[complete] Happy Birthday, Darl- ... Um, You

Postby Corwin Pips » Sun Jan 01, 2017 12:18 pm

On his birthday, Quill woke up to find Corwin making an excess of all of his favorite breakfast foods. On the counter was a card that was apparently from the future but too funny and fitting for Liz to resist it:

On the back, Corwin had simply signed his name. He wasn't gonna write down his feelings or anything. Feelings are gay. (Especially his.)

Another year. Quill didn't give a shit about getting older, but he never turned down an excuse to party and what better excuse than a birthday? He was already thinking about his plans for the evening when he smelled it -- breakfast! It wasn't unheard of for Corwin to cook, but since it was his birthday Quill was hoping there would be all his favorite stuff: bacon, fried potatoes, more bacon, pancakes, and coffee from freshly ground coffee beans. His stomach started growling immediately.

He ambled out of his room in his boxers and picked up the card on the counter, grinning as he read it.

"With you as my wingman tonight, I can't go wrong."

Corwin looked up from the skillet and grinned, gesturing toward the steaming mug of coffee on the countertop. "Damn straight!" he agreed enthusiastically. Corwin was a fantastic wingman, not least of all because he was completely nonthreatening when it came to stealing the ladies. "You think this is gonna be enough bacon? I've got more in the fridge."

He squinted at the pile of bacon, which was already more than enough bacon for any man.

"Maybe a little bit more?"

Listen, he really liked bacon.

Corwin laughed as he put a pile of finished bacon onto a plate. "It's your day," he pointed out, handing over the first round of meat. "So, where do you wanna go? We've still got the day free, right, or did something come up?" It was convenient to be roommates with the person you worked with, especially when that person was much more assertive and would make the arrangements and then just tell you about them.

"Nope, free and clear," he said, snagging a piece of bacon and then sitting down at the table, clearly expecting to be served. "I'm not sure what I want to do though... maybe apparate to Monaco and hit the casinos?"

Corwin had maybe possibly sort of intended for Quill to carry the plate of bacon over to the table for himself, but he certainly wasn't going to make a production of it. He was whipped; there was no other word for it. He started carrying the various plates of food and mugs of coffee over. "Sounds great! It's been a while since we did that. Remember last time, with the crazy lady trying to break up with the dealer while we were at the blackjack table?"

He laughed, reaching for his mug of coffee and assuming that Corwin had already put in the amount of cream and sugar that he liked (hint: a lot).

"Yeah, that was crazy! God, there is nothing worse than a clingy chick, am I right?" Not that that was Corwin's deal anymore -- or had ever been -- but Quill was a creature of habit.

Corwin was self-aware enough to know that he was the one who tended to be clingy (after all, he had properly doctored Quill's coffee for him), but he did his best to agree anyway. "Like that one girl with the tattoo on her neck who tried to get me to spy on you for her," he remarked, finishing the food transfer and sitting down at the table across from his best friend. "She actually offered me drugs for that. Did I tell you that part?"

"Dude," he laughed, digging into his breakfast. "You know what we should have done? Taken the drugs and then just fed her false information." He seemed unperturbed that a woman had been trying to spy on him.

Corwin's eyes widened as though that possibility had completely not occurred to him. Because it hadn't. The world would have chewed him up and spat him out decades earlier if it weren't for Quill.

"That's ... why don't I think of these things? I'm too nice, Quill. You need to ... harden me up, or something." And he was about to take a bite of breakfast when he remembered that Quill wanted more bacon, and he was back on his feet to go to the stove again.

He snickered.

"Harden you up."

Look, he was basically twelve.

"Oh, Merlin, not what I meant. Obviously." Good thing he had turned away, because now his face was eight hundred million shades of red. Because Quill really didn't need to know exactly how accurate that statement was.

He laughed through some bacon and coffee before settling down.

"Dude, thanks for breakfast though, this is really nice of you."

That didn't give him a warm rush of happiness all through his chest. Nope, not at all. In fact, it was just no big deal, so Corwin shrugged. "No problem. You're my best friend, and it's your birthday. We should do whatever you wanna do. So casinos ... we should get some fun drugs, too. I could go for some Nox." Corwin wanted to get fucked up, and it had been a while since he'd been willing to do so with anybody other than Quill.

"Yes, perfect, you are speaking my language." He'd been worried that Corwin dating someone (a guy, no less) was going to mess things up between them, but so far it seemed to be going fine. As long as Cor was available for stuff like this, Quill didn't begrudge him some action. "We can call Kingston and see what he can hook us up with. Uh, well, you can call him, I think I still owe him some money."

Corwin, um ... hadn't exactly told Quill about the disastrous end to his first "relationship" thing. Because he was way too embarrassed about it. But he was probably gonna have to say something eventually. He figured he could do that tonight. On drugs. When it would be easier.

He winced at the part about owing Kingston. "Oh, shit. Uh ... yeah, I think he likes me well enough? I guess? As far as I can tell. I'll hit him up." Corwin sent a quick text and finished up with the second round of bacon. He turned off the stove and brought the new plate over to the table.

Quill helped himself to more bacon.

"He likes money," he asserted. "As long as we've got some of that, he'll talk to you."

"I ... have some that I was going to use to buy a present, so I guess the drugs will be the present," Corwin replied, shrugging. "It works, right?" He sat down, set his phone by his plate, and got down to eating his breakfast. "Should be really fun. I haven't been fucked up in ages. Remember when we were sixteen and we tripped under the Quidditch seats?"

"God, yeah, how could I forget. Having shit whizzing by you while you're fucked up is ... well, it was fun at the time but nowadays I might puke." He grinned as he wolfed down his food. "Maybe I eat too much now." His grin turned to a frown. "Do you think I'm getting fat?"
