kindkit: Tintin with his arm around Captain Haddock (Tintin: embrace)
This, believe it or not, is a ficlet project story. The last ficlet requestor, [livejournal.com profile] brewsternorth, pooled hir request with [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose and [personal profile] vilakins to ask for a longer Tintin story. Two months later . . . well, it's certainly longer than a ficlet.

Title: One Small Step
Fandom: Tintin
Pairing: Tintin/Haddock
Rating: Teen
Warnings: I've followed Hergé's statement that Tintin is about 17 in the later comics. This makes him underage by some laws (including Belgian law at the time), but there's no sex in this story. Also, it's set in the early 1950s and some of the attitudes reflect that.
Word count: 9473
Summary: Going to the moon is the simple part.
Notes: This is set during Objectif: Lune and On a marché sur la Lune (aka Destination: Moon and Explorers on the Moon) and may not make much sense if you're not familiar with those albums. I've used the French forms of names and my own versions of Haddock's French oaths because I prefer them to the ones in the English translations. The medical stuff (hi, [livejournal.com profile] halotolerant!) is grossly inaccurate, I'm sure; I followed canon on that even when it seemed ridiculous, and for the rest just made stuff up. Finally, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose for a thoughtful and helpful beta.

Title: Aubade
Fandom: Reginald Hill's Dalziel and Pascoe novels
Pairing: Wield/Pascoe
Rating: Teen
Warnings: None
Word count: 300
Summary: The sun is rising.
Notes: I've often thought about an AU where Ellie leaves Peter after the events of Underworld, and Wield and Peter get together. This, I'm afraid, is the least happy version of it. Written for [livejournal.com profile] wishfulaces, whose prompt was Wield, Pascoe, and sunlight.

Title: The Fly in the Ointment
Fandom: Tintin
Characters: Milou (aka Snowy), Tintin/Haddock
Rating: All ages
Warnings: None
Word count: 350
Summary: Everything has changed.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] miss_morland, who asked for Tintin/Haddock from an outside POV. Um, the dog has an interior monologue in canon, OK? Also, I've used Milou's French name because (a) I'm reading Tintin in French, and (b) on the whole I like the French names better than the translated ones.

Word count: 300
Summary: Of thirst.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] halotolerant, who is entirely to blame for my new interest in slashing old children's comics. So far I've only read The Crab With the Golden Claws, which this drabble is set shortly after; apologies if anything here is wrong according to later canon.

Title: The Patrician's Servant
Fandom: Discworld
Characters: Drumknott (implied Drumknott/Vetinari)
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Character death, grieving.
Word count: 200
Summary: Some things are stronger than death. They're not necessarily the things you expect.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose, who asked for Drumknott after Vetinari's death. This is set in the same universe as Midwinter but isn't necessarily "canonical" to it, if that makes sense. It's one way things might turn out.

Summary: Tyler causes trouble even when he's not around. Maybe especially then.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] pinkdormouse, who asked for slashy Sam & Gene friendship and "another fine mess you've got us into." Set ca. S2 or possibly post-show. I should mention that I never watched Ashes to Ashes and this fic ignores everything I've heard about it.

Notes: Written for [personal profile] lilacsigil, whose prompt was Darwin and escape. This veered away a bit thematically but I think still responds to the prompt. Also, I know nothing about Darwin's comicsverse background; everything here is my own speculation based on what we see in XMFC.

I feel like it's time for another round of the ficlet project, so here goes. (The explanation below of how it works is mostly copied from my last post on the subject.)

How It Works

The first commenter on this post, on DW or LJ, gets to request a ficlet by naming a fandom, a character or pairing, and a brief prompt (perhaps a word or phrase, perhaps a situation or time period, even a structure or writing style--I just ask that you don't give me a highly specific plot or a prompt that's too detailed for a 100-word drabble). I'll write a short piece (100-1000 words) and post it in a day or two. Then the first commenter on that post gets to request the next ficlet. (You do NOT have to make a substantive comment on the posted ficlet in order to request, so don't feel obliged if you don't know or like the fandom, the pairing, or whatever.)

Anyone can request; this isn't limited to people whose journals I read. The only rule about requesting is that I'd prefer not to write two ficlets for the same person in the same round. So once I've written something for you in this round, please hold back to give others a chance.

I'd love to get a variety of fandoms and prompt types, but there are a few things I don't write: sexually explicit m/f and f/f, rape, pairings where one or both partners are under 14, heavy kink or BDSM (e.g. anything involving special equipment, serious pain, danger, unusual body fluids).

Otherwise, feel free to be creative in your request. If you request something I can't deliver, I'll just ask for a different prompt.

Fandoms

I'm interested in a lot of fandoms. So rather than give you a comprehensive list, I'm going to tell you what fandoms I don't want to write at the moment. Prompts in fandoms that I'm familiar with but haven't written in are welcome (if you're not sure if I know a fandom, go ahead and ask!).

List of fandoms not to request, please )

The first commenter on this post gets to make the first request. Given that it's late night in the US and early morning in the UK, this probably gives a certain advantage to folks in later time zones. I'll try to vary posting times as much as I can manage.

ETA: A request has been made (on DW)!
kindkit: A late-Victorian futuristic zeppelin. (Doctor Who: 3 fashionable)
Title: Anti/Thesis
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Delgado!Master/Third Doctor, in a way
Rating: All ages
Warnings: None needed
Word count: 100
Summary: The theory and practice of opposition.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] stunt_muppet, whose prompt was "motifs."

I'm now taking a new request. The first commenter on DW or LJ can name a fandom (see here on DW or here on LJ for a list of fandoms I can write), a character or pairing, and a brief prompt.
kindkit: A late-Victorian futuristic zeppelin. (Doctor Who: thoughtful Second Doctor)
Title: Culloden
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters: Jamie McCrimmon, Second Doctor
Rating: All ages
Warnings: None needed
Word count: 100
Summary: History, truth, and entertainment.
Notes: Written for [personal profile] ellen_fremedon, whose prompt was "costume drama." The program Jamie and the Doctor are watching is Peter Watkins's Culloden, which aired on the BBC in 1964. I haven't actually seen it and have no idea if it's guilty of the inaccuracies Jamie notes.
