Okay but y’all really out here sleepin on those platonic soulmate AUs huh?
Like I’m fine with all this good good ship content but where’s the fics where they’re not romantically interested in anyone?
What about AUs where Logan dreads seeing every new message from his soulmates because oh god he doesn’t have time in his life for one partner, let alone three, he can’t handle a relationship right now,
What about AUs where they meet eachother for the first time and Patton knows that he loves them but he doesn’t love them like that, but he keeps it to himself because it’s fine, this is fine, everyone else seems happy with this so why isn’t he?
What about AUs where Roman’s grown up his whole life thinking that a soulmate is someone you’re supposed to want to kiss and hold and touch, but whenever he sees them it just doesn’t happen, there’s no sparks that fly or butterflies in his stomach but he shoves away thoughts that maybe he just doesn’t like them like that because that’s what’s supposed to happen, maybe it just hasn’t clicked yet, maybe he’ll just learn to love them the right way, he’s good actor, just fake it till you make it, Roman.
What about AUs where Virgil overthinks himself into a panic because yeah he’s never actually told them that he loves them like that but it still feels like he’s lying to them, he feels horrible because it’s not their fault he can’t love them like he should be able to. Before he knows it it all comes spilling out, and there’s a terrible silence for a moment while Virgil braces for rejection and oh god his soulmates are going to leave him and he’s going to be alone forever-
The other three jump to help Virgil calm down, with Logan walking him through breathing exercises and Roman humming a soft tune that Virgil doesn’t recognize but relaxes him nonetheless and Patton asking carefully if it’s okay if he hugs him and Virgil shakes in Patton’s arms because it feels so nice but it doesn’t feel like it should.
And the four of them talk it out, and oh my god they’ve all been worried over nothing. So the four of them move in together and they know they love each other. People ask if they’re dating and they shrug it off, and they’re happy being together without anything romantic.
What about platonic soulmate AUs y’all???
