For [livejournal.com profile] stainofmylove, who requested Cook/Effy, Hogwarts. 100 words this is not.

Freddie drones on next to him, but Cook’s not listening, ‘cause Eff’s caught his eye and she’s not taking notes on the Goblin Rebellion of 1617; nothing of the sort.

“Again?” Freddie groans and leans over to JJ, who just shakes his head and keeps scribbling. “You really need to stop,” Freddie insists, and Cook shoves him off, shifts two seats over to Eff and nips at her ear.

“Ready to get out of here?” he breathes and Eff laughs her dangerous laugh. Cook feels his blood run cold.

“You’re no good for me, Cook,” she says, eyes darting over to Pansy who turns her nose up at them. “Never said I was,” he chuckles and watches gooseflesh rise on her skin. “You’ll find me, yeah?”

Effy swallows, dances her fingers up his yellow tie, closing in on his throat.

“Let’s see what else I can make you do first,” she says and Cook grins, kisses her hard in the middle of class. Eff’s fingers dig in his hair and lead his hand up her skirt before she shoves him off as the bell rings. “First,” she pants, straightening her clothes even while Cook rakes her over with his eyes.

“Yeah, doll,” he says. “That’ll be the day.”

For [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral, who requested Cook/Effy, war.

The rest of their friends are lost, Cook knows it, but Effy’s hand is tight in his as they run, dodging stray bullets and looking for cover. Effy snatches up a dropped rifle as they run and Cook spares a glance at her dirt-streaked face.

Her eyes are as dead as ever.

“Cook, how much longer?” she asks, falling next to him behind the concrete rubble. Cook shakes his head. “Not long enough, sweetness,” he says. She grimaces, takes a long ragged breath, so Cook helps her up again, scans the horizon.

“Long enough,” he amends (she sets the pace).

For [livejournal.com profile] summerstorm, who requested Mary/Matthew + Anna, divorce lawyers

Matthew doesn’t know what to make of her, still. Sits in the back of the courtroom while Mary argues fiercely for her best friend and is grateful, all over, she’s not in estate law.

“You’re going to destroy Bates, you know that?” he says during the recess and Mary scoffs, putting her files away, gaze flitting over to Anna, lets his hand rest on her wrist thrills when she sucks her breath in, avoiding his gaze.

“Probably,” she agrees and gestures to her client. “And if you’re not careful, you too,” she adds, and Matthew grins.

“I’ll count on it.”

For [livejournal.com profile] earnmysong, who requested Elena Gilbert, graduate school

Her life in Mystic Falls seems like a lifetime ago. Just five years but Elena’s determined this time. She’s got a degree and no job, and she took the first chance she got at graduate school on the other side of the country; all sun and sand and no vampires.

Jeremy still calls, sometimes. She doesn’t blame him.

But it’s still hard, five years later, to pick the pieces up and try living a normal life. All the top grades and great ideas fill her up and are shadowed by what was.

She’ll run as far as she has to.

For [livejournal.com profile] cross_rubicon, who requested Caroline, future tense

Time isn’t something she thinks about anymore. Caroline still remembers, of course, but there are so many other memories crowding out her human ones.

She’s filled up the empty spaces better than she could have predicted, and three hundred years later,

Stefan’s the only one reminding her there was anything else. He was never quite right after Klaus, after the red gleam he learned to embrace and accept.

He finds her still, today on the space station, tomorrow on the floating city. Next week, another system, because the sky’s the limit and she’s here to see it.

(She’s still empty.)

For [livejournal.com profile] silverdragon76, who requested Sayid/Kate, middle of nowhere

All the jungles and beaches in the world couldn’t have prepared her for this, Kate decides. Four walls and a conscience.

The dark space inside a cell and her only visitor, a wanted terrorist living under an alias. Something went terribly, terribly wrong and he’s on the run and she’s learning to stay.

“Next week then?” she asks, the phone cradled in her shoulder. He should stay away. She asks every week. It’s all she wants – him, safe, far away. Her, forgotten. It’s all she wants.

“Not yet,” he says, and Kate sighs – hangs up the phone.

(This is nowhere.)

For [livejournal.com profile] ciaimpala who requested Emily/Jack (Revenge), psychological thriller

She feels him watching her in the shadows, marking her every move.

(She doesn’t like it, pushes him away.)

He catches her crouched over a body two weeks later and the look on his face makes her gut twist apart, reach out to him, try to fix this.

(There’s nothing left to fix.)

“I thought I knew you,” he breathes, the ghost of his words hanging in the cold morning air. Emily sheathes her gun and turns back to the body, considering.

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.

“I’m not your fairytale,” she says.

(He disappears without a word.)

Omg, I love mine. Especially Mary. She's just so very Mary in it. And the Elena drabble! Ah, sigh. Wishful thinking.
