Writing has been hard lately. But with September just around the corner, I wanted to talk about some of the things I'll miss in the DCnU. ♥

Title: Golden
Fandom: DCU
Character(s): Damian Wayne, Stephanie Brown, Dick Grayson, Diana of Themyscira
Words: ~1,400 words
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: The characters don't belong to me. I will never make money off this.
A/N: No specific spoilers beyond the events of Batman RIP and Wonder Woman #600; ignores Odyssey.


Summary: 'No, Girl Blunder, she isn't here yet. Which, by the way, is none of your business because she asked for Batman's assistance, and since Batman—'

'Stolen Amazon artifact, yadda yadda yadda, I know,' Stephanie interrupts. Damian hates being interrupted. 'O tracked it down for her.'




I want to be her when I grow up )
swatkat: (lots: because she is pretty)

Title: No Constellations Here
Fandom: Legend of the Seeker
Character(s)/Pairing: Cara/Kahlan
Words: ~4,300
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: The characters don't belong to me. I will never make money off this.
A/N: Many thanks to [personal profile] hibernate and [profile] agonyoftheblank for being awesome. Title from Lynn Davies' Before The Phoenicians: I find no constellations here, /do not whisper names to the white fires. Please note that this story involves some Agiel-induced violence.



Summary: "Zedd leaves camp at dawn, taking along with him, it seems, the last shreds of joy from their lives, leaving her alone with her thoughts—and Cara"

[Kahlan and Cara deal with being ~alone together; takes off from 2.09, 'Dark']

Title: Though it may look like a disaster
Author/Artist: [profile] swatkat24
Recipient: camelotsolstice
Rating: R
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Arthur/Merlin
Word Count: 11,320
Summary: Merlin and Arthur are stranded on a deserted island. There's a lion, and some powerful magic.

Notes: For the prompt: 'island', a canon-ish AU. This story's relationship to actual mythology is more tenuous than the show's relationship to history. Title from Elizabeth Bishop, "One Art." It was originally posted here.

Cara has many feelings )

I am sad I won't be doing [community profile] femslash10. [profile] femslash09 was incredibly fun. Meanwhile, I'm not writing, fan fiction or Other Important Things, and it is a terrible, terrible thing. Have some random post-finale Cara torture so that you can feel terrible too.

I ignored things I was supposed to do (like, you know, study) and watched the last few episodes of House, so I'm all caught up now! I'll talk about it later, brain a little fried at the moment. Meanwhile, have a snippet of the Merlin-HP fusion AU I have been threatening to write for a while now, just to remind myself that I can still write and should get back to it again. With my sincerest apologies to JKR.

Fandom: Merlin
Pairing: Gwen/Morgana (Arthur/Merlin)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Once there was a prince in Camelot, and his name was Arthur. He was noble prince, a valiant prince, purer and truer than ordinary men. His charm held sway over men and beast alike, and once, it is said, he even managed to tame a rare and mystical unicorn.

A/N: 3500 words. Crack. Unicorns. Utter silliness. *facepalm* Many thanks to [personal profile] roga for looking through this. ♥ Set some time after 1.11, and has nothing to do with S2 canon.

swatkat: knight - er, morgana - in shining underwear (Default)
Somewhere between considering realism in unicorn!crack!fic and plotting out [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest space pirates!au!fic and rewatching The Labyrinth of Gedref for the five hundredth time to perfect my knowledge of unicorn lore in Merlin (for the record, my favourite scene in the episode is not the 'I WILL DIE FOR YOU' of TRUE DESTINY but the one where Morgana asks for food and Arthur and Merlin smirk, because obviously they're going to feed her the rat stew now), my brain short-circuited and is currently stuck in crack!AU!mode. I cannot function normally anymore. I can't write, I can't think.

For instance, it feels perfectly normal that House 6.03 should call for the AU where House and Wilson are famous television chefs, possibly currently hosting something like Top Chef, where the Ducklings and D2 are competitors (SPOILER ALERT: AMBER WINS). Cuddy, of course, is the harangued executive producer, struggling to keep the show alive against all odds, because Edward Vogler, the Evil Network Boss, wants to cancel the show in favour of a reality show featuring Speidi.

It feels perfectly normal to read this (very highly recommended) BSG fusion AU (if you're familiar with both 'verses) and think how Uther/Arthur/Morgana = = Bill/Lee/Kara and then imagine the AU where Galactica crew find Earth—and Camelot. And Uther is all 'MAAAGIC! I KEEL YOU!', before Roslin takes matters into her hands ('You're being unreasonable, Your Majesty. Now why don't we have a… rational discussion?'). Arthur, after initial wariness, is very pleased to meet one Mr. Lee Adama. and then they bond over Daddy Issues and Manpain )

And, and, the Quidditch fusion AU, where Morgana Le Fay is Seeker for the Holyhead Harpies (even though her name or her surname does not begin with a 'G', and no, her middle name doesn't either, and NO SHE IS NOT CHANGING HER NAME). Her rivalry with Arthur Pendragon (who also happens to be her stepbrother)—currently Beater and Captain of the Montrose Magpies—is legendary, ranging back from their Hogwarts days (Arthur took great pleasure in aiming every Bludger at Morgana's head; however, Slytherin usually won). The Harpies, however, lost their British and Irish League as well as their European League matches to the Magpies the previous season, much to Morgana's dismay (which was further increased when the Quidditch Today only printed a tiny, five-page interview of hers and DID AN ENTIRE PHOTOSHOOT WITH ARTHUR). Meanwhile, Morgana may or may not be harbouring longstanding… feelings for Guinevere Smith, the Daily Prophet's Quidditch correspondent (their unlikely friendship did not endear Morgana to some of her more prejudiced Pureblood housemates, but frankly, she did not—does not—give a damn), and Arthur may or may not have struck up a sort of friendship with Merlin (not the heir of Merlin, no really, that's not funny), Gaius'—the Magpies' team physician and his father's old friend—boy genius assistant, whose hobby is designing the perfect broom. Will the Harpies avenge their losses? Will Morgana be able to profess her complete, undying love for Gwen? Will Arthur get over his Daddy Issues (Uther Pendragon, former captain of the Magpies; ten straight wins in the British and Irish League, plus two European titles; England's star Seeker; current President of the national selection board; owner of 80 per cent Magpies shares)? Will Merlin design the perfect broom?

this one practically writes itself )

See what I mean?

Help.

So you know, that other show of mine? The one I have studiously avoided talking about because I fear fandom might ruin it for me? TODAY IS THE DAY, FLIST. Have another fic snippet, in honour of the upcoming TWO HOUR premiere. For the [livejournal.com profile] cuddy_fest prompt: Cuddy, Amber, Cameron, and Thirteen are pirates in space. Gen or femslashy, the only requirement is generous helpings of AWESOME. (yes, I will finish this story)

In honour of new Merlin, have a snippet from a longer story that is currently undecided between being angst&doom or OT4 adventure. Gwen&Morgana, mostly pre-series.

[Every Fairy-Tale Hero]


Cuddy, AU, 6100 words, spoilers till the end of Season 4.

Features some het, although that's not the focus of this story.

[livejournal.com profile] hihoplastic allowed me to steal borrow a seminal thing from her fabulous House/Angel x-over, Never Heals. And then she read through this thing and encouraged me, for which I can't thank her enough. ♥

If you do manage to read through the entire story, leave a word. Any word.



Summary: Her life would make a boring story.
