Prompt: Snow
Characters: Anybody

A tiny, delicate clod of pale powder landed in his palm. It melted in the warmth of his hand, leaving only a thin water residue behind.

The others were playing farther away, between some trees. Ulrich, crouching down to the snow, was making a snowball. He swept it between his hands and packed it into a rough sphere. Odd was less meticulous: any ammunition, no matter how haphazard, would do. He would smile mischievously, and would squeak and spout jolly giggles, (he giggled like a hamster!) chuckles and so forth. Even Ulrich, his more reserved roommate, smiled and sometimes even laughed as they played. It was contagious, but William didn't feel as if he deserved to laugh and enjoy himself.

William was thinking about XANA again; he couldn't imagine how he must have been under XANA's control. He couldn't remember anything. Just a jellyfish thing wrapping its tentacles around him, a slimy slithering sound, and a brief sensation of being drained of consciousness and strength.

On the opposite side were Yumi and Aelita. Yumi, with apparent viciousness, pelted Ulrich with snowballs. Ulrich retaliated, and so both their heads were now dusted with snow.

"Too immature for you?" a voice asked. William made a noncommittal grunt, too distracted in his thoughts to give any other reply.

"Not for me!" Jeremie responded, dashing in to help Aelita.

Finally William arose from the bench. "Hey, who wants me on their team?"

Prompt: Hug(s)

Prompt: Hug(s)
Characters: Nicholas

Math class. Three more class to go, and then they'd be done. Finally.
Thank God for Friday.
Nicholas smiled slightly at the thought. Tonight would a good fishing night, if he could just get Herve to go with him again. Or Sissy, or...maybe...um...
Crap.
Glancing over at his friends, who were currently ignoring him completely, Nicholas sighed. No, he tried that with them. Herve hated it and scared the fish, Sissy whined and scared the fish. It was hopeless. His heart sinking, Nick barely heard the bell ring, and slowly slumped into the hall way. No body glanced his way, students shoved by him. He sighed, and scowled. Who'd notice him anyway? He was invisible.
"195..."
"huh?"
"Thanks!! 196..."
Feeling sorry for himself, Nick barely heard the growing commotion behind him.
"Oy! What the-"
"Have a good day!! 198..."
The sound finally reached his ears, and he looked up. There was someone counting loudly, a girl. Nick shrugged and started forward again, only to find his path blocked. He looked up.
"Hi Nick!"
"Uh...hi, Aelita...?"
The pink haired girl beamed at him.
Hey, she was nice, Nick realized, maybe she'd want to go fishing? Opening his mouth to invite her, his airway was suddenly cut off as the girl engulfed him a tight hug.
She let him go a second later, and grinned. "Happy National Hug Day, Nicholas!! 199..." Still smiling, she turned and hurried down the hall, hugging every one in her path.
Nick just stood there, his eyes quite wide. Well...maybe he wasn't quite so invisible after all.

(You do realize it would be better to revive the thread by responding to the prompt, right?)

New Prompt: Having a picnic
Characters: Any couple (plus a third wheel)
Couple: Odd x Ulrich (and Yumi)
Note: Not an OxU shipper, but I want to be weird sometimes.

Ulrich cleared his throat. "May I offer you some tea, Ms. Della Robbia?"

"You most certainly may, Ulrich dear."

Ulrich gritted his teeth. "Don't call me that. Only Sissi does that."

Odd shrugged. "What else was I supposed to call you? Ulrich-sweetums, Ulrich-y, Ulrich-snookums...oh, how about 'Ulrichums'?

Ulrich blushed. "Cut it out, Odd!"

"I agree." Yumi stopped recording. "You aren't acting like Mr. Robert Pattinpoppy and Ms. Bella Swanforte should. You're acting...married."

"I can't do this, Yumi!" Ulrich exclaimed, in anguish. "Odd and I are incompatible!"

"Do you want to try it with Yumi?" Odd offered.

"No!" Ulrich and Yumi said simultaneously.

(The last time I drabbled, 85 people died, the state of New York declared a state of emergency, and cleanup from the incident is still underway. I'm feeling rather devilish, though, so here's another!)

Prompt: Revival
Characters: Jim

As the smoke cleared from the latest volley of lasers, I looked around the campus for any students trapped in the crossfire. These monsters had come out of nowhere, and caught us all by surprise. Had it not been for my training with the Secret Service, however, I might not have been able to escort the majority of my group of kids to safety. The clip in my nail gun had been emptied several monsters ago, but an empty clip can't deter even Jimbo. The will of the students, however, weren't as strong.

My gaze fell upon a mass of dark brown hair lying on the floor, surrounded by a small pool of blood. Connected to the hair was a body with a light green shirt on -- Ulrich! Gathering up my wits, I darted out into the field, dodging the hellfire raining in all around me, and quickly slung the boy over my shoulder. I wasn't so worried about the blood; the students were my top priority and besides, this jacket was getting a bit old anyway.

As safety grew closer in front of me, I felt a searing pain in the center of my back. One of the bastards had shot me! It was enough to take me down, and as the stubby block on six legs walked towards me, I had a sinking feeling that this was the end of my story. I tried getting back up, but found myself staring directly into the demon eye of the block as it grew redder and redder...

--------

...he's going into cardiac arrest! Get the defibrillator!

Clear!


And with that, I woke. The details swirled around my head, and after a few seconds I saw Stern lying on the stretcher opposite me in the ambulance.

How cold the ambulance was... How very cold... Lifting my head proved to be a challenge, but as soon as I saw Stern, I knew that he needed more help than me. Did they really think I was all washed up?

We don't have enough of IVs for the both of them! This is a catastrophe!

I attempted to speak, but my tongue was thick and my thoughts clouded and heavy and oh how tired I felt. With much effort, I was able to string together a small sentence.

"Revive... Stern..."

And with that, darkness.

-----------------

Now that I think about it, I may have been thinking about Sandy. I just know there was a lot of screaming involved

I'll use my prompt from up there as the new prompt.

Prompt: Social activities at Kadic
Characters: Anyone

Yumi faced her friends on the bench. "XANA's gone, guys. We need to be normal."

"Normal? What's that?" Odd joked.

"He's kinda right. I've been working on programs so long I don't know what a normal kid does anymore."

"Got any ideas, Ulrich?" Yumi asked.

"I think normal kids talk about things....bands, maybe?"

"I got it! We could bring back the Pop Rock Progressives!" Odd swung a victorious finger up, as he was wont to do.

"What? No! I'm not singing again!" Yumi recoiled.

"I could sing," Aelita offered.

"But if you sang, who would make the music?" Odd asked.

Ulrich grunted. "I can play a synthesizer."

Suddenly Christ Bullet---that is, Christophe M'Bala----slid up to them. "Do you guys want to be normal?"

"How much did you hear?!" Yumi moved towards Christophe and assumed a suspicious expression.

"Nothing. But you want to be normal, right?"

"Yes." said Jeremie---begrudgingly.

"Then listen to this." Christophe brought out a strange, small white cylinder. "My cousin got this from America. He thought I'd like it."

"Huh? That's not normal." Ulrich noted.

Christophe shrugged. "Six years from now, it will be." He gestured to Jeremie's laptop. "Who knows? Maybe we'll have laptops in our pockets. Heh, maybe they'll be called 'pocketops.' Or, I dunno, E-Tablets."

(When did France even receive iPods?)

Prompt: Super nuclear

(Dandelion, I had no idea you wrote fanfic! Awesome~)
(And WHAT IS THIS PROMPT YOU HAVE LEFT ME. ok here goes... I'm not quite deliriously tired enough to make this into a JérxHervé fic like I originally planned, you have all been spared)

/

Super Nuclear
{Hervé}

He'd been privy to the Poprock Progressives' first official performance in the humble venue of Kadic's gymnasium.

It was as he watched from the shadowed doorway, as he saw Odd Della Robbia swing his hair madly as he strummed out a solo on his electric guitar, an intensity of expression on his face... and it was that then Hervé Pichon decided he was going to become a rock star.

In his and Nicholas' shared dorm room, the other boy's acoustic guitar lay propped carefully against his bed. Fully tuned (Hervé assumed though he really had no idea) and with a pick lying beside it on the floor. He remembered what he'd seen of Odd and Nicholas, the way they placed their fingers against the frets as they plucked the strings, creating effortless melody with delicate movement.

Hervé picked up the guitar and stood with it awkwardly in hand.

How hard could it be?

/

When Nicholas returned, a polystyrene cup of hot chocolate in hand, it was to an unusual sight.

Hervé, strumming tunelessly and awkwardly on his guitar, forehead sweaty and lank hair messy over his forehead from the impromptu dancing that accompanied his brave attempts at music. Hervé, oblivious, waved in his mind's eye to a screaming crowd, saw the tabloids that proclaimed him as - what had Belpois said? It sounded cool... oh yes that's right - the tabloids that proclaimed him as super nuclear, musical prodigy, a whirlwind force to be reckoned with.

Nicholas shrugged, stepped back into the hall and closed the door after him.

and the next prompt because I really just want to see these two interact somehow -

Prompt: Whimsy
Characters: Ulrich and Nicholas

Wockets and Seersuckers all ran amok,
With Ulrich's shoe and Nicholas's sock
Those two boys, hurriedly dashing
Slammed into each other, crashing, crashing

"Argh!" said Ulrich, rubbing his head,
"How strange," said Nicholas, "why aren't I in bed?"
So befuddled were they that they didn't spot
Yumi taking off her clothes (for she was hot)

Wresting his glasses away from a Geeling,
Jeremie shouted at his friends with feeling,
"Ulrich! Yumi! It's a XANA attack!
Go to Lyoko so we can fight back!"

Yumi put back on her shirt and sped
While Nicholas, in the background, fled to bed
Poor Ulrich, however, he happened to see
Something that left him staring strangely

What did he see? Well, you can guess
But Jeremie, the smart one, he could assess
Quite what happened, and to Odd he told,
"Take his hand, pull him, and keep a tight hold."

They stopped at a manhole, for a strange sight
Had greeted them, and gave them a fright
An enormous Sneetch! A glaring Zower!
And a wavering Woset, all glowing with power!

As the group was beset by the three,
Who bared malice-grins and electricity,
They made a plan, and you'd be surprised
How thoroughly it ensured Laura died.

(Is Dr. Seuss whimsical enough?)

Somebody must really want me to finish that Odd!angst OxU!bromance fic.

Well, here goes.

Prompt: Thyroid
Characters: Ulrich
Words: 225

When he first heard the name of his condition, all he could think was this:

If XANA really wanted to get rid of me, why didn't he think of this first?

After all, what was Graves' disease supposed to mean other than naming the place where an afflicted person would eventually end up?

After Ulrich stopped being too overly dramatic to actually listen to the doctor, he found out he just needed to monitor his food intake and weight, and take some pills every day. That didn't seem too awful, right?

Wrong.

He was miserable. After taking the radioactive iodine to kill off the overactive thyroid and starting to take those pills the doctor prescribed, nothing appealed to him anymore, not even the meatballs they served on the rare occasions that the cafeteria workers actually put in effort to make them good, or the ice cream at the shoppe downtown on his not-dates with Yumi. As time went on, however, things got better, and he was able to play soccer again.

So later that year, when Odd couldn't stop eating or sleeping or complaining of pain, and had this nasty-looking lump growing at the base of his neck, Ulrich took him to a nice doctor that would help him.

He couldn't have guessed that Odd's ailment left him with a ten percent chance of survival.

Gonna try the one sentence prompt option from the OP. I'm no writer, so this will be difficult.

Prompt: Justice
Characters: Yumi, Ulrich and William (pre-Evolution)

"Oh, go ahead and steal Yumi away from me, why don't you, but we'll see who had the last laugh," William snickered as he looked through the binoculars at the couple, completely forgetting that the gift cookies he had laced with copious amounts of fiber were sitting open right next to him instead of them.

Prompt: Dating
Characters: Odd, Jim

“You know, it’s not really allowed in our code of conduct for a student to be giving advice to a teacher.”

“Yeah, I know. But trust me, Jim. This is guaranteed to work.”

“You really think so?”

“Of course I do! Now listen closely. You’re trying to be too hip. Mrs. Hertz likes older things. Dated things. Learn some history and apply it to yourself. You need to date yourself if you want to date her.”

“How?”

“Show her your age and experience. Like... Show her Paco the King of Disco; it’s perfect for this.”

“You sure, Della Robbia?”

“Absolutely.”

Hooray for thread revival. Should've written this ages ago, when Snickie still posted. Anywho...

Prompt: Words
Character: Ulrich
Words: 100
Rating: K+

Ulrich opened his mouth and turned his head toward Yumi…

Words are meaningless when staring down an oncoming laser blast. There’s no time to spout off a witty one-liner or choke out a goodbye - an inhalation as the imminent danger is realized is all that’s allowed before fate runs its course.

…his eyes widened amidst a blinding flash…

Ulrich could head, though – Yumi’s startled gasp, Aelita’s half-second late “Watch out!” and Odd’s foul language as he wasted the monster responsible. It wasn’t closure, but it was enough to know it all had mattered.

…and his digital skeleton faded away.

New prompt: Fluff
Characters: Any couple will do
