Monday: Pre-Series

Hi, everybody! I'm aurilly and I'll be your guest hostess for the week. *waves*

To get started, let's go back even before the start. Today's theme is pre-series. What were characters like before all the madness began? If your favorite pairing only met during the run of the show, what about an AU in which they met ages before? Sorry, but this is a NO RPS day (don't worry, it's the only one of the week).

Please use the following formats (the second is for crossovers) in order to help out our hard-working codemonkeys:
Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Fandom1/Fandom2, Pairing, Prompt

A couple of examples:
Lost, Sun/Penny, bored during daddy's golf game
Heroes/Ugly Betty, Nathan/Daniel, a wager
 
Please remember to only leave one prompt per comment and to space out your prompts throughout the day so as not to overload any one page. 

If nothing here tickles your fancy, take a gander at the Lonely Prompts index.

He feels a lot of things as he makes his reluctant retreat with the fruits of his labor, trying not to think about what's about to happen between Captain Hammer and the object of his affections -- anger, resentment, jealousy, frustration.

What no one would guess that he feels is this intense sense of betrayal.

What no one could know is that once, a lifetime ago -- Dr. Horrible and Captain Hammer were friends.

He remembers picking himself up off the ground, far less bruised and battered than he'd expected to be, as the bigger boys who'd intended on beating the crap out of him fled. He'd flinched, unsure what to expect, as the stranger had reached down a hand and helped him to his feet again.

"Don't worry. I'll protect you."

The open offer of friendship startled him, and Billy found himself struck with a sense of hope -- thinking that maybe there actually were kind, decent people in the world.

But time brought an end to that illusion.

Captain Hammer actually started out as genuine hero, but too much attention and praise and fawning fans eventually got to his head, until he forgot about his former friends -- including Billy -- and moved on to what he considered to be more important things.

His throat and head throbbing from the abuse Hammer's just dealt out, Billy fights back a bitter wave of disgusted nausea as he remembers what once was, and vows never to put himself in a position to be betrayed like that again.

I love this, it makes sense. It's a perfect backstory for Billy and Hammer. Thankyou

well i was thinking that it's typical in this sort of story -- comic book/superhero type story -- that the villain and the hero were many times once friends, separated by circumstance, tragedy, etc -- and wouldn't it be cool if these two had that sort of a history?

thanx, love, i'm so glad you liked it :) *Hugs*
