Neglected Commentfic Roundup Week continues with something recent: [personal profile] kribban picked "Fighting" from a prompt table, and I decided to make something fluffy out of it. (Literally.)

Takes place in the Senateverse.

As security concerns go, having the mundane details of your schedule for the next fortnight leaked to the press was not high on Senator Stewart's (D-NY) list. )

Before starting on "Stay" (on the Senateverse table of contents), I decided to keep a record of all the links I clicked in the name of research.

Since I love it when other authors give background/commentary for their fics, I figured I'd share the list. Includes a few notes, because my wildly nonlinear thought process needs some kind of explanation.

Summary: Senateverse. Morning Joe weighs in; Stephen makes a purchase; soldiers give nonanswers about DADT; Jason checks in from Tehran; Jon gives nonanswers about Stephen.

Note that this was written, and takes place, more than a week ago, before things fell apart in our!Iran. I would hold off on posting, but I don't know if there will ever be a "good time" to post it, so here it is. And please keep an eye on the news, if you aren't already.

(Yeah, I know, that may be a superfluous request to make of TDS fans. Still.)


Okay, so it looked kind of like a muffler. But the local vendor he had bought it from assured him it was a gun. At least, that's what Stephen assumed the man had said. He just hoped Sweetness wouldn't be jealous. )

Summary: Senateverse. While Jon follows along at home, Stephen embarks on a whirlwind tour of Iraq, complete with a haircut courtesy of Commanding General Rob Riggle.

Yes, I did put Senateverse!Rob in the Army instead of the Marines. Military readers, please don't kill me.

Summary: Senateverse. The blogosphere loves how Jon carried himself in that hearing against CNBC. Stephen is less approving. But when Jon reacts by accusing him of not caring about anyone but himself, he'll have to take drastic measures to prove otherwise.

Carries on the Emmy Rossum song naming theme. (The lyrics don't match very well this time, but the title will keep coming up.)

For [livejournal.com profile] punkishgrin, who wanted something involving Aaron Shock. Makes reference to this poll. (Senateverse, though it doesn't fit into the continuity at all. Oh well.)

Summary: In which Senator Colbert is all over the emotional map, and Senator Stewart is Zen with a side of Zen topped with a creamy Zen frosting.

Features shoutouts to everything from A Colbert Christmas to Stephen's Twitter ([livejournal.com profile] stephenathome) - again, [livejournal.com profile] rissaofthesaiya provides specifics. For the lead-up to this, see the Senateverse index.

(By the way, if anyone else wants to play around in this AU, have at it! No reason one author should have all the fun.)

Summary: In spite of the increasing friction (of the non-steamy kind) between them, Senator Stewart and Senator Colbert manage to visit the result of Colbert's lone bipartisan effort.

Was supposed to be two parts, but it went and grew on me. Continuation of the Senateverse.

Have purloined the STEPHEN WRITES IN ALL CAPS trope, because it is delightful. Also, this part refers to tons of clips, which [livejournal.com profile] rissaofthesaiya was kind enough to hunt down.

*Object permanence is not actually a concern correlated with the autism spectrum. When that comes up in the story, "narrative convenience" takes precedence over "what is, technically, true". Don't use this as a source for your autism research, is what I'm saying.

Title: The Great Divide (1/3)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language, sexual harassment, epic skate-off
Characters/pairings: Jon/"Stephen" (preslash), references to ensemble, cameo by Rain (RAAAAIN!!!)

Summary: Continuation of the Senateverse. Stephen Colbert (R-SC) has the worst record for bipartisanship in recent history. Jon Stewart (D-NY) did convince him to cross the aisle one time, but does that mean they'll be able to survive a three-week vacation together?

Title, again, is from an Emmy Rossum song [lyrics]. Rather than hire lots of OCs, Jon has borrowed his household staff from the Möders family.

They didn't think anybody would be obtuse enough to filibuster this one. They underestimated Stephen Colbert (R-SC).

For a Secret Santa prompt requesting Jon/"Stephen" in an AU with no families, in which they're not necessarily newsmen - thus spawning the Senateverse. Title is Emmy Rossum's [lyrics]. Some lines are from this ThreatDown and this "overnight" broadcast.
