    Summary

    “No, but listen to me. Why should we combine when we could just…date each other?”

    Steve frowned, a puzzled expression on his face. “Robs, you don’t like dudes.”

    Robin scoffed. “Yeah, no shit, but they—“ she said, gesturing to the parking lot in hopes of getting her point across of symbolizing the outside world. “—don’t know that. My family doesn’t know that. Why don’t we pretend to date each other? I’ll get my mom off my back about not having a boyfriend even though she ‘had already dated three people when she was my age,’ and you’ll seem way more desirable to all these girls purely on the basis of you being in a relationship. Win-win.”


    Or: after deciding to fake-date to appease Robin's family and help Steve get dates, only to find their original plan had made Nancy and Eddie incredibly jealous, Robin and Steve decide to step up their relationship. Not, of course, without some bumps in the road along the way.

    Summary

    In the little moments and attempts to upsell Steve, Robin finds herself unfortunately falling. She swears her insistence to go with Nancy hadn't been for any reason besides not being able to drive, but that was honestly coming into question. Weighting the chances against the logic, things didn't go well in her calculations.
    Meanwhile, Nancy is beginning to question her previous assumptions.

    Summary

    Robin isn’t hers, but they have something going. Something undefined but that exists and occupies space, both in this apartment and in the minds of the people that know them. 

    Nancy holds this truth between her tongue and her cheek, the way someone would hold the seed of a fruit they’ve found while chewing. Nancy holds this truth and twists it around her tongue, around her mouth, and never swallows it. One day it’ll have to come out. One day, but not today. 

    or: Nancy has always been a little in love with Robin, and Robin has always been a little in love with Nancy. Being friends with benefits is easy, until it isn’t.
