The Love Confessions Meme

 
THE LOVE CONFESSIONS MEME


Confessions of feelings are rarely as nice and romantic as they seem in the Hollywood flicks. Sometimes, they're screamed across an empty house as someone leaves. Others, they whispered across white pillow cases as bodies lie close together in the dark. Of course, these feelings may not be returned, but it may be the only shot you have.

If you even meant to spill, anyway.

How to Play
- Comment with your character, putting your information and preferences somewhere in the comment.
- Comment to other characters. Roll the RNG to get your prompt, or pick one.
- Play out the scene and take it whatever direction you'd like.
- Be cute and fun or sad and depressing.

Prompts

1. Planned: You've been planning to tell this person how you feel, and you know exactly the way to do it.

2. Spontaneous: Uh-oh, it just slipped out! Maybe you weren't thinking, maybe it was a fight, but somehow, your secret's out.

3. Heat of the Moment: What's better than calling someone's name out in the trows of passion? Why, telling them you love them, of course!

4. The Last Time: You're coming clean with your feelings because you're dying, moving away, leaving the planet, going to war, whatever. Might as well when you'll probably never see them again.

5. Jealousy: You've seen the one you love in the arms of another, and you just have to let your feelings be known so they don't end up with the wrong person! Selfish, what's selfish?

6. Drunk: A drunk man's words are a sober man's thoughts, so maybe you should be careful what you say, or you'll be telling your best friend you have the hots for her. Awkward.

7. Lie: You don't actually have feelings for this person, but you need them to believe that you do in order to use them, get something, or perhaps to not hurt their feelings.

8. Sweet: You confess...and they feel the same, and have wanted to say it for a while. Oh, how cute! Go on and enjoy your cute little romance.

9. One-sided: One of you confessed, but it's completely unrequited. Can you still be friends, or is that too painful?

10. Forbidden: Your love for this person is totally uncool - not allowed, even. But it has to be brought to light, preferably by you.

11. Unfulfilled: While you both love each other, you decided mutually that this can't go any further.

[Of course it would be planned. Kelly had spent days picking over the time, the place, the words. Should she take the flustered and nervous approach? Or stay cool and collected? Maybe shout out her feelings in a moment of pre-scheduled spontaneity? She couldn't skip on the details, not if she was going to get this right.

The outfit she turns up in on the day is as carefully chosen as the rest of the day's schedule. She'd arranged a meeting place somewhere away from the apartment and places of work—neutral ground—and at a time of day when there's enough time to talk, but approaching other duties soon enough to allow for viable escape excuses should things crash and burn. Which Kelly has calculated they won't. Hopes they won't? She knows she can't really know...

So! There she is, waiting for Wally in the same cafe they visited on her first day of the Thor, running the lines through her head again.]

[And here comes Wally, strolling up to the cafe. He's looking forward to hanging out with Kelly for a while, outside of the apartment that is. That place tends to feel really cramped.

Anyway, he walks up to her and grins. This sure is some deja vu.]


Hey, Kelly. Been waiting a long time?
redhotmagma: (...When you can't even dress yourself?)

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-05 10:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[It sure is cramped. Which makes it...really, really awkward when you start liking (think you've started liking?) your only roommate. And it's probably going to start feeling much more cramped if this doesn't go well, but, well, that's the risk!

Speaking of deja vu, there's a cup of Wally's usual drink (complete with all the necessary trimmings) waiting at the table for him. Kelly smiles warmly back at him while stirring her own brightly coloured cup of tea.]


Wally, hi! No, not at all, I literally just got here.
runrightround: ...unless stated otherwise obviously. (Wallace Rudolph West?)

[personal profile] runrightround 2012-11-06 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
Cool.

[He takes a seat then! And his grin gets a little wider when he sees that she's got his drink all ready for him.]

My favorite, you know me so well.

[He'll just take a sip now, or start eating all whipped cream out of it with the straw first. Same difference.]
redhotmagma: (That's so funny! You're so funny!)

[Kelly laughs as she delicately returns the teaspoon to the saucer before taking the teacup into her hands.]

Oh, I have a really good memory for details. It comes with being a Coordinator!

[She rests with her elbows upon the tabletop, surveying Wally from over the rim of her cup and resisting temptation to smirk or raise an eyebrow at the childish display in front of her. Perhaps it's a little silly to consider it over something as small, but how open and honest Wally always seems, it's...strangely refreshing. And a bit endearing. She feels her chest tighten but from the outside she looks perfectly relaxed.]

Is the drink good?
runrightround: ...unless stated otherwise obviously. (I'm going to treat you like my homework.)

I AM SO LATE.

[personal profile] runrightround 2012-11-14 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
Right, totally.

[That thing that Wally is sure Kelly has explained to him before, um.]

Yeah, it's perfect. [He takes another quick drink before setting his cup down.] You know, I'm pretty sure I owe you, like, twenty drinks by now.

SHH ITS OKAY, LATE TAGS ARE GREAT it gives my slow ass a chance to catch up with everything else orz

[Perhaps she should just tell him already, she's getting a little anxious to. ...But no, she knows she needs to wait for the 'moment'. She sips carefully from her tea, the hot cup in her hands helping her feel more focused.]

Aw, don't worry about that! [She gives him a sweet smile.] It's more than worth it for your company.
runrightround: ...unless stated otherwise obviously. (Hnghhfrfhnnfhgfhg.)

Oh well okay then!!!!

[personal profile] runrightround 2012-11-20 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
In that case, I guess I can keep mooching off you.

[He's kidding. Mostly.

...Hm.]


We should totally do this more often, by the way.
