    Summary

    He sees Westminster Abbey. Instead of a burst of civic and national pride, it feels like someone has just punched him in the chest. Harry stumbles, nearly falls over, and he can suddenly see bright Southern sunlight, he can smell the scent of blood all over him, his shoulder aches where someone’s just stabbed him, there are bullet bruises all over his back. There’s someone screaming in the distance and he can see flat, brown eyes facing him down the barrel of a silenced gun.

    He winds up crouched, retching on the floor of a public loo, head between his knees, breathing high and fast through his teeth while Merlin’s voice, quiet and calm and grounding in his ear tells him just stay there, Arthur, someone’s coming, and someone comes.

    Summary

    It was after Mark finally fell asleep after a whole twenty-four hours of worrying about his loved ones being dragged through the media mud that the rest of the crew convene a secret meeting in the common area. They sit around staring at each other in silence, before Vogel finally utters a single word.

    “Spartacus.”

    Slowly, everyone else nods.

    “Spartacus,” the crew of Ares 3 murmurs softly.

    Summary

    Harry's brains dried in the hot Kentucky sun. A fly landed on an exposed piece of his skull for a few seconds and then buzzed off. His blood seeped into the dust. In the distance sirens began to wail, and the crisp, elegant click of patent leather oxfords on concrete drew to a halt beside his ruined corpse.

    “Oh dear,” someone said sadly, although Harry wasn't alive to hear it. He heard, saw, felt, and was, nothing.

    Death is not another country. Death is the deep blue sea.

    Or, the one in which Harry is officially dead, actually a wizard, occasionally a small dog, and utterly unable to keep his distance from his young successor.

    Summary

    Arthur had been on this planet for nearly fourteen years now and everyone still insisted on treating him like a child.

    Crossover between Inception and 3rd Rock from the Sun. Probably you have to have watched 3rd Rock at least once or twice for this to make sense, but who hasn't? Inception is definitely required viewing, though. Ha.

    I should also warn that I could have chosen Inception-goes-to-the-doofy-sitcom-place, but in fact I went the other way on that. I know. It surprised me too.

    Now available as podfic here.

    Summary

    Harry doesn't hate it. He'd go on suppressants if he did. Yes, it's a mild inconvenience, but it's a manageable one. If Harry's honest, it's even enjoyable. Though there are certainly other ways he'd rather spend a weekend vacation, he does rather enjoy having a few days to luxuriate in desire.

    Summary

    Gunshots rang out, causing Eggsy to flinch against Daisy. He peered out warily, and blinked. The bikers were dead. One had his head shattered, his bike on its flank several feet away, shot right off. The two women were dead, in a heap of metal and scrap, their chests bloody cavities. Eggsy could hear the last biker, revving away, shrieking, and then a tall man stepped into view, and for a moment Eggsy had to rub his eyes in disbelief.

    The stranger was wearing a suit, a gods-be-fucking-damned suit, if dusty at the cuffs and the heels, the shirt softened from too many washes and faintly discoloured. He was wearing a satchel at his hip, and had a pair of black-rimmed glasses on, with a scar over one eye, and seemed to be in his mid to late fifties, at least, broad-shouldered, handsome. In his hands was an M4 carbine, which he raised efficiently to his shoulder, dropping to one knee in a fluid, graceful move, aiming and firing a short burst. Distantly, to the left, there was a dying scream.

    Summary

    The Weeping Angels, Eggsy reads on the stolen Torchwood intel. Aliens that pose as statues, and kill their victims by sending them back in time and feeding off their years not lived in the present. The politest psychopaths in the universe, a note reads, scrawled in what looks like a doctor’s chicken scratch on the edge of the page by someone who clearly had a perverse sense of humour. A one way trip, the report concludes; you get transported by the angels, and it’s the slow road back to the present for you.

    Eggsy lays his head back on the wall, takes stock of his situation. He’s lost 30 years - three years more than his entire lifespan up ’til now - in the blink of an eye, and now he’s stuck here, in 1988. Three years before he’s even born. Arthur, the prick, is sure to be heading up the Kingsmen, and Merlin, if he’s even there would be…20, maybe. Fuck, so fucking young.

    Shite, even Harry’d only be…

    Alive, Eggsy thinks, and finds himself sitting down hard from where his knees can’t hold him. This is 1988, and Harry’s 23, and alive.

    Suddenly, being stuck in 1988 doesn’t seem so bad.

    Or, the one where love means changing the future. Harry/Eggsy, Time Travel Fix-It.

    Summary

    Mark was soaping for a second time – well past regulation length for a shower, but he figured he had some shower time built up – when he felt the air motion and heard the squeak of the shower door open. He smiled as another body joined his, squished together in the little shower cubicle.

    "Jesus, Watney..." Rick murmured, fingertips skating across Mark's protruding ribs.

    Summary

    The Shire is spread out at Bilbo’s feet like a green duvet that stretches out as far as the eye can see. The air is full of birdsong and the indistinct murmur of a small town; conversation, laughter, and squabbling all blending together into a single cohesive whole.

    Bilbo stands on young strong legs without thinking and takes three shaking steps away from the polished flagstone that makes up the front step of Bag End.

    There is Farmer Maggot driving a herd of geese to market and there, there is Hamfast Gamgee tramping down Bagshot Row looking like a tween again with a flask of Gamgee rotgut poking out his back pocket. He is surrounded by faces and voices he knows, all of whom should be older and altered. Many of which should be dead.

    ‘Is this the undying land?’ Bilbo wonders and pinches himself. It feels real. It feels too real. If feels… familiar.

    Bilbo gets sent back from the Undying Lands for one last try. Sometimes perspective makes all the difference.

    Summary

    In a colony of Hobbits far off into Deep Space, away from the territories of Men, Elves, and other large noisy creatures there lives a ship; not an old and soulless salvage crawler with a manual control yoke and a hyper-drive core that is constantly on the fritz, nor yet sleek military corvette with guns instead staterooms and harsh, Spartan interior to match the harsh and Spartan brain inside it; this ship is a retired courier vessel that once served the diplomatic corps and that means comfort.

    Bilbo Baggins was born 150 years ago to Bungo and Belladonna Baggins of the Shire colony located out in the then newly-populated Yavanna system. The colony was new in those days and the Baggins were a prominent family within the community and when Belladonna Baggins conceived her first son he was identified in utero as a prime candidate for Central Communication’s BB Ship program.

    This is, of course, a very polite and sanitized way of saying that a mere five hundred years prior, Bilbo probably wouldn’t have survived to see his first birthday.
