Apparently for about a year or so, I misread this exchange from "Long Way Back:"

Fiona: I met O'Neill while I was looking for the man who killed my sister. [...] I don't like to talk about it. [...] When she was taken, I was angry and I was loud.


So instead of a canonical mixup with a kidnapping in "Long Way Back" and the mention of the English solider that killed Fi's sister in another, Fiona was talking about her sister passing in the above passage. Mea culpa.

I'll correct this in my Michael/Fiona meta for [community profile] hc_bingo, and I'll make sure to correct this in my [community profile] shipmanifestos draft for my, well, Michael/Fiona ship manifesto. I've always wanted to write a Michael/Fiona manifesto since the last [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers ship manifesto round, but by the time I had gotten to the post (I was out when it went up), someone had taken Michael/Fiona. (And I was so incensed by the manifesto at the time that I wrote the meta I mentioned above.) I took Parker/Hardison from Leverage instead. And while I like Parker/Hardison, my heart still belongs to Michael/Fiona. So I'm going to take advantage of the [community profile] shipmanifestos community and write the manifesto of my dreams.

Meanwhile, this has caused a bit of a hiccup in my [community profile] polybigbang fic, because I was planning to have O'Neill and Fiona share some sort of house together. Back to the drawing board.

[This has been a correction that became a damning rant. Apologies again.]

I've decided to write a fic for [community profile] polybigbang while possibly working on [community profile] femslashex and other things, and just before Yuletide.

It's the fic I've been struggling to write--a post-series poly fic for Burn Notice. I've been struggling with it since [community profile] unconventionalcourtship and [community profile] kidficstory. But this time, I have a different angle for it. It won't be a sequel to "We're the McBrides" because of the way I'm trying to fix some canon discontinuity in the fic. And the fic is Michael/Sam/Jesse/Fiona, rather than Michael/Sam/Fiona. But I still have Thomas O'Neill, alias "cop guy on Arrow now," as the villain. Hopefully this works.

Some things going on in late August/early fall that I'm reminding myself of, for reasons I want to keep vague. No, not Yuletide. Everyone finds out about Yuletide sooner or later. I think.

1) [community profile] journeystory is still accepting author signups until fic drafts are due on November 2nd:


[community profile] journeystory & [community profile] journeystory

Authors Sign Up & Artists Sign Up @ LJ
Authors Sign Up & Artists Sign Up @ DW


2) [community profile] polybigbang is now accepting author signups until fic drafts are due on November 12th. Artist claims will be on November 15th.

3) [community profile] femslashex will start signups on the 24th.


4) The Femslash Kink Meme ([community profile] femslash_kink) is coming back...soon. Soon. No dates yet.


5) [community profile] ladiesbingo will start signups on September 1.


There might be other things soon, but they might be announced in September, like [community profile] intoabar and [personal profile] spook_me, so I'll wait for those.

I was working so hard on finishing my series and cleaning up my AO3 account that I forgot to share my gift (I forgot to say it was my gift earlier; I didn't write this) fic here!

AU that diverges from the Season 6 finale as well as parts of Season 7. Michael works his job in the Dominican Republic shortly after rejoining the CIA under suspicious circumstances, leading the team to unite to free themselves from the CIA's clutches.

For this series, I cut out a lot of characters that were seen in season 7, such as Sonya, Charlie and Carlos, only because I didn't have roles for them in this AU. The series focuses on the team trying to free themselves from Strong and the CIA while battling with Burke and James.

At the moment, since "It's Business" was written before Burn Notice ended, there are some canonical inconsistencies. They're minor inconsistencies, but I'll see if I want to revise them at a later point in time.

It's Business * Meeting James Kendrick * Freeing Burke * The Woods

I decided to finally change my AO3 username to [archiveofourown.org profile] merryghoul, since Rare Pair Fest reveals are happening and I wanted to change my name before [community profile] femslashex started up. I'm not sure why I didn't do it years ago. I guess I thought all my hyperlinks would break or something. IDK.

The final story for The Last CIA Job is coming, too. If it's not posted today, maybe it'll be posted tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.

Hi! I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] merryghoul. I put recs up at [pinboard.in profile] merryghoul, but by no means are you obligated to go through those recs to create anything for me.

Here are my likes and dislikes:

General likes: casefic, bondage, hurt/comfort, canon AUs, noir AUs, fairy tale and/or mythology AUs, angst, fluff, apocalypses/dystopias, zombies, curtainfic, knifeplay, begging, vanilla sex, vacations (gone wrong and gone right), porn and PWPs, bloodplay, gunplay, crackfics, the friends to lovers trope, enemies fighting each other while in a relationship, banter, tattoos, femdom, darkfic, magical people and worlds, pretend couples.

General dislikes: Character bashing, characters constantly getting hurt, vomitplay, fics in the second person, unwanted crossovers, ABO, high school AUs, mundane AUs for sci-fi/fantasy canons, schmoop.

(If you need any clarification, don't be afraid to ask me a question through the mods--I'll be happy to help.)

I've provided prompts, but if you can't work with them, feel free to write/draw anything you wish. Also, any canonical male/female pairings can be ignored or broken up if you feel you need to do that for these pairings to work.

I have seen all episodes aired for everything I'm requesting; see the notes on Doctor Who for other spin-off stuff.

oh, look, there's a cut )
merryghoul: fi and jesse (fi and jesse)
For the [community profile] hc_bingo prompt "skeletons in the closet." 2807 words. Content notes: contains brief mentions of domestic violence, kidnapping and torture as well as canon-typical violence. Title comes from a quote from Extras.

Imagine working in intelligence. You like your job and you're taking advantage of your job to figure out a mystery that's been haunting you for years. After screwing up once in the field, you're given another chance in counterintelligence. Then your second chance is taken away from you from circumstances you don't understand. You team up with people who have a reputation of fixing problems on the sly to get your job back. But there's a twist: they're the ones that cost you the job. This is what Jesse Porter has to deal with in the fourth season of Burn Notice, when he's first introduced in the series.

It's here.

Thinking about linking all my non-series index posts to a ~pinned post on at least Dreamwidth. But my eyes are glazed over right now--I also deleted several posts to cut down on bloating my journal's tags. Let me think about it.
merryghoul: NYC (NYC 1)
Content note: All of these recs deal with a potentially triggery prompt, which I've put under gray text. These recs are Blair Waldorf-centric, and deal with her bulimia. Discussion of these recs also deals with certain aspects of bulimia and/or other eating disorders. Reccer chooses not to warn for any other content found in these stories.

Still organizing a master post for my Burn Notice fanworks. I decided to re-read something I wrote back in 2012, The Confession, when this phrase jumped out at me:

(Michael, to Fiona) "You weigh around 125 pounds. I can't hold you up forever, and if I put you on something, we're going to break it."

And then I remembered one of the hilariously bad news graphics from the series finale, "Reckoning," which aired in 2013:



If you can't read the news graphic, it says:

it's a lengthy blockquote )

I'm sure this was a coincidence. I think.

A very loose series of stories set after season three of Burn Notice. What if Parker and Fiona were friends and decided to help each other out in Miami while Michael's been kidnapped?

I was putting together my Burn Notice masterpost and deleting some posts in my journal when I noticed this fic was never posted here. It was posted at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic and [community profile] femslash100, but never here. However, it's up on AO3. It's also the first part of a series I'll have a masterpost for Dreamwidth made for soon, The Man Down Jobs.

Title: People Watching
Prompt: #325, glass (for femslash100 ; also for comment_fic)
Fandom: Burn Notice/Leverage
Pairing: Fiona Glenanne/Parker
Rating: PG
Word count: 100
Summary: How not to people watch on South Beach.

After Fiona picked her friend Parker up from the airport, they drove to Carlito's, where Parker ordered two glasses of whiskey.

Parker picked up the empty rocks glasses and started looking through them, as if they were binoculars.

"What are you doing, Parker?" Fiona said.

"I'm people watching."

"Parker, you can't watch people through rocks glasses."

"You told me to look at people wearing bikinis while I was on South Beach, and I didn't bring binoculars."

"That's because I told you not to bring binoculars."

Fiona sighed. She flagged down a nearby waitress. "I'll have another Bloody Mary please. Thanks."

This is everything that's not friends-locked on my journal, other comms or friends-locked on AO3. I would prefer anything friends-locked here, on other journals and/or on AO3 not be shared outside of this journal and/or AO3. Also, there have been some works I've written that have since been deleted/orphaned. I won't link to those specific works here, and if you know what they are, I ask that, if you're sharing them, please don't associate me to those works.
