Hey, since when do you write Twilight?

So. Yeah. Am back to my favorite writing exercise, ascending drabbles (100 words, 200 words, etc.) on a new character, in this case Alice Cullen. The idea came from wanting to understand more about Alice Cullen's backstory, and because everything I do is better as a crossover, I've done so in some cases. Information from the books and a Twiki.

Graceful, She Falls
The five senses of Alice, upon awakening
Twilight stories


~~~

Sight (Alice) )
Sound (The Doctor) )
Scent (Duncan MacLeod) )
Taste (Jack Harkness) )
Touch (Jasper Whitlock) )

Rating: PG-13 overall for some violence
Disclaimer: Twilight belongs to Stephenie Meyer. Highlander belongs to Davis/Panzer et al. Torchwood and Doctor Who are in the good hands of the BBC.

Hey party people. I'm O SO CLOSE to being done the next chapter of Dawning Light - the only hold-ups are Anita (she's not behaving in the way I want so I need to do a bit of re-writes on her reactions to the five-year-old) and my time this week being all booked up. But I'm SO CLOSE. I am really looking forward to that.

Next item of the agenda: Worst music video of all time, or just the 20th Century? (And this all started from a post by John Scalzi)

You kids out there have no idea how good you had it, with your growing up in the late 90s. You know what MTV was like for us back in the 80s? It was like this:

youtube embed cut#1 )

Words cannot begin to describe how bad this video is. Can anyone explain the plot that suddenly appears halfway in? And those glasses and perms in the video? Yeah, we all had those.

Although I think this video here might threaten Toto for top spot of badness. It's so bad I'm prevented from embedding it here. Steven Perry looks like he's trying to pass a kidney stone while singing.

Luckily, Journey made up for it with this piece of truly awesome American rock:

youtube embed cut#2 )

But enough of the music: Pocket Watch Boy is up for a Children of Time award.



Voting starts Dec. 1, so I'll make another post or something. Nominees are already posted so you can go read lots of good Who fic.

Old Bones
A Bones/Torchwood crossover
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: A man from Angela's past has come to set things right...
Disclaimer: FOX and Hansen own Bones. Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Torchwood.
Rating: PG
Setting/Spoilers: Set in the summer after the end of season 3 for Bones and season 2 of Torchwood. Epic spoilers for all the revelations therein. This may have been jossed by Bones season four but I haven't seen that yet so who knows? Well, um, I'm sure you do... hey, onto fic.
Characters: Angela Montenegro and Jack Harkness, Team Bones
Words: 10,850
Notes: I started working on this over the summer. Consider this my big (have you seen that word count?) foray into the world of Bones. There's more stuff that should go into the notes about the wheres and the whys of this story, but that would ruin the story so I'll just say: Enjoy :)

After the dust settled, Angela put Zack away in a drawer. )

by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords



Summary: Sometimes it takes an encounter with a stranger to break the walls down.
Disclaimer: Hanson and Fox own Bones. Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Torchwood.
Rating: PG-13 for innuendo
Setting/Spoilers: The end of season 3 for Bones and season 2 of Torchwood. Spoilers for all the revelations therein.
Characters: Temperance Brennan and Jack Harkness, team Bones. A little Bones/Harkness action in a way that isn't at all about that slash.
Words: 2,295
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] bessemerprocess in the What the Ficathon. Prompts were for Bones and Torchwood.

Link to the ficathon comm: [ Angela Montenegro never took her eyes off the couple on the raised platform in the center of the lab. "Someone's going to get lucky." ]

A Pretender/Torchwood crossover
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords

Two years later, Torchwood came to take back what was theirs.

Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Torchwood. Pretender belongs to NBC.

Jack and Sarah Jane, Down the Lane
A Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures crossover
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Jack Harkness really wasn't expecting to see Sarah Jane Smith behind door number one...
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Torchwood and the Sarah Jane Adventures and oh yes, me.
Rating: PG for innuendo, snogging, horrified teenagers.
Setting: Post TW Exit Wounds but no spoilers, after season one of SJA and again no spoilers.
Characters/Pairings: The Sarah Jane crew, Team Torchwood, and some background Sarah Jane/Jack.
Words: 2,570

''It'll be easy,'' Jack promised. ''We just go up and knock on the door and get the Sarlesian Disc back from these people. We won't even have to break any laws.'' )

Pocket Watch Boy 1/4
The life and times of Ianto Jones
A Torchwood/Doctor Who story
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Ianto Jones is a very different sort of boy. (wee!Time Lord!Ianto)
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC run the show with Dr. Who and Torchwood.
Rating: PG-13 (O canon slash, how I loves thee)
Setting: Just after Torchwood's Something Borrowed.
Spoilers: Nothing past Torchwood's Out of the Rain; has spoilers up to the end of series three of Dr. Who (Last of the Time Lords and all that).
Characters/Pairings: Ianto/Jack, all of team Torchwood and a certain Doctor (and his companion from the start of series 4, but nothing spoilery other than her name).
Words: Too many. 29,970 when viewed as a whole. Complete (and how often do I say that?)
Note: I blame this little plot bunny on [livejournal.com profile] gracie_musica and the loltorchwood macro at [livejournal.com profile] ihazastopwatch because, honestly. Yes, I know that he's holding a stopwatch. Bear with me. It was going to be crack!fic and then I wrote a real story. And as such, this taking forever to write, I have been Jossed so hard. But I was so far into it that I sucked up my bruised ficly feelings and finished it. I like it loads and you should too.

Parts One, Two, Three, Four.

Cool. I wrote over 5,500 words today. I am made of win!

Ghost Story
Part III in the Angels and Drums series
A Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Torchwood story
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Jack knows better than to trust little girls in haunted houses. Honest.
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Dr. Who and Torchwood. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is all Joss, baby.
Rating: PG
Setting/Spoilers Post BtVS, after Torchwood's A Day In The Death. Not BtVS comic compliant.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Dawn Summers. The beginnings of a relationship. Flirting, nothing more.
Words: 6,300
Note: I was initialy going to put the adventures of Doctor and Buffy in at this point, but Buffy's voice is hard to get at some days. Whereas Dawn won't shut up. Enjoy!

Part I: Five Times The Doctor Met Someone New: Angels and Drums.
Part II: Seeking Arcana.

Vacations, Jack thought in disgust. About twenty years after he realized he couldn't die, he'd given up on vacations. There'd always be another day for 'rest', he figured. So why he'd let Gwen Cooper talk him into a few days of vacation, he'd never know. )

One thing I noticed in "A Day in the Death" was Spoilers for Torchwood 2x08 ) So.

by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Dawn is looking for Buffy in all the wrong places...
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Dr. Who and Torchwood. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is all Joss, baby.
Rating: PG
Setting Post BtVS, after Dr. Who's Last of the Time Lords. Uses a minor non-spoilery character from Torchwood's Dead Man Walking, but you don't need to know that show.
Characters/Pairings: Dawn Summers, Little Girl
Words: 450
Note: Um, yeah. Stupid new fandoms. But I'm still working on Inevitable. This little series is to prevent me from going loca.

Sequel to Five Times The Doctor Met Someone New: Angels and Drums.

Dawn sat across the table from the little girl, wondering if she was signing a deal with the devil. )

I've officially freaked myself out.

Little Girl, Delicate In Her Ribbons
A Torchwood story
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: He's known her for a century, and he just can't stay away.
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own it all.
Rating: R for dark themes.
Setting/Spoilers: Set in "Dean Man Walking" (TW 2x07), dealing with a character introduced in that show.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness, Little Girl
Words: 350
Notes: My regular readers may know what I mean when I say that Little Girl reminds me of Elsa from Inevitable. And they will not be reassured.

He can't stay away. )

And then I went crazy and wrote this.

Shades of Grey
A Torchwood/Anita Blake crossover
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: No matter how long he searched, no matter how much he hoped, Jack Harkness never expected to see Grey again.
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own Torchwood. Laurel K. Hamilton owns Anita Blake. Crossovers own me.
Rating: PG-13
Setting/Spoilers: Set after Torchwood 2x06, "Reset" (the most recent episode in the UK, and spoilers for that due to a certain thing), and spoilers for characters revealed in Torchwood 2x05, "Adam". It's ten years "after canon" for Anita Blake, because the books started in 1994 and I say so.
Characters/Pairings: Jack Harkness and Team Torchwood (TW) and Nathaniel Graison (AB)
Words: 9,035
Notes: Yes, I am going *there*. Author notes on this one are at the end of the story because I feel the need to explain myself for once.

Jack shoved his hands into his coat pockets. The wet fingers of the inevitable downpour crept down his collar, and he wished, not for the first time, that the Rift had opened in the French Riviera, not rainy, dreary Cardiff. )

Five times Jack kissed a member of Torchwood (and one time that he really, really didn't)
A Torchwood story
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Five times Jack kissed a member of Torchwood (and one time that he really, really didn't)
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own it all.
Rating: PG-13 for some brief swearing. It's all pre-watershed hour.
Setting/Spoilers: Set early in series two of Torchwood, after 2.03, with spoilers for that, and a Casting Spoiler for later in the series - be warned. Some spoilers for the last bit of series three of Dr. Who.
Characters/Pairings: Jack paired with Gwen, Tosh, Owen, Casting Spoiler ), Ianto, and a mystery character. And, of course, any sundry of these with innuendo in the background.
Words: Around 3,000, all told.
Notes: Any character study involving Jack Harkness is going to involve kissing. It's like a rule.

Gwen Cooper - Wedding )

Toshiko Sato - Christmas )

Owen Harper - Water )

Spoilers for the guest star and also for series three of Dr. Who - Dreams )

Sunday morning flashfic!

This one has probably been done before, but I haven't had a chance to get into the Torchwood fanfic yet, so I have no idea. I'm still getting my feet in this fandom, so take that into consideration. All comments welcome. As for that schedule I posted, well, Chapter 10 of Physics is half-way done. Up soon.

Mirror'd Across the Rift
A Torchwood/Doctor Who story
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: Sometimes, it seems as if the dark-haired girls named Gwen will always be the ones to save Cardiff...
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own it all.
Rating: PG for some brief swearing.
Setting/Spoilers: Set early in series two of Torchwood, some vague spoilers for episodes aired so far, and from the Ninth Doctor's "The Unquiet Dead".
Characters/Pairings: Jack, Gwen, Rhys, and the rest of the crew. This is rather gen, but there is some background Gwen/Rhys.
Words: 4,400
Notes: I know the folks at the BBC say it was nothing but coincidental casting, but I can't leave it alone: same actress, two characters, both named Gwen, in Cardiff, on Dr. Who and Torchwood. I had to find a way to make it logical.

Gwen turned the photograph over the right way. What she saw made no sense. It was a picture of herself.  )

Whatever Happened To Torchwood Four?
A Torchwood crossover with a mystery fandom! (but if you read this LJ, you like the fandom)(no, it's not Gilmore Girls)(God how weird would that be?) with Stargate Atlantis
by [livejournal.com profile] mhalachaiswords


Summary: "Torchwood Four's gone missing but we'll find it some day." But where?
Disclaimer: Russell T. Davis and the BBC own it all. Except the crossover fandom, but that's not owned by me either.
Rating: PG
Setting/Spoilers: No real spoilers for Torchwood, except the beginning of the series.
Characters: Four OCs masquerading as Torchwood Four. Trust me. Oh, and it's all about Captain Jack.
Words: 900, give or take
Notes: I hate writing OCs in anything under 1000 words because the introductions are so forced. Anyway, I like my Torchwood Four. I digress. In the Torchwood pilot, Jack Harkness said something like...

Torchwood Four's gone missing but we'll find it some day. )

If you're too impatient to read the fic to see the crossover verse )
