AU!Bella (I might start calling her auBella because I'm too lazy for exclamation marks right now xD): (frowns slightly) I don't think I know you, though. Unless you've been anywhere near Phoenix in the last few years?
Aleck: "No. Born and raised in 'generic small town, USA'. Never really strayed too far." shrugs "I dunno, maybe I'm thinking of some movie I watched or some book I read."
Jo: "That sounds more plausible than you meeting actual people, to be perfectly honest."
Aleck: "...True." >.>
(Honestly, I just couldn't let slip the fact that these guys exist in a universe where Twilight is an actual work of fiction. And that Aleck was forcefully exposed to it by his ex in multiple ways. :P)
Alex: (peeks head around door) Say what about me now?
Jo: "We didn't?"
Aleck: "Lex is my sister's boss."
Jo: "Her." points
Alexis: Waves "What the hell am I doing here? I have a million things to do right now."
Jo: "Just play along and don't question it, Boss." >.>
Alexis: "Uhm...Okay?" o_o
Seriously, though, bless you Jo. Have some 'much-needed-human-decency' cookies ^-^
Jo: "Oh. Thank you. Human decency cookies are best cookies." thumbs up
Jake: (pointing at Jenna before she can answer) What social life?
Jenna: (slaps some folders she was working on onto the coffee table) For god's sake, yes, I study a lot, but I'm not a bloody hermit! And I don't see you going out with mates at the moment, do you?
Aleck: "That sounds awfully like us in high school."
Jo: "Yeah, but hopefully happier." :P
Aleck: "Also, I kinda was a hermit. Or I would've been if you'd let me."
Jo: "Pft. Nope. If I had to suffer putting up with people, I was gonna take you
with me." :|
Aleck: "Fair." shrugs
auBella: It's...lively. Too lively.
Jo: "How lively is too lively I wonder?"
Aleck: "Personally I'd consider being pantsed in the middle of a bar too lively."
Jo: "I think anyone would consider that too much, dork."
Aleck: "I dunno. There are weirdos out there."
Jo: Snort "True."
Jo: "I take it you wouldn't like to meet Lilith, then?" ^.-
Aleck: "Geez, I wonder if someone who says they're scared of spiders would like to meet your giant tarantula, Joanne."
Jo: "Would you kindly take that snark of yours and shov-..."
Ooookay, let's take a break you two. :|
Jo: "He started it." :|
Aleck: "I was just pointing out that you asked a stupid question."
Jo: "Look, sometimes people are scared of spiders because they just don't understand them. I'm just trying to be helpful, dork." >.>
(Honestly, while researching tarantulas and tarantula care for writing Jo I found this article saying that getting a tarantula is a good way to work out your fear of spiders and HA. HA. No, it's not. Whoever wrote that is a moron.)
auBella: I think I'm scared of a lot of things. There's the obvious, my mom's condition getting worse. Charlie getting hurt on the job. Dying. Losing myself... Actually, the thing I'm most scared by is the thought I'll never find out who I am. I'm never going to figure out what I want to do with my life or who I want to be. (pauses) I'm stopping there, I think you get the idea.
Aleck: "Oh hey, you're scared of Charlie getting hurt too."
Jo: "It's not the same Charlie, Aleck. Now you're just trying to annoy me."
Aleck: "Maybe." After a pause "Okay, probably." :P
Jo: Punches her brother in the arm, hard "On a serious note... Honestly, I think everyone's scared of that. And I'd like to be that person who says shit like 'oh, it gets better', but... That's not my personal experience, so... Good luck there, kiddo. You're gonna need it."
Also Jo I think we all know the reason we don't expect a boring life from you >.>
Jo: "We do?"
Aleck: "We do." nods
Jo: "A'right. Guess we do then." confused silence
Ana: Hm. Some of the servants are nice, but the fact is, no one ever says what they think to your face. Your servants are always overly nice; the court says what they think you want to hear. It's difficult to find someone you can actually talk to.
Jo: "That's what brothers are good for. You can count on them to straight up say you're being a bitch when you're straight up being a bitch."
Aleck: "You're welcome." thumbs up
A pregnant wife :)
Fisk: I always wanted a pet snake. :/
Jo: "Me too. Though I don't think I can accommodate one in my room right now sadly."
Aleck: "Why don't you ever want normal pets?"
Jo: "They're boring." Shrugs "What's interesting about having a dog? I mean, they're cute and you can play with them, yeah, but it's just a dog."
Aleck: "I don't think you and I have the same motivations for wanting a pet."
Jo: "Guess not."
Q: What kind of (non-fantasy) adventures would you consider going on, if you aren't on one like that already? Eg. Climbing Mount Everest, deep sea diving, backpacking through the desert/rainforest, etc. etc.
Jo: "I want to swim with sharks!"
Aleck: "Why do you have a death wish?" :|
Jo: "It's perfectly safe, dork. Jeez." >.>
Aleck: "Sharks aren't safe. If sharks were safe they wouldn't put you in a metal cage to 'swim' with them."
Jo: "I'm not going in a cage."
Jo: "I'm swimming with the sharks, dork."
Aleck: Makes a choking sound "WHAT?"
Jo: "Don't have a stroke, Aleck. It's fine. I looked into it."
Aleck: "I'm not letting you do that."
Jo: Sighs "Yes you are. I'm an adult. You can't stop me."
Aleck: "I'm not letting you do that!"
Jo: Mutters "Fucks sake."
Jo: "Answer the question, dork."
Aleck: "I don't know. Maybe... Maybe I'd want to go to Ireland. Dad wanted to take us, remember?"
Jo: "Mhm. Yeah. I remember."
Q: What's something you're scared of?
Jo: "Losing people. Again. I guess."
Aleck: "I was gonna say roaches, but now that sounds like a weak answer." :/
Jo: "That's... Probably a better answer. No one needs to be depressed." >.>
Q: How comfortable are you discussing yourself on a personal level with others in general?
Aleck: "I'm rarely comfortable with people in general in most situations." Shrug
Jo: "I'm fine being open with people if I know they actually give a shit and aren't just prying for the sake of it. Otherwise, no. It's my business. Thank you."
Q: Is there anyone you greatly dislike, or maybe even hate?
Jo: "There are a handful of people that I hate, yes."
Aleck: "What? She shot me. Not to mention everything before that."
Jo: "I know. I just really didn't expect you to admit it. Therapy is really working out, huh?"
Aleck: Shrugs "I guess."
Jo: "What about the shit-weasel? Hazel's ex. What's his name again?"
Aleck: "Jason. Yeah. I definitely hate him. I might end up breaking his neck one day."
Jo: "You know she won't be happy if you do that."
Aleck: "I know." :|
Q: Did you ever do something you knew you shouldn't be doing?
