:O do Tom/Hester for the domesticity meme :D (and welcome to the UK! I hope you have fun)

Thanks, anon! :D

who cooks normally?:
I don’t remember if this was ever mentioned in Green Storm, it was such a long time ago since I read it… I’d say, while they both can cook, and Hester has more experience, she’s also used to just making the bare minimum of what’s needed to survive… and certainly not to support other people + a baby. So most of the time, Tom.

how often do they fight?:
Ahaha.. ahah…ah..ha… A LOT. There are long periods of times where everything is fine though. Hester is the one most likley getting angry over tiny things, and emotions not being expressed (communication issues basically), but it usually passes rather quickly, since Tom doesn’t get that angry in those cases, and it’s very angry to stay angry at him when he’s not angry back. When Tom on the other hand gets angry, he will most often act very wounded/hurt/sad and it’s more difficult to deal with for both of them, and it will take longer to talk it out.

what do they do when they’re away from each other?:
read books and shoot things, respectively.

nicknames for each other?:
it’s not really their style, is it?

who is more likely to pay for dinner?:
Whoever was currently carrying the money. And I don’t think Hester would trust Tom with it.

who steals the covers at night?:
Hester. None of them are used with sharing, but she’s the one most used to just taking what she needs. Tom doesn’t really mind.
(Another part of me wants to say Tom, because he’s more used to living comfortably though…)

what would they get each other for gifts?:
Maybe.. a scarf… I’m sorry I had to
Hester really wouldn’t be good with presents though. It’s not her forte. 

who remembers things?:
Depends on what it is. Hester remembers necessary things, things needed to survive and when to fix things and so on. Tom remembers things that she would consider less important, birthdays and such.

who cusses more?:
HESTER (this is pretty much canon)

what would they do if the other one was hurt?:
No but depending on how badly, Hester would flip. There would be death and violence involved, if someone was responsible. *cough*
Tom… Would probably just take care of her and fuss a lot, not quite knowing what to do.

who kissed who first?:
I don’t actually remember, but I think it was Tom?

who made the first move?:
again it’s been too long since I read these books

who started the relationship?:
It just sort of happened. They didn’t make an agreement or anything. But I’d actually say Hester being the one that first realized it. Tom being the first one to speak about it.
