just laid to waste

So I clearly don't have enough to write today Merc has at least four things to write today one of which is in a getting-money-for-it capacity, so how about a holiday/winter fic prompt meme?

:D :D :D?


You know the drill, people. Comment with some characters and a prompt, pairings or no pairings, and I will write you a fic(let)! RPwise nothing's off limits. Fandom-wise, can't hurt to ask! I am currently doing a BtVS rewatch and am mid-S2; otherwise, ask and you could very well receive.

Holiday or winter themes :D, but not required.


ETA: Also, because I NEVER MET A HOLIDAY LOVE MEME I DIDN'T LIKE.

LA?
"This is your fault," Jordie informs Matt flatly, as Magenta tightens his holiday-themed corset encrusted with sequined reindeer.

"You know, I think I'm suffering equally here," Matt protests. "You're not the one who got told you could be made into a man in seven days."

(He has to admit, he doesn't hate himself in fishnets as much as he'd assumed he would.)

"Boys, boys." Dr. Frank-N-Furter's Santa hat sways somewhere between jauntily and dangerously as he moves; his pointed green elf stilettos click across the stage. "If you don't stop fighting, we'll never be ready for the Extravaganza Solstice Sing-Along in time. Now, from the top, please-- on the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, an alien conspiracy--"

MATT/MINUS IS MY FAVORITE
"I have to admit, I find this tradition incomprehensible."

Matt grins. "Uh. Why, because it's a parasite famed for killing gods?"

"Not the most romantic plant, is it?" Sherlock glances up at it dubiously.

"If it helps, European cultures believed it represented the male essence because of its berries."

"I am not so sure that it does." Sherlock's gaze drops to Matt, and he smiles. "Regardless, kissing you is a perfectly delightful option."

Matt grins and leans in.

Christmas celebration gateway drug: unlocked.

Matt and Tiwa-baking cookies

"... Tiwa, I dropped the vanilla."

Tiwa tilts her head, finishes sliding the first batch into the oven, and turns around. "That's all right, we've got lots, mum keeps more in the cabinet up there."

Matt looks pained.

"No. I mean. I dropped the vanilla. Into the batter."

Tiwa flits over; sure enough, in the big bowl with the butter, sugar, and egg, the small bottle of vanilla extract is floating in the confectionary muck, leaking inky brown like a tiny oil spill.

"Can we save it ...?" Matt asks, uncertain.

Tiwa laughs.

"Oh Matt, now I know why you're so skinny."

"Uncalled for!" Matt protests. "Come on, baker's triage, can we fix it or do we have to dump it all out?"

Tiwa giggles. "Well if you want to make a hundred ..."

~ we won't go until we get some ~
Ava scowls. "I thought you said a-ssailing, not wa-ssailing."

"Aw come on, Sparkle, put on your Christmas cheer," Ben says, grinning. (His hat has a sprig of holly in it, but he wasn't gonna be the one in full St. Nick haberdashery.)

"Which ... I actually thought was just a bartending special," Matt puts in. Ava gives him a look, which Matt tries very hard to take seriously.

"Look." Ben throws an arm around each of their shoulders. "How about I make you kids a deal. Whoever can rustle up the best Christmas spirit gets the spirit of their choice when we get back downstairs."

Matt looks seriously contemplative. Ava just looks rebellious.

"I can't sing!" she says, waving her arms and coming perilously close to smacking Ben in the gut. "This is totally rigged!"

"Miss Irony," Ben sing-songs. "I'll see my way to taking you to Dodge City."

Ava pauses. "To shoot things?"

"If you can hit 'em."

"... I'll go get my antlers," she says decisively. "Come on, my room's this way!"

Ben grins, thumps Matt on the back, and follows her. Matt frowns.

"I thought people usually wanted to get out of Dodge, not into Dodge ... hey, wait up! Am I missing something??"

It is only polite to exchange holiday gifts with one's interdimensional ally! So what does Ivy and Jim's gift exchange look like?

Either drunk, or complaining about ubiquitous holiday decorations, or both.

Oooo me!

2005-reboot-post-zombie-wtf-extravaganza:

Puck and Havelock are actually about to talk to each other like rational adults, but are stuck in the middle of a barwide Christmas/winter party. Do they talk? Do they fight? Does Havelock snap and assassinate the hundredth person to interrupt/throw mistletoe?

SOMETHING.


(We should thread their next interaction, like... weeks ago. But in the meantime!)

MATT. RACHE. THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS.

:D?
mercuriazs
Dec. 13th, 2011 03:45 am (UTC)
Rache's lip twitches.

"Explain the sleigh bells one more time?"

"Well, okay, the breakdown is basically this," Matt says. "On the one hand, there are things that have to do with Christianity and the birth of Jesus. What child is this, o holy night, nativity scenes. Then there are things that have to do with sort of a commercialized 1950s Christmas, so, Santa Claus and riding in a one-horse sleigh and baby it's cold outside." He smiles. "The sleigh bells are ... from the latter part. You know, when it's snowing and people still want to go outside but also don't want to walk anywhere?"

"All right." Rache looks baffled, but somewhat amused. "And the eggnog ...?"

"It's just delicious," Matt says, decisively. "And tradition."

"And ... the mistletoe."

Matt leans in, sliding a hand up the side of Rache's neck.

Murmured, "I honestly have no idea."

Rache laughs. "Oh."

"I mean." Matt smiles, crooked. "Christmas is supposed to be ... all about love."

And before Rache can reply, he kisses him.




And that's all right.

DON'T YOU STILL OWE ME EVIL MAGICAL GIRL AVA

SPN/PMMM x-over: "Raise Your Weapon" (1 of 2 that I have written)
When Ava Wilson is fourteen, her favorite singer is Katy Perry, her favorite store is American Apparel, and her very first boyfriend, a flag football player named Brady, is just her favorite.

When Ava Wilson is fifteen, she doesn't really shop much anymore. She listens to a lot of emo and industrial stuff on a lifted iPos. Brady has died, and she herself has pretty much died as well.


*****

The accident was a blow to the whole community. One of the terrible, inexplicable sports tragedies that makes it into all the big papers. Brady was at preseason for football, real football with big guys and tackling, and maybe it was because he was such a big kid himself that the older guys didn't go easy on him. He didn't have a lot of time for Ava the first week, which made her mad, but over the weekend he took her out for pizza and enthused about his bruises.

"You should do cheerleading," he suggested. "Then you could come to all our away games."

"Uhhh." Ava looked up from her straw. (She tended to concentrate while drinking.) "Don't our cheerleaders suck?"

"Yeah," Brady said, "so you'd kick ass."

She rolled her eyes. "You're charming."

But then he leaned in to kiss her, which tasted like pepperoni but more or less made up for the moment of insensitivity. And, as it turned out, the away game stuff was a moot point anyway.


*****

As Ava discovered after the fact, Brady took a hit wrong and landed bad, effectively breaking his neck; by the time she got it together and had her dad drive her to the hospital, it was already too late. They did not let her see his body.

There were three days left of preseason.

The only things she remembers are physical: wracking sobs, a runny nose, not being able to breathe. In her memory, this goes on for hours at a time. At some point, Cubey makes his arrival.

That is, she knows he's Cubey now-- at this point in the story, he's just a freaky deformed rabbit who's shown up on her bed during the worst day of her life.

He makes it more worst by talking.

"It doesn't have to be this way."

Ava lets out a muffled, croaky shriek.

"Oh my GOD--"

Freaky-rabbit-late-Cubey continues unperturbed.

"You can save his life, Ava."

She presses back against the headboard, fluffy white pillow raised between her and it like a shield. Her eyes are very wide.

"Oh my God," she whimpers. "I've gone crazy. I'm going totally crazy."

"Listen, Ava," urges freaky rabbit, "there's not much time."

(It's only later that she'll learn this is a lie.

And it's much later that she'll learn everything else is, too.)

"You can save him," murmurs the freaky rabbit-voice, earnest.

"If you only wish for it."

RIVER/TIG. Up to you whether it's in Milliways or in backstory, but either way I want to inflict seasonally cheery surroundings on Tig. :D
