Les Mis fic: "Beware of Falling Objects"

So apparently when I get into a fandom I still manage to pick a 'ship that all of 10 people are into, if not actively appalled by.  I'm so glad I'm consistent. ;)


Title: Beware of Falling Objects

Author: [personal profile] empty_marrow

Rating: Mature (some language and mild sexual situations)

Characters/Pairings: Cosette/Javert

Word Count: 11,055

Warnings: somewhat irreverent discussions of suicide and religion

Summary: In which Cosette and Javert discover it’s not so easy to burn your bridges, especially if you happen to be standing on one at the time.



Fic can also be found on AO3 here.


one

Inspector, I’m not trying to save your soul. I’m trying to tell you that this bridge is already taken. I was here first, and I’m on kind of a time-crunch, so you’ll just have to find another spot to jump. )


two

She can't help thinking that if her father were here to witness this he'd have a massive guiltgasm and spend the rest of his days trying to atone for every single sin against every living creature in the history of ever. )


three

Life-lessons learned this evening: suicide's not the answer, she has a latent uniform kink, and her daddy issues apparently have daddy issues of their own. )

Holiday Exchange Pimping Post

Hope everyone's having a good holiday and able to sneak in a little downtime! 

I haven't even started to look at all of the Yuletide rec posts - I'm becoming aware of how very few of those tiny fandoms I've even heard of! - but if anyone wants to point me in the direction of a fic I absolutely positively can't miss out on, please drop me a comment and I'll happily go check it out.

I wanted to give a shout-out to a couple of less-publicized holiday exchanges that I'm having fun participating in this year:

*the annual Secret Santa exchange is ongoing at [livejournal.com profile] profiler_fans - I've completely lost track of how long it's been up and running but I'm pretty sure we're scarily close to pushing the 10-year point.   0_o   Participation is dwindling down a bit now, as it does with older fandoms, but there was a small but lovely collection of marvelous things to read and listen to and look at this year, and it's definitely worth going over to check out.

*the first (I think!) annual Once Upon a Time holiday exchange fest at [livejournal.com profile] ouat_exchange is ongoing and posting as I type.  There's quite a nice collection of excellent fics, fanmixes, art/icons and vids, including something by me, a.k.a. Anon Elf until the reveal in early January. *G*

Pimpage Post : Profiler Fans Secret Santa Exchange 2011

It's a little bit mind-boggling to me that it's holiday time again already, although if I'm to believe all the marketing and the commercials and such November is basically getting smushed together with December for one big Christmassy lead-in. 0_o

Happily, though, that means it's time for the 2011 Profiler Fans Secret Santa exchange! \0/ [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood has been her usual awesome self doing all the promotional/organizational stuff, and participants will have a good month-plus to get creative. I know there are some former Believers and SABERS and Skewers on this flist, so what about getting nostalgic and festive and joining in? *poke*

* Just as a reminder to any flisters lurking out there, the Profiler Secret Santa sign-ups are still open for business! Sign-ups will close tomorrow, Sunday November 21st. If you're a former fan who'd like to revisit a little of the holiday fun in a nice friendly setting, please drop in and sign up!

* My Dear Yuletide Author letter is polished up and ready to be read. And I'm ready to go off in search of my recipient! As soon as, you know, the matching is done and I have a recipient. *drums fingers* Is is Yuletide yet?

* It's one of those rare years where I think I can actually spend time doing additional fun holiday stuff *says this quietly with crossed fingers*, so I'm thinking of signing up for [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking. Is anyone else doing it this year?

The Darkship Prompt Challenge

Yeesh, this is my first post in this journal since January. Clearly, I need to get my fangirl on again.

It's fall, holiday fic exchanges are starting to bring the squee and (hopefully) the creative juices - and the Darkship Prompt Challenge looks like it could be kind of fun in a non-deadline-y, up-my-twisted-little alley kind of way:




you just burn
you're bleeding
sick of you
what a mess you made
we're in this together
tie me up, take me down
too much / too rough
wait your turn
it's just skin
second choice
drink up, baby
take everything you've got



I already have a couple of Profiler and Good Wife ideas floating around...any prompts/inspirations, flisters?

Yuletide Reveal!

*cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] empty_marrow*

Now that I have a name to go with my fabulous [livejournal.com profile] yuletide gift, I have to send a special thanks out to [livejournal.com profile] tetsubinatu! She wrote Three Times That Hannah Penhallow got the better of Gabrielle Penhallow and One Time that she didn't", a marvelous take on L M Montgomery's "A Tangled Web" and a re-telling of a "frienemy" relationship that takes a rare sympathetic look at the complexities of Hannah "Nan" Penhallow. I really lucked out with a wonderful Yultide Santa!

And in case anyone's interested in Point Pleasant Christina/Boyd fic, my Yuletide gift for [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood is I Have Not Conquered Everest. Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sinaddict for reading over my first crappy paragraphs, and [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood, it will be nice not to have to hide from you and watch what I say/type anymore! ;)

If anyone wants to pimp their own fics or gifts, please comment away - I'd love to read your recs, and I might even find a new fandom or two to obsess over. *G*

Holiday Pimping Post: Profiler Secret Santa 2009

...wow, the sad thing? Is that my last entry to this journal was for the 2008 Holiday Exchange. 0_o Clearly, I haven't exactly been prolific in the fic department this year.

The awesome [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood is doing another fabulous job organizing this year's exchange - the sign-up is located in this post, and I really want to encourage anyone with even a passing, nostalgic interest in the show to go poke around and see what people are requesting. The requirements aren't horribly strenuous (500 words minimum for fic), and there are a lot of fun, supportive, talented people in the group.

There's a particular need for SABER, Believer, and gen fan participation, and crossovers are allowed, so you can ask for or offer fics and art of that show/character you always thought would be fantastic mixed up with the VCTF gang.

I'm also happy to offer myself up as a beta and partner-in-deadline-angst for anyone who hasn't played in the Profiler sandbox for awhile (or at all). I'm doing this and [livejournal.com profile] yuletide myself this year, so trust me, I'll angst right back and it'll be one big party! *G*

Holiday Pimping Post, part 1: Profiler Secret Santa 2008, baby!

Wow, wasn't it just summer a few days ago?? It's (unbelievably!) time for Secret Santa sign-ups again, so prepare to be pimped at. *G*

Due to general life/work craziness I wasn't able to run the Profiler Secret Santa Exchange this year, but the lurvely [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood has picked it up and is running strong with eleven participants signed up so far - not bad for a relatively obscure/older fandom, but I know there are more people out there who used to play in this sandbox. On this very f-list, even! *meaningful glances*

From the [livejournal.com profile] profiler_fans site:

Only one week left to sign-up for the 2008 Profiler Fans Secret Santa Exchange!

Brighten your holidays and give back to the community by taking part!!!

The Secret Santa Exchange has been a staple of the profiler_fans community for many years now. It's easy to participate. You simply fill out a wishlist of what you'd like to get and what you in turn can give. Then with a bit of holiday magic, names are drawn from a festive mug and Secret Santas are matched.

Gifts can be anything from fic to icons to wallpaper to fanvids and music mixes. Feel like your favorite ship doesn't get enough attention? Sign-up and put it on your wishlist. Request certain lyrics or settings. Ask for a holiday romance or an angsty summer in Paris - this is a chance to make your wishes known and to brighten someone's holiday as well! It doesn't matter if you're an active member or a lurker - everyone who loves Profiler is welcome!!!

Sign-ups are here - please pimp this out to anyone/any comm you can think of, and come play!

Obscurity!Mix #2: and everything you love will break - Profiler, Jack/Samantha

After much interference from pesky RL I've finally finished my Obscurity!Mix for Sam/Jack, wherein their lives are chronicled via the obscure crap on my iTunes as requested by the lurvely [livejournal.com profile] m_ravensblood.

All lead-in quotes are from episodes of "Profiler" and, IMO, most of the songs and lyrics can be as skewed or non-skewed as the listener chooses to make them. Except for the decidedly-skewed cracky ficlet that leads in to the bonus track, because "Into the Dark" is just too damned angsty to end with, even for me. ;)

Drop a comment if you want a) any song uploaded individually off the .zip or b) an obscurity!mix for your own character/ship/whatnot...I have tons of weird-ass music that hasn't been touched yet!

Obscurity!Mix #1: Misery Loves Company - Profiler, Grace/Jack

This is the first of my Obscurity!Mixes, wherein I challenge people to challenge me to compile a fanmix based upon the random bits of obscure musical crap on my playlists. *G* If anyone wants to join in the challenge, drop a comment here so I can spread more of the unknown-tunes lurve.

[livejournal.com profile] velvetwhip requested a mix for Grace/Jack, one of her favorite 'ships in the Profilerverse and one that's beginning to strike me as having lots of shiny train-wrecky potential. When I listened to this mix my first thought was "wow, Grace sounds pretty pissed off through this whole thing," but really, if a girl has to put up with a mopey serial killer who messes up her lab and obsesses over her blonde office-mate, she can be as pissy as she wants on my iPod. ;)

Let me know if you want any individual songs uploaded, and enjoy!

Fic: The Alpha Male (part 1) - Heroes, Sylar/Claire, Mr. Muggles, PG-13

So, apparently there's this pretty awesome show out there called "Heroes," and I'm only finding out a year or so after the fact. Obscure Fandom Girl is nothing if not consistently dense. ;)

Erm, what is it with me and my kink for hooking up serial killers and mouthy teens?? I think Claire and Sylar could have an interesting dynamic together if their paths ever crossed again. The way I envision it, things would be hot and angsty and bittersweet.

...the way I actually wrote it is, of course, a whole different little kind of crack-monkey. *G*


The Alpha Male (part 1)

Author: Robin Nance

Fandom/Characters: Heroes, Claire/Sylar, Mr. Muggles

Story Type: Humor/Romance

Rating: PG-13 (language, little bit of violence and suggestive situations)

Summary: Six months after Kirby Plaza, Claire’s had enough of the boredom that comes with being normal. Sylar’s goal is to avoid being ordinary at all costs. Be careful what you wish for….

Spoilers: Erm, all of season one and bits and pieces of the first three episodes of season two. After that it all goes to hell in the proverbial AU-handbasket. *G*

Disclaimer: Pfft, do you remember an episode where this even came close to happening? Obviously, they’re still not my toys. ;)
