Blue Moon Coffee
Title: The Season Of Singing
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Kings
Summary: David desperately wants to be Jack's friend and ally. Jack doesn't know what he wants. There's probably a preordained plan for both of them, but they're going to have to work out the details on their own.
Notes: Written for Arsenic's birthday, because both of us were annoyed that Jack and David weren't friends in the show.

Blue Moon Coffee
Title: Kiss The Sky
Rating: R
Summary: Steve's not sure where he is, or how he got there, or why there's a tentacle there, but at least he's having fun.

Notes: Originally written for the Dubious Consentacles throwdown on tumblr, a competition designed to increase the number of fics with the Dubious Consentacles tag on AO3 and get the tag canonized. A history of how it came about may be found here. I am pleased to say Kiss The Sky was the contest winner!

8th-Feb-2014 10:01 am - By The Days
Blue Moon Coffee
We look on History’s face through crystal eyes
Surrounded by a thousand clacking gears
Which keep a record of our scars on her
In magnet tapes and discs. Down through the years
Will little tape-wheel rounds read easier
Than painted walls which heard Iskander sing?
(Fate, History’s sister, never promised us
More kindness than she showed Etruscan kings.)

-- from "How Much For Three?"

My newly-minted book of poetry, By The Days, is now for sale!

12th-Dec-2013 08:38 pm - Hydrocodone Midnight Theatre
Blue Moon Coffee
This is a compendium of the "Hydrocodone Midnight Theatre" posts I did while I was recovering from surgery in late November. Essentially I would sit up after my folks went to bed and write fanfic to various prompts while tripping out on my (prescribed!) painkillers.

tehnakki: I love how suggestible you are when stoned! I should have spent today preparing weird fic ideas to take advantage of you in this state.
copperbadge: I’m spending like the next four days on high doses of opiates, so you’ve got time...

You can find all the original posts plus various side discussions under this tag on tumblr.

Blue Moon Coffee
Title: The Best Bad Ideas
Rating: R
Summary: When Clint Barton put on the Captain America costume for a mission, he didn't count on Phil Coulson's reaction. Coulson didn't count on Clint crashing his new team to do something about it.
Notes: This was semi-inspired by a throwaway line in I Shall Not Want Honour In Heaven where Fury is considering putting Clint Barton in the Cap costume before Steve is found. It turned into a terrifying romantic comedy with telepaths. I can't explain it. Also, because it's a bit of a mashup, I ignored the "there are no telepaths/kinetics in AoSverse" thing.
Warnings: While I wouldn't actually warn for consent issues on this one, the whole thing is a little heightened by how concerned with consent/coercion Coulson is, so tread cautiously. Also warning for kidnapping. It's a very strange story.

Blue Moon Coffee
Title: Angry Genius White Noise
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Summary: One of Pepper’s favorite activities after a long day is putting on sci-fi movies and watching Tony dissect their bad science. He’ll happily spend two hours curled up against her and ranting about the flawed central plan in Armageddon and how REALLY, HE HOPES AN ASTEROID HEADS FOR EARTH, HE’LL SHOW HOLLYWOOD HOW TO REALISTICALLY AVOID AN EXTINCTION-LEVEL EVENT, DAMMIT. Pepper finds it oddly relaxing, like angry genius white noise. Add in Bruce, and she could sell tickets.
Notes: Based on a glorious art post by MaskedFangirl.

2nd-Nov-2013 10:45 am - Avengers: Coulson's Eleven
Blue Moon Coffee
Title: Coulson's Eleven
Rating: PG-13
Summary: After Vanko destroyed the Stark Expo, SHIELD instituted a Superhuman Detention program, designed to capture and hold dangerous people -- dangerous people like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and others who made themselves noticeable. The superhumans SHIELD has imprisoned -- and some SHIELD agents themselves -- have other ideas about what constitutes 'dangerous'...
Notes: This is the brainchild of assvengrrs on Tumblr, who suggested an AU which entranced me so much I had to write a fic. The concept and some of the dialogue from this fic come from that post.

The fic is seven chapters; the links take you to chapter one at their respective sites.

Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Gore, extreme violence, mentions of rape.
Summary: Mike has been waiting all his life for someone who understands -- but Harvey might care too much to survive.
Notes: Written to a prompt at the Suits Meme: Basically, Serial Killer Mike? He has access to big bad guys now, what does he do with that? I would love this to be slash, meld this story as you see fit anon. With debts to Dexter, American Psycho, and Hannibal (the books primarily, but the screen media as well).

Alternate Universe
Title: Hawkeye and Anklebiter
Rating: G
Summary: Clint wants to give his kid the world. Isobel's not complicated; she'll settle for a couple of superheroes and a train set.
Notes: Dr Kara requested "Single-dad Clint/Coulson" and while I'd seen Coulson as a dad in fanfic, I'd never seen Clint, so.
Warnings: Very brief mentions of PTSD and child abuse. Less brief mentions of grief and mourning.

I'm not sure really how to mention this without spoiling, but uh. There's a happy ending, ok? Happy ending. Keep it in mind.

Warnings: Some discussion of depression/PTSD including references to suicidal ideation.
Summary: It turns out, in the 21st century, Steve's best friend is an eighteen-year-old genius named Tony Stark. This might be trouble.
Notes: Written for Ironfries on tumblr, who wanted a young Tony with an older Steve. It incorporated many from the List Of Marr's Favourite Things, which I deduced by reading her Tumblr: Tony being tiny, age differences, Steve crying, butts, and blankets (many).

Title: Robot Trip or, Armed And Dangerous
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None.
Summary: Tony is driving from Malibu to Manhattan with a robot in the back seat and Captain America riding escort at Pepper's behest. What could possibly go wrong?
Notes: Once upon a time, FedEx lost a satellite that Nakki was trying to ship. Once found, she sent some students to retrieve it in an epic technological road trip. I decided the only thing better than road trip with satellite would be road trip with robot, and here we are.

Including that time Tony called Odin a pretentious prick to his face.

I am happy -- kind of -- to present to you my 2012 edition of Works No Longer In Progress. Super-short fics, fics I'm never going to finish, and odds and ends that didn't fit anywhere else.

Title: Trustworthy
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Rhodey and Antonia, through the years.
Notes: This is a "timestamp" or side-story written for mremre, who did me a solid and requested an Ironsides story with Tony and Rhodey. It got to be a bit of a babyfic, but I'm surprisingly okay with that.

Title: Black AmEx
Rating: PG (Gen)
Summary: Bruce isn't sure he wants to use a credit card Tony gave him. Steve isn't sure he even knows how.
Notes: Mageflower kept posting images of Mark Ruffalo, which made me realize that appearance-wise he oscillates between "indigent" and "fashion model" with absolutely no inbetween. I thought that was a pretty good inspiration for a fic.

10th-Aug-2012 08:55 pm - DC Comics: Victory Bonds
Alternate Universe
Title: Victory Bonds
Rating: PG (for profanity)
Summary: The year is 1947, and Daily Planet front-pagers Clark Kent and "Louis" Lane are about to get the story of their careers, courtesy of the fledgling Justice League: the enigmatic Superman, the spy-turned-vigilante codenamed Bat, intelligence agent and newly minted Green Lantern Alan Scott, and Ambassador Diana, Princess of Themyscira.
Warnings: This story is set in postwar America, where DC characters have been recast as soldiers, Rosies, Nazis, Holocaust survivors, and spies. There are mentions of PTSD, discussion of Nazi death camps, insignia, and ideology, references to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and brief incidences of anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism. I've tried to faithfully portray the era without getting gratuitous about it.
