“When it comes to accepting yourself, sometimes the first step is allowing someone to love you and take care of you. C and I had to learn that when we found each other - the parts of ourselves that we wished to shove away were fostered and uplifted. We both found ourselves being celebrated by each other, and in that love, we could learn to celebrate ourselves. We hope to provide the same love and joy to our future companion. If you’re someone who finds it difficult to pinpoint something about yourself that you like, if you struggle to think of yourself as good or worthy, we would like to raise you up and help break through those negative thoughts. Sometimes, all you need is for someone to take care of you and point out the good. The rest will follow.”
Y spent his adolescent and young adult years wondering if he'd ever find love. He'd always been a kind of hopeless romantic - the kind to read and recite poetry aloud, strumming wistfully on a guitar, dancing with girl after girl and never truly feeling a connection spark with any of them. He didn't mind this much - as an Adfectus Watcher with the ability to keep negative emotions such as frustration, restlessness, and vengefulness, he did well in his job as a financier for the royal family, requesting tithes from citizens and earning himself enough wealth and clout to become a lesser noble. He took very little joy in his job, and often struggled to find the bright side of his career - he saw that not everyone he took from was living in a utopia, and found himself utterly bound from doing anything about it. In many cases, he settled on giving some of his exorbitant wealth back to the families he tithed from, and for those who could not provide anything at all, he would fight for their rights by pulling strings within court. He cared about his position, largely because it made his parents proud of him, and positioned his family in a higher class. But when he met C, all of that came crashing down.
C always saw himself as a hardworking optimist - often having his head too deep in his work to worry about basically anything else. As a child raised by two working-class parents, he was grateful for what little they had. He was top of his class in school, and wished to achieve a respectable job in order to support his younger sister, who was unwell for much of her childhood. C has the ability to keep positive emotions like hope, joy, and remembrance, and he would often come home from school or work with an emotion he had captured, helping imprint those emotions upon his sister in order to give her a fighting chance. The career he ended up going into was akin to hospitality - something that he was happy for, as it would be invaluable in landing high-profile gigs among royalty. Everything he earned, he gave back to his sister. Although he was a sweet and bubbly individual, he was often burdened by caring for others, and it gave him very little room to develop into his own person.
One fateful evening, C, who was working as a servant for the royal family, was serving hot espresso on a silvered tray at a nobility event. Although he typically kept to himself, when he approached a darkly dressed man in a corner to hand him his drink, they were both struck by an unmistakable connection. Call it love at first sight, if you will - although they were both veiled, as is the standard for Adfectus Watchers, it was as if a spark passed between them. The party became a dance of nervous exchanges of laughing words, a thinly-veiled flirting metaphor, a promise to meet. Neither C nor Y knew where this would lead - it was forbidden for two men to engage in romance in Florhin's Keep, yet both of them found an unmistakable attraction that they had never felt prior. What started as terse dates disguised as finance meetings turned into stolen kisses in dark alleyways, and they both knew they needed to find a way to ensure their safety and keep their love.
Luckily, Y, in making friends with the people he tithed, had made some connections and favors that he could call in. The couple was vetted and accepted into the Underground. Knowing his money wouldn't benefit him much in such a place, Y gave the majority of his fortune to C's family in order to provide continued care for his sister, and kept the rest to support the plight of the Underground. The couple settled in well in the environment of the Underground, and learned what it meant to be appreciated and accepted. C eventually took on a mentorship and leadership role among the Underground, while Y cherished his ability to relax, and worked on befriending others, finding a passion in sewing and creating practical clothing and items for others' comfort. Still, they both sought a place they could be entirely safe, having become tired of the politics of their realm after so many centuries - which made them both ideal candidates for human companionship.
As a pair, C and Y each bring unique skills and backgrounds to the table to share with their future companion. It's their hope to find a person who might be seeking a support system, who might need help recovering from anxiety or depression, or might need help developing empathetic abilities or establishing wards and personal protection from emotional or volatile situations. Whether their companion needs help cooling down from stress, needs life advice, or wants companions who can be a guide, C and Y would love to offer themselves for any and all of these things. They are wonderful at providing a balanced approach to emotionally charged scenarios, and they play off each others' strengths seamlessly. They hope to function as a big brother pair, or even a pair of "dads," to someone who feels they need that energy in their life - and they do not wish to make calls based on their future companions' sexuality or gender, hoping to keep their offer open to anyone who might feel they need their influence. They offer unconditional and inextricable love to their future companion. Y's practicality and vibrant warmth, combined with C's optimism and go-getter attitude, may end up being the perfect support system for someone who needs that extra love and propulsion in their life.
