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!

fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1

“I am trying,she snaps, because there’s this one line that he crosses twenty strikes back and she kind of hates him. And kind of loves him. But only when it’s dark at night and she can’t see his face and tell his face. Maybe not even then.

“I’d hate to see you not try then” he says, holding one arm over her body. And snap. It’s just that easy to restrain her because she’s still not strong enough. She’s a monster and she’s still not freaking strong enough.

“Not like you aren’t getting off on being able to touch me like this, full license and a ready-made excuse at hand,” she snaps, because she’s a bitch, ask her how.

He stops then for a moment, looks up at her and she can see better now. She can see every single molecule of want and lust and hatred and love and annoyance and frustration coloring every single fleck in his eyes, and it’s the oddest sensation. Like poetry that someone’s magically filled with life so it’s not so poetic anymore, mostly just harsh and out-of-place and even that makes more sense than her being pinned to a tree in a random forest by the brother who is always ‘the brother’ to her.

“You want to have that conversation?” he asks, "because we can have that conversation. And then you can't un-have that conversation."

Yes.

She thinks she could watch him fight ever day. Like he's the hunter and nobody can touch him or hurt him because he makes the rules. Strange, that. Because she's never needed anything more than words. Which just proves she's always been a terrible person.

“Shut up,” she says instead, because she has a full license to let him touch her and a ready-made excuse at hand.

He backs away, hands out, “whatever. You were the one who wanted to have this ‘big damn hero’ session, okay. Don’t blame me if you can’t handle being touched by me long enough to learn to fight it off.”

The thing is, she doesn’t want to need to be saved. Not anymore. Never again. And he’s the best person for this job because he’s always been the one to not save her.

“So you’re going to leave. Just like that?” her fake laugh is almost real, because hello, this is her forte, “trust you to do that Damon.”

I will never leave you.

He turns around, hands in pocket and he can fake nonchalance all he wants, but she can see better these days, “is there something you want, Elena? I’m the new-and-improved 1864 model and I come fully equipped with a lot of great additional features, but mind-reading isn’t one of them.”

Sometimes she’s sorry. Most times she wants to do it all over again because that’s all she can do when it’s him.

She’s obviously been quiet long enough, because he’s turning back again, ‘guess that’s my cue, princess. See you on the other side of not knowing how to fight.”

He walks away and if there’s anything that she hates it’s seeing him walking away. She’s the one who walks away. It’s tradition.

“Damon.”

He turns, because she knew he would. He always does.

“Wha—”

She tackles him then, shoving him to the ground, every ounce of her body geared at hurting him as much as she isn’t hurting. And it’s not fair and it doesn’t prove anything because he’s off guard, but there’s a clenching in her gut every time he’s close and what part of this is fair anyway?

She stands miles apart and three feet close and looks down at him and thinks something like ‘sorry’. Or maybe not. ‘That’s warrior princess to you.”

And walks away.

Re: fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1
MAYBE I SHOULD SET A 15 MINUTE CAP FOR WRITING ALL FIC ON THIS POST? Because otherwise I won't write anything. I am a terrible, terrible procrastinator!

ETA: omg, thank you of course. I sometimes want to write cheesy lines and then try to make them slightly different so I don't cringe every time I read it again, heh.

Oh dude, it's still cheesy. Magnificently so, but cheesy nevertheless!

I KNOW D: Sometimes I just want to pretend I'm not a cynical bitch and write glorious purple prose and epic love stories. Shhhhh.

(this isn't even metaphysics - I know - just... physics?)

DUDE THAT WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU ARE CYNICAL ON THE OUTSIDE AND CHEESY ON THE INSIDE.

LIKE A SUPERVILLAIN WHO JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED!!!!!!!! :P :P :P









I don't know where this is from but Joseph Morgan can clearly only play one character: loser desperate to be loved.







BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

It's a good thing I amuse myself you know! People don't find me funny for some unknown reason... :)

UGH YOU!

He doesn't walk away. So she does everything to make it so that it's HER who walks away. He's strong, but he isn't. And he's always been the one not to save her. I hate it that it takes you less than an hour to pull off something like that :(. CAN I HAVE YOUR BRAIN?

Oh this is gorgeous. He never saves her, and she doesn't want him to, and it's all so beautiful how stubborn and deflecting those two crazy kids are with each other.

Re: fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1
Aww, thank you! But I really do think that's the best thing about them-- how Damon is always late to every mission that involves saving her and tries so hard and can never pull it off. And of course she doesn't want to be saved, so they somehow work!

Re: fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1
Yeees, they're gorgeous. He tries so hard to pull the whole hero saving the girl act, but always fails, like when Kol almost kills him in 3x19 at the end of the episode, but he still does it every single time. But we love them because of all the epic failure that they are at times, of course <3

youcallitwinter: all over the world tonightyoucallitwinter on June 10th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
Re: fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1
Yeah, and that time when he comes to pick her from the hospital after the whole ordeal is over. It's odd how much I love all this about them. And she somehow manages to save him quite a lot; like in Bloodlines. *hearts*

Re: fic: the lonesome all understand | damon/elena | 1/1
Oh my god, those ending scenes from 3x06 (I think it was that episode). That was probably one of the most heartbreaking failed saving attempts for them, of course, along with the season 2 ending, when he doesn't save her, but she lives, and then she tries to, but can't save him, but he still lives anyway, and if it was up to just the two of them, they probably wouldn't have made it past season 1 :D Though she did pull quite a high quality warrior princess stunt back in both the season 1 and season 2 finale in order to save him. The girl sure tries to save her boy, it's a thing of beauty, really is.

But now I'm just babbling, D/E will be the end of my sanity, I am sure :D

Ooh, I love your icon! LOL, I remember the time when the promos came out and in this clip, I was sure they were holding hands and I was all 'omg' xD

Oh, all those scenes are lovely! And they're the craziest of the lot because they do all these grand, martyrish things and usually end up putting everyone in danger through their actions and contingency plans have to be formed against their contingency plans, haha. But, a thing of beauty none the less.

FEEL FREE TO BABBLE. It is my default mode /nods

She’s a monster and she’s still not freaking strong enough.

Already in love with this fic.

Like poetry that someone’s magically filled with life so it’s not so poetic anymore, mostly just harsh and out-of-place

How do you even use words. I don't understand. Gorgeous.

“Shut up,” she says instead, because she has a full license to let him touch her and a ready-made excuse at hand.

Perfect perfect perfect, with the contrast and everything. You, just.

The thing is, she doesn’t want to need to be saved. Not anymore. Never again. And he’s the best person for this job because he’s always been the one to not save her.

YESYESYES THIS. Why I will ship them to my death.

Sometimes she’s sorry. Most times she wants to do it all over again because that’s all she can do when it’s him.

Reference: shipping them to my death. Also reference: you are amazing, how do you even.

He walks away and if there’s anything that she hates it’s seeing him walking away. She’s the one who walks away. It’s tradition.

Flawless D/E is flawless.

GOOD. This fic is a wonder. As usual.

But what are your comments even; I think I will turn into one of those people who write solely to have someone comment, and that someone will be you.

BUT SERIOUSLY THOUGH, I AM GLAD YOU LIKE? I'm suddenly writing all the post S3 fic, which is weird cuz I'm not doing it consciously; it's just all turning out to be post S3 lol.

The sheer brilliance of your comments always breaks my heart.

I AM GLAD, I do not know if you're just being nice to me, but I never hear voices and stuff in my head when I read, but I'd love to because it would make everything realer, and I'm so glad you can :D

UGHHHHH WHAT IS THIS WHAT IS THIS WHAT IS THIS

And kind of loves him. But only when it’s dark at night and she can’t see his face and tell his face. Maybe not even then.

FLAW-FREE FROM LINE ONE, M'FER. Only in the dark (!!!!!)

she snaps, because she’s a bitch, ask her how.

♥♥♥

mostly just harsh and out-of-place and even that makes more sense than her being pinned to a tree in a random forest by the brother who is always ‘the brother’ to her.

DEAD. OH, ELENA. LMFAO.

“You want to have that conversation?” he asks, "because we can have that conversation. And then you can't un-have that conversation."

My morally dubious princess and her hapless huntsman.

Bless this line.

But omg, it would make no sense if Damon was allowed to 'train' Elena by Bonnie or Caroline or anyone as such, but I can see them sneaking off to fight because that would be epic and very twelve.
