    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t have time to deal with pressure for an arranged marriage, especially since he isn’t even sure he likes women that way. (A realisation that has absolutely nothing to do with Ambassador Sokka - shut up, Suki.) Katara and Aang have broken up again, and the Northern Water Tribe are pushing for a match between the North and South.

    Which leads Zuko and Katara to develop a genius, foolproof, only slightly drunken plan: they can pretend to date for the length of Katara’s stay in the palace, giving them both a brief reprieve from political pressures on their love lives.

    What could go wrong?

    Summary

    Kaner crosses his arms behind his head. “Not even your big, bitchy mouth could take all of this,” he leers, wiggling his hips for emphasis. His giant dick bobs in mocking triumph.

    An instinctive rush of indignation leads Jonny’s perfectly normal, perfectly nice mouth into dropping open. “Fuck you, could too!” he finds himself countering, and then he freezes. Wait. Shit. “Uh,” he says weakly.

    Summary

    “This is a very awkward way to have a conversation,” Stiles says. “I really wish you would put some clothes on.”

    “Stiles,” Peter sighs, “I’m not going to contort myself into one of your t-shirts just so you can pretend you’re not lusting after my godlike body.”

    “I’m really more worried about the pants,” Stiles says, “also what the fuck, I am not lusting after your godlike body—”

    “Ah,” Peter grins, propping his head up on his hand. “So you admit the adjective is appropriate.”

    Summary

    So Noctis gets it. He doesn’t understand it, but he comprehends it. He gets that it’s context, that it’s verbal and non-verbal cues, that it’s body posture and facial expressions and eye contact.

    For example: Ignis interprets direct eye contact as an intensifier for moods and modals.

    If Noctis says, “It would be nice if someone opened the door,” without making or maintaining eye contact, Ignis seems to hear, The door being opened would be nice, but it’s not a necessity under any present circumstances.

    If Noctis says the same words, in the same tone—“It would be nice if someone opened the door”—while making or maintaining eye contact, Ignis seems to hear, The door should be opened, and opening it should be made an appropriate priority.

    ---

    For a FFXV Kink Meme prompt in which Ignis is an AI implanted into a human body, and he has been programmed to be utterly incapable of refusing an order from certain people. Noct thinks it's just him and is careful with how he phrases things around Ignis.

    Expect lots of hurt, not much comfort, and a frankly ridiculous amount of rhetorical analysis, especially around grammar. Also, Noctis and Ignis may be a little codependent.
