Will they, won't they?



will they, won't they?


Oh my god, there is nothing more frustrating than when you want to kiss someone and press them against a wall, but for some reason, you can’t—or when you see two people who are obviously in love and you want to shove them into a room already. What is preventing you two from getting together? Can anyone end this?



directions

1. Comment with your character, series, preferences, etc. in the subject.
2. Roll a number between 1-15 for a prompt.
3. Reply to others and play the scenario out!
4. JUST GET A ROOM ALREADY. OMG.


prompts

1. BOSS ✖ A romance with a higher up or your boss is taboo for many good reasons, but you’re finding yourself falling in love with them anyways. Will others approve? Will one of you have to quit your job to not get the other into trouble?

2. JUST FRIENDS ✖ Talk about one of the biggest roadblocks to love ever! You want to kiss them, but you don’t want to ruin your current relationship. What are you going to do? Will you get the guts to confess and hope for the best?

3. GOALS ✖ You want to tear down a building to build an apartment complex, they want to make it a historical landmark. Opposing dreams and goals are huge roadblocks, especially if you happen to want to ‘sleep with the enemy’… literally.

4. TEAMMATES ✖ You work well together, you can depend on them no matter what, and you get along outside of the office or game. What you feel is just that happy camaraderie, not any mushy feelings of love or romantic affection! Is it?

5. DENIAL ✖ No, no way. You do not love that other person. They are stupid or just too prideful or you’re not interested in them at all. Ha, admit it, you totally are. Now go over there and admit your feelings before everyone around you goes insane.

6. COWORKERS ✖ Oh, this is awful. You really, really like your coworker, but there is a no dating policy, or they don’t date coworkers under any circumstances. Dare you make a move after hours or in the break room? It could be worse; you could have the hots for your boss.

7. POLITICS ✖ Clashing beliefs and heated debates always gets the blood pumping, and even though you have sworn to defeat them and get your bill pushed through, their eyes make your heart jump and makes you reconsider your ideals… Can you find a compromise or let bygones be bygones?

8. TAKEN ✖ Oh god. How can you confess to someone who is already taken? Why are you even feeling like this? You must never let them know. Ignore everyone who is encouraging you to take a leap of faith anyways. They are taken and that is that.

9. SOCIAL CLASS ✖ She is a princess, you are a stable boy, he is a rich lord, you are the scullery maid… Money is an important factor to any relationship, and sometimes, it can be one of the barriers. But how long are you going to let positions and titles keep you apart?

10. PRIDE ✖ You? Be in love with someone like that? Ha! No way. You are far above them, and you deserve only the best love. But… what if they are the best love and you just don’t realize it yet?

11. FAMILY FEUD ✖ One of the most famous of all the situations, for some reason, your families are fighting and as much as you like the other person, you can’t betray your family this way. But is there a good reason for the feud? Or a misunderstanding? Will true love conquer all without the abundance of death?

12. OBLIVIOUS ✖ This is the most frustrating one ever. It’s not that they hate each other or someone else is making a barrier, it’s just that they you have no idea how good of a couple you would make or how you always flirt with each other. Will one of you realize it, or does someone need to give you a push?

13. DUTY ✖ Bound by honor and loyalty, you can never cross the line that divides you and your love, be it that you swore to protect them or they serve you. Or will you? How will others react to this? Might it be considered forbidden?

14. FRIEND-ZONED ✖ Oh no, it's not what you think. You see, your best friend likes the person you like, and they are trying to go on a date with them (or get into their bed). But you can't let either of them know, because that is not what good friends do. But what do you do if your mutual crush is interested in you anyways?

15. WILDCARD ✖ Is there something we missed? Is there another scenario you want to play out, or would you like to roll the dice again? Go for it!

[ Matthew is called many things. Mad. Heretic. Seer. Scholar. Most days, if he's not required by the court, he keeps to himself in his study. It's quiet enough there that his senses are not so overwhelmed, and he can ignore the idiots that run rampant above him with too much powder on their faces and too little between their ears.

His assistant, who comes to help him when he has the time, tells him that there is a great dance to be had in the coming days. Matthew has little stomach for the courts as it is, and what use could a blind man really be at such a gathering? He takes his leave of his master, and decides a ride out into the country is in order.

He's in the stable getting his horse ready when he hears a familiar step, and cants his head to the side to address the woman it belongs to. ]


I was certain I heard that your presence was required for the coming festivities.

Are you going to tell on me? [She steps out from one of the stalls, her favorite horse beside her. To say Jess is a free spirit, well beyond her stature and class is apparent. She's willful, though often times she's a hand around the house for even some of the things most men can't do.

And they treat her better than her last house, so it's not that she's out right rebellious. But nights like this, she can't just stay at the house and clean or fetch things from storage. She's restless most nights, though it isn't any surprise she hears Matt. He's the only other person who would come out here at this hour.]

*Their new missions took them to the heart of Hanamura and even to the Temple that still had a slash through the scroll that hung up near the center.

Angela never really was able to have the time to look around, to see the sights, to take in the culture before they had to move on to the next mission in another country. It was a rare, and nice, treat to be able to be given the days off to explore but also check on any citizens who might have been injured within blasts of their occupancy.

Probably begrudgingly, she asked Hanzo to come along with her to help with language barriers that she had yet to really get over. She didn't speak perfect Japanese, but enough to ask if they were hurt and make small talk. However, s-sometimes the locals spoke really fast.

With the last of their patients seen, she gripped her staff with a sigh and sat on the steps leading towards the giant bell in the center of the stone garden.*


That's the last one for today. Thank you for your help.

[He hadn't wished to come here. Not with Overwatch in tow, but...he had begrudgingly accepted their help. It was not a place he came to enjoy the sights, or indulge in any kind of fantasy, other than the constant knowledge that his past had never been able to be laid to rest. Until now.

It only reminded him of how he could never again call Hanamura his home until every last Shimada who hunted him were destroyed and dispersed. They were only subdued, for the moment.

He swallowed, a little thickly, knowing that the Shimada family would send their assassins to kill him and anyone he brought with him on sight, in other circumstances. Regardless of what they were here for, in actuality, Hanzo remained tense the entire way, even up until the point where they stood by the dragon-decorated bell. It was a little exceptional however, for this seemingly empty place, that they could go beneath the pavilion and enjoy the sights for a moment, in silence.]


...It was nothing.

[Hanzo murmured, softly, his gaze conflicted, as it looked over the soft beauty of the landscape before him. How often he would come here with Genji, to watch the fireworks...and simply gaze out upon Hanamura.]

*With the tension of his past, obviously, weighing on his mind, Angela couldn't help but steal glances every now and then to make sure the Older Shimada was alright...Apparently, he wasn't.*

You're a terrible liar, you know. *She jested and went over to him to stand at his side and look out over the setting sun and the little pinpoints of light that began to spark up and around the city in soft orange glows. It really was beautiful and with the contrast of Mt. Fuji behind the city, it almost made her remember some of the lovely villages that decorated the Swiss Alps that were her home. Once...

With winter finally settling in, it was a little chilly out but she didn't let on that Japan's winter had beaten her Swiss Alpine Blood. It had been far too long since she had been in the mountains she once called home. Her arms tucked in at her sides and she glanced up to the moon, noticing the decoration on the face from the Horizon Base and other scars that decorated the beautiful satellite.*


You risked a lot to come here... May I ask why you agreed?

[To be faced with his inner demons and his past again was always a challenge for him to contend with. But he doesn't deny that Mercy was more intuitive than she sometimes let on. As a doctor, he supposed that was practically in her job description to know people in the way she did.

He rolls his shoulders as she very pointedly confronted him about his...less than truthful statement. The emotions he carefully contained were a bit more difficult to lash down, in any case, although he did not, to his credit, give much away. So he'd originally thought, in any case.

He does take notice of the way her cheeks are ruddy with cold and her fingers look pink compared to the rest of her, exposed to the elements as they were. But he wore the same kyudo-gi and the same hakama. The most he could do was draw more close, and then follow her gaze to the moon.]


You are my team, are you not? And the Shimada clan have long been a danger to everyone, including myself. This is no longer my home. It should matter little to anyone how I feel concerning it.

[He sighs softly, his breath frigid, forming frost before his lips. The wintry night left him feeling nostalgic, however. He longed to sit beneath the kotatsu and drink tea as he had in his youth.]

It was my duty now to oversee that the clan is destroyed, for it is but a corruption of its former self. Perhaps one day I can return to Hanamura and take back what is rightfully mine, but...Until we finish the job, I am afraid that that is not possible.

*Angela knows all too well about inner demons; they're something she faces day to day, hour after hour, plagued with the overwhelming thoughts on if she did the right thing or not on so many different things. It's rather exhausting...

Stealing another glance at him, she watches him in the silence of the moonlight that bathes him, soaking in his words.*


That almost sounds like a speech rehearsed... *She frowns and glances back up at the sky while letting her fingertips glide along the wood frame of the little shrine surrounding the bell. The frost seems to paint itself over the finish, showing truly that winter has arrived.*

It still doesn't answer why you risked your own well being to come here when someone else could have.

I'm grateful you're here- I just worry for your well being, both physically and mentally.

*Even with the cold biting at her, Angela didn't let on, more focused on the skies and the man beside her, still worrying and fretting but only doing so with the best of intentions. He's always the aloof one but in her experience, those were often the ones that need some of the most care given to them.*

It is the truth.

[A truth he has had to accept for years now, after he had killed Genji with his own hands, and only then realized too late he'd been used. The Shimada clan needed to be purged. They were not true Shimada, and not family. The ones who were blood-related had turned against him, not even questioning whether or not Hanzo truly deserved what the Counsel had deemed was worthy of death.]

I do this for myself...and for Genji. Even if he does not yearn for this as I do, I wish to right my failings, and my wrongs.

[His words are quiet, and a bit forced, now, as he finds it more difficult to open up about such things to even her.]

I appreciate the thought, Doctor Ziegler. But you needn't concern yourself over someone like myself. I simply bear my burdens as best I can.

[Hanzo reassures her, or at least attempts to, in his own way. He realizes that was just who she was, but he cannot begrudge her that, since it was her duty, just as it was his, to deal with the family.]

Are you cold? Perhaps we should head back for the night, to rest.

*She stole a glance over at him and watched him in silence.

There was only so much she could do; if he didn't want her help, who was she to push him? No one...at least, to him she wasn't. She's not really sure why that left a bitter taste in her mouth and a lump in her throat but the realization that it wasn't her place to ask, or question, swelled and she nodded slowly, taking a step back away from him to further their distance.

Turning her attention back to the skies, she just simply replied.*


Go ahead. I'm going to stay out here a little longer... You should go inside though. It's, as you said, dangerous out here.
honorstrikes: (Disquiet)

[personal profile] honorstrikes 2017-09-09 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Angela. What kind of man do you take me for? I cannot allow you to stay out here by yourself, on good conscience.

[Hanzo barked out and grabbing for her wrist almost more forcefully than he should, feeling a little angry despite himself. She could be difficult to assess when she was in these sorts of moods, and in truth he didn't rightly understand why she was reacting this way.

It's not exactly his fault, however, given his inexperience with women in general, and lacking the right...tact in these delicate situations. His isolation had made it harder for him to truly connect with others, especially those that might have held romantic interests in him when he did not find himself to be worth anyone's time.]


Anyone could sneak up behind you at the wrong moment. Especially in this place.
watching_over_you: (Angelic Prayer)

[personal profile] watching_over_you 2017-09-09 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
*Needless to say the bark startled her but also the use of her real name after he had just called her Doctor. There was minor hesitation when he grabbed her wrist and she felt the need to tug it back but there was hardly any force to it, simply pulling to try and free from his grip.

Angela knew he was awkward and lacked social skills to deal with most people and truth be told, he deserved someone with far more of an understanding than her since she was rather inexperienced herself.*


Y-You don't get to do that...! You told me not to worry about you because you're not worth it? The same goes for me.

You don't need to concern yourself over someone like myself. *She said back to him, repeating what he told her before she realized she had said it mostly out of hurt for being so easily shoved aside. It somehow made the 'pretend' moments they had with one another sting more and easier to deal with since they might have well been 'pretend'.*

It's far more dangerous for you here than it is for me. If someone sneaks up on me then it's my own fault for not being properly prepared; you're not responsible. *Her tone was quieter and she let her shoulders slump in defeat.* Go warm yourself up, please.

That's..different. You were speaking of my mental well being, which is not a cause of concern right now compared to being alone in this situation. You could be in immediate danger. You could die. As a doctor, I thought you took a pledge to do no harm, that should apply to yourself as well!

[He doesn't understand women and their emotional...overreactions to things of this nature. She was being unreasonable. But then, he knew he was wrong in this, for not addressing what they'd done before. And the unsaid expectations that lingered. Still, he isn't about to back down, especially not even because she was doing this because of what he had said, Hanzo deduced.

Admittedly he was being on the cool side, but only to keep an air of professionalism, because it was easier...easier than to admit he might have some semblance of emotion other than fondness for her. He was afraid to, afraid of it because of what could come for her in the dead of night...and slaughter her before he rightly knew what had happened. That was why when she says these things he grows more and more distraught, his demeanor suddenly changing from the brusque gruff archer to that of someone who nearly becoming unhinged in their efforts to impress upon someone a matter with urgency borne in part from paranoia as much as it was a justified instinct to protect her.]


I cannot leave you here alone, do you understand? This is not as dangerous for me as it is for you, because I am the one who is familiar with the techniques of the Shimada-gumi and their assassins! You know nothing! You do not know what you're saying.

[He holds both of her wrists now and then pulls her in, shaking her almost roughly as he leaned in, undoubtedly heated in a mixture of anger, bewilderment, and outrage.]

This is not a game, get ahold of yourself! We need you! I need you. And I will not have your blood on my hands! They will stop at nothing to get to me...and that means destroying everyone and everything I care for.

[His voice cracks at the end, his eyes glossy with unshed tears borne of anger and despair as he shakes her again. He was a broken man, this much was true. But even this was cruel, to test him like this.]

Why do you wish to throw away your life?!
watching_over_you: Made by me (Forgive my sins)

HE SNAPPED

[personal profile] watching_over_you 2017-09-10 01:30 am (UTC)(link)
Yet I was worried for your mental and physical well being. If you are in danger I can't let you continue to be that way or allow yourself to die, either! As a doctor I can't allow you to be so careless about your life. *Yet she was careless with hers. She experimented on herself, killed herself and brought herself back again and again just so she could help others. Her life meant little to her when she could help others and the only reason to keep herself safe was for the good it could potentially do for others after not trusting anyone with the knowledge of her nanotechnology.

Just like him, she had no idea how to deal with matters of the heart or the fact that she might have fallen for him in their simple meetings but the time they had spent together, up until now, had always been pleasant.

Angela noticed the split change in his person, eyes quickly scanning him up and down with growing worry and possible fear that's slightly hindered by the rough shaking he gives her, legs almost giving out from under her at the rough treatment.*
H-Hanzo please...!

*It makes itself known, her fear, when he grasps both her wrists and holds them rather tight with that look in his eyes of a cocktail of emotions that have boiled over. It soon gives way to that crack in his voice that knits her brows in worry but she's unable to tug her wrists back in such a grip as he had them. What also throws her off is hearing him say 'care for'. Surely he didn't mean her, right?

Moving her hands carefully, still held tight, her fingers ran along the sides of his face while trying to find the words to properly convey her own hurt.*
I... I didn't think my life, my company, anything of mine, was of importance to you... Just my medical practice.

I'm sorry...
