Phantom of the Opera, Eric/Meg, Never good enough
Meg loves Christine, but she also hates her – hates how she's had Erik's undivided attention since the start, all those years and oceans ago in Paris, and still does now despite the fact that she's chosen pretty, bland Raoul over her Angel of Music long ago.

And here's Meg, trying so hard – on the stage every night, singing her heart out, and in his office and his quarters, offering tea and distraction and comfort – but nothing she does is ever good enough, or even leaves an impression.

"That'll be all, Miss Giry," Erik says, casually dismissing her without even looking up from his paperwork, and if Meg was capable of violence, she'd scream and shout and burn the whole of Coney Island down just to have him see her for once.

Labyrinth, Jareth/Sarah, He returns at night
The air feels different in the mornings after Jareth visits: a crisp, green sensation, like wind blowing over leaves and stone and icy water, regardless of the actual weather. Sarah rolls sideways on her bed at dawn and buries her face in a pillow that bears a faint and fading trace of ozone and feathers; that scent and the touch of the Labyrinth in the air are the only signs that anyone had come to visit, let alone shared wine and kisses and slept beside her, and for an aching moment she wishes...

But then she sighs, and shuffles through her shoebox apartment in search of coffee and her laptop, and submerges herself back into mundane life rather than resent his absence; she has her responsibilities and deadlines as Jareth has his own, and neither wants to risk their hard-won peace by dragging its terms into the light of day.
Asoiaf/Thor crossover, Loki/Sansa, arranged but happy wedding
She knows they whisper in the Southlands, half in scorn and half in fear, of the kind of queen who would consent to wed and bed the Great Other's bastard, and join her House to that encroaching darkness. But she is a Stark before she is queen; she knows the cruelties of ice cannot match the cruelties of men, and her family count winter as foe and ally both – and so she says to anyone that dares to ask her.

He himself asked her only once – the two of them draped in furs and blankets and sipping mead before the fire, long after the Long Night had ended – and what she told him was something entirely different: bastard or no, monster or otherwise, he spins a story better than any minstrel she's ever known, and he makes her laugh.

(This is an amazing crack pairing. Hopefully I made it work...)

Asoiaf/Thor crossover, Loki/Sansa, she sings for him
The whispers are furtive, if plentiful, of what depravities that monster from beyond the Wall subjects his too-young Stark wife to. So when he doesn't bother with subtlety, as he informs her over dinner that she will join him in his chamber that night, the bannermen at the other tables turn away, shuddering, and make a point of not listening any more.

Perhaps if they weren't trying so hard not to, later that evening they would hear gentle Southron songs of chivalry and romance from behind the "monster's" door.

Asoiaf/Thor crossover, Loki/Sansa, befitting a God
“We’re not gods,” Loki says,”just very long lived monsters.”
He looks like a tall pale man, rather than the Frost Giant aspect he calls jotun, but if he means to discourage Sansa, his words have the opposite effect. The gods have always ignored her; men have misused her, and the only people who have treated her kindly are those who other men name monsters.
Sailor Moon, Haruka/Michiru, dinner
Part of being a professional musician on Michiru's level is maintaining contact with the right parts of society: the ones who pay for tickets and donations to keep orchestras and concert halls in the black. Haruka hated the artificiality of it all at first; hated biting her tongue while Michiru gently and politely redirected insulting conversational threads into equally offensive but more financially productive directions; hated the improbable clothes, the uncomfortable shoes, and the score or clashing perfumes; hated the way even the food at charity dinners and fancy restaurants seemed to ooze self-satisfied superiority.

She still hates all those things, but she's learned to let her anger go and wait for the moment Michiru meets her eyes and nods, and they slip away, laughing, to mount Haruka's motorcycle and roar off through the night: two princesses turned back into ordinary women in search of cheap, greasy takeout and the lived-in comfort of their own home.
Jurassic World, Claire/Owen, if I am a fifth of whiskey, you're the champagne/ if you're a wildflower, I'm a grenade
Jurassic World, Claire/Owen, mad love
Jurassic World, Claire/Owen, let's just unzip your religion down

Orphan Black, Donnie,

A human being's made of more than air
With all that bulk, you're bound to see him there
Unless that human bein' next to you
Is unimpressive, undistinguished
You know who...

Cellophane
Mister Cellophane
Shoulda been my name
Mister Cellophane
'Cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there...

She can admit now that in the years of PTA meetings, soccer games and homework checking, she'd taken Donnie for granted. He became transparent: just another body to keep clothed and fed, to watch tv with, and, about once a week, do other things with.

Now that he’d killed to protect her (and still needed her to help clean up the mess), she saw Donnie for what he really was, for what he’d always been: sweet, loyal, and (most importantly) hers.

MCU, Bruce/Pepper, propriety
None of this is right, Bruce thinks, as he watches Pepper zip up her skirt and step into her heels, putting on the face of the perfectly proper and professional CEO that she is. This arrangement they have, the way Tony beams at them in willing endorsement... no one would understand and Bruce thinks he should probably be ashamed, or at least embarrassed.

But when Pepper kisses his cheek as she goes, her manicured nails trailing across his skin, Bruce realizes that he simply doesn't care.

BtVS, Buffy/Tara, you are not alone in here
Buffy was brought back to a world that was hard and cold and broken, and even surrounded by her friends, she had never felt so alone. They couldn't understand why she wasn't happy, why she wasn't the same, and sometimes all Buffy wanted to do was crawl under the covers and hide from all of the ugliness.

Tara asked for nothing - not for Buffy to be better, not for her to be the same as she used to be, not for her to do better or to be better - and instead just offered to be there, to listen, and her smile made Buffy feel like maybe one day, she could be happy again.

The Vampire Diaries, Alaric/Isobel, Isobel is somehow resurrected
Ric can't believe his eyes, she's standing in his study 3 months after his fiance and his babies are murdered, but surely it's the bourbon playing tricks on him.

She's smiling at him, his dead un-dead alive-again wife, and she looks a little nervous - since when is Isobel nervous about anything?

He approaches her, his hands out, as if to test that she's not a mirage, and despite anger and violence and betrayal, he collapses into her embrace when he reaches her, desperate for a familiar touch.

Teen Wolf, Theo/Stiles, Stiles was always the one Theo really wanted
"So be happy I'm finally leaving Beacon Hills, that's what you always wanted, right Stiles?" Theo asked as he actually wonders why he is even asking this to Stiles and not just get right on that bus, be welcomed by those inviting double doors that parted and leave this life behind.

"No, please don't go, you have always been the one I really wanted!" Stiles suddenly exclaims.

"That's funny, because..." Theo says after smirking to the bus driver and shrugging his shoulders as in letting him know he is not going to board the bus, and grabs Stiles to kiss him hard. "YOU were always the one I really wanted too." all the while the double doors close and the bus drives off to its intended destination.

Arrow, Oliver/Shado, guilt
Teen Wolf, Malia/Scott, more than a friend
The Vampire Diaries, Elena

I touch the fire and it freezes me
I look into it and it's black
Why can't I feel, my skin should crack and peel
I want the fire back
It's 57 years before she wakes, and she's changed, as much as her friends who have lived long, linear lives have.

Caroline finds her staring into the fire at the Salvatore manor one rainy afternoon, lost in thoughts of why and how and what if.

At the sound of her name she startles out of her revery and turns, puts on a smile, images of that fire consuming her immortal body pushed to the back of her mind.

Once Upon a Time, Emma/Hook, this is how you remind me of what I really am
Teen Wolf, Boyd/Erica/Isaac, if I stay here, trouble will find me, if I stay here, I'll never leave
Erica keeps pleading with him, but Isaac can't—“I can't leave just yet. I have … a purpose here.”—and when she realizes he means it, her heartbeat stutters and her jaw clenches.

“Come find us later if you can,” Boyd says, and Isaac promises although he knows deep inside that a purpose doesn't equal a future.
The Martian, Beth Johannsen/Melissa Lewis, what happens in space stays in space
When the food runs low and the air is running out, they will die and Beth will live on alone.

She can’t look at them, especially Chris, who’s starting to feel like home, like the future, but the weight of this desperate, dark fate is too much to carry on her own. In the infinite night of space, Lewis comes to her, holding her as they drift weightless and catching her tears as they float free, to whisper soothing lies that it will never come to that but she’d be strong enough if it did.


(This event didn't make it into the movie, so just in case... In the book, the crew decides that if anything goes wrong, they choose Beth to survive and complete the mission, since she's the smallest and will need the least amount of food, fuel, air, etc.)

(Apologies for the evil scene)

"You never really chose me, Niklaus, it was always some other one..." Aurora says as she holds Cami in front of her ex like a shield.

"Talia, Katarina, Elena for your bloodbags so I've heard, even sister Rebekah sometimes and certain blonde named Caroline? And now this... Camille..." She sums up Klaus's Women of the Centuries as she displays her fangs and plunges deep into Cami's neck, only to maim her so bad there's not a speck left of the female that was Camille O'Connell.

"Mmmm, what do you know? Revenge is sweet." Aurora says as she licks her bloodstained lips...

The Hour/London Spy, Freddie Lyon/Bel Rowley & Danny Holt, their son ran away as a teen but they only find out where he is and his new surname when he's splashed all over the papers.

[Would require fudging of timelines]
Star Trek, Jim Kirk, terrible chat up lines
Kirk rarely bothers with lines, trying the usual conversation starters about current events or the weather first.

But his favorite one is "If you were a phaser, you'd be set on stunning."

If McCoy is within earshot, he always snorts & rolls his eyes.

Downton Abbey, Molesley/Baxter, courage
The Man from UNCLE (2015), Gaby/Ilya, it took you long enough
“I can be charming,” he says, “in Russian.”
Gaby, who has seen no proof of Ilya being charming in either Russian or English, quirks an eyebrow and tells him to show her.
His demonstration involves no language at all, but leaves Gaby feeling rather pleased with herself.

Great prompt!
