growstrangelydim: that's cute (So you thought I'd give a fuck)

new site; new name; rusty; still surly

We're doing this again? Really? Didn't you learn anything last time?

Yeah. I know she's here. That's pretty much the only reason I'm not going to kick up as much a fuss as usual.

The new name's nice, if not ridiculous as fuck. Quoting a hymn, really? You should've stuck with your idea of cute and witty.

It wasn't either, by the way.
flipkicking: (I've got a fever of a hundred and five)

[Cutting back on the whining because of her? You're too sweet, babe, really.]

And here I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever have someone to talk philosophy with again.

[No blonde jokes, now.]
flipkicking: (You forced me to become strong;)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
I hear the whole college business can be pretty overrated -- and I think philosophy as a potential career choice of mine is shot, anyway.

[Oh, I'm sure he missed that tell-tale eyebrow-arch of hers -- here, have it again, for old times' sake.

But it's with a smirk, at least.]


Is that a rusty attempt at a compliment, Mr. Constantine?
flipkicking: (One sec -- saferoom time.)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
[are you serious do you know how hard it would be to take classes and fight B.O.W.s

if he mans up and actually admits that out loud, she'll be sure to have them make up for the lost time pretty quickly. Or maybe not so quickly.

...Yeah, okay, that smirk gets some of that razor-edge quality to it.]
Yes, it was. But hopefully it's not that much of a turn-off.

flipkicking: (My eyes are up here. Thanks.)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
[that is a lie all she has to do is mention tampons or female biology and he'll run the other way

Well

Teasing aside, she wasn't necessarily looking for a compliment -- but hey, that one works. So luckily for him, that razor quality softens again as she glances aside, humming thoughtfully.]


You're not getting soft on me now, are you?
flipkicking: (My heart is beating but I'm barely alive)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Don't worry she prefers when you're not acting like an awkward teenager. ...Anymore than usual, anyway.

...

you really wanna play that game, son]


You sure your memory's okay after all this time away? Because I don't remember ever having to ask for anything.
flipkicking: (Potentially patronizing?)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:45 am (UTC)(link)
[I thought we covered kinks a long time ago]

I could always step up the pace, if you want. Who knows, maybe one day you can tag along when another zombie dinosaur outbreak hits.

[yeah no, iconfais should say she's totally joking. No qualms with being the fighter between the two of them, nope. and no, she has not stopped blaming you for the velociraptor attack.]
flipkicking: (Moving on.)

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
You did a good job looking after the cat, at least. Should I grateful you didn't eat him instead?

[she would have killed you :|]
flipkicking: (I prayed for sunrise)

lol he pushed the seekrit sympathy button apparently

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
[...Wow -- she's the one joking and he's the one being sensitive decent ... thoughtful?

Way to catch her off guard. And it probably shows in the brief pause and blink on her part.

And then it's gonna get the warmest smile out of her so far.]


Well... in case I didn't say it then, thanks. It meant a lot to me. [And more or less made up for the fact that the zombie dinosaurs were all your fault.

And... yeah, okay, that's also gonna get her to touch his arm gently. Miss that, too?]


Watch what you say -- I might get sappy on you here in a minute.
flipkicking: (Ever the professional.)

because the subject line is more accessible to my lazy self than bringing up the AIM window?

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, she'll watch. And turn just slightly at the last second so that her cheek brushes the heel of his hand.

But she respects the no-PDA-thing -- so that little bit is all she takes. After so long, it's plenty.]


I'll... give you a free pass on that one. Just this once. [She wrinkles her nose slightly in mock-consideration.] Just because I'm feeling sappy, of course.
flipkicking: (The end of a nightmare.)

I love when you make excuses for my bad habits

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
[fate's so funny sometimes, innit

See, why can't you say things like that out loud once in a while?]


Better than blonde, I hope. [But it's a harmlessly sly look she throws up at him this time. No red font warning signs, don't worry.]
flipkicking: (Give me a minute; still rebooting.)

CLEARLY

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
[she can hope?

Jill snorts softly as she releases his arm, the reaction part dismissive, part vaguely annoyed.]


Just technicality, really. At both of the places I've ended up, I came from a point where it's blonde; the boss behind the keyboard finds it simpler to keep it one color all around. Simpler that way, I guess.

[She considers a moment.] That's been... a few weeks now. Before then I was just in metaphorical limbo, so it didn't matter as much.
flipkicking: (...I'm not even sure wtf to say.)

you know we do better than a bad romance

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 04:57 am (UTC)(link)
[That fond smirk is back in record time as her hands move to settle on her hips.]

At one, I was dropped off by a dragon and had to get directions from a group of Moogles -- they look like flying stuffed animals, if you haven't seen them. At the other, I had half of my soul ripped out and turned into an animal, who I now can't get too far away from without dying. But I can still go home at the latter place, at least. [All of this is said very matter-of-factly, btw. No real opinion on either being shown.]

But since you asked, no, I haven't had a reason to try and take charge of anything. [Yet.]
flipkicking: (BRB Master of Unlocking at work.)

gdi she said not to tempt her

[personal profile] flipkicking 2012-08-27 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
[you continue to impress her with your random knowledge, John] Good guess. It's based on the books, from what I understand. Loosely.

[There's only the slightest of slight pauses before she answers.] ...Meerkat.

And before you start, someone already made a Lion King joke.

fair enough
