Monday: Fluff/Schmoop

Hello all. sycophantastic here, your guest host for the week. I'm real happy to be back & I'm sure it's gonna be just as fun as last time. :)

As I think most of us are aware, this isn't just any old Monday. In case you've forgotten about February 14th, here's a reminder - Happy Valentine's Day! Given the occasion, I figured we'd start with the theme of Fluff/Schmoop. Feel like something light-hearted? Something full of True Love™? A first date? A first kiss? Today's the day! Anything fun & sweet is what we're going for.

Please keep these rules in mind:
  • Only three prompts for the same fandom & only five prompts in a row (though if one of your prompts is filled, you can prompt again).
  • No spoilers in your prompts for at least a week after the airdate/release.
  • Warn for any spoilers for your fic in bold and leave at least three spaces before the text.
Prompt formatting examples (because proper formatting for the code monkeys is good manners):
  • Supernatural, Dean/Castiel, How to Woo Dean Winchester (Hunter, Righteous Man, Occasional Assbutt) by Castiel
  • Hawaii Five-0, Steve/Danny + Chin + Kono, Danny gives everyone on the team a home-made red-&-pink-construction-paper Valentine
  • Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, he's not sure why Arthur brought him (& only him) along on this "quest"... or why Arthur brought a blanket & a basket full of food
Nothing grab your interest? That's alright, there are plenty of Lonely Prompts out there. Feel free to check 'em out.

And that's your cue. Have at it!

Gifts: John/Cam, Sending Valentine's Day gifts through the gate.
It's not like they can be overt, and it's partially a pain in the ass, partially fun. The first year that John's in Atlantis, of course, there was nothing, because of that whole cut-off-from-Earth thing, but the second year, Cam sends through a football, and when he gets back to his office, there's a box with a perfect sphere in it, made of light blue metal. He can't get it to turn on with his gene and he isn't about to let the scientists at it, so he uses it as a decoration in his office.

The third year John's in Atlantis, Cam sends him a book about Doug Flutie with the third chapter torn out, carefully replaced with letters Cam's been writing him. John sends a book that Cam can't read at all - and Jackson's seen it, says he's never seen the language, and Cam's pretty sure he'd kill to get his hands on it. He doesn't say anything about the book to anyone else, just sets it on his bookshelf between a manual on proper report-writing and something that Vala picked up on P9T-935 that's brown and yellow and orange.

The fourth year, Cam sends John socks, because John's that guy who's always cold but would never say anything. John sends him a metal hoop, about three inches in diameter, the purpose of which Cam cannot figure at all.

The fifth year, Cam's just getting ready to send his gift through - he'd figured out how to get one of Momma's pies fresh and packaged and ready to send - but the Gate opens from the other side first, and Cam's expecting something else he can't explain, maybe a leather string tied to a rock or something, but instead John steps through the Gate, smiling like the sun.

Cam just holds out the box with the pie in it stupidly, watching as John walks over and takes it from him and peeks inside. His smile broadens and he tugs on Cam's hand. "Your office," he orders, "let's go," and Cam follows him down the hallway.

When they're halfway through the pie - honey apple, one of Momma's specialties, and it's always been John's favorite - John stops and opens a pocket in his tac vest. He pulls out a thin cord, pale blue, and reaches for Cam's wrist, where he wraps it again and again and again until it's nearly an inch wide, and when he tucks the edges away it's seamless, almost like a second skin. Cam rolls his wrist experimentally, and the thing moves right along with him, shifting and stretching as it needs.

"Cool," Cam says, smiling. John grins and tugs a little at the wristband he always wears, and Cam sees a quick flash of metallic blue before the black slides back into place. "Gotta ask you, though. What's with the other stuff?"

John gives him a blank look and then starts to laugh. "I don't even know," he says, looking down at the pie box. "We could never get the ball to turn on, nobody can translate that book, and the ring-thing from last year was sitting in my desk when I remembered I had to send you something. This is the first real present sort of thing I've found for you."

"Garbage?" Cam clarifies, wondering if he should be mad, because he's really just amused. "You've been sending me - I've been keeping your garbage for years?"

"It's the thought that counts?" John tries, and Cam bursts into laughter, because really, what else is there to do?

"You're something else," he says, and John smiles.

Thanks! Also, Cam keeping the garbage because it might be significant and he just doesn't know... :)
