Hey kettle, it's the pot calling
Tue Jan 31, 2017 06:52

Of course Marissa was more interesting than potions homework, that didn't exactly need to be clarified. On the other hand, Danny did need to do his potions assignment to obtain a passing grade, he didn't really need to do Marissa… er, help Marissa. That sounded weird, even in his head. He blamed her for that, because not that long ago he’d thought she had been about to kiss him, and he still wasn't sure how he felt about that. Luckily, it had turned out she was just teasing him, which he should have expected - he and Marissa tended to communicate best by teasing, flirting with and mocking each other. For Danny it didn't mean anything, and he had always assumed Marissa was on the same metaphorical page. “The Potion book is in my room, so…wanna hang out anyway, and I’ll bring it to you at dinner?”

Feeling it would be rude, churlish and dull to say no to that offer, Dardanius shrugged. “Yeah, okay,” he replied. So much for being productive. Well, maybe he could try and offer some advice, as novice as it might be; he was hardly a theatrical expert. “And you did look a bit tall,” he added, seeing as she had asked his opinion. “It depends how much attention you want to draw to yourself.” Knowing Marissa, probably a lot - they both had that in common - but he didn't know anything about the play so couldn't be more helpful than that.

“What's the show about?” He asked to be polite, rather than out if any genuine interest. “I mean, I don't actually care,” he clarified with a smirk, “but if I'm going to help with the stage picture,” he used air quotes around the words, “it might help to know.” It wasn't that he had no interest in theatre - he always came to see the shows - he just didn't have any real desire to be involved. He wasn't a great singer, not an especially talented dancer, and he didn't often respond well to direction. Plus he already had classes and Quidditch, and he didn't really want to give up all his free time; he enjoyed doing nothing, sometimes.

  • Someone is full of himself. - Marissa, Sun Jan 29 01:49
    “Like, does it make the visual look weird?” Marissa realized she was talking to Danny, who despite being a Lyra, wasn’t exactly the most useful when it came to blocking. He didn’t do shows or... more

      • I think I'll just let it ring - Marissa, Tue Jan 31 14:25
        She flashed Danny a very bright smile when he agreed to stay. She knew he would. Potions could be interesting, but Marissa thought that only applied if they were in class with Rob. Danny may not have ... more
        • Rude. - Danny, Wed Feb 1 06:55
          Since even Marissa was calling the musical stupid, Danny wondered how she expected him to be interested. He did his best to listen to her synopsis of the plot, and only zoned out a couple of times.... more
          • You don't really think I'm rude - Marissa, Thu Feb 2 19:04
            Marissa started thinking of other shows she would rather do than Footloose . The problem, which Garen always pointed out to her, was that her desires weren’t school appropriate. Marissa liked shows... more
            • That depends on your next post - Danny, Fri Feb 3 06:55
              For just a moment it seemed as though Marissa was going to interpret his comment they way it had been intended, vis-à-vis stage kissing. But then she sat up, and said “Have you ever- wait, you’ve... more
              • I'll wait and see how you feel - Marissa, Fri Feb 3 12:36
                She waited for Danny to answer. It was almost suspenseful. There was no way that Danny hadn’t kissed anyone before. They were teenagers at a small school, though. If he had, wouldn’t she have heard... more
                • Aren't you the gentleman - Danny, Fri Feb 3 15:16
                  Marissa scooted a little closer, and Danny tried not to be too concerned by her proximity. He still hadn’t forgotten that time in DADA. He vaguely wondered whether she might have teased him in that... more
                  • I have manners - Marissa, Sat Feb 4 11:32
                    Marissa did think Danny was sweet. He was great, really. She could always trust Danny for some kind of laugh. They teased and flirted all the time. He really was one of her best friends at RMI. Rose, ... more
                    • You are a rare breed - Danny, Sat Feb 4 14:13
                      As Danny finished his explanation, he felt that Marissa was being surprisingly understanding. No wait, that wasn't fair; her being understanding was completely within her character. Danny was aware... more
                      • I think we're both pretty unique - Marissa, Sat Feb 4 15:48
                        It didn’t look like Danny was going to kiss her, and Marissa couldn’t help but be disappointed by that. She wasn’t the type of person to push someone if they said no; it wasn’t her style. People just ... more
                        • Just like everybody else - Danny, Sat Feb 4 17:01
                          He hadn’t even realised that he wanted to have this conversation with someone, but now that it had happened, Danny was glad about it. He didn’t think his kissing habits, or lack thereof, would ever... more
