prompt table and fic meme and stuff.  


I have some time before the next onslaught of exams and I found this lovely thing, so :D Although fair warning, I am terrible at filling prompts, but I hope to write at least a short drabble-ish thing for anyone who bothers to ask, although I'm perfectly capable of just looking at the prompts starry-eyed and wishing someone else would write it, so I could read it.

As for the table, omg, it's too tough and there is NO WAY I'm filling all of it, I'm not that advanced. I shall try and fit the prompts within a category though. Therefore ignore the table if you wish, it's here for the pretty and for everyone to go 'omg, isn't THAT interesting'. Prompt in general as much as you want; I would prefer them to be separate comments for ease of filling them, but that's neither here nor there. I shall try to fill at least one per person!

List.

the lonesome all understand | the vampire diaries | damon/elena | he's always been the one to not save her.

for the night is dark | the vampire diaries | katherine | there is only one thing to know about Katherine Pierce.

turning saints into the sea | community | jeff/annie | it's like who he could have been never left the building.

you said the schrodinger equation collapsed perfectly | heh | cranmers/chemistry | of test tube babies and fate.

where the winds hit heavy on the borderline | the vampire diaries | elena, bonnie, caroline | post 3.22 | friends, lovers, or nothing, we'll never be the inbetween.

before you trade in your summer skin | lost | jack/claire | maybe it's something their father left them.

still the sea is salt | game of thrones | jon/daenerys | she thinks it's fitting to meet by the sea when the world is about to end.

stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | the vampire diaries | elena | at the end she begins again.

and the bible didn't mention us | the vampire diaries | stefan/caroline/tyler | she loves most those long days of summer.

the five stages of | lost | boone/shannon | “You’re dead,” she informs him, because maybe he’s forgotten. Which would be so like him.

all we know is falling | game of thrones | gendry/arya | he has never had a sister and sometimes he thinks this is what it would be like.

the map is not the territory | the vampire diaries | damon (/elena; caroline-bonnie-rebekah) | Damon Salvatore, ladies and gentlemen.

you could be my original sin | the vampire diaries| klaus/caroline | this is not the story you think you know.

as the moon was rising in your eyes | harry potter | harry/luna | it is such a terrible affliction to not be able to dream, you know.

then you come crashing in | life with derek | derek/casey | something soft, haunting. something that would say we can't and can't we all at once.

stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | push | nick/cassie | the second time she gets drunk, they've just caught up with Kira in London.

I want Damon/Elena, the Princess and her Huntsman. You can fit it under The Hunter, can't you?

Hee, the table's totally just here for the pretty mostly, because there is no way I'll be able to do it; it's fabulous and fabulously hard also. So thank you for the general prompt!:D

LOL You tempt me too much. I shall not think about it too much or I'll have 10 000 things I want swarming through my head.

Ripper!Stefan/Caroline - 001. The fox as shepherd. (Although 008. and 046 are pretty tempting too :P)

I think I'm gonna keep that table though. I hope I'll get some writing done a few weeks from now when I'm not this stressed anymore.

Edit: I completely forgot to add Caroline lol XD I've been studying for hours today and I think my brain has finally turned to mush.

LOL, I was TOTALLY going to write you Stefan/Caroline anyway. I legit looked at the prompt and thought 'hmm, that's interesting, ripper!Stefan and no Caroline; BUT I WILL WRITE HER IN SOMEHOW ANYWAY.'

PLEASE TAKE THE TABLE. GLORIOUS FIC TO BE WRITTEN ONCE YOU GET FREE.

Creature Of Hobbit: elena gilberttellshannon815 on June 10th, 2012 05:39 pm (UTC)
#3 is sort of screaming Elena and her reaction to the end of S3 - maybe something where she confronts Meredith?
youcallitwinter: till the end of the worldyoucallitwinter on June 12th, 2012 01:14 pm (UTC)
stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1

At the end, she begins again.

This is not what I wanted, she thinks.

Outside the window, they stare at her.

x

She almost dies and she almost dies and she almost dies and then she dies and then she lives. Her life, it’s a book in reverse.

This time though, she will live till she dies. And if she doesn’t die, she will live forever. She wants to live.

So she drinks. Caroline stands by, the Salvatores at a distance and she can tell they expect her to stop and throw the blood away. Refuse to be the monsters they think they are.

They knew the Elena Gilbert who still lies at the bottom of the water, floating, floating.

They do not know her.

So she drinks.

This is not what I wanted.

x

The first time she kills, she goes to Stefan.

She thinks she will prove the point, even though she doesn’t know what it is.

He’s silent as she stands in front of him, “you wouldn’t want to be Katherine, Elena. Don’t do this to yourself.”

She laughs then, delightfully, bright, “that’s the problem Stefan. You seem to think there’s an either/or.”

She’s both. She is Katherine, she is Isobel. She is even that first woman with the face like hers that two boys much like her boys fell in love with.

She is the Elena that was. She is the Elena that is.

“There isn’t,” she completes, licking every last drop of the saving blood from her lips.

The blood saved her when no one else could.

This is not what I wanted.

x

The first time she kills and loves it, she goes to Damon.

He laughs, but his eyes are hard, he doesn’t know this girl. She thinks he’s thrown off his game because this is the girl he loves and this is not the girl he loves, so he doesn’t know how to feel.

Damon always feels too much.

“You’re adjusting well,” he says wryly, moving to the counter to drown the confusion in alcohol. This is what he does.

She thinks of the girl who had looked a lot like Jenna. The blood was brilliant against the porcelain skin of her throat.

“Yeah,” she says, because she’s still an eighteen year old girl, “I am.”

She will always be an eighteen year old girl, always be all of those girls, a mixture of Petrova blood and Jeremy’s blood and the blood that Meredith gave her. The blood that she offered Stefan, the blood that Damon stole.

This is not what I wanted.

x

The first time she kills and hates herself for it, she goes to Jeremy.

His hand soothes down her hair, and she cries and she cries and it’s not fair because she was supposed to be the strong one, the older sister.

“It’s okay,” he says, “you’re alive. It’s the only thing that matters.”

“You should hate me,” she whispers, because he shouldn’t have to see her like this.

This is not what I wanted.

“I love you,” he says simply.

He is as selfish as she is, they are family.

x

She lives on blood, but everyone lives on blood. Their heart pumps it constantly; it is what keeps them alive.

Her heart doesn’t beat, doesn’t pump, so it’s only fair that she gets blood from elsewhere to make up for it.

All she wants to do is live for once.

That doesn’t make her a monster. It makes her human.

This is what I wanted.

OMG PRETTY TABLE IS PRETTY AND AWESOME
As I am sick of TVD, I am going to spam you with a multitude of awful and obscure prompts.

001. The fox as shepherd: Severus Snape - 'nuff said.

002. Curing the sick lion: Tywin teaching dyslexic!Jaime to read - this is something that needs to be written, obviously.

007. Blood brothers: XMFC! Have you seen XMFC? Because you should. It's all like 'We're brothers you and I; we want the same thing!' and then it goes 'Hahaha... no' and you're like 'BUT YOU TWO COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLLLL!!!' and you're sad but then ENTER PATRICK STEWART AND IAN MCKELLEN. BAM. It's the best, I tell you! DAS BEST.

037. The blood that testified to the truth: Loki has an existential crisis when he realises he is in fact, a snowflake and not an Odinflake as he'd previously thought.

046. The man who competes with the devil: I will not prompt Caroline/Klaus. I will not...

085. 'Who gives his own goods shall receive it back tenfold': A rewrite of the scene where Aslan dies in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in which it is more obvious that he's not permanently dead. It ruined my childhood, that scene...

094. Good luck: A Fic about me and my Unrevised for Chem exam.

TROLOL.

I haven't ever tried GOT but I could definitely try! (Although I've just seen the show, so it can only belong to that canon xD)

we are over as the loving kind.

There’s a moment when it cracks. When Bonnie feels every single molecule composing her burn with the kind of rage that sends sparks shooting down her wrists. Because that’s all her magic comes to. He best friend lying on a table in a room that smells of disinfectant and emptiness.

Goddamn you, she thinks, you don’t get to die. Not after everything we’ve gone through to keep you alive. Not after Grams. Not after Abby. You selfish bitch, you don’t get to die.

She betrayed Caroline and she failed Elena in a single night. Ladies and gentlemen, Bonnie Bennett, best friend extraordinaire.

She doesn’t cry. Not when Caroline wraps her arms tighter around the boy she thinks is Tyler, because she’s shivering and she can’t seem to get warm. Not when the Salvatores break down, bit by bit, right in front of her eyes. Not when Jeremy stares blankly ahead, his eyes fixed at a point on the wall above his sister’s head, stone still.

She thinks of the bright girl with the sort of smile that charmed the students in seventh grade and made them vie for a seat next to her in class. Queen Elena, Caroline would say scornfully sometimes, Queen Elena holding court. Ain’t that a grand sight. But everyone knew that Caroline desperately wanted to be friends with her, so her words didn’t count for as much as that hidden note of wistfulness in her voice did. But Elena wasn’t best friends with golden-headed Caroline. She wasn’t best friends with exotic looking Dana. She was best friends with her, with Bonnie. She was only Bonnie’s best friend.

You are magical, Elena wrote at the end of her birthday card each year, without fail, in fancy loopy writing that always tilted slightly downwards on the blank page, you are magical and we’ll be best friends forever.

Apparently forever had come and gone without Bonnie noticing.

Liar, she thinks, and walks out, you goddamned lying—

She doesn’t cry.

“Why won’t Bonnie speak to me?” Elena asks, her eyes childishly wide, her hands clasped in front of her. And for a moment Caroline remembers that girl from seventh grade. Queen Elena. The one whom she’d been convinced was faking it all. The girl whom she loved and hated in equal measure.

“She feels like it’s her fault,” Caroline says, and wonders when she came to know these two girls well enough to know that. Or maybe she had always known that Elena never wore green on Tuesdays and that Bonnie hated strawberry smoothies because she had always been watching, even when they never looked back.

“It’s nobody’s fault,” Elena shrugs, “it’s not even that big a deal in this town. They should probably add in a separate section in the census for the supernatural population of Mystic Falls.”

Her mouth is caked with blood that smells warm and human and all those things that Stefan taught her to fight against, and sometimes, she doesn’t want to. All she wants to do is lick that last drop off Elena’s lips.

071. Carrying part of the load. - Harry/Hermione
