jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - cloud [stunned].)


wasteland
FF7 || PG-13 || Cloud, Zack || ~1,200 words
Sometimes your worst enemy is just day-to-day life. Modern!AU.


  • Lyrics come from Rise Against, "The Approaching Curve"; Plowed, "Sponge"; The Killers, "Runaways." Because they're favorites, and I can, and this is semi-pretentious self-indulgence (i.e. therapy!fic for disaffected twenty-somethings) anyway.

Cloud is so lost in his own thoughts that he doesn't realize anything is different until he finds his hand grasping the handle of a car door. )

The Boatman, Crossed by Death
Dishonored || R (violence) || The Outsider, Samuel, Corvo || ~7,500 words
"I know all the stories. I know all the beginnings, and all the endings. But it's the telling of them that changes, and Samuel knows far more than he thinks he does."

  • warnings for human sacrifice, descriptions of slavery, and the aftermath of torture

  • [livejournal.com profile] iambickilometer's belated birthday gift, woot

  • for your edification, my rambling on why I wrote the myth bits the way I did

...

"In the beginning was the Void – "

"But what made the Void?"

"Emily," Corvo murmurs at the same time Samuel says, "Beggin' your pardon, Your Majesty, but that's the kind of question best left to people more learned than I."

"Go ahead, Samuel," prompts Callista.

crossing the heartline
Dishonored || PG-13 (Low Chaos) || Corvo, the Outsider || ~840 words

He tells himself that he doesn’t kill every goddamn target because she wouldn’t have wanted him to. He reminds himself that Emily shouldn’t begin her reign on a foundation of corpses infected by something much more ruthless than plague. Truth is: it isn’t true. Not entirely.

[AO3]

In which I tried to justify Low Chaos to myself and thought, hey, let’s share.

jukeboxhound_backup: (xmen - charles cerebro.)
untitled 'carol danvers + back-from-the-dead!Steve'

MCU || PG - post-Civil War || Carol, Steve || ~480 words
For captainsmarvelandamerica, who wanted a take on the background convo between Carol and Steve on his miraculous return:

“You Army boys can’t do anything right,” she deflects, except she kind of sucks at it because her voice does that cracking thing that hasn’t happened since she stopped waking up with the taste of whiskey in the back of her throat.  )

jukeboxhound_backup: (avengers - tony knows what he has to do)
Lessons Learned at a Crucial Point in Time
MCU || PG-13 || Tony Stark, the team || ~4,860 words
Several times Tony had no one to save him but himself, and one time he did.
  • Warnings: suggested underage sexual activity, emotional manipulation
  • Written for [livejournal.com profile] dante_s_hell for the Avengers Holiday Exchange

( And Tony, he’s a smart fucking guy, he learns: your enemies teach you the best tricks, that people see what they want to see, and that if you have get stuck with someone else then at least make sure it’s another scientist or two. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (avengers - tony used to jog.)
Because apparently smoking pot is a thing I write, idk.


And You Wonder Why We Ain't Got Nothing to Say
Avengers || PG-13: drug-use || Tony+Bruce being SCIENCE BROS || 1,550 words
"You really have got a lid on it, haven't you? What's your secret? Mellow jazz? Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?"
  • Warning for movie spoilers, for Coulson having gotten better via deus ex machina, and for essentially being disjointed word-vomit. Because of reasons, mostly just that it was fun to write.
  • Title from WHY?’s “fatalist palmistry.” Summary from the actual movie script.
  • Draci = Lojban, meaning “drama.”
Also on AO3.

It figures that during the week Pepper is gone to the West Coast for some business thing, and both Tony and Bruce are missing from a formally-arranged Avengers meeting in SHIELD, it's because they're getting stoned on the floor in Tony's lab. )

Whisky Dick
SPN || PG || Sam, Dean
Postcard!fic, in which there are Scottish Winchester shenanigans.
  • the last of my actual Christmas postcards, this one for [livejournal.com profile] tir_synni 


I tell myself this is the guy in the skirt kilt. (Mostly SFW.)

Rambling. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - cloud scribbles [woo!].)
Title from Pink Floyd's, "Another Brick in the Wall."  Because it's the first thing that came to mind.

How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
FF7 || PG || gen/OT3 subtext



Epilogue. )

Yeah, totally copying [livejournal.com profile] tir_synni in posting these.  GO READ HERS.

Re: I Sense a Disturbance in the Force

FF7 || PG || Sephiroth, Zack || <90 words
  • Last Christmas' postcard fic for [livejournal.com profile] chofi .  <3



Knowing Zack forgets to check his mail if it doesn't arrive as a text message, Sephiroth just sends it to Cloud instead.

Bonus bullshittery on fonts and how Genesis is just misunderstood by ignorant plebes. )

Font used is
Hanshand.
jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - zack.)
...and that he could handle wearing heels*.  Originally an actual postcard for [livejournal.com profile] croix_souillees  for last Christmas. <3 (Ignore the canonically incorrect postcard designs and bad 'shop job, plz, I did this in like twenty minutes.)
______

FF7 || PG || Zack, Aeris, Cloud, Sephiroth (gen or OT4 subtext) || ~70 words




[livejournal.com profile] tir_synni  has posted her lovely Christmas present to me of my obscure OTP.  Go read some Bibleslash and then write me more of this pairing.

*Cloud's actually 5'7 in the original game, but he is only fifteen here, so nyah.
jukeboxhound_backup: (spn - sam rocking out of his mind.)
I know, creative title.  So, yeah, I'm rather interested in how unknowingly having the demon blood as well as external manipulation from infernal sources affected Sam's personality, his choices, etc.  I'd love to see a properly long fic playing with that.  (Hint, hint.)

New Verse, Same as the First
SPN || PG-13 (language) || Sam, Dean || 600 words || S6
“So, you’re saying demons have been fucking with us the whole time. Like, not just the blood.”

"At least I don't have herpes." )
jukeboxhound_backup: (Default)
Events and some dialogue from S1 and the end of S3, reference to S6.  Like most of these short things I do, I think it's weird, but hey.

Libra
SPN || PG-13 || Sam, Dean, gen || ~780 words
"Choose," Death says to Sam.

Sam looks up. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (spn - young and chosen sam.)
I was going through my unfinished stories and found this. It really is pretty random and builds on the same idea as a previous but unrelated fic, In principio erat verbum, but here you go. Have mercy. Title from The Gathering, "These Good People."

the aftermath (it will be black)
SPN || PG-13 - language || gen (Sam, Dean) || 972 words || set sometime after 5x14, "My Bloody Valentine"
There's no such thing as the right words to say.

"You ever wonder why a demon can't escape someone's body if the mouth is covered? Or why deals are sealed with a kiss?" )

Don't judge me, Monkey.

Everything a Ninja Knows, He Learned from Dean Winchester
SPN || PG-13 - language || gen, unless you read into it || 1,200 words || mockery of Starbucks hipsters some stereotypes
Operation: Geek Liberation is a go.

This was because he had mad skills of subterfuge honed by years of general badassery. )

X-posted to [info]sn_fic  and [info]supernaturalfic , apologies to flists.
jukeboxhound_backup: (stock - faded flower.)
Some fix-it lines for a couple of the misunderstandings in S4-S5. 

Long Distance
SPN || PG-13 - language, angst || Sam, Dean || 1,100 words || coda to 4x22, general spoilers through S6
In which Dean finds out that the Apocalypse began with a single voicemail.

Dean is reintroducing himself to Jack because he doesn't want to know what Robo-Sam is doing. )

I'm hoping to somehow find the time and inspiration to participate in the 2011 round of [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang , and here's a small bit, written some weeks ago.  This narration style is only for memory sequences and the like, not for the main story.  Promise.

years grow back
Author: Hades' Phoenix
Pairing: Technically none, though you can probably see my Wincest bias.
Rating: PG-13 for language.
Summary: For a long time that was the snapshot Sam carried of his brother.  Teen!chesters.
Note: Title from Sully Erna of Godsmack's "7 Years" for no real reason other than I happen to be listening to it.  Newberry, SC is a real town, and it really is blink-and-you-miss-it small.
Word Count: 706

It was hot in South Carolina during the summer, but then again, it was always hot in South Carolina. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (Default)
More fic revision.  Ahaha.

Reverse Psychology
(Revised)

Pairing: Unrequited Creepy Old Neighborly Lady/Duo.  Alas, if she were only fifty-three years younger.
Warnings: Scifi culture references, my utter lack of tech knowledge, slightly insensitive talk of mentally handicapped.
Summary: Most people become Preventers to maintain world peace.  Most people, except Duo.
Minor Revisions: 27 May 2010

Because Duo isn't a hyperactive idiot and I like him being smartassed.  I keep thinking it should be a prequel to In Possession, so why not.

"Following orders are fine when I get big fiery booms. Are there booms here? I see no booms." )
 
jukeboxhound_backup: (spn - wtf.)
Written on a long plane-ride.  You'll probably be able to tell.  >.>

The Battle of Evermore
Characters: Sam, Dean (gen)
Warnings: Questionable logic, so don't look too deeply at it.  Humor.  Slight angst? Spoilers up to the end of S3.
Unbetaed.  Title from the album Led Zeppelin IV.



jukeboxhound_backup: (religion - XIII.)
...I succumbed.  Goddamnit.

Satan Fell Like Lightning
Characters: Castiel, Sam, Dean
Pairing: None
Spoilers: Up to episode 5.03
Note: Mostly an exposition because I fangirl two-against-the-world, torn-apart-by-fate plots so fucking hard.  And I'm convinced that Castiel is most likely a Power, even though all my books have to say about him is that he rules over Thursday.
Unbetaed.


jukeboxhound_backup: (kh - riku drown in sorrow.)
...Because I couldn't sleep, and because I suddenly have more sympathy for the brothers.  Edward also panders to my scientific obsessions in a human way that Hojo doesn't.
Unbetaed.

Rigor Mortis
Pairing
: None; Elric kyoudai
Rating/Warnings: PG-13; mild language, angst.
