22. I want you, I need you....

Dramatic or cracky, there are options for everyone who has a sudden itching to play out some ships.

- Post your character below, listing their name and series in the subject.
- Others respond after going to and entering 1-16 for a scene, reply back and have some fun!
- Roll as many times as you like! Play out as many scenarios as you want! Just enjoy the fluffy or angsty goodness.

1. I HAVE A CONFESSION - There's someone you really like and it's finally time to tell them! It can be spur of the moment or elaborately planned out.
2.START OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL - You've just got together and everything is great! You can't stop thinking about each other or keep your hands off your significant other. You want to spend all the time you can together, doing whatever!
3.CAN'T GET IT UP - It happens to everyone, honest! For whatever reason, you just haven't been able to perform or maybe you're just not interested in sex. Is it because things are dull? Is it because you're not attracted to your partner? Or have you just been too busy or stressed out?
4.SAW YOU LAST NIGHT - You think you saw your partner in the arms of another - was it an honest mistake or is something honestly going on here?
5.FIRST TIME - It's the first kiss or the first time making love with your partner and you're so nervous and awkward, you're sure you'll mess it up! Maybe you do, but that's okay... they like you, right?
6.ANNIVERSARY - Two week, two month, two year, or whatever number you decide, that's how long you've been together with your partner and you want to do something special to celebrate it!
7.WANT YOU BACK - You broke up, but it was a mistake. You need to correct it ASAP... will your lover take you back though?
8.JUST MARRIED - Just married! Is it the wedding night? The honeymoon? You decide!
9.BAD ROMANCE - You're no good for each other and you know it! Unfortunately, your relationship is so sizzling, you can't break it off and you don't even want to.
10.FIGHT - You're both in one of those moods where you just want to sit around fighting over every little thing... bills or money, friends, your partner staying out too late, or whatever you can think of!
11.LET'S MAKE UP - Of course making up is the best part though! Whatever it was is totally forgotten now.
12.HONEY, I'M... - You've been feeling a little funny for a bit, so you take a pregnancy test and... oh no! Or is it 'oh great!'? Time to tell your partner either way...
13.ABOUT LAST NIGHT - Time to face that one night stand...
14.CHEATER - You're not being cheated on! You're the other person meddling with someone's lover! But for whatever reason, you just can't say no even if you know you should...
15.OBJECTIONS - You're facing a lot of objections to your relationship and it's starting to put a strain on it. Why don't you sit down and discuss it, see if you can work it out?
16.HAVE TO LET YOU GO - You have to break up with your partner... not because you want to! But because you need to protect them... can you do it successfully? Will they find out? You decide!



[It was nice being married. Shino had long suspected that marriage was a quiet thing, the sort of agreement that was made between amicable parties for a general convenience. But there was something so peaceful about being married to Tenten, so deeply comfortable and amazingly correct, that he couldn't help but... enjoy being married to her.

Everything was finally simple and quiet again between them. There was no running off to the other side of the world, no painful separation or closeness, no living with doors between them. They saw each other for dinner almost every night; they woke up beside one another almost every morning. Life could not possibly run any more smoothly.

For once, he decided quietly as he greeted his young wife with a light brush of lips against her forehead, everything was exactly right.

...sdlkfjsadfkljlsdfaljk - MY LITTLE LARVAE ;3;

[ There was a time, she knows and recalls, that Tenten would have never imagined she would be this blissful. That she would spend the rest of her life waking up in his arms. - The thought and image that Shino would willingly touch anyone in such an intimate way was something distant and rare in her mind. - And she loved every moment of it. Being married was as good as she had expected it to be. Being married to Shino was more than the young woman could ever dream. His was a sanctuary and a haven for the pressures of the world. And when her world was only as big as their bedroom, Tenten felt unstoppable.

With such particular thoughts waving and floating around in her head, Tenten knew she would need that comfort.

A small little grin pulled at her mouth at the faint brush of familiar lips. And though she was quite content to spending the Sunday morning lazing in bed, there was no helping the soft murmur that passed her lips.
] Morning husband...

/fusses over the bb!bugs forever

[His reply was less an actual word and more a low pleased hum. It was the most ancient form of Aburame communication, a quiet tonal system not unlike the hum of the hives the family so often found itself proximate to. For the moment, his hum was a soft low noise of absolute contentment.

There was probably reason to get up. There was breakfast to be made, papers to get to work on, phone calls and emails and all manners of distractions to deal with... but it all seemed very far away and unimportant.

What could possibly be more important than lying comfortably beside the most perfect woman in the world, an arm easily around her waist and his lips pressed gently to her temple while he hummed? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

/loves the bb!bugs forever! ♥

[ It was one of the few times he removed his eyewear, because, contrary to popular belief and Kiba's insistence Shino didn't wear them to bed or at least they would eventually end up on the nightstand when the sleeping part came. So she could feel the groove of his temple pressing against the curve of her head without any obstructions. Every shift wasn't stunted by the jarring of thin wire, or prescription glass. It was just him. It was just her.

Breathing in deeply and exhaling slowly, she reveled in that knowledge.

But always, always, her mind would return back to the news. The doctor's call last evening. Shino hadn't been home to see the shift in her face or the unsteady breath that she took after hearing the final verdict. And by the time she heard the jingle of his keys in the door, she had schooled her features just enough to fool even him. Hopefully. It wasn't exactly bad news, in her mind. But it would most certainly be life-changing. Tenten only hoped that he would be ready for it.

Finally finding some ounce of energy and effort, she peeked opened her eyes and turned her heat towards him with a soft and gentle smile.
] Are you happy? [ Because blurting it out would ruin the moment. And she was much better at easing someone into a hard situation. ]

so much~

[Also the shower. Bed and the shower were not places which necessitated glasses. Another lucky thing about not wearing glasses was how close it necessitated him staying to properly see her face. There was absolutely no one else in the world he ever allowed this close.

Her shifting meant he needed to shift himself, keeping close enough to keep her face in focus. That it necessitated keeping his forehead pressed lightly against hers was a very happy accident.

The question didn't so much catch him off guard by its content as by its asking. She must know by now, by the little smile he still couldn't suppress when he felt their rings touch as they held hands, the lingering as they parted ways, the very soft 'I love you's murmured back and forth.
] I happy? I have yet to appear otherwise since we were married.

So hard not to~

Well... there were those times the lab assistants disrupted your research on Omocerus bicornis, Macrodontia cervicornis, and Neochetina.

[ The quirk of her lips would tell him that she was only marginally teasing. There had been arguments and disagreement, of course. That was normal for any couple. As much as a unit they were, opinions were individualized. And Tenten, at least, tended to be very stubborn in hr beliefs. But that was hardly something that could force him or her to rethink the marriage, she knew. ]

:3 ♥

[He can't stop his nose from wrinkling. It's an actual expression--something he's picked up from some combination of Tenten's constant presence in his life and the overwhelming zeal of their other friends in beating emotions into him.]

...but not with you.

[They've had their differences. They've had their rocky moments. But here, now, they don't matter. Here, now, in their bed, in their embrace, their entire world can be condensed down to a moment of absolute happiness stretching infinitely in either direction.]


[ His comment earned him a slight shift in her expression. Although the smile remained, it was lesser and not quite as bright as it had been before, something Tenten knew Shino could read. But he needed to know - he needed to understand - that it did seem like a possibility to her. Especially when things hadn't exactly gone as they had initially planned.

They had talked of their future, of course, long before he had presented her with an all too simple and quaintly perfect ring. Before vows were even a concept, the two of them and spoken of dreams and possibilities for their lives together. But he was still well in the middle of his studies in Brazil. And she earned a modest pay from her teaching. They weren't prepared for this. As happy as she was to hear the doctor conform what she suspected, they weren't ready for this responsibility.
] No matter what?

[...something was wrong. It was difficult to see, curled up without his glasses like this, but he could practically feel the shift in her emotions in the air as the words left his mouth. The dampening left a rather sudden, very cold feeling in the pit of his stomach.

He hated moving away from her, but for half a second it was necessary to uncurl and roll backwards, reaching to pull his glasses from the bedside table. They were easily settled onto his face with one hand, and in an instant he was back, fingers brushing gently over her cheek as he truly, properly studied her expression.
] matter what, Tenten.

[ And just like every other dance they do together, this was no she shifted as well, twisting around to lay flat on her back. This way they would faced each other, and she would be able to gauge his reaction when she told him the news. And Tenten knew better than anyone that Shino would wish to read her in much the same fashion. They knew each other so well. But nothing would prepare them for something of this magnitude.

Quietly, she reached out her hand and did much the same, though Tenten found her fingers twisting a little lock of his hair as she looked up at him with all the love in her heart. Her tone, notably softer. Her smile, a few shades brighter, but still not at it's peak wattage.
] ...Good.

[His own lips pulled briefly into an echo of a smile. It was simply so... perfect. They moved like a unit, they were beginning to think like a unit, everything that had ever been thrown at them--even their separation and their disagreements and the little tussles that ended in bruised egos and apologetic kisses--they had managed to pull together as a unit. It was immensely comforting to feel, even while she seemed to be pulling herself distant, that they were still moving in sync.

After a moment, his hand on her cheek moved to catch her hand on his. It's comfortable to hold her hand between them, face open, waiting to understand what it could possibly be that had thrown her into her moment of dissonance.

[ Sometimes, that was all she needed. Most days, it was all she ever wanted, seeing a smile - even a ghost of a smile - appear on his face. the smooth and normally neutral line of his lips were fine with her. Her friendship with Neji had prepared her for such a constant state of being, and Tenten generally loved seeing what it would take to break such a natural state of neutrality. It was her little game, and like the patient person he was, Shino indulged her for it.

This wasn't a game though. And the young woman knew with the utmost certainty, that the thin line of calm would break soon enough. All that was left to do was to take that first step towards the inevitable. And with her hand in his - his hand in hers - there was no better way to start.

Bringing their joined hands to her lips, Tenten placed a light kiss on the base of his middle finger and held them both to the valley of her chest.

You remember how I hadn't been feeling well for a while? I thought it was something I got from one of my kids at the school. [ Here, she inhaled deeply and let out a slow breath. ] I went to the doctor to have it checked out, just in case, and he took some blood to run tests.

[ Beat. ] He called last night with the result.

[In an instant, everything drains away. His face doesn't fall. His lips simply part slightly.

Because of all the directions he imagined this conversation going, this one is the most terrifying.

She's been queasy, it's true. Mornings have been rough. The conclusion that she'd picked up a cold from one of her students was manageable, although its persistence made a trip to the hospital understandable. But having blood work done...

It was something bigger. It was something he couldn't have accounted for. It was probably something that was going to change the game forever between them.

And all he can do is lie there in silence, eyes all but begging for somehow happy news.

...mentally, she's hoping he won't freak/pass out .__.

[ And it's only natural for him to react in such a way. She was being encrypting and vague. Several conclusions could be drawn from the story she was telling. But an explanation was needed. Shino was a man of facts and logic. These were the facts she was presenting. And here would come the logic afterwards... as soon as she managed to muster enough courage to say the words.

Carefully and lovingly, her free hand reached up to brush over the lines of his mouth; to calm the concern before she, herself, leaned up to press her lips to his. He was safe, and she was here. He didn't need to concern himself with anything else, it said. And as a small and pathetically helpless smile pulled at her lips, Tenten gently angled his forehead to touch hers.

...He said I'm pregnant, Shino...

this is everyone's hope :| - abuses_ellipses, 2011-06-20 03:51 pm (UTC)(Expand)
