It's basically CoE fix-it fic, because I think everyone in the fandom is required to write at least one of those. I'm about halfway through the fifth chapter, with only one more and an epilogue to go.
I have someone who takes a look at it as I finish chapters, but I want other eyes on it as well. I also very dearly need a Brit-picker to correct my slang and tweak my spelling. If you'd like to volunteer, drop me a line or message me. :3

Rating/Warnings: PG, swearing.

Rating/Warnings: PG-13, magic!AU, violence, swearing, vampires that don't sparkle and are actually supposed to be somewhat scary, gratuitous descriptions
Author's Note: I. Had. SO MUCH. Fun. Writing this. I can't even begin to tell you, seriously. Okay, Sunshine is my favorite book and is pretty much the only current book dealing with vampires that I can stand. So it was only a matter of time before I wrote a fusion/inspired/crossover/thingamabob using it as a backdrop. And guess what? I did! But I would like to assure you that no knowledge of said amazing book is necessary to reading this, since I pretty much just adapted some of the mythology to my own ends. Um. Yeah. Anywho, my thanks to anruiukimi and shanachie_quill for their encouragement and comments. You rock!
ATTENTION: munchinglunch made a podfic of this for help_japan! You can download it here.
Summary: The Wars turned the world on its head, and in that unrivaled chaos, John Watson was born with a rare gift. Sherlock, naturally, was born with an even rarer one. Years after the Wars end and the Others return to their dark lairs, two men are introduced by a well-meaning mutual acquaintance. And their world is upturned yet again.
Magic is believing in yourself; if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
That's the thing with magic. You've got to know it's still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible for you.
Charles de Lint
A world in which elves exist and magic works offers greater opportunities to digress and explore.
We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on.
The story is always better than your ability to write it.
When the War Fires Fade
2. My psych professor thinks I'm...well-adjusted. We had to write a paper about our parents' parenting styles, etc, and I wrote mine, literally, an hour before it was due. I spent maybe thirty minutes on it, and I was glossing over a shit-ton of stuff, because, well. She's my psych prof, not my therapist, and I have zero interest into getting into some of the heavier crap with my instructor. But, yeah, she sent me an email and said that she thought I was amazingly well-adjusted, you know, considering. Because she obviously knows me well enough to tell that I handling being screwed over by life. *rolls eyes* But, I did get a 100% on the paper, so I'm willing to move on. :3
3. My Sherlock AU is growing in leaps and bounds, and yet my Inception bigbang is tottering on painfully slowly. I do not think I like this. Not at all. More fic news here.
4. Martin Freeman is awesome.
5. Weekend of Solitude coming up! I am stupidly excited about having thee says to myself. I'm not sure what that says about me.
6. I fool around with the Sherlock promo pic and put it up on dA, but I'm going to put here anyway, just because:
Sherlock and John, Halloween by ~snowdarkred on deviantART
Can you spot what's wrong/different with this picture? :D
ETA: ALSO, my Supernatural Season 5 DVDs yesterday! \o/ Finally! My mom promised to get them for me, like, six months ago. And they're here now!
SON OF ETA: ALSO, so there's this guy that sits next to me in psych (he's sitting next to me right now, actually) who is constantly staring at my laptop screen, and he sometimes comments and so on. Example: He just told me that had many tabs open. Seriously. NONE OF HIS BUSINESS. So I asked him, Why do you do that. He said, Do what? I said, Look at my screen. Why do you do that? He said, Oh, and then spent the next twenty minutes pointedly talking to the chick behind us. \o/ Success! :D
WORK IN PROGRESS
SHERLOCK AU FIC
God help me, I'm using Sunshine as a backdrop for this. Shhh, no one tell on me. Seriously.
( John was just young enough during the Wars for the details to be lost in the fuzzy layers of memory. )
WTF SHOULD I DO WITH THIS???
Word Count: ~700
Rating/Warnings: PG. Swearing.
Author's Note: Movie!verse AU. Part of the alive with the glory of love 'verse. *waves* I've haven't forgotten you! I swear! I have a lot I still plan on doing in the girl!Jensen 'verse, not to mention that sequel to Project Super Soldier I have sitting on my computer. I just, uh, got distracted? This takes place after The Blow Job Incident and The Ear Incident, but before The Bolivia Disaster. So Roque is still a bastard, just not a traitorous bastard.
Summary: Jocelyn “Jake” Jensen doesn't want to think of her and Carlos “Cougar” Alvarez as star-crossed lovers, but she is beginning to wonder. Also, there is stress baking.
sugar doesn't solve problems, dear, you just wish it did
( Jensen wasn't the kind of girl who stared out a window, sighing as she mused about the state of the universe. )
Title: some day they'll go down together
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark pre-slash/UST
Universe: modern AU
Rating/Warning: PG-13, swearing and a side order of abuse
Word Count: ~3.5K
Beta: shanachie_quill gave this a quick glance over for me. Because she is awesome.
Author's Note: This is actually intended to be the first of a series, but since it can stand alone, I thought I'd go ahead and post it. This fic? Was so goddamn fun. It was probably the most fun I've had writing something in ages. Seriously. I've been meaning to do a non-superheroes AU since forever, and this was what came together. It was a blast. Title is from The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, a poem written by Bonnie Parker, one half of the (in)famous duo.
And for visuals: this is teen!Tony and this is teen!Steve. Much thanks to anruiukimi and shanachie_quill for dealing with my flailing and obsessing about who should "play" each character, and even more thanks to shanachie_quill who took my spelling to task. You guys rock!
Summary: It's a hard decision to make, but Steve can't let Tony go alone. He just can't.
some day they'll go down together
( When Steve opens the door, the first thing he sees sends him into a swearing streak so wide and foul that his mother stops messing around with her flour in the kitchen and comes over to see what set him off. )

Author's Note: Movie!verse AU. Part of the alive with the glory of love 'verse. Um. Sorry for the wait? This is fluff. But angsty. So angsty fluff? Yeah. At least I'm back now, right? :D
Summary: Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez has some dreams, involving him, Jocelyn "Jake" Jensen, and a house. Oh, and some kids.
dreams are reality filtered by nonsense and spooned by the impossible
( Cougar's dreams had always flirted with the edge of lucidity. )
Also, in case anyone's missed it until now, I've set up Fuck Yeah Jensen/Cougar, a tumblr blog devoted to our fav sniper and tech. ;) Check it out! :D

Rating/Warnings: PG-13, because apparently I'm just sliding backwards. No real warnings except for swearing?
Author's Note: Movie!verse AU. Part of the alive with the glory of love 'verse. I've been wanting to try this style of fic in a while, and now I've finally done it! \o/ Also, it felt really weird to not post any fic over the weekend. I'm telling you, you people have secretly brainwashed me or something.
Summary: The things that Carlos “Cougar” Alvarez knows about Jocelyn “Jake” Jensen, and the things that she knows about him.
the thing about you and me
( Cougar knows that Jensen dreams of a white picket fence life. )
Clay - wolf. Wolves are military-ish and have a chain of command. Thus, wolf.
Roque - I dunno. He's the only one that I can't see at all, not even a little. Must think further.
Aisha - snake. Because snakes are awesome and badass.
Cougar - I want him to have a Cougar, but I'm planning on thinking further. Maybe a Mexican Wolf? And I'm not saying that because the character is supposed to be Mexican, I just think Mexican wolves are really, really pretty.
Pooch - hawk. Just, yeah. Not sure one what particular type of hawk, but I think that it fits his personality for her to be airborne.
Jensne - Jensen is the hardest. I'm tempted to just go with fox. Since of humor, ability to misdirect, trickster. Also, pretty. :D But then, I'm biased towards foxes, so. I'll think about it next time I rewatch the movie.
Of course, I need to get the prompt during claiming. Which means that come August 14th, I'm going to be stalking the comm, ready to spring into action!
Also I'm thinking about names:
Pooch's daemon - Aerialis
Clay's daemon - Fortisa
Roque's daemon - Parraicida
Aisha's daemon - Callidus
Cougar's daemon - Immotiala? Agilitia?
Jensen's daemon - Secerna? Ardea?
Jolene's daemon (which is totes something super deadly) - Moderatri
Which, basically, is just intentionally mangled Latin. Um. But of course, I'll have to get the prompt before it would be even approaching final. *crosses fingers*
ETA: If not this, than the werewolf!AU, because there can never be enough team-is-secretly-wolfish!fics out there. XD

Rating/Warnings: PG, because apparently I'm just sliding backwards. No real warnings except for swearing?
Author's Note: Movie!verse AU. Part of the alive with the glory of love 'verse. You people have me so well trained. I took a mid-afternoon shower and then realized that I HADN'T POSTED ANY LOSERS FIC TODAY, NOOOOO. I hope you're happy. >:(
Summary: Aisha doesn't know what family is. The Losers, from Franklin Clay to Jocelyn "Jake" Jensen, teach her a bit about it.
kindly stop standing on your head and sit like a lady
( When Aisha was six, her father taught her a lesson. )
