Spook-tober Maribat — Day 4 — Ghost
So, work was a bitch today so I'm a bit late for today. Plus, this prompt was surprinsgly difficult, so it's really short. It's a Jasonette and could be romantic or platonic, take it as you wish.
Also, I ended up taking the angsty way and, I have to warn you, this is my first time writing angst.
Tikki was the one to wake her up. There wasn’t any weird feeling or sudden realisation, like some people would say happened to them. She had been sleeping, not knowing that something was happening.
She couldn’t have stopped it, anyway, but she didn’t even feel something.
She didn’t even realise something was wrong until Tikki pointed to the foot of her bed.
“Hey, Mari,” he said with a sad smile, looking at her with so much love and sadness, Marinette felt her chest hurt.
“Jason,” she whispered softly with surprise when she saw her soulmate, sitting up to face him. “Why— How are you here? It’s not our dream zone?”
“Yeah, apparently there is a part of our bond we didn’t know about,” he told her, his smile wavering.
“What do you mean,” she asked, feeling a lump obstructing her throat.
“I’m—” He paused with a frown, his hands fisting and relaxing a couple of times at his side. “I’m not here anymore, Pix.”
“What? Of course you are here,” she told him, refusing to understand him, her heartbeat still picking up in apprehension. “I can see you.”
“I’m not—” he started, closing his eyes. “I’m sorry, Marinette.”
"Non. No, no,” she whimpered, trying to grab him only for her hand to go through him. “You can’t— You can’t—”
“I’m sorry,” he repeated, putting the ghost of his hand on her cheek. “I’m so sorry.”
“No,” she whined with despair. “You are here, you are not—”
“I’m not here, Pixie,” he told her sadly. “It’s not really me, just a ghost. Just the time to tell you adieu and how much I’m sorry.”
“Jay, please, don’t go,” she begged, trying again, without success, to grab him.
“I can’t stay, I’m sorry. I don’t want to leave you, but I’m no longer here, Pix.”
“What— What happened?” She asked, looking at him seriously. “How did you die, Jason?”
“It was Joker,” he said with a humourless smile. “Sheila was working with him.”
“Sheila?! Your—” She stopped herself then, if the woman led Jason to his death, she wasn’t his mother.
“Don’t worry,” he started, not looking her in the eyes, and Marinette knew he was going to lie. “It was quick.”
“Don’t— Don’t do that, Jason. Don’t try to protect me by lying to me.”
“You were always too smart for my own good, Pix,” he said with a sad smile, and Marinette noticed that he was looking more and more translucid.
"Non!" She exclaimed, outstretching her hands. “Stay, please.”
“I’m so sorry, I can’t control it. I would love to stay forever with you.”
“Hey, Pix, promise me something, would ya?”
“Anything, Jason,” she said, tears staining her cheeks.
“Take as long as possible to join me, alright?” He asked with a crooked smile, his ghost disappearing before she could respond.
Marinette broke down completely after that, screaming her throat hoarse in despair.
Her parents ran up to her room, entering only to find her hugging her knee, swaying back and forth, and muttering broken Jason is dead’ again, and again, and again.
Understanding quickly the situation,Tom and Sabine shared a grim look, before walking to their daughter to hug her.
There was nothing they could do but be here for her.

okay wait techno hc time
@emo-and-confused @phantom-clock @strawberiitea
EDIT: @askivv JUST REMINDED ME THAT WILBUR CONFIRMED TECHNO IS OLDER ONLY BY TWO MINUTES AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE REVERSE BUT THIS STILL APPLIES IF WE’RE TALKING ABOUT GENERAL FAN HEADCANONS ABOUT TECHNO BEING THE MIDDLE CHILD
Alright alright, let’s do this.
So you know how there’s this whole ‘Techno is the middle sibling’ but also ‘Wilbur said he’s two minutes older than Techno’ debate thing in the fandom?
Well my brain has created a headcanon to solve this problem. I know a way both things can be correct.
Technoblade is the Blood God.
Now that’s not new or anything because there are lots of headcanons with Technoblade actually being the Blood God. But my take on it is that, just like Phil, he’s also immortal. He’s not as old as Phil, but he’s still much, much older than Wilbur and Tommy.
Which, you know, seems like it would make sense that he’s the older brother. He’s a couple centuries or so old.
However, he’s of course not physically old. Phil is only 32 yet has lived for at least a few centuries. So that means Techno could also be only 21 yet live at least a few centuries. He may have the experience of many centuries, but his body is only 21 when it comes to mortal years.
And since I (along with many others, I’m sure) also headcanon that Techno was just found in the Nether by Phil, maybe they aren’t sure of his age. Like, do you think Techno knew how old he was when he was found? Time in the Nether works very differently, so even if he knew, that number would probably be skewed when he got to the Overworld. And that’s adding onto the whole ‘immortal years work differently than mortal years’.
Wilbur just met someone who looked the same age as him, and as far as they know, is around the same age as him. And he was like ‘twin brother :]’ without really considering/caring that Techno was also technically older than him.
In conclusion, Techno is simultaneously the eldest sibling and middle child.
TL;DR: Headcanon Techno is immortal so he’s technically older but he’s physically around the same age as Wilbur so Wilbur decided that he was older by a few minutes.
