“We’re married now,” Kuroko said.
Aomine spat out his drink.
His spluttering caught the attention of the rest of the Generation of Miracles, who came over to see what was going on.
Patiently, Kuroko repeated over the sounds of Aomine choking to death on the floor, “Kagami-kun and I are married now.”
“What. How.”
Kuroko peered at Akashi in vague concern. “Well, when two people love each other very much, sometimes one of them would purchase some jewellery, and then go down on one knee –”

“Why weren’t we invited to the wedding?” wailed Kise.
“Why would anyone invite you?” everyone still coherent asked simultaneously.
Kise joined Aomine on the floor.

Murasakibara contemplated the situation for a moment, and then fished out an unopened bag of sweets from his bag and presented it to Kuroko with the solemnity of an offering. “Congratulations.”
“Thank you, Murasakibara-kun.” Kuroko glanced down the packet of Choco Babies with mild interest. “But I don’t think either Kagami-kun or myself can get pregnant.”
Murasakibara gave this pronouncement the grave consideration it deserved, and then held out a packet of Kiss Mints instead for a trade.

“Ne, Midorima,” Aomine began after the impromptu basketball match, towelling himself dry.
“No,” Midorima replied without looking up from re-taping his fingers carefully. “I am not flying to America to marry you.”

Weekend Challenge - Dialog Prompts

Hello my lovelies!

I'm your hostess for the weekend challenge. And we're going to use dialog as prompts. Writing dialog is one of my favorite things so I'm hoping this will bring about bunches of words and bunches of graphics!

I have five categories with twelve dialog prompts each. Your job is to request as many prompts as you'd like from the following categories. Give me a number (or more than one) from 1 - 12 for these:

vacations/holidays
hurt/comfort
schmoop/love
kink
graphics

Let me know if you have any questions about the way this challenge works!

Go forth and create. (Oh, and don't forget it's still Pool Party Month! The dialog prompts may give you ideas for creations in new and exciting fandoms!!)
