    Summary

    She had squeezed pity from Ida. Wendy thought about what it would be like to be a real temp at Jolly Fats. Thought about staying behind as The Middleman went to fight the strange evil of the day; she couldn't bear to watch him walk away even in her imagination. Sitting around for hours or days while he might be getting killed wasn't a sacrifice she could handle. She'd be breaking into the armory and running off to be with him, or get tranq darted trying.

    Summary

    He used autopilot so he could apply pressure to his arm, which was bleeding steadily. The smell of his own burnt flesh made him ill. The absence of Wendy was harshest in his downtime, especially in the car. Her banter was often unhelpful. Her work ethic waned from time to time. She would be the one who stood looking over his shoulder as Ida fixed him up, making yucky faces and telling him how he should have blasted all the bad guys, even if they were cookie-making elves at their day jobs.

    Summary

    He pushed her hair off her neck to prod and worry started pulsing behind his light brown eyes. They should be happy eyes, she mused. He did enough for the world to deserve happiness. There must be a ray gun for giddy joy. The 10 year old pig-tailed you-bought-me-a-pony ray or the 8 year old boy best-birthday-ever blaster. They looked like tiny caramel sundaes from way up high, light brown centre on the vanilla ice cream whites of his eyes, a black cherry perched on top.

    Summary

    When a man's dead wife is used as part of an art exhibit, without consent, The Middleman and Wendy investigate.

    I no longer recall why I used a famous name for the husband, but this Will Eisner is not the Will Eisner. Archiving here for safekeeping, and so I can think about continuing some of these small fandom fics that lasted longer than the shows that inspired them. Unfinished.

    Summary

    Wendy gets a career opportunity she wasn't looking for, then gets called a cheap, pregnant slut.

    I don't think all the missions are destined to be violent. Some have to be weird, awkward, demoralizing and the opportunity for some professional sabotage. Put simply, some days it feels like you're working. It's not really shippy, more acknowledging the two guys in Wendy's life.

    Summary

    The year is 2005. Lara Croft is searching for her mother, who she thinks is alive but transported to the fabled Avalon (that is, after the events of TR: Legend, but before and concurrent with TR: Underworld). The Middleman and his protege, Wendy "Dubbie" Watson are seeing an uptick in Ancient magic awakening, and are dealing with this as their employer, the Organization Too Secret To Know (O2STK) directs. Aya Brea, still an agent of the Mitochondrial Investigation and Suppression Team (now part of Homeland Security following 9/11), is seeing new outbreaks of Neo-Mitochondrial Creatures (NMC's). How do all these things fit together? Well....

    Summary

    “So once I get all bundled up, what’s with the trip to the South Pole?  Killer penguins?  Evil Santa?  Evil Santa with a tuxedo-clad army of evil penguins?”

    “No, thank goodness.”  He did a small, dignified shudder.  “You can imagine the amount of suppression we had to do to ensure March of the Penguins was a moving nature study instead of a dread-filled, all-too-real account of how close the world came to an emperor penguin Napoleon.  No, Dubbie, there’s a research station in dire need of assistance.  They’ve unearthed a slab of ice.”

    He stopped there.  Wendy blinked at him.

    “Um, is there an illuminating postscript coming?  Because ice in Antarctica doesn’t feel like breaking news.”

    “Ice that was the deep, red-veined black of igneous lava.”
