girls: fact fiction

I have a bunch of paragraphs that might one day become an absurdly long fic about Lance and the Blue Lion being BFF.

(The basic plot is ‘You can keep mental conversations with your lion and Blue really likes having someone to talk to after spending 10000 years stuck in a cave on Earth. Also, Lance is her Paladin and she goes full Mama Lion on him’.)

Anyway, I wrote the Mandatory Angsty Scene that doesn’t fit anywhere and that only exists because I’ve been lurking on the “Lance McClain” tag for a week and it’s full of langst (what did this kid do to us that we keep hurting him?), so of course I was influenced, but which I don’t think I’ll ever use for anything, so here it is, in all its glory.


He’s about to get killed and his first thought is that he didn’t fold his clothes before leaving his room.

It pops into his head, that his clothes are strewn across the room and someone will have to go in there to put everything in order at some point. Thank goodness it won’t have to be his mom.

He’s never seeing his mom again.

He’s never going home again.

He’s never taking Blue to Cuba.

Blue might be destroyed here.

“I’m so sorry, Bonita,” Lance whispers, not caring that the others might hear him through the comms.

Blue’s warm in his head, as sorrowful as he is. She’s mourning him, because she might survive, but he most definitely won’t.

“You could at least try to comfort me,” he tells her, sounding far more amused, far more cheerful than he feels.

He can distantly hear the others calling him through the comms, giving instructions to try to help him, or just repeating something (his name, the word 'no’, pleads), but he can’t pretend he has any chance of surviving.

“I’ll remember you,” Blue says.

And, okay, that is actually a comfort.

Ah, he has such a nice voice. ^_^

Imagine a world without me - say you’re falling apart
Let’s pretend you’ve missed me for a while
Wouldn’t you say you were lonely and love was breaking your heart?
Put on your Sunday best and fake a smile

I dream of dreaming dreams of her - in twilight she’s a constant blur
The picture is clear and I’m still fact she’s fiction

Remember the night you were with me - fell asleep by my side
Strangers together - your hand in mine
How come we never came closer when all the stars were aligned?
I thought we had a moment

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

Nothing has changed cause I’m still fact - she’s fiction
Or I may be imperfectly formed in this contradiction

I dream of dreaming dreams of her - in twilight she’s a constant blur
The picture is clear cause I’m still fact she’s fiction

I fell in love with her longing - let’s just say that she never found out
Who it was she never found in me

You know you cast / a long shadow / on the ground

In Love Across the Universe I’ve started to try to woo K1-B0 because he’s one of the 3 characters I have all the friendship fragments for plus he’s a Very Good Robot, and I phrased it like this to my brother.
“Behold!  All of these attractive boys and girls for you to pick from!  I pick… THE ROBOT.”

To which he replied: “Hey at least you’re not trying to date the serial killer.”

I then had to admit that I had indeed tried to get a piece of that too before coming to my senses.
