Title: Dangers Untold And Podcasts Unnumbered
Fandom: Labyrinth, Hello From The Magic Tavern
Characters/Pairings: Arnie Niekamp/Sarah Williams, Jareth, Usidore, Chunt
Rating: G

When Arnie disappears off the face of the Earth, and there are traces of magic lingering around the Burger King, Sarah has a feeling she knows who's behind it.

But Jareth swears he wasn't involved.

A story about goblins, magic, interdimensional boon companions, and reordering space and time for the one you love.


( 'Your destiny is to return to Earth at some time in the future. Perhaps years in the future. After fighting your way through the standard adventuring package — dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, that sort of thing.' )

Title: Toto, Too
Fandom: Oz
Characters/Pairings: Toto & Dorothy, pre-Dorothy/Ozma, ensemble
Rating: G

Everyone thinks Toto can't talk...and that's just the way he likes it.

His second fairy adventure is much safer than the first, and his little mistress more adept at all kinds of queer travel; but Toto intends to keep to his old habits as long as possible, just in case.


( 'Where did you go, huh, boy? I know where Dorothy imagines she went, but you must've seen the real thing. Oh, I wish you could talk!' )

Title: Did You Hear The One About The Comedian And The Werewolf?
Fandom: Fake News
Characters/Pairings: "Stephen"/Jon, Lorraine
Rating: G

Jon gets himself locked in Stephen's apartment on a full-moon night.

A story about forcefields, leftovers, primitive instincts, burnt offerings, the non-reality-based scientific community, bed-sharing, and trying not to use the words "flying monkey."


( Every horror movie Jon had ever seen flashed helpfully through his mind. This was the point in the script where the most-doomed character would say something like ha ha, Stephen, quit crawling around making doggy noises to scare me!, and five seconds later get brutally mauled while the rest of the cast screamed and fled for the next part of the set. )

Title: You Cannot Shut The Windows Of The Sky
Fandom: His Dark Materials
Characters/Pairings: Lyra/Will, Mary, cameos
Rating: G
Content notes: Characters eventually return to the World of the Dead.

Snapshots, mostly outsider-POV, as Will and Lyra grow up. Gaining skill and prestige in their respective fields, helping science (and/or experimental theology) march forward...oh, and learning how to communicate from one world to another.

Works fine as a standalone fic, but if you've been keeping up with Republic of Heaven Community Radio, it'll fill in some gaps in the backstory.

( "This is the Lady Asriel, from Oxford," adds Pierre. "She swears she knows for a fact that ghosts, Rusakov particles, and the many-worlds theory are all related...." )

Characters/pairings: Jon/"Stephen"
Disclaimer: #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. Characters belong to the Report. Names of real people are used in a fictitious context, and all dialogue, actions, and content are products of the author's imagination only.

This is a peaks-and-valleys AU, basically a D/s AU on a sine wave. Humans cycle from being dominant to being submissive and back, and the ideal partner is one whose peaks line up neatly with your valleys.

Jon has long, leisurely swings, and by adulthood is pretty good at managing his moods. "Stephen", naturally, will rocket from valley to peak and back in the space of a week. Snapshots of their friendship, and then romance, in different combinations over the years.

( 'You can't gag me and expect me to answer questions at the same time, you know.' / 'I don't see why not! It's a free country.' )

After his trip to the Republican convention, "Stephen" comes home to the cabin...and he brought a friend.

( At his side stood...another Stephen. Or at least, another of Stephen's weird doppelgängers — and between the zebra-patterned suit, giant neck bow, and bouffant pile of blue hair towering six inches over his forehead, this one was weirder than most. )

It's mid-2004 and the elections are approaching, but "Stephen" is occupied with an unrelated assignment: to be the Daily Show's first Senior Space Correspondent, on a manned mission across the solar system.

A more-scientifically-advanced-than-reality AU. Featuring a big change of perspective for Stephen, a lot of confused pining from Jon, and a slew of "Drops of Jupiter" references.

( Stephen looked startled. It was hard to read, given the way his head was pointed at a thirty-degree angle from straight down, but that was Jon's best guess. )

Title: Three times the two of us first met

Disclaimer: Everything belongs to Hirano Kouta; I'm just borrowing.

Vintage fic. Wrote it in 2009 for a now-defunct prompt community (prompt: "first meetings")...then forgot I had finished it, whoops. Dusting it off now. Any HeinkelxYumie/ko shippers still in the house — this one's for you.

The first time Yumiko met Heinkel; the first time Yumie met Heinkel; and, as a result, the first time Yumiko met Yumie.

( 'Father Maxwell can stuff it,' replied Heinkel pleasantly. )

Taking a deep dive through my WIP folder to retrieve these fake news fics. Some of them are 5+ years old! A few, I had completely forgotten writing. All of them have just enough substance to post, as Works No Longer In Progress.

Title: Night Vale: The Musical (Act II)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, ensemble
Rating: T
Disclaimer/warnings: Night Vale and everything related are the property of Commonplace Books. None of the music is mine, either. (Full songbook.)

When the curtain last fell on our heroes, they had just finished an ensemble song about how they weren't going to pay Strexcorp's rent...and Strex came down hard, fast, and armed with internationally-banned chemicals. Now the rebellion has to regroup, injuries have to be treated, distant armies have to be gathered, and, amidst all this, our flagship couple has to try openly communicating with each other.

It's the second half of the musical AU. Well, sort of. Hopefully it's enough of a close to give readers closure.

Title: And You're Gonna Walk Five Hundred Miles
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Carlos(/Cecil), Kevin
Rating: PG (drugging)
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Little thing I wrote post-"worms...". Thoroughly jossed, but I figured I'd dust it off and post it, as a "what if Kevin had been secretly manipulative, so Carlos wasn't in control of his actions" AU.

Probably the same AU as It's Gonna Be Good and I Can't Control My Fingers, I Can't Control My Brain.

( "Cecil's coming to visit...once he gets into the dog park, and walks however long it takes to get here, in whatever direction 'here' is." )

Far-future Kevin loses the signal.

(A post-e073 feel-good fixit fic. No, really.)

Title: A Story About Consequences
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, others
Rating: T
Disclaimer: This is a not-for-profit fanwork using characters belonging to Fink and Cranor.

The idea of complete freedom, the idea that there will be no consequences for any of this, is a relief at first, then a delight. But when your theory is thrown into doubt, you start testing it, pushing for limits, trying to find out if there's a breaking point. And if there isn't — if none of this ultimately matters — then does it matter what kind of person you turn into while finding that out?

(Carlos's character arc, up to Well of Night, recast through the lens of A Story About You.)

( There is no accountability. There are no limits. You look into whatever you feel like, drop it without finishing if you get bored. Sometimes you talk like a badly-written scientist character on a cheesy TV show, just for the hell of it. It's so much fun. )

Disclaimer/warnings: See the His Dark Materials AU masterpost.

An epilogue. Friends and loved ones spend time together. Cecil, Carlos, and others work on figuring out how to be okay again.

More art: teenage Cecil with Leonard learning alethiometry; Kevin with Va'eira; a wedding night pinup. And don't miss this professional tarantula in scrubs.

This fic also has a companion mix. (The chapter titles are all song lyrics; those songs are all included.)

( And yeah, he looks pretty good...for a normal human...considering his age...and life experience...and so on. The lines on his face mostly stand out when he's smiling. )

With Cecil at his most hopeless, all Carlos can do is lean on his friends, and listen from a distance, and wait.

A short chapter. One more to come after this. Includes canon-typical mental health issues.

New art: Cecil & his brother over the years.

( You may have noticed that I have taken an unusual number of sick days in recent months. You may have heard me comment, in ways both direct and indirect, that I am weary. )

Tried to start writing this when TCR ended, but it didn't come together until just now.

Post-Report, "Stephen" is immortal. Snapshots of his relationship with Jon as The Daily Show ends too, and the years go by.

( "I have been busy! Running errands for Santa. Trying to launch a startup around the revolutionary concept of beard-based advertising, or 'beardvertising'. Handing out condoms at the drunken week-long bacchanal in Secret San Francisco after the whole thing with the gays and the marrying." )
