Length: 3348 words
Prompt: Rosa/Gina/Amy OT3 for [community profile] nightonficmountain for [personal profile] controlscircus.
Pairing: Rosa/Gina/Amy
Other: Also at AO3.

Excerpt: They didn't often agree on anything, but if you asked Rosa, Gina, and Amy, they'd all tell you: it was Gina who started it. Gina liked to tell the story to anyone who looked like they had a spare moment; she loved to brag on her sexual prowess vis-à-vis having two girlfriends.

"It's exhausting," she always said, nodding with a little smug look on her face, "but I find it's worth it."

Prompt: Written for [community profile] jukebox_fest for [ profile] Missy.
Pairing: Taylor/MOC
Other: Also at AO3. Rated PG-13 for an abusive relationship, mostly mental but some mentioned physical abuse and some implied sexual abuse.

Summary/Excerpt: You meet a girl, fall in love, move into her amazing mansion and go to Europe every week. It should be perfect, but it's gonna go down in flames.

She gives you her name, and you Google it automatically, because of course. What you find stops you in your tracks. You stay up until 2:30AM reading about her. She is famous, rich and popular although she doesn't sing, act, or model. She goes to movie premieres and grand openings, and there was absolutely no reason for her to be in a dive bar with you on a random Thursday night. She has thousands of Instagram followers.

It's her. There's no mistaking her eyes.

A lot of things would have to change, at least temporarily.

Lin sees her past here, the criminal enterprises she has raided and the citizens she has helped. Kya buys flowers at a ridiculous mark-up from the street children and makes Lin take them home, telling her that she got her sense of style from her mother and needs more greenery in her house, less rock and metal.

She never missed; it was one of her favorites. Opening the year always felt like waking from a satisfying nap. The country had rested over the winter, and now it was ready to start moving again.

Title: Balancing Act
Fandom: Magic Knight Rayearth/Avatar: The Last Airbender
Length: 3879 words
Prompt: None. I just had this awful idea to write a Rayearth/Avatar fusion. I'm so sorry.
Pairing: Clef/Presea

Pairing: Clow/Yuuko; slight Doumeki/Watanuki; primarily Watanuki gen
Other: Spoilers for xxxHOLiC and Inception both; familiarity with both canons is necessary. Rated PG-13 for non-graphic violence and a moment of eyescream.

Excerpt: "Do you like dreaming?" she whispers, pressing him down onto the divan, resting her hand, fingers splayed, on his chest like a promise. "Do you like it, Watanuki? Do you want to do this for Clow?"

Prompt: [ profile] yuletide 2009: What happened between Ch33 and Ch34 of the book? For [ profile] cstoplurking.
Pairing: Thom/Goran; Kevin/Scarlett in background
Other: Title from a quotation by Joseph Epstein. As far as I can tell, Moore never named Goran's little brother, so I named him.

Excerpt: I was probably going to be Thom forever, but I didn't really mind. Someone had to be the public face of the movement, and my place had been cemented there twice: once, when I gave my real first name to a disillusioned receptionist, and the second time, when I gave a fake one to a gay stranger.

Author's Note: There are two important things to note in this fic: the anime canon Meryl/Vash is a pretty important part of the plot, and also that it is my belief, judging by certain episodes, that Milly and Wolfwood had some sort of physical relationship. Regardless, there is definitely yuri.

Excerpt: It is pitch black in their bedroom and Meryl's hand is resting gently on Milly's pregnant belly. She is smelling Milly's hair, the fragrance of her last bath. Milly smells like something sweet and gentle. Meryl uses the same shampoo, but still manages to smell sharp, hard, like the edge of sweat. Milly doesn't tell her partner that.

Author's Notes: I really doubt that these ficlets would fit into canon timeline, so consider this AU. For the curious the villainesses are based on these real comic book villains: cut in case you want to guess )

Excerpt: Kitten picked at the ridiculously revealing decolletage of her number-two costume and nodded, making a mental note, while trying to seem smart and attentive, though not attentive enough to be a threat to Felinia's dominance. Things had seemed so complicated back then. She thought she had something to prove.

Summary: "If you could not help me, I would not be here, would I? And my name in this lifetime is Hiiragizawa Eriol, Ichihara-san," he says, cocking his head to one side, and he looks so much like his forebear that she becomes hot all over, burning, and she thinks that she will never be able to be cold again. And it's such a shame, because following right behind Clow/Eriol is a young woman with long hair and a lover's gaze.

More than anything nowadays, Yuuko is cold. )
