Pairing/characters: Elena/Elijah
Rating: PG
Summary: The dagger comes out easier than she'd have assumed to, like it's the Excalibur to her Arthur and she was meant to free it all along.

Words: 1,016
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Unbeta'ed prompt fic. I really was only going to write drabbles, but when the_milky_way prompted me with "any pairing with Dan, sunshine mornings in an unfamiliar room" it just screamed 'five times' at me. Hence, no drabble.

Five times Dan woke up in a bed that wasn't his own...Collapse )

Title: The Ghost at the Back of Your Closet
Fandom: The Social Network
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Rating: PG-13
Summary: The movie makes it all – the ups and downs of Mark's friendship with Eduardo – sound like a tragic love story with an unhappy ending, which it wasn't. It wasn't a love story. Was it?
Words: 4,015
Disclaimer: Not about the real people, but their fictionalized alter egos from the movie. Also, no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Originally written for treelines at yuletide. Thanks to the lovely glitterburn for the beta! The title comes from The Mountain Goat's "Wolves", which incidentally also comes with lines like there'll always be a few things, maybe several things / that you're going to find really difficult to forgive that could be written for Mark and Eduardo.

In the years following the settlement, Mark doesn't hear from Eduardo...Collapse )
 
 
 
Title: everything I was and everything that I've become
Fandom: Gossip Girl

Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.

Rating: PG
Summary: Some things are easier in death than they ever were in life.
Words: 4,664
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: I'm somewhat surprised that I managed to keep the 'I want to write Anne/Cromwell ghost!fic' inspiration that struck me at the end of my season two rewatch alive for all those months of thesis writing when I didn't have time to touch fanfiction at all. But apparently, the story really wanted to get written because four months later, it's actually done. Thanks to glitterburn for the beta!

The worst thing is the loneliness...Collapse )
 
 
Title: Safety Off
Fandom: James Bond: Casino Royale
Pairing/Characters: Bond/Villiers
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Nothing is more distracting than firing a gun; without the added rush of adrenaline of a fight, without an actual person in front of the barrel, it's almost soothing.
Words: 1,277
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Posted as an extra Yuletide treat for toscas_kiss for Yuletide madness 2009 and originally posted here. I actually started this years ago, but it was rotting away untouched in my ever-growing 'works in progress' folder ever since. Then I saw the prompt on December 24 and remembered that I had a half-finished story lying around somewhere that fit it pretty much exactly and thought, 'Hey, it's Christmas. Besides, if I don't finish it now, I probably never will.' Many, many thanks to mk_tortie for the last-minute Christmas Eve beta!

Every bullet hits the target dead centre...Collapse )

Words: 585
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.

01 July 2009 @ 12:09 pm
Title: Entangled
Fandom: Robin Hood
Pairing: Guy/Robin, (Guy/Marian, Guy/Robin/Marian)
Rating: R

Words: 2,586
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Spoilers for all of series three, up to and including the finale!

Words: 2,207
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Thanks to the lovely autiotalo for the beta!

When all is said and done and all they're waiting for is the executioner, Cromwell goes to see the Queen in the Tower...Collapse )
 
 
 
Title: REWIND, START AGAIN
Fandom: Robin Hood
Pairing: Guy, Robin/Isabella (hints of Guy/Robin/Isabella if you look at it from upside down with sunglasses on and squint)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Guy realizes that everyone chooses their own path, and that loving someone sometimes means you have to let them go. (Set after 3x06 "Do You Love Me", departs from canon after that.)
Words: 4,340
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: After "Let the Games Commence" aired, I wanted to write a story about Isabella and Robin struggling through and getting their happy ending. Then Guy demanded that the story should be more about him. Then "Too Hot to Handle" jossed it all and "The King is Dead..." jossed it even more, and I suspect the latest episode (which I haven't even seen yet!) only added to it. So, basically, this couldn't be further from the story I set out to write; clearly, I have no influence at all in what my fingers are typing.
Thanks to the wonderful autiotalo for stepping in to beta this on short notice!

''The Sheriff is dead, long live the Sheriff', Guy thinks grimly...Collapse )
 
 
Title: ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LOOKING GLASS
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Vegas!Sheppard, Vegas!Todd
Rating: PG
Summary: "Destiny beckoned, and here you are."
Words: 598
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Written for the 'SGA, Vegas!John/Vegas!Todd, hunger' prompt at comment_fic and originally posted here.

Later, after they got him out of the desert...Collapse )
 
 
Title: 'JERK' IS JUST ANOTHER FOUR-LETTER WORD
Fandom: Trust Me
Pairing: Mason/Simon
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Fact is: Mason doesn't like Cochran. He doesn't like anything about him: the way he sprawls in Tony's chair like he owns the world, the way his condescending hand lingers on Mason's shoulder in faux-camaraderie while he dismisses Mason's ideas, the accent that grates on Mason's nerves like the sound of chalk on a blackboard.
Words: 4,521
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Thanks to autiotalo for the super-fast and thorough beta!

Mason leans back in his chair and lets Cochran's voice wash over him...Collapse )

In the quiet nights, when she's alone in a too large apartment...Collapse )
 
 

Title: PAS DE DEUX
Fandom: Spooks/The Ghost Squad
Pairing: Lucas North/Pete Maitland
Rating: R for violence
Summary: Two can play that game.
Words: 3,073
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: The first thing I thought after discovering Ghost Squad a few weeks ago was, 'I want a crossover with this and Spooks!' Of course, what I meant was that I wanted to read that crossover, not write it. But, alas, since no one else seemed inclined... Thanks to the lovely cordeliadelayne for helping me take care of the typos and Americanisms that slipped in!

They've been over this seven times already within the last couple of hours without getting anywhere...Collapse )
 
 
 

Title: IN THE CALM AFTER THE STORM
Fandom: Whitechapel
Pairing: Chandler/Kent
Rating: PG
Summary: If there's anything Chandler has learned in those last few weeks, it's that sometimes it pays off to take a leap. (Missing scene from the end of Episode 3.)
Words: 2,274
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Thanks to the lovely glitterburn for the lightning-fast beta job and all the Britpicking!

When all the reports are written, when the doctors at the hospital have assured them that Miles will be fine...Collapse )
 
 
24 February 2009 @ 04:37 pm

Title: ENDGAME
Fandom: Pawns and Symbols
Pairing: Jean/Tirax
Rating: R
Summary: According to the experts, a Knight is usually at a disadvantage in a Knight and Pawn endgame. But then, Jean never had the patience to be a very good Chess player.
Words: 2,312
Disclaimer: The characters belong to Majliess Larson. No profit was made with this and no copyright infringement intended, I'm just borrowing them for a while.
Author's Notes: Thanks to the wonderful tigertrapped for taking the time to beta this!
I've had this plot (or non-plot, as it is) stuck in my head for years, but it turned out to work better as a fantasy than it does when it's actually written. I'm still too fond of the premise to let it go but, writing it down, I was suddenly all too aware of the characterization issues it brings along. I tried my best to iron them out, but I'm not sure I entirely succeed.

Jean took a deep breath and moved her hand over the panel next to the door to activate the chime...Collapse )
 
 
Title: MOONLIGHT SERENADE
Fandom: Gossip Girl
Pairing: Chuck/Jenny
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Another night, another rooftop. Same setting, third take. Maybe it's time to rewrite the ending.
Words: 900
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: Written for the Porn Battle VII (The Seven Deadly Sins). Prompt: "rooftop".

'We've got to stop meeting like this.'Collapse )
 
 
Title: THE LIES OF HONEST MEN
Fandom: Lord of War
Pairing: Yuri Orlov/Jack Valentine
Rating: R
Summary: He keeps telling himself that he doesn't want this.
Words: 434
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: Written for the Porn Battle VII (The Seven Deadly Sins). Prompt: "handcuffs".

The cuffs dig into his wrists until his fingers are numb and his palms are tingling with a thousand needles and pins...Collapse )
 
 
Title: LOSING THE BATTLE, WINNING THE WAR
Fandom: First Monday
Pairing: Julian/Jerry
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Jerry realizes that maybe he's not as imaginative as he believed he was.
Words: 573
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: Written for the Porn Battle VII (The Seven Deadly Sins) for the prompt "unexpected".

Jerry's been thinking about Julian sometimes...Collapse )
 
 
 

Title: A CHANGE OF SEASONS
Fandom: Robin Hood (BBC)
Pairing: Robin/Much, Robin/Guy
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A year in Sherwood Forest. Everything is the same as always. Everything looks and smells and sounds just as it did when they left, just like it did last year and the year before, and something is profoundly wrong with that. (Spoilers for the series two finale.)
Words: 6,118
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Written for magic_at_mungos in the Yuletide exchange 2008 and originally posted here. Thanks to my lovely beta readers glitterburn and melandraanne for all their help with this!

Title: WHAT DREAMS MAY COME
Fandom: Robin Hood (BBC)
Pairing: Guy/Marian
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Hood's sword and the flaming fires of hell would be kinder than this, Guy thinks. (Coda to 2x13 We Are Robin Hood.)
Words: 958
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: So, I was just thinking about how, lately, for me, fanfiction was all about fixing things and getting a (semi-)happy ending where canon fails to deliver. Then I sat down and wrote this. Maybe some things cannot be fixed.
Thanks to the wonderful nyakototo for the beta!

'I love you,' she says, and her kiss tastes of apples and copper and desert sand...Collapse )
 
 

Title: TRIAL AND ERROR
Fandom: Pawns and Symbols
Pairing: Jean
Rating: PG
Summary: From the moment she steps on Federation soil, it feels wrong: familiar but distorted and disconcerting, like the figures on an abstract Haliian painting. It's as if she's back where she started only to find that the place had changed.
Words: 663
Disclaimer: The characters belong to Majliess Larson. No profit was made with this and no copyright infringement intended, I'm just borrowing them for a while.
Author's Note: For jheen.

Words: 1.053
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: For glitterburn who wanted Lucas and thoughts on his tattoos, though this took a slightly different turn and ran away with it halfway through.

In Russia, Lucas had come from regarding the tattoos as a necessity, to considering them – each single one of them – a celebration of survival...Collapse )
Tags:
 
 

Title: DELAYING THE INEVITABLE
Fandom: House, M.D.
Pairing: House/Chase

Summary: "I can't believe you chose this over diagnostics," House tells him.
Words: 809
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: For tigertrapped, who asked for a season five House/Chase moment.

Occasionally, when House doesn't have a case, when Wilson is too busy to indulge him and the new fellows are more successfully than usually at hiding from their boss, House waits for Chase in the locker room outside the O.R...Collapse )

07 November 2008 @ 12:05 pm

Title: OUT OF BREATH
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Sheppard/Todd
Rating: NC-17
Summary: The fall-out after the Attero device. The stab of arousal John feels when the fingers on the side of his neck close a little further blindsides him, hitting him low in the pit of his stomach like a punch that briefly leaves him breathless.
Words: 577
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: For megaranight, whose prompt was "John/Todd first kiss". It turned out to be a little *coughs* more than a kiss, but I hope you don't mind...

For a scientist, Todd is a pretty damn good fighter...Collapse )
 
 
07 November 2008 @ 12:03 pm

Title: LAB TIME
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Todd/Keller
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "I'm not scared," she says, defiantly.
Words: 310
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: For kiku65, who agreed that Todd/Keller needed to be written. This one's quite silly, really. One day, I will write serious, longer, plotty fic. But not today.

He accidentally brushes against the doctor when he's passing her to look at the data on the screen and feels her shiver...Collapse )
 
 

Title: MOMENTS IN TIME (repost)
Fandom: The Thin Red Line
Pairing: Witt/Welsh
Rating: PG-13
Summary: When it comes down to it, all that counts are a handful moments...
Disclaimer: Characters belong to Terrence Mallick and James Jones. No copyright infringement intended.
Author's Notes: Since I switched from personal fanfic website to only archiving my writings on LiveJournal, some of my older fanfiction isn't online anymore. In most cases, I'd say good riddance, so there's not going to be a massive bunch of old fic reposts. I felt that this one, though, was worth salvaging. It was originally written June 2003; I just made some minor changes and additions now.

Out here in the wilderness, time has its own, distinct way of passing...Collapse )
 
 

Title: GRAVITY (ALL THE ROADS HAVE LEAD US HERE)
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Sheppard/Todd
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Some things you can't walk away from, no matter how hard you try.
Words: 3,556
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: I started (and almost finished) writing this story before the season started. It was actually intended to be a post-5x10 fix-it fic, based on some vague plot spoilers for the mid-season two-partner. Fascinatingly, it ended up fitting quite nicely with some things from last week's episode, so I thought I might just post it now instead of waiting to see whether it might be jossed in two weeks or not. Thanks to enigel for the super-fast beta!

It ends the way John knew it would end...Collapse )
 
 

Title: FALLING TOGETHER, FALLING APART

Rating: PG
Summary: It'll be alright to fall apart later, in the privacy of her own quarters where there's no one around to disapprove.
Words: 1,119
Disclaimer: The characters belong to Majliess Larson. No profit was made with this and no copyright infringement intended, I'm just borrowing them for a while.

The away team return from the mission with bruises and cuts marring their skin and their faces set in hard, angry lines, carrying their dead like a burden of honor...Collapse )

Rating: NC-17
Summary: It's always been about Bella.
Words: 576

If you ask either of them, they will tell you that it's always been all about Bella...Collapse )

Title: MEMENTO MORI
Fandom: Robin Hood
Pairing: Robin, Guy
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Once, at Marian's grave, he made the vow to avenge her and spill Gisborne's blood with the very blade that killed her.
Words: 1,007
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.

Robin keeps the sword, for sentimental reasons at first and later, he tells himself, because it would be a waste to throw such a fine blade away...Collapse )
 
 

Title: THE PLACE WHERE WE FALL
Fandom: Twilight
Pairing: Edward/Bella/Jacob
Rating: R
Summary: Post-"Eclipse" future fic. He's outgrown the scale of 'normal' so long ago that one step further away from what's right and natural seems to be no big deal.
Words: 3,697
Disclaimer: The characters belong to Stephanie Meyer. No profit was made with this and no copyright infringement intended, I'm just borrowing them for a while.
Author's Note: Thanks to apesy for the super-quick beta!

Disclaimer: The characters belong to Russell T. Davies and the BBC. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: Spoilers for Doctor Who's "The Last of the Time Lords" as well as "Adrift" and "Exit Wounds". (Well, the whole second season of Torchwood, really, but mostly these.) Thanks to the lovely lunasky for the beta!

In the end, their first kiss technically doesn't even happen...Collapse )

Title: LIFE'S ILLUSIONS
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Ava, Ava/Sheppard
Rating: PG-13

Words: 4,525
Disclaimer: The characters belong to people with more power and money than me. I'm only borrowing them for a while; no copyright infringement intended.
Author's Note: I swear, I'm generally very much a McShep person. I don't know why I keep coming up with those weird pairing ideas every time I write in this fandom. (Well, probably because there's already so much awesome McShep fic out there that I don't feel like I have anything to add.) Thanks to the wonderful iscaris, who's been absolutely amazing and offered her help when I was going crazy because I couldn't track down a beta reader within the fandom.

Ava Dixon died on December 12, 2005, losing control of her car on her way home from work on a rainy Monday night...Collapse )
