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: 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: Through the Years
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart + Ensemble
Summary: Across three Christmases.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (4,910 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: I suspect this doesn't completely work with the timeline of the movie, so I guess just think of it as slightly AU?  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: Merlin didn’t let Eggsy into Harry’s room very often. Eggsy wasn’t sure if it was actually because he wanted Eggsy to concentrate on the trials- which would probably make Merlin the only person who thought Eggsy was going to last long enough for it to matter- or if he just didn’t want to encourage the stupid school kid crush he clearly knew Eggsy had on Harry.

See, Eggsy knew it was stupid. He didn’t even understand it most of the time, just why he had walked out of that police station, took one look at Harry- twice his age, all perfectly put together and posh- and thought yes please.

Other times, Eggsy remembered seeing Harry plow through Dean’s boys like one of his most secret fantasies made flesh. He remembered hearing Harry’s voice come out of nowhere like the voice of God and save him from Dean. He remembered feeling Harry's heat and inhaling his expensive cologne as Harry settled at his side and said he had potential and he- for the first time in a long time- believed it. Those times, Eggsy thought of course you’ve got a crush on him, bruv.

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.

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: In Time
Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing/Characters: Harry Hart + Merlin, Eggsy Unwin/Harry Hart, Roxy Morton, Original Characters
Summary: Just a few of the so-many-more-than-five times Merlin told Harry he was late (and one time Harry actually wasn’t).
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium (6,188 words)
Disclaimer: None of these characters belong to me.
Notes/Warnings: As I was working on this I kept getting weirdly sure that it had been done before. I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but if it has been I haven’t read the fic, so hopefully I’m bringing something new to the table. Also, I feel like I should mention that though this is from Merlin’s POV it’s really a story about Harry in a lot of respects. If that’s going to bother you, maybe steer clear? Finally, I think this is going to fill my H/C bingo "wild card" square (survivor's guilt). As such, even though nobody dies on screen, the fallout of characters dying (Lee, James, an OC) is pretty central to the story.  Not Brit-picked.
Excerpt: “You’re late, Galahad.”

“Fashionably,” Galahad said as he took a glass of champagne from a passing waiter. Given how aggravating he found almost everything about Galahad, Merlin still didn’t know why Morgana had asked him to do this. Or, rather, he knew exactly why- Morgana probably thought this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship- but that didn’t mean she was right.

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.

Summary: An interlude while in the field.
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short (1,734 words)
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.

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: 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: 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

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.

Summary: Henry agrees to be honest playing "Never Have I Ever."

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.

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.”

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: 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?

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.
