Can it look like a fathier?002. our characters nurse an injured magical creature to health together. they could have joint custody, so to speak, of their mystical friendo or they could become a reason for fairly regular visits from your character!
006. a magician (possibly a fraud) tells character a that the first words your soulmate says to them will appear on their skin. character b's first words appear on character a's skin. what do they do???
This could be a very laid back series of comm threads that I'm very much down for. ;;001. our characters find a pair of spiritual/magical journals which allow them to communicate with each other. when somebody writes in theirs, their penmanship appears on the connected journal's pages. magical pen pals, essentially. anonymous, free of judgment, the perfect confidant.
ohOHohOHoHoHHoho this could happen across the span of a few days or like one or two weeks until they figure out how to switch back! enough time to create (good, non-ugly) drama and chaos, especially once Vlad's wife is in Pandora as well!003. our characters simultaneously come across a magical artifact that puts them in each other's shoes. literally. the pair trades bodies - abilities, handicaps, quirks, and all.
Joke's on you. Vlad's already 500 years old. he knows that pain. he would very much like to help this poor mortal getting all those candles on there.004. our characters have a very old mutual friend with a birthday coming up. by very old, let's say ... 500. said mutual friend specifically requested their cake feature 500 candles and our characters must work together to fit 500 candles onto the cake. not one less.
