it came to my attention that i really need a master post. so here it is.

EDIT
now a true masterlist. to condense things, links are set up by chapter number; mouseover to see the title of each fic. some side stories were written by other authors with my permission, so their links may lead off-site. new posts will be bracketed with asterisks (*) for a week.

Read on...Collapse )

All my fics can also be found at my deviantART gallery, most of them can now be found at FF.net and AO3. New fics will be posted first on my tumblr, along with unfinished or deleted scenes.

Anyone needing to contact me by email can do so at: lex (dot) cant (dot) write (at) gmail (dot) com

so merianmoriarty has been maintaining the Fateverse Glossary and the Fateverse Appendix on deviantART for me. i got her permission to post them here on LJ. i'm a little lazy, so i may not update it as often as she updates the main post...but here it is.

The Fateverse Appendix

posted with merianmoriarty's permission.

the Appendix describes notable subjects, Nodes, timestream bundles, and resonant iterations.

The Fateverse AppendixCollapse )

i actually had this finished about a million years ago, before the enormous setback for female characterization known as Age of Ultron.  since Fifteen is a time-traveler, she's been setting up the Marvel movies out of order.

warnings:  AU - Fateverse.  sci-fi with technobabble.  Rule 63.  language: pg-13 (for s***).

pairing:  gen.

timeline:  NO 3652 (AD 6188), shortly after Conducting the Blizzard.

disclaimer:  marvel owns all the characters, i just made more alternate universe versions of them.

notes:  1) i imagine the emotional state of a powerful individual (especially one who knows magic) would do some wonky things to timeline resonance.  2) i found it interesting (and slightly disappointing, tbh) that while the Dark World trailer used the line "when you betray me," the line in the actual movie was changed to "if you betray me"...and come on, Thor was at that point totally waiting to see just where Loki planned to stab him this time.  3) Fifteen hates being second-guessed and hates micro-managers, so when she has to deal with Analyst!Pietro in person, she probably spends the whole time looking at him like something nasty on the bottom of her awesome shoes.

She can hear the sharp and hungry sound of teeth in his words, the scavenger waiting for the injured predator to fall.Collapse )

the Sacramento job.

warnings:  post-movie (slightly AU?).  OC: Tak Shibuya (Saito's niece).  shades.  brief violence.  evil corporations.  brief ‘sheeple’ rhetoric (lol, Tak’s cover is an anarchist conspiracy-theorist who loves the Twilight novels…).  language: pg-13.

pairing:  negligible background Arthur/Eames.

timeline:  several months post-movie; immediately after Flicker.

disclaimer:  Chris Nolan owns Inception and its characters.

notes:  1) title from a line in “Goliath,” by Karnivool—the song the team’s been using as their music cue to practice for the job.  2) Bottin’s singing “Fun, Fun, Fun,” by the Beach Boys.  3) i imagine with a little practice, extractors could use phones in the dream to communicate, even across different layers.  because, y’know—there is no spoon phone.  4) Artie is singing “I Can’t Decide,” by Scissor Sisters.

…there’s a Fight Club joke in here somewhere, but I’m too stressed to make it….Collapse )

[Inception] Flicker

INCEPTION - The Wild Card - Flicker


two small scenes stitched together so they don't get lonely.

the first is an exercise in how a forge could go wrong for a talented guy like Eames — after all, he’s still sick from his trip to Limbo (this is probably like five days later) — and the second is just a little bit of Tak and Arthur banter.

(and the way Tak interacts with the yap-dog at the end may or may not be exactly the relationship my husband has with dogs.)

warnings:  post-movie (slightly AU?).  OC: Tak Shibuya (Saito's niece).  recovering from Limbo.  language: pg-13.

pairing:  negligible background Arthur/Eames.

timeline:  several months post-movie; immediately after Slingshot.

disclaimer:  Chris Nolan owns Inception and its characters.

notes:  1) Ian Kenny is the singer for the Aussie prog rock group Karnivool.  2) 38.3 C is around 101 F.  3) LA to Sacramento is about an hour-and-a-half flight, and they run pretty regularly.  4) the ominous 'him' that scares even Arthur is Artie the shade, whom Tak and Eames encapsulated in Chaining the Serpent.  5) the Tiffany cufflinks were a gift in Sunshine.  6) Butch the yap-dog is a Chinese Crested, a breed which typically does very well in the World's Ugliest Dog Contest.

…Arthur said you’ve had a fever ever since. No other profession would even think about letting you come back to work.Collapse )

FATEVERSE - Explosions


okay, it stopped snarling when i turned the flashlight on it, so i think it’s done.

this is either the last chapter of Pyrotechnics or something quite close.  perhaps there’ll be a Juliet-centric epilogue.  but this really wants to be the last chapter.  just look at that pithy ending!  i digress…

warnings:  AU - Fateverse.  OCs.  ageism.  technobabble.  depression.  kids who see the future.  heterosexual character in a homoromantic relationship [while canon!Wade is pansexual, savant!Wade is not].  language: pg-13 (primetime tv plus s*** and f***).

pairing:  asexual (but homoromantic) Nate/Wade.

timeline:  a week or two after I Can Science?

disclaimer:  marvel owns all the characters, i just made more alternate universe versions of them.

notes:  1) title from the Ellie Goulding song.  2) Juliet is perceptive, intuitive, and incredibly persistent.  3) 'broken things can't fix themselves' is a little gem of wisdom from the Waking Man universe's version of Domino.  4) i'm told that the person Five is based on has recently started making near-constant "your face" jokes in an effort to reduce her fluent swearing.  it was too awkwardly hilarious to pass up.  5) the sub-lev is the mag-lev subway that serves the understructure of the Fidelis District (the majority of their commerce actually goes on in vast underground malls, some of which look directly out to sea).  remind me to add "map of the District" to the list of unreasonable demands for free art from Moriarty...  6) Natalie's personal rule has stopped her from dating probably four or five Wades.  eh, her loss.

I’ve already gone over all this with Quentin; he’s a lot more stubborn than you, and I still convinced him.Collapse )

FATEVERSE - I Can Science


'cause girls can sottly science.  i dunno, Savant!Wade seemed depressed, so i gave him an impressionable mind to mold.

warnings:  AU - Fateverse.  OFC.  ageism.  handwavy science.  language: pg.

pairing:  none/gen.

timeline:  a few months after Pompeii.

disclaimer:  marvel owns all the characters, i just made more alternate universe versions of them.

notes:  this Juliet is probably like a cross between Juliet and James from the Waking Man universe; she’s an older sister instead of a twin, and does what she can to ignore the insane ideas coming from her elders.  Jubilee was probably her usual babysitter as a munchkin, and Quentin probably spends an inordinate amount of his time crushing her dreams because it makes her pout and run off to science harder (i think he’s secretly hoping to turn her into his very own pet mad scientist).  the set of twins who live to her left probably have Scott for a dad (sucks to be them), and are at the Core to learn how to be Warders.

FATEVERSE - Pompeii


iiiiiiiiiii don’t know if this is done.  i’ve torn it apart and rebuilt it so many times now…  trying to exorcise the Savant’s issues without seeming didactic is a rough edge to walk.

warnings:  AU - Fateverse.  unrequited love.  discussion of personal loss.  flangst.  sci-fi with technobabble.  language: pg-13 (for f***, s***, and g**damn).

pairing:  one-sided Nate/Wade.

timeline:  some undetermined date a little more than ten years after Fading Embers — NO 3663-ish.

disclaimer:  marvel owns all the characters, i just made more alternate universe versions of them.

notes:  1) title from the Bastille song of the same name.  2) i nearly named the chapter "Volcano Day."  the working title was "Home," which just plain lacked punch.

INCEPTION - The Point Man - Slingshot


an awkward little set-up piece.  like an infographic for synergistic architecture, except that i wrote it instead of drawing it, lol.

contains some Ariadne and Arthur with a side of Yusuf and brief snarkery by Eames and Tak. includes elements of “Arthur Does Not Ask Stupid Questions,” “Yusuf Will Ask Stupid Questions All Day Long,” and “Arthur, You Ass, Ariadne Knows What She’s Doing.”

warnings:  post-movie (slightly AU?).  OC: Tak Shibuya.  language: pg-13 (for use of s***).

pairing:  none/gen.

timeline:  several months post-movie; shortly after Zaichik (Bunny).

disclaimer:  Chris Nolan owns Inception and its characters.

notes:  1) i noted in one of my readers a certain confusion -- the job is in Sacramento, but they're still working out of LA right now; Tak is more than likely flying back and forth every day or every other day.  it's like an hour and a half airtime each way for $200 round trip, right now.  2) this chapter is mostly exposition, to explain the practical use of synergistic architecture (rather than the basic concept, of making parts of levels mimic each other to disguise the depth of the dream).

We’re not just for pretty, okay?Collapse )
