...are we dating?

The Dating Meme


Dating is, when you think about, really weird. It's a totally different thing for different people. Some are friends for years before they date; others start dating on the same day they met. Sometimes, there's a lot mushy stuff involved; other times, the couple acts just like friends. None of this is necessarily right or wrong.

Whatever it is, your character and the character you reply to are now dating. How? That's up to you. Whether it be awkward or not, the relationship will be uniquely theirs.

How to Play
-Comment with your character and preferences.
-Reply to others.
-Have fun.
Prompts


1. Best Friends to More: Oh, wow, you've been this person's friend forever! But then you realize you have feelings for them, and they for you. Will things change when you change your status?
2. The Sudden Decision: Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here I am, date me maybe?
3. Confession: You've had feelings for this person for, like, ages, and you want to ask them to date you. Or maybe the confession just slips out...
4. Hate Date: You really don't like this person; actually, you hate them. But you don't want them to be with anyone else!
5. I Guess We're Dating: Huh. We are dating, aren't we? Everyone else knew before us...
6. Slow Decision: For the more mature and seasoned, they might fall into something sweet without needing to rush.
7. Been Burned Before: One of you has had a bad relationship, and now both of you have to bear that brunt if you want to date now.
8. Innocence: This is your first real relationship, so you have to figure it out together. That's harder than it looks.
9. Courting: You're from an old-fashioned world or are old-fashioned yourself, so it's courting, not dating. Still, maybe you can sneak away from the chaperon.
10. First Date: Your first true date. What's it like? What would happen if...I don't know...it went bad?
11. First Kiss: Of course.
12. First Time: Together or in general.
13. The Perfect Couple: The couple that never argues and is more like best friends than a couple.
14. The Not-So-Perfect Couple: Ugh, these guys always argue and seem to despise each other. Why are they even together?
15. Comfortable: You can do anything around or in front of your honey.
16. Not Cut Out for Dating: One of you is anti-social, a jerk, a stoic badass, whatever. You're not dating material...yet here you are.
17. Getting on Each Others' Nerves: Spending too much time together can get even the most patient people annoyed with the person they're dating.
18. Know What You Like: It's almost like they can read your mind, whether it be in the kitchen, at the store, or in the bedroom.
19. Trouble in Paradise: Maybe it's external factors, or perhaps internal, but whatever the case may be, things aren't looking so sunny.
20. Test the Strength: Someone else has an obvious crush on the person you're dating. What do you do?
21. Pregnancy Scare: Hey, it happens. So, how do you feel when the period turns up missing?
22. Getting Serious: Things are getting way deep with this person. They may be the one...or maybe they think they are, while you're not too sure.
23. Old Hat: This relationship is dull. Can you get back the spark?
24. End It: You don't want to date them anymore. You want to see other people.
25. Taking It to the Next Level: You don't want to date them anymore. You want to marry them.
26. FREE SPACE

I don't know what else but at least 11 :v possibly 10 and 16 too??

[Cloud still doesn't know how this happened, but confused and uncertain or not, he doesn't really... mind. Not that he can't help but wonder how long this might last since it's not like anyone's really paid much... attention to him before and that's for a reason, isn't it?

But the hand around his is warm, and maybe it's a little funny Noctis is still managing to fish (so far) one-handed. Tilting his head back from watching the stars, Cloud bites his lip, hesitating.]


... Any bites?
thenightsky: (☾45)

Just cute. So much cute.

[It's not often that Noctis finds someone he's this comfortable around and maybe that has a lot to do with why he found himself drawn to Cloud. The other had never treated him like he was different; like he was untouchable. The same kindness the blonde showed to everyone had been used on Noctis.

And the prince had fallen. Hard.

Absently his fingers tighten around Cloud's as he looks away from the water to glance at the blonde, lips curving into a lopsided sort of smile.]


Not tonight. Seems like all the fish are busy doing other things.
backwatertrooper: (smiling blush - and so cute)

:D yay good

[personal profile] backwatertrooper 2017-03-22 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's the smile just as much as the slight tightening of the grip around his hand that makes him meet the smile with a small, shy one of his own and decide that, uncertain or not... it should be okay to enjoy this for however long it lasts, right? Leaning forward to peer into the dark water beneath the pier, he can't really see anything; it's perfectly still.]

... Sorry. Guess we should've gotten here a little earlier. [Grimacing a little as he straightens up again, Cloud meets Noctis' gaze and ducks his head, stomach suddenly warm and fluttery, and it's his turn to squeeze their joined hands a little tighter.] ... At least, it's not cloudy.

[If he was feeling a little bolder, he might have made a joke about how the sky matched Noctis' name, but as it is, he's just happy it's a clear night, and that the warm air and distant chirring of insects makes it easy to, for now, not think about another star-strewn night. This is important in other ways.]

[It's so dumb that she's so nervous about this. It isn't the first a boy had asked her out on a date, but it would be the first real true date she's ever had.

And why she's going on it, and why Noctis even asked her is beyond Aqua right now. She figures there was a little bit of encouragement from his friends. Gladio and Ignis advising Noctis, and Prompto encouraging her. Why else would the blonde want to go out shopping with her?

To pick out the perfect outfit that his best friend will like obviously. Aqua was a little too nervous during the whole endeavour to really enjoy the outting, and some of his choices were a little much. A long ball gown or a flared dress? Not exactly functional in case they run into some daemons.

So instead it's something simple. A dark collared halter top with violet decorative designs, tall black boots and leggings, with just one of her blue sashes tied around her waist and her long white one to be used aa a shawl. Simple, but powerful and cute. At least according to Prompto.

For now there's little she can do but wait for Noctis to arrive at their designated meeting place. She only hopes that Prince hasn't nodded off somewhere and left her in the lurch.]

[Whereas Aqua had been on dates before, Noctis had never. At all. One couldn't really count the dinners he'd been made to go to with visiting nobles or delegates because he hadn't cared about any of them. Hell, he and Luna had never done anything like this either so it was probably a good thing that the wedding wasn't..really...a thing.

Needless to say, a certain Prince had looked to Gladio and Ignis for help and it was probably a really good thing. (Prompto wouldn't have given the best advice, let's be honest.)

His suit jacket and tie had been left behind, leaving the prince in a pair of well pressed black slacks and a dark gray, almost black button up shirt that was neatly tucked in but the top few buttons had been left undone. At Gladio's suggestion the sleeves had been carefully folded to his elbows to make him look just a touch more casual but still like he was taking the date seriously. The look was finished off with a pair of black dress shoes that had been cleaned up and polished and his usually untameable hair been gotten under control a bit.

He felt so weird all dressed up like this..but really it had more to do with his nerves over going on a date with Aqua.]


...Hey. [He was a few minutes late as he stopped a few steps away from his date, one hand in his pocket while the other rubbed at the back of his neck.] Sorry I'm a little late..
ghostdrives: (♒ On second thought I guess I'm not)

[Honestly, after all the travelling and fighting and mishaps that they've all gotten into on the road, she really shouldn't be as nervous as she is. Aqua finds her focus and her eyes solely on the blue star charm resting in her hands, trying to find strength and courage from looking at it. She sincerely hopes this goes well, and every once and a while, wonders about the two boys and what they would think about all this.

One would be excited and tease her no doubt. The other would probably size Noctis up. It makes her smile fondly just thinking about them.

Noctis's voice is enough to bring Aqua out of her thoughts as she looks up and at the Prince, taking in his own attire. She was half expecting him to wear his usual suit jacket, but he looks good... even if his hair looks a bit odd like that. Maybe she's just used to his usual style.

She tucks away the charm into a small black pouch and smiles softly at him. Maybe if she just doesn't focus too much on this being an actual date, it might calm her nerves a bit more.

She shakes her head, fully turning to him with a deep breath.]
That's alright. I wasn't waiting long.

[Although she had been wondering if he got stuck with his fishing again...]
