So... this was doing the rounds a while back, but I didn't have the time to join in, even though I wanted to. And then I thought this would be a nice way to give my friends Christmas presents, because you get to choose your present.

The format:

* Choose a letter of the alphabet

* Choose a word which begins with that letter

* Choose your fandom and the characters you want me to write about

* Sit back and wait for the result.

Fandoms: Sailor Moon (including "Exiles" stories); Fruits Basket; Harry Potter (I will attempt anything for you here, in the spirit of Christmas, so bring on your alternative pairings); Chronicles of Narnia; Doctor Who; Heroes; I'll even attempt Veronica Mars & House M.D., if you want, but I warn you, it might not be good.

List
A - phoenixfyre13: 'Almost', Ron/Hermione or Molly/Arthur
B
C - gijane7702: 'Christmas', Remus/Tonks
D - dark_branwen: 'Drunk', Remus/Sirius

Re: The Enduring Connection

"Ohh..." Lilly said with a smile. "I'm glad to be here, too, sweetie. But you know, I can't stay."

"What...?" Veronica lifted her head again, a little slower this time. "What do you mean? I thought you..."

"I just said, it isn't your time. Not yet. Not for a long while. You're a secret agent, Veronica Mars, you have to catch the bad guys. No sleeping on the job."

"Wait... don't go..." Veronica pushed herself onto her knees. "Lilly..."

Lilly shimmered like light on water. "Make sure you throw the book at them, Veronica."

"I promise - Lilly -!"

She stretched out and there was a flash of light, and then she was kneeling on a cold stone floor, staring at two men. Men she'd been tracking for months; men who were rich and powerful, and therefore extremely dangerous when threatened. One of them smirked and she felt her headache pulse in response. She tasted blood in her mouth as well, and felt a cold pure anger running down her spine. She knew this anger so well. It had been with her for a long time. Ever since Lilly...

Lilly.

She looked up, and as she did so, there was a spark from the wires overhead that caused both men to flinch backwards. Then there was a creaking and a groaning, and another flash of light, and the scene was lit up in monochrome. For a moment, Veronica thought she saw Lilly standing there, smiling, before half the roof caved in and she ran towards the man who lay tied up on the floor, desperate to stop him getting crushed.

"Weird," Logan said later, when they were both in hospital with bandaged heads, His'n'Hers injuries.

"What?" Veronica asked, keeping her eyes closed. There were so many things that Logan could be referring to (their relationship, for example), that it was better to wait and see what he was thinking.

"That warehoue was abandoned, right?"

She turned her head and opened one eye, with a long-suffering expression. "Yeah... it's condemned. They're pulling it down in a couple of weeks."

"So... the electricity supply would have been cut off," he said slowly, meeting her gaze. "What happened... shouldn't have happened."

Veronica felt cold suddenly. She pulled her bathrobe tighter around her and looked at the clock. It was almost visiting time and she was looking forward to seeing her dad, not least because it meant that Logan would stop talking.

"Veronica...?"

"Don't think about it, Logan. It doesn't matter how we survived, the point is that we did survive. Which is more than can be said for those bastards who assaulted us."

"You are telling me to leave something alone?" Logan crossed his arms and rested his head on them, smiling at the ceiling. "How times change."

Veronica felt her own lips twitch and turned carefully onto her side so he couldn't see that there were tears in her eyes. It was all right, they'd pass. It was just that she'd become so used to taking care of herself, the knowledge that Lilly was still looking out for her made her feel rather weak, with that peculiar feeling in her heart of happiness and sadness blended together so well that she couldn't decide what she was feeling. Only Lilly could ever do that.

I'll catch the bad guys for you, Lilly. I promise. I haven't forgotten.

We'll always be together, however far it seems.
We'll always be together, together in electric dreams.
