Remix!

The Remix Redux 11: The Eleventh Hour archive went live last night! You can find the main collection here, and the Remix Madness collection here. I love this challenge for its mix of fandoms--you never know what people will pull up to work on.

I was excited to get two of my stories remixed, one as part of the main challenge, one as part of the madness:

Cracks in a Heart of Stone (the Alex Remix) (1675 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: White Collar
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Neal Caffrey, Alex Hunter, Peter Burke, Mozzie (White Collar)
Additional Tags: Action/Adventure, Human Trafficking
Summary:

Alex believes in surviving and taking care of herself, but sometimes she just can't avoid being drawn in.



This is a remix of a sick!Neal story I wrote in 2011, and it gives Alex's POV on the proceedings. I'm thrilled, because I love Alex, and I stuck her in the story with the vague sense that she fit the role she had to play best, but without fleshing out her motivation or actions. This fic does all of that, while giving an excellent, tough, slightly jaded, but still engaged Alex voice.

Flipped Switch (3114 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/Mary Morstan
Characters: Mary Morstan, Sherlock Holmes
Additional Tags: Fuck Or Die, Imprisonment, Dubious Consent, Drugged Sex, Gun play


This is a remix of a Sherlock/Mary fuck-or-die fic I wrote just a few months ago, and I'm tickled to death someone remixed it, with its odd pairing and off-putting scenario. I wrote the fic for a 24-hour turnaround challenge, and in consequence it lacks a lot of detail. The remix fixes all that, plus provides Mary's POV on things. The characterization of Mary, as a badass, brilliant operative, is fantastic, and the dub-con is very hot (if you like that kind of thing, which I do).

So, yeah, go read them!

I also wrote two fics for the challenge, one my assignment and one a pinch-hit. Both are, I think, immediately obvious as mine if you're thinking about it. If anyone is reading in the collection and has a (correct) guess about them, I will write you something fannish of your choosing after the reveals (fic, meta, recs, playlist, etc.). Hint: both are in fandoms I've written in before.

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 [livejournal.com 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?

H50

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."

Lewis

The Last Man Standing Just Got Felled by a Lion by [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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!

Sherlock

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

White Collar

Predisposed by [livejournal.com 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.

Re-posting the [livejournal.com 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 :)

Title: The Silver-Tongued Conman Loses His Voice.
Rating: PG-13, gen, no pairings.
Word count: ~11.5K (in two parts)
Spoilers: No specific spoilers for the show, but probably set sometime at the end of S1.
Warnings: This fic is gen, but there is discussion of human trafficking and the sexual coercion of minors, and also some crude sexual language.
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit.

a/n: This is a very, very late fic for the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 who first made a generous bid for my fic in the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auction, then waited months for said fic, and then read the first half of this one and gave me the key to finally finishing it. I wish this were better, bb, because you only deserve the best!
a/n: I had so much help with this one! [livejournal.com profile] harrigan and [livejournal.com profile] taste_is_sweet were kind enough to read the first half and offer extremely helpful advice. [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 also read the first half and set me on the path to finishing it. And then [livejournal.com profile] harrigan did a superfast and helpful final beta on it. Thank you all! And all remaining problems completely my own fault!
a/n: My rendition of Hmong here is my guess as to how Neal would hear it and bears no relation to the actual language.

Summary: Sometimes you have to leave the comfort for the hurt.

Late to the party, as usual, but I finally watched the mid-season finale of White Collar last night.

Let's do the not-so-shallow stuff first for once.

I saw this meme on [personal profile] topaz119's journal and thought I'd throw it out there:

Pick one of my fics, and I'll give you three details that didn't make it into the fic. Background canon, deleted scenes, or a look into the future. My choice, but if you have a specific question you can ask it in your request.

(I actually just updated this list, or it's all on AO3)

Happy weekend everyone!

And the other thing I have been watching is this quirky little camera on a kind of birdfeeder in the Amazon rainforest. Watch it rain! Watch tropical birds eat bananas!

Okay—let’s get the superficial stuff about White Collar 3.01 out of the way first, shall we?

Title: Thy firmness makes my circle just.
Fandom: White Collar
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Peter/Neal
Spoilers: None. Takes place sometime before the events of the end of S2.
Warnings: involuntary arousal of the sex-pollen variety; captivity; semi-public sex; fever!sex.
Word Count: ~4K
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit, no offense meant.

a/n: This is for a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 at Running Hot: Would love Neal or Peter infected with some sort of plot-cakey sex pollen, and he spikes a dangerous fever that can only be relieved by, um, you know... . I don’t know if this scenario counts as the sex-pollen trope, but there’s involuntary arousal, fever and, um, relief. So. If something can be shameless h/c and shameless porn at the same time, this is probably it.
a/n: I think there are consent issues here of the “giving consent while not in possession of one’s full faculties” variety—so please don’t read it that’s a trigger or something that bugs you.
a/n: title from John Donne’s “Valediction Forbidding Mourning.”

Summary: If he’d seen Peter look this vulnerable more than once before, he couldn’t remember it. It was worrying, and it tilted the natural order of the universe on its axis. But more than that, it brought emotions to the surface that Neal usually liked to keep buried deep, a fierce tenderness the most respectable among them.

In one of the first Alex episodes of S1, Alex and Neal talk about pulling a heist together in Italy (is it for the music box?). My memory is that one of them broke their leg and got left behind--but can't remember 1) which ep is it and 2) who got left behind.

Does anyone remember?

thanks!
ariadnes_string: (Kono-Danny)
Finally, a continuation of this. Still no idea where it's going, if anywhere. What's the next step down from a WIP?

So. I left this prompt on the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc kinkmeme back in July. No one took it up, so in about October, I started working on a fill myself. Here, finally, is the finished product.

Title: A Catch
Rating: pg-13
Warning: some mature themes, in an oblique way.
Fandoms: Sherlock/ White Collar
Word count: ~5K
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit
a/n: Take place early S2 for White Collar, and between The Blind Banker and The Great Game for Sherlock, although it may not match up with either canon perfectly.
a/n: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] innie_darling for the extremely helpful beta. All remaining problems purely my own!

Summary: “Here’s the thing. You know how you like to say that you’re the only person who’s ever caught me? Well, it might be more accurate to say that you’re the only person who’s ever caught me and sent me to jail.”

You know, the last episode of H50 was so awesome, I had no desire to watch another TV show for days. And so it took me until Thursday and Friday nights to watch the shows that were on on Tuesday.

Southland 3.06

White Collar 2.13

Yes, I am two episodes of SPN down now. And I’ma get right on that. Right after I write up my thoughts on The Eagle.
ariadnes_string: (Josie)
Yes, that is the sound of worlds colliding, as these two incredibly dissimilar shows (which occupy the same time slot on Tuesday nights) attempt to occupy the same lj post.

Except that both worlds seem to be preoccupied with the problem of bad fathers (does anyone in Hollywood think about anything else?).

Extra short this week:

I'm going out of town tomorrow, so I won't be able to see the new SPN episode until....late next week probably. Happy viewing, y'all!

Apparently, being icebound for days on end is conducive to writing R-rated ficlets, even when (especially when) one is supposed to be doing something else. Who knew?

Anyway, we are free now, but here's another Five Acts fill, still part of Project Angst Begone, this one White Collar.

(There's a third, that I'll try to put up tomorrow, but that one is Southland and thus, by necessity, somewhat angsty.)


Title: The Toes of a Forger
Rating: R
Pairing: Peter/Neal (established)
Word Count: ~1.1K
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit.
a/n: written for [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 as part of the Five Acts meme. The act included is: sex in a public place with a real chance of getting caught.
Summary: Neal has nimble toes.

Hey--I've completed my first fanfic bingo card ever! For [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo --though apparently someone forgot to tell me it wasn't fever_dream_bingo, 'cause I seem to be kinda a one-trick pony like that *facepalm*

It seems to be kink week up in here (as Danny Williams would say). But don’t despair, everyone who friended for the gen fic—this doesn’t happen very often!

Title: So We Move In Between
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarswap
Characters, Pairings: Neal/Peter with background Neal/Peter/Elizabeth
Rating: NC-17, but mostly for kink—aside from that, R.
Word Count: ~2K
Warnings: Breathplay (RACK—risk aware consensual kink).
Spoilers: through the beginning of S2, specific spoilers for 1.08, “Hard Sell.”
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit
a/n: title from The Talking Heads, “Born Under Punches.”
a/n: a big thank you to [personal profile] yourlibrarian for the beta!
a/n: original prompt was: Peter takes Neal’s breath away—literally.

Summary: Neal dreamt about the vault a lot, during those first shaky weeks after Peter sprung him from prison a second time.

I've been meaning to do this forever!

I've done two fic exchanges in the past month or so, and totally lucked out with fics I got for my prompts--so I wanted to pass along the links.

For the awesome [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange multifandom exchange, the very talented [livejournal.com profile] auctorial chose the pairing I suggested that I thought was the least likely to be taken up: Thirteen/ Morgana (House/Merlin) and wrote a gorgeous meditation on mortality and immortality (with added lovely femslash): Half Sick of Shadows (R).

And even though my fic for the [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarswap won't go up 'til Wed., I've already gotten this lovely fic from [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67: Where is my Mind. It takes up the prompt "The anklet develops some spooky extra powers: it starts transmitting Neal's thoughts and/or feelings--but only to Peter" and does an absolutely delightful job with it. (nc-17 for a brief smutty scene).

AND: [livejournal.com profile] annonwrites remixed my fic "Lost Saints" as Lost Tides for the Dean-focused remix challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] hoodie_time. It's only the second time someone has remixed one of my fics, and it's so cool to see what a change in POV can do!

Finally: over on AO3, Helga Winter has translated "Catching Waves on Dry Land" (the H50 gun!kink one) into Russian!. Even though I can't read a word, I'm amazed and flattered by this!

Anyway, enjoy!!
