Pastiches, as far as the eye can see.
Drabbles (100 Words Exactly)
A True Gentleman...Around
the World in Eighty Days, Phileas/Aouda. Rated G. In which it is shown
that Phileas Fogg is a gentleman in all respects
Fantasy VI. Rated G. Setzer loves an entrance.
Rated PG. Young Drosselmeyer learns what real power is.
Man Who Was Thursday. Rated G. Inspector Syme steps into the light.
Prisoner of Zenda. Rated G. Princess Flavia almost tells the truth.
Rome. Rated G. Antony curses his foolishness.
Strange and Mr Norrell/Ancient Rome. Rated PG. The fairies promised
Caesar that he would rule the world, but everyone knows how fairies bargain.
Rome, Vergil/Horace. Rated PG13. Well, you can't learn everything
from books of poetry.
Old Roman Virtues...Ancient
Rome. Rated PG. It's the dawning of a new era, and everyone wants to return
to an age of splendor and plenty.
Ave Atque Vale...Catullus/Iuventius. Rated PG13. Catullus's
latest love isn't quite the respite that he wanted. WiP.
Part One: Salax Taberna...Catullus
is in love again, and everyone knows it.
Part Two: Mellitus
Iuventius...A few moments alone between poet and protege.
Rated PG13. Written for Gilly,
on the occasion of Saturnalia. In which the Muses are fickle, a great
commission is taken, and several arguments are started but not finished.
Rated PG13. Another Saturnalia fic, this time an experiment in dialogue-only
"Blessed is he," Horace wrote, "who far from being busy/tends
his fields like the ancestral race of men." Or at least, that's what
the moneylenders say.
Orpheus in Silvis...Vergil/Maecenas.
Rated PG. A shy poet, a noble patron, and a curious discussion over dinner.
Final Fantasy VI
Events on the Night
of the King’s Birthday, As Witnessed By Thaddeus Marze, Secretary and
Record-Keeper of Figaro Castle...Locke/Edgar. Rated PG. A slashfic
written from the point of view of an uninvolved third party. Um, it seemed
like a good idea at the time. A court scholar can't help but eavesdrop
when the King of Figaro meets with his rebel informant. Locke's dialogue
came out peppered with Victorian thieves' cant -- I think it might be
the steampunk tone of the game.
Rated PG. Locke thinks, sometimes, that he might be mad.
Around the World in Eighty Days
According to Schedule...Rated
PG. I am really a loss to explain this one, except to say that it's definately
the result of the DesperateFans
pairing generator popping up Eris/Aouda. The Goddess of Dischord plays
favorites, and what comes of it.
R (for gore and gruesomeness). The bloody circumstances of Drosselmeyer's
last fairy tale, and how he proved that the pen is mightier than the axe.
WARNING: Massive spoilers for the second season.
Basil of Baker Street/Sherlock Holmes
Plans of Mice and Men...Rated
G. Sherlock and Watson, without knowing it, are great friends to mice.
Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water
Jean might be a scientist, but he is still a little boy at heart.
Raffles: The Amateur Cracksman
G. Set during the main characters' school days. Raffles' secrets are Bunny's
G. In vino, veritas. After a particularly unsuccessful job, Raffles
makes certain inquiries. Set directly after the second story, "A Costume
Piece". Oh, and it's Raffles' POV. Yes, I realize this is backwards from
According to Plan...Rated
PG13. Raffles/Bunny. A moment on the roof is rudely interrupted, but Raffles
is not so easily dissuaded from his purpose. Bunny's POV, set directly
after the events of "To Catch a Thief" in book 3.
G. Frederick Bottger is twenty-one years old, an accomplished alchemist,
and a prisoner in the dungeons of Prussia who will not go free until he
turns lead into gold. This is a true story, and Frederick Bottger eventually
developed porcelin in his dungeon laboratory by sheer accident. Read The
Arcanum for a fun history of this matter. I think this might be one
of the most obscure fanfics on the internet. Honestly.
The Confession of Dr. Robert
Knox, Anatomist...rated PG. "Burke's the butcher/Hare's the theif/Knox,
the boy who buys the beef." The crowd called him an accessory to murder.
Were they right? Based on my favorite murder case from the Regency era.
G. A silly little thing I wrote a long time ago. Zim derails Dib's life
in ways he never thought possible when Dib's girlfriend asks the million-dollar
question: "Is there someone else?"
