When you smile I melt inside, I'm not worthy of a minute of your time

First Date

It hurts when you pluck unruly hair with tweezers. The cheap aftershave stings. This dress isn't comfortable. But it's going to be worth it, because this is your first date! Your first date ever. do know you're going on a date, right? This isn't something your confused and unsure about or has been sprung on you in disguise?

Never mind, there are more important questions here. Is your date someone you just met and asked out, or they a longtime friend and acquaintance? Where are you going to take them? Dinner and a movie, pizza, the junkyard, an underground fight club, or a feast or ball because you're in the olden days?

Above all else - you're going to get that good night kiss, aren't you?

How to Play
  • Comment with your character, preferences, and information about what your character would do for a first ever date. So, basically, how formal vs. how casual and where they'd take their date!
  • Reply to others.
  • Thread. This meme can be shippy, serious, or silly. Whatever you'd like.

["When the night sky wears the moon as its pendant, I shall await you at the dock."

You're not sure who left you the note, and the handwriting sure isn't familiar, but should your character decide to follow the directions enclosed, they will find a figure pacing by the water's edge.

Disrupting the stillness of the night, the man's full plate armor clangs loudly with each step. Under the helm, the man's face is beaded with sweat. Pretty unapealing. And in his right hand he clutches a piece of paper not dissimilar from your own.

I hope you weren't expecting a handsome prince or a beautiful princess because you got Steiner.
ryotaro_dojima: (Are you serious?)

I am so sorry

[personal profile] ryotaro_dojima 2017-03-13 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Dojima had almost ignored the letter considering his circumstances, but...

Well, he was a detective after all. Curiousity played a part in that.

The noise gave the guy away... a mile away. Dojima watched him for a minute or so, pacing back and forth, cringing slightly from the clang clang clang--

He took the time to light a cigarette, taking a hard pull, before letting it out in a puff of smoke.]

...So, someone set you up for this, or...?
sir_rusty: (Waaaah)

:'D Don't be!

[personal profile] sir_rusty 2017-03-13 02:32 am (UTC)(link)

[At the sound of a voice, Steiner jumps a mile and just barely manages not to end up in the waterway.]

Set up? [Steiner crumples the note in his fist, doing his best to hide it behind him, like a child who got caught with a hand in the cookie jar.]

I don't know what you're talking about! I'm just out on patrol!
ryotaro_dojima: (Suspicious...)

I love steiner and I love your username

[personal profile] ryotaro_dojima 2017-03-13 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Annd another cringe... god, what a racket. Was that really usable in battle at all? Definitely not for covert missions, that's for sure.

Still, Dojima couldn't help but be annoyed at the man's dismissal. Probably trying to save face, but...]

When I did patrol work, walking the same 10 feet over and over again wouldn't exactly go well with my superiors.

[But, as if to put the man at ease, Dojima pulled out his own note, tilting his head as he read it-- his expression and voice deadpan.]

"When the night sky wears the moon as its pendant, I shall await you at the dock." ... Sound familiar to you?
sir_rusty: (8[)

Thank you :'D I love Steiner so much

[personal profile] sir_rusty 2017-03-13 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Steiner winces at the man seeing through his clever(?) lie. Before he can come up with any other excuses, the man pulls out a familiar looking piece of paper and reads the familiar words,

Opening his mouth, he gapes like a fish as he brings his hand back around to check on the paper still clutched in his fist.
] A second note? But- Where did you find that?
ryotaro_dojima: (light em up)

[personal profile] ryotaro_dojima 2017-03-13 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
On my desk. I assumed it was a badly thought out prank...

[He glanced back up at the other man, watching him look like that fish at Shiroku's Pub for a moment longer before he continued.]

I doubt you wrote it for someone like me, so seems like we were both set up for this.
sir_rusty: (Turned around)

[personal profile] sir_rusty 2017-03-13 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
It was a set up?

[All of his bluster is gone for a moment as Steiner's shoulders sag in disappointment. So he was just the butt of a joke. And here he'd been hoping... ]

I knew that note was suspicious from the start! [Aaaand the bluster is back,] What depraved criminals would toy with people's hearts like this?
ryotaro_dojima: (what are you getting at?)

[personal profile] ryotaro_dojima 2017-03-13 04:08 am (UTC)(link)
[... Huh. So it seems like the guy had been hoping for someone, judging by that reaction. Dojima couldn't help but feel a bit bad for the guy--

--annnnd somehow he's vaguely reminded of Kanji Tatsumi, in terms for how defensive the guy got.]

Sorry I wasn't who you were expecting.

[Dojima rolled his shoulders, taking a few steps forward. Getting a better look at the guy, he actually looked pretty close to Dojima's age... definitely not a teenager. But maybe lacking some experience...]

I think 'depraved criminals' is a bit of a stretch, on the other hand. This sounds more like a prank a teenager would pull. Immature and short sighted.
sir_rusty: (Where to next?)

[personal profile] sir_rusty 2017-03-13 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Rusty can still dream-!]

I know a few teenagers who would fit both descriptions.

[Lately it seems like most of the teenagers in Steiner's life are also criminals.]

Nevertheless, I will have to be more vigilant in the future! It's unbecoming for a knight to be easily lead around like this.
ryotaro_dojima: (heh really then)

[personal profile] ryotaro_dojima 2017-03-15 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
...Heh, you too, huh? Though 'delinquent' is more appropriate for the kid I deal with.

[Dojima can't help but let out a light chuckle, but... well. They're both here now, he's off work, and that was a pretty nasty punch to the gut.]

If you're off patrol, we could go out and at least grab some drink somewhere, if that'll make you feel better.

[ Let's be real it's just something. Casual for the two of them. Even if Prompto has been preparing himself for weeks, making sure he looks fine and his lil neck-snakes are hidden under a bulky scarf. (He hasn't had the courage to tell her about his curse. Not yet. Maybe when they're closer and he can boop her with multiple kisses)

But he's letting her choose where to go - because he knows she'll pick somewhere beautiful, and then he can see her smile and capture it forever. And besides, they both deserved to have a nice day off! This won't need to be anything serious. Even if she's so beautiful and he loves her so much and he won't fuck this up. He promises himself. ]

[ It wasn't anything fancy or grand in gesture. Because, at the end of the day, Tifa was just a simple girl from the small providence of Nibel. Just a small, country girl making a life for herself in the big city. It wouldn't take much to impress her or make her happy. So when he left it up for her to decide, the young Guard's first thought was how nice it would be to just have a quiet picnic away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Lunch date. That had been his only condition when she'd asked for preferences. And being who she was, Tifa never questioned it, only gave him a time and a place to meet with one of the Prince's borrowed cars before running off to finalize her plans.

And that's how he'll find her when she pulls up to the gates, out of her normal Crownsguard uniform and in a silly simple dress, picnic basket held behind her back and politely chatting it up with one of the Gate Wardens.

[personal profile] sunnysidewalkstreet 2017-03-15 06:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ And of course, Prompto is in more casual wear as well - but, as one of the Princes, he had to look his best all the time. Just in case they were seen - and, because his mother had made him wear sleeves. For once.

His eyes light up as he sees her, however, dashing over with his warm smile. ]

Hey, Tif. R- Ready? [ He's only a lot nervous, but his smile masks it wonderfully. ] Everythings' ready on my end.

[There's absolutely no reason why Cloud should be feeling nervous. Anyone who could make SOLDIER 1st Class had no reason to be scared of anything, and the way passers-by were ducking out of his way as he passed showed that everyone knew it.

All the same, his heart's racing.

He'd only asked Tifa to show him around Sector 7 before he made his preparations to leave; he'd called it a 'date', just to build up his ego, brush off the fact that he needed her help right now, make it seem like the fact that he wanted to be near someone kind was just a transactional thing where he was the one in power. Whether or not she understood that, he's got no idea.

His fingers are knitted through the wire fence surrounding the pillar; he leans forward, letting it fight against his weight. Everything feels very still, and very bright.

He's worried she won't come, and he's beginning to get a little cold.]

[(Decided to go with mid game for the sake of the setting, let's say late Disc 2? Before the whole paradrop into Midgar and the Diamond Weapon)]

Cloud frowned as he fussed with a loose thread on his clothing. It was mostly to occupy his thoughts but it wasn't doing that good a job. Between everything that happened before he wound up in Mideel and now trying to consolidate his memories into a coherent string he had a lot vying for his attention. He'd burned some time digging around at that archaeology site, and that had turned up a key that let them sneak back into Midgar.

And that in turn lead to them being back in Wall Market of all places. He frowned as he looked around, leaning against a wall and waiting for Tifa to catch up. She said there was something she wanted to check out and had run off. He didn't want to let her wander on her own but she insisted she was fine. He couldn't really argue the point considering she spent more time living in these slums than he had, but he didn't have to be happy about it. For his own part he glared at anyone who stared at him too long. Either the story of his last misadventure in this place had finally started to quiet, or else every had better things to worry about.

Across the way someone left the barbecue shop, the smell of burned meat and sauce floating into the air. His stomach rumbled, making its own vote on the next stop on this trip.

[ So today was the big day. Today was it. Yep! The big day circled on her calendar a few times in red ink. Today was the day for her first date with Hiro. Actually it was her first date every with the added bonus of being with Hiro. To say the least, she was completely nervous.

Alya came by to help her dress up nicely and do her make up. And of course tease her best friend. aaaah it was almost too much.
hirobotics: (hands in my pockets)


[personal profile] hirobotics 2017-03-15 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hiro wasn't nervous. Or- Well, he hadn't been, until all of his friends had decided to circle up and help him get ready. Honey Lemon had tried to tame his hair while Gogo picked out an outfit that wasn't a hoodie and cargo shorts. Wasabi attempted to go over "first date etiquette" even though Fred rejected every idea while simultaneously pitching terrible conversation ideas. It would've been nice of them to help him out like this, if it didn't just make him more anxious about the whole thing. At least Aunt Cass had actually been helpful, with a kiss to the forehead, a few sweet pastries to give Marinette, and a chipper "Go get her, sweetie!"

All of which led to Hiro standing outside of Marinette's apartment door, wearing a nice shirt and clean jeans, holding a small box of desserts. He inhaled deeply, trying to both brace himself and to relax, and rang the doorbell.]
fortunette: (Awkward smile)

[personal profile] fortunette 2017-03-15 10:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[ At least Luck was a little on Marinette's side. She convinced her parents not to bombard Hiro when he first came to the door. So she quickly ran as fast as she could to the front door and opened it wide. She had an awkward look on her face but she was waving at him decked out in some cute floral-y dress and her hair down for once but a bit curly. ]


[personal profile] hirobotics 2017-03-16 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh God. She was all dressed up, too. Her hair was down and she was in a dress and she looked so cute and he honestly couldn't even believe that she did that just for their date-- And he could definitely feel the color rising up into his face.]

H--Hi. [Stop being awkward Stop being awkward Stop being-]

Y-You look amazing!
fortunette: (Twiddling fingers)

[personal profile] fortunette 2017-03-16 02:47 pm (UTC)(link)
H-Hello! I um. You look amazing too! R-really handsome....

[ Oh god. She's getting nervous. She's getting incredibly nervous. She could feel it in her bones!]

S-so um...

[personal profile] hirobotics 2017-03-16 03:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's definitely blushing a little now, and probably smiling like an idiot. Which he tries to shake off as soon as he realizes it, and then holds out the box of sweets from Aunt Cass's cafe.]

Here! Um- This is for you. My aunt tried to make macarons, and she thought maybe you should try them and see if they're any good.
fortunette: (Eeeee!)

[personal profile] fortunette 2017-03-18 03:59 pm (UTC)(link)

rolls in here late

[personal profile] deceitful 2017-03-20 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
[ Brakebills may be out of reach for him, but the rest of New York? Perfectly doable.

So it's at one of the local landmarks that he arranges to meet Margo at, Peter already there and leaning against the wall in wait. It's on the late end of the evening, closer to midnight. The sidewalk spills over with late night revelers, women in short skirts and men in pristine shoes, both striving for a certain look.

Peter's not much different, the v-neck of his white shirt bordering on obscene, leather jacket thrown over it. Nothing fancy to finish it off, just jeans and boots to go with. It's interesting, going through the motions of everything that surrounds a date again— but in the end, he supposes it'll be a harmless evening of fun, if nothing else.

Phone in hand, he scrolls through it idly as he stands by. He's early by about five minutes. ]
ibiza: (tiny smile)

[personal profile] ibiza 2017-03-21 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ Margo’s door to the City? A telephone booth. She steps out of the run down booth looking perfectly glamorous in a short silver and black dress, her shoulders covered by a black blazer. From head to toe she sparkles with the sporadic silver accessory – earrings here, a bracelet there, and not too high heels that add a couple inches of height to her stature without hurting her feet too much (a change from her usually insanely high choices in footwear). This is the outfit she’d put together specifically for a night of dancing with Peter.

Heels clicking on the concrete, she steps quickly over to Peter from behind him and taps him on his shoulder. ]

Hey, handsome. Waiting for someone?

[ The corners of her mouth pull into a smile, her lips glossed over with a darker shade of lipstick than what she usually wears. She looks him up and down, evaluating his appearance without being too obvious about it. Though he doesn’t look much different, she’s still satisfied with the way he looks. ]
deceitful: hollow-art (while i was keywording)

[personal profile] deceitful 2017-03-22 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[ The click of heels on pavement couple with the harder to detect sound of Margo's heartbeat along with her scent tips him off to her arrival— it's difficult to sneak up on a werewolf, particularly one already lying in wait. Stowing his phone in his pocket, he turns to Margo and favours her with a smile. ]

As a matter of fact, yes. A lovely young lady, roughly your height, same propensity towards compensating for it with heels, answers to Margo.

[ He does a mock double take, affecting surprise, eyes roaming over her deliberately. He's always appreciated the effort put into looking presentable, and Margo has risen to the occasion. ]

You could be twins.
ibiza: (bikini smile)

[personal profile] ibiza 2017-03-23 05:28 am (UTC)(link)
Margo? [ Her eyes widen in mock surprise and her hand goes to her chest in a clutching-her-pearls gesture. ] Why… That’s my name!

[ A moment passes and she breaks character, the doe-eyed surprise fading and a smirk replacing the expression. ] Very cute. And I’ll have you know, I’d still be wearing these works of art even if I was 5’11”. They make my legs look amazing.

[ Tucking her purse under her arm, she eyes the rest of the crowd. It’s an instinct. She likes competition. As far as she can tell, she’s about to enter a mass of pretty people, but she’ll be the only queen in the bunch. That gives her an instant confidence boost. ]

Well, should we show them how it’s done? [ She smiles devilishly at Peter, giving a tiny nod towards the establishment. ]
