Drabble Day: Prompt No. 2  


Hope you're all still working on your drabbles for the last prompt. Remember you have until the end of the challenge to post, so keep them coming - I hope there are lots to read when I wake up in a few hours!

And this hour's prompt is: Surprise.

Surprise!
Ben has observed that people rarely make sense. This week has been different.

Suddenly things are clearer, simpler; when someone needs to go somewhere they say it nice and easy. They always have an explanation even if he doesn’t understand it or other people think it’s odd, an explanation is enough – it means things make sense.

It’s nice.

A nice birthday treat: people stopped making everything so complicated.

Ben has such good friends.

And a surprise party!? It’s so kind of them it brings a tear to Ben’s eye.

How did they manage this?

Ben’s friends are generous and sneaky.

Hahahah oh Ben. This may be the most apt thing I have ever read about him (even though there was no mention of shirtlessness!) *loves*

The Way He Is
Marc's on the phone when Deniz comes home; he has his cold face on, which either means unpleasant business partners on the other end, or Roman’s father.

"That's regrettable, Mrs. Wagner, but I'm not interested in your moral judgement," Marc says coolly. His mother’s name stops Deniz in his tracks, confused. "And as for your son, well, that’s your loss." A smile chases the chill from Marc's expression when he looks up, spotting Deniz. "I happen to think he's great just the way he is."

Deniz can't help his silly grin at all. Marc still surprises him almost every day.

Re: The Way He Is
Heeeeh! DeMarc love. I love the association that Deniz makes first - that it's the face Marc uses for Roman's father and then he discovers that it's being used to stand up to him and it makes him all happy and that makes me all happy (and punctuation retarded).

*loves*

Re: The Way He Is
Marc, you are a hero! Not that we haven't known this all along!
And I love every fic that delves into the Marc/Deniz relationship, and this development is exactly what I would imagine to have happened between these two. Lovely!

Re: The Way He Is
I love DeMarc. No idea why but there's something about them that's just so damn irresistible.

And I love this glimpse of their relationship. Or possible relationship. *glares at AWZ*

Definitely not watching Knock Out (Love is like a car crash) on repeat.
Bending in on himself Mike brings his arms up feebly to protect his head. Lars keeps punching, hurling his body weight into Mike’s side, one fist lands on his left shoulder, two have caught his chin. Lars is yelling but Mike’s ears are ringing too much to understand him.

So much for worrying Lars wouldn’t care. Whatever this is, it’s not indifference. He’s definitely regretting not calling first though.

Mike retreats as much as possible into the wall of the Canadian Olympic ice rink. Lars punches the wall twice then steps back. He stares and says stupidly, “You’re alive then.”

Re: Definitely not watching Knock Out (Love is like a car crash) on repeat.
I cannot tell you how much I approve of your Mike/Lars theme! *flails* I love this, it's so characteristic of these two. YOU'RE ALIVE OMG YOU ASSHOLE I WILL PUMMEL YOU INTO OBLIVION. Heeeh. It's clearly insane that this makes me feel mushy but it does. Awwwww, soulmate violence <333 (lolol, yeah, IDE).

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE! God, this is awesome stuff - you write perfect drabbles, they're all a blur of visceral action and mood, and then you slam in the reason at the end in a way that makes it all make sense. I love it!

Also, I can so see this happening! Oh boys.

Why?
“You know what really surprised me back then?” Marc said, setting his bottle of Singha beer back on the coaster. “The way you treated him. So differently from everybody else. Why?”

The other Marc shrugged.

“Who am I to judge? You know this is as close as I will ever get to a perfect life. Renate, this place, friends like you and your boys. But sometimes... Don't know if Roman ever told you about Diana's mother and me... If she walked through this door right now, suitcase in hand, I honestly don't know what I would do...

I'M LATE TO THE PARTY, I KNOW
Marc's eyes were still closed when he answered the phone. His voice thick with sleep, syllables unusually slow.

"Hello?"

"Marc, hello."

Hesitant, cautious, unmistakable.

"Roman?" Superfluous question. "What's wrong?" It was, after all, three AM.

A soft, self-conscious chuckle. "I just..."

Marc sighed. Of course he just. He always just. But this was the first time in months he'd heard it. His stomach twisted; how he hated those words; how he loved that voice.

"Look, Roman, I don't think-"

"No." Decisive. "I'm sorry, I won't call again."

Silence. Neither hung up. Marc inhaled deeply, shut his eyes again.

"How's Essen?"

*blushes* Hahaha, I'm amazed that my words decided to fit into tiny drabble-sized boxes for a few hours. My words don't usually do that.

And yes, threesome. It needs to happen. It happens in my head fairly often...
