Rating: PG-13ish, for language
Word Count: 1542
Summary: Something bad happened, today.

Title: Happy Birthday
Series: none, thank God
Rating: Rish?
Word Count: 3169
Summary: Love and violence.
Notes: Written during my ill-advised Poe period, many years ago. Unadultered wangst, prose my mother once referred to as 'ultraviolet', vaguely supernaturally stuff, and, most shocking, pure het. Kept for humility's sake.

I came home broken from the ends of the world. )

Title: Winter
Series: The Cycle of Seasons
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 696
Summary: You found me in the winter.
Notes: The fourth part of the series. This was also the first one written, before I realized it was going to be a series, so it's slightly different than the others.

As we leave the house, I lag, a little bit, staying back to lock up and make sure the shutters are secure. )

Title: Spring
Series: The Cycle of Seasons
Rating: PG
Word Count: 794
Summary: It was spring when we met.
Notes: First in a five part series concerning death. Written after obsessively rewatching and rereading Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead for a few weeks, during my senior year of high school. Kept for masochistic/sentimental value.

Sometime in the spring I wake up with a distinct feeling of wrongness. )

Fandom: Punditslash
Pairing: Anderson Cooper/Keith Olbermann
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 932
Summary: Anderson gets depressed, sometimes.
Notes: Contains references to the Exploding Puppies trilogy. Precursor to as-yet unfinished Shatter, in which the nervous breakdown I kept threatening Anderson with actually happens.

When Anderson gets depressed, he does it quietly. )

Anderson gets the feeling he's being watched. )

Title: Exploding Puppies
Series: Exploding Puppies
Fandom: Punditslash
Pairing: Anderson Cooper/Keith Olbermann
Rating: PG, maybe?
Word Count: 657
Summary: A story about figurative demons and literal puppies.
Notes: From 2008. My first pundit fic. I'm still pretty fond of it.

In Anderson's head, there is sometimes screaming. Sometimes explosions. Sometimes not much of anything but silence. )
Title: Six Miles of Vegas
Series: The Vegas Saga
Rating: PG13ish
Word Count: series total of 23,000
Summary: When Michelle's car broke down just outside of Las Vegas, Julian stopped to give her a hand. You can see where this is going.
Notes: Part three. You know how in A Hard Day's Night there's that moment when John Lennon says, 'let's do the show right here' and then they start playing? Apparently that was intended to be a parody of scenes in other movies where people couldn't make it to their venue and did concerts in the middle of a field. Unfortunately, when you watch the movie, you don't realize it's a joke at all. There's a moment like that in here.

Richard wasn't precisely what Michelle had expected. )
Title: Six Miles of Vegas (Part Two of Three)
Series: the Vegas Saga
Rating: PG13ish
Word Count: series total of 23,000
Summary: When Michelle's car broke down just outside of Las Vegas, Julian stopped to give her a hand. You can see where this is going.
Notes: The second part. There's dancing. It's kind of sickening.

In the sort of coincidence that would toe the line between amusing and terrifying if the parties involved ever found out about it, Michelle, James, and Julian sat down to a breakfast identical to the one Andy had made for herself, though some hours earlier then she had. )
Title: Six Miles of Vegas (Part One of Three)
Series: The Vegas Saga
Rating: PG13ish
Word Count: series total of 23,000
Summary: When Michelle's car broke down just outside of Las Vegas, Julian stopped to give her a hand. You can see where this is going.
Notes: Written a couple of years ago for my best friend type person's birthday. As such, it's basically a Mary Sue, though hopefully not a shit one. Features her as the Romantic Heroine, Julian Sands as the Romantic Hero and the guys from Top Gear because that's what I was watching at the time. A representation of me is in here, too, drinking heavily.

It was hot and heavy as the half-way mark of a Harlequin, outside. )

Title: Southern State
Series: none
Rating: PG13ish
Word Count: 2444
Summary: You can live in the desert, but the mountains will always be your home.
Notes: Originally written as a fanfic in, like, 2004. Kept for sentimental value.

There are few pleasures greater then the slow, settling, contentment that comes with watching the stars rise as a quiet evening turns into a quiet night at home. )

Title: Ray Galilei and the Secondary Female Protagonist
Series: Ray
Rating: PG13ish
Word Count: 1550
Summary: Ray does not do well with women.
Notes: Third written in the Ray series.

When Ray was a kid, and therefore a bit of an egomaniac, he was pretty much convinced that if his life a TV show, he would be the hero. )
