Toni (left) and Seong.

ANAHEED Where were you guys before this?

TONI We saw Spring Breakers.

ANAHEED How was it?

SEONG It’s so pretentious.

ANAHEED You didn’t like it?

TONI No, I loved it. I thought it was hilarious. It was good.

ANAHEED Why did you want to see it?

SEONG I really wanted to see James Franco fellating a gun, and she really wanted to see girls in bikinis. Which is funny, because I’m bi and she’s straight. [Notices tape recorder] Is this being recorded?

ANAHEED Yeah.

SEONG [Laughs] Oh god. It’s OK, my reputation is already pretty ruined.

ANAHEED Why, what did you do?

TONI She just exists.

SEONG I exist.

ANAHEED Are you just like a walking scandal?

SEONG OK, can this be off the record?

ANAHEED Yes.

[Seong tells us something truly scandalous.]

GABBT AND ANAHEED Whoaaaa.

ANAHEED We will keep that off the record, but I gotta say, I’m very impressed.

Question 1

ANAHEED Seong, what is Toni’s worst vice?

TONI Maybe smoking occasionally?

WHAT SEONG WROTE Too many feels for fictional people.
Toni: 0 | Seong: 0

GABBY What fictional people?

TONI Oh, like everything. I watch way too much TV, and read too many things. Lately it’s everyone in Les Miz.

GABBY What’s Seong’s biggest vice?

TONI Umm…how’m I supposed to word this?

ANAHEED It’s so bad you can’t even say it?

GABBY What is it?

TONI She has an evil vagina. She destroys the people she sleeps with.

SEONG Sexually. In a good way.

ANAHEED What happens to them?

TONI They’re just ruined.

GABBY What does that mean? Like they can’t go on to anyone else?

TONI Yeah.

ANAHEED What do you do to them?

TONI She’s just amazing.

SEONG Aww, Toni!! Thanks.

ANAHEED I don’t think that’s a vice. I think that’s a superpower.

Question 2

GABBY What does Seong spend most of her time thinking about?

[Seong and Toni break out into GALES of laughter.]

ANAHEED I didn’t think that was gonna be the most explosive question.

SEONG You better get this right!

GABBY What’s the real answer?

SEONG’S The one true D.

WHAT TONI WROTE The one true D
Toni: 1 | Seong: 0

GABBY What is the one true D?

TONI Um…it’s this dude who lives on my floor.

SEONG I’m on a mission to have sex with him.

ANAHEED Why is he called the one true D?

TONI Because we were sitting around one day and she was like, “I really want the D.” And I was like, “I’ll find you a D, Seong.” And she goes, “No, I don’t want a D…”

SEONG “I want the D.”

TONI It was like…have you seen Lord of the Rings?

ANAHEED Yeah.

TONI It’s a Lord of the Rings joke, on “the one true ring.” I feel like most of our conversations start like “Have you seen this?” Sorry!

SEONG And everything’s gonna be about sex eventually.

Question 3

ANAHEED Seong, what is the thing about Toni that you’re most envious of?

TONI’S GUESS I’d say my dresses.

WHAT SEONG WROTE Effortless adorability
Toni: 1 | Seong: 0

TONI I was gonna say adorability! Goddammit!

SEONG You’re a failure! You’re such a failure. You’re a failure.

ANAHEED [To Toni] She had to neg you right after she said you were adorable.

Question 4

GABBY Seong, what did you think of Toni when you first met?

SEONG I don’t know: “What the fuck is this.”

TONI I said “cute”—you’re a jerk.
Toni: 1 | Seong: 0

SEONG “Who the fuck is this cutie?” You’re adorable, though. You’re an adorable human being.

Question 5

ANAHEED Seong, what do you do that most annoys Toni?

SEONG I never annoy Toni. We’re like a perfect old married couple.

ANAHEED OK, what do you do that most delights Toni?

TONI You listen to my feels.

SEONG Oh no, I wrote, “I tell you my sexploits in fandom language.”
Toni: 1 | Seong: 0

Winner: Toni

    This was so much fun to read, it was almost like I was there. Forever now gravitated towards the idea of going to an Ihop in the wee hours of the night when I can’t sleep in hopes of meeting fun strangers like this/people watching because that’s just a lot of fun too.

  • rhymeswithorange May 18th, 2013 1:03 AM

    Fan-freakin’-tastic <3

  • Melisa May 18th, 2013 3:02 AM

    Oh my god. I’ve been waiting for this.

    Susanna and Wells are just freaking cute. Perf couple.
    Seong and Toni are such a fun duo.
    Samhita and Teresa sounds cool.
    I LOLed throughout reading Keira, Hailey, Destiny, and Jahmane’s.
    Sam and Ray are just rad. Would love to be friends with them.
    Marissa, Jon, and Bradley’s little nighttime adventure is wow. (Got drunk+fell on a pizza+fractured a bone+meeting snoop dogg in one night??)

  • hanalady May 18th, 2013 5:27 PM

    this is both hilarious and adorable. i love it.

    but heads up, there is some wacky stuff going on with capitalization, also the fonts, and sometimes your formatting marks show up in the article.

    • Anaheed May 18th, 2013 6:41 PM

      Thanks, hanalady. You guys have no idea the problems I had trying to get this piece up yesterday. I’m fixing everything now, but I’m sorry you had to read it in its original error-ridden state!

      • Dyl May 23rd, 2013 10:05 PM

        There’s still some weird formatting issues on page 4, just so you know.

        This was great though. I LOVED IT

        • Anaheed May 25th, 2013 6:11 PM

          Thank you, Dyl! I think I fixed those, but lemme know if you notice any more. And sorry again, everyone, that this went up with so many errors/issues. My computer kept crashing and I had been awake for more than 48 hours and then WordPress kept reverting to earlier versions and…I’m getting heart palpitations just REMEMBERING that day.

  • Nadya May 19th, 2013 12:34 AM

    Am I the only one who still didn’t get Well’s “going around the diamond” thing? What does this mean!

    • NotReallyChristian May 19th, 2013 5:58 PM

      It means he did lots of other more serious stuff than kissing without ever actually kissing, I think. Like you know the ‘first base’ ‘second base’ euphemisms for romantic/sexual stuff? It means he skipped the early ‘bases’ and went straight to the end.

  • amelia May 19th, 2013 4:29 AM

    i love this feature! the city that i live in doesn’t have many open-all-night places, so i love reading this… hope you do another one soon!

  • pollystyrene May 19th, 2013 7:51 AM

    It’s too bad there aren’t any places like that around my town, I’d love to go on a midnight pancake eating adventure with my friends.

  • Patrícia May 19th, 2013 10:39 AM

    Seong and Toni were so awesome, seriously, holy crap.

  • Ruby B. May 19th, 2013 10:43 PM

    I love Open All Night so much! That first couple made me unbelievably happy because of cuteness

  • EmilyJn May 20th, 2013 8:57 AM

    What’s 4/20? I don’t know if I’m being stupid or if it’s a primarily American thing or something?

    • annah-daly May 21st, 2013 11:11 AM

      It’s my husband and I’s anniversary! 4-20 2010!
      No, it’s bob Marley’s birthday, or else a day to get reeeally stoned. we have Marley fest where i live and we play reggae and people walk around waving bags of weed to sell and don’t even get in trouble! everyone loves 4-20!

  • wallflower152 May 20th, 2013 1:24 PM

    I love this! I read the other one in the Yearbook I believe. Makes me want IHOP and it’s kool to see how there are a bunch of people out there just like you only different. This and People Reviews are some my favorite Rookie features. : )

  • taliabc May 20th, 2013 3:54 PM
