Argh, stalled!  
I'm feeling a bit stalled. Hm.

Anyone up for another round of prompts-and-ficlets? Um, just to switch it up this time, give me a pairing or character and some song lyrics or a quote or something and I'll give you some sort of something back. Yeah.

ETA: Feel free to keep prompt things coming, even though I've posted something since adding this, My plan is to keep writing things until Virus'verse 5 stops being such a jerk and lets me keep going. Right now I feel like it's stonewalling me. Ugh.

I ... oh, I kinda wanted to smack Cam - I too thought he was about to say "no" to John. There's just *so much* feeling in here, and this

And the words have been said, they’ve been put out there and he’s a little hollow, because they’ve been stuffed inside him for so long that they’ve left a little space behind.

and this

ressing their mouths together in a way that’s bizarrely hesitant, weirdly sweet,

and this

because it had nothing to do with nerve and more to do with not being able to keep it in any more, with the pressure building inside him until he had to let it out, had to say the words, had to tell Cam the absolute honest truth

is just lovely. Thank you. I had no ideas/expectations about what those lyrics might throw out, but this was just glorious.

I'm so glad you liked it :) I'd never heard the song before, so I looked it up online and listened to it, and this sort of popped into my head. I feel like this is what's going on inside of John all the time, but we don' get to see it because he puts on his stoic face.

The (sappy, romantic) part of me seems to think that when it comes to Cam, yup, John utterly loses his ability to keep up the 'stoic, I'm not really a feelings-kinda person' that he manages in the rest of his life.

The whole album (that was the title track) is pretty decent. Different voice, and different style to everything else I seem to find on the radio at the moment. Thanks again, for such an awesome reply to the prompt!
