Apocalyptothon is back!  It is maybe my favorite writing challenge, which may say something sad about me.  To celebrate, I have added an "apocalypse" tag to my journal.  Although really, it would be better to just go read those stories at AO3.  (Someday I'll AO3-ify Civil Defense, too).

I have fic!  This is exciting because my requests or entries to exchanges often get defaulted upon--maybe I'm just really hard to write for?, maybe my prompts suck?  But everyone gets a story for Remix, and this one is mine!  It's Supernatural, based on a drabble I don't even remember writing, which is in turn based on an episode I don't remember at all.  So don't read it as a remix (although it is a fine one), just enjoy it as its own story!

[I will edit this once the authors are revealed, and post links to my own remix entries, which are pretty obviously mine...you'll recognize me when you read me]

Title: War Poetry  (Part 4--the end)
Fandom:Generation Kill (very AU)
Characters: Brad/Nate,  references to others
Ratings: NC-17 in past, this part very PG

Disclaimer: More WWII AU. Totally fictitious...vaguely based on the characters portrayed in the miniseries and various things I've read about the time period.  Part 1 is here. This part definitely not Brit-picked, so consider yourselves warned.


"Courage and Hope for the Future"Collapse )

Title: War Poetry  (Part 3)
Fandom:Generation Kill (very AU)
Characters: Brad/Nate,  references to others
Ratings: NC-17 in past, this part very PG

Disclaimer: More WWII AU. Totally fictitious...vaguely based on the characters portrayed in the miniseries and various things I've read about the time period.  Part 1 is here. I'm not sure if this bit was Brit-picked, so consider yourselves warned.

Title: War Poetry  (Part 2)
Fandom:Generation Kill (very AU)

Ratings: yeah, now we're NC-17

Disclaimer: More WWII AU. Totally fictitious...vaguely based on the characters portrayed in the miniseries and various things I've read about the time period.  Part 1 is here.  I'm not sure if this bit was Brit-picked, so consider yourselves warned.

21st-Apr-2014 04:02 pm - "Young Men Make Wars"
ferris wheel
Title: War Poetry  (Part 1)
Fandom:Generation Kill (very AU)
Characters: Brad/Nate,  references to others
Ratings: R (this part), NC-17 in future

Disclaimer: Totally fictitious...vaguely based on the characters portrayed in the miniseries and various things I've read about the time period.  Do I even need to say that the entire thing is completely made up? amoama Brit-picked the first bit. This is the conclusion to the WWII AU I started here for a gk kink meme prompt, and which I continued here. You should probably read at least the first story for this to make sense, but (spoilers)to summarize...Collapse )
Notes: The cut tags are from the movie "Lawrence of Arabia" (desert warfare during WWI) and the epigraph is adapted from Karl Marlantes's Matterhorn (Vietnam war)

"young men make wars"Collapse )

Title: Mind the Gap (part 5)
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Characters: Sherlock, John, Lestrade, assorted police
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Sherlock, John, and a dead body in a Tube station.  Wait--Sherlock in a Tube station?
Notes & warnings: Set post-Great Game, but this part contains no spoilers.  A work-in-progress, full of wacky American spellings and made-up details about London.

Title: The Nine Irregular Adjectives (part 2 of 2)
Fandom: Generation Kill (AU)
Characters: Nate, Ray, some Brad
Ratings: PG-15 (Brad/Nate established relationship)
Notes: More High school AU. This falls between How to Take a Test and Commencement Means Beginning. It has a sort of piece-meal structure, like Test. The epigraph is by Rita Mae Brown, and the cut-tag is from the same poem.  Here's part 1


...not parlor generals and field desertersCollapse )

Title: The Nine Irregular Adjectives (part 1 of 2--it's not that long, really, and part 2 is finished, but LJ is being weird about cut lengths)
Fandom: Generation Kill (AU)
Characters: Nate, Ray, some Brad
Ratings: PG-15 (Brad/Nate established relationship)
Notes: More High school AU. This falls between How to Take a Test and Commencement Means Beginning. It has a sort of piece-meal structure, like Test. The epigraph is by Rita Mae Brown, and the cut-tag is from yet another poem.

Title: Commencement Means Beginning
Fandom: Generation Kill (AU)
Characters: Nate, Ray, some Brad
Ratings: PG-15 (Brad/Nate established relationship)
Notes: More High school AU.  acchikocchi requested a timestamp for How to Take a Test ("Graduation and/or end-of-the-year results at Mathilda Memorial High School, perhaps? Or: Ray comes back to visit post-graduation. Or a combination of the above") and be_cum seconded it.  And of course it quickly grew beyond any comment limit.  So I'm just posting it here. The epigraph is a quote by William Butler Yeats and the cut tag comes from Gary Whitehead's excellent poem.

one summer, one year, when you were youngCollapse )
