Tuesday - Angels & Demons

Hey guys! I'm just pinch hitting for today (don't mean to step on your toes, justapieceofme, but we needed something up!) so I'm stealing a good idea from the original month of comment porn.

So the theme for today is Angels & Demons. This can be literal, utilizing characters that are actually (or have been made into actual) angels and demons. It can be a step sideways, where a character has wings, or horns and a tail. Have something more metaphorical? Go for it!

When leaving prompts, please remember to be kind to your friendly neighborhood Code Monkeys and format your prompts appropriately!

Examples:
RPS, winged!Christian Kane/Steve Carlson, fingertips

Supernatural/Leverage, demon!Dean Winchester/Eliot Spencer, a dark alley



Nothing piquing your interest? Please check out the list of Lonely Prompts! (And remember boys and girls, this weekend will be the first Lonely Prompts contest, so stay tuned!)

"the weight of past history"
It happens, of course. And, as almost everyone he's ever met has told him, it would have been a lot worse if the amputation hadn't been necessary when he was a baby, if he'd remembered having them, or even worse, remembered what it felt like to use them.

People mean well, so John nods and trots out the pained little smile he's rehearsed for such occasions and tries not to remember the sight of his mother's wings, all soft amber colored feathers, spread against the bright blue California sky as she soared.

(He likes Rodney because Rodney's attempt at offering sympathy was something along the lines of: "well that sucks pretty hard. Here, I need you to activate this Ancient thing so I can tell if it's a nightlight or a grow lamp." And if he'd reached back and surreptitiously stroked the dull bronze leather of his own wings, well that was understandable and was, as John was to learn, more a nervous habit than anything else.)

Most of John's men don't have wings--very few winged folk join up and those that do are rarely assigned to combat units--and that makes things a little easier, in spite of the fact that a disproportionate number of the scientists are winged.

And then there's Ronon. He tells John that, unlike the Athosians, wings were very uncommon among the Satedans. He tells John that most winged Satedans joined religious or scholarly orders and had very little to do with the rest of the population.

When, at night, John wakes from dreams of flight, Ronon holds him close and then turns him over to brush his lips against John's scars before pressing into him and bringing him back into the now and the warm, safe haven of their rooms.

It's not a quid pro quo, John thinks on the night when he does the same for Ronon, but it's more than a coincidence, he knows, that both of them carry the visible signs of their pasts in the same place.

[note: this could be said to take place in an RPS AU darkrosetiger and I came up with while driving from Boston, MA to Sacramento, CA. In this AU about 10% of Earth's population are born with wings.]

Loved this a lot! (Even if the thought of John dreaming of flight gave me that kicked-in-the-chest-feeling.) I wish you'd find the time to write this AU, it sounds fascinating.
