Here, for the very last night of Chanukah, is one more fic. With three fics posted, I did about as well as I usually did for this (self) challenge. Sigh. If I didn't get to your prompt, I may still--though possibly not until after Yuletide.

This one is for [ profile] kristen999

Title: We walk the same path, but got on different shoes
Fandom: H50
Rating: Gen (Steve&Danny or Steve/Danny, you can read it either way, really)
Word Count: 1.3K
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit
a/n: title from Lil Wayne's "Right Above It" (but I might change it)

Summary: Four days since Steve had been found, two since he’d come home from the hospital, and he was still wandering around his own home like it was unknown terrain.

We walk the same path, but got on different shoes

I haven't written H50 fic for a while, so to get myself in the mood I unearthed this wonderful older vid by Nel--check it out if you haven't seen it before, or if you haven't seen it for a while: One Week
ariadnes_string: (Steve-Danny-boat)
You'd think I wouldn't have another sick!Steve fic left in me (I can't even bear to count up how many I've written). But apparently you'd be wrong.

In any case, though, I've finally written something for Running Hot III. The funny thing is, I signed up for the [ profile] hawaii_50_hc "alphabet challenge" and I got "R" for "relax." I couldn't for the life of me think of something to go with that prompt. But this fic would fit it perfectly #toolittletoolate

Title: Track Record
Fandom: H50
Rating: G, gen
Warnings/Spoilers: n/a. Only really canon compliant for S1, though--I haven't even watched most of S3 (though I plan to).
Word count: 2,226
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit
a/n: for this prompt

Summary: "You," said Danny, "are the most uptight sick person I've ever met."

In other news, RUNNING HOT III is still very much open, with all kinds of fabulous prompts in many, many fandoms. Please come check them out!

This is the masterlist of fics written for Running Hot III (2013):

The Avengers

The Burning House Paradox by fairy_laughing. Banner, Richards, and Stark are playing with a time-machine when it backfires and mini-Tony walks on through. This wouldn't be nearly as big of a problem as it is except that the time-space paradox of too much Tony Stark is causing them both to become horribly ill.

Fantastic Four/X-Men

I Hold With Those Who Favor Fire by [ profile] katekintail : Johnny Storm(Human Torch) /Bobby (Iceman)--When Johnny gets sick/delerious he can't control his flame - how far does Bobby have to go to keep him from incinerating himself into oblivion?


In the Thicket of It by [personal profile] thegrrrl2002: After being missing for a few days, Danny finds Steve 'somewhere' with an infected bullet/stab/shrapnel wound. Cue bad guys closing in and Danny being all BAMF getting Steve out while taking care of him.

Track Record by [personal profile] ariadnes_string. Gen. "You," said Danny, "are the most uptight sick person I've ever met."


The Last Man Standing Just Got Felled by a Lion by [ profile] thesmallhobbit. There's a nasty flu going around Oxford CID and Hathaway's been putting in long hours manning the fort. How long 'til he succumbs himself?

Unsound Mind by [ profile] wendymr. and Part 2. Robbie has flu, and he isn't the easiest of patients, as James discovers.

Ripper Street

A United Front, by [ profile] alizarin_nyc: Reid is ill--woozy, voice-less, unable to make good decisions. For whatever reason, this needs to be hidden from the bad guys/power that be, and it's up to Drake and Jackson to make this happen. What's worse, they actually have to work together!


Doctors Make the Worst Patients, by [ profile] themallhobbit: Doctors make the worst patients.

White Collar

Predisposed by [ profile] marieincolour, (gen): Neal gets sick with a high fever and goes walking outside of his radius. The US Marshals come to get him but don't realize he's sick until Peter (or another character) comes to collect him.

Untitled (WC S1) by [personal profile] embroiderama: Out of his mind with fever, Neal thinks Peter is going to send him back in prison because he is useless.

The [community profile] purimgifts fics have been revealed, and here are links to the three I wrote (all under 1,000 words, as per the rules of the exchange).

Counting these, I've now written six Homeland fics, which is a lot for me in any fandom. Apparently Saul is my fic alter ego of the moment, which stands to reason, I suppose.

These are all gen.

Five Times Mira Saw Saul for the First Time (what it says on the tin)

Like Fantasy Football for Spies (Saul and Dar Adal divvy up the spies of the Bible)

Morning in Beirut (Saul and Carrie get stuck in a tight place)

I also received three wonderful H50 ficlets by [profile] misslucy21:

Catherine's Unexpected Leave (fabulous sick!fic)

Five Times Danny Thought about Religion (half!Jewish!Danny)

Friday Night Smash (drinking in the spirit of Purim)

Dear Purimgifts Author:

First of all, thank you so much for writing a story for me! Any fic in these fandoms would make me happy, so please just write what seems fun and interesting to you!

If it’s helpful, here are some things I like:

optional prompts for Homeland, Lewis, Sherlock, Grimm, H50 and the Aubreyad )

Most importantly, though, have fun, and know that I really appreciate the time and energy you’re taking to do this!

Happy Hanukah, everyone!

The latkes this year were crispy on the outside and cooked on the inside. That doesn't happen every year. Hopefully it was a portent.

Also, there was the Once-a-Year Kugel:

kugel )

I am trying again to post fics for each night of Hanukah. Tonight, the second chapter of a fic I started last year for Hanukah. I'm somewhat startled that I've finished it. It is now the second longest thing I've ever written.

The Adventure of the Tattooed Fighter

H50/SH xover sent in late nineteenth-century London. Pretty much PG-13, but with establish H/W.

Hope everyone's had a festive Saturday of one sort or another!

So, I broke my Yom Kippur technology/media fast by watching H50 3x01 with the boys. In the interests of full disclosure, I’ll admit that I never saw most of the S2 finale; I think I got the gist, but it may be that I missed some of the subtleties of this episode.

spoilers )

I like to think there’s a world where Doris McGarrett and Kelly Burkhardt from Grimm get together for some unsweetened ice tea and a few diet-breaking cookies.

Let’s call it the Land of Over-used Plot Devices.

the poignant dreams of ninja moms )

Next: Danny and Monroe meet in a bar and discuss appropriate forms of address for your BFF’s mother when she comes back from the dead. “At least she isn’t sworn to kill you and all of your kind,” says Monroe. “I’m not too sure about that,” says Danny.
ariadnes_string: (Steve-Danny-boat)
Here's the other remix. You've probably seen it already if you follow AO3, but I've decided to archive them here too. This is the pinch hit, and I was in such a state when I wrote it I can barely remember doing it. Any hotness that remains derives entirely from the original fic.

Title: Red Line Overload (the Lytton Strachey remix)
Fandom: H50
Pairing: Steve/Danny
Rating: a hard R
Word count: ~1,400
Warnings/Spoilers: n/a
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit

a/n: this is a remix of [ profile] templemarker's excellent fic, Red Line Overload.
a/n: parenthetical title taken from the man in Steve's anecdote.

All those years in Jersey, Danny was a good cop because he knew when to walk towards danger and when to walk away.

Then he moved to Hawaii and that knowledge went to shit.

Here's my fic for [ profile] purimgifts. No opportunity to write a Jewish character this year, but I thought, well, Kono and Chin are cousins just like Esther and Mordecai, so why not!

Word Count: ~3K
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit.

a/n: loosely based on The Book of Esther.

Summary: Kono goes undercover to protect the things she believes in.

I'm hoping to post a bit of fic for each night of Hanukah. This is the first night, and the first fic, in a slight change of plans, is the first half of a long-overdue auction fic. Sherlock/Jewish!Lestrade will commence tomorrow.

“Who is he?” Watson asked.
“They call him the Tahitian,” Holmes replied, eyes fixed on the bout.

Re-posting the [ profile] xover_exchange fic I've been whining about. I don't like it as much as the stabs I made at the same xover here and here. But, unlike those ficlets, it has a plot of sorts :)

ariadnes_string: (Blu)
Did anything happen in H50 2x06 except Steve getting in the ring? 'Cause I saw him put that mouth guard in, and start hopping up and down like a bunny, and then I started thinking about this:

And wondering if Steve would get anybody in an unbreakable thigh lock and force them to tap out like Joel Edgerton does repeatedly in the movie. And then I started wondering what would happen if Steve had to fight either Tommy or Brendan. And. Yeah....I kinda lost track.

I guess other things happened? The boys were pleased to see Kono with a rifle.

Homeland 1x04 spoilers )
ariadnes_string: (Blu)
H50 2x05 )

Homeland 1x03

Someone else is watching this, right? right? If not, maybe you should try it; it is pretty fucking good. If someone is, can they please talk to me about the whole "Semper Fidelis" moment and how awesome Damian Lewis is? And about one of the most disturbing, not-sexy sex scenes I've ever seen on TV?

(these are not spoilers: Damian Lewis is consistently awesome and the psycho-sexual stuff is consistently disturbing, though not gratuitous or unrealistic, I don't think)
ariadnes_string: (Blu)
I have watched too much TV in the past week, y'all. This really can’t go on. But, since I did, I might as well give you a brief report:

I have already shared my rant thoughts about Downton Abbey 2x03. Kudos to Julian Fellowes for pinpointing the exact moment in history when it became impossible to sympathize with the British ruling class (Evelyn Waugh notwithstanding).

But I also watched Merlin 4x01, which I loved with an unembarrassed love.

Merlin 4x01 )

H50 2x03 )

And two new shows, b/c 2011 seems to be the year of creepy stalkers as heroes. Both shows are obsessed, in an classically Foucauldian way, with the way in which the sheer quantity of information we are able to gather about other people only makes us that much more anxious about the things we can’t know—the people who live, and the things that go on, off the grid and under the radar and behind locked doors.

I’ve now watched two episodes of Person of Interest, and the second (1x02) is much better than the first. Jim Cavaziel and Michael Emerson even managed some chilly, lizard-voiced banter with each other, and I approve of the show’s penchant for rendering Cavaziel bloody and battered in an early scene and leaving him that way through the rest of the episode. I actually found the plot pretty interesting and coherent, and I think with just a little more character development the show could spawn some fic. It would be great for xovers with other shows set in NYC. What if the machine spat out Elizabeth Burke’s social security number? Mike Ross’s? What would they make of Reese lumbering around in the shadows.

I watched the first episode of Showtime’s Homeland, and, really, this is the best of the lot. It has a kind of Old Spice cast (“take a look at your cast”—“now look at our cast”—“now look back at your cast”)--Claire Danes, Damian Lewis, Morena Baccarin, Mandy Patinkin)--and a creepy Manchurian Candidate style plot: Lewis is a POW who’s found in Iraq after eight years of captivity; Danes is the CIA analyst who thinks he’s been turned; Baccarin is his wife and Patinkin is her mentor.

Homeland 1x01 spoilers and warnings )

Still listening to Regeneration, and it is just as unrelentingly poignant as I remember. It’s been twenty years since I first read it, and I am now much closer in age to Rivers, the psychiatrist, than I am to the young soldiers he treats, and that has made a re-listen really interesting. It’s also made me want to read other novels that take psychiatrists/psychologists as their protagonists—any suggestions?
ariadnes_string: (Blu)
Okay, I know everyone is eagerly anticipating the return of Hawaii Five-O tonight (and no one more than my six-year-old, who is Steve McGarrett’s biggest fanbody), but I have two words for y’all: Downton Abbey.

Which is back, and as glorious as ever.

Downton Abbey 2x01--don’t click if you are waiting for PBS to air it in 2012 )

Dr. Who 6x11: cut because even though I like it very much DW falls into the category of things I fail to have the proper reverence for )

I will probably watch H50 tomorrow, when I can share the joy with my six-year-old. The fandom is so big now, and so intense, that it all makes me a bit nervous—everyone seems to have so much riding on it….

Oh, and happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Huh. This seems to be my coda for 1.24. It’s pretty oblique, but there are spoilers.

So I was all, whee, 5 Acts Meme, I'm gonna write some porn. But only one of my fills ended up being particularly porny at all (the Camelot het I posted last week). The others were either schmoopy or angsty (if still explicit). *facepalm* Here's the schmoopy one. It's sick!Steve, and there's a lovely reciprocal sick!Danny fic by [ profile] norgbelulah, here
