Title: Past Today
Fandom: Dark Angel
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dollarformyname
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] 2blueshoes
Cheerleader: [livejournal.com profile] chiiyo86
Characters: Alec, Ben
Rating: R
Warnings: "Off-screen" major character deaths, violence, other deaths of the OC variety.
Timeline: Takes place about five years after Freak Nation.
Words: ~28.5k
Summary: Terminal City was abandoned after an attack five years ago, survivors scattered to fend for themselves. Alec's been on his own for a while now, trying to forget what he lost, but then Ben shows up to make him remember in all the wrong ways. After an armed robbery and a city-wide manhunt that results in high-speed chases, gunshot wounds, more dead transgenics, and a hostage situation or two, Alec tracks Ben down to thank him properly.

A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] darkangel_bb 2014. Unending gratitude to my team of awesome helpers/collaborators and detailed notes can be found at the end of the fic.

In the spirit of trying to kick my muse in the butt, I went through my WIP folder to organize and clean stuff out, and found a whole bunch of fic-type miscellany that I will probably never get around to expanding on/finishing. Packrat that I am, actually pushing the delete button has proven painful, so I've decided some of them might work all right as standalone ficlets. For the sake of not spamming my f-list I'll just do a couple at a time.

So! Have some randomness that needed to be purged from my brain (and my hard drive).

SPN/DA. Sam POV. Alec is not a hitchhiking apparition. Sam picks him up. )

SPN. Jess POV. She'll survive the fire. She'll wish she hadn't. )

Title: Waking Up The Ghost
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Alec and Ben have met before, but it's a little tough to hang onto memories in a place so fond of brainwashing. While Manticore was trying to repair Ben after his run-in with Max, and making sure Alec wasn't headed for the same kinda crazy, they were often confined in the same places at the same times. Ben loved his stories. What Alec doesn't remember is that he loved them, too. Wouldn't have been so bad, except those Psy-Ops guys really got into your head, stirred up the bad and kicked the wrong mental doors open. It got hard to know what was real, what was sane.

Later, Ben decides it's safe enough to come back to Seattle and check on his little brother. Dealing with him starts to shake some of Alec's memories loose, and suddenly Ben's way of thinking doesn't seem quite so crazy anymore.

Onward! )

Title: The Open Way's Too Dangerous (WIP)
Fandom: Dark Angel
Pairings/Characters: There are definite Max/Ames/Alec vibes in varying combinations, but nothing too explicit.
Rating: R
Warnings: Language. Crack. And I say again, this a WIP, so don't say you weren't warned.
Timeline/Spoilers: Takes place at some vague point before Freak Nation. Transgenics are a known "threat to public", but some individual faces aren't quite famous for it yet.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Not for profit. Title from the song First Wave Intact by Secret Machines. Also, there's a snippet of a quote toward the end that was extracted from the Dark Angel Wiki.
Word Count: ~9k so far.
Summary: Alec, Max, and Ames White mysteriously lose their memories and have to team up to fight off the gang of Steelheads who seem pretty intent on killing them. Many misunderstandings about the world around them and who they are to each other seem inevitable.

A/N: Ahhh, finally! Written for the [livejournal.com profile] da_reversebang based on [livejournal.com profile] cassiopeia7's MAGNIFICENT art prompt. Massive thanks to her for putting up with me. I fell in love with the art prompt immediately, and I kind of love this thing that it birthed, even if I haven't slept for days and any last-minute edits might come off wonky. My beta was my roommate, who's not familiar with canon, so any plot holes are entirely my own fault.

ETA 7/17/14: Oh geez. Just about a year later, what a mess. Short story: there was a huge, major plot hole that I didn't notice until the last second. I locked everything back up in a hurry to edit that, got one of those phone calls that no one ever wants to get literally in the middle of rewriting this thing, and that sent RL into tailspin where, unfortunately, fandom stuff fell to the wayside. I haven't been able to write worth a damn for a long time, but some gentle prodding from [livejournal.com profile] denyce (THANK YOUUUU) got me to look at this again and I decided to just post what I have now, and post the rest as it comes/is edited. An unfinished something is better than nothing, I think? I hope. Anyway, ENDLESSLY HUGE WHOPPING apologies to my artist, [livejournal.com profile] cassiopeia7, for the utter failure on my part. If nothing else, everyone should take a look at the art, because, again, it is magnificent!

Story: The Most Dangerous Game
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ukefied
My ramblings: Second year in this BB collaborating with an amazing author who wrote one of my new faaaaavorite things! When I saw the summary during claims, it was very clearly for my own prompt, which seemed kind of like cheating somehow, but it was awesome and I couldn't help it. I AM WEAK, DON'T JUDGE ME. There's hot Alec/Ben and awesome h/c and a lovable Max and monster hunting and and and. I lost count of all the squeeful things. I wish I could've drawn tons more. Muchas gracias to [livejournal.com profile] ukefied for being so patient and encouraging and just all-around AMAZING. It's been a blast. <333

NOW GO READ THE FIC.

Just coming out of my cave to post this meager offering and run away again. I know I haven't posted anything anyone cares about in forever, but hopefully I'll find my worth-a-damn again someday soon. I CAN HOPE. I may bitch about how hard RL sucks later, after a week or two of sleep. Fair warning. Until then...

These are kinda random, and I'm not all that great at icon-making—they're so damn tiny, and I'm so damn BLIND—so there's nothing spectacular or fancy here. There's a reason I don't do these regularly. The attempt was fun for a minute, and then I just started cheating and making alternate versions. XD I like black-and-white, though, so there. Er, blue-ish gray? ANYWAY.

For [livejournal.com profile] denyce, for being awesome. ♥!



More under the cut. )

The usual applies: don't hotlink, credit and comments are lovely, etc.. Credit goes to [livejournal.com profile] dont_be_so_base for, like, half the icon crops. (I told you I cheated.) Resources are here.

I gotta post and run so hopefully nothing gets screwed up too badly here. /o\

Icons for the 12 days challenge @ [livejournal.com profile] jam_pony_fic. Granting wish #6D: holiday icons.

Fandoms: Supernatural/Buffy/Angel/Dark Angel
Pairings: Sam/Jess, Connor/Dawn possibly others (romance not really the focus here, though)
Rating: R
Warnings: Violence. Slightly disturbing treatment of tiny little X-5s. Minor character deaths very likely. Language.
Timeline/Spoilers: Ats: post Not Fade Away; BtVS: post Chosen; SPN: pre-series; DA: pre-series. It's around May of 2005 if that helps.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Not for profit. Story title from Queen's Fight From The Inside. Chapter titles from Pink Floyd's The Final Cut. No copyright infringement intended.

A/N: 1st chapter is here. Thanks to trouble for the quick beta! I'm sorry I'm slooooow. I can't seem to speed things along for the life of me, but gradual progress is better than no progress, right? :D

Dawn can't stop looking at her, at those eyes. )

Story: Designation: Hostile 17
Fandoms: Dark Angel/Buffy
Author: [livejournal.com profile] denyce
My ramblings: So, in the claims process, I got as far as Spike/Alec and nearly keysmashed all over the place. Luckily I got the fic, which is fantastic, but [livejournal.com profile] denyce was even better. I know what you're thinking: BETTER THAN ALEC/SPIKE?! HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? But it's all true, I swear. I couldn't have asked for a more patient person to hold my hand while I fumbled my way back to my drawing roots after a million years of not picking up a pencil. The fic didn't lack for inspiration, of course; I got a little spastic about drawing this, that, and the other thing before I could even finish the first thing. The fun was out of control. ♥

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the story.

PREVIEW


More this way. )

dollarformyname: (adam.1)
I've had a huge block in all things creative this year (which sucks for more than fannish reasons; my job kind of relies on it too), but I'm trying really, really hard to fix it. In fact, after tooling around with pictures last night I sat down and wrote 4,000 words of fic. Just. Not anything I was needing to focus on. SOMETHING ALL NEW TO LEAVE UNFINISHED ARGH.

My muse is like one of those people who drives and drives and refuses to admit that they're lost--Maps? Where we're goin' we don't need no stinkin' maps!--and by the time they decide that okay, they might be a little turned around, they're at the bottom of the ocean.

Meh. But it's a start, right?

:/

Anyway.

I made some kinda-random art stuff. I've got a few fics on the backburner that I'm trying to gear myself up to write/finish. (Can you guess from the art what they might focus on? :P) Yeah, so that's mostly why this post is happening. I knew I had a point when I started.
