dies marti: Things that did happen

Back for my second day and running a bit late. Sorry about that. I'm firefox1490 and this is my second round of guest hosting here at comment_fic. Lets do this.

Today's theme is "Things that did happen but shouldn't have". Characters make choices. Choices that you as the viewer think Why the hell did you do that?

Please forget the rules:
* Three prompts per fandom, and no more than five total. If one of your prompts is filled, you may post another.
* No spoilers for new shows/seasons until at least one week after airing.
* If your fill do contains spoilers, please warn accordingly and leave enough space for people to pass by.

To help the hardworking codemonekys please format your prompts as such:

Fandom, Character, Prompt
Fandom, Character/Character, Promp

Suits; Louis Litt; He made the wrong choice in the partner's meeting.
King; Jack Benjamin; He'll always regret thinking his father loved him.
Glee; Kurt Hummel; Dalton was never where he thought he'd run to.

If nothing strikes your fancy feel free to check out the lonely prompts, they always need a bit more love.

The Covenant, Caleb/Chase, Chase didn’t use at the pool

Fill -- Close Call
It’s close. Caleb is pacing him and it would be so easy to give him a little push with his power, to hold him back or throw him off course—because Chase isn’t used to losing. It would feel good, too, that amazing tingle that Using always gives him. But he doesn’t let himself cheat because he’s competitive to the bone, and damn it, he wants to know if Caleb really is better than he is.

When he reaches the wall, Caleb looks at him, he looks at Caleb, and he can’t tell who was first. They’re both breathing heavily from the exertion, and Caleb leans against the wall instead of treading water.

Caleb looks up at the rest of his quartet, who’ve been on the sidelines cheering them on. They’re all shaking their heads. “Couldn’t tell,” Pogue says, and Reid chimes in with, “Damn, he’s fast!” Tyler catches Chase’s eye and mouths, “Wow!”

“Good race, man,” Caleb tells him, extending his hand. Chase shakes it, nodding agreement.

They’re heading into the showers when Caleb says, “You may end up our free-swim guy yet.”

“That’s your event, Caleb,” Pogue protests.

“Not if he’s faster.” The thought of being replaced doesn’t seem to bother him; and Chase isn’t sure if he’s serious until he says, “I guess I’m going to have to work harder.”

“I guess we both will,” Chase retorts, and his opponent grins. On Caleb’s face, Chase sees respect and no lessening of their growing friendship.

“—with your record?” Reid is saying, but Caleb shrugs it off.

“It’s not my call, anyway—it’s up to Coach. I’m not going to stand in the way of what’s best for the team.” He says it firmly, and without ego, and suddenly the grudge Chase has been carrying seems a petty thing.

Why should he seek vengeance against these guys who are guilty of nothing more than being related to assholes three hundred years ago? The camaraderie they have that he envies—he could have that, too, if he opens up, if he shares with them the secret they have in common.

Part of him wants to go ahead with his plans, to harvest Caleb’s powers, to be even stronger than he already is. Another instinct wants to join this team-within-a-team, to have others who understand what it is to be different, more than human, constantly caught between prudence and temptation.

Chase knows he’s going to face a tough decision soon. It’s going to be close.

YES, this is so much better than canon. Thank you!

Re: Fill -- Close Call
Glad you enjoyed it. I really love the idea of Chase as the Prodigal Son of Ipswich. Btw, I *am* working on Bucky's POV for the bodyswap. I've got a few bits and an idea of where it's going, I'm just leary about posting too soon in case it peters out.

(BTW, I want to snag that Bucky icon but your note just says 'homegrown' -- is that someone's name or does it mean you made it?)

Re: Fill -- Close Call
Homegrown means I made it---it took me all of two minutes using Paint on a bigger picture---and you're certainly welcome to snag it.

I haven't done bodyswap before this, and I've never done a high school AU, but I guess that's why they say "Never say never...".

Re: Fill -- Close Call

Thank you!

I'm not sure I've ever actually done a bodyswap myself. Huh. That could be interesting.

Re: Fill -- Close Call
Oh, I wish the movie could have gone like this. Less 'good vs. evil' and more 'let's see how we all fit together'. *thumbs up*

Re: Fill -- Close Call
The ending was wide open for a sequel that could've gone either way--pity that never happened.

Thanks for commenting!

Fill #3: Brunch
Which is way, way longer than 4300 characters, so it's on my LJ.

Re: Fill #3: Brunch

I saw this and grinned for like five blocks.
