Aveyond prompt meme! (Autumn guild event)

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year! Pumpkins, sweater weather, leaves turning the color of sunsets and flames. (Well, unless you live in a tropical climate or in the Southern Hemisphere... ur there's still Halloween, right?) To celebrate the season of autumn, we believe a celebration is in order. An extravaganza, rather. The School of War and Magick guild would like to proudly present...

A prompting meme! :D
The idea behind this is that each of the guilds would host a fandom event to kickstart the forum and have a little fun. My idea is this: anyone who wants to participate posts a relatively general prompt. This could be a pairing, an AU idea, something related to a specific game, maybe even fall/Halloween related stuff. Be creative, but not so specific that the person filling it can't be flexible. If you post a prompt, fill someone else's! Although say that you intend to write (or draw) it so that we don't get double fills, of course. Prompt fills don't have to be long, either -that way the meme keeps moving along. The thread continues for the duration of the season, or until we run out of things to suggest :P
This probably sounds a little confusing, so feel free to ask me any questions. Happy prompting!
 
Prompt masterlist: 

The AV2 characters find a puppy/kitten/tiny cute animal and have to take care of it. Chaos. Destruction. Adorableness. Go, go, go!! (currently being filled by @Scrivener of the Gods)

Crackship the h--- out of AV1!!! GhalahadxRhen, Te'ijalxLars, ElinixDameon, JohnxBeatrice, you name it! (Filled)

Elini is battling Ahriman who is trying to possess her to regain control of the daevas. However due to an accidental slip of tongue on one of the words...he is instead the one being possessed (currently being filled by @Scrivener of the Gods)

Kids of whatever ship. Like if Dameon and Te'ijal had a kid, then how would that look? (Open)

The misadventures of Te'ijal and Galahad going trick or treating! (currently being filled by @moonpeace)

I just need to see post-AV2 Nicolas, Gavin, and Ava all together on her ship (basically the canon ending if you have both of them in your party). Pairings between any two (or all three) of them are optional - but appreciated! (Filled)

Okay I am so excited for this, and I am an old lady mentally so I am a little confused on the rules but I know I post prompts here and then do a prompt so that's good enough for me!!

So prompt #1 for my favorite fandom: 

The AV2 characters find a puppy/kitten/tiny cute animal and have to take care of it. Chaos. Destruction. Adorableness. Go, go, go!! 

bonus points if chocolate is involved and somebody has to explain to the animal lover that no the puppy cannot have that treat

Decided to fill @Honey Butter Chloe's prompt, and add one of my own:

I just need to see post-AV2 Nicolas, Gavin, and Ava all together on her ship (basically the canon ending if you have both of them in your party). Pairings between any two (or all three) of them are optional - but appreciated!

@Honey Butter Chloe and @Queen-of-Ice101, don't forget to take a prompt! No pressure to do it immediately, just a friendly reminder.

I decided to knock this out after dinner! I hope you all enjoy!

 

Business

 

"Please don't touch that."

Ava flicked Nicolas' hand off of the winch. He sighed dramatically.

"Ava, I am bored."

"Congratulations. Did I miss the part where that means you should mess up my ship?"

"Can't it go any faster? We've been on the ocean for weeks!"

"Five days. And no, she can't. Lay off her, twinkle-talons; she's got feelings, too."

Nicolas glared back at the winch he'd been inspecting and absently ran his manicured nails down his cheek. What a waste of time this sailing business was! If only they had another of those flying crafts, like the one the squirrels made. He had babies to kiss, small businessmen to charm, and entire continents to peruse. Continents. Land. Solid land, larger than one hundred and fifty feet across and not made almost entirely of oak.

"Don't tell me you haven't been having a good time on our little cruise," Ava lectured. "I know perfectly well what you and Gavin have been up to in the forecastle when you think no one is listening."

Nicolas' pale skin blossomed into an unsightly red. "You don't... know that," he retorted weakly.

She laughed. "Honey, everyone knows that."

He was as red as Gavin's hair now, his head spinning a little, anchored only by the weight of his circlet. "Well... it's not as if there's much else to do! And... it's not... boring." Oh, gods; why am I admitting this?

"What's not boring?"

Nicolas jumped, the skin nearly shivering right off his shoulders as Gavin appeared behind him. "Gavin!" he yelped.

"No, I'm certainly not," he said in that deep, mellow voice of his. "What's the matter? Royal dogmatism a little too mundane without any warlock scum around to shake it up?"

It was all too easy for Gavin to jolt Nicolas out of his head and into the offensive. "Hardly. I can always count on you to bring the contrariety."

Nicolas didn't turn around, but he could practically feel the dung-eating grin spread across Gavin's face. He wouldn't admit that just picturing that grin made something hot well up inside him.

Ava clasped her hands by her cheek. "Oh, it is so delightful to see my boys getting along," she gushed, saturated with sarcasm. "I have every hope that you two will become the absolute fleetest of friends, and not a single fear that one of you will one day angrily burn down my ship."

Gavin walked toward her, and there he was, fully in view, from the ridiculous knee-high boots he wore to the cape that gave his broad shoulders an intriguing, angular frame. The grin still danced across his face, and the way it pushed his shallow cheeks out by the top of his jaw... just... oh, Goddess; Nicolas finally remembered the real reason he once adamantly refused to travel with the warlock.

Truly, though he avoided thinking about it with an almost comical intensity, he knew that a prince of Thais had no business dallying with a common Witchwood warlock.

 

 

Gavin rolled his head, cracking his neck the way he knew Nicolas hated. "It just occurred to me," he told Ava, "that we're heading straight for Eldrion on this northwestern course."

"And?" She didn't seem impressed by his geographical prowess.

"And we should stop in Harakauna," he finished, a smirk creeping up his cheek. "It would quite diversify the... stock of folk our dear prince would meet on his illuminating voyage."

He knew her well enough to know that she was swallowing a chuckle as she turned to face the sea. "You have a point there," she said eventually. "As Thais has no beef with Harakauna, I don't see why we shouldn't shepherd my vessel into their waters."

Gavin glanced over at Nicolas for a split second, just long enough to see that furrowed blond brow and pinched pout he lived to provoke. His smile widened. "Unless Prince Nicolas chickens out, of course."

"Excuse me!" There was that snappy tenor. "I haven't the foggiest clue what you two are talking about, but I am right here, and I fully intend to follow through with the promise I made my brother."

A laugh sputtered from Ava's mouth. Gavin slapped a hand to his mouth to catch the snicker he couldn't contain. Oh, Underworld; he actually doesn't know about Harakauna. That's...!

Nicolas threw his hands into the air like the prima donna he was. "Have you loons all caught the laughing sickness?"

Gavin took a deep breath and steadied himself. He shot Nicolas a smoldering look in the eye, the look they both knew he usually reserved for more private affairs. He bit his lower lip and slowly drew his teeth back before opening his mouth.

"Mutton."

Ava convulsed with laughter, and Gavin chortled along with her. Nicolas, never one to betray his confusion, made a noise of disgust and stormed away, his robes swishing behind him. Gavin loved that he could elicit that noise from Nicolas on command. He loved quite a lot of the ways Nicolas reacted to him, most of all that paramount, beet-red frustration no one but Gavin could stir. He loved... quite a lot of Nicolas' idiosyncrasies, the little ways in which the prince exaggerated even the smallest of his own emotions. Hundreds of years a Casanova among witches, and not one withering glare from his past could compare to the thrill Gavin felt whenever this crisp little prince... acknowledged him. He loved that thrill.

He did. He loved...

A thrill, he reminded himself, only attainable for the next forty to sixty years. He folded his arms, trying to shield himself from the chill suddenly buffeting his chest. A deep breath reminded him of the constancy of the sea, the persistence of the wind. That was all he was, and he knew it. An eternal breeze through the skirts of entertaining mortals.

An unaging warlock had no business falling for a mortal, human prince.

 

 

Nicolas was gone by the time she recovered from her hysterics. Gavin was still there, his arms crossed, looking much too pensive for his own good. Ava straightened out, rolled back her shoulders, and served him a firm punch on the arm.

"Ow!" He flinched, and she smirked.

"Learn to take a hit or two, you three-hundred-year-old baby," she jabbed, but there was gentleness deep in her words. She wondered if he could hear it.

"Maybe warn me before you intend to bruise me," he grumbled.

"Not all punches in life are gonna warn you before you get decked," she reminded him. "Anyway, Nicolas is bored. Go teach him a card game."

"But--"

"Do it." Ava lifted her decorative eyepatch, revealing her fully-functional second eye, and winked. "Captain's orders."

Gavin's cloak swelled behind him as he turned to follow Nicolas. "If I lose, I'm burning a hole in the jib."

"You'll be the one to mend it."

Ava watched Gavin fondly as he strode after Nicolas. There was nothing more for her to say. She turned back to face the bow and tightened the winch with which Nicolas had fussed earlier. Maybe she should set a new course for Harakauna. Word on the seas had it that shapeshifters frequented the town... and shapeshifting women were an especially alluring item Ava yearned to cross off her bucket list.

That was her business.

@Ishti Ahhh! I am grinning ear to ear right now. I don't think I've ever found a Nicolas/Gavin fic, and I ship them like FedEx so I'm really happy to see one. I love Gavin bringing out Ava's devious side, and how he enjoys getting a rise out of Nicolas, and how you incorporated the headcanon that Gavin was immortal (did you get that because of the warlock named Gavin in AV1?). The part at the end with Ava made me lol :D Thank you so much for filling my prompt!

@moonpeace Yup! I mean, don't they look basically the same? I'm of the opinion that they're meant to be the same person, especially since their personalities and community roles are identical. It's one of those things I can't NOT headcanon, lol.

You're super welcome - I'm so glad you enjoyed it!! It was refreshing to write! Nicolas/Gavin is one of my top OTPs, too!
