potentiality_26: (wild wild west)
Title: A Night's Work
Fandom: The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Artemus Gordon/Dean Richmond, James West
Summary: An evening well spent. Possibly.
Rating: R
Length: Short (1,097 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was written for the older_not_dead amnesty prompt "not as drunk as you think I am."  Super rare pairing.  Yay.
Excerpt: “You’d better get me out of here before I cause an international incident,” Artemus whispered in Colonel Richmond’s ear.

Privately, Richmond doubted it. Artemus was just drunk enough to begin to show it, but when he was in full form- as he was tonight- every always seemed to go his way. Still, if Artemus wanted to be carried out it was likely for some reason other than because he’d consumed enough alcohol to become foolish- two or three other reasons at once, probably, knowing Artemus.

potentiality_26: (doctor who)
Title: Brave New World
Fandom: Doctor Who/The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Amy Pond/Rory Williams, Artemus Gordon/James West, Eleven, Jack Harkness; mentions of Lily Fortune (and Artie/Lily)
Summary: Artie was a companion of the Doctor.  Jim is trying to figure some things out.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (6,932 words)
Disclaimer: Doctor Who and The Wild Wild West do not belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This includes mentions of M-preg.  You can read my somewhat tangential placement of this story in DW canon here.
Excerpt: “I did want to… warn you, I suppose. It’s just that, ‘Jim, I won’t technically be born for a couple thousand years,’ is really difficult to work into a conversation. Also, I only half believed that he’d ever come back for me.”

potentiality_26: (wild wild west)
Title: Takeout Christmas
Fandom: The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Artemus Gordon/James West, Haruko Ishuda, Jeremy Pike, Lily Fortune, Miguelito Loveless
Summary: Modern Day AU: Jim and Artie are next door neighbors.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5,101 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: In case it isn't information you keep in your head, Haruko Ishuda is the Japanese secret service agent from "The Night of the Deadly Blossom."  I love her, okay?
Excerpt: Artie had turned out to be a phenomenal cook, so it had been easy for Jim to say that he was happy to go to Artie’s place for dinner whenever he wasn’t too busy, or otherwise engaged. It had even been fairly easy to pretend that he wouldn’t have said the exact same thing if Artie had turned out to be a terrible cook.

Rating: G

Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.

potentiality_26: (wild wild west)
Title: Silk Roses
Fandom: The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Artemus Gordon/James West
Summary: After 'The Night of the Running Death,' coin tosses are won and lost, Artie puts away a persona, and Jim puts on a dress.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (14,985 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: In case you don't know 'The Night of the Running Death' off the top of your head, it's the one where Jim and Artie are part of a wagon train headed to Denver and trying to figure out which of their traveling companions is an assassin. In it, Artie pretends to be a very swish actor named Kingston and insists up and down that he can pick someone in a wig and makeup out in any crowd- despite the fact that the middle-aged British woman in their midst is actually the man they're looking for. This started out as my effort to reconcile myself with that, and it sort of went its own way from there. The episode also has an odd sort of double ending. This story is set around the first part of said ending and before the second. For a 15,000+ word story, it really is pretty low on plot. Apologies.
Excerpt: At this point, Jim should have anticipated that things would go wrong as matter of course the moment he took the decision to bait Artie about Ms. Tyler, but sometimes his reason took a long time to catch up with the rest of him.

Title: Future Tense
Fandom: The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Artemus Gordon/James West
Summary: The past fights change, and people aren't very good at learning from it.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long (18,245 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: Includes major character death, dub-con, the end of the world, an unhappy ending, references to suicide and self harm, and just loads of not nice things.  1) I don't read a lot of darkfic, so I have no idea where on any potential scale this fic rests. but as you can see I have warned the hell out of it, and if you read said warnings and find yourself at all disinclined to read it, don't read it.  I'm not altogether happy with it, and now that it's gone I'm going to work on a something nicer.  2) When I first started this fic (way too long ago), I was reading Stephan King's 11/22/63. Originally, it was my intention to use similar rules of time travel, but in the end this story just went its own way. Still, I think the novel informed it somewhat.
Excerpt: Artie didn’t think he should understand what his partner was saying, at least not right away. He should be fighting it for all he was worth, but he wasn’t. It seemed like he’d been wrestling with this truth for an age and it had finally slotted into place.

potentiality_26: (wild wild west)
Title: Sleeping Patterns
Fandom: The Wild Wild West
Pairing/Characters: Artemus Gordon/James West, Miguelito Loveless
Summary: There's something wrong with Jim. Can Artie figure out what before things get even worse?
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long (17,442 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: This includes the old ‘character thinks he’s dreaming’ trope, which in my opinion comes with a measure of dub-con, but it’s only kissing. If anyone has a suggestion for how I should tag/warn for that or if I need to, let me know.
Excerpt: Like many men who had been soldiers for at least half as long as they’d been alive, Jim thought of asking for help as weakness.

Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,650 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: Feedback remains wonderful.
Excerpt: There had been enough close calls over the years that Artie hadn’t always been sure there would be a rest of his life. But it seemed there would be, and as for plans- well, he hadn’t made them.

Fandom: The Wild Wild West

Summary: Little is more inconvenient than final words that turn out not to be so final.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (2,337 words)
Disclaimer: The Wild Wild West belongs to CBS and a lot of people who aren't me.
Notes/Warnings: The slash here is fairly light, but still present.  Don't like, don't read.  Comments are love!
Excerpt: As if by tacit agreement, they’d never spoken of it until Jim had just now. Unaccustomed to being the first to break any silence, Jim hadn’t the first idea what this could mean for them.
