jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - cloud [stunned].)

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 world cuts deeper (when love's in my hands)
Dishonored || PG-13: classism, racism, sexism || Billie Lurk || 3,800 words
When Daud dies, Billie is heading for a ship to take her to Morley.

  • Present for ochrelock for the Dishonored Secret Santa - happy winter, hope you like it.  :D

  • High Chaos!Corvo, Low Chaos!Knife of Dunwall

  • Warnings: classism, racism, sexism, brief mention of past attempted sexual assault (not against Billie)

  • Past casual Billie/Delilah

  • Title from Tryad's "My Piano Sings (Part 4)"

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.


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

Too Daze Gone
FF7 || PG-13 (language, innuendo) || Aeris/Tifa pre-slash || 4,100 words
Aeris is a witch, a sort of go-to advisor and supplier to hunters of all types and skills that drift in and out.  It gets rather lonely after a while, though, with only a stubborn rhododendron and a few vinyls for constant company, so she's going to take any chance she can to get back on the road and get to know this Tifa better.

  • Fusion with SPN (i.e. a modern AU with monster hunting)

  • Part of the Black Magic Woman series, which includes god put a song on my palm (Aeris/Tifa, established relationship) and This Isn't Going to Wash Out (Zack/Cloud/Sephiroth, backfired spells and tentacle/wing/anthro sex, idek)

  • Originally meant to be a longer fic for the [livejournal.com profile] femmeslash_bang challenge, but the community seemed to die before the challenge was ever finished, so I'm posting part of what I had as a oneshot in an ongoing series.

( “Most people call me a witch,” Aeris tells her cheerfully, and hides her grin behind her glass when Tifa chokes a little.  “Well, minus the whole demonic soul-selling thing.  That’s just irresponsible.  Gives the rest of us a bad name.” )

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: (people - rock n roll.)
You know how people sometimes try emotional catharsis through fic?  Well, there wasn't much of a catharsis, but here you go.  I honestly no idea what the answer is to this sort of thing, whether Steve is right or Tony is, so take away your own interpretation.  Thank god for relative anonymity on the Internet ahaha.

this grey house where I come from
Avengers MCU || PG-13 || Steve/Tony, past Tiberius/Tony || 3,900 words
There was never any actual violence, nothing dramatic or traumatizing, so Tony doesn’t know why ancient history can occasionally make him feel nauseous, or why some of the most innocuous and nonthreatening things that come out of Steve’s mouth can make his breath stutter.
  • Warning for seriously dubious sexual consent, emotional manipulation, and underage sex (for both parties).
  • Totally disregarding almost all canon concerning Tiberius Stone except for his creepy ability to string Tony along without Tony ever seeing it for what it is. (While Sunset Bain and Kathy Dare would've been other options, I have Reasons Left Unexplained for going this route.)
  • Also on AO3.

“How about Coneheads. Wait, you haven’t been introduced to Saturday Night Live yet, have you?” Tony finally turns off the torch and flips up the visor. “The nineties’ episodes, thanks, those’re the good ones. Dear god, man, we’ve been neglecting your education, Coneheads is a cornerstone of subgenre culture.” )

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. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (avengers - tony the futurist.)
When in doubt with FF7, write Avengers instead.

While Everyone's Lost (The Battle Is Won)
Avengers (Earth-19999/movie-verse) || PG-13 || Steve/Tony || 6,900 words
Steve closes his eyes in 1945 and wakes up in 2012.  Well. They certainly didn't put that on the recruiting poster.
  • Warnings: talk of politics, mental illness, PTSD, the Holocaust.
  • Title from The Killers' "All These Things that I've Done."
  • Companion to The Minor Fall, the Major Lift, heavy on the 616 canon and the Smithsonian scene from Captain America: Man out of Time.

DW || AO3

He meets Tony Stark. He hadn't expected it to go so wrong, but then, he hadn't expected someone who seemed to have all the worst parts of Howard Stark and the best parts of Bucky. )

jukeboxhound_backup: (avengers - tony the futurist.)
The Minor Fall, the Major Lift
Avengers (Earth-19999/movie-verse) || PG-13 || light Steve/Tony || 4,800 words
This is how they piece it together and make it work.
  • Warnings: PTSD, past comic-canon child abuse, mention of the Holocaust, language.
  • Title from the song "Hallelujah," mostly because I've been listening to it and thought the line was appropriate.

They're not even doing anything, just acting stupid, like strangers assigned to the same dorm room who haven't quite figured out each other's quirks and tics yet. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - cloud scribbles [woo!].)
Okay, so, like, have some fic, or rather some scenes from a real-world AU fic I started but haven't finished yet.  Also Gongaga is in India because of reasons, well, specifically the Bengali region, namely because of stopthatgirl7's overanalyzing of linguistics and geography, to which [livejournal.com profile] chofi originally introduced me.  I can't find the relevant post but have all of them instead.  Title from WHY?'s song of the same name, idk.

Gnashville (snippets)
FF7 || PG-13 (language, suggestiveness) || Zack/Cloud || ~960 words
Zack's a world-class hacker, Cloud is the capable mechanic he gets to molest on a regular basis, and Sephiroth is the harried FBI agent trying to track them down before the ShinRa mob family does.

Cloud was a goddamn wizard, Zack decided. His baby was running smooth as cherry lube and purring in a sexy whisper. )

THEN THERE WERE MORE SHENANIGANS in which there was SNARK and BIKE!SEX and SEPHIROTH'S EXASPERATION but certainly nothing about being Batman.
jukeboxhound_backup: (wolf - dog alone [sad].)

the heart is the philosopher's throne
X-Men || R (sex, language, mention of canon child abuse) || Charles/Erik, Raven || 1,760 words
The thing about Charles was that he wanted too badly to fix people.
  • For this prompt (poor timing and character flaws) from the [livejournal.com profile] 1stclass_kink  meme.
  • Title from Saul Williams, "Coded Language" and pretend it isn't also the same title as my journal, I just really like this line and it actually seems appropriate here.
  • Spoilers for the First Class movie.
Guide them, teach them, make them realize their full potential or whatever, and Raven had lost count of the number of times she wanted to slap him for it. )
jukeboxhound_backup: (spn - castiel angel of the lord.)
I'm sorely tempted to write more of this.  I even have a general plot idea, which is a bad thing because I've got other WIPs looking at me with Cloud's big sad blue eyes.  For now, just a oneshot, and my first X-Men fic in five or six years.  Woo for nostalgia.

[by [livejournal.com profile] awesome ]

I Have a Holy Duty to Unzip Your Genes
X-Men || R (sex, language, crack) || Charles/Erik || 2,100 words || Good Omens fusion
“Genetics, my fine man,” Charles declares, unperturbed when Erik has to poke him back upright on his stool, “is God’s finest miracle.”
  • For this prompt + gif, made by [livejournal.com profile] awesome , on the [livejournal.com profile] 1stclass_kink  meme
  • References to X-Men comic canon, Neil Gaiman's 1602 graphic novel, Dogma, and the Bible (duh).
  • Charis, meaning “grace,” is one of the Gnostic luminaries of divine will; also, this.  It was the only angelic name beginning with ‘Char-‘ that was even vaguely relevant, although whether it's angelic or an abstract personification depends on the source material.

“I rather liked the water to wine bit, myself,” he says. “Or the healing of the centurion’s fucktoy.” )
jukeboxhound_backup: (ff7 - aeris orgy [yay sex].)
Sometimes I wonder why I keep up with the news when it just pokes a big stick at my wee anarchist soul.  I wrote some crack instead.

Cloud is a little more forthright than I normally write him, but that's when you pull the excuse of crackfic out your ass.  see what i did there  please don't hurt me

An Expert in Name-ology
FF7 || PG-13 (language, threats of bodily harm) || Zack, Sephiroth/Cloud || 1,000 words
How Zack settled on 'Spike' as Cloud's fanon nickname.
  • prompt #50: Spike, for [livejournal.com profile] 100_situations 
  • title from The Boondock Saints; mild riffing on the use of 'kitten' as anything other than a reference to baby cats
"I'm going to punch you in the face," Cloud scowled. )

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: (stock - want sex? [lust].)
Surprise for [livejournal.com profile] tir_synni , who manages the kind of daily schedule that would have me breaking down with the stress.  I don't know how she does it.  I think this is the most explicit thing I've ever written so it may be rather off and I...I don't even know, but it's in the name of friendship and her tentacle!fic and my guilty love of wing!fic, I guess?  Love you, darling.

This Isn't Going to Wash Out
FF7 || NC-17: anthro!tentacle!sex, omgwut || Sephiroth/Zack/Cloud || 3,650 words
Cloud can't decide if this the hottest or weirdest thing they've ever done.

"Um," says Zack. His smile is full of teeth. "My bad." )
jukeboxhound_backup: (spn - sam's brain can kill you.)

Hell Is Fine This Time of Year
SPN || R: language, sex || Sam/Dean || 6,000 words
Prompt: Demon!Dean talks Sam into the role of Boy King.
  • [livejournal.com profile] sammessiah "Antichristmas 2011" gift-fic for [livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws (sorry for the bit of lateness!)
  • Blame [livejournal.com profile] chofi for the holy water spritz bottle.

"I swear to God, my dying wish is 'don't go darkside' and here you're sucking blood and fucking demons." )

Not quite sure what this is except experimental, listening to guitar and blues.

Don't Nobody Know (But God)
FF7 || PG-13: complete AU || hinted Cloud/Zack, Sephiroth || 736 words
But none of ‘em see the angel by the door ‘cept the man that saw ‘imself reflected in a corpse’s eyes, an’ if that corpse were once the person Strife loved most in all this ugly world, well, ain’t no-one gonna say life’s anywhere near kind.
The bar’s dim, worn smooth as ol’ leather an’ tired souls, hot as the Devil’s breath. )

Femmeslash!  \o/  When I was reading the prompts, I saw this one and flailed about it to [livejournal.com profile] chofi .  Turned out she was the one that had submitted it, which just made it better.  Hee.  So really, this is for her (if she wants it).

Unbeta'd because of the looming deadline.

god put a song on my palm
FF7 || PG-13 - some sexuality || Tifa/Aeris || 1,850 words
Prompt: Tifa/Aeris, work-worn hands.
  • For the [livejournal.com profile] yuri_challenge , posted here; alternately, my own (new) DW.
  • Slight fusion with SPN, but you don't really need to know it to read this; pretend it's a real-life!AU.
  • The "Jesse" here is from the beginning of FF7.
There were odd calluses from the grip of a shotgun, a machete, an iron crowbar, because you never knew what a case would demand while hunting. )
