly mind you pacing, but does help you find alternative stims if you want him to
Especially tries to convince you to dance to get the anxious energy out. Even if it’s silly little shimmy dances or him twirling you or vice versa. Something to distract you and get your attention back on him!
He will try to help with dealing with the stressor if he can, though he’s more likely to direct you to whichever brother he thinks would help you most with it. Satan if it’s academic, Levi if it’s general anxiety, that sort of thing.
He can kind of understand, though anxiety just messes with his appetite, so he can’t fully relate.
Might suggest you try working out with him, like going for a jog or do weight lifting or something with him. Distraction, physical work, and bonding time! Win/win!
He doesn’t judge you in the slightest for your pacing, and lets you do it to your hearts content. Though watching you pace will make him work up an appetite
Goes to Levi for suggestions on how to handle it and help you, comes back with some stim toys for you to try. One or two might have been nibbled on, but he did his best!
Also easily frustrated with your pacing if it’s around him, and tries to convince you to just sleep it off with him
Likely doesn’t work, but an attempt was made.
Doesn’t really have the energy to help you with the stressor, but will make a comment to the effect of ‘You’re reminding me of Levi’, his way of suggesting you go talk to him about it
If you take too long to do so, he’ll message Levi for you. Then tries to convince you to come nap again.
If you ask him to, he might even start to tell you stories or facts about the stars or his brothers to help distract you from the stressor so you can finally relax and nap with him
