    Edit: Written before 2x05 aired so kind of AU-ish by now, but not too much.

    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.

    Summary

    There's a kind of sound you might know as Arctic Monkeys, and a kind of meaning that sits between the lines of their songs. I fell in love with Arabella and apparently so did Harry. This fic is because fame and fortune, beauty and glamour, don't matter as much as what's beneath your skin.

    Summary

    “Say, Jaeger,” he says in a conversational tone, sliding into the passenger’s seat, “you know I hate you, right?”

    Eren gives him a sideways crooked grin, kind of warped round the edges, maybe a little hungry.

    “I know,” he says, frankly. “Why do you think I asked you?”
