It's time once again for the increasingly misnamed "Rainy Days and Mondays" prompt, a chance to torture your darlings with a few hundred words of romantic angst. This week....we are pulling out the stops....

This week's prompt is: No happy endings -- one more time for the good times.

Write us a story about two of your characters who have decided it's done. Maybe one's moving on and the other is demolished about it. Maybe neither one is sure they can take it but....circumstances dictate, and they're just heartbroken cogs in a machine too big for either of them to fight.

But before they part....there will be one more time, and this is it.

Guh. It's killing me already and you haven't even started writing it yet!  Please, if you do write it, link back here and share the angst and this week I'll write a fic in return for anything posted by 5/27.

If you need a little more inspiration, here are the lyrics to the song that I thought of when pulling this together. It was, much to my family's bemused, head-shaking confusion, my grandmother's absolute favorite song of all time. I think there are things we might never have know re: Gram.  ;)

Guh. Very well done - I don't know the fandom and it still had me sad for poor Cameron. :\. Honest of John, except maybe he let it get a little too deep.

Can I write you an SPN fic? prompt/characters/rating welcome!

Wow- thank you for sharing this. It was very relatable, intense and sad, despite the fact that there was no room for anything but a goodbye. Very befitting of the prompt. Well done!

If you'd like, I'd be glad to write a 'last time' reward fic - the fandoms I can write in these- feel free to pick a pairing or just a show.
H50
Lost
Supernatural - Dean/Cas or most any other pairing but no Wincest
Torchwood - Jack/Ianto
Fringe
Sherlock

Aw, thank you for reading!

I wasn't expecting a reward since I'm such a procrastinator with my posting sometimes but I'd love a SPN fic, please. I do love Dean/Cas so that would be perfect. Or anything Gabriel because I adore him. Thank you!

All righty then, Destiel it will be - might take a few days, as I'm going home in the AM to see the fam. But I'll be noodling it over.

Your reward fic is posted! I wasn't going to use the last time prompt but then did and ...I'm afraid it came out sad. :\. Gah. Sorry, hope it's enjoyable anyway.
