Round Five - Fic  
Hey, everyone! Time has come for the prompt post to be closed and the writing of fic to begin.

Some Rules/Guidelines for Submission and Feedback:

1. Drabbles should be submitted by commenting on this post. There is no word minimum or maximum. If your fic doesn't fit in one comment (about 4300 characters), that's perfectly fine. Just post an excerpt of your fic and a link to the rest of the story elsewhere.

2. You need to use a subject line for your submissions.

The format you should use is: Title, Prompt, Rating. Example: That's How I Was Raised And I Turned Out TV, The Simpsons reruns, PG

3. Each drabble should be submitted as a new comment to this post.

4. Anyone can submit as many drabbles as they'd like, using any prompts, even your own. More than one person can submit for the same prompt.

5. Feel free to cross-post submissions elsewhere. Just make sure you let others know you wrote if for this drabble-a-thon.

6. If you like what you've read, please take the time to tell the author. Comments are like crack to fanfic writers. We can never get enough. (Please be sure to reply to the comment in which the author posted their drabble, not to this original post, so the author receives your feedback.)

7. Absolutely no flames of any kind will be tolerated in this community. This is supposed to be fun. Read the subject line before reading, and simply skip over something that appears not to be to your liking or rating preference.

The deadline for Round Five Submissions will be on September 23rd. Go on and write, everyone.

A Journey I Just Don't Have A Map For, Time And Time Again, T
a.

She’s drunk.

She’s really drunk. And she’s pretty sure that he’s drunk too, but she’s drunk to be sure.

Because otherwise, she doesn’t really know what other reason there could be for his hand being on her ass.

Or his body pressing her against the wall.

In fact, she’s pretty sure he must be drunk because there is no way his lips would be pressed against hers, or his tongue would be invading her mouth if he was sober.

Because she’s not his type, and he’s not her type.

So, she’s drunk and he’s drunk, and they are kissing.

The only thing that she can clearly think is that this cannot be a good idea. It feels like a good idea, because now his fingers are pressing into her hip, and he’s holding himself right against her, and that feels good. Really good.

But this cannot be a good idea.

She pulls back and says his name but he ignores her, instead one of his hands leaves her hip and runs up her side.

His lips are pressed against her neck as she repeats his name, and then she’s moaning and can’t really think much at all.

His lips return to hers, and then he breaks the kiss with a groan, resting his forehead against hers.

“I know” he says, a palm cupping the back of her neck, and his thumb stroking against her jaw.

And she’s far too drunk to hear the regret.

b.

Being surrounded by a jeering crowd sends her back to the time she spent on stage in college. She involuntarily takes a step back at the memory, which just makes them increase the volume of their shouts.

“Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!”

She really hates the teamsters right now. She feels likes she’s on one of those game shows, and she’s the girl whose about to get rejected in public.

“Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!”

She’s not drunk. And he’s not drunk. Well, he might have had a whiskey but its only 3pm so she’s pretty sure that he's not drunk, and therefore there is no way that he’ll kiss her. And anyway, not in front of a room of people.

She reaches up, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear as she shakes her head.

But then her vision of the crowd is blocked. In place of Tracy, Jenna, Kenneth, Pete, and the rest of the Teamsters, is a jacket and tie. She raises her eyes to look up into his face, and she gulps.

The rest is here Link
