HO SNAP MEME.

For my pairing, I choose....Serenade/Brooklyn? Or Falcetto/Lexington, whichever you feel like writing. XD

Going with Lex x Falcetto, 'cause I haven't written Lex in so long and I totally miss him.

---

He remembers as a hatchling, watching the courting pairs of his clan skydance. He remembers the way they would twirl about each other, rise and fall, dip and dive, only to end tangled together.

It's disheartening to remember, because he would love nothing more than to show this wonderful human girl how he feels through a skydance. And, of course, humans can't fly, and to soar with her in his arms just wouldn't be the same. Not to mention, he doubts he could stay aloft for long if he had to hold her, considering the make of his wings.

He doesn't know who it is that tips her off, but he's grateful for it when she takes his hand one day, urges him to lead her to a place on the roof where they can be alone. He doesn't get to ask what she has in store; he no sooner takes a starting breath and she has a finger to his lips, hushing him.

There is no music as she leads him in a dance, and she giggles girlishly every time he stumbles, obviously not at all used to the way humans dance. But he learns fast, and soon he's leading her, and he dips her, lifts her, twirls her around as instinct tells him to do.

Somewhere during their dance, he forgets there's solid stone beneath his feet and completely understands that silly human saying, walking on air.

He thinks he's clever, flitting around in her world as a cold breath of air or a shadow seen from the corners of her eyes. He thinks he's one step ahead, that she has no idea, but Lydia has been waiting for his return for years.

She lets him play his game for awhile, just to see how far he'll take it. She's surprised when he doesn't go much further than influencing her dreams. This goes on for weeks, the chills and the darkness and the not-quite-nightmares, and then she decides if he isn't going to make a move, she will.

She takes out her old polaroid camera on particularly chilly day, and, fast as lightning, snaps a photo. In her hand, she watches it develop, watches the colors bleed in, and sure enough, there's a small speck of white that doesn't belong.

She grins. "Gotcha."

And his laughter echoes throughout the house, loud and clear, and he always knew coming back to her would be worth it.

And maybe this time, they'll get it right.

Sora/Kairi, told from Riku's point of view (and, if possible, with hints of "I Want My Beloved to Be Happy" on his part?).

The adventure is over, the worlds are safe, and the Princess found her Prince and he gave her back her heart, not to mention a little of his own, just for good measure. They say nothing's changed, but they're wrong. Everything has changed – it just happened so naturally, only the odd man out would notice.

But, he thinks, as he watches them run the length of the shore, maybe things could have been different, if only he hadn't surrendered to the darkness.

But, he surmises, watching them tumble to the sand together, maybe it isn't so bad, even if it hurts now and again. It's cliché and it's corny and it's the stuff that mouse would speak of, but so long as Sora's happy, then Riku supposes he's happy, too.

Oooh! Another one!

Um... umm.... okay, don't shoot me. But! I've had the weirdest craving for Vegeta fic lately. As in DBZ. Yeah, that old thing. Wanna take? ^^;

If not that, then... something with the color red in it! Yes, I'm feeling pretty random right now.

He never thought he'd love another woman as much as he'd come to love Bulma. Hell, he never thought he'd come to love Bulma as much as he did, but that was another story entirely.

Now, he has her in his arms, and she's small, and she's batting the most gorgeous blue eyes up at him, her giggling voice near Heavenly to him. He can't help but stare at her with his brow furrowed, because he still can't believe the way he feels for her. It has only been months, so perhaps in time he'll understand, but for now, he hasn't the slightest clue.

The others taunt him, and he'd be lying if he said he didn't care, but even it angers him, he never once denies his feelings for her.

This little girl - his little girl – means everything to him.

'cause you know he's a good daddy and he loves his Bra. <3

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I love it, I love it, I love it!! Sorry the response is late, the last few days killed me. But I love it!! I have a bit of a soft spot for daddy!Vegeta. I remember that scene in GT where Vegeta was coming home from shopping with Bra, and she had about a billion packages, and she was all kyoot and bouncy, and he was all grumpy... *fluffs him*

Thanks a lot, sweets! It hit the spot. I've been craving DBZ for some reason. ^^

Yay! I'm glad you liked it! That was so my first time writing daddy!Vegeta. Mostly 'cause I ignore GT and stick to Z and kind of forget about Bra sometimes. ^^; But either way, glad you like it! :D

omg. I think I'm starting to like this pairing, for the mindfucks and the power-games. o_o;

She suggests rest, that he should be left alone, but that's only because she doesn't realize Aladdin's long gone and all that's left is Mozenrath. Had that bumbling blue buffoon arrived one second earlier and destroyed his machine, the transference would have never worked, but it had worked, and these fools are none the wiser.

“They can go,” he says, Aladdin's voice dripping with something dark and dangerous as he grabs on to her arms, “you can stay.”

Assuming he's Aladdin and that Aladdin's still isn't well, she scolds him for being so crude, but when the bird and the monkey and the carpet and the djinn leave, she's all his. And he wonders if this is - was - routine for her and her precious street rat, if he would always make the suggestion, and she would slowly strip down to nothing like a common harem girl. If then she would always drag her nails across his chest, slough off the like a useless, second skin, then work him free of his pants.

When they are finished, he thinks of telling her the truth, to simply see the disgust and horror and sorrow on her pretty face, but decides against it.

He'll wait until after she weds the body, after she'll have handed Agrabah over to him on a golden platter.

Haha I am so glad someone requested this. It's awesome, plz write more! It would be a cool challenge to write something based on this scenario if you are thinking of continuing it. I would really look forward to it!

There was a little typo that makes me wonder what the missing word(s) is!! (...slough off the __ like a useless, second skin)

XD It was all I could think of for the pairing, so I went with it. Glad it's liked, though, especially by you. I actually thought it'd be interesting for someone to write this scenario out as a full fic, and was surprised when I realized nobody hadn't already. I don't know if I'll continue it, though. I might, as longfic (I've sworn off chaptered fics for now, considering I never seem to finish them) some time in the future. It helps to no some people are interested! :D

And, oh, damnit. The word was "vest". XD *fixes(*

Haha, Katie Ann and I have played off the episode with our joint fic "Entangled," but it's much lighter and doesn't involve killing off Aladdin, lol. Just putting Mozenrath and Al in the same body for a while...poor Jas, how can she decide?

Don't swear off chapter fics! You can finish one, I believe in you. lol

Antiphony was actually the first long fic I finished. I was also terrible with commitment to writing long pieces, but it is possible!

From: [identity profile] shini02.livejournal.com
*looks for that fic*

Haha. I have one or two finished, or near finished anyway, but I always get distracted and move on to other fandoms or fics too soon. I eventually go back to them, but I really don't want to start something new until I work on what I have already. XD

Wow. And that fic is long. I've been reading on and off when I have time, and it's amazing, btw. :)

From: [identity profile] cantareincminor.livejournal.com
Aw, glad you like Antiphony! Could you please only stick to the one on ffnet? I'm too lazy to take down the ones on other sites but I am really unhappy with the ending, and I'm currently revising from chapter 22 onward. Hopefully it'll look a lot more mature when it's done.

:)

Hope to see your finished fiction soon. Maybe all you need is more readers to push you forward.

That's the one I'm reading! :) I really like what I've read so far. It really gets you going, and I'm just about as frustrated as Jasmine is trying to figure out what his plan is. XD

Aww, thanks. And you know, that could very well be true. I know I have a lot of readers, but they're silent fans, and sometimes I guess I'd just like some encouragement other than a fave or an alert, y'know? ^^; God, that sounds so whiny and emo.

From: [identity profile] cantareincminor.livejournal.com
I ranted against silent readers in Antiphony: Outtakes in quite emo fashion. I was so frustrated too that the hit count would go up but the reviews wouldn't. Since then I started to care less maybe because I realized there was so much to improve on in my writing that many reviews seemed premature and undeserved. Hence I deleted all author's notes from Antiphony this time around, it makes me cringe reading the first version and seeing how I begged for reviews basically every chapter. But I really appreciate the few readers who took the time to write emails to me and keep in contact regularly. Their feedback means the most!

From: [identity profile] shini02.livejournal.com
I agree with that! Silent readers can be a tad annoying, 'cause, hey, everyone likes their ego stroked now and then, but every hit counts, and so does every review from the die-hard followers. <3

She reminds him of a ghost as she wanders the house, fingers tracing the ruined walls, eyes vacant, as though waiting for a memory to rise up, remind her how exactly she came to be here, and why she stays.

He promised Pietro he wouldn't say anything, if only because now she wasn't so angry and bent on revenge, and the silver-tongued speed-demon had convinced him all too easily that maybe he stood a chance with her now.

He wanted to believe that, he truly did, but it was becoming increasingly more difficult when she was clearly slipping away from herself more and more each day. How could she learn to so much as like him (forget love at this point) when she was too busy trying to figure herself out? She couldn't, he knew, and yet he stayed and he hoped because despite all of the times she'd hurt him, emotionally and physically, he couldn't bring himself to stop caring now.

If anything, he felt stronger for her. A need to protect her, because she was fragile now, and it wouldn't take much to break her. A slip of the tongue, a brought-up memory meant to be forgotten, and she would shatter, and it would be worse than when she had first arrived.

And even if he wants to put all of her missing pieces back together, he just can't do that to her.

He can't be the one to break her.

So he watches as she fails time after time to remember, as she descends into dark places in her mind no one ever suspected she'd have.


And when the world crumbles at her feet, he'll be the only one who doesn't judge.

Thank you for being so nice to me! I was going to request Ryu x Nina from Dragon Quarter, but that is more or less canon and there already exist fics with them. If you are fine with silly challenge, how about some romantic yuri prose between Nina x Lin? I have never seen that happen

Uhm. I don't know what Dragon Quarter is. O_o; Perhaps you should make sure I'm into the fandom you request before making a request.

Oops! I thought it was an anything goes kind of deal when I asked for that. Dragon Quarter is this weird video game I like, maybe you will like it too. Keep in mind that the learning curve is a bit steep! How about Demona x Brooklyn? In one of the AU episodes they were actually together. I thought it was cute, maybe even better than the girl she actually ends up with. Sorry!
