“It’s this tropical fruit-flavoured ice cream they sell in various places in Israel,” Des was telling Dawn. “You can find it practically everywhere. As to the Librarian, well, he’s obsessed with a riddle of sorts. He also never ever ever eats ice cream.”

  • Suddenly, there was a sound!Scapegrace, Wed Jul 29 19:31
    A sound known across the multiverse. The sound of summer. The sound you spent all those long, sunny days waiting, begging to hear. This sound. The ice cream van powered onto the sand as if the driver ... more
    • Two people approached the van. — Desdendelle, Fri Jul 31 14:06
      • "Oh, that stuff?"DawnFire, Fri Jul 31 14:09
        Dawn grimaced. "If it's what I'm thinking of, I...don't have a high opinion of it. But that's me. And what do you mean, he never eats ice cream? Really, never? No wonder he's so grouchy."
        • “Well…” Des said.Desdendelle, Fri Jul 31 14:19
          “I’ve never seen him eat any and he didn’t raid the fridge, either. But nevermind that, there is ice-cream to be had! Though, like everything, there’s a queue. Why does it have to involve queues.” He ... more
          • Dawn shrugged, blushing.DawnFire, Fri Jul 31 14:24
            "Queues it is," she said. "At least this one's short, huh? Oh, there should be a queue for badfics," she added, tangling and untangling their fingers as she spoke. "Not one where the badfics queue up ... more
            • Des snorted.Desdendelle, Fri Jul 31 14:27
              “While it might be fun, most badfic won’t be fixed, then.” Des smiled and ruffled Dawn’s hair with his free hand. “It would be awesome, no doubt, but we won’t be doing our jobs.”
              • "Nonono," Dawn said.DawnFire, Sun Aug 2 10:05
                She caught the hand that had ruffled her hair, and leaned in for a quick kiss before she continued talking. "That's not what I meant. It's that there would be so many of us that we'd outnumber the... more
                • [Back in the queue!]Desdendelle, Tue Aug 4 13:21
                  “Sou ka.” Des rubbed his chin with his free hand. “I hate dressing up. It’s, by rule, uncomfortable. ‘sides, I look silly in formal dress. I much prefer my coat.”
                  • Dawn grinned, and patted his shoulder.DawnFire, Tue Aug 4 13:23
                    "It's a nice coat. But you always look nice."
                    • Des smiled, a bit embarrassed.Desdendelle, Tue Aug 4 13:26
                      “You too. You look wonderful. You make my heart race every time I see you.” He covered his mouth with a hand, then giggled. “Look at me, spewing clichés like a broken hose.”
                      • Dawn grinned at him.DawnFire, Wed Aug 5 16:36
                        "Want me to spout a couple, even things out?" she asked. "I'm sure I could think of some. You make me think in cliches sometimes."
                        • “Oh yes.”Desdendelle, Wed Aug 5 16:38
                          Des chuckled. “By all means. My ego needs to get bigger. Wait, was that sarcastic or not? No? Yes? Ahh Shakhar help I confuse myself. Help help I’m being repressed.” He waved his free hand around.
                          • ...putting her arms around his neck. "Well, then. You make my heart skip a beat. I could get lost in your eyes--frequently do. In a room full of people, I only see you." She began grinning... more
                            • For a moment, Des kept a straight face.Desdendelle, Wed Aug 5 17:16
                              Then he burst out laughing. He laughed and laughed and laughed until his sides hurt and tears were streaming from his eyes. “Oh, Shakhar, you’re simply wonderful .”
                              • Dawn grinned, her cheeks going red.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 11:18
                                "Th-thanks," she said. "Glad I amuse you." She hesitated, then wiped away some of the tears of laughter. Her other arm stayed where it was.
                                • Des blushed.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 11:21
                                  Well, no, ‘blushed’ is an understatement. His face turned red and so did his ears. He stared at Dawn, his mouth slightly open.
                                  • Dawn's grin faded slowly.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 11:33
                                    She swallowed and stared back, her face going even redder.
                                    • Des seemed to be in shock.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 11:36
                                      He leaned in just this little bit, blushing even harder.
                                      • Dawn's blush deepened.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 11:55
                                        Trying to quash a small, nervous smile, she leaned in as well, slowly moving close enough that they were breathing the same air and their view of each others' eyes began to blur.
                                        • Des froze.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 11:57
                                          For a moment, anyway; he gave a barely-perceptible shrug and leaned further, planting his lips on Dawn’s.
                                          • Dawn froze for a moment as well...DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 12:11
                                            ...and then relaxed. She let her eyes close as the kiss continued, tentatively resting one hand lightly against the side of Des' neck.
                                            • Des broke the kiss...Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 12:13
                                              … after what seemed like infinity to him, though it was but a short moment. “Wow,” was all he managed afterwards.
                                              • Dawn smiled dreamily at him.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 12:16
                                                "Yeah," she said quietly. "Wow."
                                                • Slowly, Des raised his hand.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 12:29
                                                  He awkwardly ran it through Dawn’s hair. “That was wonderful,” he whispered.
                                                  • Dawn leaned cautiously into the touch.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 13:00
                                                    "It was," she agreed. Her thumb brushed lightly against his skin. "We--we should do that more often, really."
                                                    • Des smiled widely.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 13:01
                                                      “Oh, yes. Oh, most definitely yes,” he said. “That was awesome. Just like you are.”
                                                      • ...smiled back. "You're pretty good with the compliments. I think I'll keep you." She paused, and went completely red. "I mean--um--"
                                                        • Des chuckled.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 13:19
                                                          “That’s it, I’m taking you home with me,” he said with a chuckle. “You’re so lovely and cute and awesome I must have you.”
                                                          • Dawn laughed, blushing harder.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 14:23
                                                            "Aw, shucks," she managed. "I'm not--you're--" She shook her head and leaned in to kiss him again, her movements careful and a little nervous. "That's cute," she said when her mouth was free again.... more
                                                            • Des grinned like an idiot.Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 14:26
                                                              “‘s weird, y’know,” he murmured after a while. “Nobody said anything.” He leaned in for another kiss.
                                                              • Dawn leaned back a short time later, dazed.DawnFire, Sat Aug 8 14:31
                                                                "Who would've said? What would they have said?" She didn't seem particularly invested in getting a response: her eyes didn't quite make it to his, and she leaned in for yet another kiss shortly after ... more
                                                                • “Heh.”Desdendelle, Sat Aug 8 14:33
                                                                  For a while Des just snogged Dawn, saying nothing. “We’ve been snogging each other for a bit and nobody said a thing,” he said after a while.
