Title: I Let My Oars Fall Into The Water
Pairing: Sam/various, Sam/Gene
Rating: Hard R / Brown Cortina
Wordcount: 4,401 (It, er, got away from me)

Warnings: Um, you've read the Hookerverse right? Unbetaed due to sheer shame, I apologize for any mistakes in advance.

Disclaimer: LoM belongs to Kudos and the BBC. The venerable magnum opus that is the Hookerverse is the wicked, beautiful child of darthfi and m31andy, who are also the suitable address for any complaints. The title comes from Jennifer Michael Hecht's poem 'September.'

A/N: Feeling quite heartbroken by the demise of the much beloved Hookerverse, I seem to have accidentally written this 'epilogue'. I'm not much for AU's, never have been. And so I was caught completely off guard by how quickly I fell for this 'verse, for a concept that should never have survived beyond a few cracktastic ficlets. But then it went and sunk its nails into my heart with its brilliant execution and consistency and (don't smack me) vision. And then all of a sudden it was over and, well, this happened.

As I'm typing this out I still don't really believe that I'll be able to muster up the bravado to post this, but if you're reading this I guess I have. And now I need a drink. And for nobody to look at me for a while. For the record - this is the perfect ending for this series as far as I’m concerned.

You know, I always forget how much I hate posting fic. I'm actually physically nauseous the entire day, develop a frighteningly dependent relationship with my inbox and proceed to kindle a deep burning hatred for almost every word posted.

Why do we put ourselves through this crap? And the thing is that I truly do enjoy the actual writing process – no matter how much it makes me want to jab something long and pointy into my brain and keeps me up at night and induces a legitimately worrisome caffeine problem. I mean, why else would anyone do this? But the posting… and I don't have psychosomatic reactions to bloody anything so why this? Bleh.

Title: At the Round Earth's Imagined Corners
Fandom: Life on Mars
Pairing: Sam/Gene, The Test Card Girl
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: You not see show, you not read fic
Words: 2,457
Disclaimer: Life on Mars belongs to Kudos and the BBC. Title and epigraph come of course from John Donne's Holy Sonnets VII and X, respectively.
A/N: For the 07' Life on Mars ficathon, written for m31andy who wanted the Test Card Girl, motivations and 'I never said it would be easy.' This is a sort of a splicing of two requests, sorry, I'm horrid at following instructions. God knows I’m usually nervous enough about the writing itself but then there was that whole added factor of writing for Andy… and, well, she and Fi renewed my interest in this fandom so... well, I hope you like it.

Yeesh, it's been such a long time since I did a public post, this feels kind of weird.

Tuesday was the hardest, Tuesday was so many different shades of terrible all at once. I knew everyone was seeing it, everyone already knew what I could not.

I was thankful for every work shift I had this week as it spared me from staring numbly at my laptop, counting blue torrent lines.

Dawn broke this morning during my night shift and I was sitting with my feet on the desk, grateful that I live in the Middle East (and that doesn't happen often) because it means I still get to smoke indoors. I don't remember who wrote a fic that had Sam as an ex-smoker who got tired of 'shivering in doorways' but that thought frightened me as much as it had Gene I suppose.

And I couldn’t get rid of that lump in my throat at the idea of coming home to see it. And the thing is.... this finale isn't like other finales. This could end everything. And not in that stupid - oh, this is how the canon says it ends. But really honestly change everything, every single fic ever written may be reduced to ashes, there may be nothing to write about in the future because none of them may have ever existed in the first place.

But it is actually the idea of fic, and the desire to read everything that had been written since the finale, that compelled me to stop behaving like a child and sit down with a bowl, comfort cereal, milk, a full pack of Luckies and an almost full bottle of Diet Coke. And press play.

The obligatory finale rant o' death, careful all ye' who enterCollapse )

Title: Slouching Towards Bethlehem
Fandom: The West Wing
Characters: Sam Seaborn, Jed Bartlet (a little Toby and Leo for flavor.)
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Almost all episode-related, from pre S1 to mid-S3 (specifically the ITSOTG flashbacks, Proportional Response, ITSOTG, Galileo, The Drop In, SGTE SGTJ, The Fall's Gonna Kill You, Two Cathedrals, Manchester, H. Con-172 and Hartsfield's Landing (refrences to Ellie, The Two Bartlets and Night Five)
Words: 3,665
Warnings: For the most part it's tilt-your-head-and-squint slash but some of its proper m/m so if that ain't your cuppa tea… Though I assume that most of the aforementioned non-cuppa people are still banging their fists against their Lance Bass posters screaming WHY GOD WHY?????!!!!!

Written for black_eyedgirl for the Sam round of tww_minis. Request was Jed (not necessarily romantically) and an explanation of how Jed got from not knowing Sam's name in the flashbacks to "you're going to be President someday" in Hartsfield's Landing. No uber-angst and no death-fic.

A/N: I begin by apologizing profusely for being a whopping 13 days late with this. I then beg the jury's mercy as I honestly didn't know they'd start a frickin' actual war when I signed up. I thank the nice Hezbollah dudes for only 4 sirens today and le' military for letting me come home for a bit.
This is un-betaed, all mistakes and conflicting tenses are mine, again I apologize for rushing this.
I know you've all geared up for Andy and I can't wait to read everyone's challenges, maybe by the next round we will know better and more peaceful days.
The title comes of course from W.B. Yeats' "The Second Coming'.

50 themes for 1sentence

Fandom: Jurassic Park III

Pairing: Dr. Alan Grant/Billy Brennan

Theme set: Delta

Rating: PG-13 for mild+ sexual references

Disclaimer: The characters and franchise all belong to the mighty Universal™ studios and Amblin™ entertainment. Me not own. Glad do not own. Could not have made such a gay film on my own if I tried.

The general title belongs to John Denver (I'm willing to bet that Alan has a secret tape of the Rocky Mountain collection stashed in the pickup somewhere…)

A/N: Set before, during and after the film so some bits may refer to whatever is canon at the time (basically the parts where Billy is still presumed dead). Before/after bits may be vaguely AUish but then everything in this fandom is anyways.
I re-watched the movie a few times while doing this, one of those times with my brother who usually always rolls his eyes at my slashy references but after watching it again had to agree to the age old saying - 'Don't see the slash? That's like not noticing the dinosaurs..."
