Yup… Jericho… again :-)

Can you tell my muses really like this fandom?

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Green, Green Grass Of Home
Rating: General
Characters: Jake, Chavez, OCs
Word count: 7,300
Summary: After he’s delivered the bomb to Texas, there’s only one thing left that Jake desperately wants: to go back home to Jericho.

***

This started originally as a short piece for Jake-in-Texas, where he met with the governor and learned the hoped-for help was not forthcoming. Then I caught a smidgen of Tanaqui’s disorderly muse, and instead of writing scenes in chronological order (my usual MO for 99% of stories), I found myself writing bits and pieces of the journey home, scenes intertwined with Tanaqui’s The First Seventeen Hours, as well as rewriting large parts of my (never published) first Jericho story about Jake’s return home from Texas.

At one point, it was a monster fic of over 15,000 words. And then I realized it was really two stories. So, this is the first. Expect to see the sequel–what happens after Jake arrives back in Jericho–shortly.

Even more Jericho fic

First a small review rant: If a story is obviously a missing scene, set within an 0ff-screen moment in canon, and canon is picking up almost instantly after the final word of the fic…. Why do people insist that I “can’t leave it like that!”…?

Lots of speculative pre-series characterization in this one.

Three Jericho ficlets…

I’ve got a triple dose of fic for ya! Yes, the muses have been busy… 🙂 All three stories are part of Awesome!Jakeverse, the shared (post-series, but some is in canon, or even pre-series) ‘verse of myself and Tanaqui.

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Not To Question Why
Rating: General
Characters: Jake, Thompson
Word count: 1,630
Summary: Col. Thompson of the Texas Air National Guard comes face to face with the man he went to war over..

***

One of the first Awesome!Jakeverse stories that I drafted. It’s been held back for a little, while we hammered out a suitable timeline and figured out what was supposed to happen when. Also, I tried to fix (or at least, address) something that’s been bugging me in canon. That’s what fic is for, after all!

Fandom: Jericho

Word count: 447
Summary: Heather tends to babble when she gets nervous. And Jake Green brings out the worst in her….

Fandom: Jericho

Characters: Jake
Word count: 281
Summary: Learning about Heather’s fate while in jail in New Bern, Jake has time for regrets.

Two short pieces set during the first season. It was the ants that got to me first, and then Tanaqui said I needed to write a Famous Last Words companion piece for Jake set a little later in the show.

Drabble, double drabble

(Also, [info]tanaquific and I are getting thisclose to posting the first of our post-series Awesome!Jakeverse (A!Jverse for short) Jericho stories. Squeee! I haven’t been this prolific in, well, forever!)

But first:

Fandom: Supernatural
Title
: Watcher In The Shadows
Rating
: General
Characters
: Jess
Word count: 200
Summary: Even in death, Jess still cares for Sam.

***

Initially drafted while home sick with a headache and feeling like a zombie. I think it shows in that it’s somewhat… weird. Tanaqui likes it, though, so I can’t have gone wrong too badly 🙂

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Old Habits
Rating: Teen
Characters: Jake/Emily
Word count: 100
Summary: Most of his life, Jake has drifted into situations… and only realized he’s made the wrong choices far, far too late…

***

Already part of the Awesome!Jakeverse, in my mind, though it can be read separately.

Fic announcement: Jericho Sock!Fic

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Put On Your Smiley Face
Rating: General
Characters: Jake, Heather
Word count: 1,428
Summary: Jake finds he can no longer hide an embarrassing secret from Heather.

Once upon a time, after I lemming’d tanaqui over the Jericho cliff, we got talking about Jake-inna-towel. So, having written about characters in towels before, I set out to write Jake-inna-towel fic for her. Except the muses reminded me that if I did that, I might have to set up yet another LJ community for towel!fic. And that there already was a sadly neglected sock!fic comm

And so, Jericho!sock!fic was spawned.

Then it turned out there was an issue with the timeline… It was nearly impossible to find where to insert this ficlet into the canon timeline. But with a lot of analysis and detective work and metaing, tanaqui and I located the one day where it could have happened (well, she did, I just fixed the fic)…

Ah, such are the troubles of a fanfic writer’s life.
