MONDAY - SECRETS (AND LIES)

Hello, everyone! I'm Barbara (savageseraph), and I'll be your hostess for this week. While I will try to get the posts up at midnight, if I can't stay up that late, I'll post them around 7:30 AM (ET) before I head to work.

To start things off, our theme today is going to be Secrets (and Lies), so you might want to write about characters trying to keep things hidden, about secret desires being revealed, or about regrets for keeping things hidden. The characters don't necessarily need to be hiding from each other; they could be trying to hide from themselves. You could also write about characters being kept in the dark and about things lurking in the shadows. Be as literal or as creative as you like. Any fandom, any pairing.

Please follow the following formats (the second is for crossovers) in your requests in order to help the code-monkeys:

Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Fandom1/Fandom2, Pairing, Prompt

Some examples might be:

Underworld, Lucian/Sonja, chains
SPN, Dean/Castiel, He couldn't possibly know.
Prophecy/SPN, Lucifer/Dean, You know you really wanted it.

You may leave as many prompts as you'd like as long as they're one prompt per comment, and you can write in response to your own prompts.

If you don't see any prompts today that wake up your muses, then please check out the Lonely Prompts index for inspiration.

Most of all, have fun!!!

"Have you noticed," Cam asked while watching Costanza and Hendricks slink out the door, red-faced after discovering the storage room was already in use, "that in the last two months the number of people who know about us has roughly tripled?"

"Bullshit," John said. He hitched up his pants. "We're doing a great job at keeping this on the down-low."

Cam eyed him. "I don't think that means what you think it means."

"Whatever."

"I've just saying, more people have found out since the Ancients kicked you out than usually did in an entire year? Hell, in five years?"

"I really don't think so," John said. "You're exaggerating."

"Oh really? Let's count them. Sam, Teal'c, Daniel, Vala, McKay, Dex -"

"Teams don't count," John said.

Cam ignored him and continued. "Chuck, Banks, Doctor Weir, Stackhouse, both Winchesters, Cloneill, the bigger O'Neill, that one cook, Parrish -"

"He doesn't count either. He's Lorne's guy, he's part of the package."

"Perverted package," Cam muttered.

"What's that supposed to mean?"

"Quiet, I'm trying to count. Where was I? Oh, right. Doctor Beckett, Doctor Heightmeyer, Doctor Biro and boy, wasn't that fun? Doctor Porter, probably Sergeant Mehra by now, and maybe Captain Vega if they really did get dosed with truth drugs yesterday."

"Oh, come on," John said. "That's nothing compared to the some other times."

"I can count on two hands the people we let know before," Cam pointed out. "Noel Allison, Jenny Enfield, Tim Holland, a few others."

"Lorne."

"I thought Lorne doesn't count?"

"Well, we told him, didn't we? And there's the guys and gal at Callahan's."

"They don't count. That's just some people in a pub, they didn't really know who we were."

"Then there's the big groups," John said with a gleeful smirk. "Dave and his family. Ash. Momma and your Daddy."

"Now hold on."

"Cindy Lou and the kids, Gran'ma, Skipper and Spencer, Uncle Al, Uncle Henry, Aunt Lavinia," and John was off, rattling through the family tree like he was born a Mitchell instead of just adopted. John's ability to miraculously remember and forget names based solely on whether it benefited him at one moment or another has at turns amused and annoyed Cam. Right then he was wavering between them.

"So you see," John concluded, petering out at about three generations in all directions, "in my first visit home, we were outed to more people in about thirty minutes than we have since the Fucking Ancients kicked us out and we finally got to sleep together again. And about thirty minutes after that, a hundred more people knew by your weird Mitchell telepathy."

"They're family," Cam said with a grin and a chuckle.

John spread his hands. "So's everyone here."

"Okay, maybe you have a point," Cam admitted after a moment. "What'd you say we take this somewhere else? My knees are killing me. I think I'm too old for storage rooms."

"Office?"

"Sure, why not. We just need to lock the door."

Re: Numbers
Thanks! I'm whole-heartedly appropriating the Mitchell clan for the series I'm working on, which should make the family-centric fics I've got planned interesting (as in 'interesting times', and possibly also in "Cam's going to regret that quip he made to O'Neill about being easily replaceable by his brother or any dozen cousins").

Haha John, you smartass.

Hee!

Re: Numbers
That was hilarious. I love John's unpredictable memory for names and Cam's reaction to it. :)

Re: Numbers
Hehe. Love John's magical ability to remember or forget names based on when it suits him (and Cam totally not calling him on it).

:D

Re: Numbers
Cam's long since given up on calling him on it.

Re: Numbers
"Cloneill" >falls over laughing<

Also, only Cam would have a relative called Cindy Lou. Who? :-P

Re: Numbers
Sadly, I can't claim credit for either. eruminator coined 'Cloneill', while Cindy Lou (his sister-in-law) and the rest of the family are from the clan_mitchell shared universe. Thanks, though!

Hilarious, and I love the idea of John meeting all of Cam's relatives.

Re: Numbers
*lol* They would better ask the other question: who doesn't know yet?

Very funny!
