Mid-year fic roundup

Really should’ve done this a few weeks ago, but… it’s time for the mid-year fic roundup! All stories posted (if not necessarily written) between January 1st en June 30th, 2009.

Dark Angel


Lord of the Rings

Stargate Atlantis


The Kill Point

*blinks at list* Um… wow? Even with the double counts for the crossovers, that’s one heck of a lot of fic!

Fic Announcement: and another Crazy Crossover

Fandoms: Lord of the Rings/Supernatural
Title: Seeking God (also here)
Rating: General
Characters: Sam Winchester and Faramir
Word count: 947
Summary: Sam Winchester is determined to find answers. And when he can’t find them in our world, he’ll just have to go look elsewhere.


It took me a while to figure out how to connect these two. They have so much in common that it was hard to decide. But once I knew what I wanted the story to be about, it basically wrote itself. One of those cases where I not only like to have written, but where the process of writing itself is fun too.

Linda, I hope you like it too!

Fic Announcement: More Crazy Crossovers

Fandoms: Lord of the Rings/The Kill Point
Title: Strategy Meeting (also here)
Rating: General
Characters: Faramir and Jake Mendez
Word count
: 986
Summary: A good commander is always willing to listen to advice, even if the advisor is a curiosity in himself.


For what is basically a writing exercise using crossover characters, this little ficlet gave me far too much trouble. No matter what tack I tried, my brain kept insisting that I should answer the questions of how and why, and address every one of Faramir’s numerous thoughts and suspicions and curiosities about the stranger I dropped in his lap. Which would’ve led to another monster fic-from-hell that I am so not willing to write!

Even though I knew fairly early on what I wanted the story to do, it was quite difficult to keep the balance and not have one character outshine the other. I think in this, the fifth or sixth attempt, I finally managed to get it right

Fic Announcement: Crazy Crossover

I posted the first of my Crazy Crossover ficlets:

Fandoms: Supernatural/Stargate Atlantis
Title: Wraith 101 (also here)
Rating: General
Characters: Dean Winchester, Rodney McKay
Word count: 602
Summary: Dean had thought Sammy was the ultimate geek. Until, in a galaxy far, far away, he met Doctor Rodney McKay.

Fandoms: Stargate Atlantis/Lord of the Rings
Title: Women’s Work (also here)
Rating: General
Characters: Éowyn and Teyla
Word count
: 691
Summary: Although they grew up worlds apart, Éowyn and Teyla have more in common than either might have first thought.


In all honesty, I have to say that this Crazy Crossover thing is fun! Far more fun than I expected it to be. It’s also a good exercise, because it allows (and forces) me to concentrate on the characters. Without going into the hows and whys of a bigger plot, I can focus on the who, what, where and when. I won’t say it’s easy—like any fic writing, some of it comes naturally, while at other times it’s more like pulling teeth—but I would advise this to anyone who’s in a rut, writing-wise, or maybe even suffers from writing block.

And yes, I am still working on some of the other requests. Jake Mendez & Faramir is mostly done, while Sam & Faramir is percolating. However, I am as yet clueless to Bobby & Legolas, or Dean & Aragorn
