Note on tags: I generally add tags only for characters who play a significant role in a story, and not for characters who only make a cameo appearance and don't contribute significantly to advancing the plot. Where there are a large number of charcters who each have small but fairly critical roles in advancing the plot, I use the ensemble cast/secondary characters tag.

Note on warnings and ratings: While everything I post is "read at own risk", I do aim to warn for the major categories of physical violence, sexual violence and major character death, and indicate that no warnings are necessary if none of these apply. (This is broadly in line with AO3's system of warnings; I'd also warn for underage, but I don't think I've ever written any.) Sometimes I forget to include warnings, so please let me know if you think a warning should be included. Ratings are based on typical British values for what is appropriate for each age; this means I'm more likely to rate high for violence than for sexual content or language.

Fandom: Earth 2
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 1135
Summary: Devon is angry at the world, for the reasons all seventeen year olds are angry at the world and for a few reasons all of her own.
Disclaimer: These stories are based on the Amblin Entertainment/Universal Television series Earth 2. They were written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from them nor was any infringement of copyright intended.

Title: The Arrow Affair
Fandom: Who Killed Cock Robin? (Fairytales and Folktales)
Rating: General
Warnings: None
Words: 2,800
Summary: When Thomas "Cock" Robin is murdered in an unusual fashion, Inspector Rousette must follow the trail that leads to the murderer.
Author's Note: Based on the traditional nursery rhyme Who Killed Cock Robin? and this retelling. Written for [community profile] once_upon_fic as a treat for [personal profile] evilmuffins, who said "I'd love to see this framed as a Victorian murder mystery, with the animal characters being represented as humans instead." This ended up set in the 1920s, as I'm more familiar with those stories (and owe a great debt here to Josephine Tey's Inspector Grant), but I hope satisfies the desire to see this retold in something like the form of an English Country House Murder Mystery. Thanks to my usual beta.

Inspector Rousette pulled back the sacking and surveyed the body with a keen eye. )

Rating: General
Word Count: 15340 words
Summary: As Dutch tries to pick up the pieces after the coup on Qresh and the destruction of Westerly, Khlyen makes her an offer she can't refuse. But that doesn't mean she has to play by his rules.
Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Temple Street Productions/Bell Media/Universal Cable Productions/Space/SyFy series Killjoys. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes:Written for [personal profile] spook_me and the creature prompt "disease", with one of my picture prompts encouraging me to increase the body horror aspect. The title is a partial (mis)quote of the Biblical text: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for helping me iron out the plot and for the beta.

Dutch pushed through the curtain into the rear of Bellus's office, Johnny at her heels. )

Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Temple Street Productions/Bell Media/Universal Cable Productions/Space/SyFy series Killjoys. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes:My take on Dutch and Johnny's first meeting, based on the various hints dropped throughout season 1. Strong chance of it becoming non-canon-compliant when we get the next canon snippet about their meeting. Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for the beta.

She's the prettiest ship Johnny's ever seen. )

Title: His Sister's Legacy
Fandom: Farscape
Rating: Adult
Word Count: 65,305 words

Summary: A "mundane AU" inspired by the "Unconventional Courtship" challenge.

Inheriting half of his late sister’s company means John Crichton is now Aeryn Sun’s business partner – to their mutual dismay!

Working together to keep Moya Enterprises out of the hands of a rival corporation run by Herr Skorpinski, they are forced to confront their growing attraction. Then John discovers that Aeryn promised his sister that she’d do anything—anything at all—to keep the company hers—and that there's a lot else she hasn't told him.

John doesn’t want a relationship based on cold-hearted calculation or half-truths. But can he trust that Aeryn's feelings for him are real?

Disclaimer: This story is a transformative work based on the Jim Henson Company/Nine Network/Hallmark Entertainment/A&E series Farscape. It was written for entertainment only; the author does not profit from it.
Author's Notes: The story is set during the same timeframe as canon i.e. it begins in 1999. However, to allow for the backstories I've developed for John and Aeryn in this alternate universe, both have been aged up by about ten years from their ages in canon and are now both around 40. Thanks to [personal profile] scribblesinink for the cheerleading, brainstorming and beta services.
