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: Out of the Cold
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Merlin
Summary: A mission gone wrong.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,744 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Yep, I wrote trudging through snow angst in the middle of summer. The title is from "Keep Me Warm" by The Little Estate feat. Erin Bowman, which I found by googling word combinations- but it's actually a very nice song to listen to while looking at gingerbread recipes and pining for winter like I've been doing. This fills my H/C bingo "near death experiences" square.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “I know you don’t want to start talking like this,” Harry said. “But we have to think practically. I’m slowing you down.” The snow was thick and Eggsy would have been having trouble walking through it even without Harry draped over his shoulders. And at his age- and Harry so hated thoughts that began with ‘at his age’, but again practicality had to win out- Harry just couldn’t handle the cold or the exertion as well as he once did, and that was without the twisted ankle and cracked ribs.

Title: Interruptions
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Original Characters
Summary: Eggsy really hates Harry’s candidate for Tristan. He feels it’s justified.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (3,042 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I got this idea quite a while ago, when I saw an imagine-your-OTP style prompt where character A gets stood up and character B pretends to have been their date (I haven’t been able to track down the actual post since then), and immediately after that also saw some speculation about how Eggsy would probably feel about Harry’s next candidate, but I only recently actually got it off the ground.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Just when Eggsy let himself think that he might get through this without being asked any awkward questions, Harry said- very casually- “Am I right in supposing that your being here instead of George means that you chose to come here directly instead of simply telling him that he’d forgotten he had plans with me? And you came here very directly at that- ten minutes, Eggsy?”

“It was good exercise.” Eggsy lifted his menu to hide his face- and his blush- from Harry. “And I thought about it, but nah. I ain’t giving George that kind of help, am I?”

Title: To Make a Beginning
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Tilde
Summary: Villains are thwarted, a princess rescues Eggsy more than the other way around, and Harry is a bit difficult- so probably a pretty average New Year's Eve, all things considered.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,414 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Happy belated New Year everyone! This fills the bodyguards square for my H/C bingo. The title comes from T.S. Eliot apparently: “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” I found that searching New Year's quote compilations (as one does) and liked it. Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: After he got her and all the other VIPs who had told Valentine that he could go to hell out of that bunker, Eggsy had kept in touch with Tilde. It had been relatively clear from the beginning, given what had already happened- and not happened- between them, that their future relations would never have been of the romantic variety, not even if Harry hadn’t turned out to be alive.

But Harry had turned out to be alive, and Tilde’s advice on that subject had always been to snap Harry up as soon as possible.

Title: The Brightest of Signs
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Harry Hart + Roxy Morton, Harry/Eggsy, Roxy/Merlin
Summary: Harry talks Roxy through a mission just before Christmas.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5,083 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This fills the motion sickness square for my H/C bingo. The backstory I give Harry in this might not be to all tastes; it popped into my head the very first time I saw the movie and I’ve had a really had time letting it go. The title is from Harbor by Vienna Teng.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Harry could practically hear the wheels in Lancelot’s head turning as she put what he had just told her together with everything she already knew about him- very little that Eggsy hadn’t told her, most likely, since this was the longest conversation the two of them had yet had. And Eggsy might not have told her very much at all; Harry had noticed that Eggsy could be rather territorial of him, disinclined to share him with anyone- even his closest friend in the organization.

Title: Feels Like Home
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart
Summary: Harry learns to like holding Eggsy- perhaps too much.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (6,328 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This fills the "hugs" square for my H/C bingo. This was meant to be a 5 + 1 but I'm not really sure what it is now.  Thanks to klaudos for the beta. Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Harry had seen Merlin’s footage from when the dormitory flooded- he knew that Eggsy was all lean muscle, so he was surprised by how soft Eggsy went in his arms. He’s so young, Harry thought, an unexpected surge of protectiveness going through him. He tightened his grip on Eggsy without meaning to. Despite Eggsy’s immediate protest when Harry had offered him a way out, Harry wondered, briefly, if he might not have been a poor choice for Lancelot after all.

There was nothing for it, of course. Harry hadn’t lied when he told Eggsy that he saw great potential in him, and Eggsy would succeed or he wouldn’t. All Harry could do now was wait and see.

Title: Plus One
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Pairing/Characters: Bashir/Garak, Original Characters
Summary: Julian works in a hospital on Cardassia after the war and learns some new things.
Rating: PG or PG-13
Length: Medium (6,232 words)
Disclaimer: These characters aren't mine.
Notes/Warnings: This makes some assumptions about Cardassian courtship that aren’t necessarily supported by the canon, but I just wanted to write a fic where Garak and Bashir's relationship was kind of a quintessential Cardassian courtship; everything else I just made up as I went along.
Excerpt: “How are you, Garak?” Julian asked when he sat down. Complicated though things had been between them ever since Elina’s engagement, he was still happy to see his friend whenever he did. In truth, Garak had been cool with him since before the engagement- he had been cool with him since he came to Cardassia- but it wasn’t until after the engagement that Julian finally realized the indefinable something that had been missing from their friendship since they both left Deep Space Nine was that Garak was no longer flirting with him

potentiality_26: (once upon a time)
Title: An Accidental Engagement
Fandom: The Hobbit
Pairing/Characters: Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield, Fili/Kili/Tauriel, Dis, The Company
Summary: Bilbo's fake-it-'til-you-make-it interpretation of dwarven culture is working quite well for him, thank you very much- all the way up until it really, really isn't.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (8,445 words)
Disclaimer: None of this belongs to me, except the things I made up about dwarf courting.
Notes/Warnings: Apologies for all the background OT3 that happened in this fic.  You can read Kili's POV of the events in this story in A Different Path, which is much more explicit than this fic.
Excerpt: “It’s something I’ve been working on, for Thorin. It’s a … chronicle. Of our adventure.” Bilbo thought that would be fine thing for Thorin to have, but suddenly he found himself wondering if it was a suitable gift for a king. “That is… right, isn’t it?”

“Yes,” Kíli said eagerly. He was practically glowing. “Since you’re not one for dwarven crafts, that is. It’s a work of your hands and a very symbolic one too. It’s perfectly appropriate.”

Bilbo glanced at Fíli for confirmation, and found him unusually pale. But then, Kíli was elbowing him rather hard and perhaps in a place that was still tender. “Yes,” Fíli agreed at last, and conjured a slow smile. “It’s appropriate.”

potentiality_26: (heroes)
Title: Auld Lang Syne
Fandom: The Blacklist
Pairing/Characters: Elizabeth Keen/Raymond Reddington
Summary: Not one of Liz’s better ideas.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Very short (437 words)
Disclaimer: Just borrowing these characters.
Notes/Warnings: I’m not saying that Red is Liz’s father in this story or that I believe he is, but I’m not completely closing the door on it either, so if you need that extra cushion you might want to give this one a miss. Though I doubt many people reading will recognize it, I want to mention that this fic was inspired by a scene in the first episode of a show called The Big Valley. In it, a woman tries to prove that a man who claims to be her half brother isn’t by seducing him, based on the notion that he wouldn't kiss her if he really believed they were related. Anyway, my brain decided that this + The Blacklist would be magic. I wanted to get it off my chest before the series came back.
Excerpt: There was a moment where all Liz could do was ask herself if she was really doing this: playing incest chicken with a master criminal at the beginning of the new year. Did she think he’d hesitate at the last minute? Peck her awkwardly on the cheek against his character, who was meant to be deeply in love with his younger girlfriend? Did she intend to shout ‘aha!’ as soon as they were out of that room and force him to finally give her a straight answer?

potentiality_26: (musketeers)
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: Having Plans
Fandom: Longmire
Pairing/Characters: Henry Standing Bear/Vic Moretti/Walt Longmire, The Ferg, mentions of Vic/Ed Gorski and Vic/Sean Moretti
Summary: Sequel to Endings and Beginnings
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (2,855 words)
Disclaimer: These lovely characters are not mine.
Notes/Warnings: So, this is probably not everything everyone was hoping for in a sequel to Ending and Beginnings. What can I say? I was inspired by Henry’s least favorite holiday, and then I needed a few days to get it off the ground. I adore Vic’s family in the book series, but since I’m pretty sure that the whole Gorski business would not have gone down like it did on their watch I have concluded that TV canon Vic’s family is very different, and I don't recall any mentions of them in the series, so I used that as an excuse to make them less than awesome.
Excerpt: “What are you doing for Thanksgiving?” Vic asked.

If the non-sequitur bothered Walt, he didn’t show it. “The same thing I always am, probably. Having a dinner of things which are not turkey, cranberry sauce or sweet potatoes with Henry. Sometimes Cady comes along. Sometimes not.”

“And this year?”

“I think she’s going to visit some friends from law school. As is probably evident, it was never a big family event, even when Martha was still with us.”

Title: Scars
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Athos/d'Artagnan, Aramis, Porthos
Summary: Athos' shot leaves a scar. He and d'Artagnan have different ways of looking at it.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,580 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Written for this prompt. Apologies if the ending seems… abrupt. Fading to black is not my greatest skill.
Excerpt: “Porthos and Aramis wanted me to see you.”

Athos seemed sufficiently dazed that d’Artagnan wondered if they hadn’t in fact deposited him on d’Artagnan’s doorstep, knocked, and ran.

Title: Other Factors
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Athos/Treville, Aramis, d'Artagnan
Summary: Athos and Treville are caught in a trap.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,788 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Written for this prompt. I have made it a near death experience fic rather than actual character death, because a) the prompt seemed to leave an opening for it and b) I’m a marshmallow.
Excerpt: “Is it that bad?”

“Not at all,” Athos said. It was difficult to tell if he was lying. “Aramis will have it good as new.”

Treville concluded that Athos believed what he was saying- but he knew that the faith his Inseparables had in Aramis’ healing abilities did sometimes stretch beyond the power of medicine. What was more, there was no way to be sure Aramis was even coming- coming soon, anyway- and Treville could feel himself fading. If he fell asleep, he wasn’t sure he’d wake again.

potentiality_26: (agents of shield)
Title: Agent and Hawkeye's Epic Romance
Fandom: The Avengers
Pairing/Characters: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Pepper Potts/Tony Stark, Bruce Banner. Natasha Romanov, Steve Rogers (implied Bucky/Steve), Thor
Summary: Tony is just trying to build a supportive workplace.  Really.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (6,108 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters are mine.
Notes/Warnings: Written for this prompt on cc_feelsmeme.  This prompt is almost two years old.  I have, accordingly, written the fic like it is two years.  So... warnings for nostaglia?
Excerpt: ‘Odd’ being such an expansive term, Tony had honestly expected Jarvis to produce an explanation for Barton’s behavior to the effect of, ‘He only likes to sleep in trees or on the roofs of very tall buildings’ instead of what he eventually found: paperwork.

Spousal paperwork, because apparently SHIELD had stock forms for handler/agent weddings, a notion that, frankly, horrified Tony.

Title: The Bet
Fandom: Mr. Lucky
Pairing/Characters: Andamo/Mr. Lucky
Summary: It's the worst wager Lucky's ever made- or possibly the best, depending on what comes next.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,775 words)
Disclaimer: These characters do not belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Ever notice how Maggie only seems to exist when the story requires it? Today, as it happens, the story doesn't require it.
Excerpt: “All right,” Andamo said, with that look of his that managed to be both suspicious and trusting at once- the one he usually reserved for when Lucky had some scheme up his sleeve that he didn’t understand but was willing to believe would work. It was strange to see it now, when Lucky himself was quite sure that this was going to end badly.

Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5,063 words)
Disclaimer: No one you recognize belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] older_not_dead promptathon 17 prompt "the bad food was the best part of the evening"
Excerpt: Henry looked like he’d be slipping bites to the dog, if the Pipers had had a dog. Being Henry, he was probably even smooth enough to get away with it.

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.
