Notes: What happens when I stay up past 6 am trying to squeeze the last few days of progress out of my NaNo? Why, I get ambushed out of nowhere by a ficlet for a series I haven't managed to complete anything for in more than two years.

Series: Life
Fandoms:Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Fluff, Friendship, Family.
Warnings: Reference to past medical recovery. OCs
Details: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, hurt/comfort, platonic physical affection, emotional vulnerability, skin hunger, diabetes like woah.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Richard Castle. Reggie Simpson (OC).
Wordcount: 1,593
Summary: Sometimes the strongest thing a person can do is allow themselves to lean on others.
Notes: Revisits a few scenes from part two of "Quality of Life" and finishes immediately after "Heart Attack".

One thing he had absolutely failed to anticipate was how much he would miss being touched... )

Title: Solo Duet
Series: Life
Fandoms:Castle
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Romance, Humor, PWP, Angst.
Warnings: Explicit sexual content, unbetad.
Details: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, awkwardness, naughtiness, teasing, sexual dysfunction, masturbation, exhibitionism, dirty talk.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 1,241
Summary: Life isn't always perfect, but it often doesn't have to be.
Notes: Just a little early-relationship snippet from the Life 'verse (maybe a few days to a week after the end of Quality of Life) that's been sitting around unfinished for ages. I believe it was initially inspired by MMOM atleast two years ago, but never finished until now.

And Kevin knew he was babbling, but seeing Javier looking uncertain like that did all kind of namelessly unhappy things to him. )

Title: (Not So) Secret Santa
Series: Evidence
Fandom: Castle
Rating: PG
Genre: Humor, Friendship, Supernatural, Angst.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Richard Castle.
Details: Slash, genre!crack, werewolves, friendship, Christmas, Castle being Castle, unbetad.
Word Count: 808
Summary:Though their strange condition had turned out unexpectedly benign, there were still times when Kevin thought the whole werewolf thing was kind of a drag.
Notes: The

[livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito Secret Santa didn't happen this year, so I thought I'd see about developing this Evidence 'verse crack-bunny that's been sitting around for ages.
For a relative time for this, I suppose that Trier of Fact would have taken place over September and October, Evidence to the Contrary in November.

 



Between the confirmed existence of things beyond the natural, his transformation into one of them, and the keen senses that transformation had granted, Kevin sometimes thought he might no longer even be capable of surprise... )

Title: Ghoulies and Ghosties
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Horror, Angst, Fluff.
Details: Slash, genre!crack, horror elements, folklore, scary stories.
Wordcount: 1,840
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Summary: It's past midnight on their first Halloween together, and Kevin and Javier are finally ready to talk about it. Sort of.
(Sequel to "Trick or Treat")
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] spook_me challenge (a bit late, but not bad compared to my usual definition of "late"). Since I'd written several supernatural and horror fics in the past, I asked to be given a creature prompt instead of choosing one myself. The creature I was assigned was "bogeyman", which immediately had my mind leap back to this 'verse. So instead of an actual new story, you get a coda/sequel instead.
Also, I have to acknowledge that the scene was partially inspired by [livejournal.com profile] apodiopsys's story "Call It What You Want".

This year, they had each needed the silence—the normalcy—of a quiet night in. )

Title: Substitution
Series: Life
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Angst, Romance, PWP, Horror
Warnings: Explicit sexual content, biting/marking, bruises, references to bigotry, unbetad.
Details: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, naughtiness, oral sex, boys in bathrooms, slight instances of infodumpage encroaching on porn.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 2,857
Summary: Kevin's POV from "Sublimation", both the events leading up to it, and what followed.
Notes: Because my subconscious is apparently so enamored of bathrooms it saw fit to revisit a fic I'd already written, only longer, dirtier and from Kevin's point of view. The actual hotness of this is very, very subjective. Not all parts of it are meant to be, because it's more important to me that it be honest to the realities of Javier's condition. Which...probably means I fail at PWP forever, but oh well. What little plot this has provides a better look at why Javier blew his lid in interrogation and how he, er—
(You know what, I'm not even going to go there. I'm pretty sure I'm already going to hell for this anyway...)

Kevin hadn't thought, laying eyes on their crime scene, that today would be one of the lucky ones. )

Title: Magic Enough in Moonlight
Series: Evidence
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Fluff, Supernatural
Details: Slash, genre!crack, present tense, the fluffiest of fluff about fluffy werewolves, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Kevin Ryan/Javier Esposito.
Wordcount: 339
Summary: A full-moon weekend in the Hamptons.
Notes: Takes place at a nonspecific time after Evidence to the Contrary.

Cold bites sharply at skins left suddenly bare and unprotected from the air, and they curl up into each other, nestled closely with the heat trapped between them. )

Title: A Proliferation of Hearts
Series: Life
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Fluff, Angst, Humor.
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, established relationship, cheesiness, fluff, mild squick, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Wordcount: 1,879
Summary: Which concerns dubious holiday purchases, Javier being uncharacteristically sentimental, Kevin being characteristically demented, and the probability of them actually waiting for dessert approaches zero.
Details: Written for [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito's Valentine's Day Mini Ficathon. A little late.
This probably reads very strangely to anyone who hasn't read my Life series, but all you need know is that Javier is just a tiny bit...undead.
I know I said a V-Day fic for Life would wind up too cheesy, but— Um, no, actually I was right. It's way cheesy. I just did it anyway.



To be quite honest, the thing which had surprised Javier the most was that it was even possible for him to find the holiday any more offensive than he already had. )

Title: Stupid Questions (And Other Things That Don't Exist)
Series: Evidence
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Fluff, Supernatural.
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, werewolves, drunken naughtiness, fluff, meta, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Richard Castle, Kate Beckett (we'll say Caskett-ish, since I do eventually plan to go there in this 'verse, just not yet.)
Wordcount: 1,490
Summary: In which two drunk werewolves wax meta on the supernatural, and apparently everyone's adorable.
Details: Remember when, like, there were werewolves? Takes place in the same universe as "Evidence to the Contrary". I always had meant to revisit this 'verse, but this is sooo not how I imagined doing it. I blame public transit. I come up with the weirdest ideas on the train... I actually came up with this before Christmas, then intended to do it for New Years. With a few tweaks, though, it serves well enough for Valentines Day. Might as well. It's not like the Zeitgeist 'verse is ever getting a fic for that holiday, and I while I could probably do one for the Life 'verse it would probably wind up waaaay cheesier than I would ever want.

"Like...if werewolves are real, what else?" )

Wordcount: 610
Summary: On writer-wrangling and rites of passage.
Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" where Javier is a zombie, and Montgomery is still alive. Most other fics in that 'verse are slash, but it doesn't really enter into this one.

Title: Thanksgiving

Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG
Genre: Angst, Romance, Fluff, Humor
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, unbetad (all par, for me), prejudice, what could be perceived as borderline Catholic bashing (see end notes), coming-out clichés, potential minor squick.
Characters/Pairings:  Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 1,076
Summary: It was a given they each had a lot to be thankful for… (A holiday fic late for its holiday.)
Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that weird AU where Javier is a zombie and Montgomery is still alive).

Rating: PG
Genre: Humor, Angst, Romance, Fluff
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, unbetad (all par, for me).
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 525
Summary: Though post-vitals were resistant to many forms of disease, there were numerous minor indignities Javier still had to worry about (i.e., more zombie cuteness).
Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that weird AU where Javier is a zombie and Montgomery is still alive).


Certain aspects of Javier’s condition made the hurts and illnesses he was still susceptible to difficult to diagnose... )

Title: Trick or Treat
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror, Fluff (do those two go together? Apparently, if you're me.)
Details: Pre-slash, genre!crack, horror elements (which are for once totally not squicky), adorability, Roachletts.
Wordcount:  5,508
Characters/Pairings: Castle―Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Summary: "Is someone...singing?"
Notes: Written for the Halloween Anon-athon at [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito. Though, honestly, this fic probably couldn't have been less anonymous if I tried. Javi's POV? Check. Geek references? Check. Supernatural elements and   internal repetition? Check and check. This fic was heavily influenced by Stephen King's IT.
 
 
All it had taken was a weakening at a single point. After that, it all came down easily. )

Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, naughtiness, boys in bathrooms, PWPish, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 663
Summary: Javier's condition meant their relationship was one of constant compromise, but not all of those compromises were a burden... Another angst-fluffish ficlet from the Life 'verse.
Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that weird AU where Javier is a zombie and Montgomery is still alive).
