A Multifandom Friendship Commentfic Fest
In Finland, February 14th is known as ystävänpäivä, 'Friendship Day', and what better way to celebrate it than:

A Multifandom Friendship Commentfic Fest

EDIT Feb 16th (And yes, the meme is still open - for as long as people leave prompts and fill them!)

The rules:

- One prompt per comment, but you can leave as many promps/comments as you like.

- Prompts and fills must focus on friendships between characters. Mentions of romantic (and familial) relationships are allowed, as long as its not the focus of the story/prompt. For example, "Buffy and Willow talk about boys over ice cream" is an OK prompt, as long as the focus is on the friendship between Willow and Buffy and not their relationships with their respective boyfriends. Same goes with ex-lovers and friends-to-lovers scenarios such as Mulder and Scully - just leave off the UST and focus on their friendship, and you're OK.

- All fandoms (including RPF) no matter how big or small are allowed.

- More than one person can fill the same prompt.

- There is no minimum or maximum wordcount for the fills.

- Anon prompts and fills are allowed.

- No bashing of ships or characters.

Please pimp this far and wide :)


(I didn't have time to make fandom specific graphics to pimp the fest, so feel free to make your own - and if you do, let me know and I'll add them here)

(There are still other Crusade fans! My joy is boundless.)

When Dureena walked in to the mess for the weekly poker game, the party was in full swing and everyone around the table was having a good time--everyone except Galen. He sat scowling at his cards, face like a thundercloud. For someone who was usually so inscrutable, he had a terrible poker face.

"Glaring at the cards won't make your hand any better, you know," she murmured to him, stealing a glance at the offending hand as she insinuated herself next to him at the crowded table. "Hey, Trace! Deal me in."

It was harder to play while trying to keep track of Galen's hand as well as her own, and harder still to slip him some useful cards without him noticing, but it was worth it to see him begin to relax and joke with the rest of the crew as his luck began to turn. A few rounds later, Dureena saw Gideon, seated on Galen's other side, casually pass his hand over the just-dealt cards in front of the mage. He caught her eye and winked, and she smiled.

Filled! Untitled, Kenzi & Hale, Bo/Dyson.

"You know, I'm seriously rethinking this whole open concept floor plan thing," says Kenzi and Hale can't say he's thrilled either, even though he gets it a little better. Bo's a Succubus and as a Siren, he can't entirely hold that against her, and whether Dyson will admit it or not, he's mated with her and that means something to his stupid wolf brain.

Still, it doesn't mean that he's particularly keen on listening to them make out more and more desperately five feet away from them in the kitchen. It's all the sound of lips on lips and Bo's not-so-quiet moans and Dyson's low growls. Hale's not generally opposed to a bit of exhibitionism, but it's a bit awkward when it's his normally-reserved partner and a woman that's so off-limits it's not even funny going at it.

"She's sucking his chi right now, isn't she?" Kenzi says and her arms are folded across her chest. She looks unhappy and Hale's just as glad that the reckoning that's obviously coming isn't headed his way. He learned pretty quickly that Kenzi makes up for her lack of Fae heritage with determination and an endless, endless stream of words.

"Do you really want me to answer that?" he says, because he can and he will if she wants to hear it, but Hale doesn't think that Kenzi really wants to know.

She sulks in silence for a few minutes more. Hale would offer to get her another drink, because alcohol can only help in a situation like this, but that means going into the kitchen. Which.

Finally, Kenzi seems to snap. "Get a room!" she hollers and when Bo and Dyson break apart long enough to look like they're seriously considering it, Kenzi rolls her eyes theatrically in a way that's somehow become less annoying and something closer to endearing. Kenzi grabs Hale's arm and pulls. Even though there's no way someone that tiny, that human, could ever be strong enough to haul him around, he gets to his feet with her.

"Come on," she says, shooting a last, hateful glare at their partners. "We're going to the Dal. The drinks are going on Dyson's tab and you can teach me that song you're always humming to get people to follow you around."

"You know that that's not how Siren song works, right?" he says, but he's smiling as he follows Kenzi out.

BtVS, Anya and Joyce, "I could get someone to curse him if you want"

veracity

Better Than Belgian Waffles And Wine

The first time Joyce met Anya wasn't really the first.

When the marriage was falling apart and Hank was spending endless weekends and late nights away before dropping the "I need some alone time" speech, Joyce had been a good wife. She had cared for Buffy, helped him expand his practice and reputation. As an art major, then dealer, contacts were in endless supply for both of them so money was never a concern. Except he seemed to be bedding most of their social peers. That was a problem since it cut off her business, too.

The final straw had been when he took Annette, the latest in a long time of administrative assistants, to Cabo on the night of Buffy's big game. The very same game that earned a permanent record and out-of-LA move. That night, drunk in her sister Emily's living room after wishing loudly for a shriveled prick and jock itch in the wrong, but obvious place, she blinked and saw a crazy-faced, gravelly voiced monster offering her up the chance for vengeance for all of Hank's wrong-doing and "bunny activities." Joyce had been afraid to ask if that was some brothel, so she let it go.

With as much poise as possible, she had been forced to decline. It wouldn't do for Buffy to have that example after the screaming match that had lead to the drinking. The look of surprise on the strange hallucination's face proved that it was the right decision, even if late night caused some niggling regret.

Finding the same hallucination's on Xander's arm had been more surprising. And the fact the young woman remembered her was a tad alarming - and in front of Buffy, no less. But the girl who drove monsters away hadn't killed the demon, so it must be have been okay. And after awhile, the blunt, abrasive, often inconsiderate young woman became a very strong influence on Xander. That was something Joyce was grateful for once the tumor appeared: all her kids, and her kid's friends, were taken care of. She might not have given birth to Willow or Xander, but they were her kids in all the ways that counted. Somehow Anya had managed to join the pack, along with Tara. Most mornings found the two eating or cooking for the gang and Anya somehow remembered Belgian waffles with honey butter was Joyce's only comfort food that stayed down.

After the fourth mini-stay, Anya, bless the girl, had walked up to the hospital bed and loudly proclaimed,"I could get someone to curse him if you want." There had been no doubt on the target. The emergency doctor had fled, slipping on a wet patch, and in that moment, Joyce smiled in the middle of misery. Sometimes it took the smallest deeds to make the biggest impact. That, it seemed, was Anya in a nutshell. And somehow, some way, they had become friends-of-a-sort. Joyce trusted Anya to help Buffy make the hard decisions when the time came, the voice of truth. Tara would nurture, Xander would provide, Willow would ground, and Anya would make sure the money and finances would never be out.

All together, they would take care of the Summers' girls.

Sandwiches and Chaucer, Rated G

slightlytookish

2011-02-16 07:38 pm (UTC) (Link)

All Merlin could see of Gwen as he approached her table was the top of her curly head, peeking out over the tall stacks of books she had piled on either side of her, fortress-like. She had her laptop perched precariously on her Riverside Chaucer and she didn’t look up from her furious typing until Merlin placed the coffee at her elbow.

"Merlin!" She looked both delighted and completely scandalised. "You know we're not supposed to eat or drink in the library." Not that she let that little detail stop her from clinging to the coffee as though it were a lifeline and taking a long, contented-looking sip.

"We'll be careful," he said, taking the seat across from her and tugging off his coat and scarf. At Gwen’s sceptical look he smiled. "Well, you'll be careful. I'll just… keep mine on the floor and away from our things." He put the cup next to the leg of his chair and hoped he wouldn't forget about it and accidentally kick it over.

"That was very sweet of you," she said. She glanced around, looking guilty, and furtively nudged her bag toward him. Inside Merlin saw that she had packed sandwiches and enough sweets to keep them awake for hours – or at least until they finished their essays.

"Gwen," he said, grinning, "I didn't think you had it in you."

"Chaucer on an empty stomach is never a good idea," she said. She narrowed her eyes and studied him closely. "When was the last time you ate?"

"Um." Merlin wondered if it was really bad that it took him a few moments to remember. "I had one of those little soups for lunch, I think. Well, it was more like a late breakfast."

"Oh, Merlin."

"I didn't have time to eat! I had a lecture, and then I had to meet my tutor, and then I had work and you know what Gaius is like-"

"Sandwich. Now."

"But my essay-"

"You've put it off this long; it can keep for another ten minutes." She made a sudden grab for his laptop and stowed it under her chair. "You'll get that back after you've eaten," she added, looking quite pleased with herself.

"You can be surprisingly evil when you put your mind to it," Merlin said a few moments later, in between bites.

"But do I make a good sandwich?"

"The best."

Gwen smiled. "I can live with that," she said, and went back to typing.

If there was something that Kryten wasn't used to, it was the sound of crying. But there it was, soft sniffly sobs, underscored by hiccups as the cryer tried to catch their breath.

It couldn't be Mr Cat, because the last time Kryten had seen him, the feline was having one of his hourly naps.
It wouldn't be Mr Rimmer, because there wasn't a life threatening situation.
It wouldn't, and couldn't be Mr Lister, because Mr Lister Did Not Do that sort of thing.

That only left...her.

He couldn't even bring himself to think her name. But why was she crying?

He knew that she had managed to get one of the screens working so that she could watch something more intellectual than condom ping-pong, but he'd had to go and finish cleaning the cupboards at that point, so he didn't quite know what she considered more intellectual. Some of the tactics that Mr Lister used were quite brilliant, especially the one where he...

His train of thought was cut off as familiar music began to play, drowning out the sound of the sobs.

"Androids, everybody needs good androids..."

"Why did you do it, Kelly?" he heard her ask. "Why did you cheat on Brooke?"

"It wasn't Kelly at fault, " he found himself replying as he stepped into the room. "Episode 342 explains what happened to her that night."

Kochanski looked up, and Kryten handed her a tissue. There was something silent hanging in the air between them, before Kochanski spoke again.

"Would you like to watch it with me?"

Kryten smiled. "I'd like that, Miss Kochanski."

"Oh good, then you can tell me who Max is, and why Donald seems to hate him so much, and why is Cynthia running around..."

After that, a roster appeared in the kitchen, detailing the days that the salad cream would be in the fridge, and the days that it would be in the cupboard.

In a different universe they'd still have been friends, he knew that. But in a different universe they wouldn't have even met until they were both settled into their careers, both secure in accomplishments already achieved. In a different universe they'd have met as equals.

But in a different universe Jim Kirk would've had a father to go to on the rare occasions when his ego floundered. Not that he thought of Bones as a father – if anyone was allowed that slot it was Captain Pike, or maybe Ambassador Spock – but still, the pattern had been set while they were at the Academy, and Jim had to admit it was nice sometimes to settle with a book on the floor by McCoy's chair, leaning against a boney knee, pretending to study his way out of whatever jam he was in now while the older man's warmth leached through his shirt.
