Title: Syzygy
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Simm!Master/Ten; Harry Saxon/John Smith
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 9,538
Warnings: some language; mental illness; narrational instability
Prompt: À la BTVS "Normal Again," either the Doctor is having hallucinations that he is actually a normal human in a mental hospital, whose husband dearly wants him to get better, or he actually is a human in a mental hospital and the whole damned Whoniverse is the product of a troubled mind. (at the [livejournal.com profile] best_enemies anon meme)
Summary: Worlds cross, and lives twine, and the ground gives way. Oh, yeah, and there's a stampede and stuff.
Author's Note: Oh, dear, the note was long enough for a cut. )

The quaver to the voice is unfamiliar, but the tones he would know anywhere – on any backwards planet; at any cold, forgotten corner of the universe; he would hear it spilling down any cornucopia of stars spread out above him, and he would start running. )

Title: One's Enough
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Jack/Ten
Rating: (light) R
Word Count: 7,995
Warnings: occasional language; sexytimes; Tierfal will wind you up and wind you up and let you down; spoilers through DW 4.1
Summary: “Is it some kind of fine print in the Time Lord rule-book?” Jack asks. “‘Do not sleep with anomalies, or your head will explode’?”
Author's Note: So I started this fic in… April. And poked it a bit in August, and then finally powered through the last few thousand words this December. You all saw this coming from miles away, but thanks to [livejournal.com profile] eltea for teaching me why this pairing is so awesome and confirming for me that this fic was un-sucky enough to post. XD

The Doctor stands back—but not too far back; there aren’t as many levers and things to grab onto if you move too far—and watches Time course through his modest little machine. )

Title: Semi-Regular Indulgences
Rating: PG
Word Count: 6,465
Warnings: occasional language; occasional angstbuckets; Nick doesn't know what "PC" means
Prompts: 1. mistletoe set-up; 6. a kiss in the snow; 16. family reunion; 22. visible breath; 38. stranded somewhere unusual by a snowstorm
Summary: Nick bribes Theo to drive him up to Tahoe for a family get-together. This is the worst decision of Theo's life, with the possible exception of befriending Nick in the first place.
Author's Note: This was going to be my Baubles to It piece… until it became a monster. D: Angst!background you may like to know: Theo is black, and his adoptive parents are white; Nick's father left when he was very young, and he lives exclusively with his mother. Voilà, now you can go watch the angst play out. XD

'Three-eighty, please.' )

Title: Caterpillars (and Butterflies)
Fandom: Honeydew Syndrome
Pairing: Josh/Metis
Rating: G
Word Count: 408
Warnings: unabashed schmaltz; Josh cannot make a metaphor to save his life
Summary: Josh is trying to do his homework, the operative word being "trying."
Author's Note: The final giftfic for [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium. (And everyone's like THANK GOD THE FICSPAM IS OVER!", not knowing I have a crap-ton more. XD)

Josh stares at the page, blinking gritty eyes, and the letters start to blend into a caterpillar of confusion. )

Title: A Stray Javelin
Fandom: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Character: Jack
Rating: PG
Word Count: 892
Warnings: spoilers through DWS3/TWS1
Summary: Fell off a cliff, trampled by horses, World War I, World War II, poison, starvation… stray javelin… - Jack Harkness, "Utopia"
Author's Note: Another gift for [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium via [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions. Confession: I totally wrote this at work.

Jack particularly hates 1930. )

Title: When in Wales
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Rating: PG
Word Count: 222
Warnings: sketchhhh
Summary: Jack and Ianto celebrate a Welsh holiday.
Author's Note: This was one of the pieces written for [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium as part of the [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions gift exchange. ^^

There is a characteristically long, meaningful pause as Jack clambers up out of his hatch into the proper Hub. )

Title: Instant
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Remus, Sirius, James, Peter
Rating: PG
Word Count: 550
Warnings: drug reference
Prompt: freakin' Ramen, yo
Summary: “That is the most un-instant process I have ever heard of,” Sirius said.
Author's Note: Dear [livejournal.com profile] eltea: I love you and the fact that you always make Ramen for me while I sit at your kitchen table like a bum. Dear Harry Potter fans: I hope you love [livejournal.com profile] eltea for accidentally convincing me to write this. (btw, my head!canon is that both Remus and Peter are half-bloods. JSYK, KIDS.)

‘I don’t get it,’ Sirius said. )

Title: Ironic
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2600
Warnings: views expressed by characters are not my own: no offense intended to Wal-Mart shoppers, inhabitants of the Midwest, inhabitants of the South, hipsters (especially since apparently I am one for ordering a specialty drink at Starbucks), and anyone else I insulted
Prompts: 1. mistletoe set-up; 6. a kiss in the snow; 16. family reunion; 22. visible breath; 38. stranded somewhere unusual by a snowstorm for Baubles to It at [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions
Summary: “We’ll just keep going until the money runs out.”
Author's Note: Two weeks ago, I had dinner with my step-mom, and her BFF who lives in the city met up with us afterward.  The two of them spent an hour trying to convince me to buy a plane ticket and abandon my dissatisfactory life.  As is probably evident from the following three thousand words of nothing… well. Thanks a million to [livejournal.com profile] eltea for excellent editing suggestions, as always. ♥

Apparently, when people said ‘Life has a cruel sense of humor, what they actually meant was ‘If you don’t play by rules no one will tell you, you’ll get snowed in at a Wal-Mart someday.’ )

Title: Seeping
Rating: PG
Word Count: 650
Warnings: tone; inexplicable "Titanic" references
Prompt: snow-covered palm trees at [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions
Summary: The world has frozen. Theo's just getting warmed up.
Author's Note: I don't know why I saw the picture, thought "SNOW APOCALYPSE!", and then thought, "…WITH NICK AND THEO!" I am not responsible for this thing in my head that vaguely resembles a brain.

‘I give up,’ Nick said. )

Title: A Slightly Drunk Matt's Guide to Mello (and Other Holiday Activities)
Fandom: Death Note
Pairing: Matt/Mello
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,079
Warnings: language; Matt; various controlled substances
Summary: In which Mello gets analyzed, Starbucks gets made fun of, candy gets eaten, and Matt gets wasted more than once.
Author's Note: Apparently you never quite leave Death Note. XD Besides, everybody needs more CHRISTMAS FIC. Or post-Christmas fic. You know what? I'm going to shut the hell up. XD

‘You’ve got to be fucking kidding me!’ Mello bellows. )

Title: Sanctuary
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Simm!Master/Ten
Rating: PG
Word Count: 550
Warnings: rather more-than-PG language
Summary: In a Russian café, the Master reflects on things that are and always have been, which is better than thinking about the likelihood of him getting frostbite.
Author's Note: Uh… this is kind of old, too. I swear I'm getting close to caught up. Or. Something. …yeah, it's old enough that I don't remember what prompted me to write it. I have excuses, but they're not any good.

The Master is in Saint Petersburg. )

Title: A Worthy Endeavor
Rating: G
Word Count: 120
Warnings: sibling abuse
Prompt: "snowman" at [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions
Summary: Chris and Parker bring a little wonder back into the world.
Author's Note: I have no idea who they are or where they came from; I just randomly came up with this last night while I was on cocaine trying to get to sleep. XD I sincerely apologize to everyone who feels spammed; I wanted to post this quickly while I had time. ♥

Chris's brother Evan is six. )

Title: Give and Take
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Eight, Nine, Rose
Rating: PG
Word Count: 905
Warnings: referential violence; tactful gore; spoilers through new!Who Series 1
Summary: It’s supposed to be the end of everything, because then he won’t have to figure out what happens next.
Author's Note: I'm going to make a confession: I haven't actually met Eight. But the plot bunny was so rabid that I wrote him anyway. Mea culpa. It was meant to be more about the end than the lead-in, and then… it wasn't.

He's shaking, not with the fear, not with the cold. )

Title: Things Theo Doesn't Know
Rating: G
Word Count: 130
Warnings: see first line
Prompt: "frosty" at [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions
Summary: Clearly, Nick is the best best friend ever.
Author's Note: Written this morning while "working," posted in a hurry at lunch... hello, my life. XD You are free to interpret this as Nick being (a) slashy, (b) sadistic, or (c) both.

Nick is a terrible person. )

Title: The Final Straw
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Simm!Master/Ten
Rating: PG
Word Count: 640
Warnings: relatively mild sketchiness
Summary: There is a certain threshold of Time Lord dignity that must be preserved.
Author's Note: This ficlet… developed from a conversation [livejournal.com profile] eltea and I were having over gelato while sitting in the Piazza San Marco, where I then developed the basic outline. Although I don't think I actually wrote it out until we were in France. I forget. :( ANYWAY, I think this is actually the last of the trip!fic from June, and hopefully it'll do a little to balance out the various angstbuckets that are being edited right now. XD

When the Doctor says ‘Right, breaking and entering,’ and pulls a crowbar out of his trouser pocket, that is the final straw. )

Title: Bumper's Last Stand
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Master/Ten
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,233
Warnings: mild sexytimes; yet ANOTHER S3 Master-as-a-bad-companion AU
Summary: Staring at the lights makes his head hurt – but then, most things do, the Doctor included. The Doctor most of all.
Author's Note: This is the sister fic of To Dive Into the Fire, because apparently I needed to explore the same ideas again, revolving around candy instead of literature. Blame the Lyceum Theatre for selling Jelly Babies at intermission, because it was the first time [livejournal.com profile] eltea and I had them, and this wasn't long to follow. And thank [livejournal.com profile] eltea for asking me to read parts of it aloud to her as I wrote them, as that's why I actually finished it. XD

The Master bites the head off of a pink Jelly Baby. Viciously. Even though the pink ones are his favorites. )

[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
Title: To Dive Into the Fire
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Master/Ten
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,585
Warnings: the Master is sketchy and sex-starved; mild smut; some language; Shakespeare; shameless pop culture references; another S3 Master-as-a-really-bad-companion AU
Summary: In which the Doctor is oblivious and boring and depressed, so the Master takes matters into his own hands.
Author's Note: This fic was begun in a terminal at Mineta San Jose International Airport, continued on a twelve-hour flight to Heathrow, and finished in [livejournal.com profile] eltea's room in Oxford, which doesn't much matter to you but does to me. XD It wouldn't exist without the aforementioned not-so-evil super-genius ([livejournal.com profile] eltea), because she's the one who figures all of this stuff out and then explains it to me. This fic also has a sister fic, which is called Bumper's Last Stand, and which discusses very similar themes but has Jelly Babies as its central trope, rather than The Tempest. It frightens me how well that dichotomy sums me up. XD

Subtlety and meaningful gazes and two-heartsfelt sighs were all good and well, but the Master had the approximate attention span of a gnat crossed with a goldfish, so after a day of completely misinterpreted hints, he simply spread himself provocatively on the Doctor’s bed and settled down to wait. )

Title: The Puppet Show
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: (lightly) Jack/Ten
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,857
Warnings: spoilers through DW S3 and TW S1 (though I have no idea when this would be canonically set); scary material; mild language
Prompt: "fear" on [livejournal.com profile] wintercompanion (which has the best challenge prompts ever)
Summary: Jack has a lovely time exploring a haunted house. Except not.
Author's Note: This was written in just over forty-eight hours, whilst an insane amount of other stuff was also going on, so that I could post it before midnight on Halloween. Someday I want to edit it properly and give it something that remotely resembles internal logic… That day is not today. XD A billion thank yous to [livejournal.com profile] eltea, of course – for getting me into the ship, for the last-second beta when we were both exhausted, and for writing horror so well that even I picked up a couple things.

When Jack wakes up on the cold floor of the haunted house, the first thing he thinks of is the Doctor. )

Title: Like Old Times
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Simm!Master/Ten, Koschei/Theta
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 21,300
Warnings: language, snark, mild violence, sexual situations, spoilers through DW S4
Summary: The Master breaks things in the TARDIS until the Doctor almost goes insane, then they end up in the Vivarium, and then all hell breaks loose. The Doctor is not liking any of this – and while he's at it, the dream-flashback-things really, really need to stop.
Author's Note: Oh, yes, I do.


[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
Title: Listing
Rating: G
Word Count: 935
Warnings: a bizarre downward spiral
Prompt: Write a kiss (at least 100 words long) without using the word 'lips' at [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions
Summary: Things go wrong.
Author's Note: I really can't explain why I saw the prompt yesterday, thought "Hey, I'm feelin' Nick and Theo!", and then produced… this… thing. It's kind of personal in strange ways. I'm just going to stop thinking about it before I hurt myself. XD Eat your hearts out, slash fans…? (They're slashy in their original canon, you know. Or you probably don't, since virtually no one's read it.)

It's an accident. )
