The overflow of my Yuletide writing roll, I guess.

I didn't sign up for [community profile] fandom_stocking, but I signed up for the call for volunteers to help fill them. I only managed to write one ficlet, though:

On Folly Bridge (1555 words) by ariadnes_string
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch, X-Men (Movies)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Charles Xavier, Thomas Nightingale, Isis
Additional Tags: Crossover

Oxford 1962: Late one night, Charles sees something new.

And this I really wanted to write as a Yuletide treat, but I ran out of time:

Open hand or closed fist (would be fine). (1060 words) by ariadnes_string
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Honourable Woman
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Atika Halabi/Nessa Stein
Additional Tags: Captivity

For a moment, Atika gives Nessa her body back.

That's probably it for the season. I have an urge to write some shameless, old-fashioned h/c, though, so if you want to enable me give me an excuse, suggests some characters/tropes in comments!

Here's the fic I wrote for [community profile] crossovering. It was hard as hell to write, and I'm not sure it was worth it. But I've now posted more Sherlock fic to AO3 than SPN fic, so there's that.

A Study in Madder (6974 words) by ariadnes_string
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV), Merlin (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, Mycroft Holmes, Anthea (Sherlock), Merlin (Merlin), Arthur Pendragon (Merlin), Gaius (Merlin), Uther Pendragon (Merlin)
Additional Tags: Episode: s01e01 A Study in Pink, but in Camelot

When John Watson returned to Camelot after a long absence, he made three vows.

The first of these, to turn his face from violence, he broke almost immediately. Mere days after re-entering the kingdom, he found himself standing once more over a dead body.

Hi! I have been lurking for weeks (months?), partly because I decided to finish my fic for this crossover exchange, instead of sensibly defaulting, and it ate up all the time I could reasonably devote to fandom (and wasn't really worth the effort, either). Anyway! The archive opened last night, and if you enjoy crossovers, you should check it out .

I received two lovely, really different, fics:

Rediscovery (3017 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Supernatural, X-Men (Movieverse)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, John Winchester, Bobby Singer, Impala
Additional Tags: mention of suicidal thoughts, Mutant!Dean
Series: Part 1 of Sentience and its Uses

She'd always known that her human was special. After all, Baby knew him best. It just took the others a little while to figure it out.

I haven't had much to do with SPN fandom for a while, but I'm always so glad to read about Dean--and this story makes his mutant abilities make so much sense.

Diagnosis: Murder (231 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: House M.D., Hannibal (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Greg House, James Wilson (House M.D.), Hannibal Lecter
Additional Tags: crossovering treat

Food and conversation.

I adored this snippet of (im)polite conversation, and wanted it to go on forever!

More soon about other stuff--hope you're all doing well!

First of all, thank you so much for writing a story for me! Any crossover in the fandoms I’ve requested would make me happy, so please just write what seems fun and interesting to you!

Posting my [ profile] intoabar fic before I take off for a week. The prompt was "James Hathaway walks into a bar and meets...the Pirate Captain."

The [ profile] xover_exchange fics are being posted! About 5-6 fics a day in a multitude of fandoms. Check it out if you like xovers!

Yesterday, I received an awesome Sherlock/White Collar fic: Life's a Play; We're Unrehearsed by [ profile] daymarket. Sherlock meets Mozzie--do I really need to say more? Okay, I'll tell you that Mozzie introduces Sherlock to the Gospel according to Mel Brooks. The fic is wonderful--it has a lot of heart as well as hysterically funny parts.

The exchange isn't anonymous, so I can tell you that my fic, a Sherlock/Grimm xover, is up, too: here.

also, because I am weak and I enjoy writing about Jews, I've signed up for this again.

A multifandom ficlet/art exchange focusing on female or Jewish characters,
and also some evil viziers.
Sign ups end on the night of Feb 3rd.
Rules, FAQs, and sign ups here!

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:

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!

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 :)

Title: Eight million stories out there and they’re naked
Fandoms: Hawaii Five-O, White Collar
Characters: Kono, Chin-Ho Kelly, Danny, Steve, Peter, Neal, Diana, Jones.
Pairings: none
Rating: PG
Word count: ~8K

Disclaimer: White Collar and Hawaii-Five O belong to their respective creators.
a/n: written for [ profile] jedibuttercup for [ profile] xover_exchange 2011.
a/n: title from Jay-Z, “Empire State of Mind”
a/n: many thanks to [ profile] norbelulah for the beta and to the [ profile] xover_exchange mods for their patience!

Summary: “We were supposed to go spear fishing this morning,” Chin said. “Steve never showed. Not answering his phone, either. Car’s in the driveway but there’s no one home.”

eight million stories out there and they’re naked )
ariadnes_string: (John smile)
This is for [ profile] alizarin_nyc, who unleashed the dogs of war, or unlocked the bunny hutch, or something, on this particular combo. It's not really a fic, more of an extended riff of the "what if x met y variety." No plot to speak of, just me feeling out the Whitechapel characters.

Title: Coattails
Fandoms: Sherlock, Whitechapel.
Rating: PG, gen, no pairings
Warnings/Spoilers: no--no plot spoilers for either show.
Word count: ~1.8K
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit.

Summary: Sherlock didn’t make friends, but every once in a while—every once in a great while—someone befriended him.

So. I left this prompt on the [ 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 [ 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.”

Title: Five Times Walter Bishop Met an Angel, and one that never happened.
Fandoms: Fringe/Supernatural
Characters: Walter Bishop, Peter Bishop, Olivia Dunham, Dean Winchester, Castiel.
Pairings: none
Rating: pg-13 (for drug use)
Word Count: ~4.2K
Spoilers: through the middle of S5 for SPN (with two gratuitously quoted lines from S6); through S2 for Fringe. Specific spoilers for Fringe 2.16 (“Peter”) and 2.23 (“Over There, Pt. 2”) and SPN 5.04 (“The End”).
Warnings: recreational drug use.
Disclaimer: Fringe and Supernatural belong to their respective creators.
a/n: many thanks to [ profile] dotfic for the extremely helpful beta! All remaining mistakes my own.
a/n: the main action of the story takes place between 5.02 and 5.04 for SPN, mid-S2 for Fringe.
a/n: quoted text, and one unmarked allusion from T.S. Eliot, The Wasteland and Little Gidding.
a/n: the idea that angels can move between alternate universes stolen from His Dark Materials, although that story has nothing to do with this one.
a/n: written for [ profile] ozmissage at the multifandom [ profile] xover_exchange and originally posted over there.

Summary: Castiel’s search for God brings him into Walter Bishop’s life—again.

Title:We Hitch an Awesome Ride
Fandoms: SPN/Percy Jackson and the Olympians (book ‘verse)
Rating: PG-13 for language.
Genre: Monster-battle-gen-fluff. What? That’s a genre!
Word Count: ~4.5K
Warnings/Spoilers: Not really. Set vaguely in SPN S5, but no plot spoilers for the season. No plot spoilers for the PJ&O books, except for vague mentions of backstory.
Disclaimer: All characters belong to their respective creators. Not mine, no profit.

a/n: Feel free to imagine Logan Lerman et. al. in this, but it’s set pretty firmly in the PJ&O book ‘verse. Which isn’t all that different, except that the kids are a little younger, and Annabeth is blond. Consider this a rec. for the books, though: everyone I know who starts reading them to their kids ends up sneaking off to finish them themselves.

a/n: for [ profile] waxbean, who requested PJ&O fic at the [ profile] help_haiti event back in January, with a big thanks for her generosity, patience, and willingness to let me try something I’ve wanted to do for a while!

Summary: Percy and his friends get a lift from some guys who might know as much about monsters as they do.

Title: Sleepers Awake: an epilogue for the end of days.
Rating: gen, pg-13.
Word count: ~6K
Spoilers: for ALL aired episodes of Merlin and Supernatural. And Arthurian legend.
Disclaimer: Not mine, no profit.
Summary: When Arthur left the cave, alive again after so many centuries, the first thing he saw was an angel..

a/n: a sequel to or time-stamp for Two Boys from Kansas in King Uther’s Court. I don’t think it’s necessary to have read that one to understand this one: just know that the S1 Winchester spent some time in Camelot with the S1 boys from Merlin, and encountered some demons while they were there. There are no plot spoilers for TBfK in this fic.
a/n: I had a lot of help with this one. Much love and gratitude for the generous and astute readings the fic received from [ profile] callistosh65, [ profile] calamitycrow and [ profile] debbiel66--it is infinitely better for them! All remaining mistakes my own.

a/n: for [ profile] anniehow, for winning a guessing game, and for giving me the much needed encouragement to finally finish this.

Legend tells us that Arthur did not die after the last battle. Instead, he cast his sword into the lake, and gave his body into the care of its Lady, who graced him with a profound sleep. Legend differs as to the location of his resting place: some say he slumbers still in Avalon; some that he sleeps under a hill in Wales. But wherever it is, there he lies: the once and future king.

I still have a couple of hours of rl work to do, so of course I’m procrastinating.

I’ve been seeing a WIP meme a lot on my flist:

Post a sentence (or two or a paragraph) from as many of your WIPs as you want, with no explanation attached

So I took a look through my files, and what do you think I found? Four crossovers and one AU. Because apparently I am a one-trick pony. And I think everyone should meet the Winchesters. No really. Everyone.

Here are excerpts from each, in descending order of how likely it is that they’ll ever be finished.

Guess the fandoms involved in all four x’s, I’ll write you a xover ficlet of your choice (or a single-fandom fic) (if, y'know, you want a fic...)

ariadnes_string: (Default)
I’ve been meaning to post these forever.

1. Everyone should meet the Winchesters

I didn’t have time to read as many of the fics posted for the [profile] xover_exchange challenge as I would have liked, but here are a few of the SPN crossovers I enjoyed. If you enjoy crossover, though, you should go check out the whole site—there are some amazing combos—ones that made me wish I watched more TV.

Monsters vs. Aliens by [ profile] strangevisitor7
Bobby and Mulder are old friends. If that isn’t canon, it should be!

SPN/Star Trek
Balance of Terror (and Zombies) by [ profile] jaune_chat and [ profile] brighteyed_jill
Authors’ summary: Sam, Dean, and Castiel encounter some mysterious strangers, one of whom is experiencing some scarily familiar symptoms.. I’ll just add that this fic goes a long way towards redeeming one of my least favorite SPN episodes.

Stolen Soul by [ profile] jaune_chat
Author’s summary: Dean is stolen and taken to the Dollhouse to prevent him from ever fulfilling his destiny. Sam has to try to find him while he and Castiel attempt to avert Apocalyptic signs from destroying the city. Meanwhile, the inhabitants of the Dollhouse find their newest member may have more to him than his story suggests.
I don’t know anything about Dollhouse except the premise, but this is a great SPN S5 fic.
