  1. Summary

    The pupcake fandom on Ao3 has always been a lovely and supportive community, and in these days when many of us are necessarily limiting our real life socializing, that community has become even more vital. So a few of us have banded together to bring you a patchwork of (very) loosely interconnected stories, based on the surrealist drawing/writing game known as exquisite corpse.

    Each author is given just the final sentence from the previous story in the series and from that alone, they construct their own short fic. The stories can be canon era, AU, genre fiction, fluff, angst, smut - whatever the prompt might inspire! Then they pass on their own final sentence and the game continues. There is no set order, and anyone can claim a prompt that strikes their fancy.

    Summary

    Superpower AU (inspiration drawn from X-Men as you'll probably guess).

    Delia always prides herself on being brave, but maybe she sometimes gets that confused with stupid. When a piece of questionable information lands in her lap, she risks her job and her freedom to rescue a beautiful stranger from a terrible fate. Fortunately for her, this stranger has friends.

    Bless Delia's brave stupidity for throwing her into a world of espionage and vigilantism that leads to love, heart-ache and a depth of friendship she never thought was possible.

    Summary

    Following the collapse of the Final Empire, a rebel leader and hero of the Skaa is crowned Queen of the new government. In a show of good faith to the once powerful noble houses, Clarke of House Griffin has been invited to live with the rebel Queen to foster unity and trust between Nobleman and Skaa. Only Clarke knows nothing about the Queen. She hardly knows anything about Skaa. But Lexa, the Survivor of Hathsin, is no ordinary Skaa. She is mistborn. She is hope to a people who had nothing to hope for. And until very recently, she wanted every last noble dead.

    Summary

    The love story of Patsy Mount and Delia Busby, set in the eternal hereafter, San Junipero. Patsy is a resident of San Junipero, having chosen to remain in the hope of seeing her long lost first love, Delia, who suffered a traumatic brain injury from a cycling accident and never returned to London. The two women lost contact, and Patsy assumed the memory of their relationship was lost as a result of her lover’s injury. We meet her in San Junipero, where she travels with the married pair Yorkie and Kelly, traversing the decades in the eternal body of a 28 year old. Soon, some familiar faces drop in as visitors as they decide on their plans after death.

    Summary

    A canon-era AU where Patsy and Delia head back to Poplar in time to say goodbye to Barbara. Not an entry in my Song Shots series as it's three parts, but based on the song Echoes by Bo Bruce.

    (Note that Babs is very sick in this, but there's no actual scene of...well.)
