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: 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...." )

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. )

In an alternate dimension of an alternate multiverse, Hiram takes a friend to see a show.

Cecil takes Carlos to a fun local Saturday-afternoon swap meet.

Title: Calyx
Rating: PG-13
Characters/pairings: "Stephen" and family; eventual "Stephen"/OCs; Jon
Disclaimer: #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. Work of parody; work of fiction; the characters aren't mine.

Young "Stephen" doesn't have the greatest parents, but a supportive neighbor changes the course of his life. Comfort fluff with a twist.

(This is a WIP that I stopped properly writing in late 2011, with the unfinished scenes loosely sketched-in. It's never going to be finished, at least not as originally intended, but it should hold together well-enough to be worth posting. Warning for character death, though it's only from old age.)

( He didn't even go to church, although Mama said he was a nice man: a little eccentric, but still a Poor Dear Thing for reasons that nobody talked about. )

Carlos brings Cecil home to meet his family. It doesn't go so well. They end up hanging out with the Red Plains Rider for a while to recover.

No spoilers for the official WtNV/TAH crossover show, just a personal headcanon:

Carlos was raised by Science Aliens.

( 'Skepticism. He appears to be having difficulty comprehending our signifiers. I would expect a higher level of scientific deduction from anyone trying to date our brilliant Carlos.' )

Post-canon. Kyoko and Sayaka are having a hard time working together in battle. But when they get a shared opportunity to help Homura, they discover that under the right circumstances, they can make a good team after all.

Four vignettes about four different villains, from the universe where "Stephen" is a forcefield-generating superhero and Jon is his Lois Lane. (A very belated response to some OT prompts.)

Fills some squares from my [community profile] hc_bingo round 4 card: "hostages" for #1, "making deals with demons" for #2, "brainwashing" for #3, "poltergeist" for #4.

'Where's your sense of adventure?' hisses the Eagle. His sidekick, the actual eagle known as Junior, fluffs its feathers in indignant agreement from its perch on the costumed crimefighter's shoulder. )

A compilation of single-sentence fics, written for prompt threads over several months until I cut them off after #100. Including lots of characters, various AUs, and two mini-continuities (one about "Stephen" recovering from an accident, one about his wife kicking him out).

Mirror on the AO3.


John declares his side to be Team Glasses, Wyatt counters by establishing Team Beard (and declaring Jon an honorary member), and they never actually get around to the game, what with spending most of the afternoon arguing which side gets to claim Al. )

Title: You, The Heroes
Rating: G
Cast: Jessica, real!Stephen, Olivia, Kristen, Wyatt, "Stephen"/Jon
Prompt: "Power" (with sub-prompts for specific superpower/character combinations) + "First meetings" (for the last one)

Sequel to the "Stephen" one: It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's...A Chair! Now with a mirror on the AO3.

It was harder to line up a couple to adopt her this time. People who believe in phoenixes at all, much less consider them lucky, are getting rarer and rarer. )

Title: PDA
Rating: G
Cast: Jon/"Stephen", Wyatt
Prompt: Public displays of affection

When Stephen was in complete denial, their interactions were bewildering, but at least all the stress was on him. )

Title: Shotgun
Rating: G
Cast: "Stephen"
Prompt: Characters' résumés

(This totally fits the prompt, because you just know Stephen would be very proud to list it as work experience, particularly for any tuxedo-requiring jobs.)

"I was born to wear a tux. In fact, as a child my parents used to rent me out as a ring bearer for shotgun weddings." (I Am America, 219)

Stevie loves weddings. He gets to wear a tuxedo, which makes him basically a grown-up. )


Title: Labor Day
Rating: PG
Cast: Jon/"Stephen"
Prompt: Worth

An extended version of how Stephen spent his Labor Day. (Stephen's wearing this dress, to make [personal profile] politicette happy.)

The back of the creamy-white gown scoops low under Stephen's shoulder blades, then explodes at the waist into a frothing mass of lace and sheer billows. )

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.

I retconned part of Little Red State Riding Hood, so now the Wolf does actually eat the Candidate instead of having him put on a bus. Which leaves him with this whole empty mansion to hang out in. Stephen sticks around, too, because he is weak for a small fuzzy person in a suit. (With illustrations and more illustrations!)

And then there is some adventure in which Olivia tweets, Jon gets shot at from a helicopter, and Stephen comes to the rescue.

For my [community profile] hc_bingo round 3 card, prompt "forced to rely on enemy/rival." (A wolf relying on creatures who might under other circumstances have been wolf chow totally counts.) Mirror on the AO3.

And sure, Jon ate actual humans once in a while, but everyone had their flaws. Why, Stephen's own dearly-deceased Candidate had killed lots of people in his day (if by 'people' you meant 'corporations', which Stephen did). )

For [personal profile] politicette, Expectingverse "Stephen" meets Ratings-Grabbing For Two "Stephen"


George rubs his eyes and gapes in an exaggerated gesture he clearly picked up from his Jon. Not that he's as good at it as Marian, of course. )

For [personal profile] kribban: The Sword In His Mouth Jon meets Green & Grey Jon (with spoilers for both stories)

For [personal profile] ladyjaderains. Daemonverse J/"S" meets canon J/"S". (Same daemons as All Her Original Brightness.)


The fact that the portrait hole wasn't wide enough to let him and Avivah through together gave him the creeps right from the start. )

Stephen should have paid more attention to the warnings on Vaxicarus.

(A wingfic. Also, an understated acefic. For my [community profile] hc_bingo Round 3 card, prompt "medication." Mirror on the AO3.)

Stephen swallowed two, chased them with a swig of Bud Lite Lime (he had gallons of the stuff, and they kept sending more; he'd taken to brushing his teeth with it), and went to bed. )
