All fic. All the time.

Sometimes, I do not even have the decency to finish a fic before posting, so when you come back and want to read it again, it will have more scenes or fewer typos. If the changes are significant, I'll add an ETA note. Otherwise, you'll have to embrace uncertainty.

Take a look, stick around, enjoy yourself!

What the heck does this 'Ship-Take' tag mean?

It's where I write a pairing that I don't ship -- to fill a prompt, or just to see if I can figure out why people are so adamant about it. It means that you probably won't see more of that pairing around here.

Title: Novena (a.k.a. Et In Arcadia Ego)
Pairing: Aramis/Porthos
Summary: Nine prayers; one miracle.
A fusion with Martine Leavitt's Keturah and Lord Death. Off-screen character death, I guess, but I don't think it counts, since they're still hanging around, functioning in the fic like a living person. 9,000 words, PG.

Later, Aramis will remember that it was late summer when he first saw his angel. )

Title: i don't care if i lose
Characters: Winona Hawkins, Karen Sisco
Summary: Backstory. In the morning, there’s a church bombing connected to a murder connected back to Boyd Crowder. Winona misses Miami already. Character-swap, ladies-centric AU, inspired by But we are not men by [archiveofourown.org profile] moonshine_givens. PG for language, probably.

Dan Grant thought she might need some time to think things over... )

Title: i felt no guilt 'til i was caught
Characters: Ava Crowder, Raylan Givens, Boyd Crowder, (offscreen)Bowman Crowder
Summary: It's a series, now! Backstory. "...it was quite some time ago Ava laid down the law on your -- or anyone’s -- involvement in her affairs. As in, stay out of ‘em, ‘less you’re invited in." Character-swap, ladies-centric AU, inspired by But we are not men by [archiveofourown.org profile] moonshine_givens. PG-13. Mentions of domestic abuse.

The first time was a few years after Raylan came back... )

Title: Devious Cartography (aka the guns and casual sex mix)
Characters: Arthur, Neal Caffrey
Summary: Written for my own prompt on inception-kink, which was basically: Neal and Arthur, guns and theft and nice clothes. Arthur/Neal, implied Arthur/Eames. Most of this was inspired by the 'if you're not cheating, you're not trying' quote.


title from 'Going Postal' by Terry Prachett, which should tell you how much of a mess this turned out to be )
charybdis: (Default)
Title: Heart settled, hands cold (aka Brainships! the Halo+Warchild+Honor Harrington mix)
Characters: Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, various Avengers and Avenging auxiliaries.
Summary: Endgame ship is Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, inspired by windsweptfic's amazing fic, Aboard the MV Hawkeye, but not in the same verse. More like an AU of an AU. Things got out of hand and messy towards the end, structure-wise. Brainships and space travels are totally my jam, but I lost interest pretty much as soon as Cap2 came out, because Bucky/Natasha/Steve/Sam OT4. There are some scenes missing in the middle, too. Title is a quote from Warchild by Karin Lowachee.

Title: Mnemosyne (aka scenes from a girl!Bucky AU)
Characters: Bucky Barnes, Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers, various Avengers and Avenging auxiliaries.
Summary: Written largely for NaNoWriMo in 2012, based on MCU canon up to that point, with extrapolation and backstory based on comic canon. What (very) little plot there is was pretty much stolen directly from the Firebird folktale. Bucky/Natasha with Bucky+Steve and hints of past unrequited Bucky/Steve -- but it's not like anyone's broken up about it, and I'm actually quite happy with how I handled this throughline. If this thing had ever been completed, it would have had the following summary:

You’re in a car with a beautiful girl, and she won’t tell you that she loves you

(Love is for children)

Title: Retribution (aka we need some lady-monsters up in here, stat!)
Characters: Arthur, Eames, movie!John Constantine, other Inception characters, Mazikeen was supposed to carry the later parts of the fic
Summary: Once upon a time, I filled an inception kinkmeme prompt for Arthur and movie!John Constantine as brothers. This is the EPIC CROSSOVER fill that didn't work out. (for those interested, here's the fill that did.)

Title: Don't Tell Mom! (aka deaged!Clint, the creeper-free mix)
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, various Avengers and Avenging auxiliaries.
Summary: Another fic written in a fit of pique. I started because I was tired of seeing creepy!Coulson/deaged!Clint shenanigans, but got distracted by the Natasha+Steve friendship and then ran out of wank before I got to the end. I wasn't quite willing to admit that I was writing this fic, even as I was writing it, which lead to about three very similar files in varying stages of near-completion.

Title: and the light keeps streaming out
Characters: Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff
Summary: Clint smirks, says, "Who's the lucky soldier?"

"His name," Stevie says, taking the picture down and tracing her finger along the silver-edged frame, "was James Barnes, and he was the stupidest, sweetest son-of-a-gun I've ever known."

Originally posted as "lead me through solitude" for a prompt from the stevebucky fest. 4,000 words, PG-13 for gore and heavy makeouts (not at the same time).

Title: how nice a dame you can be
Summary: Captain America + Discworld's Lady, featuring Agents Carter as avatars and the Winter Soldier as either High Priest of an order built on a mirage and a pipe dream, or the subject of repeated ritual sacrifice -- there's no way to tell for sure. Is it Bucky/The Lady? Why is it from Steve's PoV? Even to myself I have no explanation for this one. 900 words, PG for threats.

Title: After the end of the world
Characters: Mako Mori, Raleigh Becket
Summary: "It'll be fine," Raleigh says, raising his hands in a soothing gesture. "The PPDC was officially dissolved. And the dress uniform is mostly to keep schmucks like me from looking like idiots in public. Just wear something nice. You have the official insignia pins; wear those."
1,400 words, G.

Title: Noho Akua
Summary: They say her mother's last words to her are, You will never be queen. This is true. (No, it's not.) Historical RPF, Princess Ka'iulani. Most of this is made up, but the historical events are real. Translations are in the title text, if not given in the fic. 900 words, G.

Summary: The one where it's Mike's ass and therefore, Mike's decision.(And his decision remains, "don't stick anything in there.")Written for a Suits kinkmeme prompt here. NC-17, 2,700 words.
Notes: Mike calls Harvey a kinky shit, and it's not explicitly stated that it's a joke, though it is.

So. The Losers Big Bang. I'm planning an Alice fusion, but Duchess keeps stealing the show. Here's the first thousand words so far. Yes, it's in desperate need of a rewrite. I'm saving that for after I figure out the rest of the story.

How Duchess Killed the Red Queen, Played the White Rabbit, and Saved Wonderland from CIA Gunrunners -- featuring Duchess, with guest appearances by Cougar )
