Ain't it beautiful?

You can choose one, you can choose all. Give us a drabble or an icon! You can give us more if that's where the idea takes you, but the idea of the perfect little 100 words or 100x100 pixels getting the point across is simply beautiful. It's tough to cram in all the information into that tiny space! Who's up for it?

Today's prompts:
Beneath the smiles
Crystal blue persuasion
Out of the woods
Wind Chimes

Note: Rather than pulling a specific set of numbers from the list, I went through it and pulled some I really liked, some that meant a lot to me. I'm really looking forward to what we get.

Also: I know there have been repeats, sorry, clearly I am fallible, we'll just all try to work through it together.

Awesome! I especially like #1, and nobody would expect THOSE eggs for #5! (In space, no-one can hear you scream)

Beneath the smiles
Smile, but not so much that people think you're insane!

crystal blue persuasion
Inspired to do two today!

01. The Walking Dead, Daryl/Beth in the funeral home, 100 words


Daryl shifts uncomfortably on the bench. "Already told ya no."

"But this one's much better with harmony."

He shifts his gaze from the piano keys to her face, and finds himself unable to look away from the upturn of her mouth, her cornflower hair and her wide unblinking blue eyes. And it's not like she ever asks for anything from him.

The garbled noise coming out of his mouth sounds like a dying frog next to Beth's beautiful voice, but when she smiles and leans her head on his shoulder during the chorus the embarrassment is all worth it.


02. Once Upon a Time, Rumple/Belle, 100 words


"No, Belle. There's absolutely no reason for us to get involved in the Charming's little adventure with this week's monster. It's time Snow learned to lead."

"And we just let the town suffer while she figures it out?"

"Storybrooke has survived sorcerers, giants—"


Her hand on his arm gives him pause; he swallows and feels his resolve fading when she runs her fingers into his nape. And when she blinks lazily up at him and murmurs, "I'm sure I could think of some reward for your service," it crumbles altogether.

He could drown in those eyes.

Do you need more prompts? Five has plenty to spare. Just ask Trekster.
Mar. 20th, 2015 02:12 pm (UTC)
I don't need them, but I'll take them.

I thought I had been marking them as used, but apparently not, so repeats have been showing up.

Drabble for Beneath the Smiles
Les Miserables (111 words)


Grantaire stood watching but watching more the people than anything. There was a clear divide in the common populous. Those stood where Grantaire was looked forlorn and tired whereas near where the noble’s sat there were laughing and grinning people. The merriment did not seem apt but happiness was the best defense in these times. Beneath the smiles the people were terrified. They were scared of what could happen if anything turned the Lord’s wrath onto them. These people were most commonly the hiding magicians. The one’s that, if the Lord ordered a cleansing, would be the first to be put down. It was camouflage in the basest instinct. A smile.

Crystal blue persuasion
Arrow, Diggle/Felicity, 100 words

Diggle is never late for work, a carry over from his time in the army. The alarm goes off, he shuts it off and his feet hit the floor in one smooth motion. Then straight into the shower, dress, breakfast and go. 

Diggle is never late for work, until recently. 

Because recently when the alarm goes off, there is a sleepy body heavy on his chest, one that does not want to move. "Five more minutes," Felicity mumbles, heavy-lidded blue eyes blinking up at him and just like that, he is lost. 

Lost, and he doesn't want to be found.

Arrow, Diggle/Felicity, 100 words

Felicity is ready to go home. Head pounding, her body aches with tiredness, she can't look at her screens a moment longer. She and Diggle walk hand in hand to their car, his jacket over her shoulders, then he stops. 

"Look," he says, "the sun's coming up." 

She sees the fiery orange through a gap in the buildings. Tired as she is, it makes her smile. "It's beautiful."

"I know." 

His tone makes her shiver and when she finds him looking at her, she shivers again at what she sees in his eyes. 

Now she really wants to get home.

Sunrise (prompt: sunrise), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel/Buffy Summers, PG-13, 100 words

character death

The phone call came in the middle of the morning when he was still sleeping. Buffy was gone.

Angel stood on the rooftop overlooking the City of Angels, just like he had all those years ago, waiting for the sunrise. The last time he’d destroyed the ring that would’ve allowed him to live during the day.

But he didn’t think about anything, not even the helpless. He didn’t want to exist without her. As the first rays of sun caressed his skin and he began to splinter and burn, Angel smiled with the realization that now he wouldn’t have to.

I wrote two for today. Yes, still feeling the McDanno angst and missing the show tonight. :D

Beneath the smiles
Danny smiled politely at his partner as he spoke to Amber.
Steve watched and waited. Lately, it seemed he was always watching and waiting for Danny. He glanced at his watch and gave Danny his best "we need to get out of here" look to hurry him along. He should have walked out at that point because he didn't need to hear the end of the phone conversation. Like a knife to the heart.
"I'm ready," Danny said as he tossed the keys to Steve. "You okay?"
"Yeah, great." Steve smiled his best smile as they walked to the car.


Steve contemplated slamming his head against the window but decided against it. Danny would only ask questions and Steve wasn't ready to explain why he feels nauseous every time Danny calls her. It only makes things worse since they're on another stakeout.
In the car.
No escape.
On the other hand, they were there together in the car on another stakeout. He checked his watch and realized it was almost time. "Look."
Danny said goodbye to Amber, looked through the windshield and smiled. "Gorgeous as always."
Steve smiled and knew the sunrise was the reason he loved stakeouts with Danny.

what she wants, agents of shield, phil/melinda, r
(prompt: beneath the smiles, words: 100)

Based on this gif

Melinda has three smiles.

The first is a smile she gets when she is truly happy. The second is the smile she gets when she wins a battle. And then there was this one she flashes as she sits on the bed in only her nightgown, looking straight at him.

It’s wider than usual. It’s almost like her dimples are touching her cheeks. Her brown eyes are dark with want. That smile tells Phil she wants him….no she craves him.

Melinda grabs his tie….fingers brushing over the material.

She doesn’t hesitate to pull Phil’s head between her thighs.
