    Summary

    My dear Maturin,
    I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear that my belly continues to grow, this incipient lump of a thing, and the physician Sophie consulted during her own pregnancies is confident in its progress. My little Arabian is settling into the stables on my cousin’s property, and does not seem to mind the confinement. My own confinement, however, is...

    She crumples the page again, jams her pen onto the block until the nib splinters and she has to cut it anew.

     

    (Or, a pregnant Diana Maturin, nee Villiers, spends her confinement at Ashgrove Cottage, writes many letters, and sends one.)

    Summary

    He never thought the love of his life would be a small, ugly and cantankerous curmudgeon. It was not Sophie, not his ships nor even his duty that made his heart glow. That was right before him.

    The rules

    1: Pick five fandoms characters? books? Whatever seems good. List them in alphabetical order.

    2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

    3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

    4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

    Summary

    Short Btvs and Angel crossovers, written for various games on the Twisting the Hellmouth forums in 2005. I thought that some of them deserved a wider audience. Non-Crossovers, and stories that don't involve the Buffyverse, have been posted separately. Some of these stories were written for death games, others for games in which characters were brought back to life, or their relationships were destroyed. 

    All characters belong to their respective creators; this story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis.

    Summary

    Jack regards him in the dim light. “You are well enough?”
    “Quite well,” Stephen says, and rises. His blood is still thin, his hands are still mangled, his heart is cut out for Diana twice over, but for Jack he can be well enough.

    Summary

    “Stephen reflected upon Sophie’s confinement.” / “Tomorrow, at the crack of dawn, you lose your husband to his natural element.”
    -The Mauritius Command - Patrick O’Brian

    She yearns to leave the window open but is terrified one or the other of the children will topple out from it. And so she sits, holding Fanny, rocking her, and looking out the bolted window, through the wavering glass that blurs and warps the world. Unlike Jack’s telescopes, it does not bring her clarity or comfort, only obfuscation. She can’t see the sea from here, but she knows without a doubt exactly where it lays, at what bearing and what distance. Knows for the creaking in the wood when her husband leaves their bed to climb to his observatory and gaze out upon it, when her ability to please him falls short of his expectations. How odd they should both look at the world through a glass and see it so differently.

    (Or, Sophie, set in the beginning of The Mauritius Command contemplates her family and her life.)

    Summary

    He’s so thin, laid out on top of the cot, the swath of white bandage hiding the carnage, but not Jack’s memory of it. He clutches his pen tighter at the half-blurred remembrance; Stephen’s heart pumping frantically, visible to all and sundry and even now turning Jack’s vision gray. Gray like Stephen’s face, except for his cheeks which flush pink with unhealthy fever.

    (Or, set near the end of HMS Surprise, Jack watches over Stephen during his delirium, and begins understand that love is a complicated thing.)

    Summary

    The famous meeting in the octagonal music-room of the Governor's House in Port Mahon, told from Stephen's POV as well as Jack's, as if they spoke like California surfer dudes/homeboys circa 1980's. No, really.
