Well hullo! This was an enjoyable read, it's nice to see another potential couple forming. I like how their interactions were more about establishing companionship than the mushy-gushy stuff. Their bantering and Aeria's hovering between being shy and sassy kept the thread entertaining.
There were a few blips, and I only bring them up because they were a bit distracting. Mwn, you've got extra quotation marks showing up after closing quotes and at the ends of sentences. Perhaps it's just an odd formatting thing.
“It’s such a clear night. This is why I love getting out of the city! Do you ever wonder what it’d be like to go up into those stars? They seem so cold and distant, but I’ve heard that they might be some kind of fire.””
