percy and keyleth holed up in the library of whitestone castle going through any books they can find on plants and their meanings, trying to come up with bouquets that would best convey their feelings to vex and pike. the subject is something they both find a common interest in (percy has always appreciated languages and the fact that mixing plants together can send messages is absolutely fascinating to him; keyleth loves plants so the idea of being able to fully express her often jumbled emotions through something she loves is really cool to her) and they put in so much time and effort thinking up the perfect meaningful bouquets for their s/o and then hunting down all the necessary components?
pike and vex aren’t particularly interested in the subject (although i’m sure keyleth and percy both rattle off the meanings of every part) but they’re genuinely touched and find all the effort they put into it incredibly endearing.
vex doesn’t bother hiding her sly smile as percy fumbles over the flowers with more serious romantic meanings, pointing out how red his ears are as he tries to backtrack to the more lighthearted flowers. he tries his best to keep his bouquet very neat and color-coordinated.
keyleth is red in the face the entire time she lists off meanings, pausing every couple of seconds to try and read pike’s reaction to it all. admittedly, pike becomes a bit lost after the tenth flower (keyleth may have gone a little bit overboard) but she knows something pretty when she sees it. keyleth’s bouquet is very bright and pulls from the majority of the color spectrum. from anybody else the bouquet may have seemed messy and obnoxious but from keyleth it seems lovely and incredibly sincere.
