    Summary

    Two art majors, both well known but for different reasons. One was known for being an outgoing, social butterfly and the other...well...his loneliness, aggression and not much else.

    John MacTavish was popular for all the good reasons, he was most favoured for his inclusive and loving personality, taking everyone and everything under his wing.

    Simon Riley on the other hand was popular for all the wrong reasons. His explosive personality and constant fighting made him popular amongst other troubled young adults.

    So what happened when these two polar opposites crossed paths?

    Well, I guess you'll just have to find out.

     

    Or; Call of Duty University AU, introverted Simon crosses paths with extroverted Johnny

    Summary

    Alarm crosses the Scot’s features and it is at this moment that the masked man knows he’s in for a proper scolding; Soap has spotted the wound. A string of curses that can only be described as gibberish by Ghost escapes Soap and suddenly the Scot has his hand on Ghost’s forehead. More scottish gibberish ensues and Ghost can’t help but roll his eyes.

    “English, MacTavish” Ghost weakly gripes.

    “You’re burnin up ya dafty” Soap shoots back, an obvious scowl on his face. His arms are crossed, and as Ghost analyzes him, likely a bit more than he really should, he notices that the expression Soap wears isn’t necessarily anger, but worry. Ghost doesn’t really think much of it; it’s only natural for teammates to care about each other, right?

    Soap sighs exasperatedly at the state of his friend, his head hanging in defeat. “Simon, how many more rock bottoms are you going to hit before you start taking care of yourself?” The Scotsman asks, his tone serious.

    Ghost snorts in reply, refusing to acknowledge the fact that Soap used his given name. “Was thinkin of a number between 11 and 25.”

    Or

    Ghost is notoriously bad about taking care of himself and Soap has had enough

    Summary

    “Long time no see L.t,” Soap says, pushing up off the wall and taking a step toward Ghost, his eyes bright and excited. He reminds Ghost so much of a dog it’s crazy; Ghost swallows hard and resists the urge to cross his arms in defense. He feels the need to have a physical barrier between himself and Soap as if without one he might be tempted to reach out and touch him.

     

    After Las Almas, Ghost returns to base.

    Summary

    Despite his work, despite his family, despite everything, he liked to think he was a good father to Colette. Changed her nappies, fed her, clothed her, rocked her for hours upon hours upon hours while she fought sleep with everything she had. Countless nights she’d sit there and scream until she couldn’t anymore, just crying and hiccupping. Simon had cried once too.

    When she’d gotten older, he took her out on walks, or car rides, letting the rumble of the engine soothe her to sleep.

    He’d brushed her hair, kissed her forehead and boo-boos, told her how proud he was. Simon Riley had been a good father.

    Then Roba happened. Then Sparks and Washington had killed his entire family, and he’d felt terrible, terrible relief when he didn’t see Colette among the bodies, then fear, because if she wasn’t here, where was she?

    Bumming a smoke off a highschooler as it turns out. His eight year old wanting to pick up his filthy fucking habit had saved her.

    He remembers the numbness as she threw herself into his arms, hiccupping and sobbing.

    Simon Riley was a good father.

    But Simon Riley was dead.

    or;

    ghost has a daughter. it's a terrible thing.

    Summary

    “He was hungry. But not for food. This wasn’t a simple hunger either. It was more like a starving lion, scouring the African Savanna for any type of sustenance. Ghost just pushed the feelings of hunger deeper and deeper. Until he can feel nothing else but hollow. Like he should.

    Teeth and tongue ripping away at his skin until he’s nothing but bones.”

    Summary

    As the night goes along, his mind wanders back to the sergeant. At first, Ghost’s impression of him was that he would somehow get his ass killed, the easy smiles and the generous touches he gave contrasted the skill the man had with a sniper rifle and explosives. Coupled with his tendency to get injured and for Ghost, it was a miracle that the man hasn’t expired yet.

    Though a big factor of that could be how Ghost keeps watching his six, his eyes never leaving making sure the man didn’t die on his watch.

    Turns out Simon isn’t as deeply buried as he thought.

    OR

    Ghost and Soap meet in the mess hall one night and it all goes downhill from there.

    Summary

    Ghost is a war hardened soldier. An elite. He doesn't feel. All he knows is the mission. He will succeed no matter the consequences.

    Simon is the man behind the mask. He's allowed to feel, to be human, but only when the mask is off. Sometimes Simon spends an evening at the bar. He'll find a pretty gent or lady, release his stress, and be on his way. Next morning he'd put the mask back on, and forget any feelings he may have had.

    The line never blurred until John "Soap" MacTavish walked into the bar one fateful night.

    (AKA what if Simon and Soap met at the bar before the mission, but Soap doesn't know Simon is Ghost)

    Summary

    [Inspired by some art work I had seen]
    Simon is hurt after some training and who better to make sure he was okay than Soap?

    It's just some soft fluff along with some kisses. They open up slightly towards one another but mostly Simon. I just thought of the ending but the start was inspired by the artist and their work.
