Violet (thinking): Something still feels off about this situation, and I can’t put my finger on what. Maybe I should ask Rowan for advice? He’s got way more experience with this kind of weird.

Or maybe it’s none of my business, and I should drop it. Hopefully Rowan will have a problem of his own to distract me — the kind of problem I actually understand how to fix.

Rowan: Violet!

You know that romance trope, where a character starts getting hot for random mundane physical features of their love interest, even if it wasn’t something they were into before?

Violet: Yeah?

Rowan: It’s REAL!

Violet (thinking): We make such a good team.

Oh no you don’t Violet, there’s no skating out of this.

I mean…it is none of her business. No doubt it’ll still come out eventually in either a hilarious or horribly embarrassing fashion, but it really doesn’t seem like something the team has to know.

“starts getting hot for random mundane physical features of their love interest, even if it wasn’t something they were into before?”
I thought of it as double standards.
If a co worker is so tired that they are not getting any work done and just zoning out- I would feel contempt.
If it’s someone I love then the slow blink sleepy face is adorable. (cats included)
I saw the trope, thought it was true- but just interpreted it differently.

Mom told me that her boyfriend read their pet chickens to sleep. I don’t love my mom’s boyfriend- so I thought it was childish and stupid. But if it was my little brother, then it’s compassionate and adorable.

It’s not quite the same as double standards. I can confirm, as this only happened to me street I fell in love with my fiance. He was pretty okay looking to me, slightly above average. We were friends before, and back then, I’d probably never describe him as “hot”.

But now, I’m attracted to every single part of him. His face, his body, his eyes, his hair. Even though they’re still just as slightly above average. I tell him how handsome he is all the time, and I’m not lying. But it’s like being in love added a “sexy” filter over him.
