potentiality_26: (kingsman)
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: 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?”

potentiality_26: (musketeers)
Title: The Second Time Around
Fandom: The Musketeers
Pairing/Characters: Athos/Milady de Winter, Anne of Austria, Catherine, Sarazin, Original Characters
Summary: Milady finds a second chance where she least expects it.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (5,578 words)
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize belongs to me.
Notes/Warnings:This started as a little vignette I wrote on tumblr that grew unexpectedly. It's kind of jossed already by what we've heard about S3, but I still wanted to get it out of my system.
Excerpt: He crossed to her, silent, and reached into his jacket. He withdrew a glove. It had been white, once, but it wasn‘t anymore. Oil, gunpowder, dirt and blood had entirely transformed it, but it was hers. Dropped in the struggle. Hers.

potentiality_26: (daniel)
Title: A Different Path
Fandom: The Hobbit
Pairing/Characters: Fili/Kili/Tauriel, Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Oakenshield, Dis, The Company
Summary: Kíli’s version of the events of An Accidental Engagement.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long (16,195 words)
Disclaimer: None of this belongs to me, except the things I made up about dwarf courting.
Notes/Warnings: Includes incest, obviously, and some suicidal behavior.  An Accidental Engagement should probably be read first even though this is very different in tone.
Excerpt: Kíli knew that he needed to convince Fíli that yes, he loved Tauriel- but he loved Fíli too and if he did nothing else for the rest of his life he would find a way to be with both of them, whether such a thing was customary among their kind or not. Kíli also knew that he was only likely to get one chance to do it, so it was going to have to be perfect.

And as Fíli would have told anyone who asked, getting things right in one try was not one of Kíli’s specialties.

potentiality_26: (musketeers)
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: A Journey Home
Fandom: The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings
Pairing/Characters: Gimli/Legolas, Tauriel (references to Kili/Tauriel), Thranduil
Summary: Legolas returns to the Greenwood with a dwarf in tow.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,551 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Includes references to canon character death and a generally unforunate balance of sadness and fluff.
Excerpt: “He is a dear friend who has been with me through many hardships.”

“Undoubtedly,” Tauriel replied. “But do not doubt for a moment that I have been among dwarves enough to know courting braids when I see them.” She nodded to Legolas’ hair. Her expression grew melancholy, but it carried traces of amusement still.

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: (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.

potentiality_26: (doctor who)
Title: Go On Forever
Fandom: Doctor Who and Torchwood
Pairing/Characters: Ianto Jones/Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones/Martha Jones, Tish Jones, Tenth Doctor, the Master, Gwen Cooper
Summary: Jack's thoughts on the end of the world.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,078 words)
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Notes/Warnings: Written for my hc_bingo square apocalypse (my card is here).  This is set around the Year That Never Was, so warnings for a) temporary character death and the end of the world and so on and b) me not having seen these episodes in a long time.  There could be inconsistancies.
Excerpt: Jack had tried, in the beginning, to talk about his team objectively, putting no more emphasis on Ianto than any of the others- but something had eventually slipped through. Before he knew it, he’d told Tish about all the good times, and when those were exhausted he’d told her about the bad ones. He’d told her about the things both of them had done wrong, and about the things he bitterly regretted not doing.

Tish said, “When this is over, ask him out on a date.”

Jack didn’t say, “This won’t ever be over.” That was one of the things they never said.

potentiality_26: (stargate)
Title: Legends
Fandom: Sanctuary
Pairing/Characters: Helen Magnus/James Watson; mentions of Helen/John Druitt and James/John Druitt
Summary: Helen and James- and the changing times.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,426 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was written for the older_not_dead promptathon 18 prompt "history class."  Also, it's been quite a while since I saw Sanctuary last, and there are parts of the final season I never saw, so bear that in mind.  This is set pre-series, but my timeline could be wonky.
Excerpt: Helen enjoyed having dinner with James, of course she did, but when it came to his tastes- in food, in wine, in nearly everything- it was as though no time had passed at all. When he dressed for dinner, it might as well have been 1888 again. Helen didn’t mind dressing for dinner- she enjoyed looking good as much as anyone- but she favored modern styles. She hated to look in the mirror and forget how much time had passed.

Title: Full Circle
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Pairing/Characters: Belle/Rumplestiltskin, OFC; mentions of Jefferson
Summary: Belle and Rumplestiltskin end up more or less back where they started.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,456 words)
Disclaimer: These lovely characters do not belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This was written for the older_not_dead promptathon 18 prompt "when you get to live forever."I really have no idea where things are going on OUAT lately, so I was a little at sea imagining a "Future Fic" scenario. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon for giving me some great ideas and generally holding my hand. As for the actual contents, I'm not sure how valid or possible this scenario is. I just want them to be happy, you know?
Excerpt: Rumplestiltskin eyed her. “I have little desire to take on another princess for a maid.”

“I didn’t think it went so terribly for you the last time,” Belle replied.

You know how fabulous I am?  I just saw S3 of Sherlock.  Just yesterday.  For the first time.  I only have a couple of the things to say that are spoiler-y and if you want to see it and you still haven't you're even more fabulous than I am, so-

It's under a cut )
potentiality_26: (once upon a time)
Fandom: Robin Hood (BBC)
Subject: Guy of Gisborne/Maid Marian (Post-S2 Fix)
Title: Home is Just a Word
Warnings/Notes: I was totally going to write a little fic to go with this, but it got away from me and it isn't done, so this is just the mix; spoilers for the end of S2; warnings for bad language in one song and me being an apologist; made for [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes challenge #25 (Fix-It).

The future's in our hands and we will never be the same again )
potentiality_26: (justified)
Fandom: Justified
Subject: Ava Crowder
Title: Ready for the Fire
Warnings/Notes: Spoilers for seasons 1-3; mentions of violence.  S4 introduced an arc for Ava that I don't feel is finished, so I've limited this to the first three seasons; made for [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes challenge #23 (Character Study).  This is a gen mix, but my Ava/Raylan and Ava/Boyd feels are definitely showing in the summary.  Apologies.

With that loaded shotgun, well/you'll always be left alone )
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.”
