Series Fic: Ying Yang, BillxTom, G  
Title: Ying Yang
Author: [livejournal.com profile] paraboobizarre
Pairing(s): BillxTom
Rating: G
Disclaimer: not mine, never happened.
Warnings: none
Summary: Bill chuckled quietly, weighing the heavy chain in his hand when he suddenly stilled, a particular pendant catching his eye...a tiny silver plate with the Ying and Yang symbol on it...
Author's notes: the story that came in second in the poll on Charmed.
After the rather underwhelming feedback on my beloved Cherry I hope this is more to people's tastes.



It was a flat disc, plain silver with black and white enamel on one side. Next to him Tom stirred lightly in his sleep, mumbling something that Bill couldn't make out before he turned on his side, the teddy bear still clutched firmly against his chest. Teddy's dull eyes seemed to wink at Bill over the hem of the blanket.

That Ying Yang symbol was something quite special. it represented him and Tom, two halves that completed each other, were meant to be together, formed a whole; it was not like one could be without the other.


♥ ♥ ♥



"Remember that movie we watched, that documentary thing?"

"About the twins and the triplets?" Bill yawned massively and slouched further in his pillows.

Bill could remember the clips; computer animations of fetuses in a womb, the way they would kick at each other, knee one another in the head.

"Like they told that story about the twins who used to press their cheeks together and still did that even when they were kids..." Tom mumbled drowsily, marching his fingers in an intricate pattern over Bill's stomach and chest.

"So?" Bill asked, smoothing away the goosebumps the touches elicited by snuggling deeper into the warm blankets.

"Like...I was thinking if we had anything like that?" Tom said, trying to sound casual when really he wasn't.

"Like the cheek thing?"

"Mhmmmm?" Tom rumbled, laying his head on Bill's shoulder, that, albeit being rather bony, was still superior to his own pillow. So much nicer smelling for one thing.

"They said that the dominant fetus stays the dominant one in real life as well..." Tom continued, "so that means that you're the bossy twin...bossy fetus!" Tom pinched his side lightly.

"But you're the older brother!" Bill squeaked, batting Tom's hand away.

"I probably just wanted to get away from my bossy roommate ASAP...no such luck though," Tom added, seemingly as an afterthought. A light smile splashed across his features and Bill felt his brother inch just a little bit closer.

"Mum said we used to kick her all the time in the last two months." Bill muttered, somewhat distractedly; he used to hate the stories his mum would tell about the time when they still weren't born yet. Somehow it seemed embarrassing; embarrassing and maudlin at the same time.

"You kicked her. I was the calm twin; still am, matter of fact." Tom joked, brushing some dreads past his shoulders. The strands tickled against Bill's shoulder and he could feel yet another bout of goosebumps coming on.

He looked up at the ceiling, studying the intricate stucco on the hotel bedroom's ceiling when suddenly a thought came to him.

"I think I know what we did then what we still do now."

"And what would that be?" Tom asked, his voice a mixture of curiosity and weariness.

"This here," Bill announced, draping his arm over Tom's shoulder, pulling his brother impossibly close, hearing Tom hum happily as they twined around each other till it was all just a tangle of identical limbs.

"Explains a lot of things actually," Bill whispered into the wilderness of dreads surrounding his face, cutting out all the light and leaving him in a place where all things smelled of Tom, sleep and home.

"Like what?" He could feel the words trickle down the side of his neck, slipping down his back.

"Like you were always stronger than me, so you probably just lay on me, crushing my umbilical cord and hogging all the oxygen. I'm a stick figure, even compared to you but that's probably just because you were crushing me for nine months on end." Bill thought he could feel Tom smile against his shoulder.
"Admittedly I am also a bit dumber than you – again, lack of oxygen...also, my ears have a funny shape, so I guess you just pulled or nibbled at them – sounds rather like familiar behavior, huh?"

Tom just made a noncommittal sound, hugging Bill closer.

"Most importantly though this feels like the best thing in the world – so I guess that's our thing..."

I like how Tom is the one cuddling up to Bill in this one. So cute. Love how they tease each other. I'll have to look for that documentary. I find twins to be fascinating. Hope to see more charm stories from you soon. What a great idea for a series.
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:55 pm (UTC)
You should really see if you can catch that documentary somewhere - it was totally fascinating!

There will be two more charm stories - the ones that were in the poll, the sea shell and the VHS cassette.

Why are these not getting more reviews? :( I look forward to these posts of yours so much, these little snippets are adorable and your characterization of the twins is worth waiting for :)

"Admittedly I am also a bit dumber than you – again, lack of oxygen...
HAHAH! <3

So cute! Are there any others you'll be posting from this charm bracelet collection?
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC)
Ask me why these don't get more reviews! People have generally become so lazy with the commenting it's sooooooo extremely frustrating! Since I put quite a lot of work into these and people just don't bother to take that 30 sec to write some simple comment.

There are still the two other charms that were in the poll - the sea shell and the VHS cassette :D

Thanks for the sweet comment *huggles*

Aww.. people are hogging all the lines I want to quote *pouts*

Bill whispered into the wilderness of dreads surrounding his face, cutting out all the light and leaving him in a place where all things smelled of Tom, sleep and home.. *sigh* Indescribably cute, such little sappy details make me soo happy, almost giddy ^-^ I'm a sucker for the fluff
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks for that cute comment <333 - well it's quite a short fic so naturally there are only so many lines you get to quote XD
[identity profile] sagittariusgirl.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 03:12 am (UTC)
lol @ Bill blaming everything thats *wrong* with him on Tom..(being dumber, skinner)

Tom choosing Bill's boney shoulder over his own pillow.

this was just too cute.
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:46 pm (UTC)
Of course it's all Tom's fault, didn't you know that haha and who wouldn't choose Bill's bony shoulders over a pillow?! I mean would, any time of the day ;)
[identity profile] ma-chelle.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 06:21 am (UTC)

I wonder what are their theories on twins... ;)

This was so cute and sweet! So much fun sibblings making fun of each other ^__^
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
I really wonder what their theories are or if the just take all that twin awesomeness for granted LOL
[identity profile] strssna.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 12:22 pm (UTC)
I melted, pure and simple. So sweet, the dialogue felt very realistic for the twins - and I have to agree with Bill's theory :)

I'm very happy you wrote this as wel, though it didn't win the poll. Two more to go :D
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 31st, 2009 05:39 pm (UTC)
I'm all for with Bill's theory as well (duh! I wrote it after all LOL)

It's only two more to go haha unless I feel so totally inspired another one creeps up on me, which is highly unlikely though since I already have a completely new one in the works... ;)
[identity profile] 6why-me9.livejournal.com on February 1st, 2009 03:14 pm (UTC)
This...is just awesome. I can totally imagine that being true...
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on February 1st, 2009 03:52 pm (UTC)

Glad you enjoyed the story *hugs*
[identity profile] billistmeinherz.livejournal.com on February 1st, 2009 03:39 pm (UTC)
Your such a good writer you kill me every time! :D

"so that means that you're the bossy twin...bossy fetus!" Tom pinched his side lightly.

[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on February 1st, 2009 03:53 pm (UTC)
Wow, thanks for that big compliment <333

We all know Bill is the bossy one - I do NOT want to know how badly he must have kicked his poor mum while she was pregnant with the boys XD
[identity profile] queendaeva.livejournal.com on February 1st, 2009 05:16 pm (UTC)

[identity profile] billababy.livejournal.com on February 9th, 2009 02:49 am (UTC)
So short, yet so full of adorable twin cuddles (twuddles?). I loooove the words you use to describe even the slight details - the imagery is divine!

"Like what?" He could feel the words trickle down the side of his neck, slipping down his back. Gave me a shiver! lol

Can't wait to read the others, and I hope you find a few more charms floating around in the idea bin... plz plz plz <3
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on February 9th, 2009 06:17 am (UTC)
