Monday is for Sad Songs

Hello, everyone. I’m untldeathtakeme and will hosting this week. I've got a week of music related themes this week and we're starting with sad music. Prompts can be sad lyrics, sad song titles or just a character listening to music that's making them sad.

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...

+Doctor Who(New who), The Doctor+/Any
"No matter how I'd scream I couldn’t wake the dead
So I sing it to the night and to the moonlight instead"

(Finn Andrews, The Spirit in the Flame>

+ MCU, Stephen Strange/Tony Stark, (post Endgame)
"There's no you and me
This impossible year
Only heartache and heartbreak
And gin made of tears
The bitter pill I swallow . . ."

(Panic at the Disco, This Impossible Year)

Any, Any/Any
"I don't love you I'm just passing the time
You could love me if I knew how to lie
But who could love me?
I am out of my mind"

(Panic at the Disco, She Had the World)

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 2019 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.

Please consider taking a week and hosting the community!

author's choice, any,
I'm only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains

(Garbage, "Only Happy When It Rains")

author's choice, any + or / any, quickly changing the radio station in the car as soon as they hear two notes of a song that's linked to a sad memory for one (or both) of them

author's choice, any, they can't understand the lyrics, but they can understand the longing and regret in the singer's voice

Supernatural, dean winchester & john winchester, dance with my father by luthor vandross
Sep. 24th, 2019 11:54 pm (UTC)
Fill - Supernatural, Dean and John - 300 word drabble
It’s not the dancing Dean wishes he did with his father, because they have never danced together before to Dean’s knowledge, not even when he was a little tot and Sam was barely born, but instead he misses the last chance, the longing of one more chance to do something – anything, with his father before he was killed by the deal made with yellow eyes. His soul for Dean’s life.

It’s the longing and what if’s that get to Dean, to the point where he even starts to wonder what if they had one last dance. Neither of them are the dancing type, with John being a military man, but what if they could have one more chance at a normal life, what if there was a reality where Mary never died and they were the dancing type of family, where Dean would get up on John’s feet and John would move him to a dance that a son and father could share together.

There where nights when Dean would listen outside the motel bathroom, where John would cry for Mary in his drunken stupor. Dean would pray even more than John, even thought he didn’t believe, to a God that he’d beg to send his father the only woman he had ever loved.

Every night Dean falls asleep and dreams, thinks about and dreams about, as he wonders what a normal life would be like. A fantasy he let’s himself have, a way of coping with the nightmares of when he closes his eyes, allowing himself a fantasy instead of a bad dream that is his life. That is a hunter’s life.

Although, looking to Sam beside him, laying asleep in his own single bed, Dean knows it’s not all bad, his reality at least had Sam in it.

any, any,
How does it feel to be a loser
How does it feel to be a hack
A lovesick self-abuser
But now I'll never be back
How does it feel to be rejected
The way I was so many nights
Pretending not to hear me whisper
I love you's by your side

"Loser" by Emily Kinney
