Activity #2 - Veronica & Aethelwulf

Mon Dec 03, 2018 4:54 pm

1. Who wants kids and how many?
A: "I don't know. I'd like to have at least one kid."
V: "I...have actually never thought of this before. One? Maybe two?"

2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
A: "I do, of course."
V: rolling eyes "I'll give that one to him. He looks great when he dresses up."
A: "Aw, I think that's the first compliment you've ever given me."

3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
A: "Dogs, hands down. Love them. Hate cats."
V: "I don't think I'm particular about either. I like them both. I have a dog and a cat."

4. Who is the worst cook?
A: "Out of the two of us, I'm definitely the better cook."
V: "Are you saying you don't like my cooking?"
A: "Not at all, I just think I cook better."
V: "I disagree, I cook better."

5. Who made the first move?
A: "I did. She didn't make it easy at all though."
V: "He did. (describe first move maybe?)"

6. Who is the worst liar?
A: "Vera is pretty adept at calling me out on my lies. Usually about things that are bothering me."
V: "Probably Aethel. I can tell when he's trying to lie the few times he does."

7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
A: "I think I did."
V: "Yeah, you did."
A: "You were silent for a long time. And avoidant."
V: "I had to process. It was unexpected."

8. Who hogs the blanket?
A: "We share the blanket pretty well, actually. She has a habit of cuddling up to me while sleeping. Otherwise, she'd definitely hog the blankets. She gets cold easily."
V: "I'll take all the extra heat I can get."

9. Who kills the spiders?
A: "We both do. Veronica doesn't scream and freak out over tiny spiders."
V: "There are worse things in the world other than a spider. If they're tiny, I take them outside if I can."

10. Who is the responsible one?
A: "Veronica. I think she'd kill me if I even playfully said I was the responsible one."
V: "He's gotten into a lot of trouble before."
A: "She keeps me in line."

11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
A: "I do. Though, I think we're both jealous people."
V: "He's the worst of the two of us. I'm at least subtle about it."

12. Who can wrap presents well?
A: "I can. Vera doesn't do homely things very well, to be honest."
V: "That's why you're like Reynard's wife."
A: "Jealous?" winks in Reynard's direction

13. Who is the most romantic?
V: "Aethel. He does a lot more than I do. I try though?"
A: "Vera is...not a very romantic person, but that's okay."

14. Who is more competitive?
A: "Vera."
V: "Aethel."
A: "...Fine, we're both equally competitive."

15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
A: "Vera gets pretty embarrassed if I'm overly affectionate with her in public. It's cute. She blushes and then gets angry about it."
V: "I don't think anything embarrasses him."

Character Interview #1

Tue Dec 04, 2018 5:11 pm

Image
Image

1. What are some unconscious quirks your character performs? Is there a reason?
"I twirl my hair around my finger apparently when I get nervous. Which never actually happens on a job, but apparently when I'm with everyone I consider myself very close with. Which is why they pointed it out to me."

2. How long can they go without showering before feeling gross?
"Let's see...how long was the longest stakeout I had to be on. Five days? Yeah five days."

3. Do they leave their clothes on a floor or chair? Or neither?
"You know there is this thing called a clothes hamper. That's were you put dirty ones. Clean ones are in the closet like normal people. I mean okay my clothes might end up on the floor or chair if I'm....busy."

4. Do they sleep with the bedroom door open or closed?
"Cracked open."

5. What animal would they be?
"Tiger."

6. If they could only eat one thing for an entire month, what would it be?
"If I said pizza, would I have to be specific in the type of pizza I could eat? Cause if I don't, then pizza because you can have endless choices. Never said I needed to be specific."

7. Would your character want to know the exact time and date of their death?
"Probably not."

8. Would your character want to know how they die?
"I'm good not knowing."

9. What is your character's favorite mythological creature?
"Sphinx."

10. What is their favorite song?
"Love Myself by Hailee Steinfield."

11. Does your character procrastinate or stay on top of things?
"I'm pretty much on top of things. I don't let it all pile up.

12. What does your character indulge themselves on?
"Chocolate. Binge watching tv shows. Actually being able to sleep in one day."

13. How do they react when they're injured?
"Depends on the injury I suppose. I'm pretty laid back unless my life is in danger, then I would probably be a little more worried."

14. How does your character celebrate their birthday?
"Xavier normally throws a party at his house for everyone. But with Rena now there, it will probably take place somewhere else. But he always makes sure to do something. So I spend it with family."

15. What was their first kiss like?
"So my first kiss was technically with Matt. Which I mean isn't surprising because he is bi and we were just having a good night. It had never really gone further than that, but it was a good one I thought. I've never really had a nice like gentle and sweet first kiss."

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
1. Who wants kids and how many?
out of the pair kaede is definitely the one who wants children; given his lack of a proper role model as a child penemuel doesn't trust his ability to look after anything more strenuous than a goldfish, and as for how many children kaede wants the number ranges anywhere from one and upwards
2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
nem isn't one for wearing anything formal so the odds of getting him anywhere near a tux would be next to zero, kaede also wouldn't wear formal clothing without a decent situation or enough persuasion, so we'll probably never know either way
3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
both are definitely dog people
4. Who is the worst cook?
nem, he literally can't cook to save his life
5. Who made the first move?
nem's the equivalent of a brick when it comes to romantic signals, it wasn't until his elder brother nudged him that he actually started noticing the little signals from kaede. in short they're both awkward and both made moves without really knowing where to take things
6. Who is the worst liar?
probably kaede. nem's quite lazy in the sense that he doesn't really care enough to lie but has the ability to lie when he wants to, but kaede's hyperactive nature means he can't keep secrets for long




















Image
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
they're both so awkward that they're each waiting for the other to say it first
8. Who hogs the blanket?
nem would kick anyone out of bed if it meant keeping the blanket to himself
9. Who kills the spiders?
nem, he doesn't want kaede burning the house down
10. Who is the responsible one?
neither one is particularly responsible; kaede's hyperactive nature can lead to reckless decisions, so if there had to be a choice then probably nem
11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
secretly kaede, nem's pretty confident in relationships
12. Who can wrap presents well?
kaede, nem just shoves gifts in bags and throws them at people
13. Who is the most romantic?
neither, they're both awkward fucks when it comes to anything remotely romantic
14. Who is more competitive?
nem doesn't really care enough about anything to truly be competitive, it'd take a lot of spurring and even then it'd likely be halfhearted, so probably kaede
15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
neither, they both give 0 fucks

Y'all should have known my trashy ass was gonna do this.
Gamora x Peter, based off this roleplay.
    • 1. Who wants kids and how many?
      "Not like it's possible, but if it were, one would probably be more than enough."
      "Like ten dozen."
      2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
      "I've yet to see Peter in a suit, but I bet he'd look handomse."
      "Gamora, hands down. Hottest and most beautiful woman in Galaxy."
      3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
      Gamora would definitely be a cat person; quiet, reserved, but totally down for cuddles and love, on her own accord of course.
      Peter is basically a big golden retriever, so he'd be a dog person.
      4. Who is the worst cook?
      "Peter doesn't even know what that word means."
      "Hey! I can make some pretty great Terran food, just you wait. One day I'll show you."
      5. Who made the first move?
      "Peter literally the day after we met."
      "Psh, can you blame me?"
      6. Who is the worst liar?
      "Me. But I can always tell when Peter is lying, even when others can't."
      "Agreed, you can catch me in a lie the moment I say it."
      "That's because I know you far too well."
      7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
      "Technically I did."
      "But by default. I definitely loved her first."
      Gamora raises a brow, "Yes, we've already discussed that you tried to make a move the day after we met. I'm sure its easy to put the rest together."
      "What can I say? I've always been crazy about you."
      8. Who hogs the blanket?
      "Neither of us."
      Peter blinks, then smirks, amused by her lack of knowledge about this situation. "I'm cold almost every night, blanket hog."
      9. Who kills the spiders?
      Hands down, would be Gamora. Though Peter would pretend to be a brave man about it, but in the end, Gamora would be the one to get rid of it. She wouldn't kill it though, she'd just release it.
      10. Who is the responsible one?
      Gamora glances over to Peter, giving him a look and not giving her answer.
      "What? Why are you looking at me like that? I'm totally responsible."
      11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
      "That would probably be me."
      "It's hot."
      12. Who can wrap presents well?
      "It's not really something I'm accustomed to, but I can manage it well enough."
      "If it covers the present enough to hide it, its a job well done."
      13. Who is the most romantic?
      "Peter."
      "I have no shame and won't deny it. I love you, you deserve all the romantic things that make you roll your eyes and your cheeks blush."
      Gamora's cheeks flush a darker color, rolling her eyes at him with a shake of her head.
      "Just like that. So adorable."
      14. Who is more competitive?
      Gamora ponders this thought for a moment, Peter interrupting with his own decided answer.
      "We don't really compete against each other much."
      "But if we did, I would win."
      15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
      "Depends on the situation."
      Peter snorts. "Did I not just make her blush like a second ago?"

╭⋟────────────────────────╮

✦✧Gale 'Grey' x Rowan✦✧

╰────────────────────────⋞╯
            • 1. Who wants kids and how many?
              "That's the last thing I want right now, or really ever."
              "I've never really thought about kids.."
              2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
              "I'd be down for her in a gown. Something that makes those eyes of her's pop. She can outshine me any day. Even in one of my shirts. Just the shirt."
              "I've never seen Gale in a tux before. I beg him to try one on when I drag him out shopping with me but he refuses. I know he'd looks fine as hell with his hair slicked back. One day, I'll get his ass in one."
              3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
              "I don't like either. Dogs are stupid and cats are fucking evil."
              "I love dogs to death."
              4. Who is the worst cook?
              "That's a joke. I don't cook."
              "He is. I'm not really talented either but I don't burn grilled cheeses."
              5. Who made the first move?
              "I did."
              "He did."
              6. Who is the worst liar?
              "Rowan doesn't lie to me. I mean, even if she did. I'd believe her."
              "He is a terrible liar."
              7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
              "She did. Through a text message. I read it after getting off work late. I remember starring at the text in my car for the longest time before driving home to reply."
              "I sent it to him one late night when I'd been waiting for him to get off work. I didn't know what to think when he didn't respond until he got him. He gave me his answer."
              8. Who hogs the blanket?
              "She'll rip the covers off my ass and let me freeze."
              "He's the blanket hog. If I don't fight for them I don't get anything."
              9. Who kills the spiders?
              "I do. Those little bastards scare the shit out of her. I think it's funny."
              "Him. Fuck those damn things."
              10. Who is the responsible one?
              "I pull my weight."
              "I am, I have to be for his sake."
              11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
              "She says I'm over protective. Some dick head checks her out. Yeah, I have a problem with it."
              "He's terrible about guys in public."
              12. Who can wrap presents well?
              "I don't care. Probably her."
              "Me, all me."
              13. Who is the most romantic?
              "I'm not romantic. I'm working on it though."
              "Gale didn't have a romantic bone in his body until recently. I love every little surprise."
              14. Who is more competitive?
              "She says I turn into a dick when we go jogging. And a show off."
              "He's definitely more competitive than me. I'm glad he is. It's something I can use to keep him active."
              15. Who gets embarrassed easily?
              "She's easy to embarrass. Hell, I fart in the store and blame it on her."
              "He's an asshole to me when the moment is right."

1. Who wants kids and how many?
“I'm not sure honestly. I think both of us want to adopt kids some day, but that day is not here yet. We are still in our honeymoon phase, not to mention that a lot is going on right now in our lives.”
2. Who looks the best in a tux/gown?
“Jason does. But he looks better with that tux on the floor.”
3. Who is the dog person and who is the cat person?
“I don't really have a preference. I think Jase prefers dogs even if he is liked by Xavier's cats as well.”
4. Who is the worst cook?
“I think I might be... Like Matt, cooking isn't really in my genes. I do make great sandwiches, though.”
5. Who made the first move?
“Jason did. He just swept me off my feet during a basketball game. That dork.”
6. Who is the worst liar?
“Oof, that is a hard one. I mean, I dislike lying but I was able to keep up my secret for almost five years. So that makes me the better liar out of us two? Or Jason the worst, as you may say it. But I dislike lying and I try to avoid it.”
7. Who would (or said) "I love you" first?
“Jason did when he admitted his feelings for me. And I said it back a few seconds later.”
8. Who hogs the blanket?
“Jason hogs the blanket at times so I have to crawl closer for cuddles. He's such a cutie.”
9. Who kills the spiders?
“I do kill the spiders at times. Jason does it too. Or we just leave them chilling because they sparsely bother us.”
10. Who is the responsible one?
“Both of us are responsible. Jason is a bodyguard and I am tech support... No, I won't fix your computer.... Okay, yes, maybe I might.”
11. Who gets jealous the easiest?
“We are a rational couple. We don't really posess jealousy.”
12. Who can wrap presents well?
“Jason can. I always let the store wrap my presents. Or Matt's boyfriend if he is around because he does that really, really well.”
13. Who is the most romantic?
“Jasey. Definitely. He plans all of these anniversaries and dates and while I do so at times as well, some things I am not allowed to touch because he will arrange it. It's really sweet.”
