The A-Team

The A-Team was one of those shows I tried not to like when I was a teenager. Because I was one of those dorks with principles. It was too violent, it was goofy, blah blah blah. But underneath it all, I had a deep and abiding (platonic) love for Murdock, and a deep and abiding (not-so- platonic) love for Hannibal. Hey, what can I say? I was a precocious little tyke.

When I finally got back into A-Team many years later, I became hooked on the show for its tongue-in-cheek humour, its exploration (however spotty) of the experiences of the Special Forces in Vietnam, and, of course, because Hannibal was still just as hot to me now as he was then. So I wrote a Hannibal/Maggie story, and figured that was it.

And then I discovered Face/Murdock slash. Which at first shocked me. I mean, jeez, they're Green Berets, people. It's just...not... possible. Is it?

Well. With the aid of amazing writers like emmastark, I convinced myself that it was possible, and that I could write it. Hence began my descent down the slippery slope of slash (say that ten times fast). And I haven't looked back since.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Die Hard

This is one of those fandoms that caught me by surprise. I've always had the beeg love for Bruce Willis, but have never had the urge to slash him until the unlikely pairing of John McClane, hardass and slightly curmudgeonly cop, and Matt Farrell, weedy tech geek extraordinaire, smacked me right between the eyes in Live Free or Die Hard. From then on, it was only a matter of time before I started writing this very odd, strangely sweet couple. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

I stumbled upon Fraser/Kowalski fic by accident, never having seen the slash potential when I watched the show in its original run. Now, I am hooked. Oh, man. Kowalski is just too much fun to write. However, I still love Ray V to distraction, so no Ray-wars here, please.

Really. Aren't they the cutest?

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Short Stories

Theories of Flight A story meant to accompany the episode "Good for the Soul." Rated PG-13.

Mister Instinct The inevitable post- "Mountie on the Bounty" story. Rated NC-17.

Bell, Book and Mountie A due South retelling of the classic film "Bell, Book and Candle." Yes, you read that right. F/K, NC-17, AU.

due South Flashfiction Stories

These ones are written for a great LiveJournal community, due South Flashfiction. They're supposed to be no longer than 1000 words, but some are slightly longer than that. (!) All are F/K, and all rated PG-13 for language and adult content unless otherwise noted.

Treat "You're too damned beautiful, that's your problem."

Nothing To See "I - " Fraser took a deep breath. "I don't need curtains."

Understood Right around the time they had that Talk with them in school, he started dreaming about the guy.

Jerk "Would you have me say I was hideously embarrassed? Does that fit your perception of me?"

Geography Lesson It was only after they became lovers that Chicago started shrinking.

Inertia (parts 1 and 2) "You taking a poll? How Long it Takes for your Partners to Fall Head over Heels?"

Graces It wouldn't kill him to be nice. Right?

Evidence I don't want to wake up in five years with no memory of your voice. Your hands. The way you -

After You (NC-17) It took a while for Ray to notice the pattern.

Dancing Bear (NC-17) He didn't care if the dance wasn't a real Indian dance. Or if the guy wasn't a real Indian. Or if the whole town folded up at night into a big vinyl suitcase.

Without A Paddle He feels like a dick in his May West, which he imagines makes him look like a puffy orange marshmallow with toothpicks sticking out.

Take Me Out "Yes, but if each team makes the same number of outs, won't the game always come out even?"

Strip "I'm not too big on the Trapper Joe stuff, but romance I can definitely get behind."

Trap Door If anybody was going to be sharing Fraser's underwear, he wanted it to be him.

What She Doesn't Say (G) It's not completely a lie, but it's still a sin, a sin of omission.

Talk Dirty (NC-17) He was killing me here, and we hadn't even started.

Thaw (NC-17) The first touch warms.

Expecting "You are Clyde Fraser Kowalski, and you are beautiful, and you are our son."

Return Policy "Look, throw it in the garbage, throw it in a snowbank, okay? I don't need it."

Ceremony "Why didn't we ever get married?"

Trick (NC-17) "Wh--what about the boots?" gasped Ray. "Had...plans..."

Under the Influence Fraser. Hammered. Well. This was different.

Hot Tub (NC-17) It was all his fault. This never would've happened if Fraser hadn't had him along as dead weight--

No Experience Necessary "I like that you get--enraged--on my behalf."

Head Trip (NC-17) Actually my longest dS story yet, six Flashfiction challenges cobbled together into one fic, because I was too lazy to come up with six separate ideas. About 7500 words.

Expiration Date (NC-17) "Why didn't you tell me? Were you even gonna see me while you were there?"

Afterglow "Newsflash, Frase. I'm a guy."

Father Figure One day, he would show his father that he could be his own man.

Say Cheese "Why don't you go back where you belong and let me get on with missing you, huh?"

Seeing Red "Tourists did this to you? What the hell were they, armed?"

Lost In Translation "You do everything right, and you don't even know it." Available as a podfic at my podfic page.

Taste Test "Well, I'd never have considered my son particularly interesting either," Bob huffed, "until I saw - Lord."

Ordinary Saints "You're not a saint, and this isn't a miracle. This is - us."

Too Close (NC-17) Whatever happened next, Ray could be damned sure it wasn't going to be boring. Or easy.

Duet (NC-17) "My hands? You kissed my hands the night before you left, when you thought I was asleep-"

Point A to Point B "Well, see, it's like this. I wanted to be proud."

Impressions “He’s alive. You’re alive. That’s all that matters. That’s everything, son. Believe me.”

Fall From Grace ...no way was he going to sit there clutching Fraser’s hand and crying over him. That wasn’t the way to get to him anyway.

Falling Star Okay, so he and Fraser had once worked and fought and eaten and laughed together, been willing to die for one another; that didn’t mean they couldn’t eventually become strangers to one another, too.

The Morning After The morning after the night before, Ray lay in a pool of sunlight and stared at it.

Third Time's a Charm As usual, Ray's timing sucked. (Also: Dear lord. My 50th due South story.)

Public Display Ray was really sick of making mistakes like this. NC-17.

Reset Written for Brooklinegirl in ds_seekritsanta, December 2004. Ray/Ray, NC-17. Standing in a putridly pastel bowling alley watching Vecchio throw strike after strike was not his idea of a fun Friday night—Saturday morning—whatever—but who said this had anything to do with fun?

And speaking of Christmas, you must, must, must see Tara's amazing artwork, Twelve Ways to Make Ray More Canadian, also created for ds_seekritsanta. She's amazingly talented, and since this was my Christmas prezzie, I procured her permission to display it here. Thanks, Tara!

Commitment Written for brooklinegirl's birthday, May 2006. Ray's birthday present isn't the one he was expecting.

Spring Thaw The change of seasons brings a transformation. R.

Harry Potter

I started in the Harry Potter fandom in early 2003. Before I'd read any of the books, I'd become hooked on Snape/Hermione stories, particularly Abby's impressive work. However, once I devoured the books and fell head over heels for JKR's incredible creation, Harry James Potter, it wasn't long before I was going down that slippery slope again, this time dragging the Boy Who Lived along with me. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Hawaii Five-0

There was no hope of my resisting these two from day one. I have no idea what CBS thinks it's doing, but this "bromance" is so obviously sporting an unnecessary "b" it's not even funny. Steve McGarrett is all the way gone on his partner Danny Williams, and there's no doubt Danny is falling just as hard. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Motive and Method The standard undercover-in-a-gay-bar cliché, complete with fellatio. NC-17.

Christmas Tradition Steve and Danny start a new holiday tradition. NC-17.

When It's Nice and Cold Steve and Danny need to warm up. PG-13.

Riding on Two Wheels Steve has a surprise for Danny. PG.

Wake-Up Call Not your typical Saturday morning. PG.

Sugar Rush Danny didn't know it was a date. R.

Absolute Beginners Co-written with TheGrrrl. Steve sees Danny surfing and the rest is history. NC-17 (link goes to the AO3).

I Spy

I need another fandom like I need a hole in the head, but I could not help but succumb to the joy of I Spy from the moment I watched the first episode. It's a marvelously cracked show that knows it's marvelously cracked, and the fact that both Robert Culp and Bill Cosby (yes, Bill Cosby) are smoking hot in it is another point in its favour. Add to that the smart, funny (often ad-libbed) dialogue, the great relationship between the characters, and the - oh yes, I almost forgot - the incredible gayness of many of their interactions, and you have a situation too tempting for a slasher to resist. I'm hoping to spread the love, because while I have lots I'd like to write, there's virtually nothing to read in this fandom, even gen. So get watching and get writing, folks!

Note to the Uninitiated: If you have never seen I Spy and want to get a feel for it, have a look at P.R. Zed's amazing vid "I Would Die for You" (bottom of page). It's a little more with the angsty than the series as a whole, but it shows the pretty and the lurve to great advantage. And if you are coming here from one of my other fanfic pages and thinking, OMGWTFBILLCOSBY, just take yourself on a stroll through my I Spy screencap galleries. You can also read more about the show here.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Looking Down at Heaven Scotty learns something about Kel he already knew, and learns something about himself in the process. NC-17. Also available in PDF format.

Lewis

In late 2011, I discovered Lewis and the utterly adorable pairing of Detective Inspector Robbie Lewis and his Sergeant, James Hathaway. Sure, there's a bit of an age difference, but what's a few years when romance is in the air?

I blame all of this on gaycrow and Laurence Fox.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

And We'll Talk in Present Tenses Lewis is too old for this. NC-17. Also available in PDF format.

Merlin

What can I say? Considering these boys are in their twenties, I feel a bit of a pervert writing in this fandom, but I can't help myself, because they're so damned adorable together - bitchy and playful and saving one another's lives on a regular basis. I am powerless to resist. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Short Stories

Merlin RPF

I also write Merlin RPF, which I currently post to two communities on LJ. If you don't know what RPF is, best to skip this. Otherwise, you can find out more at the Archive Of Our Own.

The Sentinel

This is all doll's fault. Just so you know.

It's hard not to become aware of The Sentinel if you're a due South fan, because many of the excellent writers in the fandom also have excellent TS stories. So you read a couple. Then you check out a couple of websites so you can get backstory, because the show was never aired in your neck of the woods. Then you see some publicity stills. Then you find a site devoted to all the slashy moments from the show.

Oh, dear.

Then someone (dolldolldoll) is good enough to send you tapes of every single episode, which you consume faster than soft centre Laura Secords. And then before you know it you've started on a fic, and you can't stop, because you're dying to get to the hot stuff.

Because Jim and Blair are just so in love. Oh, yeah.

And they're pretty together.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Short Stories

Many of these fics were written as responses to challenges on the

Sentinel Thursday LiveJournal community, a lovely group of supportive TS fans who write and comment. Another community I've found to be very helpful is TS Talk (made up of many of the same people), which is the place to go if you want to know which

floor Major Crimes is on, or anything related to the Boys.

Longer Stories

Equilibrium

Rating: NC-17

Warnings: Slash, language, explicit sex, violence.

Summary: Jim and Blair work on a case - and slowly enter a relationship of a different nature. The inevitable post TS-by-BS epic. Gorgeous title artwork by Nicci.

Equilibrium by Lorraine

Equilibrium by Lorraine

Lorraine created this delicious artwork based on one of the scenes from Equilibrium. Doesn't it make you want to read the story? Or at least lick your screen? (Click on the image to get to the artwork. Rated PG-13).

Smallville

I have a confession: I've fallen for Lex Luthor. Hard. That's the only thing that explains this page (well, that and the fact that he looks astonishingly pretty with Clark Kent). Lex as he's constructed on Smallville and played by the fabulously talented Michael Rosenbaum is one of the woobiest woobies who ever woobed. The fact that he's also pure sex and totally in love with Clark Kent (who when he meets him is in the ninth grade, and yeah, let's not even go there) is a major bonus. I'm absolutely positive that Shalott and Estrella are to blame for this one. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Coming Home Clark and Lex deal with the loss of a loved one. NC-17.

Into the Woods Clark and Lex go camping. Yeah, you read that right. NC-17 for mature themes.

Star Trek

What can I say about Star Trek? It was my first love (the original series, that is) and the first place I encountered fanfiction, fannishness and truly crazy people like myself. When I finally got around to writing something for publication on the Internet, I first turned to Star Trek. Deep Space Nine has been my favourite of the "new" Treks; I enjoyed the performances of the actors, the chances the show took with plots and ideas, and the multicultural nature of the cast. Voyager...well. I had many issues with that one, but two of the shining lights for me were Jeri Ryan and Robert Picardo, who always shone brighter when they struck sparks off one another. Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

In The Light of Morning DS9. My first Internet-published piece, an Odo/Kira story set after "His Way". R.

Galatea Redux Voyager. A Doctor/Seven story set a few months after "Someone to Watch Over Me." PG-13.

A Delicate Matter Voyager. Part two of "Galatea Redux". PG-13.

In Her Own Image Voyager. A [Janeway/Sullivan] story from Sullivan's POV. I only realized after I wrote this how much people absolutely, totally HATED the Sullivan character and the Fair Haven eps in general, because I had several Voyager fans write me and tell me how I had redeemed the character in their eyes (gosh!). R.

Janet d'Airo's artwork for Galatea Redux

Stargate Atlantis

The story of my entry into this fandom is a classic example of the fannish phenomenon known as pimping. On my first lost weekend among fellow slashers, I was exposed to many new shiny toys, including The O.C., Stargate: Atlantis, Numb3rs, The Invisible Man and Homicide. Though I can honestly say I enjoyed all of the above, I had no real urge to write any of them until I ventured into the Sheppard/McKay fanfiction, and then I was swiftly co-opted. The snarky vibe between the two of them - along with the fact they seem to get horizontal at the drop of a hat - is difficult to resist, and so I decided to save myself the pain and didn't even try. And it's going to be fun to get back into a fandom where the canon is still in the process of being written.

Note: I have recorded audio versions (podcasts and audiobooks) of several of my fics, hosted at jinjurly and now at my podfic page.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

Starsky & Hutch

This, too, is mostly doll's fault (it actually isn't, but I like blaming things on her). Although Kim and Witchbaby deserve some of the blame.

To be honest, I resisted this one as long as I could, because, well, I lived the '70's, and even as a kid I knew I was living in a pretty shitty decade. I mean, my god. The hair. The clothes. The music. Did I really want to go back in my time machine to that bell-bottomed and macraméd era?

Apparently I did, because I started reading some fanfic by Flamingo and Rosemary and others, and I knew it was only a matter of time before I would have to rent the DVDs. And then I sat around and stared at my TV screen until my jaw found a home on the floor.

Because, yes, the hair and the clothes and the music. But also: the slash.

Holy mother of K/S. This is as slashy as they come, folks.

You want real, undeniable, painfully obvious man-love? This is it, kids: the groping and the fondling and the hugging and the banter and the bitching and the looks they give each other as though no other relationship they ever find will even come close to this. And they'd be right, because Starsky and Hutch are as canon as you can get without being Queer as Folk.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.

The X-Files

I always had a love-hate relationship with the X-Files. The gratuitous violence annoyed me, CC's convoluted "canon" drove me up the wall, and the last season was a near-complete disappointment for me. Still, I watched, hoping for glimmers of characterization or plot lines that followed through on the original promise. Mostly I read fanfic. I had no aspirations to writing, since M/S was already such well-traveled ground, until Doggett appeared on the scene. Robert Patrick did an astonishingly good job with very little, and I was sad to see both his character and Annabeth Gish's treated in such cavalier fashion in the last season. So I gave Doggett and Reyes their own little adventures, on my turf - the past, and Montréal. The response I got from XF fans on these stories still warms me to this day.

All stories are rated PG unless otherwise noted. No graphic sex, violence or naked goat worship. Each one follows the other.

Please read about my warnings policy before you go any further. Thank you.
