Ahahaha. Boy, yesterday sure was Monday, wasn't it? :D This week's prompt will run until next Tuesday, as it did the last time your mod was a chocobohead.

This week's prompt is #34 - First Word, Last Word

Words telling a story come in many shapes and sizes, falling in whatever rhythm best suits the tale. Repetition, whether to drive home a point or show its opposite, is a literary tradition in its own right - and this week, we want you to play with it. ("It" being repetition, you silly 12-year-olds! Stop that right now!)

For this challenge, the point is simply this: your story must begin and end with the same word. Whether it's a character waxing poetic or delivering a dire warning, stumbling over a declaration of love or repeating an order at the drive-thru, find a way to begin and end on the same note.

But do it in just 100 words.  :3

Title: Guns blazing
Prompt: First word, last word

Series: OGC/BC
Team: Turks
Rating: PG-13

A/N: How’s that for guns blazin’, Jou? :D

Guns blazing

Doors splintering dramatically into the camera, the hero that crashes through, guns blazing and taking out the bad guys before walking out without a scratch... that was the image he had in his head when he signed up for the Turks at the age of seventeen.

An idiotic idea he considers it now, and tightens his grip around the magrod as he cautiously glances inside the warehouse, crawling with fully armed crooks. He signals Elena on the other side and takes a grenade from his belt. His grin is wicked as he throws it in and closes the metal doors.

Title: A Thin Red Gulf Between Duty and Honor
Author: joudama
Rating: PG
Prompt: First Word, Last Word
Character: Angeal
Team: Soldier
A/N: During the war in Wutai. This uses my personal jou-canon of Angeal having PTSD from the war, which is seriously the only reason I've ever been able to come up with to reasonably explain the way he snapped in Crisis Core, and why he so easily believes himself to be a monster.

--

Honor was a hard thing to hold onto in war.

Angeal tried. He tried so very hard. It was the only thing he thought he had days when the air was thick with the smell of blood, and nights when his dreams were full of burning screams.

He loved fighting the enemy; fighting men with guns and swords and materia.

But when duty said his enemy was villages of women and children with fear of him in their eyes, with blood on his face and ash in his hair, duty made it too easy to lose that hold on honor.

Prompt: First Word, Last Word
A/N: I should be sleeping right now...

--

Summer in Midgar sucked.

Angeal had no problem letting everyone he knew know it, either. Most people were used to Gen whinging about every little thing, but there were times when Angeal had him beat. Namely, the Midgar summer.

It was hot. It was humid. He spent every day contemplating shaving his head at least once, and every second not on duty or in public in his boxers. In front of a fan. Brain melting.

So he didn't get Gen decked out in his leathers, blissfully aware of the heat and smiling faintly, engrossed in his "light reading for summer."

Team: Turks
Prompt: First Word, Last Word
A/N: ...yeah, OK, so I like this prompt. :p

--

"You know how many?" Reno said. His tone was utterly light and conversational.

Rude knew that voice; knew how much of a cover it was at times. He knew Reno better than anyone - and perhaps the same could be said for Reno knowing him - and he knew that voice.

"How many what?" the scientist - the scientist who had been attempting to smuggle out sensitive documents on certain ShinRa experiments to the media - said. The decidedly worse-for-wear scientist.

Reno grinned. "How many hits it takes to break every bone in your body? No? So how 'bout I show you?"

Prompt: First Word, Last Word

--

Drops were falling from the sky.

She is only barely conscious of them. There's so much pain, it's like it's all that is in the world.

Drops of something. Rain, tears, blood, Tifa doesn't know.

Everything hurts so very much. Her stomach, her heart, all of it hurts, and she feels blackness at the edges of her sight and her consciousness, pulling her back from the delirium of pain and into a blessed oblivion.

Her eyes crack open briefly, and sees Zangan, bracer readied. "Be strong, girl," he whispers, and before she passes out, from his eyes, a tear drops.

A/N: I figure Gen and Angeal are about eight for this one. XD

--

"Destiny calls!" Genesis said with a whoop, waving his stick - or "Amakuni," a fanciful name from one of his storybooks - around. "Willst thou come with me, or willst thou be a coward?"

Angeal grinned, then looked around quickly for a stick of his own. It took a while, and Genesis kept his pose the whole time, although his toe was tapping with impatience and he was squirming a bit.

Finally found one, and quickly stripped off the extra bits. Genesis grinned. "You have your Osafune, and now, to war! To glory!"

"To honor!" Angeal yelled, chasing after Genesis. "And destiny!"

Title: E lucevan le stelle
Author: joudama
Word Count: 100
Rating: PG
Team: SOLDIER
Prompt: First Word, Last Word
A/N: The title comes from an aria, "E lucevan le stelle," and means "And the stars shone," but the idea for the word "stars" actually comes from Dante, because the last word of each book of the Divine Comedy was "stelle," "stars."

--

Stars shone brilliantly in the sky, and Sephiroth, for a moment, felt his breath taken away.

He had never seen the starts before - not for real, in the sky. He'd studied them, of course, memorized the names, constellations, but this--

The sky was so very vast, and he was so very small. But he was free.

He looked at the night sky often, in Wutai.

Until his first real battle. When it was done, he looked up, and did not feel small. There was no vast sky; only the flames he had caused, licking up to and blocking the stars.

Title: Itsuka
Author: joudama
Word Count: 100
Character: Aerith
Rating: G
Team: SOLDIER
Prompt: First Word, Last Word
A/N: The title comes from a Crystal Kay song, "Memory Box," because of the line "Itsuka, I will be alright" ("One day, I'll be alright.")

--

"Alright," Aerith said, taking a deep breath and closing her eyes. She had put this off for too long. She had been silly about this for too long. It was time to grow up.

Holding on to hope was a wonderful thing, but there was a point where it hurt more than it helped. She knew she had to let go. So she wrote her last letter.

She paused at the end, and then wrote "Good-bye." The pen shook, a little, in her hands.

Zack was gone. He was never coming back. One day, she - this - would be alright.

Title: Sufficient Kittens
Characters/Pairings: Reeve/Rufus
Rating: G
Team: Turks
Word Count: 100

Kittens were a rambunctious sort of pain, Reeve knew quite well, but Dark Nation kittens were a completely new ball of wax.

It was the tentacles, really, he mused as Rufus went to get the cure materia. The kitten's little tentacles could leave nasty welts. And of course, convincing the little monster that his hand wasn't lunch and therefore shouldn't be gnawed on was also hurting a bit.

"How did you train the first one?" Reeve asked, as Rufus carefully pried the little thing off Reeve's hand and offered it a bowl of meat.

Rufus grinned. "You don't train kittens."

--

Gentle.

That's how he was, even though Angeal suspected no one knew it but him.

Genesis was gentle. With a few things, at least, but it was those things that really showed who Gen was inside. It was the way his fingers caressed the spines of his books, as if they had been more precious than all the money his family had. It was the way his fingers had moved over the piano when he was playing something soft and delicate and full of emotion, coaxing the emotion out.

"You're a monster now," Genesis said, and his voice was gentle.
