Notes: For [community profile] 100words prompt #59, Comfort and [community profile] draco100 prompt #27, Hogwarts.

Flames dance in the fireplace, seasoned cherry logs scenting the air. Hermione leans against Draco. She cradles her tea in both hands and takes a deep breath, letting it out with a sigh.

"Tough day, Professor?"

Hermione hums. "First month of school is always rough. Teaching everyone to find their way around Hogwarts. Three firsties in tears this week." She tilts her head back to smile at him. "A nice fire and hot tea ready makes it better, though."

"Glad to hear it." Draco pulls a blanket from the back of the sofa. "Curl up and relax. You've earned it."

I am going to use the Force here: You did notice that I missed a check-in for yesterday. *waves hand* There. Now! Let us continue. I will be your host for the rest of this month, and I look forward to ending September on a high note. What have you been doing today?

And a silly question to start things off: Do you do hand exercises at your keyboard before (or after) writing?

PROMPT #35 - REVENGE

 Still one more day to get entries from last week's prompt in! In the meantime, let's move on.

This week's prompt is #35 - Revenge

Is revenge truly a dish best served cold or will an eye for an eye make the whole world blind? Either way, this week is all about revenge.

Does Tifa want revenge for what happened at Nibelheim? Will Cloud demand revenge on Sephiroth for killing Aeris?  Is Rufus plotting revenge on those that instigated the terrorist attacks on the reactor? Would Vincent seek revenge for injustices he endured? 

This week plot revenge, but do it in just 100 words!

Silly Mod:
And as food for thought, here is a Calvin and Hobbes quote on revenge: “Well, remember what you said, because in a day or two, I'll have a witty and blistering retort! You'll be devastated THEN!”

It's time to sign up for the October WIP challenge!

Some people join the challenge midmonth, or comment on check-in posts without signing up, which is fine -- I'm glad there's a way for the challenge to be useful in a variety of ways.

But for those of you who find the commitment of signing up useful, please leave a comment with the below information.

Signups will be open until the end of September.



  • Level of challenge: 1 chapter, 1000 words, 1 fic finished, whatever you like
  • Fandom(s) involved: if you know at this point
  • What you're looking for from the challenge: this could be as vague or specific as you like: someone to be accountable to, someone to remind you to write, someone to bounce ideas off, etc.
  • What you could offer other participants yourself: ditto!
  • How people should contact you: DW message, e-mail, IM etc.
  • Time zone: useful for seeing who might be up for a writing session at a time convenient to you


Copypaste below:



I couldn't continue to run this challenge without assistance with the daily check-in posts. Many thanks to everyone who's helped with the check-ins before!

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping out. A week per person would be ideal (I usually assign weeks running Sunday-Saturday just for consistency). I'm happy to help come up with suggestions for discussion topics (& Friday or Saturday is usually the general chat/snippet/beta-seeking etc. post).

(& if you've completed a fic through the challenge, don't forget our collection on AO3! If you need AO3 invites, let me know.)

There's a lot of fandom cross-pollination between Critical Role and The Adventure Zone, which makes a lot of sense -- they're both story-focused Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, a family of nerds playing their beloved games and sharing them with an audience -- but despite my love for CR, I'd been a bit reluctant to dive in to TAZ. But then I learned that the current campaign would be wrapping up soon (I understand it's recently done so), and I decided to give it a shot. I'd been listening to it every now and again as I had time, but it didn't suck me in as completely as Critical Role did... and then I reached The Eleventh Hour, which is the fifth main story arc. I'd noticed the GM's storytelling and the players' character work improving over time, but everything took a serious level up in the previous arc (The Crystal Kingdom), and early in The Eleventh Hour everything solidified, pulling me into the story to the point that I'm now dying to know what happens next.

It used to be that I never wrote fic for a canon that I hadn't finished, but anyone who knows me and my relationship kinks (specifically, separation and reunion) will probably not be surprised that I was taken by the urge to write about one particular scene. Cut for spoilers. )

I'm sure this moment has been ficced a thousand times, but I learned my lesson about looking for fic when I'm behind on a canon from Dragon Age. ;) So for now I'll just present my own quick take on the scene; maybe once I've finished the Balance storyline I'll revisit it with the full knowledge of anything relevant that happens later. Note, I'm still early in the arc that follows Eleventh Hour (The Suffering Game; I've only listened to the first episode) so please no spoilers for anything later in comments.

Title: Break of Day
Fandom: A Little Chaos
Rating: PG
Notes: prompt #059 "comfort"


Tears finally drying on her face, Sabine rests her cheek against the pillow.

Pale morning light falls through the shuttered windows. She takes a shaky breath. The scent in the air reminds her of summer rain--wet grass and pine needles, and beneath it, Andre's earthy fragrance.

He lies behind her, warm and solid, his arm holding her close. His thumb brushes gently against her wrist, steady and patient, each stroke easing the grief of her memories. It has been too long since anyone held her like this.

She turns to look at him. "I'm glad that you are here."
