Fic meme!  
Ganked from absolutely everywhere on my f-list:

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll tell you what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Note that I'm not offering to write a fic to describe what happened, sorry, (because wow, that would be a job and a half!) but I'll at least give you a few sentences telling you what I think happened. Fair warning: it's likely to involve a lot of variations on the sentence: "Jeeves and Bertie go back to their apartment and screw like crazed weasels." :D

In other writing news, my Jeeves-muse has reappeared at long last! Hallelujah! I've got about 2700 words written of the Philip!fic (the sequel to Abington Chase, involving Bertie and Jeeves running into Philip Leighton), and it finally feels like writing is a joy again, instead of a tearing-my-hair-out-and-staring-at-a-blank-page struggle. Oh, how I've missed that! Yayyyyyyy! *worships Jeeves-muse*

ETA: One caveat on the meme thing - in my little J/W world, time never passes, and Jeeves and Bertie are forever young and in love and in the mystical England-that-never-happened between the wars but with no great depression. So if you ask me what happened far in their future, I'll have no real answer for you, other than to say that they're still having adventures relating to Bertie's constant unwanted engagements and scheming friends, and they're still screwing like crazed weasels every night. ;)
How do I feel?: creativecreative

Ooh, you are a strict taskmaster (taskmistress?). I love it!

Well, let's see. First, he'd probably be trying to count how many days it is until the next birthday or major holiday. If that little exercise didn't exhaust his poor brain and send him off to sleep (*g*), he'd be thinking of how wonderful Jeeves is, and how brave, and how it really isn't fair what Jeeves had to go through, and how lucky he is to have Jeeves, and how the next day he's going to tell Jeeves to get rid of that pair of socks that Jeeves never really liked, and how he's going to protect Jeeves and make sure that Jeeves never has to go through anything unpleasant ever again. ;)

Seriously, though, I think he'd be a little bit overwhelmed by what he's heard, but overall, I think he's just really glad that Jeeves came out of it (relatively) okay, and he'd appreciate Jeeves even more and fall even more deeply in love with him. Then I think he'd sort of put it out of his mind (not like purposely block it, but I don't think Bertie dwells on unpleasant things) and sleep peacefully in Jeeves's arms.

Jeeves, I think, might be a bit more shaken than Bertie would be, having just re-lived his very worst experiences. He'd be relieved to have unburdened himself, and very relieved that Bertie wasn't freaked out and didn't hold it against him, but Jeeves dwells on things more, so he might be more affected. He might even have nightmares for a few nights after having dredged this up.

Jeeves? With nightmares? *shudders*

You simply must someday show how Bertie deals with nightmaring Jeeves.

Oooh, actually, I could do that in the fic I'm working on now, where they run into Philip. Because that's likely to dredge up old, bad memories for poor Jeeves as well! I'll certainly see if I can work it in there. Thanks for the idea, m'dear!

You're welcome! I'm certainly looking forward to the Philip fic, and anything else you put together. ;)

OH! *cuddles Jeeves!* and *cuddles Bertie!* Poor loves! I hope that Bertie is all for snuggling after nightmares (of course he is, what am I saying)!

Thanks, love, this is precisely what I wanted to know. I'm glad that Bertie doesn't dwell too hard on the darker side of life, and even gladder that Jeeves was able to escape the situation (reletively) unscathed. Still...*cuddles them tighter*

You do know, however, that I'm going to have to ask for an advance on the Philip fic. :)

You know, I sort of think that Bertie is a pretty sound sleeper, and I doubt Jeeves wakes up screaming or anything. He probably just wakes with a gasp or something, and Bertie is still peacefully sleeping. So Jeeves would lay awake, just taking comfort from Bertie's presence, and he'd hold him closer, and Bertie would kind of sleepily cuddle into Jeeves's arms, without really waking up. Then Jeeves would just hold Bertie, without falling back asleep, until it was time for him to get up to begin the day.


Yes, they can both use cuddles! *cuddles Bertie and Jeeves*

And, of course you get an advance! :D
