accentuate the positive - a multi-fandom meme  

a multifandom pride meme


In light of Tyler Clementi, this is an all-fandom request meme centered around the theme of positive sexuality attitudes. This includes coming-out stories, rights fights, straight supporters, anything as long as the topic has to do with perception of sexuality, and focuses on good experiences rather than bad ones.

We have to remember that being accepted is still a privilege, not a given. So many people are still dealing with prejudice and bullying and negativity because of their sexual orientation. The fight is not even close to being over.

Leave a comment with a pairing and a prompt, and try to fill as many prompts as you can! Any kind of fanwork is encouraged - fic, art, graphics, picspams, poetry, fanmixes, and anything you can imagine. Any pairing is go - a het pairing is fine as long as the theme is still something to do with non-hetero concepts.

Any kind of put-downs or grossly negative commentary will not be tolerated.

tl;dr - multi-fandom request meme. theme: positive acceptance of the gay. GO!

Re: Sherlock ; Sherlock/John
Dr Watson folded the letter after he'd finished reading it aloud and sighed. Despair sat like a boulder on his heart. "What an evil world we live in, Holmes. They seemed dashed decent fellows, too. It's a pity you can't even respond to Capt Henderson's letter in the negative without casting aspersions on--"

"A serious matter, Waton. A very serious matter."

That was not uttered in the melancholic tone Holmes adopted when he despaired of the world. That was the houndsmaster ready to chase the game.

John Watson stared at his colleague and friend. Holmes' fingers were steepled and pressed to his lips. His eyes were fire.

"Holmes. The man stands accused of murder of three women at the docks. All that will save him from the noose is if you do indeed corroborate his story that he and his -- companion" the word was whispered, "-- Mr. Jacoby, were committing sodomy with each other in the place where inverts are known to habituate."

"Which we know precisely because we too were at that selfsame--"

"Holmes!" Watson glared at Holmes. "Do you have no awareness of what consequences this will bring? It's Henderson's life if you stay silent -- if we stay silent -- and it's his future and reputation, and the future and reputation of Jacoby, and our futures and our reputations, if you take the case. The law--"

"My dear Watson, you have never feared a bad law in your life."

"Even a bad law can lead to ruination. My little practise is nothing, another can have it. My Army pension will be stopped, and there goes my shilling for beer. I can travel to another country as a doctor and start my life over. But can you live with the end of your reputation? Your brother will regard you with contempt as lower than a murderer. Mrs Hudson will curse the day she let the rooms to us. You could go to prison, among men who are in there because of you, who will rejoice at this opportunity for revenge, and the prison guards will scorn to look your way while--"

Only when a thin white hand clasped both of Watson's did he notice that they were shaking.

The only consulting detective in all of London turned all the fire in his eyes on his friend and colleague. "My dear John," he said. "I've had a crueller exile than a few years of hard labour; Her Majesty's prison guards would have much to learn from Professor Moriarty. As for my reputation-" He waved a hand as if dashing away a fly. "I have pleased to keep my amours private, as would any English gentleman. But if my good name now rests solely on the price of an innocent man's life, it is time to lose it." He smiled, a little quick flicker around his lips, and his lids lowered. "You would do well to visit France, my dear man, for an interminable length of stay. I intend to respond to Henderson's plea."

Dr Watson's head dropped. He drew one deep breath. Then he looked up. The same fire burned in his own eyes - though they were possibly a little wetter. He leaned forward.

Holmes met his lover halfway.

"Your bravery shames me," Watson said when he pulled away from the kiss. "I am too old to learn cowardice. I will stay, and give testimony if needed." He smiled. "You'll need an Army boxer at your side in Reading Gaol, if we run into any old friends."

The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for but a moment; the firm line of the lips wavered. But all Holmes said was, "What of the law, my dear fellow?"

Watson grinned like a tiger snarling. "The law? The law is a ass!"

way to prompt exactly what i wanted to write <3
"I know, Percy," Rachel says, and there's a paint smear on her jaw that turns the corners of her wry grin into something comically sad. "You've been dating Nico for months."

He sighs because that's not the point. "But that's different. Or, it could be. I could be bi. That's what I'm trying to say, I'm not - bi, and I'm not straight. That's all." He stuffs his hands into his jean pockets and looks at his toes, wriggling in worn white socks.

"Percy," she says, and he looks up. "I was joking. I meant - I know. Maybe I've always known."

But then, she was the Oracle, he thought stubbornly. She knew everything.

+

"I know," Annabeth sighs, pushing her hair back behind her ear. "I might have been mostly a guy but I know it wasn't enough." Her words are brutally honest, the tiniest bit bitter - they aren't quite back to their old friendship but he feels more comfortable now than when they were dating. They'll get there, he thinks.

Her words, though, light up his face in a blush and he winces. "You're plenty girl, Annabeth," he murmurs.

"See, I'm supposed to take that as a compliment. But it's not." She sighs again - just the tiniest huff of breath - and he knows then what he should have known months ago. She does know. She's known for a long time. And she's wished, in her heart of hearts, that she could have been man enough for him.

He swallows and makes up some excuse and leaves the room, as fast as he can. Why is he always the last to realize these things?

+

"I know," his mother says, and he's almost expecting it this time.

He sighs loudly. "What gave it away? Annabeth going to prom in a tux?" There's a heavy load of sarcasm in his voice.

She laughs lightly and shakes her head. "No, not that, though it made me smile. I've known for a long time."

He gives her a suspicious look. "Longer than Annabeth?"

"Longer than you've known Annabeth."

That's a long time. He doesn't have any idea what to say to that. She takes the shirt he was folding out of his hands and shakes it out, pressing the fabric into a neat, flat bundle with two twists of her hands.

"Mothers know," she says, and he doesn't believe that either.

+

"What, really?"

Nico looks up from his PSP, and Percy had said it as a joke - sort of - at least, he was expecting some sort of snide remark, and they'd laugh it off and continue with their day. But there's honest surprise in Nico's voice, and he's paused his game, giving Percy his full, wide-eyed attention.

Percy feels his heart skip half a beat. "Uh, yeah," he says, almost nervously. "Really really. It isn't - " he cuts himself off with a pressed laugh, feeling his face go red. "Everyone else was being patronizing and telling me they knew like it was this big obvious thing, and I was like, how could you know? I only just figured it out myself."

He fully expects the joke now, the 'well we've been dating for how long?' but Nico's just looking at him, half calculating, half... warm. "I didn't know," he says, simply. "I thought - I guess I thought it wasn't an issue, you just liked who you liked. I kind of felt like the anomaly." Nico's eyes drop and he toys with the joystick on his game system, showing the nerves that Percy feels. "So it's - I'm glad you told me."

Percy feels like this huge weight lifts off of his chest, like he's finally said something important, that someone understands that he has a sexual orientation and it didn't really have much to do with who he was dating, or how long they'd been together, because it only just occurred to him that he was gay, really, and that he'd always been. That all of his life has maybe been leading to this, and that Nico isn't some genderless thing he loves, he's a guy and Percy isn't just okay with that, he fucking loves it.

And maybe everyone did already know that. Maybe it shouldn't've been a big deal. But it makes a difference anyway, having someone listen to him. Having someone believe him. It makes all the difference in the world.

When and Or If
"Mind you, I'm gone for a year--"

"Mmn."

"--and her memories are still fuzzy--"

"Mmn."

"--and we still had to repeat that grade because we weren't there to begin with but try explaining that to a teacher--"

"Ngh."

"--and she still seems to forget I exist, which, I don't know, makes me a little insulted, because, you know--"

Riku gave him an even, slightly bored stare. The one that hinted at his patience finally beginning to teeter awkwardly over a cliff edge. "Sora... I'm not sure what you're talking about."

"My Mom." Sora's fingers dug into the blue-and-white checkered school tie as if it were choking him. "I told her about us last night."

Riku froze. "...and?"

"And," The tie gave away after a particularly hard yank. "She wants to know when we'll be adopting, and or if Kairi will be the surrogate mother."

Riku was suspiciously quiet. Then, "She remembers I'm only seventeen, right?"

"She said, and I quote," Sora's fingers slipped beneath the knot of Riku's own tie, noticing the ashy cast to the cheeks of his boyfriend. "'never too early to start'. This is either an insidious plan to get us to break up or she really wants to be the youngest grandmother on the island. I honestly can't tell. Either way, dinner tonight. At my house." Sora finished undoing the tie and then finally looked at Riku in the eyes and gave him a half-unsure, shy, but hopeful smile. "Now we just have to tell my Dad about us."

Riku stared at him and then cleared his throat. "We've managed to keep existence from collapsing into darkness twice. I think we can handle your Dad. And your Mom. But Sora? I'm not ever asking Kairi to carry our baby."

Percy Jackson ; Percy/Nico
Percy/Nico - he tells Paul before he tells his mom because his mom really liked Annabeth and he knows she'll be fine with it (probably) but he can't shake the worry that she won't be.
Yasmine: Percyfanged_angel on September 30th, 2010 10:12 pm (UTC)
Re: Percy Jackson ; Percy/Nico
He tells Paul first, carefully choosing his moment, waiting for his mom not to be around, waiting until the house is silent and Paul is focused on grading papers.

Paul's shock is expressed in a few rapid blinks and his pen staying pressed to the paper in front of him for a second too long. Percy doesn't have to meet Paul's eyes to know that his stepfather gets the situation completely.

"She'll understand, Percy. She loves Annabeth but that doesn't mean she won't accept anyone else in your life."

Percy knows that 'anyone else' being Hades' son might make a difference, but he lets the silence sink in for a while, making up speeches in his mind that will manage to express the situation perfectly.

When the door opens, Paul gives him an encouraging smile before returning to his papers and Percy is reminded once more that Mr Blowfish's arrival in his mom's life has never been anything other than fortuitous.

Sally is the second person he tells, his voice barely raising above a whisper, and it's not until she hugs him that his worry fades. He's probably been too worried, but he's pretty sure no one in history has ever fawned over Annabeth as much as Sally has, and Percy has barely mentioned Nico much until this summer.

When he returns to Nico, to the place that can't really be called anything other than their home now, his arms wrap around Nico, bodies meeting, welcoming each other, his fingers in Nico's hair, Nico's lips kissing away the smile on Percy's.

He isn't able to relay Sally's invitation to dinner the next day until morning. And he's fine with that.

Re: White Collar ; Neal/Peter/El
"Diana, could you come here a moment?" Peter asked. "Shut the door," he added when she came into his office.

"What's up, boss?" she asked.

"Um, I want to ask you something, but it's personal. You don't have to answer it if you don't want to. It's not work-related. But, er, do you and Christie go to Pride?"

The expression on Diana's face showed Peter that she had not been expecting this kind of question at all.

"Yeah, sure we do. We go every year. Why?"

Peter wondered if his face was turning red. "Well, er, Neal wants to go, and he wants me to go with him."

"Because it's outside the radius of his ankle bracelet? So do you want me to take him? I'd have to ask Christie, I guess, but...."

"No, that's not what I mean," Peter hastily replied. "I mean, he wants me to take him. He wants us to go together. He wants...." He hesitated. "He wants us to come out."

"You don't mean...." Diana stared at her boss. "You do mean. You and Neal are together?"

"Yeah. For a few months now."

"Pardon me for asking, but you're married. What about Elizabeth?"

"Oh, she's fine with the whole thing. We have an arrangement. She and Neal.... Well, they kinda share me, I guess."

"Okay, so what exactly does this have to do with me?" Diana wanted to know.

"Oh, you mean why I called you in here. Well, I just wanted you to know so that if you see me and Neal at Pride, you won't be surprised."

Diana laughed. "All right. I hope I do see you and Neal at Pride."

Name-Calling (but in a good way)
“Baith,” supplied Andrew. “They look like a Baith.”

“Actually they look like two Slayers with bedhead.”

“What are you guys doing?”

“We figured since you and the Buffster have got this new thing going, we’d give it a name.”

“Like Bennifer, but not because neither one of you is named ‘Jennifer’.”

“But one of us is named ‘Ben’?”

“They’d just use the ‘B’ from your name, B.”

“Don’t help them. I beg of you.”

“I like it when you beg.”

“Whoa. TMI,” interjected Dawn.

“How about Fuffy?” Andrew asked.

“Say it again and I will schedule you for training with Janine.”

Andrew gulped.

“Why don’t you use last names?” Giles helpfully suggested.

“Lummers!”

“That’s awful. There’s a reason why we hyphenate. Summers-Lehane. It’s catchy,” said Willow.

“It’s also five years too soon.”

“I was thinking ten myself. And why do you get to go first?”

“So no one smushes it to Lummers.”

Xander snapped his fingers. “Sumhane.”

“Some what?”

“’Sum’ from Summers and ‘hane’ from Lehane.”

“It’s not terrible.”

“It’s too close to Samhain – the Celtic celebration marking Summer’s end,” Willow said.

“Let’s not go there,” said Buffy.

“Maybe we should just still with Faith and Buffy.”

“Or Buffy and Faith.”

“Or the two Slayers that realized their love for each other after years of fighting their feelings, and each other. Darkness and light – one cannot exist without the other.”

Faith rolled her eyes. Andrew was really too much sometimes.

Buffy reached down, twined her fingers through Faith’s and asked, “So... Buffy and Faith - or Faith and Buffy - it is. Now that that’s decided, what movie are we going to be watching?”
