25th-Aug-2011 01:42 am - Naruto: Model Behaviour (Kakashi/Iruka; cast)
I honestly think this fandom wants to give me high blood pressure from excessive caffeine intake. Written for this wonderful kakairu kink meme prompt. [edit:] Also, because Naruto has apparently gifted me with insomnia, leave prompts! :D

Model Behaviour

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kakashi/Iruka, random guest appearances
Warning: Workplace AU
Summary: Allow me to define the word "office-mate" for you: it's a noun. Not a verb.

5317 words and the death of mathematics.

He left formulae scribbles on the memos that he inconsiderately littered Iruka's neat-as-a-pin desk with, his integral signs curved into the beautiful arch of a musical clef. For a man who's knowledge of the financial system was encyclopaedic, his office was unusually bare of references: only bits of literature or prosaic mathematics books chucked here and there, alongside a porn collection that Iruka had discovered and screamed mentally at and then hid under a hundred layers of paperwork. )
23rd-Aug-2011 02:50 am - Naruto: Doing It ANBU (Sai, Kakashi, Yamato; cast)
Out of nowhere, Saific! My fingers also now hurt, and I can barely close my eyes for caffeination.

Doing It ANBU

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG
Characters: Sai, Kakashi; Yamato, Sasuke, cast
Warning: AU futurefic.
Summary: Rehabilitating Sasuke was supposed to be easier than fighting a war.

7974 words and, mm, but canon is delicious for breakfast.

Three months, sixteen missions, and an uncountable number of attempts on his sanity after taking on ANBU captaincy, Sai was beginning to understand where Yamato-taicho's creepy eyes originated from: let Kakashi-senpai take you at unawares too often and, eventually, your face began to stick that way. )
20th-Aug-2011 03:01 am - Naruto: Handling (Kakashi; cast) [2/2]
Handling
Part 2/?

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kakashi; Minato and cast.
Warnings: Set during the Third Shinobi World War.
Summary: This is about how Kakashi handles.

1768 words of genny-gen-gen.

Part 1

Kakashi could pinpoint the day the war ended, because that day he remembered how to be hungry. )
19th-Aug-2011 02:02 am - Naruto: Handling (Kakashi; cast) [1/1]
I'm not a 100% about posting this as an on-going WIP, but letting it sit and gather words is like watching cotton-candy grow out of proportion. Better to release it into the DW wild before pruning it down for AO3? 8D?

Also, my titling skills do not, it seems, get better with age...

Handling

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kakashi; Minato and cast.
Warnings: Set during the Third Shinobi World War.
Summary: This is about how Kakashi handles.

1964 words and, mmm, gen!

Hatake Kakashi, jounin, reported to the Hokage the loss of one of his team-members; other than that, the enemy had been prevented from taking a critical position, and the mission at Kannabi could be called a success.  )
8th-Aug-2011 01:19 am - Naruto: Felicity on the Far Side (Kakashi; random guest appearances)
Naruto fic! After a year of radio silence! *clutches at head* My writing feels like it's gone down the proverbial shitter! More fodder for my quarter-life crisis! /o\

Felicity on the Far Side

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG
Characters: Kakashi; cameos by ANBU, jounin, a hokage, oh my.
Warnings: Set in the interim between parts I and II.
Summary: When Naruto left, he had been 28, and young enough not to feel old.

1300 words, hopeless K, and floaty canon!

'Are you having a mid-life crisis?' Tsunade asked without preamble, both snide and suspicious. )


[edit:] Am also taking prompts (especially for Naruto!) if anyone has them~
7th-Jul-2010 02:00 pm - Nasdack: If Talking Were Effective, Yelling Would Be Academic, 1/? (Rufus/Balthier/Tseng & guests)
One morning I woke up and realised I could make Rufus terrifying. My life has not been the same since. Many thanks to [profile] pere_chan and [profile] dnatio_memoriae for flailing through betajobs, and much has changed since - though, since it's me, not necessarily for the better... With these boys I think "worse" is always a better option.

If Talking Were Effective, Yelling Would Be Academic (1/?)

Fandom: FFVII/FFXII [community profile] nasdack AU
Characters: Rufus, Balthier, Tseng; Cast of Office Gawkers: Reno, Rude, Elena
Rating: PG13
Summary: Rufus, Enfant Terrifying. Since it would be bad advice to tell any of them to talk things out, Rufus opts for alternatives.

3275 words of ?!?!

'Draw,' Rufus saysore slowly, rolling up the cuffs of his pristinely pressed white shirt with his ringed fingers, 'the shutters.'
3rd-Jul-2010 12:06 am - Historical Sengoku: Hanbei drabble
*apologises to DW for the backlog spam*

Dear History,

I'd feel bad about abusing you, except that you are just way too cool. Dude, Hanbei was pimpin' over his family by 15, a super cool general by 28 and living in hermitude because he was too awesome for Politics and Bloodshed. Then he got courted and given a best friendship and a multitude of supremely cool commands, all while trying not to die from internal illnesses. You can't give me this kind of guy and expect me to leave him alone. Love,

K.



Your Takenaka Hanbei/Japanese History Indoctrination Starts Here:

Meiba

371 words. Hanbei and Hideyoshi.

「名馬を買うと、実際の戦闘のときにその名馬を惜しんで戦機を逃がすことになりますから、これがいいのです」

Meiba wo kau to jissai no sentou no toki ni sono meiba wo oshinde senki wo nigasu koto ni narimasu kara; kore ga ii no desu.

If I bought a famous horse, there may come a battle when I let slip military strategies - in defence of the horse. This [sickly] one will do.



'This one here's a rather pathetic looking one, isn't he?' )
28th-Jul-2009 12:55 am - FFVII Crisis Core: A July Day (Some People Know Too Much) (Tseng, Zack)
Back to Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core! It's like I never left. 8D This one - and the ones that'll hopefully come after it - is meant to be part of some lazy set of lighter-hearted drabbles about Shinra. 8D WE'LL SEE HOW IT WORKS OUT. This one floats alone in the old sea of the odd Zack and Tseng drabble-era.

Prompts are perfectly welcome in the comments. The more hilarious the better!

A July Day (Some People Know Too Much)

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (Crisis Core timeline)
Characters: Zack, Tseng; random guest appearance by Kunsel
Rating: PG
Warnings: Gen, and humour, alas!
Summary: Zack whiles away a July day, and figures that some people just know too much.

2185 words and an inability to keep things short!

Zack whistled under his breath. 'This is one crazy city.' )
23rd-Jul-2009 11:23 pm - Gundam Wing: Passover (6, 13; 5 & other random guests)
Many thanks to [info - personal] voksen for the repeated cheerleading and withstanding my Unending Whine. 8D *buffs this fic* I'm really kind of happy with this one. \o/

Passover

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Characters: Zechs, allusions to Treize and 13/6 if you squint. Random guest appearances, including Wufei.
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Set just after the series, but pre-Endless Waltz. Standalone part of a future series (Treize Lives!TM).
Summary: Friendship is unnecessary; it has no survival value. Zechs lives, but that, too, is an oversimplification.

5651 words and a whole bunch of... words! Plus a summary that cannibalises a C.S Lewis quote.

An asylum's an asylum by any name. )
27th-Jun-2009 01:19 am - Star Trek XI: Mind Bullets (Kirk, Bones, Pike)
The great and wonderful [info]charlie_d_blue is responsible for all the awesome in this fic, and that is true.

Mind Bullets

Fandom: Star Trek XI
Rating: PG
Characters: Kirk, Bones, Pike
Warnings: Set directly before the Romulan attack, in the glory days of peace.
Summary: Kirk versus a machine versus his mind:

'One more,' Bones growls. 'One more, Jim, and then you stop doing this to yourself because it's ridiculous and it's out of hand and you can't win this, this isn't a game.'

'I don't believe,' Jim says sweetly, 'in no-win situations.'

6017 words and Kirk's turn at introspection! In a manner of speaking!

One day, Bones brings a dongly machine thing into Jim's room and sets it up on Jim's table and then looks Jim in the eye and says, 'Jim, quid pro quo.' )
6th-Jun-2009 02:39 am - Star Trek XI: New, And Stumbling Forward (Spock; Pike, Crew &c.)
I never thought I'd put the words "Spock" and "internal monologue" together in the same phrase, but HERE WE GO ANYWAY. 8D

New, And Stumbling Forward

Fandom: Star Trek XI
Rating: PG
Characters: Spock; Pike, Scotty, Chekov, Uhura, Kirk
Summary: After Vulcan, Spock recovers his footing. Genfic.

2508 words and lots of Spock?

It is a portrait of the galaxy reacting, the children of his home planet's system flung free. )
3rd-Jun-2009 10:24 pm - Star Trek XI: To The Enterprise: of Warp Barriers, Captains, and Other Scary Things (Chekov, &c.)
For [info] - livejournal.combessemerprocess's prompt: Star Trek Reboot, The Crew, what tradition does Star Fleet have for crew members crossing the warp speed barrier for the first time? How does this get celebrated on the Enterprise?

To The Enterprise: of Warp Barriers, Captains, and Other Scary Things

Fandom: Star Trek 2009
Rating: PG
Characters: Chekov, Scotty, Kirk, Spock
Summary: Mr. Spock's eyes flick towards the blatantly huge and complicated (and exciting) and blatantly huge mathematical and engineering schematics on the console screen. Chekov can practically see the cogs in Mr. Spock's mind whirr - he is very, very fast at telemetry, which means there is probably no getting around the fact that what they have here is a plan to break the current warp speed record into many small pieces. Pavel wonders if that is the only thing that will be broken.

2734 words and lots of fail!invented!maths. 8D

Mr. Spock clears his throat. 'Mr. Sulu, Mr. Chekov,' he intones, and Chekov feels his spine try to straighten itself in a fit of biological self-preservation. 'How long more before we clear the Farmonion Corridor and re-enter established Federation space?' )
28th-May-2009 02:51 am - Final Fantasy VII/Highlander: The Business of Fear
The Business of Fear

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (OGC)/Highlander (/Baccano!)
Characters: Rufus, Methos; cameos by Tseng and Luck
Rating: Soft R
Summary: Rufus needs men who are know something of the business of fear.

Notes: Runs in the same line as New Men (Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII), but you don't need to read it to read this! Written for the no_true_pair prompt: Rufus is bound and blinded -- does Methos try to help, or take advantage of the situation?

4952 words and Rufus doing some recruiting!


Hide and seek is something Methos has come to be good at over the years, but he has absolutely no illusions about playing against the Shinra Company. )
17th-May-2009 04:31 pm - Final Fantasy VII: Year One (Reeve, Veld, Lazard, Tseng, Rufus, Midgar, &c.)
This fic officially took my brain, injected a thousand CCs of politics into it, beat it up and left me staggering about wildly. I haven't written something like this, I think, since Empery.

The last (and crowning) jewel of the Honourable Men triple bill (they're all standalones, though, so no need to read through).

I humbly request that you give this one a try. ♥ Okay going to go expire from exhaustion now.

Year One

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII (BC through CC)
Characters: Lazard-Tseng-Rufus, Veld, Reeve, does the City of Midgar count?
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Spans through Crisis Core and Before Crisis backstory. You don't need to know BC, but it helps, and there's a tiny appendix at the bottom of the fic to help you if you'd like.
Summary: From the journals of Urban Development, filling in the lives and empty spaces in Midgar.

7575 words and Midgar being alive.

One gets the impression that we shall soon be bringing them brighter futures as well. )
15th-May-2009 01:10 am - Gundam Wing: The Old Lie (Treize, Zechs)
♥ to [info]voksen for being my enabler and beta! First Gundam Wing fic! I'm only, y'know, about a decade late to this fandom, that's all! :D :D :D Second in the Honourable Men triple bill.

The Old Lie

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Characters: Treize, Zechs (13, 6)
Rating: PG
Summary: All men graduate from one history to another.

1984 (ha!) words and past-fic everywhere!

'And to your unreasonable expectations, Lord Khushrenada,' Zechs replies with a private smile, as they drink to oxymorons great and small. )
10th-May-2009 11:23 pm - Final Fantasy XII: Make as much of me as gentry (Ffamran, Cid)
Fandom check: Final Fantasy XII?! Yeah, I don't know either. \o\ Apparently screaming at your laptop for 30 hours makes you go a bit funny in the head.

First in the second triple bill: and they are all, all honourable men.

Make as much of me as gentry

Fandom: Final Fantasy XII (OGC)
Characters: Ffamran, Dr. Cid
Rating: PG
Warnings: Backstory here we come, Ffamran-who?
Summary: The good doctor once spoke to his good son.

1013 words and lots of Cid posturing! \o

'You know, when your mother died, I had a thought,' said the good Doctor. )
17th-Oct-2008 01:04 am - Final Fantasy VII/XII: (...) Theoretical Joint Bunansa-Shinra Empire (Balthier/Tseng, Rufus/Tseng)
IT'S GROWING INTO SOME BIZARRE KIND OF MONSTER.

Some Things You Can't Buy, For Everything Else There's The Theoretical Joint Bunansa-Shinra Empire

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stockmarket
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Rufus/Tseng
Rating: Soft R
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: The stock markets exploded. Balthier, Rufus and Tseng are hot. This comment thread happened.
Inflicted upon the world by: [info]logistika_nyx and [info]karanguni

Previous episodes:

Part the first
Part the second

You don't really have to read them in any order. I don't even know if we have an order.

2363 words and ho'shit, five thousand backstories! \o\

'Good boy,' Tseng says with a smile. )
14th-Oct-2008 07:05 pm - Final Fantasy VII/XII: Strange Untitled Stockmarket AU (Tseng/Balthier, Tseng/Rufus)
Strange Untitled Stockmarket!AU

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stock Exchange
Rating: PG-99
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Tseng/Rufus
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: It's all [info]logistika_nyx's fault (on LJ). A good chunk of this belongs to her, adapted to fit the situation and tense. You can read the original crack-ery here to see precisely which bits. Nyx: I apologise. Profusely. But probably not profusely enough.

Mostly, this is just a trader!AU: in which Tseng and Balthier make money on the gone-to-shit stock markets of our world. And Rufus waggles his eyebrows a bit. Hooray!

2425 words and oh, such a hell I am going to for this. Beware un-beta'd tense shifts!

'Are you an optimist?' Balthier would say into the receiver, when Tseng picked up. )
24th-Sep-2008 10:41 pm - Batman/Batman Beyond: Better Dead Than Lead arc (Dick, Bruce, Terry)
Don't know how many people on the flist are actually Batman/Batman Beyond fans, but my KF picks seem to be perking some interest, and I have this gigantic multi-parter being fed into my LJ - thought it might be worthwhile porting and compiling what I've got right now over. Have at it! I'd totally love anyone saying anything about this - watch me be terrified on my first really huge major fic! IN A COMPLETELY OFF THE BALL UNFAMILIAR FANDOM! \o/



Better Dead Than Lead arc

compiling Gold is just a trick of the light, And lead is light as a feather and So leave me where the kids are all right.

Characters: Bruce, Dick, Terry
Warnings: Pre-slash sort of edging into the Batfamily's idea of slash. Assumes Return of the Joker has happened; adopts comic backstory for the most part of everything.
Summary: After a 50 year displacement into the future, Dick deals with what has and hasn't changed in the era of Terry McGinnis - of Batmen, and boy wonders.

Wordcount? Over 10,000. I'm not counting this one, oh no...

You're using your command voice, Dick wants to tell Bruce. Do you realise that? )
16th-Sep-2008 04:24 am - Discworld: Colours (Moist, Vetinari, Adora Belle cameo)
I, I am drunk on studying and Pratchett and Seven Nation Army/Sweet Dreams, and it is 415 in the morning, and if I wake up tomorrow and regret this terribly, I will pretend it didn't happen. 8D

Colours

Fandom: Discworld (post-Making Money)
Characters: Vetinari, Moist, Adora Belle cameo
Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoilers for Making Money? Vetinari being creepy?
Summary: Black isn't exactly Moist's colour, but Vetinari prefers to make his own decisions about this (and every) kind of thing.

2111 words, Vetinari showing affection the only way he knows how, and, um, clothes!

'Black isn't quite your colour,' said Vetinari, and Moist wasn't sure how to take that. )
