flyakate: Callum Keith Rennie and Paul Gross from DueSouth (kiss kiss bang bang RayK/Fraser)
Title: A Land So Wild and Savage (Love Ballad Remix)   [A03]
Fandom: Due South, with a hint of Dresden Files (see notes)
Rating: gen, though I suppose pre-slash if you squint
Pairing: Fraser/Winter? Fraser/Victoria, could be read as pre-Fraser/Kowalski
Summary: Many years later, Ray would meet the Winter Lady and tell how he fell in love with Winter. This is the story of how Ben Fraser loved her first.
Warnings (highlight to read): death of parent, grief, estrangement from parent, undetailed death due to exposure
Notes: Written as a remix of One Warm Line for Remix 12: the Dirty Dozen. That story is a crossover between Due South and The Dresden Files, where here little knowledge of the other show is necessary. However, by reading them both together (the original, then the remix) I think they create something nice.

So, a million years ago, I was thoroughly obsessed with the tv show Without a Trace. I was looking through my show tag (oh, the nostalgia of looking back at what and how I wrote in my livejournal back in the day) and was struck again with how much I enjoyed the two of them. Of course, the show itself was mostly concerned either solving the case of the day or the Jack Angst show (periodically with the Jack and Sam show, or the Martin and Sam show...) but what I always appreciate about fandom is that we can take and improve upon it, giving them more background and plot and sex :)

Back in the day, I had claimed Danny/Martin for crossovers 100 (remember when those kind of comms were all the rage? Oh, fanfic100, all the feels) and had written out several different scenarios where the pair could pop up. I still hold out high hopes for my CSI and Without a Trace backstory crossover... but regardless. I knew this one could work, and scribbled out part of it sitting in a New York city coffee shop. 9 years later, I am posting it outside a Palo Alto coffee shop. I like the parallel.

Title: Second Steps
Fandom: Without a Trace, Rent the musical
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Danny/Martin, Mark/Roger
Summary: Post-The Road Home. Sometimes second steps are even harder. But there are things that make them easier.
Warnings (highlight to read): drug use, relapse/withdrawal recovery, mention of harm to children (non-graphic)
Notes: So I wrote a good chunk of this back in (checks) 2006. Without a Trace was still a show, still a fandom, and I always meant to finish the story. Cut to 9 years later; I was digging around in my unfinished fics and was hit with nostalgia of Danny and Martin, their friendship and the relationship that so many of us had shipped. So I had to finish this and share it.

Title: Nightcap (A03)
Summary: Moran and Moriarty have a hard time sleeping. Moran wonders why that might be.
Fandom: A Study in Emerald
Rating: gen
Characters: Sebastian Moran, James Moriarty
Notes: Written for Yuletide Madness for [personal profile] gyzym . It never really fleshed out the way I'd hoped (and the deadline didn't help), but I enjoyed sketching out the clearly doubtful Moran from the original story.

As you perhaps remember, last Christmastime I was super psyched to write a piece to world build A Study in Emerald by Neil Gaiman. If you still haven't read it, go here.

Nothing says Christmas like messing around with ACD canon.

Title: The Case of the Curious Menagerie (A03)

Summary: Later that afternoon, the young woman who had written appeared at our door. That she had found us at all spoke to not only her skill at seeking out less than legal avenues of help, but also of the severity of her problem. Once she was seated, I could see the desperation and fear that had driven her to seek us out wash over her face, making her voice tremble and hands quiver.
Fandom: A Study in Emerald
Rating: R
Warnings (highlight to read): Vague and specific references to Lovecraftian insanity. Death of animal-like creatures. Vague reference to assult/PTSD. Tentacles and bodily harm.
Notes: Written for Yuletide for  Satchelfoot. A twisted reimagining of "The Adventure of the Speckled Band".

Title: Night Terrors (AO3)
Summary: Monroe, someone died," Nick reminded him with a grimace. "I don't think this counts as a social call."  "Oh right, my bad," Monroe said. "We really need to go out for a beer sometime. It's sad that this is my social life."
Fandom: Grimm
Charaters: Nick Burkhardt, Hank Griffin, Monroe
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Written for Yuletide 2014 as a gift for Gryph, who wanted our three guys hanging out and hunting things. So here we are!

Title: Restoration (Cornish Dance Mix) [A03]
Summary: The Grey House (which was still called only that by the older residents, no matter that it now had a proper house number and postal code just like the rest of the village) had ceased to be grey some years back; its boards weathered white by the wind and the salty air. Will wondered if he should paint it, but the expense and hassle seemed a bit much for accuracy in a title, and Will had learned long ago that old names can still be true, despite appearances. More true, even.
Fandom: The Dark is Rising (future fic)
Rating: G
Notes: So, funny story: I saw this go by as a pinch-hit in Remix and was thoroughly convinced that I had gotten the reply fast enough. I was, in fact, SO SURE that I didn't realize until deadline that I didn't get to write this. So I waited and posted it as an amusing gift, because I'm a goof. So what follows is a remix of the drabble 
Orientation, or really a further expanding on the reason Will is at the Grey House.

Title: Tesla Gibson 13 (A03)
Summary: Steve was three steps into the kitchen, debating hot chocolate versus raiding the fridge, when he realized that he wasn't the only one up, there were voices coming from down the hall in the living room.
Fandom: Avengers
Rating: G
Warnings: (highlight to read) implied alcohol abuse/alcoholism, mentions of verbal abuse from family members  
Notes: I was thinking about there are the families you are born into and the families you choose. Then I wondered how Tony and Steve might feel about those ideas.

Title: the past is prologue 
Summary: Ginny Hempstock had said it was only the three of them. But, before, there had been more. Or, a story of how Ginny had brothers.
Fandom: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Rating: G
Notes: Written for Yuletide 2013 as a gift for [personal profile] shrift , who wanted something from Ginny's perspective about why the men leave. And here we are!

Title: Secondhand Hope (A03)
What (might) happen Captain Steve Rogers, Chief Science Officer Dr. Bruce Banner and Chief Engineer Tony Stark are an away team.
a fusion of Star Trek reboot and Avengers. Set post- Star Trek: Into Darkness, so mild spoilers for that.
Written for [personal profile] musesfool  on her birthday. I was totally captivated by the USS Avenger casting pic on Tumblr, and so wrote this. It could definitely be something more, you never know.

Title: The Duty Ours (A03)
Summary: Days like this, Danny's not sure how it'll go.
Fandom: Hawaii Five-O
Pairing: Steve/Danny
Rating: PG-13, possible mild trigger WARNING: vauge mention of PTSD-tendencies, anxiety
Notes: As today is Memorial Day, I was thinking about all the amazing servicemen and women who serve our country, and this story materialized. The timeline of this is intentionally vague, as I haven't watched episodes lately at all, but I feel that between the length of time the boys have known each other and the amount of holidays to commemoriate (Memorial Day and Veterans Day at the very least) I feel that this situation would happen frequently for Steve and Danny. Oh, boys. Title is from a quote by Wallace Bruce - "who kept the faith and fought the fight; their glory theirs, the duty ours."

Title: Teachers Do It in Red Pen
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Summary: "This must be Thursday. I never could get the hang of Thursdays." - Douglas Adams
Rating: PG for mild swearing
Notes:Just when I thought I'd never write in this 'verse (or fandom again), I finally was able to smooth this one out. Multitudes of thanks to [personal profile] winkingstar , who looked at it eons ago and gave me the excellent edit of "this sounds like it's two stories at once" and thus the epic renovation began.

Teachers Do It in Red Pen )
flyakate: shadowy sky and a figure (heaven't philosphy)
 Somehow, I never posted my Yuletide offering for this year (I was a pinch hit writer because I didn't get my act together in time to go through the regular draw, which is excellent because I probably never would have gotten to write this story and it's made my reading/writing life so interesting, not to mention gave me a great excuse to read Lovecraft over Christmas).

If you've never read A Study in Emerald, it is an amazingly spine-tingling and excellent short story by Neil Gaiman that answers the question: what would happen if the world of Lovecraft and the world of Sherlock Holmes... were one and the same? He has a pdf of the story for free on his website, so first go read
that. I'll wait.

I love this story down to its creepy crawly bones. Hope you enjoy it!

Title: The Case of the Limping Doctor (
Summary: There once was a man named John who was fairly intelligent and respectable and had an honest face. This is (not quite) his story.
Fandom: A Study in Emerald
Rating: R
Warnings (highlight to read): psychological torture and trauma, physical torture, vague and specific references to Lovecraftian insanity. Graphic depictions of violence and self-harm.
Notes: Written for Yuletide 2013 for [personal profile] shadowkeeper to explore how Watson and Holmes meet in this universe.

Title: Stephen's List (also on AO3)
Summary: Sometimes Stephen needs a reminder of things he really shouldn't do. Here are 20 of them. Set pre-movie.
Fandom: The Brothers Bloom
Characters: references of Stephen, Bloom and Bang Bang
Rating: gen
Notes: I started this during Yuletide, and finally finished it this evening. I posted it to NYR, because there should be more amusing thoughts about Stephen's shenanigans. In another life with more time, i would love to write the snippets or stories that go with each of these reasons. Who knows, maybe I will.

Title: In the Land of Fire and Dreams
Summary: The more real things get, the more like myths they become. Czernobog through the years, pre-novel.
Fandom: American Gods
Character: Czernobog
Rating: PG-13 for some vaguely mentioned violence, discussion of slaughterhouses and practices therin
Notes: Quote in the summary comes from Rainer W Fassbinder, while the title is taken from American Gods itself. Written for
julychildren for Yuletide 2011. She requested additional stories about any of the gods within the novel, and I thought that digging a little deeper into Czernobog and his dualistic nature would be fun. And I got to play around with 2nd person POV, which always makes me feel proud and a wee bit pretentious in a Real Art kind of way. I had a great time writing it! Hope you enjoy it too.

flyakate: scene from the Philadelphia Story (Mike is in awe of CK Dexter Haven)
So I've been reading too many posts on Conversations in Marvel on Tumblr and so I decided to poke around on the website that lets you make fake Facebook posts (not shockingly, this website is called This is definitely on the road to a bigger something that I am rock tumbling around in my brain, but I thought people would get a kick out of it, so there.

Hope you enjoy it?

Title: The Power of Social Media
Summary: Just a little talk between friends.
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames pre-slash
Rating: PG-13 for some bad language
Notes: It really makes no sense for them to be using Facebook at all, I realize. But the idea was too funny to pass up.

Title: Kiss Me Better (But Keep Your Gas Mask On)
Summary: “Hey, Mr. “I can kill a man with a toothpick and my thumbs”, I’m sure you SEALs have a whole guidebook about what to do during a unnatural disaster, so if you could start mentally paging through, that’d be great."
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: Danny/Steve (established)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,343
Spoilers: none
Notes: While driving home one day and listening to My Chemical Romance's newest slice of dystopic post-apocalyptic awesomeness, I was struck with an image of Kono and Steve and Danny stuck someplace during some kind of world-ending disaster. Then the title stuck and... here we are. Written for the Hawaii Five-O Fandom Blowout. Enjoy!

It’s been three hours since they’d heard from Catherine, a full twenty minutes past her promised check in and every time Steve’s eyes flick uneasily to the silent two-way radio on the desk his shoulders tighten more and Danny can read the fear on his face even more clearly. )
flyakate: Grouchy Kermit with text (Eureka OT3)
It's finally the magic day where we get to find out who wrote what (and perhaps why). I wrote:

In Case of Emergency, Head Towards the Nearest Exit
Eureka; Jack and Nathan; PG; 2,861 words
Everyone's set to celebrate Stark's miraculous return to Eureka. But nothing, even a simply party, can actually go as planned in Eureka.

My recipient wanted what everyone secretly wants: a chance for Nathan to be back in Eureka and solve things with Jack, snarking all the way. They also spoke of a love of all the made up science (overly cold ice cores that take over Eureka! Intelligence draining chicken breasts? I mean, come on!) that they have. So, having Fargo's computer program somehow merge with Henry's building program? No problem! I have a huge fondness for writing Jack (I can totally see his hand gestures and facial expressions, it's bizarre) and gosh, he and Nathan were amazing together. Go, read! Enjoy! If you read my other fic (with the amazing snowstorm! It was awesome!) I continue my theme of all the ridiculous paperwork that Jack has to no doubt fill out after all of these (because every government agency has paperwork, even in Eureka).

It's set in the gap between the end of season 3 and the beginning of season 4 (clearly in watching canon there has to have been a time gap between the two) so it doesn't require any rewriting of canon (though you know that Stark and Grant would be soooo amazingly snarky at each other too! It would be something Jack and Nathan could bond over!)


I received:

V for Vendetta; Evey/V; R; 3,117 words
Evey and Finch are going through papers connected to V’s life and legacy, and it makes Evey think back to an evening she never told anyone about.

I love this! It takes all the twisty, complicated stories that people tell about each other and places Evey and Finch in V's compound going through his papers. The memory that Evey is reminded of (and the resulting Evey/V) is fascinating and I can totally see this as a deleted scene from canon.


So many good fics, so little time. A few recs:

Ever wanted to cross Anthony Bordain with Narnia? Well, now you can: No Reservations: Narnia. PURE GENIUS.

cooking shows + Cooks Illustrated + Muppets = awesome. Otherwise known as Cooks llustrated vs. the Holidays; or Science: It Works

A plethora of gorgeously creepy and terrifying stories set in the Gaiman universe of A Study in Scarlet: here

What You See Is What You Get (If You're Looking Hard Enough): a stunning Mentalist steampunk AU with witches, wizards, empaths and telepaths, oh my!

A story that slots in perfectly with the rest of the Chronicles of Amber, in all their backstabby, coniving, convoluted glory - Breaking Patterns. And, more cracktastically, A Unicornmas Dinner with the Amber Royal Family. OMG so funny.

Hoping everyone had a lovely holiday--mine was full of family stuff (dramatic and otherwise) and trying to catch up on sleep. I've been working super long hours both at subbing and tutoring AND application reading, so my LJ presence has been kind of crap. Hopefully that will change, because I need to squee with everyone about Hawaii Five-O (go read the hotness at [ profile] kissemdanno)! And finally catching up on Criminal Minds! (sheesh, they've gotten so CREEPY)

Happy beginning of 2011, all!

Another one! Clearly, writing the boys (singly or together) is my new writing happy place. Who'd have thought?

Title: Shortest Distance Between Two Points

Notes: Not of the characters of NCIS are mine. For entertainment, not profit. Enjoy!
