It's time for the 2016 Roll Call post. Did a fraction of what I used to in the days of old, but whatever - that 85K one totally makes up for it, right? Also only got one bingo over at [community profile] hc_bingo since there is no way I'm finishing one that answers five separate prompts in time.

So, grouping these by fandom, as one does apparently...

Lucifer 1 fic )

Marvel 10 fics )

Merlin 1 fic )

Stargate: Atlantis 1 fic )

Stranger Things 1 fic )


Not too bad.

Now to getting around to finishing that one and posting the one that's pretty much been done for ages but I totally forgot to post.

A) Links to AO3, if they exist, should be found by clicking any of these. I haven't finished uploading this year's fics, let alone the past few years.

B) I was in a huge writing slump for the first part of the year due to work and stress and such, with the majority of the fics written this year being written in the last half and for Hurt/Comfort bingo.

C) You can also pretty much tell when I fell in love with The Avengers over pretty much anything else.

Links to all stories, separated by fandoms:
Avengers )

Crossovers )

Fringe )

Highlander )

Merlin )

Old Kingdom )

Supernatural )

28 total - far, far less than in years past.

Whoo to the hoo? Got a border bingo in before the cut off. I also got more than a single fic qualifying as an "extra" due to the length. You can check out all the rules and scoring and such, as well as everyone else's bingos over at [community profile] hc_bingo/[livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo.

Below is an index of the stories as well as a copy of the original card. I'd just like to state for the record that coding this all was an adventure. For realz.

Fandoms: Avengers, Highlander, Merlin
Prompts: comfort food/item, forced to rely on enemy/rival, hunger/starvation, loss of job/income, imprisonment, whipping/flogging, interrogation, cursed, panic attacks, plane crash, extortion, mutation, hallucinations, phobias, surgery, body guards

Fills below the cut )

If anyone is interested in the card itself, here it is below the cut.

Spoilers: The Crystal Cave, Arthurian Myths
Warnings: Discussion of Character Death
Synopsis: All will be clear, just not quite yet.
Author's Notes: For the "hallucinations" square at [community profile] hc_bingo. I usually despise anything to do with character death, but ended up going in that direction with this one as it is what came to mind the strongest with this prompt.

A little backstory first:
My loving partner [personal profile] wolfie74 recently bought some fish. Amongst them were three guppies who bonded and play with each other constantly. They are all three supposedly male and all three try to do more than play, which led to inappropriate comments, which led to her admitting her and Youngest named the three Arthur, Merlin, and Gwaine, which led to comments on Twitter regarding genderbending, mpreg, animal transformation, and LARP, which led to [personal profile] emeraldteal joining in the fun. Er, this is what happened. Pretty much what it says on the label, sans the "LARP" bit.

Yes, this is what happens when I have been far too stressed from work to write for far too long. Sorry.

Title: Transformative
Genre: Crack, Slash
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: PG-13
Length: 1,600 words
Spoilers: Roughly Series 4 of Merlin, and possibly a tiny bit of the animated Sword in the Stone movie. *wince*
Warnings: Bad taste? Genderbending animal transformation fic with a hint of mpreg?
Synopsis: There are myths, there are legends, and there are tales that go down in the tomes of history. This is most decidedly none of those.
Author’s Notes: I am not sure who I wish to blame more, emeraldteal for encouraging me, or my loving partner and son for deciding to name the guppies Merlin, Arthur, and Gwaine, and then making commentary on the Merlin fish looking pregnant.
Disclaimer: Apologies to Disney and BBC. I do not own these characters and am making no profit from this.

Title: Important
Genre: Modern AU, Slash (Arthur/Merlin)
Rating: R
Length: ~8,250 words
Warnings: Violence, injury, aftermath thereof
Synopsis: Arthur is the son and heir of Pendragon Enterprises and to call him rich and powerful would be an understatement. However, when his boyfriend Merlin is kidnapped, he learns there are things in life far more important than simple cash.
Author’s Notes: I started this nearly a year ago for a [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin prompt I came across and have long since lost. Hopefully it either remains close enough to the original prompt for the prompter to recognise it, or can stand on its own as it is.

Rating: PG-13
Length: ~1,900 words
Spoilers: Through Series 4 to be safe, though set in the slight future.

So I actually wrote this back in early December and just recently found it again. I looked through my posts, but it appears it was never posted. It's a little on the emo side given the subject of loss but, then again, reading through my posts from December, that seemed to be the topic of the month, so there you go.

Title: Loss
Genre: Gen
Rating: PG
Length: 500 words (five drabbles)
Spoilers: Through the beginning of Series 4
Synopsis: Five times Merlin experienced loss.
Author’s Notes: A bit melancholy/angsty.

Title: Five Times Merlin Crossed
Genre: Gen, Crossover
Fandoms: Merlin, Old Kingdom, Sherlock Holmes, Leverage, Alphas, Doctor Who
Rating: PG-13 for violence and implied character death
Length: ~3060 words
Spoilers: End of Abhorsen series, general for all other series, 11th Doctor, Arthurian mythology
Synopsis: Five times Merlin has crossed the boundary to death.
Author’s Notes: I love the immortality aspect of the Arthurian myths and could not resist playing with it again. This is also a shameless excuse to cross some of my favourite fandoms (even though I did not manage to get Fringe or Highlander in here this time around).

Yeah, I can already tell you I am not going to top the past few years’ of 70-something. The combo of the move, the shoulder, the sick, and the stress from not knowing if I was still going to be employed (hint: I am) took its toll.

So, without further ado...

Merlin )

Sherlock (BBC) )

Fringe )

Stargate: Atlantis )

Highlander )

In Plain Sight )

Yuletide – not actually listed )

It looks like 41 this year (counting the crossovers only once). Still have the [livejournal.com profile] merlinreversebang one to finish and post, and have a couple other ones pending, but there is no way they will be done in the next six hours, so that’s it for 2011!

Title: Paint the Skies Blue
Genre: AU (Modern), Angst, Arthur/Merlin Slash
Rating: PG-13
Length: ~3,900 words
Warnings: Serious illness/injury, reference to possible drug use
Synopsis: Merlin is painter with a secret. Arthur would prefer if the secret did not kill him.
Author’s Notes: Was in the mood to write some angst. The lovely [livejournal.com profile] threnodyjones was in the mood to ask if I wanted some purple with my prose. We were both in the mood to snark about priorities.

Not sure how this came to be as Thanksgiving is so not my holiday of choice, but here you go anyway. (And yes, I know the whole British fandom/US celebration thing seems weird, but it's less about the day and more about the thanking.)

Title: Thankful
Genre: Modern AU/Reincarnation, Arthur/Merlin
Rating: PG-13
Length: ~625 words
Spoilers: Legends only
Synopsis: There are many things to be thankful for.
Author’s Notes: Smarmy fluff. Yes, there is a reference to a US holiday, but it does make sense, I swear.
