TUESDAY - COLLECTING

Today's theme is going to be Collecting, so you might want to write about characters gathering and coming together, about collecting items or memories, about go somewhere to retrieve other characters, about collecting on a debt or a promise, about a character's need to collect his/her emotions. 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:

X-Files, Mulder/Scully, You have over one hundred what?
LOTRips, Sean/Viggo, too much to drink
24/James Bond, Jack Bauer/Bond, You owe me.

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!!!

Anniversary
"Teyla," John said, sneaking into her quarters, "you've got to help me."

Teyla looked up from where she was meditating took a moment to assess the situation. John did not look frightened, angry, or battle-ready, and there had been no hint of trouble over the radio. Rather, he looked... guilty. Shifty, perhaps.

"Help you with what?"

"You need to hide me," John said, "and help me find a gift. Something artistic, maybe. Or would that seem too trite? It should be rare, too - say, rare enough that you could reasonably expect an unexpected delay."

"I... see."

"Great."

"Actually, no, I do not. Perhaps you should explain whom this gift is for, and what the occasion for."

"Lorne. Evan. Anniversary."

"Perhaps he would like a gift of verbs," Teyla suggested.

John scowled at her. "Hah hah. That's hilarious. Seriously, I need one, like, now. Or better yet, last Friday. Otherwise he's going to kill me."

"I doubt that very much, John."

"No, I'm serious! I completely forgot about it! And you know him, he's all about calendars and charts and numbers, he takes this sort of thing seriously. He's been stalking me all day, probably just waiting for me to slip up and admit it. Then, bam, he's going blow me head off and blame alien mind-control."

"I find that unlikely as well."

Just then the door chimed. John rapidly waved his hands in a warding gesture, and when she called out for whoever was there to come it, he dove behind her bed and landed with a heavy thud.

"Afternoon, Teyla," Evan said as he came it. "You haven't seen Colonel Sheppard, have you?"

"Not recently, no," she said.

"Damn. Nygaard said she saw him come this way, but he must have been going somewhere else. If you see him, tell him I need to talk to him."

"About what?"

"I've got some paperwork he's supposed to sign off on. It's weird, he's usually on top of this sort of thing, but he hasn't come near our offices in a couple days. If I don't get this by tonight's databurst, Quartaro might find himself stuck at second lieutenant for the rest of his life."

"I'm sure he will turn up shortly. By the way, how was your anniversary?"

Evan frowned. "Anniversary?"

"I thought it was last Friday. Was I incorrect?"

"Yeah, it's next week." Evan pulled out a PDA and tapped it before showing it to her. "See? Next Friday."

"I must have been mistaken. My apologies."

"No problem. Sorry to have bothered you, I've got to get back to hunting down my CO."

"Good luck."

Once Evan was gone, John raised his head above the bed. He had an impressive bruise on his head. "Okay, so maybe I was wrong."

"So you were. When we visit Tanara tomorrow, we shall visit the market and find a suitable gift."

"Thanks."

"It is no problem."
