Title: The Spare
Rating: PG
Series: Fallout New Vegas ('courier faction' original characters)
Wordcount: 1128
Remarks: This was mostly an exercise in getting a handle on a new character (back in '14), for which I borrowed Wyn and Bryn from other members of the writing group. First impressions are so important.

Series: Fallout New Vegas ('courier faction' original characters)
Wordcount: 1385
Remarks: Context - a number of us from a tumblr fandom group ended up playing Fallout: New Vegas around the same time and liveblogging the experience. One day, I posited the idea of our couriers all meeting in some alternate universe, another individual said the words "courier faction", and things proceeded to spiral out of control in all the best ways. As such, the only character I own in any way is Larkin; the rest belong to the other assorted participants. (I will note that the reason Larkin has a twin is another individual and I started playing the game independently within a fortnight of each other, and on top of that managed to choose very similar designs. We decided this was the next logical step.) It's terribly dorky but also a lot of fun.

Title: Typology
Rating: G
Genre: Urban fantasy
Wordcount: 815
Remarks: Omen and Rebecca are mine; Delilah is Quixote's, though I like to think I can claim some responsibility seeing as she's Jester's sprog. Femslash February's just around the corner, so here's an old bit of rampant fluff to celebrate.

Title: Post-Script
Rating: PG 13+
Series: Red Vs Blue (Carolina, Epsilon)
Wordcount: 1160
Warnings: Some language, big spoilers through to the end of season ten.
Summary: "Epsilon and Carolina - how did he tell her that CT was the one who had warned Tex?"
Remarks: Promptfic via Roostertumblr. It was my first go writing Carolina, and ultimately it turned out much better than I'd expected. I didn't expect to enjoy creeping into her head so much!

Warnings: Some language, spoilers through to the end of season eight.
Summary: "We kind of call the new guy Church."
Remarks: Still hopelessly attached to this fandom. This time I took a one-off joke from season ten, combined it with a running gag, and somehow got minor angst involved. Tada!

Genre: Guess we're going with urban fantasy
Wordcount: 668
Warnings: Sort of both post- and pre-smut. Far from graphic.
Remarks: Jester is mine; Pyre is Quixote's.

Series: His Dark Materials / According to Plan
Wordcount: 1563
Warnings: Totally lacking in accurate knowledge of American colonial history?
Summary: In which Andrew is a perpetual hitchhiker.
Remarks: I recently re-read - in fact just finished re-reading as of this morning - Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, and it gave me a bee in my bonnet that ended with me turning to my favourite cast of characters for gratuitous crossovers. Not quite completed, but not likely to get any more so. Andrew/Jester is mine; Nigel/Secateur is Quixote's. The dæmons are a kittiwake and an addax.

Wordcount: 3709
Warnings: Some language, spoilers through to the end of season six.
Summary: In the moments after the EMP goes off, Wash faces an unexpected choice.
Remarks: This is the longest thing I have ever completed and it's machinima fanfiction in which very little happens asdfjghjhk the extent to which my brain is terrible cannot be defined.

Rating: PG
Genre: Urban fantasy?
Wordcount: 329
Remarks: You know that moment where you write something riddled with cliches and melodrama but you're so damn pleased to have broken through an extensive block that you can't help but feel proud of it anyway? Yeah. Andrew/Jester is mine (and, yes, of a kin with coffeehouse Andrew; this is technically his first and truest 'canon'). Pyre is Quixote's (and most definitely not of a kin with Patience ahah oh god).

andrew's first kiss is warmth in the wet )

Title: Ten Steps
Rating: PG 13+
Series: Red Vs Blue (Washington, Tucker, Caboose, Doc, the Reds)
Wordcount: 2129
Warnings: Some language, great big spoilers through to the end of season eight.
Summary: It takes a little while to get used to being in a team.
Remarks: Set between seasons eight and nine. Wrote this a little while back and it turns out I still rather like it, so there you go. RvB punches my inspiration buttons in the weirdest ways considering that it started as a cynical comical machinima and is actually still that quite a lot. Also I am the straight-up worst at titles sometimes jeebers.

Genre: Modern
Wordcount: 329
Summary: A moment of downtime.
Remarks: [community profile] originalfic100 prompt - hula hoop. Somehow I managed to write 329 words in which absolutely nothing happens, but on the other hand I managed to write! It's also Luke's first placing on paper. I suppose in some distant future it could be a bridging bit, or the beginning of a deeper scene, but for now you get Phys Ed, Alex's awkwardface, and no plot.

Title: Discord
Rating: PG 13+
Genre: Modern/mafia-esque?
Wordcount: 1012
Warnings: Physical violence.
Summary: Even the most efficient team can suffer miscommunication.
Remarks: I first wrote this back in late 2009, intending it to be a fanfiction AU. By the time I finished, however, it was so divorced from even the vaguest feel of the series that it hardly seemed worth labelling it such, so after a while I shrugged, wiped out the few obligatory references, and ended up with this. (As a friend would put it, 'damn uppity characters'.) It remains one of my most favoured pieces, despite several responses suggesting it's all but incomprehensible >>
