100 x 100 fanfic challenge  
The rules of the 100x100 challenge are simple: Write a 100-word story using one of the prompts below about one, or both of, Meredith and Derek and post it as a comment. Prompts can only be used once.

The challenge, of course, is writing a story in 100 words. I'll update the table with links as prompts are used.

Feel free to comment on other entries, but try to remember to keep it in the appropriate thread.

Have fun! :)

022 - Pizza

So, first one to take up this challenge. My first Grey's Anatomy fanfiction. My first fanfiction ever written in English. Please bear that in mind when you comment :). Enjoy...

022 - Pizza

"I’ll sit this one out …"
"What? We agreed to take turns, come on…" Derek playfully bumped her shoulder. In front of them lay his formerly immaculate blueprints, which a joint revision had slowly turned into their blueprints.
"It’s the kitchen!" She glared at him. "Remember when I tried to surprise you with dinner? And that was just a freaking frozen pizza!" It had taken them days to air out the trailer.
"I could teach you how to cook," Derek suggested.
"Right," Meredith scoffed. "Which in my case would take forever!"
"Well, I guess, it’s good we’ve got forever then…"

He told her once to take the rest on faith.

It didn't work so well for her then, never really has.

She thought, after that notable disaster, that she would never take anything on faith again. That choosing faith over evidence was a stupid, stupid thing to do.

And it is. It's a fundamentally stupid decision.

But as she stands there next to him, his hand clutching hers, she knows that the only way to live an extraordinary life is to occasionally choose stupid, to take on faith that this time he won't break his vows. And neither will she.

She is beautiful in her simple, white dress, chewing the lipstick off her lips, her hands are visibly shaking. She makes her way slowly toward him, her eyes down, concentrating on each step, but when she's finally by his side her eyes get big and she smirks at him, like they share a great secret.

He grabs her hand and smiles wide. She is giving him her future, despite what they have done in the past and he won't let go this time. She's taking him on faith, and this time he is determined to live up to his promises.

After more than two months this was the first night she slept without tossing and turning and without desperately avoiding the huge empty space on the other side - his side - of her bed. Because that space was not empty after all. And she wasn't lying in her bed to begin with.

It also was the first night he slept without desperately hugging the pillow that had still smelled like lavender, even though her head had not touched it for more than two months. He always preferred being able to smell her hair and hug her in person anyway.

A/N: This challenge might get me addicted...

032 - Black
"The Yankees are terrible this year," she notes. He's eating cereal, she's eating cold leftover pasta that he made the night before, and they're sharing the New York Times.

"Oh, and how many championships have the Red Sox won in the past century?"

Rolling her eyes, Meredith replies. "That doesn't count. It's in the past. It's all about the now and the future."

Derek considers this for a moment over his black coffee. "You're absolutely right," he says, with all the seriousness he can muster.

"Nice try, but you're not getting off that easily."

He smirks. "Just thought I'd try."

Great one. I love this glimpse of a totally random morning of the happy and functional couple they'll become.

018 - Shelter
It feels… different. She can’t explain why, because the animal shelter still looks the same. Most kennels are still dimly lit and it still almost makes her cry to see the dejected looking dogs within.

She feels a tug on her hand and she starts to smile. It definitely is different this time. The last visit was about filling a void in her life. This visit is about filling the void in a dog’s life. She turns to see a young chocolate lab eagerly licking Derek’s hand. Derek’s eyes shine and she knows she has just met their new roommate.

Re: 018 - Shelter
So cute! I hope they get another dog (even though realistically, two doctors could never appropriately care for one, but hey, it's TV.)

027 - Stutter
Derek's arms bent awkwardly to knead his shoulder blades. "My back is beyond tense."

"Aww, poor baby," Meredith teased from the bathroom. "I'll be right there."

He wasn't expecting her to walk into the room naked or to swing a bottle of massage lotion across one outstretched finger.

"Wh-wh-what's all this?" His eyes glimmered as he watched her stroll towards the bed.

"Hmm, seems you've developed a stutter, too." She nudged him to roll over so she could unbutton his shirt. "Fortunately, I have the cure for both."

"And good bedside manner as well," he growled back, pulling her close.

020 - Foundation
"I never thought I'd ever get to see something like this," Meredith confessed almost apologetically. She knew it had been his dream for so long. And sometimes she still felt guilty, that it had taken her so long to start dreaming too.

"I know," Derek hugged her tighter. "That's why we're here."

He was right, because this had been her idea after all. And it wasn't just about seeing it for herself. She witnessed the foreman laying the first stone of their foundation and already knew that one day she'd recount this moment to their children over and over again.

008 - Smell
He realizes he never asked her about the flowery scent.

Right now all he can smell is coconut. He can easily identify that scent, because he is used to coconut. He even used to like it. At least he thinks he liked it. Now he honestly doesn’t know if he ever really did.

Because now the scent of coconut makes him dizzy. And not in good way. Not in the way the flowery scent always did. A scent which he would recognize anywhere, but still can’t put a name on.

He never thought he’d run out of time to ask.

003 - Obligation
After their final scene in 5.09 I had to write this...

Thank you”, Meredith said softly.

“For what?” Derek asked puzzled and tried to see her face in the darkness of their bedroom.

“For bringing her home and making up her bed and… ” Meredith paused. “I know you probably just felt obligated… I mean… you and me… we are …”

“It’s not an obligation”, Derek interrupted her gently and pulled her closer. “You are my family, Mer. And she is your sister. Which makes her my sister too.”

For a long moment neither of them said a word.

“Well… thank you”, Meredith whispered after a while, “for being my family.”

066 - Winter
Hey, is this thing still up? :P I'm bored, just thought I'd post something to kill my time. And I feel it is ridiculously crazy, but cute. :)


"It's snowing."

Meredith looked up from her second mug of coffee and Derek chuckles, his back turned to her as he looks out the window.

"It's snowing," He repeats, this time turning around to face his girlfriend. Meredith simply stared at him. "Meredith, it's snowing!"

"Yeah," she blinks, unable to keep the smile off her face as she watched Derek, "I know. It's winter. It's supposed to snow. Don't tell me this is the first time you've seen snow…"

"Yeah, but that's not the point."

"It's not? What is it then?"

"Snow sex?" Meredith laughs and Derek kisses her.

040 - Hands
Inspired by the crossover and the 5.16 promo and sneak


I can’t face her. Not now.

"You can’t save everyone, Derek."

I keep looking down at my hands. The hands that destroyed a happy couple’s future.

"You can’t. You’re not…" She hesitates. "You’re not God, Derek."

I try not to flinch when she softly grabs my hand.

"And I don’t want you to be." She whispers. "Because I’d probably go to jail for blasphemy. Wanting to marry God and all..."

A chuckle escapes my lips and turns into a sob, when I feel my tears starting to fall. Gods don’t cry, do they? But I don’t care. Not anymore.

070 - Change
5.19 seemed to have fueled my writing muse... there might be more later today. Is anyone else still following the thread / updating the prompts though ? Nevermind...

070 - Change

Life continued like nothing had changed. Which surprised her a little. Because everything had changed. But still… so little. They still were doctors. They had lives to save. Others than just their own.

And because they were doctors, she was used to not seeing him all day, except for short encounters in the hallways. Between rounds and surgeries. Between checking on Izzie and him treating Owen and her being Cristina’s person.

She felt the change though. The still unfamiliar weight on her ringfinger. Which she couldn’t stop touching. And neither could he, even if just in passing in the hallway…
