They told you to shoot for the moon because even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. Now you’re floating in a tiny capsule in the cold dark of space, wishing you had a better understanding of metaphors.

dancing prompts — part 2:
i exited the ballroom to take a breather (or because i was angry) and you noticed and followed me out because it's dangerous to be alone in the dark. seeing me safe, however, you think it's a perfect time to confess your love for me in the gardens
you need my help with tying your tie/necktie and we're so close, your neck is so warm and flushed; are you alright??
i've always seen you in casual clothes but man do you look good in party wear
the classic ’someone spilled juice on me’ except the room i'm changing in is the one you chose to hide from someone in the party but now we both ditch the party and have our own fun
we’re about to kiss during a dance but the music ends and you pull away and my chance is gone oh what if I misinterpreted your feelings?
i was dared to dance the rest of the night with you — my enemy, and I did so reluctantly but now everyone thinks we're perfect for each other and god there are rumours (and I don't exactly hate the attention...)
dancing in the dark, exploring each other's bodies intimately
you've found your handsome prince... except, your problems haven't disappeared and you don't truly feel happy
i'm really sad i can't go to the ball because i don't know how to dance but you offer to teach me (and i'm your crush)
alternatively, I don't have a dress and you offer to prepare one for me
dancing to our own music
we can't go to the main party for reasons but let's create a small party for ourselves where we dance to our favourite songs in the living room
we were hyped about the dance but it got cancelled, so let's create our own?
i pretend i do not know how to dance so i can spend extra time with you
rivals (maybe from different cultures) showing off their dancing skills to each other and pretending they don't like it
assorted dialogue prompts:
“trust me.”
“let me guide you.”
“keep your hand on my waist.”
“don't look at the floor, look at me.”
“do you trust me?”
“take my hand.”
“will you do the honor of dancing with me?”
“I'd like to have you as my dance partner.”
“will you be my dance partner for the ball?”
“lead me.”
“oh, name, you look so beautiful!”
“you look ravishing!”
“it is a shame no one will dance with you. people really do have bad taste.”
“are you nervous?”
“i’m a little nervous.” ”don’t worry, so am i.”
“don't be. I'm right here.”
“let's ditch the party.”
“your cheeks are so red.”
“this dress is too tight!”
“I'm not going to the ball wearing this!”
“you have outdone yourself once again.”
“i prepared an extra dress in case of emergencies. i think it will look really pretty on you.”
“my feet hurt so badly. please help me escape, [name]!”
*growling sound* “is that...?” “my stomach? yes. i'm famished, don't judge.”
“oh my, all that glitter!”
“you've decorated the hall wonderfully!”
“the hall is breath-taking !”
“what are we dancing to?”
“you totally made up this song, didn't you?”

“You’re, like, kind of a shitty hero,” the villain’s new sidekick squinted at the hero, fidgeting nervously. “I mean- the sheer amount of property damage you’ve caused is astronomical, not to mention your behavior towards others.”

“Do you need anything? Aspirin? Another pillow? Are you hungry? I’m going to make you some soup.”
“Soup is for sick people. It’s just sprain, babe, and we both know it was an accident. You don’t need to fall all over yourself to make it up to me.”
“I know, I just wish I had been paying better attention, is all.”

Hi, I don't know if you've done this before but can you do a enemies to lovers with fake dating prompts? Thanks :)
enemies to lovers — fake dating prompts
“ you fucking hate me. “ “ hate is a very strong word. “
“ would you just do me this one favor? “
“ maybe this will be a chance for us to see that we're not so different after all. “
“ if you want to kiss me, all you have to do is ask. no need to orchestra this whole ordeal just because you're too afraid to admit what you want. “
“ it's one weekend. “ [beat] “ is the sight of my face really that repulsive? “
“ you're too much of a wimp to be honest about what you want. “
“ don't flatter yourself. you're simply nothing more than a means to an end. “
“ what better way to piss off my parents than to date the one person in this world they would actually consider driving over? “
“ with your mouth on mine, there's less bullshit coming out of it. so i guess there's that. “
“ don't fucking speak, or you'll ruin everything. just sit there and look pretty, and maybe hold my hand. “
“ don't be such a grump. you should be honored. “
“ considering how you treated me last night — you're lucky i didn't kill you, so unless you want that to happen, why don't you shut up, and do this one thing for me? “
“ remember that time you stabbed me, left me to die? yeah, you owe me one. “
“ clearly, you're desperate. otherwise you wouldn't be here. “
“ i can't stand the sound of your voice — let alone the thought of kissing you. “
“ if i give you ten dollars, will you do it? “ “ i think that's an entirely different service, but sure. “
“ just kiss me. “
“ you? protective? boyfriend? “
