A ship game for Petrolea

(Petrolea is my novella about environmental conservation and robot dragons)

Who comes up with cheesy pick up lines?
Victor. He has a macro for them.

Who rearranges the bookshelf in alphabetical order?
Neither. Victor keeps his trashy magical realism love stories on his personal cloud, and Feroza mulched her childhood library to protest the paper industry.

Who licks the spoon when they’re baking brownies?
Brownies aren’t a thing in India or Peru, but Victor will have his mom make torta de chocolate for Feroza as soon as get back to Earth. He has fantasies about licking that spoon.

Who buys candles for dinners even though there’s no special occasion?
Victor. There’s a macro for that too! But converting mechanoids into balls of flaming oil wastes oxygen and pisses off Feroza, so he stopped.

Who draws little tattoos on the other with a pen?
Feroza. She has tamed a little mechanoid that spits ink as a defense mechanism.

Who comes home with a new souvenir magnet every time they go on vacation?
Feroza. Except the magnets are small mechanoids and she calls them “samples.” (in private, she calls them “bachcha”)

Who convinces the other to fill out those couple surveys in the back of magazines?
Victor. He has a whole archive of Cosmopolitan Perú on his cloud. He says it’s for “research”?

This one dedicated to @atalantapendrag and @gemofsphene. Did I do this right?
And where can I find more of these? I should do them for the WIP so I can get a better handle on the characters’ relationships.

And other writers, let’s see yours!
