Orchis and Nettle
« on: July 27, 2019, 10:56:47 PM »
Orchis and Nettle would be an interesting pair :strawberry2

I've actually thought about that... maybe that's why she was so willing to spy for him.

I wonder what Hyz' reaction would be like if she heard she was betrayed because Nettle thinks Orchis is hot?

I just imagine Thethuthinnang saying: "I'd judge but..." looks at Hyzenthlay "...yeah no not one to judge."

I suppose Hyzenthlay might perhaps question Nettle's tastes in bucks, since Orchis has often been compared to a hyena.

Well... I have a hyena as my icon on DeviantArt so....

I wonder if Orchis would return the affections?

I mean, so long as it's convenient to him, I'd imagine.

Orchis is a numero uno kinda bun.

Probably. I imagine he'd make use of it without any qualms.

Gotta look out for number one!

Would Orchis be legit attracted to someone?  Not just to extract uesful information, but actual love.

That and any other emotion we see from him is for his brother whom he wants to avenge.

From what we see of him I'd say no but what we see of him is rather limited, of course.. I believe he genuinely loved his brother though so I'd say it's not outside the realm of possibilities.

Or, you know, for my fanfics sake I like to think so at least xd
