Carver + Jack
who cooks normally: Carver. Again, he spent most of his childhood with Leandra. Jack… Jack knows quick, easy meals. Like MREs and how to eat protein bars. But Carver prefers something home-cooked, not “here’s your dinner, assface” as Jack slides over a protein bar— so yeah, Carver usually does the cooking.
how often do they fight: All the time, actually. Usually over spilt milk. But it always ends in good make-up sex so neither one of them is complaining.
what do they do when they’re away from each other: Jack’s out having a good time. She might secretly miss him, but that’s not going to stop her. Carver is probably training or trying to make a name for himself.
nicknames for each other: Apparently Carver just doesn’t give nicknames. He calls her Jack. That’s it. Jack calls Carver babe and jerkoff and assface and any other insulting term she’s in the mood for that day.
who is more likely to pay for dinner: Garrett would say it’s Jack, but they usually spilt the bill.
who steals the covers at night: Carver. Jack’s got that biotic charge to keep her warm.
what would they get each other for gifts: Jack personally gives Carver a tattoo eventually. “You’ve done this before, right?” “Sure, all the time, now quit your bitchin’ and hold still.”
who remembers things: Jack. She remembers everything.
who cusses more: Jack, although Carver’s catching up.
what would they do if the other one was hurt: Both of them would go after whatever caused the other one pain. Jack’s not called a psychotic biotic for nothing and Carver’s got a temper on him.
who kissed who first: I can’t remember what happened in our RP, but I want to say Carver kissed Jack first. I don’t know, it just seems right.
who made the first move: Jack knew what Carver wanted and knew he was too shy to ask.
who started the relationship: It just sort of happened? They were having sex so often that they just sort of started attaching emotions to it.
Oh boy. Fenris + Isabela
who cooks normally: If by cooking you mean drinking, I think they both have it down.
how often do they fight: Verbal fights are too messy. And physical fighting just leaves the wrong kind of marks. I don’t think they really fight at all, but they do throw some petty jabs at each other from time to time.
what do they do when they’re away from each other: Drink. Isabela’s usually in a bar or at the docks. Fenris is a bit of wanderer, I think. He travels.
nicknames for each other: Fenris has no nickname for her, but I’m sure she has a few of her own for him. None of them have anything to do with the word “wolf” though.
who is more likely to pay for dinner: Isabela.
who steals the covers at night: They sleep without them, and instead keep each other warm.
what would they get each other for gifts: She gets him new underclothes so she can correctly guess what color they are. Fenris just plays into her games once in a while.
who remembers things: Both of them remember too many things they would rather not recall. When it comes to the little, everyday things: Fenris.
who cusses more: Isabela, of course, a dirty habit she picked up from spending all of her time with (drunken) pirates.
what would they do if the other one was hurt: I think they both can take care of themselves and I see them as two very independent people who sometimes see themselves in a relationship. That being said, if Fenris were to find out about someone hurting Isabela, he’d at least investigate. If it were serious, he might even get involved. Isabela takes care of business on the down low. She never lets him know how much she she actually cares.
who kissed who first: They kissed each other, after a long night of passionate sex.
who made the first move: Isabela.
who started the relationship: Like Carver and Jack, I think it just sort of happened. Neither one of them was looking for a long-term commitment… and maybe that’s not what their relationship is supposed to be. But when they are together, no one has to start anything.
Carver + Alistair (> > you know my weakness)
who cooks normally: Carver. Alistair can’t cook (he’s not even allowed in the kitchen), and Carver has spent enough time with Leandra (you know, when Malcolm was out teaching Garrett and Bethany how to control and hide their magic) to pick up a few tricks.
how often do they fight: More often then either one of them would like. Carver’s not good with words and Alistair can be a bit on the sensitive side.
what do they do when they’re away from each other: Carver trains. Alistair tries to cook or something. He just tries to keep himself busy, honestly.
nicknames for each other: None, actually.
who is more likely to pay for dinner: Carver. Not that Alistair hasn’t tried.
who steals the covers at night: Alistair hogs everything without realizing it. He hogs the covers, the pillows, even the bed.
what would they get each other for gifts: Alistair gets Carver new swords to play with and eventually a mabari. Carver isn’t really a gift-giver.
who remembers things: Carver (if has to remember the Chant as a templar, he’s got a decent memory), although he doesn’t use it much. Alistair is hopeless, or at least he pretends to be.
who cusses more: Carver, without a doubt.
what would they do if the other one was hurt: I think they end up hurting each other more than being hurt by others, so I am going to answer this question a little differently. When Carver messes up (and it’s usually Carver who messes up), he’s likely to sulk and eventually try to apologize, but it just comes out as a jumbled mess with an “I’m sorry” attached to the end. But, on the other hand, Alistair is usually defending Carver against Carver’s mean old big brother and his big fat shadow.
who kissed who first: Carver kissed Alistair first. It was one of this silly things you see in romcoms where Alistair was in the middle of a sentence and Carver kissed him to shut him up. Awkward on both ends, really.
who made the first move: Carver. I mean, sure, both of them engaged in some harmless flirting, but Carver was the bold one.
who started the relationship: It was a mutual thing.
Bethany + Sebastian
who cooks normally: He’s the prince of Starkhaven! He’s got cooks for that.
how often do they fight: Not often, I don’t think (unless it’s over Starkhaven’s consort or something). I think he’s too busy telling her how wonderful she is to examine all of her faults.
what do they do when they’re away from each other: Sebastian is usually doing his kingly duties, and Bethany lounges (and tries to sneak into the kitchen because SHE CAN MAKE HER OWN SANDWICHES, DAMMIT!). She doesn’t like living in Starkhaven.
nicknames for each other: Bethany calls Sebastian “Sebby” when she’s in a teasing mood, and Sebastian calls Bethany “love.”
who is more likely to pay for dinner: Sebastian, of course.
who steals the covers at night: Bethany. The bed’s too big. She’s usually searching for Sebastian, but settles on the covers instead.
what would they get each other for gifts: Sebastian spoils her, I think. Lots of Orleasian silk dresses (white, with gold trimming) and jewels and he throws parties for her hoping she’ll wander in— oh wait a minute. Bethany gets him new arrows and commissions him new armor when his old one starts to go.
who remembers things: Bethany. HE’S THE PRINCE OF STARKHAVEN. HE’S GOT PEOPLE FOR THAT.
who cusses more: Bethany, actually. Sebastian doesn’t find any pleasure in “foul language.” Bethany learned a few things from her father, but doesn’t usually use them.
what would they do if the other one was hurt: Sebastian would bring an army, depending on the severity of the situation. Bethany just tries to take care of him, both physically and emotionally.
who kissed who first: Probably Bethany. I think they were both going for it, but Bethany had to be the one to initiate the kiss.
who made the first move: Sebastian is a smooth talker.
who started the relationship: Sebastian.
My queue is empty. Be prepared to see me become a lurker for the next three weeks.
