Shipping Meme: Edgar Eicheln/Rachel Caustello

  • Who cooks: Andrew and Argine. Yeah but no but that’s the way it is. If push comes to shove, Edgar usually cooks; when they’re both grown up (in the universes they stay together), Rachel generally gets to the point of being allowed to cook without Edgar staring nervously at the stove while pretending to do work.
  • Who does the laundry and other chores: Whichever of them has more free time for it that week. Even when they’re young, she’s training 90% of every day and he’s looking after the little Eichelns half the time.
  • How many children do they have: … ;   ; …okay I think usually 1-2. Even in King of Spades, I’m pretty certain she’ll technically become Eileen’s stepmom at some point.
  • Who’s more dominant: They would both say themselves. They would both admit only to Andrew or Argine that they have no idea in hell. It’s part of what keeps them together, how evenly stubborn they are and well-matched for getting through things.
  • Favorite nonsexual activity:  Sitting by the lake. They’re both very fiery people, and sitting by the lake gets both of their hearts beating more slowly. It’s important to stop and breathe together sometimes.
  • Their favorite place to be together: …the lake they go sit by. /o/
  • Any traditions: Even when they’re grown-up folk, every boring fancy party they attend together involves at least one game of “hide the spoon/wine flute/napkin ring.” It’s important.
  • Their “song”: So, like Drea, I have approximately 10000 songs for them, but the universal song of their young lives, no matter the universe, is ’Let Her Go’ (Passenger).
  • What they do for each other on holidays: Edgar likes to spoil her with presents she doesn’t need in addition to things she’s said she actually wants. Rachel tries to aim for one or two small, meaningful gifts that will really make him smile. They both like getting each other articles of clothing–gloves, hats, scarves, pins–because it’s so lovely to look up and see the person you love marked by something you bought them.
  • Where did they go for their honeymoon: … ;              ; …but probably somewhere in Europe. Germany for sure, likely France as well.
  • Where did they first meet: When Andrew was like “look best fran I has a tiny bb cousin who is actually people now” and Edgar was like “…this is a tiny baby child” and Rachel was like “THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK” and then they were all friends and it was good.
  • Any pets: Eh. I don’t think so, actually.
  • What do they fight over: Everything. Basically everything. They only fight seriously about her safety and his ambition.
  • Do they go on vacations, if so where:  Wherever they damn please. B|

  • How the pairing would work if they were enemies (or if already enemies, friends/companions). …like Ladies and Gentlemen the King of Spades? Yes. Like that. Is how it would go if they were enemies.
  • Their favorite meal time together. When one makes dinner for the other because the other is working way too late and needs to have a food. It goes both ways.
  • Which of their friends (or foes) is the most annoying third wheel. Elliot because of sexual tension in three directions YOU HEARD ME IN THREE DIRECTIONS WHY WOULD YOU NOT JUST ARTHUR/GUIN/LANCE THE SHIT OUT OF LIFE YOU CRAZY FOOLS. o9
  • A time someone walked in on them making out. Apparently Andrew. Apparently shirts were off. Apparently he’ll never get over it. 
  • A time someone walked in on them being embarrassingly cute. I don’t know that either of them were ever embarrassed by cuteness. They liked being a cute couple. They made a sport of being a cute couple to see if they could make Andrew and Argine roll their eyes.
  • Their perfect date-night. Movie night with or without their other two. \o/
  • A Dark Fic Scenario. He’s actually written a beautiful apology and a hope that they can really reconcile before he leaves the last time. She’s racing after him to tell him she accepts the apology. We both know how this ends.
