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: 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. )

Title: This Rabbit Hole Never Ends (1-2)
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Steve, others
Rating: G
Disclaimer/warnings: Not my characters, just borrowing.

Cecil agrees to move to the otherworld desert to live with Carlos, and discovers that even when they're in a new and unfamiliar place, their relationship hasn't changed.

An anniversary, and a snapshot of what came after.

( Cecil shook himself. What was he doing, dwelling on past stresses? Tonight was supposed to be for celebrating. )

Title: Impossible Colors
Fandom: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Characters/Pairings: Homura/Madoka, ensemble
Rating: G
Disclaimer: MadoMagi characters and plot aren't mine.

Homura is red/green colorblind. Snapshots of how she sees the world.

(Simulated protanopia image generated with Coblis.)

( When Homura wakes in the hospital and opens her hand to find a Soul Gem, the jewel is a dark blue so dull it's almost grey. )

Title: When The Sun Shines, We'll Shine Together
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Characters/Pairings: Cecil/Carlos, Kevin
Rating: T
Disclaimer/warnings: WtNV plot and characters aren't mine. References to character death.

The terrible light never retreated from the otherworld desert. The masked army moved on or were dissolved long ago. With Carlos stranded here, the only thing to keep him alive is his extremely scientific light-blocking invention.

And the only thing to keep Kevin alive is Carlos.

( For himself: strength, stamina, the ability not to lose all hope, and the ability to finally beat this one damn level of Angry Birds he's been stuck on for a solid month now. )
ptahrrific: Madoka preparing to take on Walpurgis (madoka magica)
Title: Ein Liebender liegt dir zu Füßen, part 1: You don't have a lot of friends, you know.
Characters/Pairings: Madoka/Moemura, Izabel/Michaela, Izabel/Madoka
Rating: NC-17
Contents: Overall: omegaverse, with all the consent issues and weird body stuff that implies; slavery; non-con; medical imagery; character death; references to past child abuse.
Disclaimer: Madoka Magica belongs to Urobochi, SHAFT, Aniplex, and other people who are not me.

A/B/O slavefic AU. While a shy glasses-wearing Homura is recovering from heart surgery, her parents rent an omega to "keep her company." Homura refuses to take advantage, either of Madoka's slave status or of the heady, irresistible hormones an alpha can use to seduce an omega. But even though there's an attraction and a fondness building between the two girls, Homura isn't leveled-up enough to protect Madoka from being exploited by others, either. (...Yet.)

Everyone is human. Homura's parents here are played by Izabel (the artist witch) and Michaela. Madoka's agency is run by Roberta (the birdcage witch). Most characters are aged-up; the main five girls are all at least eighteen.

( Homura laid back on the bed, pulling off her glasses and rubbing at the bridge of her nose to stave off a headache and trying not to feel bad about making Madoka fetch her drinks. )

Title: A Matter of Time before All Your Alliances
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale, The Hunger Games
Characters/Pairings: Cecil & Carlos, Khoshekh, Sheriff's secret police
Rating: T
Warnings: post-traumatic stress, violence, police brutality, badly hurt Khoshekh, references to: non-con, character death, attempted suicide. (So, a bunch of THG standards.)
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and settings are not mine.

Like everyone else, I needed to write a cathartic Khoshekh fic post-e043, and this is what came out. A follow-up to the AU where Carlos is a Hunger Games victor.

Revolution is hard; building a new society out of the wreckage is harder. Cecil's position in the post-war Panem is shaky at best, and there are times when Carlos can't protect him...or Khoshekh. Very loose remix of e043 Visitor, crossed with e037 The Auction.

( It doesn't occur to him to go knock on one of his fellow Victors' doors for backup. They've been his allies for years, but they've also spent most of that time scattered across the Districts and unable to help in a situation like this, so Carlos the Scientist is self-reliant. )

Title: He Says He Volunteers As Tribute, 3/3: The Mentor
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale, The Hunger Games
Characters/Pairings: one-sided (?) Cecil/Carlos, Josie, Earl, Steve, Larry Leroy, Tamika, Paolo, Franklin Wilson, Dana, Erika, Megan Wallaby, others
Rating: T (references to non-con, even more character death)
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and settings are not mine.

AU. Carlos has been his district's only mentor for the Hunger Games for a decade now (and part of Panem's favorite celebrity romance for almost as long). This year, though? He's gotten a tribute who might be, not just a survivor, but someone who can help change the Games forever.

( 'Exciting news, listeners! Perfect Carlos, the mentor for our brilliant, bold Tamika, is here in the studio with us. Let's see if we can get an interview!' )

Rating: T (violence, PTSD, prescription drug [ab]use, suicidal ideation, more character death)
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and settings are not mine.

AU. Carlos has survived the Hunger Games, earning himself a cute nickname and a hefty helping of trauma. One year later, he has to return to the Capitol in the company of next year's tributes...and re-encounter the commentator who still has a frankly scary obsession with him.

( He reads the canned speeches Leann gives him, and walks away with vague memories of saying that such-and-such a district must be the most fascinating place in the country. )

Characters/Pairings: one-sided Cecil/Carlos, Simone Rigadeau, Leann Hart, Glow Cloud, Vithya, others
Rating: T (violence, character death)
Disclaimer: All recognizable characters and settings are not mine.

AU. How Carlos scienced his way into winning the Hunger Games, and what he did with his life afterward.

Complete, in three parts. Will be posted as it's edited (in between chapters of the ongoing HDM AU). Part one: Carlos's Games...as told through the voice of Cecil, the long-time Games commentator (and beloved Capitol fashion icon) who fell in love with him the instant he volunteered.

( I'm sure we'll be hearing plenty about this young man over the next week. Possibly even from people other than me. )

Characters/Pairings: Jon/"Stephen", "Stephen"/OCs, Jimmy Fallon, Olivia/Kristen, Wyatt, Tucker Carlson, Brian Williams, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Anthony Weiner, other correspondents and cameos, a few OCs.
Rating: through R
Contents: Drinking/drugs, awful and/or neglectful adults, background *isms, teen/teen sexuality, sexual abuse of a minor.
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.

Fake news AU. Our heroes (and some villains) (and some imports from The Newsroom) are all performers in various blocs of the Disney tween music/TV/movie empire, which naturally is amazingly screwed-up behind the scenes.

Jon and "Stephen" are in a manufactured boy band with Jimmy and Tucker. They're about to get some cross-promotion with Olivia, the local equivalent of Miley Cyrus. These kids are only thrown together based on whatever will get the best publicity, but there are still genuine Best Friendships Forever to be forged...which is good, because with high-pressure careers in the fishbowl of celebrity, sometimes friends are the only thing that keep you going.

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.

Jon the Sentinel is back in the U.S., and trying to settle into his newly awakened senses, not to mention his new civic duties. Stephen meanwhile is dealing with his own sense of overload, as the walls he's developed to keep out other people's emotions start buckling under the strain.

Plus, the whole thing was overwhelming Stephen's own brain with warm and fuzzy feelings, and he had to focus on quieting them down. )

Title: I Am Qumarica (And So Can You!)
Rating: Through R
Contents: Slavery, humiliation, attempted murder, consent issues of all kinds

Blanket 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.

Loosely connected tales from the AU where Jon owns a harem, with a bunch of the correspondents as his concubines. Featuring idficcy sex slavery for some, snark and wary self-sufficiency for others, a dark!Jon struggling to redeem himself, and a background of vaguely cutthroat political infighting.

Takes place in a fictional empire called Qumarica, a play on the fictional state of Qumar in The West Wing (h/t [personal profile] politicette for the idea). Thus the title.

Title: The Sunlit Millennium
Series: Sailor Moon
Rating: Teen. This is a Choose Not To Warn experience.
Characters: Mostly original, with a few canon faces dropping in.
Disclaimer: Unless you count in dreams, Sailor Moon was never mine.

Bits and bobs from a loose remix of the Xyll Saga, redone from the ground up to use entirely Egyptian mythology and take place during the Sailor Wars.

The fic will be split up into a series of connected stories, and I make no promises to cover everything, because the pressure is lower that way ^_^; Text will all be on the AO3, with links and background information indexed here.

Title: The Xyll Saga
Series: Sailor Moon
Rating: General audiences, but this is a Choose Not To Warn experience.
Characters: Mostly original, with a few canon faces dropping in.
Disclaimer: Unless you count in dreams, Sailor Moon was never mine.

Before the fall of the Silver Millennium, the princess of a neighboring star system seeks to awaken her fellow Sailor Senshi to repel the Dark Kingdom. Granted, if one of the team died in the initial attack, her quest may have failed before it began...but with refugees to protect, brainwashed comrades to rescue, and an invading enemy force to outrun, our heroes don't have time to think too much about that.

The more times she fails to save Madoka, the more desperate Homura gets...until kidnapping her and locking her in a basement until Walpurgisnacht is over stops sounding like such a crazy idea.
