Summary: Antonia wakes up on the wrong side of the city. [original fiction]

@whumptober2020

It’s incredibly hard, being brave when waking up blindfolded, hands tied, and having no idea where you are. 

Antonia takes a deep breath; the smell is salty, musty, and stale. She can hear nothing around her but the distant crash of waves and the occasional seagull. She’s near the ocean, likely an old shipping warehouse. Not somewhere populated, with the lack of sound in the area. She’s in a chair of some kind, her hands tied behind the back of the seat. There’s nobody else in the building. She can’t hear footsteps, or breathing, or anything. 

Well, it’s not the worst place she’s woken up. 

The detective takes another deep breath. She has to be calm, even if she’s likely been kidnapped by the same serial killer she helped put behind bars. He’ll want his revenge to last, after all. She has time.

Character(s): Female Cousland
Rating: T
Warning(s): none
Wordcount: 545
Summary: Jasmine is determined to get vengeance for her family. [part of iron & ash]

@whumptober2020

The journey to Ostagar was one long nightmare for Jasmine. She hadn’t had supplies in her room for her mad flight, just her arms and armor. It wasn’t as if she was helpless in the wild; between her bow and traps they did not want for food. It was rest that became her biggest hindrance. Even if she had been able to bring a bedroll and tent, sleep was its own fresh misery; whenever she closed her eyes, she saw Highever burning. She dozed when she was too tired to move on and resumed her journey when her memories woke her.

Summary: Shepard takes a stand against her own demons. [part of Gloria Shepard]

cross-posted to ao3 [eventually?]
@whumptober2020

Gloria was too busy trying not to puke her guts up to hear the knock on her door.

It wasn’t as if she didn’t have enough on her plate. They were chasing after Saren and trying to find a way to stop the reapers. The anniversary of the attack on Mindoir was approaching rapidly. All of this conspired to choke her up; a hangman’s noose of circumstance and responsibility. And she had to shoulder that responsibility, she knew it. The council wouldn’t do it. Anderson couldn’t do it. It was just her.

Chronic Pain | Hypothermia | Infection

Title: Corrupted
Fandom: Dragon Age
Character(s): Female Mahariel, Duncan
Rating: Gen
Warning(s): none
Wordcount: 192
Summary: It’s a long journey from the Brecilian Forest to Ostagar for someone with blight sickness.

@whumptober2020

Fen’asha stumbles after Duncan. The shem’s back is broad and unassuming in front of her. It’s easier to stare at that as she walks than the forest around them that spins and dips and makes her legs feel wobbly. The wind is full of whispers, dark and corrupted and… cold. She feels cold. So cold she’s shivering, and yet she can feel sweat beading on her forehead and soaking into the tunic under her leathers. 

“-sha. Fen’asha!” She blinks, shaking her head, and instantly regrets it. The world spins so badly that she has to hold out an arm to steady herself. Duncan looks her over, holding onto her other arm until she stops shaking. “I am very sorry.” His voice is soft and rough and reassuring, despite his words. Fen’asha suddenly, fiercely misses her mother. She swallows it down and meets the human’s gaze. “You’ve done well for such a long journey. We’re almost to Ostagar now.”

Her throat is dry. Her limbs are trembling. She can see behind Duncan the ruins of a huge fortress looming in the distance. “I can make it,” she croaks out. I will make it.

@whumptober2020

“Jane,” Garrus started, then fell silent. She didn’t look up from her work, carefully pulling metal fragments from his leg. The pile on the towel next to her kept growing bigger, and he was suddenly very glad that he couldn’t feel the wound. He turned his gaze from the gory scene to the woman probably saving his leg. This woman was an enigma that he couldn’t help but want to figure out. “How did you end up on Omega?”

Summary: Ten years after the Blight ends, Elissa Cousland runs into someone she never thought she’d see again. It, uh, doesn’t go quite as planned. [mostly canon compliant; Loghain is spared and becomes a warden]

cross-posted to ao3 [eventually]
@whumptober2020

It could have been anyone, really, tending to Arl Teagan’s horses. Just another no-name, displaced soldier after… well. Between the battle of Ostagar and the Blight, there were a lot of people with no one left and nowhere to go. But Elissa Cousland hadn’t survived all that she had by being stupid. Teagan’s stablemaster was avoiding her- not just her, but the whole retinue of Grey Wardens. From the glimpses she’d caught as he’d made himself scarce, his hair and back were as familiar to her now as the creak of her armor or the darkspawn nightmares.

Oh, and he felt like a Grey Warden.

There’s the sound of boots approaching the observation deck. Shepard really, really, really isn’t in the mood to deal with “her” crew. She doesn’t move from where her forehead is pressed against the cool window. Maybe whoever it is will just give up and go away.

@whumptober2020

Garrus was going to get so much shit for this when he got back to the base.

Monteague especially was going to have a few words to say about his breaking the buddy system, Garrus could just feel it in his plates. And Meirin was indescribably good at the “disappointed mom stare.” Something to do with having an extra set of eyelids, Garrus assumed. But to bear the brunt of his crew’s displeasure, he had to make it back to the base alive.

With every passing second, it seemed less likely that Garrus would be able to return to them.

cross-posted to ao3 [eventually]
@whumptober2020

Sakura can’t believe she’s about to do this.

The wall of her tiny room is cold and rough against her back. Her breath comes in little pants, quick and short and clouding her mind just enough to bite back the panic at her own plans. Kabuto had let her have free run of the labs once she’d passed her “final exam.” She doubts she was supposed to find Orochimaru’s notes on his experiments with the Shodaime’s cells, the horror story written meticulously in the Sanin’s own handwriting. She doubts she was supposed to find a sample of the Shodaime’s cells, still perfectly preserved and ready for injection. But she had.

@whumptober2020

Surana paces the length of her cell. Back and forth, back and forth, until her feet are sore. Even though she was Harrowed… even though she’d proven that she was (small quiet obedient) safe… they were going to make her Tranquil. It was supposed to be unthinkable. Unlawful. She’d passed her test and proven herself; they had no right to do… that.

Warning(s): character death, child death
Wordcount: 156
Summary: Asriel brought Chara home one last time.

@whumptober2020

Her paws are covered in dust, and Toriel can’t breathe.

There are sounds around her: footsteps, moving closer to see the horrific scene before them. Gasps, as those around them realize whose dust and whose body lies in the garden. Asgore’s voice, cracked and broken as he says “Leave us!” and “Please.”

Toriel doesn’t look up from the dust on her hands, even when she hears Asgore fall to his knees beside her. There’s a strange pressure in her chest. It hurts to breathe. She doesn’t move when she sees Asgore’s paw enter her peripheral. He reaches out and brushes some hair from Chara’s still, pale face. “Our… children…” His voice wavers. “Why? What have monsters done to deserve this?”

She doesn’t answer him. She can’t speak, can’t breathe. Her babies are dead. She has dust on her hands, a tiny head cradled in her lap, and she’s drowning in the tears that won’t- can’t- fall.

No 12. I THINK I’VE BROKEN SOMETHING
Broken Down | Broken Bones | Broken Trust

Title: Being a twin is a Hard Thing
Fandom: Red vs Blue
Character(s): South Dakota
Rating: T
Warning(s): psychological trauma
Wordcount: 281
Summary: In the days before Wash finds them, South gets… introspective. [canon compliant? taken from a wip I was never going to finish so I fleshed it out for whumptober instead]

@whumptober2020

You’re not going to heaven, Agent South Dakota. You watch your own brother shatter, and you don’t try to pick up the razor-sharp pieces. 

Your brother cries out in his sleep. He doesn’t know that he does it, but he does. South. Kiddo. младшая сестра. He sleeps more and more now that the fragment in his brain is getting more fragmented. You used to want one of those things. You watch your brother toss and turn, sweat beading on his forehead. Tears slip out from under his closed eyelids. You don’t know that pain, South Dakota, and yet you wish you did. You think it’s sickening.

It would be so easy to just… reach over and take it. The AI fragment. You watch your brother, still for once as he rests, his back turned to you with a trust you know you no longer deserve. His port is in plain view, just under the increasingly shaggy line of his hair. You’ve got your knife in one hand, ready for anything, and your trusty blade would easily pry out the fragment’s housing from your brother’s neck. 

You touch the empty port on your own neck, fingers ghosting along the border of emptiness and sensitive skin. You shiver and yank your hand down to sharpen your knife instead. It feels like something is building, something is coming, and all you can do is prepare to meet it as you always have - weapons ready and a middle finger raised to the world. The world will end for both of you in a bang, not a whimper.

Maybe nothing in the aftermath will be enough like your brother to keep you from moving on.

Jasmine paced the length of the larder while her parents spoke to each other in hushed tones. They didn’t have much time before they were discovered, but she could at least spare them a moment’s privacy. And she didn’t want to have to look at her father, pale and shaking and covered in his own blood. Blood spilled by one of his oldest friends. Jasmine felt her anger surge again and she spun on her heel to face her parents. “Howe cannot get away with this treachery!”

Summary: A detective’s work is never done. Antonia deals with the news that her most famous case’s subject is on the run again. [original fiction]

@whumptober2020

“No, no, seriously, I’m fine.” Antonia shifted her phone from her left hand to her right so that she could dig her keys out of her bag. 

Her favorite journalist hmm’d. “If you say so. I mean, it’s been all over the news. And it was a pretty high-profile case.” It in this instance meant the extremely stressful and widely publicized case where Detective Antonia Black had put away possibly the nation’s most brutal serial killer. His jailbreak was absolutely everywhere - every news station, paper, magazine, and radio station had been talking about it all day, and Antonia was absolutely sick of hearing about it.

Naruto hated his birthday.

People in the village were always mean to him- throwing garbage and rocks at him to make him go away, refusing to sell food and clothes to him, always watching him with narrowed eyes and disgusted faces- but it was worse on his birthday. It wasn’t his fault that the nine-tailed fox had attacked the village on his birthday! But people acted like it was. And the older he got, the worse the treatment seemed to get. This year he was about to turn seven, and a whole crowd of people had shown up while he was walking home from the Academy and attacked him.

“Garrus! Garrus!” His eyes were screwed shut. Everything hurt, hurt like he hadn’t ever felt before. His face felt like he’d been dragged across the scrublands of Palaven. Something shifted him, just slightly, but it was a small ripple of pain across his body greatly overshadowed by the wave of agony across his face. “-don’t you dare tell me I’m too late- Garrus-” That voice… Garrus knew that voice, though he’d never heard it so worried.

Decimus isn’t ready to die.

Most people probably aren’t, when their time comes, but he was hoping to maybe be a little older than 25 cycles. He shifts away from the wreckage of the scout shuttle he’d been on, crashed into this stupid planet of this stupid alien colony. He can’t feel his legs, but his arms still work. He brings his omnitool arm up, but the thing doesn’t come on.

He curses.
