Frantic bit of a thing that came out of nowhere. I wanted Thawne vs Zoom, and by now we all know how caught up I am with Cisco, Harry, and the history with Thawne. So. Um. Apologies in advance.

Fix-it (sort of) for certain aspects of Ep 2x13. I just need this. Warning in advance, in case of confusion with Ray Palmer, E-2 Martin thinks of his Ronnie as 'Raymond'.

Again, for a kink meme prompt. I apologise for the spam the last few days, by the way, I'm just having a rough week in work and apparently writing about post-apocalyptic robot detectives is soothing to me. Um. Also. The story features the Stranger as a possibly immortal mission-oriented serial killer slash minor eldritch abomination. I don't know that much about the Mysterious Stranger, not having played the games, this is just based on whatever info I could find on various wikis plus some random insanity. Apologies in advance.

Title: The Lights of their Eyes
Rating: Light R
Fandom: Fallout 4, Fallout
Characters/Pairings: Nick Valentine, the Mysterious Stranger, brief cameos by M!SS and Piper. Nick Valentine/The Mysterious Stranger
Summary: Nick Valentine finally catches up with the Mysterious Stranger. The confrontation doesn't really go any way he might have thought to expect. Turns out the Stranger finds being seen rather ... intriguing
Wordcount: 4542
Warnings/Notes: Prompt fic, shaky canon knowledge, robots/androids, detectives, immortal serial killers, chases, confrontations, anger, fascination, touching, kissing
Disclaimer: Not mine

Slightly late for Halloween, but I thought I do a bit of an expansion of my little 100 word drabble The Wanderer. I'm still in a bit of a ghostly mood.

Title: Cainsford Fourteen Miles
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Original Work (Suitcase Wanderers universe)
Characters/Pairings: Sandra, Anna, Ephraim, the White Lady. Anna & Ephraim
Summary: The Cainsford Fourteen, the last stretch of road into Cainsford, has been haunted for years. Everyone who drives the 19A, the night route into town, knows that good and well. This time, though, Sandra has a passenger aboard who might be able to help
Wordcount: 6035
Warnings/Notes: Ghosts, haunted roads, white ladies, skeletons, bodies, violence, protection, closure, moving on, moving forward, hopeful ending
Claimer: This one's mine

A tiny thing based on that footnote in 'Seventeen Dead Neapolitans', the one with John Uskglass, Henry Barbatus, Willian of Lanchester and Thomas of Dundale, because it has an amazing amount of implied horror and anger and grief in it.

Title: Gravefrost and Wormwood
Rating: R, but mostly by implication
Fandom: Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (bookverse)
Characters/Pairings: Thomas of Dundale, William of Lanchester, discussed John Uskglass and Henry Barbatus. Little bit of Thomas/William, maybe
Summary: William of Lanchester and Thomas of Dundale, after their King has cast them from the room in order to continue interrogating Henry Barbatus, while horror, grief and anger carry them away
Wordcount: 2371
Warnings/Notes: Um. Grave robbing, resurrection, interrogation of a(n aware) corpse, violence towards said corpse, anger, rage and horror as a result of same. Wow that little footnote had a lot to work with in two paragraphs.

Random thing. I've been trying for Strange/Childermass for a while.

Title: Lightly Hold the Rein
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (TV)
Characters/Pairings: Jonathan Strange, John Childermass, Gilbert Norrell, mention of Arabella Strange and Jeremy Johns. Strange/Childermass, Childermass/Norrell, Jonathan/Arabella
Summary: Vampire AU. When Jonathan is forced to go for some time without feeding, Norrell grudgingly allows that he might drink from Childermass this once. Childermass takes this very much in stride, though it would not be true to say that he surrenders to it. That, he offers to only one vampire
Wordcount: 5058
Warnings/Notes: AU, Vampires, Blood Hunger, Feeding, Master & Servant, Backstory, Angst, Control, Defiance, Challenge, Surrender, Victory, Loyalty, Love
Disclaimer: Not Mine

A small addendum to The King's Roads that got rather long on me. I wanted h/c in the aftermath of the previous story, Childermass and Grant's journey north and everyone's fear/grief over it. I wanted post-apocalyptic family feels, mostly. What I ended up with was angry Emma, unconscious Childermass, and poor Major Grant getting yelled at a bit. And family feels. Heh. My apologies to all. Venturing a little towards Emma/Segundus/Childermass, with Jonathan/Arabella and possibly hints of Jonathan/Arabella/undead!Grant as well. Because I'm cracked. Maybe hints of Stephen/Vinculus too.

Title: The King's Roads: Family Disputes
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (TV)
Characters/Pairings: Emma Wintertowne, John Segundus, John Childermass, Mr Honeyfoot, Stephen Black, Vinculus, Arabella Strange, Major Grant, Walter Pole, mention of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

Summary: In which there are unconscious spies, angry warriors, sheepish undead majors, much hurt/comfort and the odd threat of shooting
Wordcount: 4102
Warnings/Notes: Post-Apocalyptic AU, mentions of past horrors, mention of loss of limbs, hurt/comfort, anger, families of choice, protectiveness, relief
Disclaimer: Not mine

This was written (somewhat hastily) for a prompt on the kink meme, which I have just discovered and which makes me very happy. This was possibly not exactly to the prompt, as I never got as far as the Raven King's return, but I hope it's not too far wrong.

Title: The King's Roads
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (TV)
Characters/Pairings: Ensemble. Emma Pole, John Segundus, Stephen Black, John Childermass, Arabella Strange, Mr Honeyfoot, Vinculus, Colquhoun Grant, Walter Pole, mention of Jonathan Strange, Gilbert Norrell, the Raven King, original faeries, original monsters
Summary: More than magic has come through the mirrors, and England has fallen to terror and ruin in the spaces between the worlds. In Last Hope, the last free citadel in the North, the survivors search for some means to push back the monstrous armies, and may have found it in the charnel house that was once London

I am beginning to realise how much I really, really, really love the darker kinds of passion in fic. (Shush, yes, I know I should probably have figured that out well before now). Looking back over my fic, it's kind of obvious that I really do like the more savage side of love.

I don't play the game, but someone who does showed me all the 'Meet The Team' videos, and this has been niggling at me ever since 'Meet the Medic'. It is, please pardon the language, fucked up beyond belief. I have never written anything like this before, and I sort of don't know what to do with it. So. Ah. Warnings in advance, heed all the warnings, and I'm so very sorry.

Title: The Tell-Tale Heart
Rating: HARD R
Fandom: Team Fortress 2
Characters/Pairings: Heavy, Medic, Heavy/Medic
Summary: "Do you know ze first time I saw my own heart, Heavy?" Medic offers Heavy an utterly horrifying demonstration of adoration, as only Medic can
Wordcount: 4015
Warnings/Notes: GORE, BODY HORROR, MEDICAL EXPERIMENTATION, MEDICAL TORTURE. Backstory, World War II, mention of the camps. Horror, romance, love, declarations of love.

Following from Old Blood and New. There's a lot of the Morte D'Arthur version in this, but essentially I'm picking whichever bits/versions of the mythology will be the most angsty. *grins sheepishly*

Title: Sins of the Father
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: The Librarians (2014), Arthurian Myth
Characters/Pairings: Jenkins, Dulaque, Jake Stone, mention of Morgan Le Fay, Guinevere and Arthur. Jenkins & Dulaque, Lancelot/Guinevere, Jenkins & Jake
Summary: Jenkins receives a second unwelcome caller in as many weeks, and after what happened with Morgan he's not sure he can bear it. The news of what happened isn't something Dulaque can leave unanswered, however. No matter how many grudges, old and new, are dredged up in the process. At least Jake is there to ease the aftermath.
Wordcount: 5658
Warnings/Notes: Discussion of bastard sons, betrayal, rape, civil war ... all the fun stuff from Arthurian myth. In the present, a fractured father-son relationship, hurt/comfort, angst
Disclaimer: Not mine

The Jenkins/Galahad, Lancelot/Dulaque, Lucinda McCabe/Morgan Le Fay thing is obviously still in my head, and I'm still kind of in the mood for Jenkins!whump. So. Um. Yes. You get something dark and horrible drawing on Arthurian myth?

Title: Old Blood and New
Rating: R
Fandom: The Librarians (2014), Arthurian Myth
Characters/Pairings: Jenkins, Morgan le Fay, Eve, Flynn, Ezekiel, Cassandra, Jake, mention of Lancelot. Jenkins & Team (especially Ezekiel & Eve), unrequited Morgan/Lancelot, implied Eve/Flynn
Summary: Morgan Le Fay had waited a long time to find Galeas again. A long time, for old debts and old vengeances to come due. She knows where he is, now. There is still a price to be paid for a parent's sin. Whether his little Librarians can pick up the pieces once it's paid is another story altogether.
Wordcount: 7952
Warnings/Notes: Past rape, present coerced kissing, angst, vengeance, hurt/comfort, protectiveness, anger, families of choice, hope

I was thinking that Jareth makes a very good femme fatale. And that's a role that rarely ends well for anyone.

Title: Sweet the Sting
Rating: PG-13

For a prompt of [ profile] comment_fic. A tiny little military horror story on the theme of darkness. I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge of the military, its ranking system or its tactics.

Title: Kingdom of the Blind
Rating: Light R

Characters/Pairings: The Lieutenant, the Sergeant, the Corporal. Team.
Summary: Three men, remnants of a military unit, are caught in a pitch-black base when they begin to realise that their previous understanding of their circumstances may have been ... somewhat off

Title: Where The World Grows Thin
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Person of Interest
Characters/Pairings: John Reese, Harold Finch, Supernatural Creatures, Nathan Ingram. John/Harold
Summary: There was something off about Finch. He wasn't another werewolf, wasn't an undead, wasn't anything John could pin down, but there was something wrong about him, and John knew it. He just hadn't imagined quite how wrong it might be, or how much it might cost. Dark paranormal AU
Wordcount: 3200
Warnings/Notes: AU, paranormal elements, death, sacrifice, omens/portents/premonitions

Something that appeared after watching 1x05, "Closer Than Sisters".

Title: Do Not Go Gentle
Rating: R
Fandom: Penny Dreadful (2014)
Characters/Pairings: Vanessa Ives, Ethan Chandler. Vanessa/Ethan, discussion of Ethan/Brona, Ethan/Dorian, Vanessa/Peter, Vanessa/Mina.
Summary: "Let me walk with you, Miss Ives." And he didn't understand, of course, didn't know what he was asking, but Vanessa had not the strength to save him. Not in the face of temptation, transgression. She was never strong enough for that
Wordcount: 2565
Warnings/Notes: Darkness, horror, possession, love, weakness & strength, transgression, temptation. Also, working on the theory/speculation that Ethan's monster is something like a werewolf, and Vanessa's is something infinitely more terrible. Title from the Dylan Thomas poem.
Disclaimer: Not mine

Originally for a prompt on [ profile] comment_fic that went sideways on me. Essentially what happens when I throw Norse Mythology, the Terminator, time travel, magical robots, and a prompt of 'Tony/Loki: fire and ice' in a blender with added Jane Foster. Um. Results may be questionable at best? My apologies in advance -_-;

Title: Ginnungagap
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Avengers movieverse
Characters/Pairings: Tony Stark, Loki, Jane Foster, Hel. Tony/Loki/Jane
Summary: In a dark future, in a galaxy overrun by unstoppable alien invaders, Tony, Loki and Jane are the last remnants of the resistance. Huddled in a cave on a distant world, they ready themselves to throw magic and science into a last desperate act of vengeance, and a faint hope for the survival of some other world. Or, an engineer, an astrophysicist and an alien magician at the end of the galactic rope, and ready to strike back.

Warnings/Notes: Dystopian AU Futurefic, with time travel, galactic conquest, love/hate, relationships formed in the face of certain death, AIs, golems and vengeance -_-;
