I’ve interviewed Tiberius before, but apparently not Catessa. That’s interesting. I’ll have to fix that soon. But anyway, today I’m going to interview the two of them together, as a couple. I really enjoyed diving back into The Last Assassin, and their relationship. They’re so much fun together and they’re so close to #relationshipgoals for me. XD I hope you enjoy their interview as much as I did!
Both: *come in and sit*
Interviewer: Welcome! How are you two today?
Tiberius: Doing well. *smiles*
Catessa: *nods* I’m good.
Interviewer: Are y’all ready to get started?
Interviewer: What are your names?
Tiberius: Tiberius Alister.
Catessa: Catessa Devlen.
Tiberius: *glances at her, surprised she chose to use that particular surname*
Interviewer: How long have you two known each other?
Tiberius: Two months, I think? Roughly?
Catessa: You’ve been keeping track?
Tiberius: *chuckles* Only a little.
Interviewer: How did you meet?
Catessa: *smirks* He called be beautiful and got my dagger pressed against his throat.
Tiberius: *grins* I did. And then she matched me strike-for-strike in a knife-throwing contest.
Catessa: *her smile spreads into a grin* So I did. And then, unfortunately, our fun was cut short as I had some business to attend to.
Interviewer: I suppose you’ve mostly answered my next question, then. Did you like each other when you first met?
Tiberius: Definitely. She was intriguing, beautiful, skilled… *catches a playful look from Catessa* And still is.
Catessa: *chuckles* He was bold, mildly arrogant, unwisely flirtatious, and surprisingly graceful.
Interviewer: What are your favorite things about each other?
Catessa: He’s fun and audacious, but also encouraging and serious when he needs to be.
Tiberius: She’s… thoughtful, I suppose. And real. She’s skilled, but she knows there’s room for improvement, and she generally doesn’t esteem herself too highly or too low.
Interviewer: What is your favorite thing to do together?
Catessa: Throwing in some chocolate muffins doesn’t hurt anything, either. *grins*
Tiberius: No it doesn’t.
Interviewer: How would each of you describe your relationship?
Tiberius: *turns to Catessa* Ladies first.
Catessa: *chuckles* Well… Fun. Challenging. Uplifting, I guess, for lack of a better word.
Tiberius: *smiles* Like she said, fun and challenging. It’s a relationship that encourages growth, in both of us, I think.
Catessa: *nods* Definitely. That’s mostly what I was going for with “uplifting.”
Interviewer: What are your love languages, and how do you show affection to each other?
Catessa: I’m pretty sure my love language must be teasing. *laughs* That’s mostly how Tiberius and I show affection to each other. We tease each other to no end. *grins at Tiberius*
Tiberius: *nods, grinning* We tease each other, we challenge each other, we encourage each other. I’m not sure what my love language is, but I’d guess it’s spending time with someone.
Interviewer: What’s your favorite memory together?
Tiberius: Well, we already mentioned the chocolate muffins… *chuckles* She bought us chocolate muffins one time and wouldn’t give me one until I beat her in a game of cards, except she’s better than me at cards. Or maybe just better at cheating. *glances at her with a grin*
Catessa: *eyes twinkle*
Tiberius: Anyway, she won, of course, and I had to snatch the muffin on my own.
Catessa: You picked the boring one to share. *crosses her arms and rolls her eyes away from him, smirking* But both of them are great memories.
Interviewer: What’s the most embarrassing story you two have together?
Tiberius: Does the fact that when we got muffins that time and came back to my ship, it was after I’d told one of my crew members I wasn’t going to see Catessa? *chuckles* In my defense, I really hadn’t been planning on it.
Catessa: I’m not sure I buy that. You were the one who started talking to me, not the other way around.
Tiberius: Well once I saw you I decided I might as well hang out with you again. But that wasn’t my goal when I first left for the square.
Catessa: *snorts* Suuuuure.
Tiberius: *rolls his eyes with a chuckle*
Interviewer: If you could each do one thing for the other, what would you do?
Catessa: I’d help him polish up his Pleside. His footwork is a bit clumsy. *smirks*
Tiberius: *shrugs* Anytime. I’m sure my men would enjoy watching us dance again. *chuckles* *his expression becomes more serious* I’d help you clean up the mess you made so you can forgive yourself. *smiles softly*
Catessa: *smiles back* Thanks.
Interviewer: What are some of your shared hobbies?
Catessa: *gestures to Tiberius* You want to say?
Tiberius: Sure. Cards, dancing, swordplay, knife-throwing… Those are the main things.
Interviewer: Where is your favorite place to go, hang out, or explore together?
Catessa: The Speed Demon. His ship. *turns to Tiberius* Right?
Tiberius: *nods* That’s what I’d say.
Interviewer: Who was your first girlfriend or boyfriend, for each of you?
Catessa: My guildmate, Roth. He and I were together for a long time.
Tiberius: Until Catessa, I actually never had a girlfriend. There was one girl I thought I might build a relationship with, but then I became a pirate and by the time I visited home the first time she was married, so… that clearly didn’t work out.
Catessa: *turns to him* Really? I would have expected all the girls would be dying to be with you. *there’s only a hint of teasing in her voice*
Tiberius: *chuckles* When I left home I was still a gawky seventeen-year-old. I guess a few girls have probably had interest in me since then, but I wasn’t really looking for anyone. *shrugs*
Interviewer: Well, that was it. *grins* Thank you so much for your time.
Tiberius: *stands and shakes the interviewer’s hand* Absolutely. Thank you.
Interviewer: Oh, it was my pleasure. *grins*
Catessa: *shakes the interviewer’s hand with a smile before she and Tiberius leave*
