**********

“Donnie, you’ve blown me off for more than a month. I’m starting to take it personally.” 

Donnie groans. The last thing he wants to hear right now is Jenny’s voice, pulling him out of the sweet cocoon of his bed. He’s managed to wrap himself around someone small and very warm, and all he wants is to go back to sleep as he shamelessly steals a little more body heat from that small, warm someone. 

Donnie. I shouldn’t have to hack your computer just make sure you’re okay. Wake up!” 

With one more groan for good measure, Donnie rolls onto his back and turns his head to his laptop. He blinks wearily at the screen, where Jenny watches him, eyebrows raised.

“What do you want,” he says, not quite a question. His voice sounds like it’s been dragged through a street full of rocks and broken glass. 

“Oh good, you’re up.” Jenny pushes a hand through her hair. “Seriously, Donnie, I don’t know what’s going on with you, but this whole ignoring me thing is — holy shit.“ Her eyes flick over him, then widen as her mouth drops open. She recovers almost immediately, but two spots of color dance high on her cheeks. “Bad timing?”

“What?” he asks, still sleep-fuzzed. When he follows her gaze, he finds April curled into his side, one hand hooked around the leather straps crossing his chest.

I’ve just been slammed into the wall by this fic. Lemme catch my breath…lemme…lemme…

theherocomplex you shared a LeoxKarai song with me…now you have to listen to this one. This is painfully beautiful. You too, hotmilkytea and anyone else reading GaVG!!

'I could have been
So many things
But it would never be enough for you

I was the one
You counted on
But I was never the one for you
Now I know, I lost you a long time ago

City of strangers
Out of danger
In your arms, I was half awake, half asleep

Grab ahold to what I got
Regretting all that I’m not
I couldn’t be the one who’d stand by your side
If it was all a mistake
Then I guess we’re both to blame

I could have been
So many things
But it would never be enough for you.’

/So, yeah. I’m crying over here. This is your April x Donnie, Bee. This is them. WAAAAAH!

donatanna asked: Are you still doing the meme? April, Hero :)

Thank you! Hope you enjoy fluff!

Natural Instinct - Rated K - April - Hero

“This way.”

She shook her head, planted her feet.

He did a double take.  “What.  I’m right.  I’m right, April.”

“Why don’t you trust me?”

“Wh- of course I trust you,” Donnie chortled.

“Let me lead.”

He choked.

“It’s…delicate machinery.”

Her brow cocked.

“It’s designed for my hands.”

Her lips pursed.  With watery joints, he handed it over.

“Let’s see.”  She tossed it into the water.  He gasped; horrified.  “C’mon.”

Minutes later, a joyful Mikey pounced.  “April, my hero! Now Donnie can be the princess in peril!”

“Why can’t April-“  He swallowed his protest at her look.  “Right.”

“Go hide!”

There’s just something…sensual about this new version of Donnie. No?

Getting There - Rated K - Leo x Karai - sometime after Vengeance is Mine

*********************************************

“Why’re you here, Leo?”

“Do you really need to ask that?”

She crossed her arms.  But her eyes were sad, not defensive. 

“Please, just trust in him.”  In me.

She waved him away, turned to fill cracked mugs with tea.  Loose floorboards creaked.  She settled next to him beneath a window with a view of scattered stars.

“It’s not…just…drop it, okay?” Irritation flared. 

Immediately he backed off.  “Sure.”

They sipped the tea in silence, listening to the night creep, the murmur of remote traffic; temporarily distanced from their worries; taking comfort in each other’s presence, both pretending not to notice.

Just wanted to tell ya…

I will get to all those drabble requests - thank you all for sending them to me, you wicked, wild, lovely people! But for now I’m off to work…and uh, speaking of wicked, thanks to a very productive chat with alexhamato, I’ll be writing and posting a one shot that is gonna make you all hate me.

*puts on flame-retardant gear and mask*

For the torches, of course.
