Title: In a Corner of My Soul; scene: Research
Fandom: BtVS
Prompt: 475 - Titanic
Rating: PG

Word Count: 620
Note: Locked to Taming Mods
Title: When You Have Neither
Fandom: BtVS
Prompt: 475 - Titanic
Rating: PG
Summary: Another chapter for Shanshu

Word Count: 2470
Note on scene title: When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler. - Al Gore

Millay didn"t argue when Xander and Dawn had commandeered one of the vans so they could return to LA immediately. Anything that got her to Will sooner was okay in her book. The Slayers were staying to close the Hell-thingy, assuming there even was a Hell-thingy, but Millay had seen the creatures that had climbed out of the crater. Those monsters would put even Nosferatu to shame. She"d also seen them turn to dust when killed. If Hell-thingys did exist, then the more people making sure they were properly closed the better, but Xander said the Slayers had it covered and that was good enough. Millay might not believe in Hell-thingys and vampires, but she did believe in Will, who might or might not be in LA. If he was, she wanted to be there with him.Collapse )

Title: untitled [excerpt]
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Prompt: 474 - cheerful
Warnings: Definite spoilers up through and including 5x09 Lies of Omission. Speculated MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH. Vague Derek/Stiles pre-slash.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~570
Summary: Scott bites his lip against a choking sound and shudders out a breath. “A lot’s happened since you left.”

Just scenting Scott’s emotions, Derek feels like that’s maybe the biggest understatement of the year. “I’m getting that. Why don’t you start at the beginning?”

Disclaimer: It’s all lies and I own nothing.
A/N: I came up with the main idea for this back during 3A with the alpha pack, but I couldn’t flesh out certain details. This season’s story arc fit a lot better with the story I wanted to tell. For now, this is all there is because I just wanted to get some of it written before the 5A finale. There’s no way the show’s going to go in the same direction my fic is, but I just wanted to get it out there.
