Friday Free For All

So, here we are. May 1st. Where has the year gone?
But, more importantly than that, it's Friday. Which can mean only one thing... It's time for FRIDAY FREE FOR ALL!!

Yup, you got it. Anything and everything goes. Any fandom, any pairing, any crossover, any prompt.

Just make sure to be nice to this codellama and her fellow codemonkeys by leaving your prompts in the proper format

For a single fandom: Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Example: RPS, Chris/Steve, "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you"

For a crossover: Fandom/Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Example: The A-Team/Leverage, team centric, 'If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...'

Don't forget that we have a lot of lonely prompts, so if you're not being inspired today, you can always adopt one of those

It's fast and violent and desperate, and he knows this isn't about him at all. She's tied him to her bed, not caring if the scarves she's used are too tight, not caring if she hurts him as she takes the lead at a frantic pace.

Simon's been back in town, and Robin once again fell for his lines, allowed him to treat her like that girl she tries so hard not to be anymore.

And Barney's reaping the benefits -- or consequences.

At the moment he's not quite sure which it is.

At the moment of his climax, he breathes out words he's been concealing for so long, but can't quite hide in the midst of the powerful sensations that consume him.

"Robin... God... I love you..."

She freezes over him -- and his heart stops for a moment. He finally dares to open his eyes, looking up at her. There's something cold and dark in her eyes as she stares down at him in clear disbelief.

"What did you say?" she whispers.

"Nothing," he replied. "I didn't... I mean... it was nothing..." He shakes his head.

She studies his face for a moment -- and then a cold, bitter smile spreads across her lips. Her voice is soft and dangerous as she leans down over him again, her face inches from his.

"No, Barney. Go ahead. Say it again."

He hesitates, uncertain what's happening here.

"Go ahead," she urges him softly. "I want to hear you say it."

"I... I love you, Robin," he whispers at last, every ounce of his sincerity in his trembling voice. "I really do."

She nods slowly, as if confirming to herself that that's really what he said. Her smile slowly widens into something nasty and vicious, as she runs a sharp nail slowly down the side of his cheek. He turns into her touch with a soft gasp, hungering for closeness with her -- sensing the opportunity for it slipping away.

"You know why that's funny, Barney?" she whispers. "You know why that just makes me want to laugh? Because it's pointless. Pointless and pathetic. Because no one could love a pathetic... stupid... easy little slut like you!"

He flinches, stunned by the cruel words. A part of his mind is able to realize that the words are meant more for herself than for him -- but they still hurt.

He closes his eyes against her cold, piercing stare, waits as she unties him, waits until he hears her get up and walk away, laughing harshly under her breath. He stays there for a long time, listening until he hears his front door close behind her.

Only then does he allow his secret, despairing tears to fall.

I want to kill Robin. Can you hand me the knife, please?

She's so mean to poor Barney! No one deserves that! Not even Barney. Especially not Barney!

*hugs Barn-Barn*

yeah, poor barney definitely didn't deserve that... he was being honest and vulnerable with her...

but in robin's (very weak) defense, she wasn't really trying to hurt barney so much as projecting her own anger at herself... she felt like a pathetic, stupid, loser/slut for allowing simon to take advantage of her again, and she was projecting that onto barney...

still not fair, still awful... but she wasn't just rejecting him to reject him, you know?

thanx, love, glad you liked it :) *Hugs*

It's a little hard to defend her, isn't it? XD

It's just not fair of her to hurl out her own frustrations on a poor Barney who just wants her to love him for who he is. :(

I really like your writings when it comes to these two. :)

*huggles Barney*

Robin can be so cruel...*sigh*
May. 7th, 2009 05:32 pm (UTC)
yeah, in general i really don't think she is... i think sometimes she can be really careless, and i'm scared she'll hurt him without meaning to...

but in this case i wanted it to be clear that robin's really angry at herself... *she* feels like the things she was calling barney, for allowing herself to still have feelings for that jerk and letting him use her :( so she's totally projecting...

in the part of the story that isn't written here, she'd later feel just awful about it ;) hehe

Poor Barney. *hugs*

This is so angst and mean and in a good way.
May. 8th, 2009 04:44 am (UTC)
thanx so much, hon, glad you liked the angstiness here... and yeah, robin was terribly cruel, though she was in pain herself here too... she basically just projected her own pain (and her own current opinion of herself) onto him, not realizing just how deeply that would hurt him...

thanx, love, glad you liked it :)
