I have this dumb headcanon that Castiel is fond of birds… and that they think he’s pretty neat too.
but imagine instead of a quote, something related to your soulmate appears on your skin when you first touch them, on the spot that you touch them with, so it’s usually on hands because people tend to shake hands when they meet, right?
When Enjolras first touches Grantaire they already know each other for a long time, they’ve just never touched before because Enjolras doesn’t like people touching him, but then he’s bickering with Grantaire and Grantaire wants to leave, so Enjolras grabs him buy the shoulder and a grapevine starts from his fingertip and travels up his arm, getting bigger, up to his shoulder and then across his chest until the grapevines curl over his heart
and he pulls his hand back, startled, because he never believed in this, doesn’t like this system at all, because he feels nobody can be closer to him than his two best friends
insert e/R fighting and reconciling
and when Grantaire looks at his shoulder that night there’s a large sun in the spot that Enjolras touched with words tumbling out of it
(aro/ace Feuilly who never expected a soulmate gets a tattoo that looks like bloodsmears on his fists when he punches Bahorel in the face in a bar bc non-romantic soulmates)
In linguistics, a filler is a sound or word that is spoken in conversation by one participant to signal to others that he/she has paused to think but is not yet finished speaking.
