“Elysia, you’re so clever! Papa’s so prou— ooh, careful now… damn it! No! Forget papa said that word! We won’t tell mummy, will we?”
“What won’t we tell mummy?”
Maes turned to see an amused Gracia leaning against the doorjamb.
“Daddy said a—” Elysia started before Maes clapped a hand over her mouth, stifling the rest of her sentence.
“Well…” Maes drawled slowly over his daughter’s muffles, “I wasn’t going to tell you, but I guess you were going to find out sooner or later… Elysia broke my glasses.”
He tried not to take notice of his daughter’s glare as he removed his hand.
“Again? Maes, I’ve told you not to let her play with them!”
“But—!” Maes protested as Elysia giggled.
“This is the last time, Maes.” she said sternly before sharing a smile with her daughter over his crestfallen expression. “I’ll call Roy again, shall I?”

word count. 100
summary. Masaki is left to doubt Isshin’s ability to satisfy her culinary cravings
disclaimer. Bleach belongs to Kubo Tite
notes. Going by the fact that oranges are not in season in the Northern Hemisphere at New Year’s (unlike in Australia ^.~)
“I feel like oranges.”
Isshin looked up from his newspaper. “What?”
“Oranges. I have a craving.” Masaki smiled, rubbing her very pregnant belly.
“It’s winter so they’re out of season.” Isshin said pragmatically.
“This doesn’t sound like my loving husband who’d do anything for his poor, pregnant-with-his-twins’ wife…”
She smiled to herself as Isshin hauled himself out of his chair with a groan, but the grin quickly disappeared as he carried in a screaming Ichigo and pushed the squirming baby into her arms.
“Here, he’s always in season and packed with nutritional value! I suggest you start with his hair.”

disclaimer. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya belongs to Tanigawa Nagaru
“Kyon! Kyon!” Haruhi was pointing excitedly to an expressionless Yuki. “Check out what Yuki can do! Do it again, Yuki!”
Kyon turned towards Yuki who merely stared at him. He shrugged his shoulders as if to say just do it, then. She blinked and suddenly her mouth moved at the inhumane speed she was capable of when she performed some of her bogus magic.
Kyon suddenly got a very very bad feeling.
“Amazing!” Haruhi gushed. “You’ll have to teach me how to do it! Is this how you do it?”
Before he could stop her, Haruhi’s mouth began to move. Kyon’s eyes widened as the sky turned a light shade of green before reverting back to blue.
“Was that close, Yuki?” When she made no reply, Haruhi frowned. “No? How about this?”
Kyon clapped a hand over her mouth. “For the love of the universe, don’t ever try that again!”

word count. 150
summary. Watanuki figures playing an evil witch suits Yuuko just fine
disclaimer. xxxHOLiC belongs to CLAMP
“Watanuki,” Yuuko says, blowing a puff of smoke in his face. He’s been here so long, it no longer fazes him.
“What is it, Yuuko-san?”
“I thought you made a very good Alice. You looked so cute in that blue dress!”
“So cute, Watanuki! So cute, Watanuki!” Maru and Moro cheer in unison.
He feels like he knows where this is going but he keeps quiet. He’s not going to help Yuuko get there (she doesn’t seem to need help getting anywhere).
“So today, while you’re working, I thought you could wear this!” she pulls out a dress which he recognises immediately from the Disney film.
“Indeed! And I’ll be the Queen.”
Watanuki knew what she meant by this: you may be the princess, but I overrule you.
“Of course you will be; who else could you play?”
He figures playing an evil witch suits her just fine.
