raph couldn’t have testified as to just how he’d ended here —- logistically, it was perfectly explicable, he’d swiped his fob over the door to the apartment building, stumbled up a set of stairs and to the very end of the hall, unlocked his door. somewhere between that door and the bed, he’d lost almost all of his clothes, save a left sock. and apparently, someone else had tagged along with him. that part was easy to explain. what remained a mystery was the bigger picture: why was raph, after a night that he barely remembered, sleeping basically naked beside a stranger?
a light groan escaped his lips as he rolled onto his back, rubbing sensitive eyes, untwisting his legs from the sheets. through the window ( the blinds were open and he hoped none of his neighbors across the street had seen anything unsavory ) the early morning light, soft and not yet abrasive, shone in, lighting the practical color scale of pictures he’d taken that lined the wall. it all looked a little too nice for his mood right now —- he’d fucked up big time, by the looks of it. there’d never been a case in which anonymous sex had made him feel even half decent the next morning, and it was a wonder that he still got himself into these kinds of things.
back onto his side he turned, facing away from the woman, biting his lip. there would undoubtedly be regret on both sides for this, raph thought. he was probably just a little too hung over at the moment to really feel the guilt. give it a few minutes, and it would be there. until then, he could try to make this less awkward —- leaning over the side of the bed, raph reached for a pair a of boxers to pull on, to provide him at least the most basic of coverage, it was literally the least he could do. he also searched for the right sock, but at the moment, it was nowhere to be seen.
exhaling heavily, as though he were about to go deliver bad news to someone ( in a way, he was ) raph turned himself around to face the girl, just as he began to feel her stirring, hopefully waking, as well.
i was tagged by @chiakexe to do this eleven question tag game! Yes, more excuses to talk about myself! So ready~
So, some rules first:
rule 1: always post the rules
rule 2: answer the questions and write 11 new ones
rule 3: tag 11 people (that’s a lot!)
So, chiakexe’s questions:
1. do you have an irrational fear?
2. do you play a musical instrument?
A little piano and I used to play cello, but I could never figure out that vibrato thing so I haven’t played in years.
3. when was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?
This morning I watched the Colbert Report with my dad and HE CRASHED THE CONVENTION AND THE THING WiTH THE ELEVATORS, I CURLED UP IN A BALL ON THE FLOOR AND I COULDN’T BREATHE.
4. what time is it right now?
5. how clean is your bedroom?
It’s a disaster. There is all this paper that has been collecting since eight grade I still haven’t dealt with. I just don’t know what to do with paper. It started as one pile on the floor, but now the piles line the walls… I need to go through it, but I just can’t seem to convince myself.

Polar bears and penguins are really close! Just give me all the stereotypical winter animals.

The first new Star Trek movie.
8. what was the last song you sang out loud?
The Ballad of Mona Lisa by Panic! at the Disco
9. what was the last thing you ate?
A “pizza bomb” I don’t know why they’re called that, honestly. It was like pizza sauce and cheese wrapped in dough. A homemade pizza roll, kinda.
10. what’s a quote that means something special to you?
I’ve always put a lot of weight in “I don’t want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really.” from Coraline.
11. what’s your favorite song?
The most painful question to answer - like picking between children - but I love Psychedelic Heroine by The GazettE. It’s painful to choose as my favorite, but I really do love it.
And now, my questions:
1.) How was your day?
2.) What’s something you’re looking forward to?
3.) If you could be anyone for a day, real or fictional, who would you want to be?
4.) If you were a color, what color would you be?
5.) If you were a musical instrument, what musical instrument would you be?
6.) What was the sexiest dream you can remember having?
