A Handful of Sand, NC-17
So, I've finally finished something. I am so proud of myself. (And if you read it on my LJ before I crossposted it here, it's been revised a bit so that it stops driving me insane).

A Quiet Tempest
This is a bit of an odd one. I used the First Folio version of the quote. Because I am that way.

But doth fuffer a Sea-change
Into fomething rich, & ftrange

Hey, guys. Just a reminder that the not-really-a-deadline is October 1 (that would be Saturday). Apologies for just now mentioning that...I'm a terrible challenge boss. Good thing this is the Challenge Without Rules and therefore it doesn't MATTER.

Just...you know. Remember that you have a prompt that you can write. If you feel like it. Or not. Whatever. :)

Title: Am I Out of It?
Rating: PG-13
Description: Lilah and Harmony meet, at a very special training seminar.
Disclaimer: Joss only WISHES he thought of this.
Written for: worldstage_fic challenge, with the quote from Dr. Faustus as the prompt. Also for nevermet ficathon, per bohemiancachet's request: Lilah/Harmony, The Simpsons, a broken cell phone, and a pink unicorn. I did a pretty weak job of including the prompts, but I hope I'll be forgiven, since I included lawyer jokes. Not very shippy.
Thanks to: married_n_mich for beta work; inlovewithnight as usual, for important observations, and bitterbyrden for the location of W&H's OTHER training facility.

This story is, of course, ridiculous.

The masterlist for the ficathon, with links to many less ridiculous stories, is here.

Drabbles: No Quiet Find
Months ago, my lovely and talented friend and somtime co-writer, lostgirlslair, wrote me a drabble ficlet based on a sonnet of my choosing. It's here. You might want to dip into it so you know what I'm talking about.

The rules we set ourselves are: 100 words per quatrain, 50 for the couplet. Now, for those of you who know me, realize just.how.very.hard. it is for me to restrain myself to 100 words.

I'm not sure if I kept all the ideas tightly segregated into their own little drabblets, as they kind of seemed to leak into other drabble, but...here goes.

Title: No Quiet Find
Series/Pairing: BtVS, G/W
Rating: PG

Author: Widget
Characters: Lee, Zarek
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be (otherwise Lee would be dressed in that towel permanently! Mmmm…towel). No money is being made.
Spoilers: episode tag to “Fragged”. Big fat spoilers for that episode.
Summary: Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall
Notes: Written for worldstage_fic multifandom fic challenge because inlovewithnight made me. She so did!

Challenge Fic: Like Birds
Couldn't decide between the two quotes, so there's a bit of each.

Hornblower, slash, HH/AK (of course)

Like Birds

The Indy was too small for love. But a prison cell just a few paces long, and fewer wide, would be room enough.

They would wait until night, of course. As the sun's heat receded and the night breeze stole between the window's bars, they would turn to one another and he would be free to let his fingers slide into Horatio's curls, to pull those beautiful lush lips against his own.

Horatio would be surprised, but not dismayed. They had been this close before, when Horatio had slipped bonelessly into his embrace, with Hunter hovering like a damned duenna. Horatio's head had rested against his face, his exhausted body relaxed in a trusting embrace. Hunter might not have noticed it; it might have meant nothing to Horatio--but Archie's whole body had tingled with the closeness."Is whispering nothing? Is leaning cheek to cheek?" Horatio trusted him. Horatio loved him.

And Hunter was gone now.

Hunter was gone, and they were alone. Better still, they were heroes, and the guards were no longer worried about los Ingleses escaping.

They could touch. They could kiss. They could sleep naked, to keep their newly-washed uniforms clean.

As though their uniforms had anything to do with it.

He was lost. He had looked into Horatio's eyes, and drunk his damned water, and somehow he had given up ownership of his soul. He would live. He had to live, as long as Horatio needed him. And if Horatio was determined to go back to prison, then there was no alternative to going with him. They would away to prison, and sing like birds in the cage. Better than staying on the Indy, in some ways. They would never, aboard ship, have the privacy to peel off shirts and breeches and touch one another. They could not stand so close, or kiss...

The cannon's BOOM! broke Archie's reverie, and his beautiful fantasy dissolved in the gun's acrid smoke. Horatio was not his lover. Horatio was a dutiful commissioned lieutenant in His Majesty's Navy, who would never think of violating Article XXIX with a subordinate.

Horatio was a man of honour, who had given his parole.

Horatio was steering them back to prison.

And there they would not sing.

First two ficlets
I suppose it's rather appropriate that I should jump the gun entirely. ::rolls eyes:: Well.

Two ficlets, both quite short.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica
Warnings: None
Quote: "These words are razors to my wounded heart." (Titus Andronicus)
320 words.
Losing Faith

Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Warnings: Questionable consent, assault-related emotional trauma
"He spake me fair, this other gave me strokes;
He promised life, this other threatened death;
He won my love, this other conquered me;
And truth to say, I yield myself to both."
(The Spanish Tragedy; Thomas Kyd)

Current Mood: okay

Coming soon!
As in, this very evening, most likely...but since people have very kindly been pimping this comm already, I thought I should have SOMETHING up to let you know that yes, more information will be here very very shortly.

The very brief outline: A challenge to write fic (any fandom you wish) based on a quote from Elizabethan theater. Lots of Shakespeare, but some other writers of the era, too. This is going to be a very non-restrictive challenge, lots of room to do your own thing (mostly because when I try to be all managerial, I get really flustered and end up screwing up).

Details soon!
