Challenge #121 -- Fortune: Some people have it, some people seek it, some claim to predict it, and some say that it favors the brave. Write a ficlette inspired by the word "fortune."

Fortune does sometimes favor the brave, but it all depends on what your definitions of fortune and favoritism are.

Fortune favored the Halliwells by giving them powers... but then took their men away from them in one way or another.

Fortune favored us by making us the Charmed Ones, but then took away our big sister, Prue when the Source of all Evil targeted us for death.

The entire thing about fortune is that it seems that it has to keep a balance. You get fortune and you lose it.

I can see visions of the future, but does that mean I predict people's fortunes? Well, not anymore. I once worked as a fortune teller shortly after we got our powers. I was broke and Prue's birthday was coming up, so when I saw the ad for the hotel looking for a fortune teller for their lounge, I got the job. Oh, I told someone's fortune alright... and then I had to resort to drastic measures to keep him safe because he didn't believe what I had seen.

Fortune can favor the brave or the scared. Some of the people that have the most money are ones that are also the biggest cowards that may have ever been seen.

Fortune is fickle.

Fortune gave me Cole, then took Cole... and now he's back again.

I've learned not to question fortune. Doing that causes a backfire on you and tears your life and your heart apart.
