I AM THE PLOT, BABE: A VILLAINESSES COMMENT FICATHON  

A comment ficathon dedicated to the women who shape the story.  A villainess is any woman who is simply not "good", whether she plays the traditional roles of protagonist or antagonist, whether she narrates her own story (Cersei Lannister, to use an example from the banner) or is seen through the lens of someone else's (Bellatrix Black).  She can be fictional, historical, contemporary; from the books, from the movies, from music: if she's a villainous woman, she's in!


HOW TO PROMPT
Simple: leave a comment with fandom, character name, and prompt.  The prompt can be anything, from a line of poetry or a song lyric, to a quote directly from the woman herself, to a fic you've always wanted written about her.  Anything goes!

HOW TO FILL
Reply to the prompt comment with your fic.  In the subject line, put the title of your fic, the characters in it, and rating; be sure to include any pertinent trigger warnings.  Then link to your fill in the "filled" thread!

PROMOTION
Please feel more than free to promote the ficathon! You can use the banner above or make your own (and if you do, tell me so I can post it here).  If you're using the above banner, here's the code for LJ promotion:

Rosary | BSG (Six/Gaius), PG-13
"Do you believe in God, Gaius?"

He laughs the first time she says it, tips back his head with a shout--he's drunk and she's luminous in white, all long lines and a focused, earnest stare. Too earnest, too intent, unblinking and deadly sincere. He stops laughing.

"I--do you?"

"Of course."

The words are clear and crisp and he laughs again, nervously, the slightly muddled voice in the back of his mind replaying the question, noting the curious tilt of her head, pausing to wonder at the lack of plurality. "I can't say I've ever given it much thought," he says, and she leans forward, slow and sharp and smelling of sex.

"God has given thought to you."

"Yes, well, perhaps, but I'm a scientist, you see--faith isn't quite my area of expertise as it were. Evidence and experimentation are important to me, and you can't experiment on the gods, so I rather doubt I'll ever be convinced."

She flashes a broad, perfect grin, and he doesn't know whether he should be afraid.

~~~

The skin beneath his fingers is warm and smooth; he slides his hands across it, wraps his arms around her waist, moans into her mouth as she drags her nails across his scalp. Everything is gasping breaths and wicked tongue, the imprint of her teeth in his shoulder and the glide of her lips on his.

A slow, maddening hand traces a line from his neck to the inside of his thigh. He shudders and swears--"by all the gods"--and a small, hysterical part of him wonders if that's prayer, if his words fly up to divine beings, if he is heard by anyone but her.

She pushes him against a wall, hard, and slips the straps of her dress off her shoulders, letting it fall to her feet. Stepping forward, she leans down, the soft hiss of a whisper sounding in his ear.

"God loves you, Gaius Baltar."

He could be convinced.
