To Harp and To Russian!

I can't read Russian, but I still find this very cool. I wish I knew what people were saying in the comments. I see happy emoticons, so I doubt they're flames. :)

Fandom: Enchanted
Rating: PG
Ships: Canon ships, plus Edward/Giselle (but no infidelity)
Summary: Giselle returns to Andalasia after eleven years and finds Edward under a spell and in need of her help.
A/N: Written for Jade Sabre, for Yuletide 2008. 5,100 words. Many thanks to [ profile] krabapple and [ profile] heidi8 for beta reading. (Hee. There's a tiny plot hole we all missed. Just pretend it's not there, okay?) I think this is my favorite story that I wrote all year. It was certainly one of the most challenging.

( "Like I was saying," Pip said, after Edward locked them in the tower, "things haven't been so great here." )


To Harp and to Hold

Ship: Alemi/Elgion
Summary: Alemi is briefly torn between tradition and Harper Elgion.
A/N: And this one was for [ profile] gillianinoz, also for Yuletide 2008. 1,200 words. I'd just finished reading Dragonsong for the first time since I was thirteen, and was struck by - what I took to be - Elgion's obvious attraction to Alemi. I couldn't help wondering if it was reciprocated. Also, tent peg! I love you, Anne, but oh my god. *is evil*

( Shards, he thought. If we clung to every single tradition, Menolly would not now be at Harper Hall, and I wouldn't be camping on this beach tonight, fulfilling a boyhood dream. )

Rose Tyler, you are the bee's knees AND the cat's pajamas. )

Rating: Mature-ish
Ship: Starbuck/Anders (sort of)
Summary: But I Can't Be Pregnant!
A/N: The second of two late submissions for [ profile] penknife's TV Tropes Challenge. 490 words. Classes really need to start, because if this is the result of my idle brain... The truth is, this is the first scenario that came to mind when [ profile] penknife gave me my assignment. Some ideas are just so bad you've just got to use them. Sorry, Anders. Um. Mpreg. Kind of.

Sweet to tongue and sound to eye

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Faith/Buffy, Buffy/Cordelia
Rating: R / mature

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica
Rating: all ages
Characters/Ships: Gaeta and Dee, shipless
Summary: It's about frakking time.
A/N: Originally, I'd wanted to get the poor guy laid, since he's the only main character who doesn't appear to have any sort of sex life. But I couldn't think of a likely partner. Then I thought of something else he deserves. Anyway, this story is about 1,100 words and contains spoilers for the series through "Sine Qua Non."

Felix Gaeta lay in bed, drifting through hours that were sometimes dream-filled. )

If the Moon Should Fall from the Sky

Fandom: Buffyverse
Rating: all ages
Ship: Buffy/Xander
Summary: Dingdingding!
A/N: This is for [ profile] ariastar. The thing with B/X is, it requires a bit of explaining. But this kisslet is only 340 words in length. So! This is set post-series, no comics spoilers.

Fandom: 1776
Rating: er - mature
Ship: Tom/Martha (Jefferson)
Summary: So, when [ profile] kit_maxel requested a Tom/Martha kisslet, I knew she meant Martha Jones and Tom Milligan from Doctor Who. (And here is the kisslet I wrote for her.) But I couldn't stop thinking about the other Tom/Martha. 124 words.

Of course, as soon as he had her in his arms, the words came. )
thistlerose: (Martha)

Fandom: Doctor Who
Ship: Tom/Martha
