Drabble 1: Trick or Treat

Prompt: All Hallow's Eve

Fandom: Bleach

Characters: Grimmjow x Ichigo

Ichigo growled under his breath, another Hollow falling under Zangetsu's blade. Why tonight of all nights? I mean, he got the joke; All Hallow's Eve, and Hollows invade. It was like a freaking nightmare.

As quickly as they had appeared, the Hollows were gone, and Ichigo blinked, his breath a misting in the chilly October air. Turning to look up, he raised an eyebrow at the blue-haired Espada. "When I said Trick-or-Treat, this isn't what I had in mind," he said, right before the other man leaned down to kiss him. "Then again, maybe the treat will be worth it."

Drabble 2: Catty

Prompt: Autumn
Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Tanuma, Nyanko-sensei/Madara

Natsume watched Nyanko-sensei chase the leaves falling from nearby trees and scattering on the ground. It was fun to watch him behave like a cat should among the colorful autumn display.

Next to him, his dark eyes watching the cat, Tanuma observed, "He really is a cat, isn't he?"

Overhearing him, Nyanko-sensei shifted, and the huge form of Madara roared at the black-haired boy, insulted. Tanuma just grinned, sensing Madara's presence but unable to actually see his more majestic form. Madara shifted back to Nyanko-sensei and sulked, but Natsume laughed happily, here with the two people he cared for most.

Drabble 3: A New Coat

Prompt: Autumn
Fandom: 07-Ghost
Fandom character(s): Teito, Frau, Labrador, Castor, Burupya, Hakuren

Teito shivered in the cool autumn air. On his shoulder, Burupya puffed up into a warm ball of fur, chittering happily.

"Why don't you wear a coat, stupid?" Hakuren asked, his own slender form bundled up warmly. Teito didn't bother answering.

"Because he's too stubborn to ask for a new one, since his other one got ruined," Frau grouched behind them. Teito glared; and whose fault, exactly, was that?

"Leave the boy be, Frau," Labrador chastised, smiling as he and Castor stepped forward, holding a brand new wool coat for Teito. "Besides, this was your plan all along, wasn't it?"

Drabble 4: Autumn Festival
Prompt: Autumn

Fandom: No. 6
Fandom character(s): Sion, Nezumi

Never before had Sion witnessed such a spectacular event as the Autumn Festival in West Block. People flooded the streets, and laughter filled the air. Even Nezumi seemed to be enjoying himself, more relaxed than Sion had ever seen him.

It wasn't that the people were wealthy, or filled with holiday cheer, but it was the first Autumn Festival since the secrets hidden behind the walls of No. 6 had come to light, and the citizens celebrated their survival.

When Nezumi casually took Sion's hand, carefully not looking at the smaller boy, Sion smiled. It was good to be alive.

Drabble 5: Retrieval
Prompt: Autumn
Fandom: Get Backers
Fandom character(s): Ban, Ginji

"We're here to work," Ban snapped, shifting through another huge pile of leaves. Autumn had started with a vengeance, cold and wet, but they needed money so they could buy a hot drink.

His irritatingly cheerful partner laughed, sending another pile of leaves scattering. "But Ban," he argued, "if we scatter them all, won't it be easier to find?"

Spotting something shiny near Ginji's foot, Ban grinned and picked up the client's wedding band.

"Mission complete," he said cheerfully. "I'll just go and deliver this, shall I?" He walked away, leaving Ginji to rake up the wet leaves behind him.

Drabble 6: Forethought

Prompt: Autumn
Fandom: Gundam Wing
Fandom character(s): Heero, Duo

Duo ducked under an overhang, shivering and cursing as he squeezed water out of his hair. His teeth chattered, and he damned the weatherman for missing the turn in the weather. It didn't matter that autumn, by its very nature, was unpredictable.

Heero stood next to him. He didn't so much as shiver, and Duo scowled. He shook his head, water flying everywhere. A sudden yank, and his braid was in Heero's fist, his body pressed against the other boy's.

"Hey!" he spluttered, "how come you're not soaked?!"

Heero shrugged, then held out his other hand. "I had an umbrella."

Drabble 7: Frolicking
Prompt: Autumn
Fandom: Bleach
Fandom character(s): Nel (child), Ichigo

Nel frolicked in the leaves, laughing merrily, and Ichigo smiled indulgently. She was such a sweet little thing in this form, and he had thought that perhaps she'd enjoy playing in the human world, which was far more colorful than Las Noches, especially during the autumn season.

Don and Peche were had been firmly banned from the human world. Who knew what sort of havoc they're wreak if left to their own devices?

He crouched down when Nel beckoned to him, and she threw herself into his arms, giggling like the sweet-natured girl she was. Ichigo hugged her back, content.

Drabble 8: Useless
Prompt: Autumn
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Fandom character(s): Edward, Alphonse, Roy

Fire danced from his fingertips, an awesome display of oranges and yellows and reds that put brightest autumn colors to shame. On either side of him stood an Elric brother, their hands snapping together in quick succession before they hit the ground.

The sky opened up suddenly, drenching a fuming Roy Mustang. With a grin, Ed shouldered him out of the way, taunting him. "Completely useless in the rain, aren't you, bastard Colonel?"

With a low growl, Roy reached out and grabbed his braid, yanking him backwards and delivering a punishing kiss to the surprised blond. "Not completely," he smirked.

Drabble 9: Lost in Thought

Prompt: Grateful

Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Tanuma, Nyanko-sensei/Madara

Natsume walked through the hallways absent-mindedly, his mind still on his idiotic best friend. Not that Natsume wasn't grateful that Tanuma had saved him, but the other boy had tried to save him from something he couldn't normally see. When Tanuma had been attacked, and they had found him unconscious, Natsume had thought his heart would break.

A hand clasping his shoulder startled him out of his thoughts, and Natsume turned to look at Tanuma, who smiled at him. "Here to complain?" he asked. Natsume shook his head and smiled; he had never been much good at that, after all.

Drabble 10: Shut Up
Prompt: Grateful
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Fandom character(s): Edward, Roy, Alphonse [mentioned]

"You could be a little bit grateful, you damn brat!" Roy snapped, dark eyes narrowed dangerously. Ed scowled at him, clearly not listening to a word he was saying. "I am constantly covering up for you and Alphonse. Mostly you!" He growled; he never should've let the brothers join the military. They were too young, too immature, and too inexperienced. He couldn't protect them when they constantly, constantly caused trouble!

Edward sighed and walked around his desk. Leaning down, he gave a very surprised Mustang a brief kiss, then turned and walked out the door, muttering, "Finally, he shut up."

Drabble 11: Winter Sake

Prompt: Snow, Ice, Winter
Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Tanuma, Nyanko-sensei

Natsume shivered, blinking as snow blew into his eyes. Tanuma walked beside him, his head bowed against the wind. Natsume's fingers grew numb, and he growled. Where was Nyanko-sensei? They had been heading for home, trying to beat the snowstorm, when he had taken off into the forest.

Tanuma had come across Natsume, and had accompanied him. The blond smiled, then cried out as he slipped on a hidden sheet of ice, skidding downhill. Tanuma came after him, calling his name, but Natsume just stared at his drunk guardian, who had a container of winter sake at his side.

"Nyanko-sensei!"

Drabble 12: Hot Chocolate

Prompt: Snow, Ice, Winter
Fandom: 07-Ghost
Fandom character(s): Teito, Frau

Teito scowled as he shivered in the cold air, his new coat wrapped tightly around his slender frame. He hated winter; the cold, the wind, the overcast skies. Even snow was something to be avoided, hiding dangerous patches of ice.

He sighed miserably, then turned to look up at the blond Guardian, who stared steadily back at him before holding out a mug of hot chocolate. "Labrador sent me," he grunted.

Teito took it from him, sipping carefully, then sighed in pleasure. Frau wrapped his arms around him, his body radiating warmth. Well, maybe winter wasn't so bad, after all.

Drabble 13: Winter Kiss

Prompt: Snow, Ice, Winter

Fandom: No. 6
Fandom character(s): Sion, Nezumi

Sion took aim, then lobbed a ball of snow at an unsuspecting Nezumi. Maybe not so oblivious, as he found himself flat on his back two seconds later, whimpering as melting ice crystals slithered down the back of his coat, making him shiver with the chill of winter.

Nezumi stared down Sion, his dark eyes amused. "Aren't you a little old for this?" he asked. Reaching out, he gathered snow and dumped it on top of Sion, who howled, brushing ineffectively at the snow on his face. Warm lips pressed against his, melting the snow between them, and Sion smiled.

Drabble 14: Precarious Footing

Prompt: Holiday

Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Matoba

Natsume ran, his feet sliding precariously. The Book of Friends was tucked safely in its pack on his hip, but if the youkai chasing him actually caught him, that wouldn't matter. Of all the times for Nyanko-sensei to decide he needed a holiday!

Skidding across a sheet of ice, his arms floundered uselessly as he tried, and failed, to keep his balance. As he fell, Natsume could feel the youkai behind him, all glowing eyes and sharp teeth.

A blast of power shot past him, and the youkai died. Natsume, still seated on the ground, sighed in resignation. "Hello, Matoba-san."

Drabble 15: Where're We Headed?
Prompt: Holiday

Fandom: 07-Ghost
Fandom character(s): Teito, Frau, Burupya, Hakuren

Burupya chirruped merrily on Teito's shoulder. Hakuren stood there, hands on his hips, and argued, "See? Even Burupya thinks a holiday vacation is a good idea!"

Teito frowned; he still wasn't sure this was a good idea. What if they left the city and something happened? He didn't want to put his friends in danger. He couldn't lose Hakuren, too.

"Did somebody say vacation?" a smooth, deep voice asked, and both boys turned to look up at Frau. He grinned wolfishly. "I'm game. The others can hold down the fort," he said cheerfully, arm wrapping around Teito. "So…where're we headed?"

Drabble 16: Stay the Night

Prompt: Holiday

Fandom: No. 6
Fandom character(s): Sion, Nezumi

Sion lay in bed, Nezumi's warmth wrapped around him. It wasn't often that the older boy stayed with Sion after lovemaking, but holidays were special.

Of course, Sion wouldn't call the anniversary of their meeting a holiday, but if it meant that Nezumi stayed with him, he'd call it anything. Still, he found himself unable to sleep, worried that if he closed his eyes, Nezumi would disappear on him again.

Warm lips pressed against the back of his neck. "Go to sleep," Nezumi muttered roughly. "Promise I'll be here when you wake up."

Sion smiled, relaxing; Nezumi never broke promises.

Drabble 17: Infectious

Prompt: Holiday
Fandom: Get Backers
Fandom character(s): Ban, Ginji, and others

Ban leaned against the wall, watching his partner bounce around, pestering his friends. Not even their latest case could dampen the holiday cheer that had infected the blond.

Kazuki humored him, completely unfazed by the other boy's boundless energy. Shido growled at him repeatedly, but allowed himself to be dragged into whatever nonsense Ginji was up to, regardless. Juubei watched quietly, as calm and unreadable as ever. Everybody else was just as excited and upbeat as Ginji. Except for Ban.

But when brown eyes and a blinding smile were turned his way, Ban gave in. It was Christmas, after all.

Drabble 18: Birthday Celebrations
Prompt: Holiday

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Fandom character(s): Heero, Duo

Duo eased up on his target. Crouched low, he quickly calculated his odds. It was risky, but the potential benefits outweighed the possible danger.

Hollering, he leapt on his prey…who wasn't there. Hands grabbed his braid, and he yelped as he was pinned. He could feel the heat behind him as a sleep-roughened voice growled, "That was stupid, Duo. What are you doing?"

"I just wanted to celebrate the holiday with you. My birthday," he purred. There was a pause as Heero digested that. Moments later, a startled Duo was straddling Heero.

"Then you should have said so," Heero smiled.

Drabble 19: Celebration
Prompt: Holiday
Fandom: Bleach
Fandom character(s): Ichigo, Grimmjow

Grimmjow couldn't believe the number of holidays the human world celebrated. In Las Noches, the only time anybody rejoiced was after soundly crushing their enemies beneath their feet.

Ichigo didn't seem to find it odd in the least, though, which made Grimmjow wonder about him. He certainly didn't seem interested in celebrating any holiday that passed by, though the rest of his family seemed eager enough.

When he asked why, one night, curled around the smaller boy after a rough bout of lovemaking that left them both sated, Ichigo replied with a roughly muttered, "Because you're celebration enough." Grimmjow purred.

Drabble 20: An Unexpected Gift
Prompt: Jealousy, Anger, Love

Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume

Tanuma hadn't been able to stop the jealousy when he realized that Natsume could see youkai, when he could only sense them. Then he had been forced to watch Natsume's desperation, his helpless anger when a youkai possessed Tanuma to retrieve the shards of a broken mirror.

The youkai gave Tanuma an unexpected gift. She let him see what Natsume saw, and jealousy slowly morphed into love. Natsume could see them, and still he helped them. They hunted him, and still he felt for them.

When she left, Natsume was there, worried. "I'm all right," Tanuma smiled. And he was.

Drabble 21: Special Bonds
Prompt: Jealousy, Anger, Love
Fandom: 07-Ghost
Fandom character(s): Teito, Burupya, Hakuren

Hakuren watched Teito playing with the baby dragon. He knew of its importance to the other boy, that it was the reincarnation of his best friend, who had died rather than betray him. It was obvious that they shared a special bond, and that Hakuren had no right to his anger.

Trying to force down the jealousy, Hakuren watched green eyes turn to him, watched as that gaze softened into something like love, and Teito smiled sweetly. "Hakuren! Won't you come play with us?" Burupya chirruped his agreement, and Hakuren surrendered. Who could ever resist the both of them, anyhow?

Drabble 22: A Different Life
Prompt: New, Old

Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Tanuma, Taki, Nyanko-sensei

Natsume watched Taki and Tanuma play with Nyanko-sensei, grinning. The cat preferred Tanuma's company, but the boy wouldn't protect him from the excitable Taki.

It was so different from his old life, before he had come to live with the Fujiwaras. He could tell these two about the youkai, and they'd believe him. Still, old habits die hard, and he was finding it difficult. He didn't want to expose them to danger, but he knew that keeping them in the dark might get them hurt worse.

Tanuma waved. "You coming?" he called. Natsume smiled and stood up, following his new friends.

Drabble 23: Broke

Prompt: New, Old
Fandom: Get Backers
Fandom character(s): Ban, Ginji, Shido, Kazuki

Ban sighed. This was getting old. They'd get a new job, complete it, but then somehow end up right back where they'd started. Broke.

Their car had been impounded again, and they didn't have the money to get it back. Shido and Kazuki had come to the café, Shido boasting about his last job and the money he had been received for his services. Kazuki had given him a sympathetic look, the cold bastard, then bought a large pizza and left.

The door jingled, and Ban straightened, greeting the customer with a smile. Maybe this one would work out. Maybe.

Drabble 24: New World

Prompt: New, Old
Fandom: Gundam Wing
Fandom character(s): Heero, Duo

Duo stared at the stars longingly. He missed the good old days, when he was free to roam space as he pleased. The end of the war and the destruction of their Gundams had left them all devastated, but he had taken it harder than the others. After all, Death Scythe had been his freedom, and now it was gone, and all five Gundam Pilots were banned from leaving the planet until things were "settled".

Footsteps sounded behind him, and Duo turned to smile sadly at his lover, who hugged him silently. "Welcome to the new world, Heero," he said.

Drabble 25: Frolicking
Prompt: New, Old

Fandom: Bleach
Fandom character(s): Ichigo,

Ichigo growled, his temper barely held in check as he paced the alleyways of Sereitei, picking random directions whenever he hit a dead end. Who did the old guy think he was, anyhow? Just because he was the strongest Captain, that didn't give him the right to boss Ichigo around. Where the hell was that bastard?

"Is there a reason for your unwelcome intrusion?" a cool voice drawled, and Ichigo looked up at Byakuya Kuchiki, realizing that he was surrounded by the Sixth Division.

Ichigo grinned at the uptight aristocrat. "You haven't seen my new friend around here, have you?"

Drabble 26: A Long Day
Prompt: New, Old
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Fandom character(s): Edward, Roy, mentions of Alphonse

Roy Mustang was at the end of his rope. How could two boys possibly cause so much trouble? He had only left them alone for two days in an old, abandoned ghost town. Two days!

He had sent the Elric brothers to that town, indicating that there might be some new information regarding the creation of Philosopher's Stones, but he hadn't expected them to actually find anything. Or to level what remained of the town in the process.

Edward greeted him loudly. "Hey, bastard! You were actually right for once!"

Roy sighed; it was going to be a long day.

Drabble 27: Important Treasures
Prompt: Resolution

Fandom : Natsume Yuujinchou
Fandom character(s): Natsume, Tanuma, Madara

"Oh? What happened to the determination, human?" the youkai growled, claws digging hard into Natsume's slender throat. Natsume choked, fingers scrabbling uselessly at the youkai's wrist, but his focus was on the black-haired boy currently hanging from the youkai's other hand, unconscious and helpless.

Nyanko-sensei was nowhere to be found, and Natsume felt his resolution slipping. The Book of Friends was an important treasure, but Tanuma's continued existence was imperative to Natsume's own. Maybe if he just gave Reiko's keepsake up?

"Let. Him. Go!" he snapped, kicking the youkai as Madara came to the rescue, finally. It was about time!

Drabble 28: Peace Resolution
Prompt: Resolution
Fandom: Gundam Wing
Fandom character(s): Heero, Duo

The Peace Resolution, they called it. Just a useless pile of scrap paper, Duo had snorted. It had resulted in the breakdown of patrolled borders and local law enforcement authority. And the destruction of all five Gundams. There were no countries anymore, and all territories fell under the jurisdiction of the Preventers.

The other pilots hadn't agreed with it any more than Duo had, but they had been too busy trying to survive after the war to try and make anyone reconsider. Heero had summed it up best. "Everybody's dead, they just haven't realized it yet." No one had argued.
