Jeudi: Sayings

Hi there! I’m dreammaidenn and this week is almost over, so today's theme is Sayings. Prompts can be any sayings, adages, proverbs, aphorisms or popular phrases you like the most. If you're looking for inspiration. Have fun!😄

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ The Boondock Saints, Connor MacManus + Murphy MacManus, Blood is thicker than water.
+ MCU, Maria Hill/Natasha Romanoff, letting their hair down
+ Merlin, Arthur Pendragon/Merlin, Good things come to those who wait

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2017 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

Not a fill
But yes! It makes me soooo crazy when people use the shortened version of the quote and get it all backwards.

Re: Not a fill
I didn't even know there was another version. I like this one a lot better. It makes way more sense.

Re: Not a fill
Most people say "blood is thicker than water" and mean that blood kin comes before non-blood kin, and every time I'm just like...nope.

As a kid, I always did wonder what the water was.

Re: Not a fill
Same. Do you know where the original quote comes from?

Fill. Stargate Multiverse, The Boys, John Sheppard + Evan Lorne. Deaged AU.
Their last name was O'Neill.

It had been for decades now and everyone was well-used to it: Elizabeth, Radek, Lorne, Cadman, Beckett... the entirety of the old guard, they regularly had to remember to declare which O'Neill they were discussing or which O'Neill they needed to talk to.

They're triplets in everyone's minds: it'd been easier to think of them that way.

(“So we're not blood related?”

“No, Rodney. You were three very different people.”

He'd glanced to the floor as John rolled his eyes and said, “Hey, we always knew we were adopted. It's not like that was hidden from us.”

And Daniel, from his place leaning against the doorjamb, smiled. “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.”

“Danny?”

He shrugged. “You're my brothers, not because we are forced to be, but because we choose to be.”

The conversation ended then and there, never to be brought up again.)

But that didn't mean their old names never came up and had the same effect as Jack or Sam using their middle names: when they were frustrated with Rodney, his colleagues called him McKay, or when Daniel's focus put him danger, they all had the urge to scold him as Dr. Jackson...

When John was disobeying orders and being stubborn, the “Goddamnit, Sheppard!” came flying out of Evan Lorne's mouth unchecked.

“Sir.”

“You know,” Lorne told him once the 'Jumper was parked and the rest of John's team was gawking at them from the doorway, “normally I apologize when I accidentally call you by the wrong name, but your mother was in command when I did it.”

“Oh.” The color drained from John's face.

“She has given me permission to do two things from now on.” Lorne cleared his throat, slapped the back of John's head, and told him, “John Patrick O'Neill, you are grounded.”

This is golden. So good! I love that moment, when the boys declare each other family. And Lorne being able to ground John is perfect. LOL!

Poor Lorne needed some way to control John. After all, O'Neill or Sheppard, we all know John doesn't trust anyone's judgement but his own. XD

I'm glad you liked it, hun!

Bwa ha ha! Grounded by Lorne! I love that!

But that bit about being brothers was so touching. Look at Rodney, sad that they're not blood-related siblings. Aww!
