Not Even a Glide and a Jump, Sorry
So, considering this comm only exists because of today's date, and hasn't had a challenge since 2008, it's ridiculous for me to post from it. But I can be ridiculous as anyone, so here it is.

Happy Leap Day, everyone! And by "everyone" I mean the handful of you who are still lurking around LJ. Come in and say hi. If you've taken any interesting leaps or fanciful flights, let us know.

Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to. - George Seaton

Title: Blips on a Radar
Rating: PG
Fandom: Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
Warning/Spoilers: All of the Hana-Kimi manga series
Disclaimer: I do not own Hana-Kimi. Also, a portion of the dialog during the wedding scene is taken from 'soul-society_terrad' scanlations of the scene in the canon.
Word Count: 6265
Author's Note: Thanks to Trialia, DoubleL27, and Cinaed for beta checks and pre-reads. If you don't know the canon, that's all right. If you're really worried, check the article on Wikipedia.
Characters/Ship: Kayashima Taiki and Nakatsu Shuichi. This story does contain slight slash, but it isn't really a slash fic.
Summary: Think of a radar screen in a ship in a movie. The line moves around in a steady circle, marking everything that surrounds the ship. Sometimes an object will show up that can't be identified or is misunderstood. Some objects move away and others surprise by staying. This story is about beginnings and endings, the objects that remain constant or don't, the people who will stay or won't, and all the other blips on the radar.

'Faith is like radar that see through the fog-- the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.' ~Corrie ten BoomCollapse )

The Spirit of Gravity, SGA, Gen
Title: The Spirit of Gravity
Author: entwashian
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Gen (SGA-1 team!fic)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2600
Spoilers: Through episode 2.08 "Conversion"
Summary: A series of team!vignettes that take place after 2.03 (Runner) and before 2.09 (Aurora).
A/N: My prompt quote was: "He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying." -Friedrich Nietzsche
When I saw the quote was from Neitzsche, I definitely had to look it up for context! It comes from Thus Spake Zarathustra, Part III, Chapter LV: The Spirit of Gravity, Section 2. You can read the entire selection here. This chunk of the book is (more or less) about how a man needs to look inside himself to find out what his values truly are, as opposed to having someone tell him what is good/right.

The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings. -- Sir James Matthew Barrie, 'The Little White Bird'

Inspirational Quote: 
"Why fly? Simple. I'm not happy unless there's some room between me and the ground." ~ Richard Bach
