... That's what you call it, right? What I mean is, my policy on people making fanfic and fanart and podfics and translations and things based on my stuff. I've had a few requests lately, and kept meaning to put up a public post about it.

Okay. General gist? Feel free to make anything you feel like based on my stuff. I'd just appreciate it if you credited the original, and gave me a heads-up if possible. And also ... this has only come up in two cases that I can think of, but make it clear that your work isn't mine? As in, that your story or art isn't 'official' in the sense of a continuation or something I had any input in. Like that? That it's inspired by but not directly connected to mine. (Podfics and translations are slightly different, there, but they shouldn't need that explanation).

Ah. I think that covers most of it. Feel free to PM me the usual way though if you're unsure.

That's fanfic, mind. For my original stuff ... Um. I'd really prefer if you asked me first? I'm a touch territorial in that regard -_-;

I shouldn't need this, but I figured it would be easier to pin one to the top of my journal than two or more -_-; Also, apologies for spamming the flist while I tidy up the journal. *ducks sheepishly*

Includes links to the masterlists for: Avengers, Sanctuary, Supernatural/Good Omens, DC Comics (partial only), Misc. Fandoms (non-crossover) and Original Fiction. Other fandoms, I'd advise searching my tags listings, or the fandoms list on my AO3 page. Also includes a separate list of my AUs by genre of AU, because I'm odd like that.

Basically the Klaus-Gil-Zeetha reunion/confrontation I've been wanting to write for a while, with bonus Agatha slapping Klaus upside the head. (Metaphorically. Mostly). To warn you, I went with pretty much the angstiest, schmoopiest, most OTT version of the reunion that I could think of. This isn't remotely how I think canon will go, this is just pure Wulfenbach-Skifandrian-Heterodyne family feels idfic of the highest order.

Um. Apologies in advance?

Summary: In the close aftermath of the stasis field coming down, once everyone is mostly cured and back in their correct bodies, the prospect of a journey to Skifander in search of aid sparks a confrontation between Gil, his father, Agatha, and the sister Gil hadn't realised he had

Um. I thought I'd vent a whole bundle of Boris and jäger feels at once, and then go calm down for a while? I think that would serve everyone. Yes. Heh.

Title: Love and Loyalty
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Girl Genius
Characters/Pairings: Boris Dolokhov, discussion of the jägers, Agatha, Klaus, and Lucrezia
Summary: On his way back to Castle Wulfenbach after meeting with the Jäger Generals, Boris indulges in a small panic attack over how badly this is all going to go wrong, how many ways it has already done wrong, and all the reasons they're going to keep going regardless. For all that he believes in the Empire, being part of it has never been easy
Wordcount: 3321
Warnings/Notes: Okay. Um. War, slavery, fear, panic, determination, moral dilemmas, moral compromise, sacrifice and a touch of hope

Um. Well. Sort of. Apparently GG has a kinkmeme? I didn't know this but apparently so. And there was this prompt, which I didn't quite manage to stick to, but close enough? Set at some nebulous future point after Mechanicsburg is freed, and probably about to be jossed in fairly short order. Heh.

Backstory Klaus plus Mechanicsburg in the early days of the Empire. I, um. Have no idea what I'm doing, and I may have fudged canon a little bit in the cause of Klaus + jägers + Boris? Also, I didn't get as far as von Pinn.

Title: Prometheus Rising
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Girl Genius
Characters/Pairings: Klaus, Boris, Gkika, Zog, Khrizhan, Goomblast, mention of Gil, Bill, Barry, Lucrezia, Zantabraxus and Klaus Barry. Klaus & Boris, Klaus & jägers
Summary: "And all too soon he was at the gates of Mechanicsburg. Polite as you please, but here nonetheless." The world is in ruins and Klaus needs an army, he needs information, he needs to know what happened. Even if Bill and Barry are gone now, there's always been one place he could go for that.
Wordcount: 8107
Warnings/Notes: Empire building, military threats, political alliances, death of children, loss, grief, anger, the madness place, slightly shaky canon

I have never written in this fandom before, and I kind of blitzed through a lot of the comic at speed, so I apologise in advance for any important canon details that I may have forgotten -_-;

Title: The Safety Standards Need Work
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Girl Genius
Characters/Pairings: Bill, Barry, Klaus, Judy, Jägers, the Castle. Bill & Barry & Klaus, primarily
Summary: The first time Bill and Barry brought their friend Klaus Wulfenbach home to Mechanicsburg, it ... didn't necessarily go well. On the bright side, though, they didn't kill him! It was a close run thing, but they did not immediately get him killed
Wordcount: 4666
Warnings/Notes: Pre-canon, possibly shaky grasp of canon, canon-typical violence and insanity, dodgy humour

In theory for a comment_fic prompt of 'nameless city', but as you can see I wandered off from that a bit -_-; A tiny piece of darkling nostalgia, since I've been reading Labyrinth fanfic lately.

Title: Eternity Trembles
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: The Labyrinth (1986)
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Williams, Jareth. Jareth/Sarah
Summary: "When I was a child, I thought like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." But the loss of childhood is not necessarily the loss of magic, just the knowledge, now, of its prices. Jareth won even as he lost, and as an adult Sarah begins to understand that, and to find joy in it.
Wordcount: 2461
Warnings/Notes: Magic, power exchange, oaths, romance, purple prose, nostalgia -_-;

Or, well, Spock realising he loves McCoy fic, anyway. Yes, once again, this is set in the aftermath of "All Our Yesterdays". Um. It's a great episode for these two? Hinted and/or vague references to other episodes as well. And to warn in advance, this is purely Spock struggling with his feelings, thorny as they are when it comes to McCoy, so have some Vulcan soul-searching and not much else? *grins sheepishly* My apologies.

Title: The Ask and the Answer
Rating: PG
Fandom: Star Trek: The Original Series
Characters/Pairings: Spock, thinking of McCoy and Zarabeth. Spock/McCoy
Summary: "Are you trying to kill me, Spock? Is that what you really want?" Spock had never considered what he wanted from the doctor, until McCoy had asked him and suddenly he was faced with answering. In the aftermath of Sarpeidon, he struggles to understand his own response and what it might mean
Wordcount: 2400
Warnings/Notes: Um. Pain, fear, hope, incredibly thorny relationships. Introspection, self-analysis, realisation of love

Written for a prompt on comment_fic, on a theme of rebirth. Um. Contains references to beliefs that I only have shaky knowledge of at best, to warn you in advance. And I'm not sure I agree with Khan, it just seemed like this would be close to what he believed, given both "Space Seed" and "Wrath of Khan"?

Title: Samsara
Rating: PG
Fandom: Star Trek TOS
Characters/Pairings: Khan Noonien Singh
Summary: Khan did not believe in karma. He believed in action and in strength, in hell and in vengeance. What costs he paid were not his own, but those imposed upon him. To his last breath, he believed that
Wordcount: 715
Warnings/Notes: I'm basing the discussion of karma and samsara (rebirth) in this solely on some quick research on Wikipedia. So, you know, take that with a HUGE grain of salt, and anyone with a better understanding of the concepts feel free to inform/correct me? *ducks sheepishly*

For a prompt on comment_fic, on the theme of space, because the universe wants me to write space opera right now. Heh. Fandom is somewhat random.

Title: Space Crazy
Rating: PG
Fandom: The A-Team (original flavour)
Characters/Pairings: Hannibal, Face, Murdock, B.A. and an original character. Team shenanigans
Summary: Sometimes rescues can look a bit like kidnappings. And sometimes there's some overlap between mercenary work and space piracy. Or there is when the A-Team is involved, anyway
Wordcount: 1559
Warnings/Notes: Humour, AU, kidnapping-for-a-good-cause, the B.A. flying special

Um. This literally popped into my head in the past two days, because someone described a spaceship as a 'cathedral ship' and something pinged in my brain. This is, essentially, sort of a combination of the worldbuilding from 'Space Electric' and 'Wind at Midnight', combined with random elements from every space opera I've ever seen, with some cyberpunk thrown in for good measure. Ah. My apologies in advance.

Title: The Long Dark
Rating: PG-13
Universe: Aeterna Nema
Characters/Pairings: Diona, Ebsin, Tielfin, Alial, Aban, Kallik, Iena, Sahvis, Mateo. Diona/Ebsin (F/F)

Wordcount: 8325
Warnings/Notes: Ah. Space Opera, Science Fantasy, Soft Sci-Fi, Exile, Diaspora, Transhumanism, Alien Tech, First Contact, Failed First Contact, Space Battles, Psychic Powers, Combat Telepathy, Comrades-in-Arms, Femslash, Intergalactic Space

Written for a prompt on comment_fic for McCoy 1st person POV. Set during "Encounter at Farpoint", because that scene kills me every time.

Title: Shuttle Conductor
Rating: G
Fandom: Star Trek TOS & Star Trek TNG

Summary: Commander Data and Admiral McCoy have a little conversation about insanity, humanity, and the unintended consequences of space travel while waiting for McCoy's shuttle off the Enterprise D

Okay. This starts off as a coda to "The Empath", after McCoy offers himself to be tortured to death instead of the other two. For the purpose of this story, I'm pretending "Requiem for Methuselah" took place before "The Empath", yes? The second half of the fic takes place after the end of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

Title: Soul's Rest, Soul's Excitement
Rating: PG
Fandom: Star Trek TOS and the TOS movies
Characters/Pairings: Spock, McCoy, a little Kirk. Spock & McCoy, Spock/McCoy, Spock/McCoy/Kirk
Summary: After one attempted sacrifice too many, Spock and McCoy forge an understanding of what lies between them. Years and a rebirth later, that understanding is revisited, older and wiser, and expressed for the first time to Jim
Wordcount: 4506
Warnings/Notes: Friendship/love, self-sacrifice, death & rebirth, discussion of platonic and romantic loves & the variations between, mind melds, psychic links, and a threeway relationship with slightly different loves along each axis

I'm rewatching Star Trek TOS again (as people have probably noticed), and I was rewatching "The Immunity Syndrome" last night. And something struck me about the conversation between Spock and McCoy before Spock heads out in the shuttle.

For a prompt of comment_fic. A tiny little military horror story on the theme of darkness. I apologise in advance for my lack of knowledge of the military, its ranking system or its tactics.

Title: Kingdom of the Blind
Rating: Light R
Fandom: Original Work
Characters/Pairings: The Lieutenant, the Sergeant, the Corporal. Team.
Summary: Three men, remnants of a military unit, are caught in a pitch-black base when they begin to realise that their previous understanding of their circumstances may have been ... somewhat off

Warnings/Notes: Dialogue only. Darkness, psychological warfare, body horror, vengeance, language
Disclaimer: Mine. More or less, anyway.
