    Summary

    Cam is still struggling to come to terms with the betrayal by Donna and the others over voting against her about Mutiny and the IPO. It’s an effort to even get out of bed these days. But Tom forces her, reasoning that it’s Hallowe’en and the kids will be out in force.
    To her amazement, her ex, Joe MacMillan knocks on her door and wants her help in finding Ryan, the brilliant coder who’s now in trouble with the law.
    Things have changed a lot for them both since their last meeting in August, their usual frosty relations are surprisingly friendly. Is it because the pressure's off as Cam’s married or is there something else still between them? (S03E08)

    Summary

    Updated - Chapter 11 - more of Joe's POV.
    Cam's been working at Cardiff for a week, she's ill-prepared for the responsibility of creating a new BIOS even without the added pressure of a lawsuit from IBM.
    She's already had run-ins with her sharply-suited new boss, Joe MacMillan and is less than impressed with him and his methods, but there's something about him that she finds hard to resist.
    She's out of her depth and 'stuck', she'd taken advantage of Joe's offer of help before, but she's determined not to fall for him. Instead, she intends to make him bend to her will.
    Let the 'games' begin.

    Sets the scene and explains many of the complex nuances between these two.
    Feeding my obsession. Hope you enjoy.
    Warning: mature - sex scenes are graphic, will warn in chapters.

    Summary

    “That’s what you sleep in?” Cameron asks, waving her hand in the direction of Donna. Her face is already pressed back against her pillow and her eyes are slipping closed. Donna looks down at her outfit, polka dot patterned pyjama pants and a plain black t-shirt, and sighs. “I thought you’d wear something - skimpier,” Cameron continues and Donna is pretty sure she’s mostly asleep when she talks next, “Like pyjamas that people say are pyjamas but we all know is actually lingerie.”

    “That’s what you picture me in?” Donna presses.

    ----

    or, the AU where Gordon and Donna get divorced before they move to California. Loosely follows canon after that.

    Summary

    Reader-insert -stories about my favorite guys (both fictional and real, see tags). Some of these "oneshots" have sequels and some don't. These stories are roller coaster -rides of romance, cliffhangers, drama and conflicts, spiced up with feelings (everything from love and butterflies to angst, confusion and hate) and fluff.

    !!!ATTENTION/WARNING!!!

    * I am ONLY writing about the subjects/characters that I love because this is a hobby of mine; I write because I love telling stories.
    * I am NOT writing about real people anymore.
    * I am not a native English-speaker, so there are grammar/spelling mistakes. I do my best.
    * Yes, I write dialogue with "-" and it is not going to change. Sorry.
    * Some of the stories grow very long and I am not writing equally about every tagged character, this is due to my own personal interests.
    * Plenty of elves! Nowadays mostly just elves because I love them and their world is awesome!
    * Some of the stories have some smutty fluff.

    No requests, sorry.

    Summary

    “When did you realize you were gay?” Haley asks.

    Cameron nearly hits her head on the bed frame they’re trying to build. Donna would be better at this, but she’s on a business trip, somewhere in New York doing interviews about how great Phoenix could be. Cameron would much rather be here, in Haley’s bedroom with the windows open because it’s warming up again, the sun shining through the blinds.

    “I’m not gay,” Cameron says, slowly. She doesn’t know the protocol here. They all assumed, but Haley hasn’t told them yet and Donna is the one who read all the books about what to do when your kid is gay.

    Summary

    “You’re such a douchebag.” You get out.

    “A douchebag whose gonna be fucking you in about ten minutes.” He smirks easily. “See if I can’t dislodge that stick you got stuck up your tight ass.”

    You scoff. Mouth flooded with whiskey taste. “Please. You look like you couldn’t find my clit in the dark with a flashlight, two hands, and a map.” You snipe at him.

    “Try me.” He dares with confidence that makes your knees wobble. Both hands flat to the bar now. Spread before you. Like a stag rising to full height. Taking the brunt of a challenge.

    Summary

    Cameron really doesn’t want to fuck this up again. She was being honest when she said that working with Donna was the most fun she’s ever had, that she’s Cameron’s anchor, best partner, knows her brain and the way it works inside and out, and still wants her around. Again. After everything, they both still want to do this all over again.

    That has to mean something monumental. Cameron can’t go on and fuck it up just because Donna is the hottest woman she’s ever known, and she keeps thinking about what it would feel like to press her down into a bed and kiss every inch of her skin.
