Title: Guilt
Author: Mierke
Fandom & Disclaimer: Criminal Minds – It’s not mine, it’s Jeff Davis’. I’m just borrowing his world and very thankful for the chance.
Pairing/Characters: JJ
Prompt: It’s been a lie this whole time for 5_prompts
Words: 100
Rating: G
Spoilers/Timeline: Set after season 7
A/N: Written for ithinkitsayit

Over and over again, Jennifer had seen the people around her fall apart. Applying for the BAU, she had all but given up on long, lasting love.

When Will came, she kept it hidden. A small, determined part of her thought that if she didn’t talk about her relationship, it wouldn’t get hurt. It couldn’t be broken if no one knew it existed.

It didn’t work. Would it have worked? Somehow in all her reasoning she had forgotten she worked with a group of profilers. Did they make this happen?

Was Will’s injury, the threat to her son, her fault?



Title: Remembering

Spoilers/Timeline: Set a couple of years after Passion (2.17)
A/N: Written for angelus2hot

Every year on this day, Rupert remembers her.

Not the way she died; not how she looked lying on his bed. Not the way he imagines Angel killing her, with glee and passion.

He remembers how she lived. How she loved.

It used to hurt, a pain not unlike a knife buried in his heart. These days it’s a soft ache, a wound that has never entirely healed, but all the scar tissue has rendered it almost invisible, untouchable.

On this day, every year, he uncovers it. He lets himself bleed and cry and hurt.

And covers it up again.



Title: Making a difference

Pairing/Characters: Giles, Buffy

Spoilers/Timeline: Set during Prophecy Girl (1.12)
A/N: Written for lynnylou

Giles studied every book he could find on prophecies, rushed his way through every Watcher’s Diary, translated and retranslated the prophecy until even he had to admit defeat.

All the knowledge in the world wouldn’t be enough to save his Slayer.

She had barely had the time to make a difference in the world. Not Slayer-difference, who cared about that? But a real difference; the difference that came from loving someone, from letting someone love you.

He had to give her time. He had to save her.

(Never did he notice; that decision proved Buffy had already made a difference.)



Title: Living forever
Author: Mierke

Spoilers/Timeline: Pre-series
A/N: Written for dance_the_dance

“Wouldn’t you like to live forever?”

Willow shifted her legs a little, tickling Xander with her foot. He grabbed it and Willow dissolved into giggles when he got his payback.

“Stop!”

“Living forever, huh?” she added, after her breath had calmed down to something resembling normal frequency. “Even if it would be scientifically possible, which it’s not, why would anyone want that?”

“Never dying seems pretty neat, no? Think of all the stuff you could learn!”

“Ooh!” Willow perked up, her ears reddening as she saw Xander’s grin. “Not without you, though. You?”

Xander smiled.

“Not without you,” he echoed.



Title: Haunted
Author: Mierke
Fandom & Disclaimer: Original; this is mine.
Prompt:
Photobucket
Words: 111
A/N: A poem (Because there are five prompts in a prompt table!)

Her footsteps echo through the night
She hides from shadows, hides from light
Nothing it as it may seem,
- she is wise beyond her years -
Fighting ever falling tears,
Haunted by a missing dream.

She flees; the fiery shadows last
She knows her future is her past
Death her only happy end
- she is old beyond her years -
Running faster through her fears
Her breath – her life – almost spent.

The laughs she hears turn into screams
She hides her smiles in broken dreams
Her life flashes in her eyes
- she is dead beyond her years -
Sudden silence in her ears
No one witnessed her goodbyes.

One of your gifts I've noticed is to nail a particular situation in a single line. This is one of them. VERY well done! (I really appreciate the way you write about Buffy btw, even when it's through the eyes of someone else.)
