Labyrinth/Hello From The Magic Tavern | Arnie/Sarah, Jareth, Chunt, Usidore | G | Dangers Untold...

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.' )

Oz | Toto, Dorothy/Ozma, Eureka, Billina, Aunt Em | G | Toto, Too

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!' )

Fake News | Jon/"Stephen", Lorraine | G | Did You Hear The One About The Comedian And The Werewolf?

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. )

His Dark Materials | Lyra/Will, Mary, cameos | G | You Cannot Shut the Windows of the Sky

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...." )

Fake News | Jon/"Stephen", Trevor Potter, others | PG-13 | A River So Long (1/3)

Title: A River So Long: being a multi-season Love Story in three Acts, color-coded for Your Convenience (brought to you by Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow) (Act 1)
Characters/Pairings: Jon/"Stephen", Trevor Potter
Rating: PG-13
Contents: Sex, drugs, rock'n'roll
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.

8) Prompt: Stephen's tirade on election night. "Then you realise you made a terrible mistake but it will be too late, you had the chance but you rejected him and now [Mitt Romney] will never want your [vote] again." We all know he meant "Jon" instead of "Mitt" and "love" instead of "vote."

The long-deferred romantic tension between Jon and Stephen ignites in the beginning of 2012. Trouble is, Jon's in something of an altered state of mind, thanks to that sudden infusion of unlimited and untraced cash....

Stephen, anxious to know what Jon really thinks of him, stumbles on a way to find out for sure...which doesn't go at all the way he planned. Turns out Jon has more secrets than he bargained for (and in the meantime, Stephen's conscience just might be catching up with him).

Mirror on the AO3 -- complete with special effects that aren't supported on DW.

For a [livejournal.com profile] fakenews_fanfic SeSa prompt from [livejournal.com profile] gaudy_night: Jon/"Stephen", after a freak accident, he gains the ability to hear what the other is really thinking. Title is from the carol Blue Christmas.

If you were trying to seduce your gay friend for purely exploitative purposes, and maybe enjoying his company and feeling that his happiness made you feel warmer than hot chocolate along the way, that was still safely heterosexual on your part. )

While Stephen is off having exciting friendship adventures with his new best buddy, Jon copes with his totally-not-jealousy by dragging various correspondents on a series of ill-fated friendventures of their own.

For a [livejournal.com profile] fakenews_fanfic SeSa prompt by [livejournal.com profile] snobantiker: Jon/"Stephen", Jimmy Fallon. During the time of the BFFSM of Stephen and Jimmy, Jon gets jealous.

"Stewberry" is from Jon's hopeful suggestion for an ice-cream flavor, to go with Stephen's "Americone Dream" and Jimmy's "Late Night Snack."

Mirror on the AO3.

Jon pouted. Disgraceful, that was. Men their age had no business pouting, unless they were facing a truly heart-rending situation, like not being sent a free iPad quickly enough. )

Sailor Moon: Artemis Parthenos

Title: Artemis Parthenos
Fandom: Sailor Moon
Characters/Pairings: Venus/Artemis, Luna/Artemis, various royals
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Canon character deaths. Spoilers for the first arc and the Sailor V manga, plus light references to the rest of the series.
Disclaimer: The series, settings, and characters are not mine. All hail Naoko-hime.

Scenes from Artemis' past life, growing up and having girl trouble. In any other era, with any other girls, this wouldn't even have been a footnote to history; but these are princesses and royal advisors, in the twilight of the Silver Millennium.

For the Magical Girl Fic/Art Swap 2011; also here on the AO3. The princesses' names come from epithets used for their respective gods in Roman mythology, while their parents are named for the corresponding Greek gods. The poetry is from translations of Sappho; similar verses must have been written by her previous incarnation.

As long as I'm here, let me rec you this episode recap, featuring the Moon Kingdom's downfall in blank verse.

On the first day at the Foreign Planets Academy, the members of the youngest class milled around in tiny, species-segregated clusters. )

Written for [personal profile] paperscribe in [livejournal.com profile] fakenews_fanfic's 2010 Secret Santa. Prompt: "Stephen" has always wanted to have superhero/magical powers. However, when Jon accidentally discovers that he has powers, "Stephen" is very upset.

Now with illustrations! Secret Alter Ego (WARNING: spoilers) and Indecision 2002 (the news team).

Mirrored on the AO3.




This is set in the universe of Empowered. For reference, all the superheroes mentioned are on this page, but no familiarity with the series is necessary; I just needed a generic background mileu full of superheroes.

Takes place around the era of Indecision 2002. "Stephen" is a TDS correspondent and occasional substitute host, with active compatriots including Rob Corddry, Ed Helms, Rachael Harris, Mo Rocca, and Stacey Grenrock-Woods, and of course your host, who also plays all the title roles. It makes sense in context. (Sort of.)

'Most likely? Someone with hex powers was doing a flyover, and they accidentally dropped a curse along the way. Remember in April when one of them turned half the city purple.' )

Gift Exchanges '010!

This year [livejournal.com profile] go_exchange delivered right on schedule: Heaven Enough, in which Agnes has a good afterlife and there are some beautiful cameos.

Over at [livejournal.com profile] fakenews_fanfic's Secret Santa swap, I got News Casters, which is Sam/Olivia with an ensemble cast and bonus tiny!Jon. And it is magical. In both senses of the word.

And while you're reading, check out Metaphorical Foreplay Is Still Foreplay, a mini-coda to Riding The Love Train To Sanitytown. No fic exchange behind this one, just random inspiration.

I would invite people to guess my contribution(s) to either exchange, but I have a feeling I've been pretty transparent this year ^_^;

The Wizard of Oz - The Gender Ninja of Oz

Title: The Gender Ninja of Oz
Rating: PG-13 (light sexual content)
Characters/pairings: Ozma/Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Toto, Jack Pumpkinhead
Contents: Major spoilers through The Emerald City of Oz (book 6); minor ones through Tik-Tok of Oz (Book 9).
Disclaimer: I didn't create these characters...not that it matters. Public domain FTW!
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest, prompt 3782: Wizard of Oz series, Ozma, Ozma's gender identity is complicated - zie wasn't fully satisfied as a boy when zie was Tip, but isn't fully satisfied as a girl when zie is Ozma. On top of that zie is in love with Dorothy. Is there any resolution to this?
Notes: Ozma/Tip's pronouns will be going all over the place; sometimes they match hir physical body at the time, sometimes not. Most of this sticks to Baum's canon, though I have pulled one detail from Ruth Plumly Thompson: rather than staying at the same age forever, characters can choose on their birthdays whether to grow that year. Title nabbed from Genderfork. Full-size versions of the illustrations will be showing up with my other Oz fanart. And, as always, other trans!fics are here.

"I might try it for awhile,—just to see how it seems, you know. But if I don't like being a girl you must promise to change me into a boy again."

"Really," said the Sorceress, "that is beyond my magic. I never deal in transformations, for they are not honest, and no respectable sorceress likes to make things appear to be what they are not."

The Marvelous Land of Oz

'You never talk about your life before they let you be Princess again,' says Dorothy crossly. 'I s'pose being a farm girl isn't very exciting next to being ruler of all of Oz...but I'd like to hear about it some time, all the same.' )

What happens when Stephen's wife leaves — again — but doesn't conveniently take the kids with her?

Mirror on the AO3.


After vigorously mixing the dry ingredients, Matthew had gotten distracted by the need to have a lightsaber duel; spotting an opportunity for father-son bonding, Jon had urged Stephen to be his opponent. JP, meanwhile, ended up fully absorbed in the task of making handprints in the flour Matthew had spilled all over the table. )
