Is it cool if I hold your hand, is it wrong that I think it's lame to dance?


THE DATE MEME

Here's how it works!

1. Comment to this post with your character. List the character's name, series, and any preferences you might have in the subject.
2. Using the RNG, pick from one of each of the two categories below. (Or if you'd rather pick them yourself, feel free to do that instead!)
3. The two of you are now on a date! The first list is where you took your date. The second list is your current relationship.
4. Have fun!


Locations

1. Restaurant. What better way to spend some romantic time than over food? Maybe you're at the fancy restaurant in town, or maybe you just couldn't afford anything nice, so you're at the nearest diner. Or maybe somewhere in between?

2. Games. The two of you are playing a game somewhere! You could be at a bowling alley, an arcade, a miniature golf course...the possibilities here are countless.

3. The Park. Of course, Mother Nature can provide an excellent atmosphere for romantic bonding! Perhaps you're taking a leisurely stroll through the lush grounds, or maybe you've laid out a blanket somewhere so the two of you could have a picnic.

4. Movie Theater. Or maybe the two of you are sitting next to each other in a dark room, sharing a bucket of popcorn while you're watching the latest film. Did you opt for a horror flick to keep your significant other latched to your arm -- or for you to latch to theirs -- or perhaps something they enjoy, like a sappy romance film or a cheesy action flick? Or maybe you compromised and went to see a sweet romantic comedy.

5. Skating. It's always nice to go skating, right? Are you at a roller skating rink, or did you find a frozen lake and decide to go ice skating? Which one of you needs help (you know at least one of you does)?

6. Beach. Ahh, the beach! Go ahead and set up camp wherever you like! Or if you don't watn to lay down and catch a tan, you can go swimming, or take a walk along the shore! Or if you don't want getting sand on your feet or in your shoes, go hit up the boardwalk!

7. Sunday Drive. Sometimes you don't really have a destination in mind. Sometimes you just want to drive and enjoy the scenery. Well, here's your chance to do that!

8. Amusement Park. There's plenty to do here! Take your date on the Ferris wheel, or the tunnel of love...or something more thrilling, like a roller coaster! Walk around with cotton candy!

9. Dance/Ball. School dance? Prom? Business gala? Whatever it is, you're there, and you've got a date.

10. Wild Card. Your choice! Feel free to pick something that's not here.



Relationships

1. Blind Date. You had no idea who you were going out with until you arrived! Was it a complete stranger, or did it turn out to be someone you knew?

2. First Date. You finally worked up the courage to ask this person out, and they agreed! How awkward is this going to end up?

3. Steady. You guys have been going out for a while. This is just another one of many dates.

4. Proposing. This isn't just any date for you. You've brought your significant other out somewhere to propose to them! Make sure to warm them up for the main event!

5. Married. You're not just dating, you're a married couple! Whether this is a special occasion or you just decided to break from your everyday life, the two of you are using this as an opportunity to remind each other just how much you love one another.

6. Wild Card. Your choice! Feel free to pick something that's not here.

[Facing down intergalactic threats and being thrown into a gladiator pit to fight for his life was nowhere near as anxiety-inducing as this -- and certainly a lot more comfortable to deal with.

At least, that's what Shiro believes.

Formals and gatherings aren't exactly new to him, as he's been to a couple back at the Garrison, so he's not dipping his toes into new territory here. But as he tugs at the collar of his raiment -- provided by Coran, after a quick stop at the so-called Space Mall -- he can't help but feel out of place.

Allura fits in perfectly. Especially now, dressed to the nines and smiling at him with the regal grace someone of her station is born with. She looks like she belongs here.

He doesn't, with his awkward grin and stiff posture. But he takes her arm anyway.]


Your admirers, you mean? Of course I am.

[The ease with which he says that almost surprises him. Almost.

He takes one step forward, glances back at her--]


Shall we?

[Shiro's grin is disarming, and Allura suddenly feels a twinge of insecurity flutter in her chest. She sucks in a deep breath through her nose, pushing it down with lungs full of fresh air. She could smell the perfumes and flowers from the other side of the door lingering in faint remnants on their side, inviting them into the array.]

Come now Shiro. You're the Leader of Team Voltron, not me. [She says this with a light chuckle.] Though I'm fully prepared to be regarded as some sort of remnant of antiquity - it has been, what? Thousands of decathebes since Altean royalty partook in such festivities.

[Without any further hesitation, she approaches the door with Shiro, the entrance gliding open to a lavish ballroom with holographic sculptures, exotic fauna from a multitude of interplanetary locales, and a myriad of refreshments both bizarre and appetizing.]

Just give my arm a tug if you forget the names of any of the dignitaries. [Allura leans in and whispers encouragement into his ear.] There are so many of them, and it took me an entire quintent to conduct them all to memory.

[Just as he opens his mouth to retort with something along the lines of Keith should be here instead, no?, the door parts open and just like that, they're now too far into the belly of the beast. If Shiro had been the type to back out on his word, there was simply no way he'd be able to; especially now, with countless eyes on him and Allura as the announcement for Princess Allura of Altea and Guest are made.]

Not sure if 'Guest' has a ring of admiration to it. But I can stick with that, if you forget.

[--murmured under his breath for Allura, and only Allura, to hear under the roar of applause and cheers as they step further and further into the hall.

As nervous and ill-fitted for this gala as he felt he was, Shiro still made every effort to prepare for it as best he could. Memorizing names was part of the process and try as he might, about half -- give or take a few of the more "unique" names -- only managed to settle in his subconscious. Impressive that she'd managed to memorize them all.

But not entirely surprising, either.]


As long as we don't stray too far from the plan...

[Their little 'parade' ends somewhere near the drinks. A coincidence, really. He swipes up two flutes of something fizzy that he thinks might be the equivalent of champagne and hands one to her.]

...and as long as we don't drink too many of these, I think we'll be okay.
