Fic spam

I always forget to post here nowadays, so I thought I should at least link to some of the stuff I've written recently (or not so recently--I'm a bit pressed at the moment, so stories are scarce on the ground). So here! In case you're interested, have some stuff:

Clean Slate
Fandom: Skyfall
Genre/Pairing: Character Study, Gen
Word Count: 380
Rating: PG
Spoilers: For the whole film.
Summary: He shakes Mallory's hand and he feels...purged.

(I may or may not be working on a sequel to that one, but who knows when the hell that'll happen.)

Clint Barton and the Adventures of This, That, and the Whatsit
Fandom: Avengers
Genre/Pairing: Fun with robots!, Gen
Word Count: 3,125
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None
Summary: In which Clint is the John Connor of New York. Until he isn't.

(That one takes places in the Reflexes universe, but works as a standalone.)

Best Kept Secret
Fandom: Avengers
Genre/Pairing: Character Study/Silliness/Frondship, Steve/Tony, Tony & Natasha
Word Count: 11,404
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None
Summary: In which there is a secret friendship, and Tony can’t deal with feelings, so Natasha has to do it for him. These two features may or may not be related.

That's it! I also have a million WIPs sitting around and I'm touching none of them because dear god, thesis.

The Art of Order

Title: The Art of Order
Pairing: Pepper Potts/Phil Coulson, background Bucky/Tony/Steve
Rating: PG
Word Count: 18,766 (HOW DID THIS HAPPEN)
Summary: The alternate title to this story is, ‘How Pepper Got Her Groove Back (Not That She Ever Lost It To Begin With): A Story in Cocktails’: In which Pepper rules Stark Industries with an iron first in between drink breaks, there is way higher than Level Seven clearance at SHIELD but Phil trusts her with a lot more than that, and the Avengers really have no idea how much work has to be done to keep them afloat when it doesn’t directly involve explosions.

Notes: This story starts at the beginning of Chapter 3 of Reflexes, but you don’t really have to be familiar with that to get this story. All you need to know is that Tony/Bucky is happening in the background, and is building to Tony/Bucky/Steve. Also, there’s still some Avenging going on.

Also, I envision Ian as looking like Ben Whishaw because that trailer for Skyfall was badass. And the Alban Berg Quartet are real, and probably way too awesome to just randomly open their rehearsals to concert-goers, but their renditions of the Beethoven string quartets are quite good.

Reflexes, Chapter One

Title: Reflexes
Genre/Pairing: Action/Adventure/Romance, Tony Stark/Bucky Barnes, eventually Tony/Bucky/Steve Rogers
Word Count: ~6,500, this part
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None, this was written pre-Avengers knowledge. Given that, it's also quite AU.
Warnings: This is mainly movieverse, as that's what I'm most familiar with; however, I have picked up some stuff from Marvel-616 as I've read more, so some of that trickles in. 
Summary:  Bucky meets the team and manages to survive the experience, Tony is his usual dysfunctional self, and Steve pouts with deadly force. Also, there is some avenging going on. And tech porn.

Author Note: This is the second part of the Armed and Dangerous 'verse, and as such follows directly after Impulse, so if you haven't read that yet, do so before starting this one. This is a work in progress, though hopefully not for much longer!

So I've been terrible about cross-posting here, and will probably continue to be so just because the character limit on lj is prohibitive and I hate re-doing all my formatting, but given the current exodus from ff.net that's crashing AO3 every two minutes, I figure it might be good to post some recent stuff on here as well. So, we're starting with the Armed and Dangerous 'Verse! 

Title: Impulse
Genre/Pairing: Banter, Tony Stark/Bucky Barnes
Word Count: ~3,600
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None, this was written pre-Avengers knowledge. Given that, it's also quite AU.
Warnings: This is mainly movieverse, as that's what I'm most familiar with; however, I have picked up some stuff from Marvel-616 as I've read more, so some of that trickles in. 
Summary: Bucky is found by SHIELD. Tony wants a project. They meet somewhere in the middle.

Comment fic!

I just pulled an all-nighter to get my sleep schedule back on track, and to help me survive, I churned out a bunch of comment fic on Tumblr. Huzzah! Now if I can stay awake through the rest of the day, I'll be golden. 

In any case, it's almost all Avengers related, with some Steve/Tony, and some Steve/Tony/Bucky, and a lot of Tonyfeels, so if you're interested, you can find all of it here.

When they finally come to destroy the earth (they'll have to go through you first)

Fandom: Marvel movies, Nolan!Batman, Avengers, Justice League-ish
Rating: PG for language
Word Count: 5,424
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, barely
Summary: In which Tony Stark went to boarding school with Bruce Wayne, and the road to becoming a superhero is not smooth.

Notes: This plays extremely fast and loose with chronology, canon, whatever. There are elements of Batman Begins, Dark Knight, and the Iron Man movies, but also has stuff from the comics and then randomly converges at some amalgam of the Avengers movie and the Justice League I-have-no-idea-what. There is a real sequence of events that makes sense—I made a timeline!—but it’s pretty extravagantly not accurate to any particular canon, and time between major events is dilated/contracted as needed to get said events to line up in a meaningful and fairly reasonable way. I claim artistic license?

Read it at AO3.

User Interface

I said on Tumblr that I was going to write ALL THE TONY/STEVE FEELS, and lo. Christ, I haven't been like this since Inception.

Title: User Interface (x-posted to AO3 here)
Genre/Pairing: Tony/Steve
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2,400
Warnings: None.
Disclaimer: Nothing here belongs to me, I am merely playing in someone else’s sandbox.
Summary: Steve dares to stick his head into the workshop on a Tuesday which had so far been filled only with paperwork, and as soon as he actually comprehends what he's seeing, he kind of just wants to forget the filing and the G-33 forms and just stay down there forever.

Stockholm Syndrome and Other Drugs

Title: Stockholm Syndrome and Other Drugs (x-posted to AO3 here)
Genre/Pairing: Silliness, passing reference to Clint/Coulson, Tony/Steve
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2,500
Warnings: None.
Disclaimer: Nothing here belongs to me, I am merely playing in someone else’s sandbox.
Summary: In which Coulson is his frighteningly competent self, but this time, the Avengers notice.

A/N: From a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] avengerkink: "Everyone feels sorry for Coulson because they can't even imagine how terrible it must be for him, having to essentially babysit a bunch of superheroes. And it is terrible. Except when it isn't....I want a story where the team doesn't make Coulson's life hell."

Deep Waters

Speaking of the Avengers taking over my life...

Title: Deep Waters (Also posted at AO3)
Author: AlchemyAlice
Genre/Pairing: h/c Steve/Tony, movieverse!Marvel
Word Count: ~6,000
Warnings: Mentions of torture, portrayal of PTSD
Summary: His power's running low, the arc reactor flickering. Cold, rancid sewer water is rushing into the fissure at his torn up shoulder, filling up the gaps, rising along his neck in frigid fingers. He's been like this before.

A/N: For a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] capkink: "I'd love to see a story dealing with Tony's trauma from the whole kidnapping/torture thing. Maybe Tony ends up in the water during combat and has waterboarding flashbacks, or a sudden flash of claustrophobia. Cue Steve finding out about it all."

Man, I need a Tony Stark icon.

Why hello there, lj.

Long time, no see.

I am, in fact, alive. And term has begun again! I am excited because the summer was kind of desolate and boring and I need structure in my life.

And I, uh, have a request to make: I need help in finishing this thing that I've owed [livejournal.com profile] nightrider101 since the beginning of this year, because dammit I don't know how to go on, and what's more, my spn muse has completely run dry. So to any of you who are still avid fans and can instill me with your enthusiasm, I would appreciate anything from a cheerleader to a beta reader. It's about wings and profound bonds and also some problematic rips in reality that happen after the apocalypse-that-wasn't. I have a little over 7k written out of probably 10k total, which is way more than I was planning on doing, but apparently I'm incapable of writing anything less than weirdly convoluted plotty things or something? I think I'm going to post the first half of it very soon, with the hopes that this will pressure me into finishing the rest of it in something resembling a timely manner. But seriously, I keep staring at it, willing words to appear, but they just don't. So...yeah. Help?

On the flip side, though, I have been sucked into loving the Avengers hard core. I don't really read comics all that often, but I am totally behind the films and it's making me take Wikipedia crash courses on the the canon material like woah. Seriously, this movie has already ruined me, and it hasn't even come out yet. As a result, I am utterly lost to Steve/Tony right now. It's a disease, almost as bad as Charles/Erik, except worse because whereas Charles and Erik make me want to write them into badass adventures, Steve and Tony make me want to just read utter sap about how they made up after Civil War and got married and fought crime together. Argh. Stop it you bastards I hate you. Also my personal theme song for them is now 'Teenage Dream' because Tumblr is a terrible influence on me and I am a terrible person and it makes me laugh uncontrollably. STEVE IS TOTALLY TONY'S TEENAGE DREAM, DON'T DENY. Oh god this journal must never become connected to me in real life or I will have to change names and move to a different country again.
