“Chowder, my son: we’re gonna get you hammered, you fuckin’ beaut.”
“I don’t know if that’s the best idea,” Bitty says dubiously, looking at the back of Chowder’s dejected head.
“Bits, it’s Haus tradition!” Shitty exclaims, warming to his subject. He’s probably about five seconds from striking a Captain Morgan pose with his foot on a chair. “It’s got to be done!”
“Okay,” Chowder says, unexpectedly. He bolts upright. There is a gigantic red mark on his forehead from the table. “Yeah, okay! Let’s get hammered!!”
Ransom/Holster - Check PleaseProper Date Manners (6971 words) by sunshineinthestorm Chapters: 1/1 Fandom: Check Please! (Webcomic) Rating: Teen And Up Audiences Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply Relationships: Adam “Holster” Birkholtz/Justin “Ransom” Oluransi Characters: Adam “Holster” Birkholtz, Justin “Ransom” Oluransi, Original Female Character(s) Additional Tags: the OFCs are dating each other, because female/female relationships are the only thing omgcp lacks, Fluff, Mutual Pining, Adam doesn’t realize it’s mutual pining until the end though, Because that’s how these things work, Fake/Pretend Relationship, plus sushi and ice cream and jane austen, honestly what more could you want Summary:
It wasn’t the way Holster had envisioned finally getting a date with his d-man partner.
(Not that he’d ever envisioned getting a date with his d-man partner, because what they had was fucking good enough already, and it wasn’t like romantic relationships were any better or worse than platonic ones, or any more important, and he was happy with Ransom as his best friend, he really was, and he didn’t need anything else.)
It wasn’t the way Holster had envisioned finally getting a date with his d-man partner, but it was fun anyway.
While trying to be a good bro and help his best friend get over his recent breakup with March, Holster accidentally sets them up on a double date with two girls who are already dating… each other.
When Ransom meets Adam Birkholtz for the first time he’s wearing a t-shirt that’s half a size too small for him, jeans that are worn out in the ratty way, and Birkenstocks that look about a thousand years old. His glasses are crooked on his nose and he introduces himself with a loud, booming laugh even though Ransom hasn’t said anything particularly funny. Ransom thinks it’s the kind of laugh that moves mountains, full and round and beautiful.
“Everyone calls me Holster,” Adam says, squeezing Ransom’s hand before he lets it go.
“Cool,” Ransom’s smile back is a reflex, the easiest, most natural response to Holster’s toothy grin. “I’m Ransom.”
“Sick nickname,” Holster tosses an arm around Ransom’s shoulder’s without warning. He is very large and very warm, and his breath smells like cinnamon. “You know what, Ransom? I think we’re gonna be tight.”
Ransom laughs, it rises up in him fast and urgent, like excess happiness spilling from his lips, “sure, bro. Whatever you say.”

“So tell me,” Justin’s mother says, all business, “is your boy going to propose?”
“What, Jack?” Justin says, and doesn’t really think much of it, because his mother eats up the details of Jack and Bitty and JackandBitty like Holster eats up rom-coms.
His mother sighs, and he can practically hear her rolling her eyes. “No, baby, I meant Adam.”

“How about this,” Grantaire told Combeferre. “You have to give Courfeyrac a gift for every day of the Twelve Days of Christmas. December twenty-fifth till January fifth. And when he figures out that it’s you, which he inevitably will, you lose the bet and you have to ask him out.”
Combeferre bit his lip, eyes narrowed as he thought the proposal through. “On one condition,” he said after a moment.
“You do the same.” Combeferre and Grantaire enter a bet. Even though it lasts only twelve days, the consequences are far greater than they could ever have expected.
Throws a big surprise birthday party for you at the café underneath the ADA
building—but he’s sneaky as hell about it. He’ll take you out for an entire day
a few days before your actual birthday and makes up some reason why he can’t
celebrate with you on the actual day.
During the “pre-birthday” date he’ll start the day off by ordering you your
favorite foods for breakfast (even if they aren’t proper breakfast foods) like
you wake up in a sea of food all over your kitchen table.
Fills your house with balloons and a giant banner he made himself. He’ll
snuggle you awake, pepper you with kisses, and then pop one of those giant
things that shoots confetti everywhere so it gets all over your bed.
Recites a very cheesy poem about all the reasons he loves you and why this day
should be a national holiday. Literally makes that Captain Morgan pose with one
knee on the bed and his hand to his chest as he recites this.
After you’re full from breakfast he gives you one of a variety of presents
after you’re showered and dressed. It’s something small and silly like a tiny
plush of your favorite animal or a keychain he knows you’d like.
If the weather is nice he’d take you to the ferris wheel that overlooks the
city and get some sweet cuddling time looking over the water. Secretly he convinces
the operator to stop the ride for a bit so you both can linger up high. If you
get nervous he wraps his arms tightly around you and swears he’ll protect you.
He’ll take you to do some of your favorite activities afterwards and then to a
nice lunch in the park.
The evening ends with him ordering take-out from the place of your choosing and
popping in a movie. Then he starts inhaling the helium from the balloons and
recites the lines from the movie just to make you laugh.
He’ll pull you into his lap and wrap the blanket around both of you to make a
snuggly little cave. He offers to massage your shoulders and neck which is his
ploy to get you interested in other
On your actual birthday he wakes you
up with very sweet, soft, and romantic sex. The kind that makes your entire body
tingle and sweat drip down the back of your neck.
He then makes up some fake case and rushes you over to the agency as soon as
The entire office is filled with streamers, twinkle lights, balloons, a second
banner (coughleslieknope) and a tiny stack of presents.
After the party gets going he pulls you aside and hands you a little box
wrapped in simple white paper. Inside is the first picture ever taken of the
two of you in a frame with the date inscribed and your initials together on
top. On the back is a few lines hand written by Dazai himself about how much
you mean to him, and how meeting you was the start of his true happiness.
Sets seven reminders on his phone because he is terrible with dates.
Really really wants to ask Mori for the day off but he doesn’t exactly want to
tell him the reason why. It doesn’t bother him that people know you’re together
but he wants the day to be a private affair for the two of you, so he makes
plans around his work schedule. ∟Will literally slaughter an entire
enemy faction rapidly so he has the night free for you that’s true dedication.
Dresses in a very nice suit and one of the ties you’d picked out for him when
he needed it for some Mafia function a few months ago.
He wants the night to be special and elegant because he’s got the option now
and damn it he’ll spend a ridiculous amount of money because you deserve it.
Has a very extravagant car and driver waiting downstairs as a surprise. Blushes
like hell but he opens the door for you like a gentlemen.
There’s a bouquet of blood red roses (emo aesthetic for life) waiting on the
seat for you. He mumbles happy birthday while giving you a quick kiss on the
cheek after you’ve got the roses in your hands.
It took him awhile but he found a very small and intimate restaurant under
mafia protection with a private back room.
He acts like it came with the décor but really he spent a good thirty minutes
setting candles up and making sure the lighting was perfect. He made the menu
choices and asked Chuuya what wine went best with the food.
For the first time Akutagawa is very willing to discuss his future with you.
Not because he wasn’t interested before it just took him awhile to realize how
strong and deep his feelings really were. It was only after Gin pointed out all
the trouble he was going through to make this night special did he realize he’d
fallen very deeply in love—something he never thought would happen.
Afterwards he’d drape his coat around you and suggest going for a walk in the
city. He mumbles about not knowing what to get you so he asks if you’d like to
pick something out. ∟You can’t say no to him like he
glares at you until you comply and pick out what you want.
The evening ends pretty early mainly because he just wants to get you home so
he can get you in bed.
He even takes a bubble bath with you afterwards, but that usually ends up
leading to round to because Akutagawa has very little self-restraint ヽ(♡‿♡)ノ
