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.

Comments

LOL, that's pretty much the entire next chapter of Puppyverse, "Puppy Chow"--Zack deciding they should all bond over food. And whenever Cloud's birthday happens. >XD

But there are many other things Zack can decide to do, so let's run with it. >XD

It was never good, when Zack was bored.

It didn't happen very often, that much Sephiroth did know. Lt. Zack Fair had the attention span of a gnat and was often distracted by whatever shiny thing passed in front of his eyes. As such, it was usually easy to distract him when he started getting that "I've been still for five minutes and that's been four and a half minutes too long" look--throw him a new materia, send him off to clean up the mess some new recruit inevitably made, stealthily sic him on Heidigger; there were usually many things Sephiroth could do to Keep Zack Entertained before Zack came up with something to entertain himself.

Sephiroth started wracking his brain trying to think of something to set Zack off on, when he realized with a sinking feeling that Zack was no longer twitching but smiling, and he knew that meant he was doomed.

Especially since Zack grinned and said, "Be right back!" and left before Sephiroth could do more than open his mouth.

Doomed.

--

Despite his fears of impending doom, the rest of the day was oddly...quiet. Zack went off somewhere, only the gods knew where, and since there had been no explosions, screams, or Cloud showing up in a panic, Sephiroth began to relax, assuming that Angeal's puppy had either gone to the VR rooms or left the building altogether, perhaps to visit his girlfriend.

Until his PHS rang.

It rang the e-mail notification, so he picked it up instead of ignoring it, and flipped it open to read the e-mail there.

Hey, Sephiroth! Quick, come downstairs!

Zack


He raised an eyebrow. "Quick, come downstairs" never boded well. He sighed, figuring it was safer to check now rather than let Zack get antsy, and quickly saved his work and shut his computer down before starting for the door.

Then thought better of it, turned around, went back to his desk, and pulled out one of his equipped bracers.

Better to be safe than sorry, after all.

--

He got down to the first floor lobby and looked around before he saw the lieutenant, his arm slung over Cloud's shoulder and grinning. One thing Sephiroth had learned--the hard way--was that Zack touched the way that he breathed. The surest way to know where you stood with Zack Fair was to gauge how close he stood to you or how much he touched you compared to others. And in that respect, it was very obvious that Cloud Strife was someone Zack Fair cared for quite a bit. Cloud often looked over at the arm Zack would sling carelessly over his shoulder, like he wasn't entirely sure how it got there or why it was there in the first place, and it was comforting to Sephiroth to see that he was not the only one perplexed by Zack touching them. Everyone else had acted like it was so normal--or at least, Angeal had.

He suspected that he would be more...not upset, but more unsettled...by Zack touching him and his own confused reaction to it had it not been for Cloud.

Who was thankfully not picking up on Zack' disturbing habit of leaping onto Sephiroth, or grabbing his arm. Cloud was self-contained, and Sephiroth greatly appreciated that fact.

Especially now, with Zack grinning, yelling "Sephiroth!" and dragging Cloud over while the boy flailed at the arm that had been on his shoulders getting turned into a headlock. Zack got close enough and grabbed Sephiroth's arm with his free hand. "Everybody's here, let's go!" he said, and bounced out the door, dragging a headlocked Cloud Strife and Sephiroth, somewhat bemused but knowing there was no point in attempting to free himself so best to simply go along, behind him.

Still, there were some questions that had to be asked.

"Lieutenant. Where are we going?"

Zack grinned. "Somewhere I know you've never been before. Trust me," Zack said as he pulled them along, and to his great surprise, Sephiroth did.
XDDDD oh man, at least he recognizes when he's doomed and has managed to take as many precautions as are available despite it? So where did they end up going anyway?

One of these days (TM) I really have to get around to finishing that 0TP fic where Zack and Balthier and Fran and Seph are all in the same universe and Fran looks at Seph and goes "...and you've been putting up with him for how many years now? In retrospect I'm not actually all that surprised you snapped," only much more pithily on account of it being Fran...
Hee--the worst place possible to drag Seph.

The arcade.

XDDDD

That said, I can see Sephiroth discovering the UFO catchers and being fascinated. Because those things cheat and you have to learn to work around the cheating. By the time they leave, Zack has enough stuffed animals to last five years worth of birthdays, Valentine's Days Trianurs, Winter Festivals, and random "Just because!" presents for Aerith, and Sephiroth is plotting. >XD

*snicker* Oh, man. I can just see Fran and Sephiroth together. They would either get along great or hate each other, because they're so much alike and yet, so different.
Oh my god yes.

Although I kind of hope Seph saves a few plushies for himself. In case he needs something to hold in the middle of the night.
I can see him keeping the first one he wins as a trophy.

And everyone else (aside from Zack and Cloud) are like, "...why does General Sephiroth have a squeaky Moogle on his desk?"
*giggles* And Cloud's like, "you wanna tell the General what he can have on his desk?"
...and the person making fun of the General having a stuffed moogle shuts his jaw with a snap

Meanwhile, Reno is trying to plot a way to steal it. XD
...A week from now, it's going to end up on the podium in the assembly hall. Dressed in a little leather coat and holding a long sword. X3
It will, of course, retain both the coat *and* the sword when it winds up on the general's desk again.
When it starts showing up all over, rumors will start to go around that it's actually one of Reeve's constructs and that it's Sephiroth's eyes and ears.

FEAR THE MOOGLE. FEAR IT!
