    This takes place after Aleyn's been back a few weeks, and has been seeing Vedran regularly during that time. Heather and I wanted to figure out where things stand between them, so after some ooc discussion, this is what we came up with... :3

    * Aleyn will come over to Vedran's apartment, as planned, bringing with him some possibly-dubious roast chicken from a spit on the street, and a bottle of wine.
    * Aleyn is still nervous about buying wine for Vedran because... Vedran actually knows stuff about good wine.
    * Vedran will drink crappy wine with you <3 Wink
    <Vedran> hey, come on in
    * Vedran smiles to see you
    * Aleyn comes in, smiling.
    <Aleyn> I hope this is okay...
    * Aleyn says, offering you the wine.
    <Vedran> For accompanying Undertow street food?
    * Vedran teases
    * Vedran takes it, closing the door after you
    <Aleyn> Yeah, you know, it's important that the wine should complement the meal.
    <Vedran> kiss?
    * Aleyn nods, and leans over to kiss you.
    <Vedran> mm
    * Aleyn has the hat on Wink
    <Vedran> thanks
    <Vedran> It's a fine wine.
    * Vedran says honestly
    <Aleyn> Well, I hope so... it was like ten times as expensive as the chicken.
    * Aleyn jokes.
    <Vedran> though the '07 is really amazing if you can find it
    * Vedran grins
    <Vedran> I'll get us some glasses
    <Vedran> (godamn it I want some fried chicken)
    <Aleyn> All right. Want me to dish up the chicken properly, or are we going to eat with our fingers like savages?
    <Vedran> mmmm... I don't object to fingers
    <Vedran> I'm pretty hungry
    <Aleyn> All right, sounds good to me.
    * Vedran says, looking back to you from the sideboard
    * Aleyn sets it down on the table and opens the box, releasing the delicious-dubious chickeny smell Wink
    <Vedran> I have some berries we can have after
    <Aleyn> oh, that sounds great.
    * Vedran brings two glasses of wine over to the coffee table and will set them down by the chicken
    * Aleyn sits down, and pulls off a drumstick to start with.
    * Vedran does likewise
    <Vedran> mmm, delicious
    * Aleyn smiles.
    <Vedran> how was your day?
    <Vedran> (brb chicken >.>)
    <Aleyn> (hee)
    <Aleyn> Pretty good. I went by the shop for a few hours in the morning, helped out a bit with filling some orders. Then I saw Lila - I've told you about Lila, right? - for a bit in the afternoon. She's doing well. And then I came here Smile
    <Vedran> (Sorry, the food talk made me realize how hungry I was @_@)
    <Aleyn> (np)
    <Vedran> Ooh, Lila, the ex girlfriend, should I be worried?
    * Vedran teases
    * Aleyn laughs.
    <Aleyn> Her husband probably still is. He never really liked me Wink
    <Aleyn> So I usually just stop in while he's at work. I'm sure that's reassuring >.>
    <Vedran> heh
    <Vedran> no doubt ;p
    <Aleyn> You've got nothing to worry about, though.
    <Vedran> I'm not really the jealous type anyway
    <Aleyn> Even if I had any interest in girls? Wink
    * Vedran admits
    * Vedran seems thoughtful, but smiles
    <Vedran> as long as they were willing to share?
    <Vedran> ...Actaully, I don't know
    <Vedran> I mean
    <Vedran> not about girls
    <Vedran> maybe jealous sin't the right word
    * Vedran frowns
    <Aleyn> Possessive?
    * Aleyn suggests.
    <Vedran> ...insecure?
    * Vedran tries, hesitantly
    * Aleyn smiles.
    <Vedran> I hadn't really thought about it before
    <Aleyn> I'm not looking for anyone else.
    * Vedran nods
    <Vedran> I know...
    <Vedran> I'm glad.
    * Aleyn cleans off that drumstick, but looks a little ... thoughtful, though.
    <Vedran> what is it?
    <Aleyn> It's interesting you said 'insecure'... I never really thought of it that way. but ...
    <Aleyn> Roth... I guess he was, in some respects. Or it was like, he was so focused on being competent and doing everything perfectly right that anything that challenged that really shook him up.
    * Vedran nods
    <Aleyn> And I didn't really realize it until ... the end, that some things bothered him so much.
    <Aleyn> So I guess I want to find out now if it bothers you...
    * Vedran sits up, listening
    <Aleyn> if I go to Sehanine's full-moon rites. I don't always make it anyway, but if I do... does it upset you?
    <Vedran> heh, no
    * Vedran smiles
    * Aleyn smiles back.
    <Vedran> I've never been
    <Aleyn> Well, you'd be welcome to join me sometime Smile
    <Vedran> but that was partly because I was afraid of running in to my mother @_@
    <Aleyn> oh, heh.
    <Vedran> I don't think I'm ready for that sort of thing yet, anyway
    <Aleyn> That's fine. If you ever decide you do want to go, I'd be happy to take you, but no worries if it's not your thing.
    <Vedran> ...I guess we'll see?
    * Aleyn nods.
    <Aleyn> He just saw it as 'sleeping around' :/
    <Vedran> oh :/
    <Vedran> I know its not the same...
    <Vedran> but he never said anything before?
    <Aleyn> He said some things, but I didn't really take it seriously I guess, in retrospect.
    <Aleyn> After ... all that, I couldn't bring myself to go back for... a long time.
    * Vedran nods
    * Aleyn admits.
    * Vedran shuffles closer and offers you his hand
    * Aleyn takes it.
    <Vedran> I know he hurt you in a lot of ways :/
    <Aleyn> I guess. At the time I was just... so in love, I could overlook a lot.
    <Vedran> ...don't let me do that to you?
    <Aleyn> I don't want to.
    <Aleyn> I'm trying not to. I'm trying hard to show you, to tell you..
    * Vedran nods, squeezing your hand
    * Aleyn turns his right wrist over, showing you the inside. Under the scars, a hint of blue-black ink is still visible, although whatever it said or depicted is obliterated.
    <Aleyn> ...we got these, each other's initials.
    <Vedran> that's pretty committed :/
    <Aleyn> It was right after he told his parents about us.
    <Aleyn> He was so happy, and so was I, that he'd taken that step.
    <Aleyn> I mean, they weren't, obviously >.>
    <Aleyn> They said it was just a phase.
    <Aleyn> So he figured he wanted to prove them wrong.
    <Vedran> right...
    * Aleyn sighs and reaches for his wine with his free hand.
    <Aleyn> I don't know. I guess they were right.
    <Vedran> I don't know if its that simple
    <Aleyn> No... I know :/
    <Vedran> or.. maybe its the 'just' that's the problem
    * Aleyn glances over at you.
    <Vedran> Whatever...whoever :p
    <Vedran> he did before and after, he did care about you, right?
    <Aleyn> I think so. It just made me second-guess a lot of things, looking back on it later.
    * Vedran nods
    <Vedran> well, what do I know about relationships >.>
    <Aleyn> Like, I remembered how at the start he didn't even want to...well, he just wanted me to give him sex, and not return it.
    <Vedran> ahh, one of those...
    <Vedran> I think guys like that are mostly just scared
    * Aleyn nods.
    <Aleyn> He was definitely scared.
    <Vedran> they don't understand why they're not turning out how everyone says they should
    <Aleyn> I mean... understandably, I guess, he had only been interested in girls before, or that's what he said anyway.
    * Vedran nods
    <Vedran> well, you are pretty sexy
    * Aleyn laughs.
    * Vedran says, flicking the brim of your hat
    <Aleyn> I was 21 and even more awkward than I am now Wink
    <Vedran> mmph
    * Aleyn grins.
    <Vedran> Gods, I'd have been all over that
    <Aleyn> Hah, you were.. what, 16?
    <Vedran> well
    <Vedran> I was very forward, shall we say
    <Vedran> when I was younger :p
    <Vedran> also I was in a foreign continent
    <Vedran> with no one to reign me in save Merlyn
    <Vedran> and that's not really his style
    <Aleyn> heh, how did that work out
    <Aleyn> ?
    <Vedran> he was more the type to just... make sure I knew what I was getting in to, and let me go
    * Aleyn nods.
    <Aleyn> He sounds like a good guy.
    <Vedran> he really is
    <Vedran> I hope Dheni and them found them
    <Aleyn> I hope so too.
    <Vedran> he probably knows half of Ahkas by now
    <Vedran> he writes me very occasionally
    <Vedran> when he's stuck in Yeshual
    * Aleyn nods, smiling.
    <Aleyn> I wouldn't have been able to handle you back then anyway, so it's better this way Wink
    * Aleyn teases
    * Vedran sighs, and shakes his head
    <Vedran> I keep saying I've never had a real relationship before, but I don't know, maybe that's not true.
    <Vedran> I don't know
    <Aleyn> oh?
    * Aleyn looks a little puzzled at the idea that you can not know if you've had a relationship.
    <Vedran> well
    <Vedran> when I was in Ahkas
    <Vedran> and.. fifteen?
    <Vedran> yeah, fifteen.
    <Vedran> see
    <Vedran> that's part of it
    <Vedran> I was so young
    <Aleyn> Gods, yeah.. at 15 I was still completely oblivious to ... mostly everything, really @_@
    <Vedran> I was... not.
    <Vedran> well
    <Vedran> there was this guy
    <Vedran> Agizul
    * Aleyn listens, sipping his wine.
    <Vedran> he was a tiefling from one of the nomadic groups
    <Vedran> and he was stuck in Yeshual basically over the winter, with some girls who were supposed to be taking care of him
    <Vedran> I ended up hanging out with them a lot
    <Vedran> and eventually things happened
    <Vedran> by which I pretty much mean as soon as I had a hint that he was interested, I seduced him
    <Aleyn> oh, things?
    * Aleyn gives a little smile at that.
    <Vedran> mm, things
    * Vedran nods, and blushed just a little
    <Vedran> he was ah... well he's older than you, anyway >.>
    <Aleyn> ...older than I am now? o_O
    <Vedran> no
    <Vedran> not that old
    <Aleyn> oh, ok.
    <Aleyn> Hey, I would hardly be one to judge.
    <Vedran> No I suppose not.... and I'd wager I had a better idea what I wanted at fifteen than you did at twenty one, too ;p
    <Aleyn> probabaly, yeah.
    <Aleyn> since I had no idea Wink
    * Vedran smiles
    <Vedran> anyway
    <Vedran> it was... probably a lot more complicated than I realized at the time
    <Vedran> and he left when it was summer
    <Vedran> he was my first though
    <Aleyn> Ah.
    <Vedran> well
    <Vedran> for a certain definition of sex
    <Vedran> (of first, rather)
    * Aleyn gives a little smile at that.
    * Vedran blushes, that way he does when he is talking about sex things
    <Aleyn> What is it with tieflings, huh?
    * Aleyn says lightly.
    * Vedran causally glances at his wine
    <Vedran> Oh gods
    <Vedran> he was huge
    <Aleyn> heh.
    <Aleyn> and the tail? Wink
    <Vedran> that too
    <Aleyn> mm.
    <Vedran> still the biggest cock I've ever...seen >.>
    * Aleyn grins.
    <Vedran> but I mean, all of him was huge
    <Aleyn> Now I'm the one who wonders if he should be jealous Wink
    * Aleyn is joking, of course.
    <Vedran> heh
    <Vedran> no I think you should be grateful Wink
    <Aleyn> mmm, fair.
    <Aleyn> but it was complicated?
    <Vedran> well
    <Vedran> cultural stuff
    <Aleyn> oh, gods... cultural baggage, misunderstandings, all that sort of thing?
    <Vedran> yeah
    <Vedran> Being gay wasn't a real option for him
    <Vedran> except the part where you do't get to choose :/
    <Aleyn> Yeah...
    * Aleyn points to his nose.
    <Aleyn> This? Shadar-kai guy. I thought it meant he wasn't interested when he hit me, but... pretty sure, looking back, and now that I know Tzesira, I was wrong :p
    <Vedran> hah
    <Vedran> yeah
    <Vedran> Man, shadar kai are intense @_@
    <Aleyn> no kidding...
    <Aleyn> It's probably for the best I misunderstood in that case, I don't know if I'd have been able to take it.
    <Vedran> I don't know Tzesira very well, but you don't have to really
    <Vedran> heh
    <Vedran> yeah
    <Vedran> maybe that was more like... a litmus test Wink
    <Aleyn> heh, maybe.
    <Vedran> if I punch this guy, can he take it? if yes - shag him
    * Vedran smirks
    * Aleyn laughs.
    <Aleyn> Probably, yeah.
    <Vedran> probably win win for him
    <Vedran> violence, or violence *and* sex!
    * Aleyn grins.
    * Vedran makes weighing things hand motions, and then sips out of his 'violence and sex' wine-glass hand
    <Aleyn> I'm going to have another piece of chicken, you want some?
    <Vedran> sure
    <Vedran> thanks
    * Aleyn pulls off some good-sized pieces and hands you one.
    <Vedran> actually I am going to scavenge the wings, since they are only good warm
    <Aleyn> Oh, sure. I don't really like the wings that much anyway.
    <Aleyn> Not enough meat on them...
    <Aleyn> my mother would tell me :p
    <Vedran> they have the best skin-to meat ratio though
    <Vedran> especially when they are crispy liek this, that's the best part Smile
    * Aleyn smiles.
    <Aleyn> You're welcome to them, then.
    <Vedran> thanks
    * Vedran will help himself
    <Aleyn> ... this is nice.. just ... being with you, like this.
    <Vedran> yeah
    <Vedran> I was looking forward to it
    <Aleyn> I'm glad.
    <Aleyn> So was I.
    <Aleyn> ...and it's nice to be able to talk to you about ... just stuff. Even the sort of painful stuff, like about Roth, it feels better when I can tell you.
    * Vedran smiles
    <Vedran> I'm much better at listening
    <Aleyn> I don't know, you're doing pretty well at talking too Smile
    <Vedran> sometimes...
    * Aleyn nods.
    <Aleyn> Sometimes is better than never.
    <Vedran> well if i couldn't ever I'd be a much shittier bard
    <Vedran> and I have no idea what other class I could manage ;p
    <Aleyn> You could just memorize other people's words and use those?
    <Aleyn> That's what bards do, right? Wink
    * Aleyn teases.
    <Vedran> heh
    <Vedran> not the good ones Wink
    * Aleyn smiles.
