CheyanneChika recorded my Clint/Coulson story, Why SHIELD Has No Fraternization Policy. I love how she captured the characters, especially the Fury rants without needing to do a Samuel L. Jackson imitation. Go listen!

Walking on the beach listening to my iPod is good for prompting ballad pastiches, it seems! First time I've done this in Avengers fandom, though.

Title: Matty Groves, or, The Extraction
Pairing: Clint/Natasha/Coulson, Natasha/OMC
Warnings: Violence, Misogyny
Summary: Angelo Marioni only thinks he's the luckiest sonovabitch in the world, and Clint Barton hates extractions like these.
A/N: Another Ballad pastiche from me. Lyrics for "Matty Groves" can be found here. Thanks to [personal profile] cluegirl for beta duty!

"And you will strike the very first blow, and strike it like a man.
I will strike the very next blow, and I'll kill you if I can."

...okay, if I post a ficlet here, for a fandom I've never written in before, and say that the best way to read this is to not know what fandom it's for going in to the reading, 'cos the reveal is what makes it entertaining, but if you're familiar with the fandom it's more fun that way and is a little spoilery besides, will anyone read it?

*cricket noises*

Yeah, dumb, I know. Well, two lj-cuts then: the first cut will have the headers for the fandom if that's what it will take to let you know if you're willing to be spoiled and if you're at all interested; the second if you just want to leap in and take a chance. *weak laugh*

(If you want a hint, it's me doing the sort of notorious "violate the innocent source material" I'm known for.)

The Clint/Natasha comm [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised is having a comment fic fest today to upend all the usual clichés about our spyvenger duo: Natasha only drinks vodka, Clint sews them up in the field, Natasha's been a ballerina, Clint has mechanic skills, etc. I maxi-drabbled here: Tony-centric Clint/Natasha Opposite Day anti-cliché thingy.

I wrote a number of Six-word stories for the prompt over on the [livejournal.com profile] be_compromised Clint/Natasha Promptathon. Some silly, some angsty. (And the inevitable Budapest-y.) The link to the Six-word stories thread is here; I've also posted mine here behind the cut.

*chants in appropriate military fashion:* This is my Loki/Clint non-con fic. There are many like it but this one is mine.


Title: Corruption and Crème Brûleé
Pairing: Loki/Clint Barton
Word count ~6,000
Summary: Loki finds that Agent Barton is peerless. In all things. For a mortal. Which is unforgivable.
Warnings/Enticements: Mind Control rape, i.e., non-consensual smut with dubious consent flavors. Coded as both non-con and dub-con for different reader values of both.
A/N: From the moment Loki grabbed Hawkeye's wrist six minutes into the film, I knew I had a new fandom. And that I'd be writing this scenario.

Finished and posted! (Decided not to go anon. I've embarrassed myself worse before.) God, this was so hard, because it's the first thing I'm posting in my shiny new fandom, and it's essentially torture porn (you've been warned; no, REALLY, please see the warnings), so I kept plucking at it because I wanted it to have some pretentions of narrative. Plus it just kept growing, because Tony wouldn't shut his mouth.

Title: Weak Points
Fandom: The Avengers (movieverse)
Words: ~4000
Characters: Clint, Natasha, Tony, Thor, Bruce, Steve
Category: Serious effing Hurt/Comfort (mostly Hurt), Drama/Angst.
WARNING for intense torture/violence (non-sexual)
A/N: Anonymous requested Clint getting the s**t kicked out of his un-powered, mortal ass while the other Avengers are forced to watch. I asked myself, "What's the worst physical thing I can think of to do to Clint? Oh, yeah." Levels of abuse you can only do to a character you love; meant to be disturbing.

Yuletide reveals!

I discovered who created my Yuletide gifts! [livejournal.com profile] fyrie wrote my Mulan-Aladdin crossover, [livejournal.com profile] twistedchick wrote my 1776 Adams/Franklin, and [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore wrote my Rapunzel/Little Mermaid! You guys are wonderful. Thank you all again for a fabulous Yuletide!


So imma gonna reveal my own Yuletide fic and meta on it for a minute.

Title: Deuxième Appendice (Second Appendix)
Fandom: Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) by Choderlos de Laclos
Pairing: The Vicomte de Valmont/The Chevalier Danceny (with background canon pairings)
Summary: An additional collection of letters reveals that the conquests of the Vicomte de Valmont were not confined to the ladies of the controversy.
Words: ~7,000


I wrote for Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) by de Laclos, which you probably know has been done in multiple movie versions (and put John Malkovich on the hot badboys actor map). But if you've read the original material, you'll know the book is epistolary. The recipient, v_v_lala, was asking for Valmont/Danceny slash, which made me think the obvious response was to write all the letters that revealed that particular relationship. And the entire thing was written in my head at that moment, really; it was just a matter of getting it down on paper. Which is what all the cackling was about.

I knew that the story was going to appeal to a limited audience because that sort of lofty, 18th-century-fake-letter-writing-style-in-translation would not be everybody's cup of tea, but the opportunity to imitate that style was like a dam bursting. Not just delight but relief. The sick thing is, I nearly write like this every day, in work emails. No, really. I have to rein myself in when I begin to type, "What is wanted by the parties requesting these concessions is our receptive ear," and then I sob and backspace the whole thing and instead type, "The people who say they want these things really just want to know we're listening to them." Which, yeah, may be better writing but it makes me sad that the English language is as rich as it is and I don't get to play with it in the way it deserves.

So, anyway, I got to play with it for this story. You'll either like that sort of thing or not. If you do happen to like the style in the book of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, check out my fic.

Hey, I sat down with an HP plot bunny and wrote it! Hope you guys think it was worth the wait even if it's not as explicit as my usual. This story wanted things left more to the imagination, go figure.

Title: The Baron of Brackley
Author: Amanuensis
Summary: "It's afore I'm a man, avenged I'll be."
Characters/Pairings: Draco-centric; canon Lucius/Narcissa; Narcissa/Moody
Rating: PG for implications
Words: ~3500
A/N: Fifth in my Ballads series of pastiches; for [livejournal.com profile] goseaward, who introduced me to this ballad and said she wondered if I could do something for it. That was years ago but after writing it multiple times in my head I thought I should finally get it down. Lyrics for one version of The Baron of Brackley can be found here.
There's slight AU at play here; I have aged up Draco a bit for this point in canon history.
Much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fabularasa for beta duty.

The author of my wonderful The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly giftfic was miss_pryss, and my contribution to Yuletide was for a film I love, that I'd never have tried to write for without Yuletide to push me, and for a pairing I'd certainly have never tried to write without fated_attraction's prompt.

I wrote Inglourious Basterds fic, Archie Hicox/Bridget von Hammersmark, smutty-ish but not deeply filthy, (as befits Archie; he's a gentleman), about 2500 words.

Title: Unter einer Decke Stecken
Fandom: Inglourious Basterds
Pairing: Archie Hicox/Bridget von Hammersmark
Summary: fated_addiction requested: "Archie Hicox/Bridget von Hammersmark...He was a film critic, she was an actress. Were they old friends? Or was it just a chance encounter? What might've happened had they survived?"

My yuletide gift is so amazing I'm blushing. I saw The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly this year for the first time and fell under its spell, and all I could say about my slashvibe fantasies was that I wanted credible slashfic between The Good and The Ugly, but couldn't write it myself, couldn't go there. But someone did, for me, did it in all its NC-17 in-character glory. Oh, thank you, thank you, anonymous, thank you ever so much. It's exactly what I would have written if I could, right down the viewpoint (Tuco's), tense (present), and story length (perfectly setup/smut/denouement, no sludgy bits at ALL.)

If anyone else is keen go read Nothing Personal, Tuco/Blondie, about 2500 words of glorious hot western smut.

(Eee, I got young Clint Eastwood slash! --or, as the S.O. says to me in witness of my glee, "So, you do feel lucky, punk?")
