Title: By Right of Salvage
Fandoms: Heroes
Rating: PG
Genre: Sci-fi, Angst, Horror
Warnings: Character deaths. And I'll throw one on here for kidnapping, just in case.
Details: Gen. AU, Sylar being creepy, general dubiousness.
Wordcount: 770
Characters/Pairings: Sylar, Monty Petrelli.
Summary: Possession is nine-tenths of the law. This can be applied to fatherhood as easily as anything else.
Notes: More about this AU in the author's notes.

Title: Sounds of Silence
Fandoms: Heroes
Rating: PG
Genre: Sci-fi, Angst, Horror
Details: Gen. Phobias, paranoia, nightmares, emotional trauma, creepy behavior (because it's Sylar).
Wordcount: 730
Characters/Pairings: Sylar.
Summary: Sometimes it was hard for Sylar to believe he had escaped. Oneshot.
Notes: Written for[livejournal.com profile] terror_scifi's Multifandom Prompt Fest. Title shamelessly ripped from Simon & Garfunkle.

What if I wake up and it's all gone? What if I'm alone again? )

Title: Monsters
Fandoms: Heroes
Rating: PG
Genre: Sci-fi, Angst
Warnings: None.
Wordcount: 433
Characters/Pairings: Matt Parkman.
Summary: An introspective piece on power and the potential abuses thereof. Oneshot.
Details:  I actually wrote this around three years ago. I write most of my notes in present tense and convert it to past tense as I flesh out the story. That's actually what this was, the jotted down idea for a more in-depth story. I re-found it by accident, and reading it now I thought it could stand on its own with just a few tweaks, so here it is...

Monster was a word that got thrown around a lot. )

black_sluggard: (Zeitgeist)
Title: Black Edelweiss
Series: Zeitgeist
Follows: One Giant Leap
Fandoms: Castle, Heroes.
Rating: R
Genre: Sci-fi, Suspense, Angst, case fic (if you squint).
Warnings: References to vivisection, torture, human experimentation, September 11th, and the Holocaust.
Details: Pre-slash, crossover, AU, genre-crack, angst, character focus slanted by shameless author bias, interpretation of minor characters bordering on OCs, angst, blatant denial of canon character deaths, questionable character deconstruction (to say the least), "morally grey", canon abuse, time travel, and angst.
Wordcount: 113k+
Characters/Pairings: Castle—ensemble, Ryan/Esposito pre-slash. Heroes—Noah, Angela, Tracy, Hiro, Peter, Sylar, mention of various others. Allusions to characters from NCIS.
Summary: Two weeks after Claire Bennet's televised leap from the Ferris wheel, the 12th handles it's first case delving into the strange world of specials. Evidence points the investigation toward a former Company Agent, a man Noah Bennet would swear up and down doesn't exist.
Notes: Takes place post-series for Heroes, and post- Nikki Heat and Knockdown for Castle. Takes place after my story "One Giant Leap" (for a given value of "after").
I'm fudging the timeline of both shows a bit, but specifically for Heroes, assuming a longer period of time between Volume 3 and 4, and that the series finale, Brave New World, took place in early December of 2010.
Disclaimer: Slash, superpowers and Nazis.
And while it seems almost a waste of time to disclaim this, no, I am not in any way a supporter of Nazi ideals, white supremacy or the Third Reich. I'm just an insane history-loving sci-fi nerd, and I like to acknowledge that Nazis, despite having been human beings moved by human desires, are one of the most universally one-dimensional characters in all of fiction, and wanted to present one that wasn't...
Remember, it's a crossover with Heroes , where things are almost always a bit "morally grey".
That said, there's enough wrong with this whole story for you to hate me, regardless. If for no other reason than because "empathic mimicry" is a horrible cop-out of a power, and is a horrendous plot device even when Peter had it.
This is without a doubt the most psychotic story idea I've ever conceived of, and I apologize in advance to anyone who actually reads this. Castle fans most especially.
Title is borrowed from the memoir by Johann Voss (which I haven't read, I just thought it fit).

(Fic) One Giant Leap

Wednesday, 27 July 2011 07:19 pm
black_sluggard: (Zeitgeist)
Title: One Giant Leap
Series: Zeitgeist
Fandoms: Castle, Heroes and NCIS.  Others hinted.
Rating: PG
Genre: Sci-fi, Angst
Warnings: Genre!crack, time travel, pre-slash (or slash, 'cause, you know, time-travel), crossover, AU, future!fic.
Wordcount: 8,269 words of naked insanity.
Characters/Pairings: Castle—Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, mention of others.
Summary: "I know this is crazy, but it's real. When it's over, go ahead and believe it was all a dream. You'll know better soon enough. I can't give you much without risking events still ahead of you. You've been pulled into the future. Your future. My present."
Details:  Written for [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito's July ficathon.  I'm fudging the timeline for both shows to make this work. Takes place after "Last Call" but before "Nikki Heat" for Castle, and before "Brave New World" for Heroes. More or less... This is actually prologue for a larger fic, a very bizarre multi-crossover series I've been constructing. It mostly foreshadows the general shape of where it's universe would be headed.



Suddenly all the fake vampires, psychics, alien abductions, and curses felt like some sort of twisted dress rehearsal. )
