Wednesday, 10/13/2010 - Dawn

Good morning, y'all! My name is jlsigman, and I'm your guest hostess for the week who is up way too early this morning thanks to a 6 month old kitten who loves the prompt. :-p

Today's prompt is: dawn. That wonderful time before the sun comes up. That terrible time when the night ends. Which way is it seen?

As always, please keep the following few rules in mind:
- No more than five prompts in a row, and no more than three per fandom. Remember, as soon as someone takes on one of your prompts, you can pop another.
- No spoilers in your prompts for at least seven days after air; if there are spoilers in your fic, warn in bold in the subject line and leave at least three spaces.
- As a former codeslinger, I beg you to please do be kind to our codemonkeys and format your prompts correctly, like so:

Any, any/any, Now started another long day
Final Fantasy XIII, Snow/Serah, Their first dawn together on Pulse
Godspeaker trilogy, Rhian/Alasdair, The dawn hid the damage from the invasion

Dawson's Creek, Pacey/Joey, it's hard to appreciate the sunrise when you're awake because your baby won't sleep.

"Look at that sunrise, Joe, isn't it beautiful? You can't get a sunrise like that outside of Capeside," Pacey whispered as he slipped behind his wife, his arms coming up automatically to embrace her and the tiny pink bundle in her arms.

"Uggg," Joey groaned softly, acutely aware of the dangers of speaking too loudly with their daughter so freshly asleep. "Is that what that bright light is? I thought maybe I was hallucinating."

Pacey nosed gently at the side of Joey's neck, brushing away her hair with one hand to press a kiss at her exposed collar bone. "Look at my girls, all golden in the sunlight."

Joey cast him a glare, somewhat dampened by the dark circles under her eyes. "Your daughter just had to go and be a night person like you, didn't she?"

Pacey laughed quietly. "Let's not go blaming this one on me. I remember more than one late night on the True Love that was most certainly not of my doing."

Joey smiled grudgingly at that. "That was different. I was young and..."

"In love?" Pacey finished hopefully.

"Stupid," Joey corrected, but her smile and the small kiss she pressed to Pacey's lips softened the blow.

In her arms, the baby stirred without waking, and Joey sighed. "One day I will appreciate sunrises again, when I can view them on the proper side of sleep." She frowned, "or at least when I can sleep after appreciating it. Or something. I'm so tired I'm not making sense anymore."

Gently, Pacey turned Joey to face him and scooped his daughter into his arms. "I got the Princess. You go catch a few more hours of beauty sleep."

"Beauty sleep?"

"Wholly unnecessary for someone aa beautiful as you of course," Pacey added.

"You're not as charming as you think you are," Joey said through a yawn.

"Oh yes I am." Pacey gave her a chaste kiss and pushed Joey in the direction of the back door. "Go, sleep."

"Yes, sir," Joey said with mock annoyance.

Joey was falling asleep almost before her head hit the pillow. But before sleep claimed her Pacey's voice drifted in through the window, singing soft and happy - "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine." - and Joey fell asleep smiling.

Re: Fluffy fill
Aww, thank you for this. Pacey was so sweet here and I love him singing to their daughter. I could believe Joey being so tired and I like how much of a strong partnership you gave them, lovely.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I couldn't resist a chance to peek into their happily ever after.

Re: Fluffy fill
hee! Another fandom I've never written before, but you're welcome to throw bunnies at either. No promises though.
