More Fic: Jericho

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Home Brew
Rating: General
Characters: Jake, Heather, Chavez
Word count: 6,500
Summary: Upon his return from Texas, Jake learns more about the changes in Jericho that happened during his absence.

This is the second part of the story that I mentioned when announcing Green, Green Grass Of Home. It still contains particles of the very first Jericho story I wrote, which never made it to publication, because I came to realize it could set the stage for an entire post-series ‘verse, and as such required much more thought than I originally put into it.

That original version was also the story that turned Tanaqui into a Jake/Heather shipper before she’d ever seen a single second of the show…

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.

Jericho fic: Missed Opportunities

Word count: 2,700
Summary: On the way to Black Jack, Heather isn’t sure if she wants to hear what Jake finally has to say to her.

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

Fandom: Jericho
Title: Forever Never
Rating: General
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.

Supernatural ficlet

Fandom: Supernatural
Title: Desperate Remedy
Rating: General
Characters: Sam, Ruby
Word count: 575
Summary: Sam’s having trouble learning how to kill demons with his mind. Ruby has a solution.

***

Probably another of those ‘mandatory’ ficlets for something in canon that just demands exploring.

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, muchly, plus actual announcement

Huh, a week off from work plus a shiny new fandom to play in (Jericho) makes the muses all atwitter with excitement and new ideas.  I think I wrote a piece of brand new fic (for various fandoms) every day last, week (except Tuesday, when I went to the zoo with The Nephew, and Friday, when there was too much squeeing over the new fandom going on).

Aside from the story below, I wrote 2 SPN pieces, 3 Jericho pieces, 1 Kill Point piece, and a Kill Point/Jericho crossover. Can you say prolific?

Needless to say, I did not work on the stories I’d planned to work on…

I also lured Tanaqui to follow me over the cliff into Jericho fandom, and I think she fell even harder than I did. With the result that we are now brainstorming and wiki’ing our very own post-series continuation ‘verse…

At the current rate of plot bunny spawning, we’ll be in fic for years to come…

Anyway, on top of that, we also co-wrote a story for the [info]enter_tzone Twilight Zone challence, for our other two-woman fandom (well, Jericho’s bigger than just us, but we haven’t venture far into the fandom yet; it’s those nuts-people, remember 🙂 )

Fandom: The Kill Point
Title: Long Distance Call
Rating: General
Characters: Jake Mendez
Word count: 1,830
Summary: Sometimes our lives turn on a single moment. For Jake Mendez, that moment is about to arrive.

***

As said, co-written with the wonderful Tanaqui. This is the first time since forever that I co-wrote something with someone (and that actually turned into something publishable). It’ll be interesting to hear if people can easily spot who wrote what…

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.

Fic announcement: Supernatural fixit

Characters: Dean, Sam
Word count: 1,958
Summary: Grieving for yet another lost friend, Dean and Sam are in for a surprise. (spoilers for Supernatural 4.15 Death Takes A Holiday)

My first thought when Dean brought Pamela into the room was, “Yay!” But as soon as she opened her mouth, my second thought was, “Who the hell is this bitter, cynical woman? ‘Cause it sure as hell ain’t Pamela Barnes!”

Mr. Carver, if you make me wanna write weirdo fix-it fic, you’re doing it wrong…!
