Rule 63 is a weakness of mine so I wanted to write a quick something but ended up getting carried away T^T Also I know next to nothing about makeup so sorry if I got something wrong. I hope you'll still enjoy it though.


Nagisa couldn’t believe that her first argument with her first ever girlfriend was about makeup. She wasn’t delusional, she knew that there would come a time where they would argue about something. In fact, it was kind of small miracle that this time hadn’t already happened yet considering how different they were. But since they had started dating a month ago, things had been going great. They had gone to many dates, had held hands so much they could trace the outline of the other’s fingers on their skins by heart, and shared so many kisses they knew all of the chapsticks’ flavors the other owned. It had taken her a bit of persuasion to get her girlfriend to let her spend the night. The first time Nagisa had suggested it, she had blushed hard and had babbled words like “not appropriate” and while she really liked the sound of “engaging in lewd activities”, she would respect her girlfriend’s wishes to “wait for the right moment” whatever that meant. She had had to bring out the big guns. In short, she had made her best puppy look and had whined. She had even come to begging because Nagisa never thought herself above anything to get what she wanted. It had been the perfect timing : summer break was right around the corner, and they would start practicing on weekends. Plus, she knew that her girlfriend’s parents would be on a business trip so no risks there. After around an hour, she had let out a long sigh and finally told her that she could spend the night if she promised to behave and not try anything. Nagisa had been so overjoyed that she hadn’t even pretended not to understand what she meant by that, and swore on her life that she wouldn’t make any move on her. Just this time. They had laughed, cooked together, showered separately, and cuddled on the couch watching some movie. When her girlfriend had deemed it was bedtime, she had turned the tv off and was way too tired to argue with her whether “not appropriate” included sleeping in the same bed or not, and so, they had fallen asleep in each other’s arms.

Even the morning had been going good : waking up cuddling, laughing at each other’s hair, and pancakes.

Really, Nagisa should have known this wasn’t meant to last. It had started when her girlfriend had went to her dressing table and had pulled out so many different makeup products she didn’t even know the purpose of, let alone their names. She had left out a whistling and and had gotten closer.

“Wow, you have so many products, Rei-chan.”

“It’s just the amount I need for my makeup routine.”

Nagisa had started examining the nearest sticks.

“They all look so fancy. I don’t see why you would need half of them, Rei-chan. You’re already so beautiful.”

She had blushed.

“Thank you, Nagisa-chan. The truth is that I’m fascinated by all of those creations, they’re so beautiful. With just a few products and techniques they can completely change someone’s appearance and I’d love to be able to do the same one day.”

“Oh ! So Rei-chan wants to be a professional makeup artist ?”

She anxiously had looked around the room.

“Well, maybe ? I don’t know I just think that makeup is an art easily accessible. It should be respected as such.”

“So cool, Rei-chan.”

She had cleared her throat.

“So, aren’t you getting ready yourself ? We have to go in thirty minutes.”

“Yeah, yeah just a minute.”

Nagisa had reached for her bag and had gotten out her own makeup palettes.

Seconds later, a scream had pierced her ears. Her girlfriend had had the most horrified look on her face and had been pointing at her hands. Nagisa had looked down at her Hello Kitty palettes and had lifted them to make sure she had the right guess.

“What is it, Rei-chan ? Ah ! Wanna take a look ?”

“Nagisa-chan ! Do not tell me that it’s what you use to do your makeup !”

Nagisa had just looked at her.

“Well, yes. I’ve been using them since primary school. Granted, at first it was just to play but by middle school I had gotten used to it so I just kept going on with these ones. They’re actually pretty nice.”

Her girlfriend had been shaking her head so hard Nagisa had feared she would hear a snap.

“Nagisa-chan. Those things aren’t makeup. They can barely qualify as paint.”

Normally, the venom in Rei’s voice for something she considered trivial would have made her smile but this time, she had felt personally attacked and that’s probably why she had shoot back a dry “I bet you that my paint is better than your fancy things.”

After that, everything had escalated quickly. In under ten minutes, they had come to terms that what really mattered weren’t products but skills and as such, a challenge of skills was on : in the ten minutes they had left before leaving, they would try to get the usual results with the other’s makeup set.

Two minutes in, Nagisa already regretted everything. It didn’t take long after starting to calm herself for the sheer stupidity of it all to dawn on her. Makeup wasn’t important, but her pride wouldn’t allow her to apologize and her competitive spirit was pushing her into winning. She once again looked at all of the products displayed in front of her. She figured she should use some kind of base but hell if she knew which one. She had heard other girls talking about skin tone and numbers and as someone who had only used one set of makeup her whole life, she didn’t know which one to choose.

She looked at her girlfriend who was examining her palettes attentively, rubbing some of the powder with her fingertips, applying it on the back of her opposite hand and humming pensively at the results.


She hummed in response.

“This palette is actually just eye shadows.”

She blushed furiously and started babbling.

“Of course, I knew it ! I was just… appalled by the low quality. You shouldn’t put on those things, Nagisa-chan. They will end up ruining your skin, you know !”

Nagisa left out a giggle.

“I’m so happy that Rei-chan worries so much about me.”

“Of course idiot ! We’re going out and as your girlfriend I want to protect you.”

“From a bad skin ?”

“Skin products are very costly you know. And you shouldn’t disregard skin care. Besides you have such a beautiful and smooth skin.”

“...Does that mean that Rei-chan likes touching me ?”

Her girlfriend had finally let go of the palette to look at her with a furious blush.

“ Stop saying such shameless things ! I merely appreciate beauty and your skin is beautiful.”

Nagisa laughed.

“Of course, Rei-chan.”

After a moment, she started out again.

“Hey, Rei-chan, let’s forget about this challenge. It’s stupid after all. I’m sure you’re skills are on point and besides -”

She smirked.

“- I wouldn’t want you to ruin your beautiful skin either.”

For good measure, she planted a kiss on her cheek and offered her a dazzling smile.

Rei embarrassingly put her glasses back in place, and cleared her throat.

“Well, you have a point Nagisa-chan. It is pretty ridiculous. And we better get going or Gou will have our heads.”

Nagisa laughed again.

“Ok, so let’s both get our makeup back and hurry up.”

“Actually, Nagisa-chan ?”

“Yes ?”

“Would you mind if I did your makeup ? For skin care purposes.”

Nagisa took her girlfriend’s hand and squeezed it.

“I’d love that.”

This is EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED!! Ah, this is too adorable; I love the setup of this, with the innocent sleepover, just enjoying each other's company and being in the same space. Your reasons for Rei having them makeup and skin care collection that she does are exactly in line with my own so I have to commend your characterization. And I absolutely love Nagisa in this; I cringed when she said she's been using the same makeup since she was in elementary school (those things expire! And they're basically chalk!) Rei swatching the eyeshadow on the back of her hand was a stroke of brilliance, a great opening for these two to talk. I loved all of this, thank you so, so much for making my first filled prompt so great ♥

Thank you so much for your kind words !! I thought that this prompt was very cute and wanted to do it justice !

At first, I was a little preoccupied by the makeup side of this but I figured that with writing Nagisa as someone as clueless about this world as me I could make it work. Also I've also thought of Rei as someone who would take good care of himself in general and with his 'beautiful' policy I just figured that he'd be very interested in makeup because the results can truly be amazing.

I'm so glad that you loved it ^o^

i also had to take a stab at this prompt it was just too cute


Nagisa’s makeup drawer is nothing short of Rei’s worst nightmare. It’s a visual cacophony of color -- eyeshadow palettes that look at least five years old, costume lipsticks in bright, garish shades, errant makeup brushes, and an overall lack of organization that is sending chills down Rei’s spine.

“You live like this?” Rei squeaks.

She looks over at Nagisa, who’s perched on the edge of her bed, looking very nonchalant, “I don’t really wear much makeup! It would all come off in the pool anyway.”

“That’s why I wash my face before practice,” Rei says, “However, even if I didn’t, my setting spray would keep my makeup on even underwater.”

“Your what?”

“Never mind,” Rei grimaces, reaching into the drawer, rummaging around for some primer, “You do use primer, right?”

“Of course! I’m not an animal.”

That’s debatable, Rei thinks, examining a tube of lipstick that might be older than she is.

The issue at hand is this: after enduring Nagisa’s endless badgering about how long Rei takes to do her makeup, Rei had spent a good hour explaining to Nagisa the importance of the ritual of her makeup routine, the significance of every step, the overall organization, the beauty of it all. Nagisa had understood about half of it, insisting that her own five-minute makeup routine was more than sufficient.

Now, they were both out to prove a point. Rei would do her best to make Nagisa up using the blonde girl’s drawer of nightmares, and Nagisa would do Rei’s face using Rei’s collection of obviously-superior products.

Now, Rei was starting to think she was in a bit over her head.

“Ooh, I like that shade!” Nagisa is pointing to a glittering pink in the small Hello Kitty eyeshadow palette Rei has selected. It’s the only shade that isn’t cracked and powdery.

“I’m only going to use this for an accent color,” Rei says, returning to her task of moisturizing Nagisa’s face. For someone who doesn’t have an established skincare routine, her face is remarkably soft, firm and smooth under Rei’s fingers. She wonders absentmindedly if the rest of Nagisa is quite so soft and inviting--

--and then promptly chokes on her own tongue.

“You good?” Nagisa looks down at Rei with her baby blue eyes, and all Rei can manage is a curt nod.

“I-I just realized you don’t have any usable makeup brushes,” she says, clearing her throat, “I hope you don’t mind me using my fingers.”

“Nope!” Nagisa chirps, “Finger away!”

“That’s not-- nevermind,” Rei feels a headache coming on. Nagisa has absolutely no idea the effect she has on other people.

Still, Nagisa is a compliant client, closing her eyes and pouting her lips when asked. Rei keeps her makeup natural, doing her best to blend the cherry-red blush into a softer pink, dabbing a soft, glittery eyeshadow on Nagisa’s face as a makeshift highlight. The only good lipstick Nagisa has is a bright red (no lip liner, of course) and Rei swipes it over the swell of Nagisa’s plump bottom lip, chewing on her own lips in concentration.

“You look awfully serious Rei-chan,” Nagisa says as Rei puts on the finishing touches.

“I am simply concentrating,” Rei says, pushing up her glasses, “It’s hard to work with these products. Plus, trying to accent your natural beauty without overshadowing it can be difficult.”

Nagisa goes pink -- or, is that just the blush? -- and nods, “Whatever you say, Rei-chan.”


Rei is far less accommodating as Nagisa sets about doing her makeup.

“Your makeup collection is huge Rei-chan!” Nagisa rummages through Rei’s make-up carrier, marveling at each product. Rei doesn’t tell her that it’s only her travel set, and that her real collection is much larger, “I don’t even know what half this stuff is for! It’s so fancy!”

“Oh, I just got that one in from Korea,” Rei says, gesturing to the bottle Nagisa is holding, “The formula is quite revolutionary… it’s fascinating, really, to see the new innovations people come up with. I’ve read a lot about the processes.”

Nagisa giggles, “I’m sure you have. Rei-chan is so smart.”

“I don’t mean--” Rei blushes, “I just like to be informed.”

“Sure, sure.”

Nagisa as a makeup artist is… interesting, to say the least. She does her best, examining each tube and pencil and palette with her tongue bitten between her teeth and her brow screwed up in concentration.

Rei attempts to interrupt Nagisa when she goes to use blush as eyeshadow, but Nagisa cuts her off, “Let me do my thing! I’m learning, Rei-chan!”

So Rei just lets allows herself to watch Nagisa, unabashed. She doesn’t often have much of an excuse to do so, at least, not without Gou or Makoto teasing her about it. The wave of affection she feels every time she looks at Nagisa is both unfamiliar and interesting to Rei. But, unfortunately, there are no books she can read that will elucidate for her the ins-and-outs of having a crush.

“Hmm… I’m really bad at putting on lipstick,” Nagisa cocks her head to the side, admiring her handy-work. She had given up on the false eyelashes, and the attempt at eyeliner was pretty good but not great. Now, she’s not eager to ruin her makeup attempt with poorly-applied lipstick.

“Lip liner is a big help, you will essentially be drawing within the lines-- mmphht--”

Rei is cut off when Nagisa plants a kiss squarely on her lips, quick and chaste but unmissable. Rei barely even has time to admire how soft and pliant Nagisa’s lips are, or how the lipstick makes her taste like apples.

“Nailed it!” Nagisa pumps her fist, grabbing her hand mirror and holding it up. Rei gets a good look at just how bright red and dumbstruck she looks. Her lips are a pale red, the lipstick from Nagisa’s lips having transferred onto her own during the kiss.

“That is…” Rei’s voice cracks, “Th-That is not a proper method for applying lipstick!!”

Nagisa only shrugs, smiling slyly, “I like doing things my own way. Do I win?”

Rei has to cover her face to keep Nagisa from teasing her about the extensive blush coloring her cheeks and spreading down her neck.

“Yes. You win.”

“Of course! I’m not an animal.”

That’s debatable, Rei thinks, examining a tube of lipstick that might be older than she is.

This is perfect. Perfect, perfect, perfect. I love the fact that you're not afraid to give them a more argumentative, competitive tone with one another. And Rei's mind going inappropriate places, and Nagisa "innocently" helping it along had me giggling.

And the twist ending was phenomenal. Nagisa definitely wins, and I wouldn't be surprised if Rei started using this method to show Nagisa what superior products feel like ;)

OMG this is so cute !! And it was so funny too I laughed a lot :3

I think you really took this prompt to another level with your knowledge in makeup :3

(The makeup talk was Greek to me but it sounded so good T^T I was getting this feeling like "Wow, this person really knows what they're talking about" and it was as fascinating as when I'm watching YouTube videos)

THIS IS ADORABLE! I love their designs, I love the expression on Rei's face as she's trying to make herself apply this blush, she looks utterly miserable. And Nagisa knocking over all the lipsticks accidentally is just hilarious.

The last comic totally stole my heart though. What a Nagisa thing to do! Thank you for this wonderful fill!
