Beautiful People - Love Is In The Air
Beautiful People is hosted by Cait at Paper Fury and Sky at Further Up and Further In.

I'm...not really a big romance writer, so I wasn't going to be able to do this one.

But then I wrote a play in three days -

(*Rolls eyes* I knew you were going to work that in somewhere.)

What can I say? I'm proud of it. I probably won't be when I go back and edit it, okay, definitely won't be, but, right now, I'm proud.
Anyway, this play has a romance in it, so here we are.

How did they first meet?

She came to the court where he was a knight when her sister married the king. 
What were their first impressions of each other?

She thought he'd respect her as much as the other knights (which is to say, not at all). 

He expected her to fall at the feet of the designated womaniser. He was seriously impressed when she didn't.
How long have they been a couple?

They're a couple for literally two acts. I'm not 100% certain as to what that is in real time - a week? Two?
How committed/loyal are they to each other? Would they break up over a secret or a disagreement? Could stress drive them apart? Would they die for each other?


You had to ask.

List 5 “food quirks” they know about each other. (Ex: how they take their coffee, if they’re allergic to something, etc….and feel free to mention other non-food quirks!)

He knows that, by the time she comes down for breakfast, she will already have an aswer for anything fired her way. He also knows that she isn't going to stop to eat said breakfast - she's a grab and go type of girl. Even though she will claim that some things are only possible when you're hungry and desperate, he knows that there's no way on earth she'll ever skip a meal. He knows that she likes her meat well-done (the only way to have it) and her wine red.

She knows that, when he eats, he tunes out everyone around him because he's usually surrounded by morons. She knows that he can get (figuratively) lost in the library and forget to eat. She knows that he can't hold his alcohol, and he doesn't like it that much anyway. She knows that he'd pick fish over meat anyday. She knows that he doesn't have much of a sweet tooth.
Does anyone disapprove of their relationship?

Like, the entire court. She's the illegitimate sister of the new Queen. He's a young knight. They keep their relationship secret for a reason. 
What would be an ideal date?

A walk in the countryside. In broad daylight. It's never going to happen.
What are their personality dynamics? Similar? Contrasting? Do they fight a lot or mesh perfectly?

Their relationship basically revolves around trying to outplay each other. They're both very smart and very sarky.
What have been their best and worst moments together as a couple?

Well, I think Act Four is simultaneously a high and a low point. The sarcasm is on point, and one of them is entirely motivated by love. know what, I'm going to let this question end on a positive.
Where do they see themselves and their relationship in the next few years?


(Oh, well done. You made Mordred cry!)
