Drabbles?

Hi, I'm BORED STUPID. I can't manage being upright for more than an hour at a stretch before I go "...lying down now" (yay, side effects) and need to be distracted, especially since the Magic 5% of common sense that saves me from being a complete idiot is telling me I need to stay home tomorrow (I went out to buy groceries, and it was a MISTAKE; I should have ordered another pizza and had the food come to me).

So! Because I can't manage anything that requires "upright" and all of my big fic projects require more thinking than me headachey brain (yay, side effects) can manage but I'm also, yeah, BORED STUPID, one comment drabbles! (I have a laptop, which is why I'm online at all--it goes into the bed with me. :D )

Give me a prompt and I'll write a one-comment drabble.* Any fandom or 'verse I've written for is OK (I'll even entertain crossovers XD ). It will ONLY be one comment, though, even if I have to beat it with a stick.

So, yeah. Give me something to amuse myself with. I will also cheerfully accept drabbles people write for me, because yeah, I am down for the count.

* Until I get tired and have to stop. Which may be at any moment.

"plotcthulhu/Jou's-brain OTP"...truer words were never spoken. XD;;;

And so you know, that prompt ties in horribly with the awful, bad, terrible plot that Puppyverse grew yesterday, so I'm setting aside what my brain wants to do with it because it would be horribly, horribly spoiler for the horrible, awful, bad thing that happens late in Puppyverse. And I'm going to go write it into Puppyverse right now, once I do this.

So! Something completely different!

"Oh, man," Kunsel said, shaking. "I'd heard rumors that Sephiroth had hay fever, but oh man."

Zack grinned. "OH, no frickin' way. Sephiroth? The Sephiroth?!"

Kunsel nodded, still looking shellshocked. "He's allergic to some Wutai plant, and some idiot used it for interior decorating. Oh, gods, I thought I was gonna...hey..." Kunsel said, smiling suddenly. "You ought to see this to believe it, man."

"I GOTTA see this," Zack said. "But I haven't seen Sephiroth in three days!"

"He's been in his quarters, that's why. But there's still pollen floating around. He said he's not coming out until it's been taken care of, so I got st...uh, they asked me to take his paperwork to him."

"Oh, man. What's he look like?!"

"Wanna see for yourself?" Kunsel said, getting a sly grin on his face. "I'm supposed to go pick up the paperwork in an hour, but I could let you go in my place?"

"Really? Thanks! 'Cause I have GOT to see this!" Zack said.

"No problems," Kunsel said. "Seelaterbye!" he said quickly, and took off for the elevators.

--

"Combin," a voice said thickly, and Zack's eyes widened. There was no way that was Sephiroth.

He went in and found Sephiroth sitting at his desk in his quarters, surrounded by piles of both paperwork and used tissues.

"Yesh, Lieudendan?" he said, then scowled, and all Zack could do was stare open-mouthed and the great war hero Sephiroth, who was currently watery-eyed and sniffling.

"Oh, man, you've got it bad," Zack said, shaking his head.

The look Sephiroth gave him would have been terrifying any other time, but now it was just kinda...pathetic. "I amb aware ob dat, lieudendan. Why ah yoo ere?"

"You ought to be in bed or something," Zack said, shaking his head.

Sephiroth gritted his teeth. "Whut do oo wand?" he said thickly, and then his eye twitched.

"I came to pick up the paperwork Kunsel delivered."

"Oh," Sephiroth said, and then blinked. "Dat's...ah," he said, and sniffled. Then scowled, and muttered something darkly under his breath about 'cursed Wutai swamp', or something; Zack had no idea because Sephiroth was so stuffed up. "Here," Sephiroth snarled, and picked up a pile of folders. "Dow geddout."

"What?" Zack said, trying to parse that.

Sephiroth grabbed a tissue, blew his nose viciously, and tried again. "Leabe!" he snapped grouchily, and Zack felt his lips tugging up into a grin.

"Well, somebody's grouchy when they're sick," he said, and yelped when a Fire spell went off by his head.
Oh my god, poor Seph. XD Can't he be grouchy in peace?
*snicker* There is ONE flowering plant on the planet he's allergic to, and after the first spring he was in Wutai, to avoid it he refuses to be posted in Wutai for a full two months, and then, just when he thinks he's safe, some moron thinks that plant is pretty and puts it ALL OVER SHINRA TOWER. >XDDDDD Poor guy is not getting a break, and now he's got Zack popping up and reminding him of his misery. >XDDDD
I'm amazed Zack's still in one piece. XD
Well, Seph is sick. >XD
Awww, poor Sephy. :D
Hee hee--right now, Seph totally hates his life.

But not as much as he hates "that Wutai weed" and the person who placed them in the flower pots on every hallway in the ShinRa building. The person whose name is being withheld from him no matter how much he threatens.
(supplies him with lots and lots of hot tea and orange juice) oh man, I have SO been there. And who wants to lay odds on the idea that it was Reno who ever so helpfully decorated the place? *headdesk*

I continue to be amused by my ability to drop plotcthulhus on you even when I'm not trying! XD Looking forward to finding out what it was the prompt set off about puppyverse too. (Taking puppy to the vet, maybe? hmmm...)
LOL, actually, it was a total accident. Seph--and everyone in the higher ups--kept it very secret that he was horribly allergic to "that damned Wutai weed" because the last thing they needed was the Wutai finding out, and doing their genius thing with plants and poisons and finding a way to take out their superSOLDIER. To the point where they made sure not to ever assign him to anything in Wutai (or the area where that plant grows) for a certain two months of the year.

Problem is, it was kept so secret that no one outside of a few people knew, so when the decorator in charge of replacing the plants for the spring was looking for nice ones, they had no idea that that one particular plant was verboten. And so now Seph is suffering in his room at hating life while the entire building is being scrubbed top to bottom and the plants removed at lightening speed. >XD

And ohhh, you say that now, but you don't actually want to know. Truuuuust me. ^^;; Let's just say Genesis is involved.
yeah, so the problem with that 'security by obscurity' thing rears its ugly head again! XD poor schmuck. Both of them actually. I can entirely see Shinra having the Turks execute the interior designer who made the selection just to make sure the Wutaians never, EVER find out the truth. Either that or toss him/her to Hojo, which might well be worse.

...whimper. Poor puppy...
Yeah, they very well might (which would also ensure Reno never, ever thinks it's a good idea to pull that particular prank--he happens to like breathing, after all.) ^^;;

And oh, gods, throwing him to Hojo. D: The Turks would be the quicker option.

I should also point out this is post-Hojo+Jenova!Genesis, and so his sanity has gone somewhere over the rainbow (and in a similar and yet completely different way from Sephiroth--Seph wanted to destroy the entire world; Genesis is a lot more specific). All of the poor puppies are going to need a lot of recuperating.
