The first time Derek sees him, it’s only about a two-second interaction. Derek’s waiting for the bartender to make his rum and coke, idly scanning the crowd to see if Ransom and Holster have made it here yet. He can see someone approaching him out of the corner of his eye, and then there’s a cute redhead standing next to him. Nursey turns to smile at him.
“Hey,” the guy grins, smile wide and easy. Fuck, he’s cute. “Are you here with anyone?”
“Yeah, I’m waiting for them, now, actually - “ Derek blurts out, like a moron.
“Oh, shit, um, sorry,” the guy stammers, and then he’s hurriedly walking away and Derek wants to catch him to tell him he misunderstood, but the bartender is finally sliding his drink across the bar and Ransom and Holster are suddenly on either side of him and he has to fumble for his wallet while Ransom and Holster jostle and chirp him for his outfit choice.
I used the “can you sit on my face so i can suffocate to death” line with my crush, and her answer was “no, you’re being selfish, we should do something that could give us both the sweet embrace of death” and i might be in love with her
Can I have headcannons for Aoba Josai and their s/o trying to lighten the mood or be romantic by saying some cheesy pick up line and (possibly) failing?
Anonymous said to sfw-haikyuu-nsfw: (pick up lines ask) Oops, I didn’t realize your limit is five characters. My bad. Could you do… Oikawa, Iwaizumi, Matsukawa, and Hanamaki for the ask?
It’s okay, Anon, I’m just glad that you got back to me with the characters you wanted! And I hope you enjoy!
“I’m not a photographer, but I can picture you and me together”
Like, dude, Oikawa is a selfie queen, he would legit already have his phone out with the camera app on. Hell, he’d probably already be leaning in to take the photo, smile wide and resting his head on their shoulder and everything!
omg, and they’d also pose, because, ya know, if he’s gonna be taking a picture might as well give him a good one, no? So he’d be all stoked when they smile and tilt their head towards his own.
But as soon as that flash goes on and he moves to take a look at it before turning to them to look at it, they’re just walking away as though they were never stopped by him.
He’d run after them so fast! Because he can’t have a beautiful picture of them without having their number as well! Meanwhile, Mattsun and Makki are already starting on their own string of jokes on his failed attempt at picking someone up.
Okay, like I really want Iwa to be all smooth and pick up someone random with an awesome pick up line, but I just can’t see it! This boy doesn’t get a date that way, he’d be more likely to use a line on someone that he’s already dating and that he’s comfortable with being such a dork in front of.
But, holy shit, when he does drop it, it’s the fucking smoothest thing they’ve ever heard. Like, they all went to the beach for the day or something, right and as they’re leaving, he moves to look at their back all concerned like saying, “Are you sunburn?” and as this sinks in and they’re asking where and how bad, he just drops the other half with a smirk like, “Or have you always been this hot?”
Holy MF! All would be dead silent as they pray to the gods a thanks for bringing this smooth MR-er into their life! LOL!
Ah, and the other third years would just LOSE IT. Oikawa would be asking where his Iwa-chan when while Makki and Mattsun are already working on setting up lessons.
So, I feel like Mattsun has the most potential of pulling off a shitty pick up line, but he messes it up for himself by pushing it all too far. Like, you just need one good line to break the ice but he just keeps coming at them with line after line!
He’d tap them on the shoulder and as soon as their gazes meet he’d just drop “Hi, I’m writing a term paper on the finer things in life and was wondering if I could interview you?” Dude, he’d have them hooked, all giggly and smiles, but the dork just WON’T STOP and he’d do it again saying something like, “You look familiar, do we have a class together? Cause I swear we have chemistry.”
Literally, he ruins it for himself. And he’s left returning to the booth with his friends with the start of a good pick up story that just ends in a car wreck!
Seriously, boy needs to learn to say when enough is enough and know what he’s caught the fish. Someone teach this boy the proper way to flirt!
Omg, I just feel that this boy would put on a whole freaking show to go along with his pick up line (almost like Barney from How I Met Your Mother, but not quite that extreme).
But he’d spot them across the way and he’d walk over before pretending to trip over himself and run right into them. He’d apologize, hand on their elbow and then just be like, “I promise, I’m not drunk, I’m just intoxicated by you.” Like, he’ll try REALLY hard to make it all look coincidental, but his friends know the truth!
I can actually see that one working, where they smile and touch his arm in return as a flirting gesture and next thing you know they’re flirting each other up.
Dude, but I just have this hella headcanon where Makki and Mattsun have this thing where they’re interested in the same girls and “what? you mean my friend is the weird guy that hit on you earlier tonight and you think we’re playing an elaborate joke on you?” Yeah, that’s a bust, lol!
You know what would be an interesting fic to see? Bruce Banner getting kidnapped by some scientists who figure out a way to temporarily disable the Hulk. And they think they’re safe and they’ve got him contained. But the thing is even without the Hulk, Bruce Banner is a genius pretty much on par with Tony Stark and Reed Richards; a genius who survived on the run for years at a time. So no he can’t smash his way out, but he’s still a genius and w/o Hulk there are no distractions. Cue a lot of trouble for those mistaken scientists.
i wanna talk about this little segment of animation on peridot because i think it’s really great. a'ite so at the beginning of the ep here she’s having this breakdown right? peridot’s already infamous for her incredible facial expressions, and this segment is definitely no exception,,,
but what i love even more is how it’s expressed through her fingers, how such a unique design element is used so naturally and dynamically in her language.
i don’t know how exactly she moves them, but it’s clear they reflect something of her state of mind. peridot loves nothing if not order; keeping a bunch of little poles in a hand or otherwise functional arrangement all the time seems like a unnecessarily small thing to point out for that, until you look at how they behave when she’s not fully keeping control.
they go everywhere. she’s a mess. girl’s on her last desperate nerve here and it shows. she doesn’t even have them in a sensible arrangement until she deliberately gestures with them, and even then they’re way more loose in this scene than any before.
like she’s literally barely holding together.
it’s mildly interesting that she’s more collected [visually, at least] immediately after he last hope is extinguished, until she has to explain to steven about their shared fate.
it’s easy to see what she’s trying to do with her hands, just a general “throwing hands up in exasperation” gesture, but geez, at this point their arrangement barely resembles anything any more. and then this:
side note- i also think it’s cool how they managed to get her to simultaneously do like 3 different nervous gestures with one hand here; she’s just putting her fingers to use wherever they ended up.
even the hand that’s just idling as a hand is floating everywhere haphazardly
anyway my favorite part is this bit here,
it’s again easy to understand it simply as an “okay listen, kid” kind of gesture, but the way her fingers methodically reorganize back into hands as she inhales, it’s like she’s recomposing not only her stance, but her thoughts, both of which are conveyed awesomely through this deliberate “lining up and holding together” animation.
peridot has so many ways to be expressive and the crew utilizes them all so expertly and i love it. and i mean, this isn’t even touching how shelby rabara nailed every voice crack and anxious falter in peridot’s voice while all this is happening…
