Some small part of Virgil @jughead-is-canonically-aroace “Hey! Don’t you say that! You know what?! You and me are going out to practice right now!” was thankful for that.

Let’s go.” Virgil smiled a little at Patton. “Hm, well I’m still holding you to that, so get on that “finding your other Soulmate and/or Soulmates” thing.” Patton grabbed Virgil’s hand and pulled him behind him out to the park. Logan smiled. “Ok, so here is the plan. I’m going to carry you up into the sky and then you can start flying!” “Yes dear.” Patton said happily. Virgil’s heart immediately started racing. Patton’s delicate wings would not be able to support both of them. Patton gently grabbed both of Virgil’s hands and stared into his eyes. After about three months of Patton and Logan being together, Virgil finally met the famed “Heart”. “Are you ready, Virgil?” Virgil never understood why Logan referred to him like that. Yes, Logan gushed (though, he wouldn’t admit to it) about the other and his emotional state of every second of every day, and how open he was about his feelings, but the nickname was still out of place. “…I don’t know about this, Pat…” Virgil was beyond nervous. Then, Virgil saw him.
“Do you trust me?” Patton said, his voice pure and clear. Virgil gazed into Patton’s beautiful eyes and felt the rest of the world melt away. His wings, large, red, and shimmering, were the shape of a heart when extended to full length. A large extension of the man himself. “…More than anything, Pat.” Patton smiled and gently began to float upwards. Virgil focused It took merely three weeks for Virgil to fall head-over-heels for the other man, but he never said a word. This was Logan’s Soulmate- Virgil didn’t only on Patton, not realizing that only a moment later they were both hovering up high in the air, belong anywhere in that mix. still holding hands. So, he kept his distance. He stayed out of the confusion that was Soulmates. Especially, Soulmates that weren’t his. “See Virge… I knew you could do it.” Patton said gently, moving forward to wrap his hands around Virgil’s neck in a hug. Virgil hadn’t even noticed that it was his own wings pulling him up Puppy love, he called it. He was sure it’d pass. into the night sky… And it was his own wings keeping them both in the air now as Patton hugged Virgil tight. It didn’t. “….Thank you Pat.” Everyday, it seemed his affections grew, until one day he confessed his feelings to Logan, apologizing over and over about butting in where he doesn’t belong, about getting in the way of his and Patton’s soulbond. The two of them went back to the house to find that Logan and Roman had fallen asleep on the couch. They smiled as they looked them over and began to head to bed. Patton went off to his “Virgil,” Logan had said, “Virgil it’s okay. You can’t help who you love, anymore than I can. Love is okay, Virgil. You’re the one who taught me room and Virgil went to grab a glass of water. As he walked back toward his room he noticed that. It’s okay.” something. He bent down behind the couch and picked up a stray feather. A brilliant white Saeran: Fun fact, you think it’s a fake gun. It’s not And a day later, Virgil had more than he could have hoped as he sat inbetween his partner of so many years, and his partner of seven minutes. feather… One of Roman’s feathers. Patton had, or so he said, loved Virgil since the day they met. “Uh-oh…” Virgil said Patton was just being dramatic. Patton only ruffled his wings in reply. ~
“NOOOO!!!!” Roman’s voice shook the house, waking up the other three occupants. Patton and Virgil was instantly in the common room and saw Roman collapsed dramatically on the floor. Logan looked completely disoriented, probably because the loud sound originated from a place so close to him.
“Why don’t you understand, I have no control over this?” Logan ran a frustrated hand through his hair. There were feathers all over the couch, Logan, the floor, and the table. It seemed like it was that time of the year again for Roman. “You said you did! You said you’d never leave me! That you chose me!” Virgil yelled back, tears streaming down his face. “Molting season is back!” Patton jumped and smiled, scooping up feathers from everywhere and “I can’t choose who my Soulmates are, it’s not my fault!” Logan shot back, raising his voice in frustration more than anger. placing them neatly in a pile. Roman let out a guttural cry of anguish. He had met his Soulmate. Apparently, he had only two. He had all but flown (literally, he had to restrain himself) when he had run into a young man “Calm down, Princey. This happens every year… You have to expect this by now. It’s been hurrying out of the local town hall, the two running hard into each other, but Logan having leaped back (okay, maybe he had kinda flown) so he literally happening annually since you grew feathers.” Virgil huffed and crossed his arms. didn’t fall. Logan could finally fly.
“But my magnificent wings! My beautiful feathers! My… Everything!”
“I love molting season! I get so many feathers for crafts!” Patton smiled, already having starting to He had flown home immediately to tell Virgil, who had been ecstatic to learn Logan had found his other Soulmate. Getting to know Patton and sort all his collected feathers into piles by size. “These will perfect for a couple nice quills… Huh, understand Soulbond’s better had really opened his mind and allowed him to see past what years of pain had done to him. Logaaaaan?” Patton held up a couple large feathers and waved them in front of Logan who smiled. Virgil just smiled at his boyfriends and walked off toward the kitchen. A week later, Logan was already dating Roman, and that’s when things got rocky. They were able to eventually calm Roman down enough to at least get him to stop dramatically Roman was all Logan talked about. Roman was all Logan thought about. Roman was all Logan cared about. ~Admin 404 sighing and throwing himself on the furniture, but he was still rather upset at how much he looked like, in his own words, a ‘plucked chicken.’ They were all sitting around the couch watching yet Then Pat. another Disney movie where the prince had to come to the rescue, AKA the only thing that would Patton met Roman. calm Roman down, when he suddenly shot up in realization. Lo and behold, Roman was his final Soulmate as well, and he had soared with love, high into the sky. “Oh no…” He suddenly spoke, causing the other three to turn to him and Virgil immediately began to tense up. Roman had a third Soulmate, though, as Virgil had been told he still couldn’t fly. “What is it, Roman?” Asked Patton from the floor, making yet another craft. And now, two months later, Virgil was done. He had been hoping, he had been hoping so hard things could work. “I have to turn in my leave paperwork at the theater! There’s no way I can perform looking like But his love wasn’t even close to enough when it came to soulbonds. They would always be more. They would always be better. And they would this!” always be…. not him. “…What?” Virgil raised an eyebrow. He knew he loved Logan and Patton. He knew they loved him, too. Though his mind liked to say it was lies, he had put all his faith and hope into their love and he would trust them with it. “People with feathered wings often go on what is known as ‘Molt Leave’ if they feel they can not perform their job during their molting. A profession such as Roman’s is generally very It was hard though. understanding of this, seeing as they are in such a visible career.” Logan explained to Virgil. He wanted to believe the others loved him. He wanted to be enough for them. But, it was obvious now that he wasn’t. He’d never compare to their “Huh. Weird.” Virgil shrugged. souls. He’d never compare to what they had. “I can’t walk down the street looking like this! People can’t see me like this!” Not him. “Why don’t you just wear one of Virgil’s coats?” Asked Patton from the floor. Not the wingless, soulless nobody. “I do not believe that any of Virgil’s coats would fit over Roman’s wings. While Virgil’s wings Not Virgil. fold in, Roman’s remain relatively straight. Also, from what I understand, molting wings feel relatively tender? It may be anywhere from moderately uncomfortable to rather painful for him to Which lead to now. When Virgil had declared their relationship over. When he said he was leaving. try and squeeze them into a coat.” Logan surmised, cuing another bout of dramatic anguish from Roman. Virgil slowly stood from the couch and grabbed Roman’s hand, pulling him to stand next “You said you understood that I was with them! If you didn’t like that I was with them, why didn’t you say something?!” Logan fumed. to him. The three of them watched Virgil, unsure of what he was thinking. “BECAUSE THEY’RE YOUR SOULMATES!” Virgil silently extended one wing and wrapped it gently around Roman, completely concealing everything but his head. Virgil sighed slightly. Virgil screamed, and the tears fell. Everything was silent.
“I… I can walk you there.” He said, quietly.
“But Virge… Then you’d have to go out..” Patton said quietly, knowing that was pretty much the “Because, I could never, ever make you choose. Because, I know that you could never choose me over your soulbond.” last thing Virgil would ever want to do. “What do you know about Soulmates?” The words left his mouth in rage, and died immediately in the battle. “You don’t have to… For me…” Roman said, his dramatics completely vanishing. It didn’t matter. “For you… Is the only reason I would do it.” Virgil said firmly. Roman couldn’t describe the Their damage was done. feeling that was welling up inside him. He gently pushed Virgil’s wing away from him and threw his arms around Virgil. Virgil sobbed and covered his mouth with his hand. “You… You are the strongest person I know.” Roman said quietly into Virgil’s ear. Virgil “Virgil, I didn’t mean it-” responded only by hugging Roman back. He was gone. Out the door like lightning, and tears falling like rain. The two of them stepped out onto the side walk, Roman hidden in Virgil’s wing. It was a quiet He wouldn’t know, but Logan immediately called Patton, and both took to the skies to look for him. afternoon, not many people were out. Virgil was mostly looking down, hoping no one was looking at him with his giant terrifying wings. The wing that wasn’t gently hiding Roman was Hard to find one man in a city though, however hard they looked. pulled as tight against him as it possibly could be.

He kept his gaze on the ground as the other lept backwards into the air. “Virge… I…” Another person to rub it in his face how alone he was. “Were here.” Virgil spoke plainly. Roman turned and looked up, seeing they had made it to the “You!” theater. Suddenly, hands were holding his face, and making him look upwards into the face of one of the handsomest men he knew. Though, to be fair he “How are we supposed to make it through the door?” Roman looked over at the single wide door. was, had been, dating the other two. A little smirk spread across Virgil’s which gave Roman an understandable amount of concern. Roman felt Virgil’s wing tighten around him and then shift upward, pull him off the ground. “You’re- why are you crying? Are you hurt?! Is my first act upon finding my true love only to hurt them?! Oh, how tragic! How dismal! How utterly horrific of me! I must-” “Hey! What are you doing?!” Roman called from inside his scaled cocoon. “Let go of me,” He pushed the other off and scrubbed at his eyes with his hands, “you didn’t do nothin’. I’m fine.” “Oh calm down. Just a second.” Virgil shifted the wing holding Roman closer to his body and squeezed through the front door, much to the confusion of the woman at the front desk. Virgil “Well, that’s one relief,” The other sighed, but then he knelt down and was brushing the hair from Virgil’s face, “But, when I find out whoever it placed Roman back down once they were in the lobby. was that hurt my Soulmate, they won’t be so happy.” “Ummm… Can I help you?” The woman asked, confused by what she was looking at. Virgil chuckled bitterly, the salty tears finding the corners of his lips as if to remind him he needed to be sad. “I need to fill out some molt leave paperwork! Or.. Maybe I can have him fill it out and i’ll sign “Don’t know if you’ve noticed buddy,” He motioned to his back, “But, I’m afraid you have the wrong guy.” it?” Roman piped up. “Nonsense!” He jumped at how loud the other became, “It was your touch that brought me flight, thus it is your final soul that is bound to mine!” “Uh… Sure?” The receptionist handed some paperwork over to Virgil who quickly filled it out. Virgil scowled at the ground, “Look. I don’t have a soul, so it can’t be me. Just leave me alone!” “You are going to have to let me out a little bit so I can sign.” Roman said quietly. Virgil unwrapped him a little bit and revealed him to the receptionist. His pursuer stayed silent. He crouched down in front of Virgil and brushed the hair, once more, from his eyes. “Oh Roman! It’s you! I didn’t know who might have been in there.” The woman laughed a little. “I don’t know what’s befallen you in life to make the sun so dark in your eyes, and I can’t take those filters away, but allow me to help, and I can brighten the sun tenfold until all you can see is its beauty.” “Yep! Hello Sandy!” Roman smiled as he quickly read what Virgil had filled in for him and then And it was all Virgil needed.
signed before backing into the safety of Virgil’s wing. Virgil reflexively curled his wing back around Roman.
He had lived, all his life, every waking moment, believing he was soulless. That he couldn’t be anybodies. He couldn’t, wasn’t, like others. And “I’ll make sure this paperwork gets to the stage manager, see you in a couple weeks Roman!” suddenly, this man swoops in and tells him he has a soul. Further yet, that it has a mate. “Thank you!” He called, waving a hand out from his cocoon. “Hey Virge, can we head up to the And he’s sobbing again, and he’s being held and whispered, too. Told that everything would be okay. roof for a second?” Roman added quietly. Virgil just shrugged and walked them to the elevator. Once inside Roman pushed slightly against Virgil and let him tuck his wing back behind him. He hears, vaguely, the other mention carrying him in flight to Virgil’s home, but he turns him down. “Thank you so much for that… I’m just so embarrassed.” Logan, his first love, currently one of his only, had promised him his first flight. And now, he may never ever get it, but he wouldn’t destroy that promise. He held it dear, closer to his heart than his soul, and he couldn’t give it away. “I know the feeling, Ro. It’s ok. I’m glad I could help. You do so much to help me always. It was only right for me to return to favor.” Virgil shrugged. “Okay, let me call for my others, and they can come help, okay?” Virgil didn’t understand, but he nodded anyways. “Oh Virge…” Roman wrapped his arm around Virgil’s shoulders as the elevator doors opened and revealed the roof, completely deserted. They walked forward together and watched for a few A few short minutes later, he heard it. minutes as the sun began to set. Roman pulled Virgil to face him and they gazed into each other’s eyes. Even with his wings not looking at their best, Roman was so gorgeous. His wings added A loud clap as shoes met pavement, and then he was being barreled into and pulled from his supposed Soulmate into new arms. something to his confidence, but he didn’t need it. Virgil felt a bit of a blush come across his cheeks as he looked into Roman’s eyes. “Virgil, Virge, thank God, thank God,” Someone wept, “I was so worried, so scared, I didn’t- I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.” “Hey uh.. Roman… I’d understand if you say no… But uh.. and no pressure or anything… But… It was Logan. Want me to fly you home?” Virgil asked, his cheeks darkening. It was Logan that was holding him. He clutched tightly to his shirt. It was Logan who came for him. Soulbond be damned.
“That sounds amazing.” Roman didn’t even hesitate. Virgil’s eyes lit up and he bent slightly to place one arm behind Roman’s knees and the other on his back under where his wings sprouted. Virgil scooped him up into his arms and Roman curled against his chest. As Virgil looked down at his love in his arms, he felt his wings spread out all the way and begin to beat, carrying them both into the air. They two of them flew off towards the sunset, On his Powerful Wings.

Had he known, he would have recognized this feeling many years ago, when he first met Logan. ~ “Thank you.” He’d say, as he leaned into Logan’s chest, wind ruffling his hair as they flew across the stars. Roman was twirling through clouds, attempting to be Peter Pan and discovering that clouds are, infact, made of water. Patton was connecting stars with his flight pattern, creating large dogs, and fluffy cats in the sky. “I always keep my promises.”
