Fireflies - A Oneshot Songfic

Aug 6, 2009 in , ,

I wanted to write a oneshot to get my mind off another story, and someone gave me the idea to do a songfic based on the song Fireflies by Owl City, so I did it.

Before you say anything, sorry about the ending. It's really rough and kinda... I don't know, the flow just isn't there for me. I feel like there should be a really fat paragraph there, but I can't bring myself to get a Thesaurus or whatever. But I just did it for the fun of it, and didn't really edit it, so, yeah. Sorry about that.

It's just plain really rough to me... Haha if I get around to editing it, you won't even know it's the same story.

But, yeah. Whether you love it, hate it, or just plain don't read it, here it is.


Aiden pressed the play button on the little radio the sat on the grass, and one of his favorite songs filled the air. He closed his eyes, and his body swayed to the melody.

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
‘Cuz they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You think me rude, but I would just stand and stare

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
‘Cuz everything is never as it seems

“Hey babe, you awake?” called Xena, his girlfriend.

“Huh? Oh, sorry. I just really like this song…” he replied, slowly opening his eyes, with a dreamy expression on his face.

“Yeah, I know you love it. That’s why I got you something.”

He opened his eyes wider, and Xena looked into his gorgeous eyes. They sparkled under the moonlight, and he looked just breath-taking.

She brought out a clear, glass jar, and held it out for him to see. He gasped when he saw the two glowing fireflies.

“Xen… where’d you find them?” he whispered in the dark. His eyes were focused on the two creatures that exuded light out of their bodies.

“Let’s just say I know a place,” she replied coyly, winking at him.

Cuz I saved a few and I keep 'em in a jar

The song played softly in the background, and he smiled at the one in front of him. The wind blew in her hair, and it whipped across her face. He reached out, and hung her coal black locks behind her ear.

“What do you say we free them?” he asked her silently taking a step closer to her.

She nodded, and he took the jar from her.

“Can I help you?” she asked, looking up at him.

He placed her hand over his, and began to twist the jar open.

The little critters flew around frantically, anticipating the cold night air.

“Go fly,” he said, with the final twist.

Two little fireflies flew out excitedly, and whirled into the sky. They flew several rounds around them, and intertwined their flight pattern as they flew.

Aiden turned his gaze from the fireflies, to Xena.

She looked into those beautiful eyes, the color exquisite. He leaned in closer to her, and the music continued to play on.

‘Cuz I get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they try to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sockhop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread

Her eyelids lowered slightly, and he came closer. She felt his breath gently blowing on her face, warm and light.

Their lips met, and the sparks flew between them. His soft lips separated from hers, and they were joined again.

Fireflies flew about and enclosed them in their moment.
