stars pool in the puddles left at her feet
as she walks, and skips, and runs through the world’s broken streets

and the sky laughs in clouds
as she runs her gentle hands through slippery blades of grass, maps the cracks in aging trees


this goddess of kindness and sweet smiles
makes the flowers and trees strain after her fingertips 
even when she has moved on to the next and the next


she walks and she runs 
down abandoned country lanes
in that fine balance between the world sleeping and awakening 


down abandoned beaches 
where the sand kisses the grey ocean kisses the grey sky 
where the world stops and holds its breath 
as her luminescent footsteps press their mark into its skin
remindingpressingwhispering–insisting:
i am here


and the sky laughs in breezes
ruffling the pages of her books, trying to get more than a bright muffled laugh
and the sun shines in doses 
trying to emulate the warmth she wears like a cloak 


and the moon, she smiles
as the girl laughs, and lives, and breaks, and grows 


and the world
it holds its breath
as this goddess walks though its broken streets and reminds it of humanity

This is my LANE. I can’t find where the amazing plaited bow accessory is from but i’m so in love with it? It’s like a glamorous girly bow tie. Paired with this Alannah Hill coat and Jennifer Ouellette headband it is completely Blair Waldorf down to the Be&D bag and little glimpse of a tartan belt. {s1e13 - The Thin Line Between Chuck And Nate} 

reflection.

Guys i’m feeling a little nostalgic so i’m gonna drag you all kicking and screaming down memory lane alongside me, buckle up and grab the kleenex…

So, the first time I ever saw the girls live was in early November, 2015. It was at an academy venue so the show was super intimate and closed in. You could really immerse yourself into the music and feel their genuine passion and pure talent. Theres no doubt that the entire Reflection era from start to finish was remarkable, and something I personally think the girls have never managed to top, and never will. I couldn’t fault their show one bit. The music was incredible, the girls vocals were impeccable, costumes were fitting and the choreo was simplistic. The whole atmosphere within the crowd was electric. The girls sang a little individual verse from a song of their choice which brought the whole sassiness and confident nature of the show back down to reality. Five girls living their dreams. I may or may not have cried during ‘Brave Honest Beautiful’ but i mean we’re all human aren’t we, we can all relate to songs like those instead of ones like ‘Down’ and ‘Work from Home’. Literally for those two hours or so during the show, no matter who you were, where you came from and what you believed in, you were all one and everyone was the same. You looked at every single person in that venue and everyone was radiating pure happiness. And to top everything off, the whole show was inundated with little camren moments and interactions. The full concept and everything that occurred was simply magical, I honestly will never ever forget just how incredible it was to be stood in that room in those specific moments. 

I was fortunate enough to see the girls again a few times in October last year during the 7/27 tour and I honestly felt so detached from the concert. Obviously the show side of it was fab, the girls were all vocally incredible but, I felt disheartened at the fact there was a significant lack of intimacy between them and us. The girls seemed to belt out song after song and rarely personalised the show to those at each different venue. The arena capacity levels at nearly 10,000 more seats than the 2,000 person standing academy venue from 2015. The girls didn’t sell out here, but watching five girls on a stage in such a huge arena was really disappointing (I mean obviously the 7 pints of beer didn’t help when I fell down the venue stairs and sprained my ankle, but we won’t talk about that) because they seemed so far away from everything.I left that specific show gutted and feeling like i’d just witnessed something for the final time. Little did we know the group would split just 11 weeks later. 

If i could rewind my little camren clock, i’d take you all back to that specific day on the reflection tour in 2015. That was magic. 

So whenever you’re feeling down or disheartened by all this never ending ‘shade/drama’ think of your own moment at a concert or when you met the girls or when you listened to the girls music for the first time and allow yourself to feel exactly what you felt in those moments. We’re stronger as a fandom when were together, than we are when we’re against each other.

Damn, the nostalgia is raw tonight.

Sterek fics with dad!Derek?

Snow Flirting by thepsychicclam

As Beacon Hills get pounded with foot after foot of snow, single dad Stiles can’t quite keep up with his four year old, his job, and shoveling his driveway. Derek makes his teenage son shovel Stiles’ walk, and that just leads to Derek helping Stiles out with a whole bunch of other tasks. That’s okay with Derek, though, cause any chance to be with Stiles is okay with him.

Goodnight Moon by swarls

His pack pushed him away, never spoke to him. For six years Stiles has been away at college and the only person he really kept in touch with was Scott. So when he goes back to Beacon Hills after his father has a heart attack and sees Derek with a toddler his entire world is turned upside down.

Prince Among Wolves by tylerfucklin (Zimothy)

Looking for full day/evening sitter. 2 twin boys age 4. Must have exp. w/werewolves. Must be human. No pedophiles. No teenage girls. Pay negotiable.

Swimming with Anna by sssssssim

Stiles is a swimming coach at a pool in San Francisco. Anna Hale, a six year old adorable girl, is in one of his classes.
Stiles falls in love with her instantly. It takes a bit longer to fall in love with her father.

The One With the Prince and the Dragon by mikkimouse

“You could have just told her you were more interested in meeting another prince,” Laura said when they were both in the kitchen, putting the candles into Libby’s birthday cupcakes.

Derek snorted. “What, and have the six-year-old boys ask me to marry them? I’m not up for that much rejection in one day.”

“Hm.” Laura raised her eyebrows. “I was thinking less about Libby’s friends and more about their dads. Specifically, the one with the loud laugh and the moles. What was his name?”

(Or: Derek dresses as a prince for his daughter’s birthday party and pines after her friend’s godfather.)

Is That A Wand In Your Pocket Or? by reptilianraven

“So a little bird told me you’ve got the hots for the kiddie magician at Jamie’s birthday party.” Laura says. “And when I say little bird, I mean Erica and Allison. They’re telling me you were all over this guy.”

Derek breathes in, then out, as he tries to suppress the urge to lob these loaves of rye bread at her head.

-

The one where Stiles is a magician who performs at kid’s birthday parties and Derek is a shy single dad baker who can’t stop seeing Stiles everywhere. There are also dead bodies popping up every other day, but Stiles really doesn’t need to know about that, so naturally, Stiles pops up at the crime scenes too. Fantastic.

Snacks From Up Above by MorganaWinchesterek

Stiles works as an IT guy at Hale Enterprises and for the last six months, he’s been called upstairs to fix some kind of computer problem for Derek Hale at least four times a week. And two of those four times, Mr Hale has either hit on him or asked him out. But Stiles knows better than to date his boss and Mr Hale is the absolute worst at flirting.

So learning that Mr Hale is a single father to an adorable four-year-old girl who wants Stiles to attend her dance recital shouldn’t change things at all, right?

And on top of that, a mysterious cup has been lowered down through a hole in the ceiling right above Stiles’ desk, delivering treats directly to him. Stiles declares them to be his Cup Person and they seem to know just what he likes.

What could possibly go wrong?

our lives are changing lanes by grimm

There’s a lot of screaming going on inside the first house Stiles visits. He isn’t really worried, because it sounds like kids, but then the door opens and hi, says his dick, because the dude in front of him is gorgeous, built like a god with a face like thunder. Stiles wants to lick that solid jaw line. Hold the fuck on, says his cop brain, because the dude’s got kids hanging all over him; one’s on his back, skinny legs looped around his waist, and another two hanging off one arm, toes barely brushing the ground. There’s a tubby toddler clinging to his leg like a koala, and he’s got a baby tucked into the crook of the one arm that doesn’t have kids hanging off it. Stiles’ mouth drops open.

“How many of those kids did you kidnap?” he asks before he can wrangle his brain into submission.

The man gives him a look that says what the fuck is wrong with you and snaps, “You think I’d subject myself to this on purpose?”

“Oooh,” says one of the kids hanging off his arm. “I’m telling Mom.”

Air Mail. by Handsofred

‘’Oh my god’’ Stiles breathed out as heavy booted footsteps faded away down the hall. ‘’oh my god’’

‘’Stiles?’’ Allison asked as he scrambled around the desk searching for the last letter before he was thrusting it at their faces.

‘’It’s him…my soldier…it’s him, it’s Mattie’s dad’’ He told them, his eyes wide as Allison took the letter from him, ‘’oh my god, oh my god and I fainted in front of him…oh Jesus Christ’’

DILF by twentysomething

“Today is Scott’s first day of kindergarten and Derek is terrified.”

I think I understand what happened, now:

It was all a dream, i.e. a “parallel identity crisis” (see: Lost Highway) / fugue state suffered by “Dale Bartholomew Cooper”, which I suspect isn’t even his real name, now. Maybe he really is “Richard”; maybe his unconscious chose a new name reflective of the infamous and mysterious “D.B. Cooper” of true crime lore. Dale/Richard suffered a tragedy involving someone named Judy and is probably institutionalized, now, and doesn’t want to “talk about Judy” (an incident he regards as an ”extreme negative force”; his psyche shrouds the memory in an invented mythology) with his psychiatrist. Instead, he imagines a world in which he is out solving crimes and trying to make things right. He goes so deep into this fantasy that it becomes his only reality; he is “like the dreamer who dreams, and then lives inside the dream.” When we hear Dale whisper Judy’s name in TP:FWWM (some have mistaken this for a repetition of Jeffries, but listen again: that’s Kyle MacLachlan’s voice), there is an image of a monkey’s face onscreen (a primate, perhaps alluding to the primal/instinctual brain, or the primal fear associated with the buried memory of Judy) immediately following the creamed corn scene (consumption of “garmonbozia”/“Pain and sorrow”). Judy is Cooper/Richard’s deepest pain and sorrow; his “garmonbozia”/what his demons feed off of, fueling his unending fever dream. Her story is being retold and reimagined through the Laura Palmer character; it’s “the story of the little girl who lived down the lane,” and the story is being rewritten again and again by a tormented, broken soul who can’t figure out how to fix it in a way that his fractured psyche will accept.

When Dale/Richard becomes Dougie!Coop, he might have just underwent shock treatment (electricity), or have been given a stronger dose of psych meds. The treatment is partially successful, getting him out of the “lodge” (i.e. mental incapacity), but he doesn’t emerge from the resulting stupor until even stronger treatment is administered. Still, the delusions and psychogenic amnesia persist. We know that Dale is canonically wary of doctors… Is Diane his therapist? Does he fantasize about a romance with her?

Bear with me here – but I think Audrey might be a woman he met inside the psychiatric facility (another patient), and maybe she got drawn into the fantasy world along with him. Perhaps all the residents of Twin Peaks and beyond are based off of fellow residents at the facility, their visiting family members, staff, etc (it’s not hard to imagine that’s where Nadine came from), in a Wizard of Oz-esque, epic dream scenario. This would also explain the dreamlike tone of the original series and the bizarre behavior of the characters. I haven’t checked out the other theories that are going around yet and this was probably better articulated by somebody else already*, but wanted to write it down before other ideas could influence my own.

(*EDIT: apparently I’m the only one who has postulated this so far? So I went ahead and expanded this theory in three four parts: 1, 2, 3 and 4)

“Sea” - Suga x Reader

Request 1: Can I Send a requests for a scenario with Yoongi Where He Never believes that would Fall in Love with someone at First sight but then He Meets you , a solo Idol who just made her debut and has a Beautiful Voice ? 😍

Request 2: Could you please write a scenario based on bts song sea with suga ?

Notes at the bottom.

Angst? ¦¦ just over 2k word count ¦¦ changes in POV’s; hope they’re clear

Yoongi was no romanticist. He didn’t believe in just wanting to spend the rest of his life with someone he just met. He didn’t care for rom-coms nor dramas. Let what happens on screen stay in there and focus on reality.

But sometimes, the lack of a romantic interest in his life made him feel… empty. Don’t get him wrong, he loves being an idol and adores the fans that helped him become successful, but there was never time for him to get real with people. In the past four years, he hasn’t been able to go out so freely and meet and socialise with people and get to know them personally. All there was were meet and greets with people he would probably only see once or maybe twice in this lifetime.

“Hyung, are you okay? You’ve been staring at that screen for a long time. Shouldn’t you take a break?” Jeongguk asks, concerned, snapping Yoongi out of the trance he was in.

Yoongi had been sat at the desk in his studio for most of the day now, the door wide open for air. Every time Jeongguk had walked past this half hour, he couldn’t help but notice the unchanged state of Yoongi’s gaze attached to the computer screen, next to no change in the position he was sat in, either. With no one else around at the moment, Jeongguk guessed it was his place to do something, anything.

“Sorry, yeah, maybe…” Yoongi apologizes, looking away finally from the screen. “I just have some things on my mind I guess…” he admits, shaking his head to snap out of his trance.

“Do you need to perhaps talk about anything?”

“I don’t wanna inconvenience you Jeongguk…”

“I have some time to spare.” Jeongguk tells his elder, taking a seat next to him in the spare chair. “Just let it all out, hyung.”

“So you won’t mind listening even if it’s all sappy talk?”

“Just speak, hyung.”

Yoongi swivels his chair around to face Jeongguk next to him and figures he should just go ahead and say it. “I guess sometimes it would just be nice to have that someone special in my life. You know me, I’m not usually an overly emotional kind of guy when it comes to romance, but… there’d just never be time whilst I’m an idol, you know… falling in love. That firstly is definitely the most complicated part. It can take years to get to know and love someone before dating even begins.”

“So you don’t believe in love at first sight then hyung?”

“Most definitely not…”

“You’ve never just looked at a girl and fell in love?”

“Nope.”

***

This had to be the most exciting time of your life. After all this hard work, it could finally be paying off; you’re this close to finally debuting! Singing has been your life ever since you can remember, and you can barely remember dreaming about doing anything else with your life. You auditioned for an agency at the first chance you could get, and you became one of the fortunate ones that have made it this far.

The initial plan was that you were to debut as part of a group, but due to complications with members and other planned bands under the label, it had resulted in just you as a solo idol ready to make her appearance. Admittedly, it was the most nerve-wracking idea for you, that you should be doing this alone, but you’ve been working hard with the agency’s team, and this is actually a really rewarding feeling.

Years of training and months of non-stop work towards your first single… What does the future hold for you? Only time can tell, so you focus on the moment. It just so happens that this moment involves you about to walk onto that stage, where you will be broadcast to the nation, even the world if anyone out there chooses to tune in.

You can’t lie though. The reception in the lead up to your debut has been somewhat shaky, simply because of you being a foreigner. You’d been through it all; 3 survival shows, people that you’d been working with and built relationships with dropping out, getting cut off, and even one backstabber. This live broadcast meant so much. You have to get it right.

You take a deep breath in, and step on to the stage, ready to promote that song.

***

“Let’s just watch some TV or something hyung; you’re working too hard” Jeongguk insists, showing Yoongi out of that damned studio and into the shared living area in which the younger turns the TV on.

“M Countdown?” Yoongi questions.

“Sure, why not?”

And that’s when Yoongi heard something spectacular; what a beautiful voice! It’s hypnotic! The vocals flow so smoothly and the tune is so melodic! But he’s never seen this idol before, which makes him curious.

“Who is that Jeongguk?”

“Oh, that’s right! You don’t watch that many survival shows, do ya?”

“Um, no I guess not”

“It’s that trainee that me and Jin hyung ranted about for weeks, remember?” Jeongguk prompts. “Because she got treated unfairly, we said.”

“I see” Yoongi hums, unable to take his eyes off the TV screen despite engaging in conversation.

Yoongi doesn’t pay as much attention to rookies and debuts as some of his other band members do, to immersed in his own world trying to help create the band’s next creditable piece. Suddenly, though, he wants to know more. This girl has completely mesmerized him and caught his attention.

“So this is her debut?” asks Yoongi, his heart fluttering as the girl reaches an impressive high and long note.

“Must be” Jeongguk replies. “I did hear some rumours that they’d finally be debuting her this month.

“Crazy” Yoongi says.

“Huh?”

“I thought there would’ve been more hype than just rumours, that’s all” Yoongi coolly shrugs, trying not to give away this sudden wave of emotions being elicited from him through this girl’s singing.

“She’s good, right?” Jeongguk smiles

“Yeah…” the elder sighs. “She is…”

*****

“What do you mean they’ve dropped the contract?!” you exclaim down the phone, halting in your steps down the street.

It had been some weeks now since your debut, with high praise for the quality of your live performances… on the other hand, you can’t exactly claim the best of sales for your first single. But that must be expected, right? No rookie has debuted with a chart topper for at least 5 years now, so it’s become practically impossible.

What you weren’t expecting was this phone call, mid stroll to inform you with this piece of news. Note, this was your first bit of time you’d been able to have to relax in for ages with your heavy schedule to promote both yourself and the single.

“You’ll still be with the agency, y/n, just not to go through with the album…”

“Until when?” you ask, still a tiny bit hopeful that they might have just pushed back the date or something.

“I can’t give you an answer on that; I’m so sorry y/n…”

This was not happening. It couldn’t be. You have to take a detour from your planned route, not wanting the tears to seep out in public in a strange town.

***

Yes, it was extremely difficult to navigate around such a small country without being spotted. But Yoongi had his ways to keep on the down low at this point, having trialled and errored many a time the various ideas he and his band members came up with for subtle disguises. Funnily enough, all it takes it seems is a simple cap over a natural coloured wig and a face mask to hide most of his distinguishable features.

Today, he just wanted to shop like an ordinary person for a few essentials, to treat himself in a roundabout kind of way despite only having bought ramen, a couple of fresh notepads with pens, some deodorant that seemed like a good idea, and some sweet treats.

There’s this old shortcut that he used to take back to wherever it was he lived during his trainee days, and for some reason felt drawn to the idea of taking a trip down memory lane. Expecting to just take in the surrounding a little and observe the changes, what Yoongi didn’t anticipate was the sight he saw: a girl with her head bowed down, sat on a bench across the pavement from where he now finds himself standing still.

“This isn’t happening to me… I thought they were a more caring agency, that’s why I chose to audition for them! All they’ve done is treat me like rubbish since I joined, bar the training which I’ll admit has changed me for the better, but…”

“Maybe you should just hang in there y/n; maybe they have something else in store for you… You did always say you wanted to be part of an idol band than solo; that’s what you even told me when back when…”

You had resorted to phoning a close friend, unable to hold back your anger and not shoot the messenger. Even as you’re on the phone to her now, the doubt comes seeping in more and more; the fact that you still have a personal phone, like the agency couldn’t have cared less if you had ruined things for yourself by having relationships that could interfere with your potential career.

Still watching the upset girl, Yoongi is unable to move away, especially when the girl looks up finally, trying to find a distraction from her thoughts in her surroundings. She barely registers the presence of the stranger nearby, nor does she bother to care why said stranger appears to be staring into thin air and not doing anything in particular.

He is sure that he has seen this girl somewhere before, but he can’t get a clear enough view of her face as she uses her sleeve as a make do tissue for the tears that threaten to stream down her face. As he tries to catch a proper glance, the lack of visual information allows him to pay some attention to the conversation since he can hear her words more clearly than he can see her face.

“I know that’s what I said” you tell your friend, interrupting the rest of her sentence. “But at this point, I really can’t help but believe this is some sort of wild goose chase… It’s like I’m seeing a frickin’ mirage; it’s there, but not quite real, and the mirage is being provided by them…”

Eventually the girl that Yoongi is trying to discover reveals her face, having managed to slow down the flow of tears. He knows instantly who she is; she’s the girl from the TV that he became mesmerized by… not that he told his band mate Jeongguk who he was sat with at the time… not that he told any of his band, at that.

He’s most definitely picked up the point of conversation being held by the kind of stranger girl and feels disheartened. He’s been there, working hard a persistently to achieve his dreams and he could only imagine how that would feel to have the opportunity and hope right under his nose and then pulled away from him. Was this company for real? Were they deaf? Her voice was the most beautiful thing he had ever heard… and Yoongi barely keeps a keen ear out for singing usually.

If only there was some way he could help… Wait, should he even help? He’s never spoken a word to this girl before, so why would he even care? He figures it may be something to do with his dislike of just watching pure talent go to waste, but something is telling him it’s not solely that; he doesn’t listen to the next few lines the girl exchanges with her friends, taking in her features that he find extremely pretty despite the tears and puffiness caused by the upset.

‘Aish Yoongi, stop being so lame…’ he thinks to himself. ‘You’re going mental, probably from all these years of focusing on work; it’s nothing… Why do I want to say something to her?’

Involuntarily, Yoongi’s feet begin to move slowly one in front of the other. ‘Is it weird to approach her? What if there’s cameras around?’ Nonetheless, he continues walking because he can’t deny his caring nature. ‘You know, she’d excel if she’d have joined our place… Huh.’

“What do I do?” you plead to your friend. “Every time I think I’m gonna make it and be able to swim in that ocean of idols, I just… I always end up so alone!”

“Come audition for us” a voice interrupts, causing you to look up and then render you speechless on your end of the phone call.

I’m terribly sorry if this is highly inaccurate but I guess it’s an au so as long as it make sense, I hope that’s all that matters [tbh I’m not sure if idols even debut on M Countdown, I just chose a program I could think of at the time]… I mixed an old and a newer request and I must apologize to both anons, especially the first one, for taking so long. I also applied the song to the reader’s situation than Suga’s, if that makes sense as it fitted and helped me greatly with writing the rest.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

   "Wha….?“ A deep, drowsy voice was heard in the dark room, along with the buzzing and the soft and quiet snoring from another person — or rather hedgehog in the room.

  Shadow, the crimson-streaked black hedgehog who had woken up to the sound of a faint, quiet buzzing in his ears, groaned lowly in frustration as he was woken up from a peaceful sleep with his lover, Sonic, who apparently wasn’t bothered by the buzzing at all as he can hear how the other was slightly snoring and saw him drooling on his pillow, despite it being completely pitch black in the room.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

   He sat up slowly as to not wake up his sleeping lover, then looked down at his pillow to see a bright light shining from underneath it. Oh… So that’s what the noise was.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr~

  Reaching under his pillow, he grabbed his phone and brought it up to his face, grunting a bit from the bright light but adjusting quickly to it. He raised an eyeridge in confusion as his ruby eyes locked onto a number. Someone was calling him.

   ”Why would someone call me in the middle of the night?“ The ebony hedgehog mentally asked himself as he stared at the number. It was a number he hasn’t seen before, but, something was telling to answer. And normally, if there was a number he didn’t know, he’d just ignore it or drop the call… However… Tonight, he decided to trust his instincts.

   Slowly, he scooted himself to the edge of the bed as he answered the call. I mean, what could go wrong? It was either some person who got the wrong number or maybe some prankster who thinks it’s a good idea to call someone at this ungodly hour.

  Whoever it was, he couldn’t wait to get it over with so he could go back and join his precious blue hedgehog in sweet slumber.

   "Hello…?” He spoke softly, making sure not to wake up Sonic.
       "Um.. Is… Is t-this Shadow?“
       "S-Silver…?”


♫~Honey why you calling me so late?
It’s kinda hard to talk right now~

  “Silver?” Shadow spoke quietly but in a shocked tone, now more awake than before from hearing the ivory hedgehog’s voice.

  “Oh, h-hey Shadow.” Silver spoke from the other end, who also spoke quietly. “It’s um… Good to see you still have the same phone number.”

    To say that Shadow was surprised is a complete understatement.

    He is practically speechless to hear the ivory hedgehog’s voice after so many years of silence, especially at this hour.

   "I find it impractical to change my number. Besides, it’s what everyone has" Shadow finally answered, drawing a breath as he whispers “So, how are you?” Honestly, he had no idea what to talk to Silver about, and the latter seems to sense this.

♫~Honey why are you crying, is everything okay?
I gotta whisper cause I can’t be too loud~

   There was a moment of silence on both lines, both hesitating to speak for a moment, the silence awkward for the both of them.

   "I just want to apologize. For everything" the ivory male began, his quiet voice quivering.
       "Silver, are you okay? Are… are you crying?“ Shadow was concerned; if Silver was crying and suddenly calling him in the middle of the night… it must be something big.
       "Silver, you can talk to me, it’s okay”

 He heard the other drew a breath on the other line, and spoke softly once again.

♫~Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you~

   "I’m alright. Really I am" Silver continued “I really just want to apologize. F-for suddenly disappearing on you, and not contacting you for years. I guess I couldn’t bear to face you for my own stupidity”

   The ebony hedgehog only hummed, keeping his voice as quiet as he could as to not wake his partner peacefully sleeping beside him, a space Silver used to occupy before.

    Just what exactly happened between them? The ebony male couldn’t recall how he and Silver just… fell out of place.

♫~I guess we never really moved on~

   On Silver’s end, his partner shifted in his sleep. The ivory male tensed suddenly, gasping, fearing he had woken Mephiles up. He stayed quiet, careful not to make a single noise, before calming himself down. Mephiles didn’t wake up. Good.

    “Silver, are you still there?” Came Shadow’s worried whisper. He realized he must’ve went suddenly quiet for a while. Biting his lips, he replied in a more hushed tone, now being much more careful.



    “Yeah, I’m still here. Mephiles suddenly moved, and I thought I woke him up. Sorry for going quiet all of a sudden” Silver explained, his heart still pounding from the fright he just had.

   "It’s alright. I’m trying to keep as quiet as possible too; wouldn’t wake to wake Sonic up"
       "But really, sorry about that"

   A small smile formed on Shadow’s tan muzzle as he slowly shook his head.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

   "You know Silver" The dark hedgehog began “This reminds me of when we used to stay up late and talk back then”
       "It does?“
       "Yeah; you and I talked a lot about ourselves, and share our problems with one another”

    Shadow heard a small chuckle on the other side “Yeah, you always had helpful advice and you listen attentively” Silver answered with a quiet sigh, and a smile on his own lips. “I on the other hand didn’t have any helpful advice”

    Then Shadow continued “Remember that time when we found that butterfly with broken wings?”
       "I remember that one; we nursed it back to health even though you said it was impossible"
       "You were persistent, and I couldn’t say no; you wouldn’t accept a no to someone or something that needs help"
       "But we managed to fix the wing didn’t we Shadow?“
       "Mm hm; you had such a wide smile when the butterfly started flying”

    Chaos above, Shadow hadn’t realized how much he missed hearing the ivory male’s voice saying his name until this moment. He couldn’t help but smile.

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   "And when I made you breakfast, you always liked your coffee with only two tablespoons of sugar and creamer" Silver continued on.
       "And you prefer having hot chocolate over coffee"
       "Remember when we were watching that chick flick cause there was nothing else good on tv? You nearly knocked yourself out at how laughably cringy it was"

    This time Shadow’s grin widened “Who wouldn’t laugh at that line? ‘You… complete me’ it was over the top in my opinion”

    And he heard more light, soft chuckling on Silver’s line. Hearing the snow-furred hedgehog speak after so long was making the dark hedgehog happier.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~

   They continued to talk about the memories, with Shadow recalling all the happy moments he had spent with Silver, recalling how happy they both where when they were living together. Everything was simply perfect, like straight out of a fairy-tale perfect.

   The two males traveled further down memory lane, both are now very much awake but still kept their voices low as not to wake their respective partners.

    “There was also that one time in the beach, it was a small summer blowout, but everyone was happy and enjoying themselves” There was a melancholic tone in Silver’s voice as he spoke “Everyone had fallen asleep, but, because of my stupid thoughts and self-doubt and insecurities, it was keeping me awake and couldn’t sleep at all… remember that?”

   This time it was Shadow with a sad smile “Yeah, I remember that clearly. You were crying a lot that time”

       "And you stayed by my side even though you clearly needed to sleep and get up early for work the next day"
           "I was rubbing your back to calm you down…“
           "And I got your shoulders wet cause of the tears falling from my face”

   There was a short pause “I thumbed away tears from your face and stared into your eyes. You were simply mesmerizing underneath the moonlight”
       "Then…“ pink dusted the pale hedgehog’s face as he continued "You kissed me passionately, and held me tightly, promising me the world.”
       "Then you were finally able to sleep peacefully"


   A longer pause was held between the calls “Y-yeah.. I was, wasn’t I? It was all thanks to you. You were always there when I needed you the most”

   Listening to their conversation, Shadow couldn’t help but think to himself ’What went wrong? When did it go wrong? How did it come to this? Why did he leave? What did I do to him? Did I lack in anything? Was there something I had done to make him leave? Did I unconsciously push away? Was I at fault?’

   
He could feel the tears building up.

♫~It’s funny that you’re calling me tonight
And, yes, I’ve dreamt of you too~

The dark hedgehog took a deep breath, willing the tears away. He could feel a warmth enveloping his heart, the more he spoke to the ivory hedgehog, the longer he listened to his soft voice.

Chaos, he missed it, missed him so much…

   

Shadow’s voice quivered as he spoke “It’s funny that you decided to call me on this particular night” he tried to lighten the mood and hide from Silver the fact that his heart was breaking and swelling at the same time.

   "Is it really?“

       "It’s… It’s just been 5 years since you’ve made any contact with me, or any of us”

       "… sorry"

       "It’s alright. I dreamt of you recently actually"

       "Y-you have?“

       "mmhmm..”

   There was a short silence on Silver’s end.

   "What.. did you dream about?“

       "You leaving me”

       "…. oh…“

       "You must’ve had your reasons why you left”

       "…“

   The ebony male bit his lip. What he said must’ve upset the other even further. Commanding his voice to calm down, he decided that it’s important to cheer Silver up, given how the younger male went out of his way to call him. The silence that hovered between them was thick and enough to choke air out of a man. The last thing he wants to do now was upset his former lover.

  But what the ivory hedgehog said next was the last thing Shadow had expected to hear from him.

   "By the way, how’s life with Sonic? Looking back, it’s sort of funny how you and him are together because you really didn’t like him; Don’t get the wrong idea tho! I’m really happy you two are happy with one another, honestly!” Silver quietly explained, wishing that Shadow doesn’t think otherwise.

   After all, it was him that left, it was him that ruined their happy relationship by leaving. He didn’t have the right to get mad or jealous of who is now taking his place beside Shadow’s bed.

   Shadow took a breath before answering “He made my life better, and he’s been there for me since” he replied. However, his thoughts were slowly becoming a mess as his more honest feelings were coming out.

   

'He helped me when I was at my darkest moment in my life after you left. He was there when I was was lost, guiding me back into reality. He found me, and never left. He stayed by my side after you left me alone, hurt, heartbroken, confused, lost, angry, betrayed. He made me feel what it’s like to love someone after spending so long in desperation and desolation. You ruined me, but he brought me together again’


   The dark male could feel his blood boiling as he remembered the pain he endured when Silver left him without a word.

♫~And does he know you’re talking to me
Will it start a fight?
No I don’t think she has a clue~

   "Shadow? Shadow? Did you fall asleep?“ The younger hedgehog spoke, bringing Shadow out of his thoughts. It was only now that he realized how tightly he was grabbing the sheets beneath him. Clearing his throat, Shadow did his best to calm his raging emotions. He had gotten over that; he’s supposed to have gotten over that.

   "I’m awake; I saw Sonic move” A lie “Anyway; How are you and.. Mephiles? Does he know you’re calling me? He might get mad”

   This made Silver look over his shoulder and see his sleeping lover oh so lovingly spooning him. Smiling softly, he put his hand over the other’s and intertwined their fingers.

   "He won’t. He was actually the one who insisted that I’d call you"

♫~Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you~

    ’He did what?’

Crimson eyes widened, and the only words he could think of was “Why?”

   Shadow heard Silver take a deep breath “He said I needed it. For closure” A sigh escape from the other’s lips “I guess I really do need the closure; it’s been so long, and I want to tell you everything, but it’ll take me forever to explain. B-But I want to say that, after disappearing for five years, I hope you can still find it in your heart to forgive me”

♫~I guess we never really moved on~


   

The younger male then squeezed his lover’s hand in his, his thumb gently caressing the engagement rings.

   "I had to find myself, Shadow, find myself for who I am and what I can do. And while I was searching… I found him. And he helped me find myself Shadow. I never left you out of hate; I left because I thought it would be for the best"

   When Silver didn’t hear a reply from Shadow, he continued.

   "I found it funny tho; I never thought that I’d fall in love with someone who looked like you. I guess, in a way, I’m never over you" He let out a bitter chuckle.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

 

   "I missed you a lot Shadow; I really do.“ The ivory hedgehog added "I missed talking to you, I missed hearing your voice, so much. Looking back, sometimes I imagine how our lives would be if I… if I hadn’t been stupid. We were happy.”

'We WERE happy’

Shadow mentally repeated, ruby eyes wandering to the sleeping form of his partner. Then, his eyes ventured to the necklace dangling from Sonic’s neck, the main piece being the ring he bought. His heart broke into two.

'That ring was supposed to be for Silver as a surprise; it was a ring he always looked at whenever we passed by the jewelry store, so I began working extra hours to earn enough money for it. I wanted to surprise him, I got promoted as well. The day I finally bought it to propose to him, I come home only to find that Silver was gone.’

The dark hedgehog felt a lone tear down his cheek

'Now, Sonic wears it around his neck; a promise that he’ll never leave my side’

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   

Blinking away the tear, Shadow finally replied “If you’re wondering, yes I forgive you. Maybe it was for the best that this happened.” he said “I’m not saying that I’m glad you left; maybe that incident can be a lesson for the both of us”

   He heard Silver hum “Y-yeah… maybe it is. And thank you Shadow. For forgiving me. Honestly, I was expecting you’d drop the call the moment you found out it was me” he younger one admitted.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~


   

A part of his heart was still yearning for Silver, wanting to hold his precious ivory snowflake in his arms, to have him sleep by his side and to wake up to his bright smile. Another part however, is completely filled with his love for Sonic, and the wish to never hurt the azure hedgehog, just like how Silver hurt him. Then, a thought came to mind.

   "May I ask actually" Shadow began “Why did you call me suddenly? And closure for what?”

   Silver hesitated.

♫~It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet~

   Silver glanced at his lover once more, as if he trying to gather the courage to tell Shadow. He squeezed Mephiles’ hand tighter

   "I called because… Mephiles and I are getting married in a few weeks.“

♫~Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak~

   

Hearing those words, Shadow felt his knees go weak.

They were engaged? Getting married?? All these years of silence and he calls to tell him he was getting married to someone else??

   

The crimson-streaked male felt a lump form in his throat, his mind blank. How would anyone react to that?? Your former lover leaves you behind for whatever reason, have not contacted for five years, suddenly calls one night only to say they’re getting married!

   Shadow felt his heart break even more at the thought of Silver getting married to someone else; his precious ivory whom he’s made so many promises and dreams with. Then, he felt another part of his heart form, saying that Silver belongs to him and no one else.

   As if sensing his distress, Silver gratefully spoke "It’s a shock, I know, I honestly… I couldn’t… Mephiles said that I really needed to talk to you for closure.” His voice began to quiver again “These past few weeks after he proposed, I couldn’t sleep well; the guilt was beginning to eat me alive. I remember all the promises we’ve made, and m-my thoughts were getting the best of me again after fighting against them so hard in the p-past years and…” He had to stop; the tears were threatening to come out and he was sure that if he continued to speak, he would end up sobbing again.

   He loves Mephiles with all his heart, no doubt there. He wouldn’t trade Mephiles for the world, since he helped him grow stronger. Shadow may have held his heart, but Mephiles was the one who fixed it.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel~

   

And what Shadow said next made Silver tear up even more, and break his heart.

   "Shhh, calm down Silver, please. I don’t ever want to hear you upset.“ Oh Chaos even now Shadow was the one calming him down, even now he’s still the stronger of one of them, and even now, his concern for his well-being is heartfelt, just like old times.

   That was one of the things that Mephiles lacks; yes, he comforts him but for Silver, sometimes it was never enough. He missed the way Shadow was overly concerned for him. His fiance is not as romantically expressive as his previous lover, and in a way that was good, because he realized that he had become dependent to constant praising and assurance.

   Still, it didn’t mean that he longs for it from time to time.

   "No more tears, okay Snowflake?” The dark hedgehog whispered softly, using the pet name he gave the other all those years ago. And funny; he could almost see Silver in front of him, and, out of habit, reached out a hand to try and wipe the tears on the ivory male’s face, only to stop and realize that Silver wasn’t actually there.

   Shadow heard Silver take deep breaths, calming himself down.

♫~And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful~

    “I’m still as useless as ever after all this years” Silver joked, his voice still quivering but he has a better hold of himself now. “Thanks Shadow” He let out a breath “B-but yeah.. I really needed to get the weight off of my chest. Mephy was right; I really needed closure. I just wish I’d done it sooner than well… now. I called at a terrible time”
       "It’s alright" Shadow had to tell himself over and over that it didn’t hurt him one bit when he heard the nickname Silver gave his current lover.

   And he’s gonna regret asking this, but he was curious “What ring did he give you?”

   Now it was Silver’s turn to be confused, but he answered nonetheless “He bought me the ring I’ve always wanted; I don’t know how he knew that I really like the silver one with the turquoise finish since I never said anything. He just said that it suits me and complements my eyes”

   'So it’s the exact ring I bought for you…’

   
He knew he was gonna regret it. Oh how his heart was breaking even further, and he was starting to become possessive of the ivory hedgehog once more but he stopped himself. No, he shouldn’t be selfish; Silver deserves to be happy, even if it meant that he was no longer the reason the other was happy. Even if he was no longer the one making him happy. What they had in the past was part of the past; Silver has Mephiles, and he has Sonic. That is the present. That is the reality they are facing with right now.

   He has to truly and finally let go.

   "I remember you always looked at it when we passed by the jewelry shop. And your fiance is right; it does suit you. I’m happy you found someone who’ll make you happy for the rest of your life Silver, and who you’ll make happy" Shadow managed to smile softly. He meant what he said, every word.

♫~With the lips of an angel~

   

Ruby eyes darted to the digital clock by the bedside table, surprising him.

It’s already 3:20 in the morning?

   

“Oh wow” He uttered

       "Why?“

       "It’s past 3 am in the morning”

       "Really? Wow.. We’ve been talking for over three hours"

       "It would seem so"

   They both shared a moment of silence.

   "I’m sorry for keeping you up this late" The ivory male was the first to break the silence.

       "It’s fine; it was good hearing from you again"

       "And it’s good talking to you again. I feel like something heavy finally lifted from my chest. Thanks for listening to me Shadow"

   Shadow felt his heart grow warm, and hummed as a reply.

   "Oh and Shadow?“ Silver suddenly added.

       "Yes?”

   Silver cuddled closer to Mephiles, who’s embrace tightened around his waist “You and Sonic are welcome to the wedding. I’ll send you an invitation, if you want to go, that is. I’m planning on sending everyone invitations actually” he yawned. He hadn’t realized just how tired he was.

   "Of course we’d go. Although, you better prepare yourself for the barrage of questions they’re gonna ask" The ebony male chuckled softly in the end

.
       

“Y-yeah. I’m still actually mentally and emotionally preparing myself for that, if they ever want to attend at least”

      “Trust me. They would all attend. They miss you a lot, and are very worried about you”

   This time Shadow had decided to finally lay down beside Sonic, his free arm wrapping around his lover’s torso and his head sinking into the pillows.

   "Does this mean that you’ll contact us more often now Silver?“

       ”… yeah actually. I’d love to hang out with everybody again, just like old times.“

       "Silver, I just need to ask you; are you truly happy with Mephiles? You don’t have any regrets?” Shadow suddenly added. He wanted to make sure that Silver really was happy with his decision

   "Yes Shadow; I am truly happy and I am truly in love with Mephiles. What about you?“ Silver returned the question. And Shadow immediately answered.

       "I am very happy with my life with Sonic, and I wouldn’t trade him for the world.”

   Another yawn, although it was uncertain whose line it came from. Both were tired but both didn’t want the call to end, but they knew they had to end it, no matter how bittersweet they both felt. They had their own lives to live now, after all.

   "Well, thanks again Shadow. For everything. See you at the wedding?“

   Shadow nodded on his end "We’ll see you on your wedding day. Goodnight Silver”

       "Goodnight Shadow"

   And Silver was the first to drop the call.

  The ebony hedgehog sighed, placing the phone back beneath his pillow. He held Sonic close, taking in his scent. His heart was filled with so many emotions right now, and he had to sort them out once he wakes up from his sleep. Shadow buried his face in Sonic’s soft quills. Eyes closing, he finally joined his lover in slumber.

♫~Honey why you calling me so late?~

Can I pat your titties?

Zoro loved his cats. Mindy and Cindy were well behaved. Of course there were times when they got angry and tried clawing his eye out… The scar on his eye was a proof of how ferocious they could get. But he loved them anyway. You get kittens, you get their cuteness and flaws together.

It was Sunday and Zoro was snoring on his sofa. It was the only day he had all to himself and the cats. Mindy, the black one was curled on top of his chest and sleeping contently, rising and falling with Zoro’s breathing. Cindy, the pumpkin coloured one was settled between his legs and licking her fur clean.

A loud knocking resonated in the room, making Zoro grunt awake and lick his sleep lips, looking around to find the source of the noise. Realising it was the door, he pushed the cats off him. They jumped down and followed him to the door, trying to trip him. The knocking had not stopped for a second and it was a little annoying.

Grumbling, Zoro unlocked his door and opened it a little to see who was knocking and saw no one.

“Excuse me?” A small voice spoke out of nowhere and Zoro looked down and saw a little girl wearing a simple blue dress and looking up at him with big brown eyes and black hair. She seemed really young… Like, 3 year old young.

“Yeah?” Zoro asked, opening his door a little further and smiling down at her softly, his cats purring around his legs.

“Can I pat your titties?” She asked, swinging a little from side to side with a shy look and her hand behind her back, cheeks pinking up a little.

Zoro spluttered at the request, eyes widening slightly as he stammered out, “m-my what?”

The girl seemed to realise she said something wrong because she suddenly became fidgety and her voice gained pitch, one hand trying to push the door while she peeked in and pointed at something.

“Yes, like, those.”

Zoro followed the direction of her finger and saw them pointed to Mindy and Cindy.

“Oh!” Zoro exclaimed, “my kitties!”

The girl looked up though she kept glancing at the cats every second. “Yes!” She said simply, relaxed that Zoro got her message.

“Sure sure..” He bent down and picked up Mindy - she was the friendly one- and opened the door a little wider to sit at the entrance and held her out in his hand as Cindy hurried inside to hide.

The girl grinned and chuckled and immediately started petting Mindy who looked a little wary but let her do it anyways.

“What’s his name?” She asked, eyes alight with glee.

“Her name is Mindy.” Zoro smiled.

“He is a girl?” She asked looking at Zoro and he grinned.

“Yes, she is a girl.”

“Can I hold her?” She asked, sticking her tongue out between her teeth and lips and puffing her cheeks a little.

“Uhh…” Zoro hesitated. Cats were not good with strangers, specially kids just cuddling them. “I don’t think that a good idea.”

The girl looked crestfallen and immediately took her hand away from the cat and shifted to peek inside. “Where is the other one? Can I hold him?”

“She is probably hiding, she is very shy.” Zoro said, setting Mindy on the side where she walked away calmly to the sofa.

“Can I play hide and seek with her?” She asked, looking at him with the puppy face again.

Zoro blinked. The kid wanted to play with his cats and he honestly didn’t mind but with the rising cases of children molestation, he rather have the kid play with his cats in the presence of her mother or father.

“Where are your parents?” Zoro asked, looking up at the empty foot path and street and noticing a school bag laying at the corner of his garden path.

“Dad is getting late. He was supposed to be there to pick me up.” She turned and pointed at his neighbour’s house.

“Oh.” Zoro nodded, still not wanting to be misunderstood by the girl’s father. “Well, why don’t you wait here, I’ll bring my cats out to the garden and you can play with them.”

“Okay!!” She jumped gleefully and ran down the steps and into his garden.

Zoro went and picked up Mindy in one hand and went to the laundry room and found Cindy perched atop his washing machine. He piCked her up too, making her mew and walked out to his front door.

The girl was trying to climb on his hammock and failing, falling on her tush. He hurried forward, leaving his cats on the ground half way to her. He thought she would be crying but she just stood up and dusted the dirt off her skirt and tried climbing it again, laughing as she did. She heard Zoro approaching and turned to him with mud on one side of her face, grinning.

“Titties!” She squealed and abandoned the hammock to pursue her earlier game. Zoro snorted at the word and proceeded to seat himself on his hammock, keeping an eye on the girl as she ran after his cats, both of them seemed scared out of their lives.

He watched for two minutes when the noise of a smooth, speeding engine filled the air and Zoro turned to see an Audi Suv rushing up the lane. It screeched to a halt in front of his neighbours house and a man flung the door open to run up the porch and the front door.

Zoro turned to look at the girl crouching between two bushes where Cindy seemed to be hiding and hissing at her. Turning again, he saw the man run down the porch steps and looking up and down the footpath like a maniac.

Zoro stood up and walked over to his front gate, “Hey,” he called out and the man turned to look at him, “you lookin for your daughter?”

The man, tall and fair with blonde hair, jogged up to him with a somewhat relieved expression, “yes, is she here?”

“Yeah,” Zoro nodded, swinging the gate open for the man. “She said she wanted to play with the cats, I hope you don’t mind?”

The man looked uncertain but was distracted when the girl gave a joyous yell and ran over him. He grinned instantly and bent down as she ran into his arms and he picked her up.

“Daddy, where were you?” She asked, balanced on his arm and looking at him with a pout.

“I got stuck in a meeting darling, will you forgive me?” He asked.

“For a chocolate!” She said, nodding and Zoro snorted.

The man turned at that and smiled at him softly, “thank you.” He said.

Zoro shook his hand awkwardly, the other coming up to scratch his hair, “it was nothing.”

“I played with his titties!” The girl said, excited and not understanding what she just implied, making Zoro balk.

The man’s face went from friendly to hostile, as his head snapped in her direction, “his what?”

“Titties!” She repeated, pointing to the hedge from where Cindy had just emerged.

The fathers face reddened furiously when he understood what she meant. Eyes wide, he turned to Zoro, “why don’t you join us for dinner tonight? As a thank you?”

“That’s really not necessary.”

“No, please. Come over.” The man insisted, his eyes honest.

Zoro didn’t really have anything to do… Sunday was his day but he could definitely find some time for a simple dinner, right?

“Sure, sure.” He nodded, smiling.

“Okay.” The blonde smiled and bent down to pick the girls bag. “I’ll see you at eight?” He asked.

“Eight sounds good.” Zoro nodded again. He then realised that they hadn’t even introduced themselves, “I’m Zoro, by the way.” He said. He would extend his hand for a shake but the blondes hands seemed full.

“I’m Sanji,” the man smiled, “and this princess right here is Luffy.” Who grinned at Zoro, one of her dirt ridden hand coming up to her mouth. Sanji instantly hooked a finger on her wrist and pulled her hand down, making her pout at him as he pouted back at her.

‘They are cute’, Zoro thought.


Tbc? Drop me some prompts and we’ll see. 😁

fotboll-ar-mitt-liv  asked:

Hi! Love all your Director Sanvers works. I saw that you wanted prompts so if you could write something with them and Jamie Sawyer (Maggi's kid) it would be awesome! ❤️

It was supposed to be easy.

Two days.  Two nights.

Two days where Maggie had Jamie, but Maggie was still in a conference in Star City.  Two days where Jamie’s grandparents were going to be out of the country, so gave Maggie the option of either figuring something out, or Jamie would be going with them on their three-month vacation.

Two days.

Jamie had met Alex and Lucy.  She knew their relationship with her mother, but she had yet to spend time with them without her mother.

Two days.

One of the days was Friday, so they just had to pick Jamie up from school and feed her and get her to bed by six thirty.

Picking her up went perfectly.  Maggie had made sure they were both on the list of approved people to pick Jamie up.  Alex had made sure they were fifteen minutes early.  Lucy had spent the fifteen minutes making up stories about the other people sitting in their cars, waiting for the bell to ring.

Dinner had gone well.  There was a list of Jamie’s allergies taped to the fridge - unnecessarily, as Alex had it memorized - and the kitchen was stocked with Jamie’s favorites.  Jamie had even helped them cook in exchange for not having to help them clean the dishes.

Getting her to bed had been a little harder.  She fought as much as she could, arguing that ‘I’m almost seven, so I should start to practice staying up until seven’ and ‘Mama let’s me stay up later on weekends’ and ‘but I’m not tired.’  Alex and Lucy were ready for it, though, after Maggie had warned them that it would happen, that Jamie was going to try and test them.

It should have been easy.

It started off easy.

It was easy, until Jamie woke up in the middle of the night and threw up in the hallway on her way to the bathroom.

Alex and Lucy glanced at each other, then rushed off the couch.  Alex scooped Jamie into her arms as soon as her heaving stopped, and got her to the bathroom right before it started again.

Lucy quickly cleaned up the vomit in the hallway, grabbed her phone, then joined them in the bathroom.

Alex was leaning in the corner of the wall and the bathtub.  Jamie was in her lap, cradled against her chest.

Lucy crouched next to them and brushed some hair off of Jamie’s forehead.

“How’re you feeling?” she asked.

Jamie shook her head and pressed against Alex even more.  “Want Ma.”

“I know, sweetheart.  I’m going to call her and see if she answers, okay?”

Jamie nodded.

Lucy sent Maggie a facetime request.  It wasn’t answered, but Maggie sent her own request a moment later.

Her face appeared in the screen, illuminated from one side.  Her soft smile fell at the sight of her daughter crying and clinging to Alex.

“Baby, what’s wrong?”

Jamie sniffed.  “Stomach hurts.”

“Did you throw up?”

Jamie nodded, twisting a hand in Alex’s shirt.

“I’m sorry, baby.”

“You coming home?”

“Not yet.  But I’ll try to come home early.”

“Want you now.”

“I know.  Will you be okay with Alex and Lucy for now?  I’ll tell you stories until you feel better?”

Jamie blinked a few times, then nodded.  “Cinderella?”

Maggie smiled.  “Okay, Cinderella.  Can Alex and Lucy get you back to bed first?”

Jamie nodded, moving her hand up to wrap around Alex’s neck.  She whimpered lightly as Alex started to move, but pressed her face into the crook of Alex’s neck.  Alex held her tightly, whispering to her as she walked.

Lucy grabbed the bathroom trashcan and followed.

“She was fine until about twenty minutes ago,” she told Maggie.

“I’ll try to leave as soon as I can,” Maggie said.  “I might be able to skip the last lecture and get home tomorrow night instead of Sunday morning.”

“We’ve got her until then,” Lucy said, watching Alex climb onto Jamie’s bed, her movements awkward as the girl clung to her.

Maggie smiled lightly.  “I know you do.”

Lucy set the trashcan down where she would be able to grab it, then climbed into the bed.  She pressed close to Alex to avoid falling off the edge.  Jamie lifted her head off of Alex’s shoulder, then climbed over Alex to settle between the two adults.

Lucy held her phone so Jamie could clearly see her mother.

“Okay, baby,” Maggie said.  “You ready?”

Jamie nodded.

“Once upon a time, there lived an unhappy young girl…”

This is my entry to Hannah’s Classic Criminal Minds Quote Challenge! @reiding-and-writing

Pairing: Emily Prentiss X Reader

A/N: This fic has gone through so many changes which is why it’s so late, it was originally a different pairing, and it’s a lot different from my usual writing style. It’s also based off of a poem of the same name by Carol Ann Duffy, I can’t find it online to share so hmu if you want me to scan the poem or type it up!

Quote: “I wish psychopathic killers would be a little more respectful of our weekends, too.”

Surrounded by warm light, the sound of a tv distant in the house, hearty meals long since ate whilst their smell still lingers, red wine on your lips as you look to the flowers growing in the box outside your window. Forget-me-nots, pushing through the hard soil, their buds twisting as they search for the light. Standing behind this window you watch them grow, but after moments or years, they begin to wilt. Helpless, you push at the window, forced to watch as the petals fall and their stems crumple.


Then you wake up. Left tangled in sheets and bathed in the odd feeling of regret.


“What am I suddenly feeling remorseful for the plants I’ve killed over the years?” You ask, leaning against the counter and looking across to your friends.

“You know, forget-me-nots traditionally symbolise love. If you’re seeing them wilt maybe you’re subconsciously worried about your inability to salvage and maintain relationships.” Reid spoke first, barely missing a beat. You have to laugh at his words. Sure enough they were true, your most recent attempts at dating had been pitiful at best.

Yet even so, the bitter taste of spiced cherries and heavy oak still lingered just out of reach. And as you lean against the counter, a cup of crappy coffee in your hand, you can practically taste it again.

“Maybe it’s just irony?” Emily adds, stirring her coffee.

“Or a disturbing way to show my lack of gardening knowledge?”

“Actually, the window suggests that you may be a voyeur to relationships, gardening probably doesn’t have much to do with it.” As Reid speaks, you and Emily share a look, eyebrows raised over your cups of coffee.

“And somehow, that is more disturbing.” The three of you begin walking back to your respective desks. The coffee giving you the added incentive to begin dealing with the paperwork and cases piled on the side of your desk.
