ptahrrific: Jon and Stephen, "Believe in the me who believes in you" (fake news)
Title: Boys (and Girls) of Summer
Rating: PG-13
Contents: Descriptions of mania/depression, strained non-monogamy
Characters/pairings: "Stephen"/Jon, "Stephen"/Lorraine, "Stephen"/various
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.

For [community profile] queer_fest, prompt: Any fandom, any character, Being queer and mentally ill, and knowing the difference between the two. "Stephen" is (enthusiastically) functionally bi when he's manic, and has no sex drive at all when he's depressed. His wife and his best friend try to manage him through his moods, and everyone (even Stephen himself) is mostly guessing as to where his genuine attractions fall.

( Lorraine is aware of her husband's escapades, and tries not to let them bother her. )

Title: Five Ways Stephen Reconciled His Faith And His Sexuality
Rating: PG
Characters/pairings: past "Stephen"/Jonathan; a cat named after Ronald Reagan; "Stephen"/Lorraine; OCs; P. K. Winsome; angel!Feist; Jon/"Stephen"
Contents: varying religious views; rapid tense shifts; lots of tears; mystic poetry. Emotional abuse in #2 (of the ex-gay flavor). Self-harm in #3 (of the canon flavor).
Two disclaimers, with love )

This follows an unclaimed [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest prompt: "2575. RPF - Pundits, "Stephen Colbert"/Jon Stewart - Stephen struggles to reconcile his faith and his sexuality." The operative word here being "struggles."

The poem is translated by Coleman Barks in The Essential Rumi; full text can be found here. Shortly afterwards, Stephen quotes this treatise on sin by Richard Simpson.

Author's own religious views do not actually appear in this fic.


She's wearing silk, although not enough of it to stop smooth flesh from brushing against his neck, freshly washed and smelling like soap and lavender. Which means that if he values his spot on the mattress, he's going to spend the rest of the evening envisioning Daniel Craig's abs. )

No fake newsmen were harmed in the making of this fic.

An excursus to Expecting (and, thus, part of the Expectingverse), taking place between its final chapter and epilogue. Described in comparison as "the emotional equivalent of jumping into a cold pool after soaking in the jacuzzi." Stephen has a new baby, a new marriage, and the love of a good man — so, naturally, this is when he starts to fall apart.

The current version of the story is a much-needed revision from the original, betaed by the painstaking and phenomenal [personal profile] stellar_dust. Title comes from the Billy Joel song. Mirror on the AO3.

Title: Mister America
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mild innuendo, swearing, bondage, large images.
Pairings: "Stephen"/wife, "Stephen"/Papa Bear, and (if you squint) "Stephen"/Jon

First "Stephen" mix. A comprehensive character study, made all the way back in early '08.



He's so vain / He probably thinks this mix is about him. )

Title: A Tiny Version of Himself
Fandom: TDS, TCR
Rating: PG
Words: ~1400
Two disclaimers, with love )

Notes: Normally I write stories in which "Stephen" is pushed to the brink of complete internal disintegration, and someone (mainly Jon) pulls him back. This one takes place a year or two after he's gone over the edge.

The title is from I Am America: "Children are tiny versions of you, minus the crushing failure."

Mirror on the AO3.

'Hi, Jon! Hi! Come see what I made! Did you bring me anything?' )

Title: Expecting
Fandom: TCR
Genre: Dramedy
Words: ~55,400
Disclaimer: Found on individual chapters. In short, not real, and not mine.

Someone asked if there was any TDS mpreg, and "how would that even work?" My brain apparently took this as a challenge.

As you will see in the trailers, it's not as farfetched as you think. (Actual quotation from the good Dr. Colbert on the subject of getting pregnant: "How hard could it be?")

Part of the Expectingverse.
