Rose is terrified of spiders/insects and finds one in the bath one day. Cue panicked screaming.
"OH MY GOD JOHN THERE’S A HUGE BUG IN THE SHOWER COME KILL IT."
John pretends that he’s totally not as freaked out as she is and tries to kill it, but then it moves.
And then they both start screaming.
"OH MY GOD I CANT DO THIS YOU KILL IT."
"ARE YOU CRAZY, YOU KILL IT."
"NO YOU KILL IT."
"NO YOU KILL IT.”
This goes on for ten more minutes until they realize the bug has escaped.

[Quick little future fic snippet!]
When he gets into his office for break, Rose is there waiting for him and there’s more stuff on his desk.
(A wind up robot, a hopping Godzilla, and three little rubber monster ladies to complete the set already started there.)
“Rose, I’m running out of space here! Can’t you store your weird knick knacks some where else? Like your own office?” There’s practically no space for him to put his lunch down!
“Well technically yes, but I can’t have my students knowing that I like things like this I have my reputation to maintain after all. You, John, are a “cool” teacher.” Rose makes air quotes around the word cool and John would probably be offended if anyone besides Rose did it. Besides, the older he gets the less he cares even the tiniest bit about coolness. “It is accepted that your office will be a house of frivolity and hijinks.”
“It’s too bad that they don’t get to see this part of you. The frivolous hijinks part.”
Rose waggles the little monster finger puppets on her hand.
“I think I like it better this way, though. When there are things just for us.”
And he kind of has to agree.
Can we talk about something here? No one seems to pay attention to ANY interaction between John and Rose anymore. Even though they had plenty of conversations, no one cares. I don’t care if it was romantic or not, people just don’t care for some reason.
Yet… you know what? Why hasn’t paradox space ever just had… friendly interactions between them? Or John and Jade for that matter?
All anyone ever cares about is shipping, which is all about the rosemary and the karezi. Shipping is all well and good, but… honestly I just want to see these two people who haven’t talked in three years talk to each other and not have people completely ignore it like last time. You know what I’m talking about! No one cares for some reason… and I know it’s not literally no one, but it feels like that sometimes.
I don’t know, am I weird for wondering this? Is this not a normal thing to think about?

or wait, what if….what if it takes him ages to grow anything and eventually he is able to cultivate a grow shitty teen sparse-stache and he’s so happy and Rose is like
"I’m not putting my mouth anywhere near that thing"
iso he’s stuck between being denied smooches until he can get past the gross wisp hair stage or getting rid of his beloved upperlip fur
(Jade finds in him in the bathroom tearfully shaving. rip shitstache)
