firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
It took me long enough to get my [livejournal.com profile] hpcon_envy fics done, but done and posted they are. Probably just about in time for the next round for Dragon Con. *rolls eyes @ self* Also, these were meant to be drabbles. Only one came close, and one got completely away from me and threatened to keep going. Oops?

Title: First Steps
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] bambu345
Fandom(s): Vorkosigan
Rating: G
Word Count: 121
Prompt: Perhaps the moment before Cordelia sees Aral after having escaped her own planet? She's left everything for him, but hasn't seen him yet after having made such an enormous, bridge-burning choice.
A/N: Once I revisited this bit of canon, I realized I had to go a tad earlier, as we actually do get Cordelia's interior monologue as she goes from meeting Count Piotr to finding Aral. Hope this suits.

Title: Anything but Routine
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] morethansirius
Fandom(s): In order of appearance: Torchwood, Harry Potter, Doctor Who
Rating: G
Word Count: 1452
Prompt: I would love to see what happens when Doctor Ten, Captain Jack and Unspeakable Snape all arrive to investigate the same crime scene/alien phenomenon/magical occurrence.
A/N: Set just before “Reset” for Torchwood, between the “Voyage of the Damned” & “Partners in Crime” for Doctor Who, and way after Deathly Hallows for the Potterverse.

Title: Everything Hasn't Changed Yet
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] orlando_switch
Fandom(s): Harry Potter, Torchwood
Rating: G
Word Count: 200
Prompt: The post Voldemort era leaves Lucius disillusioned and (according to Jason Isaac) emasculated - and therefore in dire need to regain his self-confidence/masculinity/virility and a new perspective at the world. Unfortunately, everyone in his own world is too busy building up their life to offer him a helping hand. I'd like to see an encounter between him and captain Jack, a man who has seen it all, done it all but never lost his touch to celebrate life.
A/N: Sometime in 1999, well after Deathly Hallows and before Jack assumes control of Torchwood 3.
firefly124: Jack, Rose, & the 9th Doctor (OT3 with 9 by dameruth)
I didn't write anything, haven't even managed to write my [livejournal.com profile] hpcon_envy prompts yet, but I've very much enjoyed reading the fills.

Wrap-up post with links to each fic here.

Will post a real post sometime soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the fic!

Cut for Miracle Day spoilers. Is anyone still avoiding those? Very much a classic series question though. )

Nothing to do with the fic I'm writing, btw. (Dear Attention John Hart, you are not invited. This fic is annoying me enough without your help. Besides, you got yourself a cameo in last year's [livejournal.com profile] wintercompanion summer/holiday fest. No love, author.) Which I need to get back to. Just a random thought.

ETA: In other news, the 506 words I wrote last week? Are gone. Since when do I ever close a document without saving? Since when does Open Office not offer to recover something if the computer did a restart or something with an unsaved document open? Argh!!!!
firefly124: Jack holding Ianto icon by iconillusion (janto6 by iconillusion)
Title: The Past is Like the Weather (it will come and it will go)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lionessvalenti
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing/Rating: Jack/Ianto, PG-13
Summary: Jack and Ianto couldn't imagine a different life.
Why you should read this: So, I was in the mood for comfort fic last night, and as I went through my tabs, found this one that had been sitting open for a bit. It starts off as curtainfic, which is one of the things I will turn to for comfort fic. Yeah, it's unrealistic, but it's some of my favorite characters getting a happy life that canon would never let them have, and sometimes that's what I'm in the mood for. Then, and here's why you should read it even if you loathe curtainfic, it takes a sharp left turn, ties up a loose end from canon and in the process exposes a bit of logic-fail in canon, and resolves a bit angstily but yet still hopefully. Seriously, I do think you'll enjoy it even (perhaps especially) if you spend some of the first bit rolling your eyes at the unlikeliness of it all.
firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
It's not what I'm meant to be writing, but in hopes of getting things moving in the writing department, I played a bit over at [livejournal.com profile] tw100 and ended up with a three-drabble series.

Titles: Dressed for the Occasion. Not., Life Is a ..., and Heard It All
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters: Ianto/Jack
Challenge: Unloved Prompts, All Hallows, Cabaret, Cookbooks
Rating: G (How is it that I keep writing G-rated TW fic? Must up the innuendo.)
Notes: While not a crossover, there is a Buffy reference in the first one.

I may yet try to do more with the "unloved prompts" that continues this tale. It's kind of fun trying to stitch them together like this.
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
No, this isn't a hiccup. This is me reposting the rec now that the fic is available on the author's journal, unflocked.

Title: Moments; Singular
Author: [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices
Summary: It starts with the moment that Torchwood Twelve hires the crew of Serenity for a job.
Word Count: 3,400 words
Pairings/Characters: Jack/Kaylee, Rex, crew of Firefly
Crossover With: Firefly, After Miracle Day for Torchwood and after Serenity (the film) for Firefly
Rating/Warnings: R for sexing, swearing, and, um, non-fatal character death
Why you should go read it: There are so many character insights, for all the characters, written into this that it's hard to know what to say without giving it all away. I will say that I don't think I knew precisely why Jack/Kaylee was one of the possible pairings I suggested, but [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices sussed it right out, played the two of them off each other beautifully, and brought tears to my eyes more than once in the process. There are also funny moments, balancing it all out wonderfully.
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
Title: The Wilde Job
Prompt: #13 - The objective of the Leverage team's latest caper turns out to be an alien artifact that Torchwood is after, so both groups join forces.
Summary: A Torchwood cold case becomes the Leverage team's new case. A con within a con ensues.
Word Count: ~2700
Pairings/Characters: Full Torchwood and Leverage teams with canon pairings/tensions, past Jack/historical figure, and a hint of past Jack/Sophie
Crossover With: Leverage
Rating/Warnings: PG13/None
Contains: Graphic abuse of series timelines and the odd bit of swearing.
A/N: Thanks to [insanejournal.com profile] angela_snape and [personal profile] jooles34 for beta-reading on incredibly short notice. This went a bit afield of the original prompt, but I hope it serves and, in its timey-wimey way, still fits.

There's a ton of other great stories over there, crossovers with Sherlock, Primeval, Criminal Minds, The Adventures of Jules Verne, and probably others I've forgotten. Go, read, enjoy! Just, for anything rated higher than PG13, you'll have to join the comm, as those stories are locked.
firefly124: kaylee frye (kaylee comic by ubiquirk)
Now that my fic for [livejournal.com profile] torchwood_fest is off to the betas, I am finally reading what has already been posted, and I'm absolutely ecstatic over the fic written to fill the prompt I wrote.

ETA: Damn, I'd forgotten that anything rated above PG13 was flocked to community members only. Sorry! Will re-link when it's posted elsewhere after the fest.

Title: Moments; Singular
Author: [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices
Summary: It starts with the moment that Torchwood Twelve hires the crew of Serenity for a job.
Word Count: 3,400 words
Pairings/Characters: Jack/Kaylee, Rex, crew of Firefly
Crossover With: Firefly, After Miracle Day for Torchwood and after Serenity (the film) for Firefly
Rating/Warnings: R for sexing, swearing, and, um, non-fatal character death
Why you should go read it: There are so many character insights, for all the characters, written into this that it's hard to know what to say without giving it all away. I will say that I don't think I knew precisely why Jack/Kaylee was one of the possible pairings I suggested, but [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices sussed it right out, played the two of them off each other beautifully, and brought tears to my eyes more than once in the process. There are also funny moments, balancing it all out wonderfully.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to not only go read the rest of the fest, but also everything [livejournal.com profile] inkvoices ever wrote.

The [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stockings have gone live, and I received lots of lovely stocking-stuffers. There are cheery holiday wish macros, an SS/HG icon by [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen, and four lovely fics:

A Glimpse of the Future by [livejournal.com profile] wendymr (DW, 9/Rose/Jack, rated T)

Steel by [livejournal.com profile] philomytha (Vorkosigan, Simon Illyan and Alys Vorpatril, rated G)

Patient, Kind, and Varied by [livejournal.com profile] sahiya (DW, Eleven/River/Rose/Jack and various combinations thereof, rated M)

Untitled TW/SJA crossover by [livejournal.com profile] fififolle (TW/SJA, Owen and Clyde, rated G)

I've already said it there, but thanks to all the lovely gifters, and also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] medie and all the volunteers that make the fun that is [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking happen! Last night was hell on wheels at work, so coming home to all these awesome gifts was just so perfect. Please go check out the cool icon and/or the great fics and leave them some love too.

I also had fun writing a few stocking-stuffers, though not as many as I'd set out to do. There's at least one that may yet happen if I can dig myself out of the clueless-Yank hole I dug myself into. *crosses fingers*

Try, Try Again for [livejournal.com profile] ariestess (Leverage, Sophie/Parker, rated G)

Switch for [livejournal.com profile] wendymr (DW, 9/Rose/Jack, rated G)

Foreign Influence for [livejournal.com profile] philomytha (Vorkosigan, Gregor/Laisa, rated G)

Ulterior Motive for [livejournal.com profile] yamx (DW, pre-9/Rose/Jack, rated G)

Living Well for [livejournal.com profile] joking (DW, Jenny/Vastra, G)

A Night to Forget for [livejournal.com profile] sahiya (DW, Eleventy and Jack and Rose, rated G)

Yes, I never got out of G territory, even with Jack. Go figure. LOL
firefly124: river song smiling (river smiling by michaela0823)
First: Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating, and happy Sunday to everyone else!

Second: Squee! My Mistletoe and Hallucinogens gift at [community profile] bowtiesnblasters posted, and it is lovely!

Title: I See Your Face
Author: [personal profile] keenquing
Fandom: Doctor Who
Rating/Pairing: PG, River/Doctor
Prompt: Sting's "If I Ever Lose My Faith in You"
Why you should go read it: It's a lovely ... I almost want to call it a character sketch, though that isn't quite right, but it has very cool insights into River's character and how she views the Doctor. And it's both Christmassy and not, with wonderfully telling details.

Third: My M&H fic has also posted. If you're up (heh) for a bit of Eleven/River/Jack, swing on by and check out Chance Would Be a Fine Thing as well.
firefly124: river song with gun (river bamf by michaela0823)
Title: Damsel in Distress
Author: [livejournal.com profile] clare009
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Nine/Rose Nine/River Eleven/River
Spoilers: Up through "Let's Kill Hitler"
Summary: River has finally found the Doctor again.

This was a really fun read. And now I must race out the door to do a mandatory training on my day off.
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
Title: There Are Stranger Things in Leadworth than in Heaven or Hell
Author: [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends
Fandom: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Rating/Pairings: PG, Rory/Amy, Jack/Ianto
Summary: Leadworth seems to be full of surprises for Torchwood.
Why you should go read it right now: Because of course Leadworth would have weirdness to attract Torchwood, and Rory and Jack interacting on Rory's home turf is something that should totally have happened in canon, and now has in my head-canon, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends. Plus, haven't you been wondering what-all happened in those two years between the Atraxi/Prisoner Zero business and Amy taking off the night before her wedding? Well, then. Go, read, and enjoy.

(Erm, I guess this also serves as my "yes, we survived Irene and even have our power back" post.)
firefly124: charlie bradbury grooving in a glass elevator (Default)
Finished Cryoburn the other night. Even knowing a particular character development was destined to be coming up, even seeing all the foreshadowing for exactly what it was, that was quite the gut-punch. No wonder I put off reading it. Cut for a spoiler that really isn't a spoiler, since Bujold had said all along that the next book would contain this particular element. )

Also, an epilogue composed of self-contained, exactly 100 word drabbles? With a definition for the unfamiliar of what a drabble is? Stroke of genius. Admittedly, if someone did that in fandom, as we're so accustomed to drabbles and drabble-series, it might not have gone over quite as well. But it was such a surprise and the format worked so well for what she was doing that I just loved it.

In other news, orientation at work proceeds apace. I definitely prefer working the floor to supervising, despite the fact I'm basically just pushing pills. I apparently have two more weeks of orientation scheduled, plus the iv certification class that hasn't been scheduled yet. But I'm definitely feeling more confident about it all.

The 3rd annual [community profile] wintercompanion Summer/Holiday fest has started with a lovely bit of Jack/Nine hurt/comfort. I'm looking forward to seeing them all. Very cool approach they took with the prompts, too, using the "psychic password" format we encountered in "The Doctor's Wife" of a color, a number, an emotion, and an aroma. Very effective and evocative, and the prompts are open for people to write/draw/create other things throughout the month, which should lead to seeing some intriguing variety on how people run with them.

I think I'm about over my "What the hell was I thinking?" attack re: my [community profile] femslash11 assignment and have moved into research mode, which is a very good thing.

And now, time to run around and do stuff to get ready for this weekend's Anadikia retreat. Coming up with appropriate offerings has been rather challenging. (I got it into my head that I needed special liquor offerings for each of the Temple patrons. Ginger liqueur for Zeus and Oracle of the Sun Shiraz for Apollon were easy enough to find. I'd wanted retsina for Pan, but nobody around here even knows what it is, much less carries it, including the place Tim found it a year or so ago. So I went with Bully Hill wine that has a goat for a logo. *facepalm*)

Have a great weekend all! Don't break the intarwebz while I'm gone!
firefly124: lupin in poa (lupin by d0rk_icons)
Title: When You Go Down To The Woods Today (You're Sure Of A Big Surprise)
Author: [personal profile] remuslives23
Pairings/Characters: Jack Harkness/Remus Lupin
Rating: NC17
Summary: This is the story of how Jack learned the truth about werewolf mythology.
Why you should read it: It's hot as hell, makes complete sense as a crossover point, and did I mention the hotness? Of course, I'm slightly biased, as [personal profile] remuslives23 wrote it for me as part of the [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction fundraiser. Go. Read. Enjoy.

AO3 stuff

If anyone else who participated in the Whipped Cream Day mini-ficathon uses An Archive of Our Own, there is now a collection for those fics, which you can either post to or, if your fic is already up on AO3, I think you can edit to associate with the collection if you want.

Also, since [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking had an AO3 collection, I've uploaded the various things I wrote there.



Whew! That's more than I realized. And at some point, I need to upload the rest, just to have everything in one place. At some point.

Now to tend to various fandom responsibilities I've let slide. Meep!
firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
Forgot to do this yesterday. There's certainly nowhere near as much in years past, partly due to nursing school and partly due to the 271K+ insanity that is The Fic That Wouldn't Stay Dead. But other stuff did get written!



Of course, compiling that reminded me that I missed the deadline to write something Snupiny for December for the Year of Snupin challenge. *sigh* I reminded myself more than once over the past week to do it, too. Damn.

Still trying to write a few more [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking stuffers, as the reveal isn't until the 6th, I think, so rather than keep track of what was 2010 and what was 2011, I'll just count it all as 2011.
firefly124: river song smiling (river smiling by michaela0823)
Title: A River by Any Other Name Would Play a Different Song
Author: [personal profile] firefly124
Fandom: Doctor Who
Prompter: [livejournal.com profile] silvia_elisa
Prompt: Jack raising River. Baptised with a perfect name.
Rating/warning: G, kidfic
Word Count: 580
Summary: Jack should’ve known she was going to be a handful.
A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] spoiler_song One Night of Writing. Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] alt_universe_me, [livejournal.com profile] elfwreck/[personal profile] elf, and [livejournal.com profile] queenortart for lightning beta-reading and Brit-picking! Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends for the bizarre chat that led to part of River's heritage. Happy New Year, all!

firefly124: fanfic writing is my therapy (writing therapy by savine_snape)
Mostly fluff, occasional angst. It's nice to actually be able to do a weekly wrap-up post.

firefly124: jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster (jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster)
Title: Greater Love
Author: [personal profile] sahiya
Fandoms: Doctor Who (spoilers for "The Beast Below")
Characters/Rating: Liz X/Jack Harkness, PG
Summary: Liz could not remember a time without the Captain.
Why you should read it: Because it's Liz X/Jack! Which will make no sense at all if you've not seen the ep. (I considered using an LJ-cut on the pairing and summary, then figured that while, ok, a bit spoilery, but not really as it won't make any sense.) Also, it makes perfect sense through a couple of layers of characterization. And now I want more of this pairing, as I imagine you will as well. So, if you go read and enjoy, please join me in egging [personal profile] sahiya on leave feedback.

It seems the last couple of fic recs I've done have used this icon, though they don't quite fit. Clearly, I need to seek out another Jack icon.
firefly124: jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster (jack_doctors_rose_icon by locker_monster)
Title: Oh, Boy! I'm a Time Lord!
Author: [personal profile] humantales
Rating: PG
Fandom: Doctor Who, Quantum Leap, Torchwood
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Sam Beckett, Al Calavicchi
Spoilers: Doctor Who through The Parting of the Ways. Quantum Leap through Mirror Image. Torchwood through Children of Earth Day Five.
Word Count: 14,292
Summary: Two different forms of incompatible energy existing in the same space-time would create havoc, wouldn't it? What would they have to put right?

I've had this open in a tab for about a month, I guess. Kept meaning to read it, even mentioned it to Patsfan, who is a huge Quantum Leap fan. When I did, he asked, "But the Doctor's always putting things right anyway. What does he need Sam leaping in for?" By the time the answer to that question became clear in the story, I was dope-slapping myself. Obviously the Doctor needed a kick in the pants to fix this and, well, getting kicked out of his own body would be one way to do it. It's awesome. Go read. Even if you don't know Quantum Leap, I think enough is explained to the DW characters to make it clear.
