Can you tell us more about your relationship?
Husbando and I met spring 2005 and became a couple that summer. We’ve been together a loooong time… I feel old. XD *pensively strokes imaginary white beard*
The first time I met him he was doing a handstand while wearing a Darth Vader helmet.
Our first one-on-one conversation was us having a Final Fantasy debate, with him saying that using a Phoenix Down on an undead enemy was a sound strategy, while I insisted that Phoenix Downs tend to fail on undead bosses and Revive/Cure magic was much more effective.
We decided to become a couple while at an amusement park. We both still love roller coasters and crazy rides.
The first movie we saw at a movie theater together was Howl’s Moving Castle.
For our wedding we chose the song “Ashitaka and San” from Princess Mononoke for our first dance. (We REALLY love Miyazaki films)
He introduced me to my favorite genre of video games, nonlinear RPGs, with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. (My blog is named after the protagonist’s ship, the Ebon Hawk)
In video games, he favors close combat fighting while I prefer long range. When we played WoW before we had kids, he was always the tank; I was the healer. In Resident Evil co-op he’s always the shotgun guy, while I’m the sniper.
I’m generally better at videogames than he is (he’ll readily acknowledge that), with the notable exception being Super Mario Kart. I got SO CLOSE to beating him once, only to get hit RIGHT AT THE FINISH LINE, BY MY OWN GREEN SHELL I HAD SHOT TWO LAPS PRIOR. I’m STILL sore about that one. XD
We play Dungeons and Dragons with friends (old married fuddy duddies like us XD) about twice a month.
We named our dog Leeroy Jenkins, because we are meme trash. (Also, his name when we adopted him was Leroy, and he’d been put up for adoption for killing a chicken. He practically named himself.)
Anyway, there are lots more dorky, geeky facts about us, but I’ll stop here for now. XD We’ve had our ups and downs like most couples, but we’ve got a good thing going.
