Jessie is somewhat miffed to think that Billy loves his babysitter more than he loves his parents. So he is going to tell a story. The best story he can think of.
Contains Solaris-era Black Blanche family hijinx, and general questionable parenting skills. Also contains goofiness. Warning: I wrote this late at night. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt for any fandom, "lies we tell our children".

.their fairy-tale love.
I'm a busy man, Racquel, I don't spend a lot of time around babies! I've got people to shoot! )
He was the only one who thought differently from the others, the one they hoped would change everything. He wanted to do it because he had already changed everything about himself and he would not settle for mediocre.
Contains Jugend-era Ramsus in all his spoilery glory. Some details might not be completely correct -- it's been a long time since I played the second part of the game. Written for [community profile] fic_promptly prompt for any fandom, "the alienation of being different weighs on them".

.taken name.
Funny. Says here you're a Second Class citizen, but you certainly look like a First. )
He's lived with the cold for so long that he's forgotten what it felt like to be warm. It's nice. It might not be just from the desert.
Contains goopy friendship feelings, gross. Also, dorks. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt for any fandom, "After The Ice".

.warm again.
All the happiness he'd known in Aquvy hadn't warmed him. All his hard-won independence and confidence hadn't banished that cold. )
While they're stranded on Kamine Island, Euphy thinks about what would happen if they never left. Lelouch also thinks about it, raining on her parade as usual.
Contains fluff. Last post for now, I swear!! Drabble for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "Any: facile".

.differing perspectives.
They were lying in the sand, drying off and watching the clouds roll past in the endlessly blue sky. Everything was quiet, peaceful. )
She's nervous, very nervous, about the idea of telling Marie that she's interested in him. Making her even more nervous is the fact that every time she steals a glance at him, he's looking back at her.
Contains shameless fluff. I might never tire of writing the two of them mooning over each other and awkwardly sharing feelings, even though I want to shout, "KISS!" every time they interact. For the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "he can always seem to tell when she's looking".

It was deeply unnerving to her that she liked Marie, and that he knew her name, and worried about her, and had even held her in his arms when she was weak and exhausted. )
Zero's fear is so intense and so real that it feels like he loses control. Fortunately, he's easily distracted -- and it only takes a tiny little thing to give him a lot of perspective.
Contains spazzing. I love thinking about Zero's phobia, because it makes a lot of sense for him as a character, and even when Zero has been promoted and is out piloting an AHW in space, you can still observe him feeling queasy and uncomfortable -- overcome but not forgotten. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "watching liquid in zero-gravity distracts him from being in zero-gravity".

.mastering space.
Weightless and powerless, adrift without the force of gravity to hold him down. Tumbling through space. Falling into nothing. )
No matter how strong your armor, physical or emotional, given enough time the darkness will always, eventually, find its way in. As disciplined as Aqua is, she cannot last forever.
Contains bleakness and spoilers for the end of BBS. Some trippiness. Drabble for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "her dreams are losing color".

.fading into gray.
The darkness will take her. )
Her beginnings are different from his. But like him, the memories of that time disappear into the mists: along with all the secrets, innocent and twisted, that she keeps even from herself.
Contains so many spoilers for such a short piece. Co-starring Vexen, Saix, and Roxas. Also, there is a lot of implied creepiness that I'm proud of at the end there. Drabbled for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "the first time she sees something that isn't monochrome"

Can this thing really fool anyone? Despite what you may believe, not everyone in the Organization is an idiot. )
Without memories, Roxas begins as a blank slate. He learns from the people around him -- the things they say, and the things they don't say.
Contains Roxas being a baaaaby. Which means he can think a little, but still isn't really talking, or feeling, or remembering. Also contains Demyx being the worst, Larxene also being the worst, and Lexaeus being the best. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "explaining to the new kid that a scary face doesn't mean cruel and a pretty face doesn't mean nice".

.day six: learning.
I guess that you're pretty much guaranteed to recover after a whole week of doing nothing. I envy you -- I wish I was new and got a week of vacation again. )
Inside Orihime's barrier, she can take care of the people who matter to her. Outside the barrier, there is nothing that matters.
Contains shippy fluff and pre-existing relationships. I was tired of writing UST! Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "a stolen moment in perfect safety".

.time after time.
The words were proof that they were spending their lives together, even though it had only been a few years ago. )
She doesn't know much about Beat, but she's grown to care about him fast in the scant time -- only minutes, really -- that they've been partners. He must remind her of her own brother.
Contains siblingy cute and angst, as well as reference to Rhyme's entry fee implied by the game. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "the stranger she formed a pact with" (theme: love).

.lost and found.
Joshua can complain about anything under the sun, but some complaints are more serious -- and more meaningful -- than others.
Contains Joshua, a warning in and of itself. Written to the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt: "of course Joshua has complaints about e-books".

Is it like giving up canvas to do street art? )
He has to do something to wile away the hours between one Day and the next, but he doesn't have a lot of options. What he does have is all the time in the world -- unlike everyone else in Shibuya.
Contains bored Joshua and all of the spoilers. Even this intro has spoilers. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "he doesn't sleep like the real Players".

.texts from the end of the world.
Have you ever thought of programming more entertaining games for flip phones? )
After seven days of hell, Yashiro Uzuki was still dead. She hadn't made peace with herself. She hadn't become a better person. She hadn't learned the value of life - or whatever you were supposed to learn. But all of that was part of why the Reaper who tormented her decided to come get her.
Contains approximately 100% headcanon. I did a lot of thinking about why Uzuki was in the Game, what was holding her back, and what her entry fee would have been. It's not even half covered in here, but I really liked writing in Kariya's POV. Written to the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "they meet again as allies the day after her Game ends".

.unresolved issues.
It wasn't hard, really, to see when a person was dragging themselves down. )
She wanted so much to be Eri but she never really thought about what that would mean giving up. What finally drives it home for her is clothing -- perhaps naturally.
Contains core character issues expressed via pretty clothes. Little drabble to the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "she finds that she's disappointed to look in the mirror and see Eri". I've got a lot of those prompts to post by now...

Fashion is important, Neku. )
Shunsui knew full well that Lisa had taken on some responsibility for Nanao in a way that she didn't for the grown members of their division, but he had never thought about what exactly that meant until he catches them together.
Contains Kyouraku/Lisa and bb Nanao. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "he sees a different side of Lisa when she's with Nanao".

Sometimes she liked to ignore him -- or, as he preferred to think of it, play hide-and-go-seek with him without warning. )
Ichigo doesn't have a resolution for the new year himself. But it does come to his attention that his friends could use his help.
Contains canon amount of Ichigo/Orihime, Karakura school friends adorableness, and self-esteem issues for everyone. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt "an unnecessary resolution to lose weight".

.starting fresh.
Keigo's elbow attempted an assault on his face before he called an end to it. )
Every now and then, Renji gets caught up in the moment and loses sight of his goals. And every time, he gets a reminder of what he's missing in his life.
Contains unrequited Renji/Rukia because I am incapable of writing their destined happiness. Pre-canon timeline. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "the first time he sees her in Kuchiki family finery".

.future perfect.
The 11th Division did not make way for the entourage: they continued walking down their side of the street in the opposite direction, laughing and jeering and shoving and attracting lots of attention -- including hers. )
Soifon knows that he is hiding things from their captain, and she can't help but feel that it's important. She is determined to find out what -- especially if it's something with the potential to make shake her rival from his lofty position.
Contains implied Urahara/Yoruichi and one-sided Soifon/Yoruichi. Pre-Turn Back the Pendulum time period. Some warnings for GrayHat!Urahara and the Hollowification that KT implied he actually did. Written for a [community profile] fic_promptly challenge week with the prompt, "she hates Urahara for having Yoruichi's favor and fears him because he is capable of anything".

.back against the wall.
The hours passed without incident and he did not come to silence her. )
To save Ikkaku's life, Yumichika revealed his biggest secret... and now he awaits judgment anxiously. It's hard to know that you'll be condemned for something you can't change about yourself.
Contains Ikkaku/Yumichika. Written for the [community profile] fic_promptly prompt, "he's always known that Yumichika had a kidou-type zanpakutou".

.shameful and beautiful.
(he who had never wanted harm to come to anyone) (aside from a few people who had dared to malign his perfect looks) )


insincere: (Default)
beauty in the breakdown
