    But this isn't about


    alright. I won't push anymore


    I was actually thinking about cake here, not coffee.


    I don't imagine strawberry-vanilla-chocolate coffee is a thing, is it now? That sounds messy


    ...are you a mind-reader or something?


    Dark chocolate would be good. The darker the better.

    Thank you.

    Is strawberry-vanilla-chocolate coffee a thing now? Yes. Yes, it is. I'd thought you of all people would know that. ;D

    Cake's a bit closer, but also not quite.

    ....dark chocolate? For a pet?

    What kind of pet have you-

    .....Am I missing something here, John?

    ...I would kinda still prefer strawberry-vanilla-chocolate cake though. Leave the pumpkin spice to coffee.


    oohhh is it something sweet??


    Uh... kind of a long story


    I adopted a - friend's pet and it's like a weird thing


    It only eats chocolate


    preferably dark chocolate

    Sometimes I feel as if it's a damned shame I've never gotten to taste pumpkin spice latte. Am I missing out? Tell me.

    maybe c;

    ..'a- friend'? Is that the kind of friend you thought, Dorian and I were, or..?

    But sure, dark chocolate for the mysterious pet. No problem.

    Do you have any preference in colour for your food? Pasta, specifically?

    You are. Let me try to explain it to you....


    Imagine a hot mug of spiced tea in your hands and a fluffy blanket around your shoulders, you're sat at the fire inside and only a few candles are burning. Outside it's storming, rain is painting your windows and the winds are howling like ghosts risen from their graves. And you're sat there, with your spiced tea and caramel candy, just watching the flames dance and warm your feet.


    This is what pumpking spice latte tastes like


    Gods, no. No. Just a friend. But you know how I am with friends


    She was a friend though


    Colour? I mean.... isn't food mostly about taste?


    And doesn't pasta only have one colour?

    ...that's an imagery. Wow. Clearly, I am totally missing out.

    Speaking of warm blanket: I'll bring your cardigan with me in a bit. It stopped smelling like you, and you should fix that.

    Oh, okay, good. I was starting to wonder since when you adopt pets from your bedmates.

    ..wait. was? What happened?

    Of course it is. But pasta comes in a variety of colours nowadays. Black, red, green, multicoloured; I even found purple and blue ones. So. Question stands: Which one?

    Yuuup, you really are. Sorry, mate.


    How romantic. You should tell your boyfriend something like that, I am sure he'd approve


    Adopting anything at all from my bedmates (you're making it sound like I have a whole bunch of them) is never really the plan at all


    Pandora happened


    That sounds unhealthy. Food shouldn't be blue.... right?


    Get me the multi-colored one, then


    The more colorful the better

    .....right. As if a romantic sentiment is the reason for me wanting that cardigan to smell like you.

    But I'll have you know, I do indeed have stuff of Dorian's with me because it smells like him. And he knows.

    What do I know how many you have? More than two, I'm assuming.

    ..I'm sorry, John. I know how that feels like. It's not pretty.

    Blueberries are blue, for instance. I've been told, they're very healthy.

    Sure. Good. Then I'll be there in a few minutes.

    I didn't say it was. All I said was that those words your boyfriend would sure like to hear.


    Well look at you. A proud, lovestruck birdie. How cute.


    Oh wow. Do I strike you as such a whore?


    Besides, it isn't like I have steady bedmates


    ...not really, at least. I mean. what's a steady bedmate anyway, right?


    It's okay.


    And I actually meant cooked food


    Cooked food shouldn't be blue. But on the other hand, what do I know about food anyway

    I am not--

    I mean, I am proud. But I'm not a 'lovestruck birdie'. I'm not cute.

    ..you think two or three are many? I've dated two people at the same time before. It's not much.

    You still have Arcade though, right?

    Oh, then you haven't seen or eaten my blueberry sauce yet. You should. I've been told it's great.

    Sure thing. You keep telling yourself that.


    Well... dating is the one thing. Having two or three steady bedmates another.


    Well yes. I mean. We keep in contact, on occasion


    ....I think I have not been putting enough effort into my sex life lately. Thanks for pointing that out. I should change that.


    I'll never say no to people cooking for me

    Shush. I'm not cute.

    ..wait, really? I always thought steady, romantic relationships are harder to maintain than sexual relationships?

    Good. He seems like a good guy.

    Uh..you're welcome?

    Can't offer myself, sadly, but I'm sure you'll find more than one person to have fun with you. As long as it's not a Robert-person, I'm cool with whomever you come up with.

    Well, good, because that's what I'm intending to do, once I'm at yours.

    Yeah no I mean... I wouldn't know but that's not what I meant


    I meant having two or three romantic partners isn't much. But having two or three steady bedmates is much. Or at least it sure puts you in a bad light - or me, in that case.


    He is a good guy. A much too good guy.


    Robert wasn't half bad. It really wasn't worth all that drama, seriously. It was fine. Don't even know what your problem was with him.


    Also - hold up. Sadly?


    Wait wait. So. If you weren't a boring individual sex-wise, you'd consider sleeping with me? Is that what you're saying? Oh wow. I need to wrap my head around this.


    Won't complain. Though I'm not actually hungry..?

    John, I don't believe in slut shaming. It's awful, no matter what gender it's aimed at. As long as it's safe and consensual, you shouldn't be judged for having fun, right?

    ...what my problem was with him?! I can't believe you're even asking that question.

    But then again, I think I can see why you're asking, actually.

    Point is: He was awful and unhealthy for you.

    ..that is- that is not what I said. Nor did I wanna imply that--

    I- Look. Maybe. I can't possibly know, can I now?

    But- I'm not boring. I just have better things to do than trying out stuff I'm not even remotely interested in.

    Slut shaming? Is that what it's called? Sounds weird


    Oh come on, it were mere one night stands. Nothing about one night stands is ever unhealthy or healthy at all. It was fun. The sex was great. It wasn't like he owed me anything


    I'll take the maybe. Sounds good enough. You wouldn't regret it ;)


    Hey I was just joking, I know you're not boring


    Though I wonder, what do you do with all that extra time on your hands?

    He owed you a decent amount of respect, which he didn't deliver. And he did owe you that, because, if Dorian has told me anything about your night with him, it was that you took care of him in the morning. Which Robert clearly didn't know how to appreciate.

    ..well, then, I hope hypothetical-me would find himself pleased...

    Heh, allow me to ask you a counter-question: How 'boring' does your life have to be, that you can't imagine, what I'm doing with the time I have because I'm not indulging in sex? ;)

    This is ridiculous, he didn't do anything worthy of you or anybody hating him.


    Whatever.


    Well, to be fair, there's a lot of times I'd rather be sleeping around than doing what I'm doing. So I am kinda trying to think of something quite as good as sex here for you to indulge in and the options are fairly limited.

    I certainly beg to differ.

    But, I'm not gonna argue with you about that over text messages.

    God, where to start?
    Books, music, chess, visiting the cinemas or a museum, science, building a car or a ship, art, traveling to space, having night-long talks without any of you getting distracted, learning a new language, taking care of your pets, painting, writing poetry, learning how to make wine, or reading up on world history--
    Or, you know, leading a vampire clan and teaching teens how to defend themselves.

    There are tons of things I could be doing instead, John. Tons.

    Combine that with an eternity to live and actually do all those things, et voilà: You never get bored. Ever.

    At least I don't.

    a few moments of silence
    .....wait. Wait wait wait. Did you just say, you would have sex with me, if I asked? ..That's- something I have to get used to...

    How about we don't argue about this at all? Be it over text or not.


    I can indulge in most of these things without needing to give up the sex to have time for them. Soooo this doesn't quite count.


    That eternity to live you've got there though? I'd like myself a piece of that. A big piece. Give me eternity.


    ......


    It took you this long to realize? That's almost a bit said. I thought I was being obvious enough.


    Sure. I mean. You're handsome. Plus the whole vampire thing is kinda kinky (sorry not sorry). Plus I could say I've slept with a vampire.

    I mean. Fair.

    But if you ever find yourself face to face with a concubus, you are very- how do you say? fucked. Quite literally in that case.

    While'st I am very much immune to their advances. So. Check, mate.

    ......

    Thanks for making that weird.

    Besides. Not to crush your dreams or anything, but sleeping with a vampire is rather difficult, as far as I've heard.
