saraid's cage is saraid's slash fanfic page. It started out as saraid's cognitive dissonance as part of Pumpkin's Slash Patch. When it was part of Pumpkin's Slash Patch, it was hosted by

saraid has gone and left her cage
her stories once were all the rage
she's left them here, on this old page
so they may be read by everyone
(and sage)

Saraid s cognitive dissonance.png

the vast majority of the fanfiction you will find here is slash. that means grown men doing the horizontal mambo, sometimes vertically. you are under the age of 18, wherever you might live, a conservative Republican, a homophobe, a self-righteous power-hungry freak, or any combination of those choices, it would be best for all concerned if you Leave Now.

If you choose to continue, this means you are a) declaring yourself to 18 years of age or older and you're promising not to flame, bomb, abuse, accuse or arrest me.

The word "slash" on the warning page links to the Foresmutters Project.

The Sentinel

Sentinel Stand Alones

all stories are Jim and Blair. All stories are rated NC17 unless otherwise noted.

Dirty Little Secret & Always Be

A dark, tense series, Dirty Little Secret was my attempt to fit an unwanted sexual relationship into actual series episodes, and it worked for a while. Sometime later, I wrote a shorter, sweeter series called Always Be. It wasn't until after I had finished it that I realized that one series followed the other. They don't have to be read together -- I just think they're better that way.

[ DLS: 7 stories, 199k total, violence and noncon. AB: 4 stories, 92k total, no warnings]

Goodnight, Love

A very long series of short scenes, written over a period of months. Written for Pumpkin. Currently unavailable because there's a zine coming out, information for which can be found here:

Kingdom of Senad

Once upon a time, there was a list. And the list was Senad. The people were kind and the world was new...The adventures of Sir James and Prince Blair in the Kingdom of Senad.

I wrote this series giving people on the Senad list parts in the play, as it were. Shit happened, I got upset, other people got upset, and the series ended. I still think sometimes about going back and writing that last story. It may still happen...stranger things have.

[3 stories, 189k total]

Panther Tales

Ten years ago, Jim and Blair were taken and tortured by the government for unknown reasons. They escaped, damaged, and now live strange, twisted lives as fabled mercenaries. Will they ever find their way back to the people they once were?

7 stories. 539k. NC17.

The zine is still available, with a wonderful cover:


My first long TS series. There's a guest spot for Frank Black (MillenniuM), drug use, and a horrific case that's slowly driving Blair to the edge, and bringing long-repressed memories to the surface. There's *graphic* violence and tons of angst. The last story is a little dorky, but I stuck it on there anyhow.

[4 stories, 604k total]

A Sentinel's Voyage

Voyager and Sentinel crossover. An unbonded Sentinel on Voyager must find a mate or die, but his planet's homophobic attitude isn't helping. Janeway will insist, Tom and Harry will assist, and eventually everything will work itself out. We hope. This series is complete as is, though I do plan to add another story eventually.

all of the X-Mens tories are part of a larger unfinished series. the series itself serves as the prequel to my unfinished magnum opus Crowded World. the series found here is presented in pieces because many of the completed stories are trapped on old Amiga disks and I can't get them out (if anyone knows how to do that, I would be forever grateful).

some years ago, saraid met a Pumpkin. and it was true love, at least for a little while. they became a sa and a squash, which made a Sasquash, a mythical being of slash-wrting goodness. but things ended, as they do, quietly and on a friendly note. the fic here is a legacy of that time. i hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.

The Sentinel

Shadow War: our first fic together. Pumpkin saved this one from the dustbin by agreeing to help me finish it. Faced with a reality he can't bear and with a hearty shove from Jim, Blair loses himself. Jim eventually finds him again. [187k, angst, J/B, NC17]

Sweet Memory: the opus. it took about two years, and all started with a vision i had of a wet, bedraggled, vulnerable Blair hitch-hiking... [933k total, AU, angst, 17-year-old Blair, NC17]

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Offering to Atlun: Qui and Obi do what it takes to save a planet. [22k, NC17]

Making Synergy: Our fist Phantom Menace story. Qui-Gon isn't what he seems to be, and Obi-Wan is grateful. [32k, NC17]

Skippy (name subject to change): this story isn't finished. we started it together ages ago and i am working on it, and Pumpkin will have a look at what i do and then i'll get it posted. A TPM/ Velvet Goldmine crossover; a stranger is found on a distant planet... and he's a perfect genetic match for Obi-Wan. (look for it this year)


Just to make this clear....

I so completely do not know these people....

thus, anything I write about them is absolute tripe:

Made up. Fiction. NOT REAL.

so far, the only RPS i've succumbed to is Backstreet Boys.

okay, with that out of the way... there are three stories here now, so I don't think

I'll be giving this up... I don't think certain readers will let me. I know I'm bad....

but it could always be worse. i tend to think of public person as characters,

separate from the real person. in public these guys are acting just as much

as they would be on the stage... which is how i rationalize this.


Something's wrong between Kevin and AJ, but AJ can't figure out what. (Kevin/AJ, 50k)

Everyone's Heroes

a Backstreet Boy AU.

When mutants begin to appear in America, the government claims them as their own.
