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: Neal didn’t just do that, did he?

Notes: Written for challenge #6 “AO3tags” over at [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards. While there was literally a ton of tags that appealed to my muse, I finally settled on those from Feb 27, 2017. Title comes from a movie with Kirsten Dunst and means (according to urbandictionary) "Archaic 1920s American slang that in various contexts refers to one or more of "excellent", "stylish", or "impressive to the ladies"." Rated M for a reason (naughty boys!), peeps! Enjoy!

Summary: Phil invites Peter to S.H.I.E.L.D. Command when Neal and Clint are on a mission.

Notes: #6 in my “The Archer & The Con Man” series. Set about six months after “Meltdown (Of My Life)”. Written for Challenge #2 “Break The Ice” over at [community profile] gameofcards, using the prompts “break the ice”, “right as rain”, “calm before the storm”, “on cloud nine”, “take a raincheck”, “under the weather”, “fair-weather friend”, “head in the clouds”, and “lightning fast”. The handset that is used towards the end is based on the one Tony uses in “Civil War”. Enjoy!

Summary: In the wee hours of the night, a new father has a one-sided conversation – and kind of an epiphany.

Notes: Written for Round 5 of [livejournal.com profile] runthecon and [livejournal.com profile] tjs_whatnot’s prompt “Silver Lining and Gold Dust Dreams”. Set either in an AU after Season 4 or post-series. Title comes from an old song by F.R. David. A belated birthday gift for my dear friend [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13. 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: Peter and Neal take a break from planning their wedding to join their superhero friends in the first of a slew of Christmas activities.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards Challenge 37 – Holiday Word List, using all the words provided (ribbon, ornaments, icicles, mistletoe, elf, tinsel, jingle, gingerbread, wrapping, paper, presents). Head Nurse Robbins is named after Dr. Arizona Robbins from “Grey’s Anatomy” (who is a pediatric doctor), and Tony borrows a line from Eliot Spencer, who says exactly the same words in the pilot of “Leverage”. Set in my “The Archer & The Con Man” series, somewhere between “Date (With A Surprise)” and an upcoming wedding story.

Summary: Sara ponders her life, and the different kinds of games people can play.

Notes: Written for Round 3 of [livejournal.com profile] runthecon and the prompt "the games people play", given to me by the ever awesome [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13. Set in the gap year of the finale (and afterwards), but reflects back to events in earlier seasons and pre-series. Some events mentioned in there will be addressed in another story I’m writing at the moment (for [livejournal.com profile] wcpairings, so I can’t say too much about it).

As [livejournal.com profile] selenic76 put it so nicely in her last entry, fic recommendations can be a wonderful portal to a new fandom world. Now, Leverage is not new to me, not at all, and like with White Collar, the post-series stories are probably the best ever, since the possibilities their lives could have developed are pretty much endless.

This story is just this side of sweetness, with the typical traits fans associate with Eliot, Parker and Hardison spot on, only in smaller packages. (No, not a de-age fic!)

Just go and read it!

just something I whipped up last night when the plot bunny provided by [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 (both her post of screencaps and a comment on that entry) wouldn't let go of me. A heartbroken Neal finally realising where, or better to whom, he belongs.

It was a rainy day in Paris... )

It's done!!!

I finally finished both of my entries for the WC Reverse Big Bang, and honestly, I'm glad. While it was one kind of a blast, I was thrown into a loop by a sudden bout of writer's block quite in the middle, and that's just frustrating. But, as the saying goes, all's well that ends well (with a total word count shy below 40,000 words), and I can read the entries so far to this year's BB.
