little bits of drabbles from fics that are eyeing my ankles


Naruto/Poke'mon [yes, I'm in fandom hell!]:

Hinata smiled at Itachi as she made her way from the center. "Hey, Itachi, how goes your training?" she asked. It was common knowledge that he had a furret that kept getting into all sorts of trouble. Privately, she wondered if introducing her new eevee, Sachiko, would be just the thing to calm down the furret.

The small eevee poked her head out of Hinata's pocket. "Ee?" she chirped, leaping out and tumbling, landing at Itachi's feet. She shook her fur and licked her right front paw and quietly began to groom. "Eevee," she murmured once she was properly set again. Her blue eyes (an unexpected trait that this eevee had, unlike the others who had the proper brown eyes) took in the trainer before leaping up and examining the pokeball. She nosed it and gave a startled "Ee!" when it popped open, revealing the furret.




Monster High:

Operetta blew her red bangs off her forehead and glanced over at Cleo. "Sugar," she began in her Southern/French drawl. "You okay? You look like someone just dug up.." She paused and thought better of her statement - after all, Cleo was the daughter of the Mummy. "Okay, perhaps that wasn't my best turn of a phrase," she corrected herself before continuing. "But, Sugar, you do look dreadful. Did something happen between you and Deuce?"




Sailor Moon:
AN: set slightly before Mamoru and Usagi discover each other's secret identities [OC, mine]

Selene pulled a handful of her long silvery hair over her shoulder, and began to absently braid it as she listened to Serenity (Usagi, her mind instantly corrected. Her younger sister was called Usagi in this life) to argue with the young man in front of her (Endymion, no, Mamoru, she corrected herself. He always seemed to push her younger sister's buttons - of course, that was before they fell in passionate forbidden love). She gave a small sigh and rolled her eyes. "When you two are done with your foreplay, let me know, will you?" she asked, not bothering to look at the pair, not seeing the look of shock on both their features. "That way I know that I have to leave because the last thing I want to see is you two doing that."

She sighed softly, her gaze distant when she finally did glance at the now silent pair. She lowered her gaze again, feeling more at a loss then she ever did. All the stars were aligning (as her guardian, Nephrite, would have said. Goddess, she missed that particular guardian - he was like the brother she never had, always siding with her when she needed it) - just into a pattern she wasn't sure of any more (or any less for that matter). A single tear slid down her cheek as she remembered.

the requests came from here and here - just transferring them over
Dominant character - Flora, Winx Club
Flora's green eyes hardened as she looked at the others in her group. "Excuse me?" she asked, irritation coloring her normally pleasant and calm tones. "I am not, repeat not, going to be the one that draws the enemy out as the target where upon I'm turned into the punching bag. I've fucking had it!" she snarled, finally showing that she indeed had a temper. "Do I have a tattoo on my body that's in the shape of a bull's-eye? Hell no! I don't!"

The girls blinked, stunned by the sudden outburst by their normally calm friend. "Uh.. Flo? Decaf?" Stella innocently suggested.

Flora closed her eyes, counted to ten quietly, trying to keep herself from lashing out. Nope, still pissed off, she thought with irritation. "Okay, that's it, I've had it," she hissed. Her green eyes narrowed and a few forgotten spells escaped her lips, a deep green glow escaping her hands.

Moments later, a few new trees stood where her friends had been. She glanced over at Darcy, smiling. "And they said I'd never be a dominant female," she chirped, walking over. "So, what's next?"




Losing-His/Her-Virginity Character - Ingway/Mercedes, Odin Sphere [and behind cut!]
Read more... )




Sly Character - Tamara, Jewel Riders
Tamara tucked a lock of pink hair behind her ear and she watched and plotted carefully. Yes, that could.. no, wait, Ian could... but if she was in there, maybe he... Yes, now that she thought about it, that might.. no, wait.. Ah, the perfect set up. The age old "Ian, I need help getting something out of the closet in Gwen's room. Could you help me?" and the "Celise, I need some help picking out that dress for Gwen's party. Would you just bop into that closet of hers and take just the first dress you grab?" routine for both of them. Tamara was quite sick and tired of watching the two pussyfoot around their relationship - again. Bad enough she and Max were doing the same dance, but enough already.

~

Drake looked over at Tamara after he heard her slam a door. "Do I even want to know?"

"Just giving Celise and Ian seven minutes in heaven," she murmured slyly.

Drake just sighed and got ready to pick up the resulting pieces.




Injured Character - Bunnie Rabbot, Sonic the Hedgehog
Bunnie glanced over at Rotor, watching him work on her arm. Under normal circumstances, she would have thrown some witty quip, trying to defuse the rising tension. Unfortunately, she was too exhausted to even think of something witty. "How's sugarhog?" she asked finally, sounding exhausted, her eyes darting over to the other figure in the room.

"He's fine.. Sort of.."

"Sort of?" Bunnie asked, her voice quivering. How badly was he hurt compared to her?

"Yeah, Knuckles made it so he was drinking his chili dogs."

Bunnie winced. Lord, she loved her surly Guardian, but ye gods and little robotic fishes... She glanced over to Rotor. "Well, Doc? Will it be useful?" she asked.

"No missions for at least a week. I want to make sure my repairs are up to snuff. And Bunnie... no more Superwoman. You scared the shit out of us."




Book-Reading Character - Kakashi and daughter, Naruto
Kakashi looked down at the book, then over at the expectant little face, then down at the book again. Why had he..? Oh, yes, he thought, watching the small figure curl up in the bed, stuffed Pakkun tucked safely in her arms. That was why, he thought, reaching over to stroke the soft chocolately locks of the little girl, who would not sleep without him telling her a story.

"Now," he said quietly, a warm paternal smile hidden behind the dark navy mask. "Where were we?" he asked, flipping open the book to the last page he had read to her the night before. "Ah, here we are," he said before starting to read aloud. It was a simple story, monsters, cursed princes, princesses. The usual fluff that had it been for any other child he wouldn't be caught dead reading. But for that precious ball of fluff, curled up and already drifting off to sleep, it was worth the destruction of his "cool aloof guy" image.

He lowered his mask, knowing the small child was sound asleep and gently kissed her forehead. "Sweet dreams, my child," he whispered before silently slipping out of the room, closing the door behind him with a click.




Swimming-In-The-Buff Character - Alice, Winx Club [behind a cut!]
Read more... )



Eating-His/Her-Lunch-And-Drinking-From-A-Soda-Bottle Character - DeFour, Wizgiz, Palladium, Griselda, Winx Club.
Lunchtime at Alfea - the one event Griselda dreaded with a passion. If she had to listen to another student complain about "oh, I can't eat that, it's not on my diet" she was going to either scream or spell that child so she would eat because who wanted to look like a damn stick figure. She took a cleansing breath and took a savage bite out of her sandwich.

"What did that sandwich ever do to you?" Palladium asked, shying away from his pissed off tablemate.

"The conversation pissed me off," she gestured, knowing he could hear it.

Palladium took a sip of his soda, mulling over what he heard. "I suppose you have a point." He rolled his eyes and took a bite of his sandwich. "So, think it'll be a quiet year?"

Wizgiz glanced over at a table, then back at Palladium. "The Winx are still here..."

DeFour just groaned. "So much for quiet years."

"Two more years," Griselda sighed. "Two more years."

Orochimaru couldn't help but to begin to wonder when and where it was when he laid his morals by the wayside. So many things he had done - some of which were tinged with bittersweet regret that made him still question what was truly black and white in this world when there were so many shades of grey in a ninja's life. But now...

His golden snake eyes closed as he stood in the doorway to his apprentice's room and let out a soft sigh. He made his way in and gently adjusted the blankets, making sure the young Uchiha heir was comfortable, all the while trying to ignore the voice that sounded like his sensei's telling him that he no matter how cruel he acted, that he still had that soft side to him. Personally, Orochimaru didn't think he had a soft side left anymore - it was merely a matter of convinence that he was doing this, that he couldn't afford the Uchiha to get sick before he could preform the ritual.

Still, he thought as he picked up a stuffed toy that he knew hadn't been there when the boy arrived [something that reminded him of just how young this child really was - true, he was a teenager, but a seriously messed up one {who could say he was truly normal after what Itachi had done to him all those years ago}] and tucked it in next to him. "Sleep well," he said quietly. He turned and made his way out.

He sighed quietly and leaned against the wall. It was getting harder and harder to see him just as a future host and not as a son. He quietly cursed his newly found heart.

Jiraiya leaned back in his chair, tapping something into the pipe he claimed he didn't smoke and closed his eyes. For someone who was so closed off as his teammate claimed to be, he knew that wasn't the case. True, Orochimaru wasn't as expressive as someone like Tsunade, choosing to keep his emotions closed off, but if you knew him as well as he did, well, he could read him like an open book. For instance, he noted as he opened one eye to examine his teammate - that lower lip of his was being worried between his teeth again, which meant Orochimaru was worrying. Again. Still. "Oh, would you come off it?" Jiraiya asked, exasperatedly. "You know as well as I do that Tsunade will accept your invitation to the Kabuki play." Honestly, for a man who was a genius like Orochimaru - he sure could miss the signs.
strongheartmaid: (chibi moon)
Caring and Orochimaru rarely would be found in the same sentence - in fact, many a nin would claim that the concept would be terribly foreign to that missing nin. But those nin who would say that - they weren't Jiraiya, they weren't Tsunade. They knew remembered how gentle Orochimaru had been [Jiraiya could still recall the gentle grasp on his shoulder - where Orochimaru had gently grabbed him to keep him from falling over after breaking his ankle in a rabbit burrow], how caring he had been [Tsunade could feel that lump rising in her throat as she remembered it had been Orochimaru who had spared her the pain of identifying Nawaki, that had it had been Orochimaru that held her tightly in his arms, allowing her to weep on his shoulder after Dan had fallen]. No, the world may have forgotten all the goodness that he had done in his life - but there were those who would never forget.

AN: Because I read somewhere that Snake-Eye's first name was rumored to start with a "N" - so, with that in mind

Snake-Eyes settled down in the back of the van, his blue eyes closed as he lightly dozed on the journey to their next destination. He still wasn't sure what to make of this trip - the one that his sword brother insisted they make. He really just wanted to be in his nice warm bed, curled up with Shana and not wanting to have anyone bug him for the next week, week and a half. But no~o, Tommy just had to be invited to a wedding and had to drag along his sword brother.

He glanced over at Kimi, who quite frankly needed to lay off the sugar as she was bouncing up and down in her seat. Snake-Eyes really couldn't understand why the pair were so excited to be going to this wedding - or why he had to tag along.

"I can't believe they're finally getting married," Kimi gushed, clearly excited about this event that they were dragging him along on. "It's only been how long since they got engaged?"

Tommy glanced over at Kimi, giving her a small slap upside the back of the head. "Would you calm down?" he asked, sounding exasperated with his younger cousin. "I'm still trying to figure out the logic of why Hatake-hime would ask you to be one of her bridesmaids. You two barely interacted growing up," he pointed out.

"Because she asked Hinata-neesan to be her maid of honor, duh. And that leaves her with only three other woman to be bridesmaids, and Uchiha-san had four groomsmen so to make things even..."

Snake-Eyes stiffened at the mention of Hinata. Oh, /crap/.
strongheartmaid: (sweet)
It was the quiver of the lower lip, it was the pleading gaze in those limpid blue eyes (eyes moist with unshed tears). Of all the things that made Sasuke question his silent vow to avenge his family, it would be the sad, pleading expression on the face of the woman he loved. He sighed quietly, closing his eyes as he thought. He was no closer to finding Itachi, no closer to avenging the murder of his parents, of his clan. But.. He shook his head slightly. "Why is it that I can not win against those eyes?" he asked quietly. "All right, hime," he said softly, opening his arms.

Sachiko silently made her way over and curled into his arms, her head resting even with his heart. "Welcome home," she murmured softly.

Sasuke glanced over her head and glowered at Naruto, who playfully mimicked a whip being cracked. Oh, he'd be getting even for that later.

Naruto gulped at the look Sasuke was shooting him - maybe it wouldn't be too late to take Hinata and move to Sand (anything to avoid being targetted for revenge by Sasuke). He took a few steps backwards and quickly ran.

Sasuke smirked at his retreating figure.
strongheartmaid: (plot bunny)
It was just a small box - nothing flashy, easily overlooked. But the contents hidden within - the small box held such hope, such promise. He glanced at the box in his hand, the one that would seal his fate from now until the day he died. He quietly walked over to her, settling down next to her. "Hey," he murmured softly, wrapping an arm around her shoulders. "I got you something."

"Oh?" she answered, tilting her head to look at him.

He offered the small box, trying to not as nervous as he felt. A silent prayer escaped him as he waited to see her reaction of the contents.

She opened it slowly, her eyes widening in surprise before she glanced at him. "Is this?" she asked.

He nodded. "Will.. Will you do me the honor of being my wife?" he asked.

She studied the ring before sliding it on. "If you will be my husband, then I will be your wife," she answered, a smile crossing her features.

He let out a cry of delight and kissed her deeply.

Shana's green eyes studied the new trainees sparring, her head tilting to the side as she tried to make sense of the dodges, the blows, the moves - and why Tommy's newest was pulling his punches when sparring with Snake's. There was something there that neither were saying - but it was almost understood.

Sasuke's dark eyes reflected unspoken concern for his lady, not that he would mention it aloud - especially since she was still bristly from being called a "chirpie" by, what did he call himself, Beachhead? He could still feel his eyebrow arching when he thought of those codenames - privately, he wondered what they'd be awarded (knowing his luck, it'd be Beast or something like that, especially if his curse seal stirred to life).

Sachiko continued her best to hold her own against Sasuke - but he was always the stronger of the two and, unfortunately, the better fighter. She gave the universial gesture of a "t" calling for a time out so she could catch her breath. "Damn, you've gotten better," she said, sounding winded.

Sasuke gave her a wry grin, reaching over to ruffle her silver streaked hair. "Thank you, hime," he said, "but you're not bad yourself. Almost had me a couple of times."

Sachiko blushed a pretty rose with that. "Thank you," she murmured, leaning over to lightly kiss his cheek. "But stop pulling your punches. I'm not glass."

Sasuke's hand reached over and gently gave her right shoulder a brief rub, working the ache out of it. He said nothing, just gently worked on her shoulder, before lowering his hand to gently massage her waist. "I know," he said softly, "but you are so infinitely precious to me and I don't want to hurt you."

-

Sachiko had removed her kimono top, revealing a thin sports bra, and began working out. She could feel several eyes on her but pointedly ignored them. Or at least made the effort - she knew sooner or later one of the others would ask.

Courtney glanced over and gave a low whistle. "That looks painful," she said, nodding at the scar.

Sachiko glanced at her shoulder. "Stomach is worse," she said simply, trying to focus on the reps, and not on the memory of the scars.

Shana's eyebrows arched as high as they could go. "How?"

Sachiko was silent for a long moment, a soft smile crossing her features. "Protecting those that mean the world to me," she said, not caring if that wasn't the answer that Shana-san had been wanting. Her eyes closed tightly as she recalled the chunnins - how she and Sakura had fought to protect the injured Naruto-niichan and Sasuke, how Kin drove the twin kunai into her stomach and shoulder, twisting the blades to inflict the most damage. "And no, I don't want to talk about it. Allow me some privacy."

Kayura had been bent over, smoothing the off-white leggings when she heard the familiar whistle of her husband. She shook her head, half amused by the response, her deep blue hair swishing slightly with the gesture. She glanced up slowly, a smile crossing her features before her cheeks heated up and a heady crimson flushed across her pale skin. Damn it, he /would/ tease her by wearing his ANBU gear when she was supposed to be leaving to go on her latest (and last, albeit, they didn't know it would be her last) assigned mission. "No fair teasing," she pouted.

"You're one to talk," Kakashi said, his eye drifting over his wife's figure. "Oh you of the tight-fitting, leaving nothing to the imagination bodysuit," he said, striding over to his wife and wrapping his arms around her.

Kayura chuckled and lowered his mask, ignoring his noise of protest and gently captured his lips. It would be a while before she got to do this again - while her mission would be a handful of days, his would last much longer (and because of the nature of the mission, she was given little information - save that it was important and shouldn't be longer then a month). "You know you like this outfit," she teased.


AN: time reference - Kakashi/Kayura are newly married and Kakashi's still ANBU. Kayura retires from missions after this mission due to finding out about their future Christmas present

Tommy adjusted his gloves, making sure the wraps were nice and tight when he spotted the youth dropping onto a chair, leaning against the bar. There was an odd tattoo on his left arm - one that looked vaguely familiar. He settled back down, wanting to watch and see what was going on. He could wait a few more minutes before he'd be officially late to their training session. Whoever this kid was he - was far too young to be here. He picked up his bottle and sipped it slowly, studying the youth.

Sasuke took the bottle he had gotten from the bartender and sipped it slowly. He refrained from making a face - Kami, how could they drink this crap? He suddenly understood why she kept ordering shochu after the missions when faced with the choice of this crap and that. He took another drink when he realized he had been thinking about her again.

Tommy studied the child's face, saw the look of longing that had passed over it and nodded to himself. Well, Snakes had been bitching that he hadn't taken a student on who knew how long. He rose slowly and made his way over. His left hand shot up and caught the kunai that had come flying. He smirked. Kid was good, he thought before catching sight of the eyes that were looking at him. Oh, /hell/. Why did it have to be one of them? He prayed to all the powers that be and took a steadying breath, pulling the child up from the chair and walked him out the door, but not before dropping payment for their drinks.

The drive back to the base was quiet as both ninjas were lost in their thoughts. A rare smile crossed Tommy's features as they entered the Pit and caught sight of Snake-Eyes and... He blinked a moment at the reaction his new student had. Well, that was unexpected, he thought, watching the two run to each other and embrace.

Snake-Eyes's shoulders shook in silent mirth - leave it to Tommy to play Cupid.

A/N: second half of Evidence

Sakura took a wet cloth and wiped the mud, dust and blood off her. Nothing like an impromptu run through Konoha trying to avoid a rather pissed off half cat half human. She dropped into a chair and glanced up at the ceiling. "Okay, okay, you were right," she said, lowering her gaze to see Naruto in the chair opposite her.

"I told you experimenting on Sasuke would be a bad idea, but did you listen? No~o. Why listen to Naruto? He only knows Sasuke better then you do since he's his best friend," he said dryly. "So, how much longer do we have until..." he paused and looked at Sakura. "You didn't.."

"I didn't realize this was going to happen," she confessed.

Naruto's hand slapped his forehead. "Sakura, the next time you get the brilliant idea to play mad scientist, remember this and refrain," he sighed. Great, looks like they were going to have to find a catnip mouse the size of.. Did they even make mice that big? He sighed again. Of all the times for this to happen, it would happen when the two nins that used what was being dubbed magic were out on a training mission and weren't due back for another few days.

Kayura settled down on the floor, a small girl sitting opposite her. She smiled softly and ruffled the younger girl's hair. "All right," she began. "Just like I showed you," she said, settling down to watch her little girl practice.

Sachiko gave a firm nod and concentrated on forming the watery orb in her hands. She closed her eyes tightly and tried to keep it in a small ball. However, it was just so hard to keep focused on the ball of water when she really wanted to be outside playing with her friends, especially Itachi-niichama and Sasuke-chan.

Of course, with that tiny lapse of concentration brought on by thinking about the Uchiha brothers, the water orb broke.

Kayura buried her face in her hand as it started to rain inside.

"Magic practice indoors? Seriously, Kayura?" Kakashi asked as he walked inside and spotted the impromptu monsoon. Well, there went a few paychecks to replace the furniture. Again.

Kayura flushed prettily and rubbed the back of her neck. "I didn't think she'd lose her train of thought."

"Daddy!" Sachiko cried, running over and hugging her father tightly.

Sky settled down in a chair, tilting his head back so he could stare up at the ceiling of the room they were in. He glanced down at the sound of a chair being scraped backwards and someone dropping heavily into it. He lowered his gaze back and noted the newcomer to the room - now, where.. Oh, right, one of the /others/ - one of the currently active ones that was getting the oh so loving handling. "So, what she do to you?"

"What hasn't she done?" the male answered, his dark eyes studying the blond. "In a current thread she's running with a friend, she has me believing I'm a long deceased ancestor. And there's yet another where I'm a cat or a dragon. I swear, she's.."

"Insane?" Sky helpfully supplied for Sasuke. He blinked his blue eyes and offered a wearied smile to some of the others that slowly trooping in. "So, who brought the coffee?" he asked, nodding a greeting to one of the werewolves. Thank goodness that they didn't have to greet each other canine style - that would make things awkward as hell.

"I did," Ian said, laying it on the coffee table. "Rumor has it that a few new ones were coming."

"Maybe we should warn them that she puts us muses through interesting stories?" Seiji asked, sipping his coffee. It wasn't tea, but it'd do. He gave a two fingered wave to Scorpan. "Warning, I thought I heard talk that she's going to be visiting you lot soon."

Scorpan merely groaned. "Not again. Seriously?"

"Yep," Seiji answered. "And to make matters worse, it's an universal blending."

That earned a collective shudder from all the muses in the room - that was a sign of hideous things to come.

"What universe am I getting merged with?" he asked weakly.

"Mine, I think," Seiji answered. "I think I'm scheduled to be linked with you."

Scorpan groaned again.

And the final chapter of "Blood"/"Funeral" - I'm may revisit this 'verse at some other point. Vague whiff of a crack pairing. And I think it's safe to say that this is firmly within the realm of AU - given my complete warping of canon (such as giving Orochimaru a certain clan's last name and giving Fugaku of all people the most interesting of people as parents).

Tsunade glared at the little stick, daring it to continue it's mocking of her - she wanted her answer, and she wanted it now. Why were these things have to be so blasted slow? In this day and age, these little tests should go quicker then this, but no~o. It had to be slower then molasses in winter. She sighed and settled down to work on those reports while she waited for the results.

Hashirama glanced at his granddaughter and then at the stick, his eyebrow arching ever so slightly. "New testing equipment for poisons?" he asked, hoping that was what it was. If looks could kill then he'd be a smear on the floor. Right, he thought, trying to come up with several different options and all ending with the same result - none of which was pretty. He massaged the growing ache by his left temple.

Tobirama glanced at the stick and then at Tsunade. "Is it supposed to have that plus?" he asked.

Tsunade's pen left a huge ink stain as she pressed far too hard when she heard her granduncle's question. So, that was why she had been feeling sick for those couple of days. She smiled wanly to herself, wishing Orochimaru was here. "Yes," she said softly. "Yes, it is." She stood slowly and made her way to the memorial rock. She knelt down and touched Orochimaru's name gently. "Congratulations, Papa," she said softly.

Nine months later, she cradled her first and only child, stroking his dark hair gently. There might not have been his father's distinctive eye marks, but there were other markings that screamed that this child was Orochimaru's. "Shh, sleep my little Fugaku," she crooned. "My little Uchiha prince." She glanced up to see her grandfather's one time lover standing there, and she arched a brow.

Madara walked over and gently touched the dark hair. "He'll bring change to this world," he said quietly.

Tsunade merely nodded. "I'll send him to you when he's old enough to train," she said finally.

Madara nodded in return. "He will be the best, and his father will be proud of him," he added, missing his grandson something fierce.
