Thursday: Heroism

Hello, everyone. I’m gehayi and today's theme is heroism. Prompts can involve any noble, courageous or heroic action, choice or situation. It doesn't have to be dramatic--as the saying goes, not all heroes wear capes--but it must involve courage of some sort (physical, mental, emotional, social, political, spiritual, etc.).

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 Hunger Games (book series or movie series), any +/ any, the first rebellion is the one that changes you the most
Magnus Chase series - Rick Riordan, Samirah al-Abbas + Alex Fierro, heroism where you least expect it
Marvel Champions, Kamala Khan +/any other Champion, standing up for what you believe

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.

She watches the sun
She watches the sun
Another day trapped
Hoping waiting wishing

Another day wanting

She watches the moon
And the stars
And the birds

She imagines freedom
Though she doesn’t know the word

She watches the sun
She watches the moon
She counts the turns

She is too high to survive a jump
The wall is too shear to grip

She watches the sun
She watches the moon
She counts the turns

Shirts skirts trousers
Hair so long it aches
A dozen knots to keep it all in place

why did you not wait?
A scoff
i waited long enough

fill, DC TV

"He died a hero," Ray says, "and he'd hate to be remembered like that." They all chuckle, just a little, except for Mick. Mick hasn't said a thing since he woke up with Snart's gun strapped to his arm and Snart's ring in his pocket.

Snart destroyed the Oculus, releasing Time itself, but he only did it because Mick took Ray's place. Mick can't remember why he chose to take Ray's place, and if he'd known it would cost Snart--

And then there's Snart in his head, and a Snart stolen from the timeline, and Mick isn't sure what's real and what's not, but he's always chosen Snart, since that punkass kid nearly got himself kid his first day in juvie, and things just keep going from bad to worse, and Mick wants to burn everything down because Snart is still dead.

Mick's never once considered himself a hero. Never wanted to be. But he remembers how Snart looked at him, those early days in juvie, and after Mick salvaged their first job once it went bad, and every time Mick defended him in those early years.

He didn't realize 'til Snart was gone, but a hero can be a bad guy sometimes. (Besides, it's all a matter of perspective anyway.)

Someone, somewhere, fucked up the timeline again and Mick watches Julius fucking Caesar ride away on the beach, but that's Mick's problem anymore. He's done his penance, looking after these idiots Snart considered his team, but for all their fights, all their rage, all those months they went their separate ways, Mick never stopped calling Snart his partner.

Mick's a thief. An arsonist, a thug. The best hunter the Time Masters had. Part of the Waverider's crew.

He watches Julius fucking Caesar ride away. A bad guy would steal a timeship and leave this crew behind. A hero would try to save their partner no matter what.

Well, then. The Vanishing Point is outside of time, and he's spent dozens of nights awake spinning hypotheticals. Dozens of years hunting through time, knowledge accumulating in the back of his mind.

When he was 17 years old, he stole the best guy he'll ever know, and however old he is now, he's not letting go.
