Do I have to spell it out for you?


For most people, the lines between platonic and romantic are very clearly drawn. Not true for you two; friendship and romance intermingle in your relationship, and to be honest, it's hard to discern where one ends and the other begins. You're bosom buddies. There's a spark between you. You're lovers, too, maybe, or it could be completely innocent. You're love interests. You're intimate, you're close, you're ride or die. You don't understand why romantic and platonic can't coexist. You don't need labels.

  • RNG for a prompt or choose your own.


  1. Since Forever: You've always been friends, ever since you were young, so this closeness is an outgrowth of that.

  2. Natural Connection: Some people just click. You guys go together like peanut butter and jelly.

  3. Love Everyone: At least one of you is the type to shower love and affection on everyone you meet.

  4. No More Darkness: They drug you out of your not-so-pleasant path, so you cling to them.

  5. Owe Them Everything: You owe them a solid. You're now more than simple friends.

  6. No Big Deal: You don't understand romance as separated from friendship.

  7. Cultural: Your culture doesn't discern so heavily between "lover" and "friend," a la troll society in Homestuck.

  8. Closeness: Hugs, cuddles, and kisses, oh my!

  9. All My Secrets Away: They know everything about you and can be there if you need help.

  10. The Most Important Person: They're not merely a special person to you, they're The Person.

  11. UST: Just because your relationship is unconventional doesn't mean there can't be a few unresolved issues, can it?

  12. Intimacy: More like Friends with Benefits.

  13. Feel More Comfortable with You: So, you kinda want to try this whole sex thing. May as well do it with the one you trust implicitly.

  14. No One Understands Me Like You Do: In general, not many get you. But this person does and it's such a relief.

  15. Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood: Why do people keep thinking you're a couple? Okay, by some definitions, you are, but these guys are trying to limit you!

  16. Assisted Romance: One of you has a crush on someone outside the duo. The other is supportive...and wants to give some tips.

  17. Want to Be More: You want to actually be official and exclusive.

  18. Jealousy: All the attention your - well, not partner - sort-of-significant-bff has been giving other people really raises your hackles.

  19. Unspoken: You two don't have to speak or say anything about your status; you know what you are.

  20. Say You Love Me: ...still, you wouldn't mind hearing the l-o-v-e word.

  21. Realization: The person you want to be with forever, maybe even in a completely romantic context, is right in front of you.

  22. Bros Before Hos: You won't pursue or engage with someone outside the twosome because it bothers your special someone.

  23. Upgrade: You've decided to renegotiate the terms of your relationship.

  24. Romantic/Platonic Life Partners: No matter what happens, you guys are content to continue on as you are, even to life partner levels.

Tohru | Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid | F/F

[ Sunday. Kanna is over at Riko's to play. Tohru is hanging up laundry, and Kobayashi is draped across the sofa, scrolling through her phone.

She's looking at flower bouquets. Her mother's birthday is on Wednesday, and she always gets her a flower bouquet. She never found it to be a particularly good present, but she could never think of anything better, and it seems to make her mother happy enough, so...

Bouquets. Last year's had a purple-pink scheme, so maybe this time she'll go with something warmer? Orange, or something...


[ Scroll, scroll, scroll. ]

Hey, Tohru. [ Idly: ] Do dragons have birthdays?
maid_dragon: (uncertain)


[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-14 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Eh? Birthdays....? Something lie hatching days, maybe? I guess we have those... Why?
backpains: (lil smile)

HELLO i love you for playing her

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-14 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Right, close enough. [ Probably? She cranes her neck some, to catch sight of Tohru on the porch. ] When's yours? I'll write it down.
maid_dragon: (thoughts)

I'm the one in love. ;; I just hope I'm good enough, I only play her in one game.

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-15 12:02 am (UTC)(link)
By this world's calendar.... [Hmmm. Oh!] It's today. [She continues putting the laundry up.]
backpains: (HAH??)

i wouldn't worry <3

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-15 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
Huh?! [ She bolts upright, scrambling off the sofa. ] Are you serious?! Say something a little earlier--!
maid_dragon: (surprised)

*Always worries*

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-15 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
Huh? Is it important? [She 's going to finally look over from the laundry.]
backpains: (grrk)

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-15 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
Well-- [ Momentarily stumped-- ] I guess that's subjective? But anyway!

I'm gonna go change, and then we'll head out! So hurry up and think of where you want to go!
maid_dragon: (blush!)

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-15 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
Then.... [Kobayashi-san's bedroom?] Can we go on a date?
backpains: (curious blank)

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-15 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
Huh? ... Sure. [ A shrug. ] Yeah, just gimme a minute.

[ She disappears down the hall and into her room, to pick up a better choice of outfit than her hoodie and sweatpants. It's a special occasion, so maybe she should dress up a bit? That being said, she doesn't exactly have anything to dress up in... well, unless you're going to count her work outfit, but wearing that on a day out with Tohru would just be weird...

Man, you'd think she's a highschooler from the way she's fretting over this. It's just Tohru, anyway... as long as it's comfortable, it's fine. Oh, wait, there's that one shirt her mom got her she never put on--

Okay, so it takes a little longer than a minute, but Kobayashi returns to the living room at last, dressed in proper pants and a cream-colored button-down blouse. (A tie would've definitely been too much. No tie.) She's retied her hair too, to look a bit neater. Probably as sharp as she's going to look, she figures.

Well, I'm good to go. What about you?
maid_dragon: (amused)

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-15 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I'm ready, Kobayashi-san! [She's wearing the outfit Kobayashi gave her. The only outfit not made of her own scales, the only one she's ever been given.

All she wants is to go and take Kobayashi-san's hand, or arm, and walk out of the apartment with her. On a date. She restrains herself, though.]
backpains: (lil smile)

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-15 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
... Heh. [ A smile twitches onto her lips. It's been a while since she saw that outfit. Tohru looks cute in it.

Oh, wait. Probably one of those things that'd be good to say out loud.
] You look cute, Tohru.

[ Like that... probably. And she'll offer her arm out too, while she's at it. Geesh, Tohru's easy to read... ]
maid_dragon: (wink)

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-15 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
[She beams, grabbing Kobayashi-san's arm before the woman can draw it back, and holds on tight.]

Come on. Let's go on our date!
backpains: (huhh)

[personal profile] backpains 2017-04-15 01:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. [ No protests to the arm linked through hers, and out they go. Where they're headed, though, is anyone's guess. Man, some time to prepare sure would've been nice... well, they'll figure something out. ]

Do you wanna have lunch somewhere? Anywhere you'd like is fine. [ Other than that... ] Mm, I don't know an awful lot about dating, honestly. Guess we could catch a movie, or go do karaoke, or something...? What do you wanna do, Tohru?
maid_dragon: (talking)

[personal profile] maid_dragon 2017-04-17 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
On the TV, people on dates always go to cafes, don't they? Or amusement parks... [She's been researching.]
