Project list. )

draw back your bow - One Direction, R, Niall/Louis.

Title: draw back your bow
Fandom: One Direction
Rating: R.
Length: About 14,000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Niall/Louis.

Summary: Niall is a cupid who takes his job very seriously. He's grateful for all the help he gets from his friends and from his own magic. But what happens when he gets a name without any hints? Will he be able to figure out Louis Tomlinson's love match, and, possibly, find his own love in the process?

Notes: Big thanks to onthehill for looking this over, to annemari for cheerleading, and to annemari and fiarra for all the Nouis support this year. Special thanks to the lovely mods of 1dsummerbang for running the fest and giving me a reason to finish! It's always nice when I can finish stories I've been writing for nine months.

Notes about the story: there's alcohol/drinking. In terms of secondary pairings, there's background Harry/Nick, Harry/Zayn, Zayn/Perrie (it's knowing v-shaped poly), and Liam/Sophia.

You & I - One Direction, PG, Niall/Louis.

Title: You & I
Fandom: One Direction
Rating: PG.
Length: 2265 words.
Characters/Pairings: Niall/Louis.

Summary: Louis and Niall take turns feeling poorly.

Notes: Happy birthday, [personal profile] annemari! Remember when I was prodding you a few weeks back about what you liked to see in fic? :D?

Big thanks to onthehill for looking this over. Also on AO3.

Halcyon - Bandom (MCR), NC-17, Mikey/Frank.

Title: Halcyon
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17
Length: About 12k.
Characters/Pairings: Mikey/Frank, secondary Ray/Gerard.

Summary: It started, as it often did, as a favor for Gerard. Gerard was the reason Mikey was a supermodel who wore both suits and dresses for work, and Gerard was the reason that Mikey helped out a budding designer named Frank Iero.

But falling in love...that was all Mikey and Frank, really.

Notes: For [community profile] bandombigbang 2015. Be sure to check out the wonderful complementary art by chibifukurou!

This story includes references to depression, addiction, and mild gender dysphoria (Mikey is genderqueer). The non-binary stuff riffs off my personal experience and isn't meant to represent a greater whole. (Also, I'm DFAB and Mikey's DMAB, which means some of it was speculation by necessity.) Thanks to the mods of this lovely challenge (I can't believe I've been doing it for four years now!). This story is in tribute to the great people I've met through bandom, many of whom helped me sort through gender identity stuff through example or direct conversation or both.

Hush (The Doggy Style Remix) - Parks and Recreation, NC-17, Ann/April.

Title: Hush (The Doggy Style Remix)
Fandom: Parks and Recreation
Rating: NC-17
Length: About 2000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Ann/April.

Summary: "God, you're the most boring werewolf nurse ever."

(Or: Ann expands her horizons to make April happy.)

Notes: Written as a pinch hit for FemmeRemix. The story I remixed is the wonderful Topping From The Bottom by SapphoIsBurning. Big thanks to the usual suspects for their support. Anything wrong/weird (or weirder than the story is supposed to be) is all me. Thanks also to the mods for running this challenge, and, of course, the author for writing a great original story. It was a lot of fun to remix this!

a river for a soul - One Direction, NC-17, Liam/Harry.

Title: a river for a soul
Fandom: One Direction
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 1800 words.
Characters/Pairings: Liam/Harry.

Summary: That's what's strange about getting off with one of your mates after years of friendship. You know things.

Notes: Taking my cues from none other than One Direction themselves, it's the middle of the night, and I'm sharing stories I've been sitting on! This is the first of two stories I wrote months ago, and I don't know why I never posted this one, but...I didn't? Until now, of course.

Thanks to onthehill for being so great about checking over my random stories. Anything off is my doing.

(i feel them) crash against my skin - One Direction, NC-17, Zayn/Harry.

Title: (i feel them) crash against my skin
Fandom: One Direction
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 4350 words.
Characters/Pairings: Zayn/Harry.

Summary: They're doing the photo shoot for the On the Road Again tour when Harry says, "Do me."

Zayn, thinking Harry means sex, blinks at him wordlessly until Harry says, "Come on, I'm bored. Wouldn't it be fun if we posed in different bodies?"

Notes: Like One Direction, I'm randomly dropping things I've been sitting on in the middle of the night! This is the second of two stories that I wrote months ago and just...haven't posted before now. I wrote this late winter and intended to edit and post after my 1D Big Bang was up, and, uh. Long story short, that story went up a week after Zayn left the group. I did trim some small things when I finally got to edits, but this is still a Pre-Exit Story.

Thanks to onthehill for looking this over. Anything wrong/weird is all me.

Top Flight - Taylor Swift/Model RPF, NC-17, Taylor/Karlie.

Title: Top Flight
Fandom: Taylor Swift/Model RPF
Rating: NC-17
Length: 9182 words.
Characters/Pairings: Taylor/Karlie

Summary: Taylor hadn't thought about a new Weyr under her guidance as an opportunity to make friends. The most she'd allowed herself to hope for was to be left alone.

Or: Taylor is the first female bronze rider in Pern, and Karlie is Ista's new Weyrwoman.

Notes: Originally written for the TSwift Tribadism Tropefest, but I finished this super late (and then sat on it for a while for no reason), so I'm posting it on my own.

This story contains gendered slurs and talk of rape culture. There's no "dragons made us do it" like in Pern canon, though. Related to that, I took a lot of liberties with Pern canon in both major and minor ways so I could address things like gender roles and equality, consent, and people who aren't straight. It's still pretty recognizably Pern, though.

Top Flight )

Sweet Dreams - Inside Out, G, Joy/Sadness.

Title: Sweet Dreams
Fandom: Inside Out
Rating: G.
Length: About 1800 words.
Characters/Pairings: Joy/Sadness.

Summary: "So this is what dream duty's like."

It turns out Joy likes having others around while Riley's asleep. Maybe one other in particular.

Notes: Thanks to my Twitter pals for their encouragement. Any wonkiness in the story is due to either creative interpretation or the lack of a good way to check canon at this point. (Heh.)

Sweet Dreams )

My Light is Electric - One Direction, NC-17, Louis/Zayn (and others).

Title: My Light is Electric
Fandom: One Direction
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 23,000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Louis/Zayn (endgame), Louis/Liam, Louis/Harry, Louis/Niall.

Summary: Alphas aren't just meant to be ravished, and that's as important a lesson as just how fun ravishing can be.

Louis hates being an omega sometimes, but he can cope. His alpha bandmates are happy to help him break his heats, and he's happy to help them through their first heat or knotting experience. Everyone wins.

Falling for his one other omega bandmate, on the other hand, isn't something Louis's prepared for.

Notes: Written for 1D Big Bang. Make sure to check out the great mix by Bohemu here!

Special thanks to the wonderful onthehill for looking this over, and to the mods for putting the whole thing on.

Title: (you know that i could) use somebody
Fandom: One Direction/Radio 1 RPF
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~4000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Nick/Louis.

Summary: Louis always knows when he's won.

Or: Nick gets a late-night visit from a popstar looking for a little help before he sleeps.

Notes: Written for the TFLN Challenge for the prompt: (415): I think he might be using me for sex. I also think I might be ok with that. Big thanks to onthehill for looking over the story - any remaining errors/weirdness/etc. is all me.

Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)

best date a girl could ask for - Taylor Swift/Model RPF, NC-17, Taylor/Karlie.

Title: best date a girl could ask for
Fandom: Taylor Swift/Model RPF
Rating: NC-17
Length: 1851 words.
Characters/Pairings: Taylor/Karlie

Summary: Being a creature of the night hasn't gotten old, and Karlie's not sure it ever will.

Vampire queen Taylor keeps her nights busy. Karlie is happy to be her familiar.

Notes: Written for Yuletide 2014! Thanks to eloiserummaging for betaing this Yuletide treat! The title's a paraphrase from Karlie's Instagram.

Like Portia and Ellen - 1D/Radio 1 RPF, NC-17, Harry/Nick.

Title: Like Portia and Ellen
Fandom: One Direction/Radio 1 RPF
Rating: NC-17
Length: About 10,425 words.
Characters/Pairings: Harry/Nick.

Summary: "Did I agree to move in with Harry Styles?"

In 2020, Nick's done with the Breakfast Show, moving to LA for his new job, and ready to be a proper adult. Mostly.

Notes: Note about content: there's non-explicit talk of vomit in the story. For spoilery info on some of the canon used for this story, see the end notes.

So many people helped me with this story! Thanks to:

-Hllangel: your prompts were not only perfect and very helpful, but they fit and fleshed out an idea I already had and wanted an excuse to write. (Also, it was really hard to keep this quiet on Twitter. ilu ♥)
-onthehill: Champion beta and Britpicker who got this back to me on Christmas Eve. I took some creative liberties with the Briticisms - I figured Nick in this version of events would be familiar enough with the US to use "freeway" instead of "motorway", for instance - so any changes/errors are mine.
-Everyone involved in wrangling this challenge/creating the collection/etc. It's been a blast!

(slam it to the left) if you're having a good time - 1D/Radio 1 RPF, NC-17, Harry/Nick.

Title: (slam it to the left) if you're having a good time
Fandom: One Direction/Radio 1 RPF
Rating: NC-17
Length: 6855 words.
Characters/Pairings: Harry/Nick.

Summary: Breaking her ankle because of an illegal hit gutted Nick. Coming back from time away and falling for the opposing team's new skater definitely made things better, though.

Notes: This is a roller derby story, so while there is some injury and rough play, it's described vaguely and only happens in context with the games, although Louis does injure Nick on purpose (and more than actually intended). There's a mention of dysphoria - one of the main characters is a trans woman - but only to avoid it. I'm happy to answer any questions about content in the comments/messages/wherever.

Anything correct in this story is because of the WFTDA rules and because I took the advice of the person who looked this over in advance (ilu onthehill - the story wouldn't be what it is without you). There were purposeful creative liberties taken in a couple places.

(So We Could Start It) All Over Again - Bandom (FOB), NC-17, Pete/Patrick.

Title: (So We Could Start It) All Over Again
Fandom: Bandom (Fall Out Boy)
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~7k.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: Pete is Patrick's escort when Patrick's not busy being a superstar producer and Pete's not busy worrying about his failing band. When Patrick hires Pete to help a struggling group in the studio and stops hiring him for sex, can they adjust to their roles changing, or will they go their separate ways when the album's finished?

Notes: My second of two stories for akamine_chan's fanworks auction; thanks to sperrywink for the donation and the detailed prompt (and sorry for taking so long!), and thanks to faildamaged for the beta. Title's from One Direction's Over Again.

One More Day - Center Stage, PG-13, Eva/Juliette.

Title: One More Day
Fandom: Center Stage
Rating: PG-13.
Length: ~5k.
Characters/Pairings: Eva/Juliette.

Summary: Eva's come to terms with why she left ABA for a guest stint in London. Now she needs Juliette to understand why she came back.

And highways I call home - Bandom (MCR/FOB), R, Mikey/Patrick.

Title: And highways I call home
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance/Fall Out Boy)
Rating: R.
Length: ~7k.
Characters/Pairings: Mikey/Patrick.

Summary: When Mikey joins Fall Out Boy on tour for a couple weeks, he finds out all kinds of surprising things about Patrick. That he's a werewolf is pretty low on the list.

Notes: This was written for [personal profile] akamine_chan's fanworks auction (and my deepest apologies to [personal profile] lucifuge5 for going so far over the projected finish date, oops). The story's set loosely in summer 2014, with some liberties taken for creative reasons/because I felt like it. Title's from MCR's Summertime also because I felt like it.

Additional content notes: Mildly spoilery. )

WFOB - Bandom (FOB), NC-17, Pete/Patrick.

Title: WFOB
Fandom: Bandom (Fall Out Boy)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: ~10,500 words.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: Pete Wentz, sports anchor at WFOB, has a new mission when Patrick Stump takes the lead anchor chair: Operation Best Friend. But what happens when it turns into a romantic project?

Notes: My story for [community profile] bandombigbang 2014, wave three. Mix by [personal profile] lucifuge5. Give it a listen!

My deepest gratitude to:

-[personal profile] melusina and [personal profile] romantical for betaing. Any remaining errors are mine, either accidental or deliberate.
-The mods of [community profile] bandombigbang for all their work.
-Everyone on Twitter who saw my original musings following the interview where Pete and Patrick read the news and insisted I take my ideas further. You're all to blame!

Any fin is possible - 1D/Radio 1 RPF, NC-17, Harry/Nick.

Title: Any fin is possible
Fandom: One Direction/Radio 1 RPF
Rating: NC-17.
Length: 6066 words.
Characters/Pairings: Harry/Nick.

Summary: Harry falls off his ship and washes up onto an island. Turns out, he's not the only one looking to get home.

Or: in which Harry is not a pirate, Nick doesn't like a cuddle (except when he does), and they both have magical secrets.

Notes: Biggest thanks in the world to onthehill for not just Britpicking, but catching missing words and so on. Any remaining errors are mine.

Shieldmaiden of Rohan - Lord of the Rings, PG, Éowyn/Rosie.

Title: Shieldmaiden of Rohan
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Rating: PG.
Length: 1523 words.
Characters/Pairings: Éowyn/Rosie Cotton.

Summary: There had been many battles won by the teeth of the shieldmaidens, but the men who ruled Rohan said that wolves and horses were ill-suited to one another. Men rode horses, of course, and they put them on their banners, and they slaughtered the wild wolves that roamed the plains and stuck their furs to the city walls in warning.

Shieldmaidens withdrew from the wars of men. Their great power, they decided, was only for themselves and whomever they deemed worthy.

Notes: Written for Queer Werewolf Ladies Fest for the prompt Éowyn/Arwen, Éowyn is a were! (Or any other pairing, actually, I just literally can't remember any other named female characters in LotR except for Rosie, who seems like an unlikely partner for Éowyn.) I couldn't resist. :D?
