Title: Spring
Author: LauraM/buffyspazz
Rating: PG
Pairing: n/a
Genre: Original Fiction
Summary: What do people do when it's springtime in New York?
A/N: n/a
Archive

It was a beautiful day, Jack thought.

He stood on the street corner, straightening his tie while he waited for the light to change. Around him, the crowd swelled and ebbed like the tide, but he stood firm, not allowing people to push him off the curb too early.

He watched the traffic until just the right moment, reaching up once more to check his tie, and stepped into the street.

There could be no better place to die than New York during the spring, he thought, and the bus, tires and brakes screeching as if in pain, hit him.



Title: Blackmail

Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Snape/Hermione
Genre: Harry Potter
Summary: A power play by Snape puts Hermione in an awkward situation.
A/N: n/a

"Do it," he hissed, "or I can promise you, Miss Granger, that your grade will be far lower than even you can imagine."

"But Professor," she said. She could feel him behind her, the curve of his nose just barely touching her ear. His voice was a maddening whisper.

"My patience grows thin," he said, and she squeezed her eyes shut in humiliation.

It was just a grade, she thought. It wasn't worth it.

A tear slipped down her cheek as her traitorous hand moved to the collar of her robe and began to unfasten it.

Behind her, Snape smiled.




Title: Cake
Author: LauraM/buffyspazz
Rating: PG
Pairing: n/a
Genre: Original Fiction
Summary: Revenge is truly the sweetest thing.
A/N: This is based on a true story - I had a friend who did this where I work!

She crept toward the desk slowly, peering around furtively to make sure she was unobserved. It was usually quite deserted in the office during lunch, but it paid to be careful.

The cake sat there, full of chocolate, creamy goodness, beckoning to her. It was seductive.

With one more look around, she snatched the plate off of her co-workers desk - her nemesis! - and ran for it, a grin tugging at the corners of her mouth.

When she was done, she put the empty plate back on the bitch's desk.

It had been a very fine piece of cake.



Title: Pink

Rating: G
Pairing: n/a
Genre: Original Fiction
Summary: A cat suffers mightily under the affections of Aunt Ethyl.
A/N: n/a
Archive

The cat laid her ears back, as if to protest the indignity of it all. Her tail swished angrily, and her fur crackled against the pink yarn.

"What a nice sight you are in that sweater!" cried Aunt Ethyl cheerfully. Her voice grated on cat and owner alike, and Jennie cringed inwardly, shooting the irritated animal a look of sympathy. You could try to convince Aunt Ethyl that cats didn't like little crocheted clothing, but it was like arguing with God.

With a disdainful look at her owner, the cat leapt from the sofa to find a place to sulk.



Title: Puppy Love
Author: LauraM/buffyspazz
Rating: PG
Pairing: n/a
Genre: Harry Potter
Summary: Snape prepares a potion but has trouble with an ingredient.
A/N: For Annie. :)
Archive

Snape yanked the puppy out of the cage and prepared to add it to the potion. He lifted it threateningly over the cauldron, when it suddenly looked at him and squeaked.

He lowered the small animal and laid it on the table. When he sat down, it came over and licked his face.

By morning, the dog had made itself comfortable on his bed, and Snape counted 743 little dog hairs on his bedspread before giving up.

He sighed, defeated. Now the damn potion would never be finished, and everyone would find out he was turning soft.

Inwardly, he smiled.



Title: Heartache

Rating: G
Pairing: n/a
Genre: His Dark Materials
Summary: Lyra sees someone that makes her remember...
A/N: n/a
Archive

Lyra sat quietly under the tree, reading for tomorrow's lesson.

She looked up after a while, stretching her arms over her head in a satisfying way. A boy passed by, a young man, and she started. Something in the way he carried himself reminded her of Will.

With a sigh, she lowered her head, trying desperately to drive the thought of him from her mind before she cried. Pan sought to comfort her, crawling up to her neck to wrap himself around her and nuzzle her face.

When she thought she was able, she stood up and trudged slowly home.
