For meme: BEFORE THE BEGINNING

<3

"I understand."  The words fell from my lips automatically, lifeless in the dead, rank air of the vault. 

Amata didn’t notice or she didn’t want to notice.  Her lips lifted, her eyes smiled, her voice sounded so hopeful when she said “thank you.” Numbly, I realized there was a single tear tracing down her cheek that she brushed away before anyone else might see.

Suddenly everything was compressed.  It was difficult to breath, difficult to see.  Turning, I shoved past Cross and stumbled my way through suddenly strange, unfamiliar corridors until I found the exit.

WHAT IF <3
nelwynp

“Since when?”  He laughs, but it sounds forced.  “Besides, ain’t like you’ve told me your story.”

Nor can I.  Even if I wanted to, the slaver on the stair makes certain that I can’t.  Instead, I just glower; let him think I’m pissed for him calling me out on it—and yeah, ok, maybe I am a little.  Then I shrug and say, “Got ambushed just outside some SatCom relays I was sacking.  Fuckers popped me one over the head, sold me down the tunnel, and here I am.  Happy?”

Butch watches me a moment longer; sighs.  “You been gone a good while, all right?  So, y’know, when you didn’t turn up to harass me anymore, maybe I started getting a bit worried.  Cause I wanted to pay you back that knuckle sandwich I owe you.  So, I went hunting you down, and came across these guys what said they saw you.  They bring me here, and next thing I know there’s a whole army of ‘em surrounding me.  I tried fighting ‘em, of course, got a few of em real good, too.  Then, eh—”

“They slapped you in irons and threw you in with the rest of us.”

“Yeah.  That.” 

Our eyes meet, and I know we both know we’re lying about something.  Somehow there’s a sick sense of camaraderie in it.  At the very least, both of us are slaves, and both our asses are on the line if we don’t get back to work. 

Also NEXT and POV. Cause I’m greedy.

Next:
staring at me expectantly.  “Oh, all right!”
POV -  Imma put this one in a different post cause it’ll be long and difficult to write. XD <3
The End!
OK I’mma kinda cheat with this one, because it’s the ending I already wrote to the Fallout Fic that is now totally obsolete. ;D But it’s written. And the conversation may still be included somewhere in the rewrite if it fits (under a cut because long.):

Hello beautiful! You've been tagged! Share five random facts & pass this on to your 10 favourite followers!

OK I’ve been staring at this for days like it’s rocket science and that’s stupid, so here goes:

Five random facts (about me, if memory serves on this meme):

1)  When I was a kid (<10) I used to love those Disney shorts on how to draw/animate.  Y’know, the ones with Goofy?  Right up until there was this one that…I can’t remember what words were used exactly, but my young impressionable mind decided what they meant was “If you cannot draw an absolutely perfect circle in one clean stroke the first time you try, you will absolutely never amount to anything as an artist and you might as well give up.”  I tried for weeks, and finally gave up in tears. Obv i got over it, but man was I a stupid kid.

2) Though I try to be pragmatic about everything, I’m a deeply superstitious person at heart.  I always knock on wood when I say something stupid about bad things happening, and get nervous when I can’t. I don’t walk under ladders when it can be helped.  I fully believe in ghosts and other supernatural phenomenon—the last because I’ve lived in haunted houses.  It isn’t pleasant.

3)  I have this really strong tick about not being a “bother” to people, and feeling like I am somehow inconveniencing someone with my existence is the surest way to get me to back off forever.  This tendency has actually lead to a sharp hearing loss in my left ear, as when I was about ten-ish I refused to “bother” my mother with an earache for three months until the day came when I was in so much pain I couldn’t see straight or walk in straight line. 

4)  I looove supernatural horror movies and video games so much, no matter the ghastly nightmares they give me.  Fangirl about horror movies with me and you have a friend for life.

5) I play all games on their easiest possible settings the first time through, and have to train myself up to a “normal” difficulty run.   I don’t think this is a bad thing, actually, and will fight anyone who tries to say I’m not a gamer.  :<

Game of Thrones

BAAAAAAAH.  OK, this is purely based on the TV show not the books. So with that in mind:

  • my favorite female character

Daenerys & Sansa.  No, I am not choosing. XD  They are both just so goddamn amazing I can’t even go into it without writing pages on pages on pages of material. Daenerys rising above her life-long abuse at her brother’s hands, & Sansa becoming this utterly badass class-act lady who manages to survive in one of the most deadly places on the planet (fuck the wall, that’s a cake walk next to the red palace).

  • my favorite male character

Thiiiis is much more tough.  Despite both their very obvious issues, I’m going to have to say Jamie Lannister and the Hound.  Like, they both seem to be capable of seeing this world exactly as it is in a way that no one else, not even Tyrion for all his know-what-you-are speeches, can see.  They’re also both rather distraught by it, and take very different approaches to mask that distress.  The Hound has just shut himself down and become as distant as he possibly can from all emotion, and Jamie just hides it behind sarcasm and mirth, refusing to look too sharply at the things he knows are wrong.  Until lately, anyway.  None of that excuses the horrors they’ve committed, of course, but I can appreciate what made them go there.

  • my favorite book/season/etc

So far Season 3 is my favorite.  The show just seems to get better as it progresses.  I’m on pins and needles for the next episode!

  • my favorite episode (if its a tv show)

Guuuuuuuuh did you have to go here?  It’s from this season and I don’t wanna say which or even what cause I KNOW YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT YET, WOMAN.  But i will say that Dany is all the badass. ALL OF IT.  THEY HAD TO BREAK HER PARTS INTO CAREFULLY DOLLED OUT CHUNKS SO AS TO NOT OVERWHELM THE VIEWER WITH PURE UNADULTERATED BADASS.

  • my favorite cast member

I think i just figured out that this might actualy mean the actor/actress?  And uh…i know next to nothing about the actual cast members.  Except that Sansa’s actress is adorable and righteously awesome about defending Sansa, so I’ll go with her. :D

  • my favorite ship

Jeoffry/Shadow Demon.

Ahahaha, no no, seriously.  Dany/Sansa, Sansa/Margarete, Dany/Sansa/Margarete.  In other words:  Women who should just rule westeros as the badass queen babes they are and that’d just solve everyone’s problems forever.  Oh, and Jamie/Brianne of course. Goes without saying, really.

  • a character I’d die defending

Basically every female character on this show, with the possible exception of cersei.  Maybe even Cersei.

  • a character I just can’t sympathize with

Other than the obvious target (Jeoffry), Theon Greyjoy.  I feel sorry for him, for what’s happened this season, and it really has gone WAAAAYYY too far, to the point that i haven no fucking clue why they haven’t just killed him and be done with it except that they need a porn quota of some kind and they’re counting that.  But ugh.  UGH.  Even with all of that, I just *cannot* with him. 

  • a character I grew to love

Again “other than,” jamie this time, I’ll have to go with Malisandre.  I was really concerned with what they were doing with her back in Season 2, and the whole cult thing is STILL really drab and over done to me, but I feel like I’m starting to understand and enjoy her parts a bit more.  I just want Stannis to die is all.  Complicated feeling that that is.

  • my anti otp

Uhhhhhhhhhhh……Jeoffry/Anyone? Cersei/Jamie? 

Sailor Moon (because you totally saw that one coming :P )

NOT AT ALL

  • my favorite female character

Rei.  Rei, rei, rei,rei,rei,rei,rei,rei….are we really questioning this?  Without a doubt Rei, though this is one fandom in which it is HORRENDOUSLY HARD to pick from there’s so many.

  • my favorite male character

Y’know…I’d say Jadeite, but thing is that I love him for the fanon of him.  There isn’t enough canon in any SM series that’s consistent enough to really give him or any of the shitennou a set personality.  I’m actually not sure I have a favorite male character because SM is actually lacking in this department.  I love Mamo but…eh.  The girls just overshadow him.

  • my favorite book/season/etc

I guess it’s kind of odd that my favorite Sailor Moon arc is the Doom Tree, from the anime, given that I tend to prefer the Manga as a whole, PGSM second, and the anime last.  But there’s something about Allen and Anne, and the whole Moonlight Knight scenario that really just gets to me.  I loved that whole arc and really want to see it come back in the new incarnation (assuming it actually gets done at all)

  • my favorite episode (if its a tv show)

Oh lord.  I think my all time favorite is actually from the dub version. XD Episode 30 “A crystal clear destiny,” the episode where Serena reveals herself as sailor moon to Darien, he gets captured by the Dark Kingdom, etc.  And a lot of that love probably stems from nostalgia. I *sobbed*, OK?  I know “my only love” by heart and it makes me tear up every time i hear it.

  • my favorite cast member

I think I already answered this. XD

  • my favorite ship

Rei/Jadeite forever!!

  • a character I’d die defending

Beryl and Chibi Usa.  yeah i’m serious. (Which is amazing because I once vehemently hated both)

  • a character I just can’t sympathize with

Diamond.  No no no, NO NO NO NO, no nope noppers nope all aboard the train to NOPEville.  He’s a rapist scumbag and NO.

  • a character I grew to love

Beryl.  Much more to her Manga self, which did at least have the explanation of who she is and why.  But I think some of this might be because of my fanon version of her which just….I don’t know man, ok, i just love Beryl.

  • my anti otp

Besides Usagi-Serenity/Diamond?  Chibi Usa/Helios.  I don’t care how many poorly thought out time travel excuses people make up, it’s pedophilia pure a simple. 

maisiewilliams:

how about we do that thing where you give me a show/movie/fandom and I’ll tell you:

  • my favorite female character
  • my favorite male character
  • my favorite book/season/etc
  • my favorite episode (if its a tv show)
  • my favorite cast member
  • my favorite ship
  • a character I’d die defending
  • a character I just can’t sympathize with
  • a character I grew to love
  • my anti otp

and, knowing me, I’ll probably explain why
