ptahrrific: Jon and Stephen, "Believe in the me who believes in you" (fake news)
Title: I Am Qumarica (And So Can You!)
Rating: Through R
Contents: Slavery, humiliation, attempted murder, consent issues of all kinds
Characters/pairings: Primarily Jon/"Stephen", Olivia/Kristen, and Sam/Jason, with others
Blanket 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.

Loosely connected tales from the AU where Jon owns a harem, with a bunch of the correspondents as his concubines. Featuring idficcy sex slavery for some, snark and wary self-sufficiency for others, a dark!Jon struggling to redeem himself, and a background of vaguely cutthroat political infighting.

Takes place in a fictional empire called Qumarica, a play on the fictional state of Qumar in The West Wing (h/t [personal profile] politicette for the idea). Thus the title.

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.

Title: Stay (1/4)
Rating: PG
Warnings: Yelling, Googlebombs.

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.)

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.

Title: Nate Corddry and the Supply Closet of Doom
Fandom: The Colbert Report (the characters); The Daily Show
Genre: Comedy
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~1900
Warnings: Sex. It's offscreen, but there's a lot of it (eleven pairings total).
Disclaimer: The Colbert Report and its characters are the creation of Stephen Colbert, Eric Drysdale, and the other writers. Characters used without permission - but with love (and, more importantly from a legal standpoint, without profit).

And the real people are, well, real. Regardless, the story is not. I wrote a disclaimer about this as a poem. That disclaimer )


Notes: All the correspondents mentioned can be found on this list. (They date the story pretty well.) As for non-correspondents: TCR staff are in their Report characters; Laura is the intern to whom Stephen once did his unflattering Chinese stereotype impression, which was not meant to be broadcast but caught by the blogosphere; and if you don't catch one of the pairing references, [livejournal.com profile] mac_hearts_pc should clue you in.

Mirror on the AO3.

Nate is the only person not getting any action in the Daily Show supply closet. )
