Prompt: I’m Still Fact, She’s Fiction by Mads Langer (requested by unnormalgirl)

I dream of dreaming dreams of her. In twilight she’s a constant blur. I seem to miss the missing part. She’s still my favorite work of art. The picture’s clear, I’m still fact, she’s fiction.

(Inspired by a scene in 3x12 Poof! You’re Dead)

"What?" A puzzled frown creased her brows, the way he once pointed out was adorable.

Half-turning his face, he managed a small mumble, “Nothing.” When her concentration returned to the case, his returned to her.

Nikki, the half-thought formed in his mind, as he watched the person who inspired her. Nikki was no Beckett. Based on Beckett, yes, but limited, different, never enough and thus somewhat wrong. So many layers to the Beckett onion, however will he peel them all?

Yet, he preferred Nikki. He had spent afternoons working on Nikki, nights with her. Nikki came alive under his touch. He did not have to long for Nikki, to ache for her, the way he did for Beckett. Nikki was his to create, his to contemplate, his to regard, his to hold, his. His.

unnormalgirl replied to your post: “I would like it if people sent me questions, or messages. Even if just to say hi to me. Please?” How often do you just say hi to your followers? You could initiate conversations too, you know.

Don’t feel discouraged! I think tumblr is full of all the socially awkward people who, when they want to talk to someone, will stare for a really long time… Like when you stare at someone’s food when you want to have some. At least that’s just me..

I don’t have a problem with messaging people. I have a problem when I send someone a message, and they never reply, or never post a reply. And I even send to people who will answer. That means that my messages don’t go through…

It pisses me off though, I ask for people to send me some messages, and the only one I get is from someone telling me I can start a conversation too.

Um. Rude.
