hey I don't keep up with spoilers or read the comics but do you expect any Caryl stuff to veer into the "romance" direction in 5B? I've heard some say they expect it to go canon in the S5 finale, and others say it's been confirmed there won't be anything official between them at all this season. Just curious what you're thoughts are!

During 5A I TRULY expected Caryl to go canon in 5B. However, once I saw the tone of Crossed and Coda I completely reset my expectations and did not believe it would be addressed in any way in 5B, and we’d be focus on Daryl’s grief and whatnot.

HOWEVER, Scott Gimple and Robert Kirkman’s most recent interviews about 5B have fanned my flames of hope again. Below cut for spoilery speculation:

Alpha

Group behavior

Inclination for comfortable and pleasant group atmosphere, in the emotional, sensorial, and intellectual aspects. An ideal Alpha group situation is the exchange of light-hearted jokes while discussing imaginative ideas, movies, or sometimes sports, all while enjoying pleasant food and drink. Narrating personal experiences usually takes the form of telling a joke; funny personal experiences are preferred over “serious” ones. The exchange of sober concrete details are avoided. If the group is playing a game together, the fun and jokes that go along with it are at least as important as the game itself. They avoid generating “heavy” moments; any dramatic expressions are limited in time, most often in service of a joke. Alphas are also perhaps the most likely types to participate in group use of mind-altering substances.

Alpha discussions tend to go off on tangents, in whatever direction seems most interesting or funny at the moment. Unusual personal observations are common, resulting from the analysis of the idiosyncrasies or inconsistencies of everyday life. If many in the group share the same observations, they are likely to express their agreement emphatically, so as to create a kind of “mental harmony” which enhances the group dynamic. If a new problem is encountered, it is expanded and developed in as many ways as possible, until some kind of satisfactory conclusion is reached.

Alphas make no distinction between “insiders” and “outsiders”, easily drawing people into a conversation once it has begun — though they tend to just as easily withdraw if the person is not receptive. Likewise, they prefer to have the same behavior at work as at play; they find formal speech and dress to be pretentious, unnecessarily limiting, and even ridiculous. Alphas dislike the idea that there is something going on “behind the scenes”, preferring to keep things (especially personal motivations) as open and straightforward as possible.

Romance styles

Romantic relationships usually evolve from sharing activities and interests for fun in a two-person version of the group behavior description above. Priority is given to keeping the partner happy in the sense of a good mood and amused on a daily basis, with avoidance of direct accusations or unnecessarily harsh criticism; relationships are seen as a source of day-to-day fun and happiness. Focus on remembering dates of particular significance and celebrating them. Playful interactions are based around light teasing and making the partner laugh; intimate atmospheres are based on generating a comfortable, welcoming, cozy atmosphere.

Beta

Group behavior

Preference for larger groups where participation is “collective” rather than focused on individuals for any length of time, but with likely “domination” by more assertive individuals. This means that beta groups discuss topics that everyone could contribute to. Frequent unexplained inside jokes are considered impolite because they exclude other people. Jokes are loud and general, often about stereotypes. Betas attempt to draw others into the group activity: for example, in a situation where there are “group rituals” going on (as in drinking, dancing, etc), there is good-natured pressure on “outsiders” to also participate in them, with a sort of puzzled dismay if they prefer not to. They also try to draw attention to people who might otherwise feel left out - usually this is done with general jokes directed at individuals. In more subdued moments, discussion of ideas involving present trends and political implications, with strong views voiced. Personal experiences tend to be discussed from the point of view of their external impact rather than the individual’s own personal view of them.

For Betas atmosphere is more important than specific activity or topic. Groups of betas spend time together to entertain each other. They exchange fun (and often loud) stories to feed the atmosphere, so that the group energy won’t run out. People talk fast and they often add comments to other people’s stories if they feel that the pace is slowing down. When someone starts to talk, he takes on the obligation to entertain for the duration of the monologue and, in a friendly group, other people only interrupt to try and help him keep control of the atmosphere.

Talking about personal matters in a group is not something that Betas generally do. It’s viewed almost as treachery when something that was told in a one-on-one conversation is retold in front of a group, or when someone criticizes another person’s traits in front of the group. Betas believe such things should be told in private and should not be used to embarrass or belittle a friend.

Betas also don’t like it when people tell long, slow stories. Betas try to be polite and listen to the story, and they will forgive you if it was boring for them, but if someone does it too often they might not be invited back. Betas restrict long-winded stories to one-on-one conversations. However, IEIs are more likely to adjust to the slower stories because they are very flexible conversationalists.

Romance styles

Beta romantic relationships tend to start from intense exchanges of emotions, either of a playful, aggressive sort, or of a more “tormented” sort based on personal images of special meaning, “romantic” in a 19th-century sense. The two sorts merge together to make Beta the quadra most inclined towards “romantic courtship” in the everyday sense of the term. A relationship is felt to be “lacking” if not accompanied by intense demonstrations of emotions. Romantic relationships are also held together by a sense of common goals and purpose, and of the other person as the best partner towards achieving them. Betas are the most intense of all quadras in terms of exchanges of emotional and sensual interplay.

Delta

Group behavior

Groups made up of primarily Delta types tend to be focused on working on projects, enjoying physical recreation, or finding out interesting things about each other. Laughter is usually subdued and brief; instead, people smile a lot and try to be witty and welcoming. Groups need to be focused on some specific productive activity or topic of discussion, or else they fall apart. In Delta groups, there is a lot of splintering and decentralization. This allows for more focused and productive interaction with only those who share your particular interests or sentiments. People jump from small group to small group easily to keep up their interest level. No one demands that the entire group listen to one person or that everyone do the same thing. Delta Quadra types believe that if everyone just pursues their own interests and makes some accommodations for others, the group will be better off anyway. Delta Quadra types do not focusing on building group identity or unity of purpose, but prefer for the group to remain splintered and decentralized.

Romance styles

Delta romantic relationships usually begin simply as the encounter of two individuals interested in a relationship and each other in a particular moment, with very little in terms of outward demonstrations of “romance” in the “wooing” sense of the term or in strong external demonstrations of emotions. Deltas are more focused on the present moment than Gammas, and therefore even relationships of very strong attachment do not lead to constant concerns as to their longer-term practical feasibility. Deltas see as optimal romantic relationships those where partners spend time together on fun activities and sharing ideas of potential practical application. Romantic atmospheres are low-key, based on comfort but practicality.

when i was a freshman in high school a family friend of ours bought me a pair of red ballet flats with a red ribbon laced through them and despite their being purchased from the clearance section of a shopko they were the best fitting best wearing shoes i have ever owned. seven and a half wide instead of the usual eight so my feet looked dainty and correct in them walking all over the country every spring and summer and fall until i was moving away from college post-graduation and my mother saw the holes and made me throw them out. i have been extremely sad without red shoes, for the past six or so months, and two nights ago in an unusual moment of assertiveness i ordered a new pair of red flats — seven and a half wide — online. today i got the shipping confirmation email, and tonight i read this paragraph. the only thing i know how to articulate about my feelings on all this is: not surprised.

This had to be one of the best days of business for naXos yet; a club accustomed to its own infamy and lucrative capabilities (not at all unlike its owner, come to think of it), making that statement even in the meager terms of mere potentiality was nothing to scoff at. The music was loud, the crowd was lively, the bodies crushed in together to an almost uncomfortable capacity, and the bar barely able to keep up with incoming orders. It was just the sort of business night to put Dio in a terrific mood, all smiles and handshakes, pretending to know people, cutting through the shuffle of humanity on his way to the neon bar.

"And you thought it would look gauche,” he called, teasing the head of his senior barstaff. The blonde smiled back and held up her hands, not trusting her voice to cut through the thrumming bass with the same grace as Theoinos’—the man had a talented. A god-given talent, if you will. She mouthed to him instead (the usual?) and went to work getting his drink at his nod. Great room, great service, great fun for all!
Dio was just contemplating going for a spin on the dancefloor and seeing who wanted to go for a spin in the private suite above the club when a flash in the mirror-back of the bar brought his attention to a little someone a bit further off.

A little someone too young to be enjoying the atmosphere on a regularly operating night.
Mortals. Will they ever learn?

She was a lucky little minx tonight; his mood was soaring too high to let a little thin like the dubious legality of her presence spoil his fun. There was nothing wrong with a little partying, after all, a little livening up of the dread work week, and the kid clearly meant business. It did his debauched little heart good to see someone really committing to the art of having a good time: Were it not for the divinity of his status, the eternity and dark energy tracing ancient  patterns through his veins, he might never have guessed she was a day under nineteen at the outside.

A good club owner, having recognized a minor in their midst, would have had the little nymph tossed out on her keister, perhaps even confiscating her fake ID for the trouble—the issue inherent in the line of thinking being that Dio was far from a good club owner, and that in fact it took very little to convince him to look the other way. A good story, for example, might bribe him into temporary blindness….

Being so decided in the little shit’s favor, his wineglass barely made contact with the counter before he was up and off, crossing to the girl before accosting her with a practiced wave of the hand, just in case. (Oh, sure, look down on him for binding a little mortal girl to her chair for a few minutes—it’s not like he turned her into stone or anything! She can still move…just not away. Not until the god is satisfied, at least.)

"I thought girls your age spent the night watching Mean Girls and swooning over Justin Timberlake.” He sat himself smoothly down next to her with a charming smile, mischief lighting his eyes in a way no fluorescent knock-off ever could.

With the photoshoot finally being done, Kyungwoon made her way towards the changing room to finally get rid of these pesky clothes. As much as she didn’t mind female clothing, because sometimes she herself would wear them out in public, it all depended on her mood and cravings for that day.

And today was not the day.

Lips pursed together to whistle quietly, she stopped the moment someone unusual had caught her gaze the added question making her eyebrow quirk in surprise.

…Crossdressing? I don’t know if they will put you in a tutu for this photoshoot but you would not look good in one.” Kyungwon went simply with her basic korean, assuming that the other might know it .

send me ♩ for my muse to catch yours singing in the shower 

If there was one thing that Sebastian found adorable, it was his new boyfriend, Kurt Hummel. This was the first real relationship he had been in; this was the first relationship that Sebastian had where he felt stable, where he felt cared for. He knew he was falling in love with the younger man but he just wasn’t sure how to say those three little words. There was so much power behind love and he didn’t want to say it too early. He had to keep Kurt in his life and so he knew that there would be a moment that would be clear when he should tell Kurt he loved him. 

That moment came at the unusual moment when Sebastian was picking Kurt up for their usual Saturday night date out. He already had a key to Kurt’s place, so he let himself in. He heard a soft melody coming from the washroom, so he decided to investigate. What he found was his gorgeous boyfriend in the shower, singing to himself. God, how did he get so lucky? How was this beautiful man his? He smiled in admiration of how amazing Kurt was. He knocked on the shower door, letting Kurt know that he was there. He quickly stripped his clothes off and joined his boyfriend in the shower, carefully wrapping his arms around him. “I love you,” he noted softly, a gentle smile gracing his lips. Sure, it was a weird moment but it felt right.
