Henry spluttered at the sight of the familiar girl and just shook his head when he heard the name. “Did you forget that your name is Jaqueefian? I thought we established that the first time!” He was trying to keep on joking, but also couldn’t help the red that tinted his face. “Oh my god.” Either way he managed to laugh, but also covered his face. “Jaqueefian please, Dave’s chinchilla is right here. Think of the rodents!”

Harper perked up and grinned “The rodent! of course! I’ll hold that” she reached down and picked up Puddin’ from Dave’s lap “and I’ll kiss him while you two smooch, get ready the ball’s dropping!!” She exclaimed while pointing at the TV.

Still super red, and very embarrassed by Harper, Dave stuttered a bit then looked at the TV. He tapped Henry a bit to get his attention then stood up, looking around for Raiden.

The Raichu came around with a tray of champagne glasses and handed them out to everyone, even Henry and Harper. 

There it goes and everyone starts chanting “10…9…8…7…-“

"Girl? Did Raiden get a girlfriend or something?" Henry glanced down at the chinchilla, reaching out with his free hand to pet it a little. He pulled his hand back and looked over at Chuck and then Dave for an answer.

Chuck nearly choked on his spit and took a minute to look away while he tried to hold back his laughter. He looked back while chuckling “No, no she’s just an old friend of his, She—” He was cut off by the sound of loud footsteps and voices and banging at the door. He cocked his head in that direction then shouted “GET YOUR ASSES IN HERE ALREADY”

In stumbled Raiden. “‘Eeeeyyyyy sorry for bein’ tardy to tha party. Wicked snow pile up on tha roads out there. Oh hey, it’s Dave’s lil buddy. Why don’t ya stay the night, I’d feel bad sendin’ you out in that shit” He gave a crooked smile but then was pushed by a smaller girl

“‘Eeeyyyy dickweeds ready to rock the new year?!~” In charmed Harper sporting a sweater given to her by Dave.

Dave perked up and waved “Hey there! Glad you can make it! Harper this is my boyfriend, Henry. Henry this is Harper”

Harper blinked then grinned wide hopping over to the two “oh gosh Jaqueefian you never told me lil bo peep was your boyfriend how cute you guys gonna kiss when the ball drops? Let me guess you’re sleeping in Dave’s bed” she stopped and gasped then lowered herself to their ear level and whispered ” are you gonna frickle frackle~” She wriggled her eyebrows until Dave belted out with his face a deep red “HARPER NO”

Dave’s eyes widened a bit and ears lifted up. A small amount of static came off of him as his face flushed a light red and he looked back down at the coffee. “That’s right. We can technically call that our first date, right? I-I mean looking back it felt like a date hahah” He laughed slightly nervously but really he was just really flustered. 

"Henry.." His expression softened and he leaned in to wrap an arm around him and pull him close, nuzzling into him a bit. "Thank you, this means so much" His voice nearly cracked a little. was he about to cry? maybe. 

It was a relief to know he liked it. He leaned more into him, and gave him a quick kiss on the cheek. “I’m glad you liked it. Really glad.”  He thought he heard the other’s voice crack and so he reached out to hold his hand. It was kind of crazy knowing he’d been with him for so long, but he was glad they’d met and that he was getting to spend today with him.

Dave regained his composure before any tears were shed but it really did mean a lot to him and he was really happy with his gift, even more so that he’d spend new years with Henry. His face tingled at the kiss on the cheek and he smiled, gently kissing the top of his head.

Chuck snickered glancing over at them then let go of the chinchilla, of which Puddin’ jumped over onto Dave’s lap.

"EEP! Dave jolted up in surprise and glanced over at Chuck, who stuck his tongue out playfully. Dave wrinkled his nose but then looked around "Hey, chuck where’s Raiden?"

Chuck shrugged “Probably still picking up that girl. Hopefully they’ll be on their way, the ball’s about to drop soon.”

Dave nodded and snuggled into Henry, placing his hand on the shuppet’s and petting the chinchilla with his free hand.

Dave pulled out the coffee from the bag and paused a bit. Nearly at the same time Henry talked he asked “Coffee?” But chuckled when they accidentally spoke at the same time. He only giggled even more when looking at him holding his gift. “Go ahead, try it on. Thought it’d be something nice to think of me by”

His smile never left as he looked down at the coffee. “This has more meaning to it doesn’t it?” he speculated. He knew Henry and he could tell this wasn’t just some last minute ‘I don’t know what to get him’ gift.

"It’s great." He quickly pulled it on, straightening it out and looking down at it for a little before giving Dave his attention again. At the question he became a little more flustered, messing with the sleeves of his new sweater. "Yeah, sort of… Um, just when we first met, you know? We went to a cafe and talked for a bit there and so that’s why…" Henry brought his gaze down feeling a little embarrassed.

Dave’s eyes widened a bit and ears lifted up. A small amount of static came off of him as his face flushed a light red and he looked back down at the coffee. “That’s right. We can technically call that our first date, right? I-I mean looking back it felt like a date hahah” He laughed slightly nervously but really he was just really flustered. 

"Henry.." His expression softened and he leaned in to wrap an arm around him and pull him close, nuzzling into him a bit. "Thank you, this means so much" His voice nearly cracked a little. was he about to cry? maybe.

Henry snorted and shook his head at Dave’s joke and then followed him over to the couch. From here he noticed that Chuck was holding Dave’s chinchilla. He took the present that was handed to him and smiled at the other. Honestly he was a little nervous for Dave to get his present. It was good coffee and all, but it was also coffee. Which seemed a little silly to him to give someone, but he also thought it would be nice and had maybe been fretting over if he should’ve gotten Dave something else instead. 

He unwrapped his present while also glancing up at Dave until he managed to get to the clothing inside. A sweater, a Christmas sweater at that. He pulled the entire thing out and then smiled really wide, trying not too laugh. There was a sweater on his sweater. “A sweater sweater?” He looked up at Dave still smiling.

Dave pulled out the coffee from the bag and paused a bit. Nearly at the same time Henry talked he asked “Coffee?” But chuckled when they accidentally spoke at the same time. He only giggled even more when looking at him holding his gift. “Go ahead, try it on. Thought it’d be something nice to think of me by”

Whilst tickling him, he slowly brought him closer and closer until he wrapped his arms around him and held him close, giggling from Henry’s squirminess. With a big doofy grin on his face he said “Really? well you know what is?” without giving him time to answer he leaned in and gave him a tender kiss on the lips.

Henry smiled into the kiss and then wrapped his arms around Dave to give him an actual hug. When he pulled back he definitely felt warmer than when he first got here. “Oh! I brought your present.” He separated from Dave and reached down to where he had left his shoes by the entrance along with the small bag. “I’m just gonna say right now that it’s really cheesy so don’t laugh too much okay?”

Dave stepped back a bit as he pulled apart from their embrace. It left him feeling warm and happy though and there’ll be plenty of time for more of that later. “My gift?” He questioned then watched him retrieve the bag. He paused then snickered. “Is it cheese” he said with a giggle at his horrible joke and took the bag from Henry.

He was almost too excited to open it but decided maybe they should get more comfortable for their gift exchange. “Wait before I open it lets move over to the couch, I have your gift ready too” He smiled and motioned Henry over to the couch with him.

As soon as they sat down and got comfy, Dave passed Henry his present then placed the bag on his lap and shuffled through it to retrieve the contents.

Chuck waved a friendly ‘hello’ to Henry then turned his attention back to petting the chinchilla, an opportunity he didn’t get often

Dave squeaked slightly upon being hugged and smiled warmly, gladly returning the hug but just as soon as he started to enjoy their embrace— “meEEP!! C-COLD!!!” he jumped and scrambled to pull his hands out of his shirt, half laughing-half whining “You butt”

Oh now he was gonna get it. He grinned and bore his fingers like claws then launched them at his sides for intense tickles.

Henry laughed at Dave’s reaction a huge guilty grin on his face. “I had too. It was destiny.” He wasn’t fast enough to stop the other from getting to him and tickling him. “Ah!!” He grabbed at his arms to push them away, failing as he kept on laughing against his will. “This wasn’t—” more laughing, “part of destiny!!”

Whilst tickling him, he slowly brought him closer and closer until he wrapped his arms around him and held him close, giggling from Henry’s squirminess. With a big doofy grin on his face he said “Really? well you know what is?” without giving him time to answer he leaned in and gave him a tender kiss on the lips.

Dave nearly nodded off on the couch with Puddin’ on his lap. Petting a chinchilla was nearly therapeutic and put him in a slight trance until his phone pinged with a new message. He jolted a bit and looked at it. He gasped excitedly and shoved the chinchin into chuck’s lap “here hold this” and hopped off the couch.

He quickly rushed over to the door and opened it to greet the shuppet with a smile “Hey there! Hurry come in, come in, it’s cold out there. You can just leave your shoes at the door” 

He returned the smile, and did as he was told before coming inside. The place was decorated and he spotted Chuck over at the couch. He waved a little in his direction then turned back to look at Dave. Well, it was cold and he wasn’t exactly warmed up, the other wouldn’t mind a hug right? Henry hugged Dave and then with a grin all too mischievous shoved his cold hands under the mareep’s clothes. 

Chuck waved a friendly ‘hello’ to Henry then turned his attention back to petting the chinchilla, an opportunity he didn’t get often

Dave squeaked slightly upon being hugged and smiled warmly, gladly returning the hug but just as soon as he started to enjoy their embrace— “meEEP!! C-COLD!!!” he jumped and scrambled to pull his hands out of his shirt, half laughing-half whining “You butt”

"Love you too! See you in a bit." Henry hefted himself up from the couch and over to his room. He put on some more acceptable clothes, because as comfortable as those sweat pants were it just didn’t seem right to wear them to a party. When he was more decent looking he grabbed Dave’s present and his keys and left the apartment to make his way to the mareep’s home.

After some walking he found himself at the place and knocked on the door and for good measure, shooting a quick text to Dave to tell him he was outside.

Dave nearly nodded off on the couch with Puddin’ on his lap. Petting a chinchilla was nearly therapeutic and put him in a slight trance until his phone pinged with a new message. He jolted a bit and looked at it. He gasped excitedly and shoved the chinchin into chuck’s lap “here hold this” and hopped off the couch.

He quickly rushed over to the door and opened it to greet the shuppet with a smile “Hey there! Hurry come in, come in, it’s cold out there. You can just leave your shoes at the door”

He had a confused look on his face when all he heard was heavy breathing on the other end, but then the mareep’s excited voice came through and he grinned to himself as he listened. Christmas present? Well, that meant a good a time as any to bring Dave’s present with him when he went over then. Hopefully he’d like it. It was pretty simple, but yeah. 

"Oh? Yeah, that sounds great and I’ll bring your present too!"

Dave bounced in his bed a little bit excitedly “Awesome! I can’t wait to see you! Hurry over then. I love you, bye!”

After hanging up he hopped out of bed and skipped over to his closet. He pulled out some wrapping paper deciding to last minute wrap the box containing the gift since he’d neglected to do so before hand oops.

Moments later, the box was neatly wrapped and he tied a fancy bow on it for good measure. 

With a deep breath, he was ready to go downstairs and wait for the shuppet to arrive. He stood up and walked over to the Chinchilla cage “Might as well bring you out to hang too” He pulled Puddin’ out of the cave and cradled him in one arm and carried the gift with the other then made his way to the couch downstairs to wait.

shadepuppet:

Henry’d been hanging out alone in the living room, watching whatever movies were currently playing, but mostly messing around with games that he had on his phone. Jack had gone back home for Christmas, which made sense. Henry had packed him up with all the Christmas presents he’d gotten for everybody back there, so it’d just been him for a a week now? Yeah, that seemed about right. He was pulled away from his game just when a name flashed across the screen of his phone and his ringtone started playing. The happy smile that followed definitely had nothing to do with the fact that it was Dave calling. Nope, not at all. He answered and brought the phone to his ear.

"Hello?"

Dave sat there for a bit breathing heavily into the phone then took a deep breath “Henry! Hey! uh, the guys and I are throwing a little New Years Eve party and I wanted to know if you wanted to come over and watch the ball drop with us!”

His grin couldn’t possibly get any bigger. He really missed Henry. A thought crossed his mind when he glanced over at a box in his room “OH! um.. I also have something for you. It’s your Christmas gift”

He just realized he talked too fast for the shuppet to really answer his question so he paused and fiddled with a fold in the sheets while he waited for him to reply.

Dave rushed down the stairs wearing one of his favorite christmas sweaters and one of those tacky sparkly top hats that said “Happy new year” on it. Quickly he turned the corner and skid across the kitchen floor in his socks. “Heya, anything I can help with?” He asked the jolteon in the room.

Chuck chuckled and raised an eyebrow “I don’t think I’ve ever seen you this excited. I think Raiden and I got it. Snacks are all out, got the TV on the news, decorations up.” He thought for a moment “Hey, why don’t you see if your boyfriend would like to come over.”

Dave flushed a light pink and tensed up in surprise “R-really?”

"Suuure it’s the New Year! Raiden’s inviting someone over too. the more the merrier" chuck smiled.

With a nod, the mareep shined a giddy grin and bolted back upstairs where he left his phone. He divebombed onto the bed to grab the phone and excitedly scrolled through the contacts. Henry. Just seeing his name still filled his stomach with butterflies.

He was a bit out of breath though from his mad dash. He gave himself a moment to calm his breathing then dialed the number.

Doooot……Doooooot..
