FIC: Vigil (1/12)

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 1: Penance
Rorschach's already whirlwinded through denial and bargaining, his throat sore from all his pleas and promises, dropping empty and unanswered to the city asphalt.Collapse )

FIC: Thermodynamic Miracles

Title: Thermodynamic Miracles
Fandom: Watchmen Z!verse
Characters/Pairings: Dan/Z!Rorschach
Date Written: 2009-2013 (yeah, it really took that long. Sorry.)
Summary: Keene Act fic. A city’s betrayal, the terrifying effects of that betrayal on the real night-to-night struggle, and all the ways they have always been good at breaking the rules.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 I guess? Some near-death h/c.
Notes: Wow, so, I started this during the big snowstorm in 2009 right after finishing up NaB. Then abandoned it. Now finished it. Yeah.

They don't talk about it that night, and they don't talk about it the night after, or the night after.Collapse )
A random prompt on Tumblr asked for Minutemen zombies; I wrote the promised vignette but there seems to have been interest for more? So I started writing more, and wow, I am having so much fun. But I'd like to keep this informal, so, see the comment section below for pieces of this as I finish them!


I've had to disable anonymous commenting, at least for now. My inbox is nothing but wall-to-wall spam these days, reams of junk comments I have to delete one by one, and it's getting unmanageable.

So I'll give the bots maybe... a month? To figure out that this journal is useless, then try turning them back on and see what happens.

Sorry about this to my legitimate anonymous commenters.


sort of like a writing meme but not really

An idea that struck me while I was stuck in class!

1) Pick a fic I've written.
2) Give me a twist - a different AU, different order of events, genderswap, character swap, whatever. More than one is okay as long as it's manageable!
3) Pick a scene or else leave it up to me and I'll pick one.

And I will rewrite a scene from that fic for you, using the requested twist.

HOWEVER I am a happy drunk tonight so: no permanent character death, no sad sad sad angst. :D

(Also: this is the part where i realize I only have like ten followers and hope fervently that some of them are actually around tonight, haha)


FIC: Night of the Living Street Pizza

Title: Night of the Living Street Pizza
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan, from the Possumschach AU
Date Written: 2012
Summary: Why am I using a full formal header for this crap? It's just possumschach being a zombie, idk idk.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for disgustingness and ridiculousness.
Notes: KM AU-mashup. Possumschach AU belongs to the anon who writes it (who may not be anon anymore, but I'm playing it safe here). This fic is completely pointless.

Oh god, he looks like roadkill.Collapse )

FIC: Engulfed

Title: Engulfed
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Dan
Date Written: 2012
Summary: Rorschach and Nite Owl and Molotov cocktails. Or: In Which Eth Completely Blows Off the Reality of Burn Injuries For the Sake of Fluffy H/C. Sorry, guys.
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for injuries? Idk idk.
Notes: Nothing new here, just an old unclaimed KM fic.

Rorschach is on fire.Collapse )

An appeal

I don't usually ask for help, but this time I don't have any choice. Two weeks ago, my SO's father killed himself, suddenly and unexpectedly and, even now, for no reason any of us can figure out. I've just spent those two weeks in New Jersey trying to help them sort out the legal and financial affairs, and we're both completely shellshocked and devastated here on top of all the procedural crap. Here's the rundown of financial facts:

-There's no life insurance
-The house is under water and on a reverse mortgage (more on this further down)
-The 401K's have all been drained
-$10,000 in back taxes owed
-There is no money, at all

On top of this, his widow has been mentally deteriorating for years now and can neither live alone nor can live with any of her children, none of whom have the space or are there all day to provide her the care she needs. The trauma of this event--she was there when it happened, in the house, trying to stop him--has accelerated her decline dramatically and she needs professional care. However, in most states her social security income is both woefully inadequate to pay for care and too high to qualify her for aid, because hey, I guess in the good ol' USA old ladies with dementia are also supposed to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, idek. I would be more furious if I had the energy for it.

Additionally, if the house sells for less than its appraised value--which it will, because who the hell wants to live in a house where something like this happened--she loses progressively more months of medicaid eligibility depending on how far under it sells for.

And even if she somehow kept her medicaid eligibility AND they were willing to cover her care--which they probably aren't--that 'care' would amount to them sticking her in a state-run institution, which is very close to being a prison. The only way out of this is to spend a lot of money now to get her situated somewhere nice, let the money run out, and bank on the government being reluctant to uproot and move her. But spending a lot of money requires having a lot of money, which we don't.

Add to this the fact that legally in NJ this kind of event requires sanctioned crime scene cleanup which charged such a grotesque amount of money I can't even type it out, and the fact that in order to keep the SO's mom from completely losing everything she had left I and the SO had to take on her two sick cats, both of which are chronically ill and one of which has diabetes, and build an outbuilding to house them in which runs somewhere around $5000 all told, and the SO's incoming MRI bill for unrelated medical problems on our end, and the fact that I had to spend almost my entire savings on last minute plane tickets to fly us out there when it was all I had to live off of for the next six months... and we are pretty fucking squarely screwed--me, the SO, his brother and his wife, their mom, the cats, everyone.

It is the perfect storm of misery and horrible life choices, and I need help, we need help. We need money to pay their bills, to pay the mortgage long enough to sell the house, to pay the backtaxes, to pay the ripoff cleanup people. We need money to guarantee their mother's care. We need money to pay our own medical bills, to pay for the cats' housing and bills, and I need money to fucking eat.

I know times are rough all around, and I know tragedies like this are happening every fucking day, but if you can help by donating even a tiny amount, I am swallowing my pride and asking. My paypal is etherati@gmail.com. If you can't, then if you could just pass this along I would really appreciate it. I really appreciate anyone even just reading this all the way to the end.

Thank you all.

FIC: The Center Only Holds(1/3?)

Title: The Center Only Holds
Fandom: Watchmen/Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Rorschach, Spades Slick. 
Date Written: 2012
Summary: Hold onto your memories, they say, because eventually they're all you have and they're yours, inalterable. Until they aren't. Or: two short, violent, irritable, noir-styled grumpasses meet in the afterlife.
Rating/Warnings: R for stabby stabbings and language, though not so much in this part. This part is most just deathbubble!Rorschach having existential issues.
Notes: FML, FML. Also: Art by liodain, gorgeous as always.

Rorschach doesn't expect anything in particular to happen to him, once Manhattan's hand comes down.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.
