Written for Round 1 of the Harlequin Big Bang over at [community profile] story_works. Inspired by the following prompt: “Character A is a famous pirate captain. His only goal in life: revenge. He wants to ruin to man who ruined him. One day Character B falls into his hands. He’s the son of the man he’s sworn to ruin. During the next weeks and some difficult situations, B feels more and more desire for A. Will he be able to make A forget his revenge or will B even help him?” Of course, my mind immediately went to our favorite cop / thief duo, though this time, the tables are a bit turned ;) Enjoy!

Warnings: Character Death(s), Graphic depiction of violence, mention of rape (of a female character) and of implied underage rape (of a male character), Period-typical racism, sexism and homophobia

Not betaed at the moment, and still in progress. I will add chapters and fix those already posted as I get them back from my lovely beta [personal profile] sherylyn.

Summary: A lot can change in a year – as Peter is about to notice when he sees Neal again.

Notes: Part of my Allison Caffrey Chronicles, starting towards the end of "Of Second Chances". Written for [community profile] gameofcards Challenge 8 and the prompt “Changes by David Bowie”. Enjoy!

Now that Phase 9 of [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards is over, I thought it would be nice to show you all the various artworks I've done for the challenges. A phase runs approximately 3 months and is filled with tons of fun! (you'll never believe how much creativity is hidden in yourself!) Warning: IMAGE-HEAVY!!

Sigtags

You need these little beauties whenever you post a response to a challenge. It's helping the mods to keep tracks of your participations (and in case you post to the wrong team thread). See them as kind of a business card, telling everyone which team you're on.

Sigtags Galore... )


Icons

Iconing around the fandoms... )


Graphic Mix

Fanart, Icons, Sigtags... )


Special - Joker Challenge

For this challenge, issued by our awesome mod kitty, we had to spread our wings (so to speak). There were games (like doing a labyrinth, finding words, do a quiz, a puzzle, or coloring a page), we had to post screencaps, do icons, sigtags, and last but not least, one big graphic - with all artworks somehow linked to the landcomm's general theme of card games.

A bunch of handsome guys... )


Team Battles

Next to the regular challenges, that are open to all members of all teams, each team can issue a so-called "battle" in order to get more points (most likely to happen among the first two teams). Usually, these battles are themed, but what you do with that theme, it's solely up to you.

Battlegrounds this way... )


Fanfiction

As a writer at heart, I can't resist writing challenges ;) So, next to the graphic challenges, I also wrote several stories for this phase:

Writer's Digest... )




If you have any questions about a challenge, how [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards works, or about any of the artworks above, just drop me a PM or a comment ;)

Summary: It’s only a few weeks after his suicide attempt, and the wounds on both his body and soul are still fresh and raw, but Neal feels the first strands of hope when he spends some afternoons assisting Elizabeth on an outdoor event in a park.

Notes: Written for both the “Winter Magic” challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] story_works as well as the Team Hearts December Battle for [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards. Sequel to “Airport Aftermath” and “Road To Recovery” (upcoming), set between Season 1 and 2.

Feel The Magic... )



The End

Summary: We all know that Neal ended up behind bars after the plane blew up. What we don’t know is how much drama, how much hurt was happening, for almost all parties involved.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards challenge #34 “Missing Moments”. Starts right after the screen goes black in “Out Of The Box”. Warnings for raw emotional pain (and maybe a lot more), as well as possible spoilers for the S1 finale.

Summary: Neal knows that love can be a many splendored thing. But he also knows that this, the love they share, with all the wonderful implications for the future, has to be the best he has ever encountered.

Life's wonderful surprises... )


TBC
One of the most famous quotes from the show is "If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, where you stop your story." Originated by the multi-talented Orson Welles, it has become kind of a metapher for Neal's story in the show. But did we all really get the happy ending? Well, I'll leave that to you to decide, at least from a writer's POV we have all roads open to our heart's desire ;) Anyway, this batch was made for Round 67 over at [livejournal.com profile] season20in20. Enjoy!

The final chapter... )

After the short interlude of Clint Barton icons, we're back on track with the Bomer Icon Festival.

Made for Round 64 of [livejournal.com profile] season20in20. Enjoy!

I participated in Round 1, and it was one hell of fun, resulting in a whole bunch of wonderful stories with our favorite characters. We always are in need of new story writers, so if you want to try your hand on writing a story within 24 hours, come and join the fun!!
