  1. Summary

    Once upon a time, Tanista started writing an AU for classic MacGyver, Domestic Adventures. In which there's more women and Mac looks after his niece Becky, while keeping up with his secret agent globe-trotting; it's a nice cheerful affair.

    Once upon another time, yours truly had the idea of writing a dark, angst-ridden, poverty-stricken coffee shop AU (for larks, to see if it could be done). One which retained Becky, but kept MacGyver trapped in his hometown with no way out...

    Mission City, Minnesota. Three-way love triangles, a lot of careful minutiae about show continuity. And a rather good bit with a chicken.

  2. Summary

    In the canon of the classic series, MacGyver was an only child and, apart from his grandfather Harry, had no living members of his family left. But what if there was an older sister, one that had moved away from Minnesota to attend college in the West, got married, and had two kids? This is what life might've been like for Mac if he became legal guardian to his teenage niece, Rebecca Ellen (Becky) Grahme, after she loses her parents and older brother in a car accident. No matter what the challenges and adventures are, good or bad, as family Mac and Becky face them together.

  3. Summary

    A fusion of the series "Domestic Adventures" by Tanista with "Ecstasy in Cosmogone" by deepandlovelydark.

    MacGyver has disappeared during a mission, and is presumed dead. His niece Becky believes otherwise, and is determined to find him. Even if she has to go to the ends of the earth.

    Or maybe a bit further below that.

    Summary

    Jemma’s issue with Amortentia isn’t that it’s advertised as a soft drink/love potion hybrid or that its manufacturers claim that it’s made using actual magic or that it’s crazy expensive or that its commercials are aired constantly in between ads for auto insurance and boner pills on the cable news channel that Mack always has on in the common room.

    Well, it’s not just those things.

    -----

    The team accidentally takes a love potion that makes them fall in love with Jemma.

    For some reason, it doesn't affect Fitz.

    Summary

    A series of Sherlolly one-shots, mostly with a winter/holiday theme. Some AU, some in-canon... but mostly fluff with a little bit of everything.
