Imagine Person A of your OTP hearing Person B screaming in horror from another room. Completely terrified about why B would be screaming, A rushes into the room only to find B crouched in the corner in a defense stance, staring wide eyed at a spider.
Alternative: Person A receives several texts from Person B, telling them to come back as soon as possible, to hurry and go home, and that they need someone to protect them. A immediately leaves where/whatever they were doing to rush home, only to.. [top]
Prompt: Riley & Lucas’ first Christmas together A/N: In light of recent events I wanted to write some super
cute fluff to cheer myself up. And because nothing cheers me up more than
Christmas time I thought it was an appropriate theme. (My first Christmas Rucas fic!!) Word Count: 1,734
This year will be mine and Riley’s first official Christmas
together. Even though we were dating last year, my parents decided to bring me
along with them to Texas for the holidays so I wasn’t actually able to spend
Christmas with her. We had to exchange gifts a week before. Don’t get me wrong
it was still fun but it wasn’t as special. This year will be different though.
I plan to make up for last years and set the bar high for Christmases to come.
Mr. and Mrs. Matthews were kind enough to allow me to set up
an advent calendar on their living room wall. Basically, there was 24 gifts for
the 24 days leading up to Christmas. I strung up a string of lights and
attached to it were 24 cards and inside each card was a clue as to where the
present was hiding in their apartment.
They weren’t anything too big or expensive. I saved up most
of my money from working in Mrs. Matthews’s café after school hours. They were
small cute things I knew Riley would love or just things I knew she needed. I
saved the biggest gift, obviously, for actual Christmas day.
On December first I hurried over to Riley’s after my shift
at Topanga’s was over. I made her promise me to not open the first advent clue
until I got there. We were both pretty excited. So much so that our friends wouldn’t
stop making fun of us. I didn’t care though, this was my first Christmas with
her and I wasn’t going to let anybody try and ruin that.
I run up the fire escape and crawl through her opened
window. I spot her sitting on her bed waiting anxiously for me to arrive. I can’t
help but smile ear to ear when I see the look on her face when she sees me.
“YAY!” She yells. “You’re here.” She runs over and wraps her
arms around me, pulling the rest of my body through the window.
“Someone’s excited.” I tease knowing very well I was just as
“Is it obvious?” She scrunches up her nose in embarrassment which
just makes her look even more adorable.
“When he pulled the now pale skinned platinum blonde from the chemicals he felt an odd sensation… It wasn’t hatred, it wasn’t irritation. So what could it have been? When she flashed him a grin it hit him, it was much more than he had realized he could feel. It ran deeper in him than his negativity, it was more consuming than his hatred. This woman was not who she once was, she was someone else. Someone more like him, someone he could relate to. And it was all his own doing, he knew that. He’d cracked the shell of the Harleen he’d once known and unleashed something else. The woman he held in his arms now was his creation, and for this, he was proud.”
“Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, but they share the same sky — one sky, one destiny.”
I love this scene so much. Especially the line of Clarke saying “what if it was too dangerous and I sent him in there anyway?” People think Clarke realized Bellamy was in fact not worth the risk in 3x02 but she was feeling this way so much sooner. They could have written L to say literally anything but instead they have her say “You care about him.” This was very deliberate. We know L had romantic feelings for Clarke by then, and this comment she makes..it’s curiosity. You could even call it jealousy.
Look at the way Clarke responds. It takes her a moment to formulate the response. There’s nothing automatic about it, she’s gotta think first. She turns to face L when she says “I care about all of them” as if to say ‘see I’m looking you in the eye as I say this, it’s true, believe me’
L does the same as she turns to face Clarke, looks her in the eye, and says matter of factly “Yet you worry about him more.” It’s not a question. It’s a flat out statement.
And Clarke doesn’t deny it. She gets angered actually. She tries to cover it up by saying “We need him” but soon after her guilt becomes apparent. That if something happens to him, she’ll have no one to blame but herself for telling him he was worth the risk. And she’s flat out pissed. She sent Bellamy in there because if love was weakness then she couldn’t let herself feel it. Not again, not after hearing Finn’s last breath in her ear. She’s pissed because it was L’s “Love is Weakness” motto that encouraged a still grieving and heartbroken Clarke to suddenly change her mind and tell Bellamy to go.
L tries telling her this is what it means to be a leader, “we must look into the eyes of out warriors and tell them go die for me” and Clarke responds with “if only it were that easy.” Because Bellamy’s not her warrior. He’s not her “knight”. That’s the last thing she wants him to be.
He became much more then that. And that’s proven just 4 episodes later in the 3x02 scene where we see her beg for his life. He did what he was suppose to do right? He fought for her like a good warrior would, he tried to protect her and save her like a good knight would. But when it came down to it, she’d give herself up before feeling that kind of worry again.
And suddenly the finale scene, Clarke’s face upon hearing “Start with Bellamy Blake” makes even more sense. All this time she tried so hard not to let herself be weak, she tried so hard to push down, and bury, and build a wall around these feelings so that she’d never have to worry or see something happen to him because of her. And now ALIE knows her #1 weakness is him and she doesn’t even have the words to express the fear we saw in her eyes.
