Title: Ceasefire
Rating: R/NC-17?
Warnings: As per the show, plus Brad/Nate. Although Ray almost merits a warning of his own.
Disclaimer: Based solely on the characters depicted in the HBO miniseries.
Summary: Brad and his emotions have an understanding: he doesn't talk about, or think about, anything that might affect his combat effectiveness, and his emotions do whatever the fuck he tells them to. 11,000 words written in response to the prompt Ceasefire.
A/N: This fic was previously posted anonymously here as part of the combat_jack Team Day vs. Team Night challenge. The version that appears below is a slightly edited version of the original. I am indebted to oxoniensis for her awesome beta skills and ninja cheerleading, and everyone at After Action Report for the transcripts, one or two lines from which are reproduced here. All wrongness that remains is mine.

CeasefireCollapse )

How TV fandom, and fanfic, ruined my perfectly good hobby of reading
(Yes, I wrote an essay. Weird, I know. Moving on.)

So I have some vacation time. And there are bookstores. And I spend maybe three or four hours of said vacation time just browsing the shelves, picking up books that I've heard of, or whose authors I've heard of, and checking them out: is this the kind of book I'm in the mood for?

Answer: no, not really.Collapse )

And then it went all f***ing Stargate
Title: is redacted to save my flist from getting into trouble at work
Fandoms: Generation Kill/Firefly
Rating: PG-13, or maybe R, for language. You know Ray.
Word count: 3,300ish.
Disclaimer: Yeah, not mine. I just play here. Based on the TV shows. You know the drill.
Summary: "Ray, don't touch that—" *ZAP* The boys find themselves lost in an alternate universe where spacecowboys make break the rules. Thanks to their_darkness for the prompt :D
A/N: This started as comment-fic here <— total thread pimpage, btw but quickly got out of hand. There might be more.

Ray, don't touch that —Collapse )

These Boots Are Made For Walking
Title: These Boots Are Made For Walking
Fandom: Generation Kill
Rating: PG-13, for language
Word count: 1,480
Summary: "If we're gonna step off, I wanna do it dressed like a real man!" Some notes in the margins before Bravo Company leaves Camp Mathilda.
Disclaimer: All characters based solely on the HBO series Generation Kill.
A/N: Just finished watching the series for the first time last week. Damn. More fic incoming; stay frosty.
PS: They really do talk like sailors. Don't say I didn't warn you, flist.

(For my flist: Brad, Ray, Rolling Stone.)

You will not believe the extent to which this Marine's day tasted like ass.Collapse )

In the margins
Fandom: Studio 60
Characters: Danny, Jordan, Matt, Simon
Rating: PG-13
Word count: a smidge over 1000
Spoilers: Up to 1.11 (The Christmas Show)
A/N: These are just a couple of 'extra scenes' from The Christmas Show. My first attempt at any S60 writing, so I'm just colouring bits in until I get the hang of the characters.

Danny was on the phone with Jordan Collapse )

Fandom: Heroes
Title: Intervention
Rating: PG-13, for language
Word-count: 2700ish
Prompt, from damson: 'Five Years Gone' verse. Present or Future!Peter and, of course, same goes for Claude. Bonus bonus points for a little Christmas/festive content, as to what festive content includes and/or actually is, interpret as you will!
A/N: This was originally published as part of the Plaude Christmas Fic Exchange in January ... but because it was posted anonymously at the time, and I was kinda busy, I never did re-post it here. So for completeness, and because I still really like its snarky, bittersweet vibe, here it is.

He followed Hiro's directions - it wasn't hard - and found himself in an alley between derelict buildingsCollapse )

Out of sight, out of mind
I have been on sabbatical - apologies. But that can't go on; I miss you guys too much. And I miss writing! So I'm back, although I'm not even sure I can remember how to do this. But I must anyway. So there.

Please consider this small offering, originally inspired by c_quinn, as an apology for my total lameness of late:

Title: Out of sight, out of mind
Fandom: Firefly/Heroes
Rating: PG-13

Seat's taken, friend. Best look elsewhere.Collapse )

8:50 pm
Characters: Hana/Claude/Bennet and some extra little cameos.
Rating: soft R, mostly for language
Word count: 6,200ish. Blimey.
Disclaimer: Yeah, not even close to being mine. Damn it.
Summary: He wanted to say that he didn't need her help. That he was perfectly fine as he was, thanks very much. That Bennet, family sodding values notwithstanding, would be back around. He always came back. Regular bleedin' boomerang, Bennet. But it'd been six months, and it wasn't like Claude had ever been all that patient to begin with.
A/N: This is mildly AU, since Claude, Hana and Bennet are all working for Primatech at the same time. What? I can dream.

He's not bothered, really, when she hits him. Claude likes feisty girls, and Hana is nothing if not feisty.

Title: Talking Points Have Lesser Points (And So On, Ad Infinitum)
Fandom: The West Wing
Characters: ensemble
Word Count: 2,850
Rating: PG
Summary: "Yeah, look, the trade deal—it's, uh, looking a little beat up right now."
A/N: This sorta' fits into the cracks around 5.19 (Talking Points) and before 5.20 (Crash). I may be taking minor liberties with the timeline; it's hard to tell from canon.

Donna was in early, but Josh had gotten there earlier.Collapse )

Death and Taxes
Characters: Claude/Bennet
Rating: R, for sex and language.
Word count: 4,170
Spoilers: Set between ".07%" and "The Hard Part"; some spoilers for those.
Summary: Stupid, is what it is. Can't undo seven years with a taser and a bit of a grope. Don't know what I was thinkin'. Wasn't thinkin'. Sequel to Probability.
A/N: Massive thanks to fantasticpants, for the title, all the encouragement, endless re-reads, and general taser-pr0n cheerleading. Thanks too to the guys over at 5_years_gone, for Claude/Bennet inspiration. Y'all rock!

Previously ...

... so that's it.Collapse )

Fandoms: The West Wing/Heroes (gen crossover fic)
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 3,400
Summary: Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman meets with newly-elected Congressman Nathan Petrelli to discuss a mutual and imminent PR problem. (Mah timelinez: let me schmoosh u them.)
A/N: This is unbelievably talky; I guess that's The West Wing for you. Thanks to visiblemarket for the prompt, and to mystery_sock for providing background reading :)

Congressman Petrelli and his aide were waiting for Josh in the Roosevelt Room.Collapse )

6:58 pm
Characters: Claude/Bennet
Rating/Warnings: R, for extensive violence and bad language.
Word count: 3,384
Spoilers: Very minor ones up to S2, but virtually nothing past 1.17 ("Company Man")
Summary: Even after you've calculated the odds and checked your working, twice, some things are still just ... inevitable. Set between ".07%" and "The Hard Part".
A/N: Heartfelt morally grey thanks to fantasticpants for her endless encouragement and suggestions, and to entangled_now, who started the whole taser-porn thing in the first place.

He's fifteen blocks from the poodle's place before it takes himCollapse )

The Little Things
Title: The Little Things
Rating: PG
Pairing: Sandra/Bennet
Word count: Just shy of 4,000
Warnings/Spoilers: Spoilers for 1.17 ("Company Man")
Recipient/Prompts: marcal_92/ Pre-Claire and Lyle; Why Sandra fell in love with HRG; Sandra wants kids.
Summary: Always the little things, to let her know that he loved her. And so she shouldn't have been surprised, she supposed, that it was also the little things that gave him away.
A/N: Written for the rare_heroes Sekrit Santa fic exchange. Profound thanks to fantasticpants, who read this several times, above and beyond the call of duty, and who encouraged me greatly as well as pointing out my silly mistakes (all that remain are mine). The usual credit to visiblemarket, who will forever be my Sandra muse, and who inspired one or two of the moments in here.

It's always been the little things.Collapse )

Rating: soft R, for language and slash.
Pairing: Claude/Bennet
Warnings/Spoilers: Moderate violence; no spoilers past 1.17 ("Company Man").
Recipient/Prompts: Written for trollopfop as part of Morally Grey November. I'm so sorry it's late! Prompts were: Broken bottles, glittering under a streetlight. A memory involving tubes and scalpels (not necessarily used on Claude or Bennet themselves). This line, or a variation on it: "You know what the problem is with love? You give away a piece of yourself. And will you look at that, I'm fresh out."
Word Count: 8,981. Woah.
Summary: He likes his new partner. Likes the way that Bennet, for all his dependence on protocol and the chain of command, isn't quite as impervious to Claude's reckless grin as he'd like to pretend. It's altogether rather promising.
A/N: Eternal morally grey gratitude to fantasticpants, who for the longest time was the only thing standing between me and death by plot bunny. I am not worthy. Really.

Edit: Thanks to runningondreams for my banner!

Son of edit: This story won an award for Best Bennet characterization in a fic :D

And this is the main laboratoryCollapse )

Spoilers: AU, but up to 1.17 ("Company Man"), to be safe.
Summary: Holocaust-era Heroes.
Disclaimer: Nothing is mine but the words.
A/N: Today we visit some strangely familiar territory with Peter and Claude, and Bennetti learns a secret. (Previous chapters)

It's a cold, grey morning when they find themselves on the outskirts of LiegeCollapse )

Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Through 1.17 ("Company Man")
Word count: 5,700.
Summary: Bennet's never woken him at five in the morning just to ask him to come to the office.
A/N: The story takes place around 1997 (9 years before S1) and was written for fantasticpants, in response to the prompt: Claude/Bennet, "When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk". Grateful thanks to fool_of_ships for throwing out several very interesting ideas when I posted the first section of this as part of a "works in progress" meme a while back, and to entangled_now, who beta-read the story for me and made enormously helpful suggestions. You're all fab :)

You following B5 over there?Collapse )

Shirt button
Characters: Bennet, Sandra (implied Bennet/Claude in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it sort of a way)
Rating: G in terms of actual content; possibly very soft PG-13
Word count: 750
Summary: People lose shirt buttons all the time.
A/N: entangled_now gave me the prompt "stealth tactics, shirt buttons". Thanks! ... although I seem to have turned it into something über-mundane ;)

Sewing on a button really shouldn't be this hard.Collapse )

There's rain pelting down on the car Collapse )
