music: neko case ~ the next time you say "forever"

Drabble meme, via [personal profile] lyras...

Comment in this post and I will write a drabble for any pairing/character of your choosing. I'll take up to ten requests.

Fandoms include (but are not necessarily limited to): Harry Potter, Leverage, Warehouse 13, Stargate, Star Wars (Original Trilogy and (some of) the EU), Fringe, X-Files, Chuck, Castle, various old time-y mysteries (Christie, Sayers, etc.) and anything I've written for here or here is pretty much fair game. Really just throw anything at me and I'll tell whether I know it well enough to comment -- because who knows with me these days (i.e., I would totally write, like, General Hospital fic -- or something equally randomly awesome -- if asked).



1. Michael Davies, Blackout/All Clear for lyras
2. Viscount St. George/Harriet, Sayers for anonymous
3. I Won't Dance, Don't Ask Me, Albus/June, Harry Potter/Dreamwalk Blue for anonymous
4. Bridesmaids, Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter for catewigs
5. Gravity, Jimmy/Yves, The Lone Gunmen for ticketsonmyself
6. We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance, Parker/Hardison, Leverage for ticketsonmyself

How about both? :) I had ten slots open and they haven't all been filled.

Glad you like the LGM fic! I actually think I have a couple more Jimmy/Yves pieces, apart from the longer fic, in the archives here, if you're interested.

Yes!! Thank you! :D I didn't realize I could get more than one request in. If I ask for more, will they qualify, too? ;)

Oh, oh that is excellent news. Thank you! (And is Hannah the daughter of Byers and Susanne??)

There are four more slots open. Go nuts! ;)

Re: Hannah -- I'm not even sure whether explaining her backstory would make sense at this point. There's a whole lot that has to happen before we get to her and it might just be confusing. I will share this: Susanne isn't her mom, but Byers is her dad. :)

Oh thank you! That is so cool. That's an intriguing community, too. Do they do that just once a year? I took an extended vacation from fandom for a couple years, so am just rediscovering a lot stuff -- and this is right up my alley!

Gravity (Jimmy/Yves)

“You know, most people save their yearly benders for St. Paddy's Day.”

“I'm only a couple weeks off...” Jimmy set his shot glass down on the bar next to a half-empty pint of beer. He pointed at the glass. “What do you say, Sam?”

“I say you've had plenty,” Sam replied and whisked the shot glass back behind the bar with a practiced hand. He picked up the phone and dialed a number from memory. “Hey, come get your boyfriend.”

“What did she say?” Jimmy asked once Sam had hung up.

“That she's not your girlfriend...” He paused. “But that she'll be here in ten minutes.”

Even drunk as he was, he noticed when she walked in. He couldn't not. He was tuned to everything about her: her perfume, the way she walked, the way – today of all days – she was looking at him with something worryingly close to pity in her eyes.

“Six years today,” he said, a little unsteady on his stool. She didn't reply, just handed Sam a folded twenty, a look passing between them that Jimmy couldn't quite read. He reached out and grabbed her by the arm, demanding her attention. “Six years.”

“I know, Jimmy,” she said, her voice softer than usual.

“How can it have been that long? It doesn't feel like it's been that long.”

“They've been gone a long time. Why do you do this to yourself?” She helped him off the bar stool, slinging his arm around her shoulders.

“Why do you come and get me?”

“You already know the answer to that,” she said, managing him through the door and out to her car.

“Then so do you.” He let her put him in the passenger seat. “We can't let go, can we?”

He caught her as she backed away, one hand heavy on the back of her neck, fingers tangled in her long hair. He pulled her in close and kissed her firmly on the mouth before letting go.

“You're right, Jimmy,” she said, reaching over and fastening his seat belt. “I guess we can't.”

Perfect!

I like that you indicate there is a "usual" for them.

So in character (and, yes, so sad).

This (and the Parker/Hardison stuff) totally reminded me that I used to have a dancing icon that was Jimmy/Yves. I'll have to try and dig it up. :) Thank you!

Oh, my heart. This is so plausible for the way they deal with their grief. I love what your title says about their situation.

Thanks! So glad you enjoyed this. I've played with incorporating this into a longer fic at some point. We'll see if I get around to it. :)

"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance." (Parker/Hardison)

Dancing is, like, a thing with them.

It makes sense, Hardison figures, because of the way Parker dances through life, through theft, through the air connected suspended by nothing but thin thread.

The first time he watches her steal something it's like watching her dance to music he can't quite hear. The first time he thinks maybe he really has a chance with her, there's dancing. The first time they kiss, like a for-real kiss, there's dancing.

So dancing is a thing. Then again, narrowly escaping from life threatening situations is a thing with them, so who knows. Still, he finds, he really doesn't mind the dance.

Parker and Hardison, dancing inna... tree? ANYWAY. I love this! I love love love it - the dancing, how Hardison feels about Parker's grace and that she's worth the wait, even with the perpetual risk-taking that makes up their lives. Have a little Parker/Hardison picspam!

So glad you liked it! And thanks for the pics. I really do love the way they've developed that relationship on the show -- it just makes me smile!
