The Dating Meme

Dating is, when you think about, really weird. It's a totally different thing for different people. Some are friends for years before they date; others start dating on the same day they met. Sometimes, there's a lot mushy stuff involved; other times, the couple acts just like friends. None of this is necessarily right or wrong.

Whatever it is, your character and the character you reply to are now dating. How? That's up to you. Whether it be awkward or not, the relationship will be uniquely theirs.

How to Play
-Comment with your character and preferences.
-Reply to others.
-Have fun.

1. Best Friends to More: Oh, wow, you've been this person's friend forever! But then you realize you have feelings for them, and they for you. Will things change when you change your status?
2. The Sudden Decision: Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here I am, date me maybe?
3. Confession: You've had feelings for this person for, like, ages, and you want to ask them to date you. Or maybe the confession just slips out...
4. Hate Date: You really don't like this person; actually, you hate them. But you don't want them to be with anyone else!
5. I Guess We're Dating: Huh. We are dating, aren't we? Everyone else knew before us...
6. Slow Decision: For the more mature and seasoned, they might fall into something sweet without needing to rush.
7. Been Burned Before: One of you has had a bad relationship, and now both of you have to bear that brunt if you want to date now.
8. Innocence: This is your first real relationship, so you have to figure it out together. That's harder than it looks.
9. Courting: You're from an old-fashioned world or are old-fashioned yourself, so it's courting, not dating. Still, maybe you can sneak away from the chaperon.
10. First Date: Your first true date. What's it like? What would happen if...I don't know...it went bad?
11. First Kiss: Of course.
12. First Time: Together or in general.
13. The Perfect Couple: The couple that never argues and is more like best friends than a couple.
14. The Not-So-Perfect Couple: Ugh, these guys always argue and seem to despise each other. Why are they even together?
15. Comfortable: You can do anything around or in front of your honey.
16. Not Cut Out for Dating: One of you is anti-social, a jerk, a stoic badass, whatever. You're not dating material...yet here you are.
17. Getting on Each Others' Nerves: Spending too much time together can get even the most patient people annoyed with the person they're dating.
18. Know What You Like: It's almost like they can read your mind, whether it be in the kitchen, at the store, or in the bedroom.
19. Trouble in Paradise: Maybe it's external factors, or perhaps internal, but whatever the case may be, things aren't looking so sunny.
20. Test the Strength: Someone else has an obvious crush on the person you're dating. What do you do?
21. Pregnancy Scare: Hey, it happens. So, how do you feel when the period turns up missing?
22. Getting Serious: Things are getting way deep with this person. They may be the one...or maybe they think they are, while you're not too sure.
23. Old Hat: This relationship is dull. Can you get back the spark?
24. End It: You don't want to date them anymore. You want to see other people.
25. Taking It to the Next Level: You don't want to date them anymore. You want to marry them.

[ For a few glorious ... hopefully months, Newt was actually going to have an assistant! Someone who wouldn't be a sophomore undergrad and he didn't have to coach every step of the way! Look, he liked giving kids experience and opportunities. Best way to learn was from someone else who knew the ropes, right? Yeah, but, now he's busy. Very busy. He's got a lot of projects coming up and stuff.

And his intern is cute.

Really cute.

That helps.

A lot.

Peter Parker is that kind of dorky cute you hear about and don't think is real because of course it's not. Except there he is. Literally, he's in the lab right now.

Pete, can you pass me that, please?

[ Play it cool, then drop the hint for a date. Drop the question if the hint isn't obvious enough. It's the best plan a man can get. ]

[This opportunity abroad was kind of incredible. May had been so excited for him and, honestly, Peter had been pretty psyched about it too. Surprising though it may be (or, maybe not), he'd never actually left the city. The Parkers weren't exactly well-off enough to go on vacations, even when his uncle was around, and afterwards there had just...never been enough time in the day.

Beyond that, work for biochemists outside of Oscorp was slim. Peter hardly wanted to go back there - for obvious reasons - and he wanted to work for Stark Industries' biochemical warfare department even less. But this! Studying Kaiju - Peter doesn't think he could have dreamed a cooler job.

Newt is a lot, at first glance. Peter likes to think he keeps up pretty well, but the guy is all over the place. In a good way...most of the time. Hermann is equally as nuts, though maybe not in the most conventional sense. Hermann mostly ignores Peter, though, which is fine, considering having Newt's attention is more than enough to keep Peter occupied. One thing Peter is sure of is that he's learning loads from his time here, and the more time he spends around Newt the more endearing he (sometimes begrudgingly, on Peter's part) becomes.

Peter hands over the forceps without looking, focused on the titration he's doing. It's the only tool on the table that could be of use to Newt, though.]
Watch for the acid sac, please. [Peter remembers the last time Newt popped it. Not a fun time.]
