Random CSS questions were, no joke, the best thing to wake up to (or come to the computer to a little while after waking up, at least). *hugs your face*
- “How would [character] respond if they got a love confession?”
Neil: If it was someone he knew, and he could tell they were being sincere (which would probably require saying it to his face) he’d be completely flustered in an ecstatic sort of way. I’m not even sure it would matter who it was, just the fact that someone actually loves him would completely rock his day. Same goes for a signed letter. If a letter were anonymous he’d probably be worried that it was a joke, but would be really hopeful that it wasn’t.
Veene: Face to face it depends on the person, and this has happened before, more than once, and I think he’s responded differently every time. Letters, as I’ve talked about, he doesn’t care much for but his response would still largely on who sent it. He doesn’t really get worked up or excited about these things, if anything it’s an opportunity to learn more about a person, which he likes. He’s very aware that he’s done more terrible things than you can shake a stick at and is fairly certain that nobody could actually love him if they actually knew him.
I have wondered, though, what would happen if someone (who Veene actually enjoys the company of, Neil doesn’t count) did manage to pry all of that out of Veene and still managed to like him (or, in this case, love him). I honestly have no idea how that would go, and I’ll probably be curious about it until the end of time.
Lye: Has pretty much no dealings in sexual or romantic relationships. She’s not ignorant of them or anything, she just doesn’t involve herself with others often and, when she does, it’s usually not for long and she doesn’t get close to others often. If she got a love confession she’d, first and foremost, be worried that she’s going to react in completely the wrong way. She wouldn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings if she wasn’t interested, but, at the moment, I can see her accepting that sort of confession because she’s CURIOUS about all this stuff.
Arro: Would shoot up the town. No, but he wouldn’t respond pleasantly. If it were a signed letter he wouldn’t be terribly impressed with the person’s inability to say it to his face (and would likely tell them that in an overly scathing and sarcastic manner the next time he saw them) if it were an anonymous letter he would disregard it entirely.
If it were too his face he’d still turn them down, and would probably be kind of annoyed by it, but he wouldn’t be as scathing because he’d have a little respect for them being able to speak to him directly. His response would still largely amount to a ‘Screw off’ though.
Torrin: HAHA. He likes close relationships, since he’s not with anyone he probably would only turn someone down if they seemed really meek/submissive. Otherwise it’d be staring and a “yes”.
Hafwen: She’d be mocking about a love letter or a face-to-face love confession but would probably entertain the notion far enough to publicly embarrass the confessor and possibly shove ice up his/her anus. Then she’d get rid of them.
Claire: Would, first off, view the feeling of ‘love’ as some sort of SIGN that she was meant to partner up with this person to do epic things, or that, in being closer to this person, epic things would happen. If she felt nothing for the person confessing she’d see it as her mind reminding her that she’s pretty freaking awesome and shouldn’t forget it. In the first case she’d accept the confession in hopes of ADVENTURE and in the second she’d probably just fail to respond and walk off grinning.
Leiko: Would respond differently depending on the person. Someone who can further whatever goals she has at the time she’ll accept, if she’s bored she might accept just to screw with them (or just plain screw them). Otherwise she doesn’t really care and wouldn’t pretend to.
- “If they wanted to confess their love to someone how would they do it?”
Neil: It would sort of depend on who he’s confessing to and how frustrating they’re being about it. He confessed to Veene multiple times because Veene kept shutting down on him, then he moved the confession up to forcing himself into Veene’s personal space and trying to push sex onto him. I don’t think he’d really get as pushy about it with other people, but he does take rejection pretty hard.
Veene: Wouldn’t. Maybe in the future that will change, but if he ever did find someone he liked that much he’d probably keep his distance unless they moved in closer to him.
Lye: Would probably be pretty straight up about it.
Arro: Would awkwardly hedge around the subject and then probably get irritated with himself and either drop it or just REALLY ANGRILY BURST OUT WITH IT.
Torrin: Well. He’s Torrin. He’ll ask you out and follow you around staring until you say yes.
Hafwen: Pretty much gets what she wants when she wants it, and that’s the kind of attitude she would carry into a love confession. “You’re mine now.”
Claire: AS MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY would do her best to hook up with someone if she felt something for them. If they turned her down she’d probably stalk them.
Leiko: Depends on the person. She’ll do WHAT IS NECESSARY.
