The Christmas Bear (Mel x Barbara)Mel wasn’t looking forward to Christmas. He loved Christmas. All the jolly mood in the air, the caroling, the happy couples holding hands, kissing under the mistletoe…. He loved it.The Christmas Bear (Mel x Barbara) by VioletLavender
Or at least he used to. Seeing all the merriment this year got him down.
As usual, the crowds piled up this time of year, and he couldn’t get through them even to buy a simple paper notebook.
His breakup with Judy Krustofski didn’t help much, either.
He pushed his way through, and after about an hour and a half, he finally had his notebook.
He made his way to the cash register.
Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a heavy green-haired woman. She was outside, ringing a bell for donations. He recognized her as Barbara, a former colleague. In college, they discussed acting courses and Fine Art.
He remembered when she came to see the Krusty show. Afterwards, she let him use her first aid kit (the company one had been empty for weeks). He was glad for that. Not only that, she
Jar of Hearts - (sorta Krusty x Lois)I'd read all the letters she sent him. (I had to, he was dyslexic, after all). She seemed to love him very much. Though he admitted to me once that he was enjoying his time with her, but that he never considered their relationship as more than a fling. Clearly he hadn't told her that, because she thought they'd get married, sooner or later.Jar of Hearts - (sorta Krusty x Lois) by VioletLavender
He told me he'd break up with her the next day.
I heard everything. The 21-year old girl fan ran crying out of his office.
Oh, Krusty, how could you...?
I wasn't expecting what came next. He honestly gave me no preparation.
"Well, looks like I'll be sleeping alone tonight. Unless you want to give it a go."
What? He was asking me out?! Directly after a break up?!
I found my words quickly. "Krusty, you manipulated that poor girl, and now you think I'm going to go out with you?!"
After all this time, all this devotion and care and forgiveness, I was only the rebound girl...?
I really thought he could change, but every day, he seemed to get worse.

tears form in my eyes.
He saw me again tonight, and we talked. We had dinner.
He told me he’d let me see your contract tomorrow.
He keeps telling me that, keeps calling me back.
I know he probably enjoys the fact that I’m the girl he could never have
in high school, and my seeing him like this gives him a sort of thrill.
Most pretty girls must dump him within a week. But I stick around because I’m desperate. All I want to do is protect you, and he knows it.
I went straight home to you.
I’m afraid of these wicked games he plays.
But I’m more terrified of him hurting you,
Worse than what’s needed for the sake of a joke.
You are my life.
You make me laugh.
You love me for who I am, rather than what I look like,
When no other man could see that.
I know I try too hard to impress people,
We both do.
I never loved either of us less for it.
When others turned their noses up at my obscure art,
You loved it.
You saw my paintings and
Hi, my (user)name is VioletLavender. I hope to make new friends here, have fun, and become a better artist. Thanks for visiting! |
Sorry, but I'll no longer be returning llamas. It's just a little frustrating when all you get are llamas and nobody looks at your work...
What I do:
Realistic animal portrayals (well, somewhat. XD)
Silverwing and bat art
Sideshow Mel/Barbara fanfiction and art
Will possibly edit this page some more when I have the time...
Mel is my baby right now. You'll be seeing more art of him recently. Though that doesn't mean he's the only character I'll draw from now on. I still do have a couple of Silverwing ideas.
