I have begun a “flash fic a day” challenge and I swear to The Lord I will NOT fail. I originally intended to have only original fiction so I could expand upon my stories but it’s too late in the night to post the story I want. Instead I am opening up with fan fiction focused on my favorite gem: Lapis Lazuli. (Hence the reason this is #0) Since its at night and this isn’t tied to my original fiction I can craft this safely for posting. It’s based on a flash fiction prompt by Nancy Stohlman: #15: Write a story that involves a reoccurring and/or deep dark fear. This will be interesting. Please enjoy!
You are mine!! You are ALWAYS SUPPOSE TO BE MINE!!!!
No, Peridot. He is mine and I am taking him with me.
She stays on the cold ground and let’s her tears splash upon the solid-water floor. Her actions on that day disgusted her—forever ingrained, in her memory and their memory. She hasn’t spoken to the Crystal Gems since her embarrassing defeat. She wants to tell him sorry but all she can do is wallow in her pillar of water and cry.
“They still remember it. I know they do. It’s even evidenced on that Connie girl’s camera.
My past is not today. My past is not today.
I led him on, that’s what they think. I told him how I felt despite not knowing him truly—he knows it. He remembers. Will he hate me for it when I become a diamond gem?”
Lapis looks to the stars for guidance. She cannot ask Blue Diamond because Blue Diamond is dead and gone (trapped…in a bubble). She is alone on this issue and must guide herself by herself.
“What will my diamond think when—or if—I tell her?”
Blue Diamond used to say “Lapis, you are so sweet and kind. Don’t let other gems tear you down. Stand proud, as my gem.”
Whatever may happen, Lapis cannot risk it and she cannot let it rule her. She finally gets off the floor and stands on her own two feet. She has already decided what she wants to do. She will ask for an apology and then she will live as she always should have done.
“Okay, Steven. I am coming.”
With a strong push of her wings she sets off for Beach City.
Thank you for reading!!! I hope this wasn’t too weird. It is Lapis x Steven. He is older in this and she tries to take him away because she didn’t want to lose his friendship to Connie and the other gems. This cases her to act out and confess her love—which might not have been love to begin with. She fell in love with his character and does not truly love him.
As I was writing this I NEEEEED a sad song to listen to. That song is Heavy Price Paid from the original Halo 2 soundtrack. I swear that game has the best main menu music ever. Also, the picture used as a featured image inspired the story. That image + the song are a great combination. I would like to know who the artist is and if there is a full size version.
