    Summary

    it is the destiny of raleigh becket and mako mori to save the world from the approaching apocalypse, but both of them are also destined to die before that time. so the universe sends them guardians to keep them alive to perform their duties in the breach, when it opens.

    or: yancy becket and stacker pentecost are sort of guardian angels, whose job it is to protect their respective charges from harm, but also to keep the balance of the universe: a deliverance can only come from a sacrifice.

    and the sacrifice it will take to deliver the world is going to be incredible.

    Summary

    Skye's reflections during sex with Coulson. Inspired by a section on desire in Jean-Paul Sartre's Being and Nothingness. That's why it sounds like a philosophy research paper at times and then other times verges off into terrible purple writing. Anyhoo, it got written.

    Summary

    "That bad?" She jokes, and she can taste blood in her mouth from biting down too hard on her tongue. She swallows it down and tries not to flinch at how it tastes more like oil than iron.

    Summary

    ‘Shock, denial, guilt. The words came with starched white coats and blank eyes, faces twisted into ugly sympathy as they expressed halfhearted condolences.’

    I honestly don't know what this is thus I cannot summarise it. But hey, take a chance, maybe you'll like it. Maybe.

    Summary

    There is a Grain of Sand in Lambeth that Satan cannot find
    Nor can his Watch Fiends find it: tis translucent & has many Angles

    Opening into Beulah every angle is a lovely heaven
    (William Blake, Jerusalem 37:15-18)

    An angel overhears the prayer of a hunter, but doesn't reveal himself. That's it.

    Summary

    Once more I manage to venture into fanfic that fails to conform to the norms of fanfic. Sue me. I started out as a theater babe.

    This is...hmm. Abstract set, surreal story, characters in search of a meaning, weird, unplayable, more than a bit pompous, and something I do when I should be otherwise working.

    Really. It's a script. It's flakey. It's got all these quirky bits of freakishness--bits of "Camino Real" weirdness, Tom Stoppard "Rosencranz and Guildenstern" lunacy, a dollop of "Skin of our Teeth" fluidity, and far, far too much no-budget theater talking heads/no tech/low tech.

    All it needs is Death from Pratchett to show up and ask if anyone's seen the seventh seal, sorry to be a bother, but there was an accident with a circus and someone has to take care of the wrap-up....He's done the first six seals and the occelot, but the seventh seal seems to have gone missing. Yeah. And now that I've thought of that ending I'm half tempted to edit it in. Consider yourselves warned.

    Summary

    A network of roads and inter-dimensional portals connects every reality known and unknown, and it's all about to be lost forever. Castiel, Dean, Sam, and Jet fight to make sense of an unravelling mess and keep the universe in one piece. It's a big job but it all has to start somewhere.
    Rated Explicit for later chapters.
