etherati: (Misc - Death)
Title: Unaccountably Peckish
Fandom: Echo Bazaar
Characters/Pairings: OC, OC's pet weasel
Date Written: 2011
Summary: There are a lot of things about the Neath that you do not know yet. Best to learn them quickly.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for violence, flowery prose, and second-person POV. D: 
Notes:  For [info]zombie_fest . Prompt was: The Tomb Colonists. On All Hallow's Eve, the bandages come off.
Additional notes: Character is an OC because the source is a game in which you create your own character. This isn't my character; just an random denizen of the Neath. In accordance with failbettergames' fanfiction policy, here is a linkback to the game: Echo Bazaar.

You've been here for eight months, and in all that time, friend, you've only died once. )
etherati: (HT - guerrero pwned)
Title: Aunt Gracie's Funeral
Fandom: Human Target
Characters/Pairings: Guerrero, Chance 
Date Written: 2011
Summary: A job left only half finished will always come back to bite you. Literally, sometimes.
Rating/Warnings: R for language, implied violence.
Notes:  One-shot, doesn't go anywhere. For [ profile] zombie_fest. Prompt was: "Again? I thought that shit had been eradicated in South America?"

The phone rings. )

etherati: (WM - R - newsstand)
Title: Columba carnivora
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Z!Rorschach/Dan
Date Written: 2011
Summary: Dan gets a bird named after him, and Rorschach hits a home run. AKA, the one with the zombie pigeons.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, nonsense.
Notes: Zombie!verse. Utter silliness. For [ profile] zombie_fest .
He's been staring the pigeon down all morning. )
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 - R/D - stakeout)
Title: Killing Time
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Z!Rorschach/Dan
Date Written: 2010
Summary: A bank robbery interrupted leaves Nite Owl and Rorschach trapped in a bank vault until morning, and with the possibility of concussion looming, Nite Owl must be kept awake.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, silliness, snark, fluff.
Notes: Zombie!verse, late summer of 1976. For KM, but not all that sexy. The flood of porn has come to an end, all ye rejoice.

Rorschach’s been prowling the perimeter for the last thirty minutes, faint luminescence of the alarm lights enough for him to see by, bare fingers skirting along seams and under panels and edges of metal trim. )

etherati: (WM - R - ending)
Title: Strangers
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan, Hollis
Date Written: 2009-2010
Summary: Something's only truly lost when all the lines are cut; even a single thread can lead the way home.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13.
Notes: KM fill, Dan goes into deep cover in a cult for investigative reasons and needs help getting back out. Out-of-sequence narrative.

Where does all this dirt come from, and why are the hallways so long, and should he recognize the face suddenly hovering in front of him, shifting like steam over black tar asphalt on the coldest days of the year? )
etherati: (WM - Misc - adrian & bubs)
Title: And I Will Repay
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Adrian, Dan, but no pairings.
Date Written: 2009
Summary: The vengeance of the mass-murdered and forgotten cannot be held off indefinitely.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13. Violence, obvs.
Notes: "Unforeseen consequences of worldwide irradiation." Zombies, but not related to the usual WM zombie sandbox. Written for [ profile] zombie_fest .

Sensationalist journalism, he thinks, and that has its own implications. )
etherati: (WM - R/D - partners)
Fandom: Watchmen
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Captcha/Misc/Commentfic Ficlets. #1 is a captcha, #2 is from a prompt for 'random fluff', #3 is a comment fic from [ profile] comment_fic. #1 and #2 are z!verse, #1 and #3 are srs bsns, #2 is ridiculous crack.
Rating/Warnings: PG.

Prompt: 'january repays'
He stops, leans against a lamppost, hunches his coat tighter around him. Old habits. )

Prompt: Generalized fluff.
The spoon falls from his mouth to the table with a clatter. )

Prompt: 'never in so many words'
It could just as easily be a broken axle in Archie's hydraulics he's reaching to repair. )
etherati: (WM - R - Face in corner)
Title: Reasons
Fandom: Crossover/AU: Watchmen / Inglourious Basterds
Characters/Pairings: Walter, Dan, IB guys.
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Everyone has different reasons for the things they choose to do.
Rating/Warnings: R, for violence/gore.
Notes: Kinkmeme fic, from a while back. Narrative style was VERY experimental. Please note that: A) I am aware that the movie was an oversimplification of complicated historical events and I know that there is reality and there is fiction and that they are not the same. B) Narrative voice is not the voice of the author. C) Wartime doesn’t tend to be very PC, so pardon the period-appropriate derogatory-ness. I’m a lousy Mick myself, if that’s any consolation.

Well, resourcefulness like that ought to be encouraged, and viciousness like that is just begging to be channeled. )

FIC: Luck

etherati: (WM - Z - luck)
Title: Luck
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Z!Ror, Dan
Date Written: 2009
Summary: When you have unconventional things to be thankful for, be thankful in unconventional ways.
Rating/Warnings: PG.
Notes: Zombieverse Thanksgiving, because I am a dork. Set just before the end of NaB, technically.

Good intentions only stretch so far.  )

etherati: (WM - Misc - Gyre)
Title: The Widening Gyre
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. A ghost story, for your Halloween enjoyment.
Rating/Warnings: Probably R for imagery.
Notes: Kinkmeme fic originally; 'Dan and Ror in a legitimately haunted house', but it's gen, so not kinky.

Right now they all look like bloodstains, heavy and dark. Any other time he’d call it imagination; here, in this place, it’s a very bad sign. )

Title: The Widening Gyre
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. A ghost story, for your Halloween enjoyment.
Rating/Warnings: Probably R for imagery.
Notes: Kinkmeme fic originally; 'Dan and Ror in a legitimately haunted house', but it's gen, so not kinky.

“You know, if this were a book or a movie, this place would be haunte–” )
etherati: (WM - Z - something to lose)
Fandom: Watchmen
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Two AU Mashup ficlets, one very old, one new. The first is a pileup of all the supernatural/transformation AUs on the kinkmeme at the time it was written. The second is Z!Rorschach and a version of Dan from the fic 'A Poor Hand Played Well' in which Dan loses his finances, his house, etc, and has to stay with Rorschach. In-jokes abound in both of these, sorry.
Rating/Warnings: PG, pretty tame all around.

Tales from the Twilight-Zone Corner
“…what’re you in for?” Dan finally asks, conceding defeat, trying to play it like a joke. )


When he opens them again, Rorschach’s in front of him, expectant and somehow more still than he’s ever been. )
etherati: (WM - D - archie)
Title: Mirrors to Windows
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan(kind of?)
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Turning mirrors to windows, we stop seeing ourselves and see other people instead. What if there's nothing there?
Rating/Warnings: PG.
Notes: For the kinkmeme, prompt was that Dan was a figment of someone's imagination. AU. Edited slightly. Thought I was all out of sad, but I guess not.

They meet in 1965. )

etherati: (WM - R/D - FLIPPINGOUT)
Title: Regrets
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Nite Owl
Date Written: 2009
Summary: They died together, that night. The masks survived.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for imagery/violence.
Notes: AU, 60's. Not sure where this came from really. Just a nastydark little what-if.

He will say later: he regrets that it happened like this. )

etherati: (WM - D - gave up)
Title: Widows' Gate
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Dan, as-yet-unnamed OC
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Some deaths come without blood or pain or anyone to mourn.
Rating/Warnings: PG. Post-GN/Movie canon!verse, so: depressing.
Notes: Originally a captcha fill('gatepost widows'), but it got long and I like it so it's getting its own post.

They leave no flowers, no candles, no cards or tokens – just an endless mosaic of every face that stood between Adrian and his unfathomable knot. )
etherati: (WM - R/D - handshake)
Title: Prisoners
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Dan, Rorschach.
Date Written: 2009
Summary: Skin-on-skin is its own confession, and we are all caged.
Rating/Warnings: PG. Not actually slash, despite the summary. Nothing offensive at all, as far as I can tell.
Notes: Kinkmeme fill, prompt was for Rorschach's reaction the first time Dan unmasked.
Clarification: (Because I'm paranoid) When the word 'man' is used in this, it is not meant in a gender-loaded way, but in the more general sense of 'human being'.

He couldn't name the melody, put a label on the pitch and timbre of the notes, but he knows: this is wrong. )
