the most self indulgent asgard sub-storyline

Sophie had insisted. It wasn’t right that she was the only one who got to wear the visible hints of their relationship (frequent hickies aside), and so Connor is about to shop up to his pre-dawn training with a slim ring on his finger. It matches Sophie’s engagement ring as much as possible without the stone, just a delicate burnished silver pattern. He already had an idea for their wedding bands from that last trip to the shop and they were actually doing this parents or no parents and wow. The world is ending, they’re almost certainly going to die in the war, and Connor just realized he feels like his life is only now beginning. Between Sophie and the Brotherhood and certain relationships he’s made and lost but grown from…

“You’re nearly late.” Altair is on the next rooftop, waiting as Connor paused to get lost in his thoughts. His head snaps up, as if he only just realized where he was (and that it is not the correct roof), but instead of scurrying over sheepishly he breaks out into a huge grin.

“Yeah.” He slides over on a ramp of shadow, landing next to Altair with hardly a whisper of a footstep. “I’ve got a question for you.”

"Oh?" Altaïr raises an eyebrow and hides a smile, considering whether to make Connor wait and get started on his run. He's always been a strict teacher.

But he relents. Almost late isn't the same as late, after all. And a teacher answers questions.

"Ask it, then." He nods.

"How'd you know?" He blurts it out, almost awkward in his eagerness to ask the question. "About Maria... how'd you know she was the one for you?" It's not the sort of question that Altair would probably be expecting -- he showed up for training, after all, and he was half-expecting Altair to not entertain him.

Connor often has questions for him, almost always good ones, so Altaïr approves of the trait—but even this surprises him. That he is married is not a secret, nor is the fact that he is deeply in love with his wife (or so he assumes), but their relationship rarely comes up in conversation with the recruits, not even those he's closest to.

"That's an interesting question." But not one he is necessarily unwilling to answer, and he hesitates for a moment as he thinks about what the answer is. "Would you be disappointed if I said I just...knew?" He lifts his shoulders in a half-shrug.
