Despite the real world being really pretty terrible in a variety of different ways (my country, my family, and my body have all taken serious damage recently), I realized that I've actually written a number of fanfic that I forgot to post about here.

So, to catch up:


A Lever and a Place to Stand
fandom: BBC's Sherlock
summary: John doesn’t use his magic… except this once: Sherlock will live!


Lone Wolf and Alpha
fandom: Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs
sequel to: Leah's Happy Ending
summary: Leah was far from the only female werewolf in a bad situation. They too get their chance at happiness.


What Happens in Budapest... Comes Home to Roost
fandom: Avengers, Marvel Cinematic Universe
summary: Found family and unexpected allies, monsters that needed killing and recovering from brainwashing, … yeah, the New York alien invasion really did remind Natasha of Budapest.


this is unexpected
fandom: Star Wars
summary: a self-indulgent response to the many, wonderful time-travel Star Wars stories that send a more experienced and more knowledgeable Obi-Wan Kenobi back in time to change the many tragedies to come


Everybody Lies
fandom: James Bond movies (Spectre specifically) and BBC's Sherlock
summary: "Spectre" made a lot more sense once I considered: what if all the characters are lying?
Denbigh and Oberhauser, Bond and Mallory, and most certainly Q. Everybody. Mycroft Holmes is not best pleased.


The Angel of Hell's Kitchen
fandom: Daredevil
summary: Foggy struggles to come to terms with discovering his friend Matt is the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, and in the meantime, life happens.
“It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.” -- Joseph Conrad



plus two illustrations I did, inspired by two other fanfic that I've read and enjoyed a great deal:

Tyrant Queen of Mutant Ninja Were-Lemurs
fandom: Avatar, the Last Airbender, alternate universe
description: in Chapter 6 of Kryal's amazing fic, The Dragon-King's Temple, Sokka is worried about what could have happened to Toph, since even if she was attacked by mutant ninja were-lemurs, she would just kick their butts and be taken back to their lair to become their queen, and the world just wasn’t ready for Toph, Tyrant Queen of Mutant Ninja Were-Lemurs. And so this happened.
inspired by: The Dragon-King's Temple by Kryal
fandom of inspiration fic: Avatar the Last Airbender and Stargate SG1
summary of inspirational fic: Through the spite of the spirits or plain rotten chance, a door that would have been better left untouched has opened. On the other hand, with Fire and Earth as one's allies, sometimes escaping is the easy part.
Even the Dragon-King's temple floods.


Raincloud, the Rabbit of Caerbannog
description: The picture that Sephiroth took of Raincloud, the Rabbit of Caerbannog, in Chapter 22 of Off the Line by esama
inspired by: Off the Line by esama
fandom of inspirational fic: Final Fantasy VII
summary of inspirational fic: In which Cloud gets a Virtual Reality Dream Console – ShinRa's latest in virtual reality technology. Aaand everything pretty much goes downhill from there.




Fanfic!

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted here. So here's a bit of house-cleaning, with fic I've posted on AO3 but not yet posted here:

Obi-Wan's Leap
fandom: Star Wars
summary: The Force is always there for the Force sensitive - there is no escape or avoidance. Obi-Wan has spent his life living with the Force and meditating on it. In the end, he leaps into it entirely.


What's In a Name
fandom: Leverage, Highlander
summary: “Names come and go. People who know who, and what, you are… that is more rare.”


Here We Belong
fandom: Highlander, Pretadors
summary:
“Hello, Earth,” Isabelle’s voice had been received by any radio directed to the stars. “We have an alien space ship, a partial list of humans kidnapped and killed by the aliens, and a long story to tell.”
Duncan MacLeod had left Paris to join the quickly growing community built up around the landed spacecraft three days after the first broadcast.
Joe didn’t follow.


an ancient absent god
fandom: Highlander
summary:
“Believe in yourself. You are an ancient, absent god, discussed only rarely by literary scholars. So if you don’t believe, no one will.” – @NightValeRadio, 7/4/13, 9:28 AM


Every miracle is a betrayal revealed
fandom: Highlander
summary:
“Come on, miracles are just random good things that happen. How is that a betrayal?”
“It’s a random good thing, yes, but it always begs the questions: why didn’t it happen sooner? More often? Better? If it could happen once, what about all those times when it didn’t happen?”
“So the world isn’t fair or nice.” Joe shrugged. “We already knew that. A miracle just shows that sometimes there’s an exception.”

When I first saw the preview for Jupiter Ascending, some months back, I was kind of ambivalent about the movie. It looked muddled and messy and fraught and while I still kind of wanted to see it, I wasn't all that excited about it. And then the reviews started coming in, and I realized, okay, yes, I absolutely needed to see this. And it was AWESOME!

Oh, it wasn't a great film and it won't go down in history as transforming the storytelling process or anything, but it was an amazingly fun ride to be on and just stuff kept on happening (and I want a pair of those roller-blading gravity boots so much!) and it was just a whole lot of fun. I definitely need to go back and see it again. And I really hope there are sequels. And I hope those sequels are just as ridiculous as this one.

One of the real strengths of this movie, is that it does a wonderful job of walking that line between not taking itself too seriously but also not being too self-conscious either. It is what it is and it went with it.

Anyway, while this movie introduced us to three potential main bad guys, only one of them wound up (presumed) dead at the end. And there was a moment in there, where I thought one different decision on our heroine's part could have had interested ramifications.

And thus:

One Different Decision
(on AO3) (on FF.net)
summary: The impact of one different decision: Titus Abrasax does not survive his attempt at marriage to Jupiter.

So 2014 sucked pretty badly. I am really hoping that 2015 is a massive improvement. (And please, please let it not be worse -- I have a finite number of family members.)

Anyway, the end of the year showed some improvement and the new year is starting off well. So I am paying a bit more attention to fandom and realized how long it's been since I posted here. Even when I had posted fanfic, I never got around to updating here. So, to correct this error: 

The Price of Secrets (on AO3) (or on FF.net)
Fandoms: Buffy and NCIS
Summary: This fight for jurisdiction did not go the way Gibbs had expected.

Leah's Happy Ending (on AO3)
Fandom: the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
Summary:Everyone knew that Bran had only married Leah because she was too stupid and petty for him to ever run the risk of falling in love with her. No one thought about how Leah herself must feel that knowledge like a constant insult. No one deserves that kind of abuse.

The Ambassador (on AO3) (or on FF.net)
Fandoms: Labyrinth and Stargate
Summary: Ambassador Sarah Williams is brought in to the Stargate program to help deal with the Tok'ra. (set after Her Kingdom as Great, and does not stand on its own.)

Smooth as a River Stone (on AO3) (or on FF.net)
Fandoms: Highlander and Stargate
Summary: Thousands of years later, Jake O'Neil's descendant looks out the temple palace to see what the god Methos sees. (This will make absolutely no sense if you haven't already read A Square Peg in a Round Hole.)


To everyone reading this: Happy new year!

Also, last year, (sigh, real life got and then remained intense), the wonderful [personal profile] pentapus  also made me a drawing from the Books of the Raksura.

Stone with babies


And here, finally, is the story I wrote for it: 

The Consort Bower of Indigo Cloud
Summary: Before Moon arrived at Indigo Cloud Court, the consort bower had been empty for some years and the court as a whole slowly dying. Something had to change. The three consorts of Indigo Cloud (Stone, Moon, and Ember) had had very different expectations, but the reality surprised each of them.
Available on AO3, FF.net, and below:

Last year (good grief, time got away from me), the amazing [personal profile] pentapus drew a picture of Taura and Methos on a space station.

Taura and Methos on a space station

Here (finally) is the story I wrote for it: 

Walking Away Whistling

Summary: Taura doesn't like House Bharaputra. She doesn't like Cetaganda. And she is extremely curious as to why they are both trying to acquire Dr. Pierce Argall.
Available on: AO3, FF.net, and below:

While attempting to work on a different fanfic I've promised, my muse got distracted by a short meeting between Xander Harris of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Jethro Gibbs of NCIS.

Thus, mostly to get it out of the way:

The Price of Secrets (on AO3) (on FF.net) (on TTH)
This fight for jurisdiction did not go the way Gibbs had expected.

Read the story here )

Real life has been keeping me quite busy recently, but then an episode of Person of Interest ("The Crossing") came and punched my muse in the face. "The Crossing" followed such a fabulous episode ("Endgame," oh my god, "Endgame" was so awesome) and was pretty good itself except for one plot point which was so idiotic that it was either one of the characters (Reese) flipping out and having a break from reality or the writers completely going off the rails. Thus, I decided that it needed to be corrected into one of the characters flipping out.

Thus, I added another chapter to Holidays for the Not-Really-Dead, a collection that had previously been fairly light-hearted, but now takes a turn for the angst-ridden, and once more I essentially reformat a rant into a fanfic, and give you: 

Winter Solstice
On the longest night of the year, in the dark and cold, Finch hopes for the coming days, Reese fears where he went wrong, and Joss has reached the end of both hope and fear.

More than a year ago, I wrote a quick comment fic in response to the prompt: Avengers movieverse, Tony/+Loki, Instead of becoming a supervillain when he fell to Earth Loki somehow ended up as Tony Stark's personal assistant.

Now, some eighteen months and 29K words (not to mention a new degree, a new job, and a new residence) later, I have finally completed Tony's New Assistant (also on AO3). It kind of got away from me (darn trickster Loki!) and I finally managed to complete it less by the standard method of tying up all the loose ends as by my own method of tying up some of them and declaring that the rest are really decorative fringe. (It's not a bug, it's a feature!) 

The experience makes me even more impressed by those authors who somehow manage to keep an epic story going for years on end. I enjoyed writing the fic, but, dear god, I am glad that it's finally completed.

In an attempt to do something mildly productive that has a finished object that I can point to and say "I accomplished something," I've written two new short fanfics. Given that I'm currently in that sort of mind set to begin with, it seemed like a golden opportunity to complete some of the depressing stories that I normally don't write. Thus:

The Trial of Lancelot (on AO3 and on FF.net)
I love Heather Dale's music, but I pretty cordially dislike Arthurian legend. (First season Merlin being a rare exception.) Thus, I have decidedly mixed feelings regarding Heather Dale's song, The Trial of Lancelot. It's on my regular playlist, but it always makes me kind of mad.
Thus, I wrote a short fic on my issues, particularly around the verse:
"The trial's charge was treason,
And betrayal of an oath.
And should his guilt be proven,
Death would fall on traitors both.”

 



Insanity of Survival (on AO3 and on FF.net)
A while back I was rereading a much of Valdemar stories and thought it would be pretty awesome to have Methos interacting with the Companions of Valdemar, seeing as how they all look like white horses, and he's got something of a past with white horses. With a bit of prompting from Pentapus, I wound up writing two different stories about post-Death-on-a-white-horse!Methos dealing with Companions. Meanwhile, I thought of, but decided not to write a version that has pre-Death-on-a-white-horse!Methos having been a Herald of Valdemar... and then somehow becoming Death on a Horse. Well, here's that story.
Summary: Being Death was merely a side effect of the white horses, and the white horses were a result of having been ripped apart and left to survive.

Real life has been incredibly busy/messy for me lately. Not only busy, but it's all been mostly unpleasant business, so it saps away my will to do fanfic or anything else fun, other than sleep a lot and read what other people are writing. (Teen Wolf fanfic is highly addictive.)

But while I haven't been being very productive, other people have been and it just brightens my day.

Styxhana (aka styx) just translated a bunch of my stories into Chinese! Is that not awesome?! I am incredibly excited.
Check them out:

何梦将至 (What Dreams May Come)
米索斯的万圣节故事 (Halloween Story)
体验飞翔 (A Taste of Flight)
脱身之途 (Escape Route)
层层伪装 (Layers of Pretense)
任他何名 (By Any Other Name)
窥望深渊 (Into the Depths)

This is actually the third language (third! awesome!) that some of my stories have been translated into.

My first translation (and I was so excited that I actually forgot to mark down the date) was by black_leather, a Russian translation of Halloween Story by Methos: check it out!

My second translation (in September of 2008) was by Franavu, a Dutch translation of Halloween Story by Methos: check it out!

And now I have Chinese translations by Styx! Awesome!

Also, I have two illustrations made for me!

I got an illustration from IceAgeSurvivor123 for Icarus in October 2010. Coolness!

And an illustration from Pentapus in May 2012 for Seventh Time's the Charm and Every Ending a Beginning and Every Beginning an End. *grin*

Real life has been beating me down recently, but fandom is made up of so many awesome people doing wonderful things.

My last post was about a fix-it that I desperately wanted to read. I still desperately want to read it, but in the course of discussing it, I wrote a small drabble.

Thus, at [personal profile] elistaire 's request: This is Not the End



marbleglove: (Default)
Prompt: Highlander, Methos, Delusions of Grandeur

Ficlet: God of blindness
marbleglove: (Default)
Prompt: Avengers movieverse, Tony/+Loki, Instead of becoming a supervillain when he fell to Earth Loki somehow ended up as Tony Stark's personal assistant.

Ficlet: Tony's New Assistant, parts 1-3
marbleglove: (Default)

Prompt #1: Any, Any, It's okay, you don't need to do anymore

Ficlet #1: (The Avengers, Bruce Banner) Letting Go


Prompt #2: Marvel Movie Verse, Thor, he ends up supporting gay rights in public because apparently it isn't an issue in Asgard

Ficelt #2: Contract Law


marbleglove: (Default)
Prompt: Highlander/X-Men, Methos + Xavier, the only person he’s found whose mind he can’t feel at all

Fill: Peering Into the Depths




marbleglove: (Default)

Prompt #1: Author’s choice, author’s choice,
But though I have wept and fasted, wept and prayed,
Though I have seen my head (grown slightly bold) brought in upon a platter,
I am no prophet – here’s no great matter; I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat and snicker,
And in short I was afraid. (TS Eliot)


Ficlet #1: (Highlander, Kronos) What do you fear?



Prompt #2: X-Men First Class: Charles Xavier/Logan. He's not Erik, will never be...but eventually, it's become so much better

Ficlet #2: Worn down by time and metaphors






marbleglove: (Default)

A couple of ficlets:

Prompt: Harry Potter, author’s choice, magic responds to desires; the reason so many muggleborns have trouble using magic after learning about it is that they don't really believe they can do it

A/N: This one came out a bit angstier than I had originally intended, but here goes: 

Ficlet: Belief in Magic



Prompt: pofinterest-fic (Person of Interest) tweet challenge

Ficlet: Pattern Recognition




marbleglove: (Default)

Two limericks, one of which is actually gen:

Prompt: Harry Potter, Fawkes, A gold-feathered bird / Sings in the palm, without human meaning, / Without human feeling, a foreign song. (Wallace Stevens)

Fill: Limerick (gen)


Prompt: Highlander, any, swords

Fill: Limerick (not gen)


And then a ficlet:

Prompt: Highlander, Methos/Duncan, they are the last two of their kind

Fill: Lust and Bloodlust



marbleglove: (Default)
So I couldn't resist. Partly in response to sevencorvus' challenge on pofinterest-fic.

Rabbit Garden
