“Ooh! What’s that one for?”

“You mean this old thing? Aw, that one’s no big deal. Got it when I was the first to reach level sixty in WoW back when that was a thing. I don’t even play anymore since the Raiding Prizes were all given out. Those are all in the next case if you want to see them.”

“Actually, I was thinking we could… do something else.”

“You know, I was just going to suggest the same. Follow me. My mounted trophy room’s through here.”

“That’s not really what I was talking ab—”

“Voila! Breathtaking, isn’t it? Come in! I’ll build a fire and then we can tour my Pokémon exhibits.”

“Well, I wouldn’t say no to a romantic fire. Do you have anything to… drink?”

“Oh, totally! Check it out. See this stuffed Snorlax? Yeah, it’s a mini fridge. What do you want… Diet Mountain Dew or Iced Frappuccino?”

“Umm… don’t you have anything alcoholic?”

“I might have some 99 Bananas leftover from the Smash Bros. Party last year…”

“You know what, never mind. Say… how about you show me your room?”

“I dunno. It’s kind of a mess right now.”

“That’s alright. I don’t mind.”

“Well, okay. In fact, maybe you could help me with something.”

“Oh yeah? And what might that be?”

“I’m in the middle of organizing my Star Wars figurine dioramas by series number and movie chronology. How knowledgeable are you on AT-AT offensive formations?”

“Wow. You can’t be serious.”

“To be honest, I am a little embarrassed. I’ve been having trouble discerning between Old Republic and Galactic Empire maneuver warfare theory since the new MMO came out.”

“That’s it. I’m leaving. Call me when you’re serious about our relationship.”

“Wait! I’m sorry! You’re right. Tell you what. I have the original version on Laserdisc. We can review the Battle of Hoth together! What do you say?”

“God! Why are the cute ones always so nerdy?”
