Bonus Round 4: Quotes

Quotes


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 22 July. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


An oldie but a goodie—in this round, we draw inspiration from famous words said by other people.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible.

RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietzsche
    • The quote can come from almost anything—famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, etc.— but please don't quote personal conversations you've had or overheard.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Natsuo & Yuzuko). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Natsuo/Yuzuko). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with your quote-inspired fanwork.

All scored content must be created new for this round.


Etc.
If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only (see the line of links below this post).

did u want a sequel to cursebreaker shunshin bc that's what i wrote, apparently.

***

shunshin's eyes are cool behind his glasses, unimpressed and unintimidated, the massive spiraling maze of sutra surrounding him collapsing back into something the size of a stack of playing cards, almost innocuous in his hand. "did you make a wish?" he says, and the demon's face stretches into a grin that's almost familiar.

"that would be telling," it says, tapping the charred coin with one long nail. the coin disintegrates in a puff of black flakes and shunshin raises a casual hand, the resulting blast of cold air clearing the room. he knows better than to breathe any of that in. "why don't you try it?" the demon says, looking at shunshin out of miyuki's eyes with a glint that really isn't too far off from the real thing. it has been with him most of his life, shunshin supposes. it's had time to learn.

"no, thank you," shunshin says, sounding bored. try harder, his tone says. it's the same one he would use on the real miyuki.

"c'mon," the demon says, wheedling, and this is where its making the biggest mistake. miyuki would switch tactics faster, go on the offensive, find a weakness to exploit. of course, shunshin's limited the demon's options, and nothing it could conjure from the confines of the charmed circle is going to get it out. which leaves bargaining, something that's always difficult for a thing that's used to just taking what it wants. "there's got to be something you want."

"oh, there is," shunshin says, listening to the slow, even ticking coming from somewehre in the room. it's been speeding up almost imperceptibly since they started the process. it's time. "i would like you to leave."

the sutra flies from shunshin's hands, blizzard of paper whiting out the entire room, the demon's howl cut off by the sudden hush of falling snow.

*

miyuki's eyes are bloodshot when he opens them, entire body bruised with exhaustion. it's probably not something he wants shunshin to see, but he hadn't given shunshin a contact or brought someone along and it's not a good idea to leave anyone alone after something like that, so here they are. miyuki's been down for thirty-six hours straight, but his skin is clear of magic for the first time in what has to be years and years.

"you've really got to stop undressing me like this," miyuki says, voice a hoarse croak. shunshin scoffs.

"if you keep trying to cover your vulnerabilities with the same joke it just gets sad," he says.

there's a beat and then miyuki laughs, spreading his palm over his sternum, where the master cursemark used to be. "you really are good," he says.

"remember that when you get the bill," shunshin says, and miyuki's laughing again, laughing until his eyes water.
