An Education
Gen, PG for darkish themes, and denigration of a perfectly good Monopoly piece.
Shawn Spencer
Spoilers for "Mr. Yin Presents", minor, MINOR spoilers for season 5.
Summary: Shawn is taking night classes.
Notes: For my Alphabet Meme- Letter E, for education. Feedback welcomed.

An Education
'School of life,' is what he would say, if anyone ever asked him where his degree was from. Well, life, and University College of West Central Omaha School of Fine Arts. Thanks to late night television and Henry's generous (and unwitting) birthday gift a few years ago, Shawn has a BA in Diorama Construction. )

I have been wanting to try an writing meme again, and I like this one.

Comment with a show, pairing/character, and word prompt for the letter(s) of your choosing and I’ll write you a drabble/ficlet in return.

Pick a letter! (A is for apparent, White Collar, Peter/Elizabeth/Neal) - something in that vein.

Okay, honestly, just try me, and I'll tell you if I can do it or not.

ETA: Duh, and Supernatural. I am so lame. It's only my favourite show.

Hit me with your best shot! Multiple requests welcome.

One Week by [ profile] janeturenne

I can't say enough about how AMAZING this fic is. It's a beautiful romance without being florid, sexually charged and erotic but with only a few true sex scenes, and an absolutely beautiful character study of two difficult, brilliant, men who understand one another so well that nearly every word they speak is code for their affection. This author has written a truly amazing story that delights and teases, with little gems hidden in every scene. The emotional resonance makes it all the more romantic, without being too angsty or over-the-top.

So I was reading some Sports Night fic, which I haven't done in ages. And it was cute, though not really grabbing me, and well-written, though not breathtakingly fabulous.

And then, two minutes after throwing up twice, Dan starts making out with Casey.

That's my personal definition of "Ew", right there. I did not finish the story.

Anyone want a shortish bit of fic? I am kind of in the mood to try some drabbles.

Give me a character/pairing and a keyword or scenario, and I'll see what I can do. If I can't/don't write your fandom, you'll get a second choice.
Firefly: Remembered Stitches
Recipient: [ profile] katarik for the [ profile] axial_tilt fic exchange.
Fandom: Firefly
Title: Remembered Stitches
Author: [ profile] an_sceal
Rating: G
Summary: Zoe is a practical woman.
A/N: Thanks to [ profile] bayushi and [ profile] marigot for the read-through, [ profile] a_triath and [ profile] dave_knight for the canon help in the middle of the night, and [ profile] shrift for her awesome transcripts! Hopefully none of them will be ashamed to have their names associated with this.

The woman who brought you possibly the only Smokey and the Bandit slash on the internet now brings you...Firefly gen? Who'd have thought?

Firefly/Supernatural crossover
slash, Dean/Mal


When I first heard the words "Firefly/Supernatural crossover", I was not filled with a great sense of glee.  I just didn't think it could be done that well. 

Hooray for being wrong!  This story rocks!  I wish I had written this story.  I wish there was a whole RAFT of these stories.  I wish it wasn't over now.  I wish it hadn't left me feeling so bad for Dean, and bad for Mal, and bad for them both together, even while I was happy.  It's a terrible twist of emotion.  Zoe is also quite bitchin, as are Kaylee, River, Jayne, and Simon. 

Go and give this author love!

I don't think I've mentioned yet, but I am trying to keep track of all the fanfic I read in a year.  I've always kind of wanted to do that, just see how much it is.  I know it's quite a lot, but I've never had an exact number, and I was curious. 

To that end, I finally joined the trend and got an account there.  All of my reading so far this year is tagged with "2007".  We'll see at the end of the year how it all goes. Not all of it is good, some of it is amazing, some of it is just something I couldn't stop reading for whatever reason. The things I really loved have small summaries.
Title- Cavalier
Fandom- Supernatural
Spoilers- Season 2
Rating- R-ish Some cursing. If non-graphic Wincest (I can hear you spluttering, Tom) isn't your thing, move on by.
Summary- There's nothing funny about waking up naked in the back seat of a rusted out Cavalier.
Notes- Inspired by a prompt in [ profile] algernon_mouse's journal. I never write in second person. I loathe second person. And yet- I like this. Also, the truly awful metaphors are there on purpose, and I know just how bad they are.
Feedback- I lurves it.

In Which Eeyore Observes the Passing of the Seasons by Pouncer

This is just so sweet, so wistful, so Eeyore. It's absolutely wonderful. (And NO, it is NOT slash!) Even those of you who don't care for fanfic will probably like this.
So on the off chance that I finally finish this damn SGA fic some time soon, would anyone care to beta for me?

The first 5 people to comment on this post get to request a drabble from you. In return, they have to post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. (this is optional; you don't HAVE to do it in return, but it would be pretty spiffy if you did)

Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

What I'll Do:

Stargate: Atlantis, The OC, due South, Veronica Mars, Harry Potter (prefer non-Marauders, especially fond or Harry/Draco, Harry/Snape), House, Queer As Folk (US), Latter Days...just about anything I've ever seen/read, really. If it isn't listed, ask, and I'll give it a shot.

River/Mal, post-Serenity, spoilers for movie

Excellent.  And I have to admit, I could SO see it.
Title: Haunted
Author: an_sceal
Challenge: Non-song Songfic, 90 minutes
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: R
Disclaimer: All characters owned by J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. This is a not-for-profit fan created work.
A/N: This is another fic in the same universe as A Grave Matter, and Dirty. I've had it in my WIP file for over a year (or is that over two years? Good gods.) and when this challenge came up I had a lyric stuck in my head. I finished it in about 20 minutes once I got started, and I don't think I spent more than 90 minutes of actual writing time on it. Here's hoping that counts.

What You Need by [ profile] violaswamp
A House/Veronica Mars crossover.

Short, amusing character sketch based on the terrifying thought of House being someone's guardian. -Logan's- guardian. And wonder of wonders from me, it's PG rated gen.

Go ahead. You know you want to.

Some Strange Prophecy by Speranza
Fraser/RayK, amongst others.

Somehow I'd never read this before. It's -awesome-. It's an AU, covering some of the events of the last season of dS, but mostly a road trip/finding your feet/moving on take. Fraser and Ray travel to Atlanta to identify Victoria, and then it just gets WEIRD. But good weird.

Oh yes. I'll be fine." Fraser stared down at his laced fingers. "It's just--" Fraser paused to lick his lips. "Nerves."

"Nerves?" Ray asked, surprised. "I didn't think you had nerves."

Frase didn't look up, but his lips twitched. "Well, you would be wrong, Ray."

"You know," Ray said after a moment, "I think I find that weirdly reassuring. It brings out your human side."

"I like to keep my human side wrapped in plastic for special occasions."

"You're full of crap."

"When did you figure that out?"

"I dunno. Somewhere in Alabama, I think."
Title: Almost There
Fandom: The OC
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Angstmuffins. Make of it what you will.
A/N: Set in the nebulous "college years" time frame. Yet another wonky dream I had.

Almost There )
