  1. Summary

    Prompt: "Jurassic World/Harry Potter, Owen Grady + the raptor squad, so it turns out that dinosaurs created with snake DNA can speak parseltongue – which makes Owen training the raptors a little easier (and may change things with the Indominus completely)"

    Owen Grady speaks Raptor, but it's a language he learned through immersion, the same way his girls learned English. Owen Grady also speaks Parseltongue, but that's because he's a wizard with a bonus gift. It doesn't change a lot about his work, until it really, really changes a lot about his work.

  2. Summary

    Based on the Locket prompt by Para, here, with pairing borrowed from Lilithqueen's "You're dating the HELP?!" series.

    The plot of Girl Genius is a delicate and intricate machine, and I'm sitting here throwing rocks in the gears. Please join me in rarepair hell for the adventures of Miss Agatha Clay as she falls hard for the dashing Jägermonster Jorgi! Watch as Agatha discovers the unique charms of sharklike grins! Laugh as Jorgi explains why Jägers are so irresistable to de vimminz! Despair as certain inevitable plot mechanics roll on without us! Facepalm at irony so thick you could spread it on toast!

    An AU that grew legs and ran away with me: What exactly are the implications of a hidden Heterodyne falling hard for a Jäger and refusing to get involved in any stupid love triangles with more politically (and socially, and possibly ethically) appropriate suitors?

     

    I will keep writing this until I feel like I'll run it up a lamppost if I go any further. Installment length may vary wildly. Working title for Part 9: Show.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The one where Lucy mistakes the Creature for a soldier when he rescues her (that I kind of wish were ten or twenty or a hundred times the length it is because I want good things for Lucy and the Creature but it's a little nibble of something delicious just the length it is).

    It is also the one where I remembered the description of the Creature as 'must have been a soldier' but I then forgot it and my brain decided it must've been some sort of Austen crossover AU, which explains why it took me years to FIND it again.

    Summary

    The overworked project manager on the redesign of the Imperial Lambda-class shuttle gets surprisingly competent feedback from an unknown official on Coruscant. She promptly decides that anyone bored enough to do a technical review of their own free will should be found proper employment for their own good.

    Her correspondent has been missing the opportunity to tinker with machinery. It gives him something to do between hunting down rebels.

    The one where I kind of end up rooting for Vader, if only so the viewpoint character keeps her job.

    Summary

    Being the account of Captain Jade Hasegawa, Federal Worlds Starfleet Ranger Corps, her landing in the North of Westeros in the year 298 AC and her exciting adventures dealing with the politics and personalities of the Seven Kingdoms as they transition from peace to war.

    Oh yeah, and the ice demons from beyond that want to wipe out all life and warmth. Them too.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The one where A Song of Ice and Fire gets mixed with some homebrew Starfleet future-history; the plot gets derailed and reshaped, the worldbuilding is delicious and crunchy, the existential threats are taken more seriously, and it's it's so funny that you don't notice you've read hundreds of thousands of words until you suddenly run out of words to read.

    Summary

    “TC,” Skywarp says, “I’m, like, ninety percent sure that humans don’t have interface cables.”

    Thundercracker squawks and almost knocks him over trying to get the script out of his hands.

    The one with the seeker/human/seeker threesome that leaves me wanting more every single time I read it.

    Summary

    In the spring of 1930, Wilder Mayer's stepfather dies, and Wild is summoned back from Agricultural School in Lubbock to take the reins of the Meyer-Platter farm just outside of Lea, Texas. Over the course of the next five years, Wild must negotiate not just the politics of his little farm community, but also an increasingly mystical and complex relationship with the old town church, closed for many years and a source of mystery within Lea.

    The worst storms of the Dust Bowl are raging across the country, but they always seem to miraculously pass by, leaving Lea's farms unscathed. Instead, Lea is subject to strange happenings: the birth of Wild's witchy daughter Iscah, the rise of the cult that calls itself the Church of the Redeemed Abandoned, and a series of rare but gruesome murders, culminating in an attack on the heart of Wild's family itself -- and a final encounter with the church that has protected Lea for so long.

    The one where Sam had a weird dream and turned it into a fantastic little story about Texas during the dustbowl, and the cost of good things.
