Stage #2 -- Romance (February 8 - February 14)

Stage #1 - attraction is now closed. Next stage is:

Romance -- 1. a. A love affair.
b. Ardent emotional attachment or involvement between people; love.
c. A strong, sometimes short-lived attachment, fascination, or enthusiasm for something.
d. Essentially an act of trying to influence or gain favor of another by lavishing attention or gifts upon them.

There are two types of romance: (a) selfish romance & (b) selfless romance.

(a) Selfish Romance - occurs when you do romantic acts solely for the purpose of gaining something for yourself -- like to get gifts, to impress someone else, or even simply for sexual favors whether your partner is interested or not.

(b) Selfless Romance - occurs when you do romantic acts for the enjoyment and pleasure of your partner. You receive your enjoyment and pleasure through their happiness.

Make it as traditional or as twisted as you want. Bend it, twist it, whatever you need to do, until it works for you.

Admin Note: Participants who failed to submit their first stage contribution by 11:59 EST will not be allowed to continue the challenge. I'll be updating the claim list tomorrow. (**I'll get back to those who requested a day's extension.)

Author's Notes:

1. This is for Theme 2, but chronologically, it's the first installment in this series.
2. I am deeply grateful to wordsofastory for flash beta and reassurance -- and having said that, have to add that everything wrong with this is my fault, not hers.

Bleach Romance Ishida x Orihime

Bleach, pairing Ishida x Orihime
author and artist: debbiechan
Rating: PG

To keep Orihime and Ishida in canon a little longer, I’m going with one interpretation of romance as “chivalric adventure” from the Merriam Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature, but the notion of self-sacrifice fits too!^^

Here’s the art:

Have you ever been pierced through the heart by a Quincy arrow?

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, Albel/Fayt

Title: Destiny (2/5)
Author: starza
Theme: #2 Romance
Rating: PG
Genre: Flangst (Fluff/Angst) (In this part)
Word Count: 434 ficlet
Author's Notes: Honestly, I think this theme was the hardest to come up with something for, considering your typical 'romance' isn't going to happen between these two. Really, this isn't exactly 'Romantical' in nature at first glance, but if you look close enough, you can see something. This can take place before or after Fayt and Albel's ending together.

[Crossover: Gundam Wing/Dark is Rising] Will/Quatre (#1)

Title: The Meaning of Forever
Author: Starsinger dysisfaye
Theme: # 1 - Attraction
Rating: PG
Author's Notes: 579 words. It was 1923 last night. Be happy. (I had this vague feeling it was supposed to be under 500 yesterday, but when I looked at one of the rule-postings and I didn't see that limit, I didn't worry about it. Then I found out I was right the first time.) Also, it's late, and you have my deepest apologies for that. I didn't want to post it until I had permission; hence why it's posted today rather than last night. Finally a warning: it's kind of missing one of the main characters for most of this chapter. And no, the beginning isn't indicative of the plot line. Not really.

Title: Incarceration-Nadir
Author: kimbari
Theme: #2 - Romance
Rating: G
Word Count: 100

She needs to pay for her interference. She had no right to break her word. She had power only at my sufferance. I stood behind her. I'd held her in my arms. I loved her, although I never said the words. She must have known that nothing was more important to me than she was, although I never said the words. Why was protecting and preserving the fleet more important than keeping her word to me?

Why has this woman never been more beautiful, more desirable, than she was when she surrendered and the door clanged shut on her cell.

DMC - Dante - From Ebony

Devil May Cry - Dante/Vergil

Title - Finalement -Attraction
Author - trowacko
Warnings - angst, Dante/Vergil, twincest
Disclaimer - i do not own Devil May Cry, nor do i make a claim to. no profit, no harm done.

The duels were supposed to be the finale of an equation written with choices as variables and years as its multipliers. Every battle Dante entered was another that steeled his heart a little more for that last blow. His mind was set to hear the last beat of his brother's heart as he sent him into oblivion at long last, watching as the last breath was taken. How would he mourn such a loss, or would he at all?

Dante stood at one end of the rooftop of a decrepit building overlooking the ruins of a city long dead. A safe place to destroy while he went through the motions Collapse )
