Title: Can You Hear Me (When I'm Calling Out to You)
Summary: In the days following the big battle with the Chiatauri Steve pays a visit to the Avengers tower which is still under construction. He intends to apologize to Tony for their earlier argument on the helicarrier. Instead, he discovers that Tony didn't come out of the battle as unscathed as he had at first let on…
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 2,958
Warnings: None.
Disclaimer: *hides under a rock in case Marvel tries to find her*
Neurotic Author's Note #1: So a couple of months ago the spectacular [livejournal.com profile] dante_s_hell won a fic from me in a charity auction. She requested some Tony-centric h/c with Steve in the caregiver role, preferably in the aftermath of the climactic battle in the movie. So that's pretty much what this is. Thank you, my lovely, for waiting so patiently for me! I hope you like it. :)
Neurotic Author's Note #2: I owe a huge debt of gratitude to [livejournal.com profile] peppervl, who must have worn down her fingertips to the very bone at her keyboard, holding my hand and commiserating and making me write and helping me with the premise of the story and working out kinks and figuring out the end (endings are HARD, yo!) and basically being a rock star. Without her, there would be no story. Thank you!
Neurotic Author's Note #3: This isn't nearly as intense h/c as my usual stuff. It's actually kind of fluffy. Mostly it allowed me to meander around in Steve's thoughts and poke at his brain for a while, and let him see Tony in a new light. I expect that if you tilt your head and squint, you can probably see this as pre-slash, but it's pretty much gen.
Neurotic Author's Note #4: The title is shamelessly cribbed from Great Big Sea lyrics.




Can You Hear Me (When I'm Calling Out to You) )
ratherastory: ([Rome] Ahem)
Hi guys!

So in an attempt to help out fellow fangirl [livejournal.com profile] mischief5, who is not known to me personally but is a big part of fandom, I am offering up a fic for auction (as I am currently suffering from a lot of month at the end of my money lately).

If you'd be interested in one of my stories and want to contribute to the fund to getting her a new computer to replace the one that's on its last legs, then you can find my offer here. The auction starts Monday, July 16th and ends Friday, July 20th.

There's also a handy PayPal button in that entry if you're not interested in bidding but would like to pitch in a few dollars anyway. Or, of course, if you want to offer up fic/something else yourself, you can comment there and pimp out your link as I am doing here. If [livejournal.com profile] mischief5 is on your flist, though, please filter your post, as this is meant to be a surprise. :)

Happy trails!

Title: Show Yourself
Summary: Ferret 'verse. When the Five-0 crew are trapped, Danny is forced to reveal his secret in order to get them out of their predicament.
Characters: Danny, Steve, Chin, Kono
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 2,917
Disclaimer: All of it still belongs to CBS, except for the bit where Danny's a ferret.
Warnings: Mild violence
Neurotic Author's Note #1: This was written as a pinch-hit for a pinch-hit for an unspecified charity thing for [livejournal.com profile] zortified, who had the misfortune of never actually getting a completed charity fic in the past. The request was for a fic in which Danny was forced to reveal his true nature to the rest of the team.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: Um, you may notice a distinct lack of plot, here. To which I reply: plot? Who needs a plot? Look, Danny is a ferret! *cough*

Title: Sunshine After Rain
Summary: Steve and Gracie have to spend the night alone in his house when Danny gets stranded at the office during a tropical storm.
Characters: Steve, Grace, with a side-order of Danny
Rating: G
Wordcount: 5,151
Disclaimer: Nothing is mine, no ownership implied. Sue if you want to, but all you'll get out of that is a bunch of IKEA furniture, an old laptop and three overly-clingy cats.
Warnings: Um, this is kind of schmoopy.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: This is a fic for [livejournal.com profile] casspeach, who won it a MILLION YEARS AGO in [livejournal.com profile] fandom_flood_ap. I feel like apologizing for how late this is is laughable at this point. I am embarrassingly late, but I did get it written!
Neurotic Author's Note #2: Dear [livejournal.com profile] casspeach, I have no idea if this is even remotely close to what you wanted. I know we discussed it a little bit and you wanted Steve coaching someone through administering first aid in the field, but this is only sort of like your prompt. Um. *shifty* It's schmoopier than I intended, and instead of being Danny & Steve or Danny/Steve it ended up being Gracie & Steve with Danny as a bonus. IDK.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: And now part of me really, really wants the show to devote a whole episode to nothing but Steve and Gracie. /o\

ratherastory: (Podfic)
So, a million years ago the very generous and extraordinarily patient [livejournal.com profile] starrylizard won a podfic in the [livejournal.com profile] fandom_flood_ap auction. Now, at long last, the podfic is complete in three chapters.

It's the first instalment of [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic's lovely wing!verse, which I highly recommend you read in its entirety, because it's just great. It's also one of the few gen wing!fics out there, I believe. Well worth your time. :)

Without further ado, have some links.

Title: Forgetting to Fall
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Dean was expecting a struggle, but Sam just lays stiff, wings fanned out behind him. He’s dry-eyed and his mouth is a firm little line.

“You’re ours,” Dean says into the skin on his temple. “Nothing is going to change that.”

Title: Learning to Fly
Summary: Dean looks up and around and Sam is crouched beside him. Sam has lost his jacket, his t-shirt is in shreds and there are large, white wings arcing out of his back.

“Oh… hey,” Dean says and then promptly faints.

Summary: But, here's the critical thing. If you find yourself dealing with an unexpected backstory, and a preponderance of exposition, then the sequel rules do not apply. Because you are not dealing with a sequel, you are dealing with the concluding chapter of a trilogy. – Scream 3

Title: One Saved Message
Summary: After a hunting accident puts Sam out of commission for a couple of days, Dean decides to surprise his brother with a new phone, since his old one is toast. Even better is when he finds that he’s been able to save all of Sam’s old information and restore it to his cell. That’s when he discovers an old voicemail that Sam has kept saved for the last two and a half years… Charity fic for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan. [livejournal.com profile] sinka won a fic from me and requested some Voicemail fix-it fic, and that is what I have attempted here. Spoilers for all aired episodes up to 6.19.
Characters: Dean, Sam
Rating: PG-13 for the occasional swearword
Wordcount: ~6,500
Disclaimer: If they were mine, let’s just say the show would look a leeetle bit different than it does now, yes?
Warnings: Swearing, whump, the usual and not much more.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: Unbeta’d because I’m really late with this and didn’t want to make poor [livejournal.com profile] sinka wait any longer than she already has, but I went over it a bunch of times so I think it should pass muster.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: [livejournal.com profile] sinka, I know you wanted more psychological trauma than physical, but apparently I can't resist the lure of beating a little on Sammy in the process. Sorry. *hangs head*
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Also, voicemail fix-it is harder to write than amulet fix-it. Who knew?

Hola folks!

This is a reminder that the charity auctions are drawing to a close in the next little while. My threads are still up and running, so feel free to check them out. There are also lots of other talented folks offering up work, so you can browse the other threads too in case there's something there that catches your eye. :)

Okay, folks. I'm auctioning off two stories again. One is for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_flood_ap, for Australia (yes, crap is still happening there too), and one is for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan.

Click on the banners to go to my particular threads. You can start bidding now, as I think it's the 14th of March as far as the communities are concerned, as opposed to the last time I posted. ;)

So [livejournal.com profile] fandom_flood_ap is at it again, and this time I am offering one story (2,000 words minimum), to help raise money for the victims of the floods (and other floods, and more flooding, and further natural disasters, and can we all say "Oy, vey!").

Click on the 'roos for my thread. :)

Bidding starts on March 14th!
