the crows and their godly parents
request: we should talk about ... who the crows' godly parents would be :)
a/n: AHHHH thank you for this request i get to talk about my two favorite things, please leave your thoughts/opinions!
inej ghafa - daughter of hades
sticks to the shadows
enjoys the silence
is almost always the observer
more powerful than anyone gives her credit for
she may be silent but she needs the laughs and the found family
is loved by everyone she meets
if you underestimate her once, you never do it again
strong sense of justice
nina zenik - daughter of aphrodite
sorry i know this one is super obvious
instinct effect on people
very sure of herself and her own beauty
she OWNS the color red
loves so deeply
understands everyone's different love languages
flirts with everyone
knows all the romance language
finds a way to make her practical nemesis to fall in love with her
so so selfless
would sacrifice everything for the people she cares about
makes everyone feel beautiful in their own skin despite everything that’s hurt them
can literally make someone's heart stop, do i have to say anything else?
jesper fahey - son of apollo and dionysus
i absolutely can’t decide so he’s both
flirty as hell, as we all know
literally a ball of fucking sunshine
very bright and confident
comfortable with everyone
very into the party scene
dionysus’ effect would be his obsession with cards
extroverted as hell
happy and light until someone tries to fight him
will absolutely end your life and then make a joke about it
huggable and cute but don't fuck with what he loves
wylan van eck - hephaestus
okay this one is kind of a stretch
but hephaestus's thing is making things
everything is much more hands-on
lots of tinkering
and wylan is always working on making new substances
he doesn’t excel with words but gods can he work well with his head and hands to make something helpful for the crows
likes that jesper doesn’t sit still
mini kaz always has a different idea
or a different plan
or a different way of doing things
good under pressure
kaz brekker - son of athena
always has a plan
athena is the goddess of war strategy, and kaz always has a strategy
war without the aggression
unless absolutely necessary
she’s also wise
and though kaz plays his experience in the barrell as just toughening up it’s made him wise
people look to him for leadership
doesn’t need many words
kaz’s plans are creative
in a way they’re there own type or art
definitely the smart one outta the bunch
matthias helvar - son of ares
mr im not a criminal im a Soldier
goes on too become a criminal
probably the most level headed of the group
like doesn’t do the impulsive thing and thinks like a fighter
softie on the inside
but only for one pretty heartrender
the family he has within the crows is so important to him
they’re like his regiment, the people he’ll go down fighting next to
all warriors need to rest sometimes so lots of exhausted lazy smiles
everyone confides in him for some reason
understands the importance of sacrifice :(

pairing: kaz brekker x reader
warnings: maybe some angst? but mostly fluff; swearing.
a/n: OKAY THIS IS SO CUTE this has been in my drafts for like centuries because i was at little unsatisfied about how it turned out but i decided to finally post it so well enjoy!
you were leaving ketterdam.
when nina asked for your help with a mission with her friends a few months later, you didn't even hesitate. nina was your best friend, he was like a sister to you, you would do anything for her.
as a grisha, you were important to the plan, but it was over now. it was over now and you could happily go back home and live your happily happy life, right?
no, you couldn't.
you would miss inej a lot, you two grew much more closer than you thought you would and now you couldn't imagine your life without her, and you would miss nina even more, your heart clenched just by the thought of spending so much time away from her again. you would miss jesper too and wylan and matthias and you would miss this place.
but this wasn't it. this wasn't what was making you feel like someone has closed a fist around your heart.
you would miss kaz. so much.
you didn't even knew when did you catch feelings for him, but it happened. and you still tried to push your feelings deep down inside your heart so you wouldn't do something stupid like confessing what you feel for kaz, but it was starting to become harder and harder to hide it. another reason why you should leave as soon as possible and never look back.
you couldn't handle the rejection that would come afterwards if you dared to say something. you couldn't.
you've also always hated goodbyes, so you had the brilliant idea to leave in the middle of the night, without telling anyone. you would send a letter to nina or something when you got to ravka. you would figure it out.
but of course your plan ended before it even started.
you were in the small improvised room you've been sleeping in for the past months, turning around to toss a shirt into the bag you were putting your things in, when your heart almost jumped out of your mouth. kaz was standing by the door.
"fuck! kaz, you scared me!"
"what are you doing?" he asked.
"you just ruined my evil plan," you sighed. "i was going to leave tonight. i didn't want to tell anybody."
"why?" his expression was the same as always, but there was something more in his eyes. you couldn't figure out what it was.
"i've always hated goodbyes." you say, fiddling with your fingers. "it would break my heart if i had to say goodbye to nina and know that it would be the last time we would see each other in a long time."
you lowered your gaze to the floor, as if that could prevent kaz to find out you were lying.
of course you would miss nina. but you knew the one person it would hurt you more to say goodbye to was standing right in front of you.
"you don't need to go." he started. "you can stay here with nina."
'stay here with me.' is what you wanted him to say. you knew he wouldn't.
no, you couldn't. you couldn't spend yet another day here and have to look at kaz and never know what he's thinking, never know what he's feeling.
you hate that he doesn't even reject you. he just... let's you wonder if somehow he feels at least a fraction of what you feel for him. you hate that you notice every single time he looks at you when he thinks you're not paying attention, because you don't know what it means.
you hate that you watch him swallow hard now, as if he's fighting back the urge to say something, and you don't know what it means.
"what is even there back in ravka? you seem happy with nina." kaz finally says.
"ravka is my home, kaz."
no, it wasn't. you knew ravka wasn't really your home, it was just the place where you were born in. you knew you would be leaving your home far behind you as soon as you left ketterdam. as soon as you left kaz.
"would you be happier there?" he asked. your look up at him when you realize there's something different in his voice now. again, you can't figure out what it is.
you hate it. you hate it that he keeps hiding from you.
now that you're looking him in the eye, you realize, surprised, that you can't lie. not to him.
"no, i wouldn't." you do your best not to let your voice crack. "i was the happiest i have ever been here. with nina."
"then why are you leaving?" he says, and you realize he's closer than he was before.
you let out a humorless laugh. "give me a reason why i shouldn't."
"because i don't want you to go."
it takes literally five seconds for you to be able to speak again.
"what?" it comes out in a whisper.
"i want you to stay- i want you to-" you watch, dumbfounded, as he stutters. "i want you."
you don't know how you're still breathing.
your heart is beating so fast and loud you're surprised kaz isn't able to hear it.
"tell me if there's something you want, if there's something in ravka," kaz speaks again when you don't answer him. "and i'll do everything i can to give it to you here. but if you want to go, then i will let you."
"there's nothing i want." you say, trying to make your hands stop shaking. "there's nothing i want there or anywhere. nothing but you."
kaz sighs heavily, as if a weight it's lifted off his shoulders.
"but i want something from you, kaz." you continue. "i want to know you. really know you. and i want you to know me too. there's some things about me that still haunt me too, but i will try my best to open up to you. and i want you to try to do the same. we will work on this together and i know nothing is easy with neither me nor you but i want us to find out a way."
kaz looks at you for a long time, so long you think he's not going to say anything at all.
but then he does something that almost makes your heart stop.
you watch as he takes of one of his gloves off. and takes your hand in his.
you smile wide. so wide your cheeks almost hurt.
there wasn't anything he could have said that would mean as much as this, and you know it's not easy for him but you also know, looking at him now, that he will let you help it get easier.
kaz seems breathless at the sight of your smile. as if it means the whole world to him.
"thank you." he says.
"for what?" you can't even think properly.
"for staying. i'll make it worth it. i promise."
"kaz, it's already worth it. you're worth it."
you watch as his eyes glimmer with something new in that moment, and when you look kaz in the eye, you know you're home.
