merryghoul: fi the best (fi the best)
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."

Notes: For kink meme fills, reccer chooses not to warn. For other fics, notes and warnings can be found in the headers of those fics.

Oh, how I miss Common Law. Common Law was a show that aired on the USA Network in 2012. It was about two detectives named Travis and Wes who were sent to couples therapy to work out their issues in between solving crimes. Over the course of the show, we learned more about Travis, Wes, and the issues that divided the two of them. The show was canceled that same year because of low ratings--low ratings that, ironically, don't look too bad now compared to most everything that's still currently on USA Network.

Although the fandom's small and mostly dead because of its one season on USA, I was able to put together a list of fics that focuses on Travis and Wes going to therapy in some way.

the recs, because I couldn't think of anything I wanted to fic for this )

So originally I wanted to do a meta on Jesse in Season 4 of Burn Notice for [community profile] hc_bingo. But upon second thought, I can't really put that meta in my [community profile] hc_bingo square. So I won't be doing that.

But while I was writing "Aftermath of the Storm," my mind wandered to a fic I wrote last year, "It's Business." Originally I wanted to make that a part of a two-part series called "Tales From Brickell," where the final part would have the team face off against James Kendrick...as a team, not "Michael has to do this or the team suffers," or however the show framed it. And I was going to do it for Het Big Bang, if it started up again. And it didn't.

In part thanks to my friend [personal profile] hollymarchosias and her 8tracks move, I want to revive that series. I'm thinking it'll be a four part series called "The Last Job." The next part (part 2) will most likely begin after the events of "It's Business" and follow parts ("parts" meaning AUs of three episodes, not every single episode James was in) of the James Kendrick storyline from Season 7. I'm going to take out all the new characters introduced in Season 7 other than James and Andrew Strong (and Burke in the first fic) out because...oh, geez, I think I counted at least 13 new characters that were added in Season 7 last year, and I can't write them all.

Look for part two when I'm done writing it, I guess. But I aim to finish the story this year, just before this round of [community profile] hc_bingo ends.

And I also should start a fic index for Burn Notice here, since I have a few Burn Notice-related series under my belt, and over 100 fics to boot.

I never wrote this while I'm supposed to be writing my Rare Pair Fest fic, by the way.

Fandom: Burn Notice
Wordcount: 3466
Rating: Explicit
Character(s): Michael Westen, Fiona Glenanne, Sam Axe, Jesse Porter, Madeline Westen
Pairing(s): Michael Westen/Fiona Glenanne, Michael Westen/Fiona Glenanne/Sam Axe
Contains: sexual content, very minor past character deaths mentioned
Prompt(s):
[community profile] hc_bingo: loss of home / shelter
fic_promptly: Any, Any, The end of the world does not mean the end of humanity.
Notes: This story is a fork-in-the-road apocafic, set during and after the episode "Center of the Storm," where there was a canonical hurricane threatening Miami. There's a mention of a past violent incident from the episode "Psychological Warfare." But no canon knowledge is needed to read this fic at all.
Summary: Michael and his friends rebuild their lives after a hurricane and a massive flood hits Miami.

I changed my theme on Dreamwidth because of the changes on the navbar. Everything on my old theme's navbar was squished. I settled for one of the older themes (and not the Dreamwidth version of my old theme) instead. It should be okay for my eyes at least.

merryghoul: fi and jesse (fi and jesse)
My friend [personal profile] hollymarchosias is making a break from some fannish activity she's done in the past. Today she took down her Fiona/Jesse fanmix from 8Tracks.

However, she's forwarding the text she had for her fanmix/manifesto to me. What I plan to do is to flesh out her manifesto and probably use it for hc_bingo, since I have a square or two that would fit well with it.

A post to thank some people in fandom. Let's see...

  • Although it's more or less dead, the Burn Notice fandom for being mostly excellent all those years. (Except for a few wanky people, but they can be easily ignored.)

  • The [livejournal.com profile] who_daily staff for being awesome.

  • The Abuse staff at AO3 for stepping in when I needed someone to mediate between myself and another user. I am forever grateful to you.
  • merryghoul: fall road (fall road)
    All recs in Press Gang:

  • Lynda, Kenny: Telecommunications by [archiveofourown.org profile] MirandaBeth. The dangers of change. (A pre Season 3 ficlet.)

  • Lynda, Kenny: Of Lists, Spies and Paths Not Taken by [archiveofourown.org profile] MirandaBeth. "She’s quite nice, though, your friend Sarah," said Kenny from behind his science textbook in the library, casually and apropos of nothing. (Set pre-series)

  • Cast: End of the World News by [fanfiction.net profile] unoriginal-elizabeth. It's the end of the world, AND it's a Monday - but people still show up for work.

    I've also started an account at Fanfiction.net: [fanfiction.net profile] merryghoul. But I'm only going to archive and comment on works there. My works are way too raunchy for FF.net.
  • merryghoul: fi with flower gun (fi with flower gun)
    Today's recs, in Sleepy Hollow and Burn Notice:

  • Ichabod/Abbie, Jenny: Three Gifts by [personal profile] carriemac. Ichabod struggles with Moloch's claim about Abbie's soul, while Abbie tries to forget her worries and get into the holiday spirit. Jenny just wants them to figure out they're into each other. Takes place right after "The Golem."

  • Ichabod/Abbie: Come and See by [archiveofourown.org profile] blindmadness. Abbie and Ichabod face the Four Horsemen.

  • Fiona, Michael: Scrambled by [archiveofourown.org profile] Evil_Little_Dog. Fiona’s ready for something other than yogurt.

  • Fiona: Holding Up by [archiveofourown.org profile] petunia846. "She's tired, she's scared, and she's not eating enough…and somebody's trying to kill her." A short description of how Fiona's holding up in prison.
  • merryghoul: torchwood (team countrycide)
    All recs from [community profile] jukebox_fest, which is a songfic fest. The last round finished a while ago; hopefully, there'll be one next year.

    Come Again Some Other Day by [archiveofourown.org profile] apatternedfever. In a town where it never rains, there's a woman who talks to the sky. Well. Once there was, anyway. (Based on Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine.")

    Recs, all Doctor Who, all from Teaspoon:

  • Five, older!Nyssa, Tegan, Turlough, Ainsley!Master: Master's Thesis by helluin (WIP). Tegan spars with the Master while Turlough and the Doctor hunt for a pesky temporal anomaly. There's gotta be a TOMTIT around here somewhere, right?

  • Ten, others: Practically Perfect by Splash of Blue. Silents in the nursery do not bode well for the future of Earth; luckily, however, there is at least one Time Lady who is willing to do what must be done. To tidy matters up. (Doctor Who/Mary Poppins crossover)

  • Ten/Tosh, others: Talking Shop by 51stCenturyFox. "Jack told me about you. Said you're brilliant. Didn't mention sneaky. Does he know you're sneaky?" (Crossover with Torchwood.)

    Come play!



    Today's recs:

  • Orphan Black, Alison/Beth: Girls With Guns by [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan. The first time Alison allows Beth to teach her how to use guns she was nervous.

  • Doctor Who, Eighth Doctor, Cass: Could Have Been by [personal profile] paynesgrey. The Doctor is resolved to find his own peace from the war, but it may not be that easy.

  • Doctor Who, Rory, Amy: The First Day by [livejournal.com profile] irishvampire13. Rory can't offer her more than a lifetime. How can that measure up to all the years the Doctor can show her?
  • merryghoul: five + peri (five peri coa 2)
    1) (The following only affects all of my works from Doctor Who and Torchwood up until a certain point.) I've taken off all my works from A Teaspoon and an Open Mind. I have no desire to use that archive again, and I haven't used that archive in a couple of years or so. I'm not editing my works to take the links out unless I spot them and want to edit them out. I could start a new Teaspoon account for my stuff, since my first account was linked to my old username at LJ and Dreamwidth. But I don't see myself doing that any time soon.

    2) I decided to write a treat for [archiveofourown.org profile] Thursday_Next for this year's Jukebox exchange:

    Hector's Street (1396 words) by merryghoul
    Chapters: 1/1
    Fandom: First of the Gang - Morrissey (Song)
    Rating: Mature
    Warnings: Major Character Death
    Additional Tags: Gangs, Homophobia, Violence, Guns
    Summary:How Hector stole the hearts of everyone he knew.

    3) Making a note of this while I'm thinking about it: if I'm doing Yuletide this year, I'm going to request In the Flesh. And The Last Game, since I want to know what happened to the players in this short before they played, well, their last game. (And maybe cartoon!LeBron.)
