Pilots Bingo: Season 4

People are still writing Bingos and what I love about so many of these (if not all), is that they are all single stories or themes woven in five parts. I encourage EVERYONE to read them. All of the bingos this week are gorgeous and bittersweet and full of love! <3<3<3PILOTS<3<3<3

Season 3 Bingos:
Double Dog Dare by embolalia [PG-13]
A Fresh Start by callmeonetrack [PG]

The Twist
The twist is still in effect, which means that no drabbles can occur during Season 4. All other seasons and AUs are possible!

Bingo #1- Moving Forward Sometimes Takes a Few Steps Back
I know this is kind of toeing the line for the twist, but it's post-finale, so not technically taking place in S4.


Back To The Beginning, Laura (PG)

Earth wasn't quite the bright shiny future Lee'd been hoping against hope for. It seemed like in a flash, everything, everyone he'd known were gone. His father, Laura, Kara, until he was left to travel the untouched hills and valleys alone.

Lee began to see them everywhere. The vibrant red of Laura's hair in a sunset. The gold of Kara's hair in sunlight, her green eyes in the rippling grass. He follows those familiar colors, willing to go wherever they take him.

Eventually, he finds the field. Memories, the urge to run, rise up, yet something compels him to stay.


Remembrance, Ellen Tigh (PG)

He stands in that field, looking around at the familiar scenery. The mountains where he'd trekked to the first time he was here. The long blades of grass waving gently in the wind.

All was the same as he remembered, except for one major detail missing: Kara. Memories of her and him together, laughing about Ellen Tigh's latest antics, surround him, bringing a sad smile to his face. He'd missed her every moment of each day, but never so much as now, when he feels so close to her it seems like she's right behind him.

So he turns around.


Recognization, It's really me (PG)

That well-known shade of gold he's been seeing here and there for months is the first thing his eyes take in.

His mind struggles to process what's right in front of him, and his first thought is that he must be crazy-- beyond insane, really-- because there's no way that this isn't a figment of his desperate imagination. And yet, after several blinks, she's still there, standing in front of him.

He's sure he must look completely shell-shocked, jaw hitting the ground and all, because her smile morphs into a trademark smirk as she steps closer.

"It's really me, Lee."


Breaking The Cycle, We thought you were dead (PG)

In seconds, she is wrapped up in his arms, any disbelief cast to the side when he feels real, solid weight in his arms and smooth skin to run his hands over.

He speaks into her hair, "Gods, Kara, you... we thought you were dead..."

She tightens her grip on him when she feels him shaking slightly, emotions and shock overwhelming him. "I know, and I'm sorry for that. But I always come back to you."

He steps back slightly, studying her. "For how long? How long until I have to lose you again?"

"This time, I'm here to stay."


Moving Forward, I know the way (PG)

He saw that she was serious about staying this time, and nodded slightly, stepping closer again to embrace her.

"I'm glad you're here."

She smiled, "Me too."

They stood like that, wrapped up in each other for a long time, just enjoying being in each other's company again. The sky was beginning to color as the sun started to set when they finally separated.

Lee spoke first, "So, where should we go from here? Got any secret paradises I should know about?"

Kara laughed, "Got bright shiny futures on your mind, Apollo? I know the way. Follow me."

"Wilco, Starbuck."

Thank you so much!

Re: Bingo #1- Moving Forward Sometimes Takes a Few Steps Back
Awwwww, she came back! *sigh* I love the first drabble most of all, especially the details about how he saw bits of them everywhere. Poor bb, I'm glad you didn't leave him alone at the end of this one.

Re: Bingo #1- Moving Forward Sometimes Takes a Few Steps Back
Poor bb, I'm glad you didn't leave him alone at the end of this one.

I couldn't do that to him-- my head!canon dictates that eventually Kara comes back because it's what she always does and so I don't have to leave him all alone.

Thank you so much for the feedback!

Re: Bingo #1- Moving Forward Sometimes Takes a Few Steps Back
"Wilco, Starbuck."

That is the best ending! I love that she came back (for good). And your icon!!!!!!!!

Re: Bingo #1- Moving Forward Sometimes Takes a Few Steps Back
Thanks! I am rather proud of that ending line. I was struggling to figure out a way to wrap that last drabble up and I only had few more words left, then I thought of that and it just fit perfectly.

I love The Princess Bride, so when I saw this icon I had pretty much the same reaction. It's made by shipperfey if you want to use it.

Thanks! I love it when they're all banter-y for a change! :D

Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)


The Quorum’s decision is controversial, but mostly accepted.


“Those frakking bastards,” Kara swears, banging her locker closed.

Lee winces; he should’ve anticipated this. “Starbuck-“

“Don’t, Lee! You know this is bullshit. I can do a hell of a lot more for the fleet in my viper than I can on my back for some mouth-breather!”

His first thought is: Not necessarily from what I’ve heard. He wisely keeps it to himself. “The repopulation program is a logical solution-”

“Oh really? So you’re just frakking fine with this?”

He thinks of the match notification slip in his pocket and smiles.

Memorial Wall

When Lee gets off CAP the next afternoon, Starbuck’s gone missing. He’s sure she’s gotten her slip.

He goes searching, finds her at the memorial wall.

“So…” he starts.

“How long have you known?”

“Just since yesterday.”

She nods, stares ahead. He follows her gaze to the wall. The picture from her locker, ripped so only Zak shows, is pinned there. Lee swallows hard.

“Kara, there are ways to -” He stops. “We don’t have to -” Lee inhales. “If you don’t want me-” He can’t finish.

She looks at him finally, sad eyes shining. “That’s never been our problem.”


“What’s up with you and the CAG?” Boomer asks.

“What? Nothing! Not a frakking thing.” The words come fast and sharp, and she flushes.

“Right. That’s why you’ve been a total headcase all week and he keeps giving you puppy eyes.”

Kara takes a breath. She has to tell someone. Her fingers shake as she pulls the slip out of her pocket. Boomer’s eyes widen. “Oh.”

Kara’s fist curls, crumpling it. What the hell is she gonna do?

“You’re lucky, you know.”


“Sure,” Boomer says quietly. “How many people you think got matched to someone who already loves them?”

I Believe You

Boomer’s words get stuck in her head. Kara wants to believe it’s just Sharon yanking her chain, but deep down…she’s always known, hasn’t she?

“Okay.” she tells his back later.

Lee turns. “Okay?”

“Let’s do our patriotic duty or whatever.” She shrugs, pressing her lips to his quickly.

Lee’s mouth is warm and his lips part under hers, but then he pulls away. “Kara, stop.”

She recoils. “You don’t want-”

“No, I do!” Lee pulls her closer. “But… not here. Not like this.”

“What? You want roses and candles?”

He kisses her softly, whispers, “I want to do it right.”

Six Hours and Change

Six hours and change later, she finds a note and a lumpy pillowcase on her rack.

“Meet me at 2100, Room 307, Causeway D. Wear this. Please.”

Kara pulls out a pile of blue silk and her eyebrows raise.

Still, at 2100 she’s tugging nervously on the dress as the hatch opens.

There’s no roses or candles. But there’s a real bed in these quarters and Lee’s wearing a suit.

“What is all this?”

He pulls her inside and glides a finger down her neck, tugging the scarf aside to kiss her throat. She shivers.

“This is our chance, Kara.”

Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
GUH. I love this whole thing, but the first three are just so angsty and delicious. "That's never been our problem," KILLED ME.

Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Thank you bb! This one is my favorite of the drabble sets! I had a tough time with that line! So glad it works!
May. 5th, 2012 03:03 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
One of my favorite premiss that the show completely ignored. This is completely adorable, especially Kara wrapping her head around Lee being in love with her. And she wears the dress, aw.
May. 5th, 2012 03:08 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
I have such a love for those early cliche premises!! Thank you so much. Oh yes, she wears that dress...though probably not for long. ;)
May. 5th, 2012 04:28 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Aw *Squishes them* I love how everyone knows... I bet someone rigged the slips.
May. 5th, 2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Hee, it totally amuses me to imagine Bill and Laura plotting it!
May. 6th, 2012 03:01 am (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Okay everyone, things will be a lot better around here if those two finally bang... how can we make it happen.
May. 7th, 2012 05:11 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
I bet Bill is oblivious as usual, but plotting and rigging things is more up Laura's street, isn't it? (as is noticing pilots as distinctly not brother and sister, lol)

Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Awww, sweet baby pilots.

Let’s do our patriotic duty or whatever

I've totally got the song from Grease 2 stuck in my head now.

Wear this. Please.

This note worked so well. It was the Please that made it. <3
May. 5th, 2012 11:26 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Oh ha ha, I didn't even think of that Grease song, but you're right! You're so right! hee. ;)

They so seldom use please and thank you with each other that it's so meaningful when they do! <3

Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Ooooh, I love these!!!! oddly, I'm not fond of pilotbabies as a trope, but these are just so perfect, I had the hugest grin on my face from the end of the first drabble to the bit with the dress. Sharon is the perfect choice of bystander to tell it like it is, and I love that Kara sort of freaks out a little at the idea of Lee being in love with her and goes for Lee in the way she's most accustomed to but then he stops her and it isn't angry or sad-making but they give me ALL THE SQUEE instead.

Also, this - “That’s never been our problem.” just sums them up so well here. I rambled a lot, but you really are amazing :)

Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
Thanks! I'm usually not a babyfic fan/writer either! Lately I'm all about the shmoop/fluff though. But I did change direction on this one because it was originally going to end with a baby drabble.

Anyway, regardless, THANK YOU! I liked this kind of weird circumstance begetting a normal, real chance for them to have a relationship! <3
May. 7th, 2012 12:18 pm (UTC)
Re: Bingo #4 - A Perfect Match (PG)
I totally love this! It's perfect, the last lines in memorial wall and boomer are fantastic. Awesome!
