Mockingbirds and Diamond Rings
An Anita Blake story by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: What will Anita do when she finds herself pregnant with Jean-Claude's child? Snapshots of the pregnancy at two, four, six and eight months.
Disclaimer: The Anita Blake universe belongs to Laurell K. Hamilton. I'm only borrowing and will return all at the end of the fic.
Rating: PG for language, content.
Characters: Anita, Jean-Claude
Word count: 4,300
Setting: About a year after Danse Macabre; contains no spoilers for Harlequin.
Note/warning: This story contains themes addressed in Danse Macabre, specifically Anita's views toward continuing or terminating a pregnancy. This is how I think Anita would react were she actually pregnant. There will be discussion of abortion in the first part of the story, just so you know. Another note, I don't know anything about US state laws, so I'm making up specifics to apply to Anita's world.

Dedication: I don't usually do a dedication on my fics, but I need to give three nods out: To [livejournal.com profile] cissasghost for the talks we've had over the last few years on Anita and the occurrences in Danse Macabre. You always help me to get into Anita's head. Also to [livejournal.com profile] sabriel_0405, who's been a great fellow fan of the AB books. Happy belated birthday. Lastly, to [livejournal.com profile] he_dreams_awake for the suggestion of the Anita pregnancy fic. It was a good kick in the pants :)

Sticks and Stones and A Girl Like Her
Switchback missing scene
An Anita Blake Fanfic story
by Mhalachai


Summary: Jean-Claude is slipping away from Anita, and she doesn't know how to hold on.
Disclaimer: Anita Blake belongs to Laurell K. Hamilton. No profit has been made from this fic.
Rating: PG-13
Words: 322
Missing Scene: #36 - Guilt.
Note: This missing scene takes place deep into Switchback. I was hit on the head last night by the Lyrical Fairy. I'll put it like this: Anita's not doing so good in the Switchback world. Lack of capitalization and punctuation done on purpose.

There's a bite to the breeze, sharp as fangs skimming over skin, sinking just deep enough to bleed her and steal the sounds that she will not let fall from her lips. )

That Rebel Motorcycle Club
An Anita Blake drabble


Disclaimer: LKH owns all things Anita Blake
Characters: Anita, Asher, Angst.
Setting: Whenever.
Oh Yeah: Anita POV

~~~


I hung back, not believing my eyes. "Are you serious?"

Asher swung around. "Did I develop a reputation for frivolity while I wasn't looking?" he asked.

I glared at his new motorcycle. "Do you know how many ways you can die horribly on that?"

Asher stared at me, his blue eyes glowing unnaturally at me from the streetlight's harsh glare. There was a challenge there, one I wasn't sure I was willing to accept.

"Come." Asher whispered, holding out his hand.

A thousand emotions ran over me, fear and apprehension… and the tiniest hint of exhilaration.

I went to him.

"Stop looking at me like that."

"Anita, he's a jerk."

"Hence the fact that I'm throwing away all his stuff?"

"Come on, sit down for a minute."

"I'm not sitting down!"

"You're in pain, I know, we've all been through this."

"Stop! I just need to get the rest of his stuff out of here and I'll be fine!"

"Anita... I don't think it works that way."

"It has to. It just... I have to get past him. To get over it."

"I know. But it'll take time."

"I don't have time."

"You do."

"Fine. I won't take the time."

To Grandmother's House We Go
An Anita Blake drabble

Characters: little Anita, her father

Note: [livejournal.com profile] sabriel_0405 said a lovely thing the other hour, and it pushed me into drabbling.

~~~


He stared at his thirteen-year-old daughter, sitting sullenly in the airport. She didn't want to be here, didn't want to go to Mexico while all her friends were at summer camp. He didn't want to be here either.

Anita looked so normal that his stomach churned. But she wasn't normal. Like stories Maria had told about her mother, stories of unnatural darkness.

"Can I get a Coke?" Anita asked suddenly.

He swallowed his panic. "Sure, sweetie."

"Thanks, Daddy."

He watched Anita, so young, so... innocent. Who would have imagined that she could do something as horrible as raising the dead?

Plus, I stayed late at work today... )

AB drabble

A Nathaniel drabble I posted to [livejournal.com profile] abvh100 this morning blah boring Saturday.

Title: Old Habits
Characters: Nathaniel, Richard
Challenge: #68 -- Nathaniel
Note: Set right after Narcissus in Chains
Word Count: 200

~~~


Nathaniel hadn't survived so long by pissing off alpha lycanthropes. With Gabriel and Raina, Nathaniel knew his place. Do as you're told. Don't scream until I say.

But they were dead now. Anita killed them and saved Nathaniel and took him home and hadn't made him leave.

He fed the ardeur for her, but they weren't having sex. Not yet, Nathaniel reminded himself. One day, he'd figure out how to give her what she needed, and they'd have their happy ever after.

One thing Anita wanted was for him to be more assertive, and he tried. Like yesterday. Richard had looked at Nathaniel with such loathing. The Ulfric thought Nathaniel was in Anita's life and her bed, and that he had her body as well.

The old Nathaniel would have told Richard the truth: that Anita hadn't taken him like that, not yet. The old Nathaniel would have tried everything to keep safe from those stronger than himself.

But then, the old Nathaniel never had Anita smile trustingly at him in the morning. No one had ever depended on the old Nathaniel for anything, let alone companionship.

Nathaniel let Richard believe what he wanted. The Ulfric couldn't hurt him now.

The Leaving Hour

Summary: A month after the events in Danse Macabre, Anita thinks about her life and her relationships.
Disclaimer: The Anita Blake universe belongs to Laurell K. Hamilton. I'm only borrowing and will return all at the end of the fic.
Characters: Anita, Jean-Claude, Nathaniel, Micah
Rating: PG-13 for angst.

Arg! I am unmotivated by the writing. I blame it on the huge work thing that I just finished and I am now unable to write coherently. I also have to work tomorrow (boo) and won't have a chance to write all weekend (double boo). When the heck am I going to finish all my WIPs??

Now, an AB drabble.

Title: The Second Mark
Characters: Jean-Claude, Anita

Note: Set in chapter 13 of Guilty Pleasures. Yes, the first book.
Word Count: 200

The door slammed, a thin sheet of wood between Anita and the danger that was Nikolaos. Jean-Claude whirled back to the fight, to stand against Nikolaos, but he knew he could not win this battle alone.

Nikolaos would see him dead, he knew that now. There was only one way to save himself; a daring way, a plan he had accidentally put into motion to save the life of Anita, one who hunted his kind. He would place himself in her small hands, entwine their fates for all eternity... if she did not kill him for what he was about to do.

Gathering all of his power in one last desperate burst, he reached out, followed the tendrils of need he had lain upon Anita when he had given her the first mark. He knew she ran up the dark stairs, her strength failing, her fear overwhelming. He could almost see her in the darkness, bathed in the dark blue flame of his power. She screamed as the dark flames rushed toward her, but to no avail.

"Forgive me."

Her dark necromancy flared up, cold and deadly, as the second mark became real.

She was his.

~~~~~~~~~

There is blood on the walls when I dream.


I used to believe dreams didn't mean anything. That was before vampires haunted me day and night, with their quiet demands and soulless curiosity and their taking, always taking.

Back before I had blood on my hands.

I don't tell anyone about what I dream. There is blood on the walls when I dream, blood on my hands, and the bodies of everyone I care about broken at my feet. Broken and dead, and I couldn't stop it.

I couldn't stop myself.

There is blood on my hands when I dream.

Hey kids. It's funny how a 60-hour work week doesn't leave me a lot of energy for writing, or LJing, or much of anything, really. Anyway, here, have some Anita Blake drabbles.

Title: Trust
Characters: Edward

Edward kept his weaponry well-stocked. One never knew when a hunt for the preternatural would start. Always be prepared: motto of Boy Scouts and assassins.

Edward trusted his weapons; knew the weight of each knife, the recoil of every gun. There was only one thing in his stock that left him uneasy.

It was the tiny vials of holy water. Edward didn't like depending on others, even those he could rely on, like Anita. Edward didn’t trust God, or in God, or any of that shit. God was a fickle ally at best.

The only thing Edward trusted was Death.

Title: Deserving
Characters: Nathaniel, Asher
Note: Extreme Danse Macabre spoilers. Hence the cut.

Hey kids.

1. A Stargate Atlantis fic for [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic:
Kryptonite in the Palms of Her Hands

Characters: Teyla Emmagen, John Sheppard, others
Genre: Gen, friendship.
Setting: Set generically after season 2, no spoilers for anything.
Rating: PG
Word count:: 2,790
Note: I wrote this without re-examining the challenge, thinking it was for a "superpower" story and not remembering the "secret" part. It's okay, though, as one can construe the secret as being kept from a select few. Basically, I'm colouring outside of the lines.

Teyla hadn't spoken in three days

2. An Anita Blake drabble.
Title: Cold

Note to self: Food is necessary at least twice a day. Dizziness is bad.

I started working on Inevitable 70 today... and got about three lines in and then was all, "So... what's happening again?" and I had to go reread twenty chapters, then I started working on the Inevitable soundtrack, which I can't post until the end of the story because it's got spoilers for how it all ends. But:

REQUEST: Does anyone have any idea of a song I can use for Bellatrix's theme, and for the Lupanar scene when Harry doesn't turn into a werewolf (with the thoughts of both loss and hope)?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The music thumping in the club felt like a second heartbeat in my chest. It was numbing and hard and strange. Why had I let Nathaniel convince me to come to Danse Macabre on his night off?

I’d put my foot down when Nathaniel asked me to dance. I'd sent him out onto the dance floor on his own. After I'd been propositioned by five men and one woman, I climbed the stairs to the balcony.

It took me a minute to spot Nathaniel. He moved in time with the music, doing nothing overtly sexual, but watching him writhe, sweat glistening on his bare arms, the flash of his silver necklace... My skin felt too hot, too alone. It wasn't the ardeur that made me ache. It was him, amid the heartbeat of the music.

He looked up, eyes meeting mine. I knew he felt it too, this wanting. This was why he wanted me to come tonight, to feel the music and the need for more.

Nathaniel climbed the stairs, coming for me, wanting me to hold him down and hurt him just a little bit more.

I closed my eyes, and let the music flow over my skin.

Characters: Anita

As I breathed around my shattered ribs, I heard a sound behind the closed door. No.

I didn't have to check my gun to know I only had one bullet left. Dead vampires surrounded me, the remnants of a murderous crew. I'd had a warrant, but they hadn't gone down without a fight.

Ignoring my broken right arm and the fact that I couldn't feel my legs, I raised the gun left-handed as the door handle turned. I had one bullet left.

Zerbrowski and a crowd of cops burst through the door, guns out.

I let my gun fall.

Finished.

Hey kids. How's it going? Not sure what fic I'll be working on next. I'm dabbling, as usual. Right now, Balancing Act 4 is at about 1,000 words but there's really no action in this section, so I might condense the next chapter (the action chapter!) into this one and make the fic 7 parts long. I dunno. Also, maybe I'll make icons.

Characters: Jean-Claude, Asher
Challenge: #59 - Waiting
Note: Set in and around Incubus Dreams. You know why I love the Anita Blake books? The slash is canon.

Jean-Claude stared at the body sprawled on the silk sheets of his bed, idly playing with the golden curls in a room as still as the grave.

He waited.

He spent many hours waiting. Waiting for Anita to grace him with her presence, waiting for Richard to come to his senses, waiting to sink his teeth into Jason's warm throat, waiting for his enemies to make their next move. Now, he waited for life, or something like it, to pour back into this vampire.

The body at his side twitched, then long limbs stretched out. Jean-Claude smiled. "Bon jour, Asher."
