Well, today was my first of two days off, and I was utterly bored out of my mind. So I did some majorly havey writing. Here is my first offering, a Gundam Wing video clip fic to Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open The Door." Yes, that sappy love song. Be afraid. WA HA HA HA!!!!! C&C welcome, as always.

(Let it be known that I'm not being terribly serious about this one. It's not all that good, and it was mainly an exercise for me to let all the sap out so I could get work done on the next thing I'm sending along. ^^;;)

LET MY LOVE OPEN THE DOOR
Pete Townshend

[Pan slowly over Heero. He is in a dorm room, sitting at the plain, unadorned metal desk. As always, he’s looking at the laptop. But…he’s not typing on it. He doesn’t seem to be seeing anything at all. Focus in on the laptop…it’s playing a looped video clip of Duo running after a little kid who has one of his shoes, chasing him through some sprinklers. In the clip, Duo stops and turns back, smiling broadly, like he’s looking at the camera, sending glittering droplets of water flying through the air.]

When people keep repeating
That you'll never fall in love

[Heero continues to watch the video. He suddenly starts, as if he heard a noise, and looks over his shoulder. Hastily, he hits a key on the laptop, and the video closes. Duo flings open the door of the room and comes bouncing in and tries to lean over Heero’s shoulder to see what’s on the laptop. Heero glares at him.]

When everybody keeps retreating
But you can't seem to get enough

[Duo won’t leave Heero alone, and Heero punches him. Duo retreats, a hurt expression on his face, and Heero watches him go.]

Let my love open the door

[The door shuts. Heero slowly turns his attention back to the laptop.]

Let my love open the door

[Now on Duo. Duo is leaning against the wall by the door, clutching his jaw and muttering obsceneties.]

Let my love open the door

[Finally, Duo sighs and pushes off the wall. He walks down the hall, shoulders hunched slightly. He’s slowly shaking his head, setting his braid swinging.]

To your heart

[Heero is watching the video clip again, a strange expression on his face. Focus in on his face…he seems to be caught between confusion, weeping, and smiling.]

When everything feels all over
Everybody seems unkind

[Now Heero is sitting in the middle of a demolished city block, on top of a piece of rubble, obviously broken off of the top of a nearby apartment building. He hugs his knees to his chest, looking cold, despite the fact that there are fires all around.]

I'll give you a four-leaf clover
Take all worry out of your mind

[He’s staring down at something at his feet…it’s a teddy bear. It looks almost as if it’s staring right back. One of its arms is ripped; there’s stuffing leaking out of it.]

Let my love open the door

[The view changes. Heero is still sitting with his knees clutched to his chest, but he’s now on a rock, in the midst of a field. The wind is rippling through the uncut grass.]

Let my love open the door

[Back in his mental/dream world, he is still staring at the ghost of the bear.]

Let my love open the door

[Heero suddenly breaks off the staring contest, and the surroundings change back to the field.]

To your heart, to your heart

[Heero looks up slowly…Duo is now standing next to him, smiling as always. He’s offering Heero his hand, and saying something, though it’s not possible to tell what it is he’s saying. He continues to smile encouragingly.]

I have the only key to your heart
I can stop you falling apart

[Heero’s eyes widen, and for just a moment, the mask of the Perfect Soldier slips away, and he reaches out to take Duo’s hand.]

Try today you'll find this way
Come on and give me a chance to say

[The two boys clasp hands for a moment, and Duo pulls Heero to his feet. He grins, winks, and slaps Heero on the back, hard…then he runs. Heeo stays still, regarding Duo’s rapidly retreating back in confusion]

Let my love open the door

[A room in one of the safe houses. Heero is once more sitting at the desk with the laptop. He’s looking through old news articles, and has stopped on one. You can’t read the words, but by it is the picture of the little girl that Heero once helped.]

It's all I'm living for

[Heero starts and looks back at the door. It bursts open, almost like Duo kicked it open. Duo strikes a pose, grinning as always.]

Release yourself from misery

[Heero doesn’t smile back, but Duo doesn’t let that stop him. He flings himself into the room and looks over Heero’s shoulder again.]

There's only one thing gonna set you free

[Heero clenches one hand into a fist, ready to hit Duo…but then he hesitates…and slowly relaxes.]

That's my love
That's my love

[Duo laughs and casually leans on Heero’s shoulder. He’s looking closely at the article on the screen. Slowly, he reaches out and hits a key, and the article closes.]

Let my love open the door

[Another day in the room. The door gets flung open…and Duo is brandishing a pair of tickets to a concert.]

Let my love open the door

[Another day, and Duo slinks in rather guiltily, a can of spray paint in one hand. He’s smiling wickedly.]

Let my love open the door

[Heero is now watching the door expectantly. It doesn’t open.]

Let my love open the door

[Slowly, Heero stands and goes over to the door. He opens it up, and looks out into the hallway…and Duo tackles him, sending the both of them sliding back into the room, across the floor, with Duo firmly seated on top of Heero. Duo flashes the victory sign.]

When tragedy befalls you
don't let it drag you down

[Back in the field. Once again, Duo offers Heero a hand. He helps the Japanese boy stand up, then tags him and run off. Heero stands, unsure of what to do, until Duo yells for him…then a small smile creeps onto his lips, and he runs after Duo.]

Love can cure your problems
You're so lucky I'm around

[Heero catches Duo and tackles him, sending them down into the grass of the field in a tangled heap of arms and legs. Duo has somehow managed to get the better of Heero again, probably because Heero isn’t being serious about it…he says something, then leans down and kisses Heero. Heero’s eyes widen.]

Let my love open the door

[Heero is once again back in his mental/dream world, staring at the bear.]

Let my love open the door

[A shadow falls over the bear, and Heero looks up.]

Let my love open the door

[Duo is standing there, one hand out toward Heero.]

To your heart

[Heero slowly reaches out and takes Duo’s hand.]
