I totally tried to write more of both TTYNKAP and Puppyverse, and my ficbrain gave me the middle finger. Hell, it gave me the middle finger trying to write necessary plot-type stuff for HC. XD;;;;

Anyway, I need to get back into writing, but since my ficbrain is being tetchy and not quite getting into the writing groove (everything I write feels vaguely off, y'know?), I'm putting up a challenge for one-comment fic. Anything Compilation of FF7 or anything in jou!canon is game--I figure I need to prime the pump a bit before I can get back into my big projects since I haven't written anything of note in months. ;_;

So, prompts? I'll write up to five. :D

1. Puppyverse: Cloud's birthday party.
2. TTYKNAP - Reno, cuddling
3. HC - How'd Zack get that bike again?
4. Middish!verse: Mama's matzahballs
5. Puppyverse - "Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?"


OK, let's go TTYKNAP, then, and hitting backstory! :D

Reno and Jie are about 8 and 9, and this is before "Things that Go Boom."


Jie yawned suddenly and rubbed his eyes. "I'm lei le," he said. "I wanna go to shui."

"Wha?" Reno said, blinking. He was having a hard time keeping his eyes open. It was pretty late, almost ten o'clock, but Jie's mom hadn't come home yet, so Reno had stayed over and they had spent the whole afternoon watching TV and playing. Then it had gotten dark, and there was food and heat at Jie's place, so he just sort of stayed--he hadn't wanted to go out in the cold all alone just to be stuck by himself with no food and maybe no heat. It was nice at Jie's place.

Reno yawned, and blinked at the TV. It was boring TV now, just some people talking about some fire or something. But he blinked at it and watched, because the lady had a nice voice. He felt his eyes drifting shut, and he fought it a few times before his head dropped.

It only seemed like a minute passed, but suddenly something was shaking him. He blinked sleepily. "What?"

"Gai shui biao le," Jie mumbled, rubbing his eyes and tugging at Reno's arm. Reno was too tired to even try to figure it out, and let Jie haul him up. "Guan the TV," he said, one hand gesturing vaguely in the direction of the TV, and Reno groped for the remote and flipped it off as Jie sleepily turned off the heater, then Reno stumbled after Jie towards Jie's bedroom.

It was the middle of winter, and Jie's room was cold. The heater hadn't been on back there, and they could see their breath. It was cold enough to sting Reno almost out of his tiredness, just for a little while.

Jie changed into a pair of pyjamas, and Reno shivered, wishing he was warm. Jie suddenly pushed a pair of his old pyjamas at Reno, and they were thick and warm, so Reno changed into them quickly, his teeth starting to chatter.

There was only one bed, but they were small, and it was cold. They got under the covers quickly, covering their heads and huddling next to each other.

Jie was warm, and it was cold.

Reno moved closer to him, and Jie moved closer to him, and the two of them curled up against each other. After a few minutes, Reno, huddled against his friend and covered in blankets, finally felt warm again, and, His eyes began drift shut again, and, surrounded by warmth and the low, steady sound of Jie breathing deeply as he nodded off, drifted into sleep.
Awwwwww!!!! Cute, cute, cute!! *cannot properly express how adorable and lovable this is*
