Love is blind, baby
“Hey Gerard,” Frank greeted as he sat down by the table.
Gerard didn’t even look up from his sketch book, instead acknowledging his presence with a loud grunt. He tilted his head closer to the page, changing his angle of vision. His hand moved in swift, sharp actions, the pencil leaving faint lines, gathering together in the form of a face.
“What’cha drawing?” Frank asked, as he rested his chin on folded arms.
Gerard sighed and set his pencil down. He closed the sketch book and looked Frank straight in the eye, “It’s just a person. I’m not sure who though,” He hesitated, biting his lip.
“Go on,” Frank encouraged.
“Okay, but promise not laugh?” At Frank’s nod, Gerard continued, “I’ve been having a dream, like, the same one for nearly a week now. It’s. I don’t know how to explain it. I can hear this voice, and it’s distant, really far away, but I can feel someone next to me, and I know it’s him talking. I can’t see him though. Not properly, he’s all blurry. I can’t make him out. I’m trying to draw him, see if I can figure out who he is,” Gerard stopped rambling and focus on a point above Frank’s left shoulder, “Go ahead, you can laugh now,” He mumbled.
“Why would I laugh?” Frank actually sounded confused.
“Because it’s weird? I don’t know.”
“I would never laugh at something as serious as love, Gerard.”
“Love?” Now it was Gerard who was confused.
“Well, yes. Why else would you be dreaming about someone you know, but can’t figure out. Love is blind, Gerard, it creeps up on you, you don’t even realize at first, until BAM!” He smacked his hand down on the table, causing Gerard to jump, “Your sight is forever gone, along with your heart. You’ll never look at another person again.”
“Oh. Yeah, I guess,” Gerard opened his sketch book again and went back to work. Frank took this to mean the conversation was over, and left him too it.
That night Gerard didn’t sleep. He kept his eyes closed, but his mind was too active to shut down. He was contemplating Frank’s idea about him being in love, but not knowing who with, when said boy climbed into his bed. His eyes stayed shut while Frank pressed the sides of their bodies together and started talking quietly. His eyes stayed shut as the image of Frank’s face became clearer in his mind, starting of as a skin coloured blur, until eventually, he could make out the flecks of gold that ran through hazel eyes. His eyes stayed shut as Frank climbed out of the bed after what felt like hours, until finally, his eyes stayed shut because he was sound asleep.
“Hey Gerard,” Frank greeted as he sat down by the table.
Gerard set his pencil down and gazed at his drawing. He picked the book up and held it in the air, viewing it from a different position. He grunted at Frank.
“What’cha drawing today?” Frank questioned.
“Same as yesterday,” Gerard replied lightly.
“Blind love?”
“No,” Gerard glanced at him, “True love.” He turned the sketch book around so Frank could see his own image staring back at him.
“I’m not blind, Frank. Infact, I can see very clearly.”
Frank smiled again.

Aww lovely :)

Please can you explain what a prompt table is? I tend to not read the stories as much as stand alones or chaptered stories purely cause I don't really get it. Plase explain so I can read more! This story is amazing though, I just don't get the prompt tanle bit... and the numbers...
silencing_sam From: silencing_sam Date: July 14th, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

I'm not a great explainer of things, so if anyone else reads this, and I have it wrong, please correct me. But from what I've gathered, you basically get given 100 random words, and you have to write a story based on that word. For example, I choose blind, which is word number 7, and interpreted it to mean blind love. But I could have written a story about one of the characters being blind, or even about window blinds, it all depends on how you want to interpet the word.

Basically you have to write 100 stories/one shots, each one about a different word, it's like a writing challenge. ira_luxuria has created a chaptered story using a prompt table, so each chapter is based on a word from her table.

So, stories from a prompt table are basically one shots that have been inspired by one word. Does that make sense? Like I said, I'm not too good at explaining, so hopefully you understand better now =]

omg that sounds like fun! thats awesome! i may have to try it one day.
*sigh* oh sam, my child, your stories never cease to amaze me...they're so fluffy and awesome. I love that they're short...wen i write stories i tend to get so mixed up in the technicalities of it, and my one shots eventually evole into chaptered fics...i can't just write simple, beautiful pieces like this...they have to be a tangled web, like an explosion of ideas....they're so fucking confusing....but ur's are so special because they flow so easily and grab hold of you...they're perfect.
please keep these coming...i love them.
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I totally understand, I find it so hard to keep them simple, but that's why it's a challenge for me.

Thanks for your comment, it made me smile, and feel like I'm doing what I wanted and getting that across. Don't think that makes much sense but basically, I'm happy now =]
gail_with_an_l From: gail_with_an_l Date: July 15th, 2007 03:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahhh.. I totaly get it now. See I knew there was a stary made up of them but I didn't wanna read cause I could never quite get whether it was just a load of random stories or just one standalone wach time! I will def pay them more attention in future, it is an awesome idea for writing! Thanks for explaining to doofus here..X
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
well I'm glad that you understand now, and that you'll pay more attention =]

Hopefully you'll keep reading my stuff!

please ignore that attempt at getting more readers xD

I sure will! And I apologise for the hideous typos in that message! It's not that I'm bad at spelling or grammar or anything I'm just a bit typing-dyslexic! :p
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 11:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's fine, honestly =]
nordic_nymph From: nordic_nymph Date: September 18th, 2007 05:53 am (UTC) (Link)
where do you get the 100 words?
silencing_sam From: silencing_sam Date: September 18th, 2007 05:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
you can find prompt tables pretty much anywhere. Look up 100_situations in the search thing at the top of your homepage on lj, or something like that.

But I found it a bit of a bother 'cause you have to sign up to it and stuff(better explanations can be found if you look it up) so I created my own. You can use that if you want a table without all the fuss, I've got all the coding and stuff, so if you want it, I'll email it to you. All I ask though, is that I get credited for the table cause it took so long to type up the codes and think of the word etc.

Gah! So cute; loved it!! lol
I really love fluff, but I never seem to write it right, always shifts to something sad or something, but I love reading it.
Thanks for posting it =D hehe
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 14th, 2007 02:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol, I'm the other way around. Kind of. I don't mind fluff, but I prefer angst-y stories, usually with sad endings, but I figured I'd give it a go =]
There's plenty more to come in the future as well, all the stories posted on this account will be fluff =]
Thanks for reading it!
firstyoufall From: firstyoufall Date: July 14th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Haha, aw. That's so cute. If only realy people had the courage to pop into bed with another at nighttime. Lol.

haha, if only. Thanks for commenting =]
ira_luxuria From: ira_luxuria Date: July 14th, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sammeh I shall die from the cuteness. I can't believe you wrote it so fast lol. But as per usual it was amazing. Although I have a bone to pick.

“Your sight is forever gone, along with your heart. You’ll never look at another person again.”

That is so not true. People do look at other people they just don't usually touch xD

Next prompt please as soon as possible pleases and thank yous.

prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol, I'm really trying with this. I'm going to see about getting one out a day, but my internet has been fucked up all day, and I've only just managed to get onto lj, so I'm posting once I've replied to all comments. I don't understand though, cause I could get onto hotmail, and an old version of msn, but not lj, or any other website =/ ah well, hopefully it's fixed now.

Oh hush, you. It's fluff. Meant to be happy! Lol, I know it's true, but I don't think it would've had the same effect if Frank had said, "Your heart is forever gone, and your sight is slightly blurry, but you can still see. Just as long as you don't buy glasses, or pull a Mikey and get corrective surgery, you'll be fine."
It rather defeats the meaning of the prompt blind don't ya think?


It's going up asap, so it'll be up when you read this reply.

ira_luxuria From: ira_luxuria Date: July 16th, 2007 06:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Lol things like that suck.

It does defeat the meaning of the prompt but it doesn't stop it being funny xD

Read it replied.

comeththegirl From: comeththegirl Date: July 14th, 2007 05:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
well SMS aren't we the speedy one! I actually like this even more than the last one. You write good cute darling I am so proud of my little boy lmao
I do agree with Alice though
Your sight is forever gone, along with your heart. You’ll never look at another person again.” in real life? so not true I think you look and touch actually.
love you Tiger xxxxxxxxxxxx
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm trying to keep up with you, but as I've just ranted to Alice above, the internet is not on my side. I'll be catching up with your stuff tomorrow, and commenting it as well.

-blushes- you sound like a mother, but considering some stuff, I really hope you don't become a mother figure for me [no offence, I'm just thinking about the dream...]

And again, as I said to Alice, I totally agree. But it would fuck up the cuteness factor, and we can't be having that in fluff now, can we?

love you Ali baby

comeththegirl From: comeththegirl Date: July 16th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC) (Link)
ha def don't want to be your mother lol- that would make you a mother fucker and we don't want that LYA

Hee! This one was cute too, but in a different, not quite as obvious way as the first one. Again I could picture everything clearly, particularly when Frank's asking Gerard what he's drawing and Gerard jst grunts, so would happen! Haha.

You write good fluff! Though now I'm in an all too fluffy mood and am not sure if I can write my angst, haha. Loved this! :)
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think they will all be different in ways, cause if I wrote 100 stories with the same kind of plot, it would get boring after about 3. Lol.

Thanks! I hope you do write some, I much prefer reading angst to fluff. And I'll be catching up on your work asap! I promise!

Oh that was adorable. So sweet.
Fluffy and beautiful and perfect.
I really enjoyed it, obviously.
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you lots

seriously? Thank you all over again!
From: sillyrambler Date: July 15th, 2007 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
That was fantastic. Normally this fluffy balls sickens me, but I was in the lovey dovey mood and this one was just done soooo damn well :D
Looking forward to more of these lovely prompt stories.
prompting_sam From: prompting_sam Date: July 15th, 2007 10:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't usually read it if I can help it. I much prefer a chaptered fic where they have to work to get to the lovey dovey stage, but there is a lack of Frerard fluff so I'm gonna attempt to fill it. And the fact that you don't read it, but enjoyed mine[I think] means alot to me. Seriously.

Hope you like the rest and they don't sicken you too much =]
nordic_nymph From: nordic_nymph Date: September 18th, 2007 05:48 am (UTC) (Link)
this is really really beautiful. i love the whole concept of it.
silencing_sam From: silencing_sam Date: September 18th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
thank you =]

I hope you don't mind me asking, but how did you come across this? I haven't written or updated anything for this journal for ages, and it was a surprise to see that I had comments on here! lol...
nordic_nymph From: nordic_nymph Date: September 18th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, i stopped reading for a while and have like three or four monthes of entries to catch up on. so i found it back in the archives of mychemicalslash.

This was truly the most beautiful thing I've ever read.

I was just having a break from studying and I came across this fic and oh, I'm so happy I did, it really improved my mood.
The idea of Frank, sneaking to Gee's bed and whispering stuff to him, being near him and sending all of the mentioned to Gerard's dreams, making him realize he's in love, is so fucking adorable. I could read the part over and over again.

Wonderful idea, you did a great job <3

Your ff is amazing! It's so cute,fluffy and wonderful! You gave me a lot of positive emotions, dear author.

I want to ask you a favour. Can I translate your fic for Russian Ficbook?

Sorry for mistakes, I think, my English is not brilliant xD

I will be waiting for your answer.
