A master list of all my fiction from 2004 onwards - links go to my livejournal entries. Earlier stories (Smallville, plus a few Harry Potter drabbles) can be found in my livejournal memories.  Stories prior to 2006 are mostly not worth reading!  Disclaimer: none of the characters belong to me and no profit is being made.  Please note the ratings on stories before reading.  Feedback is always appreciated, however old the story.

Some of my stories are also available on Archive of Our Own - my page is here.  These stories can be downloaded as epub, html, pdf or mobi files, and can also be searched by pairing, genre, etc.  I'm slowly adding older stories to the archive. You can always find my latest stories here.

Latest update: July 9th 2012. I've added everything from this year so far, plus my yuletide stories from last December.  New fandoms are Luther, Tintin, The Duchess of Malfi, Warm Bodies, Revenge and The Avengers (2012).  There are also a couple of Generation Kill stories, a Sherlock ficlet, and a Sherlock/Harry Potter crossover.

in the end it's right [American Idiot, Tunny/Will/Extraordinary Girl (original Broadway casting), PG-13, 1,381 words, Dec 2010.]

all very pc, of course [Better Off Ted, Ted, Veronica, Lem, Phil, Linda, Rose, PG, 1,011 words, October 2009.]

He always wanted the forbidden.


BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN

all that is left is all that i hide [Brokeback Mountain, Ennis/Jack, 438 words, R, January 2008]

Anything You Can Do [Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spike/Buffy, PG-13, 697 words, July 2005]
Spike could sound really pompous when he got offended, kinda like Giles sometimes when Buffy ignored him, and oh my God no, Buffy so wasn't going there, not if she were ever going to have sex with Spike again.

What Is The Color of Now? [Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy/Faith, R, 100 words, May 2005]
There's no gray in Buffy's life, just black and white. And red.

Zombies in LA [NCIS: LA, ensemble, with NCIS and Burn Notice guests, PG, 673 words, Dec 2010.]

"We have to find our own paths and follow them wherever they lead. We're adventurers. We always have been, always will. We need to know, need to find new quests and ask new questions whenever we answer old ones. If we stopped, we wouldn't be humans any more."



CASTLE

Interrogations [Castle, Rick, Alexis, Kate, PG, 661 words, Dec 2010]
She has a dangerous technique. Sneaky.


The Outing [Castle, Esposito/Ryan, R, 1,758 words, Dec 2010]
"You ever think about, you know—?" Ryan asks, motioning between the two of them to identify what it is they might possibly want to think about.

CHRONICLES OF NARNIA

Knock On All Doors And Enter Nowhere [Chronicles of Narnia, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, G, 2,300 words, March 2006]
It isn't that Peter forgets exactly. The memories of Narnia are all still there, layered between memories of England, like the chocolate and vanilla layers in the marble cake mother used to make before the war and rationing. When Peter was very little, he used to like to peel the cake apart so that he could eat all the vanilla parts first, and save the chocolate until last.

And Indeed There Will Be Time [Chronicles of Narnia (books), Lucy/Caspian X, Susan, Peter, Edmund, Pg-13, 2,478 words, December 2005]
Time isn't the same here, in the real Narnia. Lucy's not sure if it's faster or slower or if it curls in lazy circles like a snail's shell, past and present and future all within reach for anyone who knows where to look.


CHUCK

Quality Time [Chuck (TV), Chuck, Casey, PG, 519 words, Dec 2010.]

He's always assumed he was just lucky.



DIRTY SEXY MONEY

The Believer [Dirty Sexy Money, Brian, Nick, PG-13, 606 words, December 2008.]

serpentine smile [Doctor Who, Eleven, Amy, Vincent, PG, 3,047 words, Aug 2010.]

a girl named hotel [Dollhouse, Echo, OFC, G, 430 words. No spoilers. April 2009.]
There's something missing.


THE DUCHESS OF MALFI - JOHN WEBSTER

hunt the badger by owl-light [The Duchess of Malfi - John Webster, Ferdinand/The Duchess, R, 2,216, April 2012.]
She is in his heart and will not leave. They are not the oneness of a husband and wife, but something stronger, the Devil's own pairing.


EUREKA

It's a White Oahu Christmas [Eureka/Hawaii Five-0/Leverage/Supernatural/White Collar, Vincent, Kono, Parker, Castiel, Neal, G, 1,450 words, Dec 2010.]

Three, Two, One, Boom [Burn Notice/NCIS/Firefly, Fiona Glenanne/Ziva David, PG, 324 words, Dec 2010.]

FRANKENSTEIN - NICK DEAR

Foreheads of men have bled where no wounds were [Frankenstein - Nick Dear, The Creature, Victor Frankenstein, R, 3,300 words, May 2011.]
Why do I not have your grace? You walk like water flows downhill in the riverbed at Ingolstadt, dancing over stones and laughing at the sweeps and curves of it. Such ease. You are beautiful, like nature is beautiful, like the simplest things in the world, the great and small, the blazing sun or a small golden flower petal. You run like the Arctic wind howls, in bounds and leaps that have no start or end.


FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

I don't wanna be lonely tonight [Friday Night Lights, Landry/Tyra, PG-13, post 3x11, 304 words, January 2009]

I can no more cross this room than Zeno's arrow [Friday Night Lights, Jason, Tim, Lyla, R, 2,566 words, December 2006]

THE GATES

Selectively Blind [The Gates, Nick/Dylan, PG-13, 6,167 words, Aug 2010.]
"I'm not sure which is the harder aspect of acclimatizing to The Gates: vampires and werewolves, or the frequency and tedium of the parties."


GENERATION KILL

A Second Eden [Generation Kill, Lord Fick/Mr. Colbert, Miss Amelia Fick, Regency AU, R, 1,665 words, March 2012. The same universe as Trip the Lake Fantastic and The Music Thief.]
Perhaps that was Eve's sin in the garden, not a simple act of disobedience, not illicit carnal relations, but the forbidden realization that God holds life in his hand, past, present and future, and it is all inevitable.


drowning but not scared of the water [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, NC-17, 1,359 words, March 2012.]

Zombies, Superheroes and Fucking Angels [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, AU, R, 1,576 words, January 2010]
It's a crayon drawing of him and Nate, holes in the corners as though it's been tacked to a wall. There's no doubt it's them, even though the two stick figures are crudely drawn and appear to have wings. Or possibly capes — Brad can't be sure.


The Fisherman and the Merman, or The Time Brad Learned Mermen Were Real (and Hot!) [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, Rudy, Doc, Pappy, Sixta, Encino Man, Ray, PG-13, AU, crack, first-time, 8,511 words, December 2009.]
When Brad decided to become a fisherman, he took a two day hike, cut down a tree in the forest, dragged it home (okay, he borrowed a pony to help pull it — he's strong, not superman), and made a boat out of the tree.
I'll give you a moment to stop and think about that.


chasing shadows [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, Ray, Poke, PG-13, 2,004 words, December 2009.]

as far east (north, south or west) [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, NC-17, first time, 3,612 words, August 2009]
"Fuck me," Brad says. "Yeah, wouldn't surprise me if he wanted to," Poke says. Brad looks at him, icy calm. "What? I've got eyes, dog. I'm just saying, the way he used to look at you, well... he didn't look at none of the rest of us quite like that."

Semper Fidelis Fideli Amato [Generation Kill, Brad/Nate, NC-17, 2,355 words, July 2009]

Just Call Me... [Good Omens, vaguely Crowley/Aziraphale, PG, 500 words, December 2005]

Adam and Eve It [Green Wing, Guy, Mac, Caroline, PG-13, 804 words, December 2007]

Baby On Board [Green Wing, Martin, Guy, Mac, Angela, Caroline, PG-13, 427 words, September 2006]
Mac shrugs. Angela manages something through a mouthful of apple that might be 'not me' or might be 'fuck me' - Mac's not sure. Caroline's too engrossed in her Mars bar to pay much attention.

But really, this is it. The day.

Fuck the Details [Grey's Anatomy, George, Cristina, Izzie, Meredith, R, 821 words, January 2006]

Kirk, ensemble, Arthur, Rodney, Cameron, Dean, Sam and a giant squid, PG-13, 3,169 words, May 2009]
His life's a fucking space opera. And not even the erotic type that airs on New HBO. No, it's the animated comic type where the captain goes splat against the wall every episode and the pointy-eared bastard quirks his pointy eyebrow and steps on the captain's flattened remains.

Heart Me Baby [Harry Potter, Fred, George, G, 417 words, silliness, January 2006]
Dumbledore put an arm around each of them and pulled them into a huddle. Not what they were expecting: normally teachers just shouted at them the moment they saw them. McGonagall called it pre-something—pre-emption, that was it.

Dimensionally Challenged [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, NC-17, 4,752 words, humour, August 2005]
But this was Malfoy for Merlin's sake; surely no one could really expect him to deal with this. Except they did, which was yet more proof that the entire universe had it in for him. He almost longed for the days when half the wizarding world was trying to kill him outright.

(It's Impossible) To Catch Lightning [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, R, 1,174 words, February 2005]
He needs to remember one reason, just one, why Draco is a blot on his life.

Footprints in the Snow [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, R, humour, 1,681 words, November 2004]
It was a good thing Harry had a Slytherin to look out for him these days; Draco was distinctly proud of the fact that Harry broke more rules with Draco than he ever had with the weasel, yet he only got into trouble a fraction of the time. You just couldn't expect a Weasley to be properly devious—it wasn't in their heritage.

Underneath [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco/Squid, R, 464 words, October 2004]

Ten Thousand Forfeit Heartbeats [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, NC-17, post-Hogwarts, angst, romance, 3,000 words, September 2004]
There are oaths in the wizarding world, oaths that bind far more tightly than any muggle oath.

Say Hello Before You Say Goodbye [Harry Potter, Harry/hooker!Draco, NC-17, angst, future-fic, 1,712 words and link to collage, July 2004]

the inside of out [Life, Charlie, adult, 418 words, January 2008]
His sky, his air. Wide open space, and he tips back his head and looks up at the sky, clear and cloudless, the deep blue of distance. Everything's far away. He can hold his arms out wide and touch nothing.


MERLIN

A Bloody Good Adventure [Merlin (BBC), Merlin, Gwaine, G, 746 words, pre-slash, Dec 2010.]
It must be a knight thing, this glare. Arthur has it off pat, of course, and now Gwaine's got just the same look, though Merlin thinks it looks hotter on Gwaine. Maybe Arthur holds secret knight training sessions where they learn to glare at Merlin.

Kirk, ensemble, Arthur, Rodney, Cameron, Dean, Sam and a squid, PG-13, 3,169 words, May 2009.]

even medieval times had a top shelf [Merlin, Merlin/Arthur, PG-13/R, first-time, 1,104 words, December 2008]

Kirk, ensemble, Arthur, Rodney, Cameron, Dean, Sam and a squid, PG-13, 3,169 words, May 2009]
