MEME TIME!  
Okay, so, you know that page 7, line 7, 7 lines WIP meme that's going around? Yeah, I'm skipping that entirely and jumping straight to my fave bit of my current WIP. Which to the disappointment of many, I'm sure, is currently Kyle XY, cos all my Marvel Cinematic Universe WIPs are all of 1-2 pages at the moment.

"You're beautiful when you smile. I wish you'd smile more."

"You think I'm beautiful?"

"You know I do."

"It feels good when you tell me, though."

"My mother was smiling, in the photo of her and Adam Baylin. She looked so happy. I wanted to be happy, like that. Do you think I'm only attracted to you because of Sarah and Adam? That man in the diner called them 'lovebirds'. What if... what if you only feel the way you do about me because Adam loved Sarah?"

"I don't think it works that way."

"How do you know for sure?"

"Lima beans."

"What?"

"They're a vegetable. Adam hated them--but I like them. Not as much as I like other vegetables, but still Adam wouldn’t let Foss buy them, he hated them so much."

"So you think we're like lima beans?"

"I think that, no matter what Adam felt for Sarah, that doesn't change how I feel about you."

"Nature versus nurture?"

"Adam's love for Sarah wasn't genetic--it was learned behaviour. And just because we look like them, and carry their DNA, that doesn't mean we are them. We're free to be ourselves, not just copies of our parents."
