[Writing, Prose] The Green Fields of France

Title: The Green Fields of France
Author: eirene_danae
Rating: PG
Word Count: 811
Summary: A girl visits an old cemetery, where long since forgotten ghosts still haunt the gravestones, reaching out to whomever is willing to listen to their story.
A/N: A piece I wrote back in 2009. It was inspired by a beautiful song by Dropkick Murphys, The Green Fields of France, which moves me every time. I consider this one of my favorite writing works, so I decided to polish it up a bit (it was written almost five years ago, after all) and post it here. I hope you will enjoy it.

She couldn’t decipher anything else. She stretched her hand out and brushed the name there engraved, closing her eyes.Collapse )

[Fic, The Office] The Duel

Title: The Duel
Author: eirene_danae
Characters/Pairing: Dwight/Angela/Andy, Pam
Rating: PG
Word Count: 796
Continuity: Season 5, episode 11 "The Duel"
Summary: A side of The Duel episode not everybody got to see.
Disclaimer: Obviously I own nuttin'.
A/N: Thanks producers of The Office for deleting some vital scenes from this episode. Angela is not just a two-faced bitch like it appears from the outside. She is honestly conflicted when it comes to picking one of the two men, because she still has very deep feelings for Dwight. The scene with Pam at the end really breaks my heart.

Sometimes there’s just a hard-working petite woman trying to make a conscientious decision about the rest of her life.Collapse )

[Fic, DC] I Just Can’t Wait to Be

Title: I Just Can’t Wait to Be
Author: eirene_danae
Characters/Pairing: Arthur Light/Kimiyo Hoshi, sort of.
Rating: PG
Word Count: 538
Continuity: The cootieverse, courtesy of duskdog717. An AU of adorable proportions.
Summary: Nobody wants to be Artie Light’s playmate, but there’s a new Japanese girl in the school…
Disclaimer: Obviously DC owns them.

Artie Light was possibly the least popular kid of the whole first grade.Collapse )

[Fic, HP&DH] Fred...?

Author: eirene_danae
Characters: Weasleys, all of them together for the last time.
Rating: PG
Word Count: 561
Summary: George sees Fred dead for the first time.
Disclaimer: I do not own the Harry Potter characters, they are only JK Rowling's. Sadly enough.
Author's Notes/Warnings: Inspired by this picture by Catching-Smoke on dA. This was probably the worst moment out of all the horrible tragic deaths throughout the seven books. I remember harbouring some serious homicidal thoughts towards Mrs Rowling for a long while.

He looked so peaceful, George thought wildly, almost as if he was only sleeping. Then why on earth was no one trying to wake him up?Collapse )

[Fic, DC] You Found Me

Author: eirene_danae
Characters/Pairing: Guy/Bea/Tora
Rating: PG-13 for a couple of F-bombs
Word Count: 2362
Summary: Guy founds out Tora is dead. He doesn't know it yet, but he will not be alone in this.
Disclaimer: Not mine, obviously. DC's.
Author's Notes/Warnings: Inspired by The Fray's "You Found Me", this fic deals with much angst and UST between Guy and Bea. It's not a pairing I ship, not really, but 1) it's canon, 2) they would work on a short-termed relationship. As in, just for the time Tora is dead. Then they can be back at each other's throats.

It was slowly creeping on him that Ice was dead. Gone forever. And he hadn’t been there.Collapse )

[Fic, DC] Cold Heart

Author: eirene_danae
Characters/Pairing: Guy/Tora
Rating: PG
Word Count: 844
Summary: "I just zapped 'im with my power ring--which by the way, is fueled with will power--which by the way, means I've got a real strong mind--which by the way, proves I'm not just the muscle-bound clod you think I am!"
And that's why I love Guy Gardner, everybody.
Disclaimer: Not mine, obviously. DC's.
Author's Notes/Warnings: Just mushy stuff I wrote almost two years ago, when I first got into the whole Tora-and-Guy-are-the-cutest-couple-ever thing.

Guy Gardner’s horrible character and behavior was no mystery for anyone. He was a jerk, an arrogant, egocentric, megalomaniac being and he was sickenly proud of it.Collapse )

[Fic, DC] Prankin' Guy

Title: Prankin' Guy
Author: Eirene
Characters/Pairing: Guy/Tora
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1145
Continuity: Around the beginning of Guy's Warrior run, but really it's no specific time, it's just crack.
Summary: Don't make Tora mad. Her petty revenges are the worst.
Disclaimer: Not mine, obviously. DC's.
Author's Notes/Warnings: Just enjoy the crack. Oh and this was originally a prize for ladytalon1 for a contest held over at DC-Couples on deviantART.

With a head-splitting hangover, Guy woke up one morning on a foreign couch, disoriented. He groaned as he moved his heavy head to the side to take in his bearings and try and remember the how’s and when’s of the previous night.Collapse )

[Fic, DC] Who I used to be

Title: Who I used to be
Author: Eirene
Characters/Pairing: Babs, Dinah
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1173
Continuity: Some sort of time between Birds of Prey and The Black Canary and Green Arrow Wedding issues, I guess?
Summary: Two of the most awesome women DC ever managed to create. And they are BFFs.
Disclaimer: DC owns 'em, the fucking bastards.
Author's Notes/Warnings: I've been working on this on and off for about a year, but now, after them dumb September solicits, it seems appropriate to post as many Babs-centered fics as possible. Because she was the first and the best Batgirl, sure, but she also was the first and best woman to get shot in the back by the Joker, survive, become paralysed, set up a kickass persona as the Oracle and lead a team of badass chicks such as the Birds of Prey. But apparently all of this isn't enough. Damn you DC. Damn you to Hell.

It has been difficult, I won’t deny it. The feeling of being completely useless tormented me, not able to walk, to run, to feel the cool breeze blowing in my hair as I skipped over Gotham’s rooftops.Collapse )

[Fic, Marvel] How they became who they are (Erik/Charles)

Title: How they became who they are
Author: eirene_danae
Characters/Pairing: Charles and Erik (slashy or non-slashy, as you prefer), mention of others
Rating: PG
Word Count: 748
Continuity: Set during training week at Xavier Mansion in First Class
Summary: A catchy codename is everything. It sucks that your friend’s little sister gets to pick it for you.
Disclaimer: Not mine, Marvel’s
Author's Notes/Warnings: None, really. Just silliness and playing around for the first time with these characters, I love them both so, so much!

“...and we were thinking: you should be Professor X,” she points at Charles with emphasis before turning with a flurry towards Erik. “And you should be Magneto!” “Exceptional...”Collapse )
