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 )

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.

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.

This entire part produces nothing but deleted scenes. Raugh, frustration! Some of the scenes are redundant, because I thought trying a different way would help... nope. Some parts are missing. Anyway.
********
this one is full of extreme continuity errors )
********
incomplete version where they've never met before )
********
yet another version of the middle where they planned the theft together. )
********

Whew! I feel better now, even if this is hardly progress. I just had to get it off my chest.

Something short that I cut out of the Supernatural fic that I'm working on. I'll probably have several more of the same in a few days -- after I get over myself and give in to the editor voice shouting cut that shit out over the first thousand words. Whatever.

***
Dean was twenty-two when Sam left for college.  He was twenty-two and he couldn't imagine knowing anything, anyone, better than he knew the line of Sam's shoulders, the sound of his step, the shape of his irritation.  More than that, he couldn't imagine not knowing those things.  But maybe -- and this is just dawning on him now -- maybe those things are only remnants of a life too dangerous for Sam to have.

Protect Sammy, has always been Dean's imperative, and if this is what it takes, shoving all the money he earned hustling pool over the last two weeks into Sam's hands and letting him take a bus to California, then that's what Dean will do.
