lovesrain44: Smirking Rodney (Smirking Rodney)
Thursday, October 27th, 2011 05:21 am
I remember I was new to SGA fandom, and was reading Seperis's rec list. At the top of the list was a story called "An Affair to Remember." Since I was reading everything at the time, I went and took a look at the story and was dismayed to find that it was a) AU, and b) based on an old movie that I'd never seen. I was sorely disappointed, and besides while the art was pretty, it showed Rodney in a wheelchair! (If you'd seen the movie, you'd know why.)

Blue Skies From Rain is now posted on the AO3.

I've probably done it all wrong, but it's up there. I made it a series of four parts, rather than try to post 29 chapters. Each heading indicates which chapters are included in that part of the series. When I have more time, I'm going to try and update the text with bookmarks and links, so readers can get to each chapter quickly.

Breath of Heaven is now posted on AO3.

Dark Shadows is not a fandom where you can find a lot of stories online; as far as I can tell, anyway. Most of the stories are in zines, and most of the stories are about Barnabas and Josette and the rest of the upper crust of Collinsport. Not many are interested in Willie's story, or what's going on with him, or how hard he works while the rest of the gang drinks brandy in the Front Room. Which is a shame, because the dynamics between Willie and Barnabas, or between Willie and Jason McGuire, or, heck, between Willie and any character is far more exciting to watch because Willie has a Big Secret that he has to keep on Pain of Death. Sure, everyone has secrets in Collinsport, but Willie's Big Secret is BIG. And the changes in his character from the time he arrived as a thief to the time he works for Barnabas Collins up at the Old House are riveting. At least to me. Which is probably why I wrote so many stories about him.

The Willie and Barnabas Diversion is now posted on AO3.

This is one of the few stories I wrote that takes place after Willie gets out of the loony bin. I thought his character wasn't as interesting in this weakened state, yet, one very hot August week, this story came to me. Go figure. This is also the only one of my Dark Shadows stories in which Julia Hoffman appears.

The Nicholas Diversion is now posted on AO3.

God, I love the AO3. Posting is a breeze. Corrections are a breeze. I think each post in the archive can accept up to 50,000 words, which is five times more than live journal can take. The whole thing is set up for exactly what it needs to be, a place to post and share stories. Then there's that swank epub download for ereaders, what an easy thing to do!

Normally I go to Fan Fiction on the Run for my ebooks, but if [personal profile] amalthia hasn't been creating enough SGA ebooks for me like she ought to as my BFF, then I can go to the AO3 and find some for myself. (Which amalthia would only encourage, as she doesn't want to "enable" me in these sorts of things. She's all about growth and self-sufficiency, damnit.)

Ordinary Day is now posted on AO3.

Before I wrote fic for Supernatural, I wrote Dark Shadows fic, namely stories about Willie Loomis, who I adored writing about because he's such a mess and can't seem to stay out of trouble.

All of my Sparta Verse stories have now been posted on AO3. You can find them here.

I think I enjoy the Sparta stories most of all, because I love working with a young Sam, who is frustrated and annoyed at every other turn, and can't seem to keep his mouth shut, even when it will do him the most good. I love it that he's brave, even when he's scared, and I love how he adores Dean with all his heart and soul. As for how he feels about John, well, he's got good days and bad days.

I had a question about Orange Otter Pops - Little Orphan Orange flavor, to be exact. In the past, in my Sparta verse, Sam has been wanting orange otter pops.

Part Three

Turning his mind away from this thought, he moved around Dean and Dad and got the plates and the forks and the glasses and arranged them on the table. He got the salt and pepper shakers out too, thinking that might help with the taste.

Part Two

Dad didn’t say anything as he looked at Dean, but the muscles in his jaw tightened and he started to glare. At Dean, which felt pretty strange, since Sam was always the one being glared at, always the one at the end of that look that said he’d just failed Dad in too many ways to count.

Part One

For a moment, the slow hush of the river beneath the low bent trees was all the sound there was. Beyond that, the hum of the forest played a scratchy green sound in Sam's ears as he hunkered low in the water, bare feet braced against the gravel and stones, feeling the slow, cool rush of water over this thighs and hips. As he peered over the edge of the line of willow sticks, he could see that there were three fish circling around, all alive, fat and sassy, and they would make the best cookout ever. Ever.

Title: Breath of Heaven
Author: Lovesrain44
Genre/Rating: Gen/PG
Word Count: 11,636
Fandom: Dark Shadows
Summary: Willie buys the wrong kind of paint, and has to go back to the paint store. Along the way he runs into trouble, and ends up in the hospital. This sets Barnabas off because he doesn’t like modern doctors poking into his business.
A/N: When I first wrote this, I thought it was a quite gentle story, since Willie kind of gets rescued, but really, it’s one of the meanest I’ve done. 


Barnabas whipped him. Hard. With a switch. Told him to take down his trousers, bent him over the table, and whipped him for an offense that seemed so inconsequential when he’d done it, that by the time Barnabas let him up from the table to pull up his clothes, all thought of it had vanished from his head. The only thing that remained was the leftover taste of his heart sliding into his guts from Barnabas pouncing on him the moment the sun went down, and the slices of acid heat that now marched up and down his backside and legs. The cloth beneath his armpits and along his back was soaked with sweat, and a single hot track of it traced its way along the back of his ear, sliding down his neck to join its fellows. Heart thumping, pushing blood through new cuts and welts that his pants now pressed against, his fingertips pulsing with each shivery jerk of his lungs.

Title: The Things We Carry With Us
Story Rating: PG
Genre: Slash
Word Count: 47, 654
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Warnings: Angst, emo, h/c, incest, terrible weather, touristy local tidbits, and far too many descriptions about food.
Summary: Sam and Dean are on the road, saving people and hunting things, like they always do. Dean discovers that Sam is attempting to turn himself into a monk, and so he does his best to get Sam laid. Sam resists because, of course, who needs to have sex with a girl when Dean’s around? It's about going on a roadtrip with your brother. It's about the food you eat, and the maps you follow. It's about the things you carry with you. (Takes place some time after Heart.)

Part 1 - The Haircut

It starts off with a haircut. Or rather, Sam thinks, it started off with Dean’s mouth open and going, as if because he keeps it closed so much, when it opens, he has no control over it.

Part 2 - Mammoth Spring

Sam wakes up early, but then he usually does. Usually he does a coffee and donut run, too, which puts Dean in a good mood for breakfast. But this morning, he stands by the edge of the window and pulls back the curtains just enough to let him look out, but not enough to wake Dean with the morning light.

Part 3 - Hunting the Kelpie

It’s best to hunt the whatever spell that raised the kelpie by daylight anyhow, for even though neither Sam nor Dean are stupid enough to fall for the kelpie’s call, she is free and running hard as night falls, and they would be hard pressed to resist her when she came and knelt in front of them, her diamond eyes promising them fair travel into the west country, where all good souls go, where everyone you ever loved is waiting for you.
