[Y/N] was in a different class than most. She had that boring family with a ton of money. Although she herself had nothing to show for it, the oddball out wearing casual clothes like anyone else at her high school. Although, she was not the only one strange to her family. There was this troll that also dressed differently than his own. Now trolls and humans had been going to the same school and communicating for over a sweep now, or as they say it.
Walking through the halls of Skaia High was [Y/N] in a [color] dress, tights, and boots, while this troll wore something straight out of the 1950’s. She always thought him to be nothing but a flirt while he thought she was just a rich stuck up bitch. That was until the day they bumped into each other.
“Sorry,” [Y/N] apologized. “I wasn’t watching where I was going.”
“No, it wvas all my fault, doll,” the wannabe greaser said. Their eyes met and they’d realized who they walked into. [Y/N] straightened her dress and looked at him curiously. “I gotta go,” the violet troll said starting to walk away.
“Wait,” [Y/N] grabbed his arm. The troll turned in shock. “I feel we’ve been in the same school for a whole now and I’ve never properly learned your name.” She was being polite because for some reason, with her, he didn’t instantly try flirting.
“Cronus, Cronus Ampora,” he smirked. He was surprised by her manners. The two had feared the worst from each other.
“I’m [Y/N],” she said. “I’ll see you,” she smiled and waved continuing onto her next class. Cronus just stood there awestruck by what just happened.
“[Y/N]!” Cronus called after school. [Y/N] was sitting on a bench outside reading [Book Title] while waiting for her parents to come in their fancy, expensive car.
“Hi,” she smiled looking up at the troll who looked like he had been running. Cronus sat beside her and watched her close her book.
“I feel I may havwe misjudged you,” he began.
“You misjudged me?” she laughed. “I always thought you were just a desperate flirt.” Cronus looked shocked. “Sorry,” [Y/N] quickly apologized.
“It’s fine,” he said. A loud horn interrupted them signaling [Y/N]’s car was there to pick her up.
“Well I have to go,” she stood and put her book into her bag.
“Can I see you tomorrowv?” Cronus asked.
“Sure,” she nodded and went into the vehicle waiting for her.
“Who was that you were talking to?” [Y/N]’s mother asked from the passenger seat.
“A new friend,” [Y/N] answered staring out the window at him as they began to drive off.
“I don’t think so!” her mother said snapping [Y/N] out of her daze.
“Why not?” [Y/N] pleaded.
“It’s not that he’s a troll, if that’s what you’re thinking,” she told [Y/N]. It’s the way he dresses. He is obviously no good.”
“I thought that too but now that I’ve spoken with him I see now he is different,” [Y/N] explained.
“No, and my word is final. No more talking to this strange fish boy!” Tears began to form in [Y/N]’s eyes and as soon as the car stopped she ran up to her room.
“I’m not coming down for the rest of the night!” she yelled. She could hear her brother ask her parents what was wrong but covered her ears so she wouldn’t have to hear the rest.
The sun bore into the bedroom unwanted waking [Y/N] up. It was then she realized she had fallen asleep. Groggily she sat up and prepared for school. She wasn’t going to let her family choose her friends for her. First thing she’d have to do is tell Cronus that her family didn’t approve and find them alternate means of seeing each other. They couldn’t stop her from seeing him at school, right?
Grabbing a piece of toast she ran out the door and began walking to school to avoid anymore confrontation with her parents. What she didn’t expect to see was the very troll she was thinking about being on the opposite side of the road. He was headed in the same direction that she was.
“Cronus!” she called. His head swiftly turned to her direction. First surprise was on his face quickly replaced with a smile. Both of them ran to the nearest crosswalk. [Y/N] hit the button. The hand symbol disappeared to show the walking man then [Y/N] ran across.
“This is a surprise,” Cronus began.
“I had to avoid my parents. There is something serious we need to talk about,” she began to explain everything that had happened on her way home the previous evening. Cronus’ violet eyes filled with sadness.
“I don’t vwant to cause you any trouble,” he began.
“No, because I choose my own friends! You are not allowed to just ignore me because of my family. We had just finally started to get to know each other.”
“Maybe vwe could get to knowv each other more on a date?” he asked.
“Are you serious?” [Y/N] said. Cronus nodded. “Alright then, let’s start project keeping our relationship unknown to my parents with forbidden dating.” They both laughed.
“Wve better hurry or vwe’ll be late for school!” Cronus grabbed [Y/N]’s hand and began dragging her to the hall of learning that they both shared.
The courtyard was full of all the humans and trolls that attended. They saw Kankri, most likely lecturing some poor kid, Terezi, who was a freshman, was drawing with chalk all over the sidewalk, and Mituna falling flat on his face only for Latula to help him back up. These trolls [Y/N] knew before even talking to Cronus. It made her feel worse about not giving him a chance sooner.
The bell rang signaling it was time for them to go to class. Cronus wouldn’t let go of her hand the entire way.
“Just stay hidden!” [Y/N] whispered.
“I knowv I knowv,” Cronus replied from behind a bush. [Y/N] had convinced her parents that she was going with some respectable friends. In reality she had gone to a diner with Cronus. Their first date was a success and Cronus had a surprise for the next one.
The fancy [Expensive car type] car pulled up. [Y/N]’s mom rolled down the window. “Where are your friends?” she asked.
“They left already,” [Y/N] lied.
“Well let’s go, I have important things to attend to.” [Y/N] sighed and climbed into the car. Carefully she waved goodbye at the bush. She saw a grey hand peak out and wave back. A huge smile appeared on her face and already she couldn’t wait to see the surprise date Cronus had in store for her.
It was late one night, long after midnight, when the sound of music could be heard outside of the [Last name] estate. The music sounded like a guitar. [Y/N] opened her bedroom window and looked out to see her matesprit. He smiled when he saw her, not slowing his playing for a moment. [Y/N] put her finger to her lips and Cronus finally stopped.
“What are you doing here?” [Y/N] asked. “What if my parents see you?”
“I’vwe come to rescue the princess,” he replied. A blush formed on [Y/N]’s cheeks.
“Do you know how late it is?” she said.
“It’s Saturday, so does it matter?” he began. “Besides trolls are nocturnal anyways.”
“Lucky for you so am I,” [Y/N] smiled. “Just let me get dressed and I’ll be right down. Lay low for now, OK?”
“Just hurry, I vwant to showv you our surprise date.”
Quickly, [Y/N] stripped her night clothes and pulled on something more suited for going out late at night. The entire outfit was [f/c]. She slipped on some sneakers and grabbed her [themed] jacket. Down the stairs and out the door she went to find Cronus hidden behind the mansion gate.
“Follow me,” he whispered leading her to what looked like a very old car.
“Is this yours?” she asked.
“It needs a lot of vwork, but yes,” he patted the hood. “It’s enough for vwhere I’m taking you, Kitten.” [Y/N] giggled.
“I’ll just trust you for now,” she said.
“After you,” he opened the door and she stepped into the passenger seat. The interior seemed like it had just been cleaned. Cronus started up the car as soon as they were both buckled in and ready to go.
“Can I play some music?” she asked.
“Sure, wvhatevwer you vwant,” he opened the glove compartment to reveal old tapes. She picked out [musician/band] and placed it in the tape player. Time swiftly went by and it wasn’t long until they reached their destination. Cronus had taken her to one of those drive-in movie theatres.
“I didn’t even know these still existed,” [Y/N] said astonished. They turned off the radio and drove up to the ticket booth.
“Twvo, please,” Cronus sad. The guy looked like he had never seen a troll before as he collected the money. The guy handed Cronus the tickets. “Enjoy your movie,” he said trying to resist the urge to say anything about the violet blooded alien. Cronus drove forward and parked the car.
“Wvhat do you think?” he asked.
“I’ve always wanted to go to one of these but I thought they got rid of them all,” [Y/N] said. “Can we get popcorn and drinks?”
“Anything for you. Wvhat do you wvant to drink?”
“[favourite soft drink] please,” she replied. Cronus kissed her nose and left the car for the refreshments stand. Previews began to play and Cronus was back by the third one. He handed [Y/N] her drink and they both began to eat. The previews finally ended and the movie began. It was one of those old black and white horror films, [Y/N] could tell since she loved them. Then in huge letters it was revealed to be [Movie title]. “How did you know I liked this movie?” she asked.
“I didn’t. Just thought it’d be interesting and maybe if you got scared you wvould hold onto me,” he smirked. [Y/N] laughed. Of course, that would be like him.
“Too bad for you horror movies don’t scare me, but I’ll hold onto you anyways,” she whispered. The two of them held each other close throughout the movie. At one point when Cronus left his mouth open in shock [Y/N] snuck in a piece of popcorn making him cough. Credits began to roll and [Y/N] yawned.
“Let’s get you home,” Cronus said pecking her cheek. She just nodded and lay her head on his shoulder sleepily. He started up the car and by the time they reached the manor [Y/N] didn’t even realize she had fallen asleep. She was being shaken awake and groaned before opening her eyes.
“Five more minutes?” she rubbed her eyes then opened them wider when she realized where she was. “Sorry.”
“It’s fine, just don’t wvant my baby doll getting in trouble,” Cronus pecked her lips. “Better get inside before you’re missed.” [Y/N] nodded and left the car.
“Thank you, for tonight,” she said as she shut the passenger door and waved as he drove off. Slowly, [Y/N] walked into the house only to find an unhappy mother and father giving her looks of disapproval.
“You’ve been seeing that troll boy haven’t you?” [Y/N]’s mother asked. All of them now sat in the living room. “Even after I specifically told you not to.”
“You don’t get to choose my friends!” [Y/N] screamed. “He’s actually very sweet and you’d know that if you met him!”
“I hear his whole family is kooky,” her father put in. “They may claim to be royalty but they are a poor excuse for it.”
“I can’t believe what I’m hearing,” [Y/N] said.
“This will be the last time we discuss this. If we find you with any of the Ampora family we’ll pull you right out of school and your lessons will continue at home!” her mother threatened.
“How can you think this is right?” [Y/N] stood. “You can’t control my life and you can’t take me out of the only school I like!” she ran out of the living room, and instead of upstairs, she ran straight out of the house. Her parents called her name, but she ignored them. The running didn’t stop until she reached the neighborhood park. Panting she sat on the closest bench and began crying. Her heart felt heavy and her mind lingered with thoughts of what to do. How could she face her family again? All she wanted was to live her own life, earn her own money. She wanted her name to be her own.
The sun began to rise and [Y/N] wiped her eyes with the back of her hand. Only place she wanted to be was by her boyfriend’s side. He’d be asleep now, but she didn’t care. Time to stand and start running again.
The Amporas lived in a huge ship near the water. It would take [Y/N] about fifteen minutes to get there from the park. She didn’t care. All she needed was to hear his voice and feel his arms around her. Knocking on the door the youngest Ampora opened it. Eridan Ampora wore a striped scarf, violet cape, striped black and blue pants going vertical, and the well known hipster glasses.
“Is Cronus home?” [Y/N] panted.
“Yeah, but he’s asleep,” Eridan answered, but that was enough to have [Y/N] barge in. “Hey!” Eridan yelled. It didn’t take long to find his room. The door was open to reveal the sleeping troll on a human bed. He had posters around his room of Earth movies like Grease and The Outsiders. [Y/N] snuck in and sat on his bed. He looked so cute when he was sleeping. Instead of waking him she slipped in and wrapped her arms around him. Closing her eyes, it didn’t take long for her to fall asleep.
“Hey, wvake up,” Cronus shook [Y/N] awake. She looked at him sleepily. “Wvhen did you get here and wvhy?” [Y/N]’s eyes widened and she began telling him everything tears threatening to fall. “Shh, it’s OK, wve’ll find awvay to make it alright.” He kissed her forehead. A knock at the door interrupted them. It was Eridan.
“She is wway out of your league,” was all he said before going into his room across the hall. The door had a Harry Potter poster on it.
“Just ignore him. He’s been jealous since I got a matesprit and he doesn’t,” Cronus explained.
“What are we going to do though?” [Y/N] asked. “I don’t want to ever leave you!” More tears escaped.
“Please don’t cry, baby doll,” he tried to wipe them away only for them to be replaced with more tears. “Maybe I can see if Dualscar can help.”
“My father says your whole family are kooks. They won’t listen,” she sighed.
“You can move in with us?”
“Bad idea, plus until I’m out of High School they still have control over me.”
“No they don’t. Look, you’re in the same grade as me and wve are both almost out of there, you just havwe to stay here until graduation. Then both of us can find our owvn place. It vwwon’t be that had vwith all of us. Trust me,” he kissed her nose.
“Can you come with me to pack then?” I don’t think I can face them on my own,” [Y/N] mumbled.
“I’ll still ask Dualscar to come as assurance. Vwe’ll get this vwhole mess straightened out. Nobody is allowved to take my kitten awvay from me!”
It was a mess when the Amporas showed up at the [Last name] Estate. There was arguing and more tears from [Y/N]. Cronus led her away from the chaos and to her room to get her most valuable things and clothes. Her brother looked into the room.
“What’s going on, [Y/N]?” he asked.
“I’m going away for a while. I can’t be around mother and father anymore,” she hugged him. Both Cronus and [Y/N] made a few trips back and forth to the car. [Y/N]’s parents were too focused on insulting Dualscar and his whole family to notice anything. Cronus gave Dualscar the signal. By the time Dualscar couldn’t take the arguing anymore [Y/N] and Cronus were already gone. The two would be away from [Y/N]’s judgmental parents and [Y/N]’s mother would only regret it once it was too late.
