Because sometimes, you want to play out goofy, absolutely adorable ~feelings~ no matter your character.
|You'll outlive this person, it's a given. Their lifespan compared to yours is but a speck, an ant in the eyes of a god. You're immortal - or, at least, extremely long-lived - and they're doomed to die. Yet, somehow, you've begun to love them. Will you nip this in the bud and try to cut things out from the root...or will you let yourself be set up for inevitable loss?
how to play;
No judgement, only tentacles.
Come one, come all, and bring your non-humans, your aliens and furries
and monsters and angels; if you have none, bring those who would love to
approach those who are inhuman in shape and mind; if you have neither, be free
to alter your characters so they may fit one side, or both. Love knows no boundaries,
after all, nor does attraction; why should species deter one from pleasure and joy?

|wake up, wake up, it's only a bad dream meme|
bad dreams are ordeals, sometimes seemingly endless. when you wake up, your heart pounds, your head hurts, and you end up drenched in sweat. even if you know none of it was real, it takes a while to orient yourself.
it is pretty nice to have someone there to wake you up or to soothe you out of it and remind you that...
it's only a dream.
the usual rules apply. post with your character and preferences and then tag around, have your characters comfort others.
It's only business, nothing personal...at least, that's how it started. You were pegged as the right one for a job that involves this person; your task could be positive, such as protecting them with their consent or without it, guiding them from point a to point b, and the like - or, as seedier transactions tend to go, it could be negative. You have to take them back to a place they really don't want to return to, you have to be a jailor, or you even have to be their assassin. At the very least, helping or hurting, you'll be compensated generously (by money or, you know, by not being killed off). And that was all that mattered.
Until they mattered.
They could have shown you something you never knew existed in the world or in yourself. They could have done any number of things, yet they've won you and your feelings over. Your priorities just may shift because of this, but will their view of you do the same as soon as they learn why you were around them in the first place? For your own gain? Will they be able to forgive you?
Even if they can, will they be able to see you the way you see them?
Lucky you. For a while, you get to eschew a normal life and see life past your door; you're going on a quest! It could be for personal reasons, for fun, for profit, or to save the world as you know it. In all likelihood, it's the latter, given the natural order of things, but hopefully it's not. Whatever the case may be, you won't be going it alone, however. Whether it's just you and a partner or a true fellowship, you've got people to back you up. You may not all start out as the best of friends, that's true - still, the fires of potential life or death scenarios or the threat of losing your booty draw you closer together, and a friendship forms.
With one member of your party, more than friendship grows between you.
But wait, you have to defeat the dark lord, find the oldest wand, fight evil by moonlight, create a giant robot, or any other number of tasks. There's no time for this sort of nonsense! Actually, you may push them away because of the mission or due to past wounds that tie into said mission. Maybe, though, you can steal moments to get closer, let a romance blossom...or more.
HOW to PLAY
You can't deny you're interested in this person romantically, but normal, modern "dating" is not on the table. Whether you call a more classical or classical fantasy time period home or you're simply a sucker for the traditional, a courtship is what the two of you are about to enter!
you know what's fantastic? cupcakes. cupcakes are fucking incredible. are you upset, friend? did your cat get sick? have a cupcake. is your bff trying to take over the world with an evil corporation? have a cupcake. did your planet get destroyed by a psychotic alien and are all your friends dead? sit down, motherfucker, have a cupcake on me. shit, did you not want a pink one? that's okay, there are ten thousand of those rainbow assholes right behind you. no, they aren't magical. no, they aren't drugged. you know why? because cupcakes are already the best they can be. like you. NO, I'M NOT REALLY HERE. DON'T ASK STUPIDASS QUESTIONS. THERE ARE JUST CUPCAKES. EVERYWHERE.
