All Our Characters Derserve Something Nice: The Meme


Who in the world could hate kindness? Sweetness? Conscientiousness? All of us, on some level, like to be pampered and taken care of, from the most churlish to the most pleasant. Yes, even those grouchy grumps, or, of course, the cool-headed psychos -

Okay, maybe not all of us to the same degree.

Regardless of your disposition, somehow, you've gained a doting significant other. It seems like they find their greatest pleasure in taking care of and looking out for you. This may manifest in them simply trying to keep you entertained, happy, and healthy; it could also come in the form of them being a domestic doter, taking care of all your needs. Be it the former or the latter, there's an inherent adorableness that comes with their efforts and generosity, and in return, you have an urge to protect and care for them. They're just too precious for this world! Only, you know, there's a good chance you can a. ignore this, because you're emotionally stunted and full of wo/manpain, or b. repress it because you're a badass and would never.

Unless you've completely disregarded all that because they're just too much and you want to hold them forever.

So, how do you feel about all this? Do you wish they'd stop with this foolishness (not really)? Are you pushing them away? Are you embarrassed? Maybe you're absolutely taken with them! Just realize that you have it incredibly good.

HOW TO PLAY
• Comment with your character, preferences, their role, any info, etc.
• Reply to others.

ROLE
Usual: This is how they always are. "Caring" is in their nature.
Unexpected: They don't seem like the type...but with you, they are.
Terrible at It: They're trying hard, yet it seems like they fail at trying to take care of you. Depending on who you are, though, that may just make them more endearing.
Because You Like It: They heard you like those who are sweet and kind, so they're trying to change their ways.
Not Together: Technically, you're not together romantically, but everyone knows the truth.
The Doted Upon: What it says on the tin!

PROMPTS
Feeding: Whether they cook for you or have moments where they feed you, literally, they take your nutrition seriously.
Massage: Let them work out all those kinks.
Clean You Up: Here, they've drawn a warm bath for you.
Dress Your Wounds: If you're the kind of person who gets in battles, they'll see that you're all patched up.
Singing: Or telling stories, or otherwise calming you down.
Lap Rest: Sometimes, their lap is the best pillow.
A Shoulder to Cry On: When you have troubles, they're always there to listen.
The Calming Force: If you have moments of terror from past trauma, they're always willing to put themselves on the line to bring you back to reality, even if it puts them in danger.
Soft Kisses: Their kisses feel so good, and they're never demanding.
Head Pat: Sometimes, a simple gesture can mean the most.
Grooming: They'll fix your hair - or at least play with it - and help you shave.
Gifts: Homemade or expensive, they like to shower you in presents.
Lovemaking: The obligatory smut option, where they're a generous lover.
Protector: They look out for you, and while they don't seem that way, if you're threatened, they get like a bear protecting her cubs.
Gentle Giant: They make you feel so small and delicate.
Reverse: For once, you want to dote on and take care of them.
Unwilling: It's a wonder they still try to care for you, because you're cruel to them and rebuff them at every turn, even if you really don't mean it.
It's Okay to Cry: They never get upset because they don't want to put that on you. You want to let them know they can let it all out.

(ooc: Hm, I definitely like Terrible At It. Yeah, the second list is tough. What about Unwilling, Dress Your Wounds, or some sort of Wildcard/see what happens?)

[ooc: Okay, let's see where this goes.]

It wasn't that Loki wasn't grateful to Bartleby for showing him all the human ways throughout their time stuck on Earth, it was just that he was terrible at it as everything the other angel tried to do just didn't seem to be enough, in his mind anyway.

The former Angel of Death would not have had a clue how to survive without his Watcher friend and constantly sitting with him at the local airport arrivals lounge was the main thing he did to silently thank him, even Loki would complain about it every now and then. He'd tried to cook before, that didn't go very well and even offered to groom the other's wing, they actually turned out worse than when he started but he wasn't going to give up as he sat on the uncomfortable airport chair to think hard about what he could do next for his friend.

"What's botherin' you this time? You do know that I didn't call you out here today, right?"

It was hard to not notice when something was up with Loki. He said it more than once and he knew he was bound to repeat it over and over, but his friend was nothing less than a "simple creature" - not that it was a bad thing, of course - and that meant his thinking hard meant something was going on. Now that he thought of it, it had been a while since Loki had another idea pop into his head, but after the grooming fiasco (that was definitely unexpected) he had made it a point to repeat any attempts to help out and to just be a friend "or something".

"Normally you're complaining by this point in the game."

It had been a few hours going on a half of a whole day. Saturday and near a holiday which meant the place was about to burst with travelers. He tries to focus on a family with a few kids. Dad, who had been long unhappy and cheating, had been staring at a newspaper, his eyes not moving. Mom had been wrangling two younger kids, while a teenager sat a few seats away with headphones and a sullen expression. Obviously this kid knew a fair bit and wanted the marriage to end. He had to give credit where it was due to kids. They usually knew when something was up, even if they had no details.

He raises an eyebrow then adds, "They cancel another cartoon or something?"

Obviously that wasn't it, but the lack of complaining was actually concerning today.
