❧ Go from there!
01] baby
Suddenly, there's a new addition to your family! Are you expecting? Adopting? Struggling to find the perfect name for your child? Or maybe you're up at a ridiculous hour in the morning because they're crying like crazy.

02] just married
Congratulations! You and your loved (?) one are about to start a whole new life together! It's time for the honeymoon...

03] house hunting
Are you seeking out an apartment? A dream house? Or just any old place, as long as you're with your other? Make sure to weigh your options very carefully...

04] household chores
It's time to clean/cook/garden/take care of something! Do you work together, or does one of you hide until everything is done?

05] shopping
Whether it's for furniture, groceries, or something in between, shopping is something that everybody must do at some point in time! What varies is if they like it or not.

06] family vacation
... well, as long as the kids are happy, right...? You may not be happy (or maybe you are), but it's mainly about ~family bonding~.

07] romantic retreat
It's you and your loved one's anniversary, and you decide it's time to take some time off and take them somewhere nice, where you only have each other.

08] comfort
Is somebody sick in bed? Or perhaps they just had a bad day? Sometimes, a good breakfast in bed or a home-cooked meal can really lift the spirits! Or perhaps you want to try medicine, or laughter, or something else?

09] pet
Suddenly, you have another addition to the family! Is it a puppy? A kitty? A fierce dragon? Whatever it is, make sure to give it a name and to take good care of it!

10] holiday
Happy birthday/New Years/Christmas/Valentine's Day/whatever! It's a very special day that only comes once a year, so make it count!

11] argument
Oh, no, who left the stove on... Or maybe it's about why they were out late last night? Either way, there is a lot of tension today, and one of you may or may not be sleeping on the couch tonight.

12] making up
It's time to make amends for that fight/divorce/whatever you had before! After all, you love each other... right?

13] surprise, surprise
You are feeling rather loving tonight, so you want to remind the other person how much you cherish and appreciate them... if it's by something cute and adorable or hot and sexy is completely up to you.

14] proposal
SHUT UP THIS TOTALLY FITS You've been with your other for what feels like forever, and finally you want to tie the knot with them. Will you go down on one knee before them, or get a little creative?

15] other
I know I'm forgetting like a bajillion and one different things here, so this is the option for that!

5, shopping!

[You know Friday evening has arrived when you can open Kelly's kitchen cupboards and find little more than a crazy amount of boxed teas. True to the clock and her schedule, Kelly stands in hall slipping on her coat at the exact same time as always while double checking the list stuck to the pin board in the hallway.]

...bread, Miltank milk, herbs, Pokemon food...hmm. Do you think we're missing anything?

[ As per usual, near her resides one Shadow the Hedgehog, wrapped up in a comfortable blue scarf, laced with precious, twinkling stars. He is nestled jovially in the fabric, eyes shut and tail flicking to and fro at the sensation of the cotton warming him up. He isn't about to buckle in the middle of the store because of the weather if he goes without it, granted, but he prefers to have some semblance of enjoyment while doing groceries.

One eye slips open, peeking at her from his spot towards the end of the hallway, leaning casually against the wall.

For you, perhaps not. However, I will be buying myself some ice cream and caramel sauce this time around.

[ Ah, just the thought of that makes his mouth water a little. Yum. ]
redhotmagma: (...When you can't even dress yourself?)


[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-13 09:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Ice cream-! Yes, that sounds good!

[Kelly's attention remains fixed as she pulls out a pen from the little pot of odd items on the windowsill and dutifully adds Shadow's items to the list. She's sure she can trust him not to forget, especially when it's sweets of all things, but routines shouldn't be broken!]

Cake too, maybe? I think we can allow ourselves a little extra indulgence this week...something with icing and fruit would be adorable. Did you want anything else?
obfuskate: sᴏᴜʀᴄᴇ: ᴏғғɪᴄɪᴀʟ ᴀʀᴛ. (✘ delicious.)

[personal profile] obfuskate 2012-11-14 02:39 am (UTC)(link)

[ Shadow hums thoughtfully, his shoe idly tapping as his mind tries to craft the food in his head. A two-layer cake, perhaps a white chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, some icing, and strawberries...

He gives a positive little chortle. Oh, yes. That sounds delightful.

I have thought of the perfect kind. Yes, add that to the list.

The store also does have fresh banana pudding by the deli...

[ welp. It was due to happen. ]

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-14 05:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, that sounds wonderful—that's probably enough for this week-!

[Kelly's swift to cut Shadow off, just in case he decides on more sweet requests. Don't get in too over your head, Shadow, they do still need the rest of the shopping! Smiling wryly, she scribbles the final items to the list before plucking it down, folding it up neatly and slipping it into the pocket of her coat. Everything's ready, so they should leave now. Oh, but first...

She strolls over to Shadow and kneels down before him, busying herself with neatening his scarf for him, a mischievous but affectionate smile playing on her face.]

I like this scarf on you. It makes you even more cute.

[ oh.

Well, Shadow isn't about to retaliate against her fussing over his scarf, but her cooing over his 'cuteness' makes him visibly uneasy. He shuffles his feet, eyes averting her gaze purposefully to face something, anything that isn't that silly grin. ]

I cannot agree to the term 'cute'.

[ ... Is that making his cheeks rosy? Goodness, it is. Maybe he is a little flattered about it. Secretly. ]

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-14 07:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh Shadow, you're so easy to read that it's almost adorable. Kelly giggles, deliberately investing more time than necessary in fixing the scarf.]

I never said you had to.

[Which means she's going to stick by that "cute" comment whether Shadow likes it or not. She plants a light kiss on his forehead before standing up, smoothing her coat out before she cocks her head towards the door.]

Ready to go?

[ Shadow feels his ears swivel to the sides instinctively, the mild dampness of lips to his forehead making him react, however subtly. It isn't as though he opposes; rather, he just has to get used to it. He usually doesn't get affectionate with anyone, so having to go through something this different...

Well, needless to say, it isn't a change that can so easily happen for him overnight.

I've been ready. [ He softly tightens his scarf, just a little to ensure it will stay snug on there. ]
redhotmagma: (...When you can't even dress yourself?)

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-19 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
[Kelly takes careful note of Shadow's reaction, like she always does. She pays painstaking attention to the way he acts around her, carefully timing when she thinks it's right to take things another tiny step forward. She can tell that it's hard for him; she doesn't know why it is, but she does know that she doesn't want to risk scaring Shadow off.

She winds a scarf neatly around her own neck, quickly checks that her keys and money are in her purse, and picks up the floral canvas bag that had been sitting waiting on the floor; the evening air is cool as she opens the door and steps outside.]

Then let's get going!

Let's. [ Before this gets anymore awkward.

At least the weather is nice. It's a bit nippy, but nothing that he can't handle. It makes his fur bristle, tail twitching upward at the sensation of chilliness running up and down his spine. It is a little annoying, the way the cold can be bone-chilling, but he does enjoy the way it makes him feel, being able to walk around in the red leaves and, soon enough, the snow.

Besides, Shadow is dying to go on a walk. He hasn't been as active as usual today. Yes, because one day is enough to make him feel like he's atrophying, clearly.

Mm... [ He puffs a visible breath of air into his hands and rubs them both together to keep them warm. ] It does feel nice.
redhotmagma: (Keep smiling...just keep smiling Kelly)

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-21 12:26 am (UTC)(link)
[It is indeed chilly, and even if it's not the freezing depths of winter just yet, it's still far colder than Kelly is used to. She's so thin, temperature change really resonates with her. Once they've been walking for a while and she's warmed up the insides of her coat and scarf she'll be fine, but for now the cold is already making her legs feel a little stiff and she quivers slightly. An exceptionally large chill hits her, causing her to shudder visibly before wrapping her arms tight around herself.]

Brr, it's c-cold! Sinnoh feels completely different to Hoenn at this time of year...
obfuskate: sᴏᴜʀᴄᴇ: ᴏғғɪᴄɪᴀʟ ᴀʀᴛ. (✘ so tired of this bs.)

[personal profile] obfuskate 2012-11-21 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
[ Shadow reacts before he can even stop and think, a hand reaching up and bumping against her elbow, an assuring and soothing touch. It doesn't last for longer than a couple of seconds before his arms drops, eyes on her as he holds back walking. ]

Mm. How is Hoenn at this time? I... cannot imagine it being nearly this cold.

[ Considering the climate, it should be far warmer. Ah, well, there's no point in standing around, so he takes some steps forward and glances back, making sure she gets the message and follows along. ]
redhotmagma: (...When you can't even dress yourself?)

[personal profile] redhotmagma 2012-11-21 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
[The gesture is a little bit surprising, but certainly appreciated; Kelly smiles a warm, thankful smile at Shadow, before scurrying after him, quickly making up those few steps to walk by his side again.]

Oh, it's definitely not. I mean, the temperature drops, of course, but the weather's still really mild. I'd never seen snow before my first visit here! It was quite a novelty at first.

[personal profile] obfuskate 2012-11-21 01:38 am (UTC)(link)

[ Of course, to him, snow is more than a novelty. Snow is a part of nature, one of its prettiest parts, in fact. He always fantasized about running around in the snowfall with Maria at his side, and he would always make scenarios with her upon the ARK. No, they were more like plans for when she was cured, for when they could go down to that planet. Together.

Unfortunately, Maria never got to join him... but it doesn't lessen Shadow's appreciation.

When it snows, we should... go out -- [ A cough. ] -- to the park.

[ It would be quite nice. ]
