Assorted Fanfic by Me is a personal fanfiction site. It was last updated in 2010.

Welcome to my fanfic. If you choose to explore further, be warned that my favoured story genre is long, character-driven, angsty stories with plots, though I also write some humour. I don't write sex or swearing, though the general darkness and angstiness would make me rate most of this as not suitable for young children. I have done non-explicit slash in a couple of fandoms, but mostly write gen.

Stargate Atlantis

Fanfic by Eildon Rhymer (aka Rhymer23). Last updated in 2009.

I accidentally stumbled on a stray season one SGA episode in May 2007, and was hooked from the start. I took my time catching up on all the previous episodes, took a bit more time coming to terms with the characters... and then started writing. I have no intention of stopping in the foreseeable future, even though the show is now over.

The Dark is Rising

Last updated in 2007.

I didn't read The Dark is Rising when I was young. A teacher recommended it when I was 10, but I always perverse and contrary when it came to recommendations, and always took against anything anyone tried to get me to read. I didn't actually read the series until I was about 20, and I loved it. It had never occurred to me to write fanfic about it, though, until for some reason I started musing about the series in summer 2005, and was hit with a story idea... These stories have been posted under the name of Eildon Rhymer, except for the drabbles which I posted under the name of Rhymer23. *sigh* Life would have been a lot easier if I'd stuck to the same pseudonym throughout.

Two Worlds

This is my newest story, with chapter one posted on 9 July 2007. It is 128,000 words. Since 30 chapters take up quite a bit of space, I've put it on a separate page. The summary of the story reads: "Will and Bran meet up again as students in Oxford, but an unexpected enemy is stirring, and nothing will be the same again, for two young men, or for the world." It does contain mild slash, but no sex scenes. I've rated it R to be on the safe side. Two Worlds.

The World to Come

This is a long AU, based on the scenario that the Dark won at the end of Silver on the Tree, and the Light was reduced to a few scattered remnants, fighting to keep a tiny element of hope left in an increasingly dark world. The story covers 24 years, and shows how the major characters from the sequence fare in this new, darker world. Because it has a lot of chapters, I have put the story on a separate page here: The World to Come.

Walking Shadow

Summary: "Twenty years after. Memories are still lost, Will is still alone, and something is stirring..." Word count: 48,000 words Rating: PG-13 ish. Darkness and angst, but no sex or swearing. Genre: Angst. Character-heavy plot. Characters: Will, Jane, Bran. Pairings: No pairings, though hints of unrequited yearnings.

Walking Shadow 2: Falls the Shadow

Summary: Any summary would be a spoiler for book one. Basically it's a direct continuation, picking up one day after the end of the previous story. A summary of Walking Shadow is here, for people who have read it a while ago, and want a reminder. Word count: 66,000 words Rating: PG-13 ish. Darkness and angst, but no sex or swearing. Genre: Angst. Character-heavy plot. Content warning: Please click here if you want to read this, but it does constitute a spoiler. Main characters: Will, Jane, Bran. Pairings:No pairings as such, but various hints and yearnings.

Other Lives, Other Voices

Summary: This is a collection of ten short pieces, each between 1000 and 3000 words, that aim to show the events of The Dark is Rising (the novel, not the whole series) through the eyes of various minor characters. Word count: 22,000 words in total Rating: PG. Nothing objectionable, but I always default to PG, rather than G, just in case something objectionable has crept in without me noticing

Pictures in the Dark

Summary: "A young photographer finds a body, and becomes the uncomprehending witness to a terrible drama." Word count: 8,000 words Rating: PG-13 ish. Darkness and angst, but no sex or swearing. Genre: Angst. Character-heavy plot. Warning no. 1:References to a past gay relationship. It is in the past, it contains no sexual references, and it is between two original characters, rather than any Dark is Rising characters. Still, please don't read if such an idea offends you. Warning no. 2: The entire story is told through the eyes of an original character, who doesn't understand the full significance of what he is seeing. This means that there will be loose ends in the story, and some things left unresolved.

Falling

Summary: This is an expansion and continuation of this drabble, covering what happens in the years that follow. Word count: 5,000 words Rating: PG-13 ish. Darkness and angst, but no sex or swearing. Pairing/warning: This story is set in the context of an adult Will and Bran having a long-term, loving relationship, which has existed for years before the story starts. However, nothing at all happens "on camera", and someone who normally hates slash has read it and liked it a lot.

Once More, With Old Ones

Summary: This is a Dark is Rising version of the Buffy musical episode, "Once More, With Feeling". You don't need to know the original to understand this, though of course it does help.

The Devil You Know

Summary: A Dark Is Rising fanfic parody, in which Will and Bran desperately try to escape the world of the angst-writer, and find a better existence in another world. Rating: A very soft R (to be on the safe side) Pairing/warning: Well, Will and Bran do briefly visit the world of the slash-writer, with obvious consequences... Drabbles

Drabbles: These drabbles were (almost all) posted on the Darkisrising100 LJ community. I never, ever thought I'd be able to write a drabble, being a very wordy writer, but I was quickly hooked!

Since the list of drabbles was getting longer and longer, I have grouped them together by date, so you can read several in one file, without having to endlessly follow individual links.

Each collection includes the full range of moods and styles, including silly, parody, dark, or serious. All are between 98 and 102 words.

Diana Wynne Jones

I've loved Diana Wynne Jones books since I first read "The lives of Christopher Chant" some ten years ago. I'd never thought I'd write DWJ fanfic, though, since my natural medium seems to be angst, and I didn't think I'd be able to adapt to her style. When I finally tried it, though, I found it refreshingly easy. I have never written a story that flowed so stunningly fast as "A boy less ordinary." Section last updated September 2006, too add A Tale of Too Many Worlds

A Tale of Two Wizards

Rating: PG. Word count:15,000 words Summary: In which Howl is shoved through a bathroom door, and ends up somewhere else entirely, in the company of an impeccably dressed nine-lived enchanter. Much danger ensures, and even more bickering.

A Tale of Too Many Worlds

Rating: PG Word count:19,000 words Summary: (Sequel to "A Tale of Two Wizards", but you don't really need to read the first story to understand this one.) Awkward and Inconvenient things keep happening to Howl, involving evil doppelgangers and confusing other worlds. There is only one thing for it: visit Chrestomanci. And this time, the family is going, too.

A Boy Less Ordinary

Rating: PG-13. Nothing objectionable, but some scariness. Word count:17,000 words Summary: Thomas Brown is an unusual boy, trapped in an entirely normal family. Then, one day, Tom intones an innocent little word: "Chrestomanci." Normality is about to get very, very strange.

Seventh Son

This is a short story in the world of Howl's Moving Castle (book universe, not movie universe.) As with "A Boy Less Ordinary", it's told through the eyes of an original character. Rating: PG. (Would have been G, but Howl would start getting hopelessly drunk. Word count:3071 words Summary: Cedric is a seventh son of a seventh son, so of course it goes without saying that he will save the whole of Ingary. But what will happen when he quite literally bumps into a man in a rather impressive red and silver suit...?

Wicked Lady

This is an almost-but-not-quite sequel to Seventh Son. It features a different original character, who bumps into Howl and the others a little after Cedric leaves them. Rating: PG. Word count:3405 words Summary: "One day, she was painting cobwebs onto the ceiling, when in came her master's minions, carrying an unconscious young man in a red and silver suit...

Dark Lord

This is an almost-but-not-quite sequel to Wicked Lady, which was itself an almost-but-not-quite sequel to Seventh Son. (Confused?). It features yet another different original character, but this one bumps into Howl entirely deliberately. Rating: PG. Word count:3309 words Summary: When an aspiring evil-doer learns that a certain brightly-clad wizard stands between him and his reign of terror, it's clear what needs to be done. Actually doing it, on the other hand…

The Magnificent Seven

I watched the Magnificent Seven TV series in January 2010, and was immediately inspired to write about it. It took a while before I actually got anything down on paper, though. I honestly don't know if I'll write more in the fandom. I do have a few vague ideas, but I also have ideas in a different fandom, and I don't know which set of ideas will shout louder.

Scotching the Snake (posted 24 April 2010 - c. 50,000 words)

Rating: PG-13. Some violence, but it's not particularly graphic Spoilers: Spoilers for the entire series, with particular reference to Serpents and Obsession Content: Gen. Drama, angst (loads of it), h/c (Ezra.) Main characters are Ezra, Buck and Chris, in that order of priority. The rest of the Seven do appear, but aren't viewpoint characters. Summary: The Seven ride against a dangerous gang, and two strangers come to town. As the sun beats mercilessly down, trust is eroded and suspicions grow, threatening the future of the Seven, and the life of one of their number.

If at First You Don't Succeed (posted 25 April 2010 - c. 5,500 words)

Rating: PG. Content: Gen. Kind of humorous, but also some character study and a bit of angst. This is an Ezra story, set when he's 19 or 20. Summary: A younger Ezra attempts to master a new skill. The results are somewhat… unfortunate.

Queen's Thief

I love the series of books by Megan Whalen Turner, that start with The Thief. I don't imagine I'll ever write normal sort of fanfic about it - at least, not until the after the final book has appeared - but I found myself with the urge to write an outsider viewpoint story about our hero. I've also added some silly pastiches.

Snow and the Setting Sun (posted here 24 April 2010, but posted on LJ last summer)

Rating: PG. Some mentions of wounds and violence, but nothing particularly graphic Spoilers: Spoilers for the first three books in the series. This was written before the fourth book came out. Content: Outsider viewpoint. H/C. Drama. 7000 words Summary: On a day of unprecedented cold, a wounded stranger arrives at a remote farmhouse and changes everything.

A collection of pastiches (posted here 24 April 2010, but posted on LJ last summer)

Rating: PG. Spoilers: Nothing really - but will make more sense if you know the books Content: Humour. Pastiche Summary: Three hapless authors find their works invaded by a certain thief...

The X-Files

All of these stories were written between 1996 and 1998, and posted on the alt.tv.x-files.creative newsgroup, and on an X-Files mailing list. They're all still out there on some old archives, but I took down my own site when I moved on to other things at the end of 1998. I've not read them since then; my style has moved on and changed.... but here they are, for old times' sake. (One thing I should add at this point is that I stole someone else's pseudonym, since at that time the person who already owned it didn't think they'd ever get involved on the Internet. They've now claimed it back. So there is still a "Pellinor" who is active on various (non-fanfic) forums, but it's not me. It's just the person I'm married to.)

Long and angst ones

Inferno trilogy These three linked stories were my very first fanfics. I remember posting them in utter terror and dread, and not getting much feedback. I assumed few people had liked it, so was utterly amazed to find myself winning third prize as "best angst writer" in the X-Files fanfic awards when I'd only been posting for a couple of months, and hadn't even finished this series.

Inferno original summary: Mulder finds himself engulfed in a nightmare when he gets too close to a complex web of murder and revenge. Can Scully, distracted by doubts of her own, help him before it's too late?
Purgatorio original summary: When a woman apparently kills her husband and claims no memory of the event, for once it is Scully who believes there is more to it than meets the eye, especially when she uncovers a possible link to her own disappearance. But when the murders continue, Mulder comes up with a theory of his own - a theory which threatens to tear them both apart...
Paradiso orginal summary: While Scully attempts to undo the damage wrought by recent events, Mulder gets drawn into a web of intrigue that could easily lead him to the truth, but could just as easily destroy him.

And, finally, here is something I must have written before posting "Paradiso". I've no idea why I wrote it, or where I posted it, but it appears to be some musings on the development of this trilogy, and its themes.

Malleus Maleficarum My second long fanfic, and one of the darkest and most bleak ones I wrote. It also comes complete with a ridiculously long and pretentious author's note at the end, analysing all the themes. Not long after I posted this, I read a children's/young adult novel that had a rather similar theme, and even gave the baddie the same name! It was just a coincidence, though, due to both me and that author drawing on a theme and character name from folk tale.

Original summary: A stranger with a tempting offer promises hope in Mulder's time of need. Refusal could cost him and Scully their lives, but could the price of acceptance be greater still?

Resurgam This story was the first one I ever wrote that merited an "R" for "romance," though as I say in my notes, it really isn't a romance. I don't do romance. It's angst, of course. Need you ask? I seem to remember that quite a few people cited this is their favourite of my stories... but they still gave me death threats about my failure to write a sequel. Hmph. Some people are never happy.

Original summary: Mulder and Scully struggle to come to terms with an "accident" that threatens to change their lives for ever, unaware that the danger is still far from over.

Another Country Well, this isn't a very useful summary, is it? I must have had a reason for such vagueness. I think some different people used to cite this as their favourite of my stories, too.

Original summary: Mulder finds the key, while Scully faces an old enemy.

Leviathan

This story, on the other hand, was my favourite amongst my long stories. It invaded my dreams. It's a very lose crossover with Stephen King's "The Stand", but not in such a way that you need to read that book. It's a real End of the World fic, written before the year 2000, when the Millennium Bug felt like a real possibility.

Original summary: Many years ago, in a smoke-filled room, the men of shadows signed away the future of mankind. The date was set; and now the date has come. It has come...

The First Stone

The First Stone 2: After the First Death These two stories are much shorter than the others on the page, but I feel they belong here, rather than in the short stories section. I originally rated the first story NC-17 for violence, but I'd say R now. It was the first time I wrote something so extreme, and I was being over defensive. I got a lot of feedback on this one, some of it very moving.

Original summary: Three agents working on the same murder case have apparently committed suicide. While investigating, Mulder makes a painful discovery that puts him in very real danger of becoming the fourth.

Short and angsty ones

Cry in the dark I probably for more feedback for this story than any other story I wrote. All I can say is, "I'm sorry!"

Original summary: Mulder's in the hospital again - or is it something much worse?

Ceremonies of Innocence Oh. Apparently this was my first short story. It was inspired by the Robert Cormier novel, "I am the cheese."

Original summary: A psychiatrist attempts to recover the traumatic events concealed in a patient's memory. But, sometimes, forgetting is essential to survival...

The Fisher King

Original summary: Mulder has been shot, and Scully wants to know why; but, sometimes, getting what you most want can be the worst thing of all.

Dreams of Fair Horses

Original summary: Why does a killer leave notes? As a serial killer toys with investigators like a cat with a mouse, Mulder and Scully find out what it is to predict a murder but to be powerless to prevent it.

Sailing Calmly On This story was inspired by Auden's poem "Musee Des Beaux Arts". The theme of this poem is how ordinary people often don't see the signifance of the great and tragic events that happen in the background of their lives, as they pass by, thinking of their own little concerns. I returned to the same theme many years later in the Dark is Rising fanfic, Pictures in the Dark. Original summary: The end of the X-Files, seen through the eyes of three who neither understand nor care.

Saving Her I actually posted this story under a different name, because I was embarrassed about it. It came from a shamelessly melodramatic little story I made up in my head over months. Original summary: A kidnap; a rescue attempt. But who will pay the price?

Caradhras Nothing to do with the Lord of the Rings, really, except that the mood of it was inspired by a scene in the Lord of the Rings, and a snowy mountain comes into it. This was a departure from my usual style, since it's a fairly long set-up, but told in small fragments. I liked it. Original summary: Mulder and Scully confront the prospect of defeat, and maybe something even worse.

The Innocent Spring
The Midsummer Burning
The Fall of the Leaf
The Dead of Winter

Oh, gosh, I'd forgotten this series. I liked these! They're AU, in which everything is the same about the world... except for one little thing that happened differently some 20 years before. Original summary: It began with a choice, and the choice changed the lives of so many. Now, in a world that is not quite as we know it, Scully finds a body at her door, and it could change her, again, forever.

The Buried Life
The Hills and the Sea

Two stories that are linked, but can be read in either order. They tell a similar story, but one is set in the "real" world, and one is set in the AU from "The Innocent Spring" series.

Original summary for "The Buried Life": Elizabeth Mulder has withdrawn from the world, forgotten how to love. As danger reaches out for her son, can she bring herself to make contact? Original summary for "The Hills and the Sea": Elizabeth Mulder has built a new life over the grave of the old, salvaged some happiness. The dead were never supposed to return....

Through a Glass Darkly
Through a Glass Darkly 2: Face to Face

Original summary: As he awaits his victim, a gunman is driven towards insanity by "memories" that don't appear to be his own.

Another Such Victory Original summary: Three years on, Scully lets herself remember Mulder's greatest victory.... and his greatest betrayal. Is it too late for reparation?

Gilded Cage Original summary: After a kidnapping, Mulder and Scully need to fight to survive.

A Game of Dark Original summary: A late night chase after a dangerous criminal leads to some important decisions, but could also lead to death.

Short and silly ones

Once More with X-Files Written 2007. 8 years after my last X-Files piece, I suddenly got hit with the urge to create an X-Files version of the Buffy episode, Once More With Feeling. The result is here: Once More With X-Files. It's set in around season 3, so no spoilers for anything after that.

The Awful Truth I think this was my first "Humour Angst" piece. Fanfics with this premise are now ten a penny in most fandoms, but back in 1997, when internet fanfic was in its infancy, I believe this was quite original. Hey, maybe I created the genre! (No, I don't really believe that.)

Original summary: Mulder and Scully discover the Truth, and it's rather horrible. Characters die with lots of angst, but this is a humour piece - honest.

Awful Moments Not really a sequel to the previous story, but a kind-of sequel. Someone was foolish enough to say that no-one, no-one, could write a humorous story about one particularly angsty happening in the X-Files. This was my response.

Original summary: A dying Scully bids farewell to Mulder - or does she?

The Best-Laid Plans What? Did I actually post this one? Very strange. I do remember Cyril, the Trainee Man-In-Black, though. Only last year, my Ars Magica role-playing character had an innocent squire called Cyril, in honour of him.

Original summary: Mulder, on a daring quest for a suitably dramatic denouement to this story, finds his efforts hampered by a trainee Man-in-Black who seems to have strayed in from some heart-warming rags-to-riches saga that probably involves Christmas and Lassie and sickeningly cute kids (though these don't have speaking parts, thank God). However, he has the heroic and ever-obliging narrator on his side, so what can go wrong?

Cup-Cake This story is not about cup-cakes, but the title makes sense (um, I think) in a strange sort of way. The alternative title would be, "I was rejected by aliens!"

Original summary: Mulder wants the truth, but does the truth want him?

Felonious Little Plans This one I rated R for sexual references (though, really, I couldn't write explicit sex even if someone offered me a million pounds. I just can't do it.)

Original summary: So what does the Consortium get up to between one Mytharc episode and the next?

The Unconquered Flame A satire of fandom and fanfic and flame wars, with lashings of angst, and a guest appearance by Mary-Sue.

Original summary: The truth is found where you least expect it. The true enemy could be just like you, or me...

Heavenly Creatures This is one of the only stories I have ever written that was in the first person. I enjoyed it, so I'm not sure why I've not done it again. The narrator is somewhat... unusual.

Original summary: How do you commit murder when you're dead? Sometimes, being in heaven can be such a bore....

Junk Mail Oh yes, I remember this one well! It made me chuckle for weeks, remembering writing it. Features a return appearance by "Cyril the Trainee 'Them'" from The Best-Laid Plans

Original summary: Hurry, hurry, hurry! This is your lucky day! You have been specially selected to receive this incredibly exciting offer! Open this story now and you - yes, you! - could... er... well, read it, I suppose. Or, alternatively, there is the Boring Summary: Mulder receives some junk mail.

The Rime of the Ancient Librarian As you can probably guess from this story, I am a children's librarian, so this is full of jokes and references that amuse me no end. I think they amused others, too.

Original summary: Ever wondered how the Consortium train their little ones to grow up into cold-hearted killers? At last, one person is brave enough to tell the truth.

Nasty, Big, Pointy Teeth

Original summary: A minor character demands to be noticed, and blood, danger, pointy teeth and other fun things ensue.

No Smoke without Fire Another satire of fandom etc. Another story in which I kill off 99 percent of fanfic writers.

Original summary: I have seen the future, and it is seriously scary....

Tour of Duty I wrote this after visiting the FBI when on holiday to America. Another fanfic writer said, "Imagine Mulder leading tour parties," so I did. This is the result.

Original summary: Mulder gets an.... um.... interesting new assignment.

Star Wars TPM

Please read this warning!

Only one of these stories was ever posted. The rest were written purely for my own enjoyment. Therefore, they are un-edited, self-indulgent, and not tightly plotted.

I spent over a year writing Star Wars fanfic for my own enjoyment. I really enjoyed it, and I learned a lot about writing while doing so. Yes, the writing is purple and not at all good, but that didn't matter. What mattered was that I learned to let the characters take over, and write without a detailed plan. I let the story tell itself, without having to worry about what fans would want, or how people would react. I'm incredibly glad that I wrote all of these.

Most of these stories feature slash, between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, though I never write graphic stuff. They all features lots of angst, especially on the part of Obi-Wan. Some of them draw on the back-story presented in the "Jedi Apprentice" novels - i.e. that Qui-Gon had an apprentice called Xanatos, who turned to the Dark Side, and made Qui-Gon rather cold and bitter and slow to trust.The Shadow of Turning

I actually posted this one. It's rated PG-13 for violence and angst, and has no slash in it. Summary: After a serious accident, Qui-Gon Jinn and his restless young apprentice are plunged into a web of revenge and hatred that could result in their deaths.... or worse.

Chosen

Another AU. I do like Star Wars AUs! This one is rated R for violence and torture, and also contains non-graphic slash. Summary: Obi-Wan is captured by Xanatos. What he endures in his captivity causes him to access the Force in a way that no-one else has ever dreamed of. The result tears the Jedi apart.

Thief

This story shamelessly steals from the old computer game, "Thief." It steals a baddie, a setting, and a chunk of plot. This is rated R for violence. There is also non-graphic slash. Summary: In an AU where the Jedi are not like the Jedi we know, Obi-Wan has been thrown out of the Order, and now lives as a thief. Qui-Gon comes across him ans has nothing but contempt for him, but the true situation could be a lot more complicated than either of them know.

Keepers of the Flame

Another one with stealings. Part of the premise draws from a children's novel by Catherine Fisher, and some of the names are stolen from the Outremer series by Chas Brenchley. Rating: R (probably) for darkness, violence, and non-graphic slash. Summary: Yet another AU. In a desert world long after some forgotten Apocalypse, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are caught up in a revolution that is targeting their kind. The events could tear them apart, but could also lead them to discovering just what happened in their world so long ago.

A New Hope

Rated NC-17 (to be safe) for violence and torture, though mostly not too graphic. This is an AU version of A New Hope, in which Qui-Gon, one of the last remaining Jedi in a world conquered by the Dark, took young Luke Skywalker is his apprentice, believing him to be the Chosen One. But Luke died. Then a stranger called Obi-Wan stumbles across Qui-Gon's path... Some character names stolen from the game Baldur's Gate, which might be a bit distracting to people who've played that game. I can never come up with names!

A children's story

Should I? Should I? Probably not, but oh well... This was a bout of naughtiness and sillness. I'm a children's librarian, so here an adult-rated children's story about Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon.

Robin Hood

I never really intended to write Robin Hood fanfic, but somehow I did... I initially thought I'd be most interested in writing about Robin and Guy, since the pre-series publicity photos were pushing these two as the main characters, and Guy is so very hot. But already, by week four, my interest in Guy has waned, as a result of him not actually doing much. (That's doing much, note, not doing Much.) I suspect I have now given my fanfic loyalty to Much instead. 31st October 2006

Fallen enemies

Rating: PG-13. Slashy hints, rather than anything else. Spoilers: Set after the end of the second episode. However, some of the character background described here (i.e. the reason Robin left the Holy Land) has since been semi-contradicted by the series Word count: 2,600 words Summary: Robin goes for a walk in the forest to escape his demons, and encounters an enemy

Hunted

Rating: PG-13 - verging on R. Nothing explicit, but the references to past slashiness are rather hard to ignore. Spoilers: Set after the end of the third episode. It also follows on from "Fallen enemies". Word count: 3,100 words Summary: Sir Guy of Gisburne goes hunting for his enemy

Watching Robin's back

Rating: PG-13. A brief and very vague reference to a Robin/Much slashy episode in the past. Spoilers: Set after the end of the fourth episode. You can read it as following on from my previous two Robin Hood stories, but equally you can read it as being self-contained Word count: 2,100 words Summary: "Much had been losing Robin all his life"

Primeval

Primeval is a TV series that started airing in the UK early in 2007. The basic premise is that mysterious "anomalies" are opening up in various locations, which serve as portals back into prehistoric times. Various monsters come through and rampage around in the modern day, and our heroes try and deal with it. Nick Cutter is an evolutionary biologist, and Stephen is his lab assistant. Connor is a geeky student, and Abby is a reptile expert from the local zoo. Claudia is civil servant involved in hushing all this up, and Lester is her boss. Helen is Cutter's wife, who went missing 8 years ago, near an anomaly... I did enjoy writing both of these stories (which I posted on LJ, using my ladyofastolat name) but Stargate Atlantis leapt out and grabbed me a few months later, and I'm very strictly monogomous in my fandoms, totally unable to write in more than one at a time, so I never wrote more.

Big and Scary

Rating: PG. Well, probably G, but I prefer to err on the safe side. Spoilers: Very vague hints about something that happened at the end of series one, but not enough to spoil it for someone who hasn't seen it. Actually, I think this story would probably make perfect sense even to someone who's never seen the series at all. Genre: Humour Word count: 3000 words Summary: Stephen is all alone with something Big and Scary.

Broken Images

Rating: PG Spoilers: This is a post-episode story for the final episode in the first series (i.e. episode six.) It follows directly on from the episode, and deals with the consequences of the episode. Word count: 8000 words Summary: Aftermath and consequences. To say any more would be a spoiler.
