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!

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.

At the end, she begins again.

This is not what I wanted, she thinks.

Outside the window, they stare at her.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Your Elena is spectacular, truly. Of course she goes to Stefan when she first kills, to Damon when she first likes it, and to her brother when she hates herself. Your Elena is such a tragic mixture of life and death, a human and a monster, I have no words.

Re: stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1


But I would love to see how vampire!Elena relates to everyone around her; for one, I really hope it brings my girls together, because there has been way too much emphasis on the Salvatores in S3 and the heavy-handed treatment of WHO WILL SHE CHOOOOOSE just did not appeal to me. So S4 better move away, or at least have epic scenes with both Salvatores without the annoying 'who does she REALLY love' thing. There are just so many possibilities, GUH.

Re: stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1
HOW COULD I NOT BE NICE? youcallitwinter!Elena is one of my most favorite Elenas. (Goes somewhere on the top of the list, along with ponytail!Elena).

So yes, definitely interested in seeing OT3 moments, but seriously, show, give us Elena/Bonnie/Caroline scenes. I will never stop loving them. The groups hugs and sleepovers and everything, show, GIVE ME ALL OF IT, I can take it.

Also, while they have their epic scenes, if they could spend them not talking about the Salvatores, that might also be fun for a change :D

Re: stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1


I want to see the girls having the best conversations, and if they HAVE TO BE about the Salvatores then let them at least be about Damon the Vampire Gigolo, heh. They really haven't interacted much, and I want them to. The guy!stuff is interesting, but I need them to be giggly teenage girls sometimes, just saying.

Re: stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1
YES YES. Like "that dark blue shirt looks good on him" and "I heard him yesterday with Rebekah, boy were they getting it on" while Elena tries to pretend it's all alright, because, she hearts Stefan, remember and they should eat ice cream and watch Buffy a lot and spend their time discussing how Damon's hair was a lot nicer when they first met him :D


(but what I probably meant with that sentence was: <3)

Nobody calls me cute. Though sometimes people call me argumentative.

Keep on saying it and I will start believing it... which I guess would be terrible haha!

Re: stay a while, and maybe then you'll see | elena | 1/1
I AM AFRAID THAT IF I STOP WRITING, I'LL...STOP WRITING. I am horrifically lazy that way.


And believe me, once you've been 'cute' all your life and people pull your cheeks and lift you up, when you're twenty, and treat you as a universal younger sister, then it is very much NOT FUN. My parents call me argumentative all the time, lol, they think I never listen to them and just shoot off first.
