Title: East of the Sun and West of the Moon
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Of fairy tales and happy endings.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5053 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I wanted to give this fic a more generic fairy tale title, but this was the one it wanted. Also, I have no idea how old Eggsy's sister is supposed to be at the end of the movie, so I may be taking serious liberties with her maturity level in this fic. Call it an AU?  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Eggsy thought that if in the story the good fairy told the princess-who-wasn't-always-a-princess that she could have the fine house and the steady income from the awesome job, but she couldn’t have him because he got himself shot in fucking Kentucky, no one would like it very much.

Eggsy could walk the world with no shoes on a thousand times over and it wouldn’t bring Harry back, because fairy tales weren’t real.

Title: On Lateness
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Gazelle/Roxy Morton, Richmond Valentine
Summary: An unexpected encounter on campus.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,760 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: An unusual pair for me but I like to branch out from time to time. This is based on an American (and also outdated) university experience and I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about TAs (only one of my profs ever had one), so apologies in advance for any mistakes there.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Gazelle blinked at her. “You remember me?” She sounded surprised, in that I-try-very-hard-not-to-take-anything-too-seriously way Roxy remembered her having.

Of course she remembered. Gazelle always sat at the back of the classroom, the seat beside her always empty, and she would prop her legs up on it and survey the room through the curtain of her hair in a listless fashion that did little to disguise how smart she was and how much she really did care about getting an education. Her legs were bright and knife sharp, like her smile and her eyes and her tongue- when Roxy coaxed her into speaking during class, that was. Gazelle was very hard to forget indeed.

Title: So Fair a Gift
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Roxy Morton
Summary: Eggsy is getting a little tired of waiting for a certain someone to introduce himself.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,675 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This is a short AU I wrote a while ago and then forgot about. It's (loosely) based on a prompt from this post: “I am a ballet dancer and I see you every time I perform in the first row and there are flowers in my room every time I perform when will you finally introduce yourself” AU. I've done a lot of theater but very little dance, so I may be making some incorrect assumptions. The title is from, "Your soul is a beautiful thing, child. No emperor received so fair a gift. The angels wept to-night” from Phantom of the Opera, because of course I went there.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: It had been a couple of weeks- all right, three weeks and a day- since Eggsy saw the man first. Eggsy didn’t often look at the audience- it was distracting and unprofessional- but on that particular night Eggsy just happened to glance over and there he was, sitting in the front row with this incredibly intense look on his face. He was well fit, wearing a tuxedo that hugged his broad shoulders and surprisingly slim waist just as tightly as Eggsy would rather like to, with faintly greying hair and these dark, dark eyes.

Title: Until I Saw Your Face
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Harry just needs somewhere to lay low and patch himself up. He isn't expecting to meet someone who fascinates him, or to run into that someone again and again.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Very Long (103,322 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Prostitution, canon-typical violence, minor character death, light dom/sub and bondage (this fic is not at all as a kinky as that makes it sound); written as an H/C bingo straight line extra for "disappearing", "secret allies", "wild card" (prostitution), "fighting" and "touch-starved"; not Brit-picked. (Or very well researched. Sorry.)
Excerpt: Harry offered the first figure that came into his head. Judging from the way the boy's eyes widened, it was far too high.

He said, “I know a place,” a little too quickly. “Let me just…” He took out his phone and fired off several texts in quick succession. “One of my stepdad’s mates works in a- a hotel real close to here.” From his stutter, Harry guessed that it wasn’t a very high class establishment- but then if Harry had wanted high class he would have sought it out himself. Somewhere where they had seen everything, where they looked the other way without question- that was what Harry needed at the moment, and his knowledge of such areas in London was unfortunately lacking.

Title: Hope and Good Intentions
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Harry Hart just sold his soul to a demon in a snapback.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Very Long (33,844 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Casual sex, soul selling, smoking.  Written as an H/C bingo cross-square extra for "wild card" (deals with demons) and "tyranny/rebellion".  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: "Hope ain't ever foolish," Eggsy said.

The seriousness in his expression as he said it made him look old. It made him look like something else- and Harry wondered why exactly hope was so important to him. Perhaps, Harry thought, it wasn’t good intentions that the road to hell was paved with but hope. After all, hope was why Harry was here, clinging desperately to the notion that he might not have to play the terrible hand he had been dealt after all. That a miracle- or in this case something significantly less holy- would come along and make everything all right. Harry knew perfectly well that the world didn’t work like that.

Except maybe it did, because Eggsy’s lips pulled up into a now-familiar smirk and he said, “I’m gonna fix all this up nice for you, Harry. You'll see.”

Title: One In a Thousand
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Dagonet
Summary: A year from the day they met, Eggsy decides to do something special for Harry.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (6.724 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Not Brit-picked. Also I'm a little bit sick, but hopefully my editing job was sufficient anyway.  Part of my Heart and Understanding series.
Excerpt: Eggsy could hardly blame Harry for not realizing back then how important the day they met would eventually be, and- again- keeping track of time wasn’t Harry’s strong suit.

Harry’s strong suit, as far as Eggsy could tell, was being really good to Eggsy. Eggsy had come around, for the most part, to the idea that he deserved it, but he still wanted to… not pay Harry back exactly, but do the same. Harry had told Eggsy enough times how happy Eggsy made him already, just by being himself, that Eggsy believed that too- but he still wanted to do something to show Harry how special he was once in a while, and today seemed like the perfect place to start.

Fic: Quiet

Aug. 12th, 2016 11:03 pm
potentiality_26: (kingsman)
Title: Quiet
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Michelle Unwin + Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Daisy Unwin
Summary: Michelle still isn't quite sure what to make of Harry.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,381 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: References to past abuse.  This fills the "accidents" square for my H/C bingo. I wasn't really planning to write this, but the prompt inspired me and it did fill in some blanks, so here it is. Part of my Heart and Understanding series.  The next installment will be more Harry/Eggsy-centric (probably). Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Even giving him the benefit of the doubt, Michelle didn't always know how she felt about Harry- this young man who she could have sworn was older, this she-didn’t-even-know-what who had turned her son’s life upside down in- it seemed- all the best possible ways. Looking at him in his perfectly tailored suit, and listening to his unfailingly crisp annunciation, Michelle would never have expected someone like Harry to be as good for Eggsy as he was without there being some kind of catch. But, like with the windfalls that had brought her this new house and this new life, Michelle was starting- slowly- to believe that maybe there was no catch.

Title: None But You
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Michelle Unwin, Daisy Unwin, Original Characters
Summary: Sequel to No Charm Equal, in which there are overdue conversations and unexpected revelations.
Rating: PG-13
Length: 4,106 words
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: A “No Charm Equal” follow up where Harry meets Michelle was always in popular demand (and I feel like this isn't the version of it that anyone was hoping for, sorry), but what really prompted this fic was a reader who asked for that and also Eggsy getting jealous when someone flirted with Harry. It made me decide that there were a couple of things I still needed to address, so hopefully the angst here won’t feel like drama for drama’s sake (and of course there’s a happy ending). The title is from Persuasion- "I have loved none but you." The context there isn't the best fit, but I wanted to keep to the Austen theme. This also fills my H/C bingo "hugs" square.
Excerpt: Harry and Eggsy had ultimately decided that Eggsy should tell his mother that he and Harry had only recently made things official between them, which despite their long acquaintance was technically the truth. It wasn't a truth that made Harry look very good, but he knew he deserved that. After all, it was his own fault that nothing had happened between them earlier. Eggsy wouldn’t soon let Harry live down how long it had taken him to see that Eggsy was in love with him, and Merlin and the rest of Harry’s fellow cupids wouldn’t soon let him live down how long it had taken him to see that he was in love with Eggsy.

Title: Written In the Stars
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin
Summary: Eggsy becomes a knight. It doesn't simplify his relationship with his master as much as he hoped it might.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium (12,696 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Yep, another Star Wars AU. I haven’t read any of the others yet, so hopefully I’m bringing something unique to the table here. It's mostly based on elletromil’s tags on this post. It also plays a little bit fast and loose with Star Wars canon itself; it's inspired by the metric fuckton (technical term) of Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon fanfic I read back in the day, which I feel like is a genre in and of itself with its own rules and tropes.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Harry blinked and said, “Eggsy,” with warmth but undeniable surprise.

Though he had anticipated exactly this reception, Eggsy barely managed to keep his face from falling. Harry never seemed anything but pleased by Eggsy’s visits, but the fact that he plainly expected to see less of Eggsy hurt. Eggsy suspected that Harry disapproved but was too kind to say so, and Harry would never have let good manners stop him from telling Eggsy where he was going wrong before; it was just one more sign that the ties that had bound them together for so long were unraveling.

Title: The Lie
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Lancelot/Percival, Merlin/Roxy Morton, Charlie Hesketh, Hugo Higgins, Amelia
Summary: Eggsy works in a coffee shop, Harry is his favorite customer, Roxy matchmakes (with mixed success), and one lie makes everything far too complicated.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Long (15,373 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Thanks to klaudos for the beta. Not Brit-picked.  A line from Cabin Pressure found its way in here, see if you can spot it.
Excerpt: Roxy’s matchmaking attempts were silly and possibly hazardous to Eggsy’s health, but he didn’t think he would be anywhere near as against the idea if he wasn’t already- how had he put it to Amelia?- head over heels for one Harry Hart, who came through the shop almost every day and seemed to survive solely on coffee, whatever pastry was the special that day, and the tears of people who would never look as good in a suit as he did- i.e. everybody else in the world.

Title: No Charm Equal
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Lancelot/Percival, Amelia/Roxy Morton, Gazelle/Richmond Valentine, Merlin, Daisy Unwin, Michelle Unwin, Chester King, Charlie Hesketh, Jamal
Summary: Harry is a cupid. His latest assignment is proving to be... complicated.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Very Long (29,095 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Not Brit-picked.  Includes some references to domestic abuse and prostitution (the former is about the same as the movie itself, and the latter just a little bit more on the nose, and neither play a very big part in this story). The title comes from the quote, "There is no charm equal to the tenderness of the heart" from Jane Austen. Giant thank you to klaudos for beta-ing (and for the help with the title).
Excerpt: To say that Harry was too surprised to react at first would have been a grave understatement. He wasn’t literally invisible, because he did sometimes need to interact with mortals to do his job, he was just unnoticeable. People- the particular charge he had been assigned to most of all- were meant to see him and yet never actually process his presence. Unless he showed up in their houses- which a gentleman would never do, of course- they would ignore him and just get on with their lives. And yet here Eggsy was, closer than anyone had been to Harry since- well, since he was mortal, and that was long enough ago that Harry could hardly remember it- snarling, “Why are you following me?”

Title: The Three Curses
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Constance/d'Artagnan, Aramis/Athos/Porthos, Fleur/Ninon, Anne/Treville, Richelieu, Louis, Lebarge, Milady, Charon, Flea, Charlotte
Summary: D'Artagnan and Constance are renowned witch (and monster) hunters and their lives are about to become much more complicated.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Very Long (20,321 words)
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was sort of inspired by Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but really has nothing to do with it. Seriously, I haven't seen the movie. Beyond that, it's got a lot of ideas from fairy tales (and ideas that seem like they should be from fairy tales), but it's not based on any one in particular.  It has canon typical violence, captured by my unusually bad hand at action sequences.
Excerpt: “And then they lived happily ever after,” Constance said. “That was how the storyteller ended it, right?”
D’Artagnan hardly remembered the storyteller now. He and Constance had been little more than children then- hungry, lost, and desperate enough to make a little coin that they had sold the tale of how they had escaped from the witch who had kidnapped them both to a storyteller for the price of dinner. They had consequently lost all rights, in perpetuity, to tell anyone the tale. This had left them to lamely answer- whenever someone asked them how they knew so much about witches, warlocks, and monsters- ‘… because?’ Constance was morally opposed to paying money to watch someone who wasn’t even there tell their story, but they had seen his show once. As d’Artagnan recalled, he had ended it with that very line.

Title: Brand New Start
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Athos/Constance/d'Artagnan, Aramis, Porthos, Ninon
Summary: Modern AU: Constance always has trouble with the holidays. This year may or may not be worse than usual.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (9,021 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: My Christmas offering. This was originally conceived as kind of an office AU, which was a silly idea for me to have because- as is undoubtedly apparent- I know very little about working in an office. I fiddled with it a bit and as a result the characters work… somewhere, doing… something, and are frighteningly unprofessional about it.  Title from "Drunken Angel" by Thea Gilmore, from her holiday album Strange Communion.
Excerpt: After that, Constance went upstairs and took a shower, as if she could wash away the painful wish that she had just said yes to d’Artagnan’s offer and was currently driving home to see his family with him. She reminded herself of why she’d said no- because she did have work to do, and anyway spending Christmas with the family was a big move for two people who had only been dating for a few months. A voice in her head protested that it was more likely her attachment to her own self-imposed isolation that had made her say no, even when she’d already made the leap and started dating d’Artagnan in the first place. The voice sounded horribly like Athos.

Constance reminded the Athos-voice that he had no business talking about self-imposed isolation, and did what she always did when her life just didn’t seem right.

She went to work.

Title: Heartlines
Fandom: James Bond (Craig movies)/Sherlock
Pairing/Characters: James Bond/Q, John Watson/Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Eve Moneypenny, Bill Tanner
Summary: Soulbond AU: Q and Bond are soulmates. Naturally, it isn't as simple as it sounds.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (11,178 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me, sadly.
Notes/Warnings: First of all, I discovered this prompt on the 007 kink meme about a year after it was posted. It's probably just as well that I'm tragically late to the party, because this a) is a crossover that was in no way requested and b) focuses on all the wrong things. That said, the prompt did inspire me, and even though I pretty much failed at writing a fill, there it is. Also, here's A note about Mycroft in this story- you can look at it now if you’re interested in my somewhat lengthy ruminations about this AU, or you can come back and read it later if, after or in the midst of reading, you find yourself angry about him and want to know what the hell I think I’m up to.  Finally, I'm American and this isn't Brit-picked. Apologies.
Excerpt: Oh, to have been matched with an accountant somewhere, Q would absently think as Bond crushed an extremely expensive communications device under his heel and took a woman with this or that piece of information to bed.

“If she stabs him,” Q would observe through gritted teeth. “It’ll serve him right.”

Title: The Impossible House
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Pairing/Characters: Belle/Rumplestiltskin, Baelfire; mentions of Aurora/Mulan, Hook and Jefferson.
Summary: Doctor Who AU: Belle is a Time Lady and she wants Rumplestiltskin to come with her.
Rating: G
Length: Short (2,714 words)
Disclaimer: Neither Once Upon a Time nor Doctor Who belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings: Rumplestiltskin here is meant to come from a middle ages-ish period, but no effort has been made to be historically accurate.  This is a just a bit of fun, and likewise not really intended to be part of a larger series.  Also, it confuses the heck out of me that there are two spellings for Rumplestiltskin- I've gone with the spelling in AO3's tags for continuity's sake, but... *shrugs*
Excerpt: Nothing much ever happened to Rumplestiltskin. His was an ordinary life. A boring life, perhaps- but Rumplestiltskin told himself that he didn’t mind if his life was boring, so long as it was safe; since the war, and everything that happened after, he considered safe the thing to be. Most of the time, he even believed it. And then the Librarian came along.

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.
