Fic Index

Please see my index post over at my dreamwidth fic journal for an index of stories by fandom, or use the tags here. (The index post is now too large to crosspost from Dreamwidth.)

I have written stories in the following fandoms: Few Options, The Kill Point, Supernatural, Stargate: Atlantis, Sons of Anarchy, Eagle of the Ninth and other works by Rosemary Sutcliff, Haven, Firefly, Tolkien, Dark Angel, Miracles, The Magic of Ordinary Days, Jericho and Watership Down.

I generally add tags only for characters who play a significant role in a story, and not for characters who only make a cameo appearance and don't contribute significantly to advancing the plot. Where there are a large number of charcters who each have small but fairly critical roles in advancing the plot, I use the ensemble cast/secondary characters tag.

While everything I post is "read at own risk", I do aim to warn for the major categories of physical violence, sexual violence and major character death, and indicate that no warnings are necessary if none of these apply. (This is broadly in line with AO3's system of warnings; I'd also warn for underage, but I don't think I've ever written any.) Sometimes I forget to include warnings, so please let me know if you think a warning should be included. Ratings are based on typical British values for what is appropriate for each age; this means I'm more likely to rate high for violence than for sexual content or language.

Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Temple Street Productions/Bell Media/Universal Cable Productions/Space/SyFy series Killjoys. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.

Title: Turning Point
Fandom: Earth 2
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 1135
Summary: Devon is angry at the world, for the reasons all seventeen year olds are angry at the world and for a few reasons all of her own.
Disclaimer: These stories are based on the Amblin Entertainment/Universal Television series Earth 2. They were written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from them nor was any infringement of copyright intended.
Author's Note: Written as a Yuletide treat for Lilly Rose, who wanted to see Devon Adair: juvenile delinquent. Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for the beta.

Devon rolled her eyes and, heaving a deliberately audible sigh, flopped down. )

Title: The Arrow Affair
Fandom: Who Killed Cock Robin? (Fairytales and Folktales)
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 2,800
Summary: When Thomas "Cock" Robin is murdered in an unusual fashion, Inspector Rousette must follow the trail that leads to the murderer.
Author's Note: Based on the traditional nursery rhyme Who Killed Cock Robin? and this retelling. Written for [community profile] once_upon_fic as a treat for [personal profile] evilmuffins, who said "I'd love to see this framed as a Victorian murder mystery, with the animal characters being represented as humans instead." This ended up set in the 1920s, as I'm more familiar with those stories (and owe a great debt here to Josephine Tey's Inspector Grant), but I hope satisfies the desire to see this retold in something like the form of an English Country House Murder Mystery. Thanks to my usual beta.

Inspector Rousette pulled back the sacking and surveyed the body with a keen eye. )

Title: The Midnight Cat
Fandom: The Boy Who Drew Cats (Fairytales and Folktales)
Rating: General

Summary: Tōyō discovers why he's never seen his drawings come to life before—and how to summon his cats to him again.
Author's Note: Written for [community profile] once_upon_fic for [personal profile] silveradept and based on this version of the traditional folktale. Some versions of the tale suggest the boy in the story was the noted artist Sesshū Tōyō.

Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for the beta.

The morning sun was shining on the cats Tōyō had drawn.... )

Title: For what shall it profit a woman

Rating: General
Word Count: 15340 words
Summary: As Dutch tries to pick up the pieces after the coup on Qresh and the destruction of Westerly, Khlyen makes her an offer she can't refuse. But that doesn't mean she has to play by his rules.
Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Temple Street Productions/Bell Media/Universal Cable Productions/Space/SyFy series Killjoys. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes:Written for [personal profile] spook_me and the creature prompt "disease", with one of my picture prompts encouraging me to increase the body horror aspect. The title is a partial (mis)quote of the Biblical text: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for helping me iron out the plot and for the beta.

Author's Notes:My take on Dutch and Johnny's first meeting, based on the various hints dropped throughout season 1. Strong chance of it becoming non-canon-compliant when we get the next canon snippet about their meeting. Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for the beta.

So here, finally, is part 2 of my report (part 1 here) on the couple of weeks I spent with [personal profile] scribblesinink last autumn. (Changing to a new computer and taking a long time to get my photo management system back in place was one reason for the delay. Spending way too much time learning languages was another. Plus, you know, boring things like work....)

On to the photos and some details on the rest of the places we visited.

I didn't get around to doing a fic round-up in the middle of the year, so this covers the whole of 2014.

My aims for the year were to write my first novel-length story of 60,000 words or more (I'd previously written a c. 46,000 word novella) and to meet my [community profile] inkingitout target of 125,000 words written and, ideally, also posted during the year. I also expected to follow my usual pattern of writing in one or two new fandoms during the year.

I managed to produce and post the novel-length story (c. 65,000 words) and ended up writing 154,820 "new" words, according to the daily totals I've been tracking, although I only posted around 105,000 words. The not-yet posted words are mostly in two WIPs: the first two and a half chapters of the story I thought was going to be this year's novel, which is the only thing I didn’t carry to completion (yet!) and nearly 30,000 words of a WIP (all written since 18 November!) that started off as a small, silly what-if plotbunny and just grew and grew, and is practically writing itself.

In August, I also managed to complete a streak of writing new words every day for a whole year. Since then, I've had a few days where I haven't produced “new words” but I have done substantial work on editing or plotting stories. That really helps with bumping up the word count and getting things finished, and also with feeling more confident in my abilities every time I sit down to write - the blank page is not quite such a big deal any more!

During the year, I wrote stories for the [community profile] fixitstory and [community profile] casestory big bangs, the Haven Troublesfest exchange, for [community profile] sutcliff_swap and for the commentfic challenge just before it, and for [personal profile] spook_me. I also wrote a lot of fills for prompts at [community profile] fic_promptly, where I had fun taking part in some of the challenge weeks and winning some very pretty badges.

The two new fandoms this year were Dawn Wind (Rosemary Sutcliff) and Farscape. If Haven was the new fandom that hijacked 2013, Farscape was the one that completely steamrollered 2014. Around two thirds of both total words written and total words posted were devoted to Farscape stories, including the novel. Thank you, [personal profile] scribblesinink for giving me the Farscape DVD box set for Christmas 2013. I think we can both agree it was one of the most successful presents of all time. :-)

On to the stories:

Farscape – 18 stories – 71,930 words )

Earth 2 – 2 stories – 1,735 words )

Haven – 10 stories – 22,055 words )

Jericho – 2 stories – 2710 words )

Works of Rosemary Sutcliff – 2 stories – 2,155 words )

Supernatural – 2 stories – 530 words )

Dark Angel – 1 story – 225 words )

Crossovers – 1 story – 1,105 words )

Most links go to Dreamwidth but my stories are also available at [archiveofourown.org profile] tanaqui.

Thanks, as always, to [personal profile] scribblesinink for cheerleading and betaing everything. And for being my evil enabler....

Title: His Sister's Legacy
Fandom: Farscape
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 65,305 words

Summary: A "mundane AU" inspired by the "Unconventional Courtship" challenge.

Inheriting half of his late sister’s company means John Crichton is now Aeryn Sun’s business partner – to their mutual dismay!

Working together to keep Moya Enterprises out of the hands of a rival corporation run by Herr Skorpinski, they are forced to confront their growing attraction. Then John discovers that Aeryn promised his sister that she’d do anything—anything at all—to keep the company hers—and that there's a lot else she hasn't told him.

John doesn’t want a relationship based on cold-hearted calculation or half-truths. But can he trust that Aeryn's feelings for him are real?

Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Jim Henson Company/Nine Network/Hallmark Entertainment/A&E series Farscape. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes: The story is set during the same timeframe as canon i.e. it begins in 1999. However, to allow for the backstories I've developed for John and Aeryn in this alternate universe, both have been aged up by about ten years from their ages in canon and are now both around 40. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] scribblesinink for the cheerleading, brainstorming and beta services.

This story is too long to post easily on LJ without dividing it into awkwardly broken parts. It has been posted on AO3 and Dreamwidth, so please follow the links to read it at one of those places.
