thistlerose: (Plantagenets are twisted love)
My [ profile] yuletide 2007 fics, let me show you them:

Nobody's Good Son

Fandom: The Lion in Winter
Rating: PG-ish
Summary: The Christmas court was kind of a bust. Geoffrey Plantagenet plans his next move.
Notes: This was for [ profile] sharpeslass and it was my assignment. After receiving it, I went straight to [ profile] themis, who proved to be the very best sort of beta reader. She deserves many, many thanks, as do the members of [ profile] plantagenesta, who pointed me to Google Books and The Charters of Constance Duchess of Brittany. I was a little nervous about introducing Constance, but I came to like her a lot, and the reaction to her has been overwhelmingly positive.

( "I'm nothing like Richard. I believe in knives in the dark and broken promises. Christ, there's little else I believe in. Don't you know that by now?" )


Where the Air is Clear

Fandom: Mary Poppins (movie)
Rating: PG
Summary: Mary and Bert, thirty years later.
Notes: First of all, thank you to my beta readers, [ profile] penknife and [ profile] midnitemaraud_r! This one was my pinch hit, written for [ profile] sotto_voice, and OMG you guys! I loved the plot when I came up with it, but I wrote it very quickly and I was pretty nervous. This movie is so dear to me and I really wanted to do it justice. I don't know that I have, but - guh, I'm happy with this story.

( "I told you not to stay away too long." )


The Time That Thou Has Lost and Spent

Fandom: The Lymond Chronicles
Rating: PG
Summary: Kate Somerville and Adam Blacklock, after Lymond's homecoming.
A/N: And this was the treat I wrote for [ profile] elishavah. It's approximately 600 words, set during the last chapter of Checkmate. This ship was hinted at pretty strongly in the last few pages of the series, and it made me squeeful because Kate = awesome, and Adam = deserving of awesome after all he's been through. So I was happy to have an excuse to write it.

( I would have given you my heart in a blackberry pie, she thought a little sadly. I give you my daughter. It's the same thing, more or less. )
thistlerose: (Mary Poppins: Mary/Bert OTP!)
Where the Air is Clear

Fandom: Mary Poppins (movie)
Rating: all ages
Summary: Mary and Bert, thirty years later.
Notes: Thank you to my beta readers, [ profile] penknife and [ profile] midnitemaraud_r! This was written for [ profile] sotto_voice for Yuletide 2007. 1,270 words. Originally posted here.

The Time That Thou Has Lost and Spent

Fandom: The Lymond Chronicles
Rating: all ages
Ship: Kate Somerville/Adam Blacklock
Summary: Kate and Adam, after Lymond's homecoming.
A/N: Written for [ profile] elishavah as a Yuletide 2007 treat. It's approximately 600 words, set during the last chapter of Checkmate. This ship was hinted at pretty strongly in the last few pages of the series, and it made me squeeful because Kate = awesome, and Adam = deserving of awesome after all he's been through. So I was happy to have an excuse to write it. Originally posted here.

Kuzum came running over the grass, his hair bright as Lymond's in the November sunlight... )

Tuesday night, I had a key lime martini and posted some smut. This is just the link to the ficlet at [ profile] erotic_elves. The community is locked at the moment, but anyone of legal age can join. See the userinfo.

For Her Pleasure

Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: NC-17
Ship: Angelina/Fred/Lee/George
Summary: Oh captain, my captain.
Notes: Yes, it's group sex. 340 words. Written for [ profile] erotic_elves's October flash fiction challenge. Like I said, the link goes to the comm.

( For Her Pleasure )
thistlerose: (Faith)
An Episode of Blonde

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: R-ish, for language
Ships: references to Buffy/Riley and Buffy/Angel
Summary: Little sis is going to be a problem, thinks Faith.
A/N: This is my contribution to [ profile] dawn_all_along, and it's a takeoff on "Who Are You?" from S4. I figure that Faith has enough screws loose to at least recognize that Dawn isn't what she seems. The title is from a song by Elvis Costello (as was "This Year's Girl"). Approx. 1,400 words. Many, many thanks to [ profile] r_becca for beta reading!

( Little sis is going to be a problem. )
thistlerose: (darkness)

Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: PG
Ship: Remus/Tonks (though I wouldn't call this romantic)
Summary: She still has places to go, people to see.
A/N: I hadn't planned on writing this. I suppose it comes out of some of the comments I've been seeing about Tonks's absence from a certain scene toward the end of Deathly Hallows. Again, I wouldn't call it shippy, though it's canon-compliant. (Which means big spoilers.) Approx. 650 words.

'There's no sense in worrying about it now. What's done is done.' )
thistlerose: (forget-me-nots)
For Luck, For Laughs, For the Unknown

Fandom: Harry Potter
Ship: Ted/Andromeda
Rating: NC-17
Warning: spoilers for Deathly Hallows.
Summary: If she tried, she might be able to keep him here just a little longer. Hands were more convincing than words, sometimes, and a tongue—
A/N: 1,130 words. Written for [ profile] erotic_elves's Canon Pairings Challenge, and posted here (locked) originally.

Ted was halfway out the door... )
thistlerose: (written)
I saw a meme the other day that had people posting their works in progress. My one WiP is only one sentence long at present ("She was seventeen years old, and out long past curfew," if anyone's curious) so here are three fics that I started and don't intend to finish.

Feedback still = ♥

Long Legs and Gorgeous Hair

Fandoms: Firefly & Harry Potter
Rating: PG-13
Ships: none, but would have been Sirius/Zoe, with Zoe/Wash and Sirius/Remus (post-Serenity, post-OotP)
Notes: Sirius falls through the Veil and reappears five hundred years in the future, on a planet that is not Earth. He's determined to find his way back to Earth and the Veil - providing it still exists. Unfortunately, Earth is currently populated by radioactive zombies, there are pirates after him, and he just met this really hot woman.

Sirius Black preferred cock, but even he couldn't help staring when she strode into the bar. )

Dawn's Pony

Fandom: Buffy
Rating: PG
Ships: none
Notes: I honestly don't remember why I started writing this, but it was meant to take place between seasons Seven and Eight. I like Dawn here, but I didn't know where I wanted the story to go. Also, the kelpie started sounding like Spike in my head, and I didn't want that.

He was the most beautiful pony that Dawn had ever seen. )

Unicorn Dreams

Fandom: King's Quest
Rating: PG-13
Ships: none, although I can see it going Alexander/Rosella and that's one of the reasons I gave up because NO
Notes: I can't believe I wrote 3,000 words of a King's Quest story. I started after rediscovering the games this spring, and finding that had no KQ stories. (I don't know if it does now.) I had to remedy that. Only, I didn't. I kind of wrote myself into a corner here; Alexander is right to refuse to help, and Rosella isn't stupid enough to look elsewhere. Anyway, this begins very shortly after King's Quest 4.

It wasn't long after her return from Tamir that Princess Rosella began to dream about unicorns. )
thistlerose: (Sirius)
I've updating "The Ballad of Azkaban" by Sirius Black. I think it's done now, mostly because I can't think up any more stanzas.

Set to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun."

Now with some dirty language and spoilers for Deathly Hallows. Sirius/Remus.

There is a prison way up north )
thistlerose: (Ron/Hermione!)
The House-Elf Liberation Full Frontal

Fandom: Harry Potter
Ship: Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Is this the moment? Fuck, yeah!
A/N: This isn't 100% canon-compliant, but it's what I wanted to happen immediately following The Snog. It bugged me that after Ron's Awesome Suggestion, no one actually went to free the house-elves. This is about 1,000 words.

There wasn't time for this. You-Know-Who was coming and Harry needed them back. )
thistlerose: (Mal)
A Dwindling Pool of Light

Fandom: Firefly
Rating: same as the show
Ships: allusions for former Mal/River and possibly future Mal/Zoe
Summary: Many years in the future, Mal still observes Unification Day his own way.
A/N: Many thanks for [ profile] elspethsheir for the quick beta read! This is about 1,500 words. The title is from a quotation by Joseph Featherstone.

Over the course of his life, Malcolm Reynolds has found himself on the wrong side of many a cell door. From the Rim's crude metal boxes to the austere Core prisons, he reckons he's seen them all, could probably write a book if someone offered him enough platinum for it. )

My Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom is:
Hermione Granger is killed by the zombie Albus Dumbledore after fleeing an angry horde of barbarians
Get your Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get your own Spoiler of Doom and write the story. Make it as long or short as you like. And post it here, as a comment.

Have fun!

ETA: So far, we've had Harry impregnated by himself, Moaning Myrtle turned into ice cream, zombie!Dumbledore killing Hermione, and Voldemort turning into a giant hamster.
thistlerose: (Captain Jack)
How Many Secret Organizations Have We Got Here, Anyway?

Fandoms: Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Torchwood
Rating: PG
Summary: How Jack met Buffy.
A/N: Approx. 460 words. Takes S8 of BtVS into account, but it's not at all necessary. Not shippy...yet. This could spawn something longer and more complicated, where they both deal with death and resurrection. We'll see.

The last thing Jack remembers is the vampire sucking on his punctured carotid artery. Now he's lying on his back in the middle of the darkened parking lot, and there's this skinny blonde girl bent over him. )
thistlerose: (Weasleys are Love)
Don't Need No Credit Card To Ride This Train

Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: PG-13
Ships: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione
Summary: Some things are better than money or fame. Much better.
A/N: For [ profile] catchmysnitch's June/July challenge, brooms. This started out as a sweet bunny, which quickly became a banter-fest. According to the ever-so-reliable Wikipedia, the Karakondjul is a Bulgarian boogeyman who's sometimes evil, sometimes just sort of tricky. Points to anyone who recognizes five of the seven Scottish Quidditch players. Approx. 900 words.

( "It's not like I have a choice. Not if I want to get laid ever again." )
thistlerose: (BtVS: Giles)
And Away We Go

Rating: PG
Ships: brief allusions to canon ships, but mostly Just Giles.
Summary: "Is it weird," Xander asks, "having your roles reversed? Being the one Watcher in all the world – amid hundreds of Slayers?"
A/N: Many, many thanks to [ profile] r_becca for 1. convincing me to sign up for [ profile] summer_of_giles and 2. beta reading this story. It's about 2,000 words, set a couple of weeks after "Chosen." I was thinking about Season 8 as I wrote this, but you totally don't need to have read any of it.

( "Extremely." )
thistlerose: (nyc: seasonal)
For a couple of lame reasons, I've been hesitant to post this. But one person expressed an interest, so here it is.


Fandom: Sex and the City
Rating: PG
Summary: Five years after the end of the series, Charlotte and her adopted daughter, Shanna, bump into Bunny MacDougal. Approx. 650 words.

Harry would say something good and stinging. So would Carrie, Miranda, or Samantha. Charlotte is different. )
thistlerose: (Doctor Who)
Tyler & Tyler

Fandoms: Queer as Folk UK / Doctor Who
Rating: PG
Characters/Ships: Jackie Tyler and Hazel Tyler
Summary: Hazel believes a young friend has gotten into some trouble in London. Naturally, when she goes to investigate, she drags her cousin Jackie along.
A/N: Many thanks to [ profile] just_ruth for looking this over. It's about 1,600 words. Set sometime after the end of QaF, early in David Tennant's stint as the Doctor. Posted to [ profile] loveforthefolks.

"When we're done with the breaking and entering, you're going to have to tell me all about this doctor your Rose has run off with."
thistlerose: (BtVS: Buffy)
Wake Up Slow (Second Time Around Remix)

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: PG
Ship: Xander/Buffy
Summary: "When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
A/N: Written for [ profile] remix_redux '07. The original fic is Two Words by [ profile] liz_marcs. My assignment filled me with glee. I'd never heard of Liz, but we seem to love the same characters for the same reasons, which is awesome. Many thanks to [ profile] musesfool for the kick-ass assignment and for running the whole thing. Many thanks to [ profile] krabapple, my lovely proofreader. This is about 5,300 words. It's set post-series and it's AU in that the First is stopped without Sunnydale being destroyed.

( Buffy's awake and alert enough to tease. )
thistlerose: (Eilonwy)
Wedding Night

Fandom: Prydain
Rating: PG
Ship: Taran/Eilonwy
Summary: He's perfectly willing to be romantic, if only she'll let him get a word in edgewise.
A/N: I included this ship in the list I made yesterday, and it got me thinking. Their love is so obvious, but we so rarely get them alone together. This is set very shortly after the end of The High King, and contains many spoilers and a little romance. Approx. 1,500 words.

Taran wondered if he was being rebuked. It was hard to tell. )
