Yahtzee Genre Edition is Yahtzee's fanfiction site. Except for the Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan slash in TPM fandom the site features mostly gen and het fanfiction. It has five separate pages which are linked from the main page. The last page is linked twice.

  • Thought Brackets - "What kind of fic did Yahtzee write back before she knew how to write at all?"
  • Gotterdammerung - "What happens when a regular old gen writer sees The Phantom Menace and discovers she's a slasher?"
  • insect reflection - "How many different ways can BTVS characters be made to travel through time?"
  • chivalry is dead - "In how many diferent ATS stories has Yahtzee mentioned Velga demons?"
  • Yahtzee's New Fic - "How many 'ships can Yahtzee possibly manage to write for Harry Potter fandom?" and "What sort of fic does Yahtzee expect she'll be writing next?"

Thought Brackets

Thought brackets.jpg
Archived here are the first fanfiction stories I ever wrote. Among them are stories about "The X-Files," the classic "Star Wars" trilogy and "Star Trek." Some of these stories haven't stood the test of time or experience, but are archived here under the principle of full disclosure. Others, I think, stand up very well and are worth reading. I'll let you decide which are which, though.

My Star Wars fan fiction

Frozen (PG) -- In this vignette, set shortly before "Empire Strikes Back," Leia compares and contrasts her upbringing with Han's.

Luke's Girl (PG) -- Not long after the events of "A New Hope," Han begins to make it his business to find out more about the woman his friend Luke loves and, in the process, forges an unexpected connection.

My Star Trek: The Original Series fan fiction

Old Acquaintance (G) -- Spock makes a visit to the aged Dr. McCoy to discuss both the future and the past.

My X-Files fan fiction

Guardian (PG) -- Years after Mulder and Scully left the FBI, bureau agents show up in Scully's office to discuss her missing partner. Scully reveals how much the bureau really doesn't know -- or does she?

Renewal (PG-13) -- In the sequel to "Guardian," Mulder's homecoming proves bittersweet in a number of ways.

Gilead Two-time Spooky Award winner for Best Crossover. (PG-13) -- From the department of twisted crossovers comes this story that sets Mulder and Scully in the world of Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale."

The Beast Within (PG) -- Also from the department of twisted crossovers comes this story -- but I'll leave the crossover for you to figure out as you go. Mulder and Scully's journey to a troubled Louisiana town leads Scully to an encounter with a far more troubled man.

Twilight (PG) -- Scully and Mulder have parted ways, but finally, some things cannot be faced alone.


I went to see "The Phantom Menace" with the same anticipation so many of us felt; I walked out with much the same sense of disappointment. The one flicker of imagination the movie inspired came during Qui-Gon's final scene; when he ran his finger down Obi-Wan's cheek, I thought, "Hmm. Bet the slashers have a field day with this."

I had already made plans to see the movie again, and the next time, I paid a little more attention to Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Then I went back again just to see them. Though I resisted it for a couple of weeks, the change in my brain became undeniable -- I was becoming one of "the slashers." And yes, actually, I WAS going to have a field day with this.

Those of you who already read and enjoyed the "Surfacing" series will notice that it remains unfinished. Will I ever return to it? I don't know. I'd like to. But please rest assured that each story is complete, in and of itself; I think the series stands up even without its final chapters, and I hope you'll feel the same way.

If you are violently offended by slash (a term for fic that shows a sexual relationship between two people of the same gender), under the age of 17 or given to dangerous heart palpitations at the thought of Ewan McGregor unclothed, you should read no further...


Consolations (PG-13) -- Years after the time of TPM, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan try to understand what went wrong.

The Surfacing Series

insect reflection

This site has received an Easter Egg Award from The Awards [1].

Insect reflection.jpg
Welcome to insect reflection.

This site's title comes from Tara's ill-ventured joke in Season Five's "Family." It didn't quite go over then. But to me, the phrase "Insect Reflection" sums up everything in the show that's inventive, mysterious, powerful and funny -- ie, everything the show does best. In these stories, I've tried to recapture that mixture of action, humor and drama. (Warning: some of the fic here is intended for mature readers. Please note and use the ratings given for each story.)

Destination Unknown (PG-13) -- Six conversations. Five unanswered questions. Four people. Three relationships. Two continents. One big honkin' crystal from who knows where. No plot. You're warned.

I-55 (PG) -- Betrayals come in many forms.
Winner of a Mad Excellence Award from Organized Insanity and an Excellent Fanfic Award from SOBAZ.

Phoenix Burning (R) -- This is a follow-up to "The Gift" quite unlike most you will have seen. Buffy awakens from death to find a world vastly changed.
Winner of : a Summer 2002 Highest Recommendation award from the BtVS Fan Fiction Club, a Best Created Hero award for Sumiko from Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered, a Recommended Reading award at Angel Obsessed, the Summer 2001 Halo Award for Best Drama, the Excellent BtVS Fanfiction Award by Darkness Beckons, the Summer 2001 Undead Awards for Outstanding Novel, Oustanding Action, Outstanding Future and Outstanding Buffy Characterization, and an Awesome Fanfic Award from Buffyguide.com. (Coming soon -- "Phoenix Burning: The Site," complete with illustrations, music files, additional scenes and further stories.)

Being Lois Lane (PG) -- In the aftermath of "Becoming, Part 2," Joyce tries to deal with what she knows -- and doesn't know -- about her daughter.
Winner of the Excellent Character Insights Award by Darkness Beckons

Named (NC-17) -- "She's using me."
Winner of the Summer 2001 Undead Award for Best Buffy/Other Romance.

In Harm's Way (PG-13) -- Buffy searches for her future. The Scooby Gang searches for Buffy. Spike goes to the mall.

Acid Test (PG-13) -- Xander takes a long, strange trip.

Winner of a Best Xander Fiction award by Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered.

chivalry is dead

Chivalry is dead.jpg
Ah, Angel. They say you're too broody, too guilt-ridden, too obsessive. But I love you just the way you are. Don't ever change.

The themes of guilt, redemption and transformation in the series "Angel" are fascinating for me, and the show's freer structure allows fic writers a lot of room to get in and explore these concepts for ourselves without stepping outside of canon. Angel can re-examine the problems and paradoxes of his existence for eternity -- he's going to live forever, and he's not going to feel all better anytime soon. Poor Angel. Lucky us. Fanfiction

(NC17) "Good question," Lilah replies. "The only answers I have for you are that it's big, it's got horns, and it's fond of gouging out your intestines while you're still alive. And guess what's best of all, Lindsey? It's coming after you."

A Stitch in Time The story of 104 years and five months.

The Last Virtue (PG 13) "Gunn has always considered Kwanzaa severely suspect, a fake holiday that has less to do with being black than it does with selling crap like the kente-cloth table runners. In darker moments, he thinks it's probably the result of an evil collaboration between Al Sharpton and Hallmark."

The Uninvited Guest (R) "'She will tell us all she knows, all she has done. And we will make our judgments accordingly. So you see -- Faith has nothing to fear but the truth.' Like that ain't enough to be afraid of."

On the Education of a Young Man (PG-13) Containing an assessment of the intellectual and moral advancement of Master Connor Angel, late of Quartoth, in various subjects appropriate for the refinement of a gentleman; in seven parts.

Hoop Screams (PG) When the Staples Center becomes infested by demons, there's only one detective agency in L.A. the Lakers can call on.

Sea Change (NC-17) -- "... everything Angel personifies is everything Lindsey's trying to put behind him by boarding a ship bound for the other side of the world. And Angel has spoiled the plan by climbing aboard himself."

Them Mean Ol', Low-Down, Lando Calrissian Blues Crossover Parody! "Okay, on the off chance that I've misheard you, that perhaps there is a merciful God and my cold medication is just creating auditory hallucinations, let me repeat -- You're saying that Crackpots Day is only a cover for the clandestine supernatural and paranormal activities of the government?"

As Time Goes By In its own unexpected ways, the Hyperion Hotel remains the last help for the hopeless in the wasteland once known as L.A.
Winner of the Winter 2002 Halo Award for Best Crossover and a Best Character Interaction award from A Whole New World.

The Quality of Mercy (R) -- Just as Angel's pulling himself back together, Riley shows up, falling apart.
Winner of a Best Angel Fiction award from Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered, and Fiction of the Week from the Riley fanfic group.

Splinter (R) -- "Listen: there's a hell / Of a good universe next door; let's go." -- e. e. cummings, "1 x 1." Coauthored with Rheanna.

Captive of the Soul (PG-13) -- Angel's attempt to keep his friends safe from harm might lead them into the greatest danger of all.
Winner of the Summer 2001 Undead Awards Black Onyx Award for Oustanding Darkfic (sponsored by The Darker Side of Sunnydale), and is Recommended Reading by Angel Obsessed.

The Other Half Lives (PG) -- After Wesley is injured, Cordelia re-examines her feelings for him. But Wesley's making a few changes, too.
1st place winner of the Unconventional Fiction award from the Summer '02 Believe Awards, and the Schmuck Bait Twisty Plot Award

Lifespan (G) -- What if Angel's shanshu doesn't occur for many, many years to come?

Halo Award winner for Best Future Fic, and is Recommended Reading by Angel Obsessed.

Yahtzee's New Fic

Yahtzee s New Fic.jpg
Now that I code my own pages and do my own Photoshopping, the look of things is a bit more, well, sparse. But you should still be able to find plenty of fun stuff to read here. Eventually, one or more of these fandoms might have a page of their own. And a little jump-down menu might be nice too, mightn't it? Must learn more coding, and soon.
