James/Anne/Edward happens one night in Nassau, when a rum-soaked evening at the bar turns into a pale early morning, James leading them both to the back of the bar, hand in hand in hand, and they fall into bed under a lightening sky. Edward traces James’ tattoo with his tongue, up to the collarbone. Anne sings soft music into James’ ear, one hand on the back of Edward’s neck, thumb stroking the hairline. Edward’s the last one to fall asleep, listening to the rise and fall of their breathing. He licks the salt sweat from his lips and closes his eyes to the sound - James’ quiet, shallow breaths that speak of trained watchfulness, Anne’s more rhythmic slumber- and imagines he hears the ocean.
Connor’s not actually a very happy person? He’s calm, and a lot of people mistake that for happy, because he isn’t yelling or crying or brooding, but he’s got a lot of grief and hurt, and he simply expresses it in a less destructive way than most. If you were to ask Connor the last time he was truly happy he’d have a rough time thinking when that was.
Achilles did give Connor the Talk, because heaven knows he’s a growing lad and he probably had his eye on a girl at least once when he was training, but it embarrassed Connor so intensely that he literally didn’t talk for the whole afternoon afterwards. He was having a lot of THOUGHTS. And FEELINGS.
Tony likes to hum and whistle when he’s working, because he’s happy. When he’s working with Bruce or Rhodey, sometimes they’ll both break out into full-on musical numbers (and, if they’re really happy, with dancing).
The Tony Anger Scale: (I use this when rping)
Blanking someone -> Sarcasm -> Actual hurtful words -> The thing, with the intense eyes and the jaw -> Breaking stuff -> Cold, calm fury
The last thing that goes through Booker’s mind is that he is at peace, he knows what was missing, what he was raging against and he is, finally, happy.
Edward gets a giddy thrill from doing leaps of faith: he’s a bit of a daredevil, at heart, and throwing himself off a building is pretty close to the most stupidly risk-taking thing he can do. Anne, meanwhile, find happiness in the small things: singing, finding rare flowers and keeping them in her hair, the calluses of James’ palm against hers.
Edward is one of those people who gives his heart away easily: he really did honestly and deeply love James, Thatch, Adewale, Anne, Caroline- everyone. And he gets sex tangled with love, so though he wouldn’t recognise it as such himself, I definitely think he’s bisexual. Anne, meanwhile, has had a lot of sex (and enjoyed it!) but she loved Mary.
Edward’s got a big butt and stupid looking legs, and he has very very sparse chest hair, something that he’s slightly ashamed of. I know it’s not really true relative to the other characters in the game, but I always imagine him as a bit short compared to the other pirates.
Anne `sunburns easily because of her red hair, and she has a splash of freckles on her face and cleavage, and shoulders too.
Unspecified, sooo… Bucky Barnes!
Bucky hates people who walk slowly. Especially if he’s stuck behind them. He’s the kind of person who finishes looking around an art gallery in half an hour because he looks at all the pictures for about two minutes each, only bothers with the labels of the ones he finds interesting, and vastly prefers the cafe at the end. It’s not that he’s uncultured, it’s just that Steve is the arty one (and he’s all about having the right role).
You didn’t specify a character, so I am going for a blast from the past picking the Doctor.
One of the Doctor’s foolproof ways of cheering himself up, no matter what his regeneration, is looking at Earth from space. It’s so small, and so important, and so beautiful. When he looks at it, he feels a deep and fierce happiness, because this world is gorgeous.
There’s a happiness that comes with being warm: Natasha values it, deeply, and will seek out opportunities to curl up and enjoy warmth, like a cat.
Natasha likes bread. Not just dark, Russian bread, but she enjoys bread of all kinds and will just eat it dry, on its own, as a snack. Sometimes she puts butter on it. Real stuff, not margarine.
Bucky actually doesn’t eat pancakes all that often cause they’re fattening and bloaty. In fact part of the reason he likes them so much is that they’re a sometimes food. For special occasions. His normal breakfast is something healthier for workouts or building mass, like a protein shake thing or granola or eggs. He likes to vary it, now that he can.
Being dirty. Which is awkward for a pirate, but Edward has a THING about being clean and he’ll do his best to wash as much as he can (which is still less than he should). The crew makes fun of him for it, hence ‘Captain’s soakin’ himself’ when Edward dives overboard in search of doodads. Sometimes they throw soap in after him.
Edward has an absolutely cast-iron stomach. Most pirates do. He can, and does, eat things that would kill a lesser man. He ate a worm in front of Haytham once when Haytham was four, just to win an argument.
