Well, since issuing this challenge, I have had a few ideas. I love these things to stretch creativity. The original with the word hero has enlongated itself and will not be ready in time. (It is called Far From Hero and set in a historic time.) And the word legends from Gundam Wing centering around Middie and Trowa has become a long fic as well (entitled Legends of Past, I have ideas for this, but need to do a bit of research.)
And now onto what I have done!
Anime: Scrapped Princess
Warnings: Many allusions to the anime
Pacifica looked at the chocolate iced cake. It was in the shape of an egg and looked delicious. Reaching a plump finger towards the cake, she giggled nervously. “Pacifica.”
She turned to see her brother, Shannon. “What, big brother?”
He picked her up and carried her into the other room. Pacifica laughed as she saw her sister: Raquel was covered in flour. “Hello, Pacifica. Are you ready to turn six?”
“Shannon, bring Pacifica back out here. Raquel, join us,” their father called.
The family gathered around the table and their father lit the six pink candles. Pacifica looked at the dancing lights in astonishment as they cast a warm glow around the room.
Pacifica shook her head. The memory was vivid and she recalled wanting to see a bigger flame. But she wished to take it back. A village but a mile away was burning and people were screaming. “Pacifica, are you ready to turn 16?” she asked herself.
And then we have:
All the Little Things
Anime: Full Metal Alchemist
Warnings: There may be some allusions to spoilers...
Riza sighed, the day catching up to her. She lay down on her bed, not caring to undress. “Mustang, you better be worth it,” She mumbled at the ceiling.
Sleep came to her easily, but her mind couldn’t stop thinking about him. Her dreams showed him unconscious and covered in blood that night not so long ago. Only this time she couldn’t save him, this time she was powerless. Then came their time together. He was still too weak to be on his own, but he was used to her help now. Together, anything was simple, enjoyable.
A noise at her door drew her out of her dreams. She opened her eyes, sat up, and there he was. He looked almost like Black Hayate in the way he cast his glance at her. “Can I have a glass of water?”
Riza stared at him, a look of astonishment and annoyance on her face. “Do you know what time it is?”
She gave in to a smile because she knew she couldn’t say no to him. “Come on, let’s get that water, Mustang.”
Anime: Gundam Wing
Unique and glistening
Gracefully she descends
Pure and Naive
She captivates all.
Heero gazed at Relena as she appeared. She was dressed in a white gown that moved with each step down the stairs. Her face was alight in a blissful glow. His breath was drawn from him as she approached. The smile they shared was full of love and they joined hands. This was it: soldier and maiden. Turning their attention to the minister they prepared for life anew. They wouldn’t look back. “Dearly beloved...”
I hope you enjoyed them!
Our next challenge, (with some new ideas) should be out about Jan 20th.
Until Next time,
