outofguilt: using the very limited 3G on my phone to bring this message to you. The internet is down, thank you ice storm, so until it comes back I can not reply to anything. I have; however, cheated and typed my replies -even the meme prompts- in a document so I can post them as soon as my internet returns. I hope it is soon.
1. French Kiss:
Probably the most famous kiss there is, the French kiss is an open-mouthed kiss where one person’s tongue touches the other person’s tongue. Also called a “tongue kiss,” the French kiss easy enough to execute, but it can take years to master.
2. Butterfly Kiss:
To give someone a butterfly kiss, get close to them so the tips of your eyelashes are touching theirs. Then blink very fast so your eyelashes flutter together like butterfly wings. It’s a fun, cute thing to do while you’re catching your breath from more traditional kisses. You can also give someone a solo butterfly kiss by fluttering your eyelids against their cheek.
3. Single-Lip Kiss:
To give someone a single-lip kiss, take one of their lips between yours and gently suck or tug on it. It’s an awfully romantic kiss, and if you do it right, you’ll send tingles up and down your sweetie’s spine.
4. Spiderman Kiss:
Based on the kiss in the 2002 movie Spider-Man, the Spiderman kiss involves kissing someone whose face is upside-down from yours, so your top lip kisses their bottom lip and vice versa.
5. Earlobe Kiss:
A great kiss to to perform while you’re taking a break from lip kisses, the earlobe kiss involves taking someone’s earlobe lightly between your lips and tugging gently downward. For a more intense earlobe kiss, add a little bit of tongue, or use a gentle sucking motion on their earlobe.
6. Lip Gloss Kiss:
This is a fun, flirty kiss for girlfriends to give their boyfriends. Put on a healthy amount of lip gloss or ChapStick, then rub your lips on your partners’ lips until theirs are coated, too. For extra fun, surprise your partner with a sweet, fruity lip gloss flavor.
7. Eskimo Kiss:
In an Eskimo kiss, two people rub their noses back and forth against each other. It’s based on real kisses that people in Eskimo cultures give their friends. Just like with lip kisses, Eskimo kisses are best executed with your eyes closed.
8. Cheek Kiss:
The cheek kiss is exactly what it sounds like - a closed-mouth kiss against someone’s cheek. Cheek kisses can be used as friendly greetings, flirty thank-you’s or cute, unexpected ways to say good-bye to your boyfriend or girlfriend.
A hickey technically isn’t a kiss; it’s a red mark (a bruise, really) left on the skin after someone sucks hard enough on it. Hickeys hurt a little to get, but some people think the sucking feels good, especially on the side of the neck. It can be embarrassing to walk around with a hickey, so before you start sucking, get permission first.
10. Secret Message Kiss:
In the middle of a French kiss, spell out a secret message with the tip of your tongue against their tongue. It might feel a little funny to the other person, but at least you’ll be getting your message across.
11. Vampire Kiss:
The vampire kiss is a deep kiss on someone’s neck that can involve sucking or light biting on the skin. Since some people find it painful rather than sexy, and since the sucking might leave a hickey, always ask permission before you give someone a vampire kiss.
12. Wet Kiss:
Wet kisses are any open-mouthed kisses, with or without tongue. A little bit of wetness during a kiss can be sexy, but try not to overdo it: too much saliva is sloppy. Alternate between wet kisses and closed-mouth kisses and single-lip kisses, and be sure to swallow occasionally so you don’t accidentally drool all over your partner.
13. Lizard Kiss:
The lizard kiss involves flicking your tongue in and out of your partner’s mouth in tight, quick strokes (picture the way a lizard moves its tongue). This is a silly kiss you can try just for fun, but it generally should be avoided because it feels kind of creepy to get.
14. Air Kiss:
The air kiss is a sophisticated gesture you can use as a greeting to your friends and relatives. To give one, rest your cheek against their cheek and make a kissing sound with your lips.
15. The Biting Kiss:
The biting kiss is a more aggressive form of the French kiss. Like the French kiss, it’s open-mouthed and incorporates tongue, but as you pull back, your teeth lightly grab onto your sweetie’s tongue for just a second. Try it once and see how your partner responds. Some people love it, but others think it’s painful or weird.
16. Angel Kiss:
To give someone an angel kiss, kiss them very gently on their eyelids or on the spot right next to their eye, using just your lips. It’s a very romantic way to wake someone up or say goodbye.
17. Neck Kiss:
After French kissing for a while, some people mix it up by trailing their mouth down and “Frenching” the other person’s neck. To execute a neck kiss perfectly, go light on the saliva, focus on the motion of your lips, never stay in once place for very long and never suck hard enough to leave a hickey.
18. Jawline Kiss:
To plant a jawline kiss on someone, give them a firm kiss on the bottom of their jaw, right where their face meets their neck. If they respond well to it, make a path of jawline kisses up to their ear and give them an earlobe kiss.
19. Breath Kiss:
The breath kiss is a fun, silly kiss that’s almost more of a game than a kiss. To do it, open your mouth, inhale deeply and lock lips with your sweetie (like you’re performing CPR). Slowly exhale into their mouth while they’re inhaling, “passing” the breath to them. Without moving, slowly inhale while your partner exhales. Keep passing the breath back and forth until one of you runs out of breath or you both erupt in giggles.
20. The Love Kiss:
The love kiss is any kiss that you give while thinking tender, loving thoughts about your partner. You might not realize it, but your kissing style can be influenced by whatever’s on your mind. Smooching with love on your mind will make your kisses extra soft and sweet. Whether it’s on your partner’s mouth, neck, ear or forehead, the love kiss is the most romantic kiss you can give.
21. The Dementor:
Place your open mouth over your lovers mouth, and inhale. Their shrieks of surprise will entertain you, and you can literally say you have taken their breath away!
outofguilt: Oh my goodness, child. Putting this under a READ MORE because of the huge length because that was a lot. I tried to keep them short, but still enough to make your fangirl happy. I hope you enjoy it!
outofguilt: Yes. That was beautiful. All of it was so beautiful. Thank you for doing that thread with me. Kyouya would do something like that while Tamaki is so dense that he doesn’t think anything of it.
Once his glasses were replaced on his nose, he let out a long sigh. It could have been translated as enjoying the feel of the other host in a tight embrace….or, just simply the relief that came with unobscured vision. The smile that crossed his thin, bowstring lips wasn’t helping translate the mixed signals. “Infinitely..”, He answered his confidant’s question. He saw the blonde revert his eyes to the ground, as if seeing something of interest or even value before slipping downward from his arms. For the second time that evening, his eyes widened and the light rose color dusted over his features again. His own thoughts were screaming in his mind, asking Tamaki what he was doing and what he was playing at and what gotten into him!
Then his eyes saw the slip of pink paper that had all the ladies’ names written… this one being the one that Tamaki drew. That caused the taller youth to shake his head with a chuckle, “You idiot…” He spoke affectionately. The name becoming more of a pet name between the two boys then any form of insult. He took a few steps to extend their still joined hands, then pulled the host king back to him his feet to sweep him back into position. With a few more quick turns, they were back with the beat again. By this point, they owned the dance floor. Fellow hosts and guests alike stopped to watch the last leg of the waltz.
He noticed that Tamaki didn’t directly answer him. Maybe he didn’t even know why he accepted the joking partnership. Still, he could see all the questions flashing behind the blonde’s unique eye color and the cool-type host smirked with confidence. “You might be wondering what I have to gain by accepting your invite.” The fellow host was good at reading people. He knew that it often floored Haruhi to the point that she was convinced that he could read minds. “K.O. Entertainment gets a portion of the royalties for using our likeness and actual names for the characters in her publication. This will surely boost sales of her next event addition.” Yes, that was part of it. He also had a more selfish reason that he decided not to share, convinced he will take such things to his grave. After all, this was only high school. Why not be a little spontaneous. Even though the twins planned his name, Tamaki still could have picked another name. He didn’t…. and it was unlike an Ootori to let an opportunity slip by him.
As the song ends.. the raven-haired student sighed again, “Thank you, Tamaki. You were a wonderful partner…” He parted his company slowly, letting his hands slip from the blonde’s and offered a deep bow. “Enchanté….”, He rattled off in perfect French, looking up to his friend for a response…
––「王子」 Swept back into position, the blond held onto the pink slip tighter this time between his fingers that cupped against his dancing partner’s shoulder once again. He had to keep all the names he drew tonight so he could add them to his book of memories with the Host Club. Kyouya’s name was no exception. Even if this dance was a prank put on by the Hitachiin brothers Tamaki was enjoying it, so the joke was on them. It wasn’t that he as been hoping to dance with the club’s vice president, but opportunities to do something fun like this did not happen enough between the two. Though he cherished everyone in his club, they were his family, he missed spending time with just his best friend. This dance… It meant a lot to Tamaki. Besides, real men danced together, right? Like true best friends with the strongest bond ever seen by any and envied by all!
Eyes of indigo were locked with the dark gray orbs that stared back into his. They say that the eyes are the gateway to the soul. Tamaki believed this, but perhaps they meant to say ‘mind’ since it seemed that Kyouya just read his. “Aa,” he opened his mouth to question how the other knew, but then received an answer to his question. Royalties. Of course, his company was gaining something from this. By reflex the dancer taking the submissive role dropped his head against the shoulder of the leader, rolling his forehead against his partner’s tuxedo for a brief moment before lifting it back up to face Ootori with an 'I knew it' smile and a chuckle to go along with it.
The song began to fade into the far corners of the ballroom. He felt the raven’s hand slip away from his fingers and witnessed the bow, which he replied with one of his own. “Le plaisir était pour moi." The French rolled off his tongue naturally. Lifting from a bowing position, Tamaki gave a one of his classic charming smiles that caused his eyes to twinkle like magic. He then leaned in and placed a single kiss on his dancing partner’s left and right cheek. It was the French that triggered it, a collision of cultures as cheek kissing in Japan doesn’t have the same simple friendship meaning as it does in the Western world. It caused another out cry of the female audience, even the other hosts stared wide-eyed at the two.
His own action did not phase the King of White. He simply smiled and said, “You were a great leader, Kyouya. Thank you.” With that he turned to head back to the basket to draw out a new name. Carefully, he placed Kyouya’s in his pocket for safe keeping.
"Fortune.. is that what you consider this?" He inquired again, mostly for clarification then anything else. "I call it following the whims of two very devious little trouble-makes. I suppose it is expected of them. Still, you could have read the name out loud. The twins would have still reacted, and you could have laughed it off as a joke and moved on. I don’t think anyone would have thought less of you."
He kept in step and couldn’t believe the song was in third stanza already. If he could hold on to time a bit longer, he would. His mind thinking logically over any other emotional response…. “I already know this is going to be on the cover of Renge’s fan-manga. I would almost put money on it…”, the shadow king smirks, “almost…."
After another quick turn, he leans in next to the blonde’s ear. To others looking in, it appeared that the vice president was whispering something forbidding and sweet into the princely king’s ear.. the light blush that shaded the Ootori son’s face didn’t help the case either. In reality, he cleared his throat and whispered… “Tamaki…. My glasses are driving me crazy. They are about half way down the bridge of my nose. I am going to spin you out and roll you in to me.. think you can push them up for me?”, and as promised, he released his partner’s waist only to roll him up into his arms to where the other boy’s back was against his chest.. He leaned his head forward onto Tamaki’s shoulder to allow him the favor of comfort..
––「王子」 It was just like Kyouya to point out something like that. And, he was right. Tamaki could have just read the name out loud, glared at the twins, and tossed the paper slip aside to draw out another name from the basket. He could have changed his fortune. So why didn’t he? More importantly, why did Kyouya go along with the dance? He, too, could have just as easily laughed it off or refused altogether. So why didn’t he?
His own inquires halted in his mind at the remark of Renge’s fan manga. The blond shared in the smirk. Almost. He knew all too well that his best friend was not one to gamble unless the odds were fully in his favor. Something to gain. So now the questions in his mind continued, what did Kyouya have to gain from this? He tossed it up to ‘keeping things interesting’ which kept the clients coming in and happy. And from the sound of things, they certainly were happy.
Tamaki leaned his ear closer to his dancing partner as he exchanged the request and instructions. With all the squealing from the ladies, he had to get close enough to properly hear him. He gave a nod of understanding just before the roll. Angling his neck to see once his back was against the other’s chest, he used his first two fingers to slide the nose piece back up Kyouya’s bridge. The action caused an even greater uproar of squealing from the onlookers. One, a Kyouya fangirl, even passed out into the arms of her friends who fanned her face.
"Better?" was all he said. Then he noticed the slip of paper laying on the floor. His fortune! He had to pick it up, but was in a most difficult position to do so seeing as how he had Kyouya wrapped around him. So he bent his knees and slid down with his back against the Shadow King to reach for the slip. Got it!
It was very natural for Kyouya to take the lead role in the Waltz. After all, that is how every social starts and ends. However, he did take his time to allow Tamaki ample time to recover his change in venue. The third son was rather impressed how well that Tamaki was taking the turn of events. No kicking and screaming. He thought for sure that if he had to dance with another host, he would have protested in favor or Haruhi. Still, he knew Tamaki was a showmen and a consummate professional. If there was one thing that the youngest Ootori could admire, it was Tamaki’s ability to roll with the punches.
A heavy sigh left the young man’s lungs as he looked across to his dance partner. He felt rather at-ease, even in such and awkward situation. Those that looked on didn’t bother him or even distract him. In fact, it made him want to show off a little bit more. In the next movement he made sure to add a dip here and a double-turn there. He had all the confidence that Tamaki could keep up with the last moment steps. Once the music evened out again, Kyouya decided to make conversation. “So, why did you do through with it. You know it was just one of the pranks by the twins. Why didn’t you just toss the note aside and drew a real name.”
––「王子」 The Host King couldn’t say that he had ever been dipped before, well, that is if you don’t count the time when he danced with his mother all those years ago. The memory sneaked up on the unsuspecting blond, but it was a good one. He and Maman were watching one of the dramas Papa had recorded for them. The samurai danced with his maiden, and little René wanted to reenact it. Since he was too small to dip his mother, she dipped him.
Back to the present dance, the nostalgic smile from the memory still lingered at his lips. Kyouya was a wonderful dancer, something that came to no surprise to the blond. The Ootori lineage was strong, and with strong lineage came an refined upbringing. Keeping step with his partner looked simple enough, but performing the opposite of what he had learned was a challenge. But again, it was all about showmanship. With the exception of the brief memory, Tamaki had to stay focused which may have been betrayed by his stern gaze locked onto the raven’s glasses. That concentration was broken with his dancing partner’s inquiry.
"Aa," he blinked with a faint mumble to gather his reply. "If I had been seen tossing a name aside, how would that have looked? I can take whatever fortune fate decides to give me."
outofguilt: 704! You are all so amazing!! I don’t know what to do with myself.
