balsamandash: text: "Keep calm and have a cupcake." ({ncis} the shop motto)
I'm gonna try and do more than one at a time, but for right now, I did a thing and I'm not sure I'll do more before sleep, so -- posting it is!

Day Three: Snowflake (from [personal profile] misbegotten)
(Prompt list)

now I believe the sun, it's like a symphony
No Child is Spared (original, sometimes better known as Cupcake-verse), Dave & Teddy, 592 words
Content warnings: Mentions of seasonal depression

So I had a shit week and am finally starting to find my feet, so I... write about someone recovering from a hard couple of months and finding a good morning. This was not a weird kind of catharsis at all. Also I hadn't written Dave and Teddy being happy in a while and I wanted to, so, yeah. Anyone unfamiliar with the verse, basically, a lot of people with shitty childhoods and backgrounds for various reasons end up eventually happy and orbiting a bakery. That's the nutshell, anyway.

Also the snowflakes in question are less the weather and more the rosettes, which my family has called snowflakes my entire life and I actually had to google "snowflake cookie fryer" to figure out the real name.


'Cause thus far you are the best thing that this life has yet to lose )

When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs

1. He waits until James is in the other room, curled up in what's become his spot on the couch while Clint cooks -- it's only the second day he's been willing to go sit in another room while Clint is up and doing something; that probably means something, but hell if he knows what. no idea. dont want 2 ask him. kinda skttsh. dont wanna scare him away. He sends the message, then adds, hows the search? find tall dark and deadly yet?, because Natasha will keep from giving away any details out of habit if he doesn't directly ask.

2. "David," she says instead. It's gentle, but that does nothing to stop his heart from dropping. "If you could promise I'd be a real part of this relationship, if you could tell me we'd be like any other couple waiting for their fourth, I'd say yes in a heartbeat. But you can't, can you? You've been two and waiting for too long. And I love you both, but I won't do that to myself."

3."I didn’t think ‘unorthodox’ meant ‘stupid’," he shoots at Fury, arms folded over his chest. "What part of an active Prince and a possibly-Active Sleeping Beauty in the field together sounds like a good idea to you? Do you want an Evil Fairy showing up?" Because I don’t want to go back under, Steve cuts himself off from saying. I don’t want to lose another seventy years. Who knows if I’ll survive it this time?
