    Summary

    This is a crossover between Doctor Who and “Tam Lin,” the ancient ballad from the Scottish Borders. It also uses plot elements from The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope (1974) and the movie The Wicker Man (1973). If you’re familiar with these or any similar stories about the tithe, this may be easy to predict, but I enjoyed writing it.
    This is set in Season 2 of the reboot, at Halloween, somewhere between “Rise of the Cybermen” and “Doomsday.”

    When I got this idea recently, I thought it wasn’t worth writing because this exact fic must exist many times over on AO3. I found only 4 results on AO3 for “Tam Lin” and “Doctor Who." And none involve the Tenth Doctor or Rose. I’m surprised because it maps onto the characters and themes so well.

    Summary

    After their dinner at the Ritz, Aziraphale and Crowley finally move in together. They try hard to find date night activities they both enjoy. They get paranoid, though, fearing that agents from Heaven and Hell could find out about their relationship. They also get especially testy whenever humans get basic facts wrong, whether they’re handling artifacts or theorizing about the cosmos. These squabbles let the angel and demon understand themselves and each other a little better.

    Summary

    After Ed saved Stede's life at least twice in S1, I’d like Stede to save Ed’s life and try to win him back. Obviously the writers would have the time and skill to write it better than I can! I was trying for canon levels of absurdity and sentiment.

    humor, canon-typical language, violence, and anachronisms; threats of violence, post season 1, season 1 spoilers

    Summary

    Several chapters/vignettes of general Breaking Bad re-imaginings with analysis. I couldn't decide whether to write an essay or fan fic, so I attempted both. Both the notes and the fiction are equally important to this work. The analyses should appear in the notes at the end of each chapter. I'll edit if they don't.

    Summary

    Note: Over 12 years after writing "In the Convent," my fanfic of James Joyce's "Araby," I finally wanted to write a sequel to my earlier story. It is set decades later. It's ekphrasis (detailed description of visual art in writing) that also interpolates Joyce's story and St. Teresa of Avila's writings.

    Trigger warnings: sexual repression; lots of compulsory Catholicism and allo-, cis-, heteronormativity; sexual assault/abuse (all implied and ambiguous, not explicit, partly because of the repression). I also tried to address the Orientalist (racist and fetishizing) themes that the original uses.

    Summary

    Joyce's nameless character of "Mangan's sister" from his story "Araby" is the object of the male narrator's adolescent infatuation. Here, I named her Siobhan and tried to imagine her voice, which is absent from Joyce's story. I attempted a feminist retelling to rectify a common criticism of Joyce's story. The James Joyce Quarterly, which does not usually publish fiction, rejected this story with generous feedback, which I appreciated. I wrote this as a 19-year-old college sophomore in spring 2009.
