I hope you don’t mind if I use the scenario from when Vriska met an alternate timeline John who didn’t know her.
“So you’re trying to tell me that I actually know you, and that we are pretty good friends?” John is having a bit of trouble digesting this all at once. Good thing you are sitting on this park bench; you wouldn’t want him collapsing and hurting himself.
“Yeah, pretty much. But I was killed, so I can no longer speak with that version of you.” A sad smile invades your features. No crying now, you need to be strong like you always have been.
“I’m guessing you miss him. Was he just as cool as I am?” Now he’s grinning.
“Yeah, he was the coolest. But none of that now! It’s my first time being on your planet, will you show me around?”
“Yeah, sure!” John stands up and takes your hand, urging you to follow him. You do. “So this is my street. I have a bunch of neighbors but I’ve never really spoken to them. Uh, if we walk this way, you can see where the old betty crocker factory was. Apparently, a meteor crashed here! That’s when my Dad found me too. But, that crash is also partly responsible for my Nanna’s death…” John looks down with guilt. All you can do is put your arm around him and say something to lighten the mood.
“Well that sure is a grand entrance if you ask me!!!!!!!! What a way to make an impression!” John offers a small smile. “Oh come on John, it’s all in the past. It was supposed to happen like that. It’s all part of your timeline and contributes to what is going to happen. You will know how, I believe, soon.” He shrugs.
“So what about you? Anything else you haven’t told me that you take an interest in?”
“Well, there is one thing I am curious about.” John looks at you with wondering eyes. “When I was nearing my death, I tried to contact ‘you.’ ‘You’ weren’t exactly responding.”
“What did you say that ‘I’ missed?”
“Well… I asked if ‘you’ would like to go on a date sometime, with me. That was, of course, assuming I had survived my last battle. Anyway you never told me whether you would like to or not so I was left wondering and I was worried maybe you weren’t responding because it was an automatic no. I mean people like me are allowed to worry about stuff like that, right?” Words are flowing out of your mouth, trying to hide the embarrassment but most likely just making it work. “I guess it wouldn’t matter since I died anyway but—”
John clamps his hand over your mouth. “I get it, I get it. I don’t know you as well as that John so I wouldn’t be able to answer for him as accurately; but you seem really cool. If it were me—wait, it is haha—this me, I would definitely give you a chance! So how about we count me showing you around as a first date. We could go to the park and I’ll push you on the swings like in the movies.” He takes your hand and puts his other on your shoulder. You smile and squeeze his hand.
“Okay, lets do that.” The both of you proceed to walk to the park, holding hands and smiling like idiots. You never want this moment to end. Obviously it has to at some point, but for now you get to remain in your bliss. You hope John feels the same way.
I’m really sorry. It’s not as long as the others but you can always ask for a lengthier version or continuation or even a whole new fic! I hope you enjoy it~
