Now that I'm without your kisses, I'll be needing stitches

The Kissing Scars Meme
Despite the romanticism surrounding the emotion, it can be difficult to be loved completely — not just the beautiful parts of us, but also the sad parts, the injured parts, the hidden and less-than-pleasant parts. There are marks on us, both physical and mental, that we'd often rather forget. The mental ones can just be easier to hide. As for physical scars, they can be off of our minds some of the time, but that's exceedingly hard to do in more intimate, close moments.

Whether it's to your dismay or otherwise, your partner is not looking away and ignoring your scars. To the contrary, they're providing attention in a way most heavily associated with tenderness: kissing. It may be an accidental slip off target, or they may be trying to show you that what you've done and who you've been don't matter to them now.

Does the gesture touch you? Make the walls come up once again because of the memories that are dredged from somewhere you'd rather no go? A mixture of both?

The wound has long closed, yet the pains remains; these days, however, there's someone who may be willing to help you bear it.

  • Reply with the usual: canon, character, preferences, et al. You may also want to say if you're down for smut or not, since it's not a given.
  • Be sure to include what side you'd like your character to play. Mention if you can do both the kisser and the kissed.
  • Also, feel free to talk about your character's scars.

[Being in a relationship was nice. Having someone to lean on and help support you in a closer way then a friend would a feeling Jio couldn't quite describe. But it also came with something he had a hard time with. Touching. Being touched was no problem at all, but touching in turn was hard. He always only touched Aoba with the tips of his fingers and never with his left hand, almost like he was scared of hurting him. He also never had shown his palms to him.

And it was there the core of the problem laid. His left palm held the sign of a bad choice and his right the price he later on had to pay for said choice. The left palm had a mark in it that anyone would take for a poorly picked tattoo. Three sixes. It wasn't a tattoo. It was a mark given to him by Satan himself. The joy of having him living in your soul. In his right palm there was a jade burned into his hand. What had pulled him back after Satan nearly gained control over his body.

Jio had promised to clear everything out as to why he acted the way he did. That was not to say that he wasn't nervous as he sat on the edge of Aoba's bed, hands resting in his lap. If this was going to work between them he had to tell the truth, but he was afraid that he would be hated for what he hid, just as when he had been a child and got chased away from the town he had lived in. It was before he even knew of what lurked inside of him.]

Please don't freak out over this, okay.

[With a sigh, Jio flipped his hands over showing what he had hid all this time.]

Common sense says to avoid Anders after he's been taken to task for an escape attempt. The Templars are touchier, always ready to reassert authority by whatever means happen to seem fun to them. The authorities within the tower are likely to be more strict for the same reason, though one might be charitable and ascribe it to a desire to protect their students. Alim is never charitable, but he is normally good at hiding his biting resentment behind bland politeness. He's not sure if he miscalculated or if he just got on the wrong side of a templar looking for a target. Either way, he probably doesn't have to spend the night in the infirmary. It's not dangerous, just unpleasant. He was an alienage bastard before he was a mage. He knows the taste of pain.

But if he toughed it out and went to his own bed, he'd miss the chance to make a show of the little star pupil stumbling through the hallways with maximum dignity. He may not be the brave one, but he can get some use from his performances. And Anders won't have to spend the night alone. Whether he'll be welcome he has no idea; at the best of times he's not sure how his hero regards him. But he can be there. As casually as possible, of course.

"You're a better healer than most of the staff in here. What do you think the chances are my nose will wind up the shape it's supposed to be again?" He sits gingerly on he edge of his assigned cot.

Aw, I'm touched

At fifty two years old, Merlin hadn't thought that he would have the experience of exploring someone else's body for the first time ever again. He had slipped into something comfortable with Harry, a support system that satisfied both of their needs, whether they be emotional or physical, without the need to complicate anyone's lives more than they already were. You can get away with casual sex when you're twenty or thirty, but at forty and fifty every date became an interview for a commitment.

Commitment could and more often than not would become far too messy for any spy; They signed away their souls, their lives, their futures to their country, and that was just fine. They found a way to make due.

Until Harry Hart took a bullet to the face, not quite a perfectly aimed point-blank shot but a sloppy one. It was angled and could have missed if Valentine had been further away. It entered at the side of his head over his eyeball but it killed him none the less. (Who in their right mind would expect someone to survive that? He'd seen good men die quicker with the odds in their favor. Hopeful he could be, but he's near incapable of being willfully naive.) Merlin kept himself together, always responsibly detached, but there had always been Harry to lean on every other time. On that odd moment when it got too difficult there was Harry, and suddenly there wasn't.

So he leaned on Eggsy. He could see himself doing it like an out of body experience he couldn't quite stop, because he'd weighed the options in his head and leaning on someone who needed a leaning post as well seemed a better option than breaking down and being virtually useless when the entire world was most in need of one bloody person having their shit together. This was a mistake, this was irresponsible, but grief is selfish. Grief takes without thought too far ahead in the future, just to make the weight of it lessen.

How long has it been now since his fingers lingered over unfamiliar pecs? He remembers where every single one of Harry's scars, but the ones he sees scattered across Eggsy's body aren't the same. These are fresher simply by the age of the wearer--for fucks sake, Merlin, he's a fucking child. It's only a flicker of a thought that his reason dismissed entirely, now fully controlled by grief management. He sighs through his nose as he traces a particularly old one within reach from his arm's position around Eggsy's shoulder. Not from training, that was for sure, but sharp. He'd read Eggsy's file, he'd done a full background check while the young man was in training.

Harry had made a good choice; give someone who'd gone through hell a chance to make something better of himself.

He remains silent; some people like to keep their secrets, and it's not his place.
