365 Challenge: on blood, guilt, and redemption...

This entry is part 40 of 52 in the series 365 Challenge

365 pieces of poetry and fiction to prompts. Poetry, songs, colors, favorite lines, etc. I want to write original work, but knowing me, the occasional bit of fandomness will sneak in. This is more exciting to me than I can say for some reason, and I’m hoping you will all help me as I reach out to create an average of one piece a day.


How Many Ways Can You Make Me Bleed?

Prompt:
Rating: K

They told Prodigy his mental shields existed for a reason. They didn’t mention the reason might be horrifying.

   

Accounting for Redemption

Canon: Kingdoms and Thorn
Characters: Jennifer "Shift" Haller, and Justus "Defender" Ellison
Pairings:
Prompt: "I got red in my ledger. I'd like to wipe it out."
Rating: T
Notes:

How do you account for redemption in a world where survival is the only law?

Justus once believed that his decisions were being guided by a God whose will was sovereign. Now he doesn’t. These sins were his own and he does not know what to do with them.

   

Counting Heartbeats

Canon: Kingdoms and Thorn
Characters: Jennifer "Shift" Haller, and Justus "Defender" Ellison
Pairings:
Prompt: I was with Justus, wanting them all to regret the monsters they'd become.
Rating: T
Notes:

Follow-up to “Accounting for Redemption.”


She didn't have the luxury of regret.

Shift may not have had a soul, but she had a heart and for some d— reason it was still beating. And she had Justus. She just didn’t know how to save him.
