BENEATH THE TABLE, part 2

Another evening.

And another meeting.

The two elflings were hiding beneath the table. With a bag of mice. And a bag of snakes.

Elrond spoke of darkness approaching them. At least he did until a handful of terrified little mice began to scurry out from beneath one of the tables. It took half an hour to rid the room of vermin and to begin again.

Shortly after that, many little snakes began to slither hither and yon. Even small snakes are scary to some and both elves and men began to cry out in alarm and run from the room until only Elrond and two small hidden elflings remained.

Elrond spoke to the unseen children. “I thank you for rescuing me this time but I shall require your attendance at all of my meetings from now on if this ever happens again.”

From that evening forward, the sons of Elrond were content to study some of Master Erestor’s history after dinner. Sometimes they did their mathematics. They’d even play with Arwen if pressed into it. They drank imaginary tea and danced with her dolls now and then.

Anything, it seemed, was better than a meeting in the Hall of Fire.

BENEATH THE TABLE, part 1

Elladan and Elrohir hid beneath the table in the Hall of Fire, trying to be silent as well as invisible. They wanted to see what exactly went on when ‘important guests’ came to visit their father, who always sent them to their room directly after dinner was done.

Soon the room filled with both elves and men, who talked of things that sounded even more boring than Master Erestor’s histories.

“I’m glad Papa sends us to bed,” Elladan whispered to Elrohir. “It’s a wonder that they all don’t die of boredom.”

“We can fix that,” Elrohir whispered with a wink…

SMOKED TURKEY DAY


November 24, 2013

“Have we ever had a real Thanksgiving?” Sam asked Dean as they ate burgers from a diner they’d passed on the way back to the bunker.

“Sure, back when we were…” Dean stopped and thought. “Not really. We usually just had turkey sandwiches or something from the store. You know how Dad was about holidays.”

“Since we have a kitchen here and all this stuff, why don’t we have the real thing this year?”

“Sammy, do you know how to cook turkey?”

“How hard can it be? People make them every year.”

*

November 28, 2013

The Winchesters stood outside the Men of Letters bunker, rubbing their watery eyes and trying to breathe around coughs.

“Who knew that burning turkey could make so much smoke? We’ve torched lots of bones and they never smoked like that,” Dean managed to gasp out.

“We were burning them, Dean. We weren’t trying to cook them!”

“Obviously we don’t need to be trying that again. Ganking Demons is less dangerous and a lot less smoky. What d’ya say we find a nice Denny’s or something?”

Sam grinned. “Works for me!”

And off they went in search of the perfect Thanksgiving dinner.

A FINE END

Londo Mollari was glad that life was not fair. He’d had more than he deserved but all Centauri did. Centauri were a spoiled and selfish people. That was one thing he’d learned from that damnable G’kar.

Come to think of it, almost everything he knew that made him a better man, he’d learned from G’kar. The Narn was the one truth in his life. G’kar never made things look better than they were and never lied to gain his favor or to spare his feelings.

Damn it all! How could this be? After all he’d done and all he’d gone through, he was indebted to the most aggravating person in the entire galaxy, maybe the entire universe. Wasn’t this a fine end for a man such as himself?

He took a drag from the bottle that was never far from his hand. Damn right it was a fine end indeed.

AT LAST

Oropher wandered the shores of Aman alone much of the time. He thought about his son, his only son. How had Thranduil fared since he died all those many years ago? He stopped the tall ships when they came into port but none seemed to know Thranduil’s fate.

Elrond and Galadriel arrived and a few years later, his grandson, Legolas, arrived with a dwarf, of all things! But his son was still conspicuously absent.

Then one day he saw a ship on the horizon, the first one in a long, long time. He made his way to the dock and waited. Celeborn disembarked with another elf, but the other elf was too far to the side and Oropher couldn’t see his face.

Then he heard him speak. “The first thing I shall do is find my father. I have missed him these many long years.”

Thranduil cried tears of joy.

SWEET SUNLIGHT

I never did like winter. I wanted to be in the sun, to feel its warm caress on a summer day. People wonder why I chose Sam, why I let Eric go. Yes, I did love Eric. And he loved me after his fashion, but in the end, I think it might have just been my love for the sun that made me let him go to his new wife, his new queen.

Sam is like a summer day. He is warm and sunny and with him, I can still live in the sweet sunlight.

How I love the light.

He may have conquered them but they’d certainly won over a part of him that Hephaistion struggled to understand. Every day they stayed here in Babylon, Alexander became less and less the Macedonian king and more a prince of Persia.

“So will you marry one of the princesses?”

“Yes. It will please the people and it will please me.”

“Stateira is a comely girl and very bright.”

“I’m glad you approve. You will be marrying her sister at the same time.”

A GRIMM TOAST


“So what are you thankful for, Nick?” Monroe asked as each person around their little table said what they were most thankful for in the previous year.

Nick looked startled and didn’t answer for a long moment. “I am thankful for being a Grimm.”

Since at least half of the people at the table were Wesen, they all groaned aloud.

“Why, for goodness sake?” Monroe asked him.

“Before I knew who I was, I had no idea that people like you existed and now that I do, I can’t imagine how dull life would be without a blutbad and a fuchsbau to hang out with.”

“You do know you’re supposed to hunt people like us?” Rosalee asked as she passed a bowl to Monroe.

“Well, you’re supposed to eat people like me, so we’re even.”

“Indeed we are,” Monroe raised his glass. “To progress and peace.”

They all toasted that.

FOR ARWEN

He would always be haunted by the memories of her. There was no place in all of Eru’s creation that he would not hear her voice or see her face. She had been his sun and his moon for all these many years. Though she was far away, he’d known when her voice stopped, when her light went out. There would never, in the rest of time, be a joy that was not tempered by her absence, by her loss.

He tossed a pebble in the sea as he gazed toward the east, toward Arda.

“Goodbye, my child. Rest well.”

Rico said something unintelligible; Kowalski translating, “He wants a new wife. Malibu Barbie is pretty. Or twenty pounds of C4. It’s pretty too. And I want some new scientific stuff. A Geiger counter. A nuclear reactor as well if you can find one.”

“What do you want, Skipper” Private asked.

“I wish that the whole world could live in peace through the year. Or maybe twenty-five pounds of fish. That would work.”

Garibaldi laughed despite himself.

“Do you recall when we worked on your motorcycle?”

Garibaldi nodded. He’d never actually expected to get the motorcycle restored but Lennier had taken care of that.

“It would be quite pleasurable to ride it again. Don’t you agree?”

“I do. Let me get dressed first.”

“Dammit, Cas! You’re not an angel anymore. You can’t just appear like before.”

“Then how am I talking to you?”

Dean saw the tablet on the table when he moved closer and he saw Cas looking confused on the screen. Dean shook his head at Castiel.

“There you are! Where are you by the way?”

“Four, I think. He’s never met anyone like you, obviously.”

She smiled and said, “I think he’s never met anyone like Nick.”

“Nick?” Monroe was incredulous. “You think he --? Nick? Really?” He shook his head, cutting into a slice of tofurkey.

“Oh, I don’t think he knows it. And I’m pretty sure Nick doesn’t know.”

Monroe blushed furiously. “And certainly don’t want to know. No way.”

I was late getting back from surgery. I’d had several emergencies. I found Mycroft sitting in the parlor with Holmes.

“Mycroft has come with an invitation for us.”

I raised a brow. Holmes did not socialize at all so I didn’t see why he seemed so excited.

“We are invited to Buckingham Palace to meet her Royal Highness, Queen Victoria.”

I was thinking of VR shot into the wall of Holmes’ bedchamber. Mycroft smiled happily at me. It seemed that even he went out of his way to please Sherlock Holmes.

And he had done well this time.

Very well.

“And I’m going back for some grape jelly and strawberry preserves,” Pip put in as he laid his burden on the table.

“What is all this?” Frodo asked them.

“Since we are all so happy to be back in the Shire, Rosie Cotton thought a meal to celebrate our thankfulness might be good idea,” Merry told him.

“And we all agreed,” Pippin said as Sam arrived with the meats and pickles.

“So here we are,” Sam said as he patted Frodo on the shoulder.

Frodo smiled, something rare for him since his return. “I am glad you are all my friends.”

Daniel sighed. He wondered where she was going to try to drag him this week. She had a new idea almost every week and for some reason, General Landry seemed perfectly happy to let her gate all over the galaxy on a whim.

“Daniel! There you are! I have an idea. My father used to--”

“Forget it, Vala. Not going this time. How do you get Landry agree to let you go anyway?”

She grinned and leaned down over him so her face was right in front of his. “I tell him you’ve discovered something worth checking into.”

Daniel did a facepalm. “I might have known. When do we leave?”

He did it though.

He married a woman half his age and moved to Sussex Downs. He even wrote a book about bees.

He says he is very happy in his new life. I’m glad one of us is. I miss him so.

THE CROWN JEWEL AFFAIR

Young Henry Jones Junior was almost asleep when he remembered that he’d promised the young English boy he’d met that they could try sneaking into The Tower of London and try to see the Crown Jewels. He was still dressed so he threw back the covers and slipped out of the quiet hotel undetected.

It took him a bit to get to the Tower but he managed to confiscate a bicycle that made the trip much faster. His new friend was waiting outside the gate in the shadows for him.

“H-h- hello, Henry,” the boy said as Indy hid his bike in the bushes. The two of them set off, speaking only in whispers as they made their way through the tangle of buildings that made up the palace complex.

Henry was terrified when a guard stopped them. “Sir, aren’t you out a bit late?”

Henry’s companion spoke to the guard, more nervous than afraid. “D-don’t tell Mum. She’d k-kill me!”

The guard winked. “Your secret’s safe, Your Highness.”

They continued on their adventure and did indeed see the Crown Jewels. It was years later that he figured out that the boy he’d known became King George VI of England.

“I miss you as much as I did then.”

Still nothing.

The early summer morning was bright and a little cool. It wasn’t yet late enough for the heat of the day before to last through the night. The world was a bright green today, the color it was before the summer heat dulled the grass.

“It was a day like that you left, you know.”

Nothing.

“I love you and I’ll love you forever. Do you know that?”

I saw it, the sun shining off a tiny drop of water on a leaf in one of the oaks. It looked like the sparkle of a diamond in the light. I smiled and wiped the tear that fell down my cheek.

“I’ll be there someday, when it’s time. You’ll wait for me, won’t you?” I whispered to the morning light.

Private poked himself in the tummy and noted that he was more fluffy and squishy than tough and hard. But to Kowalski, he nodded. “Tough and hard, yes.”

“So let’s watch something else.” They flipped the channel to a human saying, ‘That’s a fact, Jack.’ Kowalski shivered and changed the channel back. “Even I’m not tough enough for that!”
