Title: Thicker Than Blood
Fandoms: Inception, Ouran High School Host Club
Characters/Pairings: Saito, the Hosts
Ratings/Warnings: PG, one of those '[character] and [character] are the same person' fics
Written for: [ profile] crossovers_las, prompt 'blood relations
Wordcount: ~800
A/N: This is the result of forgetting the deadline and being absolutely without the slightest idea of what to write. This should explain the strangeness of the fusion, a bit.

Saito's family - his real family, not his brothers, not his father - are the ones who keep him company through Limbo. )

Title: At Least the War is Over
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Characters/Pairings: Azula/Ty Lee, background canon pairings
Ratings/Warnings: PG, minor violence
Written for: this commentfest, prompt 'three times Ty Lee almost visits Azula and the one time she does.'
Word Count: 1100
A/N: Well, this wasn't how I intended to spend that evening. Title from "In Our Bedroom After the War," by Stars.

Sometimes we leave people because we're afraid of what they've become. Some people are hard to leave no matter what they come to be. )
sour_idealist: (Brick | smoke-eyed and burning)

Title: Men Do Not Sham Convulsion
Fandom: Brick
Characters/Pairings: Brendan/Laura
Ratings/Warnings: R, sex, less-than-soothing descriptions of injury. [Sex is between characters in their late teens but of otherwise ambiguous age; I'm proceeding under the assumption that they're 18.]
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: 2000
A/N: Thanks for betaing, Laura! ([ profile] viorica8957 - the name is a coincidence, as far as I know.) Also, I'm now responsible for almost a third of this fandom's section on the AO3, which is... awkward. Title courtesy Emily Dickinson; the lines quoted are from the same poem.

Sometimes these things happen, in a few hours in someone else's bedroom when everyone's on the edge of cracking - or maybe cracked already - and stupid impulses take over. None of it really matters. )

Two things. One: in the Internet equivalent of deciding I need a haircut, I have mucked merrily about with... almost everything about my LJ, actually. Apologies to anyone who clicked by while it was in the WHAT THE HELL WHERE IS MY TEXT phase of the project. Two, I am actually unveiling a bit of fic that hasn't been posted here before! (It's from the most recent round of [ profile] crossovers_las.)

Title: Festering
Fandoms:  Inception, Never Let Me Go (bookverse)
Characters/Pairings: Arthur, Eames
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, swearing, minor violence, MAJOR SPOILERS for Never Let Me Go.
Written for: crossovers_las, prompt "[character] gets lost."
Wordcount: 1500. (The  LAS version was cut to high hell.)
A/N: Well, this was interesting enough in the writing, at least.

Arthur lives his life digging out secrets. Statistically speaking, he's going to learn a few things he regrets. )
sour_idealist: (Brick | smoke-eyed and burning)
Title: dancing for the desperate and the brokenhearted
Fandom: Brick (why does Yuletide only happen once per year? We need a Junetide.)
Characters/Pairings: Brendan Frye/Laura Dannon
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13, discussions of violence, spoilers
Written for: [ profile] viorica8957, prompt "so testostorone boys and harlequin girls/will you dance to this beat and hold a lover close?"
Wordcount: just under 1,000. This was supposed to be a drabble.
A/N: Ah, what the hey, reposting this now. I've thought about expanding it to include an actual dance scene, but it really doesn't feel necessary, hot as it might be to contemplate.

The thing about knowing that nobody rides into the sunrise is that it doesn't mean that you know you'll see each other again. Damn surprises. )

Title: how far the story goes
Fandom: Tortall Universe
Characters/Pairings: Kel, OCs
Rating/Warnings: G, futurefic
Written for: [ profile] dropsofviolet at the drabble prompt post. (Still open, because why not.)
Wordcount: ~450
A/N: I'm going to be posting these up here properly day by day, because I am obsessed with organization. Carry on in peace.

The First Company of the King's Own stopping by your village, of all places. )

Title: she won't confess
Fandom: Brick
Characters/Pairings: Kara [mentions of Brendan, Brendan/Kara, and Kara/OMC].
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, sex, drugs. (No rock'n'roll though.)
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: 300 and change

Challenges, victories, people: things she knows her way around. )
sour_idealist: (Lagoon | rage and frustration)

Title: Brutal Temperatures [the extremes and deadly ladies remix]
Fandom: Black Lagoon
Characters/Pairings: Balalaika/Dutch
Rating/Warnings: R, sex, violence, BDSM [how the hell that happened I will never know]
Written for: Remix Madness 2011, remixing Cold to Hot by Lady_Ganesh.
Wordcount: ~500
A/N: I guess it's true that you write things during remix that you never would have written otherwise. If there are any truly glaring errors, please let me know.

The effect that Balalaika has on Dutch is unusual, to say the least. )
sour_idealist: (Brick | lost in the water)
Title: bittersweet [the fruits and moonlight children remix]
Fandom: Hamlet & A Midsummer Night's Dream
Characters/Pairings: Ophelia/Titania, implied Hamlet/Ophelia
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13, sex
Written for: Remix Madness 2011, remixing our moonlight revels by littledust
Wordcount: ~600
A/N: Surprisingly fun, as odd as the premise is.

Ophelia finds her way to the beds of royalty, carrying sorrow and memories with her. )

Title: looms and anvils [the pretty boys and pirates remix]
Fandom: Pirates of the Caribbean
Characters/Pairings: Will/Elizabeth
Rating/Warnings: PG, spoilers. Also, suicide, but the context makes it a lot less uncomfortable than it would otherwise be.
Written for: Remix Madness 2011, remixing Five Things That Never Happened to Elizabeth Swann by [ profile] soda_and_capes.
Wordcount: 3000 [not the plan]
Author's Notes: This is, technically, only a remix of one fifth of the fic in question. I apologize for this fact. If memory serves me, I did come up with the idea for the resolution to this (in terms of Elizabeth) after seeing At World's End; nonetheless, this might not have taken the same form if fahye's turn your sail (never say we die) had not been my headcanon for some time now. I probably don't need to cite it at this point, but the title derived from one borrowed from the lyrics of "Hey Lady" by Thriving Ivory.


He waits for her, of course. )

Title: Five Sharp Points [The Healing Remix]
Fandom: Firefly
Characters/Pairings: River, Simon, Inara, Mal, Jayne, Kaylee, Zoe
Rating/Warnings: G, none
Written for: Remix_Redux_9, remixing [ profile] spiralleds's fic If I Could Will You Whole.
Wordcount: 1200
A/N: Evidently this is not as bad as I thought.

Healing is a matter of bits and pieces. )

Title: ancient lying underneath [the weak as iron remix]
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Characters/Pairings: Mycroft, Sherlock, John
Rating/Warnings: G, somewhat dependent on the original
Written For: Remix Madness 2011, for SarahT's eerie, beautiful (however improbable). I advise reading that first.
Wordcount: 946
A/N: This was rushed, but I actually really love how it came out. I'll be crossposting my other remixes as I go; they're all here.

When it comes to the Holmes men, John Watson has a habit of being the exception. )

Title: Next Time I'll Write In Pencil
Fandom: Black Swan
Characters/Pairings: Nina/Lily
Rating/Warnings: G, spoilers
Wordcount: 670
A/N: Not sure how I feel about this one, but hey. No, I didn't just finish it.
She has a feeling this should be simpler than it's turning out to be. )
sour_idealist: (Default)
Title: Drift
Fandom: The Chronicles of Narnia, specifically TLB
Characters/Pairings: Susan
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, canonical character death
Written for: [ profile] book_las , prompt 'blurred lines.'
Wordcount: ~300
A/N: Evidently this does not suck? (I've, again, tweaked it slightly from the posted version; I'm not sure whether that was a good call or not.)
Susan never meant to turn her back on anything. )
sour_idealist: (Default)
Title: The Kids Aren't All Right
Fandom: The Traitor Game
Characters/Pairings: Michael, Michael's Mum
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, swearing, bullying, spoilers, brief allusions to suicide
Written for: [ profile] book_las prompt "Access Denied." (I interpreted it as Michael closing himself off.)
Wordcount: 438
A/N: I did say I was going to write more about Michael and his poor unnamed mum sometime.

She thinks that she should have known his independence would lead to trouble. )
sour_idealist: (Default)
Title: Swine and Forests
Fandoms: Howl's Moving Castle/Enchanted Forest Chronicles
Characters/Pairings: Howl, Sophie, Calcifer, Cimorene [Howl/Sophie, discussed Cimorene/Mendanbar]
Rating/Warnings: G, none
Written for: [ profile] crossovers_las
Wordcount: 1200
A/N: Expanded slightly from the LAS version, which had to be trimmed to fit the minimum wordcount. Also, these canons are a wonderfully fun combination. Edit: Apologies to those who had to deal with the full version of this clogging their f-lists.

In Which Sophie Intimidates a Forest and Howl is Not Melted )

Title: Foolishness, If Not Fancy
Fandom: Queen's Thief
Characters/Pairings: Eugenides/Attolia
Rating/Warnings: G, none whatsoever.
Written for: [ profile] book_las 
Wordcount: 780
A/N: Crossposting several things today; I'm going to forward-date the next couple of fics by a couple hours in hopes of not spamming too egregiously. In regards to this story, these characters are hard.

Eugenides steals peace for more than one queen. )

Title: You've Seen How I Live
Fandom: Inception
Characters/Pairings: Ms. Eames/Abby, Mal Cobb, Dom Cobb, OCs [Genderbent!Eames, Genderbent!Arthur]
Rating/Warnings: R, sex, violence, swearing, references to past drug abuse, withdrawal, and prostitution, out-of-pairing domestic abuse (between OCs). NSFW art behind the cut.
Written for: [ profile] i_reversebang, for [ profile] ap421's prompt. NSFW.
Word Count: 17,500 total
A/N: So, here we are. This has taken a lot of work, but I'm actually pretty damn proud of it. Title comes from Vienna Teng's "Eric's Song," which is thematically (if not tonally) perfect for this. Infinite, infinite thanks to [ profile] ap421 for being so wonderful and for all of the incredible extra art that she drew; to [ profile] heith_30, the other artist for this piece, for letting me flail at her and for her encouragement, and most of all to [ profile] fae_boleyn, for again playing the last-minute beta and hero of the hour.

Most people know Eames and Abby as two of the best in the profession, male or female, but when they met they were two of a very few women in the business. Truth be told, they still are. Everything else changes, and between the deaths and the hard-won expertise a history builds up, with trust accumulating like unexpected dust. )

Part II
sour_idealist: (Brick | lost in the water)
Title:  What If I'm A World Unturning
Fandom: Brick
Characters/Pairings: Emily Kostich, Brendan Frye, the Brain [Emily/Brendan]
Ratings/Warning: G, references to canonical character death
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: 1000
A/N: First of (I hope!) a number of Brick-related fics. (Nonexistent fandoms forever!) Truly, though, I have a ton of feelings about the ladies in this movie. Title swiped from Emilie Autumn's "What If."

She isn’t sure whether the teacher is more surprised that she has thoughts on symbolism or that she knows anything about chess, but she does. Brendan taught her. )

I did finish the first draft of my monster-fic, which will be up tomorr... later today. In the process of procrastinating it, I also wrote a lot of other things, including some Sucker Punch meta and the following Inception drabble.

Title: Those You've Known
Fandom: Inception
Characters/Pairings: Implied Ariadne/Arthur/Eames, Cobb
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, character death, suicide
Wordcount: 100
Written for: The day's quota of bad time management
Author's notes: ...The header is sort of a reflex, okay? Title shamelessly pilfered from a Spring Awakening song; cut text shamelessly stolen from a Les Miserables song. The actual drabble has no relation to Broadway whatsoever.

Oh my friends, my friends, forgive me/That I live and you are gone. )
