Title: Vigil
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters: Dan, Rorschach, Hollis cameo, misc bad guys.
Date written: 2010-2014 hahaha wow I SUCK
Summary: The most important skill a masked vigilante can cultivate is how to fall and come right back up. When Nite Owl and Rorschach run into a trigger-happy gang, Nite Owl finds he's able to push that skill to the extreme--even if he has no idea how or why. AKA, the one where Dan just won't stay dead and Rorschach is Freaking Out.
Notes: Originally for a KM prompt asking for 'Highlander-style immortality', though I didn't actually make it a crossover. No swords and shit here, just a very confused owl.
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13 I think. A lot of blood and injuries and deaaaattthhhhhh. Some of it's temporary, some of it's not. Language, some offensive dialogue.

Chapter 6: Sacrificial Creatures
It's just enough time to hone in on the man holding the knife before he lurches out of the shadows. It's not enough time to actually dodge.  )

Chapter 5: Incantatum
In the end, they wind up around the table again, running through a pot of coffee as the last unraveling rays of sunset spend themselves against the skyline. )

Chapter 4: Periculous mortum
"I promise you," Daniel says, forceful, and it disgusts Rorschach how willing he is to believe whatever comes next. "It'll be okay." )

Chapter 3: Forensics
Rorschach could be deaf except that he can hear his own breath, and it takes a moment for him to remember why he is here, without his mask, sleeping in this tomb-silent house. )

It must have all been a dream. That's the only thing that makes sense, the only idea with enough reality-roughened edges for him to get a handhold on. )

Chapter 1: Penance
Rorschach's already whirlwinded through denial and bargaining, his throat sore from all his pleas and promises, dropping empty and unanswered to the city asphalt. )
etherati: B&W Dan and Ror in front of Owlship, from GN (Default)
A random prompt on Tumblr asked for Minutemen zombies; I wrote the promised vignette but there seems to have been interest for more? So I started writing more, and wow, I am having so much fun. But I'd like to keep this informal, so, see the comment section below for pieces of this as I finish them!

Title: A Winter's Tale
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Hollis/Sally, Dan/Rorschach
Date Written: 2011
Summary: A generation apart, two heroes learn about proper winter attire, offers of warmth, and how to say yes. Or: Dan learns from Hollis's mistakes.
Rating/Warnings: Hard PG-13/Soft R? Fluff, peril, cocoa, and Dan being a brazen little owl.
Notes:  For [livejournal.com profile] tortoisegirl, for [livejournal.com profile] wm_secretsanta :D Tried to nail down a few things on the list, sorry I couldn't hit them all!

The first Nite Owl doesn’t like to dwell on it—nothing can be done for it and obsessing just makes it seem worse—and Sal will never admit to it, but winter can be a really, really rough time to be in their line of work. )

Title: Five Days
Fandom: Watchmen Z!verse/Left4Dead
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach/Dan, some L4D guest cameos.
Date Written: 2011
Summary: "It takes five days to change," says the graffiti. When you don't know if you're immune or not, it's a hell of a long time to wait.
Rating/Warnings: R for language. Warning for attempted suicide, but under the circumstances it's pretty understandable.
Notes:  For [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo, which I have so far utterly failed at. 'zombie apocalypse'. So of course I had to take my already-sick-of-zombies zverse boys and throw the L4D verse at them. D:

The door slams shut under their combined weight, an impact they can feel in their bones. )

etherati: (WM - R - face2)
Title: Fracture
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach
Date Written: 2011
Summary: A fractured heart has room for only one kind of justice.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 mostly, but there's some pretty nasty violence and coarse language.
Notes:  KM fill, for the scenario that Dan doesn't spring Rorschach from jail, and he is still there when he hears of 'Nite Owl's murder, with no way to verify which Nite Owl it was.

Walter Kovacs will remember it as the day that this horrible city finally managed to break him. )

etherati: (WM - R - fade)
Title: Rabbit Holes and Four-Winged Pigeons
Fandom: Watchmen/Inception fusion/au
Characters/Pairings: Walter, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Is it really a deathwish when you're just trying to wake up?
Rating/Warnings: PG-13.

He doesn't remember waking up but he still feels like he's been falling, for hours and hours, falling a very long way. )
etherati: (WM - R/D - surprise)
Okay, so, sometimes I write these things for KM, not serious fic, just... Id fic. Because the prompt made me go HNNGG WANNNNT and I had no literary shame that day. Strangely, not usually porn! In this case, H/C and UST abound. Not high works of literature, just food for the ever-hungry Id.

Title: For Your Own Good
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Dan has an accident; Rorschach saves him but thinks he's suicidal. And reacts accordingly.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, a little triggery for Ror's thoughts on suicide.
Notes:  KM fill, from a prompt back on KM 1. Ollllld school.

It’s dark already when Rorschach puts his shoulder into the massive door of the warehouse, picks his way down the subway labyrinth toward the Owl’s Nest. )

Title: Liability
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Rorschach claims to have no weakness. Someone proves him wrong by finding it.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, some rough language.

"Not so fuckin' tough now, are ya?" the thug asks, last man standing but it doesn't matter, because his sudden advantage is undeniable. )

Title: Between the Brushstrokes
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Dan, Rorschach, Adrian, Laurie, Manhattan in pt 1, Dan/Ror.
Date Written: 2010-2011
Summary: A lot happens in the in-between spaces; in the tiny intervals of time in which no one is watching, we are free. Dan and Rorschach face the future more head-on than they expected; Adrian learns about regret and what happens when you're wrong.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 in general, some language. Philosophy, violence, twilight zone bullshit, time travel, pretentious metaphors, and Waffle House.
Notes: Yet ANOTHER kinkmeme prompt. Post-GN fixit. Complete.

Sunset over the Adirondacks; some derelict siding, far past any highway signs or trail head markers. October. )

The night creeps up on silent feet, settles around them like so much black goosedown, smothering. )

Title: Inevitability
Fandom: Final Fantasy 7
Characters/Pairings: Reno/random informant.
Date Written: 2010.
Summary: Any process, once set in motion, will inevitably draw to its close. Hostages, interrogation, and phallic symbolism.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for no actual sex, but hooboy are the implications kind of filthy. Also: violence, and what sexual interpretation is there is pretty noncon.
Notes: For Kink Bingo amnesty(prompt: 'guns').

Fingers split the blind-slats, would let the light in if there were any light out there at all. )
etherati: (Misc - Death)
Title: Cat's Cradle
Fandom: Moon
Characters/Pairings: Sam
Date Written: 2010
Summary: When memory runs forwards as well as back, it's called insanity.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, minor language.
Notes: Short, nothing groundbreaking, just noodling around. Somewhat spoilery, if you can make sense of it. Also, whoa, what the eff, something that isn't Watchmen? How did that happen?

He has been here for six days. )

etherati: (WM - D - broken)
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters: Dan, Rorschach, Adrian in #2.
Date Written: 2010
Summary: 3 Captcha fics, in order: post-Keene Dan, Karnak AU, and some years-down-the-line Z!verse happyfluff.
Rating/Warnings: PG, no warnings! Amazingly. Art after the third fic by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] jackiemei.

#1
Title:
Vision
Prompt: 'cornea 197-8'
It's easy to forget. )

#2
Title:
PSYCHIC SQUID MIGRAINE what is this i don't even
Prompt: 'mind thwacked'
New York shows a minute to midnight, and it's irrelevant, because the only time that matters is thirty-five minutes passed. )

#3
Title:
As Time Goes By
Prompt: 'grey suffuses'
There are many ways their time together could end. )
