Fic Request Meme!

Since I need to be doing some writing anyway, and I have nothing better to do.

Request things at me! Just give me a pairing, a prompt, or both, and I'll write you a short bit of fic. My fandoms are in my interests of course, but as we all know, chief among them is Princess Tutu. I'll probably write for all of them though, and remember, genfic is encouraged as well as pairings.

On Gardening 1/2
Everyone is talking about her, the beautiful new music student with mysterious green eyes. Ahiru doesn't see her for the longest time, only hears snatches of rumors about her. They say she plays piano like no one else, as if her fingers are dancing across the keys. They say her skin is the color of rich dark coffee, that her hair is like spun silk. People say she smiles in a wistful, far-off sort of way, and Ahiru can't help but wonder who she's really smiling at.

She sees her for the first time at rehearsal one day, playing the ballet department's ancient baby grand. The girl is as pretty as everyone says she is, and she finds herself awed by her movements, graceful and subtle, like a bird, in a way. Her plays is just as wonderful, and Ahiru feels almost honored to be able to practice to it, but still, there's something sad about the way the new girl plays, a feeling she can't shake.

When rehearsal is over, she stays behind, hesitantly looking over at the girl, wondering if she should speak, or leave before she embarrasses herself. She's closing the lid of the piano when she looks up at Ahiru, and, inexplicably, it seems, smiles.

"Hello," she says, her voice soft and musical. It reminds her of Miss Edel, almost.

"Uhhm, hi," Ahiru says nervously. She feels silly for staying, now, with the pretty new girl's eyes on her, and no real explanation for what she's doing here. She tries to come up with one in her head, but the other girl speaks, and interrupts her.

"May I help you?" she asks, and that's exactly the question Ahiru's been dreading, because she doesn't have a good answer and the new girl is looking at her and she knows, she just knows she's going to say something stupid.

"Ahh, um, I was just--You see, I was wanting to--Um." She pauses, wracking her brains for something else to say. "Your playing is really pretty!" she blurts out, and the girl smiles.

"Thank you, ah...?"

"Ahiru!" she says quickly. "Um, I mean, my name is Ahiru. What's yours?"

"Anthy," she says, with another opaque smile.

"Anthy..." She likes the way it sounds on her tongue, the way the word itself is like a short breath. Ahiru looks up suddenly, remembering herself. "That's a really pretty name!"

"Thank you," Anthy says. "Do you know what it means?"

Ahiru hesitates for a moment. Should she know? She tries to think of an answer but she's coming up short, and she doesn't want to make the pause any longer than it already is.

"Umm, no? What does it mean."

"It means flower, in Greek."

"Oh, how pretty!"

"Yes," Anthy says, and she can see a far-off look in her eyes, as if she is looking for something Ahiru. "But, you know, it can be a burden as well."

"A burden?"

"Have you ever grown roses?"

Ahiru is a little startled by the question. It seems so strange and out of the blue that for a moment she forgets to answer it, until she sees Anthy's expectant face, and remembers herself.

"Ah, umm, no?"

Anthy smiles.

2/2
"They're beautiful flowers. But they can be difficult to care for."

She looks down at the piano for a moment, as if wondering whether to continue. Her expression is as unreadable as ever, but Ahiru thinks she might see something like sadness written there.

"It is hard to get them to grow in some places, if the soil is too hard and unforgiving. You must nurture them then, forever watching, forever waiting for a reward that may not come."

"Oh..." Ahiru pauses, wondering what to say. "But, roses grow well sometimes, right?"

"They do. Too well, sometimes. They grow so well that they overrun everything else, choking all other life out of your garden, until they, too, are unable to sustain themselves, and die."

"So..." Ahiru hesitates. "Would it be better not to grow roses at all?"

"I thought so, once. I thought, since it seemed to be such a futile effort to grow anything, that it would be better if I kept my garden bare." She looks over at Ahiru, a strange, sad smile on her face. "After all, without roses, there are no thorns either, right?"

"But without anything to grow," says Ahiru. "You miss out on how beautiful flowers can be."

"Exactly." Anthy's smile is almost bright. "And you know, if you let yourself nurture it, any flower can grow beautifully."

Ahiru smiles at her, and, for a moment, Anthy looks almost frightened, as if realizing she said too much. In less than a moment, she has composed herself, is picking up her bag and preparing to leave. Without thinking, she holds out her hand to stop her.

"Yes?" Anthy face is an empty question.

"Miss Anthy," Ahiru says, hand still on her arm. "You're not talking about roses, are you?" Anthy gives a smile, heading towards the door.

"Keep your garden full," says Anthy quietly, as she leaves. "You're like her, anything can grow there."

Re: 2/2
I've never seen Utena, but I'm vaguely familiar with the characters. I love this! The whole rose metaphor is awesome. And the last line is beautiful.

I'd sort of like to see a fic about a background character. Like...not even one of the heart shard/raven!Mytho victims, just a day-in-the-life-of-random-villager-B.

...Yeah, I know, it's a crazy idea. XD

/just a random thought, if you don't mind crossover stuff

I echo Nuit's request for something gen/friendship with Fakir and Autor. ^^ Only for me I'd ... really like something hurt/comforty, if that's okay. **knows some people don't care for the genre and isn't sure what your stand is.** And if it's okay to get so specific on the prompt, I'm kiiind of imagining some freaky scenario where one finds the other knocked out in the Kinkan Cemetery I love cemeteries, though what they're doing getting hurt in a cemetery is beyond me. I just like the creepy imagery. LOL.

Yes, my idea is far more crazy than haleysings's is. XD;

Hello~ I saw your cross-post in the Tutu comm and figured I'd leave some requests as well. ^^

Let's see... what first comes to mind is something general...but genderbended.
If that's too difficult or it's not your cup of tea, then perhaps a fic with raven!Mytho or with Rue and Mytho (*lol shipper hurrhurr*). As for prompts... Maybe something contemplative ("mirror image" comes to mind) for r!Mytho, and for the pairing, let's go with..... bath time. Yes. :D Maybe even combine them all with the genderbending ahahahahaha |D;
