Flower is a good teammate who doesn't mind playing backup. He's trying, anyway.

I have in the past week said I couldn't write PWPs or poly for exchanges, and then I got this flash fic exchange assignment and proceeded to do both. In three days. For 4300 words.

It has the kind of flaws that a fic is going to have when you write it in three days, but also it engages with RL events and with how I see these people in ways that I don't manage to get at very often in this fandom, and I'm just really freaking pleased with it. It's my favorite thing I've posted so far this year.

Also it's got kinky worldbuilding not really indicated in the tags, if you're into that.

The problem is that a new dress always makes him a little giddy, secretly, in the bottom of his stomach. A new dress he loves this much overwhelms all his better judgment.

Fact about me: when I see a prompt on the kinkmeme involving a team captain, very often I want to fill it with Chara. It's sheer contrariness on my part.

So I wrote this one Sunday morning on a lark. The title and prompt are inspired by Captain Shakespeare from Stardust, if that's an incentive.

Rating / Words: 650 words / R for blood and general nastiness
Contents / Warnings: violence, blood, death of children, possession, self-harm, noncon arousal, sexist slurs
Spoilers: through S2 Born Under a Bad Sign
Summary: This is no well-broke ride; this pony tries to take the bit every damn time, and it’s a tight rein Meg keeps.

A/N: Written for [ profile] quickreaver as part of a prompt subversion challenge for [ profile] spnspiration. My prompt was any variation of Sam and Meg - "Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars,". However, I think this might be a subversion only in the sense that no one is going to understand how it relates to the prompt at all. :\ I swear I had this whole thing about Sam doing the thing he does here and how it related to love, but then the horse metaphor took over. :P Can we pretend I was subverting a prompt for pony play?

snickfic: Meg Cas kiss closeup (Meg Cas)
[community profile] trickortreatex authors are revealed! I wrote five things, which I'm lumping here all in one post for convenience. I had a lot of fun playing in basically all my fandoms, especially since the Buffy characters I want to write usually aren't eligible for exchanges.

However, out of the bunch I definitely had a couple of favorites: the hockey fic (which at 4k feels absurdly long for a treat in a 300 word exchange, but oh well) and the steampunk Meg/Castiel. Because, you know, steampunk Meg/Castiel. Even if the fic doesn't really have a plot, as such.

When In Doubt, Set It On Fire - hockey RPF, Crosby/Ovechkin, 4000 words
First Sidney tells Alex Consol's ice is cursed. Then he says he has a plan to fix it. Then he stops talking to Alex very much at all, and that's when Alex starts to get worried. -- More monster-y than actual horror, it turned out. Oh well.

bright wings - SPN, Meg/Castiel, 1200 words
Castiel has metal wings. Meg has an oil can. -- AKA the steampunk fic. :DDD

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship - SPN, Meg + Bela friendship, 700 words
Meg goes to hell in search of loyal subjects. She thinks she may have found one. -- A treat for [ profile] gryfndor_godess, with bonus Meg kvetching of Crowley's redecorating scheme. :D

Enough to Make a Girl Feel All Gooey - BtVS, Buffy/Faith, 500 words
Buffy told Faith to stay in Cleveland. Yeah, right. -- A treat for [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni, theoretically an AU of the Wishverse. Yes, an AU of the AU. Hush.

Natasha thought about the places she’d like to hide, given a choice. She ordered them by practicality, and she started at the bottom. -- My first MCU fic! Behold!
snickfic: Jess (Jess)
Title: worn for sleeping
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing/Characters: Jess, Sam
Words/Rating: 1300 words / PG rating
Spoilers: through 5.21
Summary: It takes three tubes of paint – three shades carelessly selected, though when she finishes Jess sees each one is progressively more red – to write Sam’s name on the wall.

A/N: And here is my [ profile] spn_summergen fic, written for TammyRenH! One of her prompts involved Jess, and I knew immediately it was the one I had to write, but the most important conceit to this fic didn't occur to me until later.

I worried a little that it might be too shippy for Summergen, but no one complained, so I guess I was sufficiently low key about the ship. And the meta aspect wasn't planned at all and snuck in completely on its own.

I maaay write some author commentary on it. First I have to go answer the lovely comments, though. :D

snickfic: half-portrait of Natasha (art by Noto) (Natasha)
So it turned out I wrote two stories for Beyond Panels.

Open Road, Captain America comics, Natasha+Bucky
A post-apocalyptic road trip amnesiafic? Because why not? I had much bigger aspirations for this fic, but this is what I ended up with. It's, shall we say, largely a mood experiment. Or something.

Safe House, Black Widow comics, Natasha+Ana
This is very much a slice-of-life, between-the-scenes kind of fic for the new Edmondson/Noto volume of Black Widow. That book is 90% of Natasha on the job in foreign locales and 10% of her at home in a large, bare apartment in Little Ukraine, NYC. This fic flips those percentages. I ended up being pretty happy with it in terms of capturing Natasha's perspective in the canon, and also because I got to write female friendship in it, which makes me happy.

I think by and large these two fics demonstrate that I'm just ever so much happier if I'm working within or pushing against the confines of some specific canon, especially when I first start writing a new canon. It's only later when I become more comfortable with my own interpretation that I can relax my attention to canon detail and start exploring with big AUs and things.

Title: Death (of Rats) Takes a Holiday
Fandom: Discworld
Characters: Quoth the Raven, Death of Rats, A'Tuin
Spoilers: Uses geographical info derived from The Colour of Magic / The Light Fantastic, but should read just fine for anyone familiar with the characters.
Summary: Quoth the Raven takes a holiday with the Death of Rats, sees new sights, and acquires a taste for elephant fleas. Also there's a cat.

My first Discworld fic! Gah, writing in new fandoms is always stressful, especially prose fandoms. I ended up liking this okay, though, even though I wrote it in one evening after I realized that I had misjudged the [ profile] rarecharacters deadline by TWO WEEKS. (This is also my excuse for the title and the summary.) Half the plot sort of inspired by a fortuitous reread of Cordwainer Smith's story "A Game of Rat and Dragon."

snickfic: Sam Dean at door to bunker (SD batcave)
Title: Where Owls Dwell
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Sam, Dean
Words / Rating: 2400 / PG-13
Warnings: horror, implied gore
Spoilers: through 8.14
Summary: Everyone dreams about flying, right?

A/N: here it is at last, my [ profile] spn_summergen story for [ profile] amber1960. I angsted over this until the very last possible moment; I think I finished editing it like 20 minutes before the deadline. It is not really my usual fare, and I think I am still too close to it to tell whether I like it. Perhaps I'll come back next year and be impressed.

Also available at AO3 here.

( You’d think Sam would know better than to touch anything in the batcave whose provenance he was in any way unclear on. )
snickfic: Meg Cas kiss closeup (Meg Cas)
We'll see if I manage to follow through and rec things all week, but for now, here are my favorites for the first few days (with the caveat that I read very little Sam/Dean and am unlikely to rec porn unless it's also got good character stuff I like).

Please note that all these are anonymous! Author reveals don't happen until later. Also, they're all under 2500 words.

It's Always Sunny in Area 51 - Dean+Cas, PG-13
Military/SF AU, in which Dean gets lost in the military complex known as Area 51 and runs into a nerdy scientist type with zero socials skills. Neat Dean+Sam dynamic, too, and the final image is great.

We Are Only Free Inside These Walls - Meg/Castiel, R
Every so often, Meg and Castiel play hookey from their respective duties and meet in the middle. A far future fic with some neat angel/demon ship aspects to it. Also, hairbrushing. I really like the interplay between them here.

Devil's Luck - Sam/Dean, PG-13
LADYHAWKE AU, YOU GUYS. From an OC demon's perspective in second person POV, which I realize will lose some people, but this is SO GREAT. It's dark but not too dark, the narrator voice is great, the slow unfolding of what's happening is great. For those concerned about the ship, it reads as basically gen expect for one line of implied Sam/Dean. It's great fun, y'all.

A Thin Veneer - J2, PG-13
FBI AU, in which Jared got stuck in white collar crimes years ago on account of freezing in action, and now is the one-man welcome wagon for the guy just coming out from deep undercover. This fic is mostly character, and very nicely done character work it is, too. The slow development of Jared's relationship with Jensen and the emotion of the finish really worked for me.

The Wall Between Us - ART, Dean+Cas, NSFW (gore)
Dean may or may not have acquired a pet komodo dragon in purgatory. One way or the other, the giant lizard in the picture no doubt explains why Dean is holding a corpse by its hair. Great composition, very dramatic lighting, this fic invites all sorts of stories to explain it.

When You Put It Like That - ART, Victor+Bela, SFW
Noir AU! W00t! Is he the world-weary cop doing what he can in a city full of scum? Is she the sticky-fingered moll who sometimes gifts him with information sometimes? They snark a lot, but neither of them ever mention that one incident when they got drunk together after a gunfight...

Title: Red-Headed Stepchild
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Lilith, Abaddon
Words / Rating: 1100 words / G
Spoilers: through 8.12
Warnings: blatant misuse of historical religious tradition (so, like the show, basically)
Summary: Being the story of how Abaddon became the last surviving Night of Hell.

Available on AO3 here.

A/N: Look, I can still write fic! Genfic, even! This was 100% prompted by the belief that Night of Hell is a much, much cooler title than Knight of Hell. Sometimes, spelling is everything.

I stole a number of names here from Binsfield's Classification of Demons and used them for my own purposes.

There are seven nights in hell, and worse than nights.  )
snickfic: (Yuletide)
Polysemy (3071 words) by Snickfic
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Railsea - China Mieville, MIEVILLE China - Works
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Abacat Naphi/OFC
Characters: Abacat Naphi

She stands on deck, weight shifting as natural as breathing with each nickitut nickitut of wheels on rails, & she shields her eyes with her hand – her natural one, made of meat not metal – & you ask, out of what stock does one begin to whittle Abacat Naphi?


Finally, after years of wanting to write Miveille fic, this year I did: a treatfic about Captain Naphi from Mieville's newest, Railsea. Naphi is the (female) Captain Ahab figure in a novel that in the end does not look very much like Moby Dick. She's rather an enigma, in terms of motivation, and she is fabulous.

I ended up working in my fascination for the novel's concept of a "philosophy": a driving force, a motivating principle embodied by some particular, huge animal that one is trying to kill. In Naphi's case, it's the gargantuan pale mole Mocker-Jack, Mole of Many Meanings. This is not, it seems to me, so very much unlike the Church of God Kraken's worship in Kraken (another Mieville novel which I otherwise mostly disliked). It's got that same idea of attaching personal metaphysical significance to elements of nature.

The fic's also notable for being my first honest-to-goodness femslash, of Naphi/OFC, although the basic thrust of the fic is more character study than romance. (I notice that I tend to be very lady-centric for Yuletide; all of them have at least one significant woman, even if I had to invent her myself - I also tend to invent OCs for Yuletide - and most have no male characters at all.)
snickfic: (Downton Abbey)
Title: Nativity
Fandom: Downton Abbey
Characters / Pairings: Thomas, Sybil, background Sybil/Branson
Words / Rating: 1700 words / PG
Spoilers: Through the Christmas special. The fic is inspired by certain S3 events, but it cheerfully disregards all S3 canon.
Warnings: shameless fix-it fic; zero research of the contemporary Irish political/economic climate, which I've bent to my own purposes
Summary: Thomas follows Sybil and Branson to Ireland to try his entrepreneurial hand again and perhaps stir up a little political trouble while he's at it. Which is how he comes to be on the run with pregnant Sybil Branson and the only person on hand when she goes into labor. Lucky him.

A/N: I'll say this for a certain episode of S3: it stirred up all these Sybil/Thomas friendship feelings I didn't even know I had. This is the result. I'm fairly sure I have Downton Abbey fic ideas that don't involve babies, but none of those seem to get written. Oh, well.

It’s a shut-up flat they find themselves in, only two streets over from the Bransons’ own. )
snickfic: (Dean)
Title: The Only Cure for Grief
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Jimmy Novak, Dean, Sam
Rating / Word Count: PG-13 / 5500 words
Warnings: Character deaths major, minor, and implied (but all prior to the beginning of the fic)
Summary: The apocalypse is over, and Jimmy Novak has cobbled together a life now, kind of. The last thing he needs is for Winchesters to come walking back into it. Yet here they are, Sam recovering from demon blood and Dean only recently angel-free, looking for refuge and other things Jimmy doesn’t know how to give.

A/N: This is my [ profile] spn_summergen fic, written for [ profile] sistabro to the prompt Dean said yes. Sam didn't. I... took a fair bit of liberty with that. Originally posted here.

Jimmy’s given up on *normal*, on *safe*, and still the shock when Winchesters turn up on his doorstep again is like a blow to the chest. )

Author: [ profile] snickfic
Artist: [ profile] ladyofthelog / [personal profile] verity
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Characters/Pairings: Jared-Jensen friendship, some Jared/Matt Cohen, Jared/OFC, but the story is basically non-shippy
Genre: high school alpha/beta/omega AU, coming-of-age story
Word Count: 23,000
Rating: R
Contents / Warnings: alpha/beta/omega dynamics, references to knotting and mpreg, masturbation, sex talk ranging from clinical to juvenile, crude and insensitive language, sexual harassment, bullying, extended discussion of intersex genitalia
Note: Takes place in the same universe as (but does not depend on) my other SPN RPF knottingverse fics.

Summary: When Jared goes into heat for the first time, his comfortable high school slacker existence comes to an abrupt halt. Now he’s an omega, which means alphas smell like heaven (exhibit A: Matt Cohen), terrifying senior Katie Cassidy is saving his damsel ass, and the beta girl he’s been crushing on for months suddenly looks more like a sister. Meanwhile Jensen, beta and best friend extraordinaire, is maybe not dealing well with never having been told that Jared was omega.

Special Notes: There are a few people without whom this fic would not be what it is:
* [ profile] ghostyouknow27, who first poked me into signing up with her and then read my drafts, talked me through worldbuilding details, and regularly provided me with much-needed encouragement. Before that, she was the one who talked me into writing a/b/o in the first place; the fact that this universe exists at all is 95% her fault.
* [ profile] ladyofthelog, who not only made me an adorable banner and fanmix available at the art masterpost linked above, but provided invaluable feedback and cheerleading throughout the editing process.
* [ profile] bobthemole, who listened to much venting in the early stages, made helpful suggestions, and helped me coin a word. She knows which it is.
* [personal profile] next_to_normal, who saved me from many very bad titles and inspired the one I finally used.

Words / Rating: 3600 words / PG-13
Warnings / enticements: References rape and sexual harassment. Alpha/beta/omega AU. Very AU. With magic. Hurt/comfort.
Summary: Every so often, Sam and Dean ask Jo to come help them on a case, even though she's an omega. Even though they're alphas, she does.

A/N: You guys, I should just never try to write to a prompt again. I started this for someone over at the kink meme who asked for het a/b/o, any pairing, and I said, "Hmm, I always write alpha females with omega!Sam/Jared; let's do something else." Somehow the result is this, which is indeed SOMETHING ELSE. And also basically gen. /o\

A/N: Inspired by a prompt from [ profile] downjune at the Awesome Ladies Ficathon. This did not really turn out to be quite what downjune asked for, but it wouldn't have been written without her. <3

Ruby was hunkered down in a no-name bar in some no-name town, mentally picking off the juiciest fruit in the place and slitting their throats one by one, when she realized she'd been made. )

A/N: Written for the [ profile] rarewomen fic exchange for [ profile] latenightcuppa. Full masterlist here; most of the fics (including this one) posted to the AO3 collection here. Beta'd by the excellent [ profile] bobthemole, who kept prodding me, "But how does that make Jo feel?" The story is much the better (and 700 words longer) for her assistance.

One of my recipient's suggestions was Jo and Anna on a hunt, and this is where that idea took me. I still have not managed to work out for myself all that Jo does and becomes after she strikes out and becomes a hunter in earnest. This is maybe another piece of that puzzle, though.

A/N: This is one of the things that happens when I'm putting off writing the thing that I'm supposed to be writing: I go rooting around in my files and posting unposted fic. Like this one, which is a much expanded version of my Dawn/Topher drabble Unassuming.

A/N: Hey, look! I still write Buffy fic!

I'm so embarrassed that it's taken me so long to finish this fic. I started it for the 2010-2011 round of [ profile] winter_of_faith, which means the first thousand words of it have been hanging around for more than a year. I sat down and finished it today because [ profile] dulcedeusex was kind enough to rec it - which made me feel guilty all over again - and also because I was tired of writing things I couldn't post yet.

A/N: Written for the fic challenge at the Sam h/c comm [ profile] ohsam , for this prompt by [ profile] rainylemons.

This is for [personal profile] next_to_normal, and heavens, it is so late. After I failed miserably to write the fic she originally prompted me for over a year ago, I asked her for another prompt, and she asked for a TVD fic about a sibling pair and the word 'childhood.' For whatever reason, this is the sibling pair that appealed to me (and had the bonus of being mostly in the first season, so I wasn't missing huge important pieces from the TVD eps I haven't seen yet).

The fic was heavily informed by comments [ profile] gryfndor_godess made in one of her TVD reaction posts about how differently Matt and Vicki are portrayed by the show, and why that might be. Good thoughts, hon!

Thanks much to [personal profile] verity for the once-over and [ profile] ghostyouknow27 for the cheerleading.

Danneel was absolutely certain she was ready for college. )
snickfic: Jo and Ellen Harvelle (Jo)
Title: Returning Prodigals are Last Year's News
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Dean, Jo (potentially pre-Dean/Jo)
Words / Rating: 1k words / PG-13
Spoilers: through 6.11 Appointment in Samarra

A/N: For [ profile] karate0kat in the Fall Fandom Free-For-All. She wanted Jo/Dean some time after 5.10 Abandon All Hope.

I should probably note that this fic is significantly schmoopier than the cut tag suggests.

Dean’s night was actually going okay until the thing showed up wearing Jo’s face. )
snickfic: (Buffy desert)
Title: The Cheese Man Cometh
Characters: Buffy, Xander, Willow, Giles, the Cheese Man
Spoilers: Through 4.22 Restless
Words / Rating: 1400 words / G

A/N. Written for the crackficathon, for the prompt "To prevent the apocalypse, one of the Scoobies must become the Cheese Man's replacement" from [ profile] ffutures, with additional inspiration from [ profile] doyle_sb4's gorgeous Dawn/Cheese Man fic A Girl Made From Sky.

I don't know whether this is the crackiest fic I've ever written, but it is almost certainly the strangest. Uh, enjoy?

At first, it's just cheese. )

Speaking of Dawn being the Key, this is a less-than-a-drabble I wrote for [ profile] pann_cake's Fandom Love (Mini) Ficathon. Now with slight editing. Prompt for which I wrote it is now also the title.

Nothing Beside Remains )
snickfic: (Dawn)
Title: Or Settle on the Far Side of the Sea
Characters: Dawn, Willow
Spoilers: post-NFA
Words / Rating: 370 / G
Summary: In which Dawn starts taking advantage of certain facts about this whole Key thing.

A/N: What is this? Is it...? Can it be fic?

Well, uh, I shall leave that up to you. This was written in twenty minutes in a chat window (plus some editing later) for [personal profile] verity (whom I'm going to see in two weeks!!!) and all I can say about it is that the Snape+Spuffy mpreg crossover now has competition for CRACKIEST THING I HAVE EVER WRITTEN.

It turns out there are perks to being made of green lightning held in some kind of matrix of mystical equilibrium. )

FIC: Balm

snickfic: (Seraphverse)
Title: Balm
Characters: Spike, Buffy, Spike-baby
Words: 850

A/N: That's right, a bit of Seraphverse fic! [ profile] ruuger made me this lovely icon, which seemed excuse enough to polish up this snippet set late S5 in the Seraphverse.

A week or so after the funeral, Spike sat in his scrounged armchair cradling Cora when Buffy came creeping down the stairs. )

FIC: Ritual

snickfic: (Spike-Dawn no good)
So, uh, I wrote SPN fic? When I should have been working on the [ profile] seasonal_spuffy story instead? Oops?

Dean, general S1 spoilers, 150 words

It’s a rule Dean has: wash your hands at the sink farthest from the door. )

FIC: Again

Jan. 23rd, 2011 05:50 pm
snickfic: (Darla)
Title: Again
Words / Rating: 800 words / G
Characters: Darla, Lindsey
Spoilers: Through Ats 2.1 "Judgment"

Written for [ profile] eilowyn in the minor female character round of [ profile] genfic_minis. She requested comfort food, retail therapy, and pet peeves. They're all here, at least in spirit.

The first time Darla rose from the dead, it wasn’t like this. )
snickfic: (River)
Title: The Very Small Girl and the Monster
Words / rating: 2100 words / PG
Fandom: Firefly/BtVS crossover
Characters: River, Spike (w/background Spuffy)
Spoilers: For all of both shows

This is another Christmas/birthday fic, because it's [ profile] penny_lane_42's birthday tomorrow! Happy birthday! The reason it's way longer than most of the giftfics is because I had the idea at least six months ago and it's been sitting around half-written ever since. If the reader is so inclined, it can be considered a sequel-in-spirit to my drabble Auld Lang Syne. (Lauren, do you remember that conversation?)

There are lots of things River still doesn’t tell Simon. )
snickfic: (mood Christmas)
Because it's a little late for Christmas, isn't it? This is for [ profile] rebcake - happy all the holidays, Reb! This took so long because I had a rather longer piece that just would not be molded into fic shape. But here, finally, are Adelle and Giles at an airport. (Uh, let's just assume it's set during the holidays, shall we?)

Rupert Giles, Adelle DeWitt
A Difference in Perspective )
snickfic: (mood Christmas)
Merry Christmas, [ profile] deird1 and [ profile] shapinglight! (Deird, yours may ring some distant bells - it's in answer to a prompt you gave me back in, like, March that I never responded to. :p)

Also included is a drabble I wrote for the (Ex-)Housemate as part of her Christmas; I figured you guys wouldn't mind if I posted it, too.

For [ profile] deird1: Buffy, Faith
Some Burnt, Some Rebuilt )

For [ profile] shapinglight: Spike, Giles, post-"The Gift"
In Many Forms )

For Housemate: Kendra
New Lessons )
snickfic: (mood Christmas)
I meant it as a drabble; it is not. As if Darla doesn't always have her own ideas about things.

Merry Christmas, [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni!

Darla, Giles, circa "Welcome to the Hellmouth"
Double drabble (200 words)
Better When Aged )
