Summary: Seamus wears a gown down the aisle and embraces his future. Love may not quite conquer all, but it doesn't do too badly for itself, either.

Those of you who have been waiting to see more of the dresses, check out Seamus in green, George in blue, the wedding portrait, and a bonus Seamus in slinky red. Previous chapters here.

(Would you believe this was originally supposed to be a one-shot?)

It had taken some serious cajoling to keep her from showing up in a low-cut dress, and when George's sister caught the bouquet Jerri tried to bite her. But the impossibly virtuoso score was worth it. )

Title: Perfect
Warnings: Some swearing; family drama

The soundtrack for Why Should I Care?, a second-gen tale of love, dancing, screwed-up parents, gay kids, and delicious cake.

Tattered At The Seams is the drawing that was going to be the cover art, until the plot (and the design of Seamus' wedding dress) changed so much that it no longer fit.



If in every wedding picture my daddy looks annoyed, it's all right )

Summary: Seamus comes perilously close to actually acting on his Secret Shameful Desire. Featuring one drunken stupor, two beautiful gowns, three instances of pounding on doors, and far too many final exams.

Every time a chapter like this comes up, I lose a few hours googling formal dresses. The green one looks something like this.

Remember that this story is Twenty Minutes Into The Future: all phones are cellular, all cars are electric, and there's public transportation everywhere. Here, Seamus refers to the built-within-his-lifetime New Jersey metro, serving everywhere from New York to Philadelphia.

Mad props to [personal profile] stellar_dust for being everything from spellcheck to sounding board.

A second-gen tale of love between the sons of two sets of middle-aged homos.

With a violently homophobic mother and a father who pays more attention to his Madame Precious dolls than to his child, it's no wonder that Seamus Noblet grew up to be a bit of a jerk. And then he meets this guy. A guy who isn't put off by damage. A guy who's incredibly Zen....

Part of the Expectingverse.

'It's been so long since Seamus has introduced me to any of his friends. Anything that gets him cooking is all right with me. It's taking him so long to find a nice girl who will take care of those things.' )

Summary: Part of the life and times of Seamus Noblet, featuring his dysfunctional parents and a cute guy. Takes place between #4 and #5 of Five Times Seamus Noblet Spent With His Father.

Seamus balanced the covered pan on one hip, dug out his spare key, and let himself in. Dad was probably wrapped up in grading papers, or something. )

Summary: There was a prompt to write about kids, and I wanted to write about Seamus Noblet. Trouble is, he only appears in one brief scene in the movie, and not at all in the TV series (although Chuck shouts at him offscreen in "To Love, Honor, and Pretend"). This is not a lot to go on.

So this is pretty much a Chuck fic, disguised as a Seamus fic.

'Fine! Fine!' exclaims Daddy, in a high and squeaky voice. 'Everything's A-OK. Why should I care? I'm married.' )
