100 words, for a three-sentence prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic: "hope is a lie - this is where angels die". Aziraphale/Crowley deathfic.

Grim Salvation

They found them after the battle: an angel lying still and silent, deep in the Devil's half of the field, cradled gently in a demon's arms against the horrors that surrounded them. Despite the chaos and the cruelty around them, the angel lay untouched, his single wound a swift, sure stroke into his heart, and by the demon's trembling hand there lay a sword.

"They didn't hurt him," the demon whispered hollowly, and in his eyes there was no victory, only a love enacted without hope, and that last and terrible mercy that had been all he'd had to give.

Tiny original drabble for a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic: 'any supernatural character, take me home'.

The Wanderer

The skeleton nestled inside the suitcase: the long bones laid first, the ribcage above them, the skull tucked carefully on top. Folded, like a suit. Someone had packed it very neatly. The address on the label was a town half a continent away.

Anna stared at it, her terror blanketed by a sudden, horrified comprehension. She drew a ragged breath, and turned to look at the pale figure behind her in a new and terrible light.

"Take me home," he asked hopelessly, holding out a hand in bleak entreaty. "Please. Take me home?"

And in strange, distant determination, she agreed.
Ten 10 word fills for the prompt: "Lord of the Rings, Any, Recovery".

Afterwards

Faramir/Éowyn

He held her warrior's hands, and shared her pain gladly.

Merry & Pippin

They were small, but not lost, having refound each other.

Éomer & Théoden

The king's mantle was light, for proudly rested the dead.

Aragorn/Arwen

The star of evening faded gladly, and found shared joy.

Galadriel & Elrond & Gandalf

Their shoulders were lighter, for duties at last laid down.

Frodo & Bilbo

The sea cradled them gently, until feet forgot their weariness.

Sam/Rosie

Her smile welcomed him, so that his heart found home.

Legolas & Gimli

Two hunters, their promises fulfilled, limped together across the sea.

Thranduil & Legolas

The forest, untainted at last, they named Greenleaf. In memory.

Middle Earth

The scars of darkness faded, became memory, legend, and lost.
For a 100 word prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic. The prompt was: MCU, Tony/Pepper, Charity Date Auction.

Price of Love

Tony stared at her, his expression somewhere between wary and grateful. Mostly, though, he looked stupefied.

"Did you just ...?" he started, bemused, and she leaned in to press her fingers to his lips, smiling faintly.

"I did," she agreed. "You looked like you needed rescuing, and I needed a trophy date for the evening. You don't mind, Mr Stark?"

He blinked, an odd little grin curling on his lips. "Pep, you just dropped the price of a few Ferraris on me. I don't think 'mind' comes into it."

She pulled him close, smiling herself. "Love never does come cheap, Tony."

For a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic of: "Even a [animal of your choice, not a cat] can look at a king." Can anyone guess what I've been re-reading lately?

Local Delicacies

"Even the lowest cur may look at a king."

"Yeah. And even a pigeon can crap on his head, too. Incidentally, lad, can I interest you in a pigeon pie? Very popular local delicacy. 'Specially at open-air events. Coronations and the like ..."

For a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic. Bruce and Rhodey, watching Tony.

Gremlins

Bruce blinked. "Right," he decided. "No chocolate after midnight. Got it."

Rhodey grinned. "This is why you should always listen to Pepper," he agreed. "Don't worry. These days, he only gets about four hours out of it. You should have seen him back in MIT. That was crazy."

They both looked at the pair of legs sticking up out of a hole in the lab floor, one of them kicking slightly as Tony tried to get purchase in the crawlspace, yelping as he did some arcane and possibly lethal thing involving electricity.

"Right," Bruce echoed, distantly. "That was crazy. Sure."

More or less random John Druitt introspection. Set before Haunted, but when I'm not sure.

Rating:  PG-13
Fandom:  Sanctuary

Disclaimer:  Not mine

Look, before anyone asks, when I'm tired and stressed, I tend to take notions. Random, strange things that lead ... well, to things like this -_-; Though I'm partially blaming John Druitt for this, for that line in FKAC that helped spark this one: "Like a theater troupe". Which bounced me to the darker side of Victorian entertainment, and further, to the dark sides of circuses, and gave you ... this.

Title: The Great and Secret Show
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Sanctuary
Characters/Pairings: The Five (sort of)
Summary: Roll up, roll up. Come, ladies and gentlemen. Come see the secrets at the heart of Empire - a very skewed view on the Five
