Odd, I find Princess Bubblegum and Prince Gumball as the only genderswap/original character pairing that works, probably because the other couples I support are either swap/swap or original/original.
Prince Gumball was standing in front of his phone, ruminating as he stared at Princess Bubblegum's phone number.
He continuously reached for the phone, but drew back before he grabbed it.
"Do it." Marshall Lee urged
"I will." Gumball replied
"You just pick up the phone and dial." Marshall said
"Don't rush me!" PG uttered
"Look, Prince Pinky," Marshall asserted "when a girl gives you the green light, you go!"
"I know." Prince Gumball groaned
"Well then," Marshall Lee said "red light, yellow light, green light...go!"(Def Leppard reference)
He started hovering aeound the room.
"Why are you here again?" PG questioned
"Well we all knew this situation was coming," the vampire informed "and Fionna was certain you'd choke or chicken out, so she told me to help you."
"You pretty much do whatever Fionna tells you to do, don't you?" Prince Gumball responded
"Don't try and change the subject." Marshall said
"You're gonna help me?" Prince Gumball retorted dubiously
"Of course...think of me as your wingman." Marshall Lee said
"I understand you have a thousand years of experience," PG said "but I just don't see how you could possibly help me."
"Case in point," Marshall Lee said "here's step one."
He picked up PG's phone.
"What are you doing?" the prince questioned
Marshall Lee said nothing as he dialled the phone.
He listened to it ring.
"Hey, Princess Bubblegum," he said, as she picked up on the other end "what's happening girl?"
"No," PG responded frantically "you can't!"
"Yes this is Marshall Lee," the vampire boy spoke casually, ignoring Gumball's protests while listening to PB talk "how have you been?"
"Put the phone down!" Prince Gumball ordered, chasing Marshall Lee around in vain as he flew around the room with the prince's phone
"Yeah," Marshall Lee said to Princess Bubblegum "Bubba was wondering if you would like to come over and...hang out in his lab."
"You suck!" Prince Gumball whined
"What's that?" Marshall responded to Princess Bubblegum "Oh, you wanna talk to him?"
Marshall Lee shoved the phone to Prince Gumball's ear.
"Here ya go." he said
"You son of a-" PG responded irritatedly
"Gumball?" Princess Bubblegum voiced puzzledly
"Ah!" Prince Gumball uttered "Hi Bubblegum."
"So you do still have my phone number," she said "I was beginning to think you forgot about me."
"What?" PG replied "No, how-how could I forget about you?"
"Well," Bubblegum said "it's just that it took you a week to call me, I would've called you but you haven't given me your phone number yet."
"Really," Gumball said awkwardly "perhaps we should fix that problem...next time we see each other."
Marshall Lee snickered quietly as he stood by.
"When should I come over?" Princess Bubblegum asked
"4 p.m.!" Marshall Lee shouted
"Okay," PB said gladly "see you then, Prince."
Then she hung up.
PG hung up his phone.
"You're welcome." Marshall Lee said proudly
I'm not good with romance stories, so I hope this doesn't suck intensely.
I don't even like real life romance.
