ficathon: song lyrics  


source

This Ficathon Sponsored By: a desperate need for fic and music before I have to take a hiatus and try and graduate etc.

The Basics

1. The prompts should be based on song lyrics. Also add a link to the song in question. (Mostly just to give us something to listen to and because it's interesting to see everyone's song associations with a text, which is actually great insight into how someone views a character or a ship etc).

2. Prompt as much as you want. It is a truth universally acknowledged, where there is a fandom there are people searching for fic for it.

3. Feel free to post any fanvideo that made you relate the song to the fandom/ship in the first place.

4. Site no bar. Link to any site you wish for the music-- YouTube, Megaupload (OH WAIT, IT DOESN'T EXIST /dead), Dailymotion, etc. etc.

5. Morality has no place in this degenerate bar. Anything goes. Any and all ship/kinks allowed; RPF, slash, gen, het, incest, Disney/Nick incest (which is a category on its own, trufax), THEY NEED THE LOVE. 

6. Please add all filled prompts to the thread that very originally says 'filled prompts' below. Try and follow the order as such: name-fandom-ship-rating-prompt.

7. If you know of an existing fic that seems to fit a prompt, feel free to rec it here to the prompter concerned.

8. If you so desire, pimp this on your journals, using the link below for the html code :D



More prompts = more music to listen to prompts to choose from = more writers interested = more fic . /this post requires mathematical expertise y'all.

you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
He loves too much and she’s loved too much and they make perfect lovers.

The first time is exactly what you think it’d be. Drunken recriminations and too much screaming and suddenly they’re standing one point three seven feet away and then there isn’t any space to pass air through and she drowns somewhere between his words and his mouth. She has Stefan in her eyes and her skin and her breaths and his brother inside her.

She fucks him and he makes love to her and that’s their tragedy in two acts.





The seventh time, it’s him in her room, and her clothes at his feet and he really needs to stop coming in like this.

He’s down on his knees in front of her and he has been since such a long, long time and she’s sorry, she really is. Sorry because he always loves the same kind of girl with the same kind of face and this girl with her face never seems to love him back. She’ll tell him to go for someone else, some nice girl somewhere who hasn’t broken his heart in seven ways since Sunday, but she’s too selfish for that. Always has been too selfish for that.

She’ll be heavy in his arms tonight and he’ll take it as a affirmation of something else, something more and she won’t correct him.





The twenty first time they’ve had another grand session of declarations of love that lasts forever (his) and silences (hers).

And when he looks like her that, she won’t tell him this. She’ll never say anything, won’t tell him that she doesn’t know, god Damon, it’s complicated. She’ll stay silent, let him imagine his name on her lips, leave Stefan out of her eyes, and keep Damon there because there’s this moment when she thinks he might leave her and there’s this moment in which she can’t breathe, and they are the same moment.

And was it worth the wait, she won’t ask, because then he might realize she never was.





By the sixty ninth time, she doesn’t need excuses.

She doesn’t need alcohol, she doesn’t need grief, she doesn’t need the reminder of his brother rejecting her again and again and again. Doesn’t need anything more than that second where his eyes darken and he turns away from her and doesn’t allow to see his eyes change. That instant where his teeth graze her lips and draw blood, but not quite, and she’s ridiculously proud because he’s always the one in control while his brother gets lost and she wants to do this to him.

And because he won’t leave her, he won’t ever leave her, Stefan, she says, oh god, Stefan.

He stays anyway.





(The hundredth and fifth time she makes love to him.)

Oh my GOD. What is this heartbreaking beauty? From the very first line this is GORGEOUS. How do you do these things.

She fucks him and he makes love to her and that’s their tragedy in two acts.

This is painful, and wonderful, and completely them.

She’ll be heavy in his arms tonight and he’ll take it as a affirmation of something else, something more and she won’t correct him.

God, I love this. I adore Elena's selfishness - she knows she isn't in this like he is, but she needs him, she needs this unconditional relentless love he gives her, and she can't bring herself to 'do the right thing' and let him go. I love all the subtle self-loathing you've put into this fic, that knowledge that she's not as good of a person as everyone thinks she is. But how she'll reap the benefits of that belief anyway, because she needs to be loved, even if she doesn't love herself (especially because she doesn't love herself).

That instant where his teeth graze her lips and draw blood, but not quite, and she’s ridiculously proud because he’s always the one in control while his brother gets lost and she wants to do this to him.

There's something really hot and really cruel about this. She loves the power she has over him, and it's so true to their relationship that it breaks my brain.

And because he won’t leave her, he won’t ever leave her, Stefan, she says, oh god, Stefan.

He stays anyway.


OUCH OUCH OUCH OUCH PERFECT.

(The hundredth and fifth time she makes love to him.)

This shut me down. YOU HAVE BROKEN ME. FLAWLESS.

So I just sort of copy/pasted the entire fic (and I had to restrain myself from copy/pasting the rest). This is stunning, my dear. Actually heartwrenching, and also tragically hopeful in a way. You are fantastic. ♥

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
THANK YOU! <3 How are you so gorgeous at everything DD: (And I'm like hahaha, they had sex like a minimum of hundred and five times /what even).

I adore Elena's selfishness - she knows she isn't in this like he is, but she needs him, she needs this unconditional relentless love he gives her, and she can't bring herself to 'do the right thing' and let him go.

I definitely think that this is something that needs to be explored more in canon; Elena's selfishness re: Damon. Earlier it was all very straightforward and she very clearly rejected him and left no room for interpretation (and Damon took it as a 'yes' anyway, lol, that boy). But now, it's a whole lot more hazy because she's silent mostly and "where were you, Damon" and all the looks and dependency and stuff. She's not giving him room for more, but she's definitely not letting him go. I think that's fascinated and I need more of this!

WHAT SHUUUUP, YOU ARE FANTASTIC. Mostly your comments turn out better than the actual fic. ;)

Every time I see that you've written D/E, I have to take several deep breaths and prepare myself for the onslaught of pain, and then I read what you've written and realise, I was not ready for this.

This time was no different.

She fucks him and he makes love to her and that’s their tragedy in two acts.

FUCK YOU.

She’ll tell him to go for someone else, some nice girl somewhere who hasn’t broken his heart in seven ways since Sunday, but she’s too selfish for that. Always has been too selfish for that.

okay, I swear, I always HATE when fic in this fandom makes Elena out to be "undeserving" of Damon, but THIS PARAGRAPH IS PERFECT. Because Elena would absolutely recognise the innate selfishness in her refusing to let Damon go, it would eat her up from the inside out, but she just. can't. stop.

She’ll be heavy in his arms tonight and he’ll take it as a affirmation of something else, something more and she won’t correct him.

This line destroyed my soul. JSYK.

She’ll stay silent, let him imagine his name on her lips, leave Stefan out of her eyes, and keep Damon there because there’s this moment when she thinks he might leave her and there’s this moment in which she can’t breathe, and they are the same moment.

MY JAW IS ON THE FLOOR.

He stays anyway.

Y E S. Forever obsessed with your Elena because she is my Elena, the girl who loved too much but failed everyone anyway and got ("deservedly") abandoned. And she fails to love Damon enough, and he fucking stays. This is the way they work.

In conclusion, this fic is stunning and I hate your guts.

CAN I PLEASE WRITE THIS DOWN IN MY CV BECAUSE IT TOTALLY COUNTS AS MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE.

I always HATE when fic in this fandom makes Elena out to be "undeserving" of Damon, but THIS PARAGRAPH IS PERFECT. Because Elena would absolutely recognise the innate selfishness in her refusing to let Damon go, it would eat her up from the inside out, but she just. can't. stop.

Ooh, I know what you mean, what is this fandom on most of the time :s (Same re: Klaus/Caroline. Like, I can understand not liking them, but saying that CAROLINE is not worthy of KLAUS. LOLOLOL, WHO ARE YOU?) I think in recent times this is pretty much canon, where Elena doesn't give Damon any more than he takes himself, and yet can't seem to let him go either. It's fascinating, really.

She is my Elena, the girl who loved too much but failed everyone anyway and got ("deservedly") abandoned. And she fails to love Damon enough, and he fucking stays.

AMEN TO THAT.

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
WHY did you do this? :(((((((

This whole thing with numbers is just beautiful, and I can't even explain why. Gives the whole thing rhytm perhaps. Or, I don't know, I just like it because of reasons.

She fucks him and he makes love to her and that’s their tragedy in two acts.

I can (with some pain) get over the fucking and making love. But the tragedy in TWO ACTS slayed me :(. How? Why? HOW?

That instant where his teeth graze her lips and draw blood, but not quite, and she’s ridiculously proud because he’s always the one in control while his brother gets lost and she wants to do this to him.

Just write them forever, ok? Because this is one of my favorite things, a person always in control feeling something that makes them lose control. You needed one sentence to capture something I've been thinking about for months. I hate you a little.

There will be no cute cat macro, because heartbreakers don't get cute cat macros, you heartbreaker :(.

THEY HAD SEX A MINIMUM OF A HUNDRED AND FIVE TIMES APPARENTLY. Lololol, I looked at those numbers again and went 'daaaayum'.

(I sometimes steal lines from my own fics and I think I've used this somewhere, but it's totally D/E so #no regrets)

Ohh, I like that too, I think Elena enjoys having that kind of control over Damon (especially because now she's so unsure of herself with Stefan) and Damon knows it and occasionally he cracks, but mostly he knows that's the way it's always going to be.

NO CUTE CAT MACRO? ALAS, I AM UNDONE.

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
It's not only the question of power over Damon, I think. If someone in control loses control because of you, it means they really want you. That you really count, you really get under their skin. People keep abandoning Elena, so if Damon really wants her SO MUCH, maybe he'll never abandon her?

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
Oh, definitely so! But I also like to think that she enjoys it; it's like Caroline hates Klaus, but you can tell that she's flattered by all the attention, which I think is extremely realistic. Similarly, I like to think that it's not only about the loss for Elena, but also about power, when she feels so powerless usually. It makes it more teenage and realistic for me somehow!

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
Oh, an ego boost factor is definitely there. Damon can pretty much have anyone he wants, and yet he's begging for Elena's attention, let alone other things. On a very shallow level, it must feel AMAZING ;).

What's more, Damon understands power play. He's not some naive boy who worships her not understanding the consequences. Damon knows how this kind of power affects Elena. He gives her the power because he knows she will relish in it, and he finds it hot. BECAUSE IT FUCKING IS HOT.

Now I have feelings :(.

Re: you'll never know what it means (but you'll know how it feels) | damon/elena | r | 1/1
DUDE, WE ALWAYS HAVE FEELINGS. HOW DO THESE TWO DO THIS TO US D:

And I completely agree; Damon definitely knows how this dynamic works, and he sometimes makes it overt, when Elena had been unconscious of its functioning, like that time when he went "Stop doing that" "stop doing what?" "Expecting me to do things because it's you who's asking". (...or something). THESE TWO COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER ALSO, because Elena likes to stay in denial and Damon is self-aware beyond all reason!!

Haha, believe me, LAST person to ever complain about anyone being late on commenting, I am the actual worst in that regard D: I honestly want to write some fun D/E now, but these kids always go ahead and write themselves all angsty and brooding and self-important and I can't even /sigh. You're much too nice, to be honest, it totally made my day :D
