Slowly but surely, a lot of my fanfic is beginning to reappear on the internets, thanks to the OTW and the Archive of Our Own. Now, before you get excited, allow me to point you toward that first word! To rephrase whatever your favorite story is, I will get to it, I promise. But because it's taking me some time to input everything and choose my tags and all that (seriously, the tags and labels are going to *kick my ass* on some of this stuff -- Teen and Up or Mature? Mature or Explicit? M/M or gen? Do incidental pairings go in the pairings section? No Warnings Apply or Choose Not to Warn? Is this a *graphic* depiction of violence, or just the regular kind?) Also, some of this stuff I haven't read myself in two years or more, so there's stuff I don't even remember about it until I read the thing! And I haven't even begun to figure out what to do with series and collections.

But the fun part of all this (other than getting to reread my own work from years ago) is that I can just randomly decide what I feel like adding when. I'm trying to kind of mix up the Wildly Popular stuff with the more oddball pieces and maybe even kind of press forward gen things and minor-pairing and minor-fandom things that some of the very sweet people who've been waiting all this time to see my stories again (thank you all for your nice notes!) might be interested in but didn't know about.

Here is what's available as of this very moment:

13 O'Clock SGA -- A super-straightforward and basic cuteness-and-light Rodney/Ronon comedy-romance. 5,000 words, the very definition of short and sweet.

And Dark Our Celebration Was Smallville -- A nice angsty bit of Clark/Lex. It was futurefic in 2002 when I wrote it; dunno what the hell it is now, except rather bleak. I really like the way the Chloe/Clark friendship turned out in this.

As He's In It due South -- I seriously lack the brevity gene; I write long, and the older I get, the longer I write. This is really anomalous for me, a 1440 word story that feels complete unto itself. I don't know where I came from, but I like it -- it makes me feel like I can do concise! Which, let's face it, I really cannot.

De Profundis SGA -- This has to be the last or close to the last complete SGA story I finished before my fic sabbatical. It's sort of OT4 and sort of Rodney/Ronon and John/Teyla, but the emotional thread that runs through it actually skews John/Rodney, so basically, it's just a vat of teaminess. Team stew. The sex is pretty non-explicit, though, so it's not *that* kind of OT4, sadly. People told me this one was depressing, but I never really saw it that way! It makes me feel all warm inside.

The Fortune-Teller Firefly -- Technically a crossover, in that the titular (heh heh) fortune-teller is Tara from BtVS, but it's from Kaylee's POV and really reads like a Firefly story. It's a nice, gentle, family-friendly piece of f/f that I particularly like because the brief bits of all the rest of Serenity's crew feel very on-point to me. Post-Serenity and compliant with that canon.

Handsome Johnny SGA -- This is my big, gen Aiden Ford story. There's some queer content to it, but it's not a relationship story of any kind, and it really just came from me thinking, somewhere in S1 or S2, about how the US military on Atlantis might feel about the fact that the show takes place in the middle of a war that they've been tapped out of. One of many things I wish the show had brought up, because I feel sure it would've been on a lot of characters' minds.

Hope Chest due South -- Francesca gen. I've always had a wildly unreasonable love for Francesca. This was a flashfic (the prompt was "jewelry," I believe) that I ended up using to try putting some kind of context on her obsession with Fraser, which a lot of people think of as kind of a cheap joke, but always felt very poignant to me, because isn't the subtext of the show always that Franny is sort of stupid for not realizing that she's not good enough for Fraser? From one perspective, I get tense with the show for using what treads very near to misogyny and classism to score laughs off the girl who thinks she's somebody when she's not -- but on the other hand, that's exactly why I like her so much. Because Francesca is someone who hasn't yet surrendered her belief that she *is* somebody, or at least that she could be, in a world that doesn't feed that message back to her very often. I think she's kind of heroic.

I Love My Love Thoughtcrimes -- A rare attempt to include a rock-em-sock-em crime plot in my usual moping around about relationships. I really wish they'd made this into a show, because I really adore both the main characters and their actors. The movie and this story put me in touch with my inner Mulder/Scully shipper, or rather, the Mulder/Scully shipper I would've been if I hadn't been pretty sure it would strangle the show. This also has the distinction of being my only full-on het story with explicit sex and everything. So now I can say I dabble in heterosexuality. As a writer, that is.

Metropolis Girls Smallville -- Chloe/Lana/Lex, and just porn all the hell over the place. I'd really wanted for a long time to write a girl-on-girl-performed-for-boy story that wasn't exploitative, just to see if I could do it, and I feel like I did. Chloe is magical like that! The primary pairing is Chloe/Lana, but there's a strong Lana/Lex element to it, which I guess I should warn for, because I know some people are allergic to it. So there you go.

Quarterlife Veronica Mars -- Eli/Logan futurefic. This is the goddamn sweetest kicking-the-crap-out-of-each-other story that I could possibly devise. It's also the only kinky PWP in a broom closet I've ever read that's actually about getting old.

So, yeah. Other stories will continue to appear! Next up: Fourteen Years, Daughters of Jerusalem, East O the Sun West O the Moon, Satisfaction -- all this and more, yay.

While all y'all were arguing about Adam and Kris, I have to admit that I stopped giving a shit the minute Allison left. So while I like both Kris Allen and For Your Entertainment well enough, what I'm saying is,


Aaand, off to listen.
