Ahem. Ship meme. Jeff/Annie. That is all.
who holds the umbrella when it rains
Jeff does, because he’s tall and can shelter
them both effectively that way.
who is the grumpiest in the
Jeff, usually, but since both he and Annie are
morning people he soon forgets his grumpiness when he sees her smile.
who worries more when the other
Jeff starts out as this in
their earlier years of knowing each other but by their in their fifth year of
knowing each other, this slowly begins shifting to Annie, though Jeff still
ends up worrying more because when she gets hurt, fear overwhelms him because
he can’t lose her. He can’t. Because he loves her, and because she makes him
feel alive again. She gives life to him. She’s his Eve.
who plays pranks on the other
Annie is always the one to end
up playing pranks on Jeff. Most of them are tiny pranks, like moving the
objects on his desk around. Jeff rarely notices though, but when he does notice
he pretends to act all annoyed with her whilst still giving her one of his big
dumb happy grins.
who is always the first to suggest
cuddling on the sofa
Jeff, after a long day
of teaching (because now he’s making an effort, again and because he and Annie
have been married for five years now) will often come home, head for the sofa,
and then gesture for Annie to come over. The best part of his day is when Annie
snuggles up against him and he can feel the pressure of her body on his as
their hearts begin to beat in sync.
who insists on creating
nicknames for the other
That one was all Jeff, so many
years ago when he first uses it to sweet-talk Annie (and the rest of the group)
into not lecturing him for being late, but it all changes when that little
nickname he uses for Annie – “Milady” – turns into something else the night of
the pep rally.
And despite it being six years
with that endearment exchange of “Milady – Milord” they’re much too content
with it to bother ever changing it.
who drools on the other when
When they sleep together in
bed, Annie is so small she fits perfectly in the curve of Jeff’s body as he
nestles up against her. Jeff is too meticulous to ever really drool, but
sometimes his mouth gets tangled up in her hair and she wakes up with his scent
on her in the morning.
says ‘I love you’ first
According to their history, Annie does during the
first time they team up to investigate conspiracies at the school. It’s an
off-script moment, one that somehow always brings them back around to each
“Jeff, I only did it because I love you!” Annie
blurts out, and even within the guise of their acting, it merits the slightest
reaction from Jeff as his face flickers slightly as Annie gasps.
It’s in this way that when their kids ask to hear
their story later; Jeff admits that Annie said it first – even if only by proxy
of acting – even though once he found
the courage he said it first. This
response just makes their children roll their eyes and say, with infinite annoyance,
that “Mom and Dad say ‘I love you’ whenever they say ‘Milady Milord’ to each
Whenever that happens both Jeff and Annie smile
slyly at each other and agree to a draw.
