“The thing about starlight,” Brem begins.

“If you say that we’re all made of it,” says the man with a grin, “I’ll be so disappointed.”

Brem frowns. “Why?”

“It’s an overused line.”

“Oh,” says Brem, and then, “I was going to say they it looks different in space. They only twinkle because of your atmosphere. So, when you were singing ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ just now, it was only appropriate because we’re here on Earth.”

“And where else would we be?”

“Not on Earth,” suggests Brem.

The smile unfurls, wide and delighted. “Now that’s a line I’ve never heard before.”

Sherlock didn’t believe in coincidences. The universe was rarely so lazy.

So it always irritated Sherlock told him he was lucky to find John. Sherlock had mentioned needing a flatmate to Mike Stamford because Mike was tolerable enough to have acceptable acquaintances. No luck required.

“But wasn’t it luck that we ran into each other in the park?” John asked.

“Predictable,” said Sherlock. “You were bound to cross paths again after you returned to London.”

“Still,” said John, “I like to think of our meeting as a fortunate happenstance.”

John had a romantic streak. Sherlock decided not to fight it.

“He’s thinking of what?” Arthur says blankly.

“Retiring,” his mother replies cheerfully. “We’re thinking of going on a bunch of really long cruises.”

“Oh,” Arthur croaks, because he doesn’t know what to say.

He finds Eames later. “My mom says Saito wants to retire.”

“Retire…how?” says Eames.

“Like, from work.”

Eames cocks his head. “Do dragons retire? I never thought about that before.”

“He’s not a dragon. But he’s our agent. Is it selfish of me to dread having to get another agent used to you?”

“I don’t know what you mean,” says Eames, “I’m an angel to work with.”

Photo shoots were always inexplicable, but this one felt exceptional.

Patrick tilted his head at the photo, where Matt was sprawled on a bed of feathers, sending the camera a come-hither look. “But what’s it supposed to represent?”

Matt pretended to consider. “Sex,” he replied. “It’s supposed to be sexy.”

Patrick laughed. “No, I know but…they could put you in anything and tell you to just make that look.”

“Yeah. Hence the feathers.”

Patrick laughed again.

“By the way. I brought a few home. Thought we could put them to sexy use.”

“Go sprawl somewhere and look come-hither,” commanded Patrick.

The first time Zuko saw Katara, he knew she didn’t think he’d seen her. But he did. In those days, it took an incredible effort to make an impression on Zuko if you weren’t the avatar, and Katara had managed it.

Not that Zuko thought about it then.

The first time Zuko spoke to Katara, he was still focused mostly on the avatar.

But the first time Zuko kissed Katara – then he was focused on nothing but her. And after, for the first time, Zuko began to think about how there really was life after all of this.

Their life.

“I’ve never been on a boat before! This is going to be such an adventure!”

Arthur refrained from mentioning that she had been smuggled out of her homeland on a boat.

Lucky stood right by the railing as the boat chugged away from the shore and out into the Mediterranean, and Eames pointed out pretty bits of shoreline, and birds swooping overhead.

Lucky frowned and said, “Okay, what happens next?”

“Nothing,” Eames said. “This.”

“This is boring,” Lucky said. “I thought there’d be adventure.”

“Only if the boat sinks,” Eames said.

Lucky brightened.

Arthur said, “We’re not sinking the boat.”

John said, “We should discuss the fact that Oliver’s growing older—”

I am aware of the passage of time and its effects on human anatomy.”

“But not just human anatomy, also the human brain--”

“Which is a piece of the human anatomy.”

“I’m just saying that Oliver is bringing this boy home and maybe we should anticipate that the boy is a boy…friend.”

Sherlock looked blank.

“It’s a possibility,” said John.

Except the boy turned out to be a girl and Sherlock hissed, “A girlfriend is even worse.”

And then Oliver said, “Gender’s just a social construct anyway.”

Sherlock put a box on the top shelf of the bookshelf that no one was allowed to touch. John thought it must contain extraordinarily dangerous poisons, for Sherlock to have it out of reach.

When Oliver was out of the flat and John was bored by how quiet everything seemed, he decided it was worth risking Sherlock’s wrath to have something to do and so reorganized the bookshelves. And he opened the box. Oliver’s bumblebee rattle, which he’d thought lost years ago. Oliver’s baby blanket, which still smelled amazingly like Oliver. Photos, drawings, lab experiments.

Sentiment, John thought, and smiled.

“It’s scientific,” Sherlock said, sitting in their kitchen, surrounded by a stack of charts and diagrams. “If you’d just sit down and listen to me, you would see how stupid you’re being.”

John lifted his eyebrows. “Ordinarily you don’t require charts to tell me how I’m stupid I’m being.”

“Yes, but you’re being especially stupid in this area, so I have to be especially precise.” Sherlock glared at him.

“Alright,” John sighed. “What’s this all about?”

“This,” announced Sherlock, “is a fourteen-point presentation on why I should obviously always be the big spoon.”

John sighed again.

OMG, everyone, it's been TEN YEARS. 

Here we go! Want a drabble? Leave a comment on this DW entry! Anonymous commenting should be enabled, so you shouldn't need a DW account. The first 24 people to leave a one-word prompt in a comment will get a drabble, posted one each day in December until Christmas. If you want to, you can also request specific characters/'verses. Prompts can be holiday-themed or not, depending on your whims and desires! 

Drabbles will be posted on DW (and thus cross-posted to LJ) and also to Tumblr. If you let me know your Tumblr username, I'll tag you on the Tumblr post so you're sure to see it! You can also remain anonymous, if you prefer. 

It's been a long and tiring year. I hope, whether you celebrate any holiday in December or none at all, you find as many little bits of light in the winter darkness as you can.
