Well, when an ultrasound is given or the right type of sea creatures use their abilities to see into things, there's a feeling to it. The sound produces a physical vibration sensation in the part being scanned. It is an ACTIVE ability where sound has to be overtly emitted! So if you feel a strange tingling/vibration in certain parts of your body that you can't explain otherwise (perhaps because it's outside your normal range of hearing)... it might be a sonar/echolocation scan, maybe? ... Wait, don't those sea creatures use the scans erotically? Man, if he could do that, that would be AWESOME for bedroom stuff!

>Switch POV to Mel.
As much as you wish to be someone that has it as easy as Mel has, you can’t. At least, not right now. You’ll simply have to wait for another thread to get his point of view.

>Confidence is good, but lying about who you are isn't.
And if you wish you were the lie you keep telling yourself? After all, you are a confident, handsome dude that takes no shit… and… you’re cute?
>You're overthinking it. Take a moment to calm down.
That’s right, you need to stop thinking about this shit to deeply and focus on the now instead. You might be a fuckup later, but right now you aren’t.
>You've already secured a date! That's more than some can even hope for. Your date wants to meet you, so in a way, you're already desirable and doing things right.
You’ve always found it rather easy to secure dates, the problem is actually getting through them. Usually you do something to fuck everything up… but just as often it’s already gone to crap because they expected someone else… either in your personality or your looks.

>Zstolt wants someone to talk to as an equal.
Which is the problem. He wants someone who is his equal…
>This guy wants to break out of his shell, live on the wild side.
Now that is something you might just be able to help him with. After all, you’ve always been bloody wild.
>if the bar you're heading to recognizes you maybe they'll be a little friendly know that you're more or less a regular.
Which is part why you suggested that place in particular. You know the fuckers that work there… well, some of them… but most importantly the bouncer.

>Most important factors are cleanliness, neatness, and honesty.
Cleanliness is freaking easy, neatness in your surroundings isn’t your thing most of the time but you usually keep yourself neat at the very least. As for honesty… well…
>A shower will help you relax.
A cold shower does soothe the soul as well as cleans it.
>Listen to some hard rock to psych yourself up and get in the mood.
The mood leans more toward Synth Rock, so you put some on while taking that shower.
>Make sure your nails are nice.
You polished them this morning, so they should be nice and soft.
>Brush your teeth.
Which you also did this morning, though it won’t fucking hurt to use some mouth wash. Better to have a minty fresh breath than one that reeks of dead shit.

>Keep the makeup cause he liked it.
He did say he liked it, didn’t he? Though… he had a hard time actually seeing… err… hearing it? Hmm... Will he even notice if you put on a bit of mascara? You usually don’t wear it but…
>Put on a *little* cologne, to play things safe while keeping your routine intact.
Yes, safe… you like safe when it comes to dates… safe is good… as far as you can get from fucking up, really.
>Look up, real quick, if your cologne's type of scent is distasteful to his species.
And you’ve already done your first fuckup by not checking that first! Luckily… or unluckily, you can’t find anything about this particularly scent at all. Of course, you can’t really understand what scents his species find distasteful either, with the exception of the usual things that most people think smells like shit. Well, there were a warning about powerful smells, but that’s about it…

>Get dressed like you're about to do a gig with your band.
You really don’t want to go around in costume all night… not to mention you don’t think Ztolt would appreciate it either. Besides, that thing is a nightmare to get shit out of, so no fucking thanks.
>Clothes... wear something nice, but casual since it's a lunch date and not a dinner date.
Your usual clothes are as casual as you can get, really… though of course you don’t really have any super nice shit to put on in the first place anyway.
>Maybe something a little more feminine than you usually wear, but not enough that people would stare? Whatever makes you feel comfortable with who you are.
Do you even have anything that feminine to wear? You do have some things that are more pink and purple. Yeah, no matter what the other fuckers says, you’ve always been able to rock the pink!

So it’s either that or the clothes you usually wear… or should you hurry and buy something new before the date? Hmm… he was wearing a bowtie in that picture, so maybe he’s expecting a suit? You don’t... do suits very well…


>Let Mel know you're going out.
You can hear him talking to himself in the other room, so you don’t even need to leave the bathroom to speak to him.
:TristanBC: Hey, Mel, what was that about talking to yourself you said earlier?
:MelBC: Huh!? I wasn- I mean, I… err… did… I’m s-sorry.
:TristanBC: No sweat, dude. You do you. Just wanted to say I’m going to bail soon, so lock up if you leave, you dig?
:MelBC: Err… sure… um… good luck?
>No way, it's a simple question about insectivore, and you should ask Mel. Surely he'll want to help.
:MelBC: What? Why would I know about alien diets? I mean… I’m pretty sure crustaceans aren’t insects, Tris? Why don’t you look it up yourself?
:TristanBC: Because I only understand like half the shit that they write in that freaking Archive thing of theirs!
:MelBC: Then ask them about what they eat?
:TristanBC: …I guess that works too? Thanks a bunch, mate.

>No. You're going out for lunch, and if the dish doesn't agree with you, you just move on to another one. He's sensible enough to do the same.
Right. He’s an adult, just like you. You don’t need to worry about him, as he will take care of himself. You need to stop thinking that this is like some badly written dating sim or something!
>I'm sure the restaurant will be able to cater to Raolme; I'd be more worried about yourself, but you'll never know until you try it.
They’ll probably have more food for him than they have for you, seeing as you’re the one they’ll find more alien. After all, you’re in their home, not the other way around. You are the alien… fuck, that’s kind of weird… shit man…
>I'm sure if during your date any sounds were bothering him he'd let you know, same as you'd do if say something with you albinism was bothering you.
Indeed, he is after all a human being who you can talk to and… well, he’s not human, but you get the idea.
>Oh and do you think you'll need your umbrella and shades?
You always have them in your bag, just in case.

>When an ultrasound is given or the right type of sea creatures use their abilities to see into things, there's a feeling to it. So if you feel a strange tingling/vibration in certain parts of your body that you can't explain otherwise it might be a sonar/echolocation scan, maybe?
Hmm… the only thing you experienced when you activated that Sonarsync crap was a weird sound, but that might change when you meet Ztolt in person.
>Wait, don't those sea creatures use the scans erotically? Man, if he could do that, that would be AWESOME for bedroom stuff!
That’s… err… heh, yeah, that would be awesome, wouldn’t it. And weird… but mostly sweet.

>Also remember to leave early.
You still have a full hour, so it’s still a bit too early to be leave early.

Let’s see… calmed the fuck down: Check. Cleaned up: Check. Solved the dress situation… well, you haven’t actually decided yet but… almost check?

Let’s see… what else… is there anything more you need to do before the date? Maybe grab a glass of liquid courage? Or have a quick wank. You’ve heard that supposed to be something you do before a date. Of course, you heard that from a terrible movie, but still… and aren’t you supposed to bring a gift or something? Hmm…
>>

Don't bother bringing a gift, it's a bit too early for that kind of thing, you don't even know what kind of stuff he'd like yet.
>>
No. 973656 ID: 62e4df

Wear what you usually do, wear the make-up, don't worry about a gift right now. The real goal of this will be getting to know each other, so you can get a gift later once you have a better idea what he might like.

>liquid courage
No, save the social drinking for the date if you're going to.

>quick wank
Don't shoot your load just yet, we're running things tight on energy and drive as it is! We want to go into this with some mana.

>aren't you supposed to bring a gift
Zstolt wants to have a fun and interesting date. Gift giving and making yourself out to not be his equal are exactly how not to go.

Don't make a big deal out of his social status, just treat him as your equal, because in this situation you are: you're looking to get to know each other personally over the course of lunch.

This is why I didn't vote for him. Guess people wanted bow tie dragon now rather than latter...


>You do have some things that are more pink and purple.
The color doesn't matter, you are dating a blind person.

>you heard that from a terrible movie
That movie suck and the advice was given by someone trying to sabotage the protagonist chances.

>liquid courage?
Didn't you said that you get shitface easily? Drunk people are only fun to hang around when you are also drunk, so don't start before Zstolt.

>supposed to bring a gift
Like flowers? That is pretty gay dude.
You could give him a trinket that serve as a conversation piece. Something like a deck of cards.

I just realize I made a terrible suggestion. Raolmes either can't see the cards content or can "see" the adversary hand.

Well, normal clothes are fine for a lunch date too. Just so long as you look good. The color doesn't matter, as someone else said, so... the style and condition is more important. Maybe material as well but we don't know what he likes in that respect.

Mascara could work but it shouldn't matter. He thought you looked really good with just eyeliner on. Leave it off.

Honestly, there's nothing you can do right now that will matter, if your problem is that you do/say something wrong during the date that fucks it up. I wonder though, is that even possible here? You're dating someone from a completely different culture, who won't expect you to know his culture. If you offend him, you can just apologize and find out how to avoid doing so again.

If this date goes well, you guys might end up in bed together! Just make sure you guys wear protection so that neither of you end up pregnant!

……what? He's an alien, you don't know how his biology works! It's entirety possible that you could get Zstolt pregnant! Or he could get you pregnant! There's a very real chance that could happen, even though both of you are male!

Even considering that, there's no way they'd be interfertile without MAJOR shenanigans going on. And any civilization that has sufficiently advanced technology to allow for true xenofertility, has trivially managed birth control as a matter of course.

It's probably too early for gifts, but he's inexperienced at this. If he brings a gift and you don't have one it might seem rude.

Bring a song album, maybe one of yours'? You can play it off as wanting to show off your music if it turns out to be a no gift thing, and see if he can even listen to your music.

>Didn't you said that you get shitface easily? Drunk people are only fun to hang around when you are also drunk, so don't start before Zstolt.
Ugh… getting drunk will make you fuck up, yes, but without it you’re going to be a bundle of nerves the whole time…
>Don't shoot your load just yet, we're running things tight on energy and drive as it is! We want to go into this with some mana.
It probably was a horrid advice anyway, from a shitty movie.

>Wear what you usually do.
Actually, just going as yourself is kind of calming in a way.
>The color doesn't matter, you are dating a blind person.
You keep forgetting that he is blind… though, you have to wonder, how much can he actually see? He did see that you were cute, so there’s that, but you don’t really know what he will or won’t notice.
>Mascara could work but it shouldn't matter. He thought you looked really good with just eyeliner on. Leave it off.
So leave it as you usually have it…
>Maybe material matters as well but we don't know what he likes in that respect.
Hmm… material and smell is probably more important to him than color… but you can’t really predict what he will like or not.

>It's probably too early for gifts, but he's inexperienced at this. If he brings a gift and you don't have one it might seem rude.
Which kind of puts you in a bind, doesn’t it? You guess you can get something and only give it if he brings a gift as well? That might work…
>Like flowers? That is pretty gay dude.
You’re going on a date with a man, so it’s as gay as it gets already. Though… aren’t they some kind of reptile? Which means… they don’t have balls… so… your balls can’t touch, thus it is impossible for it to be gay?
>Bring a song album, maybe one of yours'? You can play it off as wanting to show off your music if it turns out to be a no gift thing, and see if he can even listen to your music.
That’s an amazing idea! Not only is it a personal gift, but you can show off your skills to him as well! You just need to remember to play it cool and not force it… as well as hope that he likes the music.

>Honestly, there's nothing you can do right now that will matter, if your problem is that you do/say something wrong during the date that fucks it up.
Being prepared and in the right mindset helps… not to mention going on a date looking like a pile of shit is never endearing… be it intentionally or not. Hmm… better make sure that you haven’t been sitting in anything vile, that has happened once and you’ll make fucking sure it doesn’t again.
>You're dating someone from a completely different culture, who won't expect you to know his culture. If you offend him, you can just apologize and find out how to avoid doing so again.
You can still offend him so massively that he won’t forgive it… or keep offending him some way over and over again… or you can just be bore or a turd or something else he isn’t attractive to… there’s so many ways to fuck up…
>Don't make a big deal out of his social status, just treat him as your equal, because in this situation you are: you're looking to get to know each other personally over the course of lunch.
What even is his social status? Is he a big deal? Oh shit, are you going on a date with some big shot!? What if you’ll need to look out for bodyguards… or paparazzi… or… or mafia goons or… whatever!? Fuck it, Tris, stop it! You’re overthinking this shit again! You’re sure he’ll be just a normal dude with a normal job… that’s still important enough to get titles thrown at him… yeah…

Alright, time to stop fucking around and be awesome! You’re here! You’ll endear! You are probably queer! …and you’re almost a whole ten minutes early, giving you plenty of time to get a table and relax for a bit before Ztolts gets here.

Then you get a message from Aliena Affinitas, the dating site the two of you were using… a message containing information that is good to know before you go on a date with a Raolme. Apparently, your species share the same kind of acids, so most food that they serve will be fine for your consummation, though they will mostly only eat insects. It also says that… ah… sexual fluids are fine to be… ingested… so no protection is needed? Though there are a few warnings as well…

Warning: Strong sounds and smells can disorient a Raolme, and is considered very rude.
Warning: Raolme teeth are very sharp. If a bite results in bleeding, seek medical aid immediately.
Warning: Raolme teeth are venomous and while not deadly, even the slightest touch may result in temporary localized paralysis. While not fatal on its own, it might create dangerous situations.
Warning: If you are an insectoid species, please reconsider your dating partners. There have been many cases of accidental ingestion, even in situation where you the insectoid was consider larger than the Raolme.
Warning: Do not tie a Raolme into a knot. They do not like it.

Oh right. You were so busy being a sad piece of shit that you forget to fucking read up on his species. But you still have a few minutes, so you’re sure you can look it up real quick… at least the important stuff. Let’s see… they are blind… have really good smell… navigates through echolocation? Huh… cool… hmm… walks on all fours… their bones are malleable? What does that even mean? They can grow, extend and retract bone structures at will? They can move all their internal organs? What? The? Fuck? What have you gotten yourself into?

>If this date goes well, you guys might end up in bed together! Just make sure you guys wear protection so that neither of you end up pregnant!
…how would that even… you know what, they are already weird as hell, so you better make sure… no, they can’t make others butt pregnant, thank god. So that’s something at least that you won’t need to worry about.
>He's an alien, you don't know how his biology works! It's entirety possible that you could get Zstolt pregnant! Or he could get you pregnant! There's a very real chance that could happen, even though both of you are male!
According to this archive thing the aliens got, then fuck no, that won’t happen. Their baby making ways are surprisingly similar to your own, in that the dude blow a load into the girl and then a baby happens…

A weird clicking sounds next to you brings you out of your daydreaming about weird alien pregnancies. It’s the same sound you heard when you took that sonar picture, in fact. Looking down, you find who you can only assume is Sir Ztolt standing right next to you, looking… you think he’s a bit lost? You’re not sure… you can’t really read aliens that well yet.

:ZtoltBC: May I have a moment, my fungalniod fellow? I am in search of someone of the Burettian species, so may I ask if you can direct me to one that’s possibly sitting alone, seemingly waiting for someone? As you certainly know, they are a rather new species, so I haven’t had the chance to learn what they smell like yet… not to mention all these people, smells and noises is confusing me a bit… fuck, am I even in the right building?

…and is that a bowler hat?

>What is your species like anyways, Tristan?
Normal? You walk on two legs, eat most things, fucks most things and shit like you’re supposed to do. It’s kind of hard to explain, actually…
>It means they can bend in lots of ways.
…kinky.

>Holy shit i know he said he didn't like being called cute but he is downright adorable.
Most… resist… urge… to… pet… tiny… mobster…
>I believe the term to describe him is "dapper".
He’s dapper as fuck! It makes you feel massively underdressed, though.
>Dappadorable.
How can he be both cute and stylish at the same time!? That’s not supposed to be allowed!


>Sounds like he thinks you're a fungoid because of the silhouette of the umbrella.
…huh. You guess the umbrella does kind of look like a large mushroom cap?
>"Funny coincidence, he's looking for you too, mate."
:ZtoltBC: He is? Then may I ask that you point me in his direction, ma’am? Wait, did you say mate? Tristan?
:TristanBC: Yes?
:ZtoltBC: …oh. …shit.
>Fold your umbrella.
As you fold up your umbrella and put it back in your bag, you can outright see how the pieces starts falling into place for Ztolt.
:ZtoltBC: …is having an umbrella a fashion choice for your species? Because I am pretty certain it’s not going to rain today.
:TristanBC: I’m sure it’s for some, but I mostly use it to protect myself from the sun.
:ZtoltBC: …your species can’t handle the sun?
:TristanBC: They can. I can’t. I’m an albino, which makes my fur white, eyes red and the sun fucks my shit up if I’m not careful.
:ZtoltBC: Huh… fur of silver, eyes of fire…

>Time to play it cool. Introduce yourself.
:TristanBC: I am Tristan Dowe, usually just Tristan but my friends call me Tris. I would shake your hand but I’m not sure if that’s something your kind does?
:ZtoltBC: Sir Ztolteskanx tol Xai, chu ton o Ankh, yadda yadda and shit, the second… but call me Ztolt. Just Ztolt. And I would entangle my tail with yours but it seems a bit small for that… that is your tail, correct?
:TristanBC: That is indeed my tail, mate.
>And since he mentioned that he doesn’t know what you smell like, he might try to smell you. If he does, let him and don’t push him away.
:ZtoltBC: I have to ask, may I… ah… get your scent?
:TristanBC: Go crazy, Z.
:ZtoltBC:
:TristanBC: That means you may get my scent.
:ZtoltBC: I… assumed as much, but it’s better to be careful.

His snout almost brushes against your waist as he sniffs you… you’re just lucky he’s wasn’t just a bit shorter, or this might have been even more awkward…

>Oh and do mention your cologne if he's trying to get your scent.
:ZtoltBC: So that what that is. It is remarkable similar to the smell of a Mrrgh.
:TristanBC: I’m fucking sorry if it made it a bit confusing for you.
:ZtoltBC: No no, it is fine. It’s just a coincidence… unless you’re trying to smell like a large, walking mushroom?
:TristanBC: Unless they smell freaking sweet, then no, I wasn’t.
:ZtoltBC: Talking of sweet… the smell under it… what is that?
:TristanBC: …you mean my natural smell?
:ZtoltBC: No, something else… it’s a bit fruity? It’s some kind of fruit I’ve never smelled before…
:TristanBC: …you mean my shampoo? It is strawberry scented.
:ZtoltBC: I have no idea what you just said, but it smells lovely.
:TristanBC: I’ll keep that in mind to next time.

:ZtoltBC: Thank you. Sadly, I cannot say the same for you.
:TristanBC: Um…
:ZtoltBC: No, wait, that came out wrong. I cannot say the same for you because I can’t get a good look at you like this. I do like the glasses, though. They make you look sharp.
:TristanBC: And I love your hat, mate. It’s ado- It’s really dapper.
:ZtoltBC: And functional.
:TristanBC: Oh? What does it do? Protect you from the sun as well?
:ZtoltBC: It protects me from unwanted head pats.
:TristanBC: …unwanted pats?
:ZtoltBC: You’d be fucking surprised how often aliens likes to pat us on the head for some reason… so wearing a hat protect me from that.
:TristanBC: …heh, a likely story. That thing clearly doesn’t protect you from snout pats, which would probably increase thanks to how ad- how dapper that hat makes you look.
:ZtoltBC: *Snrk* Alright, yes, I’m kidding. No, it’s my teeth that protects me from those head pats.
:TristanBC: Teeth?
:ZtoltBC: I might bite the hand that pet me?
:TristanBC: By the eternal darkness, remind me to ask for permission before I try to pat you.
:ZtoltBC: Ha!

Ztolt snout widens into a large grin filled with wicked teeth, a grin that’s just slightly too big… it’s a good thing you resisted the urge to pet him earlier…

:ZtoltBC: It’s the endless dark… and please, you don’t need use our phrases and words. I rather listen to the shit you say in your own tongue.
:TristanBC: Noted… though I just assumed that you were doing too same with me, what with the sudden swearing.
:ZtoltBC: Swearing? No, swearing is kind of a universal language…or at least it’s easily translated between species. No, I don’t swear for your sake, but my own. Though I admit I might be trying to learn a few new phrases from you. It’s just… when I am with my usual circles of associates and family, I’m forced to be all prim and proper.
:TristanBC: While with me you can let lose a bit and talk shit?
:ZtoltBC: It’s a little freedom, but a nice one, to be able to say that they are all fucking… um…
:TristanBC: Wankers?
:ZtoltBC: I’m sure that sounds better in your langue, but yes, they are all boring fucking masturbaters.
:TristanBC: Well, fuck ‘em. Now, let’s forget about those bollocks and have some freaking fun!
:ZtoltBC: Heh… yes, let’s…

>Offer to lead him to a quiet corner.
:ZtoltBC: A quiet corner does sound, as you put it, fucking sweet.
:TristanBC: There is one right over there… err… I me-
:ZtoltBC: I heard where you pointed, do not worry. Now, have you already decided what to order?
:TristanBC: Honestly, I’m still a bit unsure what’s what on the menus you guys have here. I’ve found something that’s burger like and I’ve been sticking to that so far, so…
:ZtoltBC: I have prepared by looking up the menu and I found something that sounded rather delightful. Only problem is that it’s a bit heavy for lunch, so I was going to ask if you wished to share it with me?
:TristanBC: Well…
:ZtoltBC: Wait, your kind do eat live insects, correct? It said you were omnivores, which includes insects and shit, correct?
:TristanBC: Err… live ones?
:ZtoltBC: Also, I must ask, are you well, Tris?
:TristanBC: Huh? Why do you ask?
:ZtoltBC: Because your heart beat keeps going up and down quite a bit. It’s honestly a bit distracting.

There are some cultures back home that sometimes eat live animals, but I'm not from one of them. We mostly prefer food to be cooked by heat or chemically. It helps ease digestion, you see.

We certainly could eat insects...probably, but live might be a bit much.

Tell him you're a bit nervous, and worried about saying the wrong thing. I guess playing it cool doesn't work when he can hear your heartbeat.

A live insect... uh, normally you don't eat things alive. Generally it's cooked, but there are certain dishes where something is raw but still fresh so as to keep it from being contaminated. On the other hand there are some dishes which could be considered spoiled from an outside perspective, like cheese, and of course alcoholic beverages.
As for whether or not to eat the bug... well, so long as it doesn't move while you're eating it? Killing it right beforehand should be fine.

This is just something my hearth do. Is this too different from other species you've met?
I could try to get more zen but it would take weeks of practice.

It's a bad idea, but I'm open to new experiences.

No. 973929 ID: a38353

Assuming we don't have a heart condition we don't know about which is...possible but really unlikely, the heartbeat stuff is probably just nerves.
>>
No. 973935 ID: f8fa51

I guess we can, physiologically, but it's not usually considered normal. I've never really tried it, but I have to admit it doesn't sound particularly appealing. But I guess I can try it and order something else if it doesn't work out?

"Wait, are we going to be biting into the same thing? I know it isn't direct biting, but would it be safe to eat something your teeth touched? Would cutting this big bug in half first ruin it or something?"

Your species easily goes into states of excitement, which is why your heartbeat keeps speeding up. It means that you're enjoying his company.

As for live insects, well... you would rather eat your portion dead and cooked. But if they're able to do half and half that, you're willing to give it a try.

>Tell him you're a bit nervous, and worried about saying the wrong thing.
:ZtoltBC: And that makes your heart beat faster? Hmm… interesting.
:TristanBC: Is this too different from other species you've met?
:ZtoltBC: Considering most species doesn’t have one large muscle pumping blood around their whole body, then yes, it is a bit odd.
:TristanBC: You don’t have a heart?
:ZtoltBC: I have a lot of muscles to pump my blood around instead of just having one large fucker in the middle of my chest.
:TristanBC: So you’re practically heartless?
:ZtoltBC: *snrk* While my family is known for that, I like to think that I’m a bit different. Always have been more like gran gran than anyone else after all…
:TristanBC: I’m sure you have ten thousand hearts of gold in you.
:ZtoltBC: And you have a singular, huge one. Heh… must suck to go through heartbreak with that thing.
:TristanBC: Better one large heartbreak than a thousand small ones.
:ZtoltBC: Mmm… maybe you’re right… though it’s more like a hundred, but I digress…
>It means that you're enjoying his company.
:ZtoltBC: And I do enjoy yours as well, even if we haven’t spent that much time together. Don’t have a humongous fucking heart to show it off, though.
:TristanBC: Hey, no sweat. I got other ways to see if you’re having a good time, mate.
:ZtoltBC: Oh… really?
:TristanBC: For example, you scratch the shit out of the ground with your right hind leg every time I make you smile.
:ZtoltBC: I do? I… I haven’t actually notice that I do that…
>I guess playing it cool doesn't work when he can hear your heartbeat.
:ZtoltBC: Actually, I am quite impressed. That’s one of the reasons why I was so confused at first, as nervous people usually show it off in other ways.
:TristanBC: I guess it something you learn being part of a band. Can’t show people how nervous you are when you’re on stage, eh?
:ZtoltBC: I’d love to hear more about this band of yours, but that can wait until later. Right now we should focus on the food, as I’m fucking starving. So what do you say, Tris, share a meal?

>I've never really tried it, but I have to admit it doesn't sound particularly appealing.
:ZtoltBC: It doesn’t?
:TristanBC: We can eat insects, sure, but we usually don’t?
:ZtoltBC: Ah… I see…
>We mostly prefer food to be cooked by heat or chemically. It helps ease digestion, you see.
:ZtoltBC: Then the dish I had in mind might not be the most ideal one.
:TristanBC: I rather eat my portion dead and cooked so… unless you’re able to do a half and half…
:ZtoltBC: How do you half kill, half cooks something?
:TristanBC: Eh… necromancy?
:ZtoltBC: ...wait, you’re telling me that they have a level 5 [Translation Not Found!] with the spell [TNF!] just waiting in the kitchen in case someone wanted to [TNF!] and [TNF!] with their [TNF!]?
:TristanBC: Half of that didn’t translate well, but I’m guessing it was a roleplaying reference to fucking D&D or some such?
:ZtoltBC: It was indeed a nerd joke, yes… though it’s not from the game you mentioned… which translated to “Dinner and Dick”, which I’m pretty sure isn’t right?
:TristanBC: Err… no… no it is not…
:ZtoltBC: Maybe we can play a game of it sometime in the future? The tabletop game, not the freaking dinner and dick part. Geez…
:TristanBC: I guess that might be fun, yeah.

>Wait, are we going to be biting into the same thing?
:ZtoltBC: …no? We have utensils, don’t we? Which usually includes a knife?
>Would it be safe to eat something your teeth touched?
:ZtoltBC: I do not believe my venom have any effect if ingested, nor do I believe it will stay active for very long inside something I bite.
:TristanBC: That’s good to hear. Would suck if I poisoned myself by sharing a cupcake or something with you.
:ZtoltBC: Not that my venom is dangerous to your kind. If I understand it correctly, if I bit your hand it would only paralyze your hand for a little while and nothing more. Oh, and apparently it gives off a warm, pleasant feeling as well.
:TristanBC: Aw man, and here I was hoping to trip some balls…
:ZtoltBC: Heh, sorry man, but you need more powerful stuff for that.
>Well, so long as it doesn't move while you're eating it?
:ZtoltBC: You know, maybe I should order something else?
:TristanBC: That might be a good idea, yeah. Oh! How about this, we both order something individually and then we can share the shit between us? That way we can both get a taste of what the other like, eh?
:ZtoltBC: That does sound like a good idea, as long as you order something I can actually digest.
:TristanBC: Well… it says the burger has a Raolme option, so I guess that might work?
:ZtoltBC: Whatever you just said didn’t translate, but if it has a Raolme option, then it’s fine.
:TristanBC: Then let’s order!

It doesn’t take long after finding that quiet corner you promised him before a waiter approached the two of you. While ordering you make sure to specify that you want the Raolme option while Ztolt make sure that you can actually consume what he is ordering, which you can. Then the waiter scurries off, leaving the two of you alone again as well as leaving two tall glasses of… something drinkable that Ztolt ordered?

:ZtoltBC: Oh, yes, I almost forgot! I… um… got you something?
:TristanBC: Oh?
:ZtoltBC: Well… see… funny story… I was kind of in a hurry and… um...
:TristanBC: …and you… forgot something?
:ZtoltBC: I kind of forgot for a second that you weren’t a Raolme? A bit silly, yes?
:TristanBC: So, you got me a…?
:ZtoltBC: I got you some flowers?
:TristanBC: Flowers? Wait… aren’t those just… herbs?
:ZtoltBC: Herb flowers, yes! They… smell really good? There’s [TNF!], [TNF!] and [TNF!] as well as this new thing they have that I really liked called basilica. So yes, I… got you some herbs?
:TristanBC: …can’t say I’ve ever gotten a bouquet of herbs before.
:ZtoltBC: As I said, I was kind of going on auto pilot and… as this is my first date with an alien so… I’m sorry, I fucked up a bit?

Hmm, they look kindof nice anyway. Take a sniff, see how they smell.

Good thing you have that album ready! Tell him you weren't sure if there was going to be a gift exchange but you brought something just in case.
Ask what kind of music he likes!

No. 974018 ID: 9f00f4

Don't worry! I enjoy a good potpourri! It's very thoughtful of you. Just because my species uses sight to navigate doesn't mean we don't like a pleasant scent!

No, this is a fine gift. Normally, we go in for flowers for their colors, and herbs of all sorts are used for food... if that's basil in the bouquet, there'll be at least one familiar scent there!

>I’m sorry, I fucked up a bit?

tell him not to worry about it. It's the first date where neither of you really know the other all the well yet. Flowers, or herbs, are a good safe gift when you're not too sure what the other person likes. Guess this would also be a good time to give him a copy of one of your band cds/mp3/whatever you burned the damn thing onto. If he asked why you gave him a copy of our songs just tell him that you also felt that music was also a good safe choice and that you gave him some of your band's songs because you kinda wanted to make sure that none of the interments or anything that you guys play would be considered harmful or painful to his species. Would kinda make for a shitty night if you tried to be cute and play a song for him only to THEN find out that your instrument of choice hurts him.

"I hope they're safe; better to double-check with a bouquet made entirely out of stuff that 'fails to translate.' I do look forward to the smell if it's safe, though, if your own tastes are at all consistent."

No. 974023 ID: f8fa51

"That's actually really fucking romantic, mate. It's a bit unconventional, but I have a feeling this relationship is going to be a whole lot of that so it's actually kind of poetic in a way. Besides, they look nice, let's see how they fucking smell, yeah?"

"Actually, I got you something too. I didn't know if gifts were expected on the first date, so I was playing it safe. I brought you some of my band's music, maybe you could listen to it a bit later?"

Now that the food's been ordered, it's time to make small talk. He mentioned tabletop games, is that something he's done before?
>>
No. 974026 ID: a38353

pretty sure the one that actually translated is basil, so hey maybe we can cook with these at some point. it's a nice gift, and since he gave us one i suppose lets give him our music CD.

Tell him that you're impressed with how he can hear your heartbeat. You've got these really big ears (grab and wiggle them so he knows where they are on your body) and you can't hear something like that!

Then crack a joke on what he would've been sniffing if he was just a little shorter!

>Gift
Tell him not to worry about it and give him his gift. Tell him you also went on auto pilot as this is also your first date with an alien and you kinda forgot that he's got sensitive hearing, so you're not sure if your music will give him a headache if he listens to it. You're also not sure if he has a way to listen to the CD, since he might not own the device necessary to play it.

Looks like you're the one that might've fucked up a bit.

Gaaaayyyy!

Thank him for the gift and offer him the music record.

That is a very topical mistranslation. What other weird therms does this program come up with if you two start to recite abbreviations and acronyms to each other?

It seems like Tris would be good at poker. He's got a good poker face and can pick out peoples' tells, even in aliens.

Thank him for the bouquet and take a smell of it. Now would be the time to reveal that album. Tell him you wanted to see if he likes or can even listen to your music. In case you ever invite him to a concert or something.
