Scott Pilgrim Comicverse, Kim/Lisa
Summary:
  The things Kim does for friendship.

Lisa put her hands on Kim's knees and leaned over her, her chest about four inches from Kim's face.  "Kim!"

"Lisa."  Kim's eyes drifted downwards.  "Lisa's cleavage."

"Kim, I need a huge favor."

"How huge?"

Lisa chewed on her bottom lip.  "It's pretty huge, I'm not gonna lie.  And you're pretty much the only one I can ask, so just hear me out, okay?"

Kim quirked an eyebrow, but said, "Okay."

"Would you, maybe, kinda...make out with me?"

Kim blinked a couple times, then looked at her wrist.  "Oh, would you look at the time.  I have to go do something not completely random and retarded."

"Come on!"  Lisa crouched down and rested her chin between her hands, which were still on Kim's knees.  "This is really important.  And it's not even weird or anything anymore, everyone does it."

"I think the stereotype is most people wait until college," Kim said.

"College is too far away," Lisa muttered.

"Look, if you really can't control your bi-curious urges for another year, we could try sneaking into this bar I've heard of--"

"What?  No, no!  I have this audition, and they asked if I was okay with same-sex kisses, and I said I was, but..."

"Oh, oh geez Lisa, why didn't you say that up front?"  Kim rubbed her face and looked down at her friend.  "That is significantly less retarded."

"I probably should have started with that, eh?"

"Uh, yeah."

"God."  Lisa buried her face in her hands.  "I'm not even thinking straight --"

"Ha."

"-- I'm just so nervous!  If I get this part, it could be a really big deal."

"Okay, that makes sense," Kim said.  "I guess you have to do that kind of stuff when you're an actor."

Lisa looked back up at her.  "So you'll do it?"

Kim grimaced.  "I didn't say that."

"Come on!"  Lisa squeezed Kim's knees.  "Kim, this is such a huge deal I can't even describe it.  And you're the only one I can trust with this.  Can you imagine if I asked Tara, or Lauren?"

Kim thought for a minute.  "Uh, no.  No I cannot."

"See?  You have to help me.  Please?"  Lisa clasped her hands together and looked beseechingly up at Kim.

Kim sighed and rolled her eyes skyward.  "If I say yes, will you get off the floor and let go of me?"

"Yes!"  Lisa bounced up and threw her arms around Kim's neck for a quick hug.  "Oh, thank you so much!  Come by my house after band practice, okay?"  And then she was off.

"Wait, today?" Kim asked, suddenly panicked, but Lisa was already gone.


-----


Kim stood outside Lisa's house.  "This is weird..." she mumbled to herself.  Why had she thought she liked Lisa enough for this?  After stalling for a few more minutes, she sighed and knocked on the door.

"Hello, Kim!" Lisa's mother said when she answered the door.

"Hey, Mrs. Miller," Kim said, and had to suppress the weirdest urge to blurt out, 'I'm about to make out with your daughter!'

"Lisa's in her room, you can go on up," Mrs. Miller said.

"Right, thanks."  Kim tried not to wince -- that would've been kind of hard to explain -- and headed up the stairs.  Lisa's door was closed, and she carefully pushed it open.

Lisa was sitting on her bean bag chair, nervously jiggling her leg, but she hopped up when she saw Kim.  "Kim, hey!  I was beginning to wonder when you'd show up."

"It's not --"  Okay, maybe she had spent too much time loitering in front of the house.  She closed the door behind her.  "Yeah, well, I'm here now."

"Awesome!"  Lisa walked over to the bed and sat down, then patted the space next to her.

Kim raised an eyebrow.  "The bed?  Really?  Could you have thought of a less appropriate place to practice making out?"

Lisa rolled her eyes.  "There's not exactly all that many flat surfaces in here.  We could go to the school and hide under the bleachers if you want."

"Haha."  Kim dropped her bag on the floor and sat on the bed, leaning against the headboard.  Lisa stretched out next to her.  "So..."

"So..." Lisa echoed.  They stared at each other.  "Sorry, I just realized I have no idea what I'm doing," Lisa said.

"It's just kissing," Kim said.  Then, with an unexpected burst of courage, she said, "Watch," and kissed Lisa.  And it was not, she realized, totally awful.

After a few moments, Lisa suddenly pulled back.  "Geez, Kim," she said.

Kim tried to focus on the change in position, which was a little hard with her head buzzing.  "What?"

"You're kinda..."  Lisa bit her bottom lip, then said, "You're really getting into it, eh?"

"You..."  Kim blinked, then pushed herself up.  "You -- you said you wanted to make out!  You didn't say 'kiss' or anything, you said 'make out.'  I'm just doing what you said!"

"No, that's cool!" Lisa said quickly.  "It-it's good!  I guess I just wanted to make sure we're on the same page.  I mean, I did say that."

"This was a stupid idea," Kim muttered.

"No, come on!  I mean, this is exactly why I need to practice, right?"  She chuckled self-consciously and said, "Hell, maybe you should be the actress."

"I'm leaving," Kim said, and made to stand.

"No!"  Lisa grabbed onto the closest part of Kim, which happened to be her skirt.  "I'm sorry, okay?  I'll shut up.  Just, don't even listen to me."

Kim sighed, but sat back down and leaned against the pillows.  Lisa was looking downwards and running her hands nervously across the bedspread.  She glanced up at Kim, who just quirked an eyebrow.  She might be willing to do this for Lisa, but there was no way she was making the first move after that.

Lisa shuffled closer and carefully brought her lips to Kim's.  She really wasn't half-bad at this, no matter what she said about practicing.  For the next few minutes, Kim wasn't aware of much but the feeling of Lisa beside her, and Lisa's lips on her own.

Lisa eventually pulled back again, looking a little flushed.  "H-how was that?" she asked.

"That was fine," Kim said distantly.  "It was good.  I don't know what you're worried about."

"Oh.  Well."  Lisa nestled a little closer.  "It is a really important part."

"You may have mentioned that."

"Yeah.  I'd just feel better with a little practice, you know?"

"Well, that's what I'm here for," Kim pointed out.

"Mm-hm," Lisa said, and kissed her again.


-----


Kim was sitting on her bed when a vaguely yellowish blur suddenly tackled her, knocking her off the side.  "AUGH WHAT THE HELL?!"

"I got the part!" the blur screeched in Lisa's voice.

"Oh my god!" Kim yelled, trying desperately to twist her left leg into a more natural position.

"I know, I'm so excited!"

"Yeah, congratulations or whatever, but god Lisa, can't you call like a normal person?"  Kim finally righted her leg and pushed Lisa off her.  "Or find some way to let me know that doesn't involve maiming me?"

"Oh, whatever, you grump."  Lisa bounced excitedly.  "I'm excited, and nothing's going to change that!"

"Yeah, no, you're right, it's really cool."  Kim gave up on massaging the soreness out of her knee and turned to give Lisa a genuine smile.  "Seriously, congrats.  You totally deserve it."

Lisa beamed.  "Thanks!  Of course, I couldn't have done it without you."  There wasn't exactly a lot of room between the wall and the bed, but she squeezed a little closer to Kim anyway.

"No kidding," Kim teased.  "So, is your character really going to have to make out with other girls?"

"Nah, they said they're not really going that direction with the character after all."

Kim looked at Lisa, and Lisa looked back.  "What?" Kim asked, but Lisa just gave her a bland smile.  Kim opened her mouth, closed it, and thought for a while.  Then she said, "You were totally holding out on me, weren't you?"

"Not even!" Lisa cried, but she was grinning much too widely for Kim to trust her completely.  "Seriously, sometimes they just do stuff like that.  It's the name of the game, Kim!"

"Yeah, okay, whatever," Kim said, rolling her eyes skyward.

"Oh, come on!  It was good practice, and it wasn't even that bad, ya whiner.  Right?"  When Kim didn't answer, Lisa nudged her in the shoulder.  "Right?"

"Fine, fine, you weren't a totally terrible kisser," Kim admitted, making an exaggerated 'Why me?' face.

"You weren't so bad yourself!" Lisa said, and laughed.  "Man, I'm so excited.  I'm super pumped.  I have all this energy now.  Do you want to go do something?  We should do something."

"Like, celebrate?" Kim asked.

"Totally!"  Lisa hopped to her feet and held out her hands.  "My treat, even."

Kim grabbed her hands and let herself be pulled to her feet.  "Well, how can I turn down an invitation like that?"
Just because something isn't written to be completely ridiculous doesn't mean it's not crack. I really can't explain this one, but it was fun.

The Lisa that stands out most clearly in my head is the hyperactively babbling and flirty version from when she ran into Scott in the mall in volume 4. So, there you go.

Oh God. You are so good at making me like these couples, I swear.

This is just such a cute experience between friends, but kind of a bit more than that, but not really. I'm sure that makes less sense than I want it to, but basically, I really like this. This moment for the two totally make sense and it's just lovely to read about this kind of first kiss experience. More as an "experiment" but feeling like it's a little more than that, but not going too far with it either.

I really like both girls' reactions to the moment. Kim's sudden courage, Lisa's pulling back, then Kim letting Lisa make the next first move. It just had a nice, natural progression to it all. It just feels nice. It's not a heavy sudden realization of love, nor something insignificant, just somewhere in the middle. It seemed like they both liked it more than they thought they would, but they're not going to jump into anything. It's just lovely.

Good job! And damn you for making me add yet another thing to draw to my list!

Do you see what I mean about not having an OTP? There's so many great possibilities.

I really did want to write something that was somewhere between true love and "This doesn't count anyway." Sometimes it's fun exploring the space in between extremes.

I do like Lisa as a character (which isn't saying much because I like all the characters, but you know). It was fun trying to think of a way to fit her and Kim's personalities together, and also to think about how their teenage selves might behave differently together than their older selves would around other people. I just wanted it to be a nice moment between them.

And I know you're busy, but I regret nothing! Mwahaha! :mwahaha:

That was pretty much my constant refrain in volume 4.

you and me both. Though I will say it's (mostly) a good thing she showed up at that mall, else scott would probably have ended up doing something (especially) stupid.

Was a little skeptical at first but I think this one came out really well considering the two characters. I'm surprised you got them to work together this well, so congrats! Definitely entertaining crack. ^_^

I'm entertaining the hell out of myself pairing Kim up with various characters. I'm glad it's not coming out as too random.

Good job! You chose two characters with very opposite personalities and put them together well. I think you balanced Kim's harshness and support of Lisa very well, I think you kept her character very true to the books.

Well hey there! It's been a while. How are you?

Careful and repeated readings of the books has led me to believe that while Kim's a very sarcastic person naturally, a lot of her outward annoyance has to do with Scott, so it's not quite as bad when he's not around. And she seemed genuinely happy and excited to get to hang out with Lisa in volume 4, so I thought it could work.

I'm great, how are you?

I noticed Kim's enthusiasm to hang with Kim too, especially when they were all at Sneaky Dee's (even though Scott WAS there at the time) in volume 4. I also think that Kim, despite the sort of front she puts up, feels things very deeply and is also always there to back up the people she cares about (like the good luck kiss for Scott in volume 6 and her coaching him through confronting NegaScott, those were moments when her character really shone through, I think). I think you had a good eye for that throughout the books, and you made it work perfectly! Also, I liked the moment where Lisa backed off from the kissing and noted how far it was going. I thought that was a good moment; she always had this air of innocence (at least from my perspective) and I think it's impressive you included that as well. Anyway, great job!

I'm writing again, so it's all good!

Quintessential Kim for me is in volume 4 when Scott's looking for a job and wanders into No-Account Video. Kim looks happy and relaxed while she's talking to Jason, then she sees Scott and goes straight to annoyed. Then she snarks at him a bit, then she goes out and gets him the job he was looking for. Her bark is worse than her bite.

Yay! Can't wait to read more of your stuff!

Exactly! I didn't think of that, but that scene is a perfect example of "Quintessential Kim."

I am so stoked! I'm going on a weekend trip and I'm leaving in an hour. I decided one more quick look at my DA and LJ accounts couldn't hurt and I found this gem!

I like it! It's so silly and ultimately pointless in makes me want to hug my pillow to death. ... ... ... Upon reflection that would be a very girly thing to do. So I wont hug a pillow; I'll drink beer in a very manly fashion and think happy fannon thoughts!

Thanks for a fun memory for the long trip!

Yay for fun memories! And just this once, I will give you special permission to hug your pillow to death without losing any manliness points. :D
