FIC: Underestimated

Title: Underestimated
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Nite Owl, Rorschach
Date Written: 2015
Summary: The fledgling Rorschach-Nite Owl Team make a rookie mistake that comes very close to being the death of them. Being underestimated is a terrible feeling, but it's important to know when to use it instead of fighting it.
Rating/Warnings: PG, nothing even shippy here, they are just protective best buds fighting crime.
Notes: Written in response to one of dr_oil's pchat doodles from a year or so ago. Written entirely into the reply textbox; editted only slightly since. Man I am just glad to be writing ANY fanfiction again, so I don't wanna hear that this is unoriginal rescue fic, I am too happy to be writing.

The sound of Nite Owl’s boots slamming into the hollow wooden floors is deafening to him–a reverberating, booming cacophony that blooms into something louder and more terrifying with every step.Collapse )

FIC: Vigil (8/?)

Title: Vigil
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters: Dan, Rorschach, Hollis cameo, misc bad guys.
Date written: 2010-2014 hahaha wow I SUCK
Summary: The most important skill a masked vigilante can cultivate is how to fall and come right back up. When Nite Owl and Rorschach run into a trigger-happy gang, Nite Owl finds he's able to push that skill to the extreme--even if he has no idea how or why. AKA, the one where Dan just won't stay dead and Rorschach is Freaking Out.
Notes: Originally for a KM prompt asking for 'Highlander-style immortality', though I didn't actually make it a crossover. No swords and shit here, just a very confused owl.
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13 I think. A lot of blood and injuries and deaaaattthhhhhh. Some of it's temporary, some of it's not. Language, some offensive dialogue.

Chapter 8: Haunting
It is from here, some indeterminate place between the top of the staircase and the bottom, that they begin to make their stand.Collapse )

FIC: Just One Wish

Title: Just One Wish
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Blair Roche
Date Written: 2013? I think?
Summary: Living and dead are less mutually exclusive categories than they seem, and that fact makes for strange companions.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for all the known awfulness of the Roche case and for disturbing imagery.
Notes: Originally was going to be a long fic, the plot of which came to me as a result of the video for Royksopp's 'What Else is There?'. In the end, I never wrote more than this ficlet, which I posted to the KM in response to a call for ghost fic for Halloween. So. I suck? But I still like this.

She can smell them, even this far out. Something on the wind—fear, yes, but helplessness and pain and the desperation of being too small, always too small, has its own scent.Collapse )

Chapter 7: Ill of the Dead
They pause at the riverside, hovering at the last point of departure, the last place Rorschach can easily walk away to keep his own company for the morning.Collapse )

Chapter 6: Sacrificial Creatures
It"s just enough time to hone in on the man holding the knife before he lurches out of the shadows. It"s not enough time to actually dodge. Collapse )

Chapter 5: Incantatum
In the end, they wind up around the table again, running through a pot of coffee as the last unraveling rays of sunset spend themselves against the skyline.Collapse )

Chapter 4: Periculous mortum
"I promise you," Daniel says, forceful, and it disgusts Rorschach how willing he is to believe whatever comes next. "It"ll be okay."Collapse )

Chapter 3: Forensics
Rorschach could be deaf except that he can hear his own breath, and it takes a moment for him to remember why he is here, without his mask, sleeping in this tomb-silent house.Collapse )

Chapter 2: From the Ashes
It must have all been a dream. That"s the only thing that makes sense, the only idea with enough reality-roughened edges for him to get a handhold on.Collapse )

what this is.


This is a fic journal for the most part, with some art on the side and a sprinkling of personal posts here and there. I don't write as much as I used to, but I try.
