    Summary

    Everything changes when Dad knocks on the door. Dean changes, most of all, and Sam hates that. He wants them staying safe in Blue Earth with his soccer ball, Dean’s essay on Vonnegut, and the ceaseless fountain of weird ideas that seems to flow when they don’t have to worry about making Dad mad.

    But it’s not about what Sam wants. It never is. So instead, he’s sitting in the car in the middle of the night on the side of an abandoned highway, trying to stay awake while Dad and Dean try not to die.

    Fall 1995.

    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

    In January of 2281, before the Courier wakes up in Goodsprings, a man named Leon arrives in the Mojave and his smallest actions shape the future of the wasteland.
    This fic is intended to become mainly, if not exclusively Arcade Gannon/Vulpes Inculta, the addition of OCs is mainly to get them to that point, as I wanted to do some different way of getting the two involved with each other.
    ((NOTE: Some Other World is my primary project until I finish it, this may be updated occasionally, but it will not be updated often until that is finished.))

    Summary

    He knew he was asleep, even knew that was the word for it – something he had read about in passing and not given much thought to, since his dreams were not something he wanted to explore. He lived in a very small corner of his mind, and stayed far away from the vast expanse that lay slumbering beyond those safe limits of "Sasaki Haise". In his dreams, the lines blurred and it was no longer such a clear boundary. He could feel the presence of the Voice, though he did not yet hear it bleeding into his thoughts. It would soon.

    If he knew how to wake up, Sasaki would have instantly.
