But imagine a Life/Death high school au, where they’re normal high school students who secretly work as a soul reaper/an angel of life.
Their personalities are also affected by their aspects, so Life is this vibrant and sunny person who is immediately popular with all the students, while Death is this quiet and gloomy kid who sits in the back of the class and doesn’t talk to anyone.
Since Death’s touch is poison, if they accidentally touch anyone the person will die instantly, so Death is constantly terrified of this happening and covers themselves up as much as possible no matter how hot it is, even going as far as to always wear gloves all the time. No one but Life knows why they dress like that, so whenever kids pick on Death, like “oh my god, look at that weird emo kid in the back,” Life will stick up for them no matter what.
But Death’s touch is especially poisonous to Life, and so despite their growing feelings for each other, their skin can never, ever come in contact.
Death fearing PE class because the coach makes the kids partner up for stretches, so Life goes out of their way to be their partner because they know to be extra careful.
Life always carrying an extra pair of gloves in their backpack because some kids in their class are assholes who think it’s funny to steal Death’s gloves and hide them.
Death being absolutely horrified that they have to reap the soul of the class pet that Life is so attached to. They can’t forgive themselves for days, especially since Life is so visibly upset, until Life finally talks to them and assures Death they understand it had to be done.
Life forcefully bringing Death along every time a new puppy or kitten is born somewhere in the town because Death could use some happiness. Maybe then they wouldn’t always be so glum.
Life joining the student council just so they can accept Death’s request form to skip swimming lessons, because no one else will let Death do it since they won’t explain why.
Life and Death always partnering up for history projects together because they’re the best students in the class. They lived the history.
Death being an excellent cook because they have to bring lunch every day to avoid being a part of the rowdy lunch rush.
Life dragging Death to a school dance for the first time ever. Death mopes around in the back of the gym, jealous of all the people dancing with Life because they can never do that.
Life wanting to kiss Death so badly that eventually they tear a piece of paper out of their notebook, place it over Death’s lips, and kiss them through the paper.
