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...." )

Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoils ALL THE THINGS, especially MadoMagi, HDM, and BSG.
Disclaimer: Not a single one of these series is mine. More's the pity.

What it says on the tin. Heart crystals that Kaolinite and the Witches 5 would have gone after, if only they'd existed in the same series.

Most of these involve AU versions of the crossover characters' canon settings. Just pretend those years and areas were the ones in which the Death Busters set up shop...and then ignore all the continuity issues that brings up ^_^;

For my round 2 [community profile] hc_bingo card, prompts "experiments by evil scientists" and "headaches/migraines".

'I'm Jon Stewart, and, folks, we have a fantastic program for you tonight. Our guest is Souichi Tomoe...' )

Title: All Her Original Brightness
Fandom: The Colbert Report/His Dark Materials
Rating: R (vague sex, light D/s, references to PTSD, masochism)
Pairings/Characters: Jon/"Stephen", dæmons
Disclaimer: 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.

Daemon AU. Mirror on the AO3.

Fill for a [livejournal.com profile] newskink_meme prompt involving the touching of dæmons. Readers who aren't familiar with His Dark Materials, check out this basic How Dæmons Work primer. As before, Stephen's Honeypie is a kinkajou (awwww), and Jon's Avivah is a lynx (lol). Clips referenced will be linked as they come up.

The title is from a line in Paradise Lost: "His form had yet not lost / All her original brightness." Which makes an interesting counterpart to that first poem Stephen memorized: "So Eden sank to grief / So dawn goes down to day / Nothing gold can stay."

There's an AU follow-up scene to this in Ten Roads Converged.

'So, ah, I'm usually pretty good with species, but I've never seen a dæmon like yours before. What's hers? It's cute.' )

Title: State of Grace: the Despair That Slumber'd remix (4/4)
Fandom: The Colbert Report/His Dark Materials
Rating: R
Disclaimer/Warnings: Same as on State of Grace.

Final scenes from the Expectingverse-with-daemons. Plus some illustrated profiles of the daemons themselves, because I'm addicted to backstory.

One | Two | Three | Four&.

'Why didn't you tell me they were here?' he demanded, over the baby's anguished sobbing, threaded with the kitten-formed daemon's heart-rending mews. )

Title: State of Grace: the Despair That Slumber'd remix (3/4)
Fandom: The Colbert Report/His Dark Materials
Rating: R
Disclaimer/Warnings: Same as on State of Grace.

Rushing toward the SoG climax from the Expectingverse-with-daemons. Stephen and company are finally out enough that they can begin to openly explore their system's rules for daemons. That still doesn't make it easy for their loved ones to accept, much less understand.

Illustrations: Jon and Avivah, Charlene and Renoir, and baby George and his daemon.

One | Two | Three | Four&.

'She has bits of fur missing. Not so most people would notice, but I know where to look. Honeypie's been biting, hasn't she? All that time, you were putting up with....' )

Title: State of Grace: the Despair That Slumber'd remix (2/4)
Fandom: The Colbert Report/His Dark Materials
Rating: R
Disclaimer/Warnings: Same as on State of Grace.

More scenes from the Expectingverse-with-daemons. This part skips ahead a bit, to the stage when Charlene and Jon each know important pieces of Stephen (and company)'s mental state, but the biggest revelations are yet to come.

One | Two | Three | Four&.

The blocky scene had the same basic layout as the main stage, a bespectacled stick figure labeled 'Stephen' sitting behind the C-shaped desk at its heart, while an unlabeled Honeypie watched him from over by the wall. )

Fandom: The Colbert Report/His Dark Materials
Rating: R
Disclaimer/Warnings: If you've read State of Grace, you know the drill.

Inspired by this epic subthread with [personal profile] w_thit on what TCR, and specifically the Expectingverse, would be like if everyone had daemons.

What follows is a sampling of scenes rewritten to fit that universe: one from Expecting, a bunch from the beginning of State of Grace. Stephen's daemon appears to be a kinkajou named Honeypie. But the closer he gets to Jon, the more of the truth begins to slip out.

The title phrase, like "his dark materials", is from Paradise Lost (book 4, line 23):
Now conscience wakes despair
That slumber'd,—wakes the bitter memory
Of what he was, what is, and what must be
Worse; of worse deeds worse sufferings must ensue.


One | Two | Three | Four&.

Jon had always thought he had a fairly robust libido, but it was his partner who half dragged, half carried him up the stairs, and all but threw him onto the bed before tumbling down after him. And though Avi was rolling about on the floor like an overgrown kitten, Honeypie was suddenly friskier still, darting and dodging and climbing all over her. )
