Two players, each roleplaying someone in a long-term romantic partnership. First, collectively create a thematically varied playlist of songs about relationships. Then, tell the story of your initial meeting, in character, like you are telling it to someone else at a party. Write “first meeting” on a sheet of paper and have an out-of-character conversation about your feelings about the scene. Collectively write a short description of it. Press shuffle on your playlist. Listen to the first song, occasionally making eye contact with the other player. When it finishes, roleplay a brief moment in the life of the characters’ relationship, with the song as inspiration. Let these questions guide you: -Where are we? What are we doing? -How much time has passed since the last scene? -What has changed? -What are our conflicts? Our joys? When the scene ends, write down a name for it. Have an out-of-character conversation about the scene. Collectively write a short description of it. Repeat until the playlist ends or you reach a logical conclusion. When you finish, read what you have written. Then, take turns looking the other person in the eye, asking “Who am I to you,” and answering that question in character.
