    Summary

    While overseas in the Allied effort to defeat Nazi Germany, Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes writes letters back home to his family. His words barely scratch the surface of his experiences.

    A comic/MCU crossover character study for Bucky Barnes, exploring his childhood while his father was stationed in the mid-west, his transplant to Brooklyn and forming of his friendship with Steve Rogers, and finally his experiences as a Howling Commando. Basically, this is all about James' relationships: the relationship with his father, mother and sisters; the evolving relationship with Steve both as a young man during the Depression and then as comrades post-Project Rebirth. Not as much original plot as my other fics, but something I wanted to do because Captain America: The First Avenger was about Steve. So this is a treatment of CA:TFA from James' perspective.

    The first 22 Chapters are a long build with many original characters.

    Chapter 23 introduces Steve Rogers, for those that would like to jump in the middle.

    Summary

    At this point, more than 100 posts in, I do think it only fair to rewrite this intro. This is a whopping big heap of meta posts, dealing primarily with *Sherlock*, though heaven knows a lot of other literature and art wanders through. The writing quality and style varies from fairly good pseudo-academic to outright fangirl squee. If it's worth reading at all, it's worth reading because it's fun watching someone who really does care how art works go hunting for the engines that drive the show, and to guess at the hidden and not-so-hidden details that may shape the future of the show.

    Original intro below:

    Of all these little meta digressions, this is more truly an essay and piece of lit-crit. I had a chunk of last night and this morning to think about the structure and nature of how a story is told, and what your perception of the story does to your choices of through-lines. This is a lit-crit essay focusing on *Sherlock*, and using Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie as paradigmatic examples of two different approaches to the development of narrative spines and through-lines. Meta. Essay. Lit-crit. Analysis. Dry. Somewhat academic. Consider yourselves thoroughly warned. My inner honor student shineth forth.

    Summary

    “But all Shaw ever did was perhaps create the creature himself, his nurturing didn’t go very far to help him with his abilities. I’m afraid the rapid improvement and enormity of Erik’s powers can all be attributed to my own nurturing. So doesn’t that, in fact make me Doctor Frankenstein instead?”

    Summary

    Lest faith turn to despair is a critical appreciation of a dramatic essay in philosophy of love, Steven Antin’s Young Americans (Columbia TriStar & Mandalay Television for The WB network, 2000), in the form of a fanfiction sequel.

    Synopsis: The original drama’s “true love” story affects that drama’s other characters.

    Lest faith turn to despair is a drama in five acts, plus prologue, intermezzo, envoi and notes. Each act, like the intermezzo, covers one of six consecutive days around the Thanksgiving following the original drama. Due to its length, it is posted on Archive of Our Own as a series of six works, with the notes as a separate work.

    All sexually active characters are above the legal age of consent in the setting place.

    Summary

    A little project I made for my final year as an undergrad. I took the idea from T.S. Elliot's "Wasteland." It's a mix of Durarara, Hetalia, and D. Gray-Man which breaks off into three separate stories that will eventually merge into one. It'll be easy to spot out which parts are which with each poem. Now with more details and better edits.

    Summary

    Dean Smith is bad at stepping outside of his comfort zone, at being spontaneous, at living. But he learns more at college than he expected when he repeatedly crosses paths with a mysterious, blue-eyed restless punk named Castiel. Set against a backdrop of bookstores and bars, concerts and cappuccinos, Dean learns that sometimes living is as much about the paths we don't decide to take as the ones we do. He learns that the ultimate question isn't 'How do you find love?' because sometimes it finds you, but 'How do you make love stay?'

    Summary

    Where Doctor Jem Moriarty looked down at what she had created as its pale eyes first opened. She took a step back. She shuddered at the hideousness of her creation. Oh, not its form. Its form was perfect. She had computer modelled every aspect of its flesh. She had accomplished what no other Alpha had. The creation of life without needing an Omega to gestate that life. To enter random chance into that creation. Her work. All the perfection that went into it was a horrible contrast with its watery eyes as it came awake for the first time.

    Where she turned away and where her creation went next.
