The rules are simple:
I have to bring a muse/character to an (Anti-) Valentine's Day party. It can be the same one as before (last year), but it doesn't have to be.
And then we have to answer the following questions:
2. Which one of you is the more romantic person?
3. What gift are you giving to your (anti) Valentine?
4. Are you guys wearing red or pink (or black...)?
5. Did you bring any Valentine's Day treats?
6. Name a song for our Love Playlist or Anti-Love Playlist (or both)!
7. Got a great anti/Valentine party game?
8. Feeling the love or just feeling nauseous? How will you have fun at the party?
9. Has your muse been a good Valentine?

So those are the rules, but I'm going to make the thing my own a bit.
Misha: *Pacing as she waits. A little nervous because she arranged with Nick at the last possible moment.*
Nick: *Stops his car next to her and gets out, running his hand through his slightly disheveled blond hair.* Sorry I'm late. Had to get these... *Ducks in and pulls out a bouquet of roses.*
Misha: *Grins and takes them.* Thanks so much for stepping up.
Nick: No problem. You owe me a packet of-
Misha: *Takes a box of Cuban Cigars out of her purse.*
Nick: I love you.
Misha: *laughs as she hands it over.* Hey! You put on red. Didn't think you would.
Nick: *Glances at his shirt* Yeah... not a fan of the color, but hey, I'm supposed to be above politics. *Looks her over, his blue eyes dancing with mirth.* Darrion will kick himself if he finds out you wore a pink dress.
Misha: Yep. And it's unlikely that anyone will see me in it again. Being Valentines and all. Usually I just avoid these things.
Nick: So what's his problem anyway?
Misha: Oh, you know. The usual "You should be prioritizing my story"... thing.
Nick: Ah. Shall we? *Guides her around the car and opens the door for her.*
Misha: *Little smile at the old-world chivalry. Settles in while he gets behind the wheel.* Who do you think is more romantic between the two of us?
Nick: *Driving them to the party* You.
Misha: No... I think it's you.
Nick: Misha. You're the one who writes romances.
Misha: And you're the one who've been in love with one woman for about 500 years.
Nick: *scowls* Not the same.
Nick: Nothing romantic about that. Trust me.
Misha: Okay... *Sensing that this probably isn't the best topic to continue on.* We're supposed to pick a Valentines Day game.
Nick: Spin the bottle.
Misha: *Laughs!* No. Too awkward.
Nick: *Sing-song voice* I brought vodka...
Misha: Yum. But... no. *Can just imagine the party sinking into chaos thanks to vodka and spin the bottle.*
Nick: We'll leave it as an option.
Misha: *Laughs and just shakes her head.* Okay... You dance, right?
Nick: *Snorts* Better than most mortals. Got plenty of practice.
Misha: You got a song for us to dance on?
Nick: Nah you decide. Pick a song you write those romance scenes to.
Misha: Okay... Flightless Bird, American Mouth. It makes me think of you.
Nick: *Long-suffering sigh* What are you bringing to the party?
Misha: You brought the ingredients I asked for?
Nick: Yep. In the back.
Misha: We're going a bit early so I can make us chocolate fondants. Nothing more Valentine's Day than that.
Nick: *grins* Sexy.
Misha: *gives his head a playful shove.* Stop.
Nick: But it's true! Trust me, when you spend most of your life hungry, watching someone cook is amazing.
Misha: *chortles* You better behave.
Nick: *rolls his eyes* Of course. I'll be the best behaved Valentine you've ever had.
Oh dear. Somehow, I'm not feeling all that reassured. Think he'll be a good Valentine or will all the romance bring out the little devil in him?
