Happy Valentine's Day! It's time for this month's Beautiful People! Yay! This is a link-up hosted by Paperfury and Further Up and Further In where you answer questions about your characters. I participated in Beautiful People for the last three years every month. Pretty crazy. XD This link-up has been just so helpful with character development.
Caleb and Pro's relationship doesn't blossom until the third book of their four book series Subsapien, but it's about time that I start delving into them as a couple. Thus I've chosen them for this year's Couples Edition! If you'd like to participate in this link-up yourself, check out either Paperfury or Further Up and Further In to see how. Here we go!
How and why did they meet?
When Caleb was turned into a biomech (basically a cyborg), he met Pro in their dormitory shortly after he woke up from the coma after operation.
What were their first impressions of each other?
Caleb immediately thought Pro was beautiful, but way out of his league. Pro thought he was a nice guy who needed her help, but nothing more.
How would they prove their love for each other?
For Caleb it's hard for him to find people he can trust with his secrets. Having Pro as someone he can trust means a lot to him. Despite all of Pro's bravado, she wants to feel protected since she's felt so vulnerable since a certain spoilery moment in her past. When Caleb becomes someone she feels safe around, that's when she starts getting feelings for him.
What would be an ideal date?
Caleb loves museums and Pro likes sports. A good happy medium for them is a museum with sports exhibits and Chinese food. They both love Chinese food.
Is there something they emphatically disagree on?
Pro loves sports and besides the exercise Caleb thinks they're a waste of time and they cause unnecessary injuries.
List 5 “food quirks” they know about each other. (Ex: how they take their coffee, if they’re allergic to something, etc….and feel free to mention other non-food quirks!)
1.) Caleb really likes macchiatos with chocolate syrup
2.) Pro likes any coffee drink with a lot of sugar and caramel syrup
3.) Caleb has chronic migraines and suffers from insomnia
4.) Pro hates dresses. She doesn't like the breezes.
5.) Both of them prefer ankle socks and can't stand the feeling of socks higher than that
What’s one thing they know about each other that no one else does?
For the longest time it was that they're both Christians which is illegal in their world. Caleb knows that Pro is more scared than she acts. Pro knows that despite Caleb's nervousness he's a very brave person.
What’s one thing that they keep a secret from each other?
That Caleb doesn't feel good enough for her and that if Pro tells everything she did while working at Rota that he wouldn't love her anymore.
How would their lives be different without each other?
Pro wouldn't have someone that she feels that she can take her shields down around. Caleb wouldn't have someone to help him get out of his shell.
Where do they each see this relationship going?
They're still young (15 and 14), so for right now they're just testing if they're compatible.
