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: 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.” )

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. )
