Advent 19, Good Things, Panik, Linke/Juri (ish), G

Title: Good Things
Author: Beren
Fandom: Panik
Pairing: could see it as Linke/Juri if you wanted to
Rating: G

Juri was not the most likely of them to have a thing for Christmas. Linke was almost sure that anyone outside the band would have said Jan or Franky would be the one to go mad at the happy season, but they would have been wrong. Sweets and other bad things that Juri avoided the rest of the year always started turning up all over the place at the beginning of December. By about the twentieth day such things had reached epic proportions. As Linke polished off another Lebkucken he had to smile; it was good seeing Juri so happy.

Advent 18 - Wrapping, Tokio Hotel, none, G

Title: Wrapping
Author: Beren
Fandom: Tokio Hotel
Pairing: none
Rating: G

Bill grinned as he watched the chaos in the middle of his and Tom's living room. Why the idea of all four of them buying the staff and crew gifts together had ever seemed like a good plan, Bill couldn't think, but it was entertaining. Tom was sitting in the middle of a pile of wrapping paper with a bow on his forehead (Georg's doing); Georg had cellotape in his hair (Tom's doing) and Gustav had his head in his hands, despairing that any of the wrapping would ever be done. Bill decided maybe it was time to take charge.

Advent 17 - Winter, Blood Ties, none, G

Title: Winter
Author: Beren
Fandom: Blood Ties
Pairing: none
Rating: G

One of the best things about winter, in Henry's opinion, was that the nights were longer. There was not so much flesh on display, but, especially as Christmas approached, the long regal dresses of the women and the long heavy coats of the men reminded him of the past. For some it might have been depressing, but he revelled in the darkness and who he had once been, and he loved winter.

Fires and laughter and blood heavy with alcohol and spices; these were the things the chill in the air made him remember and it always made him smile.

Advent 16 - Indulgence, WK, Omi/Aya, R

Title: Indulgence
Author: Beren
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz
Pairing: Omi/Aya (unrequited)
Rating: R

Omi lay back on his bed, legs spread, completely naked. He didn't allow himself to indulge very often, there were too many sharp eared people in the house, but it was the holiday season and he felt like giving himself a gift. Letting his fingers trail down his torso he wrapped them around his cock and began to stroke.

It felt so good and his mind filled with images of the person he had loved for so long, but dared not tell. It was scant minutes before he was bucking into his hand with one name on his lips: "Aya."

Advent 15 - Presents, Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, G

Title: Presents
Author: Beren
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: G

Draco looked at the two gifts on the table. One was very expensive and refined, the other he had made himself in a fit of insanity. One said I am rich and sophisticated, the other said ... other things. He didn't know which one to wrap. They had agreed, one present only, kind of a challenge, and Draco had to choose.

He didn't want to get their first Christmas wrong.

Reaching out he picked up the expensive present. He had it half wrapped before he stopped and pushed it aside. This was for Harry and he wrapped the other instead.

Advent 14 - Joe's, Highlander, none, G

Title: Joe's
Author: Beren
Fandom: Highlander
Pairing: none
Rating: G

Joe's had changed hardly at all as Richie walked in wondering what he would find. His dark emo hair cut and young trendy clothes really didn't fit in, in Seacouver, but when he had boarded the plane in Tokyo it hadn't been a planned thing, just a sudden decision, and Mitchel Ritchie had very little in common with the original Richie Ryan.

"Sorry, son," Joe said as he sat down at the bar, "but I'm going to need to see some ID."

"Oh, I'm a lot older than I look," he said with a smile and pulled his shades off.

Advent 13 - Unpredictable, Merlin, Merlin/Arthur, PG

And no, I haven't seen tonight ep yet :)

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Beren
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Rating: PG

It was the Winter Solstice; a day when magic was in the air no matter what Uther decreed; a day when Merlin could not predict what his would do. Gaius had told Arthur he was ill in bed, but what that plan had missed was that Arthur cared and so Arthur had come to his room.

"Merlin."

He shuddered as he heard Arthur's voice. His magic was moving under his skin, he couldn't stop it, and it loved Arthur as much as he did.

"Forgive me," he whispered as Arthur touched his shoulder, and then he opened his golden eyes.

Advent 12 - Decorated, Panik, none, G

Title: Decorated
Author: Beren
Fandom: Panik
Pairing: none
Rating: G

They were all tired, that much was sure, but David had not realised how tired until he walked into the sitting area of the studio and discovered Linke sprawled out on the sofa. The funny thing was it seemed that while Linke had been asleep someone had covered their bassist in Christmas decorations. David grinned and picked up a bauble that appeared to have escaped and went to put it on Linke's shoe.

"If you wreck Jan's artistic intent, he will kill you," Linke said and opened one eye.

David just laughed; it seemed everyone had caught the Christmas spirit.

Advent 11 - Still Here, Tokio Hotel, Bill/Tom, PG

No, I don't know why I wrote the first one with any angst in it for my birthday!?? :P

Title: Still Here
Author: Beren
Fandom: Tokio Hotel
Pairing: Bill/Tom
Rating: PG

When Tom had left to go shopping Bill had been bouncing around the apartment putting up their new Christmas decorations. When he came back Bill was just sitting on the floor.

"Bill, what's wrong?" were the first words out of his mouth.

When Bill looked up it was clear his twin had been crying.

"They're not coming," Bill sounded heart broken, "they're snowed in."

Tom dropped all of his bags and went straight to Bill, gathering his precious brother into his arms.

"Don't worry, Billi," he said, knowing how much their parents' visit had meant to Bill, "I'm still here."

Advent 10 - Sound of Silence, Anita Blake, Anita/Nathaniel, PG13

Title: Sound of Silence
Author: Beren
Fandom: Anita Blake
Pairing: Anita/Nathaniel
Rating: PG13

Anita couldn't sleep, so she had left Nathaniel in bed and moved into the living room. Everyone else was out doing their own things and the house was too quiet; it made her edgy.

A noise in the corridor alerted her to the fact she was no longer alone, but she really didn't expect to see a leopard padding through the door. Nathaniel walked over, jumped on the couch, put his head in her lap and began the big cat equivalent of a purr, filling the silence with sound. Anita smiled; somehow Nathaniel always knew how to make her relax.

Advent 09 - Mistletoe, Blood Ties, Henry/Mike, PG13

Title: Mistletoe
Author: Beren
Fandom: Blood Ties
Pairing: Henry/Mike
Rating: PG13

Henry peered at the merrily wrapped parcel in his hands.

"What's this?" he asked.

"A gift," Mike said, not looking overly comfortable about it.

"And why, pray tell, are you giving me a Christmas present?" Henry asked, stressing the 'you' and the 'me'.

Mike really did go a lovely pink.

"You're the ancient one," Mike said, clearly flustered, "you work it out."

Henry couldn't help smiling: Mike was adorable when he was wrong footed; he was going to have to find more mistletoe. Kissing Mike had been a really good idea, shame Vicki had stolen the mistletoe the previous day.

Advent 08 - Not Like That, Jrock, Gackt/Hyde, PG

Title: Not Like That
Author: Beren
Fandom: Jrock RPS
Pairing: Gackt/Hyde
Rating: PG

Hiding in plain view, that's how Hyde saw most of his life. The fans talked about him and Gackt, even pretended that they were together, but none of them actually knew it was true. He made it look like he had the perfect marriage when in fact he and Megumi had come together out of convenience not attraction. He did love her, just not like that; they were friends. It was hard, but what made it worth while were times like now, when Gackt opened the front door before he could use his key and greeted him with a kiss.

Advent 07 - Cats, Weiss Kreuz, none, G

Title: Cats
Author: Beren
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz
Pairing: none
Rating: G

Yoji watched Aya out of the corner of his eye. There was a stray piece of tinsel moving in the draft from where Omi had insisted on decorating the house, and Yoji could see Aya watching it. It was almost as if Aya was becoming a little too close to his codename because Yoji was sure that if Aya had had a tail it would have been twitching. When Aya's hand finally shot out and grabbed the tinsel, as accurate as any paw, Yoji had to hide his snort of laughter behind a discrete cough. Oh yeah, definitely a cat.

Advent 06 - Homecoming, Highlander, none, PG

Title: Homecoming
Author: Beren
Fandom: Highlander
Pairing: none
Rating: PG

It had been nearly twelve years since Richie had seen Mac take his head, well take the head of someone who had looked just like him. Twelve years since he had turned around, changed his name, his hair colour and even taken to wearing coloured contacts to completely become someone else. Of course he knew it had been the demon's fault, he still had nightmares occasionally, but he had needed time to come to terms with the whole thing. Now he was ready; it was time to let Mac know he was still alive. It was time to go home.

Advent 05 - The Best, Torchwood, Jack/Ianto, G

Title: The Best
Author: Beren
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: G (yes I know a G rating for Torchwood seems like a contradiction in terms ;))

Jack tended to gloss over Christmas. He had been alive far too long and seen far too much to be religious, and he was usually on his own. However, Ianto, it seemed, definitely didn't gloss over any part of the festivities. Jack had considered just wrapping himself up with a bow, but that had seemed too clich├ęd, which was why he was wandering down Cardiff high street agonising over the right gift. It should have been easy; he'd had enough practice at gift buying over the years, but it had to be perfect. For Ianto only the best would do.

Chapter 3 Allies )

Advent 04 - Keeping Warm, Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, PG

Title: Keeping Warm
Author: Beren
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG (for suggestiveness)

Malfoy Manor had big open fire places and heating charms and just about everything else anyone could want to keep them warm, except in one place; the master bedroom. There the house elves were not allowed to light the fire until an hour after they lit them everywhere else and the heating charm was only adequate to take off the chill. In the mornings it was always just too cold.

Draco had thought Harry was mad for putting these things into place two months after he moved in. That was until Draco realised how Harry intended to keep him warm.

Advent 03 - Cold, Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, G

Title: Cold
Author: Beren
Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin (if you squint)
Rating: G

Midwinter in Camelot was cold and dreary. Merlin was not made for the cold; he was tall and lanky and wasn't able to keep an ounce of fat on himself no matter how he tried.

When he entered Arthur's rooms, Arthur was still in bed, where Arthur would stay until the fire made the room much warmer. Only Merlin couldn't make the fire light; his fingers were cold and he couldn't make them work.

"Oh for god's sake," Arthur said and Merlin turned to see Arthur lifting the bedclothes, "get over here and warm up; you're useless to me frozen."

Chapter 2 Returning to Light )
On to Part 3

Advent 02 - For Charity, Panik/Th,G

Title: For Charity
Author: Beren
Fandom: Panik/Tokio Hotel
Pairing: none
Rating: G

For charity: two words which could make the most hard bitten musician quake in their boots. The simple reason being, when a producer uttered those words, it was almost impossible to say no. Add in the word 'Christmas' and it was hell on earth, which was why Linke found himself backstage, gingerly holding a Santa hat complete with bell.

He was in good company though; Bill Kaulitz was looking dubiously at reindeer horns, while his brother had been handed a red and white cap that had flashy Christmas lights. Linke did the only thing he could: he began to laugh.
