Kissing Scars Meme

The Kissing Scars Meme
Despite the romanticism surrounding the emotion, it can be difficult to be loved completely — not just the beautiful parts of us, but also the sad parts, the injured parts, the hidden and less-than-pleasant parts. There are marks on us, both physical and mental, that we'd often rather forget. The mental ones can just be easier to hide. As for physical scars, they can be off of our minds some of the time, but that's exceedingly hard to do in more intimate, close moments.

Whether it's to your dismay or otherwise, your partner is not looking away and ignoring your scars. To the contrary, they're providing attention in a way most heavily associated with tenderness: kissing. It may be an accidental slip off target, or they may be trying to show you that what you've done and who you've been don't matter to them now.

Does the gesture touch you? Make the walls come up once again because of the memories that are dredged from somewhere you'd rather no go? A mixture of both?

The wound has long closed, yet the pains remains; these days, however, there's someone who may be willing to help you bear it.

  • Reply with the usual: canon, character, preferences, et al. You may also want to say if you're down for smut or not, since it's not a given.
  • Be sure to include what side you'd like your character to play. Mention if you can do both the kisser and the kissed.
  • Also, feel free to talk about your character's scars.
  • Reply to others.

[He's not sure what's coloring the bathwater more, the dirt or his blood. It happened behind a diner this time, two guys who kept harassing a waitress for a little more than just some cream in their coffee. Naturally Steve spoke up, naturally he got beat up, and naturally she didn't thank him. They never do.

Oh yeah, and naturally Bucky came to his rescue. Steve's stopped questioning how he even finds him at this point, maybe his Stevie senses were tingling or something. But it's not luck that kept him from getting some bones broken or some teeth kicked out this time. It was all thanks to Bucky.

He didn't escape without his share of scrapes and bruises though, scars in the making. Steve winces as he stretches out his legs and lets the hot water soak some of the soreness out of his skinny limbs. There's something just as warm behind him - and his lips are currently traveling over Steve's fragile shoulder.
]

Buck, I'm fine. You really don't have to do this every time.

[Someone takes his 'kiss it and make it better' way too seriously.]

Book!verse Dexter okay? I hope this works for ya :)

[personal profile] darkly_dreaming 2014-06-27 10:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[He (or, sometimes, They) traces the scars his his slow blinking reptile eyes. One could almost see the gears turning behind his demon-blue gaze, see the cool curiosity flash. Dexter is never one for too much physical contact-- but those scars sure are hard to resist.

Such interesting scars on such an interesting man.

His fingers drifted out slowly, carefully. They glide and hover just above the skin, not quite touching the long slashes down the underside of his arm.]


Nasty business, these... [a small, troubled frown.] They must have bled awfully... [There's some adverse reaction here, but it's not quite as severe as a normal human's. Dexter was simply troubled by the thought of all that mess.

[Scars are something she has always collected, from the lit bayous of Louisiana, sustaining cuts from a broken boat propeller, to fields of ravens picking over their human carrion, not badges, but—remnants of memories marked into her flesh, reminders of the murderers she has been, whose imaginations she has taken as her own.

Even in her recollections, the hospital's off-white walls are always as piercing as antlers against her hazy vision, a constant pressure against her tired eyelids. She can even remember the mechanical pulse of her heart from the machines at her bedside, but all that is left now is a scar of new, raw flesh healed unevenly back together, where a knife cut into her abdomen, courtesy of the newest case involving an overexcited butcher who had resisted arrest. Lecter had clicked his tongue upon seeing it after the bandages had been removed, and since then, she had kept the scar hidden beneath oversized, sexless plaid shirts.

Graham is not someone she intended to see it. Graham, another patient of Lecter's, whose hands had also been on the trigger in the Hobbs' home, and whose constant appearance makes suspicion choke in her throat, like the bitter traces of congealed blood. He ends up unwittingly glimpsing the skin where the buttons of her shirt have parted slightly. She refuses to meet his eyes over the thick frame of his glasses, pulling the cloth edges tighter together, and walking off into the next bloodied arena that Jack Crawford has sent them into.

She doesn't think about it again until she is staring down the autopsy table late into the night, still trying to recreate the thinking of the killer, when Zeller and Price and Katz have long left. She presses a thin hand over where the scar rests, and she wonders, if they are not so similar that he bears a similar scar.]

As the one being kissed he's covered on old battle scars, but I'm especially interested in someone kissing his real face as a gesture- though this would require handwaving a very close relationship.]

[Doc has a way with a needle and surgical thread. Quick and clean and a little annoyed, efficient above all, the lasting impression is that you’re better off worrying about staying on his good side than anything as banal as a combat wound. A little terrifying, and -- Nate’s seen it, on just a couple blessedly rare occasions -- a lot more reassuring.

What Nate has is Doc’s instruction, piles of fully-stocked First Aid kits in the back of his truck, protocols he’s run through, scenario after scenario, thousands of times in his head just in case, and not much of the rest of it. Thankfully -- (thankfully, and that’s all he’s allowed in the past fifteen minutes since the shot came lest his imagination get the better of him) -- this time carries little more risk than that of infection, and a few blood stains.

It had still been too fucking close. They’d left the town, left the roads and circled up someplace they couldn’t hear the mortar fire, and Nate had stepped out of the truck and had to stop. Against better instinct, against all mandate and his own best intentions, he’d stopped, had to grip the metal of his truck’s window, knuckles white, for half a minute before the adrenaline had begun to drain away, and he’d been left breathing through the hot tide of unfamiliar rage that came in its wake.

--Brad had been hit. A ricochet from poorly-aimed AK fire, a piece of shrapnel -- not bad, nothing as far as a Recon Marine was concerned, but enough to bleed, and over the radio Nate had told him to wait, just a minute, as they’d rolled into camp.

It hadn’t been an entirely rational call; he has enough sense left in him to feel guilty for it when he shakes off whatever’s still coursing through his veins and finally grabs a kit, and again when he’s cut through the lines and his eyes catch on the red at Brad’s collar.

Closer, it’s still difficult to see anything but the red. He nods a greeting, searching Brad's face for a moment as he stops at his side, already digging through bandages and tape for gauze.]
