/ANGRILY BREAKS A HOLE THROUGH THE DOOR KNOCK KNOCK INDULGE ME IN MATCHMAKER LIAISON HEADCANONS MELLY FUCK
( Melly’s Mod Notes: y do u keep breaking my blog when u come here jen y. )
✦ A romanticist at heart thanks to being fed on a steady diet of romance novels and movies since they were a child, the liaison’s love for love itself is perhaps their greatest asset during their tenure for the Lost Light. They admire the heroines from their favourite books and try their best to emulate the characters’ best virtues while growing up, becoming resilient and hardworking, cheerful and plucky. The liaison is a hit with the majority of the crew in the short amount of time they’re on the Lost Light.
✦ Doesn’t take them long to start becoming a matchmaker. They notice a lot of the crew members on the ship are lovesick, loveshy or just plain in love. Often for someone onboard who also shares their feelings back but these robots are so ridiculously emotionally constipated it hurts. It hurts to so much to see them not be happy when they could be happy and they want the best for their friends. Looks like it’s time for them to roll up their sleeves and get to work.
✦ Their matchmaking career is a smashing success thanks to their dogged determination and sensible plans + advice that they suggest but never pressure. They’ve managed to get several couples together, save a failing relationship from a mistake born from a silly misunderstanding, and even helped navigate a tricky Amica Endura to a happy Conjunx Endura. Pipes is an ongoing case of theirs, a tricky one too. He has very specific tastes for what he wants in his partner but he’s sweet and earnest and has a good heart. They’ll find a love interest for him in no time. (Though how the liaison doesn’t notice the way Pipes stares at them longingly while they hang out at Swerve’s is anyone’s guess.)
✦ They’re also an excellent couple’s therapist! They’re willing to listen to hours and hours of a ‘bot complaining about a partner to learn the heart of the problem before they speak up, seemingly always having the solution for the woes at hands. The fact they never judge the ‘bot or tell others what they’ve heard from these conversations makes them a popular option for a troubled partner to turn to if they don’t want their love woes to be the latest gossip at Swerve’s. Many a times they’ve been approached by Chromedome or Rewind or both at once to discuss issues they’re having with their Conjunx. Emphasis on many times, to the point they’ve more or less pencilled the arrival of one or both coming by their offices any day of the week to ensure they have time for them. Rung won’t say anything - it’ll be terribly rude to make comments on another person’s works - but he’s grateful he gets some respite from the drama.
✦ When they learn about the situation regarding Cyclonus and Tailgate, how they’ve been dancing around the topic of being in love with the other for a while, of course they decided to take it up. Those two are one of their dearest friends and if any couple deserves to be happy it’s those two. For some reason the others ranging from Rung to Chromedome look at them with pity when they mention their plans to help the two out? No one tells them to not intervene or stop. Just ominous well-wishes and good lucks said with grim finality. What’s that all about? Oh well it can’t be worse than that time they were helping Tiffany and Charlotte get back together. The liaison is confident that their friends will be a cute couple by the end of the work week.
✦ Months pass and the liaison is trying not to have a breakdown over what has to be their toughest case yet. How can they be so obtuse to the others feelings…? How can they miss so many chances to confess their feelings? How can this go on for so long with no progress being made?? The liaison has tried everything at their disposal: Gentle probing, sweet encouragement. Hell they’ve stooped low enough to start engineering social events and incidents where they have no choice but to admit their undying love for the other. Nothing. Nada. Zip. They find their feelings of frustrations shared with Whirl of all the ‘bots on the ship. He’s the number one shipper for the two and he wants them to be canon dammit.
✦ At this point Whirl and the liaison join forces as they’re both at their wits’ end with these two. Shoving them in an empty room and locking the door maybe considered trite and cliche but the liaison is getting desperate at this point. If this doesn’t work then Plan ‘Make the Two Think the Other Died a Horrible Death, Redux’ is going to be a go.
