Friday: The Final Frontier

Hello, everyone. I’m oh_mcgee and today's theme is space. Prompts can be anything having to do with space. Fandoms in space, characters stargazing together, space AUs, fandom fusions, etc. You know what to do.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey/Finn/Poe, curtain fic
Green Lantern (comics), Hal Jordan/Bruce Wayne, 5 Ways Bruce distracts Hal enough to get his ring from him
Green Lantern (comics), Hal Jordan/Thaal Sinestro, space road trip

We are now using AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

Any, Any, Stranded in space with limited oxygen

Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, Peter Grodin, Alana Dumais. NASA.
Thing was, this wasn't how it should have gone.

If the station decompressed, if it was explosive, then they should have all met a quick demise with little to no warning. No pain, no fear, no final minutes unable to tell anyone in Houston that they were alive, they were here.

Still breathing. For the time being.

Peter resented it, truly he did.

He and Alana had been in their suits, having just returned from an EVA, when the fire ignited, all the way at the far end of ARCTURUS, and had only needed to re-initiate the oxygen tanks to keep themselves safe while the station rocked, rolled, and burned.

Now they had a terrifying front seat as the part of ARCTURUS that hadn't immediately fallen back toward the planet began to destabilize, slowly moving toward atmo, all while they ran down their air.

Thankfully, the latter would happen for them before the former.

“Are you scared, Peter?” Dumais asked, looking out at the vast open space around them.

He didn't need to ask what she meant; he took a minute to think about it, still, then shook his head and admitted, voice soft over the radio, “No. I'm not scared. Look at that,” he nodded toward the space ahead of them, “Could I have a more beautiful view at this moment?”

Alana gave him a small, half-broken smile. “I suppose there is that.”

Drawing her close with an arm, settling it across her bulked shoulders, he added, “It will be like going to asleep...” and, “As the oxygen runs down, we'll just get tired from the CO2 recirculating into the system and...”

“Sleep.”

“Yes.”

“Peaceful.”

“Peaceful.”

Tears tracked down her cheeks, as she murmured once more, “Peaceful,” and the radio's battery ran out.

OMG! ::heart crumbles into dust:: Terrible. And beautiful. And terrible. And so well done.

Excuse me, now, while I go sit in the corner.

Thank you, hun. I'd been looking at this prompt and wanting to fill it for a while, but wasn't sure how super angsty I should go. <3

Oh no. Am weeping on my couch. That's so horrible. But so well-written. Way to pack a punch.

Thank you. *hands over the tissues* I really did put them in a terrible position, didn't I?

Admittedly, I almost left that little bit of ARCTURUS up there with the two of them in the suits, but I felt that was a little too macabre.
