It's not like it's any kind of big deal, stopping by the little dug-out desert home once in a while. )

Written For: [ profile] womenlovefest

A/N: Doomed timelines always need exploring, now don't they?

'COWARD!' you scream as a flicker of green dances away. 'COWARD, COWARD, COWAAAAAAAARD!' )

Title: taking turns holding this world
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Feferi, the Condesce [Troll Kids]
Ratings/Warnings: R, strong violence, fantastic racism
Written for: [ profile] womenlovefest
Wordcount: 1300
Author's Note: And thus commences a week of continuous postings, hopefully - two fics per day! They will mostly be a) in the same post, and b) shorter than this. Title from "Trust Me" by The Fray.

The Condesce arches an eyebrow like she doesn’t know she’s torn to rags, like she doesn’t know that she rules nothing anymore, and the worst part is that you’re not sure either of those things matters. )

A/N: Please, please, please let the coding work this time...

'Well, don’t you look a dreadful mess,' she observes, gliding along the cracked stinking concrete; he sheathes his sword with a showy little flick to his wrist that he never let the kid pick up. )

Title: And Quite a Story to Tell
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Dave/Jade, Rose, Kanaya, Karkat, Equius, Eridan [background Rose/Kanaya, Aradia/Equius]
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, discussions of sex, pesterlog-fic
Written for: [ profile] digi_dragon's request, for a really ill-advised meme I did on Tumblr
Wordcount: 3,000
A/N: For the record, this takes place several years after the events of canon. Also, given how frankly torturous LJ was the last time I tried to post anything, screw it, I'm not coloring the text. Unapologetic fluff, as a break from a number of depressing WIPs that I swear will see the light of day at some point.

Title: When All Else In You Turns and Runs
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Dave/Jade/Terezi
Ratings/Warnings: PG, swearing, implied PTSD
Written for: N/A
A/N: Title taken from Vienna Teng's "Love Turns 40."

You open your eyes, find Dave motionless and lips half-parted, Terezi leaned in with her head tilted slightly just the way she does when she doesn’t want to miss a single detail, and you lean in and kiss the Knight of Time as gently as you know how, with the Seer of Mind’s pulse thrumming against your palm. )

the things we write by accident

Title: Been a Long Cold Lonely Winter
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Equius/Aradia
Ratings/Warnings: R, sex, d/s elements, and the characters are underaged. (Not, however, thirteen.)
Written for: [ profile] teh_slush and [ profile] 1st_eggokage
Wordcount: ~8,500
A/N: 1) For those who are not in this fandom and simply reading for the porn: Trolls count age in sweeps. One sweep is about equal to two years and two months; therefore "seven for a while now" = almost sixteen. 2) This leans upon certain theories about troll sex; you can find the relevant sections detailed after the fic, or just proceed and roll with events. 3) Yes, the title is from "Here Comes the Sun."

This isn't exactly what either of them was expecting, but Equius certainly has no complaints, and won't as long as she keeps smiling. )

Title: outwaiting fate
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Rose Lalonde/Kanaya Maryam [Dave Strider, Jade Harley, John Egbert]
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13, general fucked-up-ness?
Written for: an attempt at song bingo for [ profile] ficcinintherain. That did not pan out. (The song was "Baobabs," by Regina Spektor.)
Wordcount: 950
A/N: Finally, my OTP. This is from a few days back, and isn't quite what I meant to accomplish, but it's something.

They stand and watch, and wait for a new universe to bloom to being. )

Title: Never Make Me Wonder
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Vriska Serket, John Egbert
Ratings/Warnings: PG, minor instances of ableist language
Written for: [ profile] ficcinintherain's August Challenge, for the prompt of Vriska and the song The Impression That I Get. (No, this isn't a songfic except in the very loosest sense of the term. Also, check out the fest!)
Wordcount: 1700
A/N: Set in the dreambubbles. Spoilers up through June 2011.

It's a strange kind of luck that's led Vriska here. )

Title: What Might Be Left to Say in Time Come After Death
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Dave Strider, Rose Lalonde, Bro Strider, Mrs. Lalonde, Feferi Peixes
Ratings/Warnings: PG, deals with (canonical) character deaths
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: ~3000
A/N:For future reference, this contains spoilers up to this update (update ends here.) It also functions as a sort of pre-emptive fixit, and its relationship to canon will probably become more complicated in the immediate future. Title comes from Allen Ginsberg's "Howl." Many thanks to lathyrism (of Tumblr) for beta'ing! 

Two people get the chance to correct variations on the same mistake. )

There were around four Homestuck fics I was consciously planning and this is not any of them.

Title: Four Months
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Rose Lalonde, Dave Strider
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13, implied violence
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: ~660
A/N: An exploration of the crapsack timeline and how much Rose remembers. I'm going with the assumption that she might not be able to narrate all the events but does remember specific moments.

Dave and Rose grew up together very fast indeed, and now suddenly he didn't. )

Blue Jean Serenade (Songs for Your World)

Title: Blue Jean Serenade (Songs for Your World)
Fandom: Doctor Who (Series 5)
Characters/Pairings: Amy/Rory, 11, Tardis
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, sexin'. (That wasn't supposed to happen.)
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: 5000
A/N: Songs listed at the bottom. Many thanks to [ profile] teh_slush for helping me minimize my mistakes with the musical details, and to a great many people for their encouragement. Somehow this drew in bits of backstory and episode codas for "The Vampires of Venice," "Amy's Choice," and the season finale.

There's more than one way, or two, or three, to tell someone you love them. Five songs Rory sang to Amy, and why. )

Characters/Pairings: Alice/Tarrant, sort of
Rating/Warnings: PG, Victorian concepts of 'madness'
Written for: [ profile] ficcinintherain, mix "When the Sun Shines."
Wordcount: 850
A/N: Title from an album by The Weakerthans; I don't actually have any idea what they sound like, but I know I got the title from somewhere and that's what comes up when I Google it. So.

It is certainly better than never having seen him again, at least. )

Meme swiped from [ profile] viorica8957 :

+ Pick one [or more!] of my icons.
+ I will (try my best to) write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon.
This would, I think, work better if I had more icons. If we share a fandom for which you have icons, use said icon and I might write something based on that as well?

Rating/Warnings: PG, allusions to assault, discussions of extreme poverty
Written for: N/A
Wordcount: ~600
A/N: This is, essentially, a story about privilege. As some of it is about the kinds I have (not quite to the degree portrayed, but sort of), please let me know if there's anything offensive here. I promise not to start a shitstorm.

A/N: ...well, this is a hell of a way to start on a new fandom. I don't even know, you guys. This is ridiculous crack (except it has bits that aren't.) AU wherein everyone lives and remains on the same side, and I do not apologize for that element, but I do apologize for everything else.

Charles's sympathy is slightly diminished by the fact that he is in a tree. )
