Title: check this hand 'cuz I'm marvelous
Fandom: Supernatural
Disclaimer: not my characters; title from Lady GaGa
Warnings: takes place during season 5
Pairings: none
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 85
Point of view: third
Prompt: Dean/Castiel, angels and karaoke probably don't mix, but Dean's sure it'll at least be hilariously awkward

There is drunk angel on stage. Two hunters sit at a table, empty glasses lined up, one after the other. Another angel smirks at them, chocolate bar in hand.

As the music starts, one of the hunters buries his face in his hands, groaning, "Oh, fuck no."

The sober angel smirks harder.

"Dean," the other hunter says. "Dude. Please stop him."

And Castiel, the littlest angel that could, belts out Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" while Dean contemplates saying yes to Michael just to make it stop.






Title: cry, little sister
Fandom: Leverage/White Collar
Disclaimer: not my characters
Warnings: implied child abuse
Pairings: implied Peter/Neal
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 340
Point of view: third
Prompt: Peter Burke & Parker, "It's okay, Parker. I know who you are, and I'm here to rescue you."

It was a job gone horribly, terribly wrong, and of course, Parker was there, that little girl from the last home he ever let the system put him in, the one he almost couldn't save.

He saw the earpiece get smashed, the last act she had strength for, and he kept up a steady stream of bullshit, throwing in the code for now, Peter, come in now, I'm completely fucked, there's an innocent bystander bleeding out, Peter now Peter now now now in a dozen different ways.

He slid across the floor to try and help her, put pressure on the wound, keep her from bleeding out. "Hey, Parker," he murmured, ignoring the gunmen, their target's hired goons. If he had a gun of his own… but he didn't, he hated guns, he's just really good with them.

"Noah?" she gasped, eyes blinking at him before sliding away.

"Yeah," he whispered. There was so much blood…

He almost sobbed in relief when Peter yelled, "FBI! Freeze!"

And then Peter was beside him, voice gentle and hands firm, as he put pressure on Parker's wound, and he said, "Hello, Parker. I've heard a lot about you."

"Nate?" she asked, voice weaker than the last time she spoke.

"No," Peter answered as Neal demanded an ambulance from the phone he just picked out of Peter's pocket. "I'm Peter Burke. Don't worry, Parker, you'll be just fine. And we won't even book you this time, since you helped us."

"I-I did?" Her eyelashes kept fluttering shut and Neal grabbed her hand, staring at Peter, begging him to do something, anything, because—Parker.

"Yes, Parker," Peter said, eyes flicking to Neal before focused back on her. "You saved Neal's life. And we're going to save yours."

(Later, after she'd been stabilized and Neal could breathe again, he didn't mention the four people he knew didn't work for the hospital who kept visiting her. He suspected Peter knew that, too. And when she vanished as soon as was safe, Peter didn't look too hard.)



 

Title: flying
Fandom: Charmed
Disclaimer: not my characters
Warnings: mentions of unchanged future
Pairings: none
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 90
Point of view: third
Prompt: Chris (gen), ever after

In his dreams, he flies. High over the ocean, away from demons and magic and destiny. Away from a beloved smile turned to a hateful smirk, away from bloody hands and bruised skin, away from leading an army against the man he should've always stood beside, come what may.

In his dreams, he flies. Sometimes in his dreams, his brother flies beside him, and they laugh.

And when he wakes to Mom calling him for breakfast, he doesn't remember the dreams or the life he escaped to have them.



Title: with him I crossed over the waters of death
Fandom: The Boondock Saints
Disclaimer: not my characters; title from Gilgamesh.
Warnings: future!fic; sad
Pairings: implied Connor/Murphy, or could just be brotherly love
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 65
Point of view: third
Prompt: Connor/Murphy, Saints don't retire

Saints don't retire, Connor knows. They can’t. They have a calling, a divine mission, summoned by God to wield his sword. Destroy that which is evil, so that which is good may flourish.

Saints don’t retire. They don’t go quietly into the night, old and weary, glad to be gone. 

Saints die young, and they die painfully, and they die holding their brother and whispering of home.

 

Title: The king has laid himself down and will not rise again
Fandom: Batman Under the Red Hood
Disclaimer: not my characters; title from Gilgamesh.
Warnings: AU for the movie
Pairings: none
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 115
Point of view: third
Prompt: Bruce & Jason, the Joker, AU - the Joker kills Batman during "A Death in the Family"

When Jason tracks him down, he shows no mercy. He shoots the Joker from a roof across the street, through both knees and shoulders. And then, while the Joker is screaming for his minions to do something, Jason takes them all out, bullets between eyes.

And then Jason hurries over, just in case the Joker has some trick in the wings, but the Joker is writhing on the floor, crying and shrieking, and Jason listens. To every curse, to every plea, to the Joker begging for mercy.

Bruce is dead, and Jason has none. Bruce is dead, and Jason makes it hurt. Bruce is dead, and soon—but not nearly soon enough—so is the Joker.

Okay, WC/Leverage has now become my favorite XO ever. Mmmmm, I would seriously love to see more Neal & Parker.

I loved your Leverage/White Collar fic. You've got Neal's franticness, Peter's concern, and still made sure Parker was Parker... plus included the rest of the team in a cameo appearance. I loved it.

And you know, Know, KNOW this is what Jason would have done if the Joker had killed Batman. With no rudder the world just became a scarier place for him.
Thanks for sharing

The Chris flying one is sad. Even if the world gets saved, the idea that there's still the imprint of the original timeline somewhere under it all-he endured it, they all did. It's got to manifest somehow, even if it doesn't happen. Magic will out!

I think the whole attraction to the Wyatt-Chris, Wyatt/Chris dynamic is that they really do love each other very much, and want to stand by each other, even when they're on opposite sides. Both of them are trying to "fix" the other one so he'll be willing to do that. It makes for gen fic that's pretty hard to separate from the slash fic.

While I don't like the thought of wee!Chris remembering what his AU self went through, I also don't like the thought of that Chris being swept under the carpet.


Wyatt, I believe, will do what he thinks best, whether or not anyone else in the world agrees. And he's powerful enough that others don't really matter.

And Chris? He's the same.

It's only the definition of what's best that differs (considerably, lol, just ask all the dead people!), and the methods used. Chris is somewhat more limited in terms of sheer power he can raise; but I suspect he more than makes up for it in smarts, dedication, and deviousness. I suspect all that power could very well make Wyatt complacent and/or lazy, because he expects to be stronger all the time.

I've read a lot of science fiction and fantasy where people have powers, and one thing I remember in several world settings is the concept that if you don't have the firepower that someone more powerful has, you have to work with what you've got-and get really ~good at it. Like...hedgewitches and earth mages in Valdemar, as opposed to court-trained fancy mages. They're not as strong, but they can do things other magic people can't, because they don't scorn the basics, and they know to the nth degree exactly what they can do-and how to use it subtly, not blast the roof off with every blow, you know?
