    Summary

    I've contributed to several round robins on Twisting the Hellmouth, the Buffyverse crossover site. Most of my contributions don't work without the background created by other authors, but some can be read as stand-alone stories with a little editing. I've decided to start posting them here. This also contains comment fic and other odds and ends.

    Warning - some of the fandoms and characters listed in the tags only appear for a line or two in the stories. See the notes at the start of the first chapter for a list of the crossovers.

    Summary

    Set post-Use of Weapons: Diziet Sma takes a much-needed holiday, whilst coming to terms with the book's revelations and doing the Orbital's Mind a favour helping out a young Contact recruit.
    In response to this prompt:
    "What happens in the Culture when SC isn't getting involved in something messy? What do people like Diziet do when off-duty? Feel free to write porn if you think that's what the answer is! I'm happy if you don't include Diziet, but they seem the best of the nominated characters to tell stories about."

    Summary

    In a galaxy where dozens of sci-fi franchises are smashed together, many civilizations will butt heads, make war, peace, and learn more about the nature of the cosmos. But in the deep future, a threat is coming that no one in the galaxy is aware of. The galaxy only has 250 years to prepare. In the midst of this all, the Tau'ri must rise to the challenge and take up the mantle of the Great Alliance.
    This is the result of a group project on Spacebattles, and anyone wishing to give their two cents can find the threads in the creative writing section.

    Summary

    Post MTMTE-16

    Drift's faith falters as he explores the depths of solitude, tangles with the DJD, and meets an Eccentric alien intelligence. Rated T for a touch of salty language.

    Summary

    'It's a DB 10,' Q agreed, going absent-minded again the way he did, Zakalwe noticed, when the work was more interesting than the people. 'Besides all of the regulars, it's got rockets and a flamethrower and a boot full of caltrops. Speaking,' Q looked up, 'in layman's terms, obviously.'

    Summary

    A small fleet of Culture ships arrives in the Warhammer 40k galaxy and tries to overcome Grimdark while dealing with the Outside Context Problem of Chaos.

    Hilarity ensues. Including, but not limited to, a Special Circumstances archaeological dig on a Necron tombworld, multi-party future sight gambit pileups, serious upgrades to the Tau, fun with the Dark Eldar, some subtle influence in the IoM, and a hell of a lot of dead Tyranids.

    Also includes many fun and exciting alternate endings :).

    New chapters posted in this thread, but all but those in the latest section are here on Ao3.

    Summary

    The world of Special Circumstances is full of unintended consequences. Surprisingly, this is not inherently a bad thing, even if the ethics of the original action were questionable in the first place.
