hot plume

Ectober, Day 1, Black Cat

It wasn’t the black powder makeup, or the “hairy sweater”, or even the yellow eyes that really brought it over the top. It was the fingernail, the painstakingly acrylic-glued long black claws at the end of each hand. “Well?” Tucker asked with a mouthful of plastic fangs. “What do you think?”

“I…” It was terrible. A costume that walked out of a 90’s music video, a cheap costume rip off of the Thriller, and by all standards tacky. “Tucker, I can’t lie. I love it.”

Tucker lit up, his yellow-contacts reflected the midnight lamp light and his mouth split his painted face in two, “Yeah?”

“It is the single greatest thing I have ever seen.” Danny ran a hand through his hair, cold wind whistled through the trees and he zipped his jacket up to his neck. “Everyone’s gonna hate it.”

“I’m hoping to get us kicked out of the Halloween party before we even walk through the door.” Tucker tossed a black sack over his shoulder and started down the block, “That way I’ll have plenty of time to, you know, actually Halloween.”

“You’re too old to actually Halloween.”

“I meant Ghost Hunting!”

“We do that every day.”

Tucker adjusted his sweater, straightening it in a way that was literally just for the effect of seeming like he had important clothes to wear and places to go, “Not as a werewolf.”

I have a prompt for you! Person A's car is down and is forced to call Person B for help. They are not exactly the best of chums.

A/N: Well this got out of hand. *typos all my own*.

Shit. Fuck. Damn.

Name your expletive and it most likely passed Emma Swan’s lips in the five minutes after her (not so) trusty bug puttered out, grounding to a halt by the side of the deserted country road. Those five minutes were spent poking around under the hood before she heard an ominous hissing sound, punctuated by loud pop and the release of a plume of hot steam that narrowly missed her face.

(And of course it was three am and this being goddamn middle-of-nowhere Maine the only garage in town wouldn’t open until at least ten).

She was at least a half hour drive from Storybrooke and even further in the other direction from the last vestiges of civilisation she had passed on her way home. That wasn’t a walk she relished in the pitch-blackness of the unlit road. But…

Urgh.

She couldn’t call Mary Margaret or David - not only did they both work early in the morning but they had a small son and she was pretty sure they would kill her if she woke him with a phone call. Belle was back in Australia visiting her mother. Ruby never answered her phone and could also sleep through a hurricane.

And that just left…

Killian.

Fuck.

It is one of the most massive galaxies known. A mere 46 million light-years distant, spiral galaxy NGC 2841 can be found in the northern constellation of Ursa Major. This sharp view of the gorgeous island universe shows off a striking yellow nucleus and galactic disk. Dust lanes, small, pink star-forming regions, and young blue star clusters are embedded in the patchy, tightly wound spiral arms. In contrast, many other spirals exhibit grand, sweeping arms with large star-forming regions. NGC 2841 has a diameter of over 150,000 light-years, even larger than our own Milky Way and captured by this composite image merging exposures from the orbiting 2.4-meter Hubble Space Telescope and the ground-based 8.2-meter Subaru Telescope. X-ray images suggest that resulting winds and stellar explosions create plumes of hot gas extending into a halo around NGC 2841.

Sara Lance sighed, her hot breath a plume of white mist in the frigid air, stopping in her steps to look up at the sky. The back of her neck was tingling and she knew why. Having been called as a Slayer three years ago at the age of seventeen, she quickly grew accustomed to the feeling. Now twenty, her senses were only MORE in-tuned to her surroundings. 

‘Why me?’ she thought, slowly turning around to see a familiar face with icy blue eyes and shortly cut hair. He was wearing black jeans and a black leather jacket tonight. She gave him a bored look, ringed fingers taking out her stake she had tucked in the waistband of her pants to intimidate the vampire who suddenly felt the need to always bother her while on patrol. 

“Slayer.”

“Vampire,” she said back, eyes narrowed as he found a tombstone to lean against before looking at her. Not in the mood for games she cocked her hip to the side. “What do you want?”
