Meme Power!

Ganked from classics_lover. Please distract me from this fic that is 13000 words long and STILL NOT DONE YET.

Everybody loves flowers! Everybody loves prompts! Now, love them even more with this A-to-Z flower (meaning) meme! Give me one flower, or toss in a bouquet’s worth into a comment, and a character/pairing and I’ll write a thing!

Azalea- fragile and ephemeral passion
Buttercup- ingratitude
Camellia- my destiny is in your hands
Daylily- coquetry
Elder- compassion
Forsythia- anticipation
Gladiolus- you pierce my heart
Holly- foresight
Impatiens- impatience
Jonquil- desire
Kingcup- youth, innocence, dawn
Lily- majesty
Marigold- grief
Nettle- cruelty
Oats- the witching soul of music
Persimmon- bury me amid nature’s beauty
Quince- temptation
Raspberry- remorse
Sweet pea- delicate pleasures
Thistle- misanthropy
Ulmus- royalty, strength, age
Verbena- pray for me
Witch hazel- a spell
Xeranthemum- eternity, immortality
Yarrow- cure for a broken heart
Zinnia- I mourn your absence

Hmm, so do we pick a flower (lol, sorry) and you write whatever you feel like, or do we give you characters/pairing + flower? It looks like the former, but which would you prefer?

Ah, I should've probably spotted that! Sorry, the huge fic is rather eating my brain atm. I'd prefer specific characters/pairings to be mentipned, and shall edit it accordingly! :D

Fill: Sweet Temptation [Doctor Who, sort of Brig/Liz]
“I’m not sure I should.”

“Oh come on, Brigadier, what’s the worst that could happen?”

“Many things, Miss Shaw, but what if the Doctor comes in before I finish?”

“Oh, I’m sure he won’t mind.”

“With all due respect you haven’t known him for as long as I have, Miss Shaw. He can be very unpredictable about this sort of thing…”

“Brigadier…”

“And can get very huffy if you don’t invite him.”

“Brigadier, you have faced down more aliens than any other man I know! You’ve never been cowed by the Doctor before, why start now over something so insignificant?”

“…Miss Shaw, have I ever told you that you are frequently capable of speaking great amounts of sense?”

“You’ll do it, then?”

“Yes. Yes, I rather think I shall. Damn the Doctor! If he wanted to protest over something so natural, he should’ve got here a little sooner.”

And, with that said, the Brigadier firmly leant forward and took the very last biscuit in the pack.

Fill: A Fool to Love [The Odyssey - Homer, Penny/Ody]
She knows it’s foolish – that Odysseus is probably dead across the sea, just as everybody says – but that changes nothing. Day after day she waits for him. Day after day the suitors crowd her, her young son grows taller, the maids start to whisper that she’s lost his mind and she still waits for him. And, yes, she’s scared and she’s sad and she knows that any normal person would’ve given up long ago-

But.

But.

She gets a sick feeling deep in the pit of her stomach every time she thinks of stopping, of giving up, of turning her head away from the horizon and just accepting how unfair the world can be. And so she waits for him, no matter how foolish it may be.

And on the subject of that fic... At current estimate it should probably end at about 17k. There are no promises there, though. ^^

Fill: Hourglass [Justice League Cartoon, Clark/J'onn]
Kryptonians, as it turns out, age almost as slowly as Martians. Fifty years on from the day they first met Clark still looks much the same as he did then - A few more grey hairs and a slowly spreading map of wrinkles, yes, but still nowhere close to the stooped eighty year old that he should be.

“Do you ever get used to it?” Clark asks one day, as they perch just over the holographic projection of the globe and stare out over the steadily more modern city, “watching the world change? Leaving everybody behind?”

Bruce is cloistered angrily away in Gotham, Shayera and John are happily wrinkled and getting more deaf by the day, Wally retired long ago to marry a nice reporter named Linda and live a generally quiet life. More often than not it’s just the two of them now, graced by the white haired Diana’s increasingly rare visits from Themyscira.

“No,” he says, after considering for a second, but manages a slow smile in the face of the setting sun, “it is a lot easier to face when you have company, however.”

A long pause, as the world fades into night around them. And then Clark, slowly, starts to smile in return.

Fill: The Best [The Flash (TV), Axel/Barry (+ Lisa/Barry + Mark/Barry + Len/Barry]
“It’s just a crush,” Lisa huffs, cleaning her gun in a rather pointed manner as she smiles at him, “a silly little thing, that it’s fun to think about but not worth obsessing over. Now, please, stop mooning after him or my finger may just accidentally slip on the trigger and put you in a hospital.”

“He’s the Flash,” Mark huffs, sending him a glare that he’d honestly be terrified by if he hadn’t seen the man drunkenly drooling on a table just a few nights back, “our worst enemy, the permanent thorn in our side, an irritatingly red blur at best. Keep talking about him like that, and I will strike you with lightening.”

“Even consider laying a finger on him,” Len drawls, calmly dragging him away by the arm after a robbery, “and I will make sure that you never walk, drink or breathe again. And believe me, Trickster, that is a promise.”

But he doesn’t care, he doesn’t listen. He looks at the Flash, blurring and red and so very earnest, and he knows that it’s love. The forever and always kind.

Fill: Destiny [The Flash (TV), S1!Wells/Barry]
He’s grown used to holding the direction of Barry Allen’s life in his hands. He’s owned the man since the night he killed his mother, and almost twenty years later he’s grown fully comfortable with the knowledge that he could very easily snap his fingers and change everything just like that.

In true love with Iris West? Nope.

Member of the Justice League? Nowhere close.

All powerful, life ruining foe? Of course not.

…Or so he thinks. Until one night, one perfectly ordinary night, when Barry lifts his head from his pillow and sends him a drowsy smile. And suddenly, quite suddenly, he has to face the knowledge that he could ruin everything good about Barry Allen’s life but that he doesn’t want to.

And suddenly, quite suddenly, has to face the knowledge that Barry has just as much power over him.

Fill: Sweat Drips [Green Lantern, Hal/Sinestro]
Sinestro...”

“Jordan.”

Please...”

No.”

God,” he says on a sob, and slumps down the wall – right into Sinestro’s body, the warm muscle pinning him, “we’ve been here for hours, Sin, actual fucking hours.”

“I am well aware of that, Jor,” Sinestro smiles with sharp teeth, gives a long and rippling thrust that sends him gasping. The man is covered with sweat, to the point where his hair has gone even darker than it already was, his eyes are black and yet his voice still doesn’t shake, “are you complaining?”

“Not- Not exact-“ his mind fuzzes white as Sinestro hits that certain spot inside, and when he comes back to himself he finds that he’s trembling and gaping and still so hard that it actually fucking hurts like a fist in the gut, “holy fucking god, can I please just come already? Just once? Just to – ah! – take the motherfucking edge off.”

“Hm,” Sinestro purrs, and only smiles again with his set of ever so sharp teeth, “you will come when I allow you to, Jordan, and no sooner.”

Fill: And Leap [Superman: TAS, Clark/Lex]
“Superman,” he hisses into his phone, and ducks as part of his desk is blown away right beside his head, “Clark, in case you haven’t noticed the men with guns are getting rather close to my position. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.”

“Lex, don’t use my name in public,” Clark scolds, but sounds faintly concerned underneath. How sweet, his alien boyfriend does care, “I can’t get up there quickly enough.”

“Well,” he snarls, and tries to avoid his voice shaking too much. It’s just adrenaline, nothing more, he’ll look back on this period later – holding a glass of wine and hopefully getting an apologetic foot massage from Clark - and laugh, “that’s helpful.”

“…Lex, do you trust me?”

And he pauses for a second. Allows the adrenaline to shake through him, hears the steps of the gunmen getting closer and closer and…

He’s faced death often enough, but this time he finds that he doesn’t really want to face it without admitting the truth. He sighs, tilts his head back against the wood and curses the sentimental streak that Clark has been encouraging within him, “what’s the plan?”

“Jump out of the window.”

What?”

“I know it sounds crazy, Lex, but it’s the only way. Jump out of the window and I’ll catch you, I promise.”

And it does sound crazy. And insane, and deeply hazardous to his health…

And that sentimental streak that Clark has encouraged within him is still there, waiting with warm hope. He hesitates for only a second more, and then sighs and starts crawling towards the nearest window.

Re: Fill: And Leap [Superman: TAS, Clark/Lex]

Brilliant use of the prompt - thank you
