Never to touch and never to keep

the non-sexual touch turned romantic or erotic meme

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words. A touch, one between people who have more than just something together whether they know it or not, can be worth a million. This meme is to celebrate those intimate touches...with a twist. Almost no touch here is sexual, at least overtly, yet with the right chemistry, things can heat up romantically or erotically. This might not even be caused by the sensation caused by the touch itself - or perhaps it is - but rather the sentiment behind the gesture.

Not a smut player? That's fine. There is a tuned-up emotional aspect to all this as well, as has been mentioned. Be sure to include that you'd prefer things to stay a little less steamy the more hands-on things become.

With all that said, let's put that thousand words to rest. Instead, reach out and touch someone.

  • Comment with your character and preferences. Remember to say if you don't want smut.
  • Reply to others.
  • Use RNG. Don't use RNG. It's you're choice.

Okay-- that's fine just, try not to loose consciousness. Stay with me, alright? [ Jason didn't think that was a good option, but if Zack wasn't feeling well enough to move there was nothing that he could do for now. And now Zack was using him for leverage, tapping his fingers on Jason's ribs and by now he's sure his face was completely red.

What was he supposed to say, really? He wouldn't mock Zack for needing his help, he was the one who almost broke his face to begin with.

Jason had to back a few steps though, holding Zack's entire weight in his state was not a good idea. He found a flat surface to lean against so he moved toward it he tried not to move Zack too much in case he was feeling lightheaded.. ]

I ain't goin anywhere. [If he was gonna pass the fuck out it'd have happened by now. But the whole clingy thing was probably pretty disconcerting. Right. Man up, Taylor.

Except Jason was moving him back towards one of the rocks they usually perched on between rounds and Zack couldn't bring himself to care, feeling the tension work through Jason's shoulder, his side, muscles shifting as he steadied Zack and moved them both at the same time. It was a little distracting and whether that was because of his personality or the head injury was up for debate.

Jason could be really fucking distracting sometimes. It was a problem.

Once they were leaning against solid stone and no longer wobbling in the middle of their makeshift arena Zack shifted his weight so he as standing beside Jason, not practically on top of him. He stayed close enough that they were still touching, though. Milking it? Yeah, probably.]

I'm not gonna pass out, dude. Promise. Ain't that bad just need a minute or three. If nothing else the whole super healing shit will fix it pretty quick.
