TUESDAY - COLLECTING

Today's theme is going to be Collecting, so you might want to write about characters gathering and coming together, about collecting items or memories, about go somewhere to retrieve other characters, about collecting on a debt or a promise, about a character's need to collect his/her emotions. Be as literal or as creative as you like. Any fandom, any pairing.

Please follow the following formats (the second is for crossovers) in your requests in order to help the code-monkeys:

Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Fandom1/Fandom2, Pairing, Prompt

Some examples might be:

X-Files, Mulder/Scully, You have over one hundred what?
LOTRips, Sean/Viggo, too much to drink
24/James Bond, Jack Bauer/Bond, You owe me.

You may leave as many prompts as you'd like as long as they're one prompt per comment, and you can write in response to your own prompts.

If you don't see any prompts today that wake up your muses, then please check out the Lonely Prompts index for inspiration.

Most of all, have fun!!!

Kelly had loved boats, from the very first time she had seen one, throwing open pudgy baby hands to the ocean, trying to pull the colourful floating things towards her.

They had collected them for her, in a mobile, in miniature scale hunched inside glass bottles high on a shelf, toys and beauty and she had grown up loving them.

She was wearing them in her hair when she died, he found them missing from her jewellery box (Full of plastic and bright colours and broken clasps) when he returned to a house full of ghosts.

He built a boat to please her, as perfect as she was and collecting the sweat and blood he would have put into her.

He named her Kelly, in black letters on pale wood, and brought lovers to be judged against her, some passed, most failed.

He would take her to the water one day so she could see her beloved boats again, but in time, when she was old enough, a father had a right to hold onto his little girl for a little longer.

That was wonderful and heart wrenching. Not to mention a great explanation for why he's so careful and loving as he builds it.

Thank you so much!

Thanks, it just kind of fell into place, apparently I was feeling thoughtful.
