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 This is based on an American (and also outdated) university experience and I'm afraid I don't know a whole lot about TAs (only one of my profs ever had one), so apologies in advance for any mistakes there.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: The Vacation
Fandom: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Pairing/Characters: Percival Graves + Tina Goldstein, Seraphina Picquery
Summary: Graves isn't going to make this mistake again.
Rating: PG
Length: Short (1,302 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: Inspired by a conversation with icecream_junkie (I did write it after all!); ghis is not a particularly serious fic (in any sense of the term), it’s not historically accurate and probably not totally in line with Harry Potter lore either, and I doubt it's particularly original- but I’m rather pleased with it for all that, and I wanted to get it out there.
Excerpt: A few clerks noticed the paperwork and had a good laugh at the thought of Percival Graves going on vacation. They took bets on when he would change his mind, what crisis would erupt to keep him in New York, whether he would forget his plans to leave entirely- if indeed he had made those plans to begin with. A few suggested that someone must have filed the forms for Graves without consulting him- in an effort to get him to decompress, most likely, that would end in failure.
So when Graves arrived at work as expected on the day his vacation was to have begun, no one was surprised or suspicious. Some money exchanged hands on the lower levels, and no one on the higher levels was even sure he’d been leaving in the first place.

Title: Healing
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart
Summary: Eggsy has a system for when he gets injured in the field. Today it's gone a little bit... awry.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (4,006 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: References to past abuse.  I'm sure this plot has been done before, but hopefully I put an interesting spin on it. Written as an H/C bingo cross-square extra for "wild card" (hiding an injury or illness) and "touch-starved".  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Eggsy was a spy; it was his job to get in and get out without starting anything with anyone, and unlike Harry he was actually pretty good at that. It was rare that Eggsy got into a real fight in the field, and rarer still that he ended up seriously hurt- but it did happen. The first few times it happened, he’d told his mother that he’d been in a minor car crash, then a mugging, and then- as he started scraping the bottom of the excuse barrel- he had caught himself actually thinking about telling her that he’d run into a door or tripped down the stairs.

That was when he realized he had a problem.

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: 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: 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: 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.

Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: This fills the scars square for my H/C bingo.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “Keep still,” Harry instructed quietly, his lips twitching with amusement.

“Sure,” Eggsy said, and smiled when Harry gripped his chin lightly and turned his head away so that Eggsy’s eyes- or rather Eggsy’s glasses- couldn’t take him in anymore. Harry bent and pressed a soft kiss to Eggsy's shoulder, right above the bandages he had just applied.

Summary: Henry agrees to be honest playing "Never Have I Ever."
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,094 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings:I'd set this sort of midway through the series? It's when I got the idea, though it took me forever (heh) to actually get it together.
Excerpt: Then came Henry’s turn. He had to think for a moment, then: “Never have I ever streamed a movie.” He even said ‘streamed’ like it was a word in a foreign language that he had picked up the meaning of in context but still wasn’t quite sure of.

potentiality_26: (wild wild west)
Title: A Night's Work

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.

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.

Title: Moment of Truth

Pairing/Characters: Aramis/Athos
Summary: A confrontation after "Musketeers Don't Die Easily" ends.
Rating: NC-17
Length: Short (3,167 words)
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I’m just a posting demon right now. The explanation is that I tend to hoard finished fics, flailing around about how they could be better- but with the new season coming up I’m finally making myself post them.
Excerpt: “You have put yourself, and me, and most likely Porthos and d’Artagnan by association- to say nothing of the Queen- in a great deal of danger. She is reasonably safe from the Cardinal now, but should he find anything that could be construed as proof that this child is not the king’s…”

“It’s not as if we wrote each other love letters.”

“At this point, Aramis, I am putting nothing past you.” As he watched Athos now, Aramis slowly realized that the look in the throne room had been an aberration. Athos was actually much, much angrier than he had let on then.

potentiality_26: (longmire)
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.

potentiality_26: (musketeers)
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: (sherlock)
Title: Observation 101
Fandom: Sherlock
Pairing/Characters: Greg Lestrade/Molly Hooper, Mycroft Holmes/Sherlock Holmes
Summary: Greg is stood up on a blind date, whereupon things get... strange.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (4,559 words)
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Notes/Warnings: Written for this prompt on sherlockbbc_fic.  Warnings for incest, and Greg and Molly being really incredibly dense.  They got a nice date out of it?
Excerpt: That was Mycroft Holmes sitting a few tables away; Greg would know him anywhere. It wasn’t his presence in itself that was so surprising; this might not have been Greg’s kind of place, but it had to be Mycroft’s. The surprise lay in the fact that he had a woman with him and Greg had been reasonably sure that Mycroft was gay. Gayer than picnic basket. Gayer than Christmas. Gayer than… something really very gay.

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.
