How they cuddle (◕‿◕✿)



Desmond: He loves to wrap his arms around you while he’s playing video games, his controller in your lap and his head nestled in the crook of your neck. During loading screens he’ll sneak in little pecks to your cheek and neck, and smile against your skin whenever he hears Shaun yell at him for his “public and obnoxious display of affection”.


Ezio: He wants physical contact constantly. That's just the kind of person he is. It didn't take you long to figure out that if he doesn't get a hug or kiss every now and then, he starts to feel a bit lonely. He likes to gently run his hands down your sides and arms when you cuddle, or when you're lazily lying in bed. It drives you insane (in a good way, of course) when he leans in and whispers loving words in Italian, and your heart skips when his long eyelashes brush your cheek. 


Altaïr: He’s not one for cuddling. He’s had a strict childhood, and is used to being shown little affection, and it doesn't help that he's the cockiest man on earth (no pun intended). But he’s got such a soft spot for you, that when you give him your trademark puppy dog eyes, he instantly melts and laces his fingers with yours and sit down for a quick snuggle. When you do finally rope him in, he loves to kiss your hands, paying special attention to each knuckle. He's strong, athletic, and very standoffish, but god does he love you. 


Edward: The only thing he loves more than money and rum is you and your beautiful smile. He's obviously not the softest man in the world, but if there's one thing he'd never get tired of, it's you touching him. Cuddles, hugs, kisses, playful butt slaps, he doesn't care. As long as he can have his hands all over you, he's perfectly satisfied. Sometimes he simply holds your hand while driving (Edward isn't one to listen to safety precautions), sometimes he likes to snuggle and play with your hair, but usually he'd rather just hold you and make out. Cheeky welsh bastard. 


Connor: The thing about Connor that you love the most is his how sweet and shy he can be. When you first started dating, he was scared to hug you tighter than what could be described as a friendly pat, because he didn't want to hurt you. But as you grew closer and you assured him that you'd love some hardcore snuggles, he became much more comfortable. He especially likes to wrap his arms around you and rest his chin on your head. The feeling of your bodies pressed together gave him much comfort, and despite his large and sometimes scary appearance, he's really a sweetheart who craves affection. Your affection, specifically. Sometimes you'd do the dishes even when it wasn't your turn, so you he'd come sneaking behind you and slide his arms around your waist while you scrub the pots and pans. The poor thing hasn't even caught on to your tricks yet. 


Shaun: When you first started dating, you never imagined Shaun would be as affectionate as he is. He's not a fan of public affection, as seeing other couples on the street shoving their tongues down each other's throats makes him quite queasy, and something inside that snarky head of his urges him to complain about it very loudly. But he has no qualms whatsoever to you touching him. While we won't say no to a cuddle every now and then, he'd rather just kiss you. Again. And again. And when you are cuddling, he usually pays more attention to showering you with light kisses than actually enjoying your warm snuggles. (He'd never admit it to you in a million years, but he really just does this to hear you giggle when he gently kisses every inch of you, because your laughter is like sunshine to him.)
