Title: Duo In Carne Una
Series: Genus
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Horror, Science Fiction, Romance, Angst.
Warnings: Squick, panic attacks/PTSD, and we'll say dub-con for various abstract reasons.
Details: Slash, AU, genre!crack, angst, body horror, xenophilia, starfish aliens, tentacles, kink, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings:Castle―Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Kevin/Jenny.
Wordcount: 9,079
Summary: Months after the revelations which challenged everything he knew about his partner—and in the face of his looming wedding—Kevin makes his choice. (Sequel to "Sui Generis".)
Notes: More weirdness from me. I'll pretend that you're surprised. This one is a lot more romantic than the first, but there's also a lot of...other stuff. Think Jerry McGuire meets National Geographic meets "At the Mountains of Madness" (or "You had me at 'shoggoth'.").
This is where I start pointing at the order in which the listed genres appear...but, I'm also incapable of writing a tragedy, and on the off chance I ever did I would definitely label it as such.
(Which is, I guess, my way of reassuring you all that no one is about to die or get eaten.)


Just thinking about what he had to do was gutting him. Still, it felt...right to him, just the same. )

Title: Eadem Mutata Resurgo
Series: Genus
Fandoms:Castle
Rating: R
Genre: Horror, Angst, Science-fiction.
Warnings: Off-screen character death, gore, present tense (if that needs a warning).
Details: Gen, AU, genre!crack, angst, body horror, starfish aliens, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito.
Wordcount: 1,390
Summary: Most stories have a beginning and an end. Sometimes it's impossible to tell the difference. (Prequel to "Sui Generis".)
Notes:This isn't the sequel I've been working on. That story contains significantly more porn. But this scene sort of hit me over the head tonight (while I was working on something completely unrelated, to be honest), and wound up finishing itself quite nicely.

He doesn't know which should worry him more, the memory of pain, or the lack of it. )

Title: 'Til Underverse Come
Series: A Once and Future Thing
Fandoms: The Chronicles of Riddick, The Eagle, The 13th Warrior, Castle, Terminator, Terminator: Salvation, Firefly.
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance, Supernatural, Science Fiction
Warnings: Canon character deaths, spoilers.
Details: Slash, het. Crossover (like whoa), reincarnation, unbetad.
Wordcount: 1,767
Characters/Pairings: The Chronicles of Riddick—pre-Richard B. Riddick/Vaako, Imam, Kyra. The Eagle—Marcus/Esca, Uncle Aquilla. The 13th Warrior—Ahmad ibn-Fahdlan/Herger. Castle—Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Roy Montgomery, Kate Beckett. Terminator: Salvation—Star/Kyle Reese. Firefly—Zoe/Hoban Washburne, Derrial Book, Inara.
Summary: When Riddick crosses the threshold into Underverse, he sees all.
Details: This crazy mass-crossover is an expansion on the reincarnation saga previously explored in Deja Vu and Jamais Vu. I had a few of these ties in mind already, but the core of this only came on me today, and like the other entries in this series, the thing basically wrote itself.

It is only when they are together that they truly live. )

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.

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.

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. )
black_sluggard: (ryan and esposito)
I have three multichapter fics in progress at the moment, and several unfinished entries for the Life verse. I have two works in progress that I have yet to dangle in front of anybody. I have notes for multiple sequels for almost every fic I've written so far. Yet, for some reason, my brain decided to spit out not just another Roach idea, but one which has (apparently) grabbed my brain to the extent that it required a banner be made of it.

Yes, that's right. I spent several hours today on a banner for a fic I may never even write.



(used: bonfire, shadow)

If I ever do write this, it'll be the first fic I've done with legit Caskett and Kevin/Jenny in it. Though the chief pairing in this one...

Well, let's just say it's still a Roach fic at heart. In an odd, my-love-triangles-use-non-Euclidean-geometry sort of way.

(also, apologies to [livejournal.com profile] ifshadowsoffend, but the quote is really too perfect for the story)

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. )

(Ficlet) Jamais Vu

Title: Jamais Vu
Series: A Once and Future Thing
Fandoms: Castle, The Eagle
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance, Supernatural
Warnings: spoilers for The Eagle.
Details: Pre-slash, genre!crack, crossover, unbetad.
Wordcount: 870
Characters/Pairings: Castle—pre-Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan. The Eagle—pre-Marcus/Esca.
Summary: "I swore an oath of honor never to abandon you."
Details: I consider this a prequel of sorts to "Deja Vu".
Oh, and like "Deja Vu" and "Women Scorned", the idea for this was actually poached out of someone else's conversation, so blame—er, credit to [livejournal.com profile] coffeebuddha and [livejournal.com profile] theslashbunny for putting it in my head.


Watching Javier drive away had left a cold, tight ache in his gut. It was more than just fear. More than just tension )

black_sluggard: (xeno kink)

Title: Incubus
Series: Life
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: R
Genre: Horror, Angst, Romance
Warnings: Slash, genre!crack, zombies, unbetad, spoilers for Knockout in a massively AU sort of way. Dark, horror, explicit violence and gore, non-explicit sexual content, squick, vore, cannibalism. Warnings are there for a reason. Heed them. While some of these warnings were also on "Quality of Life", this fic isn't nice about them like that one was.
Also: I had thought I was long past the point of feeling cruel for what I inflict on characters when I write. This one proved me wrong. That could be a warning in and of itself...
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan. Hal Lockwood.
Wordcount: 2,320
Summary: A formula for mutually assured destruction.
Details: Life AU. Thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] roachstar (if she's willing to accept it) for reminding me that if Montgomery was still alive in this 'verse, then Lockwood probably was too.


A head shot was the only chance he'd ever had of leaving that alley alive... )

Title:  Sui Generis
Series: Genus
Fandom: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror, Sci-fi, Romance.
Warnings: Possible squick, non-sexual content skirting dub-con
Reverse Warnings: Whatever certain scenes or warnings might lead one to believe, this fic contains neither mpreg nor naughty tentacles. I promise.
Details: Pre-slash, AU, genre!crack, angst, body horror, mood whiplash, insanity (not the characters', mine), starfish aliens, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Castle―pre-Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Kevin/Jenny, Richard Castle.
Wordcount: 14,909
Summary: Javier confessed never expecting Kevin to believe him. Kevin didn't, but somehow, things still wound up spiraling frighteningly out of control...
Details: I began this prior to the episode "Heartbreak Hotel", so it kind of hinges on Jenny not being ridiculous enough to deny her future husband his best man...
I partially blame [info]start_to_stop for this fic. Their alien!Jenny fic was just so awesome I had to play with my own personal plot smeerp. Don't expect anything approaching normal here. Of course, because I am incapable of writing a concept without taking it seriously, this is yet another attempt at crack that devolved into something else. This time xeno and body horror. For those of you who liked "Evidence to the Contrary" and "Quality of Life", here's more of the same type of bizarre weirdness... Only kind of even more so. *sigh* I need to stop letting my undiagnosed brain tumor write my fics for me.

Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 1,035
Summary: ...but words can never hurt me. A glossary disguised as a trio of loosely word-themed ficlets.
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).
 
It was such a simple word, small and deceptively familiar. )

Wordcount: 285

Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that strange AU where Javier is a zombie, and Montgomery is still alive).

Next time, maybe. Next time… )

Title: Night Terrors

Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror, Angst, Romance, Hurt/Comfort
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, violent imagery, references to cannibalism, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan
Wordcount: 667
Summary: He felt so stupid when it hit him later that day. Just one of those random connections the brain often made when it was occupied by something else entirely, but the realization left him feeling chilled, and ill, and uncomfortable all the same.
Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that strange AU where Javier is a zombie, and Montgomery is still alive).

He knew that during onset Javier had sometimes dreamed while he was still awake, but he hadn't realized that it still happened. )

Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror, Angst, Romance.
Details: Slash, genre!crack, angst, darkishness, zombies.

Characters/Pairings: CastleJavier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Wordcount: 3,354
Summary: If love is a selfish emotion, then loving unconditionally is the most selfish of all.
Notes: Companion fic to Quality of Life, filling in a few blanks from Kevin's perspective. Because it's almost Hallowe'en, and my zombie muse is pushy.

And when his fantasies shifted, when they began to include cold lips and white teeth, Kevin knew he was completely screwed. )
