Word Count: 768 words
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of the groups, songs, music, lyrics or anything of the wonderful oldies genre, nor do I own any part of Gilmore Girls.
Warnings/Spoilers: never happened Just my idea of a happy afternoon in the future that should have been.
Summary: Rory dances more than she cleans
Author's Note: I love the Oldies. I have no idea if Rory does or if Stars Hollow still holds their dance marathons for Tristan and Rory to participate and I have no clue if Emily enjoys the Ronettes. In my mind, I think maybe, yes, but in reality, I have no idea. Also, super sorry I don't yet know how to LJ cut on my phone. At least this one isn't too terribly long.



Rory Gilmore found it impossible to clean in silence. She chose her music according to her mood, and knew from the moment she woke up that morning, it was an oldies kind of day. She danced her way through the kitchen with her cleaner, paper towels, the Crew Cuts, Platters, and Drifters. Rory was making her way to the living room with her duster when the playlist hit a few of the girl groups of the time and she turned the music up a little louder. She loved the Chantels and the Supremes but the Ronettes were closest to her heart after a memorable weekend spent with her grandmother.

Rory was in the den by the time Bobby Darin and Sam Cook showed up and she could not help but dance. Rory had just finished singing Hot Diggity with Perry Como when she heard the first notes of Shake, Rattle and Roll. Bill Haley was a man that could always make her get up and dance. She turned the volume up a little more to hear the song better. What she hadn't heard was Tristan entering their home.

He watched her during Hot Diggity and grinned as he heard her singing along with Perry Como. When she turned the stereo up louder, Tristan decided to dance with her. He endered the room and walked over to her, made certain to keep time with the beat, grabbed her hand and spun her around.

Rory screamed and laughed a second later when she realized it was Tristan. "You sure you wanna?"

"Definitely. We have not participated in the annual dance marathon every year we've been together for nothing, right?" He winked at her before he spun her again and continued to dance.

"Right. I'm so glad you learned how to Jitterbug properly or this could be going completely wrong right now." She smiled and laughed while they danced to Bill Haley and his Comets.

"Whew, that song is a little longer than I remember."

"Suck it up, old man."

"Old man?" Tristand furrowed his brows.

"Yes, if you remember correctly, you are a little older than I am, sweetheart. A few days, couple weeks or a few months, it doesn't matter. You're still older. Especially with these birthdays coming along much sooner than I remember." She looked at the clock before bringing her gaze back to Tristan "Hey, what brings you home so early today?"

"I missed my wife so I left."

"Just left? No note, no nothing?"

"No, of course not I wouldn't have a job if I left without anote or letting anyone know. Besides, everyone knows my number and if there's an emergency they will nt hesitate to call." He gave Rory a hug and kiss before smiling at her. "Okay, didn't you ban that song from our house...and car and truck? And everywhere music can possibly play?"

"No. Well, yes, and you agreed with me, if I remember correctly. You said the lyrics wouldn't work in today's world. So, I did in fact ban the song for a minute or two, but it's got such a good beat to it, Mr. Clark, that I simply cannot ignore it any longer." Rory grinned.

"The score is too high and we can't get rid of it even though you are not a fan of the lyrics."

"I like the chorus. I love shaking, rattling, and rolling."

"And you look good shaking and rattling and rolling. I thought the fact that he expected you to be in the kitchen cooking for him and the various other things he sings, made you want to toss the entire album." Tristan wrapped his arms around Rory's waist and began swaying along with the Flamingos.

"I said it's fine. I'm over it. And I don't know what you're doing because I need to finish cleaning before my husband gets home so I can surprise him with a beautiful, shiny house. You are distracting me and he is not going to be happy when he gets home at his usual time this evening." She leaned close and whispered, "Plus, he carries a gun every day."

"I think he'll be okay with a partly shiny house as long as he can dance with his wife the rest of the afternoon." Tristan tilted his head and asked, "What do you say? Are we dancing to the oldies the rest of the afternoon?"

"Yes, we're dancing to the oldies for the rest of the afternoon. I'll have to clean later." Rory giggled, tossed her dust rag on the bookcase and danced away the afternoon with her husband.

Oliver wanted to hurt someone. No, he needed to hurt someone for what they've done to her. With his jaw clenched, he watched and waited for her to open her eyes.

“Yeah?”

Weekend Challenge Drabbles ~ Arrow, Olicity, 100 words, 4 stories

Title: Clumsy
Author: weakmoments
Fandom: Arrow
Parings/Characters: Oliver/Felicity
Prompt: Accidentally Falling #9 prompt in 1_million_words
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of Arrow
Warnings/Spoilers: never happened
Summary: Felicity was not the most graceful woman around
Author's Note: The instant I saw the prompt I thought about Felicity falling down and Oliver catching it.

He heard a crash along with a yelp and hurried down the stairs. “Felicity?”
She stood and faced Oliver. “Yes?”
He grinned. “You okay” he asked, knowing she had fallen.
“Yep.” Felicity could feel the heat burning her cheeks. She knew she should have practiced walking in her new shoes. Obviously, they were slick on the bottom, but she hadn't had a chance to break them in.
“Ready to go?”
“Yes, I am” she said as she smiled and slowly walked to him.
He took her hand and whispered in her ear. “Don't worry, I won't let you fall again.”



Title: Falling
Author: weakmoments
Fandom: Arrow
Parings/Characters: Oliver/Felicity
Prompt: Accidentally Falling #9 prompt in 1_million_words
Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of Arrow
Warnings/Spoilers: never happened
Summary: Oliver hadn't meant to fall
Author's Note: My second thought for this prompt was how, just maybe, Oliver Queen accidentally fell for Felicity Smoak.


She was his coworker, friend, and partner, but the instant he said those three words, his world shifted. She was the last person he ever pictured himself falling for, but as hard as he tried, he couldn't stop the inevitable. They were together almost constantly and she was just so damned smart. And she made him laugh. For Oliver, moments of laughter were few and far between until the day he met her. He hated the way his heart ached when she wasn't around. He had to do something.

"Felicity, would you like to go out to dinner with me?”

Word Count: 100
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of Arrow
Warnings/Spoilers: never happened
Summary: She just couldn't fix her hair
Author's Note: First thought for this prompt was Felicity trying unsuccessfully to put her hair up in a messy bun.

She envied women that could put their hair up in a messy bun in one fell swoop. Felicity tried and always missed a chunk of her hair. It didn't help that her new dress had strands down the back which she grabbed along with her hair. “Ugh.”
“Need help?”
“What?” She turned and saw Oliver smiling at her.
“Do you need any help?”
“And you're so perfect, you can put my hair in a bun?” She let go and tilted her head.
“Probably.” He saw her look of frustration and explained, “Thea.”
“Thanks.” Her hair was up in ten seconds.

Warnings/Spoilers: never happened
Summary: Oliver enjoyed watching Felicity
Author's Note: Second thought for this prompt was Oliver watching her trying to fix her hair.


He searched for Felicity and finally found her on the steps, her hands in her hair. Oliver smiled as he realized she was fiddling, rather unsuccessfully, with her hair, trying to get it in a bun. He watched her a few moments and could only focus on her beauty. Oliver was thankful he surprised her earlier with the dress.
Oliver asked if she needed help and smiled when she let him know she had no faith in his hairdressing skills. He reminded her he has a sister and Oliver had Felicity's hair in a messy bun in ten short seconds.

Title: Five Times Felicity Lied, and One Time She Didn't Even Try
Author: weakmoments
Fandom: Arrow
Parings/Characters: Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen, mentions Moira, Diggle and Sara
Prompt: five times Felicity lied and one time she didn't even try from 1_million_words
Word Count: 1509 words
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of Arrow
Warnings/Spoilers: spoilers for all of season two of Arrow.
Summary: Felicity was good at lying about whatever she felt or didn't feel about Oliver, or was she?
Author's Note: I love all things Olicity. I've also enjoyed writing these Arrow stories a lot more than I thought I would. I think it is because I tend to ramble and say the complete wrong thing like Felicity does at the most inappropriate times. :D Looks like I only finished two of my 5+1 challenges for the month, but I think I'm going to work on some more the rest of the year! Way too inspiring not to! Here it is and I hope you enjoy! Oh, and everything that is italicized and in quotes comes directly from the show even if I can't remember exact episodes, other than the finale. The last section is from that wonderful scene in the season finale so I hope everyone has watched it! :D

Fic 5+1 Challenge, When Calls The Heart, G

Title: Five times that Elizabeth fails at cooking for Jack, and the one time she succeeds.
Author: weakmoments
Fandom: When Calls The Heart
Parings/Characters: Jack and Elizabeth, Abigail, mentions Bill Avery
Prompt: 5 + 1 prompt in 1_million_words
Word Count: 1927 words
Disclaimer: I in no way own any part of When Calls The Heart
Warnings/Spoilers: Never happened...or at least, not yet! And anyone that watches the show knows Elizabeth cannot cook.
Summary: Elizabeth tries her best to cook and bake for Jack but no matter how hard she tries, it never seems to turn out the way she planned.
Author's Note: For those that have never watched When Calls The Heart, it is a wonderful show that aired it's first season on the Hallmark Channel. We have a season two but they haven't started filming yet and there's of course no return date. Elizabeth is played by Erin Krakow (From Army Wives), Jack is Daniel Lissing (from Last Resort), and Abigail is played by Lori Loughlin that we all probably remember as Aunt Becky on Full House! Of course, I remember her from way back on The Edge Of Night. :D There's lots of fan vids up on youtube. There was also a movie which had the dreamy Stephen Amell in it as a Mountie and you can find that at your local Walmart. If you enjoyed shows from back in the day like Little House where things were simpler then you'll love this show! It takes place in 1910 and Jack is a Mountie. :D Michael Landon JR and Brian Bird are the creators. Anyway, here's my 5 + 1!

Goals for May

Hi! Well, I participated (sorta) in Camp NaNoWriMo and it has thrown my year off completely! I forgot May was right after April until I looked at the date this morning! LOL Yeah, I know, I should pay more attention. :D I posted this first in my NaNo lj peasluvngiggles but I figure since this is my writing one, I'd post here too!

I did post my goals for May this morning over at nanoljers in the sign up post. And here we go!

1. Will write at least 1,000 words a day for a count of at least 31,000.
Now, I would love to write more of course because I bet I'm at least 100,000 behind if I have any hope of hitting my goal of 1,000,000 words this year. Okay, the numbers make me nauseous so I'm going on to the next goal.

2. Will get the living room cleaned and rearranged so I can get the couch and chair from my Grandma's house.
My Grandma passed away on March 1, which happened to be her 95th birthday. It's still really hard because I was spending 4 days a week with her taking care of her. Well, anyway, I've been helping my Mom and Aunt sort through and clean everything at her house and figuring out what Grandma wanted to do with everything in her house. Some things she did mention to me so I made sure to tell everyone about that. Well, Mom and Aunt Marsha asked me if I wanted the couch and chair in the den. I of course said yes as I looked around my living room and realized I have no idea where to put them! So, I must figure out how to rearrange everything so I can fit the couch and chair in here. Oh, and I have got to take a picture of both so that I can share how cool they are! :D Probably from the 50s or 60s and the arms are flat and like extra places to sit. They are sooooo comfortable. As long as I can remember, I sat in the chair or on the couch whenever I was at Grandma and Granddaddy's so I have a feeling that is why they asked if I wanted them. The couch is the one I used to fall asleep on when Grandma would take her nap in the afternoons, even when I never meant to fall asleep! LOL So anyway, I must rearrange so I can get them.

3. Will sort my writing and find some place to write instead of the desk in the bedroom which sucks out all creativity. Yeah, I need a place to write. I write while sitting on the couch in the living room but I tend to fall asleep. And it just doesn't work out write because I've got all sorts of stuff all different places. I need to get my Civil War books in one area and my notes and everything. I need to sort my other books too because they're all over the place. Which leads right to number four!

4. Will clean and paint the old chest of drawers in order to make it a new bookcase.
Nevermind. No more chest of drawers. Long story.


Okay, there it is. My list of goals and their explanations. :D Hopefully May goes a little better than the rest of the year has so far. I'll make sure to pop in here and update my counts and everything! *waves*

Peace, Love, and Giggles,
Deanna
