Made Up Title Game

Phoenix said: Another made up title for you cause this is fun: Battle of <strike>Wits</strike> Snark (I know asks don’t let you do html but… )

I adjusted the title slightly to line up with the idea that came to mind: Battle of Wits/Snark

A two part story in which Bowman Leafwing meets Sherlock Holmes. You could expect a lot of arguing in circles between these two on the best of days, and I wouldn’t give them the best day at all.

Part 1 is the battle of wits as Sherlock discovers this tiny, leafy thing fluttering around (perhaps it’s Lost Bowman, escaped after a trip overseas). Bowman can play keep-away quite well, and could escape at least one grab by chomping down on Sherlock’s hand. Eventually, though, the spry detective would manage to capture the fluttery sprite and stop all that wheeling about.

Then comes part 2: the battle of snark. Sherlock would go from smug over catching the little green critter to shocked as Bowman starts cussing at him. Bowman isn’t one to give up, no matter who he’s up against, and he certainly doesn’t hold back his opinions (of which there are many). Sherlock might still try to run some basic tests (he’s not about to hurt the little guy), but if he thinks Bowman will let him focus, he’s dead wrong.

I think this one would have to be set in the Brothers Found au, sometime after the events of Jacob in Wonderland.

Maybe it’s a dream, or maybe the trickster couldn’t resist coming back to poke at him, but it would start with Jacob finding himself at his extra-tiny size again, well after he was sure he’d never have to deal with that again. Between the terrifying flashbacks and the absurdity of trying to figure out what to do, it’d be a bit of a ride.

He’d wake up on his bed at home and his eyes would get super wide as he realized what happened. The mouse that he befriended during his misadventures would also be fretting for him as he tried to work out what to do. Can he call Sam and Dean? Can he even get to his phone, let alone open it to make a call?

Lucky his family would be out of the house to start with; he’d have some time to figure something out.

Anonymous: Subtle Overprotective Syndrome

A fisherman heads out on his rickety boat, determined to catch enough to sell at the last market before he has to pack up all the supplies and think about setting up for winter. The waves are choppy and his family insists he doesn’t go, but if he doesn’t make enough money to buy supplies they might not make it through the harsh coastal winter.

He’s skilled out on the water, and does manage to net quite a few fish, but he lingers out there too long. The waves get to be much taller than his little boat, and it’s getting harder and harder to control it, to aim it for the safer shore and not the harsh rocks.

Knowing there will be some I-told-you-so’s, he flashes a desperate signal to anyone that might be waiting at the shore: S O S.

And someone answers, but not exactly who he’d expect. There’s a giant living in the hills near the shore, and that’s who wades out into the choppy water like it’s little more than a diving pool. 

At first the fisherman doesn’t even see what’s happening amidst the high waves and clouded sky, until a rush of water beneath catches his attention.

Then his boat rises on what he thinks is a swell of a wave at first, until it just keeps going up. A hand big enough to cradle the whole fishing boat in its palm lifts him free of the battering waves and cups it close to a huge, hunched chest.

The giant almost never involves himself in the affairs of the small fishing village, but this time he carries the foolish little fisherman back to shore … and all the way up into the hills despite his calls to let him off at home.

It takes a night and a day to convince the giant that he’s not about to go back to the water.

Honestly, the first thing that comes to mind for this one is a borrower getting the hiccups at the Worst. Possible. Time.

This after bragging to another borrower that they’re one of the best out there at sneaking in and out of a huge room without anyone noticing, and getting all the best stuff. Commence the hiccups and the mad dash for cover while the human tries to figure out what that intermittent, tiny squeaking noise is. Meanwhile their buddy is back in the walls going back and forth between worrying they’ll be seen and finding this the funniest thing they’ve seen in ages.

I could see this happening to Chase Lisong and his sister Minnie, if they were borrowers. It shouldn’t take too many guesses to figure out which one is the dork with the hiccups.

This is so cute and it immediately makes me think of the name for baby wood sprites, so of course the story would involve them somehow.

The story would start with Jacob making another visit to the Wellwood forest. He’d bring with him a book he found at the library while he was browsing around: Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, in which the tiny folk call people like him Beans. If nothing else, he’d be thinking it’s an amusing thing to show Bowman and the other sprites his age, who never run out of fascination for the things he brings to the woods.

Before getting close to the village, though, Jacob would hear a tiny little voice. Two tiny nestlings, wandering too far past the stream, got lost with the village out of sight and with no patrolsprites nearby to notice.

Not every sprite in Wellwood is 100% on board with Jacob and how enormous he is, and he’s extra big to these poor lost nestlings. They can’t even fly up to bop him like that Bowman Leafwing does all the time. Jacob wouldn’t want to frighten them even more, but there’s no way he’s going to leave them on their own, even to go and find someone to come carry them; the village isn’t far for him, but it’s enough of a trip that something could befall them before he got back.

Luckily, he has a whole book with him, with fascinating stories of tiny people a lot like the sprites that live near the giant human beans. With no idea what else to do and them huddling away from his hands, Jacob would read to the poor sprouts until someone on patrol heard him and came to investigate to get the kiddos home.
