Since the Angara are pretty open in terms of emotions I can imagine how perplexed they would be over how humans would use flowers to convey hidden meanings to their lovers/family/enemies.
Jaal would ask who decided what meant what, when it started, and why ‘tip toe’ around your affections for another? He’d spend an eternity figuring out the various kinds of flowers and their meanings, somehow roping Vetra into snagging a few flowers brought over from the milky way. Secretly whenever Ryder has an awful stressful day and she walks into her room- tons of flowers nestled neatly into little vases (blame Lexi who thought it best if they were in vases to keep them alive a little longer) all over her desk and nightstand. Some are known to her. Red roses: passionate love, Asters: contentment, Yellow Tulips: Hopelessly in love.
And then there are the odd ones. Flowers and plants unknown to even humans. Vivid in color and alien in nature similar to the Angara. When she sees Jaal next she asks him about the strange flowers in her room. Warmly Jaal is all too eager to tell her about them, about how each one represents a deeper part of oneself- each petal signaling a year of one’s life in motion. The pain, the hope, the devotion, the courage, youth, stubbornness, and pure joy she brings to him. He then explains to her his people don’t have meanings for each flower like humans do but those flowers- vivid blues and pale white, those called to him and in turn reminded him of her. And the longer he looked at each petal, each speckle and vein running through them, he could see everything he loved about her in them.

answer the following for your museso people know how shipping works on your blog.
REPOST. don’t reblog.
WHAT’S YOUR OTP FOR YOUR MUSE?: I’ve been told unless I say Hasebe/Akako I will be shunned.
WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO RP WHEN IT COMES TO SHIPPING?: I enjoy writing angst, and Akako being painfully oblivious towards romantic affections. I’m pretty open to AU specific ships as long as there’s some sort of chemistry between and a reason why a relationship needs to happen. Personally, I tend to be more distant with ships? Or more like I don’t feel like I have much of a need to have a ship for everything.
HOW LARGE DOES THE AGE GAP HAVE TO BE TO MAKE IT UNCOMFORTABLE?: As long as both are adults, and have a mutual feeling I’m fine with it.
ARE YOU SELECTIVE WHEN SHIPPING?: Yes. Usually I have to know the mun pretty well for me to be comfortable talking about shipping/romantic intentions. I try not to jump into shipping because I prefer platonic>romantic usually.
HOW FAR DO STEAMY MOMENTS HAVE TO GO BEFORE THEY’RE CONSIDERED NS.FW?: Kissing because I’m a child. Or if the clothes are off good-bye
WHO ARE OTHER MUSES YOU SHIP YOUR MUSE WITH?: There’s Hasebe/Akako. That’s about it.
DOES ONE HAVE TO ASK TO SHIP WITH YOU?: Probably as I said before, I usually only ship if I’m comfortable with the other mun. If Akako or Jiji however did develop feelings for another muse I’m more open with it.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU LIKE TO SHIP?: I enjoy deep relationships that aren’t necessarily romantic. I do like talking headcanons with others and seeing how a relationship between two muses can develop, and how their character will develop due to this interaction.
ARE YOU MULTISHIP?: Yep.
ARE YOU SHIP OBSESSED OR SHIP MORE-OR-LESS?: Less in terms of romance. Other than that, I may come off as kind of neutral but I do like talking about relationships.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SHIP IN YOUR CURRENT FANDOM?: I’ve been told unless I say Hasebe/Akako I will be shunned. But I do ship them.
FINALLY, HOW DOES ONE SHIP WITH YOU?: Send lots of memes, interact, or burst in and say hey can we have a pre-established relationship.
DISCLAIMER: I’m so sorry Akako is dense, and Jiji is passive.
