Saying "I Love You" Without Saying "I Love You"
When "I love you" isn't enough.
Cw: there is two (2) mentions of sex, once referred to as "fuck". A couple of lines have swearing.
"You mean everything to me."
"I can't say it back, but I need you to know I feel the same way."
"I genuinely don't think I've ever felt this strongly about anyone like I feel for you."
"I got you a little gift." "Awww! Thank you, this is sweet. What's the occasion?" "Nothing. I just saw it and I thought of you."
"Here. Happy Birthday." "Oh... my goodness. I... I can't accept this, it's too much." "You can. I want you to have it. You deserve only the very best."
*Pounces on them, kissing them deeply as soon as they come home* "Wow, what was that for?" "I just really missed you, today."
"I sometimes have to stop myself from grabbing you and kissing you." "Why would you stop yourself?" "I don't know."
"I don't ever want to stop touching you." "Good. Because I never want you to stop touching me."
"I cleaned the house, and the car, I made your favourite food, I gave the dog a bath, and I sorted through the accounts." "That's sweet of you, but how come?" "You've been really stressed lately, and I wanted you to come home and relax."
"When you smile at me, I have to remember to breathe sometimes."
"Dude, I just can't get her out of my head. I don't think I want to. All I want is to give her everything she's ever wanted." "Yeah, sounds like you love her, mate." "...Maybe I do."
"I want to marry you, have babies with you, buy you presents, kiss you, fuck you, make sure you've eaten and slept well, watch your hair go grey and your skin wrinkle and your belly go soft— be next to you for the rest of my life and whatever comes after it."
"I don't believe in coincidences. Someone upstairs sent me to you, saw that we needed each other more than anything, and I will thank them until my dying day."
"I think dying by your side, when we've lived a long, happy life, would be the best way to go."
"Ughhhhh... I don't want to go to work. I want to stay here and hug you all day."
"I have been blessed with you in my life, and I will spend it making sure you don't regret it."
"There isn't really anyone else. You're it for me."
"Saying your name brings me so much happiness."
"When you say my name, my brain just kind of fries. In a good way, though."
"God, you are so much better than my dreams."
"Hey, I got two tickets to this thing, I was wondering if you wanted to go with me?" "Me? Are you sure? Wouldn't you rather take one of your friends?" "No, not really. I'd rather take you."
"You're my best friend." "I thought James was your best friend." "No. You are my best friend."
"You make me so happy." "You make me happy, too." "I'm glad."
"I don't want you any other way. I want you as you are."
"You're my favourite person."
"I want you." "I'm not in the mood tonight—" "No, not sex. I want you. I want to know more. Talk to me, anything you want."
"I could sit here and listen to you forever."
"Your voice gives me goosebumps."
"When I look at you, my heart swells in my chest. That's never happened to me before."
"We'll see, James, I gotta ask the Missus." "We're not married." "That can be resolved."
I'm not that proud of this one, but I'll post it anyway in case someone else likes them.

“My life is in your hands,” the hero raised an eyebrow at the villain. “Isn’t that kind of intimidating?”
“It’s intoxicating,” the villain whispered, unsheathing their dagger and running at the hero.

Short Prompt #119
"Thanks for walking me back home. It's scary as hell out here at night." - the civilian said before kissing their partner on the cheek. "But are you sure you're gonna be alright by yourself?
Their partner chuckled. "I'll be fine, love. Don't worry."
They gently took hold of Civilian's hands and left a peck on their knuckles. "I'll see you tomorrow, yeah?"
"Y-Yeah. Love you!" - the civilian said, waving the other goodbye before retreating inside their house.
"Love you too." - their lover said and then walked down the dark street. As they strolled down the sidewalk, movement caught their attention in an alley to their side, and they slipped into the shadows.
"I... wasn't aware you had a partner, sir."
"Well, I do, Right Hand." - the lover replied, a stern look crossing their features. "And if I see even a single hair amiss on their head, there will be hell to pay. Understand?"
"Y-Yes, Supervillain, sir."
"Good. Now let's go. We've got work to do."

writing couples the reader roots for
[@/moonlit_sunflower_books on ig]
we're all suckers for a good romance, but quite often the characters just don't vibe together and there is nothing more disappointing than that. any good romance should be one in which the reader genuinely wants the characters to be together, and i hope this helps figure it out!
disclaimer: i am not a professional author and everything here is based on personal experience and preference. i also have literally no experience with romantic relationships; this is all based on fiction.
give them obstacles
"why can't they be together now?" is the question that you must always be asking about your couples, and if there is no clear answer, then something is wrong.
there should be a legitimate conflict keeping them apart. the classic one is romeo and juliet, where they are rivals, and nina and matthias are the same. with kaz and inej, it was their trauma. cardan bullied jude in the cruel prince and jo saw laurie as a friend in little women. make sure that there is a conflict that makes sense for the characters so that tensions rise and there is relief when they finally overcome it!
give them chemistry
don't force the romance, let it come naturally. chemistry can be any combination of banter, physical attraction, common interests, longing glances, arguments, bonding moments, and friendship or alliances.
obviously depending on what sort of tropes you're using, the combination will be different. but there has to be some kind of attraction between your characters that makes them feel like more than friends. multiple times i've read books where it feels like the characters are being forced to kiss each other by the author, and i realise this is incredibly vague advice, but let them play out their narratives in your head! don't force them to do things that don't seem to be working.
and my number one romance rule is The Kiss Rule: if they have to kiss for the reader to know they're in love, then they're not really in love.
give them grief
this kind of comes along with the 'obstacles' point, but let the fact that they cannot be together offer some sort of grief to the characters. or let the fact that they are together tear the characters apart.
<mark of athena spoilers> percy literally fell into hell for annabeth (yes my standards for men are too high) and honestly, that seems like a pretty important obstacle. but also percy's fatal flaw is loyalty, which means that he will go way too far to stick by his friends' side.
make it slow burn
even if your characters are attracted to each other at ford sight, don’t let them get together immediately. this comes hand in hand with my point about obstacles. make sure there is a reason the two aren’t together, and make it a g o n i s i n g.
add in a few *almost* kisses, build the tension, and let it drag out enough that the reader feels genuine satisfaction when they finally get together!

hiii! can i request obvious pining between childhood friends (who both are idiots/oblivious), and everyone can see it except them? have a good day!
Mutually Pining Childhood Best Friends to Lovers in Denial (Angst/Fluff)
They've been best friends their entire lives, and they're still going strong. Too strong. But they probably don't feel the same way. Right?
Cw: Swearing. One mention of arousal.
Best friends have a pact to marry each other if they are single in a certain amount of time. That time is approaching.
Going to each other's houses when the respective owner is not there.
Having to wear others clothes because of circumstances, and other gets too turned on.
Having keys to each other's houses.
Kind of sharing a pet, but it's not official.
Rosie gets clothes all dirty, goes to Ollie's house
Teasing each other with their (horrible) full/middle names.
Ridiculous nicknames.
Being each other's first kiss.
Fake dating. Fake dating. Fake dating. Having to kiss to sell the fake dating, getting way too into it. Little romantic mannerisms start coming to them like second nature.
All their other friends are just haggard.
Non. Stop. Inside. Jokes.
Getting married in Vegas when drunk.
Knowing each other's types/things that attract and teasing each other by doing them (i.e. attracted to a 3-piece suit, will wear a 3-piece piece suit.)
Insulting each other all the time, good-naturedly.
Practically being raised together, your families are interwined.
Fights rarely last long.
Being each other's first crush
Knowing all of each other's secrets— except one.
"Are you going home for the holidays this year?" "Yeah. My mum's pressing me about bringing someone home." "Mine too. Like we're just going to manifest dates in a month." "... Wait..."
"I cannot wait to see you, it's been months. Talking on the phone isn't the same."
"Hi." "FUCK! Ollie, I gave you that key for emergencies!"
"Hey, for Christmas, do you want to share a hotel room? I'm not staying at my parents house again. Not doing it." "You know what, yeah. That's actually a great idea. And we can split the cost, why didn't we think about this before!"
"Hang on. You booked one bed?" "I... don't think so, hang on *checks phone*... Yeah. I did. It was an accident, I'm sorry." "It's fine, not a big deal. We'll just share the bed."
"I love you, bud." "Love you, too, bud."
"Actually I'm bringing Mike home this year." "R-really?" "Yeah! It made sense, I thought I'd introduce him to the families."
"Aren't you two dating?" "No, we're just friends."
"You two would make such a lovely couple!" "Oh, no, grandma, we're not interested in each other... like that."
"I'm just saying that she would make a great wife someday!" "Mum will you give it a rest."
"I love you, Rosie." "Go to sleep, you're drunk." "No. I love you. I've always loved you." "Ok, come on sleepy head. Time for bed."
"Look, she doesn't see me that way, so just... let it go, ok?"
"You will not believe who I ran into at the town square!" "Who?" "Mikey! From Highschool!" "Woooow, really?" "Yeah! I haven't spoken to him since— well, since we broke up." "Yeeeeaah, I remember. Is he still tall?" "Uh, yeah, I guess." "Is he balding?" "What? No, why?" "No reason."
"He was an asshole to you!" "In highschool!" "And that makes it better?" "No, it means people grow the hell up— something you'd know nothing about!"
"I hate when you say just friends. Like you're settling. Being your friend is the best thing about me. Just because this relationship isn't romantic, it doesn't make it less valuable."
"You are the best part of me."
"You're my best friend. I don't know what I'd do without you." "You won't ever have to find out."
"You're not gettin' rid of me anytime soon, bub. You're gonna be stuck with me for a while. I'm like a fungus." "Gross."
"YOU KNEW! You had to have known!" "NO, I didn't know! I didn't know, how was I meant to know?! You never TOLD me!" "I was so obvious!" "I'M NOT A FUCKING MIND READER!"
"YOU KNEW?! All this time, you knew and you let me make an idiot of myself?!"
"She seems friendly." "I guess." "She was flirting with you." "What? Nah. She's just trying to get with my sister." "She was flirting with you." "Wha— hang on, she was?"
"Is it so hard to believe someone wants you? You're good-looking, you're intelligent, you're funny— this shouldn't come as a shock." "I am?" "Yes. Very."
*Slow dancing at a party as adults* "This is nice. We never do this, it's so... nice." "Yeah, it is."
"Have you ever considered it?" "Considered what?" "Us?"
"Do... Wait, do you want to try this?"
"Thanks, Ollie. It's sweet you got the corsage, and the limo and everything, but I know this was a pity date." "I do not pity you. I wanted to make you feel special. I didn't want some idiot dumping you to be the only memory you have of prom."
"Are you going to kiss me?" "Do you want me to?"
*kisses other, they don't react, too shocked* "Oh. Oh my god. I'm so sorry. I'm... we can pretend this never happened." *other kisses them back.*
"Remember that night at the school dance when Danny Orcino showed up without trousers and dived off the stage before any of the teachers could stop him?" "Um... no. I wasn't there for... that part. I was with Mikey." "Oh. Right."
"Is she pretty?" "Um... I don't know, I guess." "It's not a difficult question, do you think she's pretty?" "I don't know, why does it matter?" "It doesn't matter, you just can't answer a simple question!" "What has gotten into you?" "Nothing! What has gotten into you!?"
"No. You deserve someone that will spoil you with love. And if that's not them, screw them. Find someone better."
"All that time?"
"I don't know a better to spend the rest of my life with than my best friend."
"We're not just friends. You know we're not."
"You're a coward."
"You take good care of me."
"You're always there for me. When Mikey broke up with me, I called you, miserable. You turned up at my house with Chinese, ice cream and DVDs, and we watched movies for hours. After a while, I didn't even remember I was sad. Only you can do that."
"Look. I am tired of being jerked around by you. So make up your fucking mind, once and for all— are we friends or are we more?"
"That was you?... Why didn't you tell me?"
"I still remember Mrs. Dauber's Christmas party, when you wore tied your hair up with that little red bow. I knew then."
"Whenever I imagined my happily ever after, I always imagined it with you."
"What if this ruins our friendship?" "I love you too much to ever let that happen"
"What if it hurts too much? If this ends. And we can't bare to be friends anymore."
"I've always had to pretend like I'm not affected when you touch me."
"I love you. As a friend and as more. Whichever you choose, I will respect that decision and play my part."
"I just had to say it. And if you don't want me that way, we'll never mention this again. I'll be at your side when you get married, when you have kids, when you find the cure for cancer— and I'll be happy for you. I'll keep my feelings out of it."
"I love you, and because I love you, I will watch you walk down that isle with a smile on my face."
"Can we even be friends after this?"
*Kisses other after a moment of weakness* "Wh—... why did you do that?"
"I only went with Mikey because he asked me to. The person who I wanted to go with didn't ask me..." "Who?" "It's not important, they weren't interested."
"How long have you known? How long have you kept this a secret?" "Fifteen years..." "FIFTEEN YEARS?!"
"You never were like a sister to me."
"I don't know how long I can keep resisting my feelings for you."
"I love you. [Melancholy] I've always loved you. And I always will."
"It is my WEDDING DAY, Ollie! How DARE YOU confess this now?! I'm getting married!"
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry. This was a mistake."
"I'm sorry. But I can't... I can't sit and watch the love of my life marry someone else. It'll tear me apart."
This sucks, I'm sorry. I'm just not very good with this trope.
If you want a good reference to study this trope: The Mistake by @were-cheetah-stiles (Stiles Stilinski x Reader, Teen Wolf) of which I sought inspiration from.

"I- I'm sorry..." - the villain said, chuckling out of sheer bewilderment. "What did you just say to me?"
Hero stood there with a blank look, unbothered by the unbridled rage in their enemy's eyes.

The villain's laughter was sourceless and ever-present, and slowly overtaking the sounds of even my own thoughts.
I had been trained for this. I had trained for years. I told myself I was ready.
I had never been quite so wrong.
