Characters: GySgt Erin Mathias
Rating: PG
Spoilers: 3x03, "Exodus I"
Prompt: Guns

Gunny. That's her rank, and it's what she is. Ever since childhood, Gunnery Sergeant Erin Mathias has loved to shoot.

When she was small, she and her sister played Colonials and Centurions with toy rifles (Kelly was always the Cylon, because Erin said so). When they were older, they'd go to the quarry and hunt daggits. And when Erin enlisted in the Colonial Marines, at 17, she was already the best shot in her squad.

Kelly must've died on Caprica, like everyone else.

But Gunny's alive, and today she bagged a real Centurion, on a world called New Caprica, for her sister.

Title: Games
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Centurions
Rating: G
Spoilers: 3x01, "Occupation"
Prompt: Guns

Late at night, when they are supposed to be standing guard over the humans, sometimes the Centurions play.

They have very little with which to play -- and they have to be very quiet because it's a secret, and they are not quiet if they move much! -- so each of them takes a round out of its gun-arm and spins it in its other hand, carefully, like a top. Whoever spins it the prettiest wins... but they are all so very pretty no one can choose, so everybody wins! It's a nice game.

Daylight gun games are not so nice.

The centurions play games? :D Heh. Cool. Both of these are... cute, actually. In a dark way.

Love them both.

Although the second brings to mind "They never let poor Boomer play in any Centurion games!" =)

Aw, these were both so bittersweet and strangely adorable. I love these little flashes of insight and personality into otherwise forgotten-about characters. Great use of the prompt in both!

Oh dear, poor Erin.

I luuuurrve the idea of the Centurions secretly playing games when the skinjobs and the humans can't see them.

Most brilliant thing ever. I really liked both of these.
