    Summary

    What if Joe met someone that helped him see the beauty in his imperfections at the beginning of season one? Someone that encouraged him to show the man behind the corporate big shot mask, rather than criticize his few attempts at authenticity. Can Kathleen Emory help him discover how it feels to be supported and loved by someone, or will her attempts crash and burn?

    A story of two beautifully broken people learning to heal together

    Summary

    Technically, it's Donna’s idea.

    Like some ideas, it started as a small spark, an almost missable detail that was nothing more than a beat, a flicker. She didn’t imagine what it could have amounted to… and what possibilities this could have opened for her, and for Cameron.

    Or,
    Cameron and Donna navigate Mutiny life and explore various forms of bondage together.

    Summary

    “At least 0.4%,” Donna says and she’s smiling, like she thinks she’s funny, like she thinks they’re friends. They’re not friends. “You need to stop thinking,” Donna moves on. She stalks towards her, she walks weirdly, Cameron’s never been able to describe it. She feels like she’s being hunted, but that’s too dramatic. Donna is kind and Donna is brilliant, but Cameron’s heard more about her than Donna knows. Donna saved 93.6% of her code but Cameron isn’t about to start acting like she owes her something.

    Summary

    “Can you look after the kids today?” Donna stood at the stove, body twisted like a mis-grown tree towards Cameron. Her hands framed her hips, her shirt bearing the soup-splotch of dinner.

    “Sure,” Cameron said, a handful of popcorn shoveled around the word. Donna eyed the popcorn, the soup, the stain on her shirt. “You are paying me for it, though, right?”

    Summary

    When the laughter dies down, Joe is buzzing, this low thrum of excitement all through his body. It’s a warmth, a glow, a radiance—it’s love, spreading from his heart through the length of his limbs, making him dizzy with it, his throat hoarse and his cheeks hurting, all of him melting. It’s the feeling ecstasy tries to mimic, the high he only gets from the best pills, and not even from it, maybe. For a fleeting second, Joe thinks he has never felt like this before, even though he knows that can’t be right, that he’s lived some full, delicious, crazy years, that he’s been in love his fair share.

    In which Joe finally gets laid.

    Summary

    “All right,” Joe says, propping one foot on the nearest chair, pushing up his sleeves. “I think the four of us—,” and he gestures with one hand, making a circle to encompass them all, “should date.”
    Cameron says “no way,” Gordon bursts out laughing, and Donna simply turns and walks towards the door.
     

    In which Joe thinks a pitch meeting is the best way to figure out polyamory.

    Summary

    Some shorts about Cam and Joe's Airstream antics.

    Part 1: On his first night staying over, Joe falls sleep after the barbeque, annoying Cameron. He wakes up early the next morning, can he make up for it? Hmm …? (S04E04)

    Part 2: After Bos’s heart attack, Cam and Joe go out the Airstream. Full of remorse, she confesses about helping Rover and tells him she loves him. This bridges the gap between that and their playfulness the next morning when Joe’s trying to come up with a snappy Comet soundbite. (S04E05)

    Part 2 is longer than intended and split into two: part 1 is angsty and part 2 is pretty smutty, and rating's changed to explicit

    Summary

    "I still dream about you time and time again
    While I've been sleeping in somebody else's bed
    And as my body aged
    The feeling, it never did"
    - Morbid Stuff, by PUP

    Sixteen years after best friends Catherine Howe and Donna Emerson were forced to separate when Donna's family moved to San Francisco, and left a now broken-hearted Cameron to navigate the hardest part of her life alone. Even all these years later, Cameron, who's trying to salvage a crumbling relationship with brilliant entrepreneur Joseph MacMillan, still dreams about having her best friend back. When it seems like what's left of Cameron's life is heading down the drain, she runs into Donna once again, and the memories of tweenhood come rolling back, as well as uncertainties that threaten to break Cameron entirely.

    Summary

    He thought being 'stuck' was her problem, but the truth is it was his too.
    He's just been that way so long, he's forgotten how he was before.
    Cardiff Electric's arrogant, manipulative and deeply misunderstood Product Manager, Joseph MacMillan Jnr. is in his bathroom, unhappily attending to himself.
    He's had a tough day, in amongst a whole raft of tough days and he's one of the hardast of hard-asses to push through them all. But this day was full of yet more unpleasant surprises forced upon him by his backward redneck bosses and he'd had to out play them for the good of the project.
    No, life was never a bed of roses for Joe, but the day had taken its toll, what with sabotaging the deal with a Texan rich bitch by screwing her toy-boy lover, and then helping out his girl-wonder, Cameron Howe, with her 'coding' problem.
    It seems he's never off the clock.
    She's now curled up, fast asleep in his king-size bed after a trio of orgasms that she won't forget in a hurry, and that pisses him off even more.
    All he wants is to get off and go sleep too, but neither his brain or body are co-operating. (S01E03)

    Warning: recollections of smut, and angst - lots of angst.

    Summary

    “What, you’re gonna tell me that you’ve completely moved on?” Donna asks.

    “No,” Cameron grits out. “I think about me and you every day.” A truth but one that seems to unsettle Donna. “And it makes me furious.”

    Donna pushes her hair back and sighs, “So let’s fix it. I want to fix it.”

    Cameron laughs, bitter. “I don’t.”

    Summary

    Let the games begin. (S01E03)

    Note: Ch. 11 is Joe's POV as Cam's asleep. Also posted as a stand alone: Stuck (Joe) (1983)
