drabble meme  
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays to all of you enjoying festivities and vacations. I myself am finally, finally off (I was working until noon Friday). Things have been crazy the past few days and I'm exhausted so it's nice to finally have some time off.

I'm hoping to get some good work done on the tail-end of my original, fic but I also want to have a little fanfiction fun on the side. So, if anyone would care to participate here is a little drabble meme.

Drabble meme snitched and tweaked from Tumblr:

1. Give me a character or pairing, from a universe/fandom I know, and you enjoy.

2. I’ll hit ‘shuffle’ in my music collection, and I will write you a drabble based on the song you picked.

3. If the song is horrible, or I can’t work with it, I’ll hit Shuffle again - but that’s a last-ditch caveat. I will do my best to make something with every song. No matter how absurd.

Song: On the Wing by Owl City
On the Wing–- Owl City

Breathe and I'll carry you away into the velvet sky
And we'll stir the stars around
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay
And plummet out of sight and sound

The open summer breeze will sweep you through the hills
Where I live in the alpine heights
Below the Northern Lights, I spend my coldest nights
Alone, awake and thinking of the weekend we were in love


Tufts of snow tumbled from the sky, settling in Geoffrey's mop of hair as he stood, staring into the curtain of white flakes. The northern hills of Crimea were remote indeed– the perfect hiding place for the rebels Bastion had heard reports of. Here, winter came early and heavy, but Geoffrey's troops had come prepared with fur lined boots and jackets, tents and blankets.

A gust of wind set the snowflakes dancing, a jig that tossed them up into the air only to come sprawling back down in wild eddies. What was it Elincia had said that day? All those years ago, before the war...

He had been walking by the stables when he'd looked up to find the air full of feathers and a pegasus knight circling low as she came in for a landing. He'd to hurried meet her, worried that her mount might have been injured.

"Princess Elincia," he said between breaths. "Are you well?"

"Yes. Of course I am. Geoffrey, whatever is wrong?"

"The feathers," he said, gesturing towards the tufts scattered around her pegaus' hooves.

The tinkling laugh tumbling from her lips set him at ease. "She's molting," Elincia said, brushing her hand down one feathered wing. When she turned her hand over and held it out, her palm was covered with downy feathers.

Smiling, Elincia stepped closer to run her fingers through his hair and brush out the pegasus down. "It always reminds me of snow," she said, but he could not speak for the thrumming of his heart.

Another gust of wind sent the snow whipping into Geoffrey's face, taking with it the warmth of the memory. He didn't turn at the tread approaching from behind, the muted squeak of boots on the fresh snow.

"Everything is in order at camp, general," Kieran announced with jaunty enthusiasm.

"Thank you, Kieran."

"Is anything the matter, general? If you believe I've been remiss in my duties–"

"No, Kieran. You've been doing a fine job. I was only... thinking."

"About what, sir? I would be honoured if I could assist you in any way possible."

Geoffrey brushed the snowflakes from his hair, a hint of a smile on his face. "About pegasus feathers."
