I do love this meme. Oh goodness, I have to give you Jo/Camille, don't I? <3
Kait: jo/camillelickmadwomanpoems on December 7th, 2011 03:40 pm (UTC)
who is the big spoon/little spoon:
Camille. Okay, this is a confession about how my spooning policy is generally based on whomever is the larger human being being on the outside of the spoon. However, this is clearly different. Mostly, I just think that physical affection took Jo a while, so, particularly in the friendship phase of their relationship, it was Camille doing the holding and Jo being held. And even though that sort of changed as Jo became more comfortable with physical touch and Camille's body, bigspoon!Camille is still the comforting thing for them.

what is their favorite non-sexual activity:
This question is really bizarre to me for some reason... I think, more than anything else that I ship, that Jo and Camille just prefer to do things when they are together. But, partially do to a product of Jo's upbringing, and the fact that for a long time, they didn't do anything particularly "couple-y" outside of home, they are sort of homebodies because that's where they are most comfortable. Like, they like doing homey type things together like folding laundry and talking about the day and dancing around the kitchen making dinner and reading to each other. But as for going out, I obviously think that there is a joint love for art and acting there, so they are big movie people. which, I guess, with the darkness of movies, it was also a pretty typical first date because it was anonymous and quiet. But regardless of that, that's just something they both enjoy. I guess it's back to the beginning: if they both enjoy it, they'd just rather be together doing it. If neither loves it, then they'd definitely prefer to be together. They also really do road trips.

who uses all the hot water in the morning:
Camille. Definitely Camille. Jo is often infinitely frustrated by the sheer amount of time it takes Camille to get ready in the morning. However, Jo is the night time bath person.

what they order from take out:
anything, everything, anything that Jo can't figure out how to cook, always curry, because one time Camille made it and Jo still can't feel half of her tongue. there is a lot of Thai and Indian and sushi and Chinese being ordered though.

what is the most trivial thing they fight over:
Camille does not pick up after herself. Nothing in their house is inherently dirty or anything, and Camille is good about vacuuming and doing dishes, but she always leaves stuff out. Particularly when she gets more invested in art. There are always projects laying around, and if Jo could figure out how much paint she has scrubbed off of the floor, she would.

who does most of the cleaning:
Camille does the cleaning-cleaning. Jo picks up the house. They do the laundry together.

what has a season pass in their DVR:
mostly, they watch movies together, because that's what they enjoy more and that's more what their schedules allow. they're much more likely to have big chunks of time where they don't do anything, rather than a little bit of time each night. But they do make time for The Daily Show, Modern Family, and Psych.
Kait: jo/camillelickmadwomanpoems on December 7th, 2011 03:42 pm (UTC)

who controls the netflix queue:
Oh Camille, definitely. She's good about picking things for Jo and letting Jo have a say, but she's definitely in charge of it.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Jo. The older they get, the more Jo appoints herself the one that's in charge of talking to other people. Because, in her opinion, Camille get's more beautifully weird every year they are together. And not everyone appreciates it like she does.

who steals the blankets:
There is usually a tug of war match between them in the night. Eventually the blanket usually ends up on the floor and they end up cuddled together to stay warm.

who leaves their stuff around:
I am really horrible at answering these questions accidentally early. To needlessly repeat: Camille.

who remembers to buy the milk:
Jo remembers it if she used the last. Camille remembers if Jo said something about it being gone. Jo remembers what she needs, Camille pretty much only remembers what Jo needs. Camille is generally not allowed to do the grocery shopping though, because she has been bared from cooking by herself since the curry incident. Also, because she brings home ridiculous things that Jo can't figure out what to do with, like star fruit and jicama and basically nothing to actually eat.

who remembers anniversaries:
Jo. Camille remembers them because she should, but Camille doesn't need a count off. She doesn't need the time ticked by with days and months. But Jo does. Jo loves anniversaries.

Because your fic, and because I'm listening to The National and having bittersweet Feelings, and because I feel like making you have them too - Camille/Lucy? ♥
Kait: katelyn and erin are handsymadwomanpoems on December 7th, 2011 04:04 pm (UTC)
who is the big spoon/little spoon:
Lucy is the big spoon. I think Lucy is sort of... trying to undo some of the things that happened between Jo and Camille. That sounds bad... I think she's trying to fix the things in Camille that broke when she was with Jo. Because things broke and she was Not Okay when Lucy came around. And I think Lucy just wants to sort of make that okay.

what is their favorite non-sexual activity:
They go out. They go dancing, they go to bars, they see concerts, they go to festivals and protests. They like to show each other off a little bit. They like to do Big Important Memorable Things. They definitely live to have fun. They're probably going to spend Friday and Saturday night out, rather than stay in and have a nice dinner. There are so many contrasts to Jo/Camille and Lucy/Camille that it is ridiculous. Like, both work very well for Camille. Both of them are things that Camille wants. Though, I don't know if I can ship Lucy/Camille as complete end game? Even if I ship it domestically and as a real relationship, I don't think it's ever going to be the end game for me that Jo/Camille could be after a while-- after they both grow up.

who uses all the hot water in the morning:
Camille. But sometimes Lucy decides that she has had it and gets in the shower with her. This clearly made Camille work harder to get out of the shower more quickly. *sarcasm face*

what they order from take out:
They are definitely more likely to go to a restaurant than do takeout. I know that isn't an answer, but that's just what it is. They'll eat anything, but they're more likely to go out to eat or go to eat with friends than to stay in and order. Or make anything. That just doesn't happen.

what is the most trivial thing they fight over:
Lucy and Camille fight about a lot of trivial things. A lot of them. Because they are really good about not fighting about the big things. So the little things sometimes blow up.

who does most of the cleaning:
Camille. Lucy doesn't really clean. They sort of live in organized chaos because no none is picking anything up and throwing it out so there are stacks of magazines and cds and pictures everywhere and clothes are as likely to be on the floor as in the closet.

what has a season pass in their DVR:
trashy reality tv, 80's tv, travel shows, Raising Hope, more trashy reality tv, Pan Am, VH1 specials, Parks and Rec, Community, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, anything Camille is in. Lucy watches (and saves) a lot of TV, okay?

who controls the netflix queue:
Camille. Lucy watches TV but she doesn't have a huge attention span, so she doesn't watch many movies. But Camille will gobble them up if she isn't doing anything and Lucy is traveling or something.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Camille. Lucy sometimes... has a bad reaction to the landlord. And then the heat doesn't come on for quite some time.

who steals the blankets:
Camille. Lucy is really hot blooded. So she doesn't really mind.

who leaves their stuff around:
Both of them. Their house sort of has junk landminds. And, also, it is not physically possible to find something if you don't know where it is.

who remembers to buy the milk:
Lucy. Lucy loves milk. Lucy has great teeth.

who remembers anniversaries:
Lucy. Camille really isn't big on anniversaries. And Lucy sort of is. She enjoys the spectacle of them.

James/Carlos!

James/Carlos (showverse)
I'm assuming that you wanted showverse. If you wanted RPF, just tell me. I can do that too.

who is the big spoon/little spoon:
James. There is just too much of a size difference to get around for me on this one. James has to be the big spoon.

what is their favorite non-sexual activity:
physical stuff. hockey, wrestling, running, swimming, jumping, dancing. also, video games, singing, and well, they're a little codependent. So anything. Everything.

who uses all the hot water in the morning:
James. Absolutely James. Carlos does not understand the joy of a long hot shower.

what they order from take out:
James is sort of picky. And Carlos hates sushi. So, really the only thing that they can agree on is sandwiches. They eat a lot of sandwiches.

what is the most trivial thing they fight over:
hmmm... I think there is a lot of how much time James takes in the bathroom each morning. Because, there is a difference between Carlos not needing much time in the bathroom and Carlos not needing to shave and brush his teeth. Also, Carlos shaving is a frequent argument. Carlos is sometimes anti-shaving and James is team no-stubble.

who does most of the cleaning:
James. Carlos really just... He's Carlos and he doesn't.

what has a season pass in their DVR:
Mythbusters, Phineas and Ferb, Spongebob, The Walking Dead, Modern Family, Bones, Pawn Stars, hockey games

who controls the netflix queue:
Hmm. Good question. James probably? Because Carlos has a tendency to not read the titles and gets ridiculous things sent to their house. Like Teeth. Yeah. And that doesn't go well.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
James. Because Carlos is probably the one that broke it to begin with.

who steals the blankets:
James.

who leaves their stuff around:
James. Carlos is the youngest from a big family. So, you know, you leave your stuff out, and your stuff is either broken or someone else's stuff.

who remembers to buy the milk:
Carlos. Carlos is a thoughtful little person. But alternatively, they go to the store together, because James does not trust Carlos to go alone. Because sometimes they need vegetables.

who remembers anniversaries:
anniversaries are a big deal to them both. like, they make a big deal of them and do big, proper date nights and make everyone else celebrate.

Re: James/Carlos (showverse)
YAYYYY. I love thiss. <3 It's just just soo domestic, and I can imagine everything perfectly, and of course Carlos is thoughtful and picks up after himself, as compensation for his habitual breaking of everything and general clutteryness.

I can't stop reading this, and I wish I could hug this meme, and I love you for writing this. I'M HUGGING
MY COMPUTER SCREEN RIGHT NOW.

And sure! I was wanting showverse, but if you don't mind whipping out RPS James/Carlos, then ::hugggg::
