Title: Story of a Plague
Series: Helena and Shelby
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1783
Summary: When her partner is struck down by the most recent disaster, Helena knows she has to fix things on her own.
Notes: This is the story of what actually happened on the day alluded to in Something Bad and Washable.

Somewhere along the way, Helena picked up on the idea that to place your hand on the back of someone else’s neck was a sign of possession – of protectiveness, perhaps. )
Title: A Brief History of Shelby and Nona Kikorov
Series: Helena and Shelby
Rating: PG-13ish
Word Count: 500
Summary: Shelby isn't gay. She's just in love.
Notes: I steal things from books, television, other people's fanfiction (which somehow feels more dishonest than either of the above), and from people around me. Please forgive me.

A few days before I left for college, my mother said, “Whatever you do, don't come back gay.” )
Title: In Which Helena is a Hero
Series: Helena and Shelby
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1139
Summary: Shelby has been kidnapped. Helena is not pleased.
Notes: Prompt was to give somebody superpowers; was working on a page limit, so it ends kind of abruptly. While trying to come up with a street address, I Googled something along the lines of 'menacing words beginning with h'.

There's a killer on the loose and Shelby's gone missing. I don't suppose it's excruciatingly difficult to connect the dots on this one. )
Title: Mitt and Leena: A Slightly Toxic Love Story
Fandom: I don't want to talk about it.
Pairing: I really, really don't want to talk about it.
Rating: Shit
Word Count: Too fucking long (4018)
Summary: Leena and Mitt Fucking Romney have true love.
Warnings: Lots of weird. Lots of specifically requested weird that I did not come up with. (I'm not really denying responsibility. I brought it into being. But there are so many levels of creepy here and I'd like to make it clear that my autonomy was highly restricted and someone else made up 90% of the content of this story.) Did you get the part about Mitt Romney?
Notes: I wrote this as a present for a friend in my junior year of high school. As a present, it was great. As a work of fiction, fuck knows. But it's here and it's finished and I'm inflicting it upon you, the public, because I hate you for reading it almost as much as I hate myself for writing it. I skimmed it before posting and it might be worth reading just to see exactly how much of my bitterness over being made to do this leaked through.

This is a love story. That alone should tell you all you need to know. )

Title: Michelle: Interlude
Series: Heroes of the Zombie Apocalypse
Rating: PG-13/R for violence
Word Count: 4625
Summary: In the wake of the dead rising, Michelle Clinton took her bike and went from her home in Appalachia to the Northwest Territories. This is what happened in New York.
Notes: First in the Heroes of the Zombie Apocalypse series. Written for my best friend type person's birthday. I appear, as someone who's obsessive paranoia ultimately pays off.

There is a universe in which Michelle Clinton is content. )
