Title: The Cougar Way
For AngeNoir

Fandom: The Losers (2010)
Pairing: Carlos "Cougar" Alvarez/Jake Jensen
Summary: In which Cougar is not a vampire, and things do not go to hell.

Look!  I wrote a story last year!  And it was slash and everything.  I'm pretty happy with it as it is something that I would like to get.  AngeNoir's list of fandoms matched my reading list for the past couple of years, with all of my favorite urban fantasy/paranormal romance universes in her request.  Her kinks also aligned strongly with mine, so I thought 'wow, this will be like writing for myself, and I'm not sure I can do that...'  The story did shrink and move fandoms as the deadline approached, as I always think about more than I can write. :)  I did try to keep some of the urban fantasy/paranormal romance vibe without actually including anything supernatural in it, and I only had time for a very short sex scene. Still and all, I like how it turned out, and that's not something i say all that often.  I pretty much hate my writing when I get done.

Many thanks to Gwyn, who made the story a lot better.    A ton of thanks for that.  Thanks as well to Movies_Michelle,  who gave me a final proofing pass as I made it just in time to the deadline.  You both rock.

3Ships reveal! I wrote a Leverage story for 7Iris, and had a blast doing it. Thank you to Zvi for organizing it.

Title: A Casual, Easy Thing (Link goes to AO3 version)
Author: Rachael Sabotini ([personal profile] wickedwords)
Fandoms: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Hardison/Spencer
Summary: "You conferenced my freak out?"
Written for 7Iris in [community profile] 3_ships 2009, Prompt: Confidence

A/N: Many thanks to Sherrold, sabaceanbabe and Movies_Michelle for their fabulous beta work. I had a blast writing this, and if you get a chance to write for 3Ships next year, you should do it. Also, if you have thoughts on any tags I should add to my story on AO3, let me know!

I wrote Better Than A Dream for SaraJaye this year, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's The Simpsons, and SaraJaye asked for femslash between Lisa Simpson and Juliet Hobbes, set years from now, when they are both in college.

And in an amazing dash of synchronicity, she also asked for no porn. Guys, she asked for PG rated femslash! ::flails hands excitedly:: It's my natural environment! I was so excited to get the request that I'd caplock, but it might be undignified.

Anyway, it thrilled me to write balls out romance, no stopping for go, no collecting $200. There's a wiff of angst in it, but not much, and writing it made me very happy. It's something I would never have done on my own, but writing it turned out to be as much of a gift for me as I think it was for its recipient.

I also want to say thank you to my two gift writers, Merriman for Breathe, my Lark/Rosethorn treat, and AntigravityDevice, who wrote my main Alan/Billy story, In The Blink of A Thunderbird. It was utterly awesome to be able to read both of these on Christmas day, and thank you both for writing a story for me.

This Side of the Mountain
My [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match story for this year, a fusion with World War Z

Steal Some Covers
My Leverage/Highlander crossover PWP, which is all about Amanda/Parker fun

Since I count the yuletide stories as part of the writing year that the reveal happened, I also posted my yuletide/sga santa stories:

Maid of Awesome
My The Middleman pinch hit from yuletide 2008, a short Wendy/The Middleman snippet.

Patrick and the Flim-Flam Man
My A Dog's Breakfast/Stargate Atlantis AU from yuletide, 2008. Patrick/John

Zelenka's Feast
Another Stargate Atlantis AU, witten for SGA Santa 2008. Lorne/Zelenka is the primary pairing, with a background McKay/Sheppard, and possible Carter/Mitchell.

And a bonus:

Trees are Tricky Things
Yet another A Dog's Breakfast story, this one written as a pinch hit for yuletide 2007. Again, Patrick/John Sheppard AU.

*whew* They might not all be on my personal archive, but at least they're all archived someplace now.

Title: Zelenka's Feast
Author: Rachael Sabotini ([personal profile] wickedwords)
Main Pairing: Lorne/Zelenka. Includes other background relationships, and some characters from SG-1.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Catering by the Kitchen Physicists.

Author's Note: I fell down on the job and didn't post any stories after the reveal last December, so I'm trying to catch up. This was written for the 2008 [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa challenge. I'm not sure why I decided to go with crackfic this year; I think I just wanted to do something different. So gblvr, thank you so much for putting up with my experimentation, and for letting me make Zelenka a little more insecure than canon would support. Many thanks to [personal profile] sherrold and [personal profile] elynross, my 'go to girls' for beta duty. All remaining errors are my own, and if you spot something, email me in private, so I can clean it up.

Title: Patrick and the Flim-Flam Man
Author: Rachael Sabotini ([personal profile] wickedwords)
Fandom: I think this needs an explanation. It's based on A Dog's Breakfast, which included references to a tv show, Starcrossed. And as we know, many SciFi TV shows end up having conventions centered around them, and some of those are ones where the actors show up. So, this is a universe with some or all of those elements: A Dog's Breakfast, Starcrossed, Stargate Atlantis, Sci-Fi conventions, RPS, and maybe some meta.

But if the thought of that makes your head hurt, just call it an SGA AU, and everything will be fine.

Other info: Patrick/John | PG-13 | 6450 words
Summary: Patrick was a free spirit, a rebel who liked to sort his fruit loops by color, while John was the stunt coordinator of Starcrossed, a late night sci-fi soap opera.

A/N: Thanks to blueraccoon, pouncer, Nicole V, elynross and Michelle Christian for the betas. It took a whole team to bring this one together, and all remaining mistakes are my own. This was written for Sidrin in yuletide 2008, and I am so sorry it took me so long to post.

Other Info: A series of three interconnected vignettes:
  • Timing: Chuck
  • Temerity: Lorne/Zelenka
  • Tupperware: John&Rodney
    Summary: A Day on Atlantis

    A/N: This wasn't exactly what I started out to write. Initially, this was supposed to be 5 different drabbles, posted at the end of summer, but instead all the prompts were merged into a single set of three snapshot vignettes. As a whole, this got a lot longer than I expected, and I had to take liberties with some of the prompts. So much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wordwitch, [livejournal.com profile] gblvr, [livejournal.com profile] indybaggins, [livejournal.com profile] wyomingnot, and [livejournal.com profile] losyarc for their suggestions, and I hope you enjoy this. Sorry I was so late getting it done. Special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sherrold for her beta help. Full prompts are listed here.

    Other info: Duncan/Methos | PG-13 | Death warning | 1200 words
    Summary: Four seasons
    A/N: This summer, I took several prompts that I was going to write drabbles for. Instead, 4 of the HL ones became triple drabbles and wove themselves into a story for me, based on the seasons of the year. Prompts from [livejournal.com profile] dswdiane, [livejournal.com profile] thepouncer, [livejournal.com profile] anoel, and [livejournal.com profile] lferion are listed at the end of the story. Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] elynross and [livejournal.com profile] sherrold for their mad beta skills. All remaining typos are my own.

    Title: Beast of Burden (link goes to mcshep_match community)
    Author: Rachael Sabotini ([livejournal.com profile] wickedwords)
    Other info: McKay/Sheppard | PG-13 | 4280 words
    Summary: Rodney was reeducated, given a good job far from the capital city.

    A/N: I know I am late to the reveal again, but I wrote "Beast of Burden" for 2008's [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match. I love the challenge--I think I do some of my best work with fixed prompts and formats--and I really like the way the story turned out. It wasn't what I had started with, as my first idea was to do a John POV, but that story would have fit better with the home team, so I had to revamp things to make it fit with being on the "away team".

    Along the way, I picked up inspiration from three different songs:

    Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone"
    Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge"
    U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name"

    You can probably pick out which song I was listening to as you read along.

    Thanks to the team of [livejournal.com profile] sherrold, [livejournal.com profile] blueraccoon, [livejournal.com profile] quasar273 and [livejournal.com profile] ldyanne for beta duty. All remaining typos and plot holes are my own.
