ID: Some lineless art of Taako and Wup (worm Lup.) Taako is an elven man with tan skin, long blonde hair, and a slight build. He is wearing casual wizard clothes in various shades of blue. Wup (worm Lup) is a huge, magenta-colored worm of the string. On the left, Taako is wearing Wup like a giant scarf. His hands are in his sweater pockets and his face is partially obscured. On the top right, Wup is laying in a neutral position, with a caption of three question marks. Right below that is another drawing of her, this time revealing an open, muppet-like mouth with the caption saying, "Oh geez no why." Another caption reads, "Author's note: I refuse to give her a realistic mouth." On the bottom right, Taako is holding Wup on his outstretched arm. She is facing forward and shooting magic missiles. A caption with an arrow pointed to her face reads, "spell fire from her snoot." End ID.

“The closest thing to love at first sight I’ve ever experienced happened when I first laid eyes on you.”
"Favorite writer?" Barry said. "Author? Favorite Writer and/or author."
"Ugh," Taako said immediately from where he was laying on the couch. His feet were over the top and his head was hanging off the cushions. One of the cats was playing with his braid from under the couch. "How do you not know Lup's favorite author? It's literally all she's been talking about for the past fuckin' month."
"I- I've been busy!" Barry defended.
"You have not," Taako said, which, yeah, fair. He really hasn't been. "It's just that every time you talk to Lup, you zone out and focus on her voice or her hair or whatever the fuck-"
"I'm not that bad," Barry said, flushing.
"What did Lup say before she left?" Taako challenged. Barry paused. He knew this. This wasn't that hard. She had left not even ten minutes ago.
"She was she was... going to get... food."
"Where?" Taako asked, raising his eyebrows.
"At- at a food place?"
"You're hopeless," Taako said, pulling himself upright again. He raised got his legs down and reached for his phone. "She's going to Smoothie King 'cus you've ruined her sense of taste. And then she's going to McDonald's because of the aforementioned ruined taste."
"We literally met while you worked at a McDonald's, Taako."
"That's not the point," Taako said. He had unlocked his phone. "The point is that one, you've only made her worse-" Barry knew by now it was best not to argue. "And two, her favorite author is some wack-ass nerd named Sildar Hallwinter."
"Uhm," Barry said, feeling his stomach drop. Taako was scrolling through his phone now as if trying to find something. "I've- I've never heard of that person before, uh- what do they write?"
"He started out with a buncha mediocre sci-fi shit, which like, that was okay! Lup's been into sci-fi stuff before, I can vibe with that. Mostly short fiction, y'know? Sometimes some horror elements."
"Sounds right up Lup's alley," Barry said nervously. Taako didn't seem to notice.
"But-" Taako continued. Oh boy. "Past few months he's been doing so much romance? Like so much romance. And it's not even the good kind."
"Well," Barry said, trying not to feel offended. "He's trying his best, I'm sure."
Sildar Hallwinter wasn't exactly known for romance. Barry knew that. He knew that very well, considering he was Sildar Hallwinter. All the stuff he wrote under "Barry", his mom would somehow find. He had to escape that. But it'd been quite a while since his mom had passed and "Sildar Hallwinter" was never going to go back to "Barry Bluejeans" without a mass amount of confusion from his followers.
How had he not heard Lup talk about this? Maybe Taako was right and he really did just zone out whenever she came into the room.
"Uh-huh," Taako said, doubtfully. "Hey, listen to this-" Taako cleared his throat. Barry tried his very best not to cringe. ""The closest thing to love at first sight I’ve ever experienced happened when I first laid eyes on you. You are the sun, the brightest thing in my life. The center of my-""
"I think I got it," Barry managed to get out, his face burning. He buried his face in his hands to hide. Taako sniggered.
"It goes on for miles," Taako said. "I, personally, do not see the appeal. Now Lup, on the other hand- She's got it almost as bad for this writing as Hallwinter has for whomever the fuck he's writing about. And I have to live with her Barry. Do you really wanna put yourself through that?"
Maybe he should just stop posting. That'd be less awful than ending up in this scenario again.
"The writing's not that bad," Barry said finally. Taako scoffed. Barry could practically feel the eye roll from here.
"The writing is whatever," Taako said. "Do you wanna live through Lup reading the writing to you? All the time? Forever, probably?"
"She does voices for the characters, Barry," Taako stressed. "Voices."
"The writing's not that bad!" Barry said again. "I- I think it's kinda sweet? Maybe?"
"You're awful," Taako said. "Both of you, awful."
